Governor Palin to Reportedly Make an October Speech in South Korea
C4P ^ | 8-31-2011 | Whitney Pitcher

By Whitney Pitcher (C4P):

Governor Palin will reportedly make a speech in South Korea in October. This will mark the third trip to Asia in just over two years for the Governor. She delivered two weighty policy speeches in her previous trips: one at a business convention in Hong Kong in September of 2009 and in India this past spring as well focusing on foreign, energy and economic policies. This upcoming speech seems to be another policy heavy speech as well.

This is just breaking, she could esily make side trip to multiple countries (China, Japan, Taiwan, etc.,). All in good time.

Korea is an emerging “little tiger” and a key ally.

One of their top potential Presidential candidates in S. Korea is a woman named Park Geun Hye, the daughter of a former President. She’s also in the more conservative party of the two main ones.

Interesting. Thanks for the info.

If she went to Taiwan and skipped China, they’d really go crazy.

S. Korea is a mini-superpower and rising in economic and cultural stature by the day. Most importantly, it is a powerful spiritual force in the world with more global missionaries hailing from S. Korea these days than any other country in the world!!!

It is also strategically important with regard to its proximity to China and North Korea.

Would a presidential candidate be permitted to be paid for a speech?

A domestic policy speech would make more sense than going to South Korea for the third time in 2 years. Sarah isn’t going to ever beat Obama of even others in the GOP field on foreign policy, and if she’s doing it because of the media playing up her harmless “North Korean allies” speech, she can’t win that battle.

Actually, I disagree.

One of Palin’s weaknesses (perceived or real - your call) has always been foreign policy. I think the lady is being as smart as usual here.

Wife and I have livestreamed several South Korean movies from Netflix over the last month.

Their sense of humor is great and they sure don't fit the norm for Asiatics. In the movies at least, the people appear closer to Americans than people of any other country have observed as of late. Could be they are made with an eye toward the American market, but intereresting all the same.

My first thought is that she’s obviously not running, then. But, who knows? The only thing I’m certain of is that her coyness is annoying the crap out of me. And I was once a huge fan.

All I can say is that those South Korean Airlines commercials are absorbing.

I don't understand them, but I watch them ...

She’ll be fine as long as she doesn’t call them “our North Korean allies” again.

Looking over the article to see if this is a paid speech....nope...don’t see it. Can you point it out please?

I don’t know if it’s a paid speech or not. If I had to guess I would say that it is. Can’t picture her going to Korea to give a speech for free.

I am more curious, in general, if a declared candidate could receive speaking fees.
