Washington, Mar 17: Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has launched a blistering attack on President Barack Obama and her own Republican Party leaders and spoke out loud to re-establish herself as a ‘leading light’ of America’s conservative movement.
During a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference, the most important gathering of conservatives, Palin accused Obama of being a liar.
According to the Guardian, Palin laid out her case with verve and enthusiasm, firing off verbal bombs at practically everyone in mainstream American politics.
She reserved her main assault for Obama, saying that he was a ‘plain-speaker that wins hearts on the right wing but can lead to gaffes’, the report said.
She also made a reference to popular conspiracy theories over Obama’s birthplace and alleged Mar ist leanings when she attacked the president for wanting more background checks on gun-buyers.
She then compared Obama to convicted fraudster Bernie Madoff. She said that Obama is considered a good politician, which is like saying Bernie Madoff was a good salesman.
Then, on Obama’s promise of a more transparent government, she said simply that he was a liar.
According to the report, meanwhile, another former 2012 White House hopeful, Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann, also gave a full-throttle ‘red meat’ speech in which she suggested Obama was a decadent leader who led the high life in the White House while American diplomats were being killed last year in Libya.
