Sarah Palin: Great Wisconsin Event (And Setting the Record Straight, Again)

Via Facebook

Great event last night in Wisconsin! It was an honor to meet great Americans who are working so hard to remind us of life's sanctity and value. I commend this fine state for its efforts to make our nation a more welcoming place for all children.

Let me set the record straight on the media's follow-up reports of the great event: Despite what CNN reported, decisions about not allowing cameras at the event were the prerogative of the sponsors of the event, and I, of course, respected their decision.

I am about to set out on my book tour, where media will no doubt join us at many spots. In the meantime, I ask our friends in the media once again: please quit making things up.

- Sarah Palin

Media Roundup on Governor Palin's Wisconsin Speech

K. Carpenter over at Conservatives4Palin, attended the event and writes an insider’s report. It's a great report.

Governor Palin left us with these words: "Don’t ever let anyone tell you to sit down and shut up!”

Not to worry Governor, I am not the sit down and shut up kind of person.

Great news to all of you Sarah Palin fans out there... the governor is rested, looks great, fired up and ready to rock. Her book tour is going to be a lot of fun. I cannot wait to see her again at a book signing.

Uffda, a C4P regular, also attended the event and writes her account here.
The first thing she did was ask if there were any soldiers or veterans in the audience and asked us to give them a round of applause. My dad is a vet. Then she asked them to stand while we observed a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting at Fort Hood. She said she'd be prayin' during that silence. Two of the soldiers killed were from Wisconsin.

After that she started off like she always does, making connections to Alaska. First up, her grandmother was born in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Secondly, she gave a shout out to Greta van Susteren. She said she's never been around Greta where she hasn't heard her singing Wisconsin's praises. Greta, of course, is from Appleton, Wisconsin.

From AP
Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told about 5,000 supporters in Wisconsin to continue to press lawmakers on abortion issues.

Wisconsin Right to Life officials say Palin's low-profile stop in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis on Friday night was more than a year in the making.

Palin told the crowd they "went rogue" -- a reference to her upcoming memoirs -- with their support of the cause.

She didn't mention President Barack Obama by name in her 25-minute speech, but briefly touched on health care reform legislation and pressed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to make sure all voices were heard on the issue.
From the Milwaukee Journal
The speech marked Palin's re-emergence on the national scene. The event was emceed by WTMJ-AM radio personality Charlie Sykes. The Journal Sentinel purchased a ticket to cover Palin's speech.

Security was tight at the Wisconsin Exposition Center. Spectators were told beforehand that prohibited items included cell phones, recording devices, video and still cameras, as well as strollers and car seats. A line stretched across the length of the facility and out to a parking lot as spectators waited patiently to pass through security.

Once they got inside, spectators didn't have to wait long for what they came for - Palin's speech. The address began with Palin asking for a moment of silence to remember those killed in Thursday's shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas.

It's hard to believe, but Palin is still something of a national newcomer, only a few years removed from her stunning rise from relative obscurity in Alaska to the Republican Party's 2008 vice presidential nomination.

From Time
Highlights of Palin's Friday Night Remarks

- She is still starting her speeches with a slew of local references (especially about sports), just as she did during the campaign.

- She talked about both the birth of her son with Down Syndrome and her teenage daughter's unplanned pregnancy as life-changing events that moved her away from "the edge" into "walking the walk."

- She still likes Fox's Greta Van Susteren and Laura Ingraham more than the New York Times.

- She is trying to build a core of backers (and book buyers...) called "Sarah's Rogues."

- She's still using tough language about the opposition; she said all people who support keeping partial-birth abortion legal are either "cold-hearted extremists" or "cowards."

- She will rely more on historical references than she did during the campaign (mentioning Friday by name several early feminist leaders, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and Pope John Paul 2).

