Video: Sarah Palin’s Speech in India

The Washington Post reported that Palin, on her first trip to India, said she is still mulling over a 2012 run.

Speaking to a hand-picked, elite audience of Indian business tycoons, lawmakers, Bollywood stars, lobbyists and socialites at a packed media conference in New Delhi, Palin deftly handled the question on everyone’s minds: whether she would throw her hat in the ring in 2012.

“I am thinking about it,” said Palin, who fielded at least three questions on the subject. “I don’t think there needs to be a rush . . . I want to find out who else is going to put their name forward in service.”

This speech has got very high marks from Jim Hoft, who posted the live-stream at Gateway Pundit.

I’m just now getting around to listening to it, and  it does sound strong:

If you remember, liberal pundits, (at Obama’s beckoning), lamely tried  to label Obama’s  State of the Union speech, as “Reaganesque”. Of course, it was nothing of the sort. It was the usual boring, cynical,  insincere pack of Obamalies and hopeytales.

Sarah Palin, however, without even trying – simply by being who she is – fit’s the bill.

UPDATE:

The Hill has more news on Palin in India:

When asked about the greatest lessons she learned from 2008, Palin did not mention the friction between McCain’s camp and hers. Instead she said the experience informed her public relations strategy.

“One thing I learned is that you cannot trust the mainstream media to accurately report on [your record and accomplishments],” she said. “You have to have the boldness, the courage to set the record straight yourself.”

She even accused Republicans of not defending their records vigorously enough.

“Too often, Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes,” she said. When it comes to correcting the record, “I will put my foot down.

Rebutting a criticism often used against her, Palin said, “It’s not victimization, I’m not playing the victim card.

She’s been criticized on both sides for sticking up for herself – most recently on the Republican side, by  Roger Ailes.

  2. Yes, Mike, because I’m sure “Teh Won” is such an intellectual heavyweight. I mean, it takes smarts to refuse to drill for oil in your own back yard while buying it at a higher price from some country far away.

  3. Sarah Palin has me thinking of Wayne Gretzky during his glory years. Gretzky’s speed, grace, and deceptively powerful shot utterly flummoxed opposing defensemen and goaltenders throughout the NHL. They couldn’t stop him no matter what they did. Worse, he had real flair: style and grace both on and off the ice. He was, in short, the gentleman superstar we get about once a decade.

    Palin is the Wayne Gretzky of politics. She scores effortlessly, without seeming to try. And she does it with an unassuming grace the cynical “professional” pols can’t match. She drives it all home by not giving a damn what anyone thinks of her, projects onto her, or predicts about her.

    We need this woman. She might have arrived just in time.

  5. She was good but the Q & A with the Indian host exemplified the typical Indian (and basically every non-American’s) view………that being, IMMIGRATION and OUTSOURCING. Indians are obsessed with bringing more and more US firms to India and pushing the US to allow more and more Indians to immigrate to the US, to take jobs here.

    This is all globalist/internationalist “liberalism” (with a small “l”).

    Two things are nneded to turn around the US:
    1) Develop all forms of domestic energy resources.
    2) Lower all forms of immigration for ten years.

  24. As for Palin’s policy ideas. She’s written extensively about policy on a host of topics on her FB page, and elsewhere. Obviously, if you’re going to rely on the left-wing media for your news, instead of looking for yourself, you’re going to get the idea that she has absolutely, positively no ideas of her own at all- nope, she’s completely retarded. (getting back to the point about her unfair treatment in the media).
