DeMint: Give Palin Major Speaking Role at Convention
NewsMax ^ | July 20, 2012 | By NewsMax Wires

Posted on 07/21/2012 3:57:00 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Powerful conservative Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., thinks former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin deserves a prime speaking position at the Republican convention.

"I'd love to see Sarah Palin have a big slot — as far as speaking — because there's no one still in America that excites the base of conservatives and even libertarians as she does,” he told Fox News Thursday.

“She can draw a crowd more than any other Republican, and I think has more influence in primaries than any other endorsement right now, so I think she'd be good."

The GOP doesn’t have the balls to allow this conservative woman to speak.

Good afternoon Guy. I hope you are well.

And that's a good thing.

I think it would be cool if Gov. Palin pulled a Kanye West, you know when Kanye took the award statue from Taylor Swift at the Grammy’s. When Mitt gets the nomination, just as he is about to speak, she should come up from behind, take the microphone and give the convention floor a piece of her mind.........

Honestly I would want her to turn them down till they show that they intend to take a true conservative turn.

D@mned right she should speak, but mitt will fight it tooth and nail because if Sarah takes the stage the delegates stampede to give her the nomination. Let’s pray that it happens.

Indeed they don’t have the balls. They just want us to line up and do their bidding. It is astounding to me that there is even a debate or conversation about her speaking at all. Sarah Palin not speak at the GOP Convention? Unbelievable. What a slap in the face.

Romney is a real screw up. If Palin does not get to speak he will lose lots of the Tea Party that might be sitting on the fence.

Sarah Palin to Mitt Romney: ‘Light our hair on fire’

http://www.tscolumn.com/news/sarah-palin-to-mitt-romney-light-our-hair-on-fire/

“”Romney, he has said before that he doesn’t want to have to light his hair on fire. Well, there are a lot of his base supporters, independents who are saying, ‘Well, light our hair on fire, then! Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in this presidential election because it is the election of our lifetime,” Ms. Palin posited to Sean Hannity of Fox News.”

What would be the point of her speaking?

Would it make Romney acceptable? Because that’s what
the speakers there do. Support the nominee. It’s a program.

Why would she wish to ally herself with the system that
gave us Romney? Because that alliance is a condition of
speaking. She hasn’t declared such alliance. No Speakee.

The convention is and will be a Romneyfest.

You can’t really expect them to book any opposition.

Here's what she should say:

"How many voters wished they had voted for McCain and ME, instead of Obama in 2008?.. DON'T MAKE THAT SAME MISTAKE AGAIN, AMERICA.. America cannot survive four more years of Obama. VOTE FOR ROMNEY AND ME IN 2012.. ROMNEY/PALIN, ROMNEY/PALIN, ROMNEY/PALIN!!!" (Crowd chants with applause and look of shock on Romney's face then begins to chant).

I would think that if Sarah Palin were to be a featured speaker she would receive a standing ovation throughout her comments. More so than Mittens.

Go Sarah Go!!!

It is so sad that we have Romney as our candidate.

To be honest, I'd rather have a root canal.

That Ms. Palin draws and excites crowds is all well and good, but will that translate into votes for Mitt in November?

Only if she’s on the ticket. Fat chance since at this point Sarah’s not inclined to play second fiddle to anyone, much less a socialist.

I've said it before. It's worth repeating.

Let Gov. Palin give the speech nominating Gov. Romney.

She could stress his plan for our increased domestic energy production.

She'd WOW 'em. She'd coalesce his Conservative support. She'd bring in Tea Party folks as well as Energy producers and users.

And she'd improve her credentials to become Secretary of Energy, Interior, EPA.

Her purpose were she to speak would be to enhance the chances of a Republican presidential victory. Could she do that and upstage Romney at the same time? She wouldn’t do that?