- She will mock President Obama, focusing on his promise of hope and change.
Jonathan Martin at Politico
The line to get into the venue here stretched over a half-mile outside the building and a local conservative talk radio station even marked the event by printing t-shirts that welcomed her to the city, noted the date of her appearance and deemed her: “America’s Conservative Conscience.” The anti-abortion group that hosted the event sought to raise money by including pledge cards on every chair that included an offer to become part of “Sarah’s Rouges” by giving $1,000 to the group in exchange for an autographed copy of her forthcoming memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.
Obviously Martin finds a way to criticize the Governor, what else do we expect from him?

Sarah Palin: Speaker Pelosi: Your Blue Dogs are Howling

Like many Americans, I’m very concerned about the efforts underway to rush through the 2,000 page Pelosi health care bill this weekend. Why the rush? That’s a lot of pages to read. Why not give everyone the chance to read it and debate it?

How much will this bill cost us? It’s unclear because the figures coming out of Washington keep changing – and always in the direction of costing more, not less. The latest numbers show it will cost more than a trillion dollars over the decade, but when has a government program ever come in on or under budget?

How will we pay for it? Taxes, of course – and not just on the “rich” (you know, the people who spur the economy by buying goods and running companies that employ people), but also on just about everyone, especially small businesses – the job creating engine of our economy. One of the points of health care reform was to help small businesses with the cost, but this bill hurts them – and right at a time when so many Americans are out of work and need the jobs that small businesses produce.

What’s in this bill? The “death panel” provision is in it. Medicare cuts are in it. Coverage of illegal immigrants is in it. And federal funding for abortion is in it. I
commend the many Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats who are taking a principled
stance to fight this.

I had a message for Speaker Pelosi in a speech I gave last night for the Wisconsin Right to Life – “please, please don’t break the ‘transparency promise’ by prohibiting at least a vote of your colleagues on funding abortion-on-demand.”

Speaker Pelosi has already broken many promises thus far in this “reform” exercise. She promised that this would be a bi-partisan effort, but the bill she’s pushing isn’t bi-partisan. She promised that the final version of the bill would be posted online 72 hours before it comes to a vote so that the American people could clearly see what’s in it and how we will pay for it. But she broke that promise too when she decided to rush the bill to a vote this weekend.

The speaker must be held accountable for her broken promises. Now is the time for Americans who believe in the free market and who believe that we need policies that promote job growth instead of job loss to say once and for all, “Enough!” Stand up and make your voices heard before it’s too late. Call and email your representatives and tell them to vote “no” on Pelosi’s train wreck of a health care bill, or else we will vote “no” to sending them back to Washington when we go to the polls in less than 12 months.

- Sarah Palin

PS: For an idea of the bureaucratic maze that the Pelosi bill would create, take a look at this new chart put out by the Joint Economic Committee.

IBD: Power to Spare, the Palin Way

From Investors Business Daily

As Palin jousts with Biden on energy independence, the government reports that we lead the world in energy reserves. From oil to gas to coal, we are sitting on prosperity. So why are we importing anything?

One of the interesting sidelights of the NY-23 race was an exchange on energy independence between Vice President Joe Biden and the former governor of energy-rich Alaska, Sarah Palin. Biden, who came in to campaign for Democrat Bill Owens, was reminded of the issue of energy.

"The fact of the matter is that Sarah Palin thinks the answer to energy was 'Drill, baby, drill,'" Biden said at an Owens fundraiser, referring to Palin's own campaign slogan last year. "No, it's a lot more complicated, Sarah, than 'Drill, baby, drill.'"

Actually, it's not, according to a new report produced by the Congressional Research Service, hardly an outpost of the vast right-wing conspiracy or on the payroll of Big Oil. The report says that if all our energy resources are added up and converted to a barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), the U.S. has the largest reserves in the world.


Alaska's Chukchi Sea, part of the designated habitat, holds more oil and gas than anyone thought — 1,600 trillion cubic feet of undiscovered gas, or 30% of the world's supply and 83 billion barrels of undiscovered oil, 4% of the estimated global resources.


