Skip to comments.Enough of the Palin-bashing!

I have seen a lot threads in here on our friend and heroine, Sarah Palin. While most in here are good, there have been some posts or comments in these posts that have led me to speak out. For all of you so-called conservatives who have nothing to do than bash Sarah Palin, I have only one word to say to you. ENOUGH! I have had it with finding fault with everything she does.
I'll admit, she needs more work, but to sit here and bash her like a member of the Democratic Party or liberal media is reprehensible. To say she is damaged goods because of her being McCain's running mate is reprehensible. She has brought more excitement and energy than any one I can remember except Reagan. She is young, vibrant, conservative, charismatic, and honest. She is beautiful as well, but that's besides the point. Even though we lost, I think bringing Sarah Palin on the national scene was probably one of the few things McCain did right in this campaign. Sarah was the one who brought out crowds to rallies as big as Obama did. That's saying something. The Dems, the media, and yes, even some Republicans, know that she's probably the one person who can unseat Obama in 2012. They know it, which is why they are continually attacking her even though the election is long gone.
I am a strong Sarah supporter, but I will not follow her blindly. If she does something that I don't agree with, I will say it. But she seems to know what she's doing, and I am just a regular person, which she is as well other than governor. I hope she runs for re-election in 2010 and wins, and if God is willing, she decides to run for the Presidency in 2012, I will enthusiastically support her. First, if she is re-elected, she just needs to work for the people of Alaska, which I'll know she'll do. After that, she should run in '12 if she decides to do so. She will have a strong base of support. All of the other candidates who ran in 08 should just step aside and let some new blood run. I do hope to volunteer for her campaign if she decides to run. That has been my dream, to work on a campaign. Hopefully it will be hers.
Again, for those so-called conservatives who bash her, either admit you just don't like Sarah, or get on board. It's not like, "It's her turn." It's our turn, and she can be our leader. She's not perfect, but who is? All I can say is, she will be the right person at the right time. Keep her and her great family in prayer as she makes the tough decisions down the road. God bless her and her family.
I think she’s great. The attack posts are an indication of how great she is. jmho
Hang on my FRiend. She’ll be there.
Sorry, there are no sacred cows.
I doubt I’d like her half so much if she didn’t drive the Leftists mad.
Honestly, I suspect that as president she would be an accomodater like GWB. But after the scars she’s picked up over the last 9 months, maybe not.
I adore Sarah Palin, I admire her greatly and I consider her family. I am sick and tired of the bashing to. After all, what has she ever done to deserve this kind of treatment, some may not agree with her politically(on her views on abortion, etc) that’s fine, but bashing her family, her children, is just wrong. Her son is fighting in Iraq right now protecting OUR freedom. Sarah must be worried sick about her son, yet she has to deal not only with her son in battle, but with idiots posting and saying horrible things about her. Will she run for President, I don’t know, it’s too soon to tell if she will, but you know what, whatever she does I will support, because she is the first REAL politician I have seen in a very long time(Since Reagan, and no I’m not comparing her to Ronald Reagan, Reagan was Reagan and there will always be just ONE Ronald Wilson Reagan) she truly cares about her country, that is why she got into politics to begin with. I think if people step into her shoes for just 5 minutes and deal with all the crap that is thrown at her on a daily basis, perhaps some might reconsider their nastiness towards her and have some respect
Some of those “supposed” FRs might just be lefty posers
or RP lovers.
Then by all means defend her.
Why must you be so intolerant when others don't agree with you? Let's not copy liberal tactics on FR by whining, complaining, vilifying those you oppose and trying to bully people into submission that may not agree with you.
Also, please stop these juvenile vanities.
Defend your "heroine", Sarah Palin on threads you don't agree with. Try being an adult about it ... .
I may not have been clear to some of you, and I apologize. Freepers have the right to criticize Sarah all they want, but to personally attack her and go with a liberal like Romney is beyond the pale. She mixes populism and conservatism very well, and for that, she may get a lot of crossover votes. But for all of those in here, be a conservative first before anything else.
“Sorry, there are no sacred cows.”
Our more childish ones on FR can’t handle that reality.
Needs to said again. Enough of this "you're not a conservative if you don't worship Sarah" BS.
Guess I haven’t noticed them.
Just waiting for Alaska to secede, to move up there!
I’m more conservative than she is. I like her just fine on most positions, but she’s going to have to earn the nomination. No sacred cows and no more coronations.
It's not a coincidence that some of those who are most vocal in their criticism of Palin are Romney supporters.
This is why the Liberals are in control. The Right/ Conservatives/ Republicans love to eat their own.
Your anger is justified, however it is the trolls that cruise this site that attack her.
Some of these trolls are Mitt, McCain, Huckster supporters or just democrat fascists.
Hussein Lovers would find it hard to resist bashing Sarah as she slammed their Fraud stinking Zippy pretty hard and that had to leave a mark on those thin-skinned Communist Idiots.
