Hang In There

Hang In There November 8, 2012

I know many of you are so upset that Barack Obama is going to be our President for the next four years. Me too.  However, Mom had something to say about that, which I thought I’d pass on:

America, don’t lose heart. This election is not an “Obama mandate,” nor is it a rejection of conservatism. Unanswered ads like this one running in blue collar swing states defined Romney early on, and the Obama media also piled on with the narrative that Romney would harm the middle class. (As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, it’s impossible to un-ring it.) Ironically, it’s Obama’s socialist policies that will destroy America’s working class as he outsources opportunities.

Hang in there, America.

    IMPLOSION (My heart aches for our Great Nation)
    An implosion is a deliberate act to destroy, decimate and condemn an unwanted “property”. It is thought about carefully, planned meticulously, and is carefully organized. The head of construction has an idea, and he has a team that conspires with him. They plan every detail. First searching for every weakness they can, and this is where they place their tools to take down the structure.
    Instead of seeking out what good is left in the structure, they are sickened by the beautiful and still solid foundation that is there… they want to replace what they see as old fashioned with something bigger, brighter and more modern.
    Although there are many in the crowd that love the sense of “home” and nostalgia that this foundation brings, the head of construction ignores the pleas of the crowd as he puts into motion his plan to completely destroy the structure. He forges ahead with fervent intent. He orders his staff to immediately find every weak spot, and this is where he orders that they begin to chip away at the foundation knowing all too well, that once he weakens the foundation, his job will be so simple.
    At his order, the structure will fall.
    The property I speak of is our great nation…and Obama is determined to bring it down. – May God help us!

      He will bring us down and he will make sure God disappears from everything we have. He ruined us in just 4 years and now he has four more to finish what he stared and all those that voted for him will see what he is but it will be too late to take it all back. People are blinded because of his color thats just stupid vote for the right reason not because he’s black he’s also half white HELLO. I feel like we as a nation or doomed. I know a whole lot of people think that too. The middle class are carrying this country and we have no more to give. I can’t even safe any money any longer. My kids are barely making it and they are trying. He cares about nothing but for him self he’s laughing at the idiots that voted him in I’m sure. Another 4 years to take us down and he will DO IT. We’ve been sinking since 9/11 and again since he’s been in office worse then 9/11. He vacations on our money and takes and takes. I pray every day for him and hope it gets what he deserves. He is the worst we’ve EVER EVER had in that office. And I bet if we got some honest people in there to count those votes he wouldn’t of won.

      • Sheila

        Omg the melodramatic responses are hilarious. Drama queens all of you. How foolish you will look in four years when things aren’t that different than they’ve been. Get over yourselves.

  • Romney and the GOP threw Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and Ron Paul supporters under the bus….he didn’t have the GOP base support. How could he win!!!

  • Sue Lynn

    God help us…

    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18

    • ralph gapol

      Sarah and your self Bristol are huge inspirations and im comforted by your mothers words and only hope things will get better as we head toward 2016!!!!! love ya all ralph gapol from illinois

    • Amen, we are children of the eternal Lord and King. Heaven and earth will pass away, but his word never will. We do our selves well to prepare for our Lords coming soon. For those who do not believe they will turn on each other in the end so we must pray for them before it is to late, I believe this election showed us the Lord is telling us to humble ourselves and pray so he will heal the land and the hearts of his people to go out a preach the gospel to prepare them all for his coming, for the end of this life will come but the next is eternal.

  • James

    God knows what he is doing. The right person for the country won twice. We are in God’s hands even if Republicans can’t see or understand.

  • Merry

    Might’ve helped if the GOP didn’t ban your mom from everythjing! Convention etc. They just don’t learn. Made every single SAME mistake from 4 years earlier! The only reason it wasn’t a super blowout in 2008 was because of your mom! We need a true conservative. A contrast. Romney’s a seemingly nice guy but we need a Palin type who would go after Obama. That’s why Reagan won. Palin 2016. Btw, Bristol loved your radio show on Sarahnet!

  • MiddleRoader

    Not the slightest hint of conciliation in Palin’s post. She can spin it all she wants, but the American people have spoken. Blaming the media, especially when she’s a commentator on a network that bashed Obama every night, rings hollow and petty. Of course, conservatives should keep on fighting for their principles, but the losing side has to give a little more. That’s the way politics work. The Founding Fathers believed in compromise; the Constitution came about because of it. And you can disagree vehemently with Obama’s policies, but they are not socialist. It’s time to end the scaremongering and exaggeration on both sides and work together to get things done.

