Rumor of the day: Palin to headline … Iowa GOP’s dinner next month?

posted at 10:02 pm on August 30, 2010 by Allahpundit

Alternate headline: “Blogger raises traffic expectations for 2011-12 from ‘bonanza’ to ‘apocalyptic.’”

Well-placed sources tell TheIowaRepublican.com that Sarah Palin is slated to be the keynote speaker at the Republican Party of Iowa’s Ronald Reagan Dinner on Friday, September 17th. The state party is slated to release more details about the event tomorrow.

The visit would be Palin’s first visit to Iowa since making a brief stop in the state in December of 2009 for a book signing. The visit to the First-In-The-Nation Caucus state is certain to create buzz about a potential run for president in 2012.

Her favorable rating among Iowa Republicans was 58 percent as of June, but when PPP polled the state two weeks ago, she finished fourth behind Huckabee, Mitt, and Gingrich(!). The leading theory as to why? Simple: She hasn’t spent much time there yet. And now comes tonight’s news. Hmmmmmm.

Here she is on Fox Business talking about the economy, Obama’s Iraq speech, and the Beck rally. Exit question: Is the Iowa speech a head fake or…?

I have to somewhat agree with ninja. She might not be a disaster, but I don’t think she would be the best choice. She is so hated by the left that it would energize the base that otherwise might sit out the 2012 election. She’s doing an excellent job right now picking candidates. Perhaps she could do a stint as RNC Chairman. Then Sec of Energy. Wait till the rhetoric cools a bit before a presidential run. She’s young enough to wait.

I mean I have zero problem with you voting agaist her but would you not pull the lever for her if she won the nod? I personally would like to wait and see who is going to throw their hat in and then see what happens before I make the call. I do like Sarah but I am willing to keep an open mind for the field.

Your sentiments is emblematic of the cowardice that our side always exhibits when faced with the little loud mouths on the other side. So the heck what if the media and their liberal rabble despise the woman. They don’t make a majority. 40% of the country is conservative and independents are tilting in the direction of the Tea Party Movement. Palin embodies the energy in the Tea Party Movement and is an unabashed conservative, committed to constitutional governing. What are you afraid of?

BitterClinger on August 30, 2010 at 10:23 PM

An argument can be made that the Dems will be revved up whether they face Palin, Romney, Huckabee or Gingrich. To me that is a non-issue.

But to me what is a huge issue who among the four candidates can convince conservatives to turn out en masse in 2012. One of the main reasons our side lost in 2008 was the McCain was unable to turn out millions of conservatives that normally vote Republican; they simply stayed home rather than to vote for the maverick.

Imho, why Palin would be the best candidate imho is that the conservatives on our side would come out for her and would not vote 3rd party either. And they would bring their conservative friends to the polls with them for her as well.

And finally Gallup had Obama had 35% job approval with WHITE voters in its weekly summary. If Palin could get 63% of the WHITE vote in 2012 it could be landslide similar to Reagan. That is really the reason why Palin is so dangerous. She doesn’t play identity politics. She is all about winning. She would not apologize if she got 63% of the WHITE vote but only 1/3 of the Hispanic vote as most of the other candidates would do.

Gov Palin is the energizer bunny for us conservatives and she just gets stronger. She is a kingmaker with her picks[will not always be right] and ticks off all the right people. However, I fear she could not be elected but will be be a formidable power broker in whatever position[or role] she decides to pick. She will be a conservative power for years. She is one of “us”[the little people] and we all love her for saying what we think,believe, and know. But the jaundiced press will be enough to peel away the required votes.

CyberCipher on August 30, 2010 at 10:47 PM

Got done watching the second part. the anchors were so trying to defend Obama. It was sickening. Palin handled the hostile interview well. Sticking to sound economic policy, telling Obama to give bush, McCain and the GOP creidt for the success of the surge and asking him to acknowledge he was wrong on the surge. Her answer about the Afgan surge was kind of boilerplate. Wish she would have went into the escalation by Obama of that war. But I think she did well to avoid it since it is a hot war and if you can’t say anything nice about the CIC during a war the best policy is thank the troops for a job well done which is the approach Palin took.

economicly she says the first thing needed is cut taxes, need to balance the budget by cutting spending not raising taxes. Taxes include regulations and fees. give states more freedom so they do not need the fed gov as much was also a good answer.

hit Obama for not tuning into the rally.

smaller gov, less spending lower taxes..strong military. No talk about social issue except she made a reference to the fact that man was made to work to be strive for success and gov should allow him too. also brought up the massive increase of those on the public dole.

wish she would have used the term Welfare queen….but probably better she didn’t…lol

Don’t get me wrong, I love Sarah and would campaign for her. I just don’t know if I could stand 8 years of Palin-bashing that would make the 8 years of Bush-bashing pale in comparison.

