Sarah Palin: “We need a Commander In Chief, not a Professor of Law, standing at a lecturn”

Saturday, February 6, 2010

Gov. Sarah Palin addressed the Tea Party Convention in Nashville tonight. It was not necessarily a “wow-them” speech, but one containing all of the hot button issues that are on the minds of a majority of voters. Twitter and Facebook were buzzing with pro and con comments and it reflects all of what Sarah Palin stirs in people. The huge chorus of haters proves how much she gets under their skin.  Palin’s speech was covered live by CNN, MSNBC, Fox and C-SPAN — that speaks volumes to how important and influential she is in the politics of this nation.

To me, Sarah Palin represents the type of people who served in our first United States Congress; fisherman, farmers, and shopkeepers who went to New York to serve this country and spoke in common sense terms.

Sarah Palin does not come off as a smooth professional seasoned politician. She speaks plainly and directly to the issues. That is 180 degrees opposite from everybody else in Washington today and that is a great part of her appeal.

In her Op-Ed in USA Today , Sarah Palin said, “l look forward to meeting many Americans who share a commitment to limited government, common sense and personal responsibility. This movement is truly a grassroots, organic effort. It’s not a top-down organization; it’s a ground-up call to action that already has both political parties rethinking the way they do business.”

“The soul of the Tea Party is the people who belong to it — everyday Americans who grow our food, run our small businesses, teach our children how to read, serve the less fortunate and fight our wars. They’re folks in small towns and cities across this nation who saw what was happening to our country and decided to get involved. Thank God for them. Many of these good Americans had never been involved in their government before, but now they attend town hall meetings and participate in online forums. They write letters to the editor. They sign up to be precinct leaders and run for local office and support other independent patriots. They have the courage to stand up and speak out.”

In Nashville Sarah Palin spoke to a crowd of about one thousand attendees, “It’s so inspiring to see real people, not politicos, inside-the-beltway professionals, come out, stand up and speak out for common-sense conservative principles,”

She called the Tea Party movement a “ground-up call to action that is forcing both parties to change the way they’re doing business.”

Palin reminded the administration to take note of the last three election results, saying “you better stop lecturing and start listening.” “The Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda will leave us less secure, more in debt and under the thumb of big government,” she added, saying “voters all over the country are sending a message that they want change in Washington.”

“How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?”, Palin said.
