Backbone: Palin supports Glenn Beck!

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page yesterday:

An Invitation:

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.

-Sarah Palin

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.

In Palin's picture above: She's reaching for the .45 from her panty hose, isn't she?

Even if her inclination is not to run for President, she sure is paving the way for someone else to openly display some Conservative guts while doing so.

Palin is the epitome of one of Reagan's best quotes: "There is no limit to what you can accomplish
if you don't care who gets the credit."

This is the BEST picture I have ever seen of her.

This is an excellent point you raise about republicans not standing behind conservative talk show commentators. I love to see Palin and Beck supporting each other- and I stand behind both of them. Support them both, and they will greatly help us take our country back! Love the piece. Every republican and conservative needs to read this.
PS support the reverse boycott aginst Sargento cheese products to support Beck.

Whether Sarah chooses to run in 2012 or not, I do believe one of her goals to to drag the GOP back to the right side of the fence.

BNS:

Perfect quote for Palin. Where McCain ran on a slogan of Country First, Palin is actually living up to the words.

@eloh:

There are tons of excellent Palin pics over at TeamSarah.org

NormaJ:

I am totally on the reverse boycott.

Gary said...

Cliff, as always, you hit the nail on the head!

Sarah indeed has a backbone of steel. She is totally fearless. as she said a few months back:

"They want me to sit down, they want me to shut up. Politically, if I die, I die, but I won't sit down, and I won't shut up! They are going to know I was here"


Words to live by!

You know who would be a dream ticket? Sarah Palin and Condaleeza Rice. Together you have all the Charisma and "Gravitas" needed to win the GOP Nomination and sweep into the White House as another "historic Presidency". But this time, it would be a historic Presidency run by people who have actually read American History.

The phenomenon of Republicans shying away from their conservative base and those conservative commentators who support them is very interesting, and frighteningly widespread. I hope more politicians will realize this and embrace true conservativism, not just the "reaching across the aisle" brand of betraying their voters.

Ray said...

I support both Beck and Palin and their selfless quest to inform the American people. It is quite obvious just how dangerous they are to the socializing of America. If the left were truly not afraid of these two they would get no attention whatsoever.

NormaJ said...

I am not so sure about Condolezza as a conservative candidate. I use to truly admire her, she is a strong intellignet woman, and she certainly has the experience, but it seems she was ready to betray the republican party and endorse Obama. I was so disappointed in her at that time, but we have not heard much from her since she left office. Republicans need to learn to grow a backbone and stand together, which is why I though every republican needs to read this article. We have had enough RINO's. Am I right or wrong about Condoleeza? I would love to be wrong about her.

Gary:

That is what I love about Palin, she keeps her word!

I would crawl on broken glass to elect a Palin/ Rice ticket. I remember early in the election cycle there were mummers about Rice running for Pres. Lord knows she would have made a far more capable president than our Affirmative Action socialist wannbe.

Clifton B said...

Divinity Avenue:

Exactly, so many of the current Republicans worry too much about reaching across the aisle that they completely forget their conservative principles.

Clifton B said...

Ray:

Welcome to ABC! You are right, so many leftist dismiss Palin and Beck, but it is the hyper attention they pay to the both of them that gives away their true feelings of them...fear.

Norma J:

If you study Rice's biography, you will see that she survived much of the turmoil of pre-civil rights. As such, one could understand her desire to see the first black president. There is nothing wrong with that so long as one admits voting for Obama because he is black. Not like Colin Powell who is going to get up there and bestow a all these magical attributes to Obama that simple does not exist.

Republicans need to grow backbones and those who already have them need to dominate the spineless ones. Squishy Republicans are of no use to anyone.
