During a campaign…getting the message out through local media could be a big key I think. Answering questions like this, even giving interviews to some well known local people in key areas. Just an idea.
That is exactly what she is doing, giving the local media their due, not overshadowed or muscled aside by the national media.
Yes, she is talking to the local media; they are more likely to write a positive story as most local citizens are always excited and proud to have a famous person v isit their town.
Great job Sarah……Piper with no words?……..amazing
That video is GOLD. This is the Sarah Palin who is going to barnstorm America wooing voters and the media one person at a time. I’ve heard very bright folks in the Palin blogosphere predict that the Governor could win the presidency in a 49-state landslide. Seeing a video like this, I’m inclined to believe them.
Piper had to pay for her shoulder-check of the press. HA!
Do you think Piper is having fun? She looks annoyed. (Wow, is she ever growing up !) In a couple of shots, I thought she had some friends (cousins?) with her. No Willow on the trip?
Yep…she does look a little annoyed, although this looks like the flowers were a little "punishment/I’m sorry" for her aggressiveness with he MSM lately…and she wasn’t liking it. After her refusal with the flowers, I’m sure once they got into the car, strong words were given.
i’m on piper’s side, i like the fact that she pushed the paparazzi out of the way. i hope sarah’s not too hard on her, piper’s just trying to be protective! lol! she’s a bodyguard…
Well being a "bodyguard" is not Piper’s job. Piper is what 10?….much too young to be pushing adults.
I agree….she’s might be a wee bit aggrevated that her vaca is turning out like this….then again, she’s getting to that age when nothing with your parents is "fun".
In a video clip from yesterday, a rude reporter put his elbow in Piper’s face as he threw a microphone in Sarah’s. The reporters are the ones who need to show a little respect, especially for a 10 year old.
Actually at 10 they are fine with doing Vacations with the Parents. One of the last years for this. Willow? Not so much. Teenagers want to hang out with kids.
Agreed! I liked it, and at that age they are very impressionable so I hope Sarah is not too upset about it. Well its a learning experience.
Me Too! Piper Rules! I loved the way she push the camera guys back to give Mom room to walk! I’m sure that when they got in the SUV Sarah was like "see that wasn’t that bad, and we fooled them, like I really didn’t approve of my best little buddy protecting me!
Ah, just a soft whisper to mind her manners? No doubt Piper on this trip is grateful that she had this opportunity to be with her family on this wonderful learning experience. Later on when they move to the WH, she will reflect mostly on the exciting, entertaining and seeing the wonderful sites she’s been, and of course the not so pleasant occasions and moments of mama’s experiences; but will forget those times she was reprimanded.of mis-steps, she rather not talked about.
Go Ms.Piper! you are the numero one, front and center guard. I applaud your courage.
I think Piper was just shy.
Pipers not shy she just does’nt tolerate crap, wonder where she got that personality trait? Did’nt Todd mention the family is ready?
YOU SAID THAT! GO PIPER!
Willow is on the trip. She and Piper slipped right past me in the Marriott parking lot in Gettysburg. I was looking at these two girls, and all of the sudden I was like, "Hey I know you."
I will say this, Piper is always at Mama’s side. That’s cute.
Amazing, isn’t it, that we can not respond to something we know when it’s right in front of us. Forensic investigators know lots of stuff like this that is opposite of what everybody thinks. For example, eyewitness testimony is the least reliable direct evidence.
I read Willow had gone back to alaska to work. Somewhere.
Willow’s been sighted at a couple of stops.
Piper looks like she will have a hard time living in the White House. Not like the Obama daughters that they were dreaming with power, big rooms, big vacations and fame since 2007.
Piper will make new friends and adjust like all other kids when a family makes a big move. Don’t underestimate Piper.
There’s been some pics of Willow. question is, where’s Trig? Might be he’s with Willow a lot?
Wife and I were talking about this at lunch and we speculate that Sarah’s family concerns center around Trig and the effects of a campaign on him. of course, we agreed she really couldn’t have stood so strong nor make a run without Trig being gifted to her in the first place.
Trig is the Palin’s secret weapon! :)
Just our ramblings.
