Levin: “Palin Is Running for President”

2009 July 4
by bc3b

“Palin is running for President. Get used to it,” Mark Levin.

Palin quoted MacArthur stating, “We’re not retreating. We’re advancing in another direction.”

Here’s a tape from Levin’s show outlining why he believes it’s a smart move.

 Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announces in Wasilla that she is ... (Robert DeBerry / AP)

The scourge of the left and RINOs within her own party. Can one petite woman take on both and win?

    With the completion of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline agreement with ExxonMobil, Sarah Palin completed all the items she campaigned on – eliminating taxes, restructuring the “sweetheart” oil royalties agreement, reducing the size of government, giving Alaska’s citizens a greater voice.

    Why not give her had-picked successor a head start on 2010 and begin working to straighten out our nation. Once again, Sarah Palin plays by her own rules.

    She quit because her approval ratings were tanking. So much for “Sarah is a fighter”. I remember Rudy being sued left and right but the ACLU for 8 years. No backing down from him. Sarah was not ready for prime time. Can she come back? There is time but she better start hitting the books because her little cutesy routine isn’t working with the vast majority of voters.

    This is great news for Parnell as he can now run with incumbency. As for Sarah, who the hell can say now if this is good news or bad news.

    If Palin has political ambition, she needs to hit the books and learn about policy. The time of cliches has been long over.

    ‘…isn’t working with the vast majority of voters.’

    You are a certifiable loon on this issue. Palin is the ONLY person on the GOP side that magnetically attracts huge and enthusiastic crowds, and fires up people. Why the hell do you think the Democrat goons have been hysterically attacking her for months? Or why you have, for that matter?

    Look, I have no idea what is going to happen. I’ve flipped back and forth in my opinions since this news broke. She could be done with politics, but the more I think about it, the more I doubt that is the case. But whatever the truth is, your assessment remains a false exercise in character assassination.

    Whatever argument you want to try to advance, why don’t you stick with the facts? Stating that Palin does not appeal to a wide range of conservatives is simply untrue.

    Who appointed you political consultant? You watch 5-6 hours of political beltway opinion shows a day and come here to spew your conventional opinions. It is so tired.

    There is a huge disconnect between what you and the frantic beltway elite crowd says, and the reality on the ground with the public response to Palin.

    That is a fact that you simply cannot reconcile.

    And even assuming that your assessment has some truth to it, perhaps this is precisely what Palin is going to do and why she took this step.

    True. However, the numbers that she fires up are not enough to win a national election. She equally repels a number of people.

    Chekote, you want smooth, polished, and glib beltway speak. You have this theory that Bush failed because he was inarticulate and could not charm the media. You believe it because it is what you hear every day on your television channels.

    It isn’t true. Bush was a poor president and failed because he did not have faith in and execute policy grounded in conservative principles. He was weak. That was his problem. Not his inability to be glib.

    You value what the media values because you are indoctrinated in their point of view. It is why you are so impressed with the marxist.

    Palin is rougher and cruder in her articultion than the beltway elites, but she has a very special ability to communicate and connect with large numbers of regular Americans. That cannot be taught or learned or polished–it simply is.

    And in that regard she has much in common with many successful presidents in America’s past. This nation has never been a nation of the elites, like the European nations. It is a rougher, cruder, louder country, with a great big heart, compassion, honesty, and enthusiasm for life. And this is what Palin reflects. And like many previous American politicians, she succeeds by tapping into this basic characteristic of America.

    We’ll see what happens. But I believe you are fundamentally misguided in your beliefs on this issue. I believe you fundamentally misunderstand the American people and who they are, just like the rest of the elites in the country, be they Democrat or Repupblican.

    Chek,

    You are totally missing it. You keep coming back to policy being so damn important. Its bumpkis. If policy was so damn important to a vote decision then O would not be in the WH right now. He has not had in his entire career any basis for policy decisions, what little he did have he stole. ‘Hope and Change’ is not a policy decision but that is what we have in the WH right now. As Levin says — ‘its a monumental screw up!’

    What has been the determining factor in at least the last 4 election cycles is ‘star power’. Yeah that MJ effect. It appears to be the only thing that counts right now. So take the Republican field and do a match up on who can draw a crowd. Palin wins hands down. Not just a little but a 4x margin.

    She also does something else — she decisively carries the female voter – 1. Will be even more decisive in ’12. When women are seeing their families destroyed because of Obama driven decisions it will be a no brainer.