In her Facebook response to Biden, Gov. Palin noted Biden "cast one of only five votes against the Alaskan pipeline that has produced more than 15 billion barrels of oil, supplied nearly 20% of the nation's oil, created tens of thousands of jobs (and) added hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. economy."

There's more out there not only in the Chukchi Sea, but also locked in Rocky Mountain shale and under the Outer Continental Shelf. Sadly, the report stated that the U.S. has tapped into only 13%, or 21 billion barrels of its oil reserves, with the other 87% still untouched. Drill, Joe, drill.

Demand for Governor Palin's Salina Speech Overwhelms System

Via Doug Brady at C4P

Tickets sales have been extraordinary for Governor Palin's February trip to Kansas to deliver the keynote address to the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce. In fact, according to the Salina Journal, ticket sales have been suspended, at least temporarily, so they can sort through the systemic overload caused by the unprecedented demand:
Because of an overwhelming number of requests, the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce has suspended the sale of tickets to its annual dinner, which will feature former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

"At this point, I am not saying that we're sold out," Chamber president and CEO Dennis Lauver said early Thursday afternoon. "If you've already called us or contacted us, either electronically or by phone, or stopped by our office, what we're asking is that you be patient and not initiate a new request at this time. We are processing those requests at this time."

Chamber officials have also -- at least temporarily -- quit taking phone, e-mail and walk-in requests for tickets to the Feb. 5 annual meeting, Lauver said.

Lauver said all 1,408 dinner seats have been spoken for. The chamber determined, including gallery seats, that they will have 4,000 seats available for the annual meeting. Once workers have processed the requests that have been made, he will know whether further ticket requests can be filled.

Lauver didn't know when the number of tickets to be made available would be established. He said chamber officials were meeting at the Bicentennial Center on Thursday afternoon to try to establish a seating scheme.

Lauver said a record number of ticket requests already had been received, and his office had been overwhelmed.

The previous record for ticket sales for a chamber annual meeting, he said, was about 1,500.

"We are at more than double that right now," he said.

Sarah Palin was interviewed by Glenn Beck, January 19 2009, his first show on the Fox News Channel. Beck became emotional while introducing Governor Palin and recounted the first time he learned about her. Beck has a special needs child of his own.

Beck asked her about President Barack Obama, his administration, and supporting the President. He asked her if she feared there was a global effort to discredit capitalism. Beck was also curious about the last time she went to a Wendys drive-thru and ordered a Frostee on her own.

In a new feature called Meet the People, Beck asked questions submitted by viewers. Palin was asked how people that are not independently wealthy can get involved in politics and how having a special needs child has changed the way she governs.

Note to Mr. Meehan.
1) In line with all your Liberal friends, it seems you have never actually read Palin’s Facebook posts. Had you, you would have known that it’s twitter that is restricted to 140 characters not Facebook. I guess it’s OK to attack her positions without even reading them or knowing what they are.

2) Governor Palin hasn’t used Twitter for over 3 month now.

3) Governor Palin’s book will be out next week and she’s going to make lots of money. Read it and weep. Well, that’s if you can handle anything more than 140 characters.

Sarah Palin: A Victory for Common Sense and Fiscal Sanity

Via Facebook

Congratulations to the new Governors-Elect of Virginia and New Jersey! I’d also like to offer a special word of support to the new Lieutenant Governor-Elect of New Jersey, Kim Guadagno, the first woman to hold that office.

Of course, the real victors in this election are the ordinary men and women who voted for positive change and a return to fiscal sanity. Your voices have been heard.

The race for New York’s 23rd District is not over, just postponed until 2010. The issues of this election have always centered on the economy – on the need for fiscal restraint, smaller government, and policies that encourage jobs. In 2010, these issues will be even more crucial to the electorate. I commend Doug Hoffman and all the other under-dog candidates who have the courage to put themselves out there and run against the odds.

To the tireless grassroots patriots who worked so hard in that race and to future citizen-candidates like Doug, please remember Reagan’s words of encouragement after his defeat in 1976:

“The cause goes on. Don't get cynical because look at yourselves and what you were willing to do, and recognize that there are millions and millions of Americans out there that want what you want, that want it to be that way, that want it to be a shining city on a hill.”