Trig will be fine. He has the best of care. He’s been hitting the road with Sarah since he was born.
My guess is that, for this first trail leg of the trip, Trig is staying with his grandparents (Todd’s mom & dad) as he did on one of the SP’s Alaska show. They wanted to test the waters to see how it might go. Another reason why they will be heading home after this first leg.
Piper’s having fun. She seemed to really enjoy some of the historical sites.
I think she finds the pressers boring and annoying. What kid wouldn’t?
Piper is tremendously media savvy, and she does not like them. She runs interference like a good blocker.
even though we all wished we were Piper when she did that as a parent Sarah knows that Piper cannot be doing that and Sarah is an excellent Mom!
Bristol, Willow and Track="Hell yeah our mom president!"
Piper= "I don’t know mom. Can you live in Wassilla as president?"
Just thinking the cub is smart and can sense may be danger lurking Just following her instincts and obviously will protect/ shield her mama too.
Wonder how much Piper will charge if I hire her as my shield too. -:)
Piper, real class.
I like it – good stuff! It is wonderful to see Governor Palin jumping in and offering to answer a few questions in these situations, on the fly – and as always, with a big happy smile and a sharp, clear response! She is really in her element – I want more!
Mesmerizes every one with her Mona Lisa smile and a winning desposition. She has a built- in magnet, others can only wish they’d have that too. Who can not be drawn gaga-goo-goo by her presence. Wait, even when she is not present some dream about and wish she was in their midst?
Check this little tidbit out….
"Palin says she is meeting with bosses at Fox before departing NYC"
Contract talks (?) or perhaps Governor Palin will speak to Fox about their nasty "tone" toward her as of late. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall?
This site is starting to sound like a bunch of groupies! Oh, wait…
Groupies….in 60′s terminology….were girls who wanted to have sex with rock stars….or with people around them…to gain access to the rock star….so she could have sex with him!!!
Are we groupies?? Are we groupies for Sarah Palin??
Do we want to………..????
Will NOT even TOUCH that (pardon the pun!!))!!!
LOL LOL LOL
Sorry to have agitated you. :)
what? ohh i wanna know more
Sarah, tell Fox to take this job and shove it!
i could be wrong but didnt perry pimp and/or sign in a a texas state version of the dream act? if he did, i’ve got major problems with him anywhere near a palin ticket
I think Perry has been back and forth on this issue thru out his term as Governor. Most recently he does not support it.
Sarah has mentioned his name twice on this "bus tour" so far,…without "prompting".
Makes me wonder.
me too. thats why i mentioned it. i need way more info about perry before i’d be ok with that guy. he’s shady
really, palin/west is the only one for me
yeah i’m tired of the perry talk. i barely know anything about him. i don’t know what he sounds like and barely know what he even looks like!! and i’m a follower of political news!! people that follow political news barely know him, let alone the majority of america who doesn’t follow political news. have fun trying to get palin’s amount of name recogition!!
Perry is the longest-serving chief executive in Texas’ history (and a hugely successful and popular Governor) and a politician who has never lost an election, he is an important figure and especially well known for his pro-States-rights positions. Perry is also the current Chairman of the Republican Governors Association. His recent book, “Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington” outlines his beliefs pretty well.
I believe that he and Governor Palin do have a lot in common and do have a common respect for one another – they have held joint events in Texas several times. I think the recent buzz about Rick Perry running for the nomination is pretty silly – he is VERY unlikely to, but I do understand why Sarah praises him and why she might (although I think she can do better) consider him for her VP short list when the time comes. He is an important ally if nothing else.
Texas is still a Rep. State–Perry would not be an asset were Gov. Palin to toss the hat in the ring and win the primaries. I voted for him, but know there is much negative about him. Heck, the Bush backing of Kay Baily H. should speak volumes, even tho he was Geo. W’s Lt. Gov.
True! They found out that he can think for himself and not always the way they want. I like Perry.
Gov Perry is BURNED. Bush’s LT Governor, wants sesesion from the states, loves student bouchers….not gonna happen.
