Skip to comments.Let Sarah Speak: The 20 Best Quotes from Sarah Palin
Posted on 08/21/2012 5:31:54 AM PDT by Kaslin
Sarah Palin was the GOP vice-presidential candidate in 2008. She's also the most prominent woman in the party, she may have been the MVP of the GOP's incredible 2010 election cycle, and she's one of the best speakers that Republicans have to offer. That's why it's such a shame that she's not being given an opportunity to speak at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. If you think that Mitt Romney and the RNC should "Let Sarah Speak," you can sign a petition, contact the Republican National Convention, or just speak out on her behalf. If enough conservatives say, "Let Sarah Speak," she will get the speaking slot she deserves and any woman who can deliver quotes like these can help put Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the White House.
20) Stand up, GOP, and fight. Maybe I should ask some of the Badger womens hockey team, those champions, maybe I should ask them if we should be suggesting to GOP leaders that they need to learn to fight like a girl.
19) (Barack Obama) is not a man who sees America like you and I see America. Our opponent is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that hes palling around with terrorists who would target their own country. Americans need to know this.
18) Don't retreat! Reload!
17) But heres a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: Im not going to Washington to seek their good opinion Im going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
16) Assange is not a journalist any more than the editor of al-Qaeda's new English-language magazine Inspire is a journalist. He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands.
15) There were times (during my early campaigns) when I thought, You know what I could really use? A wife.
14) Only dead fish go with the flow.
13) (Barack Obama) can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when hes talking about his own campaign.
12) I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we dont quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people arent listening.
11) Buck up or stay in the truck.
10) (Occupy Wall Street says) Wall Street fat cats got a bailout so now I want one too. And the correct answer is no one is entitled to a bailout...Barack Obama is owned by Wall Street. The fat cats, as he calls them, they're his friends. They're his pals. That's where he gets his campaign donations. And he's very generous about giving these cats their cat nip bigger returns on their investments in bailouts.
9) Divorce Todd? Have you seen Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but Im not blind!
8) I suppose I could play (Politico's) immature, unprofessional, waste-of-time game, too, by claiming these reporters and politicos are homophobe, child molesting, tax evading, anti-dentite, puppy-kicking, chain smoking porn producers really, they are Ive seen it myself but Ill only give you the information off-the-record, on deep, deep background; attribute these facts to an anonymous source and Ill give you more.
7) Folks, this government isn't too big to fail, it's too big to succeed.
6) If we were real domestic terrorists, shoot, President Obama would be wanting to pal around with us, wouldn't he?
5) To paraphrase Hemingway, people go broke slowly and then all at once. Weve been slowly going broke for years, but now its happening all at once as the worlds capital markets are demanding action from us, yet Obama assumes well just go borrow another cup of sugar from some increasingly impatient neighbor. We cannot knock on anyones door anymore. And we dont have any time to wait for Washington to start behaving responsibly. Well be Greece before these D.C. politicians false promises are over. We must force government to live within its means, just as every business and household does.
4) The response to my op-ed by global warming alarmists has been interesting. Former Vice President Al Gore has called me a denier and informs us that climate change is a principle in physics. Its like gravity. It exists. Perhaps hes right. Climate change is like gravity - a naturally occurring phenomenon that existed long before, and will exist long after, any governmental attempts to affect it.
3) I need NOW's defense like a fish needs a bicycle. I don't want them to defend me.
2) The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obamas death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.
1) They say the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick.
The GOP are terrified of the explosive emotion, applause and riotous cheering that would certainly begin once Palin steps on to the podium. She can do that in her sleep.
Personally, I think that kind of emotional affirmation is exactly what is needed. I wish like anything that Mitt and Ryan were capable of generating THAT kind of seismic response from Conservative America.
On Fox and Friends this past weekend it was announced that Janine Turner will speak at the convention. I like Janine but to snub Palin like that for a political novice is outrageous.
I believe that Sarah is the best hope for our Nation. The convention “snub” may not be a bad thing. Only the Republicans would be watching her with objective eyes and minds. Nothing is lost.
Lately I believe that her absence at the convention will be a good thing. I no longer see Sarah Palin as a republican force, but as a tea party force. If the tea party stays a separate group and keeps operating outside of the GOP it will tend to be cleaner force for limited government.
What do you think?
The Tea Party, so far, has not sullied itself with the well known corruption and double dealing of the GOP.
That’s as it should be.
I think that whatever happens in the coming Presidential election, it will further (perhaps finally) define the status of the Tea Party and its leadership.
Palin cannot be unaware of this likelihood and is somewhat restraining her activities and comments in view of this possibility.
It’s all guesswork of course, but the stakes are high and Palin almost CANNOT lose.
It will be interesting to see those who held back, try to jump on the train while it gains steam.
You may be right. I really agree with Sarah’s outlook on life and government. Alaska, when I grew up, was a step child of America. We learned to stand on our own tow feet and do what was necessary for ourselves and our towns and villages. Independence is necessary to suceed in survival. That is the reason America was stronger before 2006, when the democrats took over the government and 2009 when obama was sworn to be our president. We need those on welfare to learn to stand and make a living for themselves rather than live on handouts from others. Even the most menial job is a step up from handouts and gives a person a feeling of independence.
“The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obamas death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”
Sarah's presence at the convention is - to me - a virtual certainty.
We shall see.
Todd ROCKS on Stars Earn Stripes - respected by all Mon NBC
I think Sarah's supporters attending the convention will gather together - during TV time - to chant something like: "We want Sarah" or "Let Sarah speak"
The GOP strikes again. Instead of having people who know how to communicate with people, who can motivate the crowd (Palin, Levin, Nugent, Limbaugh, etc.), they’re going to treat us to folks like John McCain.
You nailed it, Loud Mime. Democrat, Republican, both are big government chiselers, who can tell the difference? Go Tea Party! Go Sarah! Her time will come.
The problem is not Sarah, it’s the fact that we have a nation full of numbskulls who believe that she’s a character on Saturday Night Live. I’m sure the GOP did not want to put her on and fire up the late night comedy parody machine again.
‘politicians using my kid as an ATM’.
Anyone have the actual quote? I loved that turn of a phrase. Classic Palin.
Also the quote where she spoke of crony capitalism and how so many politicians come to Washington of modest means and (somehow) end up millionaires (I'm looking at you Harry Reid).
I've been a Palinista ever since. Ain't nobody gonna stop me now.
No offense intended, but better would be
... defending "stupid" quotes ...
Sarah Palin should have been invited to speak at the convention, period.
I also believe that Newt should have been involved. Heck, I would like each of our conservative candidates participating in this political gameshow.
