I was just having a Crappy day today when God Decided to give me a little Gift.

After 15 months of the Main Street Media Attacking everything she does Sarah, She is on her way.........
And After years of the Main Street Media Kissing Obama's A$$ the truth is finally being seen by Americans. They are having a much Harder time of propping up that Empty Suit!

I am Really starting to Look forward to 2012!! I know this is not my usual Blog Post, but I just wanted to share some good News!

Shocker polls: That Sarah Palin-Barack Obama gap melts to 1 point
December 8, 2009 2:42 am



Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, look what the pollsters just brought in.

A pair of new surveys revealing that President Obama is still declining and has hit a new low in job approval among Americans just 56 weeks after they elected him with a decided margin.

And -- wait for it -- Republican Sarah Palin is successfully selling a whole lot more than books out there on the road. Even among those not lining up in 10-degree weather to catch a glimpse of pretty much the only political celebrity the GOP has these days.

First, el jefe. Facing double-digit unemployment, rising spending, deficits and Afghan war casualties plus a keystone but stalled healthcare reform effort that caused a rare Sunday presidential visit to Capitol Hill, Obama recently fell below 50% job approval for the first time.

Then, last week's deft dance of rhetoric over sending reinforcements to Afghanistan but, on the other foot, bringing them home quickly maybe gave him a brief boost. That, however, collapsed with equal rapidity.

Obama's new Gallup Poll job approval number is 47%. Last month it was 53%.

Regular Ticket readers will recall how in this space in late November we pointed out that Obama's closely watched job approval slide was coinciding with Palin's little-noticed rise in favorability. And it appeared they might cross somewhere in the 40s.

Well, ex-Sen. Obama, meet ex-Gov. Palin.

The new CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows Palin now at 46% favorable, just one point below her fellow basketball fan.

(The same poll, btw, has bad news for Dick Cheney-haters; the outspoken former VP has climbed out of the 29% basement, back up to 39% now. How do you suppose he's done that without a new book? But that's another story.)

Not that either Palin or Obama will admit caring about such trivial things as disparate political polls....


...1,071 days before the 2012 election, when Republicans will have the concept of change on their side. Obama's camp is already using the looming Palin pall as a fundraising tool. Never let any potential threat go unmonetized.

The new numbers seem to indicate that despite oft-cited predictions about the dire impact of Palin resigning her Alaska governor's job in July, a lot of people who don't live in Alaska (and, come to think of it, most people don't live in Alaska) don't seem to care. She wasn't their governor then and she still isn't.

Sarah is in Colorado Springs. The way to have her sign your book is to arrive at the mall bookstore at 10AM to receive a rubber wristband, then come back at 4PM to stand in line for her 7PM expected arrival. SHe should have quite the line too!!!

Thanks CB. 2012 will indeed be interesting. I am constantly amazed at how accomplished, successful, powerful conservative women are vilified by the media and others who should be championing their success. I wish her well.

People camped out overnight in temperatures in the teens just to obtain a wrist band for her book signing in Sioux Falls, SD. People were so excited to see someone in politics that is actually genuine and down to earth instead of slime for once!

I can't wait for the 2012 elections. Mr. Obama is exactly what I expected....that's why I didn't vote for him. He's running the country into the ground...unless you're a welfare recipient...they love him.

Here book signing near here was standing room only. CB you are right 2012 is going to be an interesting year.

Every one of us knows someone like this: They always find someone else to blame for their own mistakes or shortcomings and never take responsibility for their own actions.

Sarah Palin's new book is a classic study in this form of self-delusion. It is never attractive when we see it in co-workers, for instance. It is even more distasteful when we see it in public figures.

Her attacks on John Bitney and others in her administration and the John McCain campaign are petty and mean-spirited. And this toward people who worked day and night to help her in her campaigns.

Her attacks on Bitney in her book are just plain false and show her basic misunderstanding of how government works. She castigated him for saying he was "friends" with some legislators and so because of that she had to wonder "whose side he was on."

Well, to start with, the Legislature is not the enemy. They are an equal, elected, constitutional branch of government with just as much legitimacy as the executive branch, and the branches work together to form public policy.

At the press conference following the first legislative session of her administration, she praised Bitney for the many successes she claimed. Now she blames him for her failures with the Legislature.

Which is the truth?

ADVERTISEMENT

The truth is that she fired him for a purely personal matter having nothing to do with his performance as she claimed during the campaign for VP. He was immediately hired by Speaker of the House John Harris, who stated on the House floor that "firing John Bitney was one of the biggest mistakes she had ever made." I am sure many other legislators felt the same way.

Several other senior members of her administration have apologized to John Bitney for these obviously false statements but she never had the personal integrity to do so herself.

Sarah quit on Alaskans because she just couldn't handle it. After this was clearly exposed and the glamour and celebrity were gone, she just wasn't interested anymore. So, off to the celebrity world again where there is no accountability and where even people like Lindsay Lohan still make the front page. She had a chance in this book to say something significant to really help Alaskans within the national dialogue. Instead, she chose the politics of persecution and blaming others.

Alaskans seem relieved to be rid of the constant drama and to now have Gov. Parnell, who actually does understand how government operates. This shows in his recent 81 percent positive rating as reported by pollster Dave Dittman.

It wasn't that Palin had the wrong advisers with too much experience as "insiders." It was that she wouldn't listen to them. It was well known that she wouldn't even meet with her own commissioners, much less, say, members of the public or the business community. Soon after the election, the fortress walls went up, followed by the private e-mail accounts, and it was destined to go downhill from there.

So much for open and transparent government.

I don't write this to tear down Sarah Palin as much as to point out hard-learned lessons for our democracy and future. Anyone who still believes in government by celebrity should see the movie "Idiocracy."

What a disappointment for those of us who worked on her campaign, and what a waste of potential for the state of Alaska.


Paul Fuhs is a lobbyist, former mayor of Unalaska and commissioner of commerce and economic development for Gov. Wally Hickel. He is a friend of John Bitney, and they worked together on Palin's campaign for governor.

As a City Council member we have a huge reception in Juneau every year. It's called the 'Crab Feed' and we invite everyone. We sent an invitation to the Governor, we called, she never responsed. We invited her her to Unalaska for many special occasions, never seen her. We wanted to meet with the Governor as we meet with other legislators in Juneau, no response. I am glad we have a Governor in office who will work for the State of Alaska. As for President Obama, I am happy for the 'stimulus fund', for trying to see a promising future for our Country, and for his 'basketball' abilities, and that he won a Nobel Peace Prize. He's only been in office one year, and 2012 will be very political. Good luck to all.

CB,
Isn't it hard for you to like Sarah Palin when she thinks Homosexuality is a sin! How can you support her? How does that conversation work in your mind?

Sarah Palin is just another good looking woman that will get ahead simply because of her looks,

Sarah Palin is an idiot.....She couldn't survive more than 2 years as the Gov of Alaska, how would she survive 4 years as THE President? She needs to get her priorities straight and raise her kids, obviously she isn't doing something right. I'm republican and she is the ONLY reason why I didn't vote for McCain.

Jeff said...

How easily people forget that the country was already in the shape it is in because of our previous president. Please people! The last person I would count on to fix anything is Sarah Palin. She is a Snake!!!
