Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders Gives Republican Response to State of the Union

Newly elected Republican Governor Sarah Sanders of Arkansas gave the Republican response to Biden’s State of the Union address.

Widely hailed as a great speech by Republican activists, Sanders gave her response live from the Governor’s mansion in Arkansas just moments after Joe Biden completed his state of the union speech.

It’s tradition for the party that is not in power in the White House to give a response after the President has concluded his speech.

Here are some excerpts:

Sarah (00:00):

Emma. She was 20 years old and in her first year of marriage. When she was diagnosed with spinal cancer, the doctors told her she might not live. And if she did live, they said she’d never walk again, and if she did walk, she definitely never have children. The daughter she was told never have was just sworn in as the new governor of Arkansas and is speaking to you tonight. Adversity and fear of the unknown can paralyze us, but faith propels us to charge boldly ahead.

Can’t stand still in the face of [inaudible 00:00:44]. You and I were put on this earth for such a time as this, to charge boldly ahead. I’ll be the first to admit President Biden and I don’t have a lot in common. I’m for freedom. He’s for government control. At 40, I’m the youngest governor in the [inaudible 00:01:04] and at 80, he’s the oldest President in American history.

I’m the first woman to lead my state and he’s the man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can’t even tell you what a woman is. In the Radical Lefts America, Washington taxes you and lights your hard-earned money on fire, but you get crushed with high gas prices, empty grocery shelves, and our children are taught to hate one another on account of their race. But not to love one another, or our country, leaves this madness or is simply too weak to resist it.

His administration has been completely hijacked by the Radical Left. The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left. The choice is between… It’s time for a new generation of Republican leadership. Upon taking office just a few weeks ago, I signed executive orders to ban CRT, racism and indoctrination in our schools, eliminate the use of derogatory term, LatinX in our government.

Repealed COVID orders and said never again to authoritarian mandates and shutdowns. Americans want common sense from their leaders, but in Washington, the Biden administration is doubling down on crazy. President Biden inherited the fastest economic recovery on record, the most secure border in history, cheap, abundant, homegrown energy, fast rising wages.

A rebuilt military and a world that was stable and at peace, are now killed from drug overdoses, largely from fentanyl pouring across our southern border. Yet the Biden administration refuses to secure the border and save American lives. And after years of democratic attacks on law enforcement and calls to defund the police, violent criminals roam free while law-abiding families live in fear. Beyond our border from Afghanistan to Ukraine, from North Korea to Iran, President Biden’s weakness puts our nation and the world at risk and the President’s refusal to stand up to China, our most formidable adversary is dangerous and unacceptable.
