WATCH Sarah Palin Q&A at India Today Conclave

report this ad

I apologize for not being able to get the speech itself, but there were connection problems in my recording feed. I was, however, able to capture the entire Q&A which I believe was even more fun.

The Q&A portion covered a lot of territory and included tough questions that ranged from foreign policy to American economics. Below are a few quotes from the Q&A thanks to Jedediah Bila:

On China: “I have huge military concerns” … “It makes America need to be as vigilant as ever in looking at what China is doing.”

On the MSM: “You can’t necessarily trust the MSM to accurately report on your record, accomplishments, values …”

On the MSM attacks: “I’m not going to just sit back and take it. I wasn’t raised that way. I was raised to defend truth.”

On the Tea Party: “TEA Party movement has forced politicians on both sides of the aisle to rethink the way they do business.”

On Women being US President: “It’s not impossible for a woman to become the President of the U.S. In fact, I think it’s time …”

It runs about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

  • She did great. Yes, America is definitely ready for a woman president. For that woman.

    Palin/West 2012.

    • Anonymous

      I agree with her picking West as VP. I’ve thought of others, but I think West as her VP would not only be a very strong ticket, but watching the MSM have a conniption fit would be sweet!

      • Kanye? Yeah the “MSM” would love that

      I’m tired of you all speaking for ALL Americans. Speak for yourself!!! If you take the time and open your mind and stop drooling from the mouth; you would realize that 80% of the U. S. can’t stand her. That includes some from her own Party!!

      If she doesn’t win the election when she is AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET, who will she blame then!? OH YEAH, there is always the “main stream media” that she can blame every time she says something stupid; which is about every 30 seconds or so.

      • Anonymous

        Oh Me, please tell us who your brilliant candidate happens to be instead of worrying about someone who is obviously so stooooopid!!

        Who is your man?

        I’m also going to go out on a limb a predict you’re not as successful as Sarah Palin is either. What does that say about your own brilliance and accomplishments or is their someone we can blame for that unfortunate fact.

        The thing I love the most is the fact that Palin bothers you so much you would come to a blog and trash her. I noticed the insults from the moonbats during the live-feed of the event. It was pathetic, but entertaining in a creppy sort of way.

        That is what is starting to sink in with the PDS sufferers is the fact that both political party machines and the media have trashed Palin for 2 1/2 years and she is still moving forward. Most other politicians would be in the fetal position crying Uncle by now. Not Palin, she continues to go forward with her message.

        Whether people like Palin’s message or not, she has the right to express it just like every other American. I happen to enjoy it, but some don’t. They should argue her positions and not whether she is smart enough to have these positions. It’s degrading to Palin and to the spirit of the debate in our great country.

        So long Me, I hope to catch you during the primaries and enjoy even more of your misery should Palin perform as I expect. Take care.

          I am going to say something that I am sure will get me a lot of flak, but as someone who has kept track of what she’s done and said since the election (and I read her first book) I’m going to state my honest opinion.

          “They should argue her positions and not whether she is smart enough to have these positions. It’s degrading to Palin and to the spirit of the debate in our great country.”

          I agree that reasoned debate is always favorable to cheap ad hominem attacks and that, when you hurl insults, you do more to degrade yourself than your target. That said:

          1) I find that Sarah Palin is constantly hurling insults at people when she appears on Hannity, O’Reilly etc. She complains about the media skewing what she says but she doesn’t interact with the media outside of FOX – if she wanted she could probably get a full half-hour interview on any of the broadcast networks in which she could explain her positions and set the record straight, but she has chosen not to do so. Instead, she appears on a sympathetic network and casually hurls insults at about half of the country while complaining that she’s being treated unfairly.

          2) On the same token, I don’t think I’ve ever heard her clearly articulate a set of political principles in which she believes. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like she’s basically been giving the same stump speech for the past two years, filled with the same platitudes but no major substance.

    How about that? Hope Chris Christie approves because that was 30 minutes of unscripted interview covering everything. Guess we won’t have to hear from governor youtube again.

  • Sorry, gang, she’s not running. Listen to her answer to the first question. She dodged it badly.

    • Bike Run

      Sorry Dude
      I agree with her on the bailouts it was BS and as a result of that stupid decision along with other bailouts and stimulus packages we have over 14 trillion in debt. So bottom line is we are going to sink anyway under this massive out of control government spending.

      • She never answered what she would do on the Banks. Never answered. It’s as if she didn’t even prep for the thing. She was less prepared than she was for the debate Joe “pull my finger” Biden.

        This was not her defining moment. Where is her exploratory group? Book mark this thread and come back to it when she announces she’s not running.

        • Bike Run

          She did answer let the banks fail. It was all BS for the benefit of Goldman ect. Many banks were forced to take the money. It was a big scam and Bushie bought it.
          You book the spot She is running just to prove asses like you are wrong

          • The man ask “what would you have done about the banks?” OK she would not have baled them out. So what then? What would she have done instead? Would all the people who had money in the banks have just lost everything? What? What people’s savings? What about businesses that had money in the banks?

            Palin is dropping in the polls and she doesn’t seem to be taking it seriously.

              Nick
              Go back and read what really happened as result of that bailout and who benefited and who is now getting the shaft. You say Palin doesn’t seem to take her sinking pole numbers seriously well how about this The OBAMANATION doesn’t seem to take seriously the direction he is taking the country and that’s down the toilet. I believe that is his objective as he hates this country and everything it stands for. Its enablers like you who try to destroy Sarah Palin who has a love for this country and all that it is. Given the choices I will get in the fox hole with her kind anytime. Oh yea how about the OBAMANATION without a teleprompter. Well eh ah eh ah eh ah Let Me Be Clear uh eh ah talk about Palin speak. She is going to do it her way and I and others are loving it as it starts to play out on the political scene.

