Video: Palin rallies tea partiers for Ted Cruz on eve of Texas senate primary

posted at 10:01 pm on July 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via C4P. If Cruz wins on Tuesday, it’ll arguably be the biggest upset that tea partiers have ever pulled. Watch this and get your game face on.

The response from David Dewhurst HQ:

https://twitter.com/TeamDewhurst/statuses/228878465485639680

And from the candidate himself:

In the interview, Dewhurst also fired back specifically at DeMint, Paul and Lee, as well as former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who has previously endorsed Cruz.

“These are senators from South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah and Kentucky. With all due respect, they are from states that don’t have anywhere near the economy, state government and success that we have in Texas,” he said. “And he’s aligning himself with them over the work we’ve done here.”

Didn’t Dewhurst run several ads starring … Mike Huckabee? Hello?

The hate directed at @SarahPalinUSA for her tweet-pic of Chick-Fil-a is an example pf the toxicity directed at the business for the personal beliefs of its owner. I hope the haters of the left are content — the official spokesperson has died of a sudden heart-attack, after trying to deal with the ensuing stress.

The entire Romney effort directed at the Base is basically “he’s the Last Man Standing, you f**kers have nowhere to go.”

It’s usually followed by “If Romney isn’t elected, if you don’t turn out for Mittens, how are we going to get more justices on the Supreme Court like Alito and Roberts?”

That last one hasn’t been working out to well lately.

The Establishment GOP is as corrupt as it is out of answers. One can tell by the vigor with which it attacks leading conservatives who want to lead the Party back to what Reagan and Goldwater stood for.

Of course, that might get in the way of the kickbacks, the graft, and the sewer money. We can’t have that, can we? After all, we’re Republicans!

Our graft and corruption is good graft and corruption!

SWalker on July 28, 2012 at 12:23 PM

Sorry, Sarah, I voted for you in 2008 and agree with you on most issues, but you are a terrible speaker and you don’t exactly exude dignity.

The only people who would want to listen to this whole thing are Sarah Palin fans. I wanted to mute it after a few minutes because it was giving me a headache. Most of her little talk is just pablum shouted out with a screechy voice and a baby-ish, wannabe cutesy/folsky style. Sounds like she’s reading a story to an elementary school student assembly. And is she looking for a certain kind of attention wearing that ultra tight top?

Sarah’s already-getting-tiresome shtick might be good for a primary campaign, but we would do best to keep this woman away from the general election spotlight that she apparently so craves for herself. It’s doubtful she would convince any undecideds or independents to come to our side; if anything, this woman, known largely for incompetence and for resigning in disgrace after less than one term as governor, would scare them off and make Obama, in some voters’ eyes, look dignified and attractive by comparison.

Sarah Palin can be a help, but definitely NOT as the public face of conservatism or the Republican Party.

Odysseus on July 28, 2012 at 10:42 AM

Romney is going to have to EARN Palin’s support somehow, but I think (hope) he’s also a smart enough businessman to recognize how including her in a powerful position in his administration will energize the conservative base and pull his milquetoast ass across the finish line.

I’ve wondered what Cabinet Secretary position would empower Palin to effect the most change in our energy policies (Interior? Energy? Commerce?) but Milquetoast better also be willing to get the hell out of her way and let her get it done.

Business is business. Romney NEEDS Palin’s support and the base of voters she will energize to get elected. Romney also NEEDS the policy direction that Palin brings to the table to be a successful president. I hope he’s smart enough to realize that.

Odysseus on July 28, 2012 at 10:42 AM

A lot of people seem to be confused as to what the Energy Department actually does. It has little or nothing to do with oil or gas. The Energy Department’s only critical functions are construction and stewardship of our nuclear warhead stockpile, nuclear fuel production and life-cycle management, and regulating the nuclear power industry. It’s a job for a nuclear physicist or an Admiral who dealt extensively with nuclear propulsion. Palin is not really qualified for that and Interior Secretary would be a far better fit. The Interior Department is the department that manages oil and gas regulations, drilling permits, the national parks, fish and wildlife related issues, and other things that she knows a lot about. It’s a moot point since Romney would never hire her and she would never work for him. And I really doubt she wants to face a nasty inquisition by a bunch of scummy partisan hack Senators in a confirmation hearing.

Walter Sobchak on July 28, 2012 at 1:02 PM

As someone who attended this packed event…of course, the local wing nut media is ‘under’ reporting the crowd size, 1250-1500 easy, Sarah rocked the place with her 20 minute, ‘non-teleprompter’ speech, and gave a nice plug for Chick-fil-a, along the way. Hotter than hell last night, but that didn’t dampen the crowds’ love for Sarah. Ted Cruz and Jim DeMint, gave very passionate speeches… This is what the Texas Tea Party is all about.

