Reince Priebus Shuns Sarah Palin Who Will Do More for Priebus’ Granddaughters in Their Lifetime Than His Own Politics

Sarah Palin, the history-making, first female GOP candidate for one of the two highest offices in the land, was not mentioned in the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) statement honoring Women’s History Month. To repeat, the history-making former Vice Presidential candidate was not apart of the RNC’s homage to Republican Women’s History. Singled out were Governors Susana Martinez (R-NM) and Nikki Haley (R-SC), both of whom Palin endorsed in 2010. Both won their races.

The RNC also honored Susan B. Anthony, Senator A. A. Sargent and Margaret Chase Smith. RNC chair, Reince Preibus mentioned his granddaughters, for whom Palin will do more for in their lifetimes than Priebus’ pathetic politics will do.

Susana Martinez:

In May 2010, Susana Martinez was running neck and neck in the Republican primary for the New Mexico governor’s race. Her opponent, Allen Weh, a former chairman of the New Mexico Republican Party, had poured hundreds of thousands of dollars of his own money into his campaign. Martinez, a district attorney, was fighting to close the gap. Then Sarah Palin came to town.

On May 16, Palin, whose star power was at its peak, appeared before a standing-room-only crowd in Albuquerque’s Marriott hotel, clad in a black leather jacket, and enveloped Martinez in a hug. “I’ll tell you what, New Mexico, you have a winner here, in someone who is proudly pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-family, pro-fiscal conservative, anti-tax, anti-big government!” she cried. A top Republican strategist familiar with the race says that, in internal tracking polls, Martinez got “an eight or nine percent bounce” after Palin’s endorsement. “It was a total game changer,” he says

Martinez went on to win the primary and then the general election. Now, when Republican insiders are asked about possible vice presidential candidates, she is often high on the list. …New Republic, January 25, 2012.

If you have an doubts that Martinez was the right pick, find out who she really is here. She will WOW you.

As the races for November’s midterm elections heat up, one Republican who is not on any ticket is stealing the national spotlight: Sarah Palin….

South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley also heaped praise on Palin for giving her campaign the push it needed. Unlike Haley‘s other endorsers, which include former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Palin emerged as a key defender of Haley when two other Republicans alleged she had extramarital affairsSource:ABC News

Sarah Palin won big and she wasn’t even on the ballot.

In Tuesday’s primaries, two key Republicans came out on top with the help of the former Alaska governor.

In South Carolina, state representative Nikki Haley overcame allegations of an affair and beat three rivals in the race for the GOPs gubernatorial nomination.

Haley came just shy of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff.

Palin was supportive early and often. She joined Jenny Sanford, former wife of disgraced Gov. Mark Sanford, as one of Haley’s most ardent fans.

Her decision to get – and stay – involved in the race here in South Carolina was a huge boon to our campaign, Haley spokesman Tim Pearson told Politico.

After a blogger claimed to have an extra-marital affair with Haley, Palin used the power of Facebook to help debunk the accusation.

Don’t let some blogger make any accusation against your Nikki, Palin told South Carolinians on her Facebook page, adding the guy doesn’t even have the guts or the integrity to speak further on such a significant claim. Source: NY Daily News

Priebus and his co-chair, Sharon Day, shunned Sarah like a piece of garbage, a nobody, invisible.

Palin endorsed Senator Ted Cruz who was up against a very powerful Texan, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R).

So to the RNC and particularly to Reince Preibus, we understand that Palin is a threat to those you raise money for, so, of course, we haven’t donated to the RNC for years, and will not any time soon.

To the establishment elite, who have been in the Chambers far too long, you fear a dedicated wife, mother, athlete and common sense woman who understand energy, and by the way Vladimir Putin, and who does cling to her Bible, insists that we govern constitutionally, which means you lose your hold on power. What a vile lot you are.

