Skip to comments.CPAC 2012: Sarah Palin cleans out the Washington hot tub
Posted on 02/12/2012 9:30:17 AM PST by Art in Idaho
None of the Republican presidential candidates got anything like the response Sarah Palin earned from the CPAC crowd. Not even close. I lost count of the standing ovations.
Is it easier to get the whole crowd surging to its feet when youre not a candidate, and nobody in the audience has an axe to grind? Maybe, but no other speaker at CPAC rocked the house like Palin did, either.
Could there be some residual protective affection warming a crowd that remembers how Palin was savaged during her days on the McCain ticket, and even more brutally attacked during the Lefts bizarre and despicable attempts to pin the Jared Loughner murders on her? Perhaps. Conservative audiences honor those who fight for their ideals, and never sell out. Selling out is easy. The rewards can be rich.

Unforutnately, in politics some things can be bought.
Her speech not in the news at all, of course. . .
Well, Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” did make mention of it when he had he on his show. Of course, he wasted almost all of the time for her interview with stupid stuff.
First, he kept trying to get her to dis Romney. (He tried to get her to endorse someone, but I won’t hold that against him, as any of the mediacrats would love to be the one to break that story.)
Second, and much worse, he showed clips from the stupid HBO movie that is being made about her VP run and asked her to comment on them.
Really burned me up. He didn’t bother to try to get her to articulate policy. He pulled a similar stunt with Santorum by using up most of the interview time in arguing with Santorum about homo “marriage”.
I really don’t put any stock in the results of the straw poll at CPAC, and I wonder how many people do consider it significant.
My plan is to keep backing and praying for Santorum.
CPAC endorsed Romney in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
CPAC endorsed Ron Paul in 2010 and 2011.
What a missed opportunity by Chris Wallace ....
You are much kinder than I. You can call it a missed opportunity; I view it as a deliberate attempt to dilute her message.
I certainly agree. I tell people she's the real deal, but that doesn't even come close.
Wow—an excellent article—thanks for posting.
I listened to this speech yesterday,and got misty eyed thinking about what might have been.
I know she would be one of the best Presidents ever to grace to the Oval Office, and I cannot think of a finer one to get in there and erase the stains from The Chicago community organizer.
I know she would never put her feet on the furniture.
May God be merciful to us and give her a chance to be our President. The sooner, the better.
If the GOP “mucks” this election up, they are going the way of the Whigs.
She Will be President some day. . I agree, the sooner the better. VP would be an excellent venue with Newt. . but don't know if she would consider it. . now.
When the people investigation the vote, actually approve of the outcome, doubtful you will see a change in the result, unless they find more votes for Mitt.