Now for the trolls, there WAS NO rapes, assaults, outbursts, gun play, crapping on cars, or the other usual types of situations that always seem to follow their side… and sad to say, we left the place cleaner than we found it…

Harbingeing on July 28, 2012 at 12:43 PM

I’m not sure Mitt believes that. For some reason I think Mitt has allowed himself to believe that Palin just represnets a small vocal minority of people that Mitt doesn’t really need. It’s stupid to believe so with all the hard evidence of how her endorsement has propelled people to victory this year and in 2010 but the “smartest people in the room” seem to think this is true.

unseen on July 28, 2012 at 1:03 PM

unseen on July 28, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Well, I hope that’s not true. Mittens IS a smart and successful businessman, and you have to have a certain mindset to accomplish that. Mitt, undeniably, has the mindset of a successful businessman, and has demonstrated successes at the micro- and macro- levels. I admire his business acumen tremendously.

What any such businessman understands is this: For every key position in a successful enterprise (of any kind), you find the most accomplished and demonstrably successful person you can find to do that job, and ignore any differences you may have with them in other areas, where they would have no authority anyway.

In the area of Energy and resource management, there is no more accomplished and successful track record than what Gov Palin did to unlock the resources in Alaska and create the energy economy that they now so ungratefully enjoy.

If Romney makes the truly smart business decision here, Palin will be named Sec of Interior, in exchange for her support and the enthusiastic conservative voting bloc she would undeniably bring to the 2012 election.

(thanks WSobchak – I thought Interior might be the better fit for Palin)

Next allow me to deconstruct what the gilled one is actually saying while she fills the thread with the stench of rotting fish.

I agree.

I’m tired of this lack of Mitt Romney worship. The fact is I have no job without being a fluffer and Moby, and I whine and seek the spotlight for myself way too much. And let’s not even get into my stumbles during the 2012 commenting season on almost all of HA’s threads.

There are other, vastly more impressive fluffing nut jobs who are much more deserving of the attention that is undeservedly heaped on this lightweight .

I appreciate a great fluffing as much as the next person, but enough is enough already. My act is wearing a bit thin and my neck is developing a serious crook. Wait I’m a fish I don’t even have a neck. Stench I’ve got plenty.

From what I can tell Dew comes from an oil business background and Cruz comes from lawyer background. I hate lawyers. I know enough about them to know there are enough in DC, they are always elitist, statist, and condescending in their views of the public at large.

Cruz will be a corrupt laughing stock. Mark my words.

That is the most insane thing I’ve ever heard. David Dewhurst supported a STATE INCOME TAX for Texas, do you? He also lauds his “business experience” while neglecting to mention his eight years as LT. Gov in which he has spent most of his time cowering to the Federal Government.

I’ll wager to say that you are not a native Texan, most likely a transplant from Commiefornia.

How sad.

The most important election of our lifetime, without question, and people are still hopped up about trivial crap such as the polish and finish of Sarah Palin? Really?

Haters are going to hate. Roger, out. Message received.

Here’s a newsflash – the Dems sound much worse, and govern even more so. Whatever percentage of the vote that Palin brings to the table, we are going to need it and more.

Right now, it is about firing up the base, and getting people to the polls. If you don’t aren’t a Palin fan, no worries as there are plenty of folks in both the liberal and independent camps who agree with you. But they were never going to vote our way or support our cause in any event.

That’s the truth and you know it.

Sure, I am an admitted Palinista, but I am also a concerned American who wants to save the country. We need all hands on deck, and we need to stop trashing our own.

We’ll NEVER get the perfect candidate who will walk through fire for us to get the nation back on track, but we can damn support the ones who will take the heat and receive the incoming rounds to get more GOP souls in elected office.

I’ll hold my nose a bit, vote for Romney, support his VP choice (as I really have no alternative), and pray that he appoints Palin to be his Energy Secretary.

My two cents. Your mileage may vary.

I was at the rally last night mainly to see Jim Demint who’s had my undying gratitude since the great amnesty battle of 2007. I’m no Palinista but wanted to see her in person too. I have to admit that I was impressed. Mainly because she just said what was on her mind with few notes. I don’t think anyone can deny that she loves this country, unlike the current occupant in the WH who obviously despises America and anyone who doesn’t “look like he does.” I’m repeating myself now, but she looked like a native Texan in those boots, of which I’m determined to get a pair now.

