Sarah Palin to Obama: “Mr. President, Game On!”

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 31, 2012

One of Governor Palin’s most outstanding speeches was given in Madison, Wisconsin at the Tax Day Tea Party.   Governor Palin took the fight to the opposition as she supported Governor Scott Walker and conservatives in their fight against the union thugs in Wisconsin.

Clay Barbour and Doug Erickson reported on the event at the Wisconsin State Journal:

Cold, blustery conditions did little to quell the heated rhetoric Saturday as thousands gathered at the state Capitol for a pair of dueling rallies.

But what started with a tax day event on the east side and a pro-union rally on the south side turned quickly into a contest over who could scream louder as union supporters crowded tea party activists and tried to drown out their speakers.

The commotion, however, did not stop keynote speaker Sarah Palin from hitting her marks. Braving the snow and stinging wind, the former Alaska governor took shots at unions and the president, while defending Gov. Scott Walker and his efforts to curb collective bargaining for public employees.

“Your governor did the right thing and you won,” she yelled, over the din of protesters. “Your beautiful state won.”

Saturday marked the third straight year Wisconsin’s tea parties have hosted a Tax Day Rally at the Capitol. This year’s event occurred in the shadow of a two-month battle between union supporters and the governor.

That tension gave birth to the counter rally, which took place on the opposite side of the Capitol and featured speakers like Mayor-elect Paul Soglin and state Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton.

Walker’s controversial collective bargaining bill, currently stuck in the courts, has sharply divided the state and led to recall efforts against eight Republican state senators. And though eight Democratic senators also face possible recalls, Saturday’s tea party rally was seen by many as an effort to energize the GOP in the face of growing opposition.

“I think everything that’s happened in the past few months has them worried,” said Kimi Ishikawa, a Madison-area teacher who attended the counter-rally. “I think they now know we are going to keep going and not let up.”

According to Capitol police, about 6,500 attended the rallies. Officials could not say which was bigger, mainly because the counter-rally protesters spent as much time jeering the tea party event as they did listening to their own speakers. Most observers agreed, however, that both crowds seemed roughly equal in size.

Palin was joined Saturday in the tea party rally by radio personality Vicki McKenna, Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund and controversial conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who at one point told the loud counter-protesters to “go to hell.”

Palin spent much of her 16-minute speech criticizing President Obama but started with praise for Walker. Noting that she has many teachers in her family, and is a former union member herself, Palin said Walker understands that a state must be solvent in order to take care of its public sector workers.

“He’s not trying to hurt union members, he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions,” she said.

Wearing a skirt and no hat or gloves, she didn’t seem bothered by the weather, saying, “I feel like I’m at home.” She said she came to Madison because “this is where real courage and real integrity can be found.”

Palin lit into Obama, calling his financial stimulus package “useless” and several of his initiatives, including “really fast trains” and solar shingles, “cockamamie and harebrained.” She mentioned 2012 repeatedly, at one point saying, “The 2012 election begins here.”

Jedediah Bila wrote at The Daily Caller:

The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate credited the Tea Party with winning “an electoral victory of historic proportions last November.” She praised Scott Walker’s efforts toward fiscal discipline. She stood up to the GOP establishment. And she had a strong message for Barack Obama as we approach 2012: “Mr. President, game on!”

Palin, who stems from “a family of schoolteachers,” reached out to Wisconsin’s union members: “I’m here today as a patriot, as a taxpayer, as a former union member, and as the wife of a union member … A pension is a promise that must be kept. Now your Governor, Scott Walker, understands this. He understands that states must be solvent in order to keep their promises. And that’s what he’s trying to do. He’s not trying to hurt union members. Hey, folks — he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions.”

She talked tough with respect to the watered-down budget compromise reached by President Obama, John Boehner, and Harry Reid, affirming, “That is not courage. That’s capitulation.” She added, “Now there is a lesson here — in the Beltway politico, something that they need to understand — the lesson comes from here in Madison. So, our lesson is to the GOP establishment first … if you stand on the platform, if you stand by your pledges, we will stand with you. We will fight with you, GOP. We have your back. Together we will win because America will win.”

“We didn’t elect you just to re-arrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic,” Palin continued. “We didn’t elect you just to stand back and watch Obama redistribute those deck chairs. What we need is for you to stand up, GOP, and fight.” She added, “Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women’s hockey team — those champions — maybe I should ask them if we should be suggesting to GOP leaders, they need to learn how to fight like a girl!”

Palin called out President Obama on his unsuccessful stimulus, big-government promoting SOTU address, and proclivity toward ignoring the will of the people via Obamacare, reckless spending, and proposals for tax increases on the middle class and job creators. She challenged his tendency to “apologize for America while you bow and kowtow to our enemies and you snub our allies like Israel,” as well as the manner in which “you [Barack Obama] cut off oil development here and then you hypocritically praise foreign countries for their drilling.”

