Sarah Palin PAC is Formed

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has started a new political action commitee called SarahPAC to raise funds.

A spokeswoman for the PAC said that it was launched about five hours ago to help the former vice presidential candidate maintain connections across the country. She said it was too early to tell whether Palin will run in 2012.

The website says that the PAC is "dedicated to building America's future, supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation."

Sen. John McCain was recently asked whether he regretted picking Palin as his running mate, and he said, "I think the world of Sarah Palin."

Comments

Ms. Palin is does not have the qualifications to be president in the post-Bush economic disaster that his administration has left. Sarah is going to help cut out government "overspending and waste". It is easier when the State of Alaska receives $1.84 for every taxpayer dollar contributed in taxes. I live in California, a state that only receives back only $0.78 for every dollar paid in taxes to the Federal Government. When the Bridge to Nowhere was cancelled, did Palin return the unspent funds? No, she spent it on her personal pork barrel projects.

Where do the Larry Lins of this world come up with this stuff? Governor Palin if far and away more qualified that the character we just elected. I would love to see Gov. Palin as our first woman in the whitehouse.

The Congresswoman from California (Pelosi) is giving us more pork than we can handle, can we fix that?

Mr. greg peterson, are you a torahphobic christian perhaps? I realize some people in small towns have small-minded churches like that. They used to have a bunch of them in germany too and they'd have ridiculed Palin too.

I live in Juneau Alaska. Sara Palin should not run for anything. She does not have what it takes, let alone being a Governor of Alaska. There are a lot questions regarding the Trooper Gate that is still not solved.

Sara Palin needs to rethink this whole thing, she is acting more like a Diva than a Governor at this point.

I am urging everyone to email her and tell her she should not run for anything!

Sarah Palin is the most admirable woman of this era in America..!! She is a mother, grandmother, intelligent, educated, experienced and creates more passion from voters than any woman in politics. She is enviable. Tina Fey has made her a project as well as made a fortune fom her jealousy-driven comic imitations. Women who say they "dont like" her are envious. Katie Couric is a prime example. She has more experience in government than Obama, and more qualified than most representatives and Governor's.
I pray that Sarah's policies and ideas will be lisened to and taken seriously. She is a great role model!!!!!!

Amazing. Both posts are hateful and vitriolic, and are equally a condemnation of our newly-elected president and the majority of his cabinet member. There is little experience sitting now in the Oval Office, thoug That One is doing little to disspell the Messianic laudits piled upon him.

Reality frightens people who live inside their heads. Those who oppose Sarah Palin on any grounds save policy and practice remain safely within the confines of their craniums.

I find it unbelievable that Sarah Palin is able to raise money for her to run for President in 2012. This is the same thing Hillary did before she began her bid for the Presidency, except Hillary was and still is intelligent, educated, worldly and highly qualified for the position as President. Sarah Palin's qualifications - she is attactive, but very much a simpleton, dim and out of touch with reality.

What's with all the Sarah haters? If liberals hate her that much then they are really afraid of Sarah. She's has a tremendous gift for public speaking and she is beautiful. I think that qualifies her in the new standards we set for Barak. Sarah is a real conservative who lives out her convictions. And teh media hates her. That seals the deal for me. Please run Sarah. Please .

We need Sarah Palin in 2012 to cleanup the mess that Barak Obama is going to make of the sanctity of life and the compromise of America as we know it.

I don't necessarily think this means a run at the White House in 2012. No one knows, and I don't think she's made up her mind. I think a lot depends on the political landscape over the next two years, and how things are going in Alaska, as well as, with her family.

This move from what I have heard will help to keep political activity separate from her state duties. She has been asked to travel, give speeches, support candidates, etc. A PAC will help her do that.

I think that Governor Palin in four years or eight will make a great national candidate. She's learned from the previous run. Those who deem her unintelligent have not gotten to know her well, and quite frankly listen to the MSM too much and are basing their opinion on the Couric and Gibson interviews which were cut to pieces in the editing room. Read the full transcripts if you don't believe me. Also those tend to latch on to disgruntled McCain staffers who want to throw her under the bus. Let's never mind that ever allegation they have made has been debunked.

She is still wildly popular, and I think has much to contribute to the Republican Party even if she doesn't run and I for one am glad she's sticking around.

