Some early feedback coming in regarding Palin's speech in Hong Kong.
Some money quotes:
"Two US delegates left early, according to AFP, with one saying "it was awful, we couldn't stand it any longer." He declined to be identified."
"Palin spoke out against government intervention in the economy. "We got into this mess because of government interference in the first place," Palin said, according to the Wall Street Journal. "We're not interested in government fixes, we're interested in freedom," she added."
I believe the fact that there was absolutely zero regulation on the markets is the reason our economy ended up this way. But she is a Kristol clone. Facts don't matter.
Oh here is a good one:
"She claimed that if taxes were cut and the capital gains tax and estate tax eliminated, the world would "watch the U.S. economy roar back to life."
Does she know that there are two wars going on that actually cost money?
"As fund managers we want to hear about the United States as a whole, not just about Alaska," one told AFP. "And she criticized Obama a lot but offered no solutions."
She also took some good cheap shots at China. You know, the one Country that can and will destroy us whenever they see fit.
I hope she runs in 2012. I really do.