    Check the policy issue at the door. Thats for beltway types who don’t have the guts to get their hands dirty running for office. What matters right now, this point and time is who can fill seats.

    Palin is the only person in the Republican party that can do that.

    Good point PG. I would take it one step farther. Who in the GOP has competence? Romney?

    Romney has presided over Mass tax increases.
    Romney has presided over the introduction of the Mass healthcare experiment and people 4:1 are saying it is worse than before.

    As governor he maybe experienced but he is not competent.

    I do not necessarily agree with Palin’s strategy, if it was a strategy, but she had three very good reasons for doing what she did.

    >The lawsuits filed against her were an unneeded distraction and expense to the office of the Governor. Alaska will be better served going forward under the new administration.

    >She is now free to pursue her own goals whatever they are. She can give speeches , support party activities, assess her own prospects without spending 80% of her time in Alaska fighting deadend lawsuits.

    >If she wanted out of the public eye for a while for her family’s sake, we should not question it. Those were not our children being attacked by scum like Letterman, and we were not walking in her shoes. I don’t know how she demonstrated the restraint she did with disgusting cracks like DL and Huff Post. Maybe they will continue if she pursues another office, but a respite during her childrens’ formative years makes sense to me. Agewise, she is politically viable for 20 years.

    I agree with PG. No one excites the base like Palin, and she is feared by the dems to the point of crapping their pants.

    Chekote –

    It’s hardly surprising that of 14 prior comments, seven are from you, trashing Sarah Palin (and as usual: very vindictive, and highly repeative with virtually no facts or subatance).

    I am going to make your life easier by giving you this simple check-off form. It will save you the mental anguish and the rest of us seeing you repeat yourself over and over. This should save a lot of wear and tear on all of us. To keep you happy, I’ve included some repetition.

    Please use this in the future.

    I hate Sarah Palin because:

    ___ She’s beautiful

    ___ She didn’t butcher Trig

    ___ She didn’t take Bristol to Planned Parenthood

    ___ She has a record of accomplishment

    ___ She outfoxed the world’s largest corporation

    ___ She’s too beautiful

    ___ She’s pro-life

    ___ My husband thinks she’s hot

    ___ She actually has friends

    ___ She fills arenas and stadiums

    ___ If she becomes President, it will be the longest eight years of my life

    ___ She has star power

    ___ Shs is a true conservative

    ___ She energizes conservatives

    ___ She is the biggest star in the Republican Party

    ___ Her family loves her

    ___ She lives her values

    ___ I am obsessed with her

    ___ I can’t sleep nights thinking about how much I hate her

    ___ She is more woman than I ever dreamed of being

    ___ Are you sure I mentioned that she’s beautiful?

    No one excites the base like Palin.

    The number of people she excites are not enough to win national elections. She also repels a lot of people. Besides, she just quit saying that Alaska would be able to better “progress” without her. Is that going to be a qualification for higher office. “Vote for me. I left so that my state would do better”. Also, where is she going to get more executive/legislative experience?

    I think she left because the Mac campaign was starting to leak out information and her e-mails. The e-mails regarding Todd’s association with the AIP, showed her to be willing to lie or at least bend the truth. Maybe more e-mails were coming which would hurt her. Quitting was her way to stop it. It won’t work. But that’s the only explanation I can see for this erratic move.

    The Palin family personally is about half a million dollars in debt due to fighting the frivilous lawsuits. After she’s through as governor, she can command $50,000 or more per speaking engagement and pay this off within a month or two.

    As Levin states, the people filing the ethics violations (all of which were dismissed) were probably backed by the Democratic Party or some Sorros-based group.

    The State was piling up bills on legal defense faster than she was. So if you stand back and ask yourself — ‘Am I doing the constituents any good by staying and permitting the bills to pile up?’ A rational person would say no. Now cap that with personal attacks on her family and you have all the makings of the decision she made.

    You are an obsession, I cannot sleep

    I will capture you and pin you

    You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
    What do I have to do to make you go away

    I feed you, I drink you by day and by night
    I need you, I need you by sun or candlelight
    I protest, I want to leave
    But there’s no alternative

    Your face appears again, I see the beauty there
    But I see danger, danger beware
    A circumstance in my tortured dreams
    My mind is not what it seems

    You are an obsession, you’re my obsession
    What do I have to do to make you go away

    My fantasy has turned to madness
    All my goodness has turned to badness
    My need to destroy you has consumed my soul
    My life is trembling, I have no control

    I will hate you, yes I will hate you
    I will find a way and I will hurt you
    Like a butterfly, a wild butterfly
    I will capture you and pin you

    It will be interesting to see how much SarahPAC took in during the first half of 2009. Considering the timing, this may have affected her decision.

