More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 236

"Run Run Run" Edition

Jennifer at Cubachi:
"One of Israel’s greatest proponents and defenders, Governor Sarah Palin, will be heading to that great and dear ally in the Middle East. During her visit, Palin will visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and tour the holy sites of the Western Wall and the city of Nazareth. She is expected to arrive late Sunday with her husband Todd and stay until Tuesday... Palin is also very popular among the Israeli community. This is a welcomed visit in contrast to Obama’s inane policies against the nation. So what do I make of this visit? It’s a sign that she is running for 2012, and that she wants to reaffirm her commitment to Israel. It’s nice to see that we have some political leaders that recognize the importance of Israel. A very nice contrast to the current Commander-in-Chief."
"For people who say Palin can’t win, they are sure are firing some heavy ammo early and often at her. Safe to say who no one wants to run against at this point."
Merv Benson at PrairiePundit:
"They seem to be upset that she fights back when attacked and they confuse her counter attacks with her positions on the issues. I get the feeling that Politico has decided that since she won't talk with them, they are going to attack her to get the media traffic she drives. She is not doing the politics of grievance as alleged. But, she does tend to fight back more than most politicians. I like the fact that she is a fighter. Palin does have strong policy views that Politico ignores. She is very strong on energy and national defense. Both of those issues will be important in the 2012 election. She is also strong on economics and controlling spending. None of these issues have anything to do with grievance."
Peter Ingremi at Da Techguy's Blog:
"This simply proves Teddy Roosevelt right when he said: 'Speak softly and carry a Big Stick,' and Sarah Palin (who called for a no fly zone weeks ago when it would have worked) who said: '2012 can’t come fast enough.'"
Aaron Katsman at Israel Opportunity Investor:
"Is Sarah Palin’s Israel Trip a Prelude to a Presidential Run? ... She has continually ripped President Obama about his stance on Israel, and his policy in general of weakening diplomatic relationships with allies, in favor of cozying up to let’s just say those who don’t hold democracy in high regard. She plans on meeting Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, where Iam sure they will speak on a myriad of issues. I would love to get Palin’s take on Israel’s energy policy, with all of the natural gas discovery as well as her thoughts on the Israeli clean tech industry. She is an expert in U.S. energy policy and her opinions in Israel should be listened to. Let’s hope that the Israeli media covers her trip fairly and leaves her alone. Something that I am sure she would welcome after the constant media onslaught she faces, unfairly, in the United States."
Holly Bailey at The Ticket:
"Here's more evidence that the road to the 2012 GOP nomination leads through Israel: Sarah Palin will make her first visit to the country early next week."
Clifton B at Another Black Conservative:
"This is an obvious trip for Palin. She has always been a strong supporter of Israel. As governor before being picked as VP, Palin had an Israeli flag in her office. Like her visit to India, this trip, too, is another sign that she is going to run (especially since she is meeting with Netanyahu). Choosing India, the world's largest democracy, and Israel, the Middle East's only democracy, suggests to me that a President Palin would have a pro-democracy foreign policy. That would be a welcome change from the very confusing, ineffective and weak foreign policy we are currently stuck with."
Rick at Wizbang:
"Barack Hussein Obama is proving to not be the person the media portrayed him to be... And Sarah Palin is proving to not be the person the media portrayed her to be... What's the lesson here folks?"
Jennifer Harper at The Washington Times:
"Pollsters and pundits who declare Sarah Palin a political has-been and Republican irritant should curb their appetites... On Sunday, she journeys to Israel, culminating in a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss 'key issues facing his country, our ally Israel,' Mrs. Palin says. Critics already are dismissing the visit as a maneuver to court Jewish voters or raise campaign funds. Those conclusions are premature."
Adrienne Ross at Motivation Truth:
"She's right: 2012 certainly can't come soon enough. Is that a semi-announcement, Governor? :) "
Larry Perrault at Texas GOP Vote:
"So far, we aren’t even arresting the growth of the debt, and some don’t even want to do that. I think there are a few governors and former governors out there with the sense and fortitude to press this process forward. But Sarah Palin is surely among that few. Put her in that position, and watch her deliberate disposal of those who would try to stop her. She has executive experience on several levels, at all of which she was effective and through [and] rose quickly. I agree with George Will that Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is a sober executive... But Daniels nor anyone else has the manifest facility of Palin to engage and enthuse people. I like Daniels. And Tim Pawlenty seems like a decent fellow. I enjoy listening to Newt Gingrich’s thinking sometimes. I supported Mike Huckabee in 2008, and he was engaging with rooms of voters. And I think he’d be a serious and deliberate president. Let’s see, did I leave someone out? Oh yeah, there’s that rich former governor with the nice suit and hair. Those are his best attributes. But, I can guarantee you that none of them will be drawing and inspiring waving and shouting crowds in the many thousands! Ronald Reagan didn’t even do that. That stuff doesn’t grow on trees! And, it puzzles me how experienced political observers can so easily dismiss it. Is that just more indication of Republicans as the STUPID party?"
Lindsay Stewart at Fox News Politics Blog:
"With a staggering 440,870 followers on Twitter, 2,771,899 friends on Facebook, and countless speaking arrangement requests, Sarah Palin is spending quality time galvanizing her political base, and making major money in the process."
Chris at The "Right" Solutions:
"One of the first to speak out about Gaddafi in Libya was Sarah Palin, where she called for an end to Gaddafi's reign, as well as the enactment of a No-Fly Zone, to protect those protesting against Gaddafi. For nearly one month, America dithered and the president was absent, punting it off to the UN, France and Great Britain. This week, the UN Security Council voted to enact a No-Fly Zone in Libya, and today, the United States fired Tomahawk missiles into Libya to enforce the No-Fly Zone. While we hope this action meets its objectives, there is some question about whether this was too little, too late, along with the fact that there has been no action by the American government to find/meet with the leader(s) of the Libyan opposition who may take power and form a new government, if Gaddafi is to be overthrown."
DrJohn at Flopping Aces:
"Now that the dust is settling in Libya, Barack Obama is taking a position. This is exactly the same as he’s done for his entire career. And the position he’s finally gotten around to taking is Sarah Palin’s. She got there on February 23."
Aaron Goldstein at American Spectator:
"If I cannot stomach the thought of Sarah Palin leading the party then why would I go to the trouble of defending her at every possible turn? Anyone who is disinclined to give me the benefit of the doubt on that score can check for yourself here, here, here, here and here. I'll go further than that. If Sarah Palin decides to run for President she has my unconditional support. I hope this clarifies matters."
