Palin: "We Are An Exceptional Country And That Is Nothing To Apologize For"
RealClearPolitics ^ | October 16, 2010 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 10/16/2010 5:09:29 PM PDT by i88schwartz

"We asked for leaders who will recognize our foundation that America is the idea of being the most generous country on earth. The most prosperous, the most safest county. United under God, we are an exceptional country and that is nothing to apology for. Our America, we do not seek its fundamental transformation. We see it's restoration all that is good and strong and free in America there is no alternative and it's nothing to apologize for. We've got a president today who's getting pretty good at apologizing," Sarah Palin said in Anaheim, California on Saturday.

Something had to have gotten lost in the translation here.

She probably didn’t say most safest county.

Pissant why don’t you move to Africa or Asia and find out how “safe” the rest of the world is when they aren’t allowed 2nd Amendment rights.

People don’t realize the part about the 2nd Amendment which is more important than anything is not the physical right to bear arms but the threat of it being the case if you are a robber, home invader, rapist or violent criminal.

In societies where citizens do NOT have the right to bear arms the criminals know their prey is defenseless and thus become emboldened to mug, steal, rape and kill if they have to without any pushback from the citizen.

If you follow the link, there is a video of this portion of the speech. Palin, in fact, said “the safest country.”

It never takes long for the FR lunatic fringe to arrive on a Palin thread.

What many folks on our side don’t want to admit is that Palin has gotten better in her modulation, pacing, diction and is even more eloquent than she was in 2008. It’s called development.

The best comparison I can think of is when Tom Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in 2001 and took the Pats to the SB he was pretty good even then but in 2003 and 2004 he had elevated his game and he became even better and almost unstoppable.

Talent wins a lot but when immense talent is developed over time and matures it becomes almost invincible. With Sarah Palin you are seeing someone in full flower and this is scary, but she will even get better over the next two years. And to think she is only 46 right now.

He has one... trolling around for things he can post that cast Palin in an unfavorable light, then posting them here, and watching people get their knickers in a knot over it, and giving him hell about it...

How ‘bout we all just ignore the pissant that is pissant.

I was a little irritated when Palin supported McCain (although I understood why), but now is the time to get behind this lady.

The Left has slung every type of arrow at her, and she’s still standing, stronger than ever! How would any of us fair having to endure what she and her family did?

There’s a reason the Left fears the likes of Palin, O’Donnell, Angle, and Miller; They know their message resinates with the people!

Question: Is the Left going after Romney, Huckabee, or Pawlenty? NO! Now ask yourself why!

My apologies ... I a transcript that is automatic (read: a computer that gives out what it hears phonetically).

I have personally gone over the transcript and corrected it with what she really said.

Please don’t call me a pissant. we’re not liberals here — no name calling.

Watch the speech if you can....those words are verbatim from the writer not Sarah, She doesn’t say “that America is the idea of being the most generous country on earth.” in that way

But my question to all is why do so many even on FR (and I don’t mean you in this case indy) but in general go over every line or nuance for errors or mistakes from Sarah Palin but give everybody else a break?

I have always looked at McCain as Palin’s mulligan. Everyone deserves one mulligan in life.

If Palin had gone off the reservation and endorsed more RINO’s I would have agreed with you but deep down I knew this would be the only time that she “strayed” and that was why I was willing to overlook the endorsement of McCain. I hope many more Freepers see that Palin now is really a Reagan conservative and as you say begin to back her 100%.

As I have often said in this election cycle, in 2008 there was no conservative running and the primary voters had a right to bitch about that but in 2012 if Palin runs they will have no excuse if a RINO prevails. You are not about to see any other legitimate conservative candidate put himself or herself forward but Palin. Get used to it if you are a conservative, especially a Reagan conservative. It’s either Palin or Romney. Take your pick.

SARAH was fantastic! She’s a true patriot and REALLY knows how to express herself! Crowd was wild for her...as usual. Steele did a great job as well and we just have to get VAN TRAN elected! Oh, Breitbart was a riot! Calling the goons Nancy Reid and really made it work for himself throughout. Work hard and Pray for our Country!

For the same reason a gross and patently unfair double standard is always deployed, to further an agenda, whether hidden or overt.

Many of the anti-Palin storm troopers, dripping with their faux concern over her “qualifications”, “intelligence” and “experience” are transparently substandard thespian/propagandists.

I kind of figured something was wrong with the transcript.

I did disagree with her on one point. A good old election is by far not going to be a fix for America’s problems.

Obozo isn’t going away for over two years. He has messed up so much in that two years that it will take decades to return from the damage.

I would expect Obozo to rule by executive order and challenge a GOP Congress to do something about it.

If we are lucky enough to regain the WH in 2012, there is going to be some misery coming for many who aren’t going to go quietly into the night.

Rough times ahead.

This is from cnn - only a partial.

Too bad it cuts out.

It odes however, capture her stinging remark at the lamstream:

“to the press, Yes, I will invoke Reagan’s name today, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again,”

“but I will not invoke, Mao’s Alinsky etc.”

GO SARAH!

“She probably didn’t say most safest county.”

She did not. The text is horribly botched and is a false report. The statement that appears in written pidgin is powerfully delivered at 3:30 - 3:60 of the video.

Just another sly rodent bite from the also-rans.

When we look back on it 20 years from now, the 2008 election may stand out as what saved the country. No one could have done more to energize conservatives than Obama.

Whether she ever becomes President or not, Sarah Palin should be remembered as the one who led the fight and gave us hope while people like Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Mitch McConnell ran for cover.

Sarah Palin is a truly amazing woman.

DeMint has made himself quite visible, with his stalwart conservative courage lately. I thought he was entering the glide path for a presidential run. I love Sarah Palin, but I don’t like the idea of her having to carry the conservative battle standard alone.

She is running, here is how I know...

Sarah Palin endorsed Dan Benishek in Michigan's First Congressional District, I asked myself Why?

The DNC has stopped all monies to the Stupak replacement, they know it is lost. So why would she endorse him? Seems a little gratuitous doesn't it? I mean why get aboard a guy that will win it screams of Romney-me-too-ism...

Then it hit me....

She is brilliant. She is did this to get reciprocal support of outlying districts that can swing a state her way. She is pre-planning for Electoral Victory. She is moves ahead and no one sees it, Three Dimensional Chess in fact. She going after the Reagan Democrat vote to negate Macomb, Wayne and Washtenaw ( and one or two others ) that swing MI into the Dem camp and secure an electoral win in MI. If She runs with a Michigan native or resident I think by extension she gets Ohio and Indiana, if so it is game over for whomever she runs against, especially OBozo...

Tell me where I am wrong here...
