When Sarah talks, CLSA listens

 Hong Kong Asia Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin addressed an audience at the CLSA Asia Pacific Markets Conference today.  Although the forum was not officially filmed, and closed to the media, reports of the happening in the Wall Street Journal and Breitbart are starting to emerge; along with some of Sarah’s choice words:

Lack of government wasn’t the problem. Government policies were the problem. The marketplace didn’t fail. It became exactly as common sense would expect it to. The government ordered the loosening of lending standards. The Federal Reserve kept interest rates low. The government forced lending institutions to give loans to people who, as I say, couldn’t afford them. Speculators spotted new investment vehicles, jumped on board and rating agencies underestimated risks…

Ah, that lovely Palin common sense.  An interesting juxtaposition to Obama’s apologies and ideological surrender, eh?  Read both of the linked pieces, especially the Wall Street Journal link.  And for more on this see ACE’s take, and Allah Pundit; both AllahP and Breitbart have video to boot!

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal has another full story on her speech.  And from a NY Times piece:

Mr. Goodé, a New Yorker who said he would never vote for Mrs. Palin, said she acquitted herself well.  “They really prepared her well,” he said. “She was articulate and she held her own. I give her credit. They’ve tried to categorize her as not being bright. She’s bright.”

Just.Wow…

    Bob, CLSA is a brokerage firm, which means your headline is written incorrectly. Yeah well, you know what, keep it as it is. It fits.

    Did you actually read any of the quotations?

    Do you care to discuss any of the issues she addressed?

    Did you even see where the NYTimes found an ideological opponent who admitted the stereotypes were wrong and that she was very bright?

    Discussion, or chillbilly snark;what will it be…

    Thanks for correcting me though, I appreciate it…

    Dah gubblemints dah poblems.

    Eno, have I revealed to you my deep love for Condoleezza Rice, and her cat, eta kooshka, named Bones?

    I love Condi and her Bones, because if beauty can’t save the world it’s a teeny tiny cat that could!

    If you were drowning I’d throw you a line, but it wouldn’t be able to describe my love for little Bones, and Condi, especially Condi. It began back when I was enduring a dark moment of no hope and no redeeming social value. I think it was chicken, or maybe a fish, you can never know, but I choked on little Bones, and I was suffering, really choking and suffering inside. Things grew dark, the museum was closing; I began to see the nothing. Right then, at the edge of the frigid abyss, Condi saved me. All along all I needed was a hug. And did we ever get down to it!

    My angst, it rammed through the ramparts. Suddenly I was jumping from that bridge just to see how down it really is! I was jumping from a moving car just to see how alive Condi’s tits really are. She robbed my bank, took whatever I had, hands and knees, everything I sometimes need.

    Condi was belly up and looking at me, and that’s when I whispered to her, I said “sometimes, Condi, you have to get on your knees in order to survive, it’s not like all your drinks are on the Crown when your full of the trickle down.”

    How we laughed!

    But the NYT is the fifth column. Those reporters, those journalists, you know what I think? I think every one of them that died in Iraq, didn’t really die covering the war, they committed suicide, but not before revealing our troops’ positions to the enemy! Suicide Columnists! That’s what they are, or should I say were.

    That’s the reason I can’t speak of anything printed in the NYT.

    I actually agree on the NYTimes bias and useful idiot status; which makes their printing of such an admission all the more telling!

    They’re probably communists! too…

    Now, any real problems with anything she said, or will it be, you know, more of the same?

    I though her comment, which I quoted, on the busting of the housing bubble and the concomitant financial system meltdown was well put; a succinct encapsulation that many everyday Americans will be able to hang their hats on-so to speak…

    And it’s that very communicative skill, greater even than Obama’s, that the progressive Democrats truly fear…

    You’re lucky too. I almost used the winky-winky photo, but I knew that would probably drive you over the edge…

    Many everyday Americans are stupid. And if I wanted some wind-up dumb, I’d care.

    I read the NYT, had already read that quote before you cut and pasted it, in fact. One must read the NYT in order to understand America. I can even fold the front page just so and make you a paper hat.

    I also read the WSJ and books too. Unlike Sarah Palin I can name the newspapers, magazines and books I read.

    Hong Kong Sarah is a village idiot. I feel a bedtime story of Sarah’s days as a highway girl welling up inside me.

    FTFY Podnuh; you don’t owe me a dime…

    And if you reas the WSJ blog piece I linked full of quotations, and still maintain she’s an idiot, then you are either permanently prejudiced, of questionable sense yourself, or just lack the reading comprehension; I doublt it’s the last one…

    Remember, Charlie “Do you agree with the Boooosh! doctrine” Gibson didn’t even have a clue as to the whole inflating-as-fast-as-the-big-bang ACORN scandal…

    And Katie? Don’t get me started…

    Find Jesus.

    Haha, I just made that up as I typed it.

    That big thick paper that contains smart words, it’s a pretty good read. But reading isn’t something you, much less Hong Kong Sarah, does much of. Admit it. Just admit it.

    Did you read all the links I posted on the other thread? And you talk about reading, when you don’t even click through the links folks go to the troubkle of providing you?

    So that you can speak on issues after having been properly informed…

    Doesn’t seem too intelligent to me.

    I’ve already read them, and more. I went to Google news and searched Palin.

    Google is my friend.