I defended President Bush the entire time and will never regret it.
I also plan to do the same for President Palin.
It’s a small price to pay to save our great Republic and get it back on a Constitutional course.

The LSM will bash any Repub who holds the office, so I wouldn’t let that deter me. Our media outlets are growing. We are able to counter them more and more with each passing day.

Will they serve Moose Steaks?.

so all the anti-palin types that say Palin doesn’t talk about policy I see they are more then ready to talk about Bristol’s babysitter but not the meat of what Palin stated on Foxbusiness.

Dudes, the difference with Palin than El Arbusto?

She fights back!

None of this “history will absolve me” crap.

Boy that pisses me off! Come on Fox Business. The caption read: Glen Breck R. Former governor of Michigan. Get it right.

She is so hated by the left that it would energize the base that otherwise might sit out the 2012 election.

BitterClinger on August 30, 2010 at 10:23 PM

Hmmm… So all the Left has to do to beat us is be extremely vicious and unrelenting towards our best candidate and then we’ll be too scared to nominate her? So the Left gets to pic huh? Not going to happen… I bet Sarah Palin will be our nominee and if so, I know she will win…

I love how the media just glosses over the fact that the middle class tax cuts under bush are just going to magically stay around because the dems have “pronmised” to keep them. Without any bills on the floor or any movement within congress to rewrite the law.

somehow becaus eObama and the dems have promised to keep the middle class tax cuts (but made no move in 2 years to save them) they are not going to go up on Jan 1.

the Gop must hammer the dems and the media on this Palin should have taken the oppurtunity to remind the anchors that the dems have made no move on this and that on Jan 1 everyone with a child will have a $500 increase per child in their taxes. that the 10% tax bracket is gone. that their taxes are going up by a higher % then the rich is.

IMO, your concern is unwarranted. At the moment, many people feel her view points are extreme. Do you? I didn’t think so. You’re informed. I have a feeling that the more her real story is told, by her, to the American public, the more the country will warm up to her and realize that the mfm has sold them another line of BS, just like Obama.
I could be wrong. I don’t think so though.

I can’t remember when she said it, but she said, “Heck, if I believed everything that’s been written about me, I wouldn’t like me either”.

If she decides to run, she doesn’t have to win many Republicans over to get the nomination, and she’s got two years to show the indies what she’s really about. All of her Republican opponents have their own set of negatives.

I thought she made some strong points during the FBN segment with Liz Claman.

She explained how she increased tax revenues in Wasilla by reducing business taxes and fees, making it a better environment for businesses to grow. She said, “if that can work on the local level, it can work on the federal level.

She reminded everyone that “neither Obama nor his advisors have any experience at running a business or making a payroll, bless their hearts”.

She recounted how as Governor, she cut spending and when asked about Alaska feasting at the trough of federal money, she strongly made the case that the Alaska people only own 1% of the land and if the feds would allow them to take advantage of the state’s God-given resources, Alaska wouldn’t need to be a taker, but instead, a contributor.

When people get the opportunity to meet the real Sarah Palin, their opinion of her will change. I think she’ll use the Tea Party movement to circumvent the media to do that. Her problem will be getting her message out to the indies, and I think she’s shown that her political IQ will serve her well to make that happen.

NoNails on August 30, 2010 at 11:19 PM

So the two memes are: She can’t win she’ll motivate the Left and She isn’t ready she’s too young? They change so often… lol it’s hard to keep up…

CCRWM on August 30, 2010 at 11:23 PM

Iowa will love her.

Maybe. But she did lose alot of political capital when she endorsed RHINO Terry Branstad. Conservatives I know were really upset with her.

Branstad is as rhino as they come. He has already stated that the Iowa Supreme Court has settled the gay marriage debate and there is nothing he can do. Last time he was governor he appointed a Planned Parenthood board member as his running mate. Raised taxes and increased state spending every year too.

So much for Sarah standing up for conservative principles..
