(Photos & Video) Sarah Palin Honored With ‘Key To The City’ In Central Illinois

The Washington Post

By Christopher Willis: Palin taken aback by Obama ‘superpower’ remark

Washington, IL — Sarah Palin says she was taken aback to hear President Barack Obama say that America is a military superpower “whether we like it or not.”  Palin said Saturday night that Americans like being a dominant superpower. She says she doesn’t understand a world view that questions whether people like the fact that America is powerful.

The former Alaska governor’s remarks came in a question-and-answer session after a speech to about 1,100 people in the central Illinois town of Washington.  Obama said earlier this week that the United States must do its best to resolve conflicts around the world before they grow too serious. Otherwise, America might be drawn into the conflicts “because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.”

Illinois Review

By Fran Eaton: Palin Raises Funds For Washington IL Community Center

It was the mayor of Washington Illinois that decided last year he wanted former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to come to his town just outside Peoria that got Palin into Illinois for her first visit this weekend. […]

Mayor Gary Manier set out to get Palin into his town of 14,000 residents to raise funds for the town’s community center and youth scholarships.  Tickets for tonight’s dinner will go as high as $200 per person. […]  Palin is coming back to Illinois next month, a guest of 560 AM WIND.  She’ll be speaking at the Rosemont Theatre, near O’Hare International Airport in Chicago’s western suburbs.

Peoria Journal Star

By Karen McDonald: Palin wraps up speech after extolling Peoria diversity

“So much of the eyes of America are on Peoria and this central region because it is kind of a melting pot of America and there’s a great diversity here and an opportunity to disagree without being disagreeable in order to get the best policies, the best ideas implemented,” Palin said during the banquet.

Her speech, the inaugural speech in Five Points Washington “Lessons from Leaders” speakers series, was titled “You Don’t Need a Title to Make a Difference.”

“I’m not necessarily a Sarah Palin fan, but I think people in her position have interesting things to say. After all, she was the governor of Alaska,” said Peoria County Sheriff Mike McCoy, a Republican.

“I’m not necessarily a Joe Biden fan, but I listened to him too when he came to Peoria last month to speak on domestic violence because he has a passion for that and his speech was outstanding.” […]

By Marc Strauss: Sarah Palin Packs Five Points In Washington

Whatever you think of Sarah Palin she knows how to draw a crowd. On Saturday, at Five Points in Washington, that crowd numbered 1,100.  Ron and Hazel Dyar came to see Palin speak after she personally replied to a letter they’d sent her.  “We’re so proud of it and we have shown this note to many, many people. They just think this is awesome,” bragged Mrs. Dyar. […]

“A lot of the eyes of America are on this area looking at what it is that you’re doing right,” Palin told the crowd from the podium. “Perhaps it will help other communities emulate those things that have been successful here. It is such an honor for me to get to be here. I so appreciate the key to the city.”

Palin’s message while speaking at Five Points was entitled “You Don’t Need A Title To Make A Difference”. Her appearance drew plenty of people with titles. “I really don’t see why the controversy,” said Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis. “Her message is fairly clear. Her message fits in pretty strong in Central Illinois I believe.” […]

Many of the people who paid to see Sarah Palin at Five Points would like to see her run for president in 2012. But the guest speaker wasn’t talking about that.
