Video: Sarah Palin Urges People NOT Allow Hateful Attacks to Deter Them From “Jumping in the Arena”

Palin Fox and Friends

By Gary P Jackson

Thursday Morning Governor Sarah Palin appeared on Fox and Friends to talk about, among other things, the “resignation” of hate spewing MSNBC anchor Martin Basir. Among other things, Governor Palin makes the point, strongly, that these hate filled democrats are going to attack any American wanting to save this great country, and no one should allow these hate spewing demons to silence them, or intimidate them:

Sarah also hammers the democrats for their hypocrisy on ObamaCare, as well as her new book.

Thursday night Sarah wondered into the “No Spin Zone” for two segments with Bill O’Reilly. The governor even managed to get a few words in as O’Reilly talks over her. No small feat!

O’Reilly was just crying a week ago that Sarah wouldn’t do the Factor because she didn’t want to “mix it up with him.” It seems she is more than capable of “mixing it up” with the overrated blowhard:

My jaw dropped when O’Reilly asked Sarah if she was a “Tea Party gal.” I doubt anyone in America is more associated with the Tea Party than Sarah Palin! Made my head hurt!

Sarah Palin shows how it’s done. She makes great points about never backing down when fighting corrupt, out of touch politicians. You must hold these politicians’ feet to the fire. No quarter.

“Republican” Steve Schmidt Joins Slobbering Bill Clinton Lovefest on MSNBC

I wish to God, as a Republican, we had someone on our side who had the ability to do that. We don’t.

~ Steve Schmidt on Bill Cliton’s speech in Charlotte

By Gary P Jackson

The only thing missing in this deal is Bill Clinton with a cigar and Steve Schmidt in a blue dress:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

[Emphasis mine]

RACHEL MADDOW: I want to bring in my colleagues here on the set, in terms of the response to this speech. Steve Schmidt, as a political professional who was on the other side of this for the Republicans in 2008, how was this speech?

STEVE SCHMIDT: Well, it was extraordinary. It’s a virtuoso political performance. There’s no other politician in America in the last generation person that could hold the attention of a crowd, have them yelling and screaming, speaking for three-quarters of an hour. I mean, I wish to God, as a Republican, we had someone on our side who had the ability to do that. We don’t. It would be great if we did. Just an amazing performance – struck by the political – almost genius of how he embraced the Bush family and George W. Bush for the purposes of marginalizing House Republicans and pushing them to the extreme. It was a devastating critique, but it was delivered with an absence of malice or anger – a smile on his face, logic – aimed squarely at the middle of the electorate, where he’s so popular. Very powerful endorsement for President Obama; another good night for them.

ED SCHULTZ:
Affable, effective – as a Democrat, it doesn’t get any better. I’m sitting here – I’m giddy. I mean, this is exactly what Barack Obama needed – mending fences, bringing people together, and understanding the facts. And I like the way that President Clinton talked about the alternative universe that the Republicans have painted President Obama in, that they’re not in reality. They’re not in the real world. He even used the word hate, and I’m glad he addressed this tonight….Gosh, I just think President Clinton just did Barack Obama the biggest favor he could have ever done, and I think this is going to give him the bounce.

What’s remarkable is that Steve Schmidt is taken seriously in Republican circles. Notice how he sounds as in love with Clinton as Ed Schultz, who is certifiably insane?

If you missed the 49 minute 57 second speech that drones on and on:

Even the Washington Post, when posting the transcript of the speech, writes:

Former President Bill Clinton often went off his script and went over scheduled time in addressing the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday night.

Charles Krauthammer has a different take on the speech, calling it a “swing and a miss” and a missed opportunity to actually endorse President Obama, rather than make it about himself:

I think it was a giant swing and a miss,” Krauthammer said. “Mighty Casey — and Bill Clinton is a natural — he struck out on this. I don’t think it would move the needle whatsoever. Look, it had all the classic Clinton elements — it was engaging, it was humorous. In some cases, it was generous: I think there were more mentions of the Bushes than I heard in three days in Tampa. But on the other hand it was also vintage Clinton in that it was sprawling, undisciplined and truly self-indulgent.

This is one of the strangest nomination speeches, I think, ever given,” he continued. “It was a kind of an amalgam between a State of the Union address, a policy wonk seminar and what sounded to me like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term. Obama was sort of incidental. He’d be shoved in every once in a while in the speech as a way to say, ‘well, he thinks as I do.’

Krauthammer noted the long-windedness of Clinton’s 50-minute speech and suggested Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan could have covered the same subject matter in a fraction of the time.

One last point: It is true that he made a lot of detailed rebuttals — that he is sort of the rebutter-in-chief on most of the stuff heard in Tampa,” Krauthammer said. “But Paul Ryan could handle all of that in 10 minutes in his debate. So I think it was a wasted opportunity of what could have been a great, stirring, rousing endorsement of Obama.”

We all know Steve Schmidt is a liar and a sell-out, but I’m amazed by the ease that he can set there and not only praise Bill Clinton, but dismiss the entire Republican Party, a party that he has used to earn a living from for years.

