Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate, told thousands of supporters Saturday enough is enough. It's time to stick up for the "little guy."
Foreclosures are high, stimulus packages are doing nothing to help the nation bounce back and the budget deficit keeps climbing, Palin said. Americans are out of work, and those with jobs are in fear of losing them, she said.
"Little guys across America ... and momma Grizzlies are growling," said Palin, a leader of the Tea Party political movement, wearing the signature red power suit and rimless glasses. "We're going to protect our cubs."
"There comes a moment in time, a moment we feel today ... when we have to say enough is enough. And Bakersfield, enough is enough. You can take it back."
In a nearly nonstop cheerleading speech where she continued rousing the crowd amid cheers, Palin slammed President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and others for "Obama Care" and demanded "restoration." She called for firings starting Nov. 2, Election Day.
"Are we better off now than we were when Barack Obama took office?" she asked the crowd, which responded with a loud, 'No!.....
......She talked about the "little man" who only wants a good job in his home town, but instead sees a country spending without asking, a bleak economic future, and borders that need protection.
Regarding local issues, Palin said California is rich with farm land, but a tiny fish is considered more important than thousands of Californians being fed, referring to the splittail fish at the center of Central Valley water controversy.
"I'm Alaskan, and I like my wildlife," she said. "But people are losing their farms, crops and livelihoods."
She asked why the "cocktail party" considers the Tea Party movement extreme.
"For believing in American exceptionalism?" Palin asked.
this is an excerpt.....thought I clicked the box...
The woman is absolutely brilliant. A Godsend. Kiss it goodbye, Hussein.
Brilliant. That's one of Sarah's strengths. She can boil down an issue, and shine a light on liberal hypocrisy with one phrase, better than anyone out there.
The "Cocktail Party" label is a MOAB dropped squarely on the ruling class. Just brilliant.
Yup, and that is why she absolutely terrifies the Left, and anyone who is a member of the Cocktail Party.
She went further and contrasted it with the Tea party who is for the little guy. She is going straight for the reagan voter....
“wearing the signature red power suit and rimless glasses”
A fine mental image to contrast with Obozo’s mom jeans and Micheles boob belts...
can you imagine this woman on the stump during the primaries...we will not need a bigger boat but a bigger dictionary
Hillbuzz is the one that came up with that...that is what they have been calling them for a long time.
I suspect she does read Hillbuzz.
Conference organizer George Martin, however, introduced Palin as “the next president of the United States.”
Wow, she needs to get the Trade Mark Register on this, Monday morning it will be the TALK of the TOWN and energize polls nationwide. Cool. The Cocktail Party has been TOO long in Washington DC
I think Limbaugh’s been using this for awhile...
All this talk about Sarah being polarizing or not being able to attract independents are straight out lies. I don't believe it for a second, and I don't believe the manufactured polls that continuously say she's would get wiped out if she is the nominee.
Barring a natural catastrophe to her state, or a tragedy within her immediate family, Governor Palin is running for President.
Sarah Palin is the best retail politician of the 21st Century, so far.
first I heard of it if so I stand corrected. Most often I hear Rush use it in the form “the people in DC want to attend the cocktail parties”.......either way first national politican that I have heard use it...
“The Tea Party versus the Cocktail Party.”
The woman is a genius. She has a metaphor for every situation. And each one is sharper than the one before it.
Conference organizer George Martin, however, introduced Palin as the next president of the United States.