Palin also endorsed Rand Paul. Take a look at this video and the man who contacted Sarah about now Senator Paul. Listen for the man’s comment about Nancy Pelosi. Video H/T God, Guts and Sarah Palin

    The establishment Republicans want one thing more then anything else and that is to get re-elected. This isn’t about the constitution, doing the right thing, saving the republic or serving the citizens well. It is about being a politician in a majority congress so you can wield power, bring home the bacon and enrich themselves. If our present crop of Repubicans win in 2014 they will not balance the budget. They will not reverse or “fix” Obamacare. They will not cut taxes, reduce spending and the size of government. They will essentially be “Democrat light” and our headlong plunge into bankruptcy will merely slow ever so slightly. So in fact Reince Priebus and the RNC are doing exactly what they should be dong to further their goals. They believe that ignoring the 5 million tea party people who “want” to vote for a conservative is perfectly fine because for the most part those 5 million don’t have any other decent choice. They believe that giving 12-40 million illegal aliens and their families amnesty is a good thing because “maybe” some of these new citizens can be convinced to vote for them. They don’t care that your taxes will go up to pay for these “new citizens” and your quality of life will go down thanks to amnesty. All they care about is having political power and using it for their own benefit.

    • GoneWithTheWind, I agree with all you said. I understand that if we take the Senate, all is lost, and if we do, all is still likely lost. It will take a good number of strong conservatives to go to work on the RINOs and to speak very publicly to bring pressure on those who have been there so long. I have close to no confidence that ObamaCare will be repealed.

    Yes, Sarah Palin deserves recognition for her role in Republican Women’s History. You offer good reasons in your discussion of her candidacy for the Vice Presidency and her backing of conservative leaders who won their campaigns for public office.

    You omitted, however, an even bigger Palin achievement: her record as governor of Alaska. She pushed through many reforms and policies that earned her an approval rating just shy of 100%. I first became a Palin fan when I read a post by Beldar that reviewed her accomplishments, published many months before McCain chose her as his running mate and the media began its full-throated campaign of destruction. Her record as governor is little known these days, except in a distorted form, and most of what people seem to know is slander and gossip churned out by the left.

    I cannot find a working link to the 2008 Beldar post:
    Patterico linked it, though, and discussed some of the pertinent details in a post of his own at:
    Patterico expressed exactly my own reaction to McCain’s pick: I had read Beldar’s post and was thrilled by her nomination.

    We all understand why the Republican establishment will not honor Sarah Palin, and Beldar’s 2008 post contained all the evidence they needed. The GOP did as much to trash Palin during McCain’s campaign as they could, so we can’t expect any better behavior from them now.

    • pa, at one point in the draft I did have a mention that it was no small thing that she was an energy-savvy governor of Alaska. I must have lost it as I was moving things around. I was really frustrated that the GOP website was down (at least that particular posting). McCain’s staffers treated her horribly, and I still want to cringe when she defends him. Thankfully, we don’t have to see it often. I understand loyalty, but he represents everything she does not represent, and I haven’t seen one good, honorable or loyal effort on his part to help her. I’ll check out Patterico’s link. Thanks much!

        “McCain’s staffers treated her horribly, and I still want to cringe when she defends him.” True, true, true! I detest McCain more each year, and I think Palin’s continuing courtesy is inexplicable.

        I found a link to Beldar’s original post via the Wayback Machine:

        However, now that I’ve read it, I see that it wasn’t his earliest post on Sarah Palin (as I remember it). The one that impressed me so much saved her photo for a surprise ending. I’ll keep looking through his archives, but I sorta-kinda think that his older posts might have been disappeared somewhere along the way. Thank goodness for the Wayback Machine.

  • Conservative Pup

    The way the ‘official’ Republican party has treated Sarah Palin from the start has shown me their character (lack of) clearer than anything else they have done or not done, said or not said. I have no use for them. Individual candidates for me and any spare money I might scrape up. Not one dime to any Republican party organization. Thanks Maggie, for such a great article on this.

    • Conservative Pup, I agree that the GOP lack of even the tiiniest bit of respect for Sarah is a dead give away because there is nothing not to respect her for. They might disagree (and of course they do because she would pull down their ivory towers) but of all the things they’ve done, this is glaring. Thanks for the nice words. I appreciate it. Do you think our ice and snow is gone now?

    Martinez & Haley were Governors, and thus worthy of mention, whereas Palin was merely a Governor.

    Fire Priebus. Now.
