Quotes of the day

posted at 9:00 pm on April 16, 2011 by Allahpundit

“‘We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic,’ Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. ‘What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.’ Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and ‘needs to learn how to fight like a girl.’

“Palin took issue with the GOP leadership for promising $100 billion in cuts from the current budget, trimming that pledge to $60 billion and finally settling for $38 billion in the recent budget battle.

“‘Then after some politics as usual and accounting gimmicks we found out — ya know that $38 billion? We’re actually borrowing that $38 billion,’ Palin said. ‘That is not courage, that is capitulation.’”

***
“‘When the history of the Tea Party is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten. And the 2012 election begins here,’ she affirmed.

“To drive the point home, Palin recalled the Green Bay Packers’ 2011 Super Bowl win, saying, ‘What better place to call out the liberal left and let them know, Mr. President, game on!‘”

***
“In the last few months, political professionals and insiders have been writing off the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate, convinced she won’t run for the GOP nomination in 2012 or ever. Then again, even those GOPers who are running can hardly compete with the MSM’s weird, all-consuming fascination with The Donald.

“But all it took was one powerful, pugnacious and presidential speech — just 15 minutes long — for Palin to again make herself completely relevant to the current political and policy battles raging across America…

“That line about fighting like a girl, as well as her ‘Game on!’ declaration will surely reignite speculation about presidential plans. And understandably so. Frontrunner Mitt Romney continues to fashion and refashion a saleable explanation for his Obamacare-esque Massachusetts health plan. And while Tim Pawlenty scored a coup with the hiring of hotshot campaign manager Nick Ayers, his embryonic candidacy is still a work in progress. There’s enough voter unease that another Mitch Daniels boomlet seems to be in progress.”

And yet, and yet…say what you like about Sarah Palin, but one of the things I find most admirable about her is that she has somehow managed to retain a sense of optimism and hope (has that word become irrevocably tainted?) for this country. I’m as skeptical as the next girl, but it just reads sincere to me. These days, it’s all too easy to just throw up your hands at this point and figure that the die is cast and that the Republic is doomed, but you never catch the tiniest hint of that with her. It would also not be unreasonable to expect that the experiences of the last 2 1/2 years would have left her bitter and cynical in general let alone still wanting to help this country, but that seems far from case. Now that’s what I would call a “remarkable” American (with all due respect to Mr. Huntsman).

I told you all the other night, its her time, its Sarah Palin’s destiny to undo Obama’s clusterfrak and lead America back to its greatness. This proves it. Oh, she’ll have to fight, the GOP establishment won’t like it. Ace will flip-out and proclaim DOOM!, when she gets the nomination – but, in the end she wins. And she will do so HER WAY.

Sharr on April 16, 2011 at 9:26 PM

I’m curious what people think about a possible Sarah/Rand ticket?

No, I’m not a Paulian either, but Rand seems to represent a significant portion of the tea party and has the right attitude about spending cuts. (And the way Obama/McCain went into Libya without even knowing what was up I’d rather vote for a Paul for VP than an Obama/McCain at this point.)

West is an impressive guy too, (though perhaps still to green in the political arena), and Palin/West seems to be a very popular suggestion that I’ve seen, but I think Palin and West both appeal to the same sub-group of the tea party and that Sarah/Rand or West/Rand might be a more unified ticket.

FloatingRock on April 16, 2011 at 9:26 PM

Palin — ‘What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.’

Lincoln knew it. Great leaders know it. To win you have to fight.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds

When I look at Sarah, I see her face marred by dust and sweat and blood, and she’s smiling through it all. I think of the poem “If”

IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise

Paul-Cincy on April 16, 2011 at 9:26 PM

Sarah Palin unleashed a withering critique of congressional Republicans Saturday, lambasting them for not cutting spending deeper and faster, and saying the party needs to “fight like a girl.”

Now I was no women’s studies major but I do believe that there is enough misogynistic language and enough sexist imagery in just that one paragraph to fuel at least a 10 page paper. Oh yes, Andy Barr, she’s quite emasculating ball-breaker, isn’t she? “Unleashing” her “withering” attack on the impotent old white men of the GOP like that. Gah.

cynccook on April 16, 2011 at 9:31 PM

Underestimate this woman at your peril.