I’m not saying Clinton’s speech was horrible, but there are folks who could have done better. If Steve hadn’t spent all of his time lying about Sarah Palin, he might have noticed that no one can give a better speech, or hold a crowd as spellbound, as she can.

Stacy Drake has more Steve Schmidt’s Palin bashing nonsense here.

There was a reason why only around half as many people watched Paul Ryan’s acceptance speech as did Sarah’s in 2008.

How about a little test? We have Clinton’s speech, let’s bounce it off these as a comparison:

From HER convention speech. A few minutes shorter with a lot more substance:

Here she is in Madison, Wisconsin … in freezing weather … she and the Tea Party members surrounded by violent union thugs:

Powerful speech with plenty of memorable and often quoted lines. [You can bet no one will remember what Bill Clinton said in Charlotte, or much care a week from now]

And let’s not forget the incredible energy surrounding Sarah Palin’s speech over Labor day weekend 2011 in Indianola, Iowa:

Very memorable stuff.

Seen enough? Oh … what the hell … how about her speech from CPAC 2012, a standing room only deal that forced organizers to set up TV monitors in other rooms to accommodate everyone who wanted to hear what Sarah Palin had to say:

We must give Bill Clinton his due, he is, after all, the best the democrats can do. Thankfully, we have much better, we have Sarah Palin.

Meanwhile Steve Schmidt’s fortunes have sunk so low he’s forced to work for a racist TV network that has to lie to their viewers as they carry Barack Obama’s water.

The next time someone quotes Steve Schmidt when discussing Sarah Palin, or well, anything, remember that he’s nothing more than a hired gun, a political prostitute, as you laugh in their faces!

The O’Jays had guys like Steve Schmidt pegged long ago:

Why is ANYONE Shocked Racist MSNBC Edited Out All Coverage of Minorities at RNC Convention?

By Gary P Jackson

If you were on Twitter last night, you followed the blow-by-blow as each and every minority speaker came on stage. The buzz was, MSNBC managed to cut to a commercial, or go to the studio, when a minority speaker came up. And there was a whole lot of them last night.

From Francesca Chambers:

MSNBC wants you to think the Republican Party hates minorities. So much so that the liberal news network cut minority speeches from it’s convention coverage.

When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.

MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.

Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.

And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.

Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.

My only shock here is why everyone is surprised! This ain’t MSNBC’s first racist rodeo!

Remember a few year back, when the ObamaCare battle was in full swing? Before this evil piece of legislation became law, there were some seriously heated town hall meetings across the country.

At one meeting in Arizona, a black man named Chris showed up with a rifle. Legal in his state. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but legal. The man was there protesting ObamaCare.

As Greg Guttfeld pointed out at the time, the racists over at MSNBC went out of their way to edit their coverage to make sure their views never, ever, found out the fellow was indeed, a black man. The MSNBC anchorette even goes so far as saying the man was white! An absolute lie.

Of course, MSNBC isn’t the only lying, worthless media outlet out there. John Nolte over at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism was on Twitter and kept a running tab of all of the shenanigans going on with the media outlets and how they covered the media. The bad and the good. [mostly bad] Check it out here.

Dear Mr. Olbermann, Consider a Senate Run

schadenfreude: enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others

By Gary P Jackson

The world of left wing madness and foaming at the mouth hatred was dealt a serious blow on Friday when MSNBC announced that it had shown their very own Edward R Murrow wannabe the door. I guess spewing hatred at Sarah Palin 24/7 isn’t the best game plan after all.

From P.J. Salvatore at Big Journalism:

The host, who has had a stormy relationship with the management of the network for some time, especially since he was suspended for two days last November, came to an agreement with NBC’s corporate management late this week to settle his contract and step down.

In a closing statement on his show, Mr. Olbermann said simply that it would be the last edition of the program. He offered no explanation other than on occasion, the show had become too much for him.

Too much indeed. Olbermann Watch and John Gibson hardest hit!

Read more and see the dramatic video here.

Folks took to Twitter to kindly offer Olby some new job suggestions.

Speaking of which, Sara R, a diarist over at the Daily Kos, offered this up:

Mr. Olbermann, Consider a Senate Run

I, like so many others, was astonished tonight by Keith Olbermann’s announcement that “Countdown” was over.

When one door closes, another opens. The thought that came to my mind was, this man is being freed up for something else. And then I thought, Joe Lieberman’s seat is going to open up…Connecticut…

Lest ye think Sara isn’t serious ….

Keith Olbermann has:

* A first class intellect * Killer debating skills * Experience before cameras and microphones

…but most of all…

* A deep, heartfelt concern for the wellbeing of the American people.

It’s a thought — maybe Sen. Franken and Mr. Olbermann should have coffee and talk about the experience of running for the Senate and what it is like to serve there.

A girl can dream, can’t she? I could not envision a finer public servant than a Senator Olbermann.

Oh PLEASE let this happen!!

Olbermann screaming and hollering like a banshee, as a senatorial candidate, during a presidential election year, would be a thing of beauty to behold.

In more more considered commentary Rowley Birkin of the BBC explains the Olbermann firing [H/T: Iowahawk]

Good night, good luck, good riddance!
