Left-Wing "Guardian" Lavishes Huge Praise On Palin's New "2014" Video


Apart from the obligatory bit of sarcasm at the end of analysis of Paul Harris's Sarah Palin's Sarahpac video the respected, but leftist Guardian" newspaper has a surprisingly favorable article

AT THIS LINK

Here is an extract which,  given it is one step removed from the usual American hate mongers, can be fairly described as "fair and balanced".

Sarah Palin's 'Loaded for Bear': Mama Grizzly roars again

After a barnstorming performance at CPAC, the Tea Party darling is back – with her new advert, she wants your bucks for her PAC


Sarah Palin's 'Loaded for Bear' ad was released online late Wednesday

Who

Sarah Palin's back! But did she ever really go away? The conservative firebrand has released a new fundraising ad for her SarahPAC organisation that is capitalising on her remarkable performance at theCPAC conservative conclave just a few weeks ago. That speech – in which she mixed rightwing red meat with boob jokes and Big Gulps – delighted her fanbase and served notice that Palin intends to have a political future.
This new ad is the next step on carving out that role. Liberals may scoff, pundits may shake their heads, but Palin herself clearly still wants some form of political life. Maybe that will be a run for an Alaskan senate seat in 2014, maybe it will be as a backroom powerbroker on the party's right wing. Whatever it is, Palin is plotting and scheming and – as the delighted crowd at CPAC showed – she can still pack a powerful punch.

It is an internet ad. Obviously, that is cheap and also intended to spread virally, as well as via the "earned media" of news stories. When you are Sarah Palin and your new ad is named "Loaded for Bear", success is virtually guaranteed. It already has 50,000 views on YouTube.

How

But here is the shock. This ad is very good. Brilliant, even.
The entire ad is a mash-up of clips from Palin's speech at CPAC, a wide variety of commentators describing that speech as a huge hit and then a long list of Republican politicians paying tribute to her and thanking her for her help in getting them elected. It is well-edited and flawlessly executed, with the sort of gradually swelling soundtrack that the Obama camp used so well in 2008 and 2012. It is the sort of ad that makes viewers feel they are part of something bigger than themselves; a movement gathering behind an inspiring figure. There are few figures in American politics who can make their fans feel that way and Palin, it's clear, is still one.
The ad is fascinating on numerous levels. First is that its targets are not Democrats or the Obama camp. It is the Republican elite. At numerous times, the ad quotes Palin attacking her own party bosses:
"They talk about rebranding the GOP instead of restoring the trust of the American people."
Not surprisingly, there is no reference to the gag she made about her "rack" in the very same speech. She slams "focus groups" and "consultants" and makes a direct pitch to the conservative base – a group of people who have no desire to change the GOP after 2012's loss. It is heady stuff. For a woman who notoriously despises the "lamestream" media, she uses clips from journalists, including even the pinkos over at CNN and MSNBC, who all laud her pulling power with conservatives.
But the real key to this ad lies in what it says about Palin's ability to endorse other candidates.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz – who made a surprise introduction of Palin at CPAC – is filmed at length thanking her for her endorsement and saying how other up-and-coming stars like Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley also owe her a huge debt. The ad then mentions the 2014 elections and how 35 Senate races and 36 governor spots are up for grabs.

89 Photographs Of Sarah Palin Meeting CPAC Attendees

After  Scottie Hughes  published a rather silly article at Town Hall "An open letter to Sarah Palin "about Sarah palin being some sort of Prima Donna by not wading into  the crowds at CPAC she was taken to task by Palin supporters.

"Scottie Hughes, the author of today's OPEN LETTER TO SARAH PALIN, got hammered by the Palin Nation today and has posted two tweets:
"Today I broke the golden rule of Conservatism.. "Thou Shalt Never Say Anything Remotely Negative about The Sarah Palin!"-Consider me flogged."
"Glad to see @SarahPalinUSA has such loyal and devoted fans and I am glad to see their passionate responses."

It was only common sense that Palin would not do what she did at the previous years CPAC when she did wade into the crowd for over an hour.

Why? Because last year she was the prime, closing, speaker and this year there were others following. But why let common sense get on the way of an article which sought to denigrate palin 'in sadness" (baloney).

In undebatable answer to the article by Hughes, here is the CPAC photo essay of Sarah meeting and posing with a mass of people.

One of the last things ever to be thrown at Palin is that she is somehow above it all, and has no connection with the person in the street,  as well as the well connected-as the pictures testify at the link below. Click on it then click on the individual pictures.