What a stupid thing to say. What are you even talking about? Are you saying that Sarah Palin, the failed, famously divisive, polarizing 2008 VP candidate is entitled to speak at our 2012 convention? Is this really that important for her ego? This woman is detested by independents and only helps Democrats in the general election. She should let other more relevant and capable Republicans like Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Chris Chistie, Paul Ryan, Michele Bachmann (none of whom are quitters like Sarah Palin), etc. get the attention.

Palin needs to realize that she’s not the star of the show anymore.

You Palin groupies are a sad bunch. The fact is, people tolerate Palin and think she’s a basically good (if attention-seeking, incompetent) person, but most people don’t take her seriously AT ALL. They’d never vote for a joke like her. We don’t take what she says at all seriously.

That’s the point. The less Sarah Palin is out of the news, the more people are willing to say they like her. She’s like a child to whom you would say, “there, there, now take this treat and go off and play somewhere while the adults conduct business.” Most even know she was treated unfairly and pity her, but no one but a small deluded bunch of Palin groupies long to see her run for president.

Sorry, but Palin wouldn’t have lasted a single week in a primary campaign. She would have made Rick Perry and Herman Cain look like intellectual policy geniuses. Palin knew she never had a chance, so she didn’t run… she didn’t want to risk tarnishing her money-making brand.

LOL bluegill. Sarah isn’t running for anything, she is SUPPORTING and getting conservative candidates ELECTED. She is doing more for Republicans than any current GOP official.
Therefore, she should be the key speaker of the Republican convention. Sure she will outshine Romney but it isn’t her fault that Romney is boring and not really a conservative.

You kept saying that Sarah has high negatives and would hurt Romney chances to be elected which IS NOT TRUE. Sarah Palin has higher approval rating than Romney, will fire up the base and get many independents to vote ABO (not for Romney but against Obama).

Sarah Palin is a true conservative unlike our current two faced nominee…

Are you one of those people who think Sarah Palin is “feared” because she’s supposedly a serious political force?

Most conservatives do NOT want an incompetent like Palin being held up as the public face of conservatism or the Republican Party.
As for Democrats, far from fearing Palin, they would welcome her return to prominence more than anyone because they know what a gift to them she is. Democrats might have feared her at one point for a day or two after the 2008 VP announcement and before most people knew anything about her and before she exposed herself and what an unprepared embarrassment she was. From that point on, Democrats never feared her. Democrats want to run against Sarah Palin again because they know they’d win in a landslide. Conservatives who care about winning general elections just wish Sarah Palin would go away!

Cruz & Co might just pull this off. My Texas relatives are solidly lined up behind Cruz. In most other states (not Oklahoma, of course, which is redder than Texas), Dewhurst would be a satisfactorily conservative Republican. In Texas, a guy who’s not a crank can run to the right of him. Awesome.

Sarah Palin has higher approval rating

jules on July 29, 2012 at 10:47 AM

You are using the term “approval rating” incorrectly. People are not “approving” of Sarah’s time in public office, nor are they saying they would ever vote for her. The longer Palin (like any other former politician) is out of the national political spotlight, the more people will be willing to say they have a favorable view of her.

The last time Sarah Palin was considered a potential player in national politics (a year or so ago), her unfavorability rating was shockingly high. That is because Palin is not taken seriously by anyone besides a small band of people.

Also, I wouldn’t give Palin credit for the Cruz campaign’s success. The way you Palin groupies give Palin credit for everything is beyond arrogant. Palin’s endorsement doesn’t mean quite as much as you all make it out to mean. We all saw what happened after the Palins endorsed Newt Gingrich during the presidential primary campaign. That’s right, Newt was soundly defeated in FL by a vastly superior candidate.

Sarah Palin is just a gimmicky, shallow, unqualified, incompetent joke about which delusional people have created a whole myth… similar to Obama, in fact.

As posted earlier, Palin as higher approval numbers than Romney…:)

You can howl and scream all you want, in fact you are quite entertaining with your daily Palin rants. But you do realize that we are laughing at you not with you. I hope you live a long life, because Palin will be a flying the Conservative flag for many years to come, and no doubt your Palin rants will become more delusional as time passes.

You need her one hell of a lot more than she needs you.

Primary Season = Mitt campaigns and wins. Sarah campaigns(?) and doesn’t run.

I’m sorry but your logic is, well, illogical.

I’m repeating myself now, but she looked like a native Texan in those boots, of which I’m determined to get a pair now.

Grow up – Swooning over a carpetbagger wearing a pair of boots that haven’t been broken-in is not only unbecoming, but unTexan as well (and before you say anything I’m a fifth generation Texan and member of the SRT).
