After Liberals, Sarah Palin Calls For Sanctioning Rahm Emanuel

February 8, 2010 by  

After liberals, Sarah Palin calls for sanctioning Rahm Emanuel White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has been in the news lately with some progressives calling for his dismissal and blaming him for trying to accommodate the conservatives. However, a new revelation has railed some GOP members.

The Wall Street Journal has recently reported that in a closed-door meeting last summer, Obama’s top aide called liberal special-interest groups that wanted to run ads against conservative Democrats who did not support healthcare reform "f—— retarded," according to media reports.

When informed about the comment, Sarah Palin, whose child has Down syndrome, posted a note on Facebook alleging Emanuel’s words amounted to a "racial slur."

"Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities is unacceptable," she wrote, adding that President Obama should "show decency" by removing the Chicago politician from his inner circle.

In the meantime, Emanuel reportedly called Tim Shriver, chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics, to apologize.

Last month, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee urged its members not to support the former Illinois congressman if he runs for public office again. It said Emanuel allowed the Democrats to give up the public option, helped to put together deals with drug companies in exchange for their support and argued against a bigger stimulus package.

    Nancy,
    I’ll give you the same challenge that I’ve given a lot of other liberals here. Name two lies that Glenn Beck told and prove them wrong with FACTS, if you are able of course!!! Just remember though, FACTS PLEASE!!!

            No page found. Could it be that they removed it because it was untrue?

          • DaveH

            No page found for two of your links.

          • eyeswideopen

            I typed in wrong, thing sorry, had so many, I didn’t go back and correct them. how many do you want?

          • Joe H.

            eyes,
            you lied, your sources lied and your obummer lied. Why should we believe anything you say or your sources for that matter!!!!

          • eyeswideopen

          • JeffH

            You should apologise, for everytime you open your trap. Don’t you get tired of not “fact checking” then being called on the carpet for mis-information. That makes you a liar also.

          • Harold Olsen

            I hate siding with anyone in the Obama regime, but I think Rahm Emanuel’s use of the word retard is much ado about nothing. Lots of people use the word. Democrats and liberals used it in reference to Bush and Cheney. Republicans and conservatives have used it in reference to Pelosi, Reid and Biden, myself included. Palin comparing it to a racial slue I think is a bit much. I happen to have a sister who is mentally retarded and I still use the term. I can’t stand Emanuel or anyone else in the Obama regime, but calling him out for this is going to extreme. The word just means abnormally slow in development, especially, mental development, according to my dictionary. If anything, it’s nothing more than a case of political correctness (or in this case being politically incorrect) and I’m sick and tired of political correctness. If I were to go after Emanuel for anything, it would be his use of the “F” word. I’ve noticed that people of low intellect resort to vulgarity in expressing themselves because they are not capable of expressing themselves any other way. The lower the intellect the more vulgarity they use.

          • DaveH

            Harold,
            Isn’t the PC phrase these days “mentally challenged”?

          • dragon5126

            No Dave, that’s the formal description of a Democrat. If you will notice people without real life experience are typically liberals. Once they grow beyond their limitations and gain life experience they tend to become conservatives. And as you can tell by the bashers on this site real Democrats never develop the ability to overcome their limitations…

          • American Citizen

            There’s a difference in the way it is used. Rahm’s use of it the way he did was a slur.

          • ACRScout

            I don’t have a problem with what Rahmbo said as much as I have a problem with the hypocrisy. We have Rahmbo and his comments which may very well be truthful (are those he refers to actually “retarded”?) Then we have Nan Pelosi calling people “unAmerican” merely for disagreeing with Odimbo, the Attorney General calling people racists and the Sec of Homeland Security calling veterans “potential terrorists”, all this followed by calls by Odimbo for “Civility”.

            Also there are the closed door meetings in an administration that professes to be “the most transparent in history”.

            And these people actually want to be taken seriously? Never gonna happen.

