Governor Palin: "Appreciate Howard Dean Acknowledging There Are Death Panels In Obamacare

Palin: I Appreciate Howard Dean Acknowledging There Are Death Panels In Obamacare

PALIN: Well, you know, it wasn't just me saying there were death panels in Obamacare back in 2010, I mean anybody who could read could read into that, it's a faceless bureaucratic panel that will decide based on a human being's level of productivity, a subjective and political decision being made as to whether they deserve medical care or not. Yes, that little girl is a prime example of a bureaucrat being able to make that decision. It's a scary thing.

HANNITY: And now even Howard Dean is acknowledging this. Howard Dean? What did you make of the op-ed that he had out there?

PALIN: I haven't read his op-ed. I haven't wasted my time on it. I think I, and others, wasted too much time listening to the liberal pundits a few years ago when they said that was the biggest lie of the year, my claim that death panels were a part of Obamacare and the rationing of health care services. And now that has been proven to be true. I guess I could say, ungraciously that I appreciate Howard Dean acknowledging it, finally.

Left Still Can't Get The Answer They want from John McCain About Palin

Here is John McCain on his choice of Sarah Palin  in response to the left who are just dying for him to repudiate her but sadly for them the answer they look for never comes. In fact this is one of his strongest endorsements.

On picking Sarah Palin:
I think historians will decide that facts are stubborn things. We were four points down when I chose her and three points up afterwards. She held her own and, some people said, won a debate with the vice president. She did everything I ever wanted. She excited our base in a way I was unable to achieve. And then I watched the shredding and destruction to destroy a good and decent person by the liberal media, beginning with Katie Couric. Not only do I not regret it, but I have probably not seen anyone in American life savaged like she was, particularly by the liberal left.

Caller Who Asked Limbaugh For Support Of Sarah Palin Leading America Identified

Rush Limbaugh responded to a caller about Palin and headed the transcript on his site. It is wonderful to see the depth of support for Palin, no matter what the Dem poll firms say and her backing by genuine conservatives like Limbaugh and concerned people like Greta.


Caller Wants Sarah to Lead Conservatives



CALLER: That's what I was saying initially. In other words, you really got Washington, the establishment, against the American people. The current Republican establishment is tied at the hip with the Democrats. So basically you've got a new second party, really forming around what Sarah Palin is saying, and she could be the titular leader. She's the head of it. RUSH: So you're excited about Sarah Palin maybe providing the impetus and the leadership at least titular for a new Republican Party? 

 CALLER: I think she's the most prominent one. I keep saying if she gets out there, like when she was on the Greta show the other day talking about it... If she can get out there, I think... I mean, obviously she provokes a lot of emotion in people pro and con, but if she can get out there and get her message across, I think they're afraid of her in Washington. 

 RUSH: I don't doubt that. 

 CALLER: Republicans and Democrats are afraid of her and what's got a new -- R

USH: They're not gonna cede -- c-e-d-e -- anything to her, or to anybody else, for that matter.

The caller, a patriot and Palin supporter (one and the same) has self-identified with avatar at Conservatives4Palin AT THIS LINK and gives this background.




SonOfOriginalTed 

Within 24 hours of my call that, as our only hope, Palin NEEDS to (and can with a fight) take over the GOP, Rush has come to my conclusion, announcing it on national TV (as Reagan did vis a vis the GOP years ago).
I believe Greta heard my phone call too"

Governor Palin Was Right All Along ~ Death Panels Are Real ~ Sarah Palin With Hannity

Governor Palin With Hannity sounding self-assured,self-possessed and highly knowledgeable on the subject, its ramifications and the various leftist enablers.

Conservative (i.e. Correct) Analysis Of The PPP (Dem) Palin Vs Begich Senate Poll

PPP Polling is a leftist polling outfit (obsessed with same-sex marriage polls) which takes every chance they can to denigrate Sarah Palin.  There may be some same-sex background to this or just straight out bias as would be expected form the Daily Kos pollster but whatever the reason, the anti-Palin bias reflects poorly on what purports to be a professional outfit.

For example, in the poll on the Alaska Senate race, PPP's Tom Jensen  states that "Palin is hated by Alaskans with a 59% disapproval rating" but then goes on to advise that President Obama is simply "an obstacle in Alaska with a 59% disapproval rating." Those sentences put PPP into perspective.

It must be fairly stated that in the nationwide presidential election PPP did extremely well getting a near perfect result in their final state by state predictions in the Obama versus Romney race. 