I like Perry…..and would love to see a Palin-Perry ticket!! Anyone in office as long as he’s been is bound to have done or said things deemed controversial. But he’s a proven winner, he’s handsome (very important in this media age), he likes Sarah a lot (and vice versa), he knows Sarah since her Governor days, and she campaigned for him last year. One of the best anecdotes about Sarah is when she related how she was at an oil and gas conference with Perry, and how she had to cut out early. She was only hours away from giving birth to Trig!!! Funny…and heartwarming…story!!!
I doubt he’ll enter the race…and he’s said he wants to finish his career in Texas…but when Sarah gets the nomination next year…….when, not if!!!!…….I think he’d think long and hard about joining a President Palin in the White House!!!
Sarah is showing her political instincts……deflect to Perry because she knows he’s not running.It takes some pressure off her.
I think Gov. Palin is aware his name has been mentioned and it behooves her to acknowledge she is aware. Keeps the MSM from throwing that up in her face since she has previously mentioned the friendship which exists.
Not exactly a "Dream Act", but it is troubling – - – Perry signed this into law in 2001 – The bIll provides in-state tuition rates for illegals who meet certain requirements. Personally, I think that this should and probably will be thrown out at some point – - –
This article describes it pretty well….
I am not an illegal alien supporter but is everyone saying that the sins of the parents should be vested on the children? I’m not sure that fits with the personal responsibility standard we profess.
In short, there is a difference between illegal entry and squatting and finding out long after birth that he/she is squatting.
That is why we need to end the practice of giving citizenship to the children of illegals.
That is a different issue. The issue I make is those children who only know America. We cannot morally pretend that their status is their own responsibility. I don’t think they should be given any more than anybody else but the notion of treating them like border jumpers offends me. Note that if they were born here then there is no legal problem because they are citizens. Another stupid policy but it is what it is.
Do I have a solution? Not really, I just know that we have to answer to a higher power for how we treat them.
Sure its a passionate issue but the parents are the ones who are responsible. The point is to remove the temptation for parents to use their children in that way.
When the Dream Act was promoted by the state run media, there was a picture of a college graduate whose parents were illegal immigrants. The graduate was not born in the US either. She text under her picture was that she had two degrees.
Now the supporters like to portray illegal immigrants as poor, hard working and trying to achieve prosperity.
I am an analytical person so I asked how could this poor illegal alien whose parents are illegal aliens pay for two college degrees? Even if you acquire a loan, you have to go through FAFSA and provide your SSN. State funded grants and scholarships meant for citizens of that state?
Illegal aliens are sucking the life out of social service programs. Who is paying for these programs? Taxpayers. Every American has a sob story. We have to refuse to get caught up in emotionalism. We can’t afford it anymore.
With all due respect, your example is different than my hypothesis.
How does someone not know they are squatting..especially when they utilize services? Such as hospital visits and school entrances of any age. We live in a society where tax records and SSN are heavily used. What I am saying is that illegal alien parents are using services at no cost that are granted to taxpaying citizens and their children.
America has been making unfair allowances for the children of illegal aliens and we are in a fix because of the federally funded social services expended on them.
Didn’t Huckabee do something similar when he was gov of Arkansas?
Whoa there. States powers are a whole different creature than federal powers. I’d have to see the vote breakdown on the bill (Rs v Ds) before I could say yea or nay.
No amnesty via-a-vis "Dream Act" (aka d-rat voter registration.
Deport ALL ILLEGALS so they can get in line and do it LEGALLY like all LEGAL immigrants in the past & present.
Its not feasible to deport illegals today for they just cross again in a couple of days. They need to self deport through enforcement. If they can’t get a job here they will be forced to go home. The problem is many companies, liberal states and this administration support illegal labor. The recent ruling by the Supreme Court was a step in the right direction. I have always been in favor of temporarily militarizing our southern border to get it under control and secured. Don’t expect anything major until after 2012.
yup. cut off their hand outs, free education, free health care and those criminals will deport themselves. and secure the border
Enforce the laws that illegal immigrants cannot work here. They will leave in droves. Sarah will have to fight many entrenched powers like the Chamber of Commerce who profit off of illegal workers.
