Sarah Palin: Letís shake it up in California! (Sarah endorses Carly Fiorina - Huh?)
Facebook ^ | Sarah Palin

Posted on 05/06/2010 12:29:51 PM PDT by FightforFreedomCA

I’d like to tell you about a Commonsense Conservative running for office in California this year. She grew up in a modest home with a school teacher dad, worked her way through several colleges, and then entered an arena where few women had tread. Through a combination of hard work, perseverance, and common sense, she proved the naysayers wrong to reach the top of her field, where she led with distinction – facing hard truths, making tough decisions, and showing real leadership through a rocky transition period. Where others had failed, her company had weathered the storm and settled on a stronger new foundation.

Her name is Carly Fiorina, and I’m proud to endorse her for U.S. Senate.

Carly is the Commonsense Conservative that California needs and our country could sure use in these trying times. Most importantly, she’s running for the right reasons. She has an understanding that is sorely lacking in D.C. She’s not a career politician. She’s a businesswoman who has run a major corporation. She knows how to really incentivize job creation. Her fiscal conservatism is rooted in real life experience. She knows that when government grows, the private sector shrinks under the burden of debt and deficits. We can trust Carly to do the right thing for America’s economy and to make the principled decisions she has throughout her professional career.

Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat California’s liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November. I’m a huge proponent of contested primaries, so I’m glad to see the contest in California’s GOP, but I support Carly as she fights through a tough primary against a liberal member of the GOP who seems to bear almost no difference to Boxer, one of the most leftwing members of the Senate. Carly needs our support in this crucial election year when we have a real chance of putting an end to the Pelosi/Reid “Big Government” agenda.

I hope you’ll join me in supporting Carly. Visit her website here, and follow her on Facebook and Twitter. Read up on her positions and plans to help get us on the right track.

California is still Reagan Country, and Carly promises her “Reagan Conservative” values will be put to good use for her state and for our great nation. Shaking it up in California is long overdue. Let’s help Carly do it!

You know what I wish? I wish Sarah were more honest about why she does what she does, why she stands for what she stands for.

I think we know that deep down she is a classic conservative.

But what we are missing is any sort of honesty about her motivations.

What I’d like to see is an explanation of why she picked Fiorina rather than DeVore. Why can’t she be honest and say something like “We need a Boxer-free Senate. I am endorsing the candidate that has the BEST chance of beating Boxer. I wish I could choose the most conservative candidate in the race, but I believe in small steps toward victory, not in going down with the ship. We can’t die on every hill. While we do not wish for RINOs in public office, we need to choose our battles in each individual race, and no one is perfect. Carly has ... bla bla bla...”

Wouldn’t that be more satisfying? Sarah, are you listening?? If you can’t be honest, what else is there?

“You in your infinite wisdom have determined that the state must be leftist because Conservatives don’t win elections here.”

No genius, I know that your state is leftist because of the people that run it and the people that represent it. Someone is voting for them I assume. My state is in the same boat thanks in no small part to refugees from yours moving here and bringing their leftist politics with them.

This is the type of person Sarah Palin admires:

May 2, 2010
Fiorina said that one of the senators she admires most is Sen. Dianne Feinstein (and John McCain):

"Sen. Feinstein has been a fine senator for the state of California, and has accomplished a great deal. I would describe her as a pragmatic problem-solver. I admire her, I respect her. I like her. I think and I hope she would say the same about me."

People like McCain always say they are pro life to get elected. Why? Because they know nothing will be done to change Roe vs Wade. Thats why.

I absolutely agree...

Those who say, “Well, at least a RINO is better than a Democrat... not necessarily! They are called, “RINO -Republican In Name Only,” for a reason... in most cases, they vote right along with the Democrats.

So I disagree with Sarah’s endorsement of Fiorina, who is another RINO that has recently said Arizona’s immigration law carries a racist tone.

If conservatives spent the next 4 weeks donating to DeVore and volunteering for him, then Chuck can win.

Fine, let's do it then, sounds easy as punch.

