Pro-Palin Groups Grow Rapidly

In response to Dick Morris' article predicting Obama will be re-elected in 2012, I sent the following to a friend: "As far as winning in 2012: The way you win is to determine what you have to do to prevail -- and then do it. Sarah Palin is doing all the right things, and we should do the same. Nothing is inevitable; no one is unbeatable. If we have a huge army of volunteers, the next President will be the woman in pink below."

Dear Friends: A number of you were "NoBama Mission" bloggers, a group that has now ceased to exit. The election was a massive disappointment (to say the least), but amongst the wreckage of Nov. 4 there are many flowers -- signs of hope -- blooming. Together, we created a powerful movement that helped the election from becoming what it might have been: a rout.

Also, new leaders have emerged, the most notable of whom is Gov. Sarah Palin. She has asked us to look toward the future, rather than engage in navel-gazing or fantasizing about what might have been.

Is this remarkable woman running for President? Anyone who's paid attention in recent days realizes that the answer is a resounding YES!

Will she be successful? Who knows? But I wouldn't bet against her.

In 2002, she lost the race in Alaska for Lt. Gov. Four years later, she won the Republican Primary and the General Election by huge margins. I hope those who support Gov. Palin -- or are leaning that way -- will join some of the more effective pro-Palin Groups. An important one is, whose members number nearly 60,000.

Another top-flight group is That's Janet's site for bloggers and other onliners. A first-rate -- and large -- Yahoo Group has sprung up within the last 10 days. You can find it on Yahoo at TeamSarah2012.

I've created a new blog -- the one where you are now -- focused on Sarah Palin. It's accessible at: and I'll be writing five times a week about organizations and tactics focused on winning the presidency in 2012. Such a victory will not take place without an army of tireless activists, one numbering in the millions.

The groups I've highlighted are action-oriented. They're the tips of the spears necessary for victory in future political battles. In terms of defeating the Obama Democrats, first in 2010 and then in 2012, the only questions that truly matter are: If not now, when? If not us, who?

I hope you'll consider joining the organizations I've mentioned. On this blog, I'll be writing regularly about other groups and discussing tactics that are working.

We can win in 2010 and 2012. Of everyone running Palin was the only on a national level who truly reformed anything. We can do it but the work starts now!
