The Hunting Episode Really is Emmy Worthy

On the WSJ blog an author of a book on hunting named Pete Bodo has a thoroughly reasonable defense of all the weirdo issues being brought up regarding the hunting episode, She's a Great Shot, in TLC's Sara Palin's Alaska series.

I thought the episode's intimacy, quietness, good humor, camaraderie, humanity and humility were all off the charts on my endearing meter. It clearly wasn't the hunt Sara expected or wished for but she handled it with grace.  And her affection for her father was lovely.  If you missed this one be sure to check it out.

John Boehner isn't cynical

Bret Bair's Profiles

Asterisks mean will not run or who have overwhelming obstacles to being successful:

Governors and former Governors:
*Mitch Daniels
Haley Barbor
Mitt Romney
Tim Pawlenty
Sarah Palin
Mike Huckabee
*Chris Christie
Bobby Jindal

Senators:
John Thune
Jim DeMint

Representatives
Mike Pence
*Newt Gingrich


Long Shots:
* Rick Perry (Gov)

Rick Sanatorum (Former Sen)
Ron Paul (Rep)
Donald Trump





*Rick Perry and Chis Chistie are convincingly denying a run, Mitch Daniels insulted social conservatives too much by not understanding that social conservatives see our national debt as a moral issue and make up a large portion of the Tea Party.  Newt Gingrich burned too many wives.


But generally Bret's list is establishment or establishment compatible.  Pawlenti and Jindal are not standing up tall enough in order to resist our coming catastrophe.  Ron Paul unnerves people on defense.


My feeling is only Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin are the serious Tea Party compatible candidates.  I think for Palin to decide not to run (and I take her at face value when she says that) even DeMint would have to step up the rhetoric a bit, and frankly that's hard to imagine.


So my bet is on Palin being the best candidate and win the primary.  She will successfully paint a vision that our nation's founding principles being the way out of our current crisis. Whenever she decides to fully engage with the the LSM she'll thoroughly exceed expectations and win over independents.

Sen.-elect Marco Rubio Delivers Weekly GOP Address


Fine words. the video's definitely worth watching. But regarding this address Ed Morrissey writes: "The GOP may not have had a speaker like Rubio since Ronald Reagan, excelling at both the message and the mechanics of oratory."   Hmmm.

Even though Rubio doesn't live up to much of his hype it comes not from him but usually from the establishment GOP, Ed Morrissey excepting. (His oratory skills are good but not remarkable and his reputed "sunny" persona is closer to "earnestly gracious.")  He does inspire in me confidence in the future of GOP.  He's conservative, serious and smart, and his guardedness is a plus.  It's like Rubio knows he needs to tread carefully across the minefield of America's dire situation before a intensely pro-Democratic media.  The media's hatchet jobs in the midterms seemed to work sufficiently in at least creating a chilling effect even in those already irked by the liberal spin.  Similar to Allen West, Rubio's guardedness is appropriate to the situation. Though he takes the opposite tack from Sarah Palin, I like his message and approach.  He's being himself.

But the weird hype surrounding him that pretends he is warm and personable worries me.  When Republicans lie to themselves we face crushing defeats.

Announces 2012 theme in California speech

At the Bakersfield Buisiness Conference, the Governor linked what she considered the dual campaign themes of 2010 and 2012, and indirectly the difference between what should be expected coming out of the 2010 election and what should be expected coming out of 2012:

"These two elections, 2010 and 2012, go hand-in-hand. ... The theme of 2010 has got to be rebuke their errors, reject, repeal; and then the theme of 2012 — it's renew, revive and restore."

Palin told the crowd: "Folks, in 2012," the message should be "renew our optimistic, pioneering spirit, revive our free market system and restore constitutional limits and our standing in the world, as that abiding beacon of freedom. ... Not transformation but restoration with a 'Great Awakening' that we already feel emerging across America. We will win this year, we will win this year. And I believe we will win in 2012."

"Crash Course" on Economic Transformation

Murkowski floats running on the DemTicket?

Tuesday's Washington Post:
Murkowski described her options in continuing as "extraordinarily risky," and said she wouldn't even be thinking about going on if not for the showing of support and the risk she believes the state faces.

There are a host of issues at play, she said, from losing seniority in the Senate to the direction that both major party candidates are proposing taking the state that she believes are "causing Alaskans to sit up and pay attention and say, 'What just happened in this election and what are we left with?' And that's why they are coming back to me, saying, 'Is there any other opportunity that you would consider?' So that's kind of where I am today."

Discussion on parallels with Civil Rights Movement

Restoring Honor Rally- Dr. Alveda King

GB: "This is it."


In beginning his address at his Restoring Honor rally, Beck quoted the Gettysburg Address, saying that this particular line was running though his head all day: Little will note nor long remember what was said here today.

Instead Beck stressed that it was what was done that mattered. He argued later that what was done was that a fire was started that would continue to burn in our national life.

I think he is right. This national awakening that I think really has begun is about turning to God and turning away from sins, specific and very relevant sins like hating one's political opposition. To me this is the legitimate path of repentance for America. To me it's repentance in the Biblical sense.

