Mr. L: Sarah Palin Rocks CPAC 2013

Via Mr. L at Mr. L’s Tavern:

For a second year in a row, Sarah Palin ROCKS the stage of CPAC 2013.  The packed house and approximately seven standing ovations that she received explains to those riding the short bus in the mass media why she got to speak at the annual conservative conference.  Palin’s speech was a brilliant mix between the humorous and the serious.  She brought the house down by mocking Nanny NYC Mayor Bloomberg by sipping a Big Gulp.  She compared Pres. Obama to Bernie Madoff.  She called out the crony capitalists, GOP establishment consultants and declared, "We are not here to rebrand a party. We are here to rebuild a country."  Palin tells those to encourage other’s with common sense conservative principles to serve the nation. The question for Palinistas is, how do we encourage and convince Palin to run for national office?  Also discussed, is how Palin was mocked in 2009 for calling out Obama’s impotence on missile defense in Alaska and the actions that the administration taking that prove she was right.

Watch Mr. L’s video below:

    Try as they might, the GOPe and the MSM will never be able to destroy Sarah. Instinctively, people who love this country, know that Sarah represents all that the U.S. is and was meant to be. Once they have heard her speak and have listened closely to what she says, they know and understand that Sarah Palin is a true patriot who shares their love of country.

    Again, Sarah’s greatest traits of honesty and sincerity, brought down the house at CPAC. In order for humor to be effective, there has to be the element of truth delivered with that humor and Sarah’s speech was packed with truth.

    The old bulls in the GOPe leadership do not need rebranding, they need to be put out to pasture permanently, just like the GOP itself. Sarah is wasting her time trying to rebuild on a party that has lost it’s sense of values and purpose. She needs to get busy building a new party, that values our conservative views, believes in our Constitution and Bill of Rights and in representative government.

      Build a new Party……that is what leaders do. Build it from the bottom up with a strong foundation. Let the GOPe follow because they have no choice!

        The gop will essentially vaporize.

    • DocBarry1

      The problem is that not enough people listen to her speeches

      This is another reason why she must run in 2016 so she can show how to run a campaign with her people in her way to show how to run a campaign that makes people proud of politics again

      sarah palin true patriot, karl rove true piss ant.

  • SteveBayrd

    Sarah never disappoints. The only public figure since Reagan that I truly trust. But the same cannot be said of CPAC insiders. The CPAC "straw-poll" is the blatant proof of manipulation. The person sparking the most excitement gets the least percentage? Dems and the GOPe are not the only entities lacking the cleansing freshness of sunshine.

    • DocBarry1

      Absolutely, I wish someone would explain what really goes on at 4he straw poll e.g. are individuals paying for votes and or bringing in people to vote

    • Budvarakbar

      There may be some element of setup in the CPAC by the gopE — in the "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" frame of things. Sure seemed to be a lot of RINO representation there. Holding it right next to or in DC puts a certain stain and unpleasant smell on it too.

  • PAWatcher

    Sarah not only rocked CPAC, it’s the beginning of rocking politics as usual! Status quo goes when fighting for US. I’m hearing the beat of Sarah’s drum loud and clear.
    Sarah’s speeches will be read by generations to come, and they will be relevent as long as We have our Republic.

    Not surprisingly. Mr L supplies a superb recap of the Sarah Palin speech, as well as the tangential issues of the day.

    I love how he focuses on a couple of items aside from the excellence of her speech.

    First of all, Ted Cruz did a great service for her by introducing her, and reminding everyone of the Washington DC dirty little secret. Which is that MOST of those who have been making a difference in DC since 2010 owe their seats in part to Sarah Palin.

    Ted Cruz was big enough to be gracious and thank her, and fearless enough to defy the powers in DC who promise those who mock her publicly favorable treatment in exchange.

    Most have unfortunately "Taken the Deal" and treated her like crap to please the "Cool kids". Bad idea, because the "Cool-kids" will use you, but will still hate you.

    Secondly, he points out that little detail about West Coast Missile Defense. Now how in the world could silly Sarah Palin have stumbled upon that as a relevant point back in 2009 when we all know that she spent all her time in the tanning booth or shooting wolves from planes for kicks?

    It’s things like these that keep DC on edge about her, because she’s unpredictable, and she hasn’t been bought off so no one "Owns" her aside from her Creator.

    How do we convince her is the top question, thanks for the post

    • joseph agibinik

      We show her in 2014 that we elect like minded people. We, like her, FIGHT against the democrates, the rino republicans and the lame stream media! We the People stand for a just cause…..The United States of America! We the People, UNITE together to show that We the People are not sheeple. How did the GOPe get McCain elected? How did the GOPe get Romney elected? It is time for YOU and I to stand! YOU have to step away from the choir and reach out to those who are not in the choir. We the People. I am doing what I can to help Sarah. I am doing what I can to help the United States of America. Is it enough? I do not know…..but I am trying. And I will keep trying. Will you?

