PUMA 4 Palin: "…Obama Campaign. You Got Problems"…or Karma Is A Barracuda
Bambi lost this election right here:
My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.” (Governor Sarah Palin)
According to Chris Wallace of Fox News interviewing Howard Wolfson:
“Yes, I am here with Howard Wolfson. Howard, let me make a keen, political observation to you and the Obama Campaign. You Got Problems.”
“Well, look I think Senator Biden needs to bring his “A” game to this debate. The media had sold the story of this woman in the middle of a soap opera. She came out here and she benefited from low expectations and she gave a heck of a speech. What I was particularily impressed with, was her ability to stick a knife into Barack Obama with a smile and do it effectively. She was very, very good.
Oh, The DNC Is In A World Of Hurt Now! The Smackdown Has Begun and it really started with a small town hockey mom that isn’t a lawyer. BWWWAAAAHHHHHH!!!!
I am not gloating; I almost feel sorry for the corrupt DNC leadership that selected Gumby over Senator Hillary Clinton; almost. Then again, I believe that they deserve everything that comes their way (and much more) after what they and the Obama Camp have done to the American people in the way of caucus fraud, primary fraud, the sham of the DNC roll call and calling Americans that will not vote for Obama racist. What is amazing about all of this is that everything these Republicans are saying is true and PUMAs have known about it for, at times it seems, forever. All of America is now going to find out what really started the Party Unity My Ass movement and why Just Say No Deal exists. (and ya’ll thought we were old, white, menopausal, bitter, crazy, sore losers.)
The Rollout of the RNC Heavy Hitters Has Begun
Here are the speeches, videos and assorted quotes from Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee, Rudy Guiliani and the very succinct, Sarah Palin. It is a smorgasbord of linked speeches and videos. Enjoy.
Former Tennessee Senator, Fred Thompson:
Fred Thompson stating the questions that we will not have to ask about Senator McCain, but are nagging at the back of most American’s minds about Barack Obama:
It’s pretty clear there are two questions we will never have to ask ourselves, “Who is this man?” and “Can we trust this man with the Presidency?”
A President who feels no need to apologize for the United States of America.
No, they’re just going to tax “businesses”! So unless you buy something from a “business”, like groceries or clothes or gasoline … or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small “business”, don’t worry … it’s not going to affect you.
They say they are not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the “other” side of the bucket! That’s their idea of tax reform.
Former NY City Mayor, Rudy Guiliani:
So, our opponents want to reframe the debate. They would have you believe that this election is about ‘change versus more of the same.’ But that’s really a false choice. Because “change” is not a destination … just as “hope” is not a strategy.
Senator McCain was the candidate most associated with the surge. And it was unpopular.
What do you think most other candidates would have done in that situation? They would have acted in their own self-interest by changing their position.
How many times have we seen Barack Obama do that?
Obama was going to take public financing for his campaign, until he didn’t.
Obama was against wiretapping before he voted for it.
When speaking to a pro-Israel group, Obama favored an undivided Jerusalem. Until the very next day when he changed his mind.
I hope for his sake, Joe Biden got that VP thing in writing.
and continuing with Former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee:
I love that Mike Huckabee dropped a piece of brain candy for all of us and then told that incredibly moving story about the “earned desks” and I personally wonder if the stories about Barack Obama not registering for Selective Service are true. Here is the money quote:
And speaking of Governor Palin, I am so tired of hearing about her lack of experience. I want to tell you folks something. She got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States.
Let me tell you about someone I know who understands this type of sacrifice.
On the first day of school in 2005, Martha Cothren, a teacher at the Joe T. Robinson High School in Little Rock, was determined that her students would not take their education or their privileges as American for granted. And with the principal of her school’s permission, she removed all the desks from her classroom on that first day of school, 2005.
Now, the students walked into an empty classroom and they said, “Ms. Cothren, where’s our desk?” She said, “You get a desk in my classroom when you tell me how you earn it.”
Well, some of them said, “Making good grades.” She said, “Well, you ought to make good grades in my class, but that won’t earn you a desk.” Another student said, “I guess we get a desk when we behave.” Martha said, “You will behave in my classroom.”
But that won’t get you a desk either. No one in first period guessed right. Same for second period. By lunch, the buzz was all over the campus. Ms. Cothren had flipped out, wouldn’t let her students had a desk.
Kids started using their cell phones. They called their parents. And by early afternoon, all four of the local network TV affiliates had camera crews out at the school to report on this teacher who wouldn’t let her students have a desk unless they could tell her how to earn it.
By the final period, no one had guessed correctly, so the students filed in. Martha said, “Well, I didn’t think you would figure it out, so I’m going to tell you.”
And with that, she went to the door of her classroom and motioned, and in walked over 20 veterans, some of them still wearing the uniforms from days gone by, every one of them carrying a school desk. And as they carefully and quietly arranged those desks in neat rows, Martha said, “You don’t have to earn your desk, because these guys, they already did.”
These — these brave veterans had gone halfway around the world, giving up their education, interrupting their careers and families so that we could have the freedom that we have. Martha told them, “No one charged you for your desk, but it wasn’t really free. These guys bought it for you. And I hope you never, ever forget it.”
The video and speech that everybody has been sitting on the edge of their seats for. Sarah Palin hit it out of the park with this speech. If this is how she is starting out on the national stage, then I’m thinking Joe Biden better start hoping his senate seat is still open and I hope that Gumby does not owe too many favors to the Chicago Political Machine.
My favorite quote from Governor Palin’s Speech:
My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.”
I’ve added few choice quotes for those who do not have time to watch these videos. Follow the link to read Governor Palin’s entire speech. Here are a few select quotes.
I love those hockey moms. You know they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick.
Before I became governor of the great state of AK I was mayor of my hometown, and since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience….let me explain what the job involves.I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren’t listening.
We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.
As for my running mate, you can be certain that wherever he goes, and whoever is listening, John McCain is the same man. I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment.< br> And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone.
But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion – I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
I’ve noticed a pattern with our opponent.
Maybe you have, too.
We’ve all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers.
And there is much to like and admire about our opponent.
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? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.…
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.
Our nominee doesn’t run with the Washington herd.
He’s a man who’s there to serve his country, and not just his party.
A leader who’s not looking for a fight, but is not afraid of one either. Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the current do-nothing Senate, not long ago summed up his feelings about our nominee.
He said, quote, “I can’t stand John McCain.” Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps no accolade we hear this week is better proof that we’ve chosen the right man. Clearly what the Majority Leader was driving at is that he can’t stand up to John McCain. That is only one more reason to take the maverick of the Senate and put him in the White House. My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.” This world of threats and dangers is not just a community, and it doesn’t just need an organizer.
Sarah gets it, just as the millions of PUMAs do. Gumby can say that this election isn’t about him, but it is and always has been.
According to my spousal unit, “Sarah Palin smoked him…Obama is vulnerable.”
Yes, Barack Obama definitely has problems, the RNC smackdown has now begun.
Hey Gumby, Karma is a barracuda.
UPDATE: I have been watching CNN’s talking heads on Larry King and WOW, considering how hard they are bashing on Governor Palin’s “lack” of experience, attack strategy and general demeanor; I’m guessing the Gumby and Mishy are flipping out.
I know what my next post will be titled:
Democrats are Frothing At The Mouth
