No Sarah at Republican Convention... TV Ratings Pludge!
IFB ^ | 8/30/12

Posted on 08/30/2012 7:25:05 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman

Out of the midst of our nation have risen many - but one in particular today - whose love for God and country has placed her on the center stage of the conservative movement. One who the masses of common folk greatly respect and admire. One who has become a “mother” in these United States of America in an hour of crisis. One who has the vision and passion that our founders once possessed. One who has spoken out against to political machines of the Left and Republican establishment; and finally, one who has a fear of Almighty God to govern her and to do the right thing in these last days of America.

It would be through the roof my dear friends! One thing that has really frosted many of our Tea Party pumpkins was not having Sarah speak at the RNC Establishment Convention. To leave out Sarah not from this convention is absolutely abominable!

I just saw on the Drudge Report that the TV rating for this RNC convention are way down... like 41% down with out Sarah Palin! Could you imagine what the enthusiasm and ratings would be if Sarah was invited to this convention... Shazam! They would be through the roof my dear friends! One thing that has really frosted many of our Tea Party pumpkins was not having Sarah speak at the RNC Establishment Convention. To leave out Sarah from this convention is absolutely abominable! Sarah is the face of the Tea Party and the Tea Party has been the fire in the belly of Americans across this land to rid this nation of the Marxist Obama. Sarah has been so key in rallying Americans and these TV ratings speaks volumes to her being rejected. I personally have not watched one lick so far of this convention, just listened to the recaps and reviews on Rush and Vicevich the following day. We love Sarah Palin up here and when she gets diss'd by the moderate establishment so do we my fellow Tea Partiers. I hope you see that. They have us do all the work and then they mow our lawns. Despicable! Absolutely despicable!

Here me again my dear friends... When the Republican Establishment (RE) blocks out and shuns one of America's most energizing TRUE conservative they are also shunning out you and me. Make no mistake about it. They are taking you and me as fools and for granted and that dog ain't gonna hunt! ..

When the Republican Establishment (RE) blocks out and shuns one of America's most energizing TRUE conservative they are also shunning out you and me.

The Republican Establishment - who adhere to moral relativism and moderate fiscal policies - are the reason we as a nation are where we are today (in ruins socially/fiscally). Their rubber spine has caved on almost every delusion, falsehood and lawless agenda that the Left has put forth. They have been a door mat for the Red Democratic party of today and have been a fifth column against TRUE conservatism in the Republican Party itself. The RE are always afraid of what will be stated about them in the Main Stream Media and the lawless base and masses of the Democratic Left. The RE has moved towards the Left over the last 15 years and adheres to subtle socialistic policies that have opened the door wide open to the final dismantling of our nation by president Obama. Who can ever forget how the "RE" threw Sarah under the "Straight Talk Express" bus to save face with the godless Left, media and the moderates. I am still ripping over that and so are countless other Tea Party members and solid American conservatives. The Republican Party has NOT received a dime from me and others since then and it looks like it will continue to be that way.

Who can ever forget how the "RE" threw Sarah under the "Straight Talk Express" bus to save face with the godless Left and media.

I am so glad that Sarah has remained independent from the RE, for she has had more freedom to speak her voice and rally TRUE Americans around our Founding Father's vision and the U.S. Constitution. Sarah has also separated herself from the Washington political "beltway" which has given her a position of power an influence that she would not be able to express if she had to exist in that D.C. wasteland. Just Sarah's presence these last few years has revived and fired up the true American spirit and has rallied the masses to stand and take their country back! To cast Sarah aside and mock her is the height of folly and I'll tell you straight out why... for we TRUE American conservatives are already fed up and holding our noses with Mittens. Anymore dismissing of TRUE conservatives (social/fiscal) and we will abandon the ship come this November. I know that I speak for thousands of Americans also. Our nation is already done for and a few more months of "whoever" that is elected into office whether it be the commie secularist or the moderate socialist will make no difference to me. Many of us will be voting this November for the lesser of two evils knowing right well that there is no more saving the American dream. We are now living in a day of delusional narcissistic ignorance, abounding Constitutional lawlessness, horrific social and fiscal decline and devastation and EXPONENTIAL leftist media bias 24/7/365. The Day of the Lord is at hand America and the Four Horsemen are about to ride! It is time to put down the Constitution and pick up the MIGHTY Word of Almighty God and see the ETERNAL in light of the temporal (John 17:17, Eph. 5:16-17, 1 John 2:15-17). May it be that ALL those who are TRUE believers in the Savior of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ; who have a position of influence and access to the media put aside the politics of now and lift up the Name of the KING of GLORY and get out His message of salvation to all Americans (1 Cor. 2:2, Gal. 6:14, Eph. 5:16-17). For indeed the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Day of the Lord is at hand America and the Four Horsemen must ride! It is time to put down the Constitution and pick up the Word of Almighty God and see the ETERNAL in light of the temporal!

