Our friend Jedediah Bila has her thoughts on yesterday’s speech in an excellent piece in today’s Daily Caller:
She was feisty. She was bold. And she was gutsy. At a Tea Party rally in Madison, Wis., on Saturday, Sarah Palin pulled no punches.
The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate credited the Tea Party with winning “an electoral victory of historic proportions last November.” She praised Scott Walker’s efforts toward fiscal discipline. She stood up to the GOP establishment. And she had a strong message for Barack Obama as we approach 2012: “Mr. President, game on!”
Palin expressed strong support for common-sense conservatives in Madison and a positive message for America as we look forward to the next presidential election: “Madison, you defended that 2010 electoral mandate. You are heroes. You are patriots. And when the history of this Tea Party movement is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten. Your historic stand brought down the curtain on the last election, and the 2012 election begins here. We will take the courage and the integrity that you showed all of America. We will take it and we will win back our country … We will fight for America. And it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin. It starts here! It starts now! … Mr. President, game on!”
Palin’s Madison speech reminds us of some important things. She’s not in the least bit afraid of a tough crowd. She’ll hold members of her party accountable if they don’t keep their word. She is passionate about the Tea Party movement and isn’t about to abandon her conservative principles in order to fit in with what’s cool in D.C. And she is one tough cookie.
Most importantly, Sarah Palin sounds ready, willing, and able to tackle the Obama agenda. Like I always say, let the games begin.