The cause goes on.

I am very, very excited about the upcoming road trip for my book. It will be an honor to meet as many of you as possible!

“Going Rogue” publisher HarperCollins is working hard to schedule book signings across the nation, and we’ll be announcing the locations in the next day or two. I’ve decided to travel to cities outside of the typical book tour venues, and I hope to cover as much of the country as I can.

(Variety is the spice of life!)

Sarah Palin: It’s Imperative That We Exercise Our Right To Vote Today

Via Facebook

“...the right which woman needed above every other, the one indeed which would secure to her all the others, was the right of suffrage.”

Susan B. Anthony used those words to describe the cause she spent her life fighting for: the right of an American woman to cast a ballot for the candidate of her choice. Because of Susan B. Anthony’s tireless efforts and the courage and dedication of countless others, millions of American women will head to the polls today to exercise their right to vote.

When we consider the sacrifices made to give us this right, there is simply no excuse not to vote.

Today, the eyes of the nation are drawn in particular to the three big elections occurring on the east coast. New Jersey and Virginia will be electing new governors, and the 23rd Congressional District of New York will be sending a new representative to Washington D.C. The choices are clear in all three races.

In New York’s 23rd Congressional District race, Doug Hoffman represents the return of the ordinary citizen-politician who is dedicated to bringing fiscal sanity back to Washington, D.C. Doug’s message of cutting spending, lowering taxes, and ending the outrageous growth in the size and scope of the federal government has resonated throughout his district and the country. Voting for Doug Hoffman will send an important message to the powers that be: no more politics as usual.

The governor’s race in New Jersey is a referendum on the failed fiscal policies of the state’s current governor. New Jersey suffers under the highest tax burden in the nation – a burden which has caused many New Jerseyans to leave their home state for better economic prospects elsewhere. Chris Christie is dedicated to ending the reckless spending, the tax hikes, and the corruption that has plagued New Jersey for far too long. A vote for Chris Christie as the next governor of New Jersey will help to lead this great state – “The Crossroads of the Revolution” – back to prosperity.

In Virginia, Bob McDonnell’s commitment to lower taxes and fiscal responsibility make him the common sense choice in the governor’s race. If Bob’s honorable military service and track record as Virginia’s Attorney General are any indications of how he will handle the governorship, then it is safe to say that Virginians have an easy choice to make today.

Candidates like Doug Hoffman, Chris Christie, and Bob McDonnell represent common sense answers to the troubling economic questions facing our nation. They are a vote for fiscal sanity and for leaving our children an American future as bright and as promising as the one our parents left for us.

Please take time today to exercise the right that so many people fought to secure for us. In considering these east coast races, it occurred to me that Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and so many of the women who fought to give future generations the right to vote hailed from these states.

Vote today in honor of our past and with hope for our future.

- Sarah Palin


Quit Making Things Up: Joe Biden

(H/T Joshua Livestro (
C4P) for all your help)


Victoria M. DeFrancesco Soto: Palin killed two birds

Victoria M. DeFrancesco Soto writes on Politico Arena

Sarah Palin killed two birds with one stone in opposing Dede Scozzafava – she knocked out a potential rival and threw a bone to her fans.

Palin’s opposition was less about Scozzafava “blurring the lines” but more about her potentially blurring Palin’s glitter as a female GOP leader. Palin is a big fish in a small female GOP pond. In the 111th Congress there were only 17 Republican women in the House, less than half the number of female Democratic House members (46). Palin is closing the circle, both for moderate and female candidates.

Palin saw too much of herself in Scozzafava – starting out as a city trustee, then mayor, then moving up to a state elected position. Substantively, Palin saw Scozzafava’s superstar potential and she didn’t like it. If elected to a national office could Scozzafava’s next move be one for the executive branch? This was one gamble Palin wasn’t willing to take. Scozzafava leaving the race has a wide range of political implications. However, one that is not at the forefront, but is key to understanding the larger dynamic of the party is the role of women for 2010, and most importantly 2012.
Sorry Ms. DeFrancesco Soto, but you’re way out there.

