Sarah Palin at CPAC: “Mr. President, you won. Accept it.”

posted at 2:31 pm on March 16, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Amidst the inevitable “Why is Sarah Palin invited to CPAC?”-type media buzz, Sen. Ted Cruz — in advance of his keynote speech later this evening — volunteered his own reasons for Palin’s presence on Saturday and made it clear that he has no plans to try and stealthily unhitch his wagon from the anti-establishment mentality that helped blaze his trail into office. Making a surprise celebrity shot just before Sarah Palin took the stage, Cruz reminded the crowd of Sarah Palin’s role in helping our current roster of young, conservative rock-stars get elected in the first place: “The mainstream media is absolutely convinced that women cannot be conservatives. … That’s why Gov. Palin drives the mainstream media bat-crap crazy. It shakes up their entire world view, and you know what, she can pick winners. Sarah Palin jumped in early and supported Rand Paul. She supported Marco Rubio. She supported Tim Scott. She supported Pat Toomey. She supported Nikki Haley. And this last election cycle, there were three Republicans who won new seats, Deb Fischer, Jeff Flake, and myself. She supported all three of us. Let me tell you something: I would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Gov. Sarah Palin. She is fearless, she is principled, she is courageous, and she is a mama grizzly.”

Cue Sarah Palin, who definitely did not shy away from slamming the shady, back-room, crusty old Washington power structure, but also took President Obama to the cleaners on his utter bankruptcy of leadership skills: “We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington. We have reality television. … Well, the election came and went. But, the campaign never stopped. At a time when our country is desperate for leadership, we get instead a permanent campaign. … Leaders reach across political differences, campaigners double down on those differences. … Leaders seek to bring Americans together to confront our challenges, and campaigners, they seek to divide and conquer and orchestrate crisis after crisis after crisis, to exploit. Mr. President, you won. We accept it. Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.” Heh.

Sarah started out slow and the crowd seemed a little unsure. About halfway through Sarah stepped it up and then made a really powerful closing. Still the best speaker in the Republican party.

I am a little surprised and let down with her speech. I had predicted earlier this year that Palin was about ready to unleash herself. I expected her to announce that she had put together a coalition that was going after the crony capitalists and politicians who supported them, but she just gave her speech and left the floor with no specific call to action.

huckleberryfriend on March 16, 2013 at 2:42 PM

So HuffPo says her “background check” comment about Obama was a sop to the Birthers. When she clearly prefaced it by mentioning ideology and associations, not place of birth. Also they highlight her saying, “Obama, you lie”, as if she’s painting him with a broad brush, when she very specifically was referring to his claim to be the most transparent administration ever.

They’re trying their best to paint her as a nut. It’s so dishonest.

If she’d run in 2012, for sure she would have brought the “The Emperor Has No Clothes” theme home, just like she did in her speech. And not in a mean way. In a real, truthful, factual way. And in the debates, to say what she sees, what so many of us see. I’m sorry she didn’t run. But she said she’d have to “prove her record” in Alaska, and apparently wasn’t sure she could do that.

Romney’s staff was derelict in 1001 ways.

Where was the GOP when she was being viscously smeared and defamed? I don’t remember a single Republican office-holder defending her, and those who said anything joined in on the attacks.

true on both counts. but from listening to her over the years she has stepped up her game and is a much better speaker today. Her convention speech was I think he best ever but this one was red meat while delivering a stinging critisism of the PPC and DC. It was a great speech and I think will be one if the if not the only speech remembered at CPAC this year.

1. ”More background checks? Dandy idea Mr. President. Should’ve started with yours.”

2.  On her husband, Todd Palin: “He’s got the rifle, I’ve got the rack.” [Pulls out Big Gulp] 

3. “Mr. President, we admit it. You won. Accept it. Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.”

4. “We can’t just ignore, though, that we just lost a big election. Yeah. Came in second. Out of two … Second position on a dog sled team is where the view never changes and the view ain’t pretty.” 

5. “We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington. We have reality television.”

