From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page yesterday:
FOX News' Glenn Beck is doing an extraordinary job this week walking America behind the scenes of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and outlining who is actually running the White House.
Monday night he asked us to invite one friend to watch; tonight I invite all my friends to watch.
I am hard pressed to remember the last Republican who stood up for a conservative commentator. Remember the White House’s failed attempt to go after Rush Limbaugh earlier this year? Remember how many Republicans ran the other way when asked if they supported Rush during that time?
Well now that the White House, by means of Van Jones’s organization Color of Change, is going after Glenn Beck. It is refreshing to see Sarah Palin supporting Beck at this time. Lord knows with the left demonizing Sarah Palin daily, she would be well within her rights to sit back and shut up, but instead she chooses to stand boldly and firmly by asking her supporters to tune in to Glenn Beck and listen to the very important questions he is asking this week on his show.
I have always been perplexed how conservative commentators like Rush, Coulter, Malkin, Levin, Hannity, Ingraham and Beck are out there everyday fighting the liberal agenda and informing conservatives, yet so many Republicans shy away from supporting them. Instead of building on the strong ideas put forth by these commentators, many in the GOP choose to mouth absurd liberal talking points and say these commentators are “divisive” or “over the top”. When was the last time you saw Democrats run from divisive and over the top statements made by Maddow, Olbermann or Matthews?
Whether it is knocking down bogus ethics complaints, calling out Obama for his death panels or standing with Glenn Beck during this assault, Sarah Palin has proven time and again that she has a backbone of steel. Hopefully her example will become contagious with the rest of the GOP.
