Let Sarah Speak! Do Your Part To Help Sarah Palin Get A Speaking Slot At The Republican Convention

Tonight on Greta Van Susteren, Governor Palin very graciously reiterated her interest in hearing other voices speaking at the convention, which she had first mentioned a few days ago in a statement issued to GretaWire:

“…Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today, and in fact the predictions made about the very unqualified and inexperienced Community Organizer’s plans to “fundamentally transform” our country are unfortunately coming true. This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them. As I’ve repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box, and I intend to focus on grassroots efforts to rally Independents and the GOP base to elect Senate and House members so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new President to get our country back on the right path. This is imperative. As President Clinton said in 2008 while candidate Obama and lapdogs in the media were thrashing his wife’s record and reputation, this is “…the biggest fairy tale.” For the sake of America’s solvency and sovereignty we must close this nonsensical book in November…”- Sarah Palin

As Palin supporters, we all feel a collective disappointment that the Governor is not speaking and as fellow C4P Editor Stacy Drake pointed out the other day, we need to keep in mind the Governor’s FOCUS…the objectives she’s clearly laid out and where she, and by extension we, should and will concentrate all of our attention in the days, weeks and months ahead:

She knows that we need to defeat Barack Obama at the ballot box for the sake of the country. She also knows that House and Senate races are key to reforming the legislative branch. So, let there be no doubt that if any “rift” exists, it isn’t coming from Governor Palin’s direction. She is focused on other matters, and she has never had a problem working outside the machine to get things accomplished.

That said, John Hawkins at RightWingNews is promoting a way that we as Palin supporters can show support for the Governor and we of course like any project that promotes the Governor and her agenda:

As you may have heard, Sarah Palin isn’t being given a speaking slot at the Republican National convention. Not only is Sarah Palin the single most prominent woman in the Republican party, a strong advocate of the Tea Party, and an electrifying speaker, she was the also VP candidate in 2008 and was one of the biggest impact players for the Republican Party during the 2010 elections. Not only does Sarah Palin deserve an opportunity to speak, she would be a tremendous asset at the convention.

Towards that end, I’m going to try to collect 10,000 signatures from conservatives who think Sarah Palin should be given a speaking slot. If you’re one of those conservatives, your signature, your link, and any help you can give on Facebook and Twitter would be much appreciated.

There’s no doubt that Governor Palin would be a tremendous asset and we know from history that she’d bring the house down.  To lose that voice at the convention would be a truly wasted opportunity that could have been used to help unify and energize the opposition against Obama for November.

So while we don’t want people to be distracted from supporting the strategies she’s laid out for this election cycle, let’s help John get those 10,000 signatures and show the Governor the kind of positive support she deserves for the amazing work she’s done for the Conservative cause and commonsense Tea Party ideals.

So please GO HERE to sign the petition and let your voice be heard.

Thank you John!

    I signed.  I’ve been wondering if this truly is the last word.  We shall see.

    (edit) Hey! When have I ever been the first one before? Wow! Score! :-D

  • Quang Do

    We don’t get mad. We get EVEN.

    Romney/Ryan and RINOs are a bunch of LOSERs. They just don’t know it yet.

  • friskyness

    I signed!

  • Dan C

    Not a speaking slot… A PRIME TIME speaking slot!

  • blueniner

    How do you sign, I cliked on that sign here, but it wont go anywhere, itmakea click sound and a little yellow star shows up.

  • bamleader

    Done and I added a note to let anyone who cares what I think about the travesty of not letting Sarah speak is.  I also noted that if they didn’t pay attention to the conservative side of the base, there might be consequences some day.  I’m really angry at what I see.  Ryan is being defended ademently by the party.  Where were they when Sarah was being ravished by the left, and the right wings?  They don’t deserve the attention the convention would receive if Sarah were speaking, but we need to defeat Obama and his minions, so I’ll grit my teeth and endure.  Praying daily for strength and patience in this rotten election season.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Thanks, Mary Beth!!

    I signed the petition this morning when IsraeliCojones posted it.

    God bless.

  • Right_Wingnut

    Done. Took 5 seconds.

    There’s still a long way to go. 

  • George

    Done. Onwards and upwards!

  • Lynda

    I tried and they wanted money

    • Mary Beth House

      After you sign it, there’s a note from ipetitions asking for a donation to support the site.

      You do not need to donate in order to sign the petition.

      In fact, that only shows up after your signature has been entered.  :)

  • Christopher Backa

    I’m glad she isnt speaking at RINO CON. She will help get Romney and Ryan elected, and work on the outside getting conservatives into the Senate and House races. Once the election is over. We are still at WAR with the GOP establishment. She wouldnt have to sell her soul to them, and can continue the battle after the election

  • PhilipJames

    I am going to say this…  if Sarah Palin says she is not speaking and wants to hear new voices, then what the F are us idiots out here doing in trying to force Romney to give her a speaking slot?

    This is the dumbest idea that I have heard about lately…  Christie is keynote. Rubio is introducing Romney. Where the frig do you think they would put her? This is stupid, dumb, infantile and on and on and on.

    I will not sign this and I think it is going to prove to others that some people who support Sarah are so fanatical they don’t even listen to her.

    Sarah is doing what she wants to do. Let it go.

    • Mary Beth House

      It’s about showing support for the Governor.  Don’t make something negative out of this…it’s a positive thing and IMHO probably symbolic only.

      • EssexandOrange1773

         I agree. There is no place for her now and they will never add her. But the RNC and the GOP establishment needs to know how we feel about it. If we sit down and be quiet about it, they will think this is all ok and that she has no supporters. It is symbolic, but necessary to let them know "WE ARE HERE!"