6. To College Republicans: ”You’ve got to be thinking Sam Adams, not drinking Sam Adams.”

7. “If these experts keep losing elections, keep raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who should run in this party they should buck up and run or stay in the truck. The architects can head on back to the Lone Star State and put their name on the ballot.” [Clearly this is a reference to Karl Rove]

8. ”The next election is 20 months away. Now is the time to furlough the consultants, and tune out the pollsters, send the focus groups home and toss the political scripts. Because if we truly know what we believe, we don’t need professionals to tell us.”

9. To Washington consultants: ”Get over yourself. It’s not about you.” 

10. “Barack Obama promised the most transparent administration ever. Barack Obama — you lie!”

Something must be clarified. It’s big.

“You won, accept it….lead, do something”.

One should never assume that Obama doesn’t know or accepts that he won, or that he doesn’t know that he’s supposed to lead.

His intentions and ‘leadership’ are in a different direction. The erroneous premise is that he, like all the other US presidents, want the best for his land, her people.

No, Obama is a clinically NPD’d fellow who only knows his and his own power and well-being. He is also a Utopian sizi-commie idealist who favors his muzzie brothers.

To his premise/ideals he is very good and successful.

Incl. Sarah Palin, open your eyes. He is a very successful man. His plan proceeds apace. It’s just contrarian to your plan, the land’s once glorious freedom and power, exceptionalism and etc.

He is the biggest divider in the history of the land. After him race-relations will be set back by at least 30 years.

A bigger charlatan, a Machiavellian, Goebbelian, Orwellian, Muenchhausean Pinocchio the land never had, and with any luck never will repeat.

The peopel, including those of you who stayed home or voted for Ron Paul, brung/kept him. YOU deserve him in full.

I hoping Palin can do another 2010 in 2014. then we can talk about 2016. With Mitt out of the picture many hopefuls in 2014 will be seeking leverage in their races. Mitt supplied a lot of Mitt to win their favors. Palin can suplly them with credibility. Many people will be seeking Palin’s endorsement in 2014 if they are smart there really isn’t another leading voice in the GOPe that hopefuls can rally too. Rove is trying to be that person but I think once candidates look at wins/loses they will pick Palin’s endorsement over Rove’s.

I’m going to take this opportunity to once again plug Phyllis Shjlafly CPAC 2013 speech. She is, apparently a huge fan of Sarah Palin.

29Victor on March 16, 2013 at 3:03 PM

She was sensational–brought the house down.

predator on March 16, 2013 at 2:35 PM

So what?

When push comes to shove, not enough Conservatives would support her for higher office. They can only envision a Reaganesque manly man representing them I guess.

Governor Palin has more balls than all of these squishes that the bigmouths in the Conservative movement support…you know, the ones that sell us out again and again, but are smart enough to throw us a bone every once in a while.

Dr. ZhivBlago on March 16, 2013 at 3:04 PM

Didn’t know (thank you stupid media), as per Sen. Ted Cruz into, that if it wasn’t for Sarah he would not be senator today and that she supported Cruz, Sen. Deb Fischer and Sen jeff Flake.

Rove & the bush mafia what was your batting average!

Danielvito on March 16, 2013 at 3:04 PM

The peopel, including those of you who stayed home or voted for Ron Paul, brung/kept him. YOU deserve him in full.

Schadenfreude on March 16, 2013 at 2:55 PM

Stop blaming other people and put it where it belings: on the candidate and the four-year campaign to keep anybody else from getting close enough to take him out. We voted for your craptastic candidate. He lost. I’m really tired of the constant blame on the tea party for Romney’s loss. He wasn’t our candidate, yet we voted for him in higher numbers than we voted for McCain. There is absolutely no evidence in the election returns that the loss was our fault.

Classic Palin speech – excellent.

Thank you for the sanity. ;)

Paul will run against her in 2016 if she goes that route. Cruz might back her.

alwaysfiredup on March 16, 2013 at 3:01 PM

Paul will run a primary against her but he will back her in the general. Paul isn’t stupid. Mitt and company however would of done what Rove did to COD on the day she won the primary. Now if they try that she has many people in positions who knowing where their bread is buttered will rise to defend her in the general and the primary won’t be her against the world either. I’m not sure she even wants to run at this point. But she is bettered positioned to run in 2016. I think2012 would have been a good test run. like reagan’s 1976 run

Also they highlight her saying, “Obama, you lie”, as if she’s painting him with a broad brush, when she very specifically was referring to his claim to be the most transparent administration ever.

