I’m usually a big fan of Palin. But this speech was lifeless.

Rick....
Why did they disable comments at GOOGLE after 303?

A possible crash of positivity? Or Obamabots spewing hate?

Hmmm..

Sad Nick Barkley died yesterday, we could use somebody with Balls!

She has some big Brass ones.

Peace out... whatever that means.

She rocked that house.

“Bullshit. She rocked.”

I thought her nomination speech in 2008 was one of the best political speeches I have heard in 30 years. This one, not so much—distracted, wandering, mailed-it-in. I really wanted to like it . . .

But if you think she rocked, then rock on. It’s really kind of hard to have an argument about two very different subjective reactions.

“Did you hear the new Stones song? It’s great.”

“Huh-uh”

“Uh-huh”

“Bullshit”

Everyone listening thinks: “Oh man, he must know what he’s talking about. He said ‘bullshit.’”

Yawn.

Good night and God bless.

This speech reminded me a whole lot of the 2008 convention speech in every way, including its effectiveness. I thought it was the best TV appearance I’ve seen from her since that convention speech.

I have to agree with the speech being a dud. It wandered with no theme to it. I am sure I will get flamed but in my opinion she said nothing but a few talking points and just rambled.

I’m not seeing what you guys are not seeing...

She was in her element, and the audience was right there with her. Yeah, towards the end there was a meandering moment, but it was brief.

No doubt charisma is a factor, and not everyone reacts the same to it. I just like her values and attitude. And I believe she’s sincere about it.

I love how people can insert their own biases and blind themselves in order to see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear regardless of what happened.

I thought the handling of the heckler left a bit to be desired, but beyond that was coy, on message and had a great message. She also gave a verbal slap down to Newt and Romney thinking that they’re the “true conservative” in the race and everyone should step aside and roll out the red carpet. I don’t think she walks on water, but it was a good speech and the auidence response was also well received. Her speech seemed to be 180 degrees from the pro-Romney result of CPAC....what an unusual way to wrap it up (YEA, Romney...you’re crap).

Just because the adjectives, “distracted, wandering and mailed-it-in” are more socially acceptable, doesn't mean they are more meaningful. Every write up I've seen suggested that her speech generated more enthusiasm from the crowd, than all the other speakers combined. 2008 was a speech for the history books, but her CPAC speech was a very good one, based on content and crowd reaction.

Only one thing missing from the speech - Sarah didn’t reference Moochelle’s spending $50,000 on underwear (lingerie).

BINGO.

Great speech, it’s CPAC.

Unfortunately, ModelBreaker, I agree with you.

Governor Palin mailed this one in.

Such a disappointment after Newt’s powerful “reset” speech.

Her speech lacked the line I most wanted to hear: “For family reasons, I could not run for president of the United States this year, but Todd and my children have already agreed that three years from now, at CPAC 2015, they are okay with me announcing my 2016 candidacy for the White House.” Otherwise, it was one of the best political speeches of the year.

Even the leftist media, not that we needed their validation, for the most part admitted that Sarah brought the house down and gave a speech that overwhelmed all of the other Presidential candidates speeches there at CPAC, including Newts. So that’s very noteworthy.

Everyone can have their opinion of course, I’m just observing that those opinions that panned her speech to be very low so far. In fact quite a number of people have said that the “perfect candidate to face Obama isn’t running”

I guess that explains the audience standing and cheering through almost the whole speech./S

To quote YOU:

“a verbal slapdown to Newt and Romney”

I googled “Sarah Palin Newt Gingrich Conservative” and here are a few headlines from the first page results:

So she comes to CPAC and piles on Newt’s campaign, in a speech portion that equally piles on Romney’s campaign??

You might have been hearing things you wanted to believe.

I tried to state that in a kind way.

thank you. i searched last night and couldn’t find the 3rd part (which i thought was weird)

Sarah was explaining what is conservatism, why the Constitution is important, and why we need to get rid of 0failure.

to me, she is the only one that can bring out the whole base. only Santorum has a glimmer of the right stuff, but i don’t think he’s got the buzz to make it happen. romney’s mormonism eliminates him as he loses 10-20% of the base. gingrich might not have the repulsion factor of romney, but people are not stirred by him... resulting in the whole base not coming out to vote.

right now, the ‘election math’ goes to the left.

Sarah only needs to put her hat in the ring... and the country will have a chance. i realize she wants to keep her family safe... but i hope she understands, if the left wins, her family will be in mortal danger along with the rest of us.

if she ran, i’d volunteer for her ss detail for free. she’s the only hope i see of saving this country

No one “stirs” like Palin, agreed.

Disagree that people aren’t stirred by Newt.

They certainly were, and many still are, in fact, that’s one of his biggest claims to fame...his debates and speeches do have the ability to stir people. Without that, he wouldn’t be anywhere.

Newt’s CPAC speech was riveting, a winner.

His last debate performance before FL wasn’t up to his usual standard. Staff said he was tired and nursing a cold.

BUT, polls and contest performances by Newt fell off the table after Romney overwhelmed him with negative, false ads to the tune of about 20 million in a few days time.

A batch of attacks from so called conservatives in the so called conservative media piled on at exactly the same time.

Palin DENOUNCED all of that and came to Newt’s strong defense.

However, Newt “stirring people” when compared to Palin?

No one compares to her.

One thing Newt has, which Palin understands and it causes her to be supportive...I didn’t say officially endorse...is experience in successfully making big change happen in Washington DC.

Without that, even his debate and speech performances would be hollow, empty shells.

NO ONE has been attacked with the level of ferocity, hatred and outright lies that Sarah has. NO ONE.

a few tv commercials is nothing compared to what she has weathered.

and how you weather the storm is the mark of a leader. political adversaries are nothing compared to foreign leaders bent on our nations destruction (not to mention the domestic ones...)

newt's fame was predicated by Reagan. newt used it to help push the agenda, and that is good. problem is, newt isn't a leader like Reagan. he's a middle right conservative that has made his career and fortune in washington politics. Americans know he won't bite too hard at the hand that fed him.

but Americans know... Sarah will gut that pig given a chance... and this is what brings them to their feet.

true hope.

I hope you understand me.

I do not believe it is either Sarah or NOBODY.

Sarah has the control button.

She didn’t run.

If you can manipulate a convention of delegates that are pledged to Newt, Mitt, Santorum and Paul to nominate her, and she accepts, great.

If not, I don’t go off to whimper and believe there is no one else who can be successful.

Newt in my view is the closest thing.

I think Sarah thinks so, too.
