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?

All she has to do is show up and the DemocRAT apparatchiks go crazy.

She has star quality and that’s a fact. Glad she is a real conservative.

So after seeing this speech tell me again why She should not speak at the convention Mitt? It is passion like this that you need to win Mitt. You and your team don’t have it so you might as well outsource that key ingredient to someone that does bring the house down. You will need every vote to win Mitt. this isn’t going to be a cake walk and being not Obama is not good enough to win Mitt. You need to wake people up you certainly can’t do it. Bring the person that can in to help you close the deal.

Palin wows The Woodlands

On a village green in The Woodlands, north of Houston, Friday evening, an enthusiastic crowd of approximately a thousand tea partiers joined U.S. Senate hopeful Ted Cruz in a “Yes, We Can” chant parodying the current occupant of the White House and gave a rapturous welcome to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who told the crowd that those “who cling to our guns, God and Constitution” have a friend in Cruz.

http://blog.chron.com/texaspolitics/2012/07/palin-wows-the-woodlands/?gta=commentlistpos#commentlistpos

“There will be an Alaskan-sized blizzard on the Brazos before Texas turns blue for Barack,” said Palin, who wore dark sunglasses and black boots given to her by Gov. Rick Perry, who’s backing Dewhurst. Palin assured the crowd they would all be back on the same team after Tuesday.

Palin spent most of her 20-minute remarks lambasting Obama and what she called “the permanent political class” in Washington. Palin called Cruz’s election “a come-to-Jesus moment.”

“There is good news,” she said, “and that is, there is nothing wrong with America that a good, ol’ fair election can’t fix.”

She described Cruz as “a proven, common-sense constitutional conservative, and he’s a fighter and he will bring new leadership to the United States Senate. He will shrink government, he will be putting government back on the side of the American working man and he will defend the Constitution.”

“Ted is not going to D.C. to make nice with the foo-foo, chi-chi cocktail crowd,” she said. “He’s going to do the heavy lifting to rein in our out-of-control government.”

Luis Nieto, 72, a retired engineer from nearby Oak Ridge, liked what he heard. “I’ve already voted for Ted Cruz,” he said, “and I’m definitely going to vote against Barack Obama. I’ve never been a fan of Dewhurst. He goes with the flow. I don’t think he really takes a stand against anything.”

Palin also injected herself into the Chick Fil-A dustup over its owner’s support for traditional marriage. “Jason,” she said, talking to an aide, “you’re going to have to take me on our way back to the airport later. We drive back a Chick Fil-A. We don’t have that in Alaska. Love me some Chick Fil-A. So, we’ll go there, Jason, on the way, OK?” The crowd cheered.

Sandy Robinson, 53, a Woodlands business consultant, said she wasn’t sure who she supported until her mother-in-law in Dallas complained to her about “some nasty TV ads that Dewhurst was running. She was thinking they didn’t reflect the character of a man that ought to be in the U.S. Senate. Because my mother-in-law’s pretty sharp, she convinced me. Before I talked to her, I couldn’t really find the differentiation between the two men.”

They don’t consider her ‘the answer”, she’s a reflection of what IS the answer.

Cleombrotus on July 28, 2012 at 7:57 AM

You know most people I talk too are going to vote against Obama. Never really here anyone say they are going to vote for Mitt. I doubt that will be enough to win. Who knows maybe Obama really is that bad that it will be enough to not be Obama. It wasn’t enough for Kerry to not be bush and at least on the left Bush was seen as bad as Obama is seen on the right. I fear the GOP-e are committing the smae mistakes the dems committed in 2004. Who knows. I know conservatives and Palin missed a golden oppurtunity in 2012 to effect change in this country. Conservatives by going with ” someone that can win” and Palin by not running. I doubt we will ever get a dem POTUS this bad in the WH again and at this stage if people had a reason to vote for something as well as a reason to vote against Obama we would be talking landslide victory like in 2010. As it is we are talking a nail biting tie breaker.

That only tells part of the story; the Sarah Palin side of the story.

There’s a much bigger story here for those who care to spend the time to look for it.

It goes back to an ancient idea that has been present throughout Human history from the dust up between Plato and Pathagoras, through Jerusalem, onto the French Revolution and the Enlightenment, and now here.

Goes something like this:

” Justice is turned back,
and righteousness stands afar off;
for truth has fallen in the public squares,
and uprightness cannot enter.
Truth is lacking,
and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey”

Isaiah 59:14 – 15

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.