          • marvin

            you forgot that napolitano told sen session in a hearing that it is not illegal to be in this country undocumented and obama saying that he had been in 57 states

          • http://RehmalandPalin Robin

            I have to wonder why it is taking everyone so long to see that Sarah Palin likes to bait and fish for responses, this way she does not have to create the attention for who, Sarah Palin.

            She thrives on attention, she herself has used the word retard, many have .

            The nit picking Palin does is Palins function, she is been set up to be the Idiot to spread the dividing and create lies .

            Palin is not fit to lead any form of office, even dog catcher, she would have to consult Todd on how to pick up the pooooo.

            She has no clue, why waste time on someone that is really out to scam you and her benefit is MONEY. i CANNOT EVEN STAND TO LISTEN TO HER TALK.

            NEVER PURCHASED OR BOOK OR READ, I CAN GET ALL THE SCOOP ON HER AND YEP YOU BETCHA

            She will soon fade when they get thru using her for the lip service. Do you buy her BS

          • http://Don'thaveone Sally

            I think we have a little jeolousy here. Left to survive, I surely would pick Sarah to be with me and not Obama, Pelosi, Reid.

          • Joe H.

            Sally,
            If you were left to survive on a deserted isle with Obummer, P-lousy and Dirty Harry Reid you would be nothing but bones in a weeks time!!!!

          • American Citizen

            If you haven’t read her book, you don’t really know her.

          • Claire

            I think they are using her. She draws the crowds, and that is what they want and need. McCain is using her again and I don’t think he even likes her. She should distance herself from him. Perhaps she will run as an Conservative Repub. That would sure shake things up. She should be careful and not trust the GOP.

          • Tim

            Harold,

            For Emanuel, Beck, and Limbaugh to use the R word was in bad taste, even though it wasn’t as bad of a word as The B word or F word.

            Next, Obama doesn’t have a regime, as you claimed. In case you haven’t noticed, we are in the United States, not Iraq. It’s called a “presidency.”

            You mentioned that those of lowest intellect tend to resort to name-calling the most. I actually agree with you on this. I suggest you quit watching Fox News, in case you watch it for your daily news. The reason, is that several of their commentators like calling Obama names. I’m talking about Beck, O’Reilly, and Hannity. You need to also boycott Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh, because their rhetoric is full of disparaging remarks against Democrats. I bet you don’t care, because you probably think, like most conservatives, that it’s okay to demonize Democrats, but not Republicans.

          • s c

            Hey, DaveH, what is it with obummer’s flunkies and their daily whizzing and moaning about lies? Since when does the lamestream media or any ultraliberal progressive robot ever cry foul when obummer never tries to explain or defend his unending stream of LIES?

          • DaveH

            But SC, it’s okay for them to lie and steal other peoples’ money because they’re doing it for our own good.

          • eyeswideopen

            DaveH, are you missing the point that the Dem’s also pay taxes? You act as though the only people paying are the Conservative, Repubs, and Libertarians. Everybody pays, except the extremely rich who hide their earnngs offshore, so they can partake of our infrastructure but not pay any taxes. They expect middle class America to just pay and pay, while they hide their money. Why aren’t you ever concerned about those that escape paying at all?

          • David Hall

            Oh! Mr. Eyeswideopen, HOW RIGHT YOU ARE ON THIS ONE! Them rich, greedy
            Repubs and Dems are hiding their wealth like never before in history.
            Plus, they ain’t spending their money or expanding their greedy little
            businesses equals – - NO JOBS! Maybe, just maybe, Obama should try
            cutting their taxes and just maybe they wouldn’t hide so much! and
            give poor folks like me a JOB! How right you are again, when we fall,
            we’ll all fall together. Beans and taters, ain’t that bad!

          • rody

            See, that’s what I mean. You guys demand respect when you are not able to deliver the same. You can offend and use derogation, but shut out loud offense, offense when someone else unintentional makes a mistake.
            Here, it’s clear that your main intention is to offend and derogate, and you call that patriotism.