Definitely deport illegals who are criminals and repeat offenders asap!
Secure the border and promote social and economic discipline in Mexico. Its called tough love.
That is a natural reaction. However, deporting the approximate 12 million illegals would
not be doable. And to tell the truth, we are all complicit. We elected politicians who let
this happen originally, let it continue on and we, the people, did not police our politicians
and stop it. Now we have to deal with it. We should deport all the ones in jail for a start.
We need to patrol the border, put up fences, whatever works. Illegals that have jobs need
to pay a fine; attend citizen classes and show that they are productive citizens. Perhaps the
employers who hire illegals need to pay a fine as well.
If we put in place a good system to handle the issue, many will go back to Mexico anyways
because they either work for cash or don’t work at all. Once the freebies end, they will leave.
Then there are the children. That will be the toughest decision. They should either go back
to Mexico with their parents or? What a mess.
PS – I was at a soccer game over the weekend where the other team was all hispanic.
Not one of them – the coaches, players, parents spoke English. This is one of my biggest gripes.
Close the border, stop the flow. Then we can discuss what to do about the 12 million illegals. Any attempt to excuse them at this time will increase the flow. I suspect that, in the end, those with no criminal records, jobs, families etc. will have some path, but that should be a subject for another day, not the first thing anyone talks about.
The first thing should be the drug cartels who have established an armed beachhead in our country.
Deportation of 12 million illegals IS doable….secure the border first…deport immediately all illegals caught without legal authorization to be in this country legally. Make it so tough on them that they return to Mexico or what ever country they originated from. At the same time we have to make it easier to immigrate to the U.S. giving preference to Mexico and Canada. and stop all immigration from the middle east and student visas to the Saudies..
How long will the line be?
You could make it a lottery. So many picked each year….
Heh! The first lottery that noone wants to win! LOL
I agree. It is doable. The template is "they are doing jobs Americans won’t do". There are many American taxpaying citizens who need jobs.
Also, we need to stop "sponsoring foreigners" in this economic climate. Our unemployment and underemployment rate is astronomical and employers are flying in foreigners to America, sponsor and train them to perform jobs for cheaper wages while people with college degrees with skill-sets are being bypassed.
Good interview; Governor Palin is very at ease talking with reporters.
Its a pleasure to watch this type of sort interviews.
There must be two Sarahs – the MSM would not have been lying all this time.
Well, would they?
lololol piper doesn’t need to apologize! she did the right thing!!
anyway sarah always has the right thing to say. i hate it when people say she’s afraid of the media because it’s obvious that she is really comfortable in front of them. she doesn’t want them stalking her but she generously answered a few questions with a cheerful attitude.
They should give Piper flowers, not the around way around! But giving flowers to reporters was a very kind and nice gesture.
I am sure that Piper got the "lesson". She doesn’t have to be happy about it. I love that she is so protective of her Mom. We still love you Piper, but you do have to listen to your Mom.
She is here she is clear…get use to it!!!! 2012 can’t come soon enough!!!
Piper in the last few postings has a frown. Like the O girls. It has got be tiring to jump in an out of vehicles, sight see, and do it again. Would be nice if they could just stay somewhere for two or three days. I am exhausted following them. Palin has a lot of energy. Praying for them.
This leg of the tour will end soon enough, and then they’ll probably return to Alaska for a few days to relax. Some of the kids might decide not to come on the next segment, though I hope they come and don’t miss out on the experience of a lifetime.
alaska? they live in arazona now – the western white house!
Great idea! How ’bout NH!!
She touched on something really, REALLY important here.
And no, I’m not talking about the DREAM Act (yes I’m very pleased with her answer).
What excited me…was the last part about incentivizing manufacturers to produce in America again. We’ve outsourced so much with our awful awful policies.
We’re turning into a service nation, rather than a nation of producers!
It really excites me to see that she recognizes that we MUST bring manufacturing BACK TO AMERICA. And become a producer once more!!
Producing energy would help us with jobs. It also would have a positive impact on manufacturing as you need alot of equipment to do it.
It’s all connected.
