More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 348

“Lift Me Up” Edition

Jen Kuznicki:
“After reading this facebook note by Sarah Palin, I can envision a campaign for President that is upbeat and positive. The thing we are missing in politics lately is positive energy. It is so easy to get bogged down on what is going wrong, but this note both acknowledges the bad and reminds us of who we are... Palin said all of this in the note, that we are the best and the brightest, we are attentive, innovative, intelligent, and we know that we must defend America and bring it back from the brink. A Palin candidacy, with positive energy, would capture the hearts and minds of Americans, pick them up out of their doldrums and activate our passion for our country, our future, and our way of life. Run, Sarah, Run!”
Weasel Meister, at Weasel Zippers:
“A splash of cold water on a hot summer day.”
Andrew Malcolm, at Top of the Ticket:
“Palin dismissed accounting gimmicks and fake cuts in the ‘out-years’ as ‘Enron-like accounting games’ favored by the ‘permanent political class in D.C.’ She also called for Obama to cease his White House ‘happy talk’ about ‘investing in solar shingles and really fast trains.’ She urged her followers to get engaged in 2012 electoral politics and support ‘experienced vetted, pro-free market fiscal conservatives.’... Her statement came out as President Obama headed for the first of two high-dollar Democratic fundraisers in Washington...”
Joshua Green, a senior editor at left wing The Atlantic, via Twitter:
“FYI, Moody's raised Alaska's credit rating to AAA largely due to fiscal improvement under ...”
Whitney Pitcher, at Little Blog on the Prairie:
“Governor Palin was a frugal budgeter as the Governor of Alaska. During her tenure, she cut spending 9.5% while also vetoing nearly half a billion dollars in spending. She did this during strong economic times. It should be noted that in addition to the traditional budget and capital budget that states are responsible for implementing, state governors are also responsible for managing their state debts and liabilities. These are often tied to bonds (both state and municipal) and state worker pensions and the like... Compared to all other candidates and potential candidates, Governor Palin increased the debt at a much slower rate and reduced total liabilities at a much higher rate than any of her fellow governors.”
Jim Campbell, at We the People:
“Why Sarah Palin would make an outstanding president...”
Bill Hughes, at New Jersey for Sarah Palin:
“New Jersey is about as blue as you can get politically... Palin's weakest area of the country should be the northeast given her ideology. And yet, she maintains the same favorability rating as Mitt Romney, who is not only ideologically better suited for blue New Jersey, but also hails from this region of the country. She has a higher rating than Bachmann, Cain and Pawlenty, all of which have been campaigning for some time... Governor Palin has a real shot at winning the New Jersey GOP primary. A victory here would virtually ensure that Palin is the GOP nominee to face off against Barack Obama in November.”
Vassar Bushmills, at Unified Patriots:
“Why does Sarah Palin sound like a Leader, and Michelle Bachmann doesn’t?”
Walter Hickey, at Open Secrets blog:
“Former governors Tim Pawlenty and Sarah Palin, along with Romney, have made far more donations in support of their political brethren than the other GOP presidential candidates... Palin, an undeclared but potential presidential contender, was the runner up when it came to gross donations, contributing $466,500 to 95 campaigns via her leadership PAC, which is called SarahPAC... Palin’s SarahPAC accounted for 28 percent of the money donated by presidential hopefuls, and she was also the top donor to 27 percent of all campaigns, compared to all her presidential rivals... Palin even out-spent Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) on his son Rand Paul’s successful U.S. Senate campaign in Kentucky. Palin’s leadership PAC donated $7,000 to the younger Paul, while the elder Paul’s leadership PAC donated $4,720.”
Michael O'Brien, at The Hill's Blog Briefing Room:
“Palin distributed $65,000 to candidates during the first half of this year... The contributions were unsolicited and unheralded, according to the lawmakers who received the donations and their campaign committees.”
AWR Hawkins, at Big Journalism:
“While speaking at the Washington Area Community Center’s Lessons for Leaders (Washington, IL) on August 6, Coach Mike Ditka lambasted the mainstream media (MSM) and heaped praise on Gov. Sarah Palin... Ditka has offered up a strong defense of Palin before... Of course, I don’t recall hearing Chris Matthews, Matt Lauer, or anyone in the MSM mention Ditka’s kind words for the Governor in 2010 (nor do I remember them making fun of him for being a Republican)... Come to think of it, I don’t recall hearing them talk about Ditka’s kind words for Palin on the campaign trail in 2008 either. (I’ve got a feeling Matthews, Lauer, and Olbermann would rather pick fights with people who don’t fight back, and they all know Ditka isn’t the type to just shut up and take it. That’s why they fear him and that’s why we love him.) That’s also why we love Palin.”
Coach Ditka, via the Peoria Journal Star:
“I understand Sarah Palin spoke here last year. I admire her. She's a great lady, mother and wife, and that's more important than the (expletive) the media spreads about her.”
The Associated Press, via WOAI-TV:
“Two Fox News analysts say that their comments about going easy on fellow Fox employee Sarah Palin were a joke. Fox's Greg Gutfeld and Bob Beckel both say they weren't serious when discussing Palin on Wednesday's edition of The Talk, the network's summer replacement for Glenn Beck... The only on-air suggestion it was a joke came when Beckel followed up his comment by criticizing Palin for taking on critics of the tea party. Beckel says that nobody at Fox had ever asked him to go easy on anyone, adding that ‘I'd punch them out if they did.’”
DivaCindy, at Gossip Divaz:
“Considering that Mercede Johnston’s whole career is based on the fact that her brother had a baby with Bristol Palin, I find this vomit-spewing Playboy interview disgusting.”
Patrick S. Adams, at Liberty's Lamp:
“American history has shown us glaring examples of how unbridled conservatism has always been the antidote for the statist sickness whenever it befalls our nation. Ronald Reagan gave us the blue print the last time this happened. Sarah Palin knows that blueprint. There is a sense of faith that our future is bright despite the current indicators. Sarah Palin's words continue to burn bright. ‘With hope and dedication nothing is impossible, and the Almighty never abandons those who seek the light.’ It may seem the darkest its ever been. It may look to be the lowest we've ever fallen domestically. But if you look off into the distance, the light does look brighter. Sarah Palin can bring us to that light. Her lamp of liberty guides our steps.”
Exit Quote - Ronald Wilson Reagan, in his Second Inaugural Address, Jan. 21, 1985:
“We are creating a nation once again vibrant, robust, and alive. There are many mountains yet to climb. We will not rest until every American enjoys the fullness of freedom, dignity, and opportunity as our birthright. It is our birthright as citizens of this great republic.”
