Sarah Palin at CPAC: It is her Party
HumanEvents ^ | Sunday February 12, 2012 | Tony Lee

Posted on 02/12/2012 5:47:13 AM PST by Bigtigermike

And on a day when Palin reportedly generated more enthusiasm than every presidential candidate combined who spoke at CPAC and owned the room and conference, one could not wonder how many who were listening to the speech were coming to the realization that Palin should be the GOP nominee for president much in the same way the majority in attendance at Kemper Arena in Kansas City in 1976 at the Republican National Convention, in their hearts, knew that Ronald Reagan -- and not Gerald Ford -- was the rightful standard-bearer of bold conservatism.

It was vintage Sarahcuda all right. A truly beautiful thing.

Pray for a 3rd ballot in Tampa.

The fundamental question at stake in 2012 is what role the Republican Party will have going-forward as “the rightful standard-bearer of bold conservatism”.

It is not a foregone conclusion. There are alternatives, and “yes we can” make them a reality.

I am willing to vote for either Gingrich or Santorum, but I do not think either can beat Obama.

If the convention is smart, they will nominate Sarah. No, I don't expect it, but she's our best hope.

If Alaska nominates their Favorite Daughter at the convention it could get interesting. I believe Sarah deserves to be nominated and it would be fun. I do not think she will ever be the nominee because in 4 years Marco Rubio will be more than ready and for sure in 8 years. But Sarah will never be irrelevant in the process.

What could have been, the sad refrain of so many about so much.

Sarah was exceptional and she is going to be on FOX with chrissy wallace this morning.

She will hand this evil little twit his chapeau.

She made her choice and I respect, but regret, that she made the one she did.

Haven’t seen this speech yet, but Sarah is absolutely magnificent, and has been my top choice for the nomination all along. Few boldly articulate conservatism with the emotion and confidence that she does. She’s an inspiration.

I also like Michelle Bachmann. Odd how these two have more ‘cajones’ than the cumulative total of all the male GOP candidates.

I love Sarah, and everything she believes and says, BUT - please limit the flames now - when she gets energized speaking - which is usually - it seems she gets shrill, and to me at that point she ceases to communicate with authority....

Am I the only one who senses this? Margaret Thatched never did this......

I too would have liked to see her run too.

IMO she looked at the poll numbers that had been set up by the press, who were after her for years and felt that swimming upstream in that current was probably impossible even for her.

I like what Gingrich and Santorum have to say, but I don't think either can defeat Barack Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm). Neither has any executive experience, ie, Governor. In his backing of Snarlin Arlen Specter, he showed he preferred temporary political expediency over principle. Also, as a legislator, he has too much history of saying leftist flagburning neo-fascist Democrats "My good friend", "my personal buddy", or in Bawney Fwanks's case, "My Great Lover".

Newt Gingrich? I completely dislike that scum. Sure he's smart and was a college professor....so was Pol Pot. He has the morals of an alleycat and the political spine of a jellyfish. The only reason he's popular now is that he's ditched what he really thinks of Conservatives, ie, Paul Ryan's plan, and trashes the media, giving boob-bait for the bubbas.

If he somehow makes it to the White House, do you REALLY think he'll pursue a Conservative agenda? He showed how tough he REALLY was in 1995, when Monica Lewinsky's ex-boyfriend completely outmaneuvered him in negotions and then rolled him during the Government Shutdown....after that, Gingrich was Clinton's good little Poodle. The first time a President Gingrich tries anything even remotely Conservative, the Washington Post, NY Times, and the major network media will criticize him......then the next he'll push is something along the lines of repealing Take Home Pay For Private-Sector Workers.

You can tell she tries to work on it.

She sounds like a singer who can’t really hear themselves onstage - and oversings as a result.

I’ve always wondered how much tech support they get at these events. She really needs a good, loud, stage monitor or IEM (in ear monitor) so she can hear herself.