          • American Citizen

            We call a spade a spade.

          • dragon5126

            Don’t say spade, say ditch digging implement, spade is racist!

          • American Citizen

            Thanks, I’ll have to remember that, LOL.

          • marvin

            respect is earned not betowed up on you,, you can not disrespect some one that has no respect, trust and respect and lideral mind set are not compatable

          • Jana

            One thing about Beck is he tells History like it really is. The Progressives aka liars have tried to rewrite History and they sure have a lot of people snowed.

          • Joe H.

            eyes,
            page not found?!?!?! might it be that it wasn’t a lie in the first place?

          • derVenerschnitzel

            To quote LBJ… “you don’t know the difference between chicken $hit and chicken salad.”

          • Joe H.

            “A page so secret that we don’t even knowwhere it’s at!” Good proof eyes!!!!

          • Harold Olsen

            Maybe it’s with Obama’s birth certificate.

          • Joyce

            Maybe the deal with not producing a birth certificate has nothing to do with where Obama was born, but just maybe, under race, he is identified as WHITE. Now, how could he be the first BLACK president, which is important to him, if his birth certificate has his race listed as WHITE, which his mother was white. You never know

          • BigIron

            You know, I’d really never thought of that; that IS really a great question. It seems that I recall from my history that once upon a time, in our country’s past (sometime pre 1800s probably), a child’s race was determined by the race of the mother alone; I guess that’s one thing you could be pretty sure of pre DNA, etc. … ?Obama was “passing”? … What a great question. It really doesn’t matter to me how he’s cataloged. The question is not about his race (whatever it may be) and whether I approve of him (or not); it’s about whether he’s a natural born citizen (or not) and Constitutionally eligible to sit as President (or not)! Show me the real, long-form proof that he’s a “natural-born” citizen and I’m down with it on the eligibility issue.

          • libertytrain

            BigIron – probably cause of frequent rape/abuse of black slave women – just an observation from some old history I recollect reading. So by the old standards Obama is clearly white. So perhaps the attacks will stop from the left now using the old race card again, and again.

          • chuck b

            when you breed a donkey with a mare you get a mule!!

          • dragon5126

            It goes further. It isnt about where he was born. It’s about the fact that he was never legally vetted. No proof of eligibility was EVER supplied BEFORE he was entered into the race for president. McCain had to answer a court order to prove eligibility as he WAS born outside the US, however it was on a US military base so he met the requirements. YET the question was posed to and never answered by Obama, with him supplying A LASER printed certificate of live birth, not a birth certificate, Hell when he was born LASER PRINTERS didn’t even exist, so the form did not evem meet the requirement of An ORIGINAL CERTIFIED COPY of his birth certificate.
            So you see Obama and his handlers DID break the law no if ands or buts… AND the Constitution clearly states the President can be IMPEACHED for a MISDEMEANOR. The problem is Senate does the impeaching and THEY are all shills for the democratic party

Your source says their article is cross posted and gives a site but the site hasn’t got it!!! Guess they(gasp) lied!!! Most judges say if you tell a lie in court it taints your whole testamony. Another site scrapped!!! NEXT???

            If a liar calls someone a liar…wouldn’t that mean that the liars word was useless.

        • DaveH

          Who cares if he said Obama would slaughter or not? It is a fact that the biggest purges in History have been at the hands of Socialist or Communist Countries. And all we have to do is witness the vile personal attacks launched by Liberals on this board, and see that they don’t think it immoral to take other peoples’ money, to know that they are indeed capable of anything.

            Rush limbaugh what a liar. here are the letters sent to him previously when he used the word Retard. He didn’t learn a thing. http://www.thearclink.org/news/article.asp?ID=270

            That man is a lying hypocrite, who is making fools of everyone who believes him. Poor Sarah, she doesn’t have the balls to take him on.

