Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin outlined her disdain for Washington political culture in a speech Saturday morning, denouncing Democrats’ “religious faith in the power of government” and calling D.C. a “hot mess.”

“The problem is government grown so big that it intrudes into every aspect of our lives. It’s grown so arrogant that it thinks we work for it instead of it works for us,” she said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in D.C. “The problem is, that these politicos with these religious faith in the power of government and elitist disdain for the rights of people … the scandals infecting this city, they are a symptom of a bigger disease.”

Palin spoke on the final day of the three-day gathering of social conservatives, a crowd by which she’s always been well-received.

Too many Democrat Christians seem to worship Caesar.

Any one who thinks Sarah has tossed in the towel
is not paying attention.

This is just the beginning...

She’s faithful to the Lord and is waiting for the Lord to tell her it’s time to move. And, I’m sure, asking the Lord to show her how she can share the Love.

This was a good presentation by her. It was nice to see her address issues dear to us, and she did a good job touching on a number of them.

“...religious faith” is too soft a term, for the lib-dem commies. Messianic obsession is more apt.

If we are ready to give glory and gratitude to the Lord for any victory He grants, then the Lord may well be ready to act. He’s not going to rub our noses in our failures for shames, but He does insist we keep an open ear to learn lessons from Him.

As for the United States’ involvement in conflicts in the Middle East, Palin said until the country has a president “who knows what they’re doing, I say let Allah sort it out.”

This woman reads my mind.

Liberal idea of following up on failure: double down on what you did.

“hot mess” = “soccer mom”?

Anything Palin says annoys the left no end. Let’s make this the new meme.

In the military, this is called reinforcing failure,
and is to be avoided at all costs.

This not to be confused with the surge which was
the correct response at it proved but trust the
liberals to throw it all away and manage to pull
a strategic disaster from a tactical success.

We see Obamao and Biden doing this constantly, most
recently with gun control.

Democrats’ “religious faith in the power of government” and calling D.C. a “hot mess.”

Sarah Palin gets it right.

Government is the God of democrats.

government is too big and is the problems as the IRS persecution of conservatives to rig the election for Obama and the democrats/socialists in the Senate shows.

Run for President Sarah Palin.Fox hired her so she wouldn't run
