Sarah Is Findign Her Groove

Sarah Palin's interview on Hannity earlier this week was a home run, and it appears she is finding her sweet spot in these give and takes. When she first started as a Fox News contributor there was a slight nervousness and she did seem to repeat herself a lot. Now there's more depth of understanding and an incredibly likable connection that seems natural with her.  I watched the interview, trying to be as objective as possible, and found myself informed in a reasonable common sense way that brought the issue into clear view for me and I'm sure millions of other Americans. I turned to me wife who had just walked into the room and asked her to watch it as I pushed the DVR replay button. She sat there silently and had the exact same reaction at the conclusion of the interview. Up to this point she has not been all that enthusiastic about the governor. She appreciated Sarah's ability to break down the immigration law in Arizona to easily understandable terms that cut through all the race baiting rhetoric.

Sarah's ability to unite the country rather than divide it will speak to most Americans except of course those that wish to divide for political advantage. Much like our illustrious president who seems to want to turn the immigration debate into a racial rather than law enforcement issue. He understands he loses when it comes to the legality of immigration so his attempt to divide on racial lines is not constructive, and is devolving into the least common denominator. It's painful to watch a president who took an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States politicize this issue on racial grounds for some democrat bump in the midterms. It will not work, and Sarah understands the American people are not racists, and the idea of labeling them as such for political advantage is anathema. Her ability to shed the vicious attacks on her by the far left is refreshing and bodes well for a presidential run in 2012. There will be no name she hasn't been called, and every derogatory label will have been used and failed to stick. She continues to be a champion of common sense conservatives as well as a lightning rod to the left. The big question is, does she have the ability to reach that squishy middle and explode the narrative the left has tried to construct about her?

If she continues with successful and revealing interviews like this recent one, and can gain the ear of the undecided she should progress far beyond any ones expectations. We all remember that her initial coming out at the republican convention in 2008 was a smashing success, and the more she can articulate her views and policy positions without a mainstream media filter the better her chances of winning over the public that has been bombarded with misinformation about her. The narrative the left has projected is tired and easily destroyed with just a few minutes of Sarah being herself with charm and grace. Truly no politician in my lifetime appears to have the ability to connect with common sense Americans like Sarah Palin. Americans are tired of being talked down to by the ruling elite, and crave a real down to earth leader that shares their values and a strong sense of patriotic duty. The stars may be aligned for a small government, common sense conservative politician, with free market experience and a strong sense of right and wrong. The president and the democrats over reach may be paving the road for just that. Their assaults on freedom and free markets plus Sarah's championing the same are nurturing an environment for a massive shift back to a government by, for, and of the people.Watch Sarah's interview here...

Sarah's Takes America's Side

It seems absolutely absurd that the president of the United States would make a statement like he did the other day, "whether we like it or not we remain a dominant military superpower." Sarah Palin picked up on the presidents obvious bone headed statement to once again reveal his problem with our unmatched power. Once again she makes a Face book posting that hits this president right where it hurts. She never seems to miss an opportunity to point out the very un-American leanings of our American president. If most people are as offended by Obama's statement as I am, then they should be just as appreciative that Sarah is holding him accountable.

These types of statements seem to be coming at an increased regularity. In an answer to a reporters question about American Exceptionalism Obama responded by saying, "I believe in American exceptionalism just as I suspect  the Brits would believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." This shows he really doesn't understand why America is the exception and not the rule, as he's confusing exceptionalism with national pride. That may be why he's trying to move our country to a European style of socialism and blur the lines between America and the rest of the world.

Sarah, on the other hand understands what makes this country great and different than any other in the history of mankind. She knows why we've, up to this point been the envy of the world and a refuge from tyranny and oppression. She has the same kind of positive outlook that resided in Ronald Reagan that brought us out from the malaise of the Carter years and put us on a road to economic and psychological recovery. It's time to applaud those that defend and uphold our values rather than apologize for them like this president has repeatedly done. Obama is making a midterm massacre seem like a slam dunk, although none of us should take it for granted and we should continue to fight with every fiber of our being to make sure it happens.

We should all pick up on Sarah's lead and not let anti-American statements by this administration and the democrats in congress go without a challenge, and be sure they're brought to the attention of everyone in our sphere of influence. We can win this battle one voter at a time, so go out and educate yourself. Stay informed and remember we have our little general running interference in the mainstream media that starts a dialogue that will expose this president for who is, and what he's attempting to do to our country.