          • Tim

            I think you need glasses! Read the post by “EyesWideOpen” again. He only used the R word once, far less than Limbaugh. I think you owe “Eyeswideopen” an apology.

            You have the right Idea about 0′bummers name, It says more about your opinion of 0′bummer. but please us a Zero instead of an upper case O. All of 0′bummers lies add up to a zero. Also use a ‘ between the zero and b as it indicates 0′bummers claim to Irish ancestry and his knack for blarney or lies.

        • eyeswideopen

          Jeff, I took them from everywhere, I can get you more, there are tons of sites documenting his faux pauxs (lies). He just can’t help himself. Besides, he is just entertainment, he doesn’t check the facts. He even made that statement on the “View”. Can’t fault a man when he admits he lies.

          • JeffH

            Probably the same way you check your facts before you speak(type).
            By the way, are you a Ron Paul supporter?

          • JeffH

            meant for EWO

          • d3fault

            The thing that always sticks in my mind about name calling is “Sticks and stones may break my bones….”, so I can’t figure out why Sara got indignant over that. Kind of a small issue to me as I have n/p with the word. Maybe Rahm has gotten under her skin. He certainly gets under mine.
            btw: I love Sara and my son’s getting much needed history lessons from Glenn, as they sure don’t teach them in college. :=)

          • California70

            Personally, I don’t think Sarah Palin is worried about the “R” word as much as she was just giving back what the democrats are always putting out, i.e., always acting o-f-f-e-n-d-e-d whenever these idiots say a word that in not PC.

            It’s time we give-what-we-get. Rahm Emmanuel is a snake and a subversive and who know’s what else. Chicago politics is rotten to the core, and so are the politicians in that system.

            The progressives have succeded in making a lot of dim people neurotics everytime they hear something that isn’t PC they consider themselves o-f-f-e-n-d-e-d.

            If this still the USA? People didn’t get offended when I grew up here, we had enough sense to know when someone was well mannered or if they were just a rude oaf. Rudeness was never acceptable and always frowned upon. We simply “wrote off” those who did not have the good grace to know the difference. We don’t need to be PC. We just need to teach our children some modicum of decent manners.

          • d3fault

            EWO, you actually had to go back to 2007/11/15 to find a GB lie? Pretty darned good record then in my opinion. Are you aware that Glenn has had Ron on several times and use Ron to back up what’s he’s saying?

          • JeffH

            He was a CNN employee then. He has sure done his homework since those days at CNN. How else could he become a “household” name in the liberal camps.

          • eyeswideopen

            dfault, nope had to cover the different time frames, so the Conservatives, couldn’t say, oh that was just a recent mistake. When you post here, you should try and get opposing web sites, and give many examples, as they always want to dismiss the facts. Giving a variety, makes them be more creative when trying to re-write history. lol

          • DaveH

            Please, Jeff, she doesn’t have a clue about the kind of freedom Ron Paul stands for.

          Hey, not my fault that Glen lies. There are so many more but I am bored. Did you also know that he uses vicks to make himself cry? LMAO, what a fake. He started out in the Tampa Bay area, so we are used to his lying. Use to have to go home and check out his statements almost every day. He is funny, I’ll give him that. I pity the unknowning innocent who watches and doesn’t know his history.

          • Harold Olsen

            Correction. Beck is from Moses Lake, Washington and he got his start in radio as the midnight DJ on KUBE here in Seattle. Or maybe you mean his start as a commentator. As far as I’m concerned, he’s nothing but a buffoon.

          • Joe H.

            Eyes,
            Compare all the lies that Obummer has told in the last TWO YEARS to the lies that Glenn has told in the last TWO YEARS!!!! What does it come out to? 100 to 1???? 99 to none???? As to the vicks, post a site for that other than puff and toke!!!!

