The popular Alaskan governor led the parade for Seward Days.
Later she bashed Obama and the big spending democrats in her speech.
The AP reported:
More than 20,000 people turned out to see Palin lead a parade through downtown Auburn and sign a proclamation honoring Seward, the 19th-century Secretary of State who negotiated the $7.2 million deal with Russia for Alaska, which is celebrating its 50th year of statehood.
Later, Palin spoke to several hundred people at a private fundraiser for the Seward House Museum, where she criticized the Obama administration for its policies on national security and energy and its handling of the economic crisis.
“It’s clear to many that some of our priorities as a nation are reversed,” Palin told the several hundred people who each paid $100 or more to attend a garden party on the museum grounds. “Alaskans get tired of hearing that Washington bureaucrats know what’s best for us so we push and fight and challenge decisions made inside the Beltway when they are not in the best interests of the country, and we know that decisions that are being made recently are not in the country’s best interests.”
Conservatives4Palin has more from her speech where she let loose on Obama:
Because the more we dig into these (government) mandates, these connections that the money would have that we would spend coming from the federal government, including the string attached to these dizzying federal debts that we are handing to our kids and to their kids to pay off for us – I can’t say strings attached anymore, now I say they are ropes…They are debt building, binding, controlling ropes and it is bigger government that ultimately will take away our opportunities and our freedoms.
And now precedent says government will bail you out, depending on the decisions that you’ve made if you’re not prudent with your business dollars. Government will buy you out. Anyone need a car? And this is a problem because we cannot afford this government largess and control and unrestrained spending. I don’t think that’s what Seward had in mind. And I do not believe it’s the will of the people.
No wonder the corrupt Obamedia hates her.
