Even the Daily Kos Pollster Shows that Governor Palin Has Turned an 18-Point Deficit Among NC Independents Into a 14-Point Lead in One Month/Open Thread

What’s going on today?

Even the Daily Kos pollster is showing a 32-point swing (from -18 to +14) towards Governor Palin among North Carolina independents in her matchup with Barack Obama in just one month.

Courtesy of Rubegonia, here was Tammy Bruce’s great segment on Governor Palin yesterday: Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Amanda Coyne does a pretty good job pushing back against Erick Erickson and Ann Coulter in this piece.  So which one of you guys other than Damien spoke with her at the Iowa events?  Her note about the media tent is unsurprising.

The Anchoress tweets that Obama is "giving the Palin speech."

Here’s another great NY Sun editorial about the Governor: Union Maid.

    "The Anchoress tweets that Obama is giving the Palin speech"

    Huh????  This speech is NOTHING like a Palin speech. 

    • EclecticAk

      She was probably refering to all the "small business/job creater" references. That is a major Lady Sarah speech component….. his speechwriters are stealing sound bites from her again…..

      • Guest

        I kinda thought that’s what she meant…but I just couldn’t hear ANY Sarah in that speech….OR any Palin!  ;-) 

        Especially when he got to the part about how this country’s responsibility was to pretty much care for everyone and spread the wealth around.  But I was still fairly nauseas at about that time.

        Fifth, we can and we will make America the most attractive country on earth to do business in. Here’s how we’re going to do this. Right now, we have the highest federal corporate income tax rate in the industrialized world. Did you know our rates are higher than China and communist Cuba? This doesn’t generate as much revenue as you would think, though, because many big corporations skirt federal taxes because they have the friends in D.C. who right the rules for the rest of us. This makes us less competitive and restrains our engine of prosperity. Heck, some businesses spend more time trying to figure out how to hide their profits than they do in generating more profits so that they can expand and hire more of us. So, to make America the most attractive and competitive place to do business, to set up shop here and hire people here, to attract capital from all over the globe that will lead to an explosion of growth, instead of chasing industry offshore, I propose to eliminate all federal corporate income tax. And hear me out on this. This is how we create millions of high-paying jobs. This is how we increase opportunity and prosperity for all.

        But here’s the best part: To balance out any loss of federal revenue from this tax cut, we eliminate corporate welfare and all the loopholes and we eliminate bailouts. This is how we break the back of crony capitalism because it feeds off corporate welfare, which is just socialism for the very rich. We can change all of that. The message then to job-creating corporations is: We’ll unshackle you from the world’s highest federal corporate income tax rate, but you will stand or fall on your own, just like all the rest of us out on main street.

        See, when we empower the job-creators, our economy will soar; Americans will get back to work.

          Richard Fernandez has a good post on the economic effects of stragulating regulation:

          If it were true then fewer people would be out of a job. But it’s only partly true that the factors of production are free to move — they are not where it counts — and so we wind up with all the disadvantages of globalization without the advantages it should provide. Factors are not even free to move within a single country. For example, Boeing cannot build 787s outside of a union state. The US Postal Service can’t redeploy resources because it has a legal mandate. In such a situation it can make more sense to move entire industries outside of country rather than tangle with the gatekeepers inside of one.

          Once the barriers within a system are greater than those between systems, then activity will offshore.

        Noticed same from two wannabe,s in the debate last night, and they did with a straight face like said ideas were their very own.

        • spottedreptile

          And they sounded like copycats. They always fall down in the details. There wasn’t enough time in the debate for a thorough quizzing, there never is. It’s why debates with so many candidates are just about marketing and not about substance. Palin will whack’em later on when the real debates start to unfold.

    • Bill589

      I agree.  Most important difference:  Sarah tells the truth and makes sense.

    • bedr1

      Absolutely he ripped Palin off on the populist portion

  • still_grizzled

    So, I’m watching baseball on cable when the cable goes out.
    I click around trying to see if all channels are out, but there is one channel on.
    It’s ABC, and they are carrying Obama’s speech.
    The only channel out of 75 channels is Obama’s speech.


