Prior to Governor Palin’s much anticipated speech at CPAC today, she sat down for a brief interview with CNN and the New York Times. She reiterated her preference for an extended nominating process so that the candidates can be vetted. She also called on Mitt Romney to explain his record to conservatives or face an enthusiasm gap if he’s the nominee.
Note by TPE: On this topic, I totally agree with the Governor:
“People who start screaming that a brokered convention is the worst thing that could happen to the G.O.P., they have an agenda,” Ms. Palin said in an interview. “They have their own personal or political reasons, their own candidate who they would like to see protected away from a brokered convention.”
Now, on the CNN end, on Romney’s “severely conservative” statement:
In an interview with CNN and The New York Times before her speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Palin said she was confused by Romney’s declaration here on Friday that he was a “severely conservative Republican.”
“I wasn’t quite sure what the word ‘severely’ meant,” Palin said.
She said Romney and his two main rivals – Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich – should be given time to explain the flaws in their record until the Republican National Convention in August, when she said the nomination fight could ultimately be decided.
But Romney may have the hardest sale to make, she said, asking him to explain his “shifts in ideology” since he left the Massachusetts governorship.
Mitt Romney must be vetted on this issue. Vetted? Continue to be vetted? Yes, and by that I mean that I disagree with Rush Limbaugh and others on comments that Romney needs to be “pushed” to the right. If he feels it, he should not overstate it or emphasize to prove a point.
Governor Palin doesn’t have to prove it; just like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, they live it. I do believe that if Newt is elected as the candidate to beat Obama (now it’s a bit of a stretch) he will fix up the mess we’re in. Now it’s up to all four candidates to make their point on how they plan to reduce the deficit the United State has (Newt laid it out on his CPAC speech, Paul is quite vocal about it) but with Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, people need to do more digging because it’s quite elaborate.

I like Breitbart’s website, and how in the world he has it configured intrigues me. Since I am slowly getting “unshackled” by Sarah Palin, “The Palin Express” has a wide audience range where I may pull off something like his.
“The Palin Express” will morph slowly, but detach from the blog’s original intent.
I’ll keep you posted!
Damn, damn, damn! There goes the Palin/West 2012 ticket that I was salivating for! I hope that whoever ends up being the official GOP candidate, grabs this guy and put him in his/her ticket (Bachmann has not quit but she’s not off the race as I speak).
Thanks to Pennsylvanians 4 Palin!
Slate’s Dave Weigel posted that Stephen Bannon’s documentary “The Undefeated” on Sarah Palin will be released on July 15. The release of this movie starts in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. From there, it will trickle down to other key states.
Let’s be honest; this information has been out ever since we found out about the documentary and it definitely has flipped upside down the Republican elites and liberals alike. Bannon is making interview rounds, promoting the documentary and answering over and over why he felt compelled to turn several short documentaries in a two-hour movie.
Tomorrow we will see a statement from a “major theater chain” that is set to announce a nationwide distribution. If my gut is right, “The Undefeated” will get the movie trailer, followed quickly by the movie itself about two weeks later, and outside I will see a separate marquee sign with title, date and times. Sweet!
Andy Barr from POLITICO wrote that the movie director has also retail plans for “The Undefeated,” where Wal-Mart could be key. I will not post snippets of his piece because it does reek of POLITICO material; go ahead and read it for yourself. My conclusion: It’s very encouraging to see the positive feedback from several people that have seen it, the buzz that is generating within the political circles and the Internet. Positive or negative, the reality is that there is a movie about Sarah Palin; that this movie attempts to clear the air about events in the past that have tarnished her image while at the same time, show everybody that she can run a country.

GOP Establishment-Are you willing to give some, and take some? Or let the US Constitution fly by, ignoring what this president has done to this country that WE THE PEOPLE love so much?
GOP contenders: BE UNAFRAID. THE GAME IS ON!
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of the media?
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of confrontation?
Are the GOP possible candidates unable to engage?
Are the GOP possible candidates proven leaders with expertise with the military-and respected BY the military?
Are the GOP possible candidates salivating to take on Barack Obama, look him in the eye and tell him ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?
NO MORE! IT STARTS NOW AND PLAY HARD CORE CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTION FOR AMERICANS!
Liberal heads will explode in 3, 2, 1…
This time Hollywood has taken notice of Governor Palin, and so far I don’t know how close the script will be based on the book, “Game Change” which covered the 2008 elections. “Game Change” was not 100% accurate with information about the campaign, as claimed by Palin.
So far, here are the details:
Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore will portray the former Alaska governor in the project, which will chronicle Palin’s burst into the national scene as a surprise vice presidential candidate in 2008. Directing Game Change is Jay Roach, director of the Meet the Parents movies as well as the HBO film Recount, which examined the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election with a focus on the Florida recount.
Game Change is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book about the 2008 presidential elections and follows John McCain’s campaign from his selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed Recount, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.
As soon as more information starts trickling in, I will post more details. Stay tuned.
