Sarah Palin’s speech portrayed Obama as someone who only talks to working class people “when they’re listening” and said she got rid of the gubernatorial jet and private chef when she became Alaskan Governor.
Fox News quoted her as saying: “I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly, these last few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone,” she said. “But … here’s a little news flash for those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion — I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”
“She also jabbed at Obama for telling California donors during the Democratic primary that small-town voters “cling” to things like religion and guns out of bitterness.
“We prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and the other way in San Francisco,” she said.”
