Sarah Palin Says “It’s Time A Woman Became President of the United States”
gateway pundit ^ | 3/19/2011 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/19/2011 10:18:33 AM PDT by unseen1

Sarah Palin is the first Republican leader to speak at the event in New Delhi. Sarah was invited to speak on her Vision for America.

Today’s tea party is a strong and vibrant movement in the US. The former VP candidate is emphasizing energy challenges. “We all face energy challenges in the international arena.” ENERGY is the key. My vision for a free and prosperous America involves an emphasis on energy.

On green energy– I am in favor of an “all of the above approach” to energy. Unfortunately, though some have stymied responsible drilling. It means we continue to transfer hundreds of millions of American dollars to foreign regimes. Everything is touched.

As government locks up land – they try to tell us that green jobs are our future. “A recent British study found that for every green job, 4 jobs were lost.” This is social engineering.

Americans can tap into our own natural resources. And natural gas- green and efficient. Natural gas is an ideal “bridge fuel” to the future. It’s a false fairy tale for government to interfere and for Americans to believe that we don’t need oil and gas.

“Big government ideas are once again being thrown into the ash heap of history – but they’re not going quietly.”

The future lies with us. There are few limits to what India and America can do together. We both want to expand trade and investment with allies.

It is our people who are driving this relationship.

Our ties and our bonds are deep. They’re not driven by a free people and a free markets not by conclaves.

We will lead because we are on the side of people to make decisions for themselves. We are on the side of religious tolerance and women’s rights. I admire India’s history of strong women leaders.

I supported South Carolina’s first Indian governor Nikki Haley. I support the tea party a vibrant and growing movement.

On social media- We should look at this as an opportunity to advance freedom.

This hunger for freedom is not just American. We have such a connection. Half a world apart but connected by this. We can lead by example.

On trade with India– Sarah Palin: We are thankful for the free trade agreements throughout the world.

On foreign policy- Sarah Palin: There would have been more decisiveness. We have a rich tradition on being on the side of those who seek freedom. “Less dithering and more decisiveness.”

On China- Sarah Palin: China has a choice. We need to be sure and India needs to be sure that we are clear with their expectations… We say they manipulate their currency. They accuse us of the same. …What’s with the military buildup? We have concerns… Again we look forward to see them making the right choice.

On the tea party movement- Sarah Palin: The tea party patriots just want the Constitution to be followed. It’s smaller smarter government. It’s too good to have a leader.

On campaigning for VP- Sarah Palin: You can’t really trust the media. You have to have the boldness and courage of setting the record straight. Especially when they have made their choice… I’m not just going to sit back and take it. I’ve learned you can’t just trust the media to set the record straight. Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes. I don’t play the victim card when they do choose to set the election straight.

On losing election- Sarah Palin: Obama was a change agent. Question: But so were you. Sarah Palin: But I wasn’t on the top of the ticket.

Sarah Palin: It’s time a woman became president of the United States of America. (Applause)

Sarah Palin: I am a strong supporter of peace through strength… If we want a more peaceful world India and America must work more closely together.

Her role in Republican Party- Sarah Palin: I’m pretty independent and some people don’t like that… I’m a mom and I just don’t have the time to play some of the games the guys want to play.

On reviving American economy- Sarah Palin: It’s common sense free market principles. Cutting spending.

Last question – Will you husband be called the first man? Sarah Palin: First dude.

Closing statement: When I was waiting for your speech I was talking to an official and he said he was looking forward to her speech. I asked him why and he said, “Because Sarah Palin is a a friend of India.”

"Oh yes. Let's elect a woman to be POTUS simply because "It's time". "

EXACTLY. This is one of the reason, and arguably the biggest reason we're stuck with Obama; Too many people thought it "was time" for a black president.

I hate identity politics, and I especially loathe identity politics when practiced by allegedly conservative politicians.

Several quotes to be taken from the speech and especially in the Q&A afterwards. The one that stood out and will obviously leave a mark on Boehner and his buddies is;

"I’ve learned you can’t just trust the media to set the record straight. Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes."

All together now, boom, there it is, boom, there it is!

We need a woman. Any woman. That is all that matters.

Making sex a qualification, legitimizes making it a disqualification.

No, it isn’t Sarah.

It’s time for a conservative American patriot to be president.

The genetalia of said person isn’t important.

I think I’ll be looking elsewhere.

I’m tired of typical stupidity such as this.