Meg Whitman isn’t running for Senate. That arrogant idiot woman is running for Governor. I despise her with each new ad. I am not sure we should even HAVE an election for governor: Ahnold, Meg, or Moonbeam are nearly equally atrocious for a state in serious trouble. I hope Poizner has a shot because we Californians are doomed.

A new update from Sarah regarding her endorsement..

Update: I’d like to add a few things about my Carly endorsement because some reaction right out of the chute calls for more information:

Carly has been endorsed by the National Right to Life, the California Pro-Life Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List. She is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-military, and pro-strict border security and against amnesty. She is against Obamacare and will vote to repeal it and prevent the government takeover of private companies and industries. Carly is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Like me, she is a member of the NRA, has a 100% NRA rating, and she and her husband are gun owners. She is pro-energy development and believes as I do in an all-of-the-above approach to energy independence. She is against cap and tax. And most importantly, Carly is the only conservative in the race who can beat Barbara Boxer. That’s no RINO. That’s a winner.

Quick google shows an April 22 poll for KABC-TV: Campbell with 34 percent, Fiorina with 27 percent, DeVore with 14. I only pulled up this one poll. I’m sure there are more, and I cant attest to the reliability, so fwiw.

You're missing the point, se_ohio,

Ron Paul and Jim DeMint are the ONLY REAL Conservatives in the whole world.

Everyone else is a RINO.

Remember their version of Reagan's famous quote:

Capitol Weekly 4/22/10 gave Campbell a huge lead:

“In the Senate race, former Congressman Tom Campbell was favored by 31 percent of respondents. Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina was next with 17 percent, followed by Assemblyman Chuck DeVore at 14 percent. More than 37 percent of those surveyed said they were still undecided.”

hmmmm.....Palin said right in her post that she believes Carly to be the only Republican candidate who can beat Boxer, and Boxer MUST GO. DeVore is a great guy but he’s polling 13% of the vote. It’s down to Carly and Campbell. Carly has also been endorsed by the RTL, NRA (100% rating) and the SBA List.

Let’s see if you can figure out which of these candidates is more likely to win. I’ll try to make it real simple for you. If it’s too hard, you just send off another dim-witted reply certain to offend.

Seeking the office of Governor of California

Dem: Over $10 million dollar war chest
Rep: A little over $2 million dollar war chest

Dem: Flies across the state in a private jet.
Rep: Leases a charter bus for the duration of the campaign.

Dem: Former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Current President, Current Vice-President, current and former Senators, Congressmen, Federal officials, a myriad of state and local officials, a bevy of top named entertainment industry actors and financial gurus show up for five to seven day long swings through the state.
Rep: No former or current presidents or vice-presidents, senators, congressmen, or federal office holders. Perhaps if he’s lucky one minor named Congressman from his own state shows up for one swing through the state. One or two radio or television personalities show up.

Dem: Countless top notch production level spots are aired for months on end on television and radio throughout the state. A number of television programs bring on the candidate “because the public needs and wants to see him”.
Rep: A few spots are aired a week or two out from the election. There are no televised appearances, because the public “doesn’t want to see this guy and they don’t need to.”

Dem: Unions, ACORN, Teachers, Schools, up their game on propaganda and efforts to get the candidate elected.
Rep: Individuals on their own money try to help the candidate any way they can.

Do you have any idea who wins this election?

Do you know how much the spread is?

I mean if your logic is sound, none of this makes any difference whatsoever. If Californians are simply leftist, then none of this would make any difference.

That has seemed to be your learned judgment on this matter.

The fact is, Pete Simon lost an election just like this to Gray Davis. These were the dynamics.

Simon wasn’t what I would call Mr. Charisma. None the less, he did have a pretty good values set. And he did garner a significant portion of the vote, with a severe handicap.

You think it’s, “Californians are leftists” in a nutshell.

The reality is it’s, “Conservative candidates are cast adrift in California”, in a nutshell.

If you have ten million iPads for sale, and only ten people hear about it, and only two of them get a full explanation about what one is, you’re not going to sell them.

It’s no different in politics.

I also did not like her backing McCain. I hate to say it - but I wonder if she is trying for political suicide with the conservatives.