First Anniversary For Palin4President 2016! Top Ten Most Viewed Blogposts (9/10 Were Photo Essays Of The Palin's)


First Anniversary for Palin4President 2016! March 24th 2012-one year and 125,000 page views later (for someone the media describes as "irrelevant" she sure seems to get a large number of views if the stats from my, part time, blog are any indication) here are the top ten most viewed Blog posts;

It is immediately clear that folks don't come to this site for my erudite opinion pieces. All the top ten posts are images of the Palin's except for the one report on the record breaking, for me, post on Sarah's possible path to Electoral College victory. 

That column with its stats and imagery at the various sites it was posted at, received a massive, and in the wonder scheme of things, highly credible 26,000 views just before the 2012 election. The interest in it is a harbinger of what is to come should Palin declare she is running in 2016.

The photo essays/compilations amongst the other nine posts are a pleasure and a delight, and are well worth a trip down memory lane at the links below and are in my opinion and also, apparently, in the opinions of about 15,000 viewers.

To all the positive people who viewed these, and all the other 455 posts my thanks for your interest and, most especially, thanks for your support of Governor Palin. 

A special thank you too to all the editors and readers, a special shout out to VG and Pete (including my sparring partners at Conservatives4Palin (LINK). Mary Beth House, Ian lazaran and Steve Flesher, Stacy Drake are a grand quartet who have been so supportive over the past year at C4P as have the other Palin supporting Blog site editors who interact-especially Josh Painter at The Sarah Palin Journal (LINK)

Palin vs. Rove And The 100-year War For The Soul Of The GOP

It is a cinch you are going to lose a fight you don’t even know you are in, and for the past 100 years, grassroots conservatives have been regularly trounced by the Republican Party’s progressive establishment elite because they didn’t really realize they were in a fight for the soul of the GOP.

Sarah PalinSarah Palin has drawn the ire – and the attacks – of the GOP’s inside elite because she rallied the Party’s grassroots conservatives and helped them understand that their fight against Washington (and its culture of cronyism, wasteful spending and “you scratch my-back I’ll scratch yours”) is as much, or more a fight with Republican insiders, like Karl Rove, than it is with liberals and Democrats.

In a very real sense, the roots of the Tea Party rebellion of 2009 and 2010 (which was as much a rebellion against the Republican establishment’s abandonment of conservative principles as it was a rebellion against Barack Obama’s policies) can be found in the thousands of grassroots conservatives who turned-out to hear Sarah Palin speak during the 2008 presidential campaign.

And when the election was over and McCain’s content-free campaign went down in flames, the grassroots looked to Sarah Palin for the conservative leadership and inspiration that no other major Republican figure was offering.

Suddenly, the peasants were outside Frankenstein’s castle with their pitchforks and scythes -- with Sarah Palin at the head of the rag-tag army telling them that the way to win elections was to unabashedly stand for conservative principles.

This made the lords of the castle, insiders (such as Bush architect Karl Rove, Bush and McCain advisor Steve Schmidt and Romney advisor Stuart Stevens, and those from the hinterlands who hoped to one day share in the castle’s riches, like Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus) exceedingly unhappy.

If someone started rocking the boat and educating the conservative Republican grassroots that content-free establishment Republican campaigns were a big insider joke (through which the insiders, like Rove, Stevens and Schmidt, made millions whether Republicans won or lost – and governance according to conservative principles was the last thing on their minds), then the entire feudal system of the establishment Republican Party would collapse, and they would be out an awful lot of money.

Sarah Palin’s message isn’t new – conservatives have been saying much the same thing since Teddy Roosevelt split the Republican Party to pursue his progressive agenda.

What is new is that, perhaps for the first time since Ronald Reagan became a national candidate, the grassroots conservatives who supply the votes, manpower and contributions to elect Republicans are beginning to understand that to get governance according to conservative principles, they first have to throw-out the current Republican establishment and then elect principled limited government constitutional conservatives as their leaders.

Leaders such as Sarah Palin.

We don’t know if Sarah Palin has any interest in running for office again -- who could blame her if she didn’t want to put her family through the vicious personal attacks that would surely ensue if she did -- but leadership in politics can take many forms.

Right now Sarah Palin is performing a service greater than almost any she might fulfill in public office, and that is rallying grassroots conservatives to reject the inside “business as usual” elite of the Republican establishment and demanding leaders who are willing to stand for, and fight for, limited government constitutional conservative principles.

If Sarah Palin can help conservatives win this crucial battle in the 100-year war for the soul of the Republican Party – and we are doing our part through The Liberty Prize and our soon-to-be-published book “TAKEOVER” -- then she will have earned her place among America’s great political leaders whether or not she ever again holds public office.