She has the heart of a warrior, unlike many who purport to lead we Americans today.

She went right into the belly of the beast, with a sword in hand, unafraid.

This is what most of us want.

Courage to back up the right principles.

A fighter, a champion for us, and America itself.

You go get ‘em Sarah, I’m enjoying the hell out of watching it.

Then she pulled the curtains on Obama revealing he has no clothes garment by garment. Ending her speech with a vision of how “We The People” can overcome the challenges ahead. No wishy washy please them all, say nothing speech. BRAVO Sarah

I’m about to go out and celebrate two of my good friends who just got married last week.

I will also raise a toast to Sarah Palin, and hope she charges the GOP field like Maximus on white warhorse, swinging with gusto.

Later all.

Brian1972 on April 16, 2011 at 9:36 PM

‘What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.’

Reminds me of William Wallace…

“….Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don’t follow titles, they follow courage. Now our people know you. Noble, and common, they respect you. And if you would just lead them to freedom, they’d follow you. And so would I.” *sigh*

Paul-Cincy on April 16, 2011 at 9:26 PM

Or how about this one,

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

January 21, 2011
Sarah Palin, Combat Veteran
****************************

A study commission chartered by Congress is poised to send up to Capitol Hill a recommendation that the last remaining barriers to women – those that formally exclude them from infantry, armor and special forces — be removed.

As far as I’m concerned, we already have our

first female combat soldier, a breathtakingly brave warrior who suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune for the sake of our freedom, every day.
**************************************
**************************************

Sarah Palin stands alone in America and the world. Name one other public figure anywhere on the globe today who symbolizes the uncompromising fight for liberty….Waiting…Waiting…

As for her Republican rivals, blogger Kevin DuJan of Hillbuzz has sure got their number: they’re not activist members of a political party; they’re lazy guests at a Cocktail Party.

While Sarah is putting her life at risk — staffers say that since the Tucson blood libel, she’s getting death threats at an “unprecedented rate” — Mitt Romney can’t even bother to lead from the rear. He’s hanging around the country club, eating soggy cucumber-and-mayonnaise sandwiches, and waiting for Sarah to win the war. Then he’ll gallop on to the battlefield, hair stylist in tow, and flash his Dudley Do Right grin. Naturally, conservative pundits will traipse along and dutifully applaud his “gravitas” and outstanding presidential “qualifications.” So much worthier than Sarah, don’t you know!

As for Newt Gingrich, he took time off from his busy schedule of cuddling up to Nancy Pelosi on global warming, to sneak onto the battlefield and lob grenades — at Sarah. Hey, right back at ya, pal. Then there’s Mike Huckabee, who, when last heard from, was off somewhere exchanging diet tips with violent cons whose life sentences he had blithely commuted.

Tim Pawlenty, a ghostly presence at best, briefly materialized to murmur vague accusations against Sarah, and then faded into the woodwork once again. Wow! Leadership in action! All hail the mighty Tim!

You want leadership; you want steel spine; you want results? Helllooooo…What happened in Congress Wednesday? The House voted to repeal ObamaCare, 245 – 189, with the Republicans voting unanimously for repeal.

To whom do we owe this victory, more than anyone else, clearly and unequivocally? Sarah Palin. She showed us courage in real time, leading in every possible way: philosophically, strategically, tactically, and financially. Next to combat-hardened Sarah, every single Republican man is a trembling dwarf.

In case they haven’t noticed (they haven’t), we’re living through the most dangerously divided time in American history since the Civil War. As Abraham Lincoln once said,

“A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved – I do not expect the house to fall – but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.”
*****************
*****************

So it is in our time. Either we will quickly re-establish a government that fears the people, or the people will fear the government – permanently. Freedom is lethally hard to obtain, and frighteningly easy to lose. Right now, freedom is dying.

There’s only a woman. The Republican establishment loathes Sarah Palin; the conservative commentariat needs smelling salts at the very mention of her name; and the ruling class took a blood oath to destroy not just her, but her family, too.

This was definitely a shot across the bow at both the establishment and obama and the libs. People may say that the establishment won’t like her and not work with her.

Well, I will say this, there are corpses on the battlefields of Alaska of the establishment GOP that she took down when they got in her way of helping her state. That is when she was all alone and only had the people of the state to depend upon.

