RightNation.US: Finally, A Candidate Said the Word I've Been Wanting To Hear - RightNation.US

Jump to content

-----
Ever since former Senator Fred Thompson dropped out of the race for the Presidency, I have been mourning the fact that no one, or should I say no viable candidate with deference to Ron Paul, has mentioned the one word I've been wanting to hear. Don't get me wrong. I was not really expecting to hear it from Senator McCain in particularly since I know him way too well to expect something so special to myself out of his mouth.

But tonight, I finally remembered a must-see TV event and caught Sean Hannity's interview with Governor Sarah Palin.

I'm sure there will be much said about these interviews in the next few days and I have still got to go back and watch last night's interview. There were a couple of things however that she said that meant so much to me that I wanted to mention them here.

First and foremost for someone like myself who considers abortion on the same scale as infanticide, I was scared of what Sarah was going to say when Hannity asked her about certain prominent women's groups that have failed to support her and why she thought that was so. With all of the remarks Sarah has said about breaking that glass ceiling and with all of her compliments of Hillary Clinton and her obvious courting of disaffected Hillary supporters, I never expected to hear her say what I did tonight. She said that she believed what she believed and she wasn't going to change her beliefs to get votes. I can't recall if abortion was even mentioned but it was obvious that was what was being inferred.

Later Sean asked her which political figures inspired her. The first name out of her mouth was Ronald Reagan. She talked about growing up at a time when she could admire him and how much his talk of American exxceptionalism inspired her. She also talked about his partner, Margaret Thatcher. When she first mentioned Reagan's partner, I thought she was going to talk about Nancy and I was pleasantly surprised when she said Thatcher. Last but not least she mentioned Lincoln and his unconventional means of running the government. I'm not so sure I like that last part but hey, at least she has obviously studied her history since she was talking about details of Lincoln's decisions.

Yet with all of the above and how wonderful it was to hear these things come out of Sarah's mouth, there was still one word that she said that thrilled me like no other. Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee actually said the word "Constitution!" Yes, "Constitution!" Believe it or not. Sean had asked her what it was that motivated her, what things inspired her, and why she decided to get into politics to begin with. I can't remember her exact words so I'll have to go by impressions here.

Sarah responded by referencing the Constitution and how she had concerns about it not being adhered to for us the people. Then she referenced her father and how much he taught her about the importance of freedom and independence and that was what she was wanting to pass along to the rest of us which was why she was so excited to be given this opportunity.

Do you have any idea how much I have longed to hear the word "Constitution" come out of the mouth of one of our possible leaders? I've gotten the impression lately that most of our leaders are ashamed to even mention the word so even though I can't remember Sarah's exact words, I do know that I am still thrilled by listening to what she had to say even now, almost three scores since I heard her speak.

Elusively yours,
ilja

I agree with you that Gov. Palin was like a breath of fresh air. I was very touched by her response to Sean's question regarding her feelings when she found out that she was having a Down's Syndrome child.

A candidate who loves America, great world leaders, the Constitution (arguably, the most brilliant and comprehensive document ever written by our wise forefathers), and who believes that all life is precious...well, must be a Republican. Thank God for Senator John
McCain and Governor Sarah Palin. I feel so much happiness in the leadership that these two candidates promise.

America does not need a President who hates this country and speaks ill of her, here and abroad. We do not need a President who looks down his nose at hard-working, God-fearing, Constitution-loving Americans. America does not need an egomaniac, who from birth to his ivy-league education and through to his corrupt Chicago thug political indoctrination has done nothing to help those who need it. America does need a man who has fought for her honor and safety, a man who admits his faults...and a unassuming woman who loves her family and country. We need McCain/Palin in 2008!

I had forgotten that part. It was pretty special. I could only hope I would be half as faithful.

:) Very well said. Well except I'm not a big McCain fan but I am learning to respect him . . . I think.

I absolutely agree with you Ilja. My husband and I were watching Gov. Palin's interview last night, and I said to my husband, "i know why the dems and liberals don't like her. She is an intelligent woman, and so down to earth. There is nothing false about her." I too, wasn't excited about John McCain, and was going to vote for him as a vote against Obama. My hope is that there are so many other Americans beyond this blog that long for candidates that Oda-bea so eloquently described. I believe that McCain/Palin is the true unity ticket because they know what is great about this country and are not afraid to say. When has Obama ever talked about the greatness of this country?

I watched intently tonite ...Sarah was absolutely fantastic...no hmmming and hawing ...uuh..uuhing like Obama. (I never could see this so-called Obama the great orater thing). Sarah on the other hand puts both O & B to shame. I was very impressed with her quickness and knowledge. A true WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE. My only prayer is that she absolute NOT GO ON THE VIEW. After viewing what they did to Senator McCain.....I just cant image the campaign allowing her to go on that show. Those women are absolutely despicable & they certainly dont speak for the millions of middle class working women of America. They would only have her on to boost their ratings ...dont give them the satisfaction.

I agree that she is a WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE. That does not mean that I hold her up to some ethereal unrealistic standard, either. If anything, the part that I find particularly attractive about her is that she seems so down to earth which is about the highest compliment one could get from my own mother.

As for her being on "The View", I probably have mixed emotions. On the one hand, they don't deserve her after the way they treated McCain. On the other hand, I suspect if they treated Sarah half as badly as they did McCain and she was to hold her own, she would probably win over more voters.

I can't remember when Obama has called America great. I'm sure he probably has, at least since he's been so critisized as being unpatriotic but if he has, I doubt he was being sincere.

I too am hoping there are more people like ourselves looking for someone who is real. You should post more often. :)

ilja's Corny Corner

A Doctor, A Lawyer, A Little Boy And A Priest
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and then he bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

John Mauldin relates the details of a conversation he had with John Boehner, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

At the :50 Maudlin describes Boehner telling him that Obama has,
“…balls made out of marshmallows…”

If that is true, why do we see Boehner continually backing down and rolling over while Obama stands firm and never compromises?

NEVER FORGET!

Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin’s long road home ended Saturday in a blaze of yellow ribbons, the silent tribute of people who lined the roads, and the respect of thousands more who filed past his coffin at a public visitation . . . “If four people showed up, that’s OK with me,” said Keith Maupin, the soldier’s father, as he took a mid-afternoon break outside the Civic Center, where many came up to him to shake his hand or give him a hug . . . Matt Maupin became the face of the war in Iraq for thousands here and across the country in April 2004, when an Arab TV station aired a tape showing the Union Township soldier kneeling and surrounded by masked men carrying automatic rifles . . .Four years and millions of prayers later, a tip from an Iraqi citizen led U.S. soldiers to the farm area northwest of Baghdad where Matt Maupin’s remains were found on March 20 . . .Scoutmaster David Bacon said the boys of Troop 511 had been well aware of the story of Matt Maupin and wanted to pay their own tribute.“I’ve talked to them many times about Matt,” said Bacon, whose cousin, Lance Cpl. David Kreuter, was killed in Iraq in 2005. “They understand it was the sacrifice of young men like Matt that gives us the freedom to meet every Monday night. There are places in the world where Boy Scouting is not allowed.” http://i147.photobuc.../3yqo3h0.gifPFC Keith Matthew MaupinCaptured in IraqApril 9, 2004

Bless those who mourn the lost. Bless those who serve this country well, Never mind the cost. Never mind the cost. God, Bless America!

An Email From God?

I got this in an email today and though it doesn't say who wrote it, I don't doubt these things could have happened.'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL' You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I. I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK..I am ready to go.' I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night. I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said. 'Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.' I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered. I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them. I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan ... I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor. Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there. I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are 'ready to go.' I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