          • Tim

            Sir, you have more intelligence than all of these rightwingers put together. You and I know that Beck lies all the time. He, like the other talking heads of Fox Noise, are brainwashing lots of nieve Americans. I would never get my news from Fox Noise. I watch MSNBC or CNN for real news reporting.

          • Joe H.

            You DO know what MSM stands for don’t you? Mostly Sh!t Media!!!!

      • DaveH

        From a trustworthy source:
        http://www.forbes.com/2009/06/03/cap-and-trade-intelligent-investing-carbon.html

        “$60 billion to $80 billion each year”. For the math-challenged that is about 160 to 240 dollars a year for each man, woman, and child in the country. For a family of 4 that would be $640 to $960 a year. A mere drop in the bucket for Government Big Spenders. And knowing that Government typically understates its future costs, the sky is the limit.
        And that for a Global Warming Hoax that is becoming more and more discredited as time goes on.

        • Jana

          DaveH, these are good sites.
          Eyes always gravitates to the lefty liberal sites that spew their lies like water. She probably still believes in global warming too. When I go to the sites that she recommends it is always with great caution. They are filled with plain ole propaganda for the Progressives.

            Obviously something’s wrong with this particular board, as my posts are not going where intended. So, I’m going to quit commenting here.

        eyes,
        Obummer himself said that the bills would “necessarilly” go up!! I remember he used the words a lot!!!!sounds like more than a postage stamp to me!!!

      • DaveH

        From a trustworthy source:
        Cap and Trade will cost “$60 billion to $80 billion” a year. That’s about $180 to $240 a year for each person in the US. So, for a family of 4 it would be about $640 to $960 a year. That for a theory (Global Warming) that has been proven to be junk science driven by politics:
        http://www.forbes.com/2009/06/03/cap-and-trade-intelligent-investing-carbon.html
        And that is just the tip of the iceberg as Government will have taken another giant step in the direction of total domination of the citizens.

      Hey Joe, read the link below. Beck was found in three instances of lying. Now you can turn back into a pumpkin.

      http://www.politifact.com/personalities/glenn-beck/

      • Joe H.

        tim,
        Beck was not the only one that said the SEIU leader was the most frequent visitor to Obummer. The only way to prove or disprove this is to check out the sign in book and I doubt politifact checked that.
        the statement about dogs was an attempt at humor and yes I do remember him saying it! Of course unless it’s Obummers press secretary making the joke, it’s not funny to you libbers!
        Let’s see three lies… now let’s compare that to the lies that Obummer told!!! “no illegal aliens will be covered by the new health care bill. Ding, ding, ding!!! s there was no way of checking the status of them he knew this was a lie when he said it!! I will have the most transparent presidency in history! Ding, ding, ding! He has had more closed door meetings than any other president in recent history! I will not have any special interest people in my cabinet! Yeah wright!! I will close GITMO in my first year! Whoopsie!!! I will look forward and not focus on the past! Wow!! blame Bush, Blame Bush, ECT! You will still be able to see your Dr. same as before! WHAT?!?! Mayo clinic in Arizona has announced that they willnot accept anymore
        medicare patients after the first of next year. Says Government doesn’t even cover cost of them let alone the overhead involved with these patients and the wait is unconcienable!!! Now I know that’s only six lies, but that’s just off the top of my head without checking my hand notes so it isn’t half of them!!

    Hey Nancy,

    Neither Rush or Glenn have used terms such as Rahm did. And neither is a racist, such as your good buddy Rahm and most other liberals.

    Rush, Beck, et al see no skin color, just character.

    The only problem is that you are too ignorant to understand what they are saying. You and others with your mindset have straight line thinking that is going to be the ruination of this country.

    • Jana

      In fact, Glenn has a mentally and physically chalenged child himself.

      • http://personalliberty.com Dorothy

        Jana Beck, probably doesnt use the word challenged, he said his son is handicapped.He refused to use the word handi cappable. That was a statement that he made to Sarah Palin.

