Speaking in India, Sarah Palin Sure Sounds Like She’s Running for President


Gateway Pundit live blogged Sarah Palin’s keynote speech at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi this morning.

Here are a few items from the post-speech Q & A:

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 the tea party movement-
Sarah Palin: The tea party patriots just want the Constitution to be followed. It’s smaller smarter government. It’s too good to have a leader.

On campaigning for VP-
Sarah Palin: You can’t really trust the media. You have to have the boldness and courage of setting the record straight. Especially when they have made their choice… I’m not just going to sit back and take it. I’ve learned you can’t just trust the media to set the record straight. Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes. I don’t 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 wasn’t on the top of the ticket.

Sarah Palin: It’s 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: I’m pretty independent and some people don’t like that… I’m a mom and I just don’t have the time to play some of the games the guys want to play.

Last question – Will your husband be called the first man?
Sarah Palin: First dude.

Unlike Barack Obama, Sarah Palin didn’t have the coconuts removed from the trees before arriving, preferring to use them for target practice on the way into the auditorium.

Now it’s on to Israel and a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu.

This concludes today’s test of the PDS Incitement System.

Update: Nice Deb has video of the entire speech here.
