Governor Palin Takes NY State by Storm (20,000+ show up!)
Conservatives4Palin ^ | June 6, 2009 | Daniel Terrapin

Posted on 06/06/2009 4:22:28 PM PDT by Virginia Ridgerunner

More than 20,000 people turned out to see Palin lead a parade through downtown Auburn and sign a proclamation honoring Seward, the 19th-century Secretary of State who negotiated the $7.2 million deal with Russia for Alaska, which is celebrating its 50th year of statehood.

Come on now, be fair.

He had 50 town employees show up in Haddonfield, NJ !!

Of course, I was later told half of them didn't know who was coming but went anyway because it was a nice day and they got to go outside. LOL !

Excellent to see.

Governor Palin must now start to demonstrate the intellectual framework of her agenda and a clear intellectual understanding of the issues that this current President is going to leave the country

If she can intelligently articulate the problems of this country, and the proper solutions, she can be a force. That stupid Katie Couric interview still haunts her, and she still has a bit to do before she can start to regain the middle.

Good to see she firmly has the right.

This shows the media that Palin is a big star and that she can not be ignored. If they actually did cover her fairly theIr heads would explode.

Compare Sarah with Jennifer Granholm. Both were beauty contestants. One is a successful, popular governor of a prosperous state, while the other is an increasingly unpopular governor of a state with a dismal economy and high unemployment. One is ridiculted by the MSM and by democrats and their followers. The other was on the short list for a Supreme Court nomination. hmmm...

Gov. Palin also had crowds of people approach to greet her
on the streets, and places she visited in the Auburn ,
encouraging her to run in 2012.
The photos of this were outstanding.

Will look forward to her event on Long Island and Westchester Sunday.

Of those mentioned in the running for 12 or the hangerons,
as has been said before, they don’t have the draw and enthusiasm from the crowds as Gov. Palin.

I was 16 years old, living in Anchorage, when Alaska was admitted into the Union. What a party it was!

It is still my favorite state, still have friends there, and go up every few years. They all love Sarah up there.

Given the way the MSM portrayed Governor Palin, you may be right.

However, she has demonstrated a clear understanding of the issues. As for an intellectual framework — if that's what most leading politicians have and Palin doesn't; then she's better off without one. For John Kerry, an “intellectual framework” meant endless nuances & flip-flopping. For BHO, it meant vacuous platitudes. As for his agenda; apparently much of it was hidden, until after the election.

If you're actually “doing” the right things; then it doesn't require an “intellectual framework" to justify it. When what you're doing makes no sense; it requires a lot of intellectualizing to attempt to square the circle.

20,000? I don’t think Auburn’s population is much larger than that...it’s a small town. Maybe people coming in from Syracuse..?

Auburn only has a population of 28,000 and it’s heavily democrat. Syracuse news coverage was more decent than I expected. They interviewed a Virginia couple that traveled 12 hours to see Sarah, and a couple wearing all their Alaska gear. Out of an estimated 20,000 people screaming Sa-RAH, Sa-RAH, they found a rumpled protestor who tried to bring up the unfortunate stereotypes about her, and an admitted lefty gal who said it’s a great day for Auburn and she came out to see what Sarah had to say.

The remarks she made at City Hall were brief, but sweet and witty. She gave a longer speech inside the Seward House. I’m trying to find a transcript of that. She’s reported to have made some comments on 0’s policies.

Sarah, Todd and Willow were in town yesterday as tourists at the Harriet Tubman House, and the Women’s Historical National Park and the Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls.

Hey guys -- They've got the video up of Gov. Palin's 26-min. speech to the group at the Seward House this afternoon. The video and audio are a little out of sync but it is great. She takes on energy, taxes, gov't mandates and much more. it's a variation on her speech last week at the Michael Reagan function and it is great.

Video Link

I think I found a tagline...regarding the VAT she said, "There is nothing value-added about ANY tax". I'm in love...LOL.

Wow you really have a problem with Romny dont you.

Romney and his minions have been trying to undermine and destroy Governor Palin ever since McCain selected her as his VP running mate. His flip-flopping, opportunism, and RINO socialism aside, I'll never forgive him for that and will take every opportunity to ram a big stick in his eye on this forum.

“So how many have been showing up at Romney’s events lately?”

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark! Rom-dog is ok but he’s no Sarah. He is likeable though imho, a good candidate. So who have we got? Sarah, Romney, Jindal...anyone else realistically? I think Sarah would destroy Obama in a debate by contrast. We do need someone who can control the media narrative and be a “rock star” as much as that can be lame.

You nailed it. That's what sets her apart from other pols, even conservative ones...the ability to lead and inspire. Reagan had it. Palin is younger and less experienced than Reagan when he ascended to the national scene, but she has it as well.

From one of the links....and just one of many reasons why we love Sarah!

"At one point, Palin said she shared with Susan B. Anthony a desire for the protection of women. "For me, that includes our youngest sisters, girls in the womb," she said."

It looked like a campaign event, but the town fathers of Auburn, home of Seward House, started working on this months before Sarah was nominated. They went to Google and looked up “Alaska Governor”.

Republican presidential candidates don’t spend much time in New York State. I was thrilled with the welcome she got, as Auburn is a democrat town, and the Women’s History attractions nearby are solid left. Let’s see if Sarah can ever get nominated to the Women’s Hall of Fame, much less as quickly as Gerry Ferraro did.

NY might survive if they toss out the NYC welfare state and the Albany political class. You notice how little time Sen HRC spent in the upstate areas or how hard the taxes and green nazi regulations killed the industries of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse et. al.

The Washington Post has the obligatory Palin bash:

Palin's trip was paid for by her political action committee, SarahPAC. Palin's trips have been an issue in the past. The Alaska governor has been given until June 23 to reimburse the state for an estimated $10,000 in costs associated with trips taken by her children, under an agreement resolving an ethics complaint against her.

And the obligatory anti-Palin observer:

Local resident Chris Stone, with his wife and three children, said he didn't care for Palin's politics but didn't want to miss the chance to see her in person. "You can see by the turnout, she's become a personality and a historical figure," said Stone, who voted for Obama. "I know all these people aren't Republicans. This is a chance to see someone who has had a big impact on history."

And the obligatory anti-Palin protest:

As she spoke, about a dozen protesters from the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, a lobbying group that seeks to protect wildlife and the environment, held up signs condemning her continued promotion of the aerial hunting of wolves, but the large crowd was mostly receptive to her appearance.

Outstanding!!
Neither Elizabeth Cady Stanton nor Susan B. Anthony accepted abortion as a means for women to control their own lives. They considered it heinous, and just another way for MEN to control women. They would not even recognize the 'Women's Movement' of today.
