Thanks for the pic, Kristinn! Tell Sarah we LOVE her because she loves America as WE THE PEOPLE do!!
Great speech, she had lost weight.
And if you listen, she’s telling us to listen to Sarah.
Those tactics only worked against her because so many conservatives went along with it. If it had only been the libs it wouldn’t have mattered, they were never going to vote for her in the first place.
Sorry, I should have made clear the photo was by W04Man.
Thanks so much for the wonderful photo of Sarah Palin, W04Man!!!
AMEN to that! Call me crazy, but I'd follow her into the depths of hell (or what the Kenyan is working hard to turn America into).
She still sounds shrill. I just don’t like the quirky stuff.
Sarah has made millions with her celebrity status, so she is the last one to criticize the consultants. And if we don't want to have identity politics, we should be advocating the elimination of affirmative action and minority business set asides that just reinforce group indenitifcation.
Their methods are the stuff of genius.
They mock and deride your common sense. They get us to a point when our innate sense of thriving, indeed even surviving, stop functioning. They make us allow ourselves to override our sense of right and wrong and stand mute.
This method requires no weapons, it effectively allows the masses to kill themselves by not fighting back.
Republicans are especially susceptible to this.
Hi..... I just woke up.... not really awake yet, so I missed it.
Any idea where I might find a replay??
CSPAN Sarah Palin CPAC Remarks 3013 (video)
Mitt probably lost 2-3 points by not having Sarah speak at the Convention! What an idiot!!!
I hope someone posts it soon. I had to miss it also, but really wanted to see it.
Get over it!!!! You and some others from FR past just like to use every little meaningless critique of Sarah like not lilting her voice! We have a country to save and Sarah is one of those championing what’s good and all you guys do is show up talking about voice tones
Get over it yourself! You can check - I’ve never posted on Palin threads other than posting pretty graphics of her way early on. That can be proved. You - who are in thrall - just never like to hear anyone speak some truth.
If you thought that speech sounded shrill, you just must not like the delivery of the female voice in general, because there wasn’t any shrillness there.
Are there any female conservative politicians whose speaking style you like?
No one's perfect. Some of us have shrill voices, others have quirky mannerisms and traits. What's shrill and quirky to one, may be an admiral characteristic to another. She speaks from her heart with love for country.
Sarah says the background checks should have started with Obama!
I hear ya on illegal immigration. It is my one point of disagreement that I’m aware of with Palin—and the one point by which she doesn’t hold the country’s majority position.
I’m no fan of affirmative action or set-asides either.
So far Ted Cruz is sounding better on the issues, but he’s coming with zero political record and the question as to being a natural born citizen.
Who do you think we have who’s better?
Thank you, SO MUCH.
Oh, and the issue with the political consultants is syphoning off hundreds of millions of political donations for their own enrichment and at the cost of being politically ineffective.
Palin hasn’t done that at all. She’s done the conservatively right thing and made enough money to support her disabled child through adulthood, among other things.
Her voice has been spoken of many times.
I am a woman, so am familiar with women’s voices, and a lower voice sounds better.
[No one’s perfect. Some of us have shrill voices, others have quirky mannerisms and traits.]
If she ever runs, she will have my vote.... she has always had it.
T.W. Shannon, Speaker, OK House is offering a powerful speech for Capitalism and free markets. He’s not mentioned “need for diversity”, but says standing on true conservative principles is what will bring EVERYONE to our party and what makes this nation great. He said the best answer to poverty is not government, but a good paying job. He sounds like a great conservative with a bright future in the party.
She really hasn’t said anything on immigration lately. She was fairly supportive back when she was on the ticket with McCain but that was to be expected. The only other time I really heard her mention the issue was in an interview a few years ago with O’Reilly where he kept badgering her about it and she gave a fairly lukewarm reply that just said basically that she didn’t want to deport everyone and and that some deal could probably be worked out.
But it’s never been a major issue for her and she’s never really been out in front pushing it like say McCain, Rubio, Jeb Bush, etc... have.
She was a very strong supoprter of Gov Brewer’s when the AZ law was a big issue.
I’d wait until she says something more recent and detailed on the issue before coming to any firm conclusions.
Great. I'll disregard your criticism of Sarah's voice, then ;) Do you agree this country is in dire straits and in need of a conservative turn around?
On a side note, I've long admired your tech/graphic skills. Your work adds much to this forum. Blessings to you, Potlatch!
Well I prefer to read speeches. So I'll wait for that.
I’ve been an early and consistent supporter of Palin. I’ve also consistently said it would do her a lot of good to take some voice lessons. Adding polish to her substance wouldn’t hurt in the slightest, and would help her with a lot of what are now called low information voters. I’ve read that Maggie Thatcher got voice lessons early on in her career for the same thing, and gained immensely from them.
Palin actually went down to stand alongside (literally) with Brewer during the AZ law furor. The media was spitting hellfire over Brewer and the law, and the virtually all of the GOP leaders were hiding in the tall grass, or giving weaselly, embarrassing answers. I distinctively recall Rubio as giving an example of the latter.
Another reason I value Palin so highly. Just like when she went to Wisconsin during the Walker recall-petition, giving a speech amidst all those unhinged protesters. Another case when all the usual “GOP stalwarts” were in hiding.
Perhaps it's because of age, perhaps voice training, or some other factor, but the shriek/screech has been greatly modulated. Still a little there, but greatly easier to listen to.
Regardless of the message, a speaker loses much of their impact if their voice, appearance, mannerisms, or delivery is unpleasant.
Thank you SO much for the link!!!! I was clapping, woohoo’ing and absolutely inspired!
I SO needed that.
What do you mean “Her words make sense, but her delivery is Valley Girl Perky”?
She was fab! She spoke to us like regular people who know better than those “in charge”.
Crap.....just for once, I’d like to see a Sarah thread WITHOUT haters.
No question - Our country is in dire trouble, and perhaps that’s why I am a very ‘serious’ person and lean to seriousness in discussion.
Thank you so much for your wonderful compliments Jane, and Blessings to you too!
Romney would be President right now, and Obama would have retired.
But instead, Romney put himself first. So he lost.
Ditzy? Wish you Sarah haters would STFU. There was NOTHING “ditzy” about her speech.
That’s right, I said it......STFU.
Now go tell the mods on me.
I prefer to read speeches too, ex snook. I think it clarifies the intent of the spoken word.
For everyone worried about immigration, I’d just suggest to them that if she were ever President, I highly doubt she’d ever sign any form of amnesty or immigration reform. It probably wouldn’t make it through Congress anyway. I doubt one will even make it through this Congress. It’s really a red herring. Voting for her won’t lead to amnesty if that’s what youre concerned about.
Well there is a first time for everything.
Remember how bad she bombed with her acceptance speech when she was nominated along with McCain for the Presidential race a few years ago?
Of course McCain and Romney's goon squads got inspired and started stabbing her in the back because she did such a lousy job.
You betcha, good reply!
Assuming from your name, you are a girl. Sarah seems to have the “skinny gene” (wish I did).
She could probably drop 3-5 pounds within 2 days....where as I, would take a while.
She is also small boned. Even just a few pound weight loss will show on a petite boned woman.
Besides, as a woman, the clothes you wear can take off or add on poundage.
Nothing to worry about.
That was the AWESOME!!!!
There are still some jerks here on FR that have PDS. I got into an argument with one the other day. It surprises me they haven’t had the guts to jump into this thread.
