Sarah Palin spoke last night in Des Moines at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual fall banquet. The former Republican VP candidate spoke about the left’s war on Christianity. Sarah told the crowd the War on Christmas is just the tip of the spear in the war against religious expression. She explained the same people who rail against Christianity have their own belief in government and, “What’s that done for you lately?” She also blasted Republicans who surrendered during the budget talks this fall.
Sarah also bashed the president on his failed signature legislation.
“And, folks the crowning achievement of their church of big government – Obamacare. With its architect the president now broadcasting his “Sham-Wow” style infomercials defending this trainwreck in all of its deception. With Obamacare, oh goodness, even if you liked your healthcare plan, you can’t keep it because you silly Iowans, you didn’t really like that health plan that you had and that you could afford, you just thought you liked it. Our dear leaders know better. They won’t let you keep it because what do you hicks in flyover country know?”
Reuters reported on her speech:
Palin told the Christian conservatives in attendance it was time to “stiffen our spines” for the 2014 elections.

“I want to encourage you to make your voice heard, to hold politicians accountable,” Palin said.
The bulk of Palin’s speech was focused on the nation’s current political climate. She drew thunderous applause with her sharp attack on Republicans in Congress who voted in October to raise the nation’s debt ceiling and reopen the government.
“They promised that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare, but when it came time to stand and defund it, they waved the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight for us,” Palin said.
Palin named Lee and Cruz as leaders in that fight. Last month, Cruz also made a stop in Iowa, a key state in presidential campaigns because the Iowa caucuses are the first electoral event in the nominating process.
In 2010 Lee defeated three-term Republican Senator Bob Bennett in a primary on his way to winning the Senate seat.
