“Until you’ve lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was.” – Margaret Mitchell
As former governor Sarah Palin continues her full throttle 2010 speaking tour across the depth and breadth of America’s heartland, her campaign for the presidency could be viewed as underway. In appearances from Florida to Montana, she is not only honing her policy statements but in the process earning respect from her political peers. The latest support coming from Karl Rove:
“Former George W. Bush political adviser Karl Rove said Sunday that the political winds will change a bit, but that 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, should get ready now, if she is planning for president to run in 2012. ”
One wonders, have the winds of political change picked up for out of the mainstream candidates like Governor Palin? The Massachusetts voters seemed to think so in electing Scott Brown their Republican Senator, filling the seat of an incumbent that had been in Washington DC his entire political career. As the number of voters disenchanted with the progressive Democratic regime and it’s spend thrift ways grows, and with each attempt to force legislation that Americans don’t want, the winds of change will indeed blow very hard.
“On the fate of the tea party movement, Rove said that a deep-pocketed figure like Ross Perot would be necessary to make the party a real threat in 2012. But the movement has energized the left, right and independents to focus on government spending. ”
On that remark I disagree. The deep pockets of the RNC, not a third-party candidate will overcome the current mess in Washington. This is why it is SO IMPORTANT that the GOP further hardens its constitutional stance and quits backing weak candidates nominated by local committee members casting votes for future political favors. America does not want the Coakley’s nor the Scozzafava’s — America is looking to the Rubio’s, the Brown’s, and the Palin’s as leaders. Are you listening Michael?
