Just Words, Just Speeches...

2012 Draft Sarah Committee

Just Words, Just Speeches,...

During the 2008 campaign Candidate Obama made a
speech where he stated, that with he and his campaign,
words meant something and he promised a change in
how things were done in Washington.

A friend of mine sent me the video below this morning
from Breitbart, that serves as
yet ANOTHER reminder that with President Obama
and his allies in Congress it was Just Words, Just
In this video he promised he would not
use Executive Orders to circumvent the laws that came
out of Congress. Yet with his promise to issue an executive
order designed to appease a handful of Pro-Life Democrats
who have held up health care reform in an effort to restrict
Federal funding of abortions, he shows us he is not what he
told us he was during the campaign. One way or the other
this is more of the same... "Just Words, Just Speeches".

The truth is that this President promised change in
Washington, yet shows what he said to get elected is
not how he governs. So yes it was "Just Words,
Just Speeches
". I can promise you one thing, in
November we will not forget. A couple days ago
Governor Palin shared a link to a petition on her
Facebook Notes, that serves as a reminder to Congress
of that fact, we will not forget in November. I suggest
you drop by and add your name to the over 300,000
Outraged Freedom Loving Americans that say
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! You can read Governor
Palin's full post HERE.

I also suggest you read her latest Facebook note where
she reminds us that elections have consequences and
how out of touch Washington DC is. Read that
note HERE.

Keep Fighting The Good Fight,

Setting the Record Straight

It amazes me how often the media seems to purposely misreport events as they relate to Governor Palin. Yesterday I ran across a story online with the headline: "Palin loads up on freebies at Oscar gifting suite". I reeived a copy of this release below from Meliss Lemer Co-Owner of The Silver Spoon that sets the record straight.

The "mainstream" media has been called the Lamestream media by many, THIS kind of reporting is a perfect example of why they are called that. Whatever happened to reporting the facts?

Come on media do your job! Report the WHO, WHAT, WHEN and WHERE and stop the spin and personal attacks.

Release from The Silver Spoon:

Untruthful Articles Re: Palins taking free stuff in LA.

The Silver Spoon, a company owned and operated by women and established with a firm belief in supporting women in business and leadership, invited Governor Sarah Palin and her family to participate in a charitable function sponsored by The Silver Spoon and the Red Cross to support the Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts in Haiti. Governor Palin graciously accepted since it was in support of such a worthy and timely cause. The governor arrived with a small group about 15 minutes prior to our store’s official opening; and upon arrival, she and her entire group gave generous donations to the cause. We offered to open early to accommodate her schedule; she did not ask us to open early. The other venders routinely set up an hour before the event opens, so they were already there when the governor arrived. No one was asked to come in early. When Governor Palin arrived, she and her guests made generous donations. I escorted her around and introduced her to every vendor, and they talked to her about their products and gifted her with samples. She never asked for anything but politely accepted the products. The governor and her family and guests were very gracious and respectful to everyone. We asked and the governor happily agreed to take a photo with the American Red Cross staff and the staff of The Silver Spoon. The governor stayed for a total of about 35 minutes, thanked everyone, made an additional generous personal donation pledge to the Red Cross, and then departed.

The stories currently circulating about Governor Palin’s attendance at our event are total fabrications. Just one example of the many falsehoods is the ridiculous idea that Governor Palin walked away with 40 AIAIAI headphones. In reality, she was given two pairs of AIAIAI headphones – one for herself and one for her daughter Bristol who could not attend the event. The idea that she took 40 pairs is an outrageous falsehood. It would have been impossible because the vendors only bring around 100 items for the entire two day event. They would have run out of product after an hour of opening yesterday.

Just to clarify things, the entire point of giving someone a swag bag is to have them take your product and hopefully purchase more. The whole point of giving away products is to “give them away.” That’s why we call this type of event style a “gifting suite.”We would like an immediate retraction and an apology to The Silver Spoon, its vendors, and especially to Governor Sarah Palin.