Also - some eq can help a lot. Keep the mic close for proximity effect and boost the lower frequencies in her voice and bring down the 5-8K range, where her voice gets peaky and shrill.

If Sarah is not leaving open a convention nomination for herself, I hope she calls Newt and Rick to a meeting with her, where she tells them to come together on one ticket and rid the party of Willard once and for all.

You are correct and my sentiments about the lady match your own. For some reason she tends to raise her voice to a near shout and hasn't learned to rely on the words themselves or to make people almost strain to hear her as an effective rhetorical device. Her Idaho twang sounds like home to me but it also exaggerates the shrillness.

Lady Thatcher never shouted. She sometimes raised her voice but it came out as forceful but not shrill. She was most effective when her voice calmly cut like cold steel. A career in the British Parliament taught her well.

Ok, I'll make myself very, very unpopular. First, a "brokered convention" ain't gonna happen.

I told everyone eight months ago that Palin wasn't running. She didn't have an organization, didn't have staffers, didn't have state offices---all the things you have to have to win a nomination. People kept insulting me as "not understanding" her brilliant "unconventional" (the word most often used) campaign. So, I was right.

Now she has this incredible opportunity to STOP MITT. Stopping Romney will require ALL conservatives to unite behind either Santorum or Gingrich. Not a "not Romney." Not a "candidate to be named later."

There is a scene in "Hoosiers" where Gene Hackman introduces the guys who actually came out for the basketball team, not Jimmy, the star who hadn't shown up. "This is your team," he says. You either support them or not, but that's the team.

So does Palin endorse or really throw her resources behind anyone actually ON the team? No. She does the safe thing, throwing out another (great) red-meat speech---which like any of you I love---but which doesn't get use closer to actually defeating Obama. Rather, it has the effect of moving us one step closer to a Romney nomination.

This was one of our last opportunities to stop Romney, and it vanished in a rah-rah speech that had everybody standing and, in the end, Romney with the delegates.

What’s with all the doubters that we can defeat Obama?

IF we can beat Romney, and that’s a big IF, then we can beat Obama. It’s the same media machine, same lies and I think most Americans are catching onto it.

But we need to work our butts off to beat Romney first. And we also have to stop tearing our own guys apart. This is like politics 101, we build them up not tear them down.

I'm a huge Palin supporter. But she chose not to run. To me it was like a crack shot of a cowboy witnessing some banditos attacking a farmhouse but who just kept riding by when she could have stopped it.

America is being ransacked and raped by the Obamney gang.

If Mittens succeeds in buying the nomination then Governor Palin needs to run 3rd party. A speech is great, but it is not enough. We don't have the luxury of 4 more years, let alone 8. The time is now. The events of our present history unfolding require boldness.

My man Newt has the vision and the fire in the belly, but his vision is like that of a dog in a pickup driving through squirrel territory, and he does have baggage.

Step up, Sarah!

I, too, don’t care for the shrillness in Sarah’s voice - but that’s the only fault the woman has.

She’s passed relentless anal exams from her vicious opponents on her professional and personal life and they can’t come up with a damned thing to taint her. She is truly blessed and I think - she is the female version of Reagan!

OH, HOW I WISH SHE WAS RUNNING FOR POTUS!!!

I’ve been so disgusted with the last 3 weeks, I’m almost ready for a Tampa bloodbath with a Palin West 2012 result.

Mitt is the phony Mitt is and we all know it. Newt is the most talented and potentially best by far, but with many problems including a campaign that self immolated. Rickie is simply bereft of ability and not nearly as conservative as most have been fooled into thinking and outside the “prude” vote has zero national appeal.

Palin West looking better and better - and no political consultants allowed.

I disagree with you. I think the ‘Tea Party’ was the venue that Sarah considered (way back when) as the source of a grassroots campaign, but, two things happened. That slanderous vile book by Roger Ailes good friend, and Rick Perry. People can flame me if they wish, but, does anyone recall what Sarah's initial reaction was to the Perry announcement?

