Once again we see that the Obama administration does not believe that the law applies to them. In a letter to Dept. of Interior Sec., Ken Salzar, several congressmen remind the Secretary that they are the ones who have the ability to designate public lands “Wilderness Areas”.
“As you know, the Wilderness Act gives the U.S. Congress — and only the U.S. Congress — the power to designate public lands as protected “Wilderness Areas.” Secretarial Order 3310 appears to be an underhanded attempt by DOI to circumvent Congress and the federal rulemaking process…”
For a President who says he “is focused like a laser on jobs”, it seems like the focus is how many he can get rid of, not how many he can “create or save”. Of course, perhaps he doesn’t realize that this will kill jobs, or maybe it’s all George W. Bush’s fault. After all, he has only been President just over two years.
But the uncertainty of what the administration is trying to do is going to lead to instability in the economy of the area.It also puts many proposed energy projects off the books. That leads to a loss for all the country, not just the west. With the increase in the cost of corn, up 56% since June, it will drive the price of gas up, too.
This new “wild lands” policy introduces more uncertainty and will arbitrarily delay the reasonable use and development of our public lands. In order to prevent a collapse of several rural economies in the West and forestall continued uncertainty and job loss in western public land states, we urge you to withdraw Secretarial Order 3310 and work with Congress to devise balanced policies for our public lands.
Then you add in the instability in the Middle East, where does that leave us. Think about it for a few moments. If Egypt changes leadership, who will control the Suez canal? Will it be someone friendly to us? Factor in the loss of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and off shore in the rest of the U.S. And don’t forget the closing of some of the coal mines and the increased regulations that will force some of the coal fired energy plants to close.
We probably won’t have gas lines like we had in the late 70′s, but the price may be so high that fewer people will be able to drive. Perhaps that is their desire, but what about the people who live outside the cities and have to drive. If they can’t pay for gas to get to work in the factories, chicken processing plants and on the farms, will those industries and farms be able to stay afloat?
It is like a cascade. Increased costs in one area, sooner or later, lead to increased cost in another. Is that their desire. Do they care so little about the actual people in this country that they would destroy the infrastructure and industry to restore what they think is the superior environment? Is that what we elected them for?
I know that wasn’t what I had in mind when I voted. I wanted a President who would provide security for the country and the people. Not a President that wanted to get rid of the people so the environment could be secure. In my book, people come first. I want a country for my kids, but if the administrations current policies continue, it will wind up being a country without kids.
Ever wonder what Obama and his administration really think? Every once in awhile, one of them will tell you.
“It is an education problem. I think we have to educate them,” said John Holdren, who heads the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, in an interview broadcast Sunday.
How arrogant!!! It seems this administration thinks that anyone who disagrees with them, are stupid! Not that there is a genuine difference of opinion, but that we don’t know anything and we need to be educated.
Holdren, asked about advancing Obama’s agenda in the face of skepticism, said the scientific evidence of dangerous human-induced climate change is powerful. “The science of climate change is really very clear in its essentials,” Holdrensaid on Platts Energy Week.
In the next few weeks and months we will find out what kind of man Barack Obama is. Will he wind up being a Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan. I feel for him, this is what will probably decide, more than anything else, what place in history he will hold.
There are no easy answers, and I won’t pretend to know enough to comment on the situation in the Middle East. It seems that even those who are experts are not sure where we will end up, but we all know that it will decide how our future will be, too. Instability is never good, especially in the part of the world where 40% of our oil, either comes from, or travels through.
If the current instability spreads, the next question will be how far? And who next? Or if the Egyptian people manage to get rid of their current government, what will the next one be like? Will they remain friends of the U.S.? Or will they be antagonistic to us?
What will Obama do? Will he simply wait and watch to see which way the wind is blowing and then try to wind up supporting the winner? Or will he choose a side and risk losing. If I had to guess, I would guess that he will wait. This is one of the 3am phone calls that Hillary warned us about. This will either prove the mettle of the man, or delegate him to the history books as another Jimmy Carter.
For the sake of our country, I pray that he makes the right choices. After all, it is not just the Middle East that is poised for destruction. Truly, the whole world is waiting to see the outcome.
I started to write about how I found it curious that our children are not learning what the Constitution, but then I realized that it is not curious at all. It is deliberate on the part of our country that hates itself. I read one time, that Democrats were usually unhappy, whereas Republicans were usually happy. Perhaps they should change that to Democrats hate themselves and everything around them, while Republicans know how to love, whether it is family, friends or country.
Take Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, for instance. The vitriol that some Democrats spew about Sarah Palin goes beyond what has ever been thrown at any person in the history of our country. I doubt that even Benedict Arnold was hated as much as she is. As for the reasons, they are hard to understand. You would think that a woman who chose to raise a child who was disabled would be appreciated, but instead she is mocked, her child is mocked, and she is called dumb.
I would think that at the very least the Kennedy’s, who had their own problems with a disabled sister, would at least appreciate the fact that she loves her child, as much as they loved their sister, and aunt. The Kennedy’s invested a lot in people with disabilities, both in the Special Olympics, special education, and the many other opportunities that were not available in the early twentieth century.
Then you have Barack Obama. He is not hated, his policies are. But Democrats try to turn that hatred of his policies into an actual hatred of the man. Perhaps they are simply trying to justify their hatred of Sarah Palin. Republicans are called racists, and told that their hatred of Obama’s policies, are just make-believe. That if Bush did the same thing, that they would be perfectly happy. I can’t speak for everyone, but I speak for a lot of people who were just as unhappy with Bush and his policies, as we are with Barack Obama.
