Sarah Palin: “It’s Time to Stiffen Our Spines”

Sarah Palin had some pretty harsh words for the Republican party yesterday as she spoke at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual fall banquet. Her words were geared toward the members of the party who agreed to go ahead and fund Obamacare to end the government shutdown, according to Reuters.

She was joined in her efforts by Mike Lee, Republican from Utah, and Ted Cruz, Republican from Texas and Tea Party star, both of which were instrumental is the ill-fated attempt to defund Obamacare.


Palin told the audience it is time to “stiffen our spines” for the 2014 elections. “I want to encourage you to make your voice heard, to hold politicians accountable,” she said. But that wasn’t all she said about politicians.

She had some sharp words for those who caved to the pressure in the government shutdown ordeal. “They promised that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare, but when it came time to stand and defund it, they waved the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight for us,” Palin said, speaking of those like Cruz and Lee.

In his speech on Saturday, Mike Lee had some ideas to think about before the next election season, such as “market-based alternatives” that could replace Obamacare if the Republicans hope to have success at the polls in 2014.

“Frustration is not a platform. Anger is not an agenda and outrage, as a habit, is not even conservative,” Lee said.

Cruz made a visit to Iowa last month where the first electoral event in the nominating process is held, making it a key state in election campaigns. Hmmm. I smell hopeful candidates. Would you vote for a Palin/Cruz ticket?

    We need to “stiffen our spines” and “go after the evil doers”. Don’t you love how politicians say things that really have no meaning. That isn’t a course of action — it is just rhetoric. Heck, I could do that. Just make up some words that make the populace feel like they are empowered.

    It is all BS. Here is what we need to do: vote them all out. Every single one of them. Send a clear message that things better get better or it is just the beginning. Vote them all out. Put your partisan politics aside and send a clear message. That why things never change. Americans divide themselves too much. Speak with one voice America.

    The reality is that this country is crumbling and we must do something or we will fall.

    Hey … it is the “mama grizzly.” I am sorry I just have to laugh. This woman does nothing but come up with sayings. Nothing constructive. Just lame, vague sayings. Reminds me of Bush. All politicians are fools and crooks. Take that to the bank. Only in America, can a runner up in a beauty pageant, who went on to do sports casting and who thinks that Paul Revere warned the British, lead a political party. My two favorite things Palin ever said was the founding fathers said the pledge of allegiance (never mind the fact it was written about 100 years after the founding fathers were around) and also Sarah thinks there is a Department of Law in the White House. Wait … I forgot the time Sarah said that Afghanistan was a country right next to the United States!!! That was priceless.

    Don’t think I am a Democrat either. I can rip them as well. They are all idiots and really don’t care about the people.

    Sarah Palin also spoke about saving Christmas. Sarah was in Iowa to promote her new book “Good Tidings and Great Joy”. If Sarah and these so called Christians really wanted to do the work of Christ they would be giving and raising money for the Philippine survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. Sarah just needs money for a future defense fund for the crimes she committed against Shawn Christy. http://shawnchristypoliticalprisoner.blogspot.com/2013/10/alaska-us-attorney-karen-loeffler.html
