Skip to comments.Sarah Palin is the Most Powerful Female Politician in the World

If one doubted Sarah Palin wields great power by virtue of her charisma and persona, that notion was laid to rest during her speech at the CPAC convention when she had the overflow audience on their feet numerous times.
None of the presidential candidates, least of all front-runner Mitt Romney, got anywhere near that warm of reception. Newt Gingrich, who delivered a classic speech filled with ideas, came closest. But Gingrich has faltered somewhat in his presidential run. Romney still won the CPAC straw poll, likely because he filled the venue with enough of his supporters to pull off a plurality win.
Speaking of Romney, according to Politico, Palin had a warning. Palin and hence conservatives in general are not convinced of his authentic right wing credentials. The Romney campaign is doubtless taking note. It has to try harder to close the deal, to prove the Romney of Massachusetts is in the past and Romney the candidate has grown and evolved rightward. If he cannot do this, he will not be president.
Palin has proven herself the most powerful female politician in the world. Angela Merkel runs a country and has a little influence in Europe. Hillary Clinton's name used to be on the lips of people in the same sentence as "president of the United States." But no one else can speak and shake the corridors of power to the foundation as can Palin
From inveighing against "death panels" in Obamacare to crony capitalism in Washington, Palin has shaped the political agenda is more profound ways that one would imagine a private citizen who has the bottom half of a failed presidential campaign who was hounded out of office could achieve.
And, like Ronald Reagan before her, Palin has the power to drive a certain type of person insane....

There are those who use the term Republican or Democrat as a facade. Behind that facade they sometimes use another facade, progressive or liberal. They do this to hide their agenda. They also do this because they are a very small number of extremely radical communist/socialists. This group has spent a long time trying to gain power, three and four generations for some. They now control both parties, presenting their choices who they want us to vote for. Now stop and consider that they want you and others to think that Palin is too conservative. Compared to what they want you are right, she is way too conservative. For what “we the people” want she is nearly perfect. Please give this some thought.
Draft Sarah Palin!!!
No kidding. I'll bet not too many people back around 9/11/2001 would have guessed that we would have a muslim communist for president this few years later.
You’re right and even when he got his damn party’s nomination, I still didn’t think anyone with THAT name would win election! Idiot voters.
Howdy Onyx, pls add me to your Sarah Palin ping list.
No more need be said.
Like her and liked what she said but here comes the blasphemy: oh that shrill voice.
We need to boot the communist cadre infiltrators out of the Republican Party. Sarah is the only one who can do this.
I wish she was living in Australia, she would turn Oz into a model and well respected superpower.
‘________a Muslim communist for president this few years later.
Totally agree - my words exactly. Absolutely flabbergasted. And right after GWB, the president during 9-11.
It's a hell of a lot easier to swoop down from the mountain top and deliver twenty minutes of red meat sound bites to a room full of fans, then fly away home than it is to actually commit to the daily grind of an exhaustive months-long campaign that requires genuine policy statements on a wide range of crucial subjects that will be picked at, dissected, critiqued and even ridiculed at every level by friend and foe.
She has spent most of her life in the private sector. A couple of terms as Mayor and Governor shouldn't tar one as politican.
The rest of the story seems spot on.
I find it interesting that the audience was so raucous even though it was filled with Romneybots and Paulistas.
