Palin gives Cruz control as CPAC closes
The Hill ^ | March 8, 2014 | Alexander Bolton

Posted on 03/08/2014 10:55:56 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) may have won the straw poll, but runner-up Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) won the biggest endorsement on the final night of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the closing speaker at the three-day gathering of activists, touted Cruz and urged conservatives to challenge the GOP’s inside-the-beltway establishment.

“Thank you Texas because liberty needs a Congress on Cruz control,” Palin told an audience that erupted into raucous cheers.

Cruz, who was elected to the Senate after beating Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst — the candidate favored in 2012 by the GOP establishment — has said he would not be in Congress were it not for Palin’s help.

The GOP's 2008 vice presidential nominee did not formally endorse the freshmen senator who is widely believed to be exploring a White House bid. But she lavishly praised his aggressive tactics, which have angered many colleagues in the Senate Republican Conference.

“Last year something did happen. The awaking began and Sen. Ted Cruz helped keep them awake. His filibuster, it worked in waking people up to the folly of a government takeover over another one sixth of our economy,” she said. “He forced debate.”

Cruz’s all-night filibuster in late September protesting the implementation of the Affordable Care Act helped galvanize a conservative backlash that led to a 16-day government shutdown.

Republicans such as Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) were furious over Cruz’s role in the debate. The senior Arizona senator and other colleagues bashed Cruz for provoking a standoff with President Obama without having a clear exit strategy.

Cruz in turn blamed fellow Senate Republicans for not backing up House conservatives who refused to adopt a government funding resolution that allowed the implementation of the healthcare law to proceed.

Palin backed up Cruz’s version of events.

“He told his colleagues it was time, time to stand up, time to use the tools of the Constitution, the power of the purse to fulfill their campaign promises and to stop ObamaCare,” she said. “But our army balked. We hoped they were just reloading but instead they retreated.

“Worse, they joined the lapdogs in the lame-stream to trash the foot soldiers who fought for America,” she added.

Palin extolled Cruz’s memorable reading of Dr. Seuss’s classic work of children’s literature, “Green Eggs and Ham,” during his 21-hour filibuster on the Senate floor.

She recited a modified version of the story to mock Obama’s effort to overhaul the nation’s healthcare laws.

“I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his healthcare scam,” she said before being interrupted by wild applause.

“I do not like these dirty crooks or how they lie and cook the books,” she continued to boisterous laughter.

Overall it was a good night for Cruz, who earned 11 percent of the vote in CPAC’s straw poll. Only Paul who also won last year, outpaced him with 31 percent.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie finished in fourth place behind neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Carson earned 9 percent while Christie collected 8.

Cruz found himself in the Senate GOP conference’s doghouse again recently after colleagues learned he signed a fundraising mailer for the Madison Project, which is trying to knock off Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky’s Senate primary.

Palin urged conservative activists to elect more candidates in the mold of Cruz and his comrade in arms, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), whom she called the "good guys."

“They need their reinforcements because, you see, families are hurting today,” she said.

She fired a shot at GOP leaders who have warned conservative groups not to pressure Senate and House Republican incumbents.

“GOP Beltway boys, you know that 2010 election victory that swept you into power, you didn’t build that. The Tea Party did,” she said to loud applause.

Despite browbeating from colleagues such as McCain and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Cruz has refused to promise to stay out of primaries.

"What I have said is that I'm likely going to stay out of incumbent Republican primaries," he said last month. "I haven't put that in concrete."

Oh yes, “GOP, remember that big win in 2010? You didn’t build that, yo had help from The Tea Party!”. Poor Santorum barely shows up on the popularity poll. I agree with much of his positions, but I don’t think the majority of the country believes as fervently as they did, say twenty or thirty years ago. I know that now.

Well, does that mean that anyone who endorsed such RINO critters was a "lapdog in the MSM" who "trashed the foot solders who fought for America"?????? Were such 'soldiers' among those who were in the army that "balked"????

That means FREE REPUBLIC. FR endorsed one of those 'soldiers' who balked and was a lapdog in the MSM who trashed conservative footsoldiers: FR endorsed Romney. So I took a break from FR.

And FR will endorse whomever is the next GOP (In reality, the GOPe) nominee. We might as well call ourselves freerepublican.com

FR endorsed Romney, well not endorsed, “supported” him after he was selected the Republican Nominee for President against Obama.

Don’t act like anyone here Voted for Romney in the Primaries, because nobody here did as far as I know. If you think someone did, give us some Screen names.

Would you have preferred that FR endorsed Obama?

Levin Rule, look it up. If people followed it Obama would have been a One Termer, which in itself was bad enough.

Millennials are bussed from colleges to CPAC.

