More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 392

“Reconsider” Edition

Anonymous, via Palin Defender:
“Dear Sarah... I am sure that you are aware of an online movement on Facebook called ‘Sarah Palin’s Earthquake.’ It is a gathering of thousands of like-minded supporters—like me—who are not idol worshiping, but have studied your record and accomplishments and know that you are the right person for the job. In short, we want you to reconsider. If you decline, please know that the majority of us understand, and we will continue to support you and your quest to re-take the Senate and save the House in 2012.”
Anthony James, at Tea Party Tribune:
“We will be Sarah Palin’s ‘Earthquake.’”
Patrick S. Adams, at Patrick's World USA:
“I didn't join the Palin army for the warm fuzzies. I didn't join the Palin army because I wanted to be in a fan club or because I wanted to join a social group. I joined the Palin army because I thought she represented exactly what America needed at a time when it needed it most... We will never have another Ronald Reagan. But, someday we will have another great one, whether its Palin or someone else. I just hope to be alive to see it, and I hope there is still an America left for them to lead.”
Mark America:
“That the GOP establishment seems to have managed to pull off another end-run around us is not Sarah Palin’s fault, but ours.”
Gary P Jackson, at A Time For Choosing:
“One thing Sarah has never stopped doing is fighting. Sarah has been the only real living voice of conservatism since she took to that convention stage in 2008. Better still, Sarah has put skin in the game. She’s put principle over power, and worried more about advancing conservatism than advancing her own political career... It’s hard for a lot of people to let that go. To accept the best possible choice for America has decided not to run. There’s even a move to draft her. To cause that ‘earthquake’ she said it would take to get her to reconsider. To be honest, as tempting as it sounds, folks would be better off focusing their energy on the new mission. Sarah has said she’s not going anywhere. That she is going to take on corruption in both parties, continue to push the conservative message, and fight to not only take back the Senate but increase our numbers in the House, by helping elect sold conservatives. Men and women of principle. Of substance. Sarah has inspired millions, it would be sad to see all of that energy wasted. In 2010 Sarah had an unbelievable record of picking winning candidates and endorsing them. Look for 2012 to be even stronger, as long as we keep our eyes on the mission.”
William A. Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection:
“Looking at all the non-Romney candidates last night, I kept thinking, ‘Miss her yet?’”
M. Joseph Sheppard, at A Point Of View:
“There is no question that Newt Gingrich is in the ascendency... For Gingrich to not only continue his rise, but to break away from the pack and actually take the lead, there is one sentence he can say which would not only give him the lead, the nomination and, given the predicted state of the economy next year, the presidency in 2012: ‘If I am elected president I will offer the post of Secretary of Energy to Sarah Palin.’ This statement, especially if Palin responds positively, or even guardedly -- as long as she didn't reject it outright, could bring the support of the millions of Palin's Facebook followers, the activists and the financial backers.”
Newt Gingrich, during the Dartmouth Debate:
“I think, candidly, Governor Palin got attacked unfairly for describing what would, in effect, be death panels.”
Sherisse Pham, at ABC News' The Note:
“Rick Santorum‘s bid for the Republican presidential nomination is not going well. While rivals such as Rep. Michele Bachmann, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and now businessman Herman Cain enjoy bursts of popularity, the former Pennsylvania senator can’t seem to get his campaign out of the gate. Endorsements from leading Republicans – say, Sarah Palin - would certainly help. ‘Her being out of the race and potentially getting involved in a campaign with somebody else could be a big lift,’ Santorum said on ABC’s ‘Top Line.’ ‘We’d like your endorsement by the way,’ he joked, staring straight to the camera.”
Herman Cain, to The Daily Caller:
“I believe that I would be a natural choice for many of the Sarah Palin supporters simply because Sarah Palin and I share very similar views.”
John Smithson, at Meet Sarah Palin:
“Huntsman criticizes Palin. My question: who cares? The leftist Mediaite ran a story a couple of days ago on Jon Huntsman, past governor of Utah, criticizing Sarah Palin for dragging out her decision on running for the presidency... Huntsman really does not understand the current climate within the GOP or he would excuse himself from the race altogether. Nice guy, but he does not have one chance in 700 hells of getting the GOP nomination, and we all know this. His influence within the GOP is so lacking that one wonders why he continues his campaign or takes the time to criticize anyone within the party. This is similar to Norm Newhollander criticizing the GOP. Don't know who Norm Newhollander is? Exactly.”
Ian Lazaran, at Conservatives 4 Palin:
“These three polls are screaming for either Palin or Huckabee to reconsider.”
Tammy Bruce, at
“Every candidate in the GOP field now fails on Palin’s points... Gov. Palin has painted herself into a very difficult principled corner — her own standards make endorsing in this current field at the very least uncomfortable, and at worst she’s at risk of appearing hypocritical... Whatever individual Palinistas decide when it comes to ‘What now?’ they will make the difference in this imperative political season. With the tea party, we have seen emerge the most important conservative movement since the Reagan Revolution, and if there ever was a time for authentic conservatives to take back this nation and the Republican Party, it is now. For those who thought Gov. Palin’s supporters would fade away if Palin did not run, they’ll find the folly in that sooner than later.”, South Korean news site:
“Na Kyung-won, the ruling Grand National Party’s candidate for Seoul mayor, has a few things in common with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin... Both are prominent female politicians in their countries and are raising a child with Down Syndrome. Na met Palin Tuesday on the sidelines of the World Knowledge Forum...”
Mark Whittington, at Yahoo! News:
“Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin may not be running for president, but she is still playing the role of a world stateswoman. She had some things to say about East Asia at the World Knowledge Forum 2011 sponsored by the Maeil Business Newspaper in Seoul. According to the Wall Street Journal, she touched on themes of smaller government and the dangers of a large national debt. This is affecting America's ability to project power in the world, which is a dangerous thing. She also touched on the rise of China as a military power, the current dispute over the Spratly Islands and the need for regime change in North Korea. One of the calumnies directed against Palin is that she had allegedly not studied the issues or traveled very much abroad. This is a calumny because it is not true. Palin has been to India, Israel and Hong Kong in the last several years and has impressed the locals at every stop with her command of the issues facing Asia and the Middle East... In her Seoul speech, Palin opined that there will be a woman president someday in America, and she looks forward to that day. This is a bittersweet reminder to her admirers who also look forward to that day and have already put a name and face on that future chief executive.”
Exit Quote - Marshall McLuhan, in The Medium is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects:
“The medium, or process, of our time - electric technology - is reshaping and restructuring patterns of social interdependence and every aspect of our personal life. It is forcing us to reconsider and re-evaluate practically every thought, every action, and every institution formerly taken for granted.”
