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?

Ms. Palin and her conservative crew are making a mockery of the country. First of all, I am not interested to hear her squeaky voice during State of Union Address. So please America, let's not masquerade this country's integrity and parade this Barbie Doll as your next candidate to take President Barak Obama out of office just because you don't like him. Anyone that would have followed George Bush needs at least two terms to attempt to get this country back on track to blessings and prosperity. Unless you want to continue to feel the wrath of Yahweh as Pharoah did in Egypt concerning the Children of Israel. You can do better than this Barbie Doll candidate that has enough at home to worry about than to take on this country's challenges for the next decade. How can you clean up the White House if your backyard is questionable? American Please go dig for another if you trying to replace President Obama. This one won't work.

Maybe if the writers of these "articles" spent less time copying their phrases from TMZ (10th grade? there's 12 others to choose from, people), they'd realize that Obama has not followed through on one promise, or done one beneficial thing for America or the American people. So, again, the question is asked: How's that hope-y, change-y stuff workin out for ya?

@notafan: How very sexist of you to imply that a woman can't think without her husband at her side. Your words, not mine. As for using notes, every public speaker uses notes. It keeps them on point and ensures they don't lose track of points in a speech. And your hero, Obama, doesn't use notes... he uses a teleprompter and reads everything word-for-word. Who's the joke?

THIS WORTHLESS PIECE OF GARBAGE THINK THAT SHE CAN BE AN ASSET TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY TRYING TO GET HERSELF INTO THE WHITE HOUSE...WHAT A JOKE.HER HUSBAND WASN'T AT HER SIDE TO THINK FOR HER SO SHE CHEATS LIKE A MIDDLE SCHOOL CHILD.....WHAT A LOOSE.WHITE TRASH.

If Palin was able to remember her whole speech reading only seven words off her hand I say more power to her. Obama needs teleprompters to even speak to school kids.

It is incomprehensible that anyone with a brain cell could believe this woman is credible in her personal or professional life. What more proof do these people need? Ignorance is truly bliss...
