More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 237

"You've got a friend in me" Edition

Phil Jennerjahn at The Jennerjahn Report:
"Israelis were surprised when a strong, principled Christian leader from America arrived in the Holy Land. While Egypt and Libya are in flames, Barack Obama announces his basketball tournament picks. Sarah Palin arrives in Israel to reassure her friends that America supports them. I'm starting to think more and more that Sarah Palin might be the candidate for us in 2012. She hasn't even declared yet, but she is making the other potential candidates look weak in comparison already."
Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs:
"Sarah Palin overwhelms me. She does everything right and decent and good. It is no coincidence that she is right on every issue... She is an extraordinary American, and the more they try to insult and demean her, the larger she looms. I pray she runs -- I really do."
Evil Conservative at Evil Conservative Radio:
"OK. I'm going on record right now as saying I really, really hope Sarah Palin runs for President in 2012... In short, while Obama was off enjoying his taxpayer-funded jetset party-boy lifestyle and making pablum speeches that work against America's long-term interests, Sarah Palin was engaging in real statesmanship, gently bucking up an ally in a time of stress, while sending a message to the rest of the region that, while Obama may be asleep at the wheel, Americans won't let America's government work against Israel for much longer... and certainly not after we have the right leadership in the White House."
John Hinderaker at Power Line:
"Liberals love to insult Sarah Palin's intelligence. It's not a subject on which I have any particular opinion, except to note that, apparently by a remarkable coincidence, her judgment is correct on just about every subject. For instance, Israel."
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:
"After a long day mostly away from the computer yesterday, I got a chance to read Sarah Palin’s speech in India, a success that some in the American media seemed oddly unable to capture in their reporting... The common theme from my perspective was energy, and not just on energy policy... This theme of energy based on individual freedom and smaller government seems to have eluded those assigned to cover Palin’s appearance in India, and it seems that most of the US media ignored it... There was plenty of energy in Palin’s speech. Too bad the media here suffered a bit of a brownout."
Tripti Lahiri at WSJ's India Realtime:
"She came—she didn’t wink—but she conquered. On Saturday evening, Sarah Palin, 2008 Republic vice-presidential candidate and former governor of Alaska, got an extremely warm welcome when she delivered the closing keynote address at a conference in New Delhi."
Vicki McClure Davidson at Frugal Café Blog Zone:
"Some in the ultra-liberal Palin-hate media have trashed Sarah Palin’s speech in India... Of course, they’ll turn a blind eye to Obama’s numerous gaffes, slowness to action, unconstitutional power grabs, and excessive golfing and vacations while criticizing or marginalizing and mocking Palin... The leftists attacked Ronald Reagan every chance they could, too — until now, when they’ve tried foolishly to revise history and compare The Man-Child to The Gipper. Others have applauded her — Palin discussed many topics in her keynote address, including her common-sense vision, her strategic thinking, her conservative values, her views on energy, her concerns about China, the power of the individual, and her distrust of the left-wing media. She said that she and many Americans value India as an ally."
Doug Powers at The Powers That Be:
"Unlike Barack Obama, Sarah Palin didn’t have the coconuts removed from the trees before arriving, preferring to use them for target practice on the way into the auditorium."
Mark Whittington at Associated Content:
"Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin addressed the 2011 India Today Conclave... The speech was well received by the New Delhi audience. Palin continued to lay out what some are beginning to call 'The Palin Doctrine,' describing the interconnection of energy independence, economic vitality and national security. Palin demonstrated a sophisticated and clear eyed view of this interconnection that seems to have been lost to the current President... While the test of the speech was a defense of free market economics and small government, two principles advocated by most Republican politicians since President Ronald Reagan, the energy, economy, national security triad was the key to Palin's presentation. If she decides to run for President, it will be the core of her campaign platform."
Elliot Hannan at TIME:
"If there was any question of whether Sarah Palin's star-appeal translated overseas, the standing-room only crowd when she took the stage Saturday night in New Delhi provided an answer."
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:
"Maher didn’t even have anything to criticize about Palin’s response to the crises in Japan; he had to invent something to make her sound stupid, and then call her names for a cheap laugh. It practically defines the term juvenile, which applies equally to Maher and his audience on this occasion. Maher has been nothing better than a giggly fratboy for several years now. It looks like he’s aiming lower these days, in more ways than one."
Peter Ingremi at Da Techguy's Blog:
"Who are you going to believe? Bill Maher talking on his show or an actual video of Sarah Palin answering questions from a crowd in India? ... When you actually see Palin unfiltered by a hostile media it’s hard to paint her as some kind of idiot."
Joe Kovacs at WorldNetDaily:
"A new poll among WND readers shows former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas the leading choices to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, with some fresh political faces, including two blacks, very close behind. The unscientific survey asked the question, 'Who's your choice for Republican presidential nominee in 2012?' With more than 2,500 people taking part in the WND poll, Palin topped the list of 26 named potential candidates, collecting 289 votes and 11 percent of the total at posting time, with Paul also at 11 percent, gathering 278 votes. Though she hasn't declared whether she'll run for the White House, Palin noted on her Facebook page... that '2012 can't come soon enough.'"
Patrick S. Adams at Patrick's World USA:
"I'll trade you a Jonathan Martin and John F. Harris for Jedediah Bila and Dan Riehl. I'll even throw in a couple of draft picks or players to be named later."
Diana West at
"'Energy is the building block of our economy,' Palin wrote. 'The President is purposely weakening that building block and weakening our economy.' I think Palin's right. This isn't about 'experience,' 'ineptitude' or 'inaction.' Such excuses would explain failure to achieve a more or less conventional goal of, for lack of a better term, American greatness. That just isn't what Obama has in mind. Otherwise, he'd be doing absolutely everything in his considerable presidential powers to bring American oil to market ASAP."
