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.

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

Lol! “Pissant” was not directed at you, i88schwartz. It was directed at pissant, who chose that as a moniker.

A video of the entire speech has just been posted on FR by Palin TV for those of us (like me) who didn't catch it live.

I’m pretty relieved that this wasn’t accurate.

"recognize the foundation that America is the idea of being"?

She got the message across and the people loved it. They understood what she said. Phooey on you for nitpicking.

When we look back on it 20 years from now, the 2008 election may stand out as what saved the country.

Hopefully. The Good Lord certainly has a way of turning darkness to light.
But for now - 2008 was a dark day in America's history (where its people engaged in gross idolatry) - and we are reaping the effects of a Nation that has forgotten God.

I agree with you about Mrs. Palin. A remarkable leader. I know satanic forces will always be attacking her (people who attack her probably don't even know why they are driven to their hatred...). Prayers for her protection and future.

I believe it may need a hyphen between the first & second word... otherwise, works for me. But I prefer to “ignoranus”.

WOW! <----The audience's response to Sarah's inspirational and terrific speech tonight. Interesting to note that the word is a palindrome.

I'm not sure how you survive the agita you must experience every day from all that bitterness, pissant.

I live in Oakland County, but grew up in Macomb. Reagan took Macomb and Palin can too.

even if she did...WHO CARES???!!

I think that we found out what happens when we vote as a country for someone who is a “perfect” public speaker.

what she’s speaking about is much more important than her grammar as far as i’m concerned.

Yes she can. MI - 1 from what I can see is that kind of district. She is picking it off early so to speak.

Well this is not quite true. We need to apologize for all the socialists, and Rino’s we have put into office. We need to apologize for all the damage the bankers have done to the financial system with the help of those socialists, and Rino’s .

You come across as being very bitter, nevertheless. By the way, how's your cult doing?

Only to those worshiping at the Palin altar. To the rest of FR, I’m seen as my normal, chipper self. I remember the Fredheads trying to tell me how bitter I was for exposing his record. But I did it with a smile while they seethed in anger. And so it goes....again

Not totally.

To: pissant
Advise you to back off Palin and back off about the womens’ right to vote. Either back off or I give the green light to the mods to zot your account on the next offense. I’m the last defender you have on FR and you’re beginning to piss me off too.

Dude, I corrected your false and self serving post, I also think that you have been suspended for your unreasonable, but relentlessly attention seeking Palin attacks, although I get you mixed up with BobJ at times, so I don’t remember for sure if you received that suspension.

Attention seeking trolling is not brutal honesty, it is only attention seeking trolling.

Didn't you agree to stop your anti-Palin crap until after November?

Did I miss the date today or something?

Cmon man, there are better things to do right now. This thread is about one of her speeches to get rid of the Obamacrat agenda and you piss it all up again.

If he's still around on January 20, 2013, we'll have to put up with his snarling posts during Sarah's inauguration. Sheeesh...

His obsession was supposed to take a break according to his own words, but he either forgot (in which case he might be simply light in the loafers), or he's not to be trusted with his word.

I guess we'll have to wait and see if he fesses up to forgetting, or whether we will need to call him on his incapacity to tell the truth.

He's made similar promises before, and has broken them all in short order. I've now come to expect that of him.

Obozo isn’t going away for over two years.

Maybe he isn't, and maybe he is.

The Punk is unraveling before our very eyes. It's becoming increasingly clear that he doesn't have the intestinal fortitude for the office, and is grossly ill-equipped to handle the job.

Like many, I'm beginning to think that he won't make it to the finish line.

Sometimes you just have to call a Pissant, a pissant.

I must admit a certain affinity for Pissant’s postings. It must be because my High School's Mascot was the “Fighting Falcon”. Who would have thought that Mascot would have its own Political Party?

I like pissant on most topics. He just goes kind of nuts with regard to Palin. Sort of like the eccentric, avuncular presence, who occasionally goes on a little toot with the rye. Then we all pretend we didn’t notice. That is how we handle it down here anyway, or used to.

And he does have his own party, which is kind of cool. Granted, that might not be as cool as a motorcycle, but at least the parts are not strung out in the garage either.
