An interesting clip, not because it’s an actual “gamechanger” but because of what it suggests about Palin’s relationship with the party these days. This is the vid she went out of her way to hype yesterday on Facebook, in really effusive terms too:
Mark my words – tomorrow is the game changer! Tune in to hear common sense solutions that bury the false accusations that conscientious members of Congress have no solutions to meet America’s health care challenges.
If you’re like me, shaking your head wondering why all the miscommunication between Washington and the American people who have been saying, “Please hear what we’re saying about our desire for health care reform,” then tomorrow will be a refreshing time of clarity for all.
All Americans, and especially colleagues of House Republican Leader John Boehner: please listen to tomorrow’s weekly GOP national address. Rep. Boehner will highlight a common sense alternative to Speaker Pelosi’s 1,990-page government takeover of health care. I urge you to watch for it. For a preview, go to: http://HealthCare.GOP.gov
You’ll hear solutions. You’ll hear of real choices based on America’s proven free-market principles. You’ll know once and for all what the GOP and Independents have been saying all along about alternatives to another big government take over. After tomorrow, you’ll know that accusations against the GOP and Independents for not providing solutions are false. Those claims are bogus. There are alternatives. Tune in to Rep. Boehner’s address tomorrow to hear them.
I look forward to the game changer!
Here’s the clip; judge for yourselves. It’s perfectly fine as a brief summary of GOP alternatives to ObamaCare, and Byron York’s right that focusing on the size of Pelosi’s bill is a nice way to illustrate the growth in federal bureaucracy, but it ain’t changing any games. So why the big buzz from Sarahcuda? Because: Her endorsement of Hoffman, which acted as a benediction for grassroots activism against the GOP nominee, probably pissed off the House Republican leadership something awful. Once the tide turned and Scozzafava started to collapse, she could afford to be magnanimous and make a conciliatory gesture. Voila: A communique to her hundreds of thousands of supporters to watch Boehner’s address today, proving that she can be a good soldier for the party too. It’ll be interesting going forward to see if further “outsider” gestures are quickly followed by little favors like this to the GOP, just to keep the peace.
