Governor Palin’s advice to Romney-Ryan: ‘Go Rogue'; Updated: Romney: "I’ve got a very effective campaign"

Via The Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper:

In a statement to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offers some advice for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, this year’s Republican ticket for president and vice president, respectively.

"With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should ‘go rogue’ and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security," says Palin. "They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform."

Palin also suggests that Romney and Ryan can be responsible for an epiphany on this country’s fiscal standing. "America desperately needs to have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment in discussing our big dysfunctional, disconnected, and debt-ridden federal government," says Palin.

"It is nothing short of appalling that President Obama couldn’t even remember how much our national debt is during his interview with David Letterman the other night. Even my 10-year-old daughter knows that it’s $16 trillion, and unlike Obama, she’s not responsible for adding trillions to it. Obama casually told America that we don’t have to worry about our debt in the ‘short term.’ Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to ask him how long that ‘short term’ will last."

More here. It would be encouraging if Team Mitt listens to Governor Palin’s advice and begins to show similar passion and conviction in their battle with Obama. I’m not optimistic, though, and fear we’ll be treated to more of this kind of drivel instead.

Update: Will Romney heed Governor Palin’s advice and make some necessary changes to his campaign? I think we have our answer, via CBS:

Scott Pelley: Governor, I appreciate your message very much. But that wasn’t precisely the question. You’re the CEO of this campaign. A lot of Republicans would like to know, a lot of your donors would like to know, how do you turn this thing around? You’ve got a little more than six weeks. What do you do?

Mitt Romney: Well, it doesn’t need a turnaround. We’ve got a campaign which is tied with an incumbent president to the United States … I’ve got a very effective campaign. It’s doing a very good job.

Translation: Remain calm, all is well.

    If there is anyone who can reduce Obama from the mythological being that the left presents him as down to the small, petty and irresponsible man he really is, it’s Sarah Palin.

    She has such a knack for it.

    • PW4SP ? ?

      Gov. Sarah Palin speaks the truth about Obama, and the truth will always prevail.
      I thank God for Sarah Palin who has the courage to do what is correct.
      Evil hates Truth!

  • myfairlady

    I’m glad that someone took the time to have her weigh in on the current state of affairs.  Hopefully the campaign team will listen to her advice.  They need to hammer these issues at each event and each interview–keep the petal to the medal and drive it home.

  • c4pfan

    Thank you Sarah!  Thanks for posting this too.

  • Polarbearpapa

    Common sense advice…..R&R…….Just tell America the TRUTH!!!!….you will be surprised at how Americans respond….


    • Banda31

      America at this time in history is badly in need of a Leader. If Mitt Romney heeds the Governor’s advice he can be such. I pray God that he does and soon. Time is running out!!!

  • carmtom13

    Romney needs to take Governor Palin’s advice, she knows what she is talking about and has been through it. Governor Palin knows how BHO, his crew and his’C O A left lap dog media operate. Excellent advice Romney and Ryan need to take it.

  • UnhyphenatedAmericanVet

    "At the founding of our country, a great American patriot wrote, ‘If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace,'" says Palin. "Obama’s motto seems to be, ‘Let the good times roll in my day. The kids can deal with the catastrophic bankruptcy in theirs.’ That’s no way for the leader of a great nation to behave, and I hope Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney continue to call him out on it. Generations of American children are counting on them."

    short and sweet…BAM…halibutt!

  • Patriot41

    Excellent point by Sarah about the come to Jesus moment, in more ways then one.  Obama’s mentality about letting the good times roll, was another excellent point.  If circumstances do not change quickly, we will not have to wait until the next generation, to experience going over the fiscal cliff.  Only problem facing this nation, is the fact that not everyone has anything invested in our country and it is those who do not, that do not give a damn.

  • generictrainee

    I like it , short and to the point.

  • RedDaveR

    Gov. Palin is clear and direct as usual.  If only Romney-Ryan and the GOP would take her advice.

    • Carolyn Dixon

       they will do everything to destroy her because they are setting romney up for the fall so they can annoint another bush – jeb for 2016.  that will backfire for sure.