I’m tired of this Sarah Palin worship. The fact is she quit her job without even finishing one term, and she whines and seeks the spotlight for herself a little too much. And let’s not even get into her stumbles during the 2008 campaign.

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

You’re right again, ma’am. Folks like bluegill seem to have a disconnect. They don’t believe, as most Americans do,(and that’s why Reagan won)in the three-legged stool that is Conservatism. They believe that Conservatism can be re-defined to mean whatever they want it to mean…i.e. “fiscal” Conservatism. This erroneous belief in their own political punditry, masked by incessant political catch phrases and insults toward Reagan or “Social” Conservatives, is the reason why this upcoming Presidential Election has turned into a referendum against Obama, and not a groundswell in support of Romney. There are several of his “supporters” who, seemingly, have made it their mission in life to alienate Reagan Conservatives,who believe in God and country. And that’s not a way to garner support for your candidate. In fact, it’s the very opposite of what they need to be doing.

Because if you parse what’s she’s saying, it has little heft. You can tell when she’s being honest and when she’s in politician mode. Listen to any audio of her pre-Veep run and it’s a different person.

Outside of a congressional run, her best shot was a cabinet position with a dependent candidate like Newt. IMO, Romney stays away because he has that throwback quality and Palin, like Perry lives on the corner of charisma and flirtation. It’s not his style and she knows it.

I mean, could you imagine what she would be like if Perry was the nominee? It would be like an 80′s night soap opera where the subtext would lead half the country to believe the two were engaged at some point.

Your Republican Party simply wants to belly up to the trough and feed at a slightly slower pace than the Obamists do. Nothing you post here tells me otherwise.

I think you’re embarrassed by someone who takes the fight to the Left and doesn’t care whether the media accepts her or not, because she understands that the politics of the day is deeply toxic and fraudulent. That you are making attacks on Palin that are done on the Left’s terms speaks volumes to me, and tells me that “conservatives” like you are easily rolled by the Left and the Big Government Republican crowd.

I think Republicans like you want to be accepted by the Left as legitimate players. David Frum tried that; see how far it got him?

Why would anyone fawn over somebody that says/thinks this way:

I know, in reminding readers that my support for Barack Obama was qualified; that I simultaneously endorsed GOP Congressional candidates; that I never saw Obama as a messiah and, indeed, was repelled by the millenarian fervour of his supporters. Nor is there much purpose in rehearsing John McCain’s shortcomings. The fact remains that I backed the Democrat.

I was wrong. Not that Obama is without his good points, obviously. His commitment to school choice is unfeigned. His foreign policy has been a jolly sight cheaper than McCain’s would have been. The election of a mixed-race president who opposed the Iraq war has made the USA slightly more popular.

You will never catch Palin thinking in these terms.

Most people can’t seperate a person’s words from their deeds. Sure people Like Rubio and Hannan give a good speech but when the rubber meets the road their actions are progressive not conservative. I’m not one that gets caught up in speeches. Palin’s actions her record her ability to walk away from power instead of bitter cling to it is all I need to know that Palin is head and shoulders above any of the “conservatives” that the media and gop-e tells us should support.

the “idea” isn’t important. anyone can speak about an idea, anyone can read a book zot down the talking points and pretend to be conservative. Look at that childhood “conservative” talker who just came out and basically said that was what he did and is now a liberal. It is what most republicans in congress do. They get the poll tested talking points go to the voters spew those talking points to make you believe they are conservative then vote for every liberal progressive pork barrel project that comes down the pike. Conservativism invovles having character as well as the “idea” It matters who the person is.

Palin has been painted by the media, the left, the GOPe, and dishonest posters like you as incompetent, but her actual record and her accomplishments prove otherwise. Palin did NOT resign in disgrace. The fact that you have the need to repeat your lies about Palin just shows what a pitiful person you are.

NoNails on July 28, 2012 at 9:58 AM

The problem with the country isn’t just the Democrats, but Republicans like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Eric Cantor who talk a good game but refuse to cut big government.

The years 2001-2006 were the only time since 1932 when the GOP controlled the presidency and both houses of congress. Instead of working to cut government, Bush43, Bill Frist, Trent Lott and company expanded it.