Palin saw too much of herself in Scozzafava? Which planet have you just landed from? Being a trustee and mayor doesn’t qualify a person for national office. Governor Palin is nothing like Dede Scozzafave. Palin stands for something, Scozzafave, as now evident, stands for nothing.

Conservatives don’t seek Governor Palin’s leadership because she’s a woman. Support for Palin comes from what she stands for and for what she believes in. Governor Palin endorsed Doug Hoffman because she foresaw what we all now know about Scozzafave. If Governor Palin was ever worried about the larger dynamic of the role of women in the party, Dede Scozzafave surly never was and never will be one of Palin’s concerns.


Palin To Speak In Salina

From Greater Salina Chamber of Commerce

The Greater Salina Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that Palin will be the featured speaker at their annual banquet and membership meeting February 5, 2010.

"We are so pleased that Governor Sarah Palin has accepted our invitation to come to Salina as our keynote speaker for the Chamber’s annual meeting,” sDaran Neuschafer, Chairman of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce, said. “Governor Palin was clearly identified as a top choice as speaker early in the process, and the event committee is thrilled that she’ll be with us February 5. To hear from someone with the Governor’s unique experience and perspective of the political landscape will create an exciting evening for everyone, and just continues our long list of high-profile speakers"

The banquet will be held in the arena of the Bicentennial Center, preceded by a membership networking reception in Heritage Hall of the Center.

Sarah Palin: Response to Vice President Biden's Comments Today About My Position On Energy Independence

Via Facebook

As the vice president knows, I have always advocated an all-of-the-above approach to American energy independence. Among other things, my alternative energy goal for Alaska sits at 50 percent because Alaska reached more than 20 percent during my term in office. The Obama-Biden administration, on the other hand, recently announced a renewable goal of only 25 percent. However, domestic drilling should remain a top priority in order to meet America’s consumption and security needs.

The vice president’s extreme opposition to domestic energy development goes all the way back to 1973 when he opposed the Alaska pipeline bill. As Ann Coulter pointed out, “Biden cast one of only five votes against the pipeline that has produced more than 15 billion barrels of oil, supplied nearly 20 percent of this nation’s oil, created tens of thousands of jobs, added hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. economy and reduced money transfers to the nation’s enemies by about the same amount.”

This nonsensical opposition to American domestic energy development continues to this day. Apparently the Obama-Biden administration only approves of offshore drilling in Brazil, where it will provide security and jobs for Brazilians. This election is about American security and American jobs.

There’s one way to tell Vice President Biden that we’re tired of folks in Washington distorting our message and hampering our nation’s progress: Hoffman, Baby, Hoffman!

- Sarah Palin

The Governor responded to this, from abcnews
Campaigning in an upstate New York congressional district, Vice President Joe Biden today attacked his one-time opponent, Sarah Palin, who has led a succession of big-name Republicans in backing the candidacy of the Conservative Party nominee.

Palin Records Calls Urging Virginians To Vote

Via Mel Bryant at C4P

According to CNN, Governor Palin is making robocalls for the governor's race in Viriginia. From CNN's 'Political Ticker' blog:
Less than 48 hours before voters head to the polls to elect a new governor, several Virginians reported receiving robocalls on Sunday from the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, urging them to “vote for Sarah’s principles” on Tuesday.


“Virginia, hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls Tuesday and vote [to share our] principles,” the former Alaska governor says in the call, which was provided to CNN by one Democrat who recorded it. “The eyes of America will be on Virginia and make no mistake about it, every vote counts. So don’t take anything for granted, vote your values on Tuesday, and urge your friends and family to vote, too.”

Meg Stapleton, a spokeswoman for Palin, confirmed the authenticity of the calls.

