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.
Enough with the Romney-bashing!
While I'm not at all committed to Palin as frontrunner in 2012, a lot of folks here are pretty sick of the constant and gratuitous Palin-bashing in the press, and when we get to see even more of it here, it's particularly galling. Why do we see 5X as much criticism of Palin's family here as we see of Biden's family??? Especially when Biden's has so much more "material?"
“Hey Sarah! Hold your head high, and you go, girl! And God be with you.” is all I’ve got to say. There are a few on FR who are in league with the RINOs.
She knows she’s going to have to earn it. She’s not that stupid.
check your FR mail for one by a child on this thread
Fail. You lose. Grow some balls or study up on Winston Churchill. Don't give the idiots an inch, not a hair!
I thought you were pretty darn clear.
While Sarah governs, Barry's spending most of his time reading a Teleprompter.
If you are for:
Ruby/Arleen - 2012 why not become a democrat and vote for Bozo again?
You’d be surprised. We had a coronation here last time for Fred.
Got it, and yes I often forget about that crowd until they start screaming about religious bigotry.
Here is one from today by a childlike basher
I wont be voting for Palin or McPain.
Jindal or Mitt have my vote.
I am sick and tired of gender politics or wntitlement minded people who think they should be POTUS.
Palin, go away! Take your populist ideology and unwed mother with you. We dont want Palin family values or McPain RHINO values. We need RESPONSIBLE people who LIVE conservative values - financially and socially.
I doubt you are more conservative then Palin if you support Rudy and Arlen in 2012
I know it’s early and it’s only 2 months into Obama’s Presidency, but I really felt the need to vent after all of this beating she’s taken, esp. from those who claim to be conservatives. Her belief system is closer to mine than anyone else.
Isn’t he now? Oh wait, that’s the other arizona dingbat, Napolitano. Hard to tell them apart
Almost like.. a messiah?
Didn't we just have a problem with that same thing?
Rudy and Arlen would be REAL leaders!