And given the contempt for Sarah, displayed by the Jon Stewart media and the PROUD GOP establishment, trashing her and her family, I consider it natural she would recognize only she could protect her family. This nation on the left and the high minded political establishment Alinskied her from seeking the nomination.

I would like to know the date when ‘we the people’ stopped being government and the political class became the ‘masters’ over US?

One more thing, when was the last election wherein the majority of the people has a say in who would win the nomination? Personally, I am sick of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and the Jon Stewart media selecting the GOP nominee.

The problem is that Palin has not agreed to be the candidate.

Okay, the real problem is that Perry dropped out, due to the strife that Palin told us to avoid in her speech at CPAC.

The second problem is that Palin has played coy for too long, adding to the strife. This isn’t because Governor Palin is divisive, but because we are a cantankerous and factious bunch who eat our own.

I don’t believe Marco Rubio qualifies under the NBC requirement, nor do many people.

I think that’s why he refuses to answer when asked if he would consider a VP slot. He doesn’t come off as coy when asked, as so many do. He comes off as knowing he can’t qualify. JMO obviously, but I’ve read quite a bit on him and believe we’d have big problems if he were nominated.

“I would love to see Sarah reconsider but if she doesn’t Newt has shown me he is thinking in bright colors not soft pastels.”

In her words, Sarah has repeatedly “endorsed” Newt, and her husband contacting Newt and officially endorsing him was no accident. She has a contract with FNC which I believe precludes her from formally endorsing, but if one listens to her often, it’s clear whom she prefers of these candidates. She likes Newt’s fire, guts and strength.

It seems clear to me that Sarah prefers Newt - probably over Santorum by a bit. And yes, it’s because Newt at his best is certainly the opposite of a pale pastel. He can paint the lines between liberalism and conservatism much more crisply and brightly than anyone else in the field.

“Santorum...he showed he preferred temporary political expediency over principle.”

Huh? His support for Specter was the result of a deal cut to get Specter’s vote for conservatives on the SCOTUS — which is what happened. Specter sucked big time, but adding two good Supremes hardly rates “temporary political expediency” for Santorum. It wasn’t for his own personal gain; it was to help America.

Anyhow, all four candidates are terrible — Romney being the absolute worst. Sickening to think what might have been re Sarah. — sigh — (I’m still hanging on to the shirt I made with “SARAH 2012” on the back; you never know.)

Yes, a vocal coach would solve her problem, and it’s necessary. I’ve heard so many people from ‘08 to now who are majorly turned off by her and though they think she’s “extreme” and “way out there”, it’s really (I believe) only about her vocal delivery. Thatcher realized this about the female voice, so when she was in a heated situation, she purposely lowered her voice and cadence.

It’s a shame the masses are so shallow, but I’m telling you - they are.

Sarah said last night, that her FNC contract does NOT restrict her ability to endorse a political candidate.

She's obviously got other reasons for not overtly endorsing any of the four candidates at this time.

To: Just mythoughts
Here is some admittedly anecdotal info about the Tea Party. Last year at this time I was dealing with at least one, usually two or three Tea Party talks a week. This year, it's not even one a month. One of the leaders of the St. Louis Tea Party told me his group was down to 25%. Now, we have a lot of ideas why, but the bottom line is that as best I can tell, it lost a tremendous amount of force after 2010. I don't know if everyone thought they had "done their jobs" and could rest, or what. But it has very little of the energy it did over a year ago.

In June, I spoke at an event in Dayton that had 100 people (at most). Just a year earlier, we drew 8,000 (!!!) with no publicity at all. So you can see the change.

I don't pretend to know why Palin doesn't endorse someone, but I have suspicions, and they aren't good.

But going back, I said at the time (and still think I'm right) that Palin's bus tour and movie were methods of testing the water. I'm convinced she had a pollster working with her to see if the support was really there, or not. I'm guessing that it was not. Certainly the movie was a commercial bomb. (I know the distributor, who expected a million copies and stopped after the initial print run).
