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!
