Posted on 02/12/2012 4:23:57 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin strode out on stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington carrying a red leather briefcase and off to work she went, firing off a years worth of sarcastic one-liners at Professor Obama.
He promised to transform America, and thats one promise hes kept; he transformed a shining city on a hill into a sinking ship.
This government isnt too big to fail; its too big to succeed.
Hope and change? Yeah, you gotta hope things change.
After a year or two [in Obamas Washington, lawmakers] decide its not really a cesspool. More like a hot tub.
Whoop-inducing as all this was, it flat-out depressed some in the crowd.
Why? Because that was the speech that could unify the Republican Party, said Iowan Craig Bergman. If we picked our candidate with the applause-o-meter, wed have our nominee in the former Alaska governor. I think the Republicans are not going to win because shes not running.
After Palin closed the annual event, Bergman and a few friends were discussing how Mitt Romney, the self-described severely conservative governor of Massachusetts who didnt sound like he thought that was a good thing could possibly have won the straw poll. (Mormon infiltrators, posited one man, who seemed to be only half-kidding.)
Others at CPAC described Palin as a pivotal figure but implied that she belongs to history now...

How much drivel analysis can one take before one’s mind turns to mush and glazed-over eyes finally close in death. We may never find out.
Whoever she endorses will probably win.
Or whoever is blessed with her as a running mate....
I know, but I can dream, can’t I?
Loved this speech.
And I loved the throw-away line that she used after making fun of Dear Leader’s “Winning the Future” acronym. She said, “And I’m the idiot!?”
2DV, I watched her speech this afternoon and felt like I was going to wake up from a bad dream to discover that this was all a joke and that she was in fact running. The difference in the amount of energy Sarah Palin can rouse and that of any of the other candidates is like the difference between a Tom Brady or Eli Manning and the QB for the junior high school down the street...
We shall see, I never say never to anything, but while we may be forced to choose amongst the lesser of evils, we know who the best choice would be.
I know what you mean. When I watch a good Palin speech, it immediately takes me back to those days of Reagan, when I’d find myself literally standing up and cheering at the tv-screen. So many, many years have gone by since that time, and I’d pretty much given up on ever expecting to have such a reaction about a politician again, in which they really, REALLY speak for me... politically, ideologically and culturally.
She can’t possibly inspire. I read here on FR that her voice is too shrill.
>>THIS IS PALIN COUNTRY<<<
Those are Romney trolls and liberals trying to disparage her because they are wee-weed up that she made such a great speech at CPAC. She makes such a big contrast against their empty suit candidates.
They can't make any other criticisms because they will out themselves as the libs that they are.
“we have TWO left-of-center parties ruling Washington.”
We actually have one republicrat party in D.C. that has two faces pretending to oppose each other.
This is to fool the sheeple into believing they are actually represented, while the professional politicians maintain their wealth and power at the expense of the worker class that actually produces the wealth.
Isn’t that how communism works, despite how great it “works” in theory?
