Full Speech: Sarah Palin at CPAC 2012

Sarah Palin aimed her rhetorical guns at Barack Obama and didn’t stop throughout the entire speech, talking about Obama’s failure of leadership on entitlements and unemployment and his twisted priorities in cutting military spending but nowhere else.

She also talked about the primary process, how competition will make our candidates that much stronger to take on Obama in the general. Of course, in Palin style, she didn’t endorse anyone but I think that was expected. She’s been saying all along what she said in this speech that she wants the primary process to continue.



Before it was over she pointed out the huge need for Tea Party reinforcements being sent to the Congress so that we can strengthen the House and take back the Senate and the White House.

Overall it was a great speech that really fired up the crowd. You can watch it below:

Our nominee must be some one like Palin or at least some one with a similar fierceness to defend our American way of life, and totally free of political correctness.

The Problem with the GOP is they treat it like a Franchise and if you haven’t had a location and gone along with all the Social Progressive Issues they’ve also promoted then they won’t help you. I’m running for the US Senate from AZ and I have been slowed down at every turn by the GOP and the other two chosen Candidates as a result of not going along with the system that selected them as I was told by a sitting Congressman who said when told I’d be running you can’t do that we already have Our Candidate. They’ve asked me to drop out and kept me out of events and postings on websites and the corrupt press in AZ both Dem and GOP go along with this. I’ve had a political talk show in the Phoenix area and interviewed most of the statewide office holders as well as… Read more »

Breath of fresh air, restores my hope for America after all the negative news everywhere. For whatever it’s worth remember that Golda Meir (Israel), Indira Gandhi (India), Margaret Thatcher (UK) governed their countries with iron fist and made great progress during their time. Sarah Palin must choose her time and take that leap, hope I get to be a part of such history making.

People! This is a binary choice! You either get the republican (whoever it is with whatever bad points) or you get 4 more years of the worst president in history!
I am not at all sure that we would survive it. Are you willing to take that chance by making that binary choice?

I thought I would share a comment I wrote elsewhere, I thought it was pretty good and about 300 others thought so too. Sarah Palin, what is there to say? The media poured through 24,000 government emails to find she was pure as a snow flake and as honorable and forthright as a Buddhist monk. The MSM, the Democrats and Establishment Republicans attacked her and she came out stronger for the forging. When a piece of iron is heated and annealed with the fires of condemnation, to only come out the other side like a samurai sword, you have to embrace truth of the conviction, she is just a soldier in the fight for freedom. What exactly is it that the leftists hate? Her refusal to kill her child? Her conviction of non corruption? Her beautiful but flawed family (which family was ever perfect, which person but Jesus was ever… Read more »

SPARKS FROM WYATT’S TORCH Conservatives and libertarians should stop calling Democrats “liberals” —- because they are helping the Democrats with this label — not hurting them. While many Democrats and other leftists agitate in favor of socialism or communism [distinctions without a difference], the majority of them prefer the Nazi / fascist economic model — which works out in practical terms to the “crony capitalist progressivism” now practiced by Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, the OhBummer Wrecking Crew, the Democrat party at-large, and the “establishment” / “RINO” [Republican-In-Name-Only] Republicans. Keep in mind here that Hitler and Mussolini launched their political careers as Marxist communists and later they adopted political disguise for their agenda of moral cannibalism and “eating the rich.” Does this sound familiar, given who now controls the White House and the Senate? Note that progressivism, socialism, Nazism [“national socialism”], fascism and communism are all joined-at-the-hip in their common contempt, enmity,… Read more »

THE FLEA PARTY —- OHBUMMER’S “ONE-PERCENT WALL STREET OCCUPIERS” AND OTHER OHBUMMER STREET GANGS A few months ago I began referring to OhBummer as a pathological flea, inasmuch as the majority of Americans see him as a bloodsucking fraud and a dishonest propagandist. In the first week of October, 2011, I bumped into a blog comment referring to the Occupy Wall Street gang as “the flea party” and I warned the author that I would STEAL his ingenious reference and use it wherever it could inflict the most damage on the enemies of the American taxpayers. On October 12, my favorite columnist, Ann Coulter — she a Christian and myself an atheist — published a column entitled “WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!” at her anncoulterdotcom website. Clearly, things have gotten out of hand. This prairie fire of flea-mongers is raging out of control, wherever you turn. ~:<)… Read more »

