Skip to comments.Sarah Palin at the GOP Convention (Vanity)
Posted on 07/14/2012 9:00:26 PM PDT by One Name
OK; we've waltzed thru this crap long enough. Do you value the Conservative vote?
Let Sarah speak prime time at the GOP convention; she'll deliver the northern rust belt and other border working class states...
GOP- reject this message at your own peril.
We need Gov Palin out there more than ever with Romney as the nominee.
Repealing John Boehner should be a required campaign promise by any conservative running for Congress in 2012
Watch the gope do precisely that.
She’s not running. Got it. She can still fight and deliver- can you?
Do yo honestly beleive the woman they despise will be given any recognition at the GOP convention?
I will be surprised if they let her in the building.
They are idiots to not welcome Palin. But they may choose to be idiots.
Fight ??? What happened to :
They’d much prefer to win without us.
Can’t happen; and we are holding their feet to the fire.
In regret that I have only one life to give for God and Country.
Stop whining man.
Having belonged to many conservative groups over the decades, here is the scenario of the GOP, at elections time......please help us we can’t win without you.......after the election eat s#it and die.
And yet election after election conservatives say “maybe this time it will be different” - NO more, not ever again.
I will not capitulate any longer to the establishment GOP.
No liberal will ever get the go ahead from this conservative again......I am done.
Note the quote: Palin: "the problem is I do have that Fire in my belly..."
Why is that a "problem"?
Because "the Republican machine" doesn't exist to support that fire - but suppress it.
And while they "fooled her once," she's not letting them fool her again.
Well, I’ve watched every GOP convention on television since 1976, and that record is coming to end, as I’m planning to take a pass on this one. Too dreary and depressing to contemplate. BUT, if Palin is present and slated for a speech, yes, I’d definately tune in to watch that! No question.
Men would do so.
Don’t have enough insight into the GOP to know if men are still there.
She carried their water while they were cowering...
She brings Middle Working Class America- may not mean much in the red states; but this election is about the swing states.
She brings the Tea Party.
And in your imaginary fantasy world she jumped in the race and filed as a candidate in the states like the others did and she was rejected??
She is darn good at smoking out the most gullible ever born. So Game on:
Do you want SP for you or against you?
Matters not to me...
I do not think most GOP politicians dislike Sarah Palin.
Problem is they are afraid of associating with her since the MSM has succeeded in doing a number on her. Most GOP voters do not log into Free Republic or other conservative sites to learn details of the governor’s qualities or agenda.
Anyone recall her interviews with perky Katie and Charlie Gibson? She could not describe the Bush Doctrine with him, and had some trouble naming her favorite reading material with Katie. IMO those questions were irrelevant to be an effective VP, it was done just to trip her up.
Then there was relentless caricatures of Sarah by Tina Fey on SNL. So the impression was created that she was an air-head and a loose cannon. Some of my own staunch republican friends thought so, but when I asked them to name some issues they dis-agreed with her, they could NOT name one!
Result is GOP political neophytes never learned of how well Sarah performed as governor and mayor. I think she is much more seasoned politician on a national political level now in 2012 than she was in 2008. The McCain campaign completely mis-handled her candidacy in 2008.
Romney would do well to pick her on the ticket in 2012.
Who???? LOL, you mean that hot babe on FNC ??? LOL
Check out her speech at CPAC this spring.
She kicks ass.
Don’t hold the GOP’s feet to the fire. They are too stupid to feel it. Try holding their balls to the fire by withholding contributions (as I am doing), and send back every contribution request with some decent suggestions on how they need to change. (I assume somebody there can read, but I could be wrong).
Boehner is a “Limp Bizkit”, if you know what I mean. McConnell ain’t no Charlie Daniels, if you know what I mean.
The GOP needs a real purge at the top, NOW!
Sarah said in February that the Establisment would never come to her and that she knew that for a fact. Why do you think that the Eliltes still attack her even up to this day with potshots? Why does Romney have people on his staff that were sabotaging Sarah in 2008 pushing the media to investigate troopergate and diss her days before the election? They don’t want her on the stage, they want to bury her politically for good though they will never say that publicly but anonymously for fear of the pull that she had across America among conservatives
We’re workin it; go your own way....
She seems to be a very practical and pragmatic person and her record and history back that up.
I'm inclined to believe she was serious about running, but something even more serious backed her down. It must have been, considering what all she and her family have already been through.
Perhaps one day we'll find out, but I'm over my disappointment.
Especially so, since she is still in the fight and is working to elect some good TEA party candidates as well as working to defeat obama.