It is in times like these that the remnant to whom possess the true spirit of America and its founding cry out to the God of William Bradford, George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Rush etc, who possessed a saving relationship to Almighty God; that Almighty God in His GREAT kindness may show this nation a little more of His WONDROUS grace and mercy before the "Day of the Lord" arrives!

Sarah Palin is a leader in whom Almighty God has seemed to have risen up to stand for the vision that our Founders once possessed. She possesses all of the founding father's American qualities and has been bold to proclaim them. Any Republican Establishment slight towards her is a slight towards the God fearing Americans who believes and adheres to our Founders deals and vision and we WILL NOT take it lightly.

She (Sarah) possesses all of the founding father's American qualities and is the right leader for the right time.

The sunset is going down fast on America and "the Day of the Lord" will soon be at hand. May it be that Almighty God will grant this nation a little more space so that His Word may continue to go out and that the masses of American people would repent and be saved (Rom. 2:4). for that is what this little world is all about!

May it be that Almighty God will grant this nation a little more space so that His Word may continue to go out and that the masses of American people would repent and be saved!

The trumpet may blow at any time, but while we are here waiting the Lord’s soon return, may we all do our part to help slow the flood of lawlessness and the lawlessness that has saturated or society and nation. May it be our sincere desire to pray for America and it awakening to the realities at hand. For in the end, whatever becomes of her, our hope is NOT in America and our Constitution, but our HOPE is in Almighty God and in His Son Jesus Christ (Col. 1:27, 1 Tim. 1:1 )! Always remember my dear friends in the light of these temporal settings the BIG picture that the Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!

FOX can piss off anyway, they attacked Newt, helped to get Romney and never ever including Hannity mention how the homostapo are using NAZI thuggery etc.

They got their boy elected and like the GOP thinks all out conservatives not the half assed ones who only care about their own taxes have no where to go.

Look I’ve wanted a Palin candidacy since day one.

We could have had one.

PALIN decided we would not have one this time around.

It is time to run a campaign.

I wonder what would have happened if instead of Clint Eastwood doing his Harvey act instead he introduces anew mystery guest, who has been flown in under deep secrecy.

And instead Sarah Palin gives a speech, or she and Clint trade barbs against Obama.

I’m sure at some stage Romney debated whether to bring in Sarah, maybe he chose wrong, only time will tell, and time waits for no man or woman.

As good as Eastwood was it just wasn’t quite enough I think.

Sarah is far too smart and classy to stoop to these big government socialists. Maybe she had no desire to be in a room with a bunch of hypocrites that despise her.

Palin was given ten minutes but the Romney people had to approve her speech, so she didn’t do it.

Romney’s people went over every speech given to take out what they didn’t want. They took out the two words, “Tea Party” so it never appeared in a speech.

Excellent idea. And what about giving Rush speaking time, and Trump too? How about Sgt. R. Lee Ermey? Those folks know how to pull in an audience. But no, the GOP can't do anything with any flair.

I tuned in about 9:15, and was bored silly. After ten minutes, I switched channels to Pawn Stars.

The time you speak of is at hand, but it will get a lot worse before it the Lord comes again.
The socialist are alive and well in the Repuglican party and they hold the seats of power like the conspiring men they are. It is up to us to slay them and put their kind on the sideline. This will take quite a few more election cycles.
The formation of the American Dependence Party starts on November 7 and I can think of ni better figure head to lead the way than Sarah Pain my write in choice for President.

Well, it’s been a fantastic convention.

I am not even joking, I’ve been moved to tears more than once.

Too bad she didn’t run. I would certianly have voted for her. However, Mitt ran, and he won, and I am most certainly going to vote for him.

WR, Indeed my friend

A couple of global events will send us to economic ruin we are quite there. Whoever wins in Nov. (Romney) They will be left with the sinking titanic which has filled up with 85 water and has about 15 minutes to go... No man now can stop that... that should get all to cry out to God! May it be!

Exactly Bush “fiscal” socialist conservatives!

I hear ya but.. I think she has more power being outside the beltway. I like her just where she is. The media can’t get her out side as she has been. Of course... they still take shots but she has more freedom out there to give it to the leftists which drives them nuts!

“How can mitten’s just wipe out the Tea Party?”

He wiped it out from this convention and with the new rule he wants, and the way was paved to do that, he can choose every delegate to the next national convention if he wins this election. He will only choose Romney liberal people for delegates. Conservatives won’t be there. That why I say the party is now “Bain 2 Party”.

My friend. I hear you. I like what they stated but it is second best and we need solid conservatism (social (moral) and fiscal) to slow things down not watered down socialistic moderate conservatism.

So am I my friend. The lesser of two evils... we owe it to our founders. We will just slow it down a little.. we can never go back... we are too far gone.

It may be true that we are too far gone.