Paul-Cincy on March 16, 2013 at 2:42 PM

Thought it an homage to Joe Wilson, myself.

How insulting of you. I get her better than you’ll ever imagine.

She and you pray that he stops doing anything. Actually I pray that Boehner grows a pair and uses the power of the purse, and his 1/3rd constitutional power and stops him, alas.

I know mockery and snark. I live my nom, on best days. Then I take off my hat, occasionally, and just type regular folks’ stuff.

Schadenfreude on March 16, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Whenever I see Palin speak, I get a little sad.

What could have been.

Danielvito on March 16, 2013 at 3:04 PM

Two terms for Obama. So far.

Kent18 on March 16, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Too bad she couldn’t have supported our candidate for President, Mitt Romney.

Mr. President, you won, indeed.

Mr. Arkadin on March 16, 2013 at 2:39 PM

It could be said that too bad Mitt Romney didn’t support Sarah Palin. But that’s what happens when Romney listened to the Establishment Republicans, Karl Rove and hires the former McCain Advisors. ALL LOSERS!!

bluefox on March 16, 2013 at 3:07 PM

I’ll prolly get in trouble for this; but another bumper sticker:

Sarah Palin, the Bush With Balls.

What?

WHAT?

OhEssYouCowboys on March 16, 2013 at 3:08 PM

Danielvito on March 16, 2013 at 3:04 PM

When I heard Cruz thank Sarah for helping him get elected, I wondered why he didn’t thank the vast number of us in TX who funded and voted for him also? Not to be picky, but we did help and Cruz has done what he said he would do if we voted for him!

“Background checks, dandy idea Mr. President….should have started with yours!”

“Step away from the teleprompter and do your job.”

To college republicans in the audience: “You gotta be THINKIN Sam Adams, not drinkin Sam Adams.”

“Come on Bloomberg isn’t around, our Big Gulp is safe.”

“If you’re not on the campaign donor list, you’re on the menu”.

To D.C. “Get over yourselves, it’s not about you.”

….and she walks off with the “Big Gulp” in her hand. Well played.

All great sound bytes but, if Governor Palin really believed it was as bad as she said…….why didn’t she run in 2012?

PappyD61 on March 16, 2013 at 3:08 PM

Who cares what this woman has to say?

d1carter on March 16, 2013 at 3:08 PM

Going for the soda after the “rack” joke is why she will never go away. That Breitbart flavor of irreverence. It’s our only shot at beating these creeps.

MadisonConservative on March 16, 2013 at 2:55 PM

When she said, “I’ve got the rack, Todd’s got the rifle”, the audience tittered and smiled and shook their heads and laughed despite themselves, at the sexual metaphor. It was vintage Sarah, with playful double meanings of words. Sometimes she’s a little naughty.

Learn to express your own opinion independently. It takes courage. A bad attitude and rudeness will not suffice as a substitute.

HA is proof that Romney was NOT “my candidate”. Just ask Buy Danish and all the other infuriating Romneybots.

Those who backed your comment are just as derelict and Liars.

The primaries, corrupt as they were, still occurred. Did you want me and others to vote for Sarah Palin.

How stupid are you people?

All who brung/kept Obama, may he destroy YOU.

I despise Romney and his team, for their dereliction, when a chair could have beaten Obama. On the other hand I don’t care if it burns, so the frogs learn. I hope it doesn’t burn to the point where it’s not recoverable, for the kids and grandkids.

I’m not your enemy. You just can never handle anything other than “Sarah is great”. I told all of you before – if she runs, I’ll vote for her. Good luck with that.

Schadenfreude on March 16, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Again: No, I don’t. I don’t bother to pray. I’t unecessary. He is a weak, weak man, propped up by an ever-smaller circle of sycophants. His most powerful moment was the night of his re-election, and his support is cratering. I pray about congress, and I pray about these crazy unelected bureaucrats he hires. I don’t bother with Obama, I have nothing but disdain for the man.
