America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag by Sarah Palin

America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag
This is my America, from my heart, and by my heart. I give it now to my children and grandchildren, and to yours, so they will always know what it was like in America when people were free.

Since the publication of her bestselling memoir, Going Rogue, in 2009, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has traveled the country extensively. She has visited cities and towns in almost every state, dropped in on military bases, given talks and speeches to small groups and at massive rallies. Throughout her travels, she has been privileged to meet thousands of Americans—ordinary men and women who have shared with her their hopes and dreams, their love of country, and their fears about what lies ahead. Governor Palin, inspired by these encounters, celebrates in her new book the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country a beacon of liberty and hope for the rest of the world.

America by Heart is a highly personal testament to her deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. Ranging widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, Governor Palin reflects on the key values that have been such an essential part of her own life and that continue to inform her vision of America’s future. The book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her, as well as portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.

Informed by Palin’s own principles and deepest feelings, graced with intimate memories, this remarkable book gives us a close-up view of an extraordinary woman who is not afraid to speak out and defend the American values in which she so deeply believes.

Sarah Palin says she can beat Barack Obama

Going Rouge: The Sarah Palin Rogue Coloring & Activity Book
"Republicans are talking openly about President Obama's vulnerability for re-election in 2012, and one of them is Sarah Palin."

See the video.

Apparently, the Republican Party believes she would lose. Sarah responded:

"Then perhaps they should vent some of their paranoia toward all of the potential G.O.P. candidates. Because obviously there's no guarantee that any one of us would win. But I do believe that much of this is a threat to their hierarchy, because I've never shied away from a battle and because I'll put principle before politics."

Sarah has not made up her mind. Previously dismissed by liberal voters, she has become a force. Despite poor interviews in the run-up to the 2008 election, despite that she has been parodied and mocked, many voters are finding she represents their views. Beyond the hyperbole of talk shows, her voting audience is increasing.

Can she beat Barack Obama? In 2008, no. In 2012? She thinks so. Just as her appeal to voters, both classic conservatives and Republicans, increases, President Obama's appeal is decreasing among independent voters.

With George Bush out of office and pushing his book, Decision Points, and Obama now responsible for his tenure in office, the ownership of problems has shifted.

Bush blaming still exists by the partisan of Obama supporters, but many are realizing and agreeing with Bush's stand on some things.

* We are still in Iraq and Afghanistan. Men and women are still dying. Just as Bush declared the war over too early, so has Obama. Not until ever soldier is sage is the war over.
* We see the threar of Iran and North Korea more acutely.
* Health care, per Obama's plan, confuses and concerns the average voter.
* The unemployment rate is embarrassingly high for Obama, whose efforts have not broughts results.
* The American economy, including the housing market, suffers.

Whether Sarah can win or not is one question. Whether she will influence the race is not a question. The Republicans will take women seriously. The Democrats will realize Hillary is not the only woman out there, that a woman can be feminine and strong. Both parties will realize partisan politics builds no bridges -- neither Bush nor Obama were in anyway bridge-builders.

Looking beyond the hate-speech delivered by blog world, the laughing at Bristol Palin's miraculous survival on Dancing with the Stars, and the incredulous fame-seeking continued self-lampooning by Bristol's ex, Levi Johnston, Sarah has thrived.

Got a Review of "Going Rogue"?

Sarah Palin, a Liberal? Right.

Sometimes, newspaper reporters are looking for controversy. Sarah Palin has delivered some over the years, but this time E.J. Dionne was desperate. Just because you are in a boxing ring doesn't make it a fight.

Sarah is conservative. Is anyone surprised? Dionne thinks you should be. How illiterate does he think his readers are?

Sarah Palin Speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention

Sarah Palin became famous to those who only read the Huffington Post or listen to Rush Limbaugh one night in 2008. She took the stage and owned. This began her national profile, and thanks to SNL and the fabulous Tina Fey, she is famous around the world.

Sarah Palin Leaves Office Feeling Great

Why is Sarah feeling great? The future looks bright. Two years ago, few people were watching. Now, she is in control. Opportunities are everywhere.

She is iconoclastic, a true feminist not bound by the NOW's crusty definition of a woman.

This year, she fascinates even President Obama's fans. They might not like her, but they can tell you more about her than they can about when Obama's health care plan will pay off. The best they can do, though, is huff a few "You betcha"s hoping to gain a nervous chuckle.

She delivered a swift 15 minute speech, and she moved on. Next stop?
