P.D.S.? No just a realist. Name one thing that she’s done that has had a real impact on people. Did she get any tax rates lowered? Did she get the government to stop spending more than they take in? The RINO establishment does not care a wit about what she does as running around giving “red meat” speeches doesn’t effect anything for them. Has she built up some real grass root effort anywhere? or did she hitch a ride on the Tea Party express (started by a rant by Rick Santelli on CNBC by the way). She is an opportunist nothing more and I see no evidence of her really try to build up a real political organization in like say her home state? Not sure what you guys see in her, other than she looks good, but it really is a waste of money supporting her.

“Your fear of Sarah shaking it up again is showing.”

Fear? No, if she actually “shakes things up” I’d be pleasantly surprised. But running around giving speeches isn’t “shaking things up”, it’s getting true small government minded politicians into office and $1.2M is a drop in the bucket compared to what is spent nationally on elections. This is really all about funding her, and not much else.

mccain chose her because of her religious credentials and nothing more. I regret voting for him. I should have known better after he rejected John Hagee’s endorsement. And in my oppinion, Sarah should have told mccain to stick it. But what did she do? She helped him get re-elected again.

By the way, has anyone heard from Romney lately?

What do you mean you’re not sure she can govern? Have a look at this and don’t tell me she can’t govern:


Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments that garnered her a whopping 92% approval rating:

Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship

*Governor Palin’s cornerstone accomplishment is AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palin’s governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and helps put us on the path to energy independence.

*Governor Palin’s administration opened up drilling for oil and natural gas at Pt. Thompson for the first time in decades.

*Governor Palin created the Alaska’s Petroleum Integrity Office to oversee all aspects of energy development and to make sure oilfield equipment was safe to operate and a Climate Change Subcabinet to comprehensively and honestly evaluate climate change.

Fiscal Conservatism

*Governor Palin reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration, requesting only earmarks that would benefit the country as a whole.

* Governor Palin reduced spending in her budget for Fiscal Year 2010 by more than one billion dollars from the previous governor’s Fiscal Year 2007 budget, a 9.5% real reduction in spending. Her FY2010 budget was $10.57 billion compared to Governor Murkowski’s FY2007 budget of nearly $11.7 billion. At the same time, she fulfilled her campaign promise to forward fund education, allowing districts greater flexibility and predictability in their planning.

*Governor Palin opposed much of the “stimulus”, wanting only to accept 55% of the money allocated to Alaska, specifically only dollars dedicated to infrastructure [projects. Although the Alaskan legislature ultimately overturned her veto, she stood firm on her commitment to help Alaska to become more self-sufficient while not adding to not add to the skyrocketing national debt.

* Governor Palin invested $5 billion in state savings.

Walking the Walk on Fiscal Responsibility

*Governor Palin sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor. She state it was an unnecessary financial burden on the state and was unable to land on many of the state’s landing strips.

* To cut costs that would be incurred by continuing to use a personal driver like previous governors, the governor drove herself from Wasilla to her office in Anchorage. She also dismissed the governor’s personal chef stationed in Juneau, Alaska’s capital.

* Governor Palin accepted less state per diem for herself and her family than her predecessors even though she had a larger family.

10th Amendment Advocacy/Promotion of State Constitution

*Showing that she is a strong supporter of the 10th amendment, Governor Palin advocated for the sovereignty of the state of Alaska.

*Governor Palin’s administration sued the federal government for placing the polar bear on the endangered species list, as this restriction affected energy development which would increase energy costs.

*A Constitutionalist, Governor Palin signed Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) bill into law. The Alaska constitution states that the Alaskan people own the oil and other resources. This law ensures that the “owners”, the people of Alaska, receive a clear and equitable share of oil profits.

National Defense/Veterans

*Governor Palin supported ground-based missile defense Ft Greely and other Alaskan Bases around to protect America from America’s enemies. She criticized the Obama administration for cuts that they made to this national defense system.

*Governor Palin, with Senators Murkowski and Begich, fought for retirement benefits from the federal government that were due to the Alaska Territorial Guard members who fought during World War II. These benefits were eventually rewarded to these veterans by the federal government.

* Governor Palin visited Alaskan soldiers in Kosovo and Kuwait.

Transparency/Anti-Corruption

*Governor Palin signed bipartisan ethics reform legislation into law that helped to hold both the legislative and executive branches accountable.

*Governor Palin put the state checkbook online, allowing all constituents to see how state money was being spent.

Health Care

*Governor Palin introduced health care transparency legislation which aimed at putting information in the hands of consumers about cost and quality of health care as a way to make health care consumer driven and accessible.

Sanctity and Dignity of All Life

* Governor Palin strongly supported both parental consent and parental notification legislation.

*Governor Palin increased educational funding for special needs’ children.

*Governor Palin implemented the Senior Benefits Program to support low income seniors.

Positions Held while Governor

* Chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.

*Vice Chair of the National Governors Association Natural Resource Committee.

* She served as chair of the Alaska Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s most valuable non-renewable resources: oil and gas. She was elected by her peers to serve as president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. In this role, she worked with local, state and federal officials to promote solutions to the needs of Alaska’s communities.

She exposed legal violations and conflicts of interest of Alaska Republican leaders, including the former state Attorney General and the State GOP Chairman (who was also an Oil & Gas Commissioner), who was doing work for the party on public time and supplying a lobbyist with a sensitive e-mail. Several went to jail.