    • virginiagentleman1

      Sorry to hear that, Griz!  You must have Comcast. Try Directv, I found 350 other things to watch. Even the shopping channels are more stimulating then an Obama speech. I admire all of our friends who had the stomach to watch that fool. Of course, now most of them are busy cleaning up all the vomit he induces!

      • Carol Carr

        It was absolute BS! Mark Levin had to turn him off so he wouldn’t lose listeners…

        • Lor Mazz

          Levin was great tonight i had it on. Great stuff.

      • heshtesh

        Straight to the Military channel for me Directv. 

        • virginiagentleman1

          Love the Military Channel ! Great choice heshtesh and far more stimulating and entertaining then Obama.

      • celestiallady

        Wicked Attraction on ID had to be better than his speach.

      Americans do not like to wait for anything but wait till next week i will give you the budget cuts. Is he for real. PALIN4EVER

      Now that I back from my 10 day vacation at Martha’s Vineyard….


    He can give her speech all he wants but only one of them mean it.

  • Carol Carr

    I feel a nightstick coming……

  • Nancy6

    TOTUS must have been playing the "Pass the Bill" drinking game when it came up with this doozy of a speech!

    • celestiallady

      There was a Bingo game going around too. His same old comments were in each square.

  • cuttingboardblues

    I’m old school C4P.  I want concedes

    • Mr_Wednesday_Night

      The guy who engaged in a land transaction with convicted felon Tony Rezko gave a speech tonight, in which a teleprompter delivered his remarks to him word for word.

      • BigRMV

        Strike out pitch straight down the middle!  Game over.

  • Caneman

    ‘evening fellow Palenites…

    I’m still savoring Perry’s "Blue Screen of Death" performance from last night…

  • LesDupont

    Gergin on CNN said new TEA Party congressman are in danger if they don’t compromise

    • CBDenver

      Funny how "compromise" means do whatever Obama wants.

      • BigRMV

        I wonder what they mean by "in danger."

    • celestiallady

      The new Tea Party congressmen are not in it for a life time job – that is no threat to them.

    • Betsey_Ross

      How clueless these guys are.  In danger of what?  Expect the rhetoric to be escalated more and more. 

  • nat4sarah

    I hope that nobody is fooled by this joker!  He is doing a campaigning and I can’t believe that Boehner allowed him to do it in the congress!  Pass the Bill!  ANd who’s going to pay?  WE are already bankrupt and he is talking about spending more?  I can’t wait for 2012!

  • Mr_Wednesday_Night

    Obama has finally identified the real problem: We’re under attack by an army of strawmen, led by a dude named "Some Say". He’s going to bravely fight them off and save us!

    • CBDenver

      +10.  Thread-winner.

      • BigRMV

        Hands down!

  • crunchingk

    noone is listning,barry just go golfing we will be paying your sorryass for the rest of your life!!

  • Nancy6

    Onus is an interesting word. 

    • AmsterdamExpat

      Thanks, Nancy, I needed a laugh after (not listening to but) hearing of the dreadful speech that was just concluded.

      It is an interesting word, yes, especially when it passes O’s lips. Which it does time and again, as he just can’t resist putting it on others.

  • Nancy6

    Obviously it’s not too late for Obama to get in. #campaignspeech

  • toongoon

    His academic elites have finally given him some useful advise: "Say what Palin said". Unfortunately, They also told him to keep destroying the economy. Oh well.

  • crunchingk

    would someone please call mitts girlfriend tommorow and shove this poll down her throat?im sick of hearing how she cant win indies pure bs!!!!!!!

  • tomlyn

    I’m sure Bill O. , Laura, & Ann will be fair and balanced and show Sarah’s 14 point lead but don’t hold your breath.  History will show Sarah for the great leader she was at this time in our history and they will have been long forgotten.

  • Nancy6

    Is Kentuckeh, one of Obama’s 7 imaginary states?

  • frank

    Palin 51
    Obama 38

    Obama 53
    Palin 38

    Now Palin has a 14 point lead among independents? Do you need any further proof how phony PPP polls are in regards to Obama vs Palin?
