Orlando, Florida (CNN) – As Sarah Palin urged about 2,000 Republican activists Saturday to keep working until the last minute to help guarantee GOP successes, she went after some recent comments by President Obama in which he said Americans are scared and frustrated and may not be thinking straight about the midterm elections. He has suggested Republicans were playing on that fear.
"Well, ya know Mr. President, you got it right on one point there, we are afraid - knowing that your economic policies are driving us off a cliff and your fundamental transformation of America is a nightmare. This is not the America that the rest of the people want, this is not the America that patriots fought and died for and still dying for today," she told the crowd.
She urged those in the audience to "exhaust ourselves" in the last 10 days leading up to the midterm elections to help get the vote out and to make sure no one is complacent.
"We can't think it is in the bag," she said. "We have to leave the dancing to the stars," a light-hearted reference to her daughter's participation in the ABC reality show.
"There are no second chances in elections" she warned the audience. "Ten days from now if we make this the biggest effort... the biggest Republican victory... we are going to take it back for we the people."
"Victory in 2010 is just the beginning," she said. She added Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Michael Steele and his team would lead Republicans to "victory in 2012" but did not give any hints about whether she would be one of those running for the party's presidential nomination.
Marco Rubio, the Republican Senate nominee, appeared at the event Saturday, speaking near the beginning of the rally. He left the stage before Palin came on to speak. In her remarks she complimented him and other candidates, including Rick Scott, who is running for governor. Scott was not at the event.
Last week when Palin spoke at an RNC rally in California, neither Senate nominee Carly Fiorina nor gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman attended that event, citing other commitments.
During Saturday's speech the crowd roared with applause when Palin went after the Obama administration's stimulus program, which she said included money aimed at studying whether alcohol impacted a mouse's motor skills.
"I didn't know Mickey had a drinking problem," she said to much laughter.
Both Palin and RNC Chairman Steele mentioned Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, whose district includes the area where the event was held. Some Republicans and Tea Party activists believe Grayson conspired to build support for Tea Party activist Peg Dunmire on the ballot to draw votes from Republican candidate Daniel Webster.
"I hear there is some stuff going on down here" regarding Grayson, Steele said. "I am here to make it very clear... stop your perpetrating."
"Mr. Grayson you are no friend of the Tea Party," he added. "We are not playing that game. We are not fools."
"May that one-term wonder be retired," Palin said.
