Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Deserves To Deliver Game Changer Speech At GOP Convention
Posted on 07/18/2012 12:07:37 PM PDT by Kfobbs
Winning the presidency has a lot more to do with the charisma of the leader than it does with the policies that are brought to the American dinner table. Just look at the last sorrowful example the country was saddled with in 2008 with the current president. There is reportedly, current intrigue moving about in the backrooms of GOP political leadership within Romneys campaign concerning Sarah Palin. It is suggested that Romney is sitting pat on the idea of not issuing Sarah Palin VIP credentials to the August RNC Convention in Tampa, let alone giving her any real speaking role.
The pundits and Palin detractors having been speaking recently about how toxic the idea would be to let a energized Sarah Palin speech loose upon the conventioneers and of course, into millions of American homes across the nation. There are even those within the Republican establishment who want to hang everything that went so badly south in the John McCain 2008 presidential run at the feet of Sarah Palin. Of course the accusation is absolutely unfounded.
Whatever went badly for Senator McCain had more to do with his own inability to project leadership, than it had to do with smarmy characterizations of Sarah Palin by comedienne Tina Fey portrayal of Palin in Saturday Night Live sketches. Or gotcha sophomoric media antics of then CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric.
What has happened since then is a course correction in the grassroots embodied in the emergence of the Tea Party. Its power and strength was given birth out of the out of the presidents failure to lead, except through growing taxation, and failing trillion dollar bailout deficit policies.
Millions of grassroots people became patriots with a principled purpose, in small towns, farming communities, suburbs and cities. They refused to be ...

Actually she deserves to deliver the acceptance speech, but the GOP-e took care of that.
Good article with concise points for the Romney campaign to answer.
Many at the republican convention are socialists.. although technically they are fascists... Fascism and socialism are sisters.. They do the same thing only differently..
The problem is democracy, which is the political disease, that has socialism as a symptom.. Most republicans love democracy as a holy word.. ignoring that democracy is Mob Rule by mobsters..
NO democracy has ever yet been democratic.. none..
Democracy was and is a lie.. thats why the US used to be a republic..
It will take RADICAL change to re-arrange the United States as a republic..
Conservative change will NOT do it..
Conservatives are blowing up an empty pipe.. there is nothing there..
YOU must be a radical to reverse America from its fate..

Democracy is indispensable to socialism.
The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin

