Sarah Palin at SALT Conference: “Hello One Percent! More Power to Ya!”
A Time For Choosing ^ | May 12, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson

Posted on 05/12/2012 3:57:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

While Obama was out hobnobbing with the Hollywood celebrities Sarah Palin was talking about geopolitical events and macroeconomic trends in Las Vegas.

Only this short video clip has surfaced [so far] of Sarah Palin’s keynote address at Friday’s SALT conference in Las Vegas on Friday. Here she is going after the GSA, and all of the wasteful spending:

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Some bloggers including Bailey McCann, the editor and publisher of CivSource live tweeted the event.

From McCann:

Palin opens her remarks at #SALT2012 “hello 1% more power to you.”

Palin at #SALT2012 “politicians are really crafty.“

Palin: Hillary was a better candidate than Obama, says Hillary understands private sector, credits balanced Clinton budget

Palin: “I don’t want to keep slamming the media, but I will.”

Palin: “too many young people are missing the boat on American exceptionalism.”

Palin: “tea party only just begun.”

Palin: “we will be just fine if we wrap our arms around American exceptionalism”

Lawrence Delevingne staff hedge fund writer for AR Magazine:

Sarah Palin at #SALT2012: Private industry conference in Vegas great; GSA paid junkets with mind readers less so.

Sarah Palin at #SALT2012: Government is out of control and “dangerous” – govt “crucifies” economic driving businesses.

Palin boosts domestic energy production – “why would anyone oppose this?”

Palin at #SALT2012: Obama doesn’t have an energy policy, only a speech. He “strangles” resource development – “a none of the above approach“

Palin at #SALT2012: Shame on Congress and White House for going years without a budget – debts are too high to delay.

Palin at #SALT2012: politicians in Alaska liked to tie pork to public safety and make it “for the children” – I said no to cut spending

Palin at #SALT2012: The permanent political class uses “Enron like” tricks to spend unsustainably, increase debt.

Palin compares Titanic to out of control US spending – “there is no such thing as an unsinkable ship or too big to fail” at #SALT2012

“You are the unsung heroes of American greatness…our prosperity depends on you” – Palin at #SALT2012

God blessed US with a great system of capitalism and entrepreneurs to build the country -Palin at #SALT2012

Palin at #SALT2012: Hillary Clinton would have been better than Obama, who was protected by “lamestream” media

Palin at #SALT2012: I prayed before debate with VP Joe Biden. “It’s ok to pray to win, right?“

“Many in the media lie” says Palin at #SALT2012

Palin at #SALT2012: I would have taken an earlier, more consistent stand with Arab Spring freedom fighters compared to Obama.

Palin at #SALT2012: Tea party has redefined American politics – “just follow the constitution!” – “it has only just begun“

Palin at #SALT2012: I have no social life outside of family – just hunting and fishing and running.

Palin at #SALT2012: we will be alright as a country – just need to live up to Reagan ideal of a “shining city on a hill“

Of course, the CNBC business reporter, Jeff Cox, tweeted about what was really important:

Sarah Palin is really, really tan #SALT2012

It’s a real mystery why no one takes anyone at NBC’s family of news organizations seriously.

If more video surfaces, I’ll post it.

This is a HUGE honor for her. She’s been in major speaking events in China, India, Israel and other areas. If she was supposedly done and “over”, she would not be getting these invites.

As could I. I have never been emotionally wrecked because a certain politician declined to run for the presidency, but I was when Sarah walked from the contest. I really thought that she would be this era's Reagan.

Perhaps in time, she still will be.

You might have the opportunity to vote her in as energy secretary.........

Which would be the perfect platform to jump up the electoral ladder if she wants to do that political office stuff again.

I'm not ashamed to admit it...I choked up and got something in my eye, the night I got the news. That's how convinced I was that she was the one who would steer our country back from the brink of destruction.

Even now, I feel that she should be our 45th president. I just don't see another person out there who's got the right combination of skills, courage, experience, and love of country, to get the job done.

When I heard her on Mark Levin that October evening, I was pretty down about it as well.

I tried to convince myself that someone would emerge from the wreckage and carry the conservative flag, but when I saw the cockiness return to Obama’s strut I knew that HE KNEW that he had dodged one heckuva bullet.

I think it’s pretty much child’s play for him now. I hope that I’m wrong, even though I am not at all enamored with Romney.

Oh, no doubt about it. In fact, I perceived that the political establishment on both sides heaved and enormous sigh of relief when she walked away.

Obama's not out of the woods, though, by any means. Did you see the Rasmussen poll today? Romney's beating Obama 50% to 43%. Even Jimmy Carter was doing better at this point, in 1980.

Nor are we. Together, the ruling class has 93% of the prospective votes.

Perhaps, but only in the presidential category. The down ticket races will be a whole 'nother matter.

” The down ticket races will be a whole ‘nother matter.”

Fair enough. Even if we don’t win the Senate, it will almost certainly be a much more conservative body than in the past. The results in Indiana and Nebraska are heartening.
