I don't think conservative middle America is ready to give her up.
I don't see her as top candidate in 2012, but she is garnering support from the business community as well as small town and rural America.

Your gift? Our current premier in Alberta is even more conservative- she is about on a par with the Prime Minister of Canada.
In Canadian politics, she would be one in the crowd (prettier, though).

Sarah's speech in Calgary gave Albertans pretty much what they wanted to hear. She praised the energy policy and the development of Canadian petroleum resources, and called for small government with low expenditures, low taxes and free markets.

"What she really pushed at the BMO Centre (Bank of Montreal Building auditorium) was a message of energy development, competition, smaller government- and her doubts that climate change science was a settled thing.
"We've got to become more energy independent," she said.
"Her concern, Palin said, is waiting around for unfriendly regimes to develop their resources. Relying on those nations puts the United States in a less safe and less prosperous position, Palin said.
......
"Lauding Canada's approach to the environment, Palin said this country has sought to balance environmental progress with economic concerns."

She criticized the mainstream media. She mentioned the false reporting of her statements, and the press taking remarks in parody or comedy routines as her own- one she mentioned was the one which credited her with saying she could look out her window and see Russia- this one was from a comedy routine and was not said by her.

"Her low tax, small government assertions went down well with a Calgary audience that appeared sympathetic to her vision.
"The massive debt the United States has incurred is "immoral," Palin said, as it will be left for today's children to eventually pick up the bill.
"In the audience were both Calgary business leaders and politicians."
.............. Tory Lee Richardson, the Calgary Centre MP (member of Parliament) said "Palin drew an audience that was receptive to her message.
"I thought it was impressive," he said.
Another in the audience was Gary Holden, CEO of ENMAX (supplier of gas to Calgary, etc.). "He said Palin was someone of high principle whose conservative views went down well here."
Holden also remarked on her championing of the Alaska pipeline, which he views as competition to Alberta.

Richard Cuthbertson, Calgary Herald article, March 7, 2010.

The theocratic push seems to be coming mostly from Texas. I don't see Palin as central to it although she has espoused some of its ideas.

The idea is to enshrine the idea of the U. S. as a 'Christian' nation in the Constitution and the law.

Obama groomed for a sinister takeover? Well, possibly to aid a Daly takeover nationally, but we have had other political machines come and go. Nothing sinister, just business as usual.

I agree that religion is important among her supporters. One must also recognise that in a small puddle such as her corner of Alaska, membership in the church that is popular locally is desirable.
As Palin enters a larger stage, she undoubtedly will broaden her stance.

Remember that Obama had to distance himself from the views of the pastor of a church he attended, and modify his stance.

I don't see Palin as a standard bearer in 2012, but her support might make or break a candidate when the conventions roll around. She may fit a No. 2 spot again.

It is too early to start anointing the one, the only, the true Republican standard bearer at this time.
Romney will be stronger than he was in the last election, and he has the billions required. He is spending a lot of time on the TV.
That young one from Massachusetts is rising fast and is on the speaking trail as well. There is time for another 'star' to arise.

Akenaton gets the point that I hope that everyone gets. Sarah Palin is not much of a risk as a Presidential candidate several years from now.

She has been the chief voice of opposition to the policies of the current administration, opposition that has fought a popular (before Palin and others started chipping away) President to a virtual standstill.

Carol is still focused on whether she used to belong to a church that has some vague connection to some extreme outfit that is vaguely repugnant to people like her. Who cares? Why is this about Palin?

Palin is getting good money for speaking to big crowds with great news coverage right now. She isn't going to stop. She is not a fool to be ignored. She isn't losing her fight; she is winning.

She is plenty bright, has good character, has a good record of sound administration of a little state government, is not particularly extreme, and is very appealing to our political opponents. The best we seem to be able to do is try to land telling slurs about the church she used to go to, or where she writes her interview reminders.

If we don't get serious, we are going to be toasted by someone whose only tools are a little charm and national audience.

I'm sure glad to read that the country favors a health care bill, 'cause it sort of looked for a while there that the Democrats thought that passing that bill might lead to a complete electoral disaster.

I'll sleep easier knowing that Pelosi, Reid and the President knew what they were doing all along and have robust support from their grateful nation. The Democrats have nothing to fear if they just stay the course.

I'm sure that the Republicans, particularly Palin, are quaking in their boots now that Newsweek has uncovered their falseness in blocking this popular legislation. The nation was never on the side of the Republicans; Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts elections are anomalies; and the few house Democrats who were dragging their feet will fall into line real soon.

We can all thank Newsweek for their insightful poll. We certainly don't need to heed the foolish and misleading statements of the people who don't like such popular legislation.

So it appears the dear lady and her yapping lapdog both need some instruction in elementary political science.

Surprising--I thought they were intelligent, well-read people. Perhaps I was wrong on that.

The dear lady should read her own link.   Especially "risky gambit". And note the people in favor of using reconciliation for the public option. Exactly how many are new supporters of the "public option"?

I've done a bit of research on the "polls" which "all support" the public option.   Now one is from the "Progressive Change Campaign Committee". Certainly a sterling objective group.

And another is the New York Times. But take some time to read the actual report on the "poll".   "In favor" of the public option, a majority. However, in the words of my favorite political analyst, Shania Twain:   "That don't impress me much". It's somewhat amazing I have to stoop to explain the situation to political cliches.   But perhaps the two posters mentioned above have a hard time with anything else.

Try: " The devil is in the details".

