Day By Day by Chris Muir

Sarah Palin and American voters care wit not what Ed Rollins, now a CNN media pundit has to say. Rollins who ran Ronald Reagan’s re-election campaign in 1984 and who lately ran Mike Huckabee’s 2008 failed Presidential campaign is flailing about as usual. He really does not have to remind us about Reagan’s past and his legacy.

Sarah Palin is NOT Ronald Reagan.

Does Sarah Palin hold the same or very similar views on the role of government?

You betcha.

I remind Ed Rollins and other “establishment” Republican types is that the 2012 Presidential nomination will be decided the old fashion way – by voting in elections. Everything else by the pundits, like Rollins, is nothing but HOT AIR.

Here is John McCain on Sarah Palin and Reagan:

AZ-Sen: Think John McCain is Against Illegal Immigration Amnesty?

Undocumented(illegal alien)students speak to Arizona Senator John McCain

If anyone thinks now that John McCain has beat back a challenge by a Republican challenger in an Arizona GOP Primary election is not for illegal immigrant amnesty, I think they have another thing coming.

Watch the video above and see the REAL John McCain.

Think McCain will vote to filibuster the Dream Act when Harry Reid brings it to the Senate next week?

Nope.

I think the next group of GOP Senators that will be targeted by Tea Party activists for GOP Primary defeats will be those who support the Dream Act.

AZ-Sen: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Calls John McCain a LIB

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Joe Arpaio, John McCain

Maricopa County, Arizona, Sherif Joe Arpaio is urging Arizona voters to throw Senator John McCain out of office in favor of GOP challenger, former Congressman J.D. Hayworth.

And, calls McCain the L-word: LIBERAL.

Maricopa Co. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is urging GOPers to shelve Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in favor of ex-Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R), a challenger attacking from the right, in a new letter sent to primary voters.

“Senator McCain has served this country admirably but it’s time to replace his moderate or even liberal positions on taxes, the border, social causes and big bank bailouts with a consistent conservative like J.D.,” Arpaio writes in the letter. “”I just wish Senator McCain had run as hard against Barack Obama as he is against a conservative like J.D. That could have prevented the harmful, liberal agenda we are all now suffering through.”

“Indeed, Senator McCain is already attacking J.D. by name in advertisements because [McCain] knows [Hayworth] is the type of exciting, principled conservative that excites people like you and me,” Arpaio adds. “And he knows that after years of running over Republican principles his entire career no election year conversion to our way of thinking will save his campaign from voters that want conservatives to be a part of the solution rather than part of the problem.”

This endorsement won’t make any difference this time around since McCain, unless he has health problems, should sail to easy re-election. Sarah Palin will give McCain cover from the right. But, in six years…..

Good ol’ Sheriff Joe never minces words, now does he?

Sarah Palin Supports John McCain “100 Percent” Despite Blacked Out Sunvisor

Posted 5 CommentsPosted in John McCain, Sarah Palin

This whole flap is pretty silly really but former Governor Palin issued a response to the story on TMZ.

Declaring that she “was honored and proud to run with him,” former Alaska governor Sarah Palin pushed back hard Wednesday against a report that she had disrespected Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) by blacking out his name on a sun visor she wore on vacation.

The website TMZ accused Palin of “a frontal attack on Sen. John McCain” during a Hawaii vacation this week: “Sarah chose to wear a visor from her campaign — a visor that was emblazoned with the former presidential candidate’s name … that is, until Palin redacted McCain’s name with a black marker.”

But Palin said in a statement to POLITICO that she was just trying to “be incognito” — to go unrecognized and shield her children and husband, Todd, from paparazzi.

The hotel where she was staying had to chase away five photographers, a friend said.

Palin said in the statement to POLITICO: “I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way. I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection. As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito.”

Well, the press is always trying to make a story and these stories sell. But, it is noteworthy tht Sarah Palin pushed back so hard and so quickly.