Governor Palin signed several pieces of legislation and resolutions during July 2009. They were:

•SB-125: Encourage aerospace development in AK
•SB-177: Extend sunset for sport fishing guides and address harvest data collection
•Pro-energy development and missile defense resolutions

HJR-27: Alaska a Sovereign State
HJR-25: Hydro-Electric a Renewable Resource
HJR-28: Oppose Federal Restriction on Oil and Gas Development
HJR-12: Support Missile Defense System
•SB-88: Power cost equalization
•Defending Second Amendment rights.

SB-201: Extends Concealed Carry Permit Expiration to 5 Years from Birthday
HJR-17: Urges Congress not to pass HR-45.The federal legislation would put burdensome licensing and registration controls on individual gun owners.
SJR-10: Urges Congress to pass S-371. The legislation was to ensure that citizens of each state who are licensed or authorized by their home state to carry a concealed weapon, could do so in another state as long as they comply with the laws of that state.
SJR-3: The resolution expresses support to Congress for repealing the ban on carrying a firearm on National Park Service lands.
•SB-3 Requiring information sharing between two agencies.
•HRJ-19 Supports requirement of escort for loaded tankers traversing Prince William Sound.
•The Governor appointed 29 people to boards, commissions and councils and made three judicial appointments between July 6, 2009 and July 26, 2009.

Governor Palin’s total appointments for 2009 was123, including 116 to boards, commissions and councils, five judicial appointments, one legislative and one attorney general. Governor Palin averaged one appointment every 1.67 days during 2009.
•The Governor vetoed $28.6 million in stimulus money that would have involved federal interference with the state of Alaska.
Governor Palin signed bills removing experience caps on teacher’s salaries and extending boat safety programs.

Governor Palin signed legislation that gave struggling charter schools a one-year grace period to increase enrollments or integrate with other charter schools. She also signed legislation that authorizes Alaska “to enroll in the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children.”

Governor Palin signed legislation granting birth certificates for stillborn babies

Governor Palin signed legislation authorizing the state to fund retirement benefits for Alaska Territorial Guard veterans. The federal government ceased funding benefits on April 1, 2009

Governor Palin signed legislation safeguarding student loans

Sarah Palin was Commander of the Alaska National Guard. Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the first line of defense unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units in the United States. As governor of Alaska, Palin was briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism daily.

Governor Palin was the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security’s counterterrorism plans.

I think I'll try and raise that $2 million for her PAC then.

As a disabled former combat veteran now confined to my wheelchair and living on a VA disability and some meager savings I will do all that I can in the way of contributing some cash and time to helping Sarah.

But regarding this article I was much pleased to see that she is finally jettisoning the Fox quasi-conservative News network. FoxNEWS IMHO has finally evolved into nothing more that Mainstream Media Lite.

To beandog: Sorry to pop your hero worshiping bubble must be hard living in a fantasy world where people don’t have flaws, especially people asking for money from you to “shake up the GOP”

Coming from a BOY who lives in the fantasy land L.A.

Yeah well, good luck with your state's bankruptcy though, Sarah Palin could have turned that state around.

To ME: Now if you’d get back into the kitchen and let the men discuss this I think everyone would be happier.

LoLs! Not only is LA a Shallow, Republican, Misogynist, Left Leaning, PDS Troll.

He's quite gender confused because I am a MAN BABY!

Unlike you, I am not a afraid of strong women.

Like Sarah and the Gal FReepers who support her.

Beside all real men support Sarah Palin and DON'T call female FReepers Sexist names.

It is easy to ascribe less than noble motives to someone. Who can ever prove an opinion wrong?

It is far more difficult to suggest the activity that one would find acceptable as a pathway to greatness as a political leader. Of course, they need money, so it is always possible to say that they are only in it for the money.

Alas, I never see that kind of suggestion from anyone who spends all their energy tearing down others without offering positive suggestions for improvement.

None of us are perfect, and it is so easy to point that out, because one need not be perfect to do so.

The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if the establishment wouldn’t keep conservatives going around in circles by presenting a “conservative” who claims to want to change the Republican Party from within.

How many times has change from within been proposed? Okay, now how many times has it actually happened?

Face it: you’re not going to change the one party system. Our only hope is to break it with a new party.

Goldwater was a sucker for any military boondoggle that came along, especially any kind of aircraft, and we had some real dogs that got funded.

Salinger was a big Dem, but he wasn’t a liberal. He was for hard money, like Kennedy, and that was his downfall with the establishment. He knew where all the skeletons were too.

...she REALLY needs to get over the John McCain is great crap.

You haven't heard Sarah utter John McCain's name since the 2010 midterm elections when she gave him her endorsement.

That endorsement cost her dearly among some conservatives, but what was she to do? Refuse to endorse him, in fealty to the more purist amongst us? Had she done that, she would have (rightfully) been cast as an ungrateful wretch for the rest of her days.

She paid him back for launching her onto the national stage, and now doesn't owe him the time of day.

Well, I was in Jr High at the time anyway, I’m sure of that. Sept ‘57 - June ‘60. Passed the required U.S. Constitution test and graduated from the eighth grade in ‘59. Used to be you couldn’t graduate from the eighth grade without passing that test. It was a big deal at the time and we all studied hard and worried about passing. Had no idea back then that it would still be so serious to me 50 years later.
