Scarborough: Why on earth wouldn’t you let Palin speak at the convention?

posted at 7:01 pm on August 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller, I couldn’t agree more. What possible reason is there to exclude her? She’s the reining vice presidential nominee; she gives a hell of a speech; she’s on a major roll in helping tea-party candidates win their Senate primaries; and she has a passionate base that’s lukewarm at best about Romney. If Team Mitt can find a slot for Rand Paul in the interest of keeping Paul fans inside the tent, they can find one for Palin in the interest of keeping her supporters inside. The only argument I can think of for why they might be lukewarm about her is that putting her back in the convention spotlight will further raise her profile, which might come back to bite Romney if Palin emerges as a major critic of his from the right during his first term. But that’s likely to happen anyway if he governs from the center, and she’s already sufficiently famous that the convention spotlight won’t do anything, really, to add to her platform. He’s better off making nice and showing her some respect. It’ll make conservatives happy and won’t alienate anyone except the most Frum-ian Palin critics. Seems like an easy call to me.

BTW, yes, I know that there’s a strong suspicion that bluegill is a Moby from Kos or some other website. Uses the same tactics, et al. However, even if so, you’d be surprised how similar the Left and the Establishment GOP are when it comes to maintaining power.

All criminals think alike.

victor82 on August 7, 2012 at 9:13 PM

She will bring the GOP to her. That is how she will take power. By the time she is ready to run for office, it will come to her naturally, because the Party will want to nominate her.

victor82 on August 7, 2012 at 9:10 PM

That is how it worked for Reagan between 1976 and 1980, and amid a liberal lapdog media that was far more monolithic than it is today…but I really hope you are right. I’m just not sure I ever see that happening.

You can’t just investigate people because you don’t like them. There must be a cause, some evidence of wrong doing. Chain mails don’t count. If you like random unwarranted conspiracy theory based investigations either travel back in time to Soviet Russia or just take the next plane to North Korea.

They’ll investigate the hell out of you.

Okay, Huma Abedin and her family are specifically mentioned, but the only accusations leveled are against organizations. Unless you’re denying the claimed connections of her late father, her mother, and her brother the allegation that she accused anyone of anything remains unsubstantiated. And while the Declaration of the Istanbul Process on Regional Security and Cooperation doesn’t refer to Sharia or blasphemy laws, it’s reference to the UN as “impartial” is somewhat suspicious.

I know I’m right. Palin has a lot more resources to work with than Reagan did, too. There are a lot more rank and file Republicans who have lost faith in the likes of Romney and Bush.

Things will move faster in Palin’s favor over the next several years. Unfortunately, she’ll have competition from the Paultards.

Huma Abedin has donated to “Islamic charities” whose accounts in the United States of America were subsequently frozen. If that’s not enough reason to investigate her ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the MB might as well be untouchable.

gryphon202 on August 7, 2012 at 9:17 PM

Remember when Palin’s book was a bestseller? Then Mitt Romney wrote a book that was also a bestseller — but only because of bulk purchases by the author.

Mitt might be worried about getting upstaged again.

I think he’d be smart to put all that aside and get her support. Granted he doesn’t really deserve it, but she’s a loyal enough Republican to give it anyway. And if she’s visibly supporting him, it won’t look so bad if her speech gets more enthusiasm than his.

Sorry, you keep on with the same little keywords over and over again.

Makes me think you are incompetent, childish, delusional about the importance of your position, and a little strange besides.

The fact is, despite your constant inflation of yourself, you are just wrong. Incorrect. Off base. Dare I say, biased.

Sure, Palin is not a perfect politician. So what? You dwell on and gratuitously inflate the few negative points you have seized on as to discredit yourself in the course of your statements.

A more balanced person would acknowledge the difficult and unique circumstances that led to her resignation for the Governor’s office, and the tremendous good she has done for the conservative cause since she left. Yet, you do all you can to minimize all that, and throw in just for good measure the old liberal talking point that she doesn’t write her Facebook posts or op-ed articles.
That is a give away. She does in fact do those herself, and she does a great job gutting Obama on serious grounds.

She also gives speeches that are very engaging, going through many issues that are serious, while also making the speeches fun to listen to with some humor. If, as you say, no one cares anymore why do thousands of people turn up when she makes an appearance?
Why do candidates tout her endorsement as a big deal on the front page of their websites? Why do the donations spike tremendously after she gives an endorsement?

What I am telling you is that it is true, conservatives can differ on liking Palin or not, ect. but the way you are going about this it would not surprise to see you claim that her youngest son wasn’t really hers, her hair is falling out, she had breast implants and she is going to leave her husband to run off with some professional athlete. The persistent rabidness of your brand of criticism, and baseless claims are not far from that sort of unhinged loony obsessive hatred.

Have a discussion, don’t just be a repetitive, predictable talking point machine gun.

Be big enough to acknowledge the good things Palin has been able to do. It will help you.

