The unsinkable Sarah Palin is now free to fight on HER terms

by CynthiaYockey on July 26, 2009

Today is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s last day in office as governor. In the 2008 presidential race, she was the most qualified of the four candidates on the Republican and Democratic tickets to be president, as a self-made woman with executive office experience and profound expertise on one of the most pressing issues facing our nation — energy and energy independence. Gov. Palin also has an extremely intelligent grasp of the policies a government must enact for its people to prosper on their own terms and for a nation to be safe in a dangerous world.

If Gov. Palin had been sworn into office as president on Jan. 20, 2009, our nation would NOT have quadrupled the deficit and nationalized entire industries, businesses would have faith in the future, unemployment would be below eight percent, the stock market would be over 9,000 and we would be pulling out of the recession. Instead, the oath of office was taken by a sociopath whose only full-time job in his adult life was as a copy editor in his 20’s and who is hellbent on destroying America as a democratic republic powered by capitalism.

I will be relentless in pointing out that Sarah Palin would be a better president RIGHT NOW than Barack Obama can ever hope to be. The mountain of evidence you have to ignore to buy the propaganda that she is not ready RIGHT NOW and certainly better than Barack Obama RIGHT NOW is so huge that the columnists and bloggers who ignore it and buy into the Obama propaganda that she has to do ANYTHING to be a better president than he is have completely shredded their credibility and shone an extremely unflattering spotlight on their judgment and perspicacity.

Several telling polls have been in the news this week. A Washington Post-ABC News poll shows Gov. Palin at -13 in her approval rating among Americans (40 percent approve minus the 53 percent who disapprove). Another by Rasmussen shows that Obama’s approval rating among all likely voters hit -11 today (7/26/09) — only 29 percent strongly approve of Obama, while 40 percent strongly disapprove (29 – 40 = -11). Allahpundit at Hot Air points out that Zogby found Obama’s approval rating fell to 48 percent this week, while Rasmussen measured it at 49 percent. Rasmussen also released a poll on July 20 showing that, if the vote were held now, a 2012 match-up between Obama and Mitt Romney  would be a tie, 45-45, while a match between Obama and Sarah Palin would be won by Obama, 48 to 42 percent, assuming Obama’s not in jail before then, which is not a safe assumption.

Obama's approval rating among likely voters has dropped to -11 as of July 26, 2009, according to Rasmussen Reports.

OK, first, with the entire mainstream media establishment AND the Democratic Party AND feminists AND the left blogosphere — and way too many backstabbing conservatives whose elitist sense of entitlement means the world no longer makes sense to them when an upstart like Gov. Palin with a state university degree can beat the Ivy League and plutocratic aristocracy — ALL working night and day to destroy Gov. Palin, a -13 percent negative rating is the BEST they could do?


Now that Gov. Palin is unchained from the post where any and every loon could and did throw garbage at her in the form of phony ethics complaints and lies and attacks on her children, she can fight back. She is free to earn money by speaking and writing. She is free to raise money. She is free to travel to support the candidates and causes she believes in. She is free to get to know people in the lower 48 states and for us to get to know her. I agree with Mary Matalin — I think Sarah Palin is a genius for resigning and totally changing the game to her terms. That’s how you win. THAT’S WHAT WINNERS DO!

As for Mitt Romney polling better than Gov. Palin when matched against Barack Obama, I see Gov. Palin as the come-from-behind, dark horse victor in 2012. I think Romney is getting support because he is a handsome and successful man. But he signed socialized medicine into law for Massachusetts. That is a poison pill that fiscal conservatives will not swallow. Plus, sooner or later Romney will start speaking in public again, and people will remember why they zzzzzzzzzzz. Oops! Sorry — I dozed off for a moment just thinking about it.

What about Mike Huckabee? To be honest, I’ve never really had Mike Huckabee on my radar and don’t know much about him. But if the match-up between the Republican candidate and Obama in 2012 is a David-and-Goliath battle, what Goliaths has Huckabee defeated? Any? I think it’s none. However, Gov. Palin HAS brought down Goliaths. It takes a special kind of genius and skill to that. Sarah Palin has both. The others do not. Plus, Huckabee is likable, but not charismatic. Gov. Palin has charisma.

Regarding Obama’s poll numbers, he is sinking as the truth about him and his fell plans for America (and Israel) are starting to dawn on a stunned and duped electorate. Even with all of the lies told in his favor, AND all the cover-ups committed on his behalf 24/7/365 by the mainstream media, the left blogosphere, feminists and the Democratic Party — all of that COMBINED is not enough to keep Obama’s approval ratings up.

So — Palin for president in 2012! She CAN win!

The State run media and the leftist elites have basically become circus clowns in the biggest show on earth. Everyone knows that you laugh at the circus clowns. It’s the aerial artists that the crowd comes to see.

Sarah Palin is the ultimate aerial artist that moms and dads across the country see as someone who holds our attention and in whom we admire for her hard work and dedication to her family.

As Ronald Reagan once said, “Don’t be afraid to see what you see.”

Oh my friends, I believe that the State run media and the leftist elites do see Sarah Palin and they are afraid. Very afraid . . . .

Thanks for sharing this Cynthia. The video of her farewell picnic from yesterday was awesome, too. As usual, she made it mainly about her profound devotion to those who serve in the military. But, I cheered aloud when she was speaking about her pride in America, and paraphrasing, we should NEVER apologize for the greatness of our nation. This is how I want my country represented, and she is the person to do it.
I hope you saw the pic yesterday of her in her Patriot shirt, with a copy of Levin’s Liberty & Tyranny in her lap. It was euphoric for this Conservative!

Sarah is fantastic and we will have a female president in 2012. Let me tell you about Huckabee, Cynthia. He’s a nasty piece of work. Remember that line from Hamlet: “that one could smile and smile and be a villain”? That’s Huckabee. He’s a plain and simple bitch. Smiling sweetly and sticking in the knife and pretending, ‘oh, is that a knife in your back? Let me help you get it out.’ Then he’ll push the knife in deeper. All that stuff about Romney’s Mormonism? Huckabee. He stayed in and made sure that we got McCain just so that Romney would not be the candidate. The one benefit was that we got Sarah Palin. If Huckabee is the GOP candidate, I’m not even voting.

What a great blog you have here! I am Conservative myself. I was wondering if you could exchange links with my humor blog. Let me know if this is possible!

Yes, I’ve added you to my “Humor” blogroll. I hope you will add my blog to yours as “A Conservative Lesbian.” Thanks!

Apodoca is being too kind to Huckabee. To call the Huckster a scumbag is to insult scumbags.

As for Sarah, your points on energy are spot on. There is another point that no one has mentioned…

Since it seems that education is now a federal deal (when did that happen?) the daughter of a teacher/coach and school secretary should know far more about education than the crowd of lawyers in politics these days. I could see Sarah putting her Dad in as Education Secretary.

Hey! Take a look at my blogroll. I talked to the kids, they tell me that if the grandkids ask, it’s time they got the explanation.