              • That’s not the question. My point is Palin’s answer.

                It’s time to get serious about 2012. America will not survive 8 years of Professor O’Barry.

                  They all suck
                  Palin can connect and she is sincere and she learning all the time Plus and the main thing she has taken more shots than politician in modern politics and still stands
                  She has more balls than all the boys in the room and I love it. That’s what I call a steel spine.

                • “That’s what I call a steel spine.”

                  Palin resigned from public office. DNC ad: “If Palin couldn’t handle governing Alaska, how can she handle governing the free world?”

                • Bike Run

                  Hi Nick
                  This probably is a waste of time on you, but she resigned form Govs position because she had run up 500,000 in personal debt defending frivolous ethics charges from the left loons and probably some on the right if the truth be known. In addition it was costing the state hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend their Governor plus all the man hours and lost time to the state. She did the most honorable thing by stepping down to take the financial burden off herself and more importantly the state, UNLIKE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STATES CAN NOT PRINT MONEY GET YOUR FACTS. I bet you still believe she said that she could see Russia from her PORCH. No check it out. This woman is running and you have no power to stop her not even your absurd attacks

                • Gee. Do you think Scott Walker or Chris Christie are going to resign over ethics complaints? In fact, other than Elliot Spittzer, I can’t think of a whole lot of governors who resigned under pressure.

                • Mary Beth House

                  It’s like you simply copy/paste the same inane response and completely disregard those pesky little fact things that get in the way of your narrative or something.

                • Cheryl~

                  I do think there is concern about the fact that she resigned in spite of the fact that you want to justify it…not everyone sees it the way you and others do and that doesn’t make their opinion less relevant or important!

                • Mary Beth House

                  Fine. There’s concern. But rather than regurgitating lefty talking points, it would be nice to see those folks actually looking into the why’s and wherefore’s of what happened.

                  BTW… it’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of record. ie, FACTS. My feelings about it, that she did the right thing, are my own but the rest of what I said is the unembellished truth.

                  And sorry … an opinion based on lefty talking points will get no respect from me whatsoever. Intellectual curiosity…not really knowing what happened but seeking the truth is one thing. Simply spouting inane lefty talking point nonsense as though Palin simply left her title behind for the heck of it…as though there were no paper trail or context to her decision… because someone wants to hurt Palin to boost a potential rival is reprehensible.

                • Cheryl~

                  Do you hear yourself? Just because someone doesn’t support her you assume they are on the left! That is very narrow thinking. You can rant all you want about it being a talking point but it is a FACT and you can justify it all you want-but it could be problematic for her and for those that may consider her-not everyone sees her reasons as ok. You want to believe she quit for the right reasons and so be it-I don’t happen to agree. That doesn’t make me a liberal-remember we are in America-we all don’t have to think alike even conservatives can disagree!

                • Mary Beth House

                  I didn’t say you or they were from the left. I said they were using lefty talking points. They’re just words which remove the context of her actions completely out of the picture.

                  I and others have presented the facts. You can look into it for yourself rather than accepting mine or anyone else’s interpretation. Your opinions are your own of course…but the facts are not.

                • Bike Run

                  In Rhino Christi’s case he would just jam it to the tax payers like he is doing with property tax. Alaska is only rich in assets not money. I doubt you would find any body in modern political history that has personally been attacked like Palin. like I said the state was being hampered from conducting its regular business. This is a fact you can check out but you won;t because you would rather believe a lie and pedal the same on various websites. Hope you enjoyed her speech it was great. Not sure if there is hope for you though

                • Ingeschlussler

                  Well, I’m glad to see that you have a clear view of all the other Republicans that could be in the running. Sara’s inability to deal with the incredibly high pressure of being the governor of Alaska, makes it doubtful that she could deal with the pressure of a real campaign, much less the actual office of President.

                  So…for which democrat will you be voting?

                • Bike Run

                  Not the same one you voted for Troll. She has dealt with more crap than any other politician in modern political history because they included her family and she is still standing and you call that weak? Give be a break you do not know what the hell your talking about like I said she has more balls than all the wanna be boys and that includes you.

                • Cheryl~

                  Just because someone doesn’t support Sarah Palin and states so doesn’t make their opinion irrelevant!

                  Sarah Palin 26.2 and 2012 = Run Sarah Run

            • why is it her responsibility to do something about the banks anyway? let them fail. why bail them out? banks aren’t too big to fail.

              and obviously she’s running by the way. i don’t care if you don’t like that fact, too bad. she is a powerful force and she is going far and i will do everything i can to get her to the white house. you can get out of the way, thank you.

            • Mary Beth House

              She answered. She said let them fail. And that when companies fail, others will rise up and fill in the gaps.

              She’s not in favor of the government deciding what companies get help and which do not. She was quite clear on this.

      • Except, there is one problem, interviewer stated Obama was faced with decision to bailout the banks to avoid a financial meltdown. She failed to correct him. It was Pres. Bush. Did she forget or just wants that misinformation to stay out there.
        I am also surprised that the champion of the “real America” is in favor of more outsourcing to India by US Corporations.

        • Bike Run

          I did say above that Bush bought it. However than candidate OBAMANATION the future focal point and star at the meeting in the Bush house was in full agreement of the bailouts. He was running for President and could have taken a stand different than what he did. As far as outsourcing it will continue to happen until we have a leader who is more business friendly. Government regulation and taxes are killing business on every level. Protectionism is not the answer but less Government is and, that’s what Palin is about.

    • There was no dodge to the first question. I think you should go back and listen to it. She said she wouldn’t have done it.