Hucksters prey on Christianity. Those who want to believe with an open heart.
A PAC is a slush fund without checks and balances, legal money laundering.
I see more clothes in trash bags...Mrs. Palin has figured out every way possible to bilk Alaska, now it´s nationwide.
The people on TEAMSARAH sound like love sick teenagers, they will learn the hard way, I fear.

Just a small PS to LARRY LINN..your LITTLE world sounds very nice, indeed! Yours is NOT small minded!

The long knives are out for Sarah Palin. The leftist dems are terrified of her candidacy, as the first two posts on this article will attest. As to qualifications: They dwarf Barry Obama's, they dwarf Hillary Clinton, and they dwarf Bill Clinton's (prior to his taking the White House.) She will be great for this country and I have been chomping at the bit to send her her money.

Glad to see the comedians are out in force. Sarah Palin shouldn't have got as far as the PTA far less the Governor's mansion. She has no intellectual curiosity at all. Her grasp of the issues that face the US and the World is abysmal. The only good thing about her thinking of running is that she could not avoid the Sunday talk shows as she so disgracefully did in the election campaign. For those of you who think that Tina Fey's caricature was off...you need to watch Palin's interviews with Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson very very closely.

Sure, the President, like Gov. Palin, is not unattractive and has an engaging talent for public speaking, but unlike Gov. Palin, Pres. Obama really is deeply and broadly educated. He was also a professor at a well regarded and conservative reputation school. Not to mention that he was an editor of an influential scholarly journal. That's educated.

I work at a large university. Many professors are not as deeply and broadly educated as the President, let alone us four years of second or third rank college and then right to work types, like the Gov. and me.

Gov. Palin never made education important in her life. I can understand that, life happens and a good education isn't easy to come by, even for those with a passion to study. But, comparing her indifferent, catch as catch can education with the President's...well, she's not going to come off well there. She's adequately literate, and not much more. Though she has a college degree, she doesn't seem to have the truly educated person's casual skepticism and delight in learning that was thought to be true, likely isn't.

Liberals are not "afraid" of Gov. Palin, they're appalled at the depth of her immorality, and she has given them good reason to be so. Morality is much more than not cheating on your spouse and not stealing from the petty cash box. Morality, I think, is a radical understanding and application of the Golden Rule. Liberals sometimes actually "get" it, and sometimes bungle it when they do, moderates sometimes grit their teeth and do it anyway, conservatives in general seem clueless and fearful of morality, as I understand morality, anyway. Would that I be a more moral person, but I'm easily distracted.

To fill with consternation or dismay.

The President, in a much more populated state, was in state level (1997 to 2004) and federal government levels (2005 to present) much longer than Gov. Palin (chair of state commission for 2003-2004 and Gov. 2006 to present).

The Gov. started in city council in 1992, but the President was a civil rights attorney, which work with all levels of government as well as the private sector.

While small town councils and mayoralships are great political training and invaluable public service...that's not quite the same thing as serving three terms in the Illinois state house. If small town mayor is "tech school," the Illinois state house is "Marine boot camp."

I don't understand the "torahphobic Christian" remark, but I would be fascinated to learn more.

As to the Torah, I generally go with my Reform movement Jewish relatives on that. They've studied it at a deeper level than I, and in Hebrew. Sometimes, you just have to go with trusted sources.

The first thing that strikes me about Sarah Palin is that she is genuine. She is the real thing. What you see is what you get. She embodies all the pioneer American virtues that Barack Obama likes to talk about but never does anything about. If we can survive four years of Obama in the White House (and I'm not at all sure that we can) we will have one last chance to elect a genuine American to replace him. If we flub that opportunity, I don't think we'll be given another chance.

Sarah Palin is a person whom some like and some really dislike. Personally, I don't think she has what it takes to be president, but we're a long way from having to make that judgment. If she runs, the onus is on her to persuade the American people and if she runs for president like she ran for vice-president, she won't pull it off.

