More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 293

"Playing with fire" Edition

Tyrone, at Wake up Black America:
“Sarah Palin is still around after all the attacks from the left and even the right. I know why she is still around and has even managed to continue to grow. Sarah Palin doesn't think like a traditional politician, so why would anyone expect her to respond like a traditional politician... The wizards of smart keep saying that Palin isn't going to run for the GOP nomination, but they still can't completely dismiss it. The media who hate the very ground the woman walks on are desperate to follow her wherever she goes. They are now crying, because she won't give them an itinerary of the stops she is going to make on her One Nation Bus Tour. The wizards of smart can't even predict the actions of a woman they claim is intellectually beneath them. So who's really the stupid one? Palin the so called intellectual lightweight has clouded the field... Confusing your opponents is one of the best tactics in defeating them... The people still foolish enough to underestimate Sarah Palin are playing with fire.”
John Hayward, at Human Events:
“Palin In New Hampshire... It has been strange listening to some people complain this is unfair to Romney. June 2 is not Mitt Romney Day.”
Joe Battenfeld, at the Boston Herald:
“Welcome back to the White House fight, Gov. Romney. Too bad you already lost the first round. While you were planning your big ‘announcement’ in New Hampshire, Sarah Palin was rolling her magical mystery tour into your home state, complete with a small army of tweet-happy media... Palin seems to understand what other candidates don’t right now. The 2012 campaign is going to be driven mostly by Internet buzz and social media, not scripted speeches and the network news. Palin uses Twitter to communicate. Romney uses PowerPoint. I’m pretty sure Newt Gingrich still uses a slide projector. The former Alaska governor also isn’t afraid to mix it up with her rivals, and the dreaded mainstream media. This strategy also ensures she will dominate the race until or unless she gets out (and I don’t think she will).”
Steve Duprey, RNC National Committeeman For New Hampshire:
“Simply by putting her family in a bus and touring around the country she’s generating more media attention than most candidates... She’s changed the conversation just by getting on a bus.”
The Editors of Investors Business Daily:
“The former governor of energy-rich Alaska calls the administration's bluff: End tax breaks for all forms of energy, she says, and let the free market pick winners and losers. End the ethanol pandering too. She isn't running, or riding, for president, at least not yet. But at a stop on her One Nation bus tour, Sarah Palin offered a winning idea for an economy strapped for energy and jobs and saddled with unsustainable debt... We disagree with Romney when he told an Iowa voter, ‘I believe ethanol is an important part of our energy solution for our country.’ Putting food in our gas tanks is an absurd and expensive idea when we have at least triple the fossil fuel reserves of Saudi Arabia locked up by federal edict. Even Al Gore admitted he supported ethanol only out of political necessity. We like Sarah's idea: Eliminate all energy subsidies and couple that with the elimination of all production restrictions off America's coasts and in shale formations throughout the U.S.”
Bungalow Bill, at BBCW:
“Palin continues to move to the real right.”
Shushannah Walshe, at The Daily Beast:
“On the sidewalk, dozens of people surrounded the former governor, many taking cellphone photos... One woman, Janet Bernard, who described herself as a ‘union worker” and ‘diehard Democrat,’ told Palin she thought Republicans only wanted to help people ‘with money’ and not ‘working people.’ Palin handled the challenge with aplomb: ‘We have to make it about working people.’ Bernard, who seemed satisfied, wished Palin ‘all the best.’”
Tom Jensen, at Public Policy Polling's blog:
“Cain and Palin have been the biggest beneficiaries in Iowa of Huckabee and Trump's decisions not to run.”
Ron Reale, at Coach Is Right:
“The progressive left and their willing acolytes in the media are about to show us why we need this woman... Every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth to speak the truth of America’s greatness and unique position in the world of energy production, and the fact that America has more oil than the rest of the world, is a threat to their corrupt, failed, government-subsidized-or-they-can’t-exist green policies. I don’t know for sure if she’s running, but as long as she is out there drawing the lightning from the left with grace, humor and the confidence that comes with knowing you are right, I’m in her corner. Run, Sarah, Run! They are going to try to destroy you either way, so go get ‘em, Sarah!”
Charles Hurt, at The Washington Times:
“She is loathed by all the right hate-filled people.”
AWR Hawkins, at Big Government:
“Although I hate to be the one to break it to Mr. Will, he’s missed the point completely. While he’s offering commentary to snooty viewers on a Sunday morning show few care about, Palin is mixing with the people in a way that assures them she is one of them. She is meeting Americans where they are... My goal in all this is to point out how wrong the media is when it comes to Palin. Just when they think they’ve got her on the run, it turns out they’re running behind her trying to catch up. And even as intellectuals (on either side of the aisle) right Palin off as unfit for the presidency, the people rally around her, hang on her words, and hope she’ll say she’s running. Until then, the question that will be asked again and again is, ‘Can Sarah Palin really defeat Barack Obama?’ The answer to that is a straightforward ‘you betcha.’”
philmon, at The Clue Batting Cage:
“Wow. And they wonder what we see in this woman.”
David Riddick, at The Aged P:
“An odd thing is happening in the UK media, and I doubt it’s anything to do with Killer Cucumbers. After nearly three years of dismissing Sarah Palin as airhead homophobic racist religious bigot with a brain the size of a pea and the political savvy of a semi literate ant, she is suddenly being treated as a human being with a claim to be considered as a serious operator in the lead up to the 2012 election... Welcome to the club, guys, better late than never, as Wyatt Earp said to the Clanton brothers at the OK Corral…”
Tony Lee, at Human Events:
“To make inferences that this may be the prologue to an eventual presidential campaign would not be too far off base.”
Tom Rowan, at American Thinker:
“I am guessing Krauthammer's miserable failure as speechwriter for Walter Mondale has at least something to do with his ongoing campaign to delegitimize Palin... Perhaps this is where Krauthammer harvests his unseemly vitriol against Palin. While the nation yearns for the ‘next Reagan,’ Krauthammer seemingly yearns to seek and destroy any true blue Reaganite... Why is Krauthammer so unjustly dismissive of Palin's intellect? She displayed more knowledge of the Constitution than Joe Biden did during their debate. I cannot think of one single issue or ‘policy’ that Palin does not hold the same position that most thinking conservatives hold. On energy, taxation, and social and foreign policy matters, most conservative groups I speak to find her perspective of the political landscape a breath of fresh air. What is Krauthammer sniffing?”