However on the state and senate level they often go massively awry, (they predicted Cruz and Sanford would lose for example) and there is no reason to take their Alaska poll seriously when they advise that Senator Begich would "take 20% of GOP votes if Palin ran against him." Even on their head to head polling it would only take a normal shift of the "20%" back to the GOP on election day, especially if it was clear that control of the senate hinged on the Alaska result, for Palin to win. Here is a good point in respect of the poll's bias;

PPP 's Alaska poll has 46% that are solid Democrat/Left wing that is about 8% too high.
  1. PPP and Harper Polling did polls last time in Feb , Palin was down 16 in PPP and Harper by 7 . Palin-Begich is a 3 pt race


What can be taken from the poll is that if PPP states that Palin is the choice of Republicans for the senate nomination, then she surely is. The idiots on the left who are carping that Palin has only 36% support can't see that if she runs and Miller pulls out, which would be likely, then the majority of his conservative support would go to her and she would be near or above 50%..
The highly respected "Electoral-Vote.com predicts Palin would defeat Begich "in this very red state"

Here is Conservatives4Palin's take which links to Hot Air's generally positive take on the poll which includes the polling data.

The Alaskan-Senate PPP Poll Proves Governor Palin’s Point


PPP released a poll today which focuses on the 2014 Alaskan-Senate race.  The fact that the mainstream media is using it to create “Palin” headlines proves why she was right recently when she told Sean Hannity that the GOP needed the right candidate to take down Senator Mark Begich.
It’s apparent that Republicans in Alaska believe Governor Palin is far more capable to face Begich than the other GOP choices put to them.  She leads the others by a 10 point margin.  Another poll conducted by another firm a few months back proved the same thing.
But what the poll also shows is that all of the Republican contenders – at this point – fall short of Begich in a general matchup creating the impression that he’ll coast to an easy reelection.
There are a few points to ponder here.
First, general election match-ups this early aren’t much to measure for anything long term.  Governor Palin stated that we needed a formidable and capable candidate for good reason.  As it stands right now, most Alaskans are under the false impression that Mark Begich is an independent.  The Alaskan Chameleon has received more media attention for being a Democrat who occasionally dissents from his party in D.C. than he has for being a liberal who voted for ObamaCare or amnesty for millions of illegals.
The facts are simple.
A.)  Begich won by the skin of his teeth in 2008 only after Ted Stevens was under massive investigation (the late Stevens was cleared on all of that after the election.)
B.)  Since then, Senator Begich has voted with Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid 90% of the time.
C.)  Alaska is a solid red state.
The candidate who faces him in the general election will have to be able to effectively transcend the perception of Begich being an independent as the utter hogwash it actually is by exposing him as the chameleon who votes one way occasionally, but the wrong way most of the time.  And even though the points above prove that it’s completely possible, it just hasn’t been done yet as the right candidate to officially jump in has yet to surface.
As this poll proves, Alaskan Republicans know that Governor Palin’s record as a reformer, campaigner, and a fighter proves she’d easily fit the "right candidate" mold if she chose to do it.  She could also be very instrumental in helping another candidate yet to surface.  And the media’s use of a poll which focuses on many facets of an entire race only to turn around to make the headlines all about her proves it, too.
Either way where Governor Palin is concerned, it’s game on for the Alaskan Chameleon.
 Updates:
A reader made the following point:
Another point to add is that Public Policy Polling has a severe liberal bias. They always claim the most Conservative candidates have no chance of winning in the General elections: in reality Palin would destroy Begich.
Yes many believe this.  I also believe Gov. Palin could win hands down.  Yet, I wanted to take the opportunity to explain Governor Palin’s broader point about replacing Begich.  Because of the perception as his being an independent by many, the right candidate with the ability of effective messaging will need to expose the real truth regarding his big government voting record.  The announced candidates thus far seem to lack that.
Also, (h/t Doug) an interesting piece about the poll has surfaced at Hot Air.

"Sgt.Mom" Gives An Heartfelt "Rant" About The Vilification Of Sarah Palin & Shattered Hopes

In a self-described "rant" (and good for her) "Sgt. Mom"  at "Chicago Boyz" LINK describes the enthusiasm she received the news of the nomination of Sarah Palin in 2008 and her reaction to the ensuing vicious, unprecedented leftist campaign of vilification
***************************************************************************

So, when Sarah Palin swam across my ken, upon being honored with an invitation to become the GOP VP nominee, I was delighted. No, really – and so were a great many ladies of certain age of my acquaintance, many of them actively employed or retired from a lifetime of work at it, some of them in defiantly non-traditional specialties and living arrangements. Intelligent, hard-working, 

happily and bountifully married, popular in her district and among those she had served and who had elected her, outdoors-loving and a partner in hubby’s enterprises, educated in much the same way that I was – community college and upper division at a state school? 

Hey, what wasn’t to like? A serious woman in serious business, and about to ascend politically as had not been seen since Gerry Ferrero in ’84. Well, as Bertie Wooster would have said in a much more innocent age and place, “Huzzah! Huzzah, and Huzzah again!” 