I'm a college student at a very conservative college in Georgia. I consider myself an avid conservative, but Sarah Palin should not be the first female president to grace the White House. In fact, this last year of proves her failure to win the VP candidacy as McCain's right hand woman is as close as America can handle. We, as a country are in the biggest deficit since the Great Depression. Unemployment rates are skyrocketing, citizens are being evicted from their homes because they can not pay their rent or mortgages, we are in an unending war and on the verge of another. This is not the time to get simplified or find your down-home roots. I've read in previous posts that the Dems don't like Palin because she is a threat. I think this is true. Sarah Palin is a threat; she is a threat to the free America we know and live in now. Small mindedness and the girl next door attitude are not going to bring this country back to its rightful place as leader of the free world. As for those who think Sarah Palin is enviable, they are right. It is a gift to be able to get a small nation of people to support your ideas. Then again, Hitler had the same effect. To those who refer to President Obama as "that one" or "that character", i urge you to join the rest of society in the 21st century and leave the olden days of slavery and bigotry behind. Being from a small town is a wonderful thing. I'm from a small Souhtern town and I'm proud of it. But, until the America and a vast number of its citizens take that first step into the future and let the masks of prejudice and stereotypes behind, America will never amount to the great nation she was designed to be. And one last thing, if you are going to talk about someone, whether in a positive or negative way, please know who to spell that person's name.

Thank you.

For some reason the media didn't want Hillary and jumped at the chance to pit Obama against her. Than panic set in when Palin showed up and the media went after Palin. What in God's name scares the seculars, humanists and liberals about Palin. It can't be not killing the unborn, a stage of life as well as the teenager stage and the senior stage of life, or talking to the Christians of the Sudan instead of placating the Muslims who kill every thing, person and religion opposed to them. Hillary did nothing for NY but take credit for what others did, so I didn't want her anyway as president. The hate shown for a man healthier than me as being too old for the presidency in the medias' eye than showed up. Incidently, the clothes for Palin or any politician running for president is budgeted into their cmapaign funds and the jerks who are riding about this know it. That shows that Palin is more intelligent than they are and besides she looked very busineeslike in them.She dresses like me, a middle management woman. Any person who's a governor is higher than a senator. Hillary proved that in NYState. She was ignored by the governor and got nothing for us as a result. Yay Palin.

Sarah needs an education if she hopes ever to be president. 2012 is too soon. 2016 would be better. In the meantime, she needs to surround herself with smart people, visit NY and Washington A LOT, partner more with Pacific Rim countries, and read, read, read. There's a lot to admire in Sarah Palin, but her public policy weaknesses are painfully plain.

These comments make bizarre reading. Apart from a few standout sensible and logical comments (hats off to Mr Petersen), they're frighteningly bizarre.

I think liberals would love for Sarah to run in 2012 and again in 2016 and again in 2020 and for as long as she can raise the funds required to do so. They are not afraid of her for she only serves to further narrow the conservative base.

To suggest they are afraid is truly bizarre.

Well I not only believe that Sarah Palin IS as able to run this country as our current president if not more, but I also believe that if we still have anything that resembles a free country in 2012 she will run and be elected! I have already made the first of what I plan to be many contributions to her cause this morning.


Anything worth having will be worth paying for- if you won't pay for it yourself you really don't need it.

Sarah Palin may not be the MOST qualified, the MOST acceptable to the media, the MOST capable, but one thing is sure, she is the MOST unusual candidate we have ever had and will receive my vote if she continues to serve as she has. I think she has MORE to offer than Pelosi and Obama combined, MORE than McCain could have given us, and MORE of what the American people have stood for in the past and, I believe. MORE of what we need today. She has been attacked and has stood firmly through MOST of the insults hurled at her, even tho they have been MORE than any other candidate in my memory has received! Thanks, Sarah!

The perfect storm is brewing. The corrupt liberal MSM is clueless. The wheels went into motion back in September. SarahPAC went online. The corrupt MSM continue to bash and bash like school bullies and now they can’t understand how little nobody like Gov. Palin would be invited to attend a gathering of the political elite? Gov. Palin will walk away with millions for her PAC. In 2010, wherever she campaigns that conservative will win. The perfect storm is brewing. The economy, the storm, the economy! The perfect storm is brewing.

I'm no love sick teenager, and I am no liberal. The thought of this so called new Main Stream America makes me sick. The fact that all those liberals call us so call homophobics small and closed minded is a testament to just how weak they are. I can't stand the fact how those gay men expcet us morally sound people to except sodomy as an excepted natural act done between two men. There is nothing natural about it, PERIOD. It is sick, disgusting and absolutely perverted. If you want to be gay, fine, but why do they try to force it down our throats ( no pun intended) and and then because we oppose it, we're small minded. Wake up America, forcing people to believe in something sends them in the other direction. Christians share their point of view but never force peolpe to believe and them ridicule them when they don't. Get over yourselves already and stop with "in your face approach" to your sick perversions.