So far, Sarah Palin seems to be the only one to get that.
It’s all tied together. Energy, Security, Debt, Jobs, Manufacturing, Freedom…
Got that right. Who would build a factory where there was no power to run it? Ask Phoenix about the Palo Verde nuke plant – it would still be a desert village if it didn’t have the power from PV.
Anyone with two cents of common sense knows that – just goes to show how few have two cents of common sense in our "now" leaders.
That’s exactly what I told my progressive friend who works for Citi, this weekend. Massive layoffs over there. He is scared he could be next. The jobs went to Mumbai. My friend is now a Sarah suppoter.
That’s good news. See? Since she is conveying her principles on her terms on live TV rather than edited interviews, people are hearing her ideas, accomplishments, positions on the issues and a swell of Americans waiting to catch a glimpse of her. She is having an impact on Independents who are suffering in Obama’s recession.
It’s not so much incentivizing that American manufacturers need, it ending the disincentifying.
We have a system where you need to have an environmental impact study to have Fourth of July fireworks, where you can spend billions to develop drilling to be told that you might have an impact on the air quality of a village 90 miles away so you need more study, where the identification of a small animal, distinguishable only by experts, could lead to the virtual confiscation of your land and loss of investment.
This needs to end. Tax incentives are nice, but frankly, cutting down on the cost of doing business, the red tape and delays that anything takes to get done will have a bigger impact on our ability to create jobs. And the good thing about that is that it doesn’t worsen the deficit, less government costs less.
The EPA is one dept. that Sarah could take a butcher knife to and cut all the regs that stifle business.
….like talking to companies that have out-sourced jobs and giving them tax breaks to bring the jobs back
Of course the LSM will jump in and say that Sarah is anti-immigrant for not supporting the Dream Act.
good. i want it out that she is anti ILLEGAL immigrant (or as moe the bartender says – immigants)
When Palin’s position on contentious issues becomes known the media will begin their attacks to defend illegal behavoir and multiculturalism.
good. bring it to the forefront. its a major issue. and along with maobama (and public pensions) illegals are bankrupting the states
Let them, it won’t be anything new. Besides I believe that most Americans do not support the Dream Act.
When candidates talk about the Dream act they also touch on trade agreements, NAFTA and the SPP.
Great post by GVS:
But here is the message: if you think two candidates in this race are
copies or each other, or mirror image replacements of each other, it is
because the media is failing you. Many candidates or possible
candidates have similar views on many topics (and even Democrats and
Republicans can agree on topics) - but each brings something unique to
It is our job in the media to make plain the differences so that you can decide."

Don’t forget to clear your cookies and go vote.
I used the DWTS technique yesterday and today. Does anyone know how long this poll will be up? And, how can you find the current results of it?
So it’s cookies. I thought it was the IP address that was tracked.
Yet another view of the class of Sarah Palin vs the LSM. I bet it made an impact on the reporters that got the flowers, probably the others there also. I wonder when the last time was someone apologized to them – or gave them something!
From Gateway Pundit: LADY LIBERTY Sarah Palin visits Ellis Island
oh crap Gov Palin made piper tell the press she was sorry for being her mothers bouncer….
Piper the bouncer ! Funny.
ShawnaT_DC Shawna Thomas Also @SarahPalinUSA gave me a flower. That was nice.
That’s right, Pipe. Stick to your guns.
Sarah Palin praises Gov. Christie during visit to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty.
This proves Sarah is taking notes on what other potential candidates are doing (quote from your article):
"When informed that Gov. Chris Christie had spent the previous evening meeting with a contingent of Iowa Republicans who’d urged him to jump into the race for president, Palin made reference to an earlier Christie remark in which he said nothing short of committing suicide would convince people he wasn’t running. Based on that, Palin said, she believed he would not run."
if you read it, "praise" is a stretch
One thing she’s consistent on is she never goes after other Republicans. Plenty of other Republicans have gone after her and said things about her, but she is always positive about other Republicans, always has nice things to say about them. I think it tells you something.
@AdrianaCohen16 if you aren't #bostonstrong, not sure who is! Thx for your boldness!