Have Sarah Palin make the Romney nominating speech.
Which would be painfully obvious if she were to appear because she would suck all the oxygen out of the room. They want to avoid the comparison ... Sarah vs. Mitt .... true excitement/passion vs. 'not Obama' .... conservative vs. Obama-lite ..... etc.
Lookie who will be the Key Note speaker.
We can’t have anybody showing up the nominee, doncha know. All speakers must be even duller than the Mittster.
Which is precisely why she won’t be allowed to speak.
Love your screen name, welcome to FR!
During the primary Romney was the very bottom of my choices.
Have never much cared for him
Find it really difficult to consider voting for him.
Most conservatives are going to have difficulty voting for him.
Many, many Americans are done with the nonsense of voting for the lesser of two evils, which, is still voting for evil.
If he snubs Sarah Palin at the convention,he can kiss the conservative vote goodbye and there for any remote chance of winning the election.
GOP continues to be the party of stupid. How can we get rid of these morons in the leadership? Seems like the obvious answer is to first not vote for Romney.
“When something goes radically in one direction, the only way to change it is go radically in the other direction. Taking it to the middle just won’t do it.” Paraphrasing Tony Robbins.
The GOPE are trying to relegate Palin to ancient history as fast as possible, as well as assigning all conservative contenders to the cheap seats. They are deemed a threat.
Conservatives are OUT.
Good work, hp.
Now that would work for me much more than her making the keynote speech...and it would solidify the base
>> “Conservatives are OUT.
Bank it.” <<
The GOPE is working on being OUT! - Bank it.
Far as I know, Saint Sarah took care of that herself when she decided not to run.
Working on it? They are OUT already with the conservative base of the conservative base, if you get my drift. Just call us the base’s, base. :)
I have to answer for my actions. I will NOT vote for another Baal worshiper! PERIOD!
Winning the presidency????
Is she endorsing Romney?
>> “Seems like the obvious answer is to first not vote for Romney” <<
Really, that is not the answer.
If we take the senate, we need a GOP president in the white house to sign the bills.
The answer is to contribute to the defeat of the GOPE leadership in the primaries, even if they are not in your state. We have to get the dead wood out of leadership to ever have any choice in the presidency.
Romney will be appointing judges that are served up to him by the senators, not picking them himself. Common sense has to prevail at some point.
Hell, why dont they just demand that the GOP give her ALL the delegates and coronate her nominee without her even running? then whine when it doesnt happen?
How about Queen? Queen of fools?
And she takes of not being asked to speak by not endorsing/supporting the nominee. It's her choice, she has a plenty big media megaphone, she's not a victim here.
I loooooove Sarah, but I’m not so sure this is a good idea. Strategery man, that’s all this is about...
Has ANYONE ever given a keynote speech at a presidential convention without endorsing the candidate?
Every keynote speech at a national convention that I have ever heard has a line like this, “So join me in helping to elect __________ to be President of the United States!!!!!!”
What does she say, “Now go find someone to cast your vote for who is not Barack Obama!!!”
Yeah, it’s really kinda obvious isn’t it?
Not sure why there’s such a proclivity to provoke teapot tempests in the media lately.
If Sarah Palin wanted to speak at the GOP convention so badly, she should have run and won !
But alas, one of her children didn’t want her to. Screw America that really, really needed her.
I'm a big fan of Sarah Palin but I'm not buying that.
She chose not to run for the nomination, therefore she does NOT deserve for it to be handed to her. Had she run, I believe she would have easily steamrollered to the nomination. Bachman, Cain, Santorum, Gingrich, etc., never would have gotten out of the gate. She would have won Iowa and perhaps even New Hampshire, which would have ended Romney's chances right there. Even if Romney won in New Hampshire, Sarah would have cleaned up on Super Tuesday.
Instead, Sarah decided not to run and the remaining conservatives elected death by circular firing squad - resulting in the nominee we have today. It's not a GOP-e conspiracy. It's us failing to rally around a conservative that could beat Romney. I was here during primary season. I saw the vitriol we had for fellow conservatives who did not support our own "favorite" candidate of the moment. While we were ganging up on Bachmann supporters, then Perry supporters, then Cain supporters, etc., etc., Mitt Romney was in the background biding his time. (Just like he is doing now with respect to Obama.)
I would love to still see Sarah speak at the convention but it's not her show anymore. If she fails to endorse Romney, one cannot blame Romney for not inviting her to speak. For if Sarah is not endorsing Romney, any convention speech from her has potential to do him harm.
Romney might not be our best case scenario but he's not stupid.
The day after Romney is elected, is the day I start to hammer him and the RINO GOPe. Sarah will rise again.
Additionally, I have never seen her say a single syllable about even wanting to run. She played it quite coy by maintaining a presence but never expressed a desire to re enter the political fray. She is ever ready to deliver a strong conservative message that many want to hear but so does our own Jim Robinson and many others here. None have a desire to run either.
It is my thought that she has been offered a non prime time speaking slot and perhaps refused it wanting a more prominent time. So far, that has not happened.
Although it pains me to say it....... Sarah was
Ron Paul has already done that in Minnesota, Maine, Colorado and Louisiana without winning a single primary.
It seems to me that the people who should be given the spotlight are the GOP up-and-comers who have called up the GOP and said, “Let me know what I need to do to help” and have committed to working their butt off until November.
Did she run? I don’t recall seeing her name on ballot here in MA. Maybe she quit before then.
You mean Judges like Roberts that just gutted the Constitution with his invented new non-behavior tax? No thanks.
She may well deserve a speaking role, but I don’t see why she’d want it. There is a pretty fair chance that willard will lose. So why be associated with a loser? Worse yet, a loser who doesn’t reflect your views,
Team Romney and the GOPe took Sarah out very early in the election cycle. It is all nicely documented. Sarah scares the crap out of the GOPe so no way was Sarah going to be allowed to run for the GOP nomination. I am pretty sure Sarah calls herself a conservative not a Republican. I doubt the lack of an invite upsets her much.
“Sarah Palin Deserves To Deliver Game Changer Speech At GOP Convention”
She’s a Conservative. How is speaking at the gop Convention even relevant to a Conservative?
You don’t read well.
The senators are always going to pick the judges, and who will depend on what senator has seniority in the district.
>> “ I am pretty sure Sarah calls herself a conservative not a Republican.” <<
You couldn’t be more wrong. Sarah Palin is a loyal Republican.
"The Justices are nominated by the President of the United States and appointed after confirmation by the United States Senate.
You know absolutely nothing of the political processes in this country!
The senior senator in the judicial district of the retiring judge has always picked the replacement, and the President accepts that nominee and formally nominates that judge. Then the senate holds confirmation hearings.
That is the way it has always been done.
My Gawd, if that's not the truth. Buncha girly men if I've ever seen some. Stupid, rotten, fascist, smug, elitist girly men. Shooting themselves in the ... okay... FOOT... anytime they get the chance.
I doubt the lack of an invite upsets her much.
Also true, and yet another reason conservatives respect her.
Interesting so tell me what senior senator wanted Harriet Miers to sit on the Supreme Court?
No, she refused to bow to baal, so no invite.
I’m happy about that - she’s not tainted by the Romney filth! Good has nothing to do w/evil.
Not to worry, your saint Romney would never think of lying or stabbing you in the back - so don’t stay up nights worrying about your saint romney. Just bow to him, that’s all he requires.
He decide to run and came through fire to get your vote and will return to fire with it. Sweet dreams!
You really think that? She is LOYAL to God and NOT to a party. So you couldn't be more wrong. She has her priorities straight - unlike the masses!