    • Middleroaders,

      And the illigals!!!!! No ID’s in alot of states. Registration taking place after the deadlines even on the
      day of voting in Ohio. Legitimate President I think not. And we have Benghiza yet to take care of.
      The President should have answered to that before election. I can’t imagine anyone who would
      want this man back in!!!! Oh, and we still have to find out about the voting machines that so
      conveniently put in Obama when the voters hit for Romny. Wonder why it didn’t work the other

      • Azaria

        There were a number of voting machines that went for Romney when you tried to hit Obama. The videos are on youtube. It was a technological glitch, not a scam.

      • Sheila

        Thanks middle roader for a great post. I couldn’t agree more. And contrary to what people,think many democrats want both parties. Neither side has a lock on all the good ideas. We need diversity of opinion without all the silly fear mongering, bring back moderates. Bring back compromise. Get rid of extremists like Sarah Palin who truly only cares about her on fate. She continues to damage the republican brand, if u don’t accept that ur going to keep losing, give her a talk show or something but for your own good walk away from her as quickly as possible. As entertaining as it would be for me to see her run in 2016 I don’t want to see the Republican Party vanish.

      • BlueVA

        As I wrote to one of your fellow mourners, Millie, President Obama won in states that required photo IDs. See Virginia and Florida.

  • Azaria

    Okay really conservatives you need to get a hold of yourselves. Barack Obama is really not as bad as you paint him out to be. He is left of center, not socialist. Now instead of just bashing him for the next four years, you could actually try to work with him. He’s our president, and he deserves a basic amount of respect.

  • Sue B

    Like others said – our God is with us. We need to know our Constitution and not let Obama change it. Even though I was for Romney I believe, now, that it would have been difficult for him to do what he knew needed doing. With Harry Reid still in charge of the Senate and vowing to veto anything Romney offered, it would have been difficult. Now Obama can deal with the gridlock. One thing I do hope, however, is that Obama is held accountable for the horrible job he did in Benghazi. We need to keep after him for that.

    • BlueVA

      Good observation, Sue B: “with Harry Reid still in charge of the Senate and vowing to veto anything Romney offered, it would have been difficult. Now Obama can deal with the gridlock.” Welcome to President Obama’s world. What do you think President Obama has been doing for the past four years, enjoying frat parties with Congressional Republicans? Mitch McConnell wasn’t too ashamed to plainly articulate his goals — to make President Obama a one-term president — and he still had supporters who couldn’t see that his brand of gridlock would make life difficult for everyone. Rush Limbaugh said he hoped President Obama failed, and still his audience refused to see how the president’s failure would be everyone’s hardship. The United States of America is everyone’s country. We need to start owning it, first by refuting talk of failure and obstruction, no matter who speaks it. I pray for unification and the wisdom of our leaders this time around.

  • And by the way the middle east Russia and other countries of that kind are happy we kept this man.

    • BlueVA

      Really Millie?! While Europeans are happy about President Obama’s reelection, here’s the reaction from Iran:

      “”Four years ago, Obama … announced he would extend the hand of co-operation to Iran. But he pursued a different path and imposed unprecedented sanctions and it is natural the Iranian people will never forget such crimes.”

      You GOPers should love that.

      • Blue,
        Name your source where that came from!

  • Trisha

    Thank u Sarah an Bristol I refuse to watch the news “for awhile anyway 🙁

  • Kelly

    I am so afraid. I don’t see there being an America in 4 years, not one I remember. I have not wanted to go to work the last 2 days. Not sure what to do. Never have I suffered this kind of depression before. I feel we have lost our great country for good.

    • BlueVA

      I truly feel for you, Kelly. It must be scary to believe that President Obama hates you and all you stand for. First and foremost, however, you can help yourself by coming to your senses, counting your blessings, and praying for clarity of vision and that our leaders will rule with wisdom. That’s what got me through the Bush years, when in 2006 through 2008 my husband was deployed to Afghanistan (and injured there), my house sat on the market for 7 months and didn’t sell, and my salary was decreased by 8 percent. Life goes on…

  • Most Definitely! Thank you.

  • Mike

    God bless your Godly family Bristol…Sarah Palin 2016!!!

  • Victor Orozco

    Thank You Bristol for this. When I woke yesterday morning and found out B.O. won I was depressed, then I decided to cheer myself up. I bought this black T-shirt with the Gadsden flag embedded on it which I hoped to wear to celebrate instead I walked proudly after going to the gym into my university (liberal institution) to show that as a conservative I was still proud.

    So Romney lost, at least he did better than McCain, winning back several states Obama had won before. Plus Obama still has to contend with being John Boehner’s whipping boy.

    Funny enough I’m finding comfort in Richard Nixon’s farewell speech. When we lose an election and we feel all has ended, not so. Because greatness comes, when you’re really tested and takes some knocks and some turns because only when you have been in the deepest valley can you know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain. We are in the deepest valley, but we shall be back on the highest mountain.

    God Bless You Bristol and God Bless America.