      • The man ask “what would you have done about the banks?” OK she would not have baled them out. So what then? What would she have done instead? Would all the people who had money in the banks have just lost everything? What? What people’s savings? What about businesses that had money in the banks?

        • Joydbrower

          Hey, Nick – re “dropping in the polls:” Just depends on what polls (umpteen come out everyday and every week!) you’re reading! As one commenter observed, she’ll jump in on HER time and in HER way. And, as many of us who’ve been following her closely can feel in our gut, she’s running all right – just that she’s totally unconventional (in a good way, of course…). So, where’s the hue & cry about the other wannabees? None of them (‘cept Newt) have officially “announced” yet either (‘course, no one’s interested in THEM! LOL…).

          As for the banks that were bailed out, where’re your crocodile tears for those that were NOT so richly rewarded by the US Treasury? People and businesses invest their money – and their TRUST in that investment – in institutions that have sold them a bill of goods that their money’s safe. Well, for the small investor, yes, their money (up to $100K – or more?) IS protected by the FDIC; but the larger institutional organizations have taken a risk (at a certain percentage return in interest) – and after that, dude, it’s caveat emptor! Or, in cruder language, T.S. It wasn’t the first time, nor will it be the last time that MANY banks have failed. Banks, after all, are often caught in the vortex of unmanageable market forces; but for their risk, they’re “rewarded” with varying interest payments. Econ 101.

              So Nick, which candidate do YOU back in the GOP? Is it a candidate that you think can win over The Conservative Base in the Primary, regardless of the competition?

              • Michelle Bachmann
                Tim Pawlenty
                Herman Cain

                • Anonymous

                  All great people Nick, with significant talent, but do you really think they can win over The Conservative Base in the Primary regardless of who enters the race ? (read Big Mama Grizzly)

                  However, it’ll be good to see them all compete in the Primary if they choose to do so – and then let voters decide.

                  T-Paw – unfortunately he has that little thing called support for ‘regional tax and trade’ on his record, and although he is a good man, he has been dubbed Yawnplenty for obvious reasons, and that’s despite the high tech ra-ra videos he’s had made by that crack production team …. he will probably have trouble drawing a crowd to hear what he has to say.

                  MB – great Conservative fighter with real cajones. Has zero Executive experience however. Only one POTUS has ever been elected directly from the HOR.

                  Herman Cain – great Conservative guy. Sound record as CEO in business, but has zero experience in Govt. Lost a Primary battle badly to a RINO in Georgia the only time he ran for public office.

                  IMO, only one gal/guy on the GOP side has a chance of knocking off TOTUS, and that’s The Steel-Spined One with the gold Conservative record of governance and going after Corruptocrats, and also the relentless fighting attitude to continually call out TOTUS on his destructive record, policies, and shady associations. (Not to mention she already lives in the guy’s head rent-free, and has done so since Aug 29, 2008! She knows her way around in there ….. which buttons to push …. LOL)

        • He wanted to know if she would have bailed them out or let them fail. I thought that was pretty clear. Your desire for her to delve further into the weeds doesn’t mean she dodged the question. It just means you wanted more.

          • “What would you do during this bail out situation. A very tough decision.”

            That was the question.

            BTW: you did seem to catch the little slip that she was in favor of outsourcing. Are you kidding?

        • Well, I supose that puts me in good company. I don’t care about the polls either. Reagan’s poll numbers were abysmal right up until election day. The MSM told us he was losing on election night as he took 48 states. So much for polls.
          Run Sarah Run!!

      Palin handled that question beautifully considering the context of the times in which TARP took place. First of all, the questioner was wrong when he said Obama, the bank bailout was Bush. And McCain. Remember? That idiot John McCain thought he’d come off as a statesman by suspending his campaign to go back to the Senate and “help” during the “crisis” that led up to the bail out bill. Palin was, unfortunately, John McCain’s running mate. She was forced to defend that piece of crap bill because McCain was instrumental in it. That’s what vice presidential candidates have to do. They all do it. And it’s things like that that will prevent Palin from EVER considering a VP slot again.

      • Palin resigned from public office. DNC ad: “If Palin couldn’t handle governing Alaska, how can she handle governing the free world?”

        Palin knows this and it will hold her back form running.

        • Anonymous

          A lot of things may hold her back from running. As she says in this interview, it’s a huge decision. I have no idea if she will run or not. I hope she will. I think she will because I think she knows we need her.

          If she does run there is a very basic counter ad the campaign can run about the resignation issue:

          A video that starts with Barack Obama taking the oath for the United States Senate. The voice over says something like “Barack Obama promised to serve in the Senate for six years. He promised he would not run for President.” (play clip of “I think you should know what you’re doing” statement of Obama). “But after just 144 days, Barack Obama broke that promise and ran for President, abandoning his job as a United States Senator.”

          The Palin campaign could get quite a few ads out of the resignation issue. One for Joe Biden, who resigned from the Senate. One for Hillary Clinton, who resigned from the Senate. Who else resigned? I’d have to go look the rest of them up again. There are a couple more people who resigned elected offices to take jobs with Obama.

          • Biden and Hillary resigned to run for POTUS and VP.

            Palin resigned because she was forced out by the Dems. This is when I lost respect for her. I think she made the calculus that if she resigned it would hurt her chance for a POTUS run, but the pressure was simply too much for her. She’s dithering now. She’s had 2 years to think about running and she doesn’t look like a serious candidate to me.

            I think she’s told us her plans, but we have refused to listen. “If there are no other good candidates running, then I’ll run.”

            She’s waiting for a leader to emerge and then she will tactfully bow out.

            • Anonymous

              None of them resigned until after they won the election or were appointed. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden all collected paychecks from the Senate while they were out campaigning. Obama and Biden were midterm so didn’t resign until just before the inauguration. Hillary didn’t resign until after she was confirmed as Secretary of State.