Brian1972 on August 7, 2012 at 9:27 PM

O/T:

In order to prove “defamation” of any kind, Huma Abedin would have to not only prove that her reputation was damaged in such a way as to cause her actual economic repercussion, but Michele Bachmann would have had to personally make a statement that is provably false. I predict Huma Abedin will not file a lawsuit over this EVER, on account of she knows it would be a waste of time and money.

gryphon202 on August 7, 2012 at 9:28 PM

What possible reason is there to exclude her?

The reality is that most everyone, including most conservatives, are sick of hearing about Palin.

Comical, really, since Palin speaks for a lot more than you do.

If Palin accepts an invitation to speak then it should be at 8:00pm on the first day … as far away as possible from Romney’s acceptance speech or he’ll look stiff and boring. She will outshine him amd remind everyone what a pity it is that we ended up with him and not her. Since she is going against the GOP Elites and what they want, she knows she would be in enemy territory… I honestly think she is okay with not speaking.

Momma on August 7, 2012 at 9:42 PM

Ron Paul is up to the same work so she has a rival, but Palin’s changes she is bringing to the GOP will probably be more lasting and more permanent, because the GOP is more conservative than it is libertarian, although it’s libertarian leanings lead me to believe that Palin’s movement will lead to an eventual unification of the Palin and Paulite movements that will take over the Party.

She will bring the GOP to her. That is how she will take power. By the time she is ready to run for office, it will come to her naturally, because the Party will want to nominate her.

victor82 on August 7, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Palin was the one, during the primaries, to say that the Ron Paul people should be listened to, that they shouldn’t be shunned by the party. So I think a lot of Paul supporters are already thinking positively about her. Great post!

The reality is that most everyone, including most conservatives, are sick of hearing about Palin. Sarah Palin is just kind of … eh. Yeah, yeah, she was treated unfairly by the media in 2008, but do we really need another speech from her? She never lived up to her initial hype in 2008, and to this day she has never broken out of talking in shallow, cliche platitudes. Paul Ryan and others will be vastly more worthwhile speakers.

Rather than get angry or super excited about Palin speaking, if she does make an appearance, most people will probably just groan or roll their eyes. Though we agree with her on most issues, Palin’s speech delivery sounds like a middle school student reading a book report… ugh, and that grating voice of hers can really get on one’s nerves after a minute or two.

However, I expect the Obama campaign will be thrilled if she speaks, because there’s no one they’d rather run against than an almost universally-acknowledged incompetent like Palin.

Let’s hope that, if Palin does speak, she keeps it short and sweet and doesn’t try to make it all about her, as she sometimes has a tendency to try to do. Despite what Sarah Palin and some of her worshipers think, she is not the center of the conservative political universe.

Bmore on August 7, 2012 at 9:52 PM

Yup. She keeps filling up those rooms. They need to open up standing areas and adjacent rooms with live feeds so everyone can watch her speech. Candidate after candidate keep asking her to help with their campaigns as a favour to people outside their jurisdiction so they don’t need to listen to Palin. They will take the full brunt of the people who wait for hours to see Palin. It’s a sacrifice those candidates are willing to do.

Sarah Palin is just kind of … eh. Yeah, yeah, she was treated unfairly by the media in 2008, but do we really need another speech from her?

I know, right? What gives with her and her speeches. It’s almost as if she thinks people are asking her to give them or something. But what do you expect with Palin? She thinks she’s so cool with no teleprompter and those 5 inch wedge high heels.

She never lived up to her initial hype in 2008, and to this day she has never broken out of talking in shallow, cliche platitudes.

Preach it! Her picks in 2010 were pure luck. Her principles of freedom, liberty, smaller government, balanced budget, etc. are shallow and cliché exactly as you’ve said. She should give up on that ludicrous dream. Spending big is the way of the future ahem. Centrist politics is where it’s at in the general and Palin is being left in the dust of a crashed economy.

Paul Ryan and others will be vastly more worthwhile speakers.

I agree completely. Granted they can’t fill a room like Palin, but what do you expect from a celebrity, right?

Rather than get angry or super excited about Palin speaking, if she does make an appearance, most people will probably just groan or roll their eyes.

Oh man. You know EXACTLY what is going on. Ratings go up on TV and she fills up rooms faster than anyone, not because people like her, but because they want to be first in line to roll their eyes at her. Everyone knows this.

Though we agree with her on most issues, Palin’s speech delivery sounds like a middle school student reading a book report… ugh, and that grating voice of hers can really get on one’s nerves after a minute or two.

Oh man, that Yes, we can speech by Obama was like sweet nectar err… sorry, I meant Palin is just irritating and can’t connect with the people.

However, I expect the Obama campaign will be thrilled if she speaks, because there’s no one they’d rather run against than an almost universally-acknowledged incompetent like Palin.

WeObama also wants Romney to run for President. WeObama was too clever and got exactly who he wanted. But getting Palin to speak at the convention would be an especially bad move for Romney. A REALLY bad move. High five.

Let’s hope that, if Palin does speak, she keeps it short and sweet and doesn’t try to make it all about her, as she sometimes has a tendency to try to do.

I agree completely.

