Or has it?
We asked Jews for Sarah’s Benyamin Korn his opinion. Jews for Sarah responded,
Sarah Palin has welcomed both Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry into the race. The more people advocating “commonsense conservative” ideas, the better, and the more discussion and debate of these ideas among the American people, the better.
We do not accept the notion that the Republicans are weak or that Obama is somehow invulnerable. We are encouraged that by far the most engaging personalities are aligned with the Tea Party wing of the GOP, and that it is the “moderates” who seem to have an enthusiasm deficit.
Notice that in the recent debt-ceiling deliberations, it was Sarah who rallied the Congressional freshmen at the crucial hour, who had by far the most comprehensive statement about the debt and our credit rating after the credit downgrade and the market swoon, and who attracted mobs of supporters and news media just by agreeing to speak at the Iowa State Fair.
Sarah does not have the struggle of other candidates to achieve national name recognition, attract a passionate base of supporters, or show that they can have an impact on Washington.
Unlike the others, she can wait to get into this race. Bill Clinton waited till September, Reagan till December. Sarah is a most astute student of our political history, especially of Reagan’s political career. Recently she said that she would make her intentions clear by the end of September, and that she would run a very unorthodox, grass-roots campaign, as she always has.
Our support for her, and our confidence in her, are not based on the desire to be political “players”, but on the need to respond to our nation’s crisis in behalf of a truly great and transformative political figure.
Update: We should have added that Bachmann and Perry, along with Sarah, are solidly pro-Israel, and aligned with conservative Christians who embrace the vision of America as a Judeo-Christian nation.