        • Mary Beth House

          Yes and coming up with scenarios of what speaking times and such we would support or reject is IMHO meaningless.  She’s not speaking at the convention.  But we can let them know and let her know that we wish things were otherwise and they blew an opportunity.

          • BlueGood

            I posted my 2 cents worth on the link for the petition above.

            was just posted this morning…

            heard about it at Breitbart…

            I feel it will certainly take the Hot Air out of O’Buma’s breath.

            Navy seals and Spec. Ops are NOT going to take his big flapping mouth any more!

            Watch, and spread it FAR and WIDE!

    • white531

      The man has a point.

    • Daisy May

      I personally believed she wanted to speak, Romney wanted no part of her. Not sure why anybody would think otherwise.

    • Bobbi Duvall

      Because Sarah should have been asked in the first place.  She certainly deserves the right to speak far more than does Christie or Rubio because she has done far more for the Republican Party in the last couple of years than they have.  They are NOT the ones who helped the Repubs take back the House in 2010, and they won’t be the ones trying to help get back the Senate in 2012.  I have nothing against either one, but they have not earned the right for a prime time spot at the RNC and Sarah has!!

  • Pete Petretich

    It looks like I can’t sign the petition unless I give them money. What’s up with THAT?

    • Mary Beth House

       No the request for a donation to the site only happens after you submit the signature.  You’re free to donate to them if you want of course but it’s not required for your signature to process.

      • Pete Petretich

        That’s true. I saw my signature registered but I just clicked away from the donation page and gave nothing.

    • Roderic Deane

       You can sign it without giving money. That’s what I did.

  • Guest

    Way Cool !!!…..Done.

  • Roderic Deane

    I think it’s fairly obvious that the Romney/GOPe offered her a crappy spot and she declined. That makes them look magnanimous by the offer, but put her in a position where the only response was ‘NO’. Idiots!

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    how does anyone know she wasn’t " given" a slot ? we don’t, maybe sarah is being smart, she is working on down tickets, telling peeps barry has to go, vote for our candidate. and that is all fine. but she may not have wanted to talk, her choice, heck if i was her i wouldn’t want to either. to me it makes it sound like she was shunned, we do not know that.

    • lanahi

       True, I think it’s fine she doesn’t speak.  But, like they said, it does show them our support of Sarah if we do sign the petition, and that’s important.

  • indemind

    Done Deal … *_*

  • EssexandOrange1773

    Got a call tonight from RNC asking for money. I told the woman on the phone that until Sarah is allowed to speak PRIME TIME any money I would have given to Romney campaign will be going to SarahPAC. I gave her an earful about Sarah not being invited and asked her to send on my comments to the RNC establishment. She said she would.

  • pipam12

    i think we should let Sarah do what Sarah knows best , maybe she didn’t want to be a part of this mess 

    • Mary Beth House

      pipam12…this is more about showing support for the Governor than expecting anything substantive to come of it. :)

      • pipam12

         well that’s OK but I think Sarah knows what she is doing and we should all boycott the dumb show

        • 01_Explorer_01

          I think she knows what she is doing too.  Funny how the same people who wet all over Ian’s bill board "run, sarah run idea" are all over this. 

          • Mary Beth House

            It’s not even remotely the same thing, Explorer, and you know that.

          • John_Frank

            Entirely different.

            This exercise allows people to vent, raise a little hell, and show our support for the Governor.

            At the same time the Governor can remain gracious and continue on.

        • Mary Beth House

          Sure she knows what she’s doing.  None of us suggested otherwise.  Like I said…this is just to show her support.

          • David

            Did she ask you for support. It’s not help if you are distracting people from what she has to say.

  • famouswolf


    I want her associated with Romney’s coming trainwreck as little as possible.

    I agree with a poster below in calling this out as infantile. If she really wants to speak she can take care of it herself…she’s a big girl.

    The best way to support her is to support her decisions, and roll with the punches. She will let her supporters know when an action is needed.

    That said, what makes anyone think the RNC would pay attention to something like this anyway?

    Very rhetorical, that.

    • John_Frank

      Yes and not because we want her associated with the Romney ticket.

      This is called raising "a little hell" and having fun, while we show our support for the Governor.

      Gee, sometimes people take stuff too seriously.

      • famouswolf

        This is the most serious it has been since WW2, pal, and if you have not picked up on that you need to find a hobby for ‘having fun': this is business.

        See HuntingMoose below- ‘Mama grizzly is too big for this event’-exactly so, plus the toxicity level is sky high. No need for this especially under the circumstances.

        • John_Frank

          Relax. Of course I know how important this election is and yes, her not speaking at the Romney love fest will turn out for the best.

          The purpose of the Petition is to show that we support the Governor, as people know perfectly well that there is not a snow ball’s chance in h*ll of the GOP reversing course.

          • famouswolf

            You relax.

            I don’t care for your attitude.

            If we are ever face to face, I hope you mouth off to me. I’d enjoy that, you not so much.


            • John_Frank

              Right. Threatening violence. Interesting approach.

              • famouswolf


                • John_Frank


                  • famouswolf

                    I didn’t have time for a full reply this morning, on my way out the door.

                    It was not meant to be a physical threat, it’s that sometimes you post stuff that makes me think-sometimes even that I am wrong. Which is a good thing, but sometimes I want to YELL at you. That’s a good sign, when I really dislike someone I go all quiet.

                    Actually, yours are amongst the posts I come specifically to read. But I sometimes want you present so I can YELL and let you know how frustrated I am. Like face to face debate.

                    The physical violence I am saving for the enemy, should that become necessary. You just keep on being your exasperating self.
