ABOUT MY LAST EDITORIAL:
“They Are The Problem – Not The Solution” (May 26, 2011).
By painting all of those people within the list of America’s Enemies with the same brush in my last editorial, amongst the worlds of academia, politics and journalism, I later realized that many within those professions did not deserve my vitriol. BUT THE VAST MAJORITY DID.
There are indeed GREAT teachers, some very good politicians and bureaucrats, and a smattering of reliable journalists, mostly on the RIGHT. But, as true as this is, it is equally true and unfortunate that these good people are in the minority. And that’s a problem that cannot be separated from the whole.
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE NAME AND FACE RECOGNITION:
Tim Pawlenty is stating that he does not yet have the name and face recognition to move his numbers up amongst the other better-known Republican Candidates.
One of the visitors to Galganov.com wrote me, saying that because of the lack of fairness within the mainstream media, candidates like Pawlenty will never get the kind of coverage that propelled Obama to political stardom.
AND HE’S RIGHT.
Anyone who is not on the LEFT or Center-LEFT cannot depend on the mainstream media for any kind of positive recognition or publicity.
Not anyone but ONE that is.
WHO IS SARAH PALIN?
If you have to ask, you’ve been comatose for the last 3 years.
I have written from the very beginning about my respect and confidence in Sarah Palin, and why I believe she SHOULD be the candidate to run against Obama in 2012.
The “EXPERTS” say that she is TOO polarizing. She’s TOO unelectable. That she carries TOO much baggage. And that she will NEVER be able to attract the Center and Independents.
These are the same “EXPERTS” who thought that John McCain would be a great candidate against Obama.
HOW TOUGH IS PALIN?
1 – The media has done whatever is legally possible to dredge-up every scintilla of personal dirt on Palin that they could find – THEY CAME UP EMPTY.
2 – The Media tried to find, and even create political scandals associated with Palin – NO SCANDALS FOUND.
3 – The Media relentlessly attacked her family and family life – WITHOUT SUCCESS.
4 – Hollywood and Television have gone as far over the top as they possibly could to demean and belittle Palin without shredding what little credibility the entertainment industry still has – TO NO AVAIL.
5 – Establishment Republicans (RINOS) have taken plenty of cowardly pot shots at her, mostly from the shadows, and usually couched in innuendo from the likes of INSIDERS like Karl Rove – HURTING ONLY THEMSELVES.
But . . . After attacking Sarah Palin on just about every front imaginable, not only has she not backed-off, she’s shown TRUE GRIT, and went even more so on the attack, becoming even that much more recognizable and popular.
When I read, see, and hear Democrats saying HOW MUCH they’d love Palin to be the candidate to run against Obama, what I’m really hearing is – ANYONE BUT Palin.
The LAST candidate the Democrats really want to run against is someone who will go right after Obama’s dreadful fiscal, social, and international record.
SOMEONE WHO WILL GET INTO OBAMA’S FACE LIKE NO ONE ELSE COULD OR WOULD.
They would much rather run against another McCain-type who believes in trying to please everyone, while offending no one. And finding no ass he’s not prepared to kiss, unless it belongs to a true Conservative Republican.
But, Sarah Palin isn’t McCain . . . And she will not try to suck-up to Obama’s base or to anyone else, AND SHE WILL TELL IT LIKE IT IS, which is what I believe the majority of the people are prepared to hear.
I hear many Pundits, including Conservatives who say that she hasn’t yet established a ground game. That she doesn’t have any real committees setup. Especially district Committees and fund-raising Committees.
WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN SMOKING?
1 – No one in the USA with the exception of this one-term President has as much face recognition than does Sarah Palin. So, what will an advertising and marketing committee achieve for her?
2 – Sarah Palin’s ground game includes MILLIONS of TEA PARTIERS who don’t have to be organized into committees to take Palin’s message to the streets, the phones, and to the homes of the American people.
SHE HAS AN ALL-VOLUNTEER ARMY.
3 – Sarah Palin doesn’t need a fundraising committee, since the money will be raised by the MILLIONS of Tea Partiers, most of whom will write the checks themselves, as they raise HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in nickels and dimes from others who will do whatever it takes to fill Palin’s war chest.
And if a war chest is what is needed to get your message across, the media that hates her the most, will also give her the most exposure, ONLY because they won’t be able to help themselves.
What the political INSIDERS can’t imagine for the life of themselves is that Sarah Palin is a phenomenon. She’s nothing at all like them. She doesn’t need to play by their rules. And MOST important of all . . . She doesn’t need them.
Sarah Palin is a FORCE of NATURE who the people believe-in, can relate to, and will trust with their country.
If you hear what the mainstream media is saying, and what the Republican INSIDERS are saying, you’d figure that she doesn’t have a shot in hell. But, don’t listen to them. Listen to the people . . . the REAL people who are sick and tired with the political status quo and the INSIDERS.
LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO WANT REAL CHANGE. Not that phony crap Obama and the LEFT foisted upon a doting and sleepwalking population.
PEOPLE WANT JOBS – JOBS – JOBS:
1 – Less government.
2 – Less spending.
3 – Lower taxes.
4 – Less regulation.
5 – More energy independence.
6 – Private but affordable and accessible healthcare.
7 – Support for America’s REAL allies.
8 – And a return to American EXCEPTIONALISM.
That is who and what Sarah Palin is all about.
Who else on the Republican side can deliver all of this? Who else on the Republican side would the people really trust to deliver any of this?
And does anyone reading this really believe that the Center and the Independents want anything less for themselves, their families, and their country? I DON’T THINK SO.
If Palin throws her hat into the ring, as I suspect she will, LOOK OUT, because she will ask for no quarter and take no prisoners.
Hers will be a campaign like none other:
OF THE PEOPLE – BY THE PEOPLE – FOR THE PEOPLE.
IT’S TIME FOR SARAH.
