Skip to comments.Governor Palin Takes NY State by Storm (20,000+ show up!)
Posted on 06/06/2009 4:22:28 PM PDT by Virginia Ridgerunner
More than 20,000 people turned out to see Palin lead a parade through downtown Auburn and sign a proclamation honoring Seward, the 19th-century Secretary of State who negotiated the $7.2 million deal with Russia for Alaska, which is celebrating its 50th year of statehood.

So how many have been showing up at Romney’s events lately?
As former Fairbanks AK resident I found this story very cool
WOW 20,000..NICE..take THAT media!!
Exactly the Palin phenomina seems quite strong still.
He had 50 town employees show up in Haddonfield, NJ !!
Of course, I was later told half of them didn't know who was coming but went anyway because it was a nice day and they got to go outside. LOL !
Excellent to see.
Governor Palin must now start to demonstrate the intellectual framework of her agenda and a clear intellectual understanding of the issues that this current President is going to leave the country
If she can intelligently articulate the problems of this country, and the proper solutions, she can be a force. That stupid Katie Couric interview still haunts her, and she still has a bit to do before she can start to regain the middle.
Good to see she firmly has the right.
I was born in Anchorage, Territory of Alaska (Seward’s Icebox)
Great story, Go Sarah !
Please visit my state.
Compare Sarah with Jennifer Granholm. Both were beauty contestants. One is a successful, popular governor of a prosperous state, while the other is an increasingly unpopular governor of a state with a dismal economy and high unemployment. One is ridiculted by the MSM and by democrats and their followers. The other was on the short list for a Supreme Court nomination. hmmm...
Please run for governor of my state!
Gov. Palin also had crowds of people approach to greet her
on the streets, and places she visited in the Auburn ,
encouraging her to run in 2012.
The photos of this were outstanding.
Will look forward to her event on Long Island and Westchester Sunday.
Of those mentioned in the running for 12 or the hangerons,
as has been said before, they don’t have the draw and enthusiasm from the crowds as Gov. Palin.
I’ve said it before but it needs repeating: we need to get Sarah Palin out to the next big Tea Party event. Period.
I was 16 years old, living in Anchorage, when Alaska was admitted into the Union. What a party it was!
It is still my favorite state, still have friends there, and go up every few years. They all love Sarah up there.
bah, thats nothing, obama gets millions
However, she has demonstrated a clear understanding of the issues. As for an intellectual framework — if that's what most leading politicians have and Palin doesn't; then she's better off without one. For John Kerry, an “intellectual framework” meant endless nuances & flip-flopping. For BHO, it meant vacuous platitudes. As for his agenda; apparently much of it was hidden, until after the election.
If you're actually “doing” the right things; then it doesn't require an “intellectual framework" to justify it. When what you're doing makes no sense; it requires a lot of intellectualizing to attempt to square the circle.
Sarah in 2012
20,000? I don’t think Auburn’s population is much larger than that...it’s a small town. Maybe people coming in from Syracuse..?
The funny thing is hes not the biggest threat to Sarah. I got a feeling it will be self inflicted if things go like they have been.
Sarahcuda Bump!!! 2012!!!
Auburn only has a population of 28,000 and it’s heavily democrat. Syracuse news coverage was more decent than I expected. They interviewed a Virginia couple that traveled 12 hours to see Sarah, and a couple wearing all their Alaska gear. Out of an estimated 20,000 people screaming Sa-RAH, Sa-RAH, they found a rumpled protestor who tried to bring up the unfortunate stereotypes about her, and an admitted lefty gal who said it’s a great day for Auburn and she came out to see what Sarah had to say.
The remarks she made at City Hall were brief, but sweet and witty. She gave a longer speech inside the Seward House. I’m trying to find a transcript of that. She’s reported to have made some comments on 0’s policies.
Sarah, Todd and Willow were in town yesterday as tourists at the Harriet Tubman House, and the Women’s Historical National Park and the Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls.
I think I found a tagline...regarding the VAT she said, "There is nothing value-added about ANY tax". I'm in love...LOL.
