In a statement to The Weekly Standard, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offers some advice for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, this year's Republican ticket for president and vice president, respectively.
"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.
What I continue to find amazing is that my good friend Rob - and indeed many otherwise bright, sophisticated people I know and respect - has nothing but contempt for Sarah Palin.
They respect me and my views. They know that even if my analysis of a particular situation differs from theirs that chances are I possess more "nuts and bolts" knowledge upon which to base my analysis than they do to back their opinion!
And I love Palin!
I love Palin because she's right far more often than she's wrong!
Sarah Palin has integrity. She's not always right... she's not always perfect... but for a politician she's pretty damn impressive when I rate her on the things that count for me.
"They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform."
Isn't that what I do here at Usually Right... day in... day out?
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.
And... she's... right...!!!
It's the constant lying, misrepresenting, coddling, and pandering to the worst aspects of human nature that most politicians engage in that has led to the place we're in now here in America!
"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."
Listen... folks... you know my opinion of Romney and you know I was never one of the Ryan worshipers... but for God's sake, compared to Obama, Biden, Reid, and Pelosi...
(*JUST SHAKING MY HEAD*)
Palin adds that Romney and Ryan are being "counted on" to get this right.
The problem is... I'm not at all sure they can be counted on to get this right. And even if they try, understand people, the mainstream media has been acting and will continue to act as an auxiliary wing of the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee.
"At the founding of our country, a great American patriot wrote, 'If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace,'" says Palin. "Obama's motto seems to be, 'Let the good times roll in my day. The kids can deal with the catastrophic bankruptcy in theirs.' That's no way for the leader of a great nation to behave, and I hope Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney continue to call him out on it. Generations of American children are counting on them."