    My guess is that this may have been in the works since she bagged ExxonMobil. Her statement to Blitzer, Meg Stapleton (Palin’s right arm moving from her state position to SarahPAC), the Farewell Tour to the National Guard troops, who she has always been close to) in Kosovo.

    I don’t have time to read all the comments here, so may add a redundant one.

    Whoever Sarah was when she ran with McCain, if she runs on her own she will be a “different Sarah.”

    No longer will she have the chains of being “second fiddle” around her, jerking on them if she falls away from the script. She will be herself, but one that is now savvy of the wolves out there called the MSM. She will have the Charlie Gibbs, Letterman, Couric experiences behind, but still able to coach her on the pit falls that come with being “interviewed” or related to by these leftist news people and entertainers.

    Palin will be more “polished” on international matters, will have the time to groom answers that attend the country more than just Alaskans. She will be bound by the people’s values and her own, and this will come across crystal clear at rallies across the country.

    ….if she chooses to run, which I think is highly likely!

    I think Palin started looking at the 2010 primaries (in the Lower 48), wants to play a major role and felt her hands were tied as governor. This gives her the opportunity to play a key role and gage whether or not a 2012 rum makes sense. Rather than being a sitting duck for her enemies, she becomes a moving target. It provides an opportunity to fight back more easily.

    While the attacks on Palin and her family took their toll, it was obvious last fall that she enjoys being on the campaign trail and really connects with the people.

    “Sarah’s a quitter” is the new meme from the Democrats and RINO crowd. I have one question for you guys: Have you ever quit a job, even if you were performing that job fairly well? Have you ever quit a job without having another job lined up? Did you consider yourself a quitter?

    Nobody but Sarah knows why she did what she did. Personally, I think she felt the AK Gov. job was an albatross around her neck. She decided to move on. In the short run, this will hurt her, as the Democrats and their useful idiots in the RINO sector will continue to bash her with the same cliche’d talking points and platitudinous drivel (Yes, that was a subtle dig at Krauthammer) they have been using all along.

    In the long run, Sarah’s decision to move on opens many doors for her. I fully expect her standing with Conservatives to continue to excel, and Conservatives are the only people she needs at the moment. NOTE: I am not saying she can win the presidency with only Conservative voters. What I am saying is, at this point, her association with Conservatives will carry her for the next 3 years, and will propel her through Republican primaries.

    We’ll see how she does in 2010. My guess is there will be many Republican candidates begging for her support. She is going to make a lot for friends in the GOP during the next few years, and if she plays her cards right, she should be able to cash in the markers.

    I will contribute to her PAC as soon as we are back home! She HAS out-manuevered her enemies, IMHO.

    her choices:
    (a) remain a prisoner in Alaska, having every success ignored, and every statement & action criticized
    (b) take her success on the road and free herself from the endless train of frivolous lawsuits and media hit-pieces!

    she chose (b) and is now going to be a thorn in the Left’s BUTT!

    Go Sarah…my contribution will hit your PAC in 2 days!

    Palin’s 4th of july message from her facebook account…

    http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=99477538434

    “The response in the main stream media has been most predictable, ironic, and as always, detached from the lives of ordinary Americans who are sick of the “politics of personal destruction”. How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country. And though it’s honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make. But every American understands what it takes to make a decision because it’s right for all, including your family.

    I shared with you yesterday my heartfelt and candid reasons for this change; I’ve never thought I needed a title before one’s name to forge progress in America. I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint. I hope you will join me. Now is the time to rebuild and help our nation achieve greatness!

    Palin’s press release on her resignation as Governor…

    http://www.gov.state.ak.us/exec-column.php

    “But I have given my reasons… no more “politics as usual” and I am taking my fight for what’s right – for Alaska – in a new direction.”

    “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

    “I do not want to disappoint anyone with my decision; all I can ask is that you trust me with this decision – but it’s no more “politics as usual”. ”

    Nowhere does she say she is ‘quitting’. On the contrary, she makes it clear that she will remain active in politics, on a national level, for the benefit of both Alaska and the nation.
