The 16 days of Sarah Palin at CPAC: Day 10 2010 Again

This is the 10th of my series of Sarah Palin clips from CPAC 2014 & com­men­tary upon them:

Day 1: The Crowd
Day 2: The Entrance
Day 3: Dr. Seuss
Day 4: Why Sarah Feels Good
Day 5: Play­ing Pre­vent
Day 6: Sink­ing Ships
Day 7: Flex­i­bil­ity Pens & Putin
Day 8: Antic­i­pa­tion
Day 9: Don’t blow it

Yes­ter­day we talked about how unex­pected the win in Fl-​13 was, today lets remind folk about 2010.

If you are new to the story you might not remem­ber the days before 2010 when GOP stal­warts told us our only chance was to coop­er­ate with Barack Obama, to refuse to fight back against Barack Obama, to accept the changes that Barack Obama was offering.

The only two peo­ple who seemed to be in a fight­ing mood were Rush Lim­baugh & Sarah Palin.

It wasn’t til the Brown win that any of this started to change and as late as Jan­u­ary 8th 2010 (the elec­tion was the 19th) the Boston Phoenix ran this story which said (empha­sis mine)

In less than two weeks, when Mass­a­chu­setts vot­ers elect Martha Coak­ley to the US Sen­ate — let’s not pre­tend that Repub­li­can state sen­a­tor Scott Brown has any chance of pulling off the mon­u­men­tal upset — they will trig­ger a mas­sive domino effect that has the state’s polit­i­cal class buzzing with antic­i­pa­tion.

Even after Scott Brown won in Mass­a­chu­setts shock­ing the entire coun­try the MSM was in denial. As late as Octo­ber 2010 we were see­ing sto­ries like this:

And posts like this from Politico

Top Demo­c­ra­tic offi­cials are con­vinced, and even some Repub­li­cans pri­vately con­cede, that what’s hap­pen­ing is that party loy­al­ists are com­ing home and other vot­ers are begin­ning to assess both can­di­dates in indi­vid­ual races.

The early polls were really a gauge of people’s anger, but more recent polls are a gauge of people’s options,” Delaware Gov. and Demo­c­ra­tic Gov­er­nors Asso­ci­a­tion Chair­man Jack Markell told POLITICO.

What’s dri­ving Demo­c­ra­tic opti­mism is improv­ing polling num­bers — both in indi­vid­ual races and in generic indi­ca­tors — ramped-​up fundrais­ing and their field efforts.

It wasn’t until the One Nation & Jon Stew­art Rally crashed and burned that the MSM tuned their nar­ra­tive the day before the election:

That’s why these remarks by Sarah Palin’s remarks are so important

Sarah reminds us that you advance by mov­ing for­ward and being unafraid to fight.

In 2010 the GOP stepped back and let the Tea Party carry them over the fin­ish line, in 2012 the decided that the Tea Party was not needed for vic­tory and lost.

It’s 2014 and the GOP needs to decide if it wants to dance with the Tea Party that gave them the House major­ity. There is no rea­son why the GOP & the Tea Party work­ing together should not guar­an­tee huge GOP vic­to­ries win­ning seats in the house and cap­tur­ing the Senate.

If the GOP doesn’t real­ize this and decides it’s more impor­tant to defeat the Tea Party then the Democ­rats then will fool­ishly get their wish.

Top Democratic officials are convinced, and even some Republicans privately concede, that what’s happening is that party loyalists are coming home and other voters are beginning to assess both candidates in individual races.

“The early polls were really a gauge of people’s anger, but more recent polls are a gauge of people’s options,” Delaware Gov. and Democratic Governors Association Chairman Jack Markell told POLITICO.

What’s driving Democratic optimism is improving polling numbers — both in individual races and in generic indicators — ramped-up fundraising and their field efforts.