THE AGE OF OHBUMMER OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

Well, if you people love Sarah so much, and want her in the President’s cabinet, vote for NEWT, and send money to NEWT.org.’ NEWT said she could be ENERGY Secretary. I quit GBTV because I don’t trust Genny Beckster anymore and he hates NEWT, and never lets up trying to destroy him. So I sent the $120 I will save to NEWT. Something is up when so many of all sides keep asking for NEWT to drop out. IF he does well on Super Tuesday, things will change VERY FAST. Don’t let the narrative get to you that if he does not finsh second in Arizona and Michagan, he has to drop out? Since Rick has won some, it is going better for NEWT than he planned.

As usual, Sarah’s speach left me speachless!!!! She articulates the true conservative vision and points out how the establishment has hijacked the GOP. She’s been right all along (I have not in asking her to endorse) about letting the race continue and not endorsing a single candidate. Her view that Romney is not conservative has now fired up the base even more than it was previously.As time goes on, Romney becomes weaker. We are all truly blessed to have America’s version of the Iron Lady. A woman for our times.

Palin not convinced Romney is a conservative: “Most voters in the GOP, and Independents, we will want to see that candidate who we can trust will just inherently, instinctively turn right – always err on the side of conservatism,” Palin said on Fox News Sunday. “I am not convinced [Romney is that person]. And I don’t think that the majority of GOP and Independent voters are convinced, and that is why you don’t see Romney get over that hump.” Palin alluded to recent polls that put former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum atop the GOP field, as well as Romney’s tough stretch last week when Santorum shocked observers by winning three primary contests in a row. “He [Romney] is still in the 30 percentile mark when it comes to approval and primary wins,” she said. “He still hasn’t risen above that yet because we are not convinced.” Palin said Romney –… Read more »

Listening to both speeches, here is the difference between a real conservative (Sarah) and a “Severe” conservative (Mittens)…..real conservatives speak from the heart, stand behind their convictions, love their country and make no bones about it.

“Severe” Conservatives speak from both sides of their mouths, sit on the fence and have no convictions and stand for nothing but their own self-interest.

What Sarah should be pointing out is the pacs of both parties have made literally all the candidates in either parties dupes, gits and dolts that are polarizing extremes.

All pacs create nothing but paid-for lackeys shouting sound-bites. It’s time to put our biases aside and recognize the fail of the two-party system and how corrupt it all is from pacs.

Folks as you know, we are way off track and continuing with either party and the polarizing bias pacs create is simply more wrong-headed, illogical, unreasonable insanity.

And the cure is to debate and discuss our future openly, rationally and impartially, weighing all the evidence or non-evidence and moving forward thoughfully and consciously. Unfortunately, if we do that, we will be forced to educate ourselves even more about how the World really works – which most, including Sarah, find annoying it seems.

Rick, since this is your first visit here, welcome. To address some of your points, there are many speeches where she has spoken against the huge party pacs. You can find them in the title bar at C4P, Sarah net, and Palin TV, and in articles and vids here on the Right Scoop. I agree with you about the destructive effect the super ‘party’ pacs have on elections. Candidates should be supported by the citizens thru personal donations to their campaigns, and not mega money machine like the super pacs. Rather then elections being won by a qualified candidate, all to often as we have seen, an office is ‘purchased’. Why would you think that anyone would be ‘annoyed’ by educating themselves? Most who post here do understand HOW the ‘world works’, and how politics in America IS NOT working as designed by the Founders. Is Sarah annoyed by what… Read more »

Yes, in fact they are purchased by pacs, ahh…just like Cpac. It’s like dancing with the devil to get to heaven. Just thought I’d try to clarify the hypocrisy. IMHO, we must part with corruption of pacs and return to the issues without the extremes. And thanks again for the welcome.
