New SarahPAC video: Palin will be a player in the 2014 midterms

posted at 4:41 pm on March 27, 2013 by Allahpundit

There’s going to come a point where Karl Rove concludes that his new group will do more to mobilize conservatives against the establishment Republicans it endorses than it will to mobilize centrist or casual GOP voters to support those candidates. With Palin, the Club for Growth, and conservative talk radio on the other side, he’ll likely have to stick to bluer states where there’s at least a chance that grassroots righties will give his candidates a pass in the primary on “electability” grounds. Maybe they’ll let him slide in, say, Colorado, Michigan, and Minnesota. Where else?

I’m curious to see if she takes a position on the Senate primary in Alaska. Joe Miller, whom she endorsed in 2010, might run; so might Sean Parnell, who served as her lieutenant governor and later succeeded her. That’s an easy call for Rove’s group given Miller’s tea-party cred but more complicated for her.

IMNHO – If Palin wanted to to she could mount a credible R run depending on her position on the coming amnesty bill. We already know her opinion on SSM which hasn’t evolved yet( has it?) so she already has a nice fat demographic. And the way the anti-amnesty pro and traditional marriage crowd has been spit on they wont be as easily swayed by the MSM/Alinksy hits.

I’m not sure what her game is though. I don’t trust her any more then I trust any of them. Maybe it is for the money now.

If Romney Had won:

Breaking News: 03/28/13: Reuters- The Supreme Court ended 10 days of deliberation on the Defense of Marriage Act. President Romney in a statement made earlier today says he hopes that the Supreme Court can make a ruling that can make both sides happy. When asked about his own stance on Gay marriage, the President said “Since taking the presidency I have seen both sides of this issue. Many of my fellow Republicans are coming out in support of marriage equality which is a great shift in the right direction. I feel that as a nation, the evolution on this issue shows a maturity of what true liberty is and what out founding fathers had envisioned.”

And media loves covering her because 1) the media is liberal and so Sarah Palin is the poster girl for idiot republicans every time she opens her mouth, and 2) like Ashley Judd, everybody loves a freak show.

She really is the conservative version of Ashley Judd. Except much funnier. Ashely, too, had delusional liberals touting her chances. But the democrat party, and even Ashley herself, realized it could never work and thus it was all kabuki theater. But Palin’s fans don’t know what kabuki theater is. They think it is a Japanese dinner show.

For that reason I can support SP. Her words are always right and she’s got a megaphone. But we need someone to take it to the GOPe and DEMS on a national stage for a full campaign year. She endorses candidates that run as conservative but some of them end up backing some dangerous propositions.

Of the 27 candidates Palin endorsed in 2009 and 2010, 22 of them earned victories.

In 2012, she endorsed the following winners: Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Pat Toomey, Nikki Haley, Deb Fischer, Jeff Flake and Ted Cruz.

Gov Palin made sure she who was going to replace her. She went to work in the private secotr making enough money to pay off all the debt the liberal attacks casused her and her family. She left only after every campaign promise that she promised the voters was accomplished. hillary didn’t accomplish one campaign promise and quit when something better came along. Tell me again who had the better character?

I liked DeMint, Palin, Cruz(so far) a few more. I’m not a fan of Rubio, Paul or any senator backing immediate legalization of illegals. Martinez, Scott or any gov who folded on Ocare. But that’s another thread.

Palin IS a Reagan republican. Maybe the last of them but she’s not running a national campaign. When a Reagan conservative runs for president and gets a year of press and the debates to make their case… that’s when we might change the tide.

“…she unlike many of those GOP hopefuls can fill large stadiums with voters and they vote in her endorsed candidates. That takes a lot more then a small narrow group. You don’t pull a person from 4th place to lead in a daqy by your endorsement if your following is small. Huckabee has a small following. Rush has a large following.”

unseen on March 28, 2013 at 11:23 AM

Sarah Palin’s influence is largely confined to a segment of the conservative base of the Republican Party, and yes, it’s true, that segment of conservative Republicans can fill stadiums in certain areas of the country. Her endorsement of certain candidates, especially in red state GOP primaries, can have a decisive impact because Republican primaries are where the conservative vote has the greatest weight. However, that influence does not carry over into general elections, where Democrats, independents, and Republican moderates would negate the conservative vote. Logically, this would be especially true in blue states such as New York or Massachusetts.

Never say never, I suppose, and anything’s possible, but if you and yours are insinuating that Sarah Palin has a feasible shot at the GOP nomination in 2016, I think you’re mistaken and even more strongly doubt she’s considering such a move.

This is great. Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving. Teasing her deluded fan base into opening their wallets and teasing the media into covering her. And media loves covering her because 1) the media is liberal and so Sarah Palin is the poster girl for idiot republicans every time she opens her mouth, and 2) like Ashley Judd, everybody loves a freak show.
She really is the conservative version of Ashley Judd. Except much funnier. Ashely, too, had delusional liberals touting her chances. But the democrat party, and even Ashley herself, realized it could never work and thus it was all kabuki theater. But Palin’s fans don’t know what kabuki theater is. They think it is a Japanese dinner show.

I have always been a supporter of Palin. Look at my user name. I just did not like her endorsement of Newt. I think she fell for the con that is Newt Gingrich. I also think that had she endorsed Santorum or Perry, Romney might not have gotten the nomination. Palin was and is my first choice to be President. I think that only she has the courage to take on the permanent political class in Washington.

bluegill on March 28, 2013 at 5:47 PM

However, that influence does not carry over into general elections, where Democrats, independents, and Republican moderates would negate the conservative vote. Logically, this would be especially true in blue states such as New York or Massachusetts.

