Sarah Says “Go Rogue!”

Weakly Standard:

Palin to Romney-Ryan: ‘Go Rogue’

“With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should ‘go rogue’ and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security,” says Palin. “They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform.”

Palin also suggests that Romney and Ryan can be responsible for an epiphany on this country’s fiscal standing. “America desperately needs to have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment in discussing our big dysfunctional, disconnected, and debt-ridden federal government,” says Palin.

“It is nothing short of appalling that President Obama couldn’t even remember how much our national debt is during his interview with David Letterman the other night. Even my 10-year-old daughter knows that it’s $16 trillion, and unlike Obama, she’s not responsible for adding trillions to it. Obama casually told America that we don’t have to worry about our debt in the ‘short term.’ Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to ask him how long that ‘short term’ will last.”

Well that would certainly be historic.

I’m torn here.

With all due respect to the former governor, it might be better to wait until after the election before they go hog wild with that honesty stuff. I’m all in favor of our politicians telling us the truth, but history shows that too much honesty can be hazardous to their careers.

I don’t mean they should lie to people. There’s just some things you don’t share on a first date.

    I’d love to see him buy some air time & address the voters directly with something like, “this is what they’re not telling you…”

    What I am sick of is the false dichotomy we keep getting offered. It’s either letting government spend money like a crackhead with a stolen credit card or some Randian no-government fantasy.

    There is a middle ground where we still have a social safety net, good roads and a strong military.

      Totally agree.

      Honk! One of the reasons I’m currently rooting on the R’ is because I think curbing their worst Randian impulses is going to be easier in the short term than curbing the D’s crack habit. Later on, who knows?

    • wmcb says:

      And BTW, George fucking Bush upset the balance of things. It used to be you could sort of aim for a mixed govt: enough R’s to keep the pursestrings tight, enough D’s to keep a safety net. Even Bill, much as I liked him, was forced into a lot of his good budgeting by conservatives. His gift was he could get services done even with them being chintzy. He worked with it.

      Then big spender GW came along and opened the floodgates from THAT side. Threw the whole balancing act thing all to hell. Now we’ve mostly got spend shitloads vs spend a modest dump.

    Ever wonder what the top of the world looks like?

    Government waste and welfare fraud are costing us billions a year. And we know keeping workers on the gov payroll = votes for Teh Won. If RomRy tell us they’re closing down agencies, tightening the welfare rolls to the truly needy and cutting a whole buncha pork, they will lose this election.

    I read that Ryan got booed at the AARP convention by stating he’d throw out Obamacare and give us a better healthcare overhaul. AARP is set to make billions off Obama’s care. Of course, this will be interpreted OLD PEOPLE HATE RYAN.

    I can see why Sarah didn’t speak at the RNCC, she would have been the story, not Romney 😉

    Truth! What a concept! 👿 The grownups in the room can take it and trive with the details! For everyone else, go stick your heads back in the sand, we’ll let you know when it’s safe to come out! 👿

    • carol haka says:

      Just heard 50% of all people over 80 have some form of dementia and the age is trending dowwards. We need to stop wasting money on bs and start spending on imprtant things. 👿

    Mondale was honest with the American people when he ran for president. I think that’s all I need to say about the matter.

  7. HELENK says:

    any way that Romney could have some “fireside chats” with the people of America? I get statements on my facebook page but maybe his own blog and a twice a week’ tv informercial’???
    that way people with internet and those without could hear his message and decide

    • carol haka says:

      They said this morning Romney needs to buy Primetime and lay it all out. I hope he does and I hope he has Sarah write it and teach him how to deliver it. 👿 Just sayin ……

      • DM says:

        The problem Romney is facing, and I can appreciate his dilemma, is that he has to win over those people who liked Obama in 2008, but are now undecided. Any false step in attacking Obama could do more harm than good. It’s a difficult situation because besides convincing those voters, he cannot count on the media to give him fair reporting. Everything he says that can be twisted, will be twisted. The media agenda is to derail his message, his campaign, and anything that he says will be twisted by the media.

      Infomercials are expensive.

    Ironically, what “going rogue” really meant in terms of Palin, was that she stopped parroting the R party line and started speaking the plain truth. In that context, I agree with her, Romney needs to connect to voters by speaking plainly and from the heart. Everybody knows what the R and D talking points are and a whole lot of us just don’t want to hear it anymore. What we want now is some common sense ideas to float up above the chattering class, like Palin always delivers.
