Sarah on Rush!

For those that haven't seen it yet, Gov. Palin gave a great interview today on the Rush Limbaugh Program. She was in rare form, looks like SarahCuda is back and better than ever.

Thanks for posting that. Great interview!

I already apologized to John on the other post. If John and Sarah prevail the two most important words of this campaign may have been uttered by Sarah: "Ditto's, Rush." The media is always talking about code words. For Republicans and conservatives these words are a call to arms from one of their own.Our side will not be defeated for lack of trying.

Wow..Sarah did great in that interview..I am extremely impressed with how articulate she was there and completely on the fly. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about her experience and readiness to be VP and I think in the beginning, she showed some serious flaws. But after beeing in the national spotlight for a few months she has astounded me with how quickly she has adapted...

The task at hand was a daunting one. Not only was she expected to play with the 'big boys' who had been on the national scene much longer than her but she also had to study and learn all of McCain's positions..no easy feat. I think she has proven herself to be a great camaigner and increasingly more adept and competent on the issues. I have total faith in her that she would be ready to lead on inauguration day, thanks in part to her growth on the national scene.

Do you know why Rush is so good? Unlike Hewitt and Hannity who take a more rational and clinical approach to discussing conservative values and issues when interviewing Sarah, Rush just goes right for the jugular in his gushing adult admiration for Sarah's talents and her courageous efforts in advancing Reagan conservatism, but at the same time presenting the passion of the conservative cause so she will never mistake where he and the people of America are coming from. Rush just gets it. He got Sarah to admit to the the ties Obama has with ACORN and that Obama has a responsiblity to 'rein them in' to preserve the integrity of a democratic Presidential vote and for the good of America. This was the best 10 minute interview that I have ever heard or seen. I think Sarah had Rush at "Dittos from Scranton" and Sarah in turn fed off the energy that Rush exuded over the phone. Beldar in his blog (hughhewitt.com) commented that he had never witnessed at a Republican rally (in Scranton) such 'contagious joy' that Sarah spreads, the relish for campaigning that she exhibits and that she is having 'a grand old time'. Two superstars finally get to connect. Who knows: this may be the turning point of the campaign.

Sarah was SO poised and on-point today in the interview with Rush.
As you noted, Stephen, Gov. Palin has proven her abilities as a "quick study;" she's Studied the material and learned how to come to interviews prepared with HER agenda, to steer the interview into the areas SHE knows need review. I am VERY impressed, and thankful to Senator McCain for having faith in Gov. Palin.

Now, go win one for the VPer, McCain----and for all the hard-working Americans who need you! WIN this debate on Wednesday night!

multipath said...

As I said earlier Sarah should be a regular on Rush's show everyday or so at 10:30. She sure got me enthused and I bet the audience would almost double overnight. What an inspirational speaker. If the RNC has $100M + they could afford to have a daily 1/2 hour TV special led by Sarah. Well maybe not that often but we need something done fast.

momprayn said...

Palin/Rush for '12 ?!!!!

Jan said...

Wow, she just keeps getting better. That was great.

Dean said...

I was so suprised today when I heard Sarah would be on Rush. I agree with Techno that the Ditto's really made her one of the family in the Rush Community.

I thought Sarah did great on getting across the important issues.

The tax issue is huge and both McCain and Palin have to work this very hard. There are many people out there just waiting to get a check from Obama's redistribution of wealth.
These people have to be informed that this plan will cost jobs and opportunities. Redistribution of wealth is only a selfish and short sighted view.

I believe Sarah needs to come on Rush's show a couple of times per week between now and Nov 4th. This is an excellent way to clear up incorrect information and let people get to know Sarah who can't attend rallies. Hope they take this advice.

Go Palin!

Erin said...

UGH! I was at home today for a short break, and I thought about flipping on Rush and didn't! I've been GLUED to the progam the past few weeks, and I dropped the ball.

It sounds like a great interview though. She's just fantastic, with or without the dead weight on the top of the ticket.

If Obama wins this, I want a bumper sticker that says, "Don't blame me; I voted for Palin."

Matthew said...

momprayn … no. Let's stick with Palin-Jindal 2012 & let Rush do his thing.

I thought this was a good interview, and I hope that we can get this thing turned around in time for the election.