Ha ha. They only care about your opinion if there are $$$ stapled to it.
They want to win at all costs.
If they want the Tea Party to come along; then Sarah needs to have a Prime Time address.
They need us to win the rust belt swing states.
Could be. What are you doing?
Digging a hole?
Same problem as last year when all those suckers really believed she was running due to : New Hampshire bus tour, Greta (’Raging fire in my belly’) FNC claim, Iowa Passion tour/video and WI ‘Game on Mr President’.
The key clue (DUHHH) that she was NEVER intending to run was the continuous contract $$$$ she had at FNC as a political commentator, as she had to tell FNC that she had no intention of running early Spring 2011 to keep that job.
But she smoked out the most gullible for sure anyway who are not capable of seeing reality a few inches from their faces.
You Don’t understand! Sarah is a critic of both parties, especially the Establishment, she was warning people to stay away from the Establishment machine at the RightOnline convention. The Bushes and Romney control Tampa and I doubt they will allow her to speak
She’s not running.
Do you think she can help the cause?
Has she fought harder than you? Then STFU.
Palin NEVER said she would run. She always said she would do what was best for her, her family, and at the direction of God. If some thought they could bully her into a different position that is hardly her fault. You are so far out of line it isn’t even funny.
F a bunch of bushes and whatnot.
Do they want to win? they ignore us at their peril..
Either way, works for me.
I know how the story ends.
You are a jerk. Palin has endorsed and raised money for those conservatives she believes in....what have you done nationally? Yeah that’s what I thought
Why don't you want her to run? You don't think she's qualified? LOL
RE :”Do you think she can help the cause”
I remember the Sarah PAC letter last September saying a donation shows your support for her running. It was posted here too. Then she claimed on Greta she doesn't know what is written in those SarahPAC letters and there were still some Palinistas that just STILL didn't GET IT.
MAN some people are gullible!
Let? Beg her to speak or at least invite her politely and respectfully to give an important speech to the convention.
Glad you mentioned that. She saved RINO McCain in his AZ Senate 2010 primary so he could endorse and rally for liberal Romney last year , Great job with those ‘conservative’ candidates.
We don't need any more Sharon Angle's fruit-loops to get the Reid's re-elected either.
I clicked to donate but it doesn’t go anywhere. Can you post the link?
Yep, your donation might be the one that convinces her to finally ‘run’. Then America will be saved.
I hope Sarah Palin gets a long time standing ovation and Romney gets the cricket serenade.
Or here one that will get “somebody” ticked off, Romney admits he will step down from the nomination should Sarah Palin decline his offer.
Palin accepts the offer, the pair goes on to win and Romney steps down anyway.
and we really don’t need you either. Libertarians are a joke and inconsistent so go support Ron Paul
And did you bother to read the bottom of the page....NOT SUPPORTED BY ANY CANDIDATE OR CANDIDATE COMMITTEE..... go away you may have been around awhile but you really are just a troll
Hey Newbee, I noticed you didn’t join here until AFTER your hero finally admitted she wasnt running last October. That is very convenient.
Were you in coma the two years before?.
Well hot shot not all of us could afford a computer or internet service because we were busy working and taking care of our families.
And am officially done ‘conversing’ with a troll libertarian
I see your problem, you awoke from coma late October 2011 and with no memory of the past joined FR then and so you came across this babe the Grizzly ma-ma and it was love at first sight.
Well UNLIKE you my memory goes back a bit further than last late October.
There was a bar in Wasilla, its now a Salvation Army, I met Sarah and Todd there and shared a beer with them, before she became mayor of Wasilla.
Can anyone name who the owner was of that bar, or its name?
You are an idiot. Because I was supporting my family and making sure that they are taken care of does NOT mean I was asleep. you are an arrogant ass. Your libertarian view points are very clear. You live in Maryland??? Certainly home of lots of public sector blood suckers. Hope you are enjoying it.
You can be on your high horse all you want. You didn’t originate FR. You too are considered a noob by those who have been here longer. My guess is I am older than you and have worked more campaigns than you. I worked FOR Goldwater. I did NOT vote for Nixon or Ford I did vote FOR Reagan. I did NOT for either Bush or McCain. I have been true to my principles and been disappointed many times. So what? Just because I didn’t come to FR until recently does not make you better or smarter or anything. Your opinion is no more valid than anyone else’s. And judging from what you have posted....I would say it is not as volaid as some of the others I have read.
Go pick a fight somewhere else or with someone else. Done
YOU pinged me to start a fight here newbee whiner. Don't pick fights if you are going to be a baby.