In my understanding, repentance as a rule is sloppy and theologically confused. That's what it is because a sinner is always confused. Instead of being a step in conversion (as if it was not really for all men but only those that are in the process of converting) repentance is a desperate lurch toward God. The point of repentance is the about face from sin and the resurgence of hope for God and God's refreshing ways.

So while some of the Christian leaders who Beck contacted for support have qualms about being led by a Mormon, and while I'm the first person to have qualms about wobbly theology, repentance is different from the rest of the gospel. It can be a little wobbly on theology as long as the truth is loved and the person repenting is fully devoted to continuing to seek the truth. The person repenting may not even be familiar with the term repentance.

The ultimate biblical example of a repentant person is the prodigal son. And he was confused and had to be corrected by his father. He was a son eager to be a servant. But his father instead wanted to rejoice in his son's son-ship.

In the same way, repentance facilitates coming fully to Jesus Christ. My prayer is that those at the mall would follow in the steps of the prodigal and come to the Father's loving embrace and receive the full blessing of becoming his regenerate children.

Zo calls Black Conservative Press Conference a "bitter pill" for journalists covering event

The day after the Tea Party Express hosted a Black Conservative Press Conference at the National Press Club Offices in DC, Alfonzo Rachel spoke to Breitbart talk radio and said that the Presser started at about 9:30am and lasted until about noon. He said that the room was filled with journalists from various outlets, most of whom stayed for the duration of the Tea Party Express Event.  Zo also made the point that the groundwork has to be laid now that opposition to Obama is policy driven.

Romer has not really been acting as Chief Economic Advisor


From National Journal blog:

Christina Romer, chairwoman of Pres. Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, has decided to resign, according to a source familiar with her plans.
Romer, an economics professor at the University of California (Berkeley) before taking the key admin post, did not respond to repeated calls to her office.
"She has been frustrated," a source with insight into the WH economics team said. "She doesn't feel that she has a direct line to the president. She would be giving different advice than Larry Summers [director of the National Economic Council], who does have a direct line to the president."
"She is ostensibly the chief economic adviser, but she doesn't seem to be playing that role," the source said.
 Romer and her husband recently conducted research and found that, "tax increases are highly contractionary" and that, "tax cuts have very large and persistent positive output effects."  (American Economic Review)

Bush 2012?

A close first cousin of Jeb Bush, John Ellis, is floating the idea on his blog of a Presidential run for Jeb in 2012, as an anti-Palin independent!  Sad the elites see being pro-illegal immigration as the only path to the Mexican-American vote.  And it sounds like a Bush run this time without putting on a show of conservatism.

It would be the Bush Family Hopes to Find a way to Nudge down the Deficit against the GOP/tea party coalition and the Obama Lefties.  If it worked the downside/upside (depending on how you look at it) would be the almost certain end of the GOP.  I suspect Palin will make this scenario increasingly unlikely by continuing to bring around independents and proving herself the great unvarnished solution to our debt-laden future.

Israel Today report: strategy working for Obamba WH

Israel Today:
Israel's government coalition may be on the verge of collapse thanks to last week's unprecedented pressure on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by US President Barack Obama.
The left-wing Labor Party, which has more or less stood by Netanyahu until now, has demanded that the prime minister bring the opposition Kadima Party into the coalition in order to mend the current rift with Washington.
Senior Labor ministers said Obama's demand that Netanyahu extend indefinitely the Jewish building freeze in Judea and Samaria had given them the opportunity to test the prime minister and his ruling Likud Party.
The freeze is scheduled to expire in September, at which point many Labor lawmakers said they would have fought hard to extend it. But Obama wants Netanyahu's commitment on the matter now.
Labor ministers say the only way forward considering the current situation is for Netanyahu to kick some of his more right-wing coalition partners out of the government and offer Kadima leader Tzipi Livni enough influence and power to entice her to join.
Israeli commentators have suggested that is what Obama wanted all along, since Kadima and Labor are far more in line with Washington's policies of creating a Palestinian state in nearly all of Judea and Samaria with the eastern half of Jerusalem as its capital.

Legend Phyllis Schlafly on the formerly pro-life Dems

"It is naive for any elected official, especially one who describes himself as 'pro-life,' to expect that a promise to issue an Executive Order that reasserts the intentions of the Hyde Amendment will be fulfilled by the most pro-abortion president to ever sit in the White House. Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama's first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion."

"Not only would an Executive Order be rendered meaningless in the face of Congress passing legislation which actively provides for the massive expansion and funding of abortion services, but anyone who doubts the abortion tsunami which awaits this bill becoming law lives in a fantasy world."

"Barack Obama has lined every existing federal agency with the most dedicated pro-abortion ideologues, and we know that he will continue this pattern of pro-abortion appointments when it comes time for him to fill the over-100 bureaucracies created to administer his socialized health care program."

"Any formerly pro-life Democrat who casts a 'Yes' vote for this Senate health care bill tonight will be forever remembered as being among the deciding votes which facilitated the largest expansion of abortion services since Roe v. Wade."

"Mr. Stupak and his Democrat followers have now clarified that you cannot be pro-life and be a Democrat. If abortion was truly their biggest issue, they wouldn't willfully align themselves with the Party of Death."

"This vote will expose the myth of the 'pro-life Democrat.' With this single vote, the Democratic Party will divide our nation into the Party of Death and the Party of Life, and future elections will never be the same."
