Sarah Palin: Oh Yeah, I Would Run For President If Everyone Else Sucks
OK, I admit, I stole that headline idea from our friends over at The Right Scoop, but it sums it up so well!
Sarah talks with Greta about all things political. First they talk about Christine O'Donnell, and then Lisa "Daddy's Girl" Murkowski’s sore loser write in bid up in Alaska against the Republican nominee, Joe Miller.
You can tell Sarah is feeling invigorated right now. Right off the bat she mentions that, thanks to the corrupt "lamestream media," we now more about Christine O’Donnell’s past than we do Barack Hussein Obama’s!
Oh yeah, she went there.
As always, Greta asks Sarah whether or not she will run in 2012, and as always Sarah tells her that she is focusing on whipping the Marxist-democrats in November. That's of course, how it should be.
Unlike the usual suspects, Romney, Gingrich, and the rest of the establishment elite, who lust after the presidency, spend all of their time angling for the presidency, wanting it so bad it hurts, one really gets the impression that when Sarah says she is fine doing what she is doing, she means it.
I still remember a couple of events last year that really left a lasting impression on me. One was in June, 2009. It was a dinner in Anchorage that featured Michael Reagan. Sarah introduced him. At the time she was fighting Obama’s Alaska Mafia © as well as the corrupt media hot and heavy. In her speech she rightly said the left wanted her to sit down and shut up. Sarah let it be known that she wasn't about to sit down and shut up though, and she implored the audience, and Americans nationwide, to stand up with her.
Sarah told the audience: "Politically, if I die, I die, but I won't sit down, and I won't shut up."
That was powerful, but only a prelude to what was coming. Less than a month later, July 3, 2009 to be exact. Sarah Palin had her own "Declaration of Independence" speech, and handed over the reins of her government to her Lt Governor, Sean Parnell. This was Sarah Palin being the ultimate statesman, relinquishing power for the good of her people.
Contrast that to the way the defeated Republican elites are acting. We've seen Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Lisa Murkowski, and now possibly Mike Castle do anything to hold on to the power after being soundly defeated. It's like they have chained themselves to their desks so they can't be removed from office. It's their birthright, you know.
When Sarah gave her Independence speech, she told the stunned audience that neither she, nor anyone else, needed to hold office, or have some sort of title to make a difference. Of course the media and the elites in both parties laughed and bloviated. They wrote her off. She was finished.
Since then Sarah has been putting on a clinic. She is schooling the whole world on how someone can be the leader of an entire movement, arguably the leader of the FREE world, with nothing more than a laptop and common sense. Oh, and a work ethic like no one else's.
With all that said, and let me be clear, I totally believe what she says. I absolutely believe that Sarah would be happy to go home and just kick back with Trig and Tripp and enjoy her family. Sarah was more than happy to just go back to Alaska and be Governor after the 2008 election. She could have been contented to continue to be the most successful and popular Governor in America.
The problem is, the left, the insane haters, and Obama’s hand picked thugs wouldn't let her. They couldn't let well enough alone.
I think we will see the same dynamic take hold after these mid-term elections. Events will be such that Sarah Palin will be called upon to serve. We know the Tea Party has no appointed leaders, and that's as it should be, but the nation as a whole is in dire need of true leadership.
Sarah makes it clear (and has been making it clear) that she would be open to a run of there was no one else filling the void. Well, let me help her out! Sarah, there is no one filling the void!
There are a ton of names out there, some well known, some totally unknown, but there are no leaders. There are a bunch of people who lust for power and glory, but there is no one with the proven abilities and proven record like Sarah Palin.
The comparisons are always there. It's very easy to call Sarah this generation's Ronald Reagan or this generation's Maggie Thatcher. Frankly though, Sarah is of our time. While she possesses many qualities of both of those great leaders, and many more, the truth is Sarah is one of a kind. A unique leader with her own skills and abilities.
Like Washington, Lincoln, Reagan, and Thatcher were the leaders for their time, Sarah Palin is the leader for our time.