Rush said that the New York Times, of all papers, reported that Sarah is the most forceful and dynamic speaker of all four candidates on the presidential circuit.

It's too bad that the Convention was so late in the summer and that Sarah didn't have a few months to work the campaign.

Many of you may already know this, but you can watch every one of Sarah (& John)'s rallies live online. Just check out http://cnn.com/live for an ongoing schedule of live events. (I hate to plug CNN, but at least they do this.) I wish more Americans knew about this and would watch Sarah in action!

robin in alabama said...

She is doing a great job and because of her I have come to realize this election is not McCain vs. Obama. It has come down to my way of thinking, living, believing vs. theirs. I have come to understand it is not only McCain Palin that is fighting Obama it needs to be me. I need to stand up and declare what I desire for my nation, state, city, home, and my life. It is up to me not to give up but to fight so I am going to pronounce my support for McCain tonight after the debate. No matter how the debate goes. He has my support. I will be sending every TV local and national networks my voice. I will take a stand today.
If you would like to join me I will have email address and web site information that you can use. @ http://prayingforsarah.blogspot.com/
Let them know how we will vote and Don’t let them tell us how to vote.

"Apparently some people think that they can have it both ways: a big government that acts as the mayor player in all aspects of society: business, education, science, technology, medicine and the benefits that come from a capitalistic society where government plays a minor (supervisory) role: excellence, growth, rewards for those individuals who work hard, innovation and hope for a better future for the next generation (which is what I think is at the core of EU's and Canada low birth rates). Unless they've found some kind of Philosopher's stone, every single country that has tried some form of socialism, and the US under Jimmy Carter is no exception to the rule, has suffered from the same devastating effects. Are Americans really willing to give up their exceptionalism?"

Everyone here should read Richard Cohen's column "A few debate questions" (Tues. Oct. 14) in the Washington Post.

Cohen took some shots at both candidates. He had a great idea for a question to both McCain and Obama that might indicate exactly how well they really understand the economy and the mortgage mess.

Cohen was very forceful about the questions that Bob Schieffer should ask Obama per the Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, and Louis Farrahkan. Also good was Cohen's suggestion that Obama be asked exactly how he thought he could solve the incredible mess the next president is going to inherit.

Likewise, Cohen suggested asking McCain about his friendship with convicted felon Gordon Liddy, the lessons of Iraq, and McCain's age.

Of interest to those here, Cohen suggested a few questions that McCain be asked about his choice of Gov. Palin and how it relates to the election.

Check it out.

Ted said...

If McCain doesn't make it in '08, I say Palin/Joe the Plumber '12!

Mountain Mama said...

Good afternoon, bloggers!
I thought Cohen's questions for Obama and McCain were terrific, and wrote Cohen so. However, I mentioned also that he missed a few key questions for Obama:

1. Why hasn't OBAMA revealed HIS medical history? He's shared only a one-page, non-specific letter from one physician, which amounts to a joke! Is Obama hiding health issues that stem from his smoking or drug use? At least McCain allowed reporter-doctors to examine EVERYTHING in his medical records: and this problem was detailed NOT by a conservative media outlet, but last week by CNN!

2. Yes, it's disgusting that Obama befriends the terrorist Ayers duo (Michelle is Bern's friend). But what's also upsetting is that both agree that school should teach radical socialism and methods to subvert this capitalistic democracy (instead of, you know, like, um, MATERIAL! Reading, arithmetic, science, etc.!).

We'll learn tonight, by what questions he poses, if Schieffer is in the tank for Obama, as the other liberal reporters have absolutely demonstrated. The only truly-fair interviewer so far has been PASTOR Rick Warren, who asked them identical questions, and disallowed one candidate's ability to hear the other's answers.

The other two debates were draws. The press called Obambi as the winner both times because they figure----get this!----McCain has more experience, and thus deserves a slight handicap.

It would help if McCain wins tonight's debate, but it's still not required for him to win the election, so long as there's another draw. What IS necessary is for McCain to keep showing he does NOT have a "trigger temper," that he can look at Obama (as McCain DID DO in the second debate), and he has a MUCH better economic plan-----which, btw, even the liberal economists are saying of late, adding that they are surprised to admit it!

