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.

I would guess that is what it was for. But after reading a couple of the questions that were asked I wonder if they were stated in such a way to determine results wanted? One can design any poll to obtain the results you want by the questions and in the way they are asked; or restricted.

Look at how many years they have been doing these CPAC polls and only 2 were elected President. Either the people answering the questions were wrong, or the questions were geared for a particular result.

Oh boy, now that Palin spent 4 years convincing her mouth breathing cult that she was their messiah and that they needed to throw their money at Sarahpac, and then followed that up by opting out of the entire 2012 primary process and disappearing the last 12 months, I guess its time to start the fleecetrain all over again. Clearly her convenient idiot marks haven’t wisened up over the last time she strung them along and took their money for her personal gain.

Maybe Merkins in 2016 will finally be smartened up and ready for a half-term bible-thumping dominionist quitter from a total backwater. Cuz thats what REAL Merkins really want. And these REAL Merkins are like, 80% of the US population, or something.

I know you were making a joke but I think there is some truth in your comment. I’ve heaqrd many people refer to Washington DC as Hollywood for the ugly people. And in my mind at least some of the ugliest people both insideand outside reside in D.C and in some measure I think this fact causes some maybe many in DC to hate Palin. Afterall if you spent your life being the “nerd” (think Rove) the kid who was laughed at in high school by the cool and beatiful and you finally “made it” to an inner circle and are “cool” within this big powerful click why would you be happy to have a person like Palin who radiates beauty and happiness both on the inside and outside enter that inner circle/click and take the spotlight from you?

thanks to whoever posted the transcript of the speech. I still can’t understand what in the speech the Palinhaters who say they are conservative could find wrong with that speech. And why when someone like Palin gives a speech like this that is heard far and wide and can make normal people who don’t turn into politics sit up and listen to the conservative message why that is a bad thing.

Palin’s speech probably got more coverage/ and listens than the avg CPAC speech. So in the grand scheme of things why is that a negative for conservatism?

Unless of coourse your goal is to not promote conservatism that I could see why people would what her to shut up and sit down. So I can see why liberals hate her and why liberal GOPe wish her gone but there is no logic whatsoever for someone that says they are conservative to say that want Palin off the stage. None.

You claim to like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio etc etc. yet you don’t like Palin who clearly identified and supported these individuals. Why can’t you at least give her credit for supporting people that you admire? Your inability to do even that demonstrates your bat crap craziness hatred of Palin that goes way past her “appealling to the worst elements of OUR party”. Your hatred makes no sense and when something doesn’t make sense, it isn’t true. That is why I am sure your spending so much time trying to get many of us to see he “light” is BAT CRAP.

To the ones of you who have Sarah living rent free in that hollow space between your ears. Let me straighten you out about something. Much of your negative position on Sarah seems to hinge on the fact that many supporters would like her to run for high office. While this is true amongst some, not so with others. Now here is a clue for you all once again. Cause you are obviously very challenged on the up take side of thinking. Many of us want her to do what she wants to do and are very pleased with what she is doing to help build a stronger Conservative movement. She does more for Conservatism in one day than you all combined will do in a lifetime. Now if you still don’t get it. There is indeed no hope to have her move out of that rent free space between your ears. You folks are truly pathetic. Get over her, for your own mental healths sake. She’s no good for you. Just scroll right on by her threads. You can’t. You are sick.

Bmore on March 18, 2013 at 10:51 AM

I just think she is an unelectable goofball who feeds off of and promotes division within conservative ranks.

It is her idiot cultist worshipers that I can’t stand.

Funny you seem awfully obseesed with SARAH, not her followers….

I like the “whomever writes her Facebook posts” line…after all she’s such a goofball SHE couldn’t have written them….

I realize that for you to acknoweldge that she does write them would be impossible, because to do so would undermine the basis for your phobia concerning Palin….

Yeap. But I think many understand by her doing good things for conservatism it means her star rises. So they would rather tear her up her positions up no matter the cost to conservatism in the long run. it is a sickness. Like those “conservatives” who attack Rush or Rand Paul or Ted Cruz all are doing good things and have done good things for conservatism. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with some of thier positions but the palinhaters simply don’t want her anywhere near the seats of power.

Personally I think its a learned response and they have been conditioned by the media much like pavolo’s dog

ROFL… So she is a great speaker, she is a great kingmaker, she says all the things that conservatives love, she gets the message oout and get the voters to the polls. She does everything a normal politican does but better yet for some stupid reason you and others would rather support bland boring people who lose elections instead of a winner.