“We the people, we rose up, and we decisively rejected the Left’s big-government agenda,” Palin asserted. “We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to pay for it.”

[…]

She continued, “No, our president isn’t leading. He’s punting on this debt crisis. The only future that Barack Obama is trying to win is his own re-election. He’s willing to mortgage your children’s future to ensure his own. And that is not the audacity of hope. That’s cynicism. Piling more debt onto our children and our grandchildren — it’s not courage. No, that’s cowardice.” She added, “You ignored us in 2010. But you cannot ignore us in 2012.”

Palin expressed strong support for common-sense conservatives in Madison and a positive message for America as we look forward to the next presidential election: “Madison, you defended that 2010 electoral mandate. You are heroes. You are patriots. And when the history of this Tea Party movement is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten. Your historic stand brought down the curtain on the last election, and the 2012 election begins here. We will take the courage and the integrity that you showed all of America. We will take it and we will win back our country … We will fight for America. And it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin. It starts here! It starts now! … Mr. President, game on!”

Palin’s Madison speech reminds us of some important things. She’s not in the least bit afraid of a tough crowd. She’ll hold members of her party accountable if they don’t keep their word. She is passionate about the Tea Party movement and isn’t about to abandon her conservative principles in order to fit in with what’s cool in D.C. And she is one tough cookie.

Most importantly, Sarah Palin sounds ready, willing, and able to tackle the Obama agenda. Like I always say, let the games begin.

“The Undefeated” Film Premieres in June

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 24, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – MotivationTruth

There’s breaking news tonight. A new film about Governor Palin will premiere in June. This certainly appears to indicate Game On. While those intent on doing the Governor harm further embarrass themselves with disloyalty, mischaracterizations, and outright lies, she has put her stamp of approval on a film that will shed more light on the truth about her political career, her record, and her credentials, you know–the things that matter.

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics reports:

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin’s governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of some Republicans who once were eager to get behind her potential 2012 presidential campaign.

The response was more positive than Palin could have hoped for. He’d make a feature-length movie, Bannon told Mansour, and he insisted upon taking complete control and financing it himself — to the tune of $1 million.

The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska’s most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin’s prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won’t run.

Bannon, a former naval officer and ex-Goldman Sachs banker, sees his documentary as the first step in Palin’s effort to rebuild her image in the eyes of voters who may have soured on her, yet might reconsider if old caricatures begin to fade. The film will also appeal to staunch Palin supporters who have long celebrated her biting rhetoric and conservative populism yet know little about her record in Alaska and have perhaps written her off as presidential material.

“This film is a call to action for a campaign like 1976: Reagan vs. the establishment,” Bannon told RealClearPolitics. “Let’s have a good old-fashioned brouhaha.”

RealClearPolitics was recently given an exclusive screening of a rough cut of the now finished film, which Bannon designed, in part, to help catapult Palin from the presidential afterthought she has become in the eyes of many pundits directly to the front lines of the 2012 GOP conversation.

[…]

Although Palin is not interviewed directly, the film features on-camera interviews and commentaries from 10 Alaskans who played different roles in her political rise, as well as six Lower 48 denizens who defend her in more visceral terms, including prominent conservative firebrands Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart and Tammy Bruce.

Divided into three acts, the film makes the case that despite the now cliched label, Palin was indeed a maverick who confronted the powerful forces lined up against her to achieve wide-ranging success in a short period of time. The second part of the film’s message is just as clear, if more subjective: that Sarah Palin is the only conservative leader who can both build on the legacy of the Reagan Revolution and bring the ideals of the tea party movement to the Oval Office.

[…]

In the last couple of months, Palin has delivered major policy speeches, hired a chief of staff, made a well-publicized foreign trip that included a visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, all the while remaining consistent about her vow — first made just days after the 2008 campaign ended — that she would “crash through” any of the “open doors” that might lead to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Bannon intends to premiere the film in Iowa late next month before expanding the release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. After the initial rollout in the four early voting states, the filmmaker will eventually release it to somewhere between 50 and 100 markets nationwide.

[…]

If she does decide to run, “The Undefeated” will be the key element to her initial coming-out party. The film’s impending release — and the frenzied media attention that it is sure to generate — will serve as a vivid wake-up call that despite the many obstacles in front of her, Palin’s entry into the race would turn the campaign on its head in an instant, just as it did in 2008.

As she mulls her decision in the coming weeks, the other Republican candidates in the field will be left to prepare for a hibernating grizzly who appears poised to rise up once again.

It just might be that time!
