Sarah Palin’s Outstanding Speech!

with 6 comments

Wow. I was never prouder of women in politics and in civil service than I was tonight watching Sarah Palin pour her heart out. What an exciting, moving, emotional speech, John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin gave to the Republican National Convention! Sarah Palin is an incredible and very credible Vice President for conservatives.

Unlike the crowds in the Democrat National Convention for the celebrity superstar Barack Obama, not only was I overwhelmed, the Republican attendees were out of the chairs most of the speech. They were in such frenzy, from the time she came out, the thunderous applause was nearly non-stop. The Republicans jumped up and down most of Sarah Palin’s speech. Tears welled up in my eyes when Palin promised she would be an advocate for the special needs children in the White House and when she talked about Tom Moe and John McCain’s torturous tenure in the Hanoi Hilton.
Not only did she endorse John McCain for the presidency brilliantly and graciously, she was eloquent, tough, and right on the mark with her attacks of the weakness of liberals Barack Obama and Joe Biden candidacy.

I am thrilled with her extraordinary poise, humor, and sincerity. While the Obama-loving media will report all the negatives, saying she did not write her speech. What candidate writes their acceptance speech? None. It’s a campaign team effort. Tonight, Sarah Palin proved as a woman, she has the guts and the fortitude to be in charge of this United States of America.
My favorite Palin quotes tonight:

  • “To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters.I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House. “
  • “And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities.”
  • “We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco. “
  • “But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and … a servant’s heart. I pledge to all Americans that I will carry myself in this spirit as vice president of the United States. “
  • “But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform – not even in the state senate. This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word “victory” except when he’s talking about his own campaign.”
  • “But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot – what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? “
  • “In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.”
  • “They’re the ones whose names appear on laws and landmark reforms, not just on buttons and banners, or on self-designed presidential seals. “

Tonight for the second time in United States history, a woman has a credible chance of being in the White House. It won’t be because of the liberal leftist feminists, nor the Democrat campaign machine, but because conservatives and Republicans are supporting a woman!

  1. My favorite part was when her daughter was seen wetting the baby’s hair to hold it down. It was a very human and normal moment and shows that Palin runs a caring home. Kudos to her husband, his love, support, and pride in her was glowing.

  2. I thought, beforehand, that putting Rudi Giuliani on was a waste of time. Wow, was I ever wrong. In attack dog fashion , some class, he ate Barak Obama’s clock! What a warm up that was for Sarah whom ,I agree, was an unequaled sensation.

    It will be interesting to see how the MSM treats Sarah now and henceforth. There is now no question in my mind that she will do just fine…….Like you, I am hypes.

  3. So eloquently she drop-kicked Obama in the nads. Quite a woman.

    What a great line and what a great truth.

  5. I like Sarah Palin. Her hometown approach to issues is refreshing in an age when politicians don’t know the cost of most things.
    Beacuse I like Palin does not mean that I should say odious things about other candidates (also known as people, fathers, mothers, sons, etc…). Precisely, that is the reason for such lethal division in our country.
    We have lost all civility towards one another.

  6. We have lost all civility towards one another.

    Political debate has always been about thrust and parry.I saw nothing odious from either side. The candidates serve us well by pointing out the other’s foibles, weaknesses and records on the issues. If you think that the past two weeks have been foul play, perhaps you should skip the upcoming debates. You ain’t seen nothin yet.
