~ EXCERPT ~
Sarah Palin rides to the sound of the guns. It was a chilly, wet and blustery afternoon in Madison, Wisconsin one more appropriate for a late-season Packers game than a springtime political rally. The stirring NFL Films theme, The Classic Battle, wouldve been a more apt musical choice than Van Halens Right Now to accompany Palin as she entered the stage outside the state capital building to address thousands of Tea Party members, along with a good number of extremely hostile, expletive-hurling government union rowdies.
In the last few months, political professionals and insiders have been writing off the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate, convinced she wont run for the GOP nomination in 2012 or ever. Then again, even those GOPers who are running can hardly compete with the MSMs weird, all-consuming fascination with The Donald.
But all it took was one powerful, pugnacious and presidential speech just 15 minutes long for Palin to again make herself completely relevant to the current political and policy battles raging across America.
She waded forcefully into the states white-hot battle over government union power, giving her full-throated support to Gov. Scott Walker: These are the front lines in the battle of the future for our country. A pension is a promise that must be kept. Scott Walker understands this. He understands that states must be solvent to keep their promises. Hes not trying to hurt union members. Hey folks, hes trying to save your jobs.

She took a little break after visiting with Netanyahu; she has been in prayer and consultation I am sure with her trusted advisors.
No other can fill the void at this point. She is the one to carry the banner.
She didn’t seek it, but the mantle was laid upon her.
Who woulda thunk it.
Maybe they think it’d be a good idea to make nice with POTUS 45?
James Pethokoukis is the only writer I read there. He's great but his best material is at Twitter, where you're limited to 160 characters per post.
She will look good with a 45 nest to her name after we kick TOTUS out on his ass.
She’s a breath of fresh air!
Warms my heart.
So happy to get back to town tonight and see that Sarah was not harmed and that she did well. I prayed all day for her while riding in the car, Wanting to be where I could maybe see a streaming picture. News wise I was in the dead zone. Praise God she is okay.
You are pinged to the videos of her awesome speech. Our Lord hears our prayers. He watches over her, so we must keep praying, non-stop. She is brave and tough, while simultaneously fragile in body, and strong and pure in loving and servant’s heart.
She is running, -— “*Game on!*” she said, and it is our solemn duty to see to her election.
Today would have been my cherished Mom’s 101 birthday and Sarah made it most memorable for me. I am thrilled and blessed.
God love Sarah Palin. I do, we do.
I’m exhausted, so good night, dearest you!
Church in the morning. Sweet dreams, peaceful rest, Prayers and Hugs, always!
Not fragile = small, petite. I’m tired.
Who is “Pissant”? That name sounds very familiar. Was he a FR poster?
Except for Cain, maybe, she is the best stump speaker in the field. In this one she comes out punching from the bell, and lands better, I think, than Trump. The message is-as she says—clear: we are broke, but Obama keeps charging on the credit card. Take it away from him.
Veni, Vidi, Visa:
I came, I saw, I did a little shopping.
Just when I started buying into the hype that she is leaning towards NOT running she comes out with this blistering speech. This almost sounded like a campaign kickoff speech. How can she NOT run? Polls be damned, she needs to run.
Yes indeed, it was good!
—Sounds really good when she says it :)
I believe Trump is a liberal mole inside our party. I think he’s a plant to bring down the Tea Party.
Watch the movie, “Stalig 17,” and you’ll understand just how the Nazis infilitrated the gulags during the war. I have a sick feeling that Trump is a mole inside our Stalig.
Trump is working for Obama. We know in the past who Trumpet gives money to. This is the third party candidate who is acting just like Perot! Don’t be fooled again. We will lose with this loser. He’s playing with the birthers with Obama’s and the lame ass media.
Alan Keyes told us months ago, to watch ourselves this year: We would see every size, color, and flavor of "Judas horse" as he RiNO aristocracy tried to get the Tea Party cattle running in the direction of the RNC corral.
So far, Mitch Daniels, Chuck Crist, and now Donald Trump all answer to a reasonable degree the description of a "Judas horse": a conservative candidate backed by the RiNO Commentariat and Old Money Plutocracy, to split Tea Party support for genuine Tea Party patriots like e.g. Michele Bachmann, to diffuse and nullify Tea Party influence and pave the way for the Ultimate RNC Preferred Uber-RiNO, "Willard" Romney.
[Note: They've only been pulling this crap on Main Street Republicans since the 1880's .... Theodore White described their command-and-control in The Making of the President books, esp. the 1960 and 1964 campaigns, that saw the early conservative challenges to the Plutocracy, aka the Rockefeller Wing.]
Veni, Vidi, Velcro:
I came, I saw, I stuck around...
“Sarah Palin rides to the sound of the guns. “
I can’t wait to cast my vote for her!
Sarah Palin 2012 ~ "Going Oval"
“I believe Trump is a liberal mole inside our party. I think hes a plant to bring down the Tea Party.”
I think you’re right. May God foil that plot.
Who is Pissant? I see has name mentioned a lot on this site. He doesn’t like Palin?
"Was" is the operative word. He was one of the main leaders of the anti-Palin faction on FR. He was zotted by Admin Moderator with extreme prejudice for a particularly nasty post graphically suggesting that Palin was homosexually involved with Tammy Bruce. I rejoiced the day he was zotted.
See my post #30.
yeah I thought so. He or she hit abuse on me for no reason at all because I stuck up for Sarah Palin. I noticed a lot dropping off at that time. I never call anybody names here and I thought it was odd I got kicked out for being too conservative.
Mashing of gums?
Sarah did the same thing up here in Alaska - she ran against both the Democrats and the Republican establishment. Her legislative allies were cobbled together from both parties. And before she got picked for vice president, she was wildly popular here, which is something that rarely happens, as political complaining is sport in Alaska due to the absence of a football season.
I’ve actually met her. She’s a force to be reckoned with. Everyone who went to the rally in Madison - including the union thugs - no doubt walked away impressed by the woman’s abilities. Those people will talk to others. It is a slow but steady way to build support. Eventually the jokes on Leno and Jon Stewart will just sound dumb. Wait and see.
Mr. Trump may be a mole, as you say. I respect your opinion. It just seems to me that his mega ego would prevent him from carrying anyone’s water other than his own.
I think that he has broken down the “any criticism of Obama is racism” wall, and for that I am grateful to him.
I suspect that might depend on what the payoff was...
Finally watching her speech. Applauding alone at the computer!! Win The Future! She cracks me up. She was ON FIRE, even in the snow.
“Game on! “
Hooray a new slogan you can beat to death.
pissant, where ote tho?
Hey Freepers, do you know where your trolls are tonight?
“It just seems to me that his mega ego would prevent him from carrying anyones water other than his own.”
But he admits he has all kinds of I-owe-you entanglements with many agencies and interests, half of them Democrats.
I’m looking forward to purchasing a President Palin Commemorative Colt .45. :)
