Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Says “It’s Time A Woman Became President of the United States”

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.
Todays 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. Its a false fairy tale for government to interfere and for Americans to believe that we dont need oil and gas.
Big government ideas are once again being thrown into the ash heap of history but theyre 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. Theyre 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 womens rights. I admire Indias history of strong women leaders.
I supported South Carolinas 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. Whats 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. Its smaller smarter government. Its too good to have a leader.
On campaigning for VP- Sarah Palin: You cant really trust the media. You have to have the boldness and courage of setting the record straight. Especially when they have made their choice Im not just going to sit back and take it. Ive learned you cant just trust the media to set the record straight. Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes. I dont 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 wasnt on the top of the ticket.
Sarah Palin: Its 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: Im pretty independent and some people dont like that Im a mom and I just dont have the time to play some of the games the guys want to play.
On reviving American economy- Sarah Palin: Its 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.
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.
Maybe it is time for the return of the Bull Moose Party,TDR started it when he was fed up with the repub.’s of his time!
What we need is a wise Latiino woman......s/
I was thinking the same thing the other day.
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.
Bill Clinton had boobies :)
I agree! That excludes a lot of even better candidates. I would LOVE to see Ann Coulter as President.
Yeah, the article is written so vague, I would want someone else to substantiate that she actually said that. And Im not even the biggest Palin supporter out there. But I would prefer to know the facts before I comment on whether someone is right or wrong.
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.
Another great presentation by Sarah Palin. The anti-Palin folks will seize on her ‘time for a woman president’ comment to bash her and justify their refusal to support her, citing ‘gender politics’. So be it, we all have our opinions. However, I’m pretty sure Sarah Palin said that with a big smile and hardly expects to be elected, much less nominated by a political party whose ‘leaders’ are hostile to her, based on her gender. Frankly, just as Obama’s race was a carefully avoided issue in 2008, Palin’s gender will also be an issue that will be ostensibly avoided while remaining a factor in the 2012 presidential election. My guess is that Palin’s female gender will hurt her a lot more than Obama’s mixed-race heritage may have hurt him. I also believe that with the nation and the world in turmoil and the ineffectiveness of Obama’s presidency and the sheer destructiveness of his socialist policies, Sarah Palin will emerge victorious in a contest between her and Barack Hussein Obama.
That is impossible. Latinos are guys :)
The issues is what Americans need to hear
Palin vs. Clinton in 2012!
Then look again. -->
Agreed, but when Palin said that often “Republicans have the fighting instincts of sheep” I don't thing she was referring to herself, Michele Bachmann, Jan Brewer or Susana Martinez.
Video of the Q&A session (about 30 minutes):
Not running. You look again.