Dustin Hawkins Brilliant,Positive Analysis Of Palin's 2016 Prospects'"The Case for a Palin Candidacy for President"

At Ask.Com US Conservative Politics Dustin Hawkins presents a brilliant, positive analysis of the prospects for Sarah Palin for 2016. Hawkins de-constructs and destroys the leftist media's construct of "Palin" and makes the point that, once the voters get to know the real person,  they will rally to her. 

He also sees her as the antidote to Hillary Clinton as Palin would be the one to take the fight to Clinton, unlike the experience of the past two GOP campaigns, which proved that "nice guys finish last"


"Should Sarah Palin Run in 2016?

The Case for a Palin Candidacy for President





(Editor's note: This is not an endorsement. Leading up to the 2016 presidential nominating contests - which rest assured have already begun - all leading possible contenders will be analyzed from a conservative prospective. We will highlight the major benefits of all possible candidates.)
Democrats claim they would love for Sarah Palin to be the Republican nominee in 2016. They constantly write articles of her "irrelevancy," and mock her and write story, after story, after story about her. Because that's what you do with irrelevant people. Many Republicans are even wary of what her nomination would bring, noting that the media and entertainment industry assault on her has currently destroyed her public image. (Admittedly, the multiple family reality shows might be a self-inflicted wound.) And while they might say she is not electable, both John McCain and Mitt Romney were supposed to be very, very electable. The last Republican elected President was George W. Bush. He was pegged as an idiot. They laughed at his accent. The media set up "gotcha questions" to embarrass him. He was a silly born-again Christian and a right-wing extremist and a war monger. Sound like the media description of someone else? Oh, and he won.

Sarah Palin is Unafraid

If there is one thing about Palin, it is that she is not afraid to go after her opponents. She is tenacious. She would not back down. She would not apologize. She would not have conservatives hopping mad in her refusal to go on offense. McCain and Romney played nice while candidate Obama pounded them into the ground.

Should Hillary Clinton wind up the 2016 Democratic nominee, no nicey-nice candidate will defeat her. One could not have asked for a more reasonable, competent, and qualified nominee than Mitt Romney was in 2012, and it was mostly pointless. The only time Romney surged into the polls was when he methodically dismantled him in the first debate and went on the offensive. He then went on to play it safe in the final two debates - attempting to protect a lead - and the rest was history. Nice guys finish last, unfortunately.
We know the media will not go after Hillary Clinton. Whether conservatives want to admit it or not, both Bill and Hillary remain two of the most popular people in politics. No matter how bad everything might be by the time Obama is finishing his second term, she would be held no more responsible by the media than Obama was in 2012. While the Benghazi episode would have been enough to take any Republican administration down, neither Clinton nor Obama were held even remotely accountable. She will get a free pass, and the only person who can change the narrative is the nominee for president. But that nominee must also be willing to change the narrative. Palin might lose. But a week-kneed and "safe" Republican would be but a sacrificial lamb in the electoral slaughter that would be headed the Republican's way.

The Palin Myth: People Hated Her


Many think a Palin candidacy would be DOA because of her poll numbers. But are those poll numbers a reflection of what people actually have seen of Palin or just a reflection of the portrayal and constant mocking of her over the years? I made the same case for Romney as he was "disliked" in polls by people who had never heard him speak a word. When his poll and favorable poll numbers were low, 

I reminded people it was a result of both how the media focused on him and the image set by the Obama campaign. But when people actually saw him for the first time in the first debate, a strange thing happened: they liked him. Yep, he was nothing like what voters thought. His favorable numbers rose dramatically, and they were even above 50% by election day. He didn't win, but a lot more people liked him after they actually saw him than when they expressed an opinion based on a caricature of him. The same could be true with Palin. If anything, the caricature of her is so borderline-silly that most people would be shocked to find out she could recite the alphabet. And how many people think she actually said "I can see Russia from my house"? Palin took a beating far worse than any candidate in recent history. Could she reshape her image? While many memories of the 2008 campaign might have been erased, I've noted before that after her 2008 VP acceptance speech, Palin was easily the most popular of the four candidates:
A week after the selection of Palin, the Republicans would hold their nominating convention and Palin delivered a speech for the ages. Her favorable numbers immediately soared. In fact, her favorable numbers at that point were greater than those of Barack Obama. A CNN Poll had Palin's favorable ratings at +30 (Obama was +26), Newsweek had Palin at +30 (Obama at +20), and NBC News had Palin at +20 (Obama +21). The McCain-Palin ticket suddenly led Obama-Biden in 7 polls, tied in 3, and trailed in just 2.
Would Palin be a risky move? Well, how did the last two guys work out for us and who among the Republicans would be a better force to at least try to stomp her opponent the way they will stomp back?"