Never say never, I suppose, and anything’s possible, but if you and yours are insinuating that Sarah Palin has a feasible shot at the GOP nomination in 2016, I think you’re mistaken and even more strongly doubt she’s considering such a move.

Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S.

Overall, the nation has grown more polarized over the past decade

by Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ — Political ideology in the U.S. held steady in 2011, with 40% of Americans continuing to describe their views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal.

tha tis the “small core group of Palin supporters” That is why she is still relevant. She speaks to 40% of the population. Even if only 50% of the conservatives or 25% of the conservatives follow Palin you do understand how “big” of a group that is right?

As far as your contention that she can’t sway elections in blue states. First of all there were many Tea party candidates that won in 2010 in blue states some of Palin’s endorses but lets say you are right. Who cares? Mitt lost every blue state there was and most purple states. the last person on the GOP side to win the blue states was Reagan. Bush didn’t win one blue state and became POTUS and he wasn’t even conservative.

And if the “moderate” republicians would rather vote for aliberal than a conservative again so what. We ran a moderate in 2012 and the moderates still voted for the liberal in the blue states.

as far as the nomination goes Palin has as much shot as anyone else. She didn’t have a 90% approval rating in AK for no reason.

(From Chuck Heath Jr’s Blog)

“I’m proud of what Sarah has accomplished and what she’s continuing to try to do for this country. I don’t know anyone who has her courage and drive. She’s never been afraid to step out and say the things that millions of patriotic Americans think but are afraid to voice publicly. She has endured more than most people could ever imagine: from vicious verbal attacks on her children, to real threats on her own life… all because she’s felt compelled to speak out in an effort to get this country back on the right path.”

“Thanks for all you do Sarah.”

In a normal world, one could agree with your point.

But Queen Shillary is on deck warming up. And so will the War on women. Again.

A huge Romney mistake was not selecting a woman for his VP. I think Ryan is a great guy and think he is more of what DC needs- but in the long run – he didn’t move the needle much- and an opportunity was lost to win the women back.

And while we dismiss the hypocrisy and stupidity of their Reps War on women argument- it works -it sells to women – who are the majority voting base.

Send another white guy up against Shillary, well fugetabboutit.
Shillary is probably a lock to win anyway – so send Palin up against her and have some fun.

She did not endorse Newt. She wanted to see the primary process work instead of the establishment picking the nominee. At the time she said, “If I lived in SC, I’d vote for Newt, he was the one who was the biggest foe of Romney. Her point was simple: “Don’t give up. Don’t let the powers decide.”

Mitt didn’t pick a woman because his team wanted to make sure that the mention of Palin never came up in the general election. It’s why they barred her from the convention. Why they never sought her help and part of the reason why the name TEA party was outlawed from the convention. Mitt believed what the MSM told him that Palin would hurt more then help him. thus he lost. there were many good woman and many good conservatives out there that could have helped Mitt get voters to the polls. Instea dhe choose someone that the base kind of liked but had strong ties to the establishment. A very safe picvk in Ryan. And it showed by not moving the needle one inch.

I would like to see a young Palin full of energy agains tthe old town drunk Hillary.

All Palin worshipers like you ever do is bring up Mitt as a way to deflect honest criticism of your heroine Sarah Palin. We are not talking about Mitt. It’s like you are obsessed and jealous of the man. I know it must be hard to defend an obviously incompetent national joke like Sarah Palin who does more harm than good to Republicans and who can’t even form complete sentences during unscripted interviews, but try to do it.

Sarah Palin as the nominee probably couldn’t even win more than 6 or 7 states, if that. She would ensure a 20-point+ Democrat blowout. Sad to say, but she isn’t even capable of taking part in tv interviews without revealing how shallow and inept and unqualified she is. The commenter earlier who said Ashley Judd is the Dem version of Palin was absolutely spot on.

Sarah Palin is the Democrats’ dream candidate because she is an incompetent, anti-intellectual joke who is taken seriously only by a small, deluded sliver of the GOP. Most of the rest of us nod and smile politely when Palin is mentioned, but the truth is that we know the woman is so not ready for primetime it isn’t even funny.

We can admire Palin while still pointing out the fact that she helps Democrats more than anything and that she would ensure a Democrat landslide if we were ever foolish enough to make her our nominee.

Sarah Palin’s Alaska was an eight episode show. That’s what it was planned to be and that’s how many episodes ran. Failed? Hardly. It was one of TLC’s successes. She was offered a second season, but turned them down.

Horrendous actress? When was she acting? It was more of a travelogue to promote Alaska than it was a reality show.

Yes, when the woman quit her job as governor before even completing a single term, I think it sealed the impression in most people’s minds that she wasn’t a serious person. Sarah Palin likes to whine about the media, and it is true that the media have treated her badly, but Palin’s terrible reputation as a gimmicky joke is due as much to her own failures, laziness and ongoing displays of incompetence.

It is sad to think of what could have been with Palin. However, the good news is that we have many more, vastly superior conservative stars in our party like Walker, Cruz, Rubio, Ryan, Paul, etc. Most of us are glad to close the book on the embarrassing chapter that was the Sarah Palin clown show.

I guess exposing the corruption and collusion between the corrupt republican politicians and the big oil companies in Alaska was not serious. I guess making the oil companies pay the people of Alaska what they were owed is not serious. I guess giving birth to a child that she knew would need lifelong care was not serious. No, what the left and people like you don’t like is the fact that Palin refuses to sit down and shut up even when she has been attacked relentlessly.

Palin is one of the most courageous and accomplished public figures of our time. Tell me, what have Walker, Cruz, Rubio, Ryan or Paul done that is superior to Palin?