Anyone who thinks Mitt Romney is the answer is kidding himself/herself. I am voting for Mitt not because I believe in him but rather that four more years of Obama is unthinkable.

bw222 on July 28, 2012 at 10:07 AM

As opposed to Romney, who did impose carbon trading schemes, and the blueprint for Obamacare, what a standard bearer for liberty, much like Cameron across the seas.

narciso on July 28, 2012 at 10:08 AM

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

bluegill on July 28, 2012 at 8:46 AM

bw222 on July 28, 2012 at 10:07 AM
excellent post,
to make things even more nutty if we simply reduced spending to 2006 levels we wouldn’t have a deficit with current tax structure. Revenues as to GDP would need to get back to 19% instead of the 15% we see now, but without a deficit that is likely. Tax reform is key, until those in power cannot write laws/regs that can basically rob people and give to themselves, their friends or allies things will never get better.

Romney must meet with Sarah and ask her to join his team – Romney must find a away to work through their differences – SARAH is the key to conservative hearts and minds – SARAH is the key to a landslide victory! SARAH is the FIRE that the Romney campaign is lacking!

Marco Rubio? The same squish who sided with John McCain against Michelle Bachmann in the Huma Abedin affair? Really? I’d suggest you rethink your idea of what it means to be “conservative,” but such a suggestion would surely fall on deaf ears.

gryphon202 on July 28, 2012 at 10:47 AM

I’m tired of this Sarah Palin worship. The fact is she quit her job without even finishing one term.

I appreciate Palin as much as the next person, but enough is enough already. Her act is wearing a bit thin.

bluegill on July 28, 2012 at 8:51 AM

I never understand why trolls like you refuse to explain what you would have done in the same situation. She was going bankrupt and nobody in Alaska would help her out. The state couldn’t fund her defense and she had pissed off the GOP establishment there by breaking up the Corrupt Bastards Club™ and while that made her popular among the state’s Dems, she had just run against the Democrat Jesus so there would be no help from that side.

She had no choice. If you don’t understand that simple fact then your statement about appreciating Palin is a baldfaced lie and a whopper of one at that.

Odysseus on July 28, 2012 at 10:48 AM

Palin is supporting mittens to beat obama in the only sane manner she has should he be elected, working to elect enough fiscal constitutional Senators to retake the upper chamber and hold his feet to the fire and begin the change of stripping the years and years and layers and layers of paint that has been slapped on DC to keep hidden the sad state it is in.

Well I don’t live in the heartland… But I do love me some Palin. She’d be infinitely better Obozo and her ideals seem to be right on target to strengthen America.

I’m still waiting to hear her stutter and stammer during a speech like Barry does… when he’s searching for the right way to phrase one of his ethereal lies. Amazing speaker, and the MSM should be ashamed but they are beyond the level of honesty required for that to ever happen.

She’s from the heart… and the Heartland.

Carter is about to eclipse Hoover for longevity after leaving office, won’t it be fun in 30 some years to see obama claim that title having spent all those years watching us unravel the ill’s his party had done, knowing he was the catalyst for the resurgence of founding principles.

smitty41 on July 28, 2012 at 11:04 AM

With the gender-gap disappearing and Palin as inspiration, I have this to say to my fellow women: We DON’T need to step on MEN to empower ourselves. We need only STEP on ONE MAN…. on Nov. 6th!

if anything, this woman, known largely for incompetence and for resigning in disgrace after less than one term as governor,

bluegill on July 28, 2012 at 8:46 AM

Yeah. She’s so incompetent she had a 90% approval rating. Resigned in disgrace? Her family was bankrupted by frivolous ethics complaints that cost her four times what her job paid per year and there was no help for her from the party establishment scum. Do you think they’d allow that to happen to Chris Christie or Bobby Jindal or Rick Scott? No way in hell.

You’re just another hate-filled Mittens fanboi pissed off because she refuses to kiss the ring of your plastic-haired RINO messiah.

of the 5 Gov’s that ran mittens was the worst looking at records, Palin who didn’t run, would have likely been the top rated or at least tied with Huntsman or Johnson depending on the area of examination. What does our party do, the exact opposite of what makes sense. Obama being as bad as he is one would think the clearest opposite to what he is would be the resounding choice. It really baffles the mind what “the experts” seem to think works best.

I think many people tolerate Palin and often agree with her, but they don’t exactly look up to her with great reverance.

The truth is, many conservatives are rather embarrassed that she has received so much attention, and I believe they’d prefer that she was replaced with different, more capable conservative voices.