              Everybody knows why Palin resigned. She was $500,000 in debt and counting. I’m not going to bother repeating all the reasons because you obviously don’t care. You think you can use her resigning against her. Go ahead. No matter what her reasons were, at least she didn’t suck off the public teat while fulfilling her own political ambitions like is common practice in Washington DC. That’ll play real well in a 30 second TV spot, don’t you think?

              • Gee. Do you think Scott Walker or Chris Christie are going to resign over ethics complaints? In fact, other than Elliot Spittzer, I can’t think of a whole lot of governors who resigned under pressure.

                • Mary Beth House

                  You’re willingly ignorant.

                  The rules for Alaska are unlike any other state. Christie wouldn’t be personally financially responsible, like Palin was. Christie wouldn’t be forbidden to set up a PAC to deal with the frivolous complaints, like Palin was. Christie’s office would not be forced to spend 80% of their time dealing with these issues like Palin was…it simply would be sloughed off or farmed to a group to manage them.

                  Palin did the right thing for Alaska, for her family and for the country, since she would not have been able to be the engine for the 2010 election that she was had she stayed.

                  Doing the right thing was more important to her than clinging to her title and her government check.

                  Educate yourself before you post again and continue to show yourself to be foolish.

                • No, ma’am, one thing I have learned in my life is that people chose to believe what they want in spite of the facts.

                  I agree with you. What you seem to be missing however is that you are Exhibit A for exactly what you say.

                  You choose to believe whatever you want in spite of the facts because facts get in the way of your narrative.

                  Feel free to continue to cling bitterly to that narrative but don’t fault other people when they call you out for your dissembling and/or idiocy.

                  If I could give you some advice, I suggest you take your act to a less conservative blog where Palin bashing is a sport. You will do a lot better at a place like Hot Air where the comments move too fast for every hit to be countered. You’ll also find a lot more allies in the Bash Palin “Fans” Project.

                  Is there anyone else that has ever quit the governorship for a reason such as the reason SP did or for any other reason? I am just wondering-I honestly am not aware of it but I am sure I could be wrong…I was wondering if you knew!

                • Anonymous

                  I’m really not sure if any other governors have resigned for the same reasons she did. But then I’m not aware anyone has been in circumstances in which she found herself either (taking into consideration the AK law).

                  Just a little of her history shows that she’s her own person – a trailblazer. So, this applied to your question makes it a moot point.

                • Cheryl~

                  I hear you! But that is the way you choose to see it! It is a little concerning that every thing she says or does is justified by her followers…what makes you any different than those that blindly followed Obama? Just because someone critiques something she does or says doesn’t mean they hate or or won’t vote for her-do you really believe she is perfect? The reality is is that if she became president it won’t be she calls all the shots-it doesn’t work like that…

                  I remember having that very discussion with a fellow Poly Sci student in 1972 as to how much actual power the POTUS has and concluded that it was more affective in nature rather than direct power. Btw I have been involved in politics all my life – at one time a presidential delegate.

                  Now to the meat of this discussion – I have studied/researched Palin, like her and if she gets the nomination will vote for her. But I am not a Palinite or a follower. You should get a little more facts about a person before judging who and what they stand for and inferring if not outright saying that I’m a little Palin sheeple. I’m nobody’s sheeple – I am my own person and think way too independently for that. I guess you just stepped on my all time pet peeve.

                  All I said were facts – if you put the AK rules of the state not paying lawyer’s fees (public record) plus the cost all these suits were to the state (also public record – this will take some digging) and last (from what I’ve learned about her) she sets her own precedents and has all her life. Then your question about has any other governors resigned for whatever reason may have an effect on others but not on Palin. Therefore, it would not apply in this case i.e. moot.

              • Cheryl~

                She just said today she was raised to defend the truth-you don’t do that by quitting-I do believe SP knows she is popular on both sides-those that love/idolize her and those that hate her-but that doesn’t mean she has enough electoral votes to win the presidency. I think she must go over and over that in her mind…for better or worse she is polarizing and I don’t know that independents would jump on board if she were the nominee

                • Anonymous

                  Do you live in the real world or the Fantasy Land of your own mind? Sarah and Todd Palin were not rich when she was Governor. Between the two of them they made in the neighborhood of about $200K a year, and that’s counting her salary as Governor. By July of 2009, when she resigned, they were $500K in debt.

                  Think about that. Less than a year after accepting the VP slot she was already financially ruined. Do you understand that? They used the ethics laws that she fought for against her. And they would never stop because that’s how liberals operate. If she does decide to run for president she will have a huge disadvantage financially not only because Obama will probably get his billion dollars, but he won’t have to account for it. He’ll get away with breaking every law on the books. Palin’s campaign will spend more in legal fees than any other candidate because she’ll have to. I’ll bet her campaign won’t be a day old before it gets it’s first lawsuit.

                  I won’t even get into how much it was costing members of her staff, who also had to pay their own lawyers. She’s explained all this numerous times. I can’t help you if you don’t understand why she resigned. I do understand it. It’s a loser argument against her by people who just want to seem to have a valid reason to be against her.

                  And who gives a flying f*ck about independents? There are liberals and then there is everybody else. Sane people won’t vote for Obama again.

                • Cheryl~

                  If many liberals have come to their senses about Obama and all of the conservatives that wouldn’t vote for her change their minds then I guess she stands to win the presidency-but whether you like it or not independents are the ones to win over. That is of course if the majority of the people have seen the light about Obama-but there are a lot of people that do like him and don’t like her! It will be interesting to see!

        • Sohali

          Give it up Nick- you are redundant. Palin handled Alaska just fine till she walked to do more important things, which she has by supporting TEA PARTY candidates and opposing Obama’s agenda.

