Sarah Palin will make her first speech out of North America when she addresses over a thousand investors in Hong Kong. Her speech will cover many topics, including current events/affairs and global economics.

Quite interesting, really, to see Palin in Hong Kong.... any fellow Kongers going to show up for this??

I don't think any of us will know until her entire 80 minute speech is publicised. Here is a little bit more on what she said. It all seems logical and well thought out. Apparently it was well delivered, too.

If that is the case then why would he embarrass not only himself but Paterson by doing something as drastic and unprecedented as asking a sitting governor not to seek re-election and then snubbing him in Albany? Only to have his power grab shoved right back at him. Hmmm, doesn't seem so petty.

The only one who's going to be embarrassed is Paterson, when he loses to Cuomo in the Democratic primary by 30 points. Obama wasn't making a power grab, he was pointing out the obvious (to everyone except Paterson) and suggesting that Paterson might not want to waste his and the party's time.

She resigned, as she was legally entitled to do, an morally entitled to do to save her family even more expense than it was already incurring thanks to the leftists that filed one suit after another in which Alaska law does not cover her defense. So are you saying as a private citizen none of us has a right to protest? After she made the tweet did she go on a public speaking campaign, make commercials, or in any way promote her view? No, yet guess what, in the end Congress and the President had to cave in and agree to change the provision she was referring too. So who won that debate? Man that must rankle eh?

No, it doesn't - gubernatorial experience, particularly in a small state, doesn't give any experience in foreign policy, or in how to get your legislation through the US Congress. And she didn't even finish one term! She quit! Great "experience"...

Wow, right up there with calling GWB a "fascist"...do you even know what a Marxist is? You could certainly call Obama a "liberal", maybe even a "socialist", but he's no more a Marxist than Palin is a fascist. (And yes, I've heard the far left call her that, and it's not fair either.)

Don't get me wrong, I don't think Obama's resume was strong enough either, and I agreed with Geraldine Ferraro when she said, in effect, that he would not have been a serious contender for the Democratic nomination with the same experience if he was white. However, he has a stronger background than Palin. That's not saying much...

Quoting DXing (Reply 43):
Nope, I said before he was elected that his lack of experience, both executive, and legislative, would be his biggest problem and so far I've been proven right. If he is not getting rolled by the right he is getting rolled by his own party members in the form of Pelosi and Reid.

Agreed, and even my most ardent Democrat friends said the same thing - that the Democratic Party leadership in Congress was going to go its own way and steamroll him, just like they did Jimmy Carter (who probably deserved to be steamrolled, but that's another thread.)

I think you are engaging in willful self delusion in trying to characterize her as a private citizen since it ignores the elephant in the room, namely this is an obvious attempt for her to be able to claim later that she gave major policy speeches internationally so she can patch up her lack of foreign affairs experience if she makes another run for the Whitehouse. So she is behaving like a future candidate - as she has been doing for quite a while - and therefore is not a private citizen in the normal sense.

Quoting DXing (Reply 61):

Look in the mirror. You never, ever, miss an opportunity to cast slurs at the president. You have absolutely no basis for criticizing others.

As for fearing her? I sort of do since I'd like to see intelligent candidates (from the Right or Left) competing for the White House - not ones with boorish and one-dimensional perspectives. And yes, I do hold considerable contempt for most politicians - both Democrats and Republicans for this reason.

If you don't discipline yourself to stick to the point, and avoid dragging in whatever irrelevant issue you feel allows you to score points or get a dig in against Obama, you shouldn't expect to be taken seriously.

And the notion that Palin is not engaging in prep work for future political ambitions is just not credible. She had barely abandoned her office when she weighed in on the Death Panel rubbish.

Palin announced at the same time she was resigning that in part she was going to lend her persona to help campaign and to help like minded individuals get elected to office. In the course of that a PAC is almost a necessity to satisfy FEC requirements for political donations and election law. Starting a PAC does not mean that you cannot be a private citizen nor does it require you to be a public figure.