I just don’t know. I pray to God that is not the case.

What I do know is that we must take the steps we can when we can take them.

To say a step is not good enough and then not take it is to fail.

Fisherman, I just watched Romney’s speech.

I wasn’t going to watch it. I had to talk myself into it. I didn’t want to be disappointed and let down. I’ve loved the other speeches, even Rubio was great, but Mitt, you know, Mitt is Mitt and I don’t want to be brought down.

Mitt Romney moved me to tears. I can’t believe I’m saying that, but that’s what happened. He speech was just absolutely magnificent.

He’s a warm man. He’s a sincere man. He has a soul and he spoke from his heart. He didn’t use a teleprompter lie assister, because he isn’t a liar and doesn’t need such a device.

He’s more liberal than I am, no doubt, but my opinion of him has changed. I want Mitt Romney to be my president, and so I will vote for him.

God Bless America.

Pludge --

To apply a software update before it has been widely adopted, potentially exposing yourself to bugs or other undesirable effects.

OS 10.5 looks sweet, I just hope it doesn't hose my machine.

You're right, that was ugly.

“...I am most certainly going to vote for him.”

Me too brother.

I have said, since the day Obama got “immaculated” as Limbaugh says, that I will vote for the Republican nominee against him in 2008.

I will do everything I can possibly do to ensure I will not be voting for the republican nominee against the dem candidate in 2016, assuming there would even be one.

Obama needs to go, he was never qualified to be president (not because he was born overseas), he’s done a dreadful job.

It’s time to give the other guy a chance. Romney is a pretty good “other guy”. Maybe not the ideal for many people here, and many who have never been here.

But, he’s a heck of a lot better than the anti-American, communist, faculty lounge marxist we have in the WH right now.

I heard parts of Romney's speech on the radio (I don't watch TV) and none of Clint Eastwood's. From the transcript, it doesn't seem to me that I missed much with the latter. What would have electrified the otherwise predictable RNC convention (besides a hurricane) would have been to have Sarah Palin. What's Romney afraid of? That she'll upstage him? Wouldn't take much. I did hear the things he wanted to work on to improve and was aghast to hear "education". Every single time a politician has put their non-educator outsider fingers on education, they have had horrific consequences. First we had "No Child Left Behind"--a dictate not supported by funding--and then we have "Race to the Top", pitting school against school and demanding certain curricula (leftwing, of course).

All of the griping about and condemnation of teachers on this board is largely undeserved. WHAAAAAT? you say. That's right. Teachers are forced to teach what their administrators and school board tell them to teach, if they want to keep on teaching (and paying that mortgage). The often absurd wackola things that are brought up on this board usually don't originate from the teacher, but from higher up the food chain. As I said, politicians who know nothing about education but whose ear is raptly attuned to some slick talking "progressive" educator (touting usually unfounded stories of success for schools following their program) then seize upon a "looks good on paper" idea from one of their ivory tower leftist "educator" advisors and force it on their school system. The programs almost always fail dismally because they are not based on what really happens in classroom. Teachers get blamed for the horrible results.

A case in point: the "workshop model" in NYC schools. There are about 43 minutes in a class period. You have 10 minutes for "whole class teaching". Then, the students are supposed to break into groups for "cooperative learning" for 20 minutes. Never mind you lose 5-10 minutes waiting for them to move their desks into their groups. Then you have 10 minutes to "summarize" the lesson. What if someone, G-d forbid, asks a question? Are you supposed to say, "No, Johnny, can't answer your question. You'll throw off my timing."? What if--I know it could never happen--a student MISBEHAVES and disrupts the class? Oops. Threw off your timing again. If you think I am kidding, I can tell you for a fact that administrators have come into classrooms with STOPWATCHES to make sure the teacher adheres to the workshop model, and that teachers have received unsatisfactory ratings for the lesson if they spent 12 minutes teaching or the kids spent 18 minutes in cooperative groups. The latest? Mayor Bloombutt has now dictated that students may NOT be suspended for smoking, cursing, leaving the premises without permission, etc. So how on earth do they expect classes to function if the kids know they will have no consequences, anything goes? This is when politicians think they know better than professional educators and feel the need to micromanage that about which they are totally clueless.

So Mr. Romney--PLEASE keep your wool-covered MITTS out of education. Leave it for the professionals. You'll have plenty else on your plate to occupy your time, I promise.

not just about Sarah though is it.

The way FOX shilled for Romney over Newt ETC,\ It’s the way FOX ignores other issues like how the homostapo is intimidating people, how they go after people.
It’s news, we know it out there but FOX is socially liberal, then look at Sally Khon[]kohn] Geradlo, Smith who said it was the day of intolerance, Beckel and his boring disgusting comments every week.

FOX is like the GOP, they think we have no where to go and they certainly seem to think the Ny area the north east is what America is and it is not.