    • Anonymous

      My fellow conservative brother Nick, whether she runs or not, only time will tell. In the meantime why not spend our energy promoting Conservatives instead of bashing them. Limbaugh was correct when he said, “Obama is the real problem, not Sarah Palin.”

    • Columbo

      I’m guessing you’re not a criminal attorney, involved in law enforcement, or have in any way interrogated hundreds of people.

      I have and your conclusion doesn’t pass the laugh test. She was somewhat ill-at-ease as indicated by attempts to reduce tension by rubbing her leg, etc; but she jumped at the chance to answer the question, raising the mike to her face before it was even asked.

      I do not think, however, she was forthright later in the interview if asked if she had decided to run. Her voice changed dramatically which is a sign if deception. One way or the other, she knows and it’s my guess she is “in” as of now but
      could change her mind before formally announcing. Beltway guru Fred Malick gave her a blueprint for a campaign run and she’s followed it to a “T”: stay in Alaska; make two or three high-visibility trips abroad annually, stump for other candidates, and fundraise for the party.

      When you consider her latest moves–hiring a campaign manager, feeling out Arizona as a possible campaign headquarter location, traveling to India and Israel–both important allies who have been distancing themselves from the Obama administration, her run seems almost certain.

  • Monga Arun

    Well, As a delegate of the conclave I so hoped that they would allow the audience to have an question answer session with Sarah plain, but seems the deal was otherwise ! Anyway, as i head Sarah’s views on environment, in course of her seemingly long speech, seemed lien she is quite an environmentalist at heart !! She started her speech so passionately stating that her vision of USA is to have maximization of green energy production. Obvious reason is that in past like all other developed countries, USA has contributed the maximum to the green house gases imbalance. Now when developing countries like India are so dreaming and striving to attain same level of development as USA, is it fair that they should be bullied to maintain same level of carbon footprints as USA ??? Isn’t it a case of grave global environmental injustice ? Isn’t it a case of someone else atoning the sins committed by someone else ? Don’t developing countries have a right to develop at par with the developed ? Considering the higher costs involved in the green energy production, shouldn’t the be a special taxation legislation in developed countries for monitory compensation/contribution to developing countries so as to set off the excessive green house gases emitted by the developed during their industrialization ??

      That’s Al Gore’s plan you have concern about, and it would be filled with injustice and robbery for all countries, as Palin has stated herself.

    • Odin147

      it is not a question of ‘right to develop’, it is a question risk and benefits. If india were to develop and in doing so increased the carbon footprint, what are the implications of developing a populatioon of 1 billion indian and chinese, when compared to the development of 300 mill americans. Can earth withstand that pressure or level of pollution ?, is there a way a to develop without increasing pollution ?. When it comes to consuming earth’s resources it is first come first serve, survival of the fittest so to speak, Americans and Europeans used earth’s resources the best way they knew how in order to develop, did it effect earth’s environment ?, may be it did, but that is life indians and chinese were late to the ball game, and now it is too late. They are still free to develop, let us see what it does to earth in the future.

        atleast we can understand ‘one of the useless gop boys’, even bush is better at speakin than palin, besides there are many useful gop boys we could go for like rick santorum and newt, this would be a great combo.

        • She speaks American English with a positive, needed vision for our nation. Don’t blame her for not knowing what that is.

            an independent voting for palin…that is new…besides why would anyone be independent given the state of of this country, conservatism is the only way out of the mess, not libs, not dems, not mods, not independents.

            • I am a an independent conservative so wanting to vote for Palin shouldn’t surprise you (if you have all the facts about her and are understood that is). I am surrounded by intellectuals so I could care less if she doesn’t speak like a brilliant philosopher or doesn’t know the capital of Mozambique. I look at records, accomplishments, character, leadership and integrity.

              I would vote for conservative democrat over a “McCain”/liberal republican any day of the week. In that respect I am an independent. I vote for country not party. get it?

              My entire family is the same way. And yes, we’re all Palin supporters who send money only to her PAC.

All that was BEFORE, of course, she was picked for a partisan NATIONAL ticket – then, all bets (as well as all gloves!) were off! The Dem Party machine – kicked into action by Team Obama and several very wealthy Dem donors (and aided immeasurably by the MSM, of course) – steamrolled any and all attempts by the GOP to support her. But Palin, like the mythical Phoenix, has risen from the ashes of the 2008 GOP campaign stronger & more resilient than ever. Dismiss her at the peril of Obama’s attempt to retain the WH!!

I want Palin, and will vote for her if she runs, but when November rolls around whomever gets the GOP nod gets my vote. Obama must go. Anyone is better. Anyone.

            • At this moment, honestly, I am way more frustrated with the GOP than the other side. I haven’t been supportive of a republican in a great while.

              “Anyone” is not better. Yes, Santorum doesn’t stand a chance but some of the others do. I will have a hard time picking between Obama and a liberal Republican. And Obama will be extremely hard to defeat as it is (I am hoping the GOP knows that). So why even bother picking between the two?

                Anyone who has a hard time deciding whether to vote for Obama or a brain dead candidate on life support is too stupid to vote.

You are a moron. I’d vote for Ed Gein over Obama. Ted Bundy. Charles Manson. Jeffrey Dahmer. Hell, I’d even vote for Hillary Clinton if she runs again if it meant getting Obama as far away from the White House as possible.

                  Of course not.

                  By the way, I would never vote for Hillary. I hate women in positions of authority. Every ill of the last 40 years is a direct result of women being promoted to management positions. I wouldn’t vote for a woman for dog catcher.

                  So why do I support Sarah Palin? Because she is that rare exception. A competent woman with a spine. I’m willing to overlook the fact that she’s a woman.