Like then as now, she does not have the establishment, she does definitely have the media, she only has the people. We The People!

You might be right.

I was very impressed with Palin’s reach out to those who were there to heckle her, both that she did so despite the treatment she receives by their leadership and many among them, and that she was truly sincere in doing so.

Her speech today was really top notch all the way through.

cynccook on April 16, 2011 at 9:04 PM

It’s because the sensible things she says won’t fit neatly onto a bumper sticker, nor can they be repeated in less than eight seconds. This means they go right over the heads of The Great Undecideds(tm).

tinkerthinker on April 16, 2011 at 9:52 PM

Gawd, How I love that ‘girl’ and her spunk!

Sadly, it’s unlikely she can win. The reason is, all presidential elections are settled by about 20% of the electorate who- over time- seem to absorb what the MSM has been saying about someone for a long time. It’s why she consistently polls as the loser. How I wish things were different!

I really don’t know what else to say but – when a party outright LIES to it’s base voters – what are we supposed to think?

They THINK we will suck it up and vote for them anyway – because there’s no way we’d vote for Obama.

But I have news for them – when someone lies to me – I don’t forget. Liars aren’t the answer to this nation’s problems … so there is really no use in voting for them. Better to stay home or vote for hopeychangey and wait for what comes next.

On taking office Palin, says her main job will be the economy, getting people back to work, energy, and a balanced budget, and West will be her liaison to the military to make sure we finish the job in Iraq and Afghanistan, to make sure our veterans are being properly cared for, and to improve relations with our key military allies.

Cain supported Boehners sham bill to the hilt and was not up for a fight. He’s one of the establishment Republicans that Palin was critical of in her speech—and that criticism is why I’m now contemplating supporting her for the first time.

So if she gets a surge in support out of this I think it will be for that reason, and if she turns around and chooses a lame establishment VP she will lose her appeal to people like me.

“Tea Party Americans won an electoral victory of historic proportions last November, We the People, we rose up and decisively rejected the Left’s Big Government agenda, We don’t want it, We can’t afford it, and We are unwilling to pay for it” — Sarah Palin

If no one else is going to stand up and say this, then, I guess it has to be Sarah in 2012. That’s just the way it’s going to have to be.

Paul-Cincy on April 16, 2011 at 10:16 PM

I’m curious what people think about a possible Sarah/Rand ticket?

I’m hoping for Palin/West.

Palin/Rand
Palin/West
Palin/Rubio

I can live with any of the three.

What kind of a world do we live in where Sarah Palin’s poll numbers are in the basement and Donald Trump’s are at the top? This is the kind of scenario where she really shines. I hope other people will see that, too.

Come to the Dark Side, We have Cookies.

If anything, Gov. Palin’s energy policy, I can envision as; eliminating the EPA. License offshore and ANWR drilling. Tax breaks for new refineries, and I could go on, but I need another drink.

Thank you both. Dad, and a group of his friends joined up on Dec 8th, 1941. They stayed friends, (and they and their spouses became godparents to the kids of our generation.) Marvelous examples of genuine heroes, who were also ordinary guys.

Rubio seems like a good guy but he really flubbed Libya, I thought. He jumped in with both feet without knowing what he was getting into. (Which proves that McCain, as well as Obama, was the wrong man for the job.)

I see Rubio as young enough and smart enough and a good enough politican to know which side his bread is buttered unlike Bush the first who couldn’t wait to overturn Reagan’s policies rubio I think will understadn he needs to build on Gov Plain’s when she leaves office.

I’m basically thinking which VP would make a good 2020 POTUS candidate.

So let’s see in a 15 min speech. Palin took on the GOp establishment, UNIOn leaders, the media, and Obama?

She made her case on why the TEa party is around, what they want from the GOP and what she is prepared to do if the GOP does not include the TEa party.

she also laid out a broadplan on where she would take the country by highlighting what she disagreed with from Obama and the GOP

I would say that quailifies as a very effective communicator. Would anyone wish to disagree?

Hell Pres Clinton would have needed a 3 hour speech to do that….and I doubt Mitt would ever be able to do that.

Also notice that Palin to the bes tof my knowledge is the only GOP candidate that came out today and defended Paul Rayn form Obama’s mean disrespectful attack on Wed.

Palin expects to have the upper midwest as battleground states.