Sarah Continues Her Assault On Obama

As we move into a vicious and contentious midterm election this November, Sarah Palin continues to be the big draw and still is keeping the president as well as democrats on the defensive. Her appearance with Sean Hannity and Michele Bachmann in Minnesota this last Wednesday showed her star power as thousands attended and the crowd diminished considerable after she left the stage. Her critique of Obama's new nuclear non-proliferation doctrine drew a question for Obama from George Stephanapoulis on a Good Morning America segment. You could see that the messiah was visibly annoyed at the question, as he tried to dismiss Sarah's take on the issue as inconsequential, and contended she lacked any kind of experience in nuclear issues.

Sarah shot back at the SRLC, Southern Republican Leadership Conference, later in the week and  mocked Obama's nuclear experience as a community organizer. She has an inherent ability to strike at the core of Obama's inexperience  with humor and derision that usually sends the audience into uproarious laughter. The president would be wise not to engage her, as Sarah's followup remarks are damaging and always get much press. Could it be a preview of presidential debates to come? Her appearance at the conference was very well received and the conference as a whole was full of excellent speeches.

Tina Fey hosted Saturday Night Live this week and of course what would her appearance be without a Sarah Palin impression segment. The mocking segment of the Sarah Palin Network was actually quite funny, and really showed a contrast between Sarah's common sense approach  as opposed to Obama's intellectual theory form of governing. I don't know if it was intentional but it actually struck a note of how out of touch this president is with the American people. I'm sure she was trying to paint Sarah as a simplistic ditz, but by contrasting Obama's agenda and pointing out how the American people are now beginning to view his policies, he didn't come off all that well. Of course she had to take a shot at Tea Party activists and try to make them look stupid, fat, and tobacco chewing rednecks. The problem is the demographics of Tea Party participants is just the opposite. Rather then Sarah supporters getting upset at Fey's mocking impressions, they should rejoice, understanding that impression is the highest form of flattery, and if Sarah wasn't relevant to the debate there would be none of this. As a conservative man, I can't help but notice that even though Fey does a decent impression, she pales in comparison to Sarah's beauty.

As we move closer to those vaunted midterms, Sarah's appearance in news story will undoubtedly increase as she crisscrosses the country campaigning for conservatives everywhere. This administration will be swamped with questions about Sarah's criticism and this should make for some interesting coverage. I'm wondering if news rooms around the country will continue to take flak from the administration for asking the messiah questions about Sarah's take on the issues. As a Chicago style community organizer, we all know how prickly he can get when he's not allowed to control the debate. Sarah gets under the skin of this administration and the democrats more than any one individual out there today.

Sarah Hosts Real American Stories

Sarah's hosting of Real American Stories Thursday night on the Fox News channel was excellent. The show was inspiring much like Sarah herself. She seemed completely comfortable in this format. What Americans need today is more of this kind of programming that highlight the inspirational and heart tucking stories of Americans who've overcome adversity, or have been unusually heroic. The human spirit is limitless in it's ability to overcome any situation, and I can't think of a more appropriate host than Sarah Palin. She has overcome the odds and venomous attacks to come out the other side with a cheerful positivity that is attracting conservative and others all over the country. She has a gift of making  comfortable those she had on the show. When the dog Elia wouldn't respond to commands she adroitly mentioned maybe he thought you'd said fetch. Earlier the Mother has revealed that was one command he wouldn't obey. It brought some levity to an uncomfortable moment for the family. That is a gift that few people possess. Ronald Reagan had that ability.

Sarah kicked off the first stop at the Tea Party Express last week in Searchlight Nevada to a rousing crowd. You almost feel sorry for poor old Harry Reid, with that kind of crowd gathering in his home town rallying against his leadership and unfortunate deal making that rammed through an un-popular and unwise health care bill. Next week she joins Sean Hannity and Michele Bachmann in Minnesota for another huge gathering. These two dynamic conservative women are doing more to resist the agenda of Barack Obama than most of the republican men combined. Kudos to the strong and conservative female contingent that is also providing leadership in the Tea Part Movement all over the country. We men will have to step up our game to keep up with an overwhelming increase in conservative women finding their voice in opposition to what is happening to our country. We shouldn't be intimidated, just inspired, and there is no greater inspiration then Sarah Palin.
