Sarah Palin rocks CPAC mocks Bloomberg with a Big Gulp and said Obama needed to be background checked.

I thought Palin gave a great speech.

She has the great ability to connect with people on everyday issues.

She took big gulps of Glen Rice

She took big gulps of Glen Rice back in the day too ;)

My view of her has changed for the good

She has generally been supportive of Ron Paul and now that she has shed her neocon advisers and replaced them and her foreign policy stance to be less interventionist, I think of her more highly than I did when she ran for office with McCain. My hope is that as I perceive her evolving into her own person, she will be a voice for liberty positions going forward.

ROFL, just kidding. I wanted to see the expression on your face.

Sarah has her own style and it works for her. I do not find it difficult to listen to her. She's more refined than Ann Coulter. There is a place for their wit and point of view. I don't see that carrying over however as a presidential candidate.

Her biggest turnoff for me is

Her biggest turnoff for me is that she is so pro military. I also didn't like that she endorsed Rick Perry. But on the whole I don't get why so many people are so against her because she has always spoken out on many of the ideas we agree with and she has been somewhat of a DC outsider. Of course she has climbed to a point where she is among the privileged but we need those people to talk common sense and she appears to do that. The more of her audiences that hear about drone injustice and Americans as equals not as race identified groups, the better.

Palin has done great things

Palin has done great things for the state of Alaska. The reason so many people dislike her is because the media told them to hate her. She spoke out against King Obama and was viciously labeled all sorts of nasty things.

I like she speaks her mind, and too bad that the press doesn't like it.

Palin is not a serious

Palin is not a serious thinker. I would give her a wide berth. Constitutional selectivity mixed with blow in the wind neoconservatism. Palin only rose in Alaska in a waive of anti corruption and establishment sentiment. Not because she was particularly relevant but mainly for lack of other alternatives in such a small state. Her work on the Alaska oil and gas commission and public battle with the Corrupt Bastards Club headed up by Murkowski/Ruedrich. She went from quasiditzy mayor of Wasilla to run against corrupt Murkowski, an incumbent republican in a republican state with 10% approval at election time. This was much less about her than it was about him. as the rest of you know she quit the governors job to run with McCain of all people. I raised money for her in AK for Governor and the idea her in Washington scared the hell out of me. She is an opportunist not a person of any real depth or conviction on the Constitution. Let her be a cheerleader if you like but she is not to be taken seriously.

We don't need serious

We don't need serious thinkers that gets us people like McCain, Graham, Obombya? Uh, we need quasiditzy normal people who take down corrupt incumbants. I say a quasiditizy home spun person of the people is worth 100 polished turd politicians. So she didn't know all her facts about how government runs and world history. Big deal- we don't need entrenched criminals who know how to game the system for the ruling class. I'm sure she isn't ideal, but at least her talking points raise awareness for our agenda. She is right, we need more home spun people to run for all offices at all levels.

She makes everyone worse

For standard issue republicans, she encourages them to bleat at name calling (background check) without saying anything thoughtful. She diverts.

For democrats, she's a nice monster for them to point to in horror and "ew, were not THAT!", and then they don't get to think about actually being good liberals.

Sarah is smart and pretty.

Sarah is smart and pretty. Democrats want to destroy any non-democratic woman who is intelligent and attractive. They will rip her apart.

Anyone can be made to look stupid or smart by the media. Our president, supposedly a brilliant lawyer, can be made to look dumb as well. If he doesn't have the teleprompter, he is lost.

Go back

Go back to the video where she's being asked about Paul Revere and how she "doesn't have a clue" to what she's saying.

DM you watch too much MSM.

DM you watch too much MSM. I've seen that video a hundred times.

When you are out in the public (and often times tired) there are going to be plenty of times when you say the wrong thing. Of course the MSM played that video over and over; they wanted to destroy her.

Precisely because of the smear campaign, I decided to research Palin's record. You should do the same.

Here's our "president":

He couldn't save his life, without a teleprompter. Palin gets creamed for writing a couple of notes on her hand. Hypocrisy, you got love it.

A complete moron.

Typical Palin supporter...make an excuse for her stupidity.
You do not know what I watch...I rarely even watch T.V. at all.
How did you decide such? You've seen the video a hundred times, this means you are the one who watch too much MSM.
The only time I've seen the video was here on this post above, I do not watch NEWS....I rarely watch old Movies and that is very rare.
You are a complete MORON to think like you do.
When people really "wake up" and stop kissing, and worshiping politician's asses...then we might have a chance. But I am not optimistic this will ever happen, and you've convinced me even moreso.

I'm not going to respond to

I'm not going to respond to name calling. Your post speaks for itself.

Shes alot

better then Ben (controled opposition) Carson that so many were fawning over and I don`t agrre with her on everthing but she is better then most and I feel that she is understanding more and more of what is going on and I have no problem with her calling out not only the dumbacrat Obummer but also the Repuklacan Carl(scumbag) Rove! So perfect no but a work in progress?

InLibertyDan

i will admit Palin doesn't piss me off as much as

other talking heads. She has also been nice to Dr Paul, so I am not going to bash her to badly. But she still played a part in the Tea Party take over to establish the tea baggers. If she was a pawn in the game or a willing player I don't know. But she is somewhat responsible regardless as she was either politically ignorant and naive or a hatchet women.

I will say, at least she is good on the 2nd amendment and seems to understand the importance of balancing a budget. And she also included republicans in her criticisms. So I give credit where credit is due.

She just needs to stop being scared of Iran and brown people.

It's not a high school

The system is beyond broken, both (fake) parties are at fault, a total re-haul, re-fresh, new government is needed.

I like what she says (now)...

I just find it hard to separate her from mcinsane!

And not just mcinsane but ALL of that gop heirarchy.

I need to hear more of her specifics on cutting defense, cutting all wasteful spending, the supreme court, and the balance of power.

Lets get down to brass tacks, Sarah.

Then, we'll talk.

Yawn...

Palin. So boring...

If this is whom you think represents us best? We're sunk!

I liked it

C'mon... it's CPAC for goodness sake! At least she got in a few good digs on BO and Bloomers. I really doubt she was 'awake' enough when she agreed to be McNDAACain's VP to know he was a RINO... probably didn't even know what a RINO was.
And you have to respect her for the fact that she knew her unborn child had Down's syndrone and she didn't abort him. That's truly courageous and also shows what a strong marriage she has.
Why do so many have to tear a body down just because they don't align 100% with their political ideology? Palin ISN'T McNDAA or that grunt from SC, and she certainly isn't BO. She agreed with Ron Paul's economic policies and only had a problem with his foreign policies because she's stuck in warmongering mode. I was like that until it was explained to me - yup, I was a Fox watcher. But I got over that. Maybe she can, too. She's loves our country, its founding ideology and documents and that's more than you can say about most of those rubes in Washington.

How was it explained to you

How was it explained to you to make you change your mind?

I started two threads asking everyone what made them change their mind or get on board with the liberty movement, and I got almost no replies. To me that's the most important subject there has ever been here, and it's like people want to pretend they came out of the womb voting for Ron Paul.