  • Sue Lynn

    Amen Mrl Tavern!!! You Rock!! Lady Liberty Delivered Super Big Gulp Style!!!! God bless Sarah Palin as she Trends #1 World Wide!!!!

  • blueniner

    As always, Mr.Ls excellent analysis, he always reads Sarah Palin well. Mr. Ls take on the fringe PDSers is always spot on.

    I have no doubt that after the 2014 elections, which Karl Rove and the GOPe seem intent on sabotaging, just to spite the Tea Party, there will be plenty of us placing tremendous pressure on Sarah to run in 2016.

    The question is whether Sarah will answer the call. I think the decision boils down to whether her family is ready to handle the tsunami of negative attacks from the GOPe, the LSM, and the Left. Sarah’s family, including Trig, would be viciously and mercilessly attacked, every day and night, if Sarah runs. She knows this better than most. However, Sarah’s children will be older and perhaps the family will be more prepared to handle the attacks than they were in 2012. Who knows?

    I have no doubt that if Sarah does run, she will win in a landslide.

    • KSEMBB1

      The good thing is, if Sarah runs, the LSM’s attacks will mostly be repeats – heard that already! – boring! She is the most vetted leader today (one of the reasons I think they don’t want her to run – they’ve already shot their wad on her), and there won’t be much, if anything, left to trash her with. Which means that all of Sarah’s supporters can ridicule the LSM as being "unimaginative reporters" serving up old "news."

    Mr. L, always SPOT ON! I love to listen to his posts, his passion and knowledge with being able to draw all the facts and prove it is fantastic. I believe he is a school teacher & the time he puts in on the side to but these post together is greatly appreciated. I have followed him for several years, and if you go to YouTube, you should keep him as one you follow, you’ll enjoy listen to all his posts.
    I have a friend in NJ I went to roomed with in college who sounds just like him when he gets fired-up, not quite as smart or well informed.

    Mr. L, as usual an outstanding summary.

    I would like to add that no one in the media is going to bring up that Sarah was responding directly to Jeb Bush’s comments just the night before at the Reagan Dinner at CPAC. Jeb who just put out a new book to show the Republicans the path to the Immigration issue, reversed course (180 degrees) during his roll of the book stating "the book was written last year, and the immigration debate has since changed."

    Bush was heard offering the following advice at the dinner:

    “All too often we’re associated with being ‘anti’ everything,” “Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted and unwelcome in our party.” (Is this not accepting the LEFT’s Mantra?)

    “It is not a validation of our conservative principles if we can only point to the increasingly rare individual who overcomes adversity and succeeds in America,” he told the gathering in a Friday dinner speech. “Here’s reality: if you’re fortunate enough to count yourself among the privileged, much of the rest of the nation is drowning.”

    To which Sarah responded: “Ending the poisonous practice of treating Americans of different Social, Ethnic, Religious groups as different electorates to be pandered to with different promises. If we truly believe the words over founding documents, ‘Declaration of Independence’, with its world changing assertions that ‘All Men Are Created Equal’, than there are no Hispanic issues, no African American issues, or Women issues, there are only American issues. America already has one Party that is expert at pitting one group against another and we’ll never win that contest of Identity Politics. We shouldn’t even try.".

    Coming into the CPAC Convention many in the Media and political world questioned if Sarah Palin belong at CPAC. I ask then ‘Which of the above believes in Conservative Principles, and who believes in changing their core values just to chase a conceived notion that Identity Politics Principles are the ONLY path to electoral victory. It can not be more obvious listening to their words the difference between a candidate who has governed using Conservative Principles (to treat all her citizens the same), or a pandering Establishment RHINO politician, who has no core principles to govern by, who will gladly play favorites (by offering privileges speaking in their language) and phony promises to certain groups, just in hopes to chase down their vote (that they will probably never receive).

    Sarah finished: "If we believe American is more than just a catchy campaign slogan, than we have to believe in American Exceptionalism and its greatest achievement: "that no one is guaranteed success, but EVERYONE is guaranteed an equal opportunity at success.”

    This you will never see from our Media and certainly never from FOXNEWS. Sarah laid out a clear difference between the LEFT and Conservatives, and the CORRECT path forward for Republicans, but it will never be repeated for Americans outside of her supporters. We must ALL ask why was Jeb Bush chosen to give the Reagan Dinner Speech at CPAC, when in the speech itself, he denied all that was Reagan. To receive the principals Reagan stood for, one must have listened to Sarah Palin’s Speech (which opposed Jeb Bush’s Anti Conservative Speech) yesterday.