  • Joydbrower

    Palin answered all his questions with tact, fact & conviction. President Teleprompter would have hemmed & hawed and just mouthed platitudes… Whether she runs for POTUS or not, she’s a leader; but what a shame to waste that leadership by NOT running! One thing her intolerant critics fail to grasp is that she has incredible and matchless political AND commonsense instincts. I would trust her to follow those instincts and be a far better leader than most (men or women).

        The problem, Old, but not Wise, is that you don’t like her answers (NOT the way she delivered them), ’cause you don’t like her politics! OK, fair enough. But the same could be said for those of us who’ve been reacting the same way for the past 2+ years to Obama’s nonsense – we simply do not agree with him, so no matter how he responds, we have the same words to say – i.e., about his lack of intelligence and commonsense response to almost everything he’s been hired/voted to do!

      Long Island Association was an unequivocal success ; an hourlong, unscripted Q&A session where Governor Palin talked about the economy, the deficit, government spending, gun control, the environment, the rising cost of food, energy, Egypt and other foreign policy related issues in front of a group of socially liberal Democrats and Republicans in an area where the Democrat Party is strong.

        I am sorry I listened to that one hour session and posted question by question on this blog in a response-she did very little concrete answering just generalities if I could find the thread I would reference you to it-and what really puzzled me throughout the hour (and I honestly I was very surprised) was her body language-she couldn’t sit still and she kept tugging at her skirt and I just didn’t understand that…perhaps she was nervous…

        • Anonymous

          Palin should wear more comfortable clothes. But she’s limited in what she can wear because she has to look good both standing and sitting. As a woman I assume you know how that goes. We’ve all been there. In Palin’s case, she also has to hide her body. I thought the top she was wearing in the India speech was pretty hideous. But it served it’s purpose. She didn’t have to fidget with it as much as she did the top she was wearing in New York. The skirt was longer, too, which made a difference when she sat down.

          I’m getting sick of seeing her in red. But she loves red so what are ya gonna do? It’s becoming her trade mark so if that’s the worst complaint I have if she runs then I’ll be happy.

    This interview is so great in terms of what Americans think about having a woman as President. India can brag about Indira Gandhi; Britain had its Margaret Thatcher, Pakistan; its Benazir Bhutto, Germany; its Angela Merkel and I could go on with Australia having a woman at the head of the state.
    The democratic party has not been able to entertain the thought of having Hillary as CIC. Hillary would have been, by far, a better President than Obama. Not conservative, but progressive. How about the rest of us? Even today, some women in this country cannot shake the idea of having a woman and much less a true feminist like Sarah Palin in the White House just because of sheer jealousy. So they quote the domestic card.
    But there is that silent majority that stood on the sidelines and watched while she took a beating. Today, we can still hear them say “we like her but…” Truth is, a rape victim gets sometimes more help and understanding than Sarah Palin. If Palin gets into the race, would most Americans set aside their biases and sexism; and look at her as someone who loves this country and is conservatively strong enough to bring it back from bankruptcy? Will the support be there? It might as well be; she does have an impressive number of supporters.
    And as long as she says that she is still thinking about running for President, it is still not a given that she would not! She has led the debate like no other. She is as unconventional and anti-establishment as one can get. We should not be surprised if she jumps in on her own terms… possibly after the first debate. If she does not; she will sure throw her support behind Bachmann!

  • maxsteele

    How can any one think this woman is not intelligent? She quite eloquently stated her opinion on questions that were not scripted, no telepromter to be seen and no notes on her hand. Is it her Alaskan accent that people react to so much? Because this is one attractive, strong, intelligent woman who would serve as a very good president.

    • she can say anything and the haters will claim it’s “unintelligent”- with nothing to back up those claims, of course. she did great answering these questions and they can’t stand that, so they desperately try to criticize her. although, no one really cares what they have to say.

  • What a liar! Todd is not an independent in a sense that he has no affiliation to either party. Todd is a registered AIP member. Alaska Independence Party is about seceding from the government. She wants to run for President while her husband is a secessionist…now how funny is that. Also, McCain lost the election because SHE was on the ticket. Some Republicans I know voted for President Obama because they saw her as unqualified and a babbling idiot.

    • Joydbrower

      Actually, NJfan, Todd, being a Native Alaskan (as in Yupik), he’d be a natural to be more than a little bit frustrated and angered by the degree of gpvernment favoritism & corruption that’s existed in AK since long before it’s Statehood (in 1964). Corruption & white-man-run government would breed “secessionist” thoughts in any red-blooded person!! From the Native Alaskans’ point of view, they were not altogether enamoured of the White Man’s ways (with liquor, guns and prejudice – just to name a few). Todd (although not 100 percent Yupik) still has that great streak of independence – and that includes independence from the White Man’s government, rules, regs & taxes and God-knows-what else!! So, don’t jump on him for the AIP: Take a breath and look at the folks in Vermont who’ve wanted to secede from the Union since the Civil War!!!

    • Aktommorow

      I am a Member of the Alaskan Independence Party, its one of the biggest Partys in Alaska and you need to be a bit more informed as to what they do want. Our State is under assault by the Fed who have locked up all of our natural resources
      Our constitution gives Alaskans the right to those Natural resources and we in the AIP are fighting to have the Fed removed and the resources given back to the people. Yes we would secede if that is what it would take, because at this time we are being strangled! So dont make it sound like it is a terrible group, we just love freedom which is something alot of folks in the lower 48 have given over to socialism!

      You are right on as usual Jasmine!