    • BlueVA

      Not true, Victor. I believe the only state Obama didn’t retake this election was NC. There are maybe a couple more, but not several. I also see that the neo-Con blogs are claiming that Obama lost every state in which there was a photo ID requirement to vote. Do yourself a favor: don’t parrot that in one of your classes at the “liberal institution,” because you’ll earn a failing class-participation grade! I’m happy to report that Obama took Virginia, where we’ve had an ID requirement for years and years. I believe Florida also instituted such a law, and that went blue, as well. 🙂

      • BlueVA,
        He made sure alot of illigal Latino’s registered and in Ohio they were illigally registering people
        the day of the election. His Chicago machine was out in full force. There were people
        that said they were again able to vote multiple time.

        • BlueVA

          I wonder about YOUR citizenship status, Millie, because your command of the English language is absolutely awful.

  • Rachel

    Thanks for the positive words from your mom (love her). It’s always heart warming to know there are others who are like minded 🙂

  • Pat

    I see businesses are already starting to lay people off in anicipation of Obamacare.

  • me

    Your mom sure taught you great values. Dropping out of school and getting pregnant is the way to go! Romney sure would have a made a great president except for the fact that he has absolutely no ideals or substance. Only a dying fish flip flops

    • Me says,
      You have just exposed yourself on how little you know about the people you critize and judge.

      • me

        So Millie, are you she didn’t drop out of school and didn’t get pregnant?

        • Bristol attended school while she was pregnant. She graduated with honors. She should
          be commended for keeping her baby and not aborting it or giving it up for adoption and
          also finishing school.

          I recommend you read her book.

  • YOu guys are such a blessing to our country. May GOD bless you abundantly… America the BEAUTIFUL!

  • Sheila

    Sour grapes and sore loser. Your mother rang that bell all by herself with her inane answers to simple questions. Take some personal responsibility Sarah. You could have spent the last several years working in Alaska and educating yourself on the issues. You chose cash. Own it.

    • Sheila,

      Again you have no idea what you are talking about. You just spew out what you want.

  • Nightbird

    Sigh, indeed. Only fools don’t know what they’ve signed up for.

  • Gregory Russo

    Yess I am very Upset that my former Governor lost the election. It has taking me while to even to think rationally about anything. since tuesday night. Even Scott browb and my choice for u.s Congressmen lost (The current Congressman is a Crook, his Wife is a federal convicted Felon, her brother is in prison and her other brother is a Fugitive. The Congressman Brother-Law stated that the Congressman was involved. The Race was very close.

    Here in Massachusetts, we have no representation of any kind beyond only one party.

    I am a huge backer of ther Palin family. I support all of you.

    I hopng to get out of this living nightmare aI am in right now.

    I always pray for the Palin family and for Bristol+Tripp.

  • Joseph

    That was a really good note your mom wrote; I shared it with my friends on my Facebook page! Yeah, I am really disappointed. But I’m just putting the future of our country in God’s hands. I pray for President Obama that he will come to his senses and realize what he’s doing wrong and I pray for God’s grace and mercy over him and that he will get his spiritual life right with God as well!

    • BlueVA

      Why don’t you run for prez, Joseph, since you know so much better than President Obama? And if you know so much about President Obama’s spiritual life, then I guess you need to get out of his prayer closet and mind your own business.

  • David

    Someone said that millions of Evangelical Christians did not vote because Romney is a Mormon and they do not believe that Mormons are Christains.
    Maybe that is why Romney lost.

    • J3

      No – no millions of anything did not vote for Romney because of his Mormonism; because no person of faith could allow their lack of voting to re-install a baby-killing, Christ-hating, Jew-hating anti-American, anti-Israel monster in the White House.

      • MiddleRoader

        Quite an amazing feat for the “Christ-hating, Jew-hating, anti-American, anti-Israel monster” to get 70% of the Jewish vote, 50% of the Catholic vote, slightly over 50% of voting Americans, and EVEN 42% of the Protestant vote. (I couldn’t find any stats on the monster vote…)

  • Maybe Romney lost because he didn’t unite the party after the primaries. He didn’t want Sarah Palin to speak at the convention. He didn’t mention the Tea Party or our Military’s name at the convention. He pissed Ron Paul’s people off and they voted for Johnson. In 2008 during the primaries Obama and Hillary were enemies and after the primaries it was love love love. Mitt did not run a good campaign….no way no how.

    • J3

      Agreed, he should have had Sarah Palin, Allen West, and so on – the GOP is afraid of such good people because they represent WE the People rather than the John-Boy Boner, Chis Christie ‘good old boys’ club. But even so, Obongo’s promise of free stuff for all who refuse to work for a living, would likely buy enough votes to swing things.

