Earlier this week, Governor Palin appeared on Hannity and encouraged Mitt Romney to "light our hair on fire." Romney is certainly not the most electrifying of individuals, thus he really needs to step it up to engage the American people. Kevin Fobbs would agree. He penned an article for the Examiner in which he advised the candidate to heed Governor Palin's advice:
Sarah Palin is smart, decisive and she understands the needs and the dreams and aspirations of the heartland of America. So when she urges Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to “Light our hair on fire”, it would behoove the presidential aspirant to listen.
Throughout Romney’s political career, it is safe to say that no one would ever accuse him of possessing rousing oratory or that he has ever lit an audience on fire with flame and inner passion. But, that is probably not as essential in this race, as having the ability to connect in a personal way with each one of the millions of voters who walk into that voting booth to cast their vote. Each voter needs to feel, Romney is right for their family’s needs, and that his administration will build a better tomorrow for their family, sooner rather than later.
Sarah Palin has bottled that formula for inspiring the conservative and independent American electorate, because she not only speaks from her heart, but Palin lights a flame underneath each person who listens. She encourages them to get up and stand up for an America that is rich with values, history and principled purpose.
Palin speaks to the heart of an America that Americans remember, full of grandeur and bristling with vibrant spirit and tenacious ability to protect the family, and rebuild from an inner spiritual strength endowed by God.
Mitt Romney should seriously consider using Palin’s suggested playbook and truly demonstrate from within his will to defend and protect America’s families and their future. He must jettison the image of being perceived as a candidate who is walking a politically safe tightrope to the RNC Convention and the fall campaign.
Sarah Palin has it absolutely right, as she stated on Fox News Network, Sean Hannity’s show Tuesday night. She stated that Romney has the message right. Yet, that is only part of the battle. In order to carry the independents and conservatives votes across the Electoral College line in November, Romney has to, “Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in the presidential election because it is the election of our lifetime,” indicated Palin.
Former Governor Palin is right on point. America under President Obama is slipping into a socialistic induced economic quagmire that worsens with each day. Romney has to show America that he is willing to not just tell us what is happening to the nation, but “'Light Our Hair on Fire’,” so that we can see it, and more importantly feel it.
