Sarah "Knocks 'em Dead" at RGA Conference

I'm actually having a twinge on nostalgia right now. Back in the early days, we used to LIVE for Governors conferences, because we knew that they were the primary times that Sarah would be in the Lower 48 and talking to the national media. Now, she's returning to this year's Republican Governors Association Conference as the star of the show! What a difference a year makes. I think Sarah is doing a fine job establishing herself as political force in her own right, and I might even be prouder of her now than I was during the VP run. Texas Gov. Rick Perry introduced Sarah today, and he told her to "knock 'em dead"...I think that's exactly what she's been doing lately, and I'm more excited for her future than I've ever been. That's not how I expected to feel less than a month after losing an national election, but I think it's clear that Sarah is back and better than ever. I am really looking forward to moving ahead with a Palin movement that is still VERY much alive.

Also, I will be on CNN today at 2:50 PM Eastern Time for anyone interested in watching.

Hi Adam. You are so right about Sarah. Thanks for the heads up. I will look at CNN to see you. We will continue to support and defend Sarah.

knowitall said...

Amen, Adam

My comments re this were back on the last topic. And yes, Adam, you just sort of reiterated our feelings as well. The more time moves on, we can see that we were right in "predicting" that the VP run was just the "beginning" for Sarah. I was thinking the same,Adam --- she is doing better and getting more coverage than during the campaign. Plus it's good in that some of the Obamaites can and will be more "open" to her since they got their guy in. They can also see now how the MSM were so WRONG about her.

Mark Davis, filling in for Rush today said something interesting about Sarah. Re her going to the Senate (that's what he wants) --- said that he has so much faith in her that he feels as she walks the halls of the Senate, she will do more to change THEM, than they will to change HER.....

alyssa said...

Very true. Sarah continues to amaze me. I can't watch CNN from work. Will there be a video?

Mountain Mama said...

Mark Davis is naive: NO newbie of the Senate gets past the hierarchy in power. Yes, Sarah will be able to obtain more press coverage than your basic new Senator can----but in the actual working of bills through the Senate to passage and enactment, she will be ignored and dissed if she doesn't bow to the old-timers. Sarah is a CEO, and needs to stick with those type of jobs----you know, such as PRESIDENT!
(smile)
Let's see her write some books and move that oil pipeline FAR up the schedule of priorities, and then people in the Lower 48 will keep noticing her PLENTY.

Tbone said...

Hi Mountain mama: I agree with all your points. Sarah needs to remain Governor. Sarah is more of a leader. Sarah can vesre herself on international affairs while Governor. This country has more of a history of electing Governors as President.

Ivars Fabriciuss said...

Sarah and her family has a great role in the future of this planet.

Tbone said...

Hi Mountain mama: I agree with you on everyone of your points on Sarah remaining Governor.

knowitall said...

mountain mama,
the dems are more likely than not going to block Alaskan drilling. Sarah is perfectly placed to throw it back at them.
you are 100% correct in saying that she would be in the back bench in the senate. The dems would be perfectly placed to block her very move.
I think her points about the party keeping a positive attitude are excellent. If she is in the senate she can be blamed for a good share of the failure. By staying in Alaska, she can contiue to put her smiling face on optimistic actions.

The mention of Camille Paglia in the other thread understated Paglia's brilliance. Oh for more honorable opponents such as Camille! Everyone who supports Governor Palin absolutley must read Paglia's last three essays on salon.com. Camille is so open-mindedly honest (and accurate) that it makes me realize that perhaps I should be more open-minded about President-elect Obama, who is about become my president. And when I do so, I realize that many of Obama's strengths are the same as Palin's - an ability to inspire principal among them.

Hey guys - You can watch the Larry King interview in full here:

Runs 20 minutes. Larry is not my cup o' tea, but our Woman of Substance shine bright!

Tbone said...

I was just watching CNN and Adam was on. He did a good job defending Sarah. I was wondering why does everyone portray Sarah as just a social conservative? Sarah is more than that. If she is going to be President she can't just get pegged as a social conservative. Sarah has a record as Governor.

loki said...

sorry if this has been asked before but....

In 2012, will there be the same excitement for The One? Will people vote for him because of the historical significance?

Kristofer D. Lorelli said...

loki,

Great question. One thing is for sure, Barry will have the $ and the volunteer lists still working in his favor.

As I said in another thread, what you saw today was a LEADER. There are no leaders to be found in the Senate (in the case of Harry Reid, it begins with L and ends with R but LEADER is not the word).

This is why Senators are rarely ever Presidents, and it's EXTREMELY rare that a Senator goes right to the Presidency--and we KNOW what happened to the one that did, unfortunately.

