Mixed Views as Sarah Palin Leaves India
Forbes ^ | March 20, 2011 | Kenneth Rapoza

Posted on 03/20/2011 8:21:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin left India on Sunday and word on the street is that she is “very smart” and “I’d go to see her speak anywhere” or…”she is very dumb” and “no one cares about Sarah Palin,” according to the Youtube page of India Reloaded, here, interviewing the locals as Palin lives Asia’s biggest democracy.

Palin praised India for its progress and called for stronger US and India ties. She was the Saturday evening dinner keynote speaker at the India Today Conclave , a gathering of political and business leaders that took place in New Delhi Friday and Saturday.

During her address, Palin told the mostly Indian nationals in attendance that US and Indian ties run deep. “They are driven by free people and free markets and not just by political summits,” she said, according to India Today. She asserted that Indo-US relations were a bipartisan project that no longer depended on the occupant of the White House.

“Relations between India and the US are key to our world relations, regardless of who is president,” Palin said, adding, “America has long been famous for (its) rags-to-riches story. Today, India too has the same story. India is no longer a struggling economy.”

Palin was her also usua catch-phrasey self, with terms like “more decisiveness, less dithering”, and attacked the mainstream media, to a round of applause, according to people at the Conclave. Asked why her team lost the 2008 elections, she said it was because of the media, quickly clarifying that Barack Obama came better off as an “agent of change”.

I would like to think that if either Palin or Michele Bachmann became president that she would govern in much the same way that Margaret Thatcher did with England.

Peace through strength.

Sounds like a lot of conservatives and RINOs were in attendance.

Ok having read the rest of the article I take that back.. I think a slightly retarded monkey is smarter than this reporter...so I don't even want to compare Sarah to him...

But according to India Today, she reiterated once again that the time had come for a woman to become president of the US President.

Of all the 300 some million Americans Sarah Palin was asked to represent the USA by this group. Speaks for itself.

From the write up. It is clear the writer didn't listen to the speech. the fact that the writer had to go to youtube comments to get some nasty quotes tells anyone that wants to pay attention that Gov Palin hit a homerun.

they are sputtering trying to find something anything to slant the story negative.

Hell even the Times, NYT and WAPO had to admit Gov Palin did very well....

It has nothing to do with what Indian’s think of Palin, but I could vote for her as President with no hesitation.

Sorry “Pissant”.

If she were to decide not to run, that is OK too. She might find another position that she could be more effective in. That would be OK too.

Why comment on comments?

People don’t react to Mrs. Palin based on her (statements, beliefs, expression, presentation, etc.). They react to her based on his/her political agenda.

She may be the most true political divining rod in history:

Ask someone what he/she thinks about Mrs. Palin and the answer reveals his/her entire political thinking.

YouTube has a statistics button under the video to show where most viewers are from. That itself will give a clue as to whether the comments were made by Americans or by Indians.

If the author had to look at YouTube comments to compose this article, the credibility of the piece unavoidably takes a nose-dive.

Thatcher also permanently broke the political might of the British labor unions.

And of course Obama never gets “mixed” reviews anywhere. He is universally loved. Just ask the press. They cover for him and kiss his backside up and down.

Don’t apologize to Pissant. He got the well-deserved hammer.

I went to the link & read Kenneth Rapoza’s Profile!! He comes across as a goofy young liberal.

"attacked the mainstream media"
Always a crowd pleaser. Turnabout's fair play too.

"no one cares about Sarah Palin," according to the Youtube page of India Reloaded
Sure. Right. That's what they all say right before they start foaming at the mouth and ranting.

I would have trusted these interviews are genuine if they asked name of people and what they do. Not some call center doing work for democrats. People asked them to say these thing and they are doing. Because ever one is from same area. Shot are taken from different direction.

All interviews are taken in Connaught Place, New Delhi. All are from same street. It is Kasturba Gandhi Marg. These are fake interviews. 1000% sure.

India Reloaded would be India’s equal to Palingates. If you have to go there to find criticism, you may assume the media there had none.

Just curious how Kenneth is writing about Palin as if he is in India, while he is writing about what obama is doing in Brazil at the same time....?

Rapoza is a moron. He’s been stepping in it the last few weeks as he excuses The IE Bank, Ø and Soros pushing drilling in Brazil instead of the U.S. I don’t know what happened to Forbes. Totally downhill.

My favorite line in the article which shows where this person’s brain is triggered:

“As an aside, my favorite speaker on the list was Bollywood leading man Shah Rukh Khan. He was described as having six pack abs and his job listing was described as “superstar.”

A day or two ago. He made one too many crude remarks about Mrs. Palin and got the chop.

“no one cares about Sarah Palin,”

23,300,000 Google hits for Sarah Palin [and 5,447 news articles on Google News Search in just the past day] confirm this. It looks like almost all of them verify the meme that no one cares about Sarah Palin.
