“Miss Her Yet?” Debate Retweet of the Night

“Miss Her Yet?” Debate Retweet of the Night

Looking at all the non-Romney candidates last night, I kept thinking, “Miss her yet?”  (Note:  If someone could do the graphic, I’d love to post it.)

Particularly after this question and answer:

TUMULTY: Congressman Gingrich — Speaker Gingrich, Medicare is going broke.  Consider the fact that half of all Medicare spending is done in the last two years of life….

Do you consider this wasteful spending? And, if so, should the government do anything about it?

GINGRICH: I am really glad you asked that, because I was just swapping e-mails today with Andy von Eschenbach, who was the head of the National Cancer Institute, the head of the Food & Drug Administration …. So, if you ask me, do I want some Washington bureaucrat to create a class action decision which affects every American’s last two years of life, not ever.

I think it is a disaster. I think, candidly, Governor Palin got attacked unfairly for describing what would, in effect, be death panels….

Which led to the Retweet of the Night:

I miss her. I do not yet see another realistic conservative reformer candidate, unless it is Newt himself.

Woo-hoo! 🙂

If I had any graphics talent, I’d make a poster in a heartbeat. Ideologically I’m most attuned to Perry among the candidates, but there’s no one who excites me. Palin I think caught the populist (the good kind) mood of the country best.

All those primary voters who were holding out for Palin to announce are now up for grabs. I think Newt found an excellent way to reach out to them.

I do miss her. To be fair to Newt he was always quite measured in his remarks about SP and a gentleman (something that is sorely lacking among the political class). Starting to look better with each passing day. I’m a fiscal conservative but as for the social aspect… I’m of the “that’s his private matter” just like what I do in my relationship is my concern and I don’t pretend to judge anyone or hold them to a different standard because they are running for office.

I just took a look at some of the threads in different blogs and there are a lot of comments about giving Newt a second look. There’s even a poll posted prominently at HA showing him in third place after Cain and Romney… interesting. He seems to be creeping up on the front runners percentage point after percentage point.

Easy to defend her now. Time now to fall all over the supporters previously dismissed as cultists?

Well it certainly is flatter than flat. I was away & when I return it is decidedly more despondent. With SP gone -there is no one to attack . Both Democrats & Republicans have no boogie person .

Their dreams of seeking out SP’s 17 immediate relatives & hurling whore insults over back fences , across school yards , at toddler speech therapy sessions , creches & spoiling the fun of mechanical bull riders are over. What about the man who smashed his tv when Bristol nixed a DWTS elimination ? What will he do now? What about posters who spend 21 hours at Hotair denigrating Palin ?

Their dreams are over.

The media is a little confused as to who to go after right now. Never fear though. They will dump on any republican who rasies he/her head above the others with all four feet and vilify them to the max. And heaven help the actual nominee. He/she will be accused of nothing short of raosting babies alive. That is one of the reasons I liked Palin. They had already done all that and the public by this time should be ignoring their lies about her. Maybe not though. If the electorate is dumb enough to vote for a guy who has no paper trail then they deserve what they get. Unfortunately they are taking us down the tube along with themselves. The republicans who did not support Palin or fell for the media hype that she is dumb should realize that in the eyes of the media all republicans are dumb. That has been their theme song for decades. They want a communist in office and will do whatever it takes to keep him there.

I will vote for who ever is left standing in the general but if Newt is still in come my states primary ….he gets my vote

Maybe, this?

Speaking of death panels. I defended Palin against a Democratic co-worker about them. When info came out about the IPAB (Independant Payment Advisory Board), I printed out the article and took it to her.

Unfortunately, since a Democrat official hasn’t called them a “death panel” she refuses to believe that it is the same thing. That was when I gave up on trying to make her see reason.

Amazingly enough, Obama has disappointed this “dyed in the wool” Democrat so much that she has expressed dismay that Hillary hasn’t stepped up to run against him.

Happy Three Year Blogiversary! I just created and added a “Miss Me Yet” image in my sidebar, see if that works.

Yeah. Now they defend her… after rotisserie-ing her and her family shamelessly?

Sons of b!%@*%$, the bunch of them!

I have a love/hate relation with Newt. Most of the times he says the right thing. But he also goes with the flow.
Remember, she said she would not seek, but not that she wouldn’t accept.

huskers-for-palin | October 12, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Vultures. They were silent when she was attacked, brought to near bankruptcy, and slandered with blood libel. Now they want her help and invoke her name?

I bet if they even allow her into the RNC convention, it will only be for a dog-and-pony show. All they want from her is her donar list and volunteer list.

Palin will work in 2012 getting Tea Party conservatives elected in the house/senate/state. I stand by waiting for her directives.

How can we miss her if she won’t go away?

And I mean that in a good way.

She may not be running, but rumors of her demise are sure to be greatly exaggerated.

It would not surprise me that she will wind up in Washington in the upcoming administration.

She has plenty to offer in so many spheres of influence.

