Sam Bain at FoxNation:
The only reason this is a serious issue now is because Obama is not done with his spending spree. America’s credit card is maxed out, but when you could care less about balancing the budget, all you have to do is increase the credit line. Well, thank God for the Strong Red November we had last fall. Had the GOP not taken over the House, the debt limit would have already been raised, with no balanced budget amendment and no spending cuts. There’s a good chance taxes would have been raised too and America would continue plummeting down the never ending abyss of government spending.

Is it just the film debut that's got the PDS-sufferers all wee-wee'd up? I believe there's one more thing that has them running in every direction now. On Wednesday night, Governor Palin told Sean Hannity that a 2012 announcement is imminent. Could their worst fears have come upon them? Is it possible that the one they attacked, the one whose record they tried to sully, the one they worked unceasingly to destroy but couldn't--yes, the undefeated one-- might just be the one to take on the GOP machine, the 2012 Republican candidates, and ultimately the so-called anointed one? Is it possible that the truth of her record, so ably communicated in The Undefeated, will help make this next step that much more likely to be a success?
Roaches thrive in the dark, but they cannot tolerate the light. When it comes, they scurry. In other words, they get all wild and crazy. They try anything to keep themselves alive and their infestation preserved. They crave the darkness again. The problem for them, however, is that darkness doesn't really exist. What we call darkness is simply the absence of light, but once light comes, we see more clearly, we understand better, and we act accordingly. Light has come. The Undefeated is light. Governor Palin's 2012 announcement will be light. The roaches don't like it, and they're already scurrying manically, but it's too late. Their fate has been sealed.

America has been shaped by those who have defiantly stared down failure and tried again.
In a sense, that is what “The Undefeated” seeks to convey, and it is that state of mind that can potentially propel Palin to the nomination and beyond.
“The Undefeated” is Southern in the sense that it captures the essence of a proudly defiant spirit. And Palin can claim that mantle more than anyone in the race.
“The Undefeated” is also an exurban, frontier state of mind. Americans go to the exurbs and the frontier to start anew and to reinvent themselves, often after failing. In many cases, the failures have been exacerbated by liberal government policies.
In the end, the defiant optimism in the face of the failure, which “The Undefeated” is about, is really the story of America.
Jamie Radtke, US Senate Candidate in Virginia:
But for millions across this country, Sarah Palin represents a new direction. That direction is personified in her documentary, Undefeated, which premieres Friday. Governor Palin has stood up to the Washington double-talk and inspired millions of Americans to say “no” to politics as usual. To badly paraphrase Johnny Paycheck, Sarah Palin isn’t afraid to say, “You can take these peas and shove it!”
When Governor Palin came to the Richmond Raceway during the 2008 presidential election, I attended with other moms like me who were growing increasingly concerned about the direction of our nation. It was a chore to push my children in a double stroller across a field while carrying homemade signs and keeping up with my six year old. Governor Palin spoke to 20,000 people and inspired us to end ‘politics as usual.’
So you can imagine what an honor it is for me to have a small part in Sarah Palin’s Undefeated documentary, and to share with others the influence she has had on conservative thinking in America. Here’s a brief preview of the film, if you haven’t seen it already.
Undefeated will change your opinion of Sarah Palin, because she possesses the rarest trait in politics today: Courage. Sarah Palin is a woman of conviction and integrity who stands up to the good ‘ole boys of her own party (who believe constitutional principles are a detail to be discarded whenever a poll fluctuates) and demands the political games stop. She speaks with candor and acts with boldness.
Robert Stacy McCain at The Other McCain:
Sarah Palin: “I don’t trust this President. . . . He doesn’t know how to make those cuts. He’s never had to do this before. He’s always just been one to spend other people’s money even if that money is just borrowed money or printed out of thin air. He’s never had to exercise real executive authority like that.”
[She's] Exactly right! Go through Obama’s resume and try to find when he was ever in a position of executive authority, responsible for making tough decisions about budget matters, especially in a situation like this, where spending must be cut or else.
Barack Obama today said he can beat any Republican candidate in the presidential debates on the budget. Oh really now, Mr. President? Sarah Palin would kick your ass all over that stage!
I heard him say it on Fox news. If anyone has the exact quote, please put it in the comments. I had to laugh when he said that. Sarah Palin would tear him to pieces.
