As we end the year, the Washington Post has several Republicans, including Sarah Palin, talk about what they would do if they were running for president.
Sarah uses this opportunity to give the current field of GOP candidates some advice:
Given the concerns I have for some of the Republican field’s focus thus far, I must implore the candidates to do something that sounds self-promoting, but whatever. Candidates, please turn to Chapter Three of “Going Rogue” and read what it takes for our country to step toward energy independence. Note the lesson I share in the same chapter about taking on the “elite,” the crony capitalists and the permanent political establishment to get a job done.
Do you really realize what is at stake? What is at stake is our republic. The gravity of today’s situation is real. We count on you to lead our nation on the right path. Please let us know you realize this. Understand how the left’s terrifyingly naive assault on American industry exposes us to the mercy of foreign regimes whose prime objective is, at worst, our permanent demise and, at best, is stripping away our freedom. God has blessed America with ingenuity, natural resources and the strength of our workforce. Let’s use them. Tell voters that you understand this. Talk about this on the campaign trail. And quit gripin’ and moaning about “inside baseball” partisan machinations and maneuvering. We have other things to worry about. Stay strong. Focus on defending our republic and how we’ll re-industrialize our most exceptional nation in order to defeat the incumbent and win for America.
Blunt and to the point, this is vintage Sarah Palin. In a couple of paragraphs she cuts to the chase. Not only giving good, solid [and winning] advice, but pointing out why our candidates are in big trouble.
We have candidates and their supporters creating conspiracies theories at warp speed concerning the Virginia ballot access fiasco. Of course, it’s only a fiasco because Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich are too disorganized to get enough signatures to qualify for the ballot, despite having five months to get it done.
And because the candidates, and their supporters, refuse to accept reality.
Face it. Perry and Newt failed. Get over it. Every mimute spent bitchin’ about this, is a minute spent not talking about how these people intend to get America back on the right track.
Frankly, the candidates need to sit down and read Sarah’s entire book. Then they MIGHT get it. But probably not.
You read Sarah’s words and immediately think: “Girl, if you want this done right, you’re going to have to jump in and do it yourself!” These other candidates simply aren’t capable of articulating Conservative principles and common sense solutions. Most certainly, none have actually put them into practice.
Before readers go all “She’s going to run!!!!!” I gotta throw some cold water on you. The Post also asked Haley Barbour, Herman Cain, and Mitch Daniels to weigh in as well.
That said, she’s the only one of this bunch voicing “concern” over the field. She’s the only one on record as saying she isn’t happy with any of these candidates, and she’s the only one who’s said it’s not to late for “someone” to jump into the race. What that means, only Sarah Palin knows.
There are reasons why, when Sarah Palin was Governor, you saw magazine covers like this:
And by “hot” they meant her approval ratings in the 90s [highest of any governor in the nation] and the ability to get things done. Not her looks.
If we had candidates running for president that had her résumé and skill, we wouldn’t be seeking someone else to jump in the race.