"In 2012, will there be the same excitement for The One? Will people vote for him because of the historical significance?"

Oh, I'm already predicting 1994 for 2010. Reid, Schumer, and Dodd (who is surprisingly losing favorability even up in hard-liberal CT) are all up for re-election, so is one of my Doofus Twins, Patty bin Murray (who earned her name because she thinks Osama bin Laden does such a great job caring for his people, and we should follow his example), and as long we're running more the Reagan emulators and not the Dole/McCain types, we're good to go. And yes, the novelty will be long worn off, in fact it's even begun already in some circles.

Now the key is not to just assume this is going to happen. Three years ago, we did, and we effectively end up with an anti-conservative media picking our candidates for it. But hard work (today was a good step, electing Michael Steele as RNC chair will be another) will DEFINITELY pay off. Go back and check the history, every time the GOP's laid down and been content or reserved, they always wear an @$$-whuppin; every time they roll up the sleeves and get to work, they're the ones BRINGIN the @$$-whuppin. Funny how that works eh?

As long as there's a good plan of attack (as there was with Reagan after 76) and we keep an eye on Barry, there's NO reason whatsoever to think that "The One" is unbeatable, cause a juggernaut this isn't exactly shaping up to be.

there won't be deceiving anyone this time though.. everything this administration does will be clear for everyone to see.

Kristofer D. Lorelli said...

Scott,

I hope so, but I have little faith in the media at the moment. Obama is already making plan to restrict the rights of gun owners, flip-flop on drilling, pass the fairness doc., and he is hiring the most partisan staff......but the media continues to look away.

i just saw a report issued on the future of America's defense from the Center for Defense Information. Naturally, i looked up who these people are. It includes the Late Paul Newman and the head of ben and jerry's ice cream.

where's the aleve???

momprayn said...

knowitall - I think it's in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom --- that's where mine was........

Publius said...

I think I felt a thrill go up my leg

lol

j/k

I buy great big bottles of cheap generic Naproxin Sodium (Aleve) at Costco :-))

Knowitall, was it you who said something about the GOP chair in your area making a positive statement about Sarah? (I was looking for the comment, but can't find it)

knowitall said...

trueredhead,
Yes, that was a day or two ago.

I ran into the Yakima County GOP chair (his term recently expired). He said that he is introducing a resolution with the Yakima County GOP. It is rather neutral but it encourages Sarah to stay in the running for 2012 and not withdraw completely to Alaska.
He hopes to pass that on to the state level.
It is not an endorsement, as I understand it. The idea is to show her some encouragement after the recent election of President elect Obama.
I thought it was a simple idea that other states could follow.

Do you think, with all the confusion going on, that we could convince Canada to trade Massachusetts for British Columbia?
'hope that the flooding is not too bad in your area.

Christine L said...

Sarah needs to stay a Governor. Governor's in most cases become President's. She is also a leader and it doesn't sound like she is one who wants to hold back on opinions and leadership abilities or take a back seat. She is a natural and I pray that she is around in 4 years, a little older, smarter, wiser to help lead the Republicans to victory. Senators don't usually become presidents, this year was a fluke. I hope the conservative movement can get their act together and make a strong comeback in two years with Palin, Jindal and Newt leading the way.

Knowitall,
You don't want British Columbia. You'll be stuck with Vancouver and a whole new breed of liberal wingnuts.
It's Alberta that you want. Good, honest, conservative, regular folks. And lots of good oil, too.

I know this hasn't made the MSM, but it seems overwhelming now that Barry Obama will NOT ever become POTUS. There is NO way around the Constitutional prohibition pertaining to his not being a natural born citizen of the USA, without a Hawaii birth certificate (as opposed to the Certificate of Live Birth which does not suffice).

I expect that as of December 1, 2008, this news will be on all the media 24/7, which is when Supreme Court Justice Souter has required Team Obama to respond to Plaintiff Berg's request for Certiorari before the US Supreme Court.

From that day forward, EVERYTHING WILL BE DIFFERENT -- as the case, as of then, is not merely between Berg and Obama, but THE SUPREME COURT VS. OBAMA! Stay tuned for Dec 1, 2008!

This is perhaps the single greatest constitutional issue ever to face this nation. I've walked around and around this, and I don't see any way out for Obama. He will NOT EVER be POTUS. There is a considerable possibility that Obama electors in the electoral college, voting in mid-December, will be disqualified, rendering McCain as President (having the most remaining electors voting for him, with Biden -- since he is voted on separately -- as VP. It seems there could very well be a McCain/Biden Administration.

If I'm wrong on any of this, have at it. I don't see where I am wrong!

So, bottom line, I wouldn't worry about The One being around in 2012 to detract from or compete with Palin!
