Noting that President Barack Obama and his Democratic party is running out of time, former Alaska Governor and Republican’s Vice President nominee Sarah Palin on Sunday said “America is ready for another revolution”. Palin said this in her key-note address to the National Tea Party Convention, wherein she attacked the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party for what she termed as the failed policies. “America is ready for another revolution and you are a part of this,” Palin said in her 45-minute speech in which she aligned herself with the policies of the fast growing Tea Party who are opposed to too much government spending. Her speech in Nashville was televised live by several news channels including CNN and Fox News. The former Alaska Governor called the Tea Party movement a “ground-up call to action that is forcing both parties to change the way they’re doing business.” Palin, in her keynote address, blasted the administration for “wasteful” stimulus spending and urged the Congress to kill the latest stimulus-style proposal. She said last year has proved that the Obama administration’s attempts to extend an open hand to hostile nations, like North Korea, have not worked. “It’s no wonder that our president only spent about 9 per cent of his State of the Union address discussing national security, foreign policy, because there aren’t a whole lot of victories he can talk about,” she said. “They know we’re at war, and to win that war we need a commander-in-chief, not a professor of law standing at the lectern,” Palin said. “These are acts of war that these terrorists are committing. We need to treat them a little bit differently than an American who is worthy, an American being worthy of our US constitutional rights. I don’t think the terrorists are worthy of our rights,” she said. “The Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda will leave us less secure, more in debt and under the thumb of big government,” Palin said, adding that voters all over the country are sending a message that they want change in Washington and referred to the recent Democratic defeat in the Massachusetts Senate seat. The Washington Post said with this speech the former Alaska Governor has moved to the national stage. “With her remarks, greeted with wild enthusiasm here and carried live by all three major cable news networks, Palin moved firmly to reestablish herself as a politician capable of national office,” the daily said. Palin was very critical of Obama in particular. She opposed the decision of the Obama Administration to charge Nigerian terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in a civilian court instead of what according to her should be a military trial.