What a party of family values when a mother of 5 small children runs for president - it just serves to affirm the secular view that family life is a waste.

Sarah Palin was just a fashion icon and American refuse their policies.

Just because of the hatred /fear of Sara Palin. I would love to see her as president. If they are that much against her means that she IS the right choice.

I always consider democrats are backwards. The only reason they get in is because the republicans have not lived up to their potential. Not because they have ideas or smarter. like they like to think. After this last election I will NEVER vote for a democrat. I am not for Obama. I don't have to act like a democrat and call him names and knock him down. Just let him ruin himself.

Liberal, conservative, republican, democrat, independent!! Lord help us all!! We are all in big trouble! No wonder we are facing such hard times with all the STRIFE in the CHRISTIAN body! It is truly hard to believe this is a Christian website with Christian people who profess the love of Jesus Christ! God help us all!! It's not for government to cure our ills. It is the CHURCH (you, the body of Christ) that has failed this nation! If we were manifesting the GREATEST GIFT, we would not be concerned about Gov. Palin or Pres. Obama.

Listen up Ann. I see your point, but here on earth where we interact with others, we need to know what we are up against. The liberal agenda is very hateful and damaging to our belief system. They attack Christianity with a vengance. We have to fight back. We can not sit back and let them run a muck over what we stand for. If you watch Fox News you would know what I am talking about. Life is rough and it is stupid for you to think that we should live in this make believe world that everything is lolly pops and ice cream. The harsh reality is it is not that way. Fox News is the only true and acurate News out there. The reporters confess thier faith and always report things those other liberal news sources won't. Listen to Hank Hanagraph or Moody Radio. Any good Christian resource should keep you in the know of what we are up against. If the liberals had their way, there would be no more Church, more abortions than there already are, and same sex marriage would be out of control. You need to wake up as so does so many Americans. Stay in the fight my good people and never let them grind us into dust so we blow away. Band together and build our house on the rock, not in sand. For we all know what happens when you build on sand instead of a rock.

I'm looking for the sarah palin T-shirts. I am so thankful for women like. Women who can handle a mans world can handle anything, even a little cat fight between woman. SARAH 1012.

I believe this country is changing into a disaster....Sarah must stand strong and really not become part of our political norm. Where are all our true conservatives? Our true Constitutionalists? People like Newt and Sarah have to run together in 2012 and give us a shot at taking the country back to it's roots.

As I read many of the comments about Governor Palin, I am even more convinced that she is exactly what this country needs as a leader. As a general rule I have not been in favor of women in politics and Hillary Clinton is a prime example of why I have denied my support. Sarah Palin has appeared, as one of the few politicians in years, with a definite set of values and principals. I am a conservative who has voted Republician 90% of the time. I am 61 years of age and I have become increasingly frustrated, not only with John McCain, but with the Republician Party in general because I no longer understand what the Party stands for. John McCain refused to oppose Geo. W. who history will record as one of the worst Presidents ever. Geo. W's place in history will not be because he lied about Iraq, which he surely did, or because he encouraged regulators to ignore the illegal practices of big business which has brought this great nation to the brink of another Depression. Geo. W's corruption of the Department of Justice under Alberto Gonzales has destroyed the greatest protection of freedom that we as Americans have. At least I know many of the principals for which Governor Palin stands. I cannot say that for John McCain. Barack Obama has taken an easy stand and a typically Democratic Party stand: if there is a problem throw money at it and never mind who is going to repay that money. I hope I have the chance to vote for Sarah Palin again without the albatross of John McCain being around her neck.

I'm glad Mrs. Palin stood up to Letterman about the comment he made about her daughter.
I would like to see her become more involved with helping our country with our freedoms and rights. Clean up the media and the T.V. program's language and help people to learn to discern the truth.

I really don't see her strong enough to be a president. I think she would be better to spend this money on things that are more realistic for her.

It's good that a mom will stand up for her daughter but a president needs to stand up for all daughters and I don't see her that way.

I shall pray for her and her family.