For a poll to be credible we will need:

1)   Date
2) Who sponsored it
3) Exact wording
4) Does it deal with the financing of the "public option"?. Sure, in isolation, I'm sure many would like to have the option of government-sponsored health care. But when you talk about deficits--which have been predicted by the CBO with the Democratic health plan reform basically forever--you play into the hands of Palin--remember her--the actual topic of the thread--and her cronies.

The usual line is something along the lines of: "We are burying our grandchildren under a mountain of debt".   Of course, added to the usual lines about "death panels" and "government bureaucrats substituting their judgment for that of your doctor"

The NYT poll appears to have mentioned nothing about financing.   This is a problem, to say the least.



And then we have the dear lady's assertion:   20 Feb 2010 4:58 PM:   "There is absolutely nothing preventing the Democrats from passing a health care bill with a public option".

A sublimely meaningless statement:

1)   "the Democrats".   I refer her to Will Rogers.

2)    I also refer her to the "big tent" concept.   And if she does not know what that is, I will be only too happy to explain. Feel free to ask.

3)   Don't forget the above "Devil".


But congratulations to you both for staying out of the gutter--for one post. Let's see how long you can keep it up.    Good work.

One of the really big problems is some Republicans have seized on the concept that if they can prevent health care from passing, they can run Obama out of town on the failure of this one issue. That being the case, they'll do anything to defeat it without regard for the merits or the needs of the American public.

As you said, Riginslinger, the jobs bill has not actually been passed into law yet.

Since the troll isn't going to answer that question, I will. Two bills have been passed into law since Brown was elected. Both of them are bills that are for the purpose of helping Haiti.   No bills have so far been passed since Brown was elected that have any effect on the lives of the voters in the US (unless they have family in Haiti, perhaps). And since the troll made the comment along the lines of "if the Democratic majority means anything" (my response to which he has been following me around the Mudcat and serially abusing me for making) after Brown was elected, and since the comment pertained to the present tense, my response that it does not, also logically pertains to the present tense. Which means that now in the period after Brown was elected, the Democratic majority appears to not mean much of anything at all. Congress is deadlocked.

If they somehow manage to pass any legislation into law that actually has any real impact on the lives of the voters here in the US, then I will revise my thinking on this - if it's not just a regurgitation of the Bush era policies. But not until then. But of course, he doesn't really care what I think about anything. He's just looking for excuses to abuse people.

I also note with interest that I appear to be the only poster so far who not only has said exactly what the Democrats should have done, but also predicts what they will do now. President Obama is proving a very good politician.   The health care "summit" will show all parties that the Republican leadership has no productive ideas on health care--aside from Sen Snowe's rejected idea.

The failure of the summit will give Democrats in moderate or conservative districts cover to vote for "reconciliation". But still no public option. Liberals have squandered the only chance for even a back-door public option--the fear of the WSJ editorial page--by rejecting Sen Snowe's trigger.

Certainly good that our gentle lady poster recognizes reality to the extent that she will accept this lack of a public option--it's essential that some health care reform bill be passed--soon.   So Congress can get on to a more direct assault on the recession--and perhaps mitigate the otherwise likely Democratic bloodbath in the fall.

"meaningless majority".    Wrong again. The good lady's track record is turning out to be a rather good negative indicator.

No health care bill has been passed by Congress. However, other bills have been passed in this Congress, as I have pointed out.

As a sage likes to say:   "Please try to keep up."

And we're still waiting patiently for her to tell us just how the public option is to be put back into the health care bill. Especially since the latest proposal, by the President, does not include it.

Her capacity for self-delusion is quite remarkable.





It does seem that we have made some progress however.   The dear lady appears to have realized that gutter language--though she seems to derive great enjoyment from it--isn't really necessary to have a political discussion.

Except possibly in her circles, where it might be just the normal way to communicate--who knows how she lives?

Admittedly it does not to have yet seeped into her giant brain that there is in fact a difference between a troll and a person who politely asks her to back up a statement.

Except again, possibly in her circles.

I considered continuing with "Mrs. B. S. Banshee"--it certainly does have a nice ring, and admirably captures her attitude at certain points. But I've decided not to call her "Mrs. B.S. Banshee". while keeping "Mrs. B S. Banshee" on reserve should it be needed.

And of course that also means I won't be able to use "termagant" in this context, since inflammatory language is to be shunned.   This is a particularly bitter pill, since I've waited years to use "termagant" in conversation--and it fits so perfectly.


Progress has also been made, it appears, in that she seems to realize that her mention of "filibuster-proof majority" was totally pointless--since this beast has not been sighted since long before 2008.

She has even grudgingly uttered the dread word "compromise".   "Maybe compromise is necessary". ( Now there's a ringing endorsement of compromise.)

No "maybe". It is in fact necessary--and is virtually always necessary in politics, with very few exceptions. Maybe she will eventually even learn this lesson.

In fact, the poster seems every sign of being on the road to becoming a reasonable person. Even the yapping of her "why don't you and him fight?" lapdog Greg does not seem to have stopped these favorable developments.

I'm proud of her.

Something on the news yesterday about the Dems wanting to discuss options with the Republicans, but they may not listen since the Dems shot their wad pushing the 60 votes in their face.

That's just posturing. If the Democrats had pushed the 60 votes in the face of the Republicans, we would have a bill already passed and signed by now.

Yes, Ron Paul won, but as I pointed out, these polls are meaningless at this time.
There may be a new name or two at the end of the year after congressional elections, and the run for 2012 begins.