She will not be the next president, and that was a decision of her choosing – I’m not at all convinced that she couldn’t have pulled it off – but it wouldn’t surprise me that she’ll be the president after that.

    I would like to see her run the dept of energy ….maybe she could actually give it a purpose

      Would you really give up an amazing life in Alaska to do a dog’s job in Washington Dc for 10% of the pay?

      She could get the CEO job for an exploration /mining company. One of her co- speakers in Korea was CEO of Rio Tinto & his pay is $12 million per year.

      A Precious Metals exploration company is also a high possibility. Should this eventuate & should they find desired metals it would mean so much more than even oil. SP has been one of the few Americans highlighting the weakness of dependence on China.

      Lastly I would want to continue my running . She really moves well & running in the wilds of Alaska (& deserts of Arizona ) would be impossible to give up . Unless you are so inclined you could never understand the love of such freedoms.

      As for American politics -she gave her all – & was attacked high & low.

      I would say F You you morons . Get yourselves out of this hole yourselves.

Love the photo images. I was away when I saw the post on my twitter feed, so I’m glad to see so many excellent images!!

Yeah, I miss her. But I know she’s NOT going away. Interesting about all this Newt talk. I didn’t see that coming last night, but it makes sense.

She admires Newt; maybe worth reconsidering……? If only I could erase that image of him on that sofa with San Fran Nan…….. UGH!

“Miss me yet?”

You betcha’!

It is important to remember those people who worked with such malicious intent to destroy Sarah Palin and thus deprive the American people the opportunity to be represented by this good woman. The campaign against Sarah Palin remains one of best examples of leftist Alinsky politics of personal destruction. Many of those JournoListers are still powerful members of the press, politics and academia. Karen Tumulty moderator of the most recent debate was one. I question why individuals who were part of this lying malicious cabal should escape unscathed to wreak damage further on our nation.

Tim Groseclose’s new book “Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind” which I highly recommend.

I don’t miss Palin cause she hasn’t gone anywhere & will be a positive force for conservatives in the upcoming races on the state and national level.

The governor of my state is an able conservative and he is in the race. He was also one of the first politicians to embrace the Tea Party and was endorsed by his friend Sarah Palin in his last gubernatorial race against Kaye Bailout Hutchinson who was backed by the Bush contingent.

“… expressed dismay that Hillary hasn’t stepped up to run against him.”

I was under the impression that she took the money and ran.

Can it be that Obama is the biggest scam ever pulled? Now it appears that they want to seal his records after he leaves office:
http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:H.R.3071:#

“To amend chapter 22 of title 44, United States Code, popularly known as the Presidential Records Act, to establish procedures for the consideration of claims of constitutionally based privilege against disclosure of Presidential records.”

How does Cain argue that he’s the alternative to Romney when he endorsed Romney in his column from 2008?
” February 4, 2008

Why I Support Mitt Romney: Leadership Substance”
http://004eeb5.netsolhost.com/hc098.htm

Cain & Romney are cut from the same political cloth which is why they are so cozy…sheeesh!

Neither can beat Obama…which may be what the rinos want.

PDS is no longer just Palin Derangement Syndrome…It’s morphed into Perry derangement syndrome.

    In 2008, Romney was going to be “chosen” to run against Hillary. When it was decided that Jugears was to be the one, Romney had to go because they feared he’d beat him. McCain was propelled up because he would not fight hard enough against the Empty Suit.

    Cain was right to support Romney in 2008 and he’s just as right to oppose him now (regardless of whether he is running).

Former rabid palinista here – no, I don’t miss you at all. What I miss is my time and energy wasted on someone who couldn’t/wouldn’t close the deal.

What happened is that we got played. No way would the Sarah we thought she was would do what she did. We were, essentially, the right’s version of obamabots. It’s not a sin but holding onto fantasies during a crisis is.

In all fairness to Sarah, she herself may not have realized until the very end that she wasn’t what she projected. I do not think Sarah Palin has a malicious bone in her body, which precludes any possibility of this being a clever scheme she cooked up. No, it was good that she recognized that she wasn’t suitable – too bad Michele Bachmann is clueless in this regard.

Get on the Cain Train – tons of former palinistas are.

    hrh40 in reply to platypus. | October 13, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Your loss.

    Cain is 4 Sale. To the GOP. He’s working with Romney. Where did he “go after” Romney in the debate like he said he would?

    Why won’t Cain release the names of his economic advisors? Could they be his buddies from his days on the Fed?

    Why is Cain openly speculating about his VP picks? Bit premature, dontcha’ think?

    You haven’t been listening to Palin at all if you still think the USA is all about the presidency.

    The presidency is actually the weakest of the Fed branches.

    Palin is working to shore up the stronger branch = Congress. As well as governors for the Sovereign states.

    Stay tuned.

Weren’t some big conservative pundits calling for a candidate with no charisma? Looks like we’re getting that.

Unfortunately, also candidates who don’t seem to get that the central issue is the role and size of government.

Two areas where Sarah Palin excels.
