Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the keynote speaker at CPAC Saturday and she didn’t fail to deliver some blows against President Obama. At least, in her mind she was saying something significant. Like, President Obama “transformed a shining city on a hill to a sinking ship” and he “mucked it up.” Um, exactly what did Obama’s predecessor, a Republican president, do for the eight years he was in office? Sarah Palin says never before in history has there been such a gaping disconnect between how the president sees this country, heading in the right direction and the people on the ground saying something else. Um, George W. Bush. She says WTF to President Obama’s jobs plan (Win the Future). In other words, gutter talk coming from Alaska trailer trash.
Sarah Palin says President Obama is the champion of the power brokers who will bankroll his campaign. She said “our nominee must be strong, a fighter for American ideals,” etc. She says they are looking for someone who inherently believes in the Constitution. “Competition will lead us to victory in 2012,” Palin said. She says next time this year “we will have a true conservative in the White House” and a “Commander-in-Chief worthy of our troops.” “President Obama lacks the vision to lead.” Um, as though she has that vision. This is the same person who jumped ship on the people of Alaska. Sarah Palin also said before her speech, that a brokered GOP convention wouldn’t be a bad thing, but that would mean the Republican Party is in a tailspin and would play in President Obama’s favor.
The conservatives can’t help themselves. Immediately following Sarah Palin’s speech was Shania Twain’s “She Not Just a Pretty Face,” playing in the background. Um, that’s exactly what Sarah Palin is, just a pretty face (some would beg to differ), with nothing of substance or history of accomplishment to stand on.