Two things.

First, the author doesnt seem to quote her, it looks more like summaries. So until someone shows a quote where she said it, I wont hold it against her.

Second, if the conservative movement devolves into identity politics and doing things for the sake of something other than protecting the Constitution, then it will not survive as a movement.

No, I kind of agree -- but we shouldn't stop there if we're going to play these games. Let's elect a "hot-looking woman of Asian extraction because it's time."

I nominate Michelle Malkin.

Wow.

“You have to have the boldness and courage of setting the record straight. Especially when they have made their choice… I’m not just going to sit back and take it. I’ve learned you can’t just trust the media to set the record straight. Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes.

No more of Bush’s hiding from the media misdirection.

I’m all in.

“It’s Time A Woman Became President of the United States”

That's what Hillary thought would get her elected.

The last thing Sarah Palin needs to do is remind anyone that she is a woman. I like it better when she goes after the issues and not hide behind her genre. That's what liberals do.

Very good statement by Sarah, especially in India where they know strong women leaders like Indira Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.

This is an excellent move by Sarah to visit the two countries who along with the US face Islamic terrorism. The contacts she makes here will be invaluable when she becomes President.

I bet Obama is seething with jealousy.

Uh, no Sarah. As much as I like her, this is a ridiculous statement. What it is time for is a person who is serious about righting this sinking ship of a country and who will not take crap from the leftists/marxists in this country (many in the halls of congress). It’s time to treat shady politicians with equal application of the law and measuring these individuals for orange jumpsuits and a proper fit while everything said pol was involved with gets defunded. It’s time to turn off the fed reserve spigot and without doubt it is a time to treat American citizens equally and knock off the “special interest” group thinking. There is NO right to absolute happiness, only the right to pursue happiness WITHOUT infringing on another citizens liberty.

That, Sarah, is just a partial of “what it is time for”.

You know this, how? Are you clairvoyant? The story says the line was met with "applause". It says nothing about "laughter".

I'm assuming she was perfectly serious, until someone proves otherwise.

Did you miss the "quotes" in the headline? The story itself uses quotation marks around the statement in the article itself. It self-evidently quotes her.

I’m quite certain that she is, but it doesn’t matter.

What if I go out there and say it’s time for a white guy to be president?

These are division politics.

It is NOT time for a woman to be president. it IS time for a patriotic american ot be president. If that patriot happens ot be a woman, then fine.

But I ain’t about to elect a person because they have ovaries.

Gimme a ****ing break...

I can’t remember the exact words, but she was responding to a question being asked by the interviewer who refrerred to a Hillary Clinton talking about the number of women leaders elected in Latin America. I no way did I sense that Palin said we need a woman president just because she was a woman.

She said it in response to a question, “Do you think a woman *can* become President of the United States?” I don’t remember the exact phrasing. She replied that being female isn’t an impediment and then said that. I’m female and would much rather have a man than a woman be President subject to the condition that he be the stronger candidate.

Obviously she thinks it’s time—she is planning to run. But she hasn’t declared and will get kicked off Fox prematurely if she speaks definitely now, so she needs to be coy as well.

She’s not talking about a female president quota—jeesh!

I agree. It was powerful statement in a country that understands powerful woman and the good they can bring to a country.

I do find it interesting that this comment by Gov Palin is exposing a lot of people to the real reason the PDSers don't like Palin..... Just the thought of a woman POTUs sends them into fits...

I agree with your input...The only woman whom I even considered was Jeane Kirkpatrick. No other woman impresses me as having ALL the qualities necessary for President.

Of course, that makes a case for Obama...you don't need any qualities...just money and a "specialized" voting base....aka...."ignorant"...

In the article, there are no quotation marks around that statement. She may have said it, but the author is being vague. The top points he makes are summaries of what she said, then he switches to quoting her without using quotes.

I searched online and this is the only author that I found who has her quoted as saying that. I would think a statement like that would be all over the media.

Now, she may have said it, but I wont comment on what she said until it is verified.

We need a Jeane Kirkpatrick in male or female form.

Jeane Kirkpatrick was very very articulate. I wish Sarah Palin would read up on her.

Palin has always thought like this. Here is a quote by her said during her VP announcement speech in 2008:

“I can’t begin this great effort without honoring the achievement of Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and of course, Hillary Clinton, who showed determination in her presidential campaign,” Palin said. “It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America. But it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.”

I didn’t like that then; I don’t like this now.
