Skip to comments.Why tea party patriots should support Sarah Palin should she decide to run
Posted on 11/28/2009 12:28:57 PM PST by Jim Robinson
She's a God, Country, Family, small government, no nonsense traditional Christian conservative. She's an outsider not corrupted by business as usual Washington politics. They hate her. She's pro defense. An army mom. She's pro-gun. Hunts, fishes and enjoys the great outdoors. She eats corrupt office holders and wasteful spenders for lunch. She drills for oil. She's a fighter. A winner!
She's the exact opposite to Obama in all respects. She's an American patriot!
In short, she's exactly what we the grassroots tea party patriots are looking for.
Count me in. I really hope she runs.
She has my attention so far.
I’ll see who else runs first but I can guarantee she’ll get my vote if she becomes the nominee.
I’m considering it...but am waiting for her to change her position on offering illegal aliens “path to citizenship” amnesty.
Count me in.
I hope she runs because she can win. A few months ago she was down by 15 points against Obama, now she is only down 3, and she hasn’t even announced anything yet. That is why the libs are terrified of her, because she is gaining and Obama is tanking and they know she can beat him. She has my full support
Sarah’s a winner, she’ll win at whatever she chooses to do, where she chooses to go, she’s a winner.
During Rush’s interview, she stated that she was against illegals getting free health care. I wish he had given her more time to talk about illegal immigration.
Go Sarah Go!!!!!!!
Couldn’t say it better. She is the female Reagan. All American values and guts!
She has my support and pretty much all the support of my 912 group.
Thank you Jim Rob for getting this out. Now if we can get Jim Thompson on board.....
Things could change.
But, I really don’t see anyone else at this time.
Amen! I do hope she runs in 2012. I think we’ll know for sure after the 2010 bloodbath. I have a good feeling she will be front and center, leading the way.
I do think Sarah was the answer to all of our prayers for a second chance.
Let’s not blow this one.
I have every confidence in her. I guess that is “slobbering” and “worshipping” to some A-holes who are such cowards they can’t admit they love Romney.
I’m torn Jim, cuz I’d also like to see Dick Cheney run. Probably won’t happen, so I won’t be forced to choose.
As you say, “should she decide to run”.
I think that is something we'd ALL love to see!!! But with his heart condition and 2012 being 3 years away, it doesn't look good.
However, I would not be surprised if he wound up in her admin, perhaps as advisor???
We owe you an even bigger thank that words do not do it justice when we say thank you, here is why.....
When she was elected what some 3 yrs ago or so, some Alaskan Freeper posted an article about her. About 10 or so responded, maybe 20. I remember saying, hey lets keep an eye on this lady, she could be material for our bench down the road.
Out to coffee w/ Conservative friends, over the next two years, they would ask what is going on, I'd tell them watch this Sarah, I was following her on FR, again AK or other posters followed her progress as well.
You have created a window for America's collective vision for a desire to mantain our Liberty, and to follow those who we choose to lead us, who share our values.
It is here the story broke as well of her flight on the day of her choosing, IIRC, another FR first, another example of how the ferver for Sarah got started and continues to burn here on FR.
This place is truly the cutting edge.
Thank you Sir.
I support Palin as being the foremost individual out there to run in 2012 with full conservative support. I have been continually let down by who the Republican party puts forth on this front time after time.
Hunter also seems like a strong conservative.
Palin/Hunter 2012 ?
My mind is by no means fully made up and I hope to see more and more strong conservative voices emerge but Sarah Palin so far is someone who Americans can trust to be an American first (limited government, traditional values) and a politician second (big federal government, socialist values).
I also believe that Sarah will actually Fight for these principles and not just pay lip service to them. That is probally the biggest reason the libs fear her. They know she will actually Fight for American conservatism.
I don't hate her, I like her, but I'm just not in love with her.
I agree and, personally, hope she is on the ticket.
If it is one of the "others": Romney, Giuliani, Huckster, or Paul the GOP will again lose to the loser Obama.
That said, she needs to gather a bit of "heft" and depth about her over the next few years. Despite the comparisons, she's not nearly as developed or commanding as was Reagan or Thatcher when they got elected.
Also, she is absolutely PHENOMENAL when speaking to crowds, but IMO she needs to stand up better and be more comfortable during 1-1 interviews and TV appearances. She also needs to internalize geo-political issues more than she has thus far.
There are a few years before we have to fully commit on who we're going with - a LONG time politically speaking. By then, if she's the "cream," as cream does, she'll float to the top. We should however, prepare for the possibility of someone else coming along. Though I have no idea of who that would be, sands can shift rather quickly when they want to.
Mark me down as "impressed and hopeful, but not yet fully committed."
She’s certainly someone I will support. People who say she has no experience should read her book. Maybe she has no experience in Washington, but she sure did a lot of good conservative things for Alaska.
Awwww (I said that when I first laid eyes on it). A silly cartoon has touched my heart!!!
Withholding support for her until she fills the final 1% of our dreams is very short sighted. Reagan even signed an amnesty bill. For promises they didnt deliver on to him, yes,, but he did sign it.
No other conservative candidate that has *any* rational chance of winning, is very far from her position. So all withholding support does, is to set up a false choice, which undermines the only candidate that is drawing Beatles crowds wherever she goes.
I hate Obamas positions 98% of the time. She flips that ratio on its head.
Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Is it true I just heard that Ron Paul was a big part in starting the Tea Party movement?
IF she runs, I have seen no one better to support.
I don’t see anyone on the horizon either.
See my tagline...
I will support Sarah Palin, work hard for her, and vote for her if she runs. If she chooses to run, I think she’ll surprise people on the campaign trail.
I was in high school when President Reagan was elected. I distinctly remember the way people made fun of him, calling him an actor, a lightweight. When he got out there and talked to people, though, he was transformed, as were those he touched. Kids my age were electrified, engaged, interested.
Sarah Palin has that... whatever it is - that connection to people. The GOP would be wise not to underestimate her.
AMEN to that Jim!!
Will I vote for governor Palin in general election against Obama? You betcha!
Will I vote for her if she runs as a 3rd party candidate? No way! It will be a wasted vote and I am very frugal.
Will I vote for her during primaries? Not sure. Depends on who else is in the field in GOP and if more electable than Sarah.
Jim, just finished Sarah’s book. After reading about her life in Alaska alone, it was easy to determine that at age 18 she had already had more experience to lead this country than Ohaha! Her young life experience was amazing!!!
They hate her on both sides...Both sides of the elite left and right hate her because she is not one of them...Sarah has a heart for the American people...She’s for real.
Palin 2012 , cuz the wussy men of the GOP need a woman to show em how to Get-R-Done
"This is a man [Barack Obama] who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word victory except when hes talking about his own campaign".
"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed ... when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet?"
"The answer is to make government bigger ... take more of your money ... give you more orders from Washington ... and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world".
"America needs more energy ... our opponent is against producing it. Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit. Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions. Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America ... he's worried that someone won't read them their rights"
" Government is too big ... he wants to grow it. Congress spends too much ... he promises more. Taxes are too high ... he wants to raise them." --
Sarah Palin-Republican National Convention, September, 2008.
I've supported her ever since and see no reason not to.
