Sarah Palin Laura Ingraham: Top Republicans Work to Stop Sarah Palin Presidential Run

Top Republicans, elite Republicans, fossile Republicans, whatever you want to call them, are believed to be working diligently behind the scenes to stop a Sarah Palin presidential bid. See a video below.

The information in quotes “advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders,” who do not want to be identified fearing a grassroots backlash, saying they believe Palin will run and they are “determined” to stop her.

Palin’s staff declined to comment, but Sarah came out swinging:

“[T]hese are the brave people who want to lead the nation and run the world. And but they’re not brave enough to put their name in an article,” she told Greta Van Susteren. “I learned back in the day that who, what, when, where, why of journalism. You report that facts; you let other people decide what their opinion is going to be. So having unnamed sources in an article like this is very, very, disappointing, you know. And it doesn’t do anybody any good. It doesn’t educate anybody. … I’m getting used to it though.”

The article also Washington Republicans hope to get Palin out of the race by strengthening the Republican National Committee (RNC). Good luck with that. “The people” are no longer donating to “the Committee.” We’ve learned to send our money directly to the candidate for the very reasons spelled out in this article. The RNC is an elitist old boy’s club, and we want none of their failed thinking.

The much-maligned RNC chair, Michael Steele, is beginning to get it:

Steele said the Washington fretting about Palin, who “excites and ignites an energy out there,” is part of a broader theme. “I think the Washington establishment needs to settle down a little bit and get ready for what’s about to hit them come January, when a significant number of grass-roots congressmen and -women show up and are not prepared to play this game the way they’re used to playing it,” the chairman said. Asked whether Palin is electable, he added: “Sure. Why not? … I’m sure she can make that case.”

The Republican Washington establishment is scared silly at the thought of a-Sarah-Palin in the highest office in the land…at the thought of those she would bring to the Cabinet, and at how she would speak to the American people from the Oval Office, because once a-Sarah-Palin-type gets to the White House, the GOP knows their privileged fat-cat life is over.

At this point I do not have a favorite in the 2012 race, but I know we can do much, much worse than Sarah Palin, and it might be that our good fortune is wrapped up in sending Sarah to Washington. By next Spring “the people” will be far more comfortable with the field of Republicans and Conservatives (hopefully Conservative Republicans)I suggest the GOP fossils who have had such tremendous control of Conservatives, sit back and wait and listen and learn along with the rest of us. They’ve had it wrong recently, and in the past. We will try to see to it that doesn’t happen for 2012.

Laura Ingraham and Sarah Palin on Stopping a Palin Presidency (video)

  • Some of us (that is my name there) are working very hard to make those Washington Establishment folks the last contingent at the soup kitchen.

    • Larry, I know that, and appreciate the hard work of Conservatives all across the land. I have no doubt we will have to hold feet to the fire, and I feel it is a privilege to do so.

  • I’ve made it no secret that I’m not a Palin fan. However, as this unfolds, I’ve seen more and more how the left treats her with how they treated Reagan. Also, the GOP establishment didn’t like him either.

    • Hi Matt, I think lies are unfair, no matter what side they are on. I have been stand-offish on Sarah, loving her guiding the discussion of candidates, etc. I think she has been an amazing spokeswoman for Liberty. The more I hear from her, the more I like her. I think she has grown tremendously, or…is now learning to demonstrate what she has always been.

      I want to see the field and am glad there is time. The worst mistake we can make is lining up with someone too early, and give Democrats the opportunity to attack.

  • I call them “less able, talented, and principled Republicans”- acting like any other jealous inferior on the verge of defeat

    I think we all owe it to Sarah and the country to push back hard on unfair attacks on her and to work to counter the image she is now somehow damaged goods just because her opponents in the press and elsewhere have chosen to employ relentless, slanderous, and wholly cowardly character assasination rather than go after her widely popular platform

    I’m not endorsing Palin… I’m saying she deserves a fair shake, and she’s in no way getting it

    • I’m in total agreement. It is our duty to support her truths, and to deny progressives the ability to get by with lies. Well said, RR.

  • The entire DC establishment needs shaken up. It begins in January…….

    • My sentiment exactly, Randy.

  • In my view, America needs more divisiveness – the blurred lines between the radical Marxist Left and the Conservative Patriot Right need to be cleared up and so defined the American people cannot mistake who for who and surely will be beyond a coverup by the MSM. We need this country divided clearly into one side that wishes to save it and uphold our Constitution and personal liberties and the other side that wishes to continue the tranformation of America into “Europe Light.” No other candidate on the Right can create this stark difference and this clear definition more than Sarah Palin.

    • I agree Holger. Sarah is courageous and fierce. She speaks what she believes to be true and says things no one, that’s no one politician will ever say. If we believe what she says, then we must credit her for that and think about her ability to bring that to the Oval Office.

  • Everyone – please accept my apologies for not getting to these comments in a more timely manner. My excuse is Thanksgiving. Sigh!

  • Priorities is priorities.

    It is OK to have a life.
