Skip to comments.CPAC to Palin: ‘Run, Sarah, Run!’
Posted on 03/08/2014 5:44:57 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The crowd here at the Conservative Political Action Conference gleefully embraces the political figures Democrats and the media love to hate, and it is full of adoration for Sarah Palin.
You love her because she drives liberals crazy, the National Rifle Associations Chris Cox said as he introduced the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee.
Palin delivered the closing remarks at this years conference and, in a speech that touched on topics ranging from Obamacare to the Republican establishment to Ted Cruz to the war on women, she brought the audience of approximately 11,000 to its feet repeatedly with the sassiness and attitude that has become her calling card.
The age of Obama is almost over, she announced. This is the end of an error, he is the lamest of lame ducks.
Palin also launched an assault on the party establishment, which she said is urging Republicans to law low while Obamacare and the presidents feckless foreign policy create problems for Democrats.
You do interrupt when they are in the process of destroying your country, and thats what were gonna do in 2014, she said. Audience members interrupted to exclaim, Run, Sarah, run! (She garnered just 2 percent in the conferences annual presidential straw poll.)
Palins message to President Obama, who is in the midst of a stand off with Russian president Vladimir Putin over his incursion into Ukraine: Mr. President, she said, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke. Then she acknowledged she should be more understanding in the face of the presidents troubles. After all, who could have seen this one coming? she quipped, referring to her 2008 prediction that American inaction in the face of Putins invasion of Georgia would encourage him to invade Ukraine.
I love coming back here because there are always so many young people or, as youre known by the folks across the river, Obamacare suckers, she said. Turns out, you have the change that they were waiting for: You have the $5s, the $10s, and the $20s.
They said the train of history was roaring to the left, she said, but then, something happened. That Hope and Change went from a catchy campaign slogan to a reality and along the way, Hope and Change, Yes we can, it became No You Cant': No you cant log on to the website. No, you cant keep your health care. No, you cant make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing this is the third time you dialed Pizza Hut delivery.
Pushing back against the Democrats claim that the Republican partys pro-life stance constitutes a war on women, she told the women in todays audience, of the Democratic party, Dont let them use you unless you choose to be their political pawn or just their accessory on their arm. Honey, thats not liberation, thats subjugation, and this sisterhood fights against that.
Palin electrified the audience at last years conference by tacitly rebuking New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, pulling a Big Gulp soda from beneath the podium and taking a big sip. Shoot, its just pop with lo-cal ice cubes in it! she shrugged, and pumped the cup over her head when she left the stage.
Moments before Palin took the stage, Rand Paul claimed a victory in the conferences annual presidential straw poll for the second year in a row.
Palin, who heads a political action committee dedicated to backing candidates that she supports, and who will host the show Amazing America on the Sportsman Channel starting next month, has not backed a 2016 presidential candidate yet, but did give a special shout out to freshman senator Ted Cruz. Liberty needs a Congress on Cruz control, she said, praising Cruzs all-night filibuster and his attempt to defund Obamacare, which she said had helped to wake people up to the horrors of Obamacare.
Palin offered her own version of Green Eggs and Ham after offering praise for Cruz, who read the book on the Senate floor during his filibuster against Obamacare last fall.
I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like this health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books, she said. The audience laughed and cheered.
I do not like this spyin man, I do not like Oh, yes we can, she continued. I do not like this kind of hope, and we wont take it nope, nope, nope.
And yet the straw poll — is rigged.
Not only would I vote for her, I would donate and I would man the phone banks, put up signs and go talk to my neighbors.
Christie - I MIGHT hold my nose and vote for him. More likely to vote 3rd party.
I'm sure she will be sued by the Dr Suess estate first thing Monday morning.
About 95% of the people in the Drudge poll are saying "Don't run, Sarah, don't run."
When they vote for Christie (who, btw, is LOSING to Palin) they’re telling her not to run? Hahahahaha!
She is great at what she does
Neither she nor Cruz should run in 2016
Yeah, let’s nominate Jeb Bush or Chris Christie, right?
Not only would I vote for her, I would donate and I would man the phone banks, put up signs and go talk to my neighbors.”
me too! BIG TIME!
Governor Palin speaks for middle, rural, and blue collar America and in turn will help raise the spirits of the people in poverty and those who are wealthy through hard work too.
Also, she is the only Republican who will call a spade a spade and will call the Left who they really are.
Accusations of being a Palin "worshiper" or "cult" are strawman-based arguments as conservatives are used to being led around the nose by establishment hack Republicans who promise to spend a little less X amount of dollars on failed socialist programs than Democrats.
The days of holding my nose, or rationing that half a loaf is better than none, are over. If Palin runs, I and millions of other conservatives will release pent-up fury and excitement that will be the political equivalent of detonating a hydrogen bomb.
If Palin does not run and the establishment nominate another weak-tea Republican, then I am retreating further up north to an undisclosed spot and getting prepared for what's coming.
Drudge poll is showing a neck and neck with Cruz and Paul.
Cruz is my choice. ABOLISH THE GODAMN IRS!
I'm leaning toward Cruz myself, though I don't expect the IRS to disappear in my lifetime.
About 95% want anyone but her to run.
Yeah, that’s what they meant when they preferred someone else. So, going by that, 94% don’t want Jebbie, 98% don’t want Jindal, 99.5% don’t want Santorum and etc. Or are you just singling her out because you don’t like her?
I mentioned her because she's the one this thread is about.
“No, you cant make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing this is the third time you dialed Pizza Hut delivery.
I want Sarah as the RNC Chair, hand-picking candidates from Dog Catcher on up. (Like THAT will ever happen, LOL!)
Go with your strengths. The Enemy Media will be RELENTLESS should she run - she needs to work behind the scenes.
Covert Ops have always served me well, as they will America. :)
They attacked Milt, who saw eye-to-eye with them on 95% of the issues. Are we cowards now?
Yeah, lets nominate Jeb Bush or Chris Christie, right?
WHAT’S CRUCIAL IS AMNESTY....EVERYTHING ELSE PALES IN COMPARISON TO THIS NATION DESTROYER...WE CAN PRETTY MUCH SURMISE JEB’S PUSHIN A ‘LET EM IN’ STANCE ...
ANYBODY KNOW CHRISTIE’S?