Got it makes loads of sense. No wonder that call the GOPe the stupid party.

Rove’s response was perfect. Paris Palin tried to smear him in her little speech, then he responded with a comeback that struck the bullseye and reminded everyone what a not-ready-for-primetime quitter Sarah Palin is.

If unseen’s poll …..

NRO POLL
In the fight between Karl Rove and Sarah Palin, whom do you support?
Rove 18 %
Palin 82 %
4,064 votes

….. doesn’t hold credibility with you, why don’t you commission your own?

Who the hell does Palin think she is? I am glad that Rove is going to help us prevent future Akins and O’Donnells and Mourdocks.

She knows that she is one PISSED-OFF American Conservative, who used to believe the Republican Party stood for her MORALS.

In other words, she’s like a MAJORITY of us here.

conducted the Sequestration (total Obama wipeout)

Oh no – she had absolutely nothing to do with the sequestration.
Nothing at all…in any way whatsoever.
She’s actually not really involved in anything at all.
You know that, right?
But good show, man…good show.
(And after she ‘kicked Azz’…what exactly was she ‘taking names’ for? You mean for Facebook friends? You’re already in…right?)

You aqre going to argue that Mitt and McCain wasn’t bland and boring? ROFL…this I got to hear…

How about TPaw or Newt. they reallyy electrified that stage and motivated the voters to the polls. Obama now he was exciting for many in 2008 and guess what he won. 2012 was more a battle on who could bore us to death and not vote for that guy.

there are not many politicans on the stage today who isn’t boring and bland. Reagan wasn’t boring Bush the first and Bush the second bored people to tears. Dole was boring Clinton at least got people interested and guess what he won too.

So name some politicans who aren’t boring and bland. It’s the nature of the gig to not offend anyone you have to be as bland and boring as possible.

So you go with your boring bland loser polticans, I’ll continue to support a person who fires up the crowd gets people talking and motivates the mind.

You know in history what potential candidate most mimics the Republican’s Sarah Palin? The Democrat’s Ted Kennedy. Especially in the Carter primary. There were Democrats who couldn’t stand Jimmy and Teddy stood for everything pure that they believed in. But he couldn’t be nominated and those people burned at the notion that he ultimately could never ever be elected on a national scale.

Marcus on March 18, 2013 at 11:06 AM

Dude why the extreme position every time you speak. Why? Of course Sarah isn’t the only one. She is just one. She does a great job for Conservatism. Why can’t you just acknowledge that and move on? What is it about her that sticks in your crawl so? Do yourself a favor and get over it. She is a great asset to Conservative politics. Her support and picks of potential candidates has been far superior to anyone else in the arena. Just drop it. Its tedious.

idesign on March 18, 2013 at 11:10 AM

first rule in politics if you want people to listen to you you have to catch their interest. with all the low information voters out there and the wealth of media outlets today this isn’t like IKe’s time when he wanted to give a speech every media outlet covered it. Today if the POTUS is on most people turn the channel. Only a small subset of the population even listens to these windbags which the elite know and use to their advantage to steal our money and wealth while the rest of the country watches the NFL.

If you want an active involved electorate who watches the thieves in DC you have to give them a person they want to watch and listen too.

or you have to sepnd 100′s of millions on ads to get 1/10th of your message across.

Marcus on March 18, 2013 at 11:08 AM

those people? they are new faces none of them have shown they have the ability to draw the people we need to win. Rubio is a good speaker. He hasn’t shown he can motivate people to the polls. Rand has shown he can filibuster and get people thinking about things they weren’t before. He shows promise. Susanna and ted? Too new for any type of comment. Ted Cruz shows promise. Yet his speech at CPAC while good didn’t eletrify the masses. I’m sure he can improved but some peopel are just not natural speakers. If you could somehow mash Rubio Cruz and rand together into one person I think you would have a great candidate a smart great speaker who could make people think. Sadly they aren’t all three.

And as far as looking in the past those that don’t understand history are doomed to repeat it. You want bland boring politicans you get loss after loss.

good points. Palin isn’t the only one. There are some people that show promise like Walker, Rand, cruz others. But she is a huge asset to conservatism. her record matches her words unlike say a rubio. to win 2014 we need all our assets and we need people out there leading. Palin is a leader. Whatever people Marcus wants to say and for that I’m thankful she is back on the political scene esp after that horror show know as Mitt Romney campaign.