        • Jana

          Yes Dorothy, now that you mention it, I saw that too, but couldn’t remember his exact words.

  • Ken Roberts

    Beck Limbaugh did not use the word retarded in any manner that would demean any one Rahmitdownyourthroat did and used the f word along with it, wake up people Beck has a child with disabilities he would be the very last one to demean them . the context that the word is used in, I hear that all the time and clearly it has a meaning here, Beck and Limbaugh did not use it in a bad way but Rahm did.

  • Peter

    Come on people. Lets have a little truth telling here. Obama lies, Palin lies, Bush lies, Cheney lies’ Mc Cain lies. All politicians lie, it’s part of the required skill set of all politicians. Glenn beck is a lier, and so is fatso Limbaugh. Political commentators have the same skill sets as politicians. They tell lies.
    Ir doesn’t matter which political party you choose they all lie. Seldom does the political rhetoric match the actions of the politician. Calling Obama a liberal or Bush a conservative denies the truth as well. Raham Immanuel is an attack dog. That is why he is in the position he is in. He is no different than any others who have occupied similar positions in in the White house. Calling another politician or office holder retarded is mild compared to some of the language or references used behind closed doors in Washington. I think it is a little disingenuous to think that Emmanuel remarks were intended to denigrate those who are mentally challenged or have learning disabilities.
    Rahm Emmanuel should be canned, but not for the language he uses. He has other traits that make his language and choice of words look pristine. Palin is a joke, and evidence that some of our population
    support the mentally handicapped.

    • American Citizen

      The language you use says a lot about your character.

      It seems to me that Sarah supports the handicapped as she could have aborted her son when she learned of his Down’s Syndrome, but she chose life for him. What would you have done?

    • JeffH

      I think all liberals and Democrats should continue to “ditch” Palin.

      • Curtis S

        Ah… the lovely Sarah Palin and the conservative talking points. Today was too much. Sarah took some shots at the President for using a teleprompter. Somehow, Sarah and ultra-conservatives think this is strange. George Bush used a teleprompter from 2000 to 2008, albeit not very well. The great communicator, Ronald Reagan used a teleprompter back in the 80s. EVERYBODY on TV uses a teleprompter. Sarah and the ultra-conservatives are using their very own Saul Alinsky (Karl Rove) tactic when they mention Obama’s “smooth words” and his use of a teleprompter.
        SO what was Sarah doing while she was using the ridiculous teleprompter “attack”? Well it seems Sarah doesn’t use a teleprompter… no… that would be wrong. But she was caught referring to notes she had written… looks like in fine point, felt pen… on the palm of her hand!! Obama’s a trickster for using a teleprompter, but Sarah’s got “crib notes” written on her hand!! Just like a child, trying to cheat on a test!! Hahaha This is who you want as your President? Hahaha. She needed to write the words “energy”, “tax” and “Lift American Spirits” on her hand? She had to cheat to remember those simple words? Yep. Palin all the way in 2012! Just don’t let her hands get too sweaty or she’ll forget what she wants to say. Hahaha. Tell me you wouldn’t still vote for this person? What a hypocrite. What a maroon. What a wholesome example of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!! What a fraud. hahaha

        • dragon5126

          Grow up Curtis, Every course you can take on public speaking tells you to use an outline to stay on track, you call them crib cards. Sara isn’t reading a speech that someone else wrote, she is speaking live, in her own words. Something you can’t do very well. Your comment about Regan using a teleprompter is mostly incorrect. While all the prez’s do use them Reagan in particular is noted for catching heat for not following his and regularly ticked off his speech writers by winging it on his own. Next time get your facts straight before you shoot off your mouth.

          • Joe H.

            dragon5126,
            Very good answer!!! Reagan was famous for pi..ing off his speech writers and did it VERY often, showing that he could talk without using them, whereas Obummer can’t!!!

