Governor Palin Fires Up Missoula Crowd

Posted by Sheya on September 12, 2010

The Missoulian reports:

Praising God and America, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin brought an adoring crowd to its feet with her message of faith, family and the power of prayer during a Sunday fundraising event to support a Christ-centered Missoula women’s residential center.

“God and family and country – take a stand in that order and things fall into place,” Palin told a sold-out crowd of 1,600 at the Hilton Garden Inn during her 40-minute talk at the “Raise the Roof” capital campaign for Teen Challenge.

“Taking a stand for God is not always easy … but it is always right and worthwhile,” Palin said.

God and prayer help people find their true calling and innate talents, she said, and in God’s “cosmic calculus” for each of us he provides the lessons we each must learn in our individual journeys.

Teen Challenge, she said, is an example of God’s work in action. Each day, the national program helps alcoholics become sober, drug addicts come clean and helps scared unwed teen mothers turn that hardship into life’s great blessing.

There are no perfect families, Palin said – and family isn’t just who you are born into, but who you choose to be around.

In the inevitable troubled times, it is faith in God – and prayer – that see people through.

[…]

To the roar of her appreciative crowd, Palin fired off several one-liners over the course of her talk.

“Why is it called the far right when it is just common sense?” she asked. “The government that governs least governs best.”

Robust applause erupted when Palin boldly laid out her no-holds-barred opinion about the way the country is currently being governed.

“The things they are doing in Washington, D.C., are absolutely whacked,” she said. “They are upside-down.”

When the crowd quieted, Palin continued with her thoughts on the current state of affairs in America and on leadership.

Not wanting to get “too political,” Palin shared, but touched lightly on her beliefs.

“I love my country and I love our system, but government can’t fix the problems – government is the problem,” she said. “Government can’t dry a tear or lend a shoulder or put back together a family, or country or state.”

Sarah Palin signs a T-shirt for Teen Challenge, which auctions it off for $3,500. Palin says she’ll add another $3,500 of her own.

Sarah Palin Introduces Glenn Beck to Alaska at 9/11 Event in Anchorage

Sarah Palin/Glenn Beck Appearance in Anchorage …, posted with vodpod

The Alaska Daily News has a video gallery here.

Governor Palin introduced Glenn Beck to an enthusiastic crowd in Anchorage last night.  Local media coverage was typically snarky, but enough details emerged to get a fairly accurate picture of the event.  About 80 protesters, organized by the Alaska mafia, as they are known to Sarah Palin supporters,  showed up in a crowd of 4000. 

Craig Medred at The Alaska Dispatch, known for its negative reporting on Sarah Palin, wrote:

For almost an hour on this night, they kept an enthusiastic and near-to-capacity crowd in the Denaina Convention Center waiting to see what was going to happen. Scheduled for an 8 p.m. kick off, the Palin-Beck show didn’t start until almost 9 p.m. The audience didn’t seem to care. They welcomed Palin politely with loud applause, and then went ballistic when Beck hit the stage.

Reading from a polished script, Palin opened the show in her now familiar Minnesota twang. She referenced meeting Beck in New York in the shadow of Lady Liberty — a monument given to the United State by France, she said, as “a gift to warn us against socialism.”

Jackie Bartz at ktuu.com reported:

By 10 p.m. the protesters had gone home, while ticket holders continued to take in the show.

Palin attended Saturday’s event to introduce her friend and fellow Fox News commentator Beck — but before he joined her on stage, she had a few things to say.

Palin poked fun at what she calls the liberal media, accusing reporters of manipulating her words and news organizations of having their own agenda.

Both Palin and Beck said Saturday’s rally was about honoring America. The two say it’s important to move the country forward. Palin held a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11 nine years ago, after attending a remembrance rally in the Mat-Su Valley earlier in the day.

To the crowd’s enjoyment, the duo also addressed rumors that they would announce a 2012 political run at the rally, with Palin claiming the announcement would come on local radio station KWHL’s “Bob and Mark Show.”

Rachel D’Oro of the Associated Press wrote:

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck teamed up in the former Alaska governor’s home state Saturday night, delivering their messages to a crowd of thousands and recalling their thoughts and feelings the day of the 9/11 attacks.

Palin applauded the conservative commentator as an inspiration for millions, saying he represents why so many citizens never have to apologize for being American.

She also laughingly noted “goofy” media speculations about her real intentions for appearing on an Anchorage stage with Beck.

“Evidently I’m supposed to make a big announcement here, Glenn and I together, make some big announcement, maybe about the 2012 election or something,” the potential 2012 presidential contender said to cheers and whistles.

Beck played along, telling Palin that he would not be a candidate.

“I’d like to announce that in 2012, we will both be … voting,” Beck said, pausing for comic effect.

Palin and Beck, a popular Fox News Channel personality, took turns recalling what they were doing when they heard of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Palin, who was mayor of Wasilla at the time, said she got a call from the town’s police chief about the attacks, then turned on her television.

“It looked unreal that this was happening to our country,” she said.

She said she shut down city hall, then went over to her church to pray for the country.

Beck said he was getting ready for work when he learned of what had happened in New York and at the Pentagon.

“Here we are so many years later, and I fear we are forgetting,” he said.

Earlier this week, Palin promoted Saturday’s event at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center on her Facebook page, saying Beck could be counted on to make for an interesting and inspiring night.

“I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will ‘never forget,'” Palin wrote.

John McCormick at Bloomberg.com wrote:

Fox News commentator Glenn Beck and Tea Party heroine Sarah Palin told an audience yesterday in Alaska that the U.S. has grown complacent about protecting itself since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

“I fear that we are forgetting what it takes,” Beck told about 4,000 at a convention center in Anchorage. “How do we not make the same mistake again?”

Palin, a former Alaska governor and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, pointed the blame at President Barack Obama.

“It starts from the top,” she said. “Those who kind of set the tone in our country that would lead us towards a complacency that is very, very, very dangerous. I fear that is why we are seeing the patterns we’re seeing right now, especially over the last 20 months.”

The Anchorage event, on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, came two weeks after Beck and Palin appeared together at the “Restoring Honor” rally on the National Mall in Washington, where they urged hundreds of thousands gathered there to embrace traditional American values.

Presidential Speculation

Palin, 46, is scheduled to speak Sept. 17 at a Republican Party event in Iowa, the state that holds the first presidential nominating contest.

After she gave a brief speech at a Sept. 11 commemoration in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, several in the audience approached her to encourage her to run for president in 2012.

“Bless your heart,” she told one man.

Palin said she was entertained by media speculation before the Anchorage event that she was going to announce a presidential bid with Beck at her side. If she did make such an announcement, Palin said it would be on an Alaska radio show.

“I laughed about some big 2012 announcement because, hey, if there’s going to be some big national announcement, I am going to do it where it is most worthy,” she said. “It’s going to happen on the Bob & Mark Show.”

Beck later asked Palin whether she planned to run for president. “Are you going to run, Glenn?” she responded, without answering his question.

Anchorage Event

Beck, 46, said the Anchorage event was not specifically designed for Sept. 11. Organizers had originally considered Sept. 4, and decided against it because they did not want to compete with the Alaska State Fair.

While final numbers are still being tabulated, Beck said on the day of the Washington rally that it had collected $5.5 million in donations for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which assists veterans and their families.

Beck donated his speaking fee from the Anchorage event to the same group and Palin didn’t receive one. Tickets ranged in price from $65 to about $200, with the priciest tickets including a “meet and greet” with Beck after the show.