Carly Fiorina Endorsed by Eight GOP Senators in California U.S. Senate Race Against Barbara Boxer

Posted Posted in Carly Fiorina, John Kyl, John McCain, Tom Coburn

Carly Fiorina last night in San Diego last night speaking as part of her California U.S. Senate announcement tour

The endorsements are not really a surprise since I had this fundraising invitation last week. But, it does make the support offiicial.

carlyfiorinainvitenov17 Carly Fiorina Begins Fundraising for 2010 U.S. Senate Race

From the press release:

Support for United States Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina grew today as she earned the endorsements of eight Republican United States Senators including Tom Coburn, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, Jon Kyl, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski and Olympia Snowe.

“I am humbled to have earned the endorsement of each one of these distinguished Republican Senators. They are all dedicated public servants and it is a true honor to have their support. I look forward to working with each of these Senators to get our economy moving again and to restore fiscal accountability to Washington,” said Fiorina. “California is not getting the kind of representation it deserves in the United States Senate. In nearly 18 years, Barbara Boxer has only managed to get a handful of inconsequential bills signed into law and I don’t believe that is good enough for California. It’s time for a change.”

What is most interesting to me is that Fiorina is being supported by a broad base within the Republican Party. There are liberal Republican, moderate Republican and conservative Republican Senators from the East Coast to the Far West who are endorsing Carly and most importantly will help her raise money for her campaign.

Each Senator issued the following:

  • “One of Carly’s greatest strengths is that she has never served in elected office.  Her frame of reference was shaped by the real world, not politics.  Our nation is facing serious economic challenges because we keep rehiring the same failed career politicians who have proven themselves incapable of making hard choices.  Carly’s common sense and fiscal conservatism will be a welcome addition to the United State Senate.  I am glad to offer her my endorsement,” said Senator Tom Coburn, M.D.
  • “As a business leader and innovator, Carly Fiorina will bring great perspective to the United States Senate and she has my full support. She understands that Americans are concerned with the state of the economy and our expanding federal deficit and has the knowledge to help address those issues in a real way,” said Senator Susan Collins.
  • “Carly’s experience as a business leader has given her the knowledge and tools to help craft policy that will get our economy moving again. There is too much waste in Washington and we need leaders like Carly who can apply what they have learned in the business world to government. She is the best choice for Californians,” said Senator Lindsey Graham.
  • “During these tough economic times it is critical that we have leaders who can bring a dedication to fiscal discipline to Washington, and Carly is exactly that kind of leader. I am proud to endorse Carly Fiorina for Senate,” said Senator Jon Kyl.
  • “Carly Fiorina is a visionary Republican leader and I am proud to endorse her to represent the people of California as their next United States Senator. Carly is an outstanding business leader and I benefited from her no-nonsense way of getting things done when she served on my campaign last year. Carly dedicated her time, energy and intelligence to our cause working with Republicans at every level across the country,” said Senator John McCain.
  • “I believe that Carly has what it takes to serve as a U.S. Senator. She will serve the people of California and this nation with integrity, honesty and will fight each and every day to ensure that California is getting the kind of representation it deserves. I am proud to endorse Carly Fiorina,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
  • “Carly is a strong Republican candidate who will put ego aside, reach across the aisle and develop real solutions to the problems we are facing. Her style of innovative leadership and ability to bring people together is desperately needed in Washington. I hope the people of California send Carly to the U.S. Senate next November,” said Senator Lisa Murkowski.
  • “Carly will help us create policies that will put Californians and all Americans back to work. Washington needs business leaders with experience who can help us restore fiscal accountability and get our financial house back in order. I am pleased to endorse Carly and look forward to working to help send her to Washington, DC,” said Senator Olympia Snowe.

And, three of the four Republican women Senators have quickly endorsed Fiorina. 

The fundraising potenital of all of these Senators will translate into millions of dollars for campaign ads to use in the GOP contested primary election against Chuck DeVore and later in the general election.
