I had the pleasure of attending the Winning America Back Conference in Independence Missouri, today, and what a great time that was.
My husband bought VIP tickets, which included seats up front, a reception, and the opportunity to meet Sarah Palin, and have our pictures taken with her. Sarah is just a sweet, and gracious in person as you could possibly imagine, as was her husband Todd, who casually chatted with my hubby.
Lester interviewed Stephen Broden, a black Pastor running for the 30th Congressional District in TX:
and then there was the hardest working blogger in blog-business – Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit:
His posts from the conference:
Out in the hallway hawking books, was Kansas City native and writer, Jack Cashill.
Fred and Jeri Thompson were among the first speakers of the day.
Fred had some memorable one liners in his speech, which I tweeted:
the potus said we’re still a superpower whether we like it or not… Well mr president – we like it!
When asked about what he thinks about Michael Steele leading the repub party, Thompson says, I don’t think much about him
on immigration- Harry Reid desperate because he knows he’s going to have to go back to searchight and get a real job
How much is too much? Thompson: whatever Obama is making is too much
the president needs to inform himself as to what is in the immigration bill.
Kobach: there seems to be this tendency among the chattering classes not to read the bills.
AZ is 3 for 3 on court challenges of immigration bills…will soon be 4 for 4
he loves these events because it drives media pp crazy!
he understands the media’s confusion- we’re not demanding anything…we just want to be left alone.
Musician, Jon David , performed a patriotic tune, American Heart, before Sarah Palin’s speech:
I’ll have the Palin speech up, tomorrow, hopefully.