Pray. God is in control. McCain must show at least that he's persuasive, which is REQUIRED for presidents, so they can urge citizens of this country, and leaders of other countries, to adopt his views or programs he's proposing.

Lord of the Universe, help BOTH candidates truly reveal their real viewpoints, abilities, and personalities tonight, so that Americans can make truly informed decisions about which candidate to support. AMEN

Tbone said...

Hi there. I am a new Sarah Palin fan. She did a great job on her interview with Rush. Sarah is by far the most impressive of all the candidates. Do you see Sarah running for President in 2012 if McCain does not win in 2008? I feel that Sarah is building up a big following already.

momprayn said...

Tbone - Run in '12??? -----YOUBETCHA!!!!!!!!! Yes, we started thinking about that quite awhile ago! ha! Welcome!!! God will bless you!!!
Ted - Yeah, Joe the Plumber would be great OR that guy who stood up at that Wis. rally that said how "really mad" he was!!!! He was interviewed yesterday on Fox - asked him if he had any political aspirations now (many were urging him to).
Heard some encouraging news from a man called in to Rush about 50 min. into the program's first hour. From Mich. I think (some Dem. state) - says the apathy is horrible around there and some are just going to vote for McCain as a vote against the Media!!!! They are sick & tired of them & now proclaiming Obama's win. Don't know how many more will do that, but that's more for McCain - even though not the right reason exactly but hey, I'll take 'em. Also hopefully, there will be less voter fraud (votes for Obama) since that's "hot news" now.
Robin in Alabama -- that was great....your website is wonderful - didn't know it existed. We are on the same page! Go Sarah! Go God! Amen.

Just heard a supposed scholar named Heather MacDonald on Laura Ingraham's show make the most outageous comment that I have heard this election season and may be the most outrageous catty comment that I have ever heard. Heather remarked that because McCain was an idiot to pick Sarah based on identity politics and that Sarah is common or average,and not worthy or qualified to become VP because of her speech patterns, her claim to understand what ordinary people are going through, her lack of IQ that 'the conservatives deserve to lose this election' and that conservatives will survive an Obama presidency and will rebound. Heather also made me want to puke when she said that Obama has the IQ to think things through and do what is best for the nation. Folks, I hate to harp on Nazism and Adolf Hitler, but Hitler was elected to office by millions of supporters (but he eventually was appointed Chacellor when the Weimar regime failed)who thought Germany needed a change of direction and if the voters don't like him in the future we can always replace him in the next election. Heather, it's people like you that make residents in mental institutions look like geniuses. To concede a radical Marxist like Obama the Presidency because you think Palin is second-rate and not a true representative of what you think an ideal conservative should look like is the most ridiculous argument that I have ever heard. Heather, you're the worst kind of elitist-one without a conscience and moral compass who is willing to foist upon the good people of America the most evil, vile and repugnant regime that would make thuggery and Al Capone and Ayers and Marx proud.

Rush mentioned on his show today a couple of interesting things, Sarah's visit to a Walmart, which was awesome and also a report from NBC news from last night. I about fell off my chair when I saw that NBC actually did a positive story on the Governor. It was about her connection with special needs children and their families. You can see it on NBC news site. No matter what happens Sarah Palin is going to be a national spokesperson and a national star standing up for special needs populations. She's awesome.

indigogarden said...

Is there a way to hear the Palin/Rush interview online? I admit that I'm not a huge Rush fan, but I'd like to hear Palin speak.

Night Owl said...

I was so disappointed to hear Heather MacDonald say such things about Sarah, as I have enjoyed many things she has written in the past.

How about Palin/Ingraham 2012?? ;)

Let's all pray for John McCain, he needs a GREAT performance tonight.

momprayn said...

indigogarden --- you can hear it at Rush's website: rushlimbaugh.com.

Rose said...

Sarah should keep going for several more times to Rush Limbaugh radio show until the election -- because Rush has 14.5 million listeners and that would be a 'free' campaign for McCain.

PRAY McCain wins this final debate and WIN the election... we need Divine Intervention to fight the mainstream media orchestrated plot...

There's an interesting write-up on "Can McCain win without Limbaugh?" and Rush Limbaugh to Obama: 'You are no Jesus Christ'