  • Did anyone actually listen to her responses?
    She favors more OUTSOURCING!!
    She dissed McCain and the Republicans. She said McCain lost because she wasn’t on the top of the ticket.
    She doesn’t seem to grasp fully the relationship between India and Pakistan, the interviewer could see that. She is in a US friendly foreign country and does not have a full grasp of foreign policy issues.
    She talked about being a “busy Mom” and not having enough time to spend on politics, but talks about equality for women—and she hints to be running for POTUS and flying to India to give interviews to PROMOTE more US outsourcing.
    I am amazed.

    • i must have missed the outsourcing part, all i heard her mention was free trade…

      mccain and the republicans dissed her WAY more than she did to them.
      and that’s not what she said. she clearly stated he lost because obama was an agent of change and america wanted that.

      she does grasp the relationship. obviously there is a difference between her and the interviewer- the interviewer, being in india instead of america, obviously has a different perspective on the relationship between india and pakistan than america does. but that doesn’t mean either of them is wrong, they just have a different perspective because of differing roles in the US/india/pakistan relationship.

      “She talked about being a “busy Mom” and not having enough time to spend on politics,”

      again, that’s not what she said. it’s pathetic how you are taking her out of context. she said she didn’t have time to spend on POLITICAL GAMES. she is a straightforward person who has a history of cutting through corruption and crap and getting to the point.

      • Joydbrower

        You’ve made a very good point here, Jasmine, re the difference between our relationship with Pakistan and India’s relationship with that country. To be blunt, they’ve been in a de facto war with each other (India & Pakistan) ever since the sub-Continent was divided 60+ years ago! Not only over border skirmishes, but particularly over Kashmir! Further, their respective majority religions have been just enough at loggerheads that a bloody separation was mandated in the first place! And although both are “secular” states – primarily, of course, India – Pakistan is bedeviled by Islam, whereas Hinduism is the opposite and, for the most part, inherently peaceful. There are, of course, many Muslims in India (I don’t know the stats or the percentage, however), as well as Christians, Bhuddists and even Jews! In Pakistan, however, minority religions are under constant stress and threats of death & extinction.

        Into this minefield, Palin had to tread VERY carefully, inasmuch as although we have an enormous trade relationship with India, it’s primarily military that defines our relationship with Pakistan. And the fact that we’re actually conducting military raids within the border regions of Pakistan, adjacent to Afghanistan, the result has been a VERY problematic relationship with that country (as would be expected in conflict and a virtual state of war).

        Under the circumstances, as more than one of the commenters has noted, Palin had to avoid ALL potentially embarrassing and diplomatically “challenging” responses so as not to do a Joe Biden (God, what a gaffe-prone, vodka-soaked pathetic excuse for a VP!!).

    • Anonymous

      Oh, did the memo go out already? Gotta harp on her outsourcing answer? Good.

      Palin handled the Pakistan question perfectly fine. The reason it was such a tough question is because she does have a grasp. That’s why she had to handle it the way she did. If anyone were ask Joe Biden that type of question while HE was in front of a friendly Indian audience we’d probably be at war with Pakistan by the end of the week. Right after they dropped a nuke on Mumbai.

      • I have come to expect the name calling and combative tone of Palin supporters. Challenge to real questions and her answers brings out the worst in all of you. If you are unable to debate in a civil manner, and to encourage your candidate to debate the issues in a non-contrived setting, maybe that should tell you something. Perhaps yours is the “wee-wee” (your high brow words) that is scared. The truth hurts.
        I suppose you have nothing to fear from outsourcing. If anyone questions one of Ms Palins policies (beliefs) she is under attack, or being unfairly targeted. Paranoia strikes deep. Good night, name caller, try being a little more open minded and civil. I apologize, I guess that is elitist, correct? We trolls are guilty of that, in RWM speak.

          You’ve got the tactic down pat, but unlike liberals and most Republicans, we Palin supporters are not stupid. We counter your attempts to further lies about Palin with facts. Since that just will not do, your only recourse is to ridicule those of us who take the time to reply to people like you.

          Speaking only for myself and not any of the other Palin supporters here, I caught on to this tactic when it was pulled on Fred Thompson and his supporters. Oh, yeah. This is not the first time a conservative was been marginalized and had their supporters mocked. The same thing happened with Fred! And, as usual, all the well known conservative bloggers ate it right up. Everything that’s being said about us Palin supporters now was said about us Thompson supporters back then. We were comment bait.

          IF Palin decides to run, and that’s a big IF, she won’t give up because all you Palin detractors have made a huge tactical error this time. You’re exposed. We know what you’re doing. It ain’t gonna work this time, Honey. If she runs, and if she makes it out of the primaries, Sarah Palin will be the next President of The United States.

    You what struck me the most? Look at how she’s sitting in her chair. Palin talks about a steel spine a lot and, yeah, it’s just political rhetoric. A good line. But my back hurt just sitting here watching her. That’s neither here nor there, except maybe a sign of a good upbringing, but it pisses me off when people say she’s not “presidential”.

    You can tell when the LEFT REALLY IS scared

    the MORE terrified they are the of the Republican 
being able to beat
    their Dumb-O-cRAT candidate.

    Sarah Palin is the PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS,
    as is Michele Bachmann.

    Sarah Palin SCARES the we-we out of the
    Leftwing-Nut, Libratard, Progressive, Dumb-O-cRAT Party,…

    Because,..

    Wait for it,…

    They KNOW Sarah Palin IS electable,…

    AND IF she runs against barry in 2012,…

    She WILL CRUSH him with indisputable numbers.

