The immediate news shows — even the ones on CNN — gave Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Convention speech great reviews. The speech was simply inspirational along the lines of her RNC speech in 2008.
In the post-speech Q&A, the gentlemen remarked to her:
I can think of two words right now that scare liberals, “President Palin.”
A simple but classic line that drew roars of applause and ovation followed by a “Run Sarah, run!” chant.
Palin, in answering that comment sure hit the nail on the head when she addressed the current administration’s phony and loose use of the word “bipartisan.” There was nothing bipartisan about any part of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid plan to hijack another sector of free-market enterprise. (Since the government’s involvement in the mortgage industry was so impressive!) This flack about bipartisanship was a strawman for liberals — as it never truly existed — and merely impossible for Republicans since no Democrat took any of their ideas seriously. Palin said that if she were president, she wouldn’t lie to Americans the way the current administration has in that regard. If Obama’s policies are so good for the country, and knowing how conservative free-market principles are so demonized by the left, why would he risk his credibility with the moonbats by pretending to even want bipartisanship on an issue so important as health care?
If Palin were President, she’d tell it like it was. Her Congress won’t be pointlessly rattling on about a bipartisan effort with nuts like Pelosi or Kucinich. However; the Tea Party has proven that conservative free-market principles are not Republican ideas. They are American ideas promoted by conservatives. There are conservative Republicans, conservative gays, conservative Democrats, conservative blacks, and conservative whites.
There is no “bipartisanship” in rejecting the Constitution.
Sarah Palin drove that point home tonight by speaking simply, honestly, and directly to the Tea Party crowd.
I cannot think of a better way to honor Ronald Reagan on his 99th Birthday than to have the nation hear the words “President Palin” uttered after what will go down in history as one of her most definitive and effective speeches ever.
Here is the full speech in all five parts!
