More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 381

“Help is on Its Way” Edition

Patrick S. Adams, at Liberty's Lamp:
“We may be near economic death, both individually... and as a nation... But with Palin, support is hardcore and entrenched. Her army is stout with informed activists who can help any doubter borrow their confidence. If Americans can believe that she is the dawn we are looking for, we can capture that same spirit that Ronald Reagan captured. It is with that spirit that a downtrodden and economically abused electorate can find its way back to the shining city on a hill. Just as Sarah Palin undid the influence of cronyism in big oil in Alaskan politics, so can she undo the influence of cronyism in American politics. Enforcing laws that protect the rights, property and persons of citizens is the appropriate role of government. Micro-managing businesses and regulating lemonade stands is not... Knowing that Sarah Palin can deliver on this should encourage the business community and all Americans that help is on the way. While we suffer over the next year or so, at least we can suffer knowing that someday the pain will be over and the light will shine brightly again on our blessed nation.”
Amby Burfoot, at Runner's World :
“I don't know about you, but I figure Sarah Palin is getting ready to run a fall marathon.”
Steven Thomma, of McClatchy Newspapers:
“Look out President Barack Obama. Even Sarah Palin's gaining on you. A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds that Obama looks increasingly vulnerable in next year's election, with a majority of voters believing he'll lose to any Republican, a solid plurality saying they'll definitely vote against him and most potential Republican challengers gaining on him. Even in potential match ups where he leads, Obama in most cases has lost ground to the Republican. The biggest gain came for Palin, the former Alaska governor who hasn't yet announced whether she'll jump into the fast-changing race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. After trailing Obama by more than 20 percentage points in polls all year, the new national survey, taken Sept. 13-14, found Palin trailing the president by just 5 points, 49-44 percent. The key reason: She now leads Obama among independents, a sharp turnaround.”
Doug Powers, at
“If Palin keeps trending like this, Joe McGinniss might want to rent the place next door to the White House just in case.”
Allahpundit, at Hot Air:
“Oh my: Palin within five of Obama in new Marist poll... Might be the best poll she’s had since the ’08 election... Some of what’s going on here, obviously, is utter public exhaustion with Hopenchange and Obamanomics. If I were David Plouffe, that 49/36 split on voters who say they’ll definitely vote against The One would make me wet myself. But some of it’s specific to Palin too: Look no further than the fact that she now fares better against Obama than Perry does — and actually leads him among independents.”
John Nolte, via Twitter:
“And lo, a poll was posted on the Drudge, and the gnashing of #GOPSmartSet teeth was heard throughout the land...”
Corbett B. Daly , at CBS News' Political Hotsheet:
“Sarah Palin has not officially declared whether she will jump in the race for president. A new poll may give her one more reason to take the plunge. She is just five points behind President Obama in the survey released Tuesday by Marist College and McClatchy Newspapers. The Fox News analyst garnered 44 percent in the poll, compared to Mr. Obama's 49 percent. That's a sharp increase for Palin, who had been consistently running about 20 points behind Mr. Obama. A key reason for her gain is stronger support among independents, who favor the one-time vice presidential nominee to the sitting president, the newspaper said. Mr. Obama's approval rating fell to 39 percent, the lowest level of his presidency, and his disapproval rating rose to 52 percent. That is the first time a majority of registered voters said they disapprove of Mr. Obama.”
Don Surber, at the Charleston Daily Mail:
“I am not saying Sarah Palin will be the nominee. I am saying the country is more conservative today than it was 3 years ago.”
Basil, at IMAO:
“Now watch the left get their panties in a wad. Because Sarah Palin polls at 44% in a matchup with Barack Obama. That’s according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll. What does the new poll mean? Depends on who you ask. If you ask me — you did ask me, didn’t you? — it means that almost as many people hate Barack Obama as hate Sarah Palin. Now, I can’t tell you why they hate Sarah Palin. They can’t either. Ask them, and they go, ‘Palin!!! Arrggghhh!! She’s … (spit) … (slobber) … (mumble) … and Dan Quayle in a skirt!’ Or something like that. They’ve been programmed to hate her. So they do. What else it means is that the programming isn’t taking. Remember all that ‘Bush is evil’ programming that people were spewing a while back. It’s calmed down among most. Oh, sure, some still blame Bush for the economy, 9/11, and Pearl Harbor. Because stupid people have a way of living way too long and not shutting the hell up. But the ‘Gosh, I sure miss George Bush’ sentiment is growing... Palin is no George W. Bush, but the ‘Hate Palin’ programming is starting to wear off.”
