More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 391

“It's Not Over” Edition

Conservative Pup:
“‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.’ – Jeremiah 29:11... I have admired, respected, and been inspired by Gov. Palin for over three years. Since the first day I heard her speak, when McCain introduced her that August day, I have known, down in my bones, that she was “the real deal.” That hasn’t changed. Sarah Palin is the ‘real deal,’ a genuine America-loving citizen who has a special gift for sharing that love and stirring in the hearts of millions of her fellow citizens a passion and determination to restore our country to her founding principles. I profoundly thank her for that, and for all she has done for the purpose of restoring America. And it’s not over. Not by a long shot.”
Stephen Bannon, via Variety:
“"She was very straightforward. She told people that her decision would be through consultation with her family and through prayer. That is what she did, and she made the decision that this was not the time for her.”
Madeline McAulay, at Faith, Hope and Politics:
“If people would put themselves in Governor Palin’s shoes, and look through the eyes her family, there is no way they can truly be angry. Everyone grew to love the Palin’s in 2008, but we also remember the disgusting things that were not only thrown at her, but also at her children. I do not blame any of them for not wanting to go through that again, at least at this time. One thing is for certain, Governor Palin is not going anywhere. She will have a huge impact on the upcoming elections, and she will continue to be a voice for Conservatives. I trust the Governor, and her decision, and I know that God has a perfect and divine plan that will be even greater than anyone can imagine.”
Dan Riehl, at Riehl World View:
“It amazes me to see how many silly people there are on the Right who fail to appreciate Palin's significance in bringing in new people, faces and energy to our efforts these last few years... She remains an asset and only fools and asses squander or seek to undermine political assets, especially in political times such as these.”
Mark Whittington, at Associated Content:
“Reports of Sarah Palin's political demise have been greatly exaggerated... It is clear that Palin's endorsement is one of the most valued commodities in American politics in this election cycle. A great many people are in elected office because of her support during the 2010 election cycle. It is possible that the next president of the United States could owe his presidency to a well timed word from the lady from Wasilla... Endorsements often come with a price. For Palin it may not be something as blatant as an office or a place on the ticket. It might well be a pledge to advance the agenda that Palin and her followers care about. If that kind of quid pro quo happens, she will become the gray eminence of American politics, albeit not in the holy orders. ”
Terry Jeffrey, at NRO Symposium:
“The 2012 election may not be Sarah Palin’s Agincourt, but as with the young Prince Hal who became the fearsome Henry V, we are seeing the emergence of a leader who will someday crush the fools who arrogantly underestimated her.”
Gary P Jackson, at A Time For Choosing:
“Sarah Palin has said she will continue the fight, and I will stand with her and anyone else who wants to fight this fight. Immediately after her announcement, she released a new video... that says she’s not going anywhere. Knowing how she has no problem going after the bad guys in either party, she could be quite dangerous to the Ruling Class. Good! We are in the fight for the very survival of our nation. Now is not the time to sit back and be sad Sarah won’t be our next President... Now is the time to move forward. Again, I trust that whatever Sarah has up her sleeve is important and will bring results.”
Patrick S. Adams, at Patrick's World USA:
“There is no better way to stick it to the scumbags who messed with her and her family than to walk off with a wad of cash and an army of devoted followers over two million strong. Good for her.”
Henry D'Andrea, at Washington Times Communities:
“Palin’s message has always been ‘country first.’ She put the country ahead of self by sitting this election out. It would be a lie to say I am not disappointed that she isn’t running, but I fully stand behind her decision. In this coming, crucial election, Palin will hit the campaign trail for many governors, senators, congressmen, etc., who are actively working to restore America. In the historical 2010 mid-term election, Palin endorsed several candidates across the United States: Over 70% of them won their races. She will be decisive in the next election. Her message of conservatism and a simpler, smaller, smarter government resonates with the American people. To Palin’s supporters: Do not let the governor’s decision demoralize you. It is not time to pack up and go home, it is time to unite and fight to stop the Obama agenda. Governor Palin, we thank you for your selfless fight for commonsense, conservative solutions for the United States of America. I still believe that one day I’ll have the honor of calling you ‘President Sarah Palin.’ This is a crucial time for America and Sarah Palin isn’t retreating, she’s just reloading.”
John Hitchcock, at Truth Before Dishonor:
“Sarah Palin has not given up the stage. She is definitely going to keep up the fight, and as a result, the candidates for office — Presidential and below — will have to respond to the TEA Party and Palin campaigns to take the US back to its roots of Freedom and Liberty.”
Kempite, at White House 2012:
“Palin’s lack of political ambition is what attracts most people to her. They understand that her opinions and words are not driven by the political motives which are usually behind the words and policies of your average politician. That understanding and the enormous number of people who support Palin for her ability to articulate what they feel and think, and her desire to be honest and blunt about those sentiments, is the same understanding which gave birth to the TEA movement. That is why for many, the two go hand in hand. It is why Palin is a darling of the TEA movement. It is also why Palin’s decision not to run is likely to have as much of an effect on who will be the next Republican nominee, as she would have had if she decided to run for the nomination herself.”
David Riddick, at The Aged P:
“Who knows what surprises the future might bring for Sarah Palin or her supporters. Only time will tell. As for her enemies they should savour the moment while they can for some time in the future fate will surely deliver their come uppance…”
Ron Devito, at US for Palin:
“Judgment and discernment by definition cannot be programmed. You see, some qualities are completely apolitical and cannot be mechanized. Few people possess even one of them, much less all of them. These qualities are: integrity; leadership by example; keeping promises; executive experience; command experience; life experience; judgment; the right combination of toughness and sweetness; accomplishments; fortitude; the ability to keep confidences; a proven and vetted track record of success; a proven ability to withstand media scrutiny; people person; and impeccable character that inspires confidence and commands respect. Add to that list: proving to the world that a woman can do anything a man can do – and in many cases, do it better. These qualities are about the person and Gov. Palin possesses every last one of them. That’s what makes her the kind of leader you see only once in 75 – 150 years.”
Roderic Deane:
“We need to trust Sarah now, as we have in the past. I have no doubt that she’s got some plans up her sleeve that will make us all proud.”
Kathryn Jean Lopez, at National Review Online:
“Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin recently said something both profound and essential. As she was nearing her decision not to launch a presidential campaign — appearing to discern what role she could best play in national affairs, and perhaps preparing to let her most ardent supporters down easy — she asked Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, ‘Is a title worth it? Does a title shackle a person?’ She continued: ‘Does a title take away my freedom to call it like I see it and to affect positive change that we need in this country? That’s the biggest contemplation piece in my process.’ Such questions could be interpreted as indicative of a dismaying attitude toward public service. But they may also demonstrate an admirable self-awareness, and a keen appreciation of the different ways one might play a role in public life.”
