While Obama was out hobnobbing with the Hollywood celebrities Sarah Palin was talking about geopolitical events and macroeconomic trends in Las Vegas.
Only this short video clip has surfaced [so far] of Sarah Palin’s keynote address at Friday’s SALT conference in Las Vegas on Friday. Here she is going after the GSA, and all of the wasteful spending:
Palin opens her remarks at #SALT2012 “hello 1% more power to you.”
Palin at #SALT2012 “politicians are really crafty.”
Palin: Hillary was a better candidate than Obama, says Hillary understands private sector, credits balanced Clinton budget
Palin: “I don’t want to keep slamming the media, but I will.”
Palin: “too many young people are missing the boat on American exceptionalism.”
Palin: “tea party only just begun.”
Palin: “we will be just fine if we wrap our arms around American exceptionalism”
