ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Sarah Palin was in the spotlight again Saturday night, speaking at the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, Tenn.
Protesters for -- and against -- Palin demonstrated outside the convention before she spoke. During her speech, Palin criticized the Obama administration for many things, including its handling of the stimulus bill, the war on terror and the health care debate. She said the president's 2011 is "immoral" because it increases the national debt.
Palin also predicted a good year for conservative political candidates, pointing to Sen. Scott Brown's win in Massachusetts.
"We know that we have some big problems to solve," Palin said. "We've gotten tired of looking backward. We want to look forward -- and from here, my friends, the future looks good, it looks really good. Because if there's hope in Massachusetts, there's hope everywhere."
The Tea Party Nation is an organization that promotes limited government.