You have an amazing ability to respond to counter-points with off-topic slurs that beat up on the president.  Yeah sure

To continue the sidebar for a moment (don't worry, I'll get back to the main topic in a moment...)

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 75):
Well, without hijacking this thread, why does't he produce his LONG FORM birth certificate? The short form means nothing. As for him being a punk, I forgot to add druggy punk. He said so himself.

The law of Hawaii defines the "short form" as the official response to any birth certificate query, it constitutes legal certification of his birth in Hawaii. Many states now follow this practice. So far there doesn't seem to be any actual proof that he was born somewhere else.

And as for "druggy punk", George W. Bush admitted to cocaine use as well. Who cares? Many people commit "youthful indiscretions" and go on to successful careers (or at least rise to high office.)

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 75):

–noun 1. an adherent of Karl Marx or his theories.

–adjective 2. of Karl Marx or his theories.
Marx·ist (märk'sĭst)
n.
One that believes in or follows the ideas of Marx and Engels.

Cool, you can use a dictionary.

But you know perfectly well what I meant: do you have any actual understanding of the ideas of Marx and Engels? An understanding that would allow you to draw the conclusion that Obama and/or Pelosi are actually Marxists? Can you provide an actual example of an Obama policy position that is derived from Marxism?

And I'd throw the same question (substituting "fascism' for "Marxism") at twits like this moron who called Palin a "lipstick fascist."

And now, back to Palin and Hong Kong:

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 75):
When does a compaign for a US office begin in Hong Kong? She cannot take money from them for her "campaign", that's illegal.

The general consensus, from what I've seen on the Internet (both left and right) is that the Hong Kong speech is important in that Palin is now trying to start building international credentials, an important step if she's serious about a 2012 presidential run.

The speech seems to have gone quite well.

And she could legally solicit donations from Americans in the audience, there were many there. But the purpose of this speech was not fund-raising.

Quoting AGM100 (Reply 79):
I do not support her going to Hong Kong and speaking of American politics. It is a bad signal , didn't support Clinton doing it , Gore doing it and I don't support he doing it.

Have to disagree - it's very common for politicians, both before and after being in office, to speak of American politics to international audiences. It helps the foreign audience put American politics in context outside the media, and helps the audience get to know possible future American leaders. Foreign politicians commonly come to the US to address various groups as well.

If your'e so upset about where politicians are born why not look into Mcain's birthplace of Panama ?



Obama has been a great success as President and is just getting started despite a massive, concerted effort by the right.

I saw it on the local news here.

The press was kept at bay by the organizers of the event. Very little is known about what has been said. The only footage seen on TV was a grainy one taken by a videophone on which you can't really hear anything.

They interviewed some who attended and judging by the very politically correct tone they adopted she seems to have worked hard to keep it strictly business and to avoid any 'gaffes'.
One said that she seemed to have learnt a lot from her many mistakes made during her 'early' international political career.

They also said she answered only preselected questions and that the organizers refused to say how much she was being paid for the speech.

I really question if you believe this or just think it gets Obama supporters upset?


On the other hand, that you were able to get Kwame Kilpatrick, birthers, and Carter in a thread about Palin is really amazing!

Now, back to topic:

Sarah Palin can see China from Hong Kong

Ex-Gov. Sarah Palin made a decorous debut on the international stage Wednesday with a long speech to investors in Hong Kong.
As politicians like ex-President George W. Bush prefer when they leave public office, the event was closed to the evil, distorting media that's probably too cheap to buy a ticket anyway. And as with teenage dating, there's nothing the pursuer wants more than something he can't have.

So, of course, some details always leak out. Palin was reportedly well-received and folksy at times, but gone was any hard-edged partisanship so familiar from the campaign a year ago. She did not mention what's-his-name in the White House who clobbered her Republican presidential ticket last November.