        Gov.Palin will never be destoryed, Jeb bush isn’t even an issue, right now we need to elect Romney,  as Gov. Palin has said, so let’s save our country and be sure of it.
        First things first! America.

        forget the polls, todays are crap on a spoon, so don’t forget it.

  • indemind

    Palin adds that Romney and Ryan are being "counted on" to get this right.

    Palin-"There is no limit to what we can accomplish when we don’t care who gets the credit." And – “May we always be happy, and may our enemies know it.”….  *_*

    • patnatasha

      you forgot to add the dufus to your equation.

  • DocBarry1

    Governor Palin is spot on – when with the Romney/Ryan Team wake up – they need to get the Governor involved in their campaign – they need to excite the public with the TRUTH – is this b bold or just what is needed – it is what is needed – so wake up and do what’s right and stop waiting.

    • friskyness

       They probably would rather lose than ask for help from Sarah!   Cowards!   They might get their wish……………..

      • DocBarry1

        It is unbelievable – the Governor could, indeed, help them – what small people Obama needs to go so I guess we just have to Pray

  • isabel matos

    This is so frustrating! We have no room to lose this elction. GOP nominee or not. Why can’t they get it??!!!!

    Ryan may listen a little more but I general it is obvious they refuse to listen. It is also clear that if Sarah tells them to go rogue, which they should, then they won’t because she said so.

    In any case, she can’t save them from themselves, even though she is giving them all the possible pointers they need to win.

    Again, very frustrating. What is going on with the AKIN race? I hope he wins. If anyone knows, please share the information. There’s another dense poltician.

    • isabel matos

      One more thing.. The TEA PARTY base does not need motivating. We have been ready to roll since November 2008.

      It’s the GOP and the Romney campaign that needs us for a shot in their arm.

  • Elwanda Burrell

    Palin: We need a come to Jesus moment……Yes we do.  Romney will be saying we have got an effective campaign the whole time they are losing on Nov. 6th. Romney needs Palin as an advisor!!!

    • Carolyn Dixon

       he will never ask and she  will never accept.  she knows what he is like and couldn’t stand working under him.  neither could I.


    WE. ARE. SCREWED. !!

  • RedDaveR

     Pelley is driving the MSM narrative that Obama has a big lead and that Romney-Ryan are desperate looking for a way to "turn it around".  Obviously Romney has his problems, but in spite of that the race is still within the margin of error despite the MSM’s attempt to show otherwise.  The messiah has his share of problems as well.

     The sad part of is that if Romney-Ryan had taken Gov. Palin’s advice, they would have a clear lead by now.


    • karen

      How can we believe any of the polls??? If Mittens was more popular & had enough points to drive the polls to him…the numbers would be better for him than they are…even with the cheating! He has to change something he’s not doing for the numbers to go to him…hummmm???

  • daisy_mae

    I have no doubt, whatsoever, not even the in the slightest, that if Romney/Ryan pay heed to the Governor’s advice they would be polling above 50%.

       some of us do have core principles and beliefs and will not compromise those just to vote for a candidate against another.  and no, i’m not voting for obama and i’m leaning not voting for romney because of his lackluster campaigning. and for ann romney to come out and tell the republicans to stop complaining because it is hard, shows neither one is ready for the white house.

      • socon

        I couldn’t believe Ann Romney’s remark, "’s hard!"  No sh!t, Ann.  Just ask Sarah; she had to fight the thug from Chicago AND you sneaky RINOs on the right.

        Cry me a river.

    • socon

      I disagree:  It’s GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY.

      Bullies are unattractive.

  • n4cerinc

    I think we will begin to see strategies change after the debates. Romney won Florida precisely because he made some changes. Let’s see how the first debate goes, the fallout from it and what the response is from them. 

    • Carolyn Dixon

       he won’t.  he’s  a stuck in the mud stiff who only listens to those in the bush administration.  he hates sarah palin because she didn’t come out and endorse him in the primaries.  he thought he should not have had to be challenged as he was and  he will not give her or her supporters the time of day.  well my answer to that is, we don’t have to give him our time of day either.  we can not vote for president but make sure to elect true conservatives – not "severely" conservative to the House and to the senate.
