Why are conservatives allegedly NOW "breaking up" with Palin?

What was different about her recent speech in Iowa than any from the past couple years? I keep seeing articles declaring the right is now officially over her because of THIS speech.

Romney and Jeb Bush to Meet in Utah

Source: NY Times

Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney are scheduled to meet privately this week in Utah, raising the possibility that the two former governors will find a way to avoid competing presidential campaigns that would split the Republican establishment next year, two prominent party members said Wednesday night.
...
Mr. Bush proposed the meeting, according to one of the party members familiar with the planning, who did not want to be quoted by name in discussing a secret meeting.
...
Mr. Bush, a former Florida governor, and Mr. Romney, who was governor of Massachusetts, are neither friends nor adversaries. But Mr. Bush offered little help to Mr. Romney in his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, and tensions have grown since Mr. Bush said that he was exploring a presidential bid.

Mr. Bush has been critical of the way Mr. Romney ran his 2012 campaign, and Mr. Romney has raised questions in private about whether Mr. Bush, who has worked in the finance industry in recent years, would be vulnerable to the attacks that so damaged his own campaign against President Obama.

How did Democrats respond to Bush's SOTUs?

We've all seen how Republicans in the chamber refuse to clap or stand for even the most basic, agreeable notions - how did Democrats behave during the Bush SOTUs? Please tell me the Dems weren't sour pusses!