    (44 or 48 state, LANDSLIDE. Barry will MAYBE get
    IL & MI plus possibly MA, Hawaii, NY, & CA)

    So they MUST do EVERYTHING possible to DESTROY her

    you have to get off of breast milk/change to 2%. Did anyone listen to Barry’s Tucson Civility speech. You people have a DEEP dislike for this women. You need HELP, a check up from the neck-up will go a long way. Her answers were alot better then Barry’s “ABOVE MY PAY GRADE” debacle.
    Here’s my take on Sarah, President for 3 THREE terms-cleans house BIG TIME takes care of this country(SHE’S A FREAK-IN NEAT NICK)(that’s info for all that care) and takes the leash off Allen West to go take care of the unrest abroad. Over 3 weeks ago, Sarah says NO FLY ZONE. Yesterday Barry saw that France and Britian were going into the fight so Barry decided to come along. (This guy has NOTHING)
    $$$$$$$ 2 BILLION in surplus IN AK, generated by Sarah’s rules. IN HOW MANY MONTHS AS GOV ???????

    Trolls sure have been in a snit all over teh interwebs for the last few days. As soon as the news came out that she was going to India then on to Israel, they’ve been having fits. Not changing a single mind either. In fact, it just makes people defend her more. Even some that have been on the sidelines.

    Keep it up, Sarah. You’re doing a great job. Your speech & the Q&A was spot on. Enjoy your trip to Israel and dinner in the private residence of PM Netanyahu. I’m sure he’ll be happy to sit down with someone on the side of Israel, unlike the current squatter in the WH.

      Glad you ‘bots enjoyed it. The audience looked bored to tears, as evidenced by the camera panning over them at the 6:38 to 6:50 marks.

      And it was claimed she received a standing ovation — from what I could see around the 11:50 mark, just a few people sitting next to Todd Palin bothered to clap. Other members of her entourage, perhaps?

      • Steph

        Yeah, a former PM of India is part of her entourage.

        I hope you trolls are personally getting something out of all the lies, because you’re not convincing anyone. I’m sorry you have such sad lives.

      • KeninMontana

        Typical of you “Palingaters”, you sit in your sealed little site patting yourselves on the back ,thinking your “like” count confers some sort of intellectual superiority upon yourselves.Yet you present no facts,evidence or persuasive argument to support your vitriol. On that premise alone, I am banning you,however I will leave your comment up just so others can see what a true tool and idiot looks like. Have a grand day.

    Hey; Do they know that she criticized Obama publicly for siding WITH the uprisers?! She is such a hypocrite. And reallly? They lost 2008 BECAUSE she wasn’t at the top of the ticket? Does her EGO know no bounds?!

      Aaaand, another lie. She never posted what you claim.

    Sarah Palin in 2011 sounds like Ludwig von Mises in 1920 –

    Not sure if you Palin Bots will get this part… but the reason the “republicans” are better for India than the “Democrats” like the interviewer said, is the same reason everyone clapped when in the beginning of the interview he talked about how “outsourcing” was good for India. YA THINK!? Gee, and HM. I WONDER why in the world they would want a Republican in the White House over a Democrat? Now, let me think. Think. Think. Think.

    Introduction To Sarah Palin’s Speech In India

  • Mediaccess

    Thanks.

  • I like Palin but……….I’m not crazy about her views stated here on outsourcing and so called “free trade”. Now, to be honest, her Indian host, like most Indians, like most non-Americans, was obsessed with outsourcing work to his country and allowing more Indians to immigrate to the USA to take even more jobs.

    • Anonymous

      As long as it is legal immigration, what’s the problem?

      A lot of ‘charcoal makers’ lost their jobs when we started using fuel oil and then natural gas to heat our homes. Should we force a return to charcoal to save the charcoal makers jobs?

      You might recognize this quote, “A rising tide floats all boats”.

      I work in IT and our industry has been hit very hard by outsourcing, but we have found that as standards of living rise in say India or Costa Rica, outsourcing becomes less cost effective, and the trade-off in quality of service and increasing costs is starting to turn the tide back to the US.

    This woman made more sense in a two hour speech and Q&A session, than the moron now in the White House has in his entire public life.

    I just watched the whole speech over at C4P and anyone who calls Sarah Palin stupid is beyond all reason. I keep waiting for her to give some speech somewhere that will give even a hint of her lack of intelligence or poise or a grasp of an issue. Hasn’t happened yet. Palin is, without any doubt in my mind, the best public speaker in politics today. She’s a natural. She speaks from her values and beliefs and her words just roll off her tongue without any effort or affectation because I believe she believes every single word she says.

    While the media and her detractors will find something in that speech to denigrate, there is no doubt that China got her message loud and clear. How refreshing was it to hear her stand up to them in a way a true American leader should. How quickly we’ve forgotten what it was like to have a true, strong, leader.

    I just finished watching Sarah Palin in India at the Conclave. She didn’t dodge any questions and her answers were direct, truthful and complete. Then I voted on the Republican Straw Poll and she got my vote. But then I would have voted for her anyway.

    Palin does not disappoint. She is the U.S. National Comedy Bicycle. She will never be good enough to be POTUS. She’s fleecing her followers for all the money she can get. If you haven’t yet figured out her bottom line, it is money, power, and payback.

      Once a again true to form for a “Palingater”. The icon and screen name are even more ironic than you can fathom. All style and no substance. Good bye Troll.

    I really do hope Mrs Palin would run for President. But first she will have to win the Republican nomination. If she is able to accomplish this feat, which is very unlikely, she will have to win over 50% of the U.S. population as well as a majority of the Electoral College votes. The Christian Science Monitor in a article on Mrs Palin reports that a “poll in December found that 59 percent of all likely voters would not consider voting for her for president.” Would not consider! In other words, Mrs Palin is wasting our time, but growing quite wealthy in the process.

    She lost the election because the top of the [GOP] ticket was not the best solution for the country’s problems and the second in the ticket [the quitter from AK] is dumb as a pile of bricks.

  • Hmm