_________________________________________________

“.....[Palin] said the midterms offered an opportunity [to] make Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) either minority leader or “a blackjack dealer in Vegas.”

But, she warned existing Republican leadership: “You know that 2010 election victory that swept you into power? You didn’t build that. The tea party did.”

She offered repeated nods to the young people in the audience. Organizers said almost half of the attendees who voted in the conference straw poll were between the ages of 18 and 25.

“I love coming back here because there are always so many young people, or as you’re known by the folks across the river, Obamacare suckers,” she said.

Slightly less well-received was a joke about the “choom gang” — a dig at President Barack Obama over marijuana — shortly after conference organizers said their straw poll found three-fifths of attendees favor legalization of marijuana for either recreational or medical use.”.....

Sarah threw some red meat to us Tea Party people last night, and that’s a good thing. No reaching across the aisle for that gal!

Disappointed that Ted Cruz didn’t poll better but Sarah gave him his place at the table and that is also a good thing.

If you saw the graph showing the age of CPAC voters it was loaded with younger voters. The primaries won’t be. So I look for Cruz to do better unless Libertarians get involved.

It sounds like the liberal media have claimed another victim - Ted Cruz.

All they have to do is go negative, negative, negative, and they win over the `low information voter’ who is not necessarily a “where’s my Obamaphone!?” welfare moron but just someone burdened with job & family who lacks the time to search for all the facts. Make sense?

But then, I don’t keep up with sports since politics is far more consequential to one’s own life. If it’s World War Two, you kept up with war news. Can’t escape it.

FOX still loves them some Bush/Clinton family a great deal. They keep that worm-with-glasses Karl Rove yapping away on all their shows; "cute little" Dana Perino serves as defender of all things Bush; even Steve Doocy got a "big catch" interview with Big Barb last week so she could talk about how Jeb will or would or should or could run for president.

We know how the Bushes and FOX feel about Sarah Palin. I think they're actually hoping the virtual daughter-in-law, Hillary, is the next POTUS.

Yes. I love it too.
Here’s the thing - we must always ridicule them.
Sociopathic Narcissists cannot STAND ridicule. It angers them.

The other thing to do is IGNORE them.
- by NOT accepting their false premises.

I would not even attempt to answer their loaded questions;
“buckeye, are you still beating your wife?”
Answer INSTEAD (with something like)
“This, from a baby-murdering racist. How many black female fetuses have you killed last week?”

Turn it around. Pin them ALL on the wall, for the evil clowns they REALLY are.

Ridicule and ignore - the best 2 tools. They NEVER fail to respond to those. They are compelled. Yes, it is “compulsion”. It’s as easy as pushing a button on one of those robots. Their response is PREDICTABLE.
ENTIRELY predictable.

You obviously also took a break from reality.

FR only supported Romney as the last man standing and in contrast to continuing the disaster that Obama was wreaking upon our Nation. It seems like you are one of those who has such a narrow perspective that you couldn't make the synaptic connection that Romney was the only real choice left to us. How'd that work out?

Doesn’t really make a lot of difference what conservative’s differences are or who the “conservative” side picks. The person who will be running AGAINST the demodummies candidate will be picked by the MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

My only hope is that America will wake up and vote in someone with a STRONG conservative side to rid ourselves of the communists currently in control.

Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Ted Cruz implies the promise that she will campaign for him, just as she did so effectively in his come-from-far-behind Senate victory in Texas.

Which means that every other Republican primary candidate will be competing against the two most charismatic, crowd-pleasing, principled Conservatives in the country.

After more than eight years in the spotlight traveling to help successfully elect Tea Party members to office, Sarah Palin is on a first-name basis with every Conservative official who counts in this country, including those in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, the crucial must-win early primary states.

In any case, how successful can candidates like Chris Christie and Ron Paul — who believes that the greatest threat to America in this time of grave foreign and economic turmoil is the NSA — expect to be among normal, struggling Republican Iowa and New Hampshire voters in two years, even without Sarah and Ted energizing twice as many crowds as they can?

Not to worry, the Ron/Rand Paul Libertarians like to stack the deck at CPAC to make believe that the current Paul running is the most favorite.

This is an annual trick they play, just like they like to spam online polls.

Did you happen to notice how quickly Ted Cruz endorsed John 'Wayne' McCornyn after he won the Senatorial primary in Texas by more than 50% this past Tuesday? Cruz recognized that Cornyn was the last man standing, and he also knew and does know what that means. Ted's quick 'endorsement' was a shot across Cornyn's bow and John knows that. Get it? Dang, I sure hope so. It truly is very simple.

I absolutely despise all the RINOs, every one of them. Nevertheless, when dumbass voters leave us with no other choice then, guess what, we have no other choice. The Democrats have become so openly evil as to make the Devil swell with pride.