          • Curtis S

            Hey Dragon… couple of things.
            Point One: Yes, they’re called crib “cards” not the palm of your hand.
            Point Two: “…speaking live, in [my] own words. [Is] Something you [I] can’t do very well.” ??? Really? How would you know? Have you ever heard me speak? When I was a broadcaster, on-air talent, DJ whatever you want to call it, my listeners were in the hundreds of thousands. My consistently high ratings prove your statement to be nothing more than a weak personal attack based on a wild guess, and of course, absolutely false.
            Point Three: The fact still remains, that ALL presidents use teleprompters. The fact that Reagan was smart enough and a “great communicator” who could deviate from the script or improve or enhance a speech “on-the-fly”, is true… but he still used a teleprompter.
            Point Four: Writing notes on your hand is juvenile and when you’re taking pot-shots at someone else for using a teleprompter while you’ve scrawled notes on your hand… it’s hypocritical and incredibly disingenuous.
            Point Five: Get MY facts straight? You can’t honestly say that to me with a straight face can you? hahaha

          • Joe H.

            Yup, he was the jock for polka, polka, polka every sixth Wednesday of the month. course it was in the middle of the desert thus the hundredsof thousands of listeners…..NO COMPETITION!!!!

  • http://churchlionjudah@verizon.net B. Lee Pemberton

    Rahm Emanuel -like the rest of the Chicago-style misfits and thugs Obama has surrounded himself with- should be removed from taxpayer payrolls and investigated for possible Federal prosecution. What we are looking at is the new provisional government that will replace the Federal government if is Obama is successful in overthrowing America’s Constitutional government and enslaving all Americans with his “death-panel “health-care” reform”.

      It isn’t that they are racial. It’s that it is equivalent to using a racial slur. She equated it to using the N word but did it politely without stooping to actually saying it.

  • ACRScout

    I always find it comical when people accuse Limbaugh of lying. He’s a “COMMENTATOR”, he gives opinions not facts. When he uses facts about liberals lies, he generally backs these claims by playing clips of the the liberals saying their own words. To flippantly call him a liar for repeating the words of liberals is the height of ignorance by his critics.

    • dragon5126

      The other thing I laugh about when it comes to Rush is people still calling him names that reference his weight. It shows how ignorant they are… Teddy Kenedy was way more overweight than Limbaugh is now. Amd just look down the line of the dems in congress they either look like they are being fattened for the slaughter or dying of aids. Which brings me to another point. With Murtha dying, does anyone else get the idea that God is trying to tell the Dems something? First Kennedy, then Murtha, any bets that there will be more before the midterm election?

    For some reason, Nancy is among those American females who cannot stand Sarah Palin. I have friends in that group.

    When asked why, the number one answer is that she is “stupid.”

    Actually, I’m afraid it is because Palin is intelligent, beautiful, witty, charming, and influential.

    Comments from the Nancies of the world remind me of a gaggle of 8th grade girls in the hall verbally ganging up on the new girl in school.

    And no liberty train….Radicals in the 60′s convinced us that “one drop of black blood” categorizes a person as Black. Been that way ever since.

    • libertytrain

      I was there in the 60′s – had black friends, white friends, mixed blood friends, red friends, yellow friends – don’t recall radicals convincing me of anything — I guess I was lucky –

  • MarkBench

    And oh yes….Palin had 4 words written in her hand, as sub headings for a 40 minute speech..lol..4 words for a 40 minute speech hardly compares to being unable to deliver a speech without reading all of it.

    As anyone can see, almost every public speaker uses some form of notes.

    The level of blind hatred required to suspend logic and intelligence in the silly criticism of Palin’s use of topic reminders is typical of the Left, and disturbing.

    The teleprompter speech to the 6th grade class for which the President got a total pass from the state run media, should be a concern to any thinking adult.

