Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who rallied members of the Tea Party in their failed effort to defund Obamacare, lashed out on Saturday against members of the Republican Party who agreed to end the government shutdown.
The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee's comments during a speech in Des Moines come at a time of division within the party over the strategy conservative members of Congress adopted in forcing a 16-day shutdown of the federal government last month.
Palin told the Christian conservatives in attendance it was time to "stiffen our spines" for the 2014 elections.
"I want to encourage you to make your voice heard, to hold politicians accountable," Palin said.
The bulk of Palin's speech was focused on the nation's current political climate. She drew thunderous applause with her sharp attack on Republicans in Congress who voted in October to raise the nation's debt ceiling and reopen the government.
"They promised that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare, but when it came time to stand and defund it, they waved the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight for us," Palin said.

FreeRepublic is not immune to RINO shills who contrive any grievance possible against Palin.
In advertising, it’s called a “hit.” Engineer enough “hits” on any figure, and you’ve successfully undermined confidence in that figure regardless of the objective circumstances.
Justice Thomas is probably the best known example. His “believability” numbers flip-flopped with those of Anita Hill after one year on the court though absolutely zero new information became available. This was, of course, due to the advertising campaign waged against him by the MSM.
Yours is an excellent, encouraging, and truthful post.
