The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports that Sarah Palin's address to a packed audience at a fundraiser for the Lubbock Christian School was greeted by "frequent applause and cheers".
In the full report detailed below the standout quote from an attendee who was asked what impressed about Palin is:
“Her enthusiasm, her love for America, her honesty and her core values of representing the people and not just special interests.”
This reception, coming hard on the heels of one of the most intense campaigns of villification and now slander against Palin by the mainstream liberal media, proves that the public are not taken in by the left's vile antics.
This was further reinforced by the latest Rasmussen poll which shows Palin actually having risen in favor as a major contender Republican choice for president.
The day will come when the media will have to repay the terrible debt they are running up with the American public in lost credibility-in the meantime palinsails onwards to her positive destiny basking in the deserved adulation of audiences like those in Lubbock today.
"Despite the heightened level of security concerns, the Lubbock Christian School fundraiser featuring Sarah Palin garnered ample support from area residents and created a unique connection between Alaska and Texas.
Palin, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, addressed about 1,400 people Monday night during LCS’ annual fundraiser at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
Palin said Texas and Alaska are alike because they are “good beacons of freedom
and share similar values and work ethic, said Kristen Vander-Plas, president of the Lubbock Christian University College Republicans.
She said she was impressed by Palin’s willingness to go forward with her fundraiser appearance with added security despite the recent shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona.
Many in the audience were LCS alumni, Vander-Plas said, and the audience as a whole was receptive to Palin’s message as was evident in their frequent applause and cheers.
Some, like Bob Wood, were drawn to the event through sheer curiosity.
He said he came to hear Palin although he does not always agree with what she says.
Others were avid Palin fans wanting to see the woman who made a huge splash in American politics in 2008.
“I believe in Sarah Palin and what she represents for America,” said Linda Hunt of San Angelo, who won free tickets for the event. “Her enthusiasm, her love for America, her honesty and her core values of representing the people and not just special interests.”
Still, LCS alumni and sponsors said the main purpose of the evening was raising money for the school — having Palin present was an added bonus.
Kimberly Chitwood of Minnix Commercial Construction said someone as well-recognized as Palin at the annual fundraiser is a rare opportunity to attract people and support for the school.