    • Curtis S

      No, Mark it’s much more professional to flip up your hand and twist your head at a weird angle to steal a glimpse at the talking points you wrote on your hand? Yes, Sarah Palin had four words written on her hand. That’s the point! It’s not blind hatred, it’s more of a “roll on the floor laughing your @ss off”. “As anyone can see almost every public speaker uses some form of notes”. Bravo Mark! Yes, the grown-up, professional public speakers use teleprompters. The great communicator, Ronald Reagan used a teleprompter. If a teleprompter isn’t your style you could go “old school” and go with notes on index cards or paper. Writing sh!t on your hand? Didn’t that stop being clever in grade 7? It’s absolutely hilarious that Sarah has the audacity to criticize ANYONE using a teleprompter when she is trying to sneak a peek at the talking points written on the palm of her hand. Did she really think no one would notice? hahaha That just makes her a hypocrite and not a very clever one. She couldn’t remember “energy”, “tax”, “lifting American spirits” and “budget cuts”? I’ve seen ONE picture of her hand and I’ve already got it memorized. If she’s writing that on her hand, you just have to admit you can’t call her intelligent anymore. Not smart and a major league hypocrite. Sarah Palin is definitely beautiful, charming and she’s the next George Bush. She’s a dullard and nothing more than a figurehead for backstage power-brokers. Go Palin 2012. hahaha

    We’ve seen enough Obama speeches to realize that the calm, charismatic, clear-spoken, smooth, and articulate politician that left-wing activists and media members want to portray is nothing of the sort. Take Obama’s teleprompter away, and out come the ums and errs. But, because it’s Obama, his rabid followers are full of excuses: he can’t remember everything, he gives so many speeches, the teleprompter is just like having note cards. Blah, blah, blah.
    However, replace the word Obama with the word Palin — as in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — and the left wingers sing a different tune. It’s ok for Obama to read word for word from a teleprompter, but heaven help us if Sarah Palin uses note cards during the speech! But Palin had the last laugh, and the left ends up looking stupid and hypocritical. Nice job!
    It turns out that left wing bloggers and media members are having a field day because Palin, during her speech and Q&A session at the recent Tea Party convention, had notes jotted on the palm of her hand. Yes, you heard it right… the left is in an uproar because Palin scribbled a few talking points on her hand. The world is surely coming to an end.

    Sarah Palin versus Rush Limbaugh! Palin believes Limbaugh’s repeated use of the word “retard” yesterday was “crude and demeaning,” her spokesperson emails.

    So much for your theory Nancy, Beck also uses the “R” word and has not been rebuked by Palin but, neither of these individuals holds the title of White House Chief of Staff.

  • s c

    Earth to Nancy. No, we don’t have to love Sarah Palin (literally or figuratively). Your ‘logic’ makes me curious. What do Limbaugh and Beck have to do with anything?
    The chief weasel in this article is Rahm Emmanuel, a prime example of what can happen when a political ‘experiment’ escapes from Frankenstein’s laboratory and gets into politics. Jack the Ripper didn’t have it as easy as Emanuel.
    Don’t be surprised if Emanuel gets scarce in the near future. He and most of Obummer’s pals have much to answer for. In some ways, the obummer crowd makes your favorite scapegoat (Bush, the guy you think is still in the White House) look like a choir boy. Enjoy the coming circus, Nancy. Long live the Law of Unintended Consequences – and poetic justice.

    Why would Mrs Palin call out Rush, every time he used the word retard, it was a direct quote of Rahm Emanuel.

    Apparently it is reprehensible for Rush to quote the news and disseminate it, but a different standard is used a liberal who utters it in the first place.

    Rush should be applauded or not sweeping it under the rug. Illustrating the duplicity of the main stream news should be encouraged, not vilified.

    Whether Beck or Limbaugh are in the White House or not doesn’t matter. Both of them have a large following of dittoheads. For them to use the R word is just as bad as Emanuel using it.

Democrats are attempting to find solutions to the nation’s problems, while Republicans are on the attack and only interested in posturing for the next election.