A woman in the second highest political place in the land! A woman’s place is in the House … and Senate … and in the VP’s office. Women-power has arrived, baby! Alas, not to be, for it seemed that Sarah Palin was Not The Right Kind, Darling, and the blowback was vicious beyond anything that I had ever seen, save maybe the savaging of LBJ in the late 60’s. 

The upper-class, establishment-elite, academic, and capital-F feminists were the most vicious of all. So much for sisterhood, ladies; not what I assumed feminism would be – what you have is Mean Girls writ large and nationally. So sad, ladies – it seems that the women’s movement, despite all claims to the contrary by the officially-declaimed mouthpieces summoned up by the established media/entertainment orgs, is only for the benefit of the properly anointed. The rest of us are on our own. We have the support of husbands, churches, communities and friends, I guess. But not the anointed Official Capital-F Feminists.

Sarah Palin: ‘Phony scandal’ pushback coordinated by White House

Armed with her "redneck whiteboard," Gov. Palin appeared on Fox News' "On The Record" Friday night and discussed the Obama Administration's recent spate of scandals with host Greta Van Susteren:


The former Alaska governor revealed that one reason the nation is being subjected to these scandals is rooted in the restrictions John McCain's campaign handicapped her with when she was the Arizona Senator's running mate in 2008. Off limits, the governor explained, were topics such as Obama's thin resume and his connections to confessed domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and pro-Marxist pastor Jeremiah White. “I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those ‘elitists,’ those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine, running John McCain’s campaign at the time said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things,” she said. Saddling the campaign with such restrictions, Gov. Palin argued, led to Obama's election, reelection and ultimately the scandals.

"Which one does he, specifically, consider a phony scandal?" the Mama Grizzly asked, referencing conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg, who asked the same question. She claimed that it was no coincidence that Obama and members of his White House staff are using the same phrase. "It is all coordinated," she added.

Gov. Palin likened the administration's tactics regarding the scandals to a basketball team's stall play, running out the clock and "hogging the ball," a style of play the former high school state champion point guard called "cowardly." When they see the tactic employed, she said, "the crowd gets up and leaves." But not the media. "The media will stick with him," she predicted, because "they are part of the problem." The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate declared, "Americans are smarter than what the lamestream media gives them credit for." Continuing with her basketball analogy, Mrs. Palin observed that the media is supposed to act as a referee, "but they won't do their jobs." The media, she said, are "lapdogs" for Obama and his administration.

(UPDATE#2;Positive Photo's In Denver) Photo:Sarah Palin at US Air Counter-Accused of "Do You Know Who I Am' Without Proof

Here's a positive photo of Sarah delayed in Denver-but still willing to pose with folks:
Embedded image permalink
And another
Met tonight at Denver International Airport. Nice woman. Really down to earth.
A nobody tweets this and doesn't provide any proof to his statement-people will say and do anything to attack Sarah

"Soooo this is Sarah Palin trying to use the "Do you know who I am bit" to try and get a sooner flight. Ours was delayed 3 hours."

New Republic's John Judis's Brilliant Analysis Of Palin's RNC Speech And Perot Voter Appeal; Key To 2016

New Republic Senior Editor John B. Judis gave his views on Sarah Palin's momentous address to the 2008 Republican National Convention just after her speech. Judis made some sharp, pithy and right on the mark comments. And in particular, in answering his colleague Michael Crowley's questions, showed amazing prescience. Of course given the immediacy of the moment, some of Judis's negative remarks were not entirely prophetic, but were understandable given his liberal bias.

For example, the supposed "scandals" that Palin was purportedly involved in in Alaska turned out to be media and leftist blow-ups. But in one area Judis made a comment which is now entirely relevant to the 2016 election. When questioned by Crowley if he thought that Palin's attacks on candidate Obama were "too negative" Judis replied with an important observation:

 "I was thinking afterwards, what kind of voter would Palin appeal to? Who would actually  be moved by this? The kind of voter I was thinking about was the Perot voter, especially the 1996 Perot voter. Very anti-government, very sceptical of Washington. And I think her message would appeal to some of those voters- and some of them live in places like Ohio."

After Mitt Romney's loss in 2012 there has been substantial analysis of why he lost, and how the next Republican candidate could do better. This has taken the form of two different lines of thought. One, supported by "The Gang Of Eight" and in particular Marco Rubio, sees an appeal to Hispanic voters as providing the winning numbers. Not only for 2016, but far into the future to counter the eventual, as they see it, legalization of the multi-millions of illegals and their children.

