Sarah Palin spoke at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver Colorado on 19 July 2014. After some amusing opening comments. Among those comments were some observations about the Attorney General, Eric Holder. He had made some disparaging remarks about her earlier this week after she called for the impeachment of the President. She noted his rather shady record in law enforcement, and the contempt charges that Congress had levied against Eric Holder.
Palin then turned her attention to the President. One particularly amusing and insightful comment about Obama meeting with the very "Crony Capitalists" that he disparages in his rhetoric, was that when he dines with these Crony Capitalist, the forgotten man is often on the menu. She used FDR's forgotten man to briefly build the case for conservatism and impeachment. She highlighted how college students, veterans, political activist, minorities, and legal citizens have become part of the forgotten man during the Obama years. She explained how conservatism, as articulated by Ronald Reagan and others could save the nation's future prosperity.
From there, she expounded on the need to impeach the President. The same "monarchy" them that Don Young had asserted in Congress regarding the EPA's treatment of Alaska could be found in many of her examples, but she went far beyond the EPA and the abuses of administrative agencies. She took the President solidly to task on a variety of issues. She also took to task those who decry the President's abuses by asking, "So what are you going to do about it."
In addition to Obama, Palin chided those who say that first we need to get past the election before any action is taken against Obama. "Been there, done that in 2010," she aptly observed, and discussed the need to use the Constitutional remedies for a President engaged in the sort of lawless behavior of the current administration. That constitutional remedy for a President who commits high crimes and misdemeanors is clearly impeachment. If Obama isn't impeachable, no one is. "We don't do Kings," she quipped. "Impeachment is a tool in the toolbox..." to hold this imperial President accountable. She reminded the crowd they have a pen and a phone and to use it to urge those in power to impeach the President.
While there are some light-hearted moments, the speech is full of red meat. It was an excellent speech and well received by the crowd.
