This is How Palin Supporters Roll

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 11, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

No one gives a speech like Governor Palin–and the reason for that is quite simple. When she speaks about America, about conservatism, about taking our country back, she means it. She speaks from the heart, and it shows.

As the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference this evening, the Governor raised the roof in one of the most passionate speeches I’ve heard her give. She further fired up a crowd that was already red hot with anticipation of her address to conservatives from across the nation.

ABC reports:

The most resounding speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference came not from a presidential candidate, or an elected official — but from Sarah Palin.

The screams and cheers that filled the spacious ballroom in which Palin spoke Saturday felt at times like they belonged at a Justin Bieber concert. A dozen times the conservatives at the conference leaped to their feet to applaud Palin, as she threw them line after line about beating President Obama and reclaiming “traditional values.”

“The president says small Americans, small-town Americans — we bitterly cling to our religion and our guns,” Palin said, referring to a comment Obama made in the last election, as the audience rose and cheered. “You say, I say, we say — keep your change. We’ll keep our God. We’ll keep our guns.”

[…]

“In America, we believe that competition strengthens us,” she said. “Competition relates to victory in 2012. We must stay true to our principles. I believe that the competition has got to keep going. But let’s make sure that the competition brings out the best in our party.

“We know that the far left and their media allies can’t beat us on the issues, so instead they’ll distort our records,” she added. “Let’s not do the job for them, OK, Republicans? OK, independents?”

Palin, wearing a bright-red blouse, black skirt and heels, spent her time on the stage bashing both Obama and Washington. But for all the contempt she had for Obama, she borrowed liberally from his most famous statements.

Perhaps alluding to Obama’s famous red-state/blue-state speech from the 2004 Democratic convention, Palin said in one of her frequent rhyming lines that Americans aren’t “red” or “blue.” She concluded, as the conservatives rose to their feet again, “We’re red, white and blue, and President Obama, we are through with you.”

“Hope and change — yeah, you’ve got to hope things change,” she added to laughs and more cheers.

At one point shouts of “USA!” broke out in the room. As it turned out, it was in response to some protesters who, apparently, don’t know how Governor Palin’s supporters roll:

For the first time at the three-day conference known as CPAC in Washington, protesters disrupted a speech. But the response from Palin’s loyal supporters was fierce. As protesters chanted at her from the back of the room at the Marriott, a man in the back row leaped over his chair, ran toward them and screamed, “Get the hell out of here, you asshole!”

The protesters were kicked out as others in the room began chanting “USA! USA!” followed quickly by “Sarah! Sarah!”

Read the full piece here.

The man’s language was more colorful than I would have used, but his actions are representative of Americans who are fed up with people trying to occupy space, violating others’ First Amendment rights while citing their own, and destroying everything in their path. His actions also demonstrate the readiness of the Governor’s supporters to defend her against incessant attacks by people who want to make her sit down and shut up, something which simply is not going to happen.

Lederman: Sarah Palin Would Have Won the CPAC Straw Poll

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on February 11, 2012

Josh Lederman at The Hill introduced his article entitled “Palin shines brightest at CPAC” with a very astute observation:

If Sarah Palin had been on the ballot for the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference, there is little doubt she would have won.

The former Alaska governor received far-and-away the most spirited and enthusiastic reception at this convention of about 10,000 conservative activists.

She drew the audience to its feet more than a dozen times during her keynote address on Saturday.

The cheers for Palin were so loud that they drowned out her remarks again and again. Conference organizers had to set up three overflow rooms to accommodate the throngs of supporters eager to hear her words.

“The president says small-town Americans, we bitterly cling to our religion and our guns because we’re just doggone frustrated with his pace of change,” Palin said. “We say, ‘Keep your change. We’ll keep our God, our guns, our Constitution.’ ”

Almost all of Palin’s address, which closed the three-day conference, derided President Obama with escalating intensity, throwing his campaign slogans back at him with irony and vitriol.

“Hope and change? Yea, you gotta hope things change,” she said.

Her audience ate it up.

Palin painted a portrait of a president who shames the military, increases dependence on the government and embraces corruption. She said only when he is ousted from the White House will the United States have a commander in chief worthy of U.S. troops.

“This is Obama’s Washington. It is not the Washington of our founders, but the Washington of the permanent political class,” she said. “It is something that our forefathers never envisioned as they would have sworn their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to change.”

Palin lingered in the ballroom for almost half an hour after completing her speech, greeting the supporters who lavished praise on her and chanted her first name.

“He says he has a jobs plan out, a jobs plan to ‘Win the Future.’ W.T.F. — I know,” she said.

Even the disruption of a gaggle of Occupy Wall Street protesters who heckled Palin became another symbol of her overwhelming support among this crowd of red-meat conservatives. The bulk of the crowd immediately coalesced to drown out the protesters with chants of “U.S.A.”

“I say to the Occupy protesters, you’re occupying the wrong place; you’re protesting the wrong thing,” Palin said later.

[…]

“We don’t know who our nominee will be to come up against Barack Obama and his failed policies in the fall,” she said. “We know this election will be hard-fought. Our nominee must be ready, strong, fortified, passionate, a fighter for American ideals.”

[…]

“Our candidate must be someone who can instinctively turn right to constitutional, conservative principles,” she said. “It’s too late in the game to teach it or to spin it at this point. It’s either there or it isn’t.”

Although lauding the benefits of a prolonged, competitive primary fight, Palin implored Republicans not to attack each other so vigorously that they would do Democrats’ work for them by undercutting their viability in the general election.

“We know that the far left and their media allies can’t beat us on the issues, so instead, they distort our records,” she said. “They’ll even attack our families. Let’s not do the job for them. OK, Republicans? OK, independents?”

And Palin, embracing the unconventional, defiant quality that helped her become a Tea Party luminary, warned Republicans not to take the movement for granted when more Tea Party candidates are elected in November.

“This time, establishment, we expect them to get leadership posts in Congress,” she said.

On behalf of the authors of the Sarah Palin Information Blog,  I want to wish Governor Palin a very happy birthday and many more to follow.  May the Lord continue to light your path, and may He help you to fulfill all your dreams and to accomplish His plan and purpose for your life.   We’re still hoping for the day we can call you President Palin, but we know that whatever leadership role you and He decide upon,  you will continue to make us proud.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GOVERNOR PALIN!

Birthday Message For Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 11, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Today is Governor Palin’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Gov! I speak for myself and a multitude of other Americans who are appreciative of all that you do for the cause of freedom and exceptionalism in this country. There is no other voice so firmly committed to common sense conservatism, and it has not come without a price. You have laid much on the line to fight for our future, and we thank you.

Shortly, you will take to the stage at CPAC and deliver the keynote address, a speech that will, no doubt, set the building on fire! Truth has a way of doing that, doesn’t it?

God bless you today, and may He grace you with many more years.