The other viewpoint, as presented especially by Sean Trende at Real Clear Politics LINK, is that if the millions of White voters who sat out the McCain and Romney candidacies, can be motivated by a populist, Perot-ite candidate. That, plus the most probable drop off in Black voters after President Obama retires, would be enough to win the key marginal states like Ohio.

Judis, as seen below in this 2008 post convention video, clearly identified the Perot voter as important, and saw Sarah Palin as having a particular appeal to them. 

If Palin is the 2016 GOP standard bearer, and especially if teamed with an Hispanic such as Senator Cruz, or New Mexico Governor Martinez, would have an outstanding chance of strikingly increasing the White and Hispanic support, and could win the White House with the states indicated in the map below. 

The map is from an article on how Palin could replicate William Jennings Bryan's populist campaign, but with the winning edge, as set out at this LINK The post shows that even without Ohio, Palin could win if the House chose the president but of course she would have every chance of winning in Ohio with Perot voters support.

UPDATE;Dramatic 2008 Electoral College Maps Show The "Palin Effect" At Its Most Powerful And Portend For 2016

UPDATE:  Sarah Palin's gave revelations on Greta Van Susteren's program LINK that she was muzzled about then candidate Obama's connections to Ayers/Wright during the 2008 campaign. In the light of those comments I think it fair to amend my original question below "Would McCain/Palin have won without the economic collapse? " Now it should be "absolutely, if the McCain team had allowed Palin the freedom to say what she wanted too and to campaign in Michigan as she requested"


The outstanding election site Electoral-Vote.Com commenced a running commentary and analysis during election year 2008 which is available archived AT THIS LINK. It is instructive, looking ahead to a possible Palin run in 2016 to review the McCain/Palin teams performance. It is impossible to recapture the excitement of a presidential campaign five years later but some of the emotion can be discerned in "The Votemaster's" writing

He is one of the most dispassionate, balanced commentator around, and, although writing from the left I respect his intellectual approach to his subject which is lacking in the usual partisan hyperbole so often found on political blogs.

But even given this generally dispassionate approach the puzzlement, and then fear on the left about Palin and her effect on the seemingly inexorable Obama steamroller up till then, comes through in  my opinion. But that adds to the dry images and figures, and brings the campaign back to life including the frenzied, unprecedented, attacks on Palin and her family by the leftist media.

This first map shows the Electoral College numbers September 5th. and shows the state of the race after the Democratic convention with Obama having received a major "bump"and in a massive lead after his acceptance speech August 28th . Obama was ahead with enough votes to be elected (270 the minimum) based on state by state aggregate polling (the same method that Nate Silver at 538.Com used to such effect.) 


On August 29th, John McCain surprised and amazed the political world by announcing Sarah Palin as his VP running mate
"The Votemasters" comments post the GOP convention reflects the almost universal analysis of Palin's address;
"There is no doubt Palin is an enormous hit with the Republican base. She electrified the crowd, no two ways about it. They just loved her. Any doubts they may have had about her are gone."  

Palin had given her speech and the next polling was to show an amazing turnaround. McCain/Palin gained 43 Electoral College votes and Obama lost 30




Here is the McCain/Palin team at their highest point-Obama having lost 55 Electoral college votes since September 4th whilst McCain/Palin gained 47. There is no doubt the race would have fluctuated up and down till election day, but barring unforeseen circumstances victory was more than possible. With Pennsylvania given to Obama the McCain/Palin team would have been elected 274 to 264 if this map had held in November.



On September 16 the end of the race came effectively. McCain's "Campaign suspension" with no solution to the economic collapse, and his back-down on missing the next debate, finished any hope the GOP had because of Palin's monumental efforts. As the next chart shows, once the aggregate polling had caught up with the time delay, Obama moved in front and stayed there right till election day. 

"Hello Economy, Goodbye Cosmetics on Animals

Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch no longer exist, A.I.G. is being radically restructured, and the Dow dropped 500 points yesterday. Guess what? The economy is back."


Would McCain/Palin have won without the economic collapse? With so much inherited from the Bush administration against them it would have been a mighty challenge. However, with the public unsure about the inexperienced Obama and the conservative base hugely energized by Palin on the ticket, there was a chance of victory as the September 18th map showed.

The GOP Establishment and  Democrat's fearful of a Palin run in 2012 tried to pin the blame for the loss on her. Post election analysis shows LINK that this was clearly not the case, and that Palin, as was obvious, added immeasurably to McCain's recovery and chance of victory. Nothing she could do after the crash could salvage the McCain campaign. For Palin to have brought McCain to a tie in Pennsylvania is a little recognized but phenomenal achievement.

With the same support from the Republican base, and with her being freed from McCain's advisers and their ilk, this 2016 electoral map projection shows LINK she has the chance that was there in 2008 before the crash.

With thanks to The Votemaster for permission to reproduce his maps and comments.
