Speaking at the closing of the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, Sarah Palin was likely happier to take her hundred grand speaking fee than boost her 2012 chances, says Bloomberg News. “Sarah Palin criticized President Barack Obama’s first year in office by saying ‘the list of broken promises is long’ as she addressed the Tea Party movement’s inaugural national convention. The campaign-style speech at a dinner in Nashville, Tennessee, last night was a frontal assault on the administration’s handling of national security and terrorism, even though she stopped short of declaring ambitions for a 2012 presidential bid as her audience chanted ‘Run Sarah, Run!’ ‘I am a big supporter of this movement,’ she said. ‘America is ready for another revolution.’ The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee questioned whether the suspect in the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit was interrogated aggressively enough. ‘Treating this like a mere law-enforcement matter places our country at grave risk because that’s not how radical Islamic extremists are looking at this,’ she said. ‘To win that war, we need a commander in chief, not a professor of law standing at the lectern.’ The current Democratic administration can no longer blame the previous one for the nation’s ills, Palin said.”