Rick Rice, at Wizbang:
“You can almost hear the veins popping in necks across the country this morning as the Palin haters stroke out over this news. The spewing begins in 3, 2, 1…”
John Hitchcock, at Common Sense Political Thought:
“Reagan trailed Carter by 25 points 8 months before the election. And the mainstream media and Democrats and Republican establishment wanted a more squishy Republican candidate to run against Carter, claiming Reagan was unelectable and too extremist. We are still more than 13 months away, and mainstream media and Democrats and Republican establishment want a more squishy Republican candidate to run against Obama, claiming Palin is unelectable and too extremist... As more and more of the announced Republican candidates get vetted, people are finding they have issues and are taking another look at Palin. The Democrats and mainstream media (but I repeat myself) and Republican establishment have been going after her tooth and nail, with the Democrats and mainstream media using all manner of smear tactics, since 2008. Their ammo pouch is basically empty. Absolute nutball fringe Left (Andrew Sullivan, Joe McGinniss, Daily Kos, Keith Olbermann, etc) have been constantly over-playing the ‘attack Palin’ card, and it’s starting to backfire on them.”
John Hinderaker, at Power Line:
“Shock Poll? That is how Drudge is headlining this McClatchy-Marist survey which finds support for President Obama evaporating, so that ‘even’ Sarah Palin trails him by only five points, 49-44. I would say that if there is a shock, it is that Obama – an awful president who acts as though he barely cares – can lead any Republican contender.”
Joel B. Pollak, at Big Journalism:
“Joe McGinniss, author of a controversial new biography of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, was charged in connection with a hit-and-run accident in Wasilla, Alaska in July 2010, police and court records show. McGinniss had moved to Wasilla in the spring of 2010 to work on his book, and rented the house next door to the Palin family, prompting Palin and her husband to erect a higher fence to protect their children’s privacy. On July 12, 2010, at about 2 p.m., McGinniss was allegedly driving an overdue rental car when he collided with an unoccupied vehicle parked near Kaladi Brothers, a popular local coffee shop, causing minor but ‘disabling’ damage, according to the collision report... According to an affidavit by police officer Daniel M. Bennett, McGinniss failed to report the accident, and left the scene, but not before a bystander recorded his license plate and left a note for the owner of the parked vehicle. When Bennett arrived to investigate, he discovered McGinniss’s vehicle nearby, and notified the rental car company, which impounded the vehicle and brought it back to Anchorage, roughly 30 miles away. Two hours after the collision occurred, McGinniss called the police–not to report the accident, but to report that his rental car had been stolen.”
Bob Belvedere, at The Camp Of The Saints:
“I have no respect for a man who can’t admit his mistakes.”
Mark America:
“I’ve concluded that there is a real problem in our culture, and among many Republican men particularly, there is now a surrender of the values we once shared, and it is expressed in a general cowardice to be seen when conservative women come under sexist, vulgar attacks. It’s not that conservative women in politics can’t defend themselves, but when allegedly conservative outlets begin to act like the worst leftist purveyors of filth, one begins to wonder about the character of people who claim merely to be reporting the news. Frankly, it makes me sick, and it makes me angry... Carlson, in all honesty, after your publication ran with the post it did, and Beck, after GBTV’s ridiculous ‘joke’ of Thursday, and yeah, you too Rizzuto, I don’t know what any of you could possibly believe you have to offer to a civil discussion about any subject after this. You’re all embarrassments to manhood.”
Exit Quote - Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, from a Bluegrass Gospel song by Michael Reed:
“Just hold on a little longer
Help is on the way
A brighter day is coming
For those who believe and pray
Help won't help tomorrow
If you give up today
Just hold on a little longer
Help is on the way”