The Washington Post reports
Tucker Martin, a spokesman for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell, said Palin's calls were not being made at the request of the campaign or the Republican Party of Virginia. He said the campaign had no firsthand knowledge of the calls.
The Post does go on to emphasize
McDonnell epeatedly and personally asked Palin for help this summer, but by late August Palin learned that the McDonnell campaign no longer wanted her assistance, Stapleton told us a few weeks ago.

Chris Daggett Admits Making Things Up

As reported by By Tommy Report at C4P

A conclusion to a story that just made me smile the entire day (I'm still smiling after the Yankees win tonight) (emphasis added).
A Daggett spokesman acknowledges that Daggett’s claim on MSNBC was incorrect.

“She never contacted us asking us to drop out,” Daggett spokesman Tom Johnson told ABC News.

Johnson said Daggett got the incorrect impression about Palin from people on his campaign bus who themselves were mistaken and relying on an unsubstantiated blog item.

“Someone wrote mistakenly on a blog that Sarah Palin asked Chris Daggett to drop out of the race,” said Johnson.

Kevin Gass, a volunteer traveling on the Daggett campaign bus, heard the incorrect Palin item, assumed that it was true and twittered about it from the Daggett campaign bus.

“I could not make this up,” tweeted Gass. “Sarah Palin just asked Chris to pull out of race. Republicans getting scared much?”

It turned out that Palin, who endorsed third party conservative Doug Hoffman over liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava in the 23rd congressional district of New York, had not called on Daggett to leave the New Jersey governor’s race. All she had done in an Oct. 27 Facebook post is urge voters to back Chris Christie, the Republican candidate, over Jon Corzine, the incumbent Democratic governor, and to give money to the Republican Governors Association.

“It seemed plausible, even though it was inaccurate, because [Rudy] Giuliani and other big Republicans have asked him to drop out,” said Johnson.

Johnson said that neither Daggett nor anyone in the campaign knew that the Palin claim was false until the former Alaska governor wrote about it on her Facebook page, prompting reporters to contact the campaign.

“We didn’t know it was inaccurate until Palin put this thing out,” said Johnson.

“It’s a big ado about nothing,” he added. “We’re getting more attention for this than for our detailed plan to cut property taxes by 25 percent.”
I still think Corzine wins this one 45-43 over Christie. James Carville will likely have a poll out tomorrow showing Corzine in the lead and I think he'd be right for the first time in awhile.

I disagree with Tommy on this one. I believe Christie will win, albeit, by a very close margin. May the best man win.

Apparently, Newt was certain that Palin's reputation needed serious burnishing, and he was all too ready to provide it by offering substantial details on the range and style of speeches that would be most appropriate for Palin to deliver to various audiences in order to sustain a public revival. Exactly why he felt she needed his help remains a bit of a mystery, except that Gingrich, like Karl Rove, seems absolutely certain that the world is always on edge awaiting his next tactical stroke of genius.

Now that an intense internecine battle is raging over how Republicans should react to Doug Hoffman's Conservative Party bid for New York's 23rd, one thing is certain: it is Newt whose reputation is in shambles, and it is he who should seek political advice from Palin as to how he might regain his lost stature. And this will remain true whether Mr. Hoffman wins or loses.


...Sarah Palin just compiles conservative esteem. When she railed against the compromised Republican machine in its support of Scozzafava, it felt like a stiff, clean, purifying breeze. In her October 24th Facebook Note announcing her support for Hoffman, Palin argued with deep philosophical references to conservative ideals. Her support and conviction were not products of a focus group. The note moved many a radio talk show host who read it aloud, from Mark Levin to Tammy Bruce. It was the reasoned stance of a visionary.


[S]he has chosen Facebook, not YouTube, as her preferred mode of communication, at least for now. And over and over again, she has proven highly effective and influential, whether discussing health care, energy, China policy, defense, or congressional elections.


None of us knows what Sarah Palin has in mind for 2012 and beyond. But if she is the force that helped us regain the confidence of our convictions, then she will have given us a gift beyond repayment.