    • That is my thoughts also, he left out the people who had been elected in 2010, not even a mention of them, so he left out millions of people who would have voted for him. I also think he should have chosen Rubio, the election was about more than just the economy. The Republican party chose for the people not the other way around. He forgot how many people wanted Sarah to run and how many fans she had.

      • Betcham

        No Kathy, he remembered all the people who think Sarah Palin is a joke and has nO place in politics. He distanced himself from her and the test of the tea party knowing it would be the kiss of death for independents and a large percentage of GOP.

  • wendy

    You have no basis for claiming that Obama’s policies hurt the middle class. It’s businesses like Bain Capital taking jobs out of this country that do that. The middle class has been under siege from corporate interests and banking institutions for a long time. Do you not know how much outsourcing Republicans have encouraged, allowed, financed over the last twenty years? It seems you have no clue about the meaning of the words you or your ghostwriters puts down. Please be specific if you have points to make.

    • Jason

      Obamacare hurts the middle class. I can’t afford healthcare one way or the other, but NOW I’m forced to buy it or pay a penalty. How does that help me? How does increasing the debt ceiling help ANYONE in this country? Answer me that. As for outsource, keep in mind that it was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA into law. It’s that which caused our jobs to leave. So stop blaming the Republicans and start blaming those who are really to blame.

      • BlueVA

        Jason, if you truly can’t afford healthcare, then you will likely fall under one of the exemptions written into the program. Yours would be for a financial hardship. I wonder what you currently do when you need care. Do you go to the ER like everyone else who doesn’t have healthcare? Obamacare might open up your options if so. Learn more about it.

    Lose heart never! The Dem’s may think they’ve knocked us down, but surprise surprise, I’m even more encouraged to put up a fight. The spirit of our Republic Founding Fathers has awaken so watch out! The truth behind the Demoncrats will come out, yes the slave party, have suckered America! Herman Caine said it well when Black Americans have been dupped by the Demoncrats. I have documents to back me on comments on America’s Heritage you pro-Dem and Obama supporters before you open your mouths or in this case your key board present some sort of evidence to back your statements. You’ve feed a line of Cr?p by the Dem’s and the mainstream media and too proud to admit it!

    • Grannie Annie


  • Jason

    I’m disappointed in the American people for reelecting this jerk, but hey, I have the satisfaction of saying “I didn’t support him” if OR when this country tanks. I hope it doesn’t and I hope that President Obama can lead us into prosperity, but given his dismal first term, that’s probably not going to happen. His constant finger-pointing at his predecessor got us nowhere, even IF it’s Bush’s fault. What good does the blame game do? None! If he really wants us to move “forward,” he has to embrace the future instead of dwell on the past.

  • Gary P Jackson

    Bristol, all I know is we need your mother. Looking back, she was right not to run this year. I know she is a great student of President Ronald Reagan, as am I. Reagan first ran for president in 1972, and America simply wasn’t ready for him. I think that may have hurt his 1976 run. By 1980 the America people were BEGGING for him, just as Conservatives begged Sarah to run in 2012.

    I’ve followed your mother’s career since a few months after she was sworn in as Governor. My first vote ever was in 1980 for Ronald Reagan. Sarah is our Ronald Reagan! She is the one leader who can united the party and unite the nation. She also knows exactly how to repair the massive destruction caused by Obama and his minions. She worked miracles as both Mayor of Wasilla and Governor of Alaska.

    I’m not one to beg, but Bristol, I’m begging you to please, in turn, beg your mother to run, and save our wonderful nation. Like Ronald Reagan, Sarah sees America as that Shining City on a Hill. We need that sort running this country.

  • Tootie

    Your mother is wonderful. She will be our president in 2016. She will help bring our nation healing and righteousness. It will be great.

  • Gregory Russo

    I am mindful of the fact that this is “Bristol’s Blog, ” Via the Palin Family.

    I still feel the same way as my previous comment on this thread, but I have help trenmedously by Bristol’s latest post and watching Foxnews.

    The GOp was Bankrupt from the last Election in 2008 then came back in 2010 election. More people in these groups the Hispanic, Afro-americans, Single Women, Younger people and Blue Collar Workers voted for Obama. We need to be smarter, assertive and effective to our messaging and sometime defect the negativity from the Democrats. WE need win at all election from the local, state and federal level.

    Also in key states Ohio, Florida etc had election offices that were kept opened since 2008.

    Interesting the international UN Poll watcher felt that the voter Identifaction was non existent at polling places.

    Election Fraud and Corruption is very high in most states now. WE have severe Problem with Severe Bias in the Mainstream Media. Bristol Palin Mother is 100% correct. We need More of our own media outlets and media sources before it is to late we need boycott everything related to the Mainstream media.

  • Ms. Palin,

    You have so much on your plate. Obama is your president now, but don’t feel discouraged. America is much stronger than you give it credit.