If you’re keeping a Ping List for ‘Sarah Sitings’ would you please add me? Thanks!
Go, Sarah! Go! :)
Thanks for the link. I admire her. It’s so refreshing to see LEADERSHIP from an elected official. :)
Romney and his minions have been trying to undermine and destroy Governor Palin ever since McCain selected her as his VP running mate. His flip-flopping, opportunism, and RINO socialism aside, I'll never forgive him for that and will take every opportunity to ram a big stick in his eye on this forum.
My good FRiend SolidWood takes care of the Palin PING list, and through this post, will certainly add you to it.
I know one thing.
She draws bigger crowds than the Washington Nationals have this week, COMBINED !...lol
Bumper stickers and T-shirts in the Healy household which are ready to go.
That looked like a full blown campaign event to me !
“So how many have been showing up at Romneys events lately?”
Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark! Rom-dog is ok but he’s no Sarah. He is likeable though imho, a good candidate. So who have we got? Sarah, Romney, Jindal...anyone else realistically? I think Sarah would destroy Obama in a debate by contrast. We do need someone who can control the media narrative and be a “rock star” as much as that can be lame.
And FWIW, I’ve been wearing my hair in a ‘Sarah Flip’ and wearing my ‘Sarah Glasses’ (I had them before she did!) to drive the LibTards I work with insane. ;)
I’ll keep it up through 2012 and beyond; it’s kinda fun! :)
You nailed it. That's what sets her apart from other pols, even conservative ones...the ability to lead and inspire. Reagan had it. Palin is younger and less experienced than Reagan when he ascended to the national scene, but she has it as well.
Took the words right out of my mouth.
Lead. Follow. Or get OUT of Sarah’s way! ;)
"At one point, Palin said she shared with Susan B. Anthony a desire for the protection of women. "For me, that includes our youngest sisters, girls in the womb," she said."
It looked like a campaign event, but the town fathers of Auburn, home of Seward House, started working on this months before Sarah was nominated. They went to Google and looked up “Alaska Governor”.
Republican presidential candidates don’t spend much time in New York State. I was thrilled with the welcome she got, as Auburn is a democrat town, and the Women’s History attractions nearby are solid left. Let’s see if Sarah can ever get nominated to the Women’s Hall of Fame, much less as quickly as Gerry Ferraro did.
Excellent comparison between Palin and Granholm.
Ha! I luv it!
NY might survive if they toss out the NYC welfare state and the Albany political class. You notice how little time Sen HRC spent in the upstate areas or how hard the taxes and green nazi regulations killed the industries of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse et. al.
“She draws bigger crowds than the Washington Nationals have this week, COMBINED !...lol”
LMAO...you are SO right, ohioconservative. I turned down freebies right behind 3rd base for tomorrow—and it’s supposed to be a gorgeous day here. It’s just way too painful to watch.
Palin's trip was paid for by her political action committee, SarahPAC. Palin's trips have been an issue in the past. The Alaska governor has been given until June 23 to reimburse the state for an estimated $10,000 in costs associated with trips taken by her children, under an agreement resolving an ethics complaint against her.
And the obligatory anti-Palin observer:
Local resident Chris Stone, with his wife and three children, said he didn't care for Palin's politics but didn't want to miss the chance to see her in person. "You can see by the turnout, she's become a personality and a historical figure," said Stone, who voted for Obama. "I know all these people aren't Republicans. This is a chance to see someone who has had a big impact on history."
And the obligatory anti-Palin protest:
As she spoke, about a dozen protesters from the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, a lobbying group that seeks to protect wildlife and the environment, held up signs condemning her continued promotion of the aerial hunting of wolves, but the large crowd was mostly receptive to her appearance.
Wonder why Drudge hasn’t mentioned her appearance?
Neither Elizabeth Cady Stanton nor Susan B. Anthony accepted abortion as a means for women to control their own lives. They considered it heinous, and just another way for MEN to control women. They would not even recognize the 'Women's Movement' of today.