Again we see that when KC can't handle the answer of people with MUUUUUCH higher authority than him, he just calls them a name and dismisses them. Guess what: The Ninth Circuit is a MUUUUCH higher authority than you, who knows relatively little about this stuff, and even they only got it on appeal from another federal court. In fact, the Supreme Court even has called this claim bogus and denied cert. I guess you're going to call them liberals now, aren't you?  Yeah sure

But as always, I don't expect facts to get in your way. Your claim is not only bogus, but moronic. You have decided that you don't like the president, and will accept anything someone says as true if it is negative. Turn on your brain, man. It is time for you to start challenging the people who feed you information, lest you set yourself up for ridicule.

Even DXing has said this argument is full of crap.

Let's just not mix up hope and expected success. Obama's got a long way to go before he can declare himself successful.

With that said, I don't expect I would have much hope if Palin were behind the wheel. That would be like letting someone sit in the left chair up front because they've built a couple model airplanes.

She did not go to Hong Kong for a Obama-bashing session. As any American public figure should, IMHO, she did not attack the sitting president on foreign soil. You keep the partisan politics at home - when you are overseas, Americans should present a united front.

I seem to recall another figure from the GOP answering only pre-selected questions on a regular basis.

I say all of this, of course, with the understanding that the media was not allowed inside.

I did read something in the blog I thought was interesting:

"She made an argument for a private industry solution to U.S. healthcare problems, for lower taxes and reduced government. She suggested that China play a more responsible role in international affairs, especially concerning North Korea and Afghanistan."

I realize it is a blog, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, but my thing is: private industry has been working with health care for the past few decades and look where it has gotten us. The GOP has had a lot of time to prove they can lower taxes and reduce government, but have not. Also, why should China do anything about Afganistan and North Korea? The United States is expending all our resources in those two contries plus Iraq and Iran. Why would China get involved? The way things are going now, it will take the United States out of the picture.

I still don't think she has what it takes to be involved being an elected official. I think she will end up being to the right what the right thinks Carter is to the left: dead weight.

Funny, before McCain named her for his running mate the only thread about her was about her election to the Governors office and how every heterosexual in NON AV made a comment that she was hot.
Now every time she makes news there seems a concerted effort to publicly stone her. All the feminists on the left showed their hypocrisy when she was named by bashing her by mainly attacking her background as being not Ivy League educated, not growing up in the Northeast, likes to hunt and fish and field dress/filet and consume what she catches or kills. Has a son who is a enlisted man in the Alaska Natl Guard ( elitist's think something is wrong with their child if they serve their country in the military) . Plus don't forget that other unforgivable and must be destroyed sin of being pro life, all the beautiful/professional power women of upper Manhattan would have aborted a down syndrome fetus in a New York minute, probably because they could not have a prayer of a getting the handicapped child into a exclusive day care or get a nanny that would take care of the child.
Just curious on how many ethics complaints there were before the VP Nomination, tried google but all I got was a Wikipedia bio and don't like using that to quote. I remember the look of Bob Beckel on FOX during the GOP convention when she was named, it was a look we better get busy because the Dems were caught flat footed. The next day a army of investigators and lawyers with DNC money in their accounts descended on Alaska to dig and tear apart her life. Hindsight being 20/20 I wonder if she picks up the phone knowing what John McCain is about to ask her? Plus I congratulate her oldest daughter for dumping that Jackass sperm donor, at least she done something right.
Here is a interesting hypothetical, what if Hillary in 2012 decides to leave the reservation and challenge his Obamaness for the nomination or run as a independent as in today's environment that both parties are held in contempt by the American people. Will the elites attack Hillary ?

Boy, did you just walk into that one, or what? Obama is the president that seems to need a teleprompter to go to the bathroom, and was repeatedly shown getting all flustered when the teleprompters malfunctioned.

Palin on the other hand, on her very first national live event, went without a teleprompter, and at the GOP convention, the prompters malfunctioned and she either improvised or recalled the speech from memory so well that nobody realized something went wrong until the events were reported.

I'm well aware that the Conservative message eschews such things as knowledge, reason, and most of all, education. That's why the world's elite universities tend to be liberal. Because when you actually study stuff and look at facts, logic, and reason, you tend to come out with very Liberal points of view.

On the other hand, when you go with base, gut, animal reactions, you tend to come out a Conservative.
