Sarah Palin Lays Into Obama, Uses Crib Notes, Says Nothing of Substance

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin gave the keynote address at last night's National Tea Party convention in Nashville.

Offering no policy alternatives, but winking often, the former Governor of Alaska assailed Barack Obama and the current administration. Regarding his plummeting poll numbers and the election of Scott Brown to the Senate, Palin taunted:

"How's that hope-y, change-y stuff workin' out for you? You'd better stop lecturing and start listening."

Asked how she would handle terrorism, she said simply: "We win. They lose."

Right. Thanks for playing, Sarah.

In case she forgot the key points with which she'd rile up the crowd, yet not actually deal with in any rational manner, Palin made like a middle school student and scribbled them on her hand:

Other than general conservative principles - such as lower taxes (which Obama has done) - the speech was bereft of Palin's own ideas, an indication that she may not run for President in 2012 or has no ideas. Possibly both.

If the Republicans take back the House later this year, Palin was asked the top three items that should be on their agenda. Her response:

  1. Rein in spending.
  2. Devote resources to coal and oil as sources for energy.
  3. Focus on divine intervention for the country.

Seriously. Those were her top three policy initiatives on her list.

She wasn't asked how much cash she pocketed for posing with daughter Bristol on the cover of a supermarket tabloid.

Using her speech to incite a crowd that already thinks Obama is a tyrant socialist - an awfully ineffective one, if so, as he's given billions to the banks - Palin implored: "America is ready for another revolution!"

It's unclear what this actually means, except that Palin knows how to draw applause from an auditorium full of misguided citizens that may mean well... but possess no grasp on reality.

While she didn't comment on any plans for the White House, the crowd stood and cheered at one point:"Run, Sarah, Run!"

Is something you'd like to see? Do you hope Sarah Palin runs for President in 2012?


@cassidy: I'm trying to think of a polite way to say this, but can't come up with any: the writing is on her left hand. Look at the photo. Granted, I don't expect a Palin supporter to know his/her right from the left... but please try to do so before making a comment.


Okay, thank you Captain Obvious.. Fixing Bush's multiple mistakes will take some time. We HOPE there will be CHANGE, that is continued. Palin was brought down to reality when she ran for VP. She is unqualified and naive, nothings changed there.


Sarah Palin is a catalyst for waking up Americans to the fact that Obama and his ChiCrew are a disaster to this nation. Those of you, particularly Jaz, who must resort to obscenities in order to comment are typical of "his people" and will never accomplish anything worthwhile since they are stifled by ignorance and lack of vocabularly. Get off the dole losers. You have no right to anything for free. The plantation days are long gone - stop that mind set.


I like how you photo shopped that writing on her hand. I guess that is why you are hollywood gossip. Check out her speech on youtube. The first 37 seconds of her appearance on stage she asks the veterans to raise a hand, in saying that she raises her right hand. You cannot see a thing... sharpen up those photoshop tools...:-)


For the record: bashing Obama in response to criticism over Palin isn't a legitimate response. This article barely touches on Obama or defends his first year in office. It's critical of what an absolute farce Palin is.
If you think Obama is terrible, fine. That's not a defense of Palin.


The shit she lays is smarter than her!


@Chelsea Obama hasn't kept any promises? He hasn't done anything? How are any of those bad things? Now I know you don't really pay attention to politics, but please, do your best to refute it.


"Please. She was the GOVERNOR of a STATE. Of course, it's just like the left to ignore such a blatant and obvious fact".... you're a fucking moron.


Republicans are dumb, it's a fact. I'm a Canadian and it's embarrassing that you would even consider the election of Sarah Palin as a president. She's from fucking Alaska and can't even keep her own family under control let alone a country that's in distress. And why may you ask is Obama doing terrible, because the country was left in fucking shambles because you mother fuckers elected president Bush TWICE !
It's funny how passionate you are about it, and don't even know what the fuck your talking about.
Tired of Republican idiots fucking up everything for the rest of the world. Thank you Democrats.


Say What?: What experience does Obama have? Less than 300 days of a Senate seat, the majority of which he spent campaigning for Presidency? Please. She was the GOVERNOR of a STATE. Of course, it's just like the left to ignore such a blatant and obvious fact. OBAMA STILL HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING BENEFICIAL FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. ALL HE HAS DONE IS LIE, CHEAT, AND MANIPULATE.
