Sarah Palin is so smart isn’t she?

Previously their was an article, small one about her recent talk in Hong Kong giving one of those brilliant speeches she gives. She is such a smart women. Going to China I bet she knew more about US policy than Obama!
Sept. 23 was a hazy day in Hong Kong. It’s unlikely that Sarah Palin could have gazed across the city’s harbor, past the mountains of the New Territories, and spied mainland China in the distance. Secluded inside the Grand Hyatt hotel, behind a tight cordon of security and a sea of hobnobbing fund managers, she may not even have seen much of Hong Kong itself.

Look Who’s Talking: Palin Opens Up

Palin was in the Big Lychee on her first visit to Asia, delivering her first major speech abroad at a high-profile conference of bankers and regional finance executives. A reported 1,100 delegates crammed into the ballroom to hear her champion "commonsense conservatism" and Reaganomics and offer commentary on Asian geopolitics. But if this luncheon keynote address was the former Alaska governor’s first credential-burnishing step toward a 2012 presidential bid, it was made with the pesky media well at arm’s length. All press were barred from the event, reportedly at the request of Palin’s camp. Details of her remarks have been pieced together from interviews with delegates who were in attendance, tweets from inside the ballroom and a few private recordings of the proceedings that were obtained by news agencies. Neither spokespersons for Palin or CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, the investment firm sponsoring the conference, were willing to disclose Palin’s itinerary in Asia.

Though dubbed "a conversation with Sarah Palin," the event turned out to be more of a monologue. She spoke for almost 90 minutes, all the way to 2 p.m., when the session was supposed to end. As an attendee said while walking out, "she clearly wanted to keep talking so there’d be no questions." The moderator did ask her a few questions, but that part of the program lasted less than 10 minutes.
(See pictures of Sarah Palin.)

She did make a few memorable pronouncements, for example, "I don’t like excessive partisanship." Addressing the financial crisis, she declared there was no need for new regulation: "Lack of government wasn’t the problem. Government policies were the problem. The markets didn’t fail. Government failed." Palin reportedly called for the elimination of capital gains and estate taxes, decried state overspending and, supposedly without mentioning U.S. President Barack Obama by name, criticized his efforts to widen government involvement in health care. She rattled off a few terms of financial art but did not address the issues facing the markets for long, saying, "That’s for next time."

Palin did not shy away from addressing Asia and its politics. She hit the Republican talking points on China, warning against protectionism and expressing concern about China’s military buildup. "We hope for China to rise responsibly," a delegate posting to Twitter live from the speech quoted Palin as saying. She also spoke of the U.S.’s historic role in securing prosperity and stability in the region and expressed a conviction that the U.S. could help steer Beijing toward democracy.

Still, according to many delegates, Palin’s home state of Alaska dominated the talk. "She rambled on about the place for ages," says an Indian banker with a major U.S. firm. "Palin even talked about Alaska’s land bridges with Asia and how animals once went across." Based on a recording it reviewed, the Wall Street Journal says Palin invoked her husband Todd’s Eskimo heritage as a sign of shared "bloodlines" between the continents.

Palin’s audience was a mostly sympathetic throng of high-flying executives and fund managers from more than 32 countries, responsible for some $10 trillion worth of assets among themselves. While they welcomed her support for strong free-market policies, some of the executives in the crowd were not entirely convinced. "[Palin] displayed a mixture of commonsense prudence and a bit of naiveté when it comes to finance," says a London-based fund manager (most delegates spoke anonymously due to the confidentiality policies of their companies). "Surely, we know now not all things are better left to the market."

After stepping down as governor earlier this year, Palin has allegedly received more than 1,000 speaking invitations. Some speculate that she was well remunerated by CLSA, though the company spokeswoman, Simone Wheeler, refused to comment on the question of a fee. The CLSA Investors’ Forum has a rich tradition of bringing in leading global — and often American — figures, such as Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Preceding Palin as top-of-the-bill speakers
on Monday and Tuesday were the Harvard financial historian Niall Ferguson and Robert Fisk, a veteran British correspondent in the Middle East. "Our speakers do not fit a specific formula," says Wheeler. "We just want to present our forum with newsmakers, with people who think outside the box. We want to air their virgin views."

But as the foreign press flapped about Palin (and the lack of access to her), few in the local Cantonese media — or most Hong Kongers, in general — seemed to care. Few representatives from Hong Kong’s tabloid-driven press stood in the forlorn journalist pen outside the hotel. Shown a picture of Palin, a woman surnamed Ng, who operated a food stand near the Grand Hyatt, professed to not know who she was. "If she is rich and famous, then maybe she goes shopping nearby," said Ng from behind her counter. "Afterward, she can come eat my fishballs."

    She is very smart indeed, and so lovely.

    Palin’s big speech in Asia was CLOSED TO THE MEDIA. hmmm … i wonder if it’s because she didn’t want Jon Stewart running clips of her sounding like the dumbass "hockey mom" she is.

    keep Palin in the news Republicans … PLEASE … do that and another landslide for the Democrats in 2012.

    LOL.References :

    Palin is smart… far smarter than she’s been given credit for, but then she was unfairly railroaded.

    Most liberals can’t even see her clearly because they have been too swept up in the herd mentality to see straight.References :

    If being smart consists of giving a long-winded speech in order to dodge questions you can’t answer intelligently and giving an irrelevant history lesson about a land bridge that’s now covered by sea, she’s a flippin’ genius!:)References :

    I can’t believe liberals still try to bash Palin.
    Did she give you all PTSD?

    Sara Palin deserves more then what she got from being a Republican. McCain wiped the floor up with her and look how the Party even made fun of her. President Obama and VP Biden treated her with Respect. They let her ramble on and did not insult her. She has lots of Potential and most people like her. But the book you wrote about her, tells me you know more about her then you admit. Sound more like your her Husband. Especially in the end of your short book. You say she inspires you and makes you happy. You want us to vote for her. Well if she did not have to drag behind old short armed McCain, I think she would have done better.
    At the end your shouting. So I have good reason to truly believe your are Mr. Palin. Right ???References :

    Palin certainly LOOKS smart.

    I especially like her ideas on faith-based birth control for her daughter.

    I wish she could move to the San Fernando Valley.References :

    I’ll take you up on your bet that that stupid f**king Alaskian Hillbilly knew more about foreign policy then PRESIDENT Obama.

    Just because she went to 5 college’s, not universities, but colleges doesn’t make her smart. It just shows her habit of QUITTING EVERYTHING SHE STARTS…..started at an early age

    I never thought that I would live long enough to actually see a living person make the DUMBEST MOTHERF**KER ON EARTH….DESERTER George W. Bush appear to have ONE(1) functioning brain cell, but after PORK-BARREL Sarah Palin, aka the Alaskian Hillbilly spoke, I knew I had lived long enough to see a person make the DUMBEST MOTHERF**KER ON EARTH…..DESERTER George W. Bush appear to have at least ONE (1) functioning brain cell.References :
