Sarah aims, fires, and hits her target. Again.

Has anyone else had any response to this? I did watch as Gretchen Carlson tried to pin down d w shultz for a response to the union thug [and the VP thug]. deb’s face was contorting somethin’ awful as she tried time after time to slither away!

Sarah takes Hoffa’s night stick away from him and then smacks him in the side of the head with it.

James P. Hoffa and the teamsters union are a totally owned subsidiary of the DOJ.

Since the teamsters signed off on the Consent Decree the DOJ effectively runs the union under a federal trusteeship

Hoffa Lite doesn't sneeze without an OK from DOJ

Biden sounded like a union thug. I hope we can count on his remarks being used in 2012 ads [but I suppose it depends on who gets the nod].

Herman was great as I recall did not have much to say and went on with what he wanted to talk about. Basically saying “Typical” now on to what I want to discuss.

"Governor Palin beats the entire damn GOP to the punch...again."

You're right... and you're not. Five will get you ten that most if not all of her "running mates" for the GOP nod won't touch this with a ten-foot-pole.

Palin alone is the first-responder, the special-ops, human tactical weapon who sprints toward the greatest threat to engage and destroy it, instead of away from the fight... to cower in safety.

She would be the first, except that there won't be a second. As usual, she stands alone, in the breach, defending all that is good, and worth cherishing, from all that is vile, corrupt and anathema to every American ideal.

Allow me to qualify that: She stands alone among those who would seek the highest office in the land, but she stands at the head of the greatest army ever assembled in the history of mankind. The TEA Party represents Sarah Palin's fighting force, and we outnumber virtually every standing army on earth combined.

Those who would stand against us should proceed advisedly and with justifiable caution. It is our very way of life, and the secure futures of our children for which we gather on this, the battlefield of ideas. This battle will be waged in the hearts and minds of men and women across this great land, and the more the truth of this struggle and its implications is made known to the masses, the larger our numbers will swell.

"If trouble must come, may it come in my day, that my children may know peace." Thomas Paine, 1776

Amen.

If all he said was “typical” then it wasn’t great. Hoffas call to arms was an incitement to violence against everyday Americans and THAT needs to be hammered home.

And Palin called em out on it! It was a Union Boss who called us out.

Well I think there is going to be a some violence and intimidation but I trust the American people not to put up with it. The TP is winning the war of ideas with more recruits on the way. When I was a child and did not get my way I threw a tantrum and lashed out. My parents often ignored the behavior rather than respond to it. I “grew up” and learned to deal with situations rationally.

“I hope union members hear her words.”

It depends on their heart. If they love their country and have a heart to hear and eyes to see the truth, they will hear.

The truth will set them free.

-"...look at what’s happening to the working class in our industrialized cities. These cities are going to hell in a hand basket thanks to corruption, crony capitalism, and the union bosses’ greed. The union bosses derive their power from your union dues and their promise to deliver your votes to whichever politician they’re in bed with."

- * -

-"But these union bosses will still figure out a way to keep their gig, and so will their politically aligned corporate friends. As long as these big corporations have a good crony capitalist in the White House, they can rely on DC to bail them out until the whole system goes bankrupt, which, I am afraid, is not very far off. When big government, big business, and big union bosses collude together, they get government to maximize their own interests against those of the rest of the country."

Ok, we know where she stands! And, she knows how to deliver a 'message' to the heart of the problem!

Are you listening OBAMA? and.... ARE YOU listening Republican candidates?

Perry was on Fox this morning, but all he would talk about was the fires. When asked if he thought Hoffa's speech was appropriate, he said it obviously wasn't appropriate if they had to bleep it out. That was pretty much it, except to say that there were union people fighting the fires, and he was glad to have them.

Excellant Post Gargantua...I agree.

I recently e-mailed a Church group of a family member about this election and Sarah Palin was the highlight....they see her as the media has depicted her unfortunatley...but thanks to FR and all the facts presented here I sent these for their consideration....and they are hearing. Asked for more information about Sarah and you can bet I have it to send! They were leaning toward Perry but now troubled by his illigration issues and his affiliations with the Muslim community....also sent info on that.

So thanks for your posts and others....they go further then just here on FR.

Additionally, while union membership represents probably the smallest percentage of the workforce in perhaps history, this election is going to be won or lost at the margins and any peeling off a Republican can do is critical for victory.

Several of my in-laws are all Teamster members - working shipping yards and drive trucks - almost everyone of them voted for Presidebt Obama. In talking to my uncle-in-law, he stated that most of his fellow members from his local feel the same way about The Won! There is ABSOLUTELY no way that any of them would vote for Obama to be dog catcher!

So, when you have disgruntled union members going AGAINST the union bosses, you need someone with a reasoned voice and message - enter Sarah Palin! Run, Sarah, RUN!!!

Don’t let it bother you. As the pedulum swings, unions once served a good purpose before the power corrupted. A lot of her union brothers and sisters are good hard-working conservative people. Thanks to government they have a gun to their heads forcing them to pay union dues, like taxes. Those folks do all they can to counter the effects of those forced dues. These are the people [and those on the fence] are the folks she is inviting to the battle.

One thing I wish she had include in her post is the fact that the union bosses are busy unionizing China and other foreign countries. Once corruption has destroyed union jobs in this country completely they will still be rolling in dough and power - on a much larger international level. They don’t care whether there are American jobs or not.

Both!! Sarah has been a voracious reader since she was little. I remember reading an article on Sarah where one of her professors, from her time at college in Idaho, stated that she was the most gifted writer he taught.

Sarah is truly a gifted writer. She's not bad at speaking either :)

A lot of union members are proud of their membership because they believe in the proud history of unions. You can’t persuade people to see your point of view if you bash something they take pride in. By talking about her former union membership and her family’s current membership (in many industries you can’t get a job unless you’re in a union) she is able to make a connection with them. You have to help them see the problem before they’re willing to change it. Baby steps!

Just WOW! WOW!!!!

I know. She's good, isn't she? She knows how to get people to pay attention who wouldn't otherwise identify with a conservative. She also neutralizes and nullifies the planned cries of "Hypocrite!" by some when she says things like:

What I say now, I say as a proud former union member and the wife, daughter, and sister of union members. So, as a former card-carrying IBEW sister married to a proud former Laborers, IBEW, and later USW member, please hear me out. What I have to say is for the hard working, patriotic, selfless union brothers and sisters in Michigan and throughout our country: Please don’t be taken in by union bosses’ thuggery like Jim Hoffa represented yesterday. Union bosses like this do not have your best interests at heart. What they care about is their own power and re-electing their friend Barack Obama so he will take care of them to the detriment of everyone else.

To the same degree Americans are concerned about irresponsible, greedy corporate execs who got cushy bonuses from taxpayer-funded bailouts, we should also be concerned about greedy union bosses who are willing to tank our economy just to protect their own power. As union history shows, power and greed corrupt. Just because you claim to represent union members doesn’t mean you are on the side of the angels. The greed of too many of these union bosses has all but destroyed the labor movement in this country, helped chase away our jobs, and is killing the American dream.

Union people are not all far left extremists. Many share our values & vision fir America.
I think Sarah is the only candidate who can speak to them as one of their own and from the heart.

Good comment! It is the thuggery of the union leaders like Hoffa who are in bed with Obama. Most members are not in right to work states, and are forced to become members.
Many union members like Sarah and Tod Palin and their families share our values and beliefs.
As to the rapid response and lasar focus by Sarah, this is a woman who ran a half marathon this weekend in 1:45 and came in second. Never underestimate Sarah. She us a force; she scares them to death!