Dear Governor Palin, I admire your courage and your hope for an independent, free America. It is my hope that you center the Republican Party, with your voice, networking and collaborative skills. Long term the Republican Party needs to become strategic in the global environmental and financial forum. We have lost our competitive edge in technology and science, cornerstone capitalistic endeavors that create jobs and investments in America.
With the financial meltdown followed by unbridled spending and social programs, I am greatly concerned that the Federal Reserve is operating on a pyramid type arrangement that just moves money around, while becoming more and more in debt. In the political book Animal Farm, I liked the hardworking horse who believed in something good. In America it is all about checks and balances.
Choose main stream, intelligent advisors who have a technological background to savy your voice and bring constituents together. I think the only person who can pound the Democratic party status quo more than Cheney, is yourself with straight talk. Talk with Colin Powell about his hopes for America. Ask Condi Rice and Ridge about the foreign and domestic security issues. Help be a voice for the softspoken head of the Repulican Party, Micheal Steele. Value his political experience in the pariah of Washington Politics.
As a mother do protect your family similiar to the strategy Maria Shriver has used for her family. Think about how crazy the media was over Priscilla Presileys daughter. The media and public may be ruthless and your children deserve a childhood, you deserve a family life too.
My hope is for a great, strong independent America with a competitive informed political party where if you work hard, you will get ahead dream. Not the political path of control and we have money to give away come be dependent on us, political party. Best regards and Happy Fourth of July, T

Sarah, you need to hire a couple of pit bulls to go after the low class white trash out there that thinks you and your family are fair game for all the hate and bad manners that there white trash parents taught them. You are an honest politician and that does not fit with the clowns , liars and thieves in Washington. They are afraid of you, so again hire some pit bulls and do not respond to your critics yourself. Let your pit bulls fight aggresively for you and you stay above the fray. You are an AMERICAN and have every right to run for any office in the public arena you choose.

People keep saying Sarah Palin does not have the experience to be PresidenT. Sarah Palin has more excecutive experience than community organizer and senator for 30 days Obama had. She has actually had to put a budget together every year in Alaska. Sarah has more experience than the three bozo's she was running with. She is also the only Governor in the country who was comander of the military in her state because of the proximity to Russia. She gets security briefings. Wake up you morons. sHE IS AN AMERICAN AND HAS WORKED HARD FOR HER STATE AND DOES NOT DESERVE YOUR ATTITUDE.

Sarah -
You are the biggest liar of all. You must belong to another Christian religion than I have been all my life. You are a power hungry, misguided evil woman.

Remember those little blue/orange bracelets with WWJD on them. They were to remember us about Jesus. WHAT WOULD JESUS DO -- do you really think He would be screaming into the crowds saying, "Just Say No!!!" about working to help MILLIONS of people get healthcare?!!! YOU STARTED THE LIE ABOUT DEATH PANELS to scare the elderly.

Sarah -- God knows. You are a money-hungry woman - I think you are one of the false prophets the Bible warned us about.

As a Christian and a great admirer of the Palin family I believe we need to let GOD fight the corruption in our nation for us an we should do our part by praying that the leaders of our great nation will turn to Him or be removed. Politics isnt the answer and we put to much faith in corrupt education when we as Christians have the most powerful weapon on earth PRAYER.

Sarah
Please run in 2012. We need common sense in our country. We need to have our own power sources and can do that with the right leadership. The working people want to take back America. The government needs to get out of the way...Less government, means more jobs. Drill, drill, drill! No more imported oil and gas!

I believe,Sarah Palin had second thoughts as to her qualifications when first entering the McCain camp. Follow those feelings as to the education of a pioneer. Although I support no particular religion, I can and will support you for president, my heart brings me to this. We share the idea of bringing together those involved to an awareness of all issues and concluding from there as a voting party. This is one of the rocks I see your administration built on. With this you will need no worry of revocation, for it will be taught by those who enacted it and brought down through generations.
Kudos for standing strong against the media. Let your actions speak volumes. The lawyers can handle the rest. The naysayer is uneducated and lazy, merely a stumbling block. Always remember the courage and willingness to serve, although consuming the rewards go on as history.
A bit forward perhaps, sincere as the hands that have earned this life through hopes of a better tomorrow.

So this must not be her than:

Well, this is very much interesting indeed. Would love to read a little more of this. Good post. Thanks for the heads-up.