We democrats should mitigate damages

, errr… I mean to say that Palin speaking for too long could draw media attention to her and overshadow Romney even though I’m trying to claim that Palin is a complete bore and my argument is self-contradictory, but these are stupid Republicans, so what do they know?

Despite what Sarah Palin and some of her worshipers think, she is not the center of the conservative political universe.

bluegill on August 7, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Damn straight! That title belongs to Obama. And think about how it would look with overflowing audience capacity all rolling their eyes at her in unison. The shame! And let’s not mention that Obama’s campaign is worried about filling seats because that shows the spirit of a real fighter that he can bus in people for the best interest of the country.

bluegill, with your undeniable arguments, I have no idea how anyone could be against what you say. The truth is so apparent that people will dismiss them at their own peril, aka put Romney in the White House … It’s time to stop the silly season and forget about Palin.

RINO TRAITOR AMNESTY-JOHN mccain and THE-SECOND-WORST-PRESIDENT-IN-AMERICAN-HISTORY carter are two monumental losers that no rational person would want to see EVER again. By letting these bottom-feeders speak at the conventions, the establishment pols prove, once again, that their heads are so far shoved up their “bill-mahers” that they haven’t a clue what the current, real world is like and what responsible, sane American voters want.

I must admit, though, that a problem with Palin speaking at the convention is that her speech might well dominate the event and overshadow Romney (as she did at the last Repub convention with the weak RINO TRAITOR AMNESTY-JOHN.) That wouldn’t be good – Romney is what Americans have as the alternative to the worst president in American history. Distracting from his chance to win by showing him up has to be avoided.

Jaibones on August 7, 2012 at 11:35 PM

If Team Mitt can find a slot for Rand Paul in the interest of keeping Paul fans inside the tent, they can find one for Palin in the interest of keeping her supporters inside.

I think that they really do not care if they keep members of the TEA Party/Patriot Movement inside the tent. They will take our votes and the win if they can get them. If the Institutional Republicans lose us for good, and lose the election; they will consider it a fair trade. Because they do not believe that the Left is the Enemy; but rather just fellow members of the Nomenklatura who can be trusted in the end a lot more than the base.

Do I want Sarah to speak and inspire at the convention? Sure. And that is probably the only part of the convention I would watch.

If there are elections, will I vote for Romney? Yes, but not out of any loyalty to him or to the Institutionals. More as being the only alternative I have to defend our country. Will I vote for Republicans down ticket? I will vote for Constitutional Conservatives down ticket.

And November 7 resets everything one way or another.

Please, provide references. Find one speech segment which can be said to be “all about her”. You cannot, because as usual, you are lying.

Actually listen to a Sarah Palin speech, instead of regurgitating Mika B.’s talking points. Every discussion point is about freedom, patriotism, founding principles, Constitutional conservatism.

What makes Gov. Palin powerful is precisely that she speaks to the heart of the issues. By the way, I do not worship a person, never have nor will, but I guarantee you that I am as strongly in support of the message brought by Gov. Palin as anyone. You see, it’s the message, and she is just about the only person in the country delivering the one that matters, politically speaking.

Answer the question. Prove that she has made a speech “all about her”. Link to an occasion when her words show that she believes herself “the center of the universe”. Make your case, rather than simply accusing Alinsky-style.

And when you cannot, then shut up.

Exactly. Some of what she says is just red meat for the ultra-right simpletons…but stupid she ain’t. She may be unelectable now – and that’s partly because she was tied to that Bush-lite oaf McLame – but
she found ways to make more money and be legally invincible while doing so.

MelonCollie on August 8, 2012 at 7:01 AM

I’ve taken an interest with the negative posts about Sara Palin and once I get by the adjective swearing and name calling there’s not much of a post. The media destroyed her and her family; I never found a logical reason for this behavior other than she speaks her mind and both parties are terrified of her.

mixplix on August 8, 2012 at 7:54 AM

As a Palin supporter I have to say I enjoy the reality that she can draw a crowd of people larger than most other GOP talking heads, she hasn’t run for office in almost 4 years and people are still interested in her opinions, other politicians seek her endorsement, she seems to stand up for her core principles regardless of attacks from bot the Left & the GOP.

And what makes all this even sweeter is that it all happens in spite of AHs here at HA who constant carp about everything she does. No matter how many times someone calls her a quitter nothing changes. The whiners are still going to whine, she’s still going to do what she thinks is right and people who support her are still going to think the PDS group are slug slime.

If Palin isn’t given a prominent speaking slot, then Romney has demonstrated that he is just plain too stupid to win this presidency. Harbinger on August 7, 2012 at 7:30 PM

Sarah Palin is to the right of Mitt Romney (and I mean substantially to the right) because Mitt is a borderline Leftist masquerading as a Republican. Mitt cannot risk having this highlighted by Palin.

Don’t get me wrong! I hope otherwise but Mitt isn’t a Conservative Republican by any stretch. This convention is going to be a convention where the Republican Party is officially taken over by moderates. Hence the current lineup up of RINOs as speakers.

This is Mitt’s offical coronation as the new Leader of the Republican Party and he isn’t about to let anybody throw cold water on any of it. Simply can’t take the risk.
