Sarah Palin Releases Presidents Day Video: Preparing For A Brokered Convention?
Mediaite ^ | February 20, 2012 | Meenal Vamburkar

Posted on 02/20/2012 10:07:21 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

In honor of Presidents Day, Sarah Palin released a new video on her political action committee’s website, SarahPAC.com. The move has some asking: is Palin preparing for a brokered convention?

Entitled “Chords of Memory,” the video calls for restoring America — set against the visual backdrop of presidential monuments and Palin herself. Palin begins by saying:

We stand today at the symbolic crossroads of our nation’s history, and all around us are monuments to those who have sustained us over the years in word or deed, the towering presence of the great emancipator who secured our union at the moment of its most perilous time…

In the accompanying statement on the website, she writes:

It is refreshing to reflect on one who was so far removed in spirit from the inside baseball that too often defines politics now. America celebrates President Washington for his decision to serve for the right reasons. Today, we could certainly use a little more Washington in DC and a little less BS in Washington.

Just last week, Palin told Fox Business’ Eric Bolling that in the case of a brokered convention “all bets are off.” Saying she’d do whatever necessary to help America, she added if that meant “running for office at some point in the future, I’m game.”

Of course, the Republican primary race still has a long way to go. Start placing your bets.

That will really frighten the GOP-e who would like to serve us Jeb Bush and, perhaps, Lulu Graham.

As the GOP continues its merry dance toward the black room and the inevitable red death. No white knight will come out of a brokered convention, just another Republican loss and another four years of despair. It is not something to await with glee or a sense of vindication. Here’s hoping for a nominee well in advance of July, and God forbid it’s Romney.

From Ulsterman’s source:

“...if you give this administration four more years…I’ve already said enough on that, right? It’s never going back…the country…this version of America is finished and I got no real idea as to how different it’s gonna be. We won’t recognize it – I know that. I was talking to a fella last week about the Senate…plans to take the Senate. Republicans. As a stop-gap, right? You know what he told me? Looked me straight in the eye and said – “It won’t matter. He has pushed executive authority so far already…it won’t matter. Give him a couple more Supreme Court nominees…it won’t matter. If he gets the White House again…IT WON’T MATTER.”

The missing ingredient in propelling the conservatives/tea party towards a huge victory this fall is Sarah Palin, without a doubt.

Is it time for a petition drive to draft Sarah?

It was time two years ago when I adopted my tagline. By now we have missed the window for getting her name on the primary ballots.

But obviously if she were on the ballots now, she'd have the capability to compete with the remaining candidates, and probably be the only surviving anti Romney by now.

Even now, I can't find a good reason to drop my tagline. But obviously, if we couldn't agree even on FR a year ago, it will be even harder at the Republican national convention.

Sarah from Chords of Memory on President's Day: "We stand today at the symbolic crossroad of our Nation's history. . . around us are monuments to those that have sustained us. . those mystic chords have bound us in gratitude to those who are willing to sacrifice to restrain evil, to protect God given liberty. . . and they endured. . . We shall endure. . Let's Restore America!"

She's running if called. .

Watching the news and listening to them talk about the possibility of a brokered convention, the only names you hear are daniels, jeb bush, and christie. It’s as if Sarah Palin didn’t even exist.

Diminish what you fear. What if 2 million Tea Party Palin backers showed up at the convention?

DRAFT PALIN - but obviously, if we couldn't agree even on FR a year ago, it will be even harder at the Republican national convention.
I keep thinking there HAS to be a way.
Well, there is this hopeful sign - that I saw a post from someone who admitted that they had been glad when Gov. Palin announced that she wasn’t running, and said that having seen all the other announced candidates get savaged the same way Palin had been, he now realized that she was the class of the field.
Maybe there is hope . . .

Seems to me the opposite is true. Remember the media is not our friend and they certainly are not Sarah’s friends. Intelligent people are seeking other sources of information.
Honest sources tell us that Sarah has been right about everything she has addressed, from death panels to crony capitalism. I think she is silently gaining a lot of support and God willing she will find a way to lead us out of this morass.

Other than FNC, CPAC and FR where does she have an audience at all? Preaching to the choir hardly counts as growing her audience and her influence.