Perhaps we don’t have to worry about China invading the US in the future. It seems that our government is selling them the country a little bit at a time. And since the mainstream media doesn’t bother to report it, it is a good thing that there is alternative media to pick up some of the slack.
Take the story I have linked to below, I was blown away to learn how much our security has been sold out. It say’s in one part “Quietly, the U.S. has created 257 foreign trade zones, or FTZs, through out the United States, designed to extend special U.S. custom treatment to U.S. plants engaged in international-trade-related-activities.
The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods, cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout North America.
There is nothing in the United States government’s description of FTZs that would prevent a foreign government, like China, from operating a shell U.S. company that is in reality owned and financed by the Chinese government and operated through a Chinese government-owned corporation.”
Frankly, that scares me. I would like to think that our government was concerned with the security of the country. Further in the article it points out that China is demanding 50% as a condition of doing business with them. I understand China’s desire to do business with and in this country. What I don’t understand is why our government is giving away so much of our treasure without being able to have the same concessions from China. It seems as if the Chinese recognize the value of their security, while our government seems intent on giving up ours.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he-himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time.. He made this statement:” This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe , we shall become as corrupt as Europe .
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
I wish we could get this out to everyone!!!
I’m doing my part. Please do yours.
This is one of my favorite groups and one of my favorite songs. It just pretty much says it all. Thank you Lord, for giving us life, I praise you name and I give you all the glory. In you wonderful Sons name, Amem
We, as Americans, are a generous people, but there is a point where we must say, no more. We have reached that point, with this administration, in so many ways. What will it take to make this country secure, if our own government is determined to prevent it? What will it take for the people to reach a point to where they are currently in Egypt? Are they deliberately pushing us in that direction.
As parents, the security and safety of our children is the most important thing in the world to us. When we fail in keeping that child safe, it is the most horrible feeling in the world, and yet our leaders seem as if they could care less. It is their obligation, it is what they were elected to do.
When they abrogate that obligation, what right do they have to remain in power? Our children deserve better. They are being left with a massive debt, that may never be paid. They are being told that they need to get used to a lifetime of control by the government. They are being told that they cannot expect to have the same lifestyle that their own parents had. And they are being left defenseless by a despotic government that cares nothing for the safety and well-being of the very people who have elected them into power.
Thankfully, our founders were smart men, who foresaw that there would be people who would use these tactics. And they wrote the remedy into the Constitution, itself. It is up to us, the American people, to make sure that we return to the principles this country was founded on. It is also up to us to use the laws of this country to prosecute those who are trying to destroy it.
I find it extremely interesting that our own government, i.e., the Obama Justice Department would be so totally out of touch with the real world that they would actually collude via emails to attack Az.
But according to this article by Judical Watch, that is exactly what they did. How many more instances of the administration working against the interests of the country are we going to find in the next few years. I sincerely hope that the new Republican controlled Congress does it’s duty to the American people and investigates this administration in every department from the highest level to the lowest level.
It’s too bad that some of the very one’s that need to be investigated the most, are fleeing the ship now that Republicans are in charge. I guess they think that this way they are not subject to investigation, but they don’t seem to realize that even if they don’t answer questions, the people lower than them, may be perfectly willing to implicate them, and if illegal activities are found, they can be prosecuted.
We know that Obama has been pretty good at taking what other people write, instead of coming up with his own, but you would think that, at the very least, his speechwriters could do better than that. It’s such a shame that a man that is proclaimed, by the mainstream media, to be the greatest orator in the world, and the smartest man in any room in the world, would be nothing without the writings of others.
There has been plenty of evidence that everything he has written, supposedly by himself, was actually written by others, except maybe his children’s book. The same media that so loves smearing Sarah Palin for writing notes on her hand, never calls attention to the fact that Barack Obama can’t even remember what he is supposed to say. You would think that he would at least try to memorize part of it, just in case his teleprompter goes out.
I guess that he is so sure that the media is going to make excuses for him, that he really doesn’t care. Seems kind of odd, though, that such a smart man cannot remember his own speech that, presumably, he has taken so much time with.
If he doesn’t have time to learn his speeches, or write his speeches, or meet with his cabinets ministers, perhaps he should cut back a little on all the celebrity smoozing, and gala party’s. Maybe he could show that he is really concerned about saving the country some money.
That would mean actually doing the job he was hired to do, though, and he has been too busy acting the part, that he seems to have forgotten, even the best actors memorize their parts. Wonder how he made it though law school. If would be awfully hard if you are not able to remember the actual laws, and decisions made by the Supreme Court.
Perhaps that is the reason that he has not released his records. It would be nice if we knew what kind of man we have elected to the Presidency. But that is ok, he may think he has prevented us from finding out who the real Barack Obama is, but actions always speak louder than words. Sad, really, that the media think that the man who is smartest, best person in the world, can not remember the words to the speeches that he can not write.
History will be the eventual judge of Barack Obama, so we don’t know the final outcome, but one would think that he would care about how he is remembered. I wonder at the attitude of someone who has no concern with the future, only the now. It tells me that there is something lacking, more than just the inability to remember, or the careless attitude on the value of other people’s writings. It also makes me wonder at the attitude of those admirers of his, the main stream media. If they have no concern for this abduction of property, perhaps they share his values, and maybe we should look a little closer at what they write themselves.
I like this story. The man is not really a fan of Sarah’s and has wrote some negative things about her. But when you weigh the balance, the idea of having a whole month of mostly fair coverage about Sarah Palin sounds really nice. Perhaps this would be a good time for Sarah to get out and start framing her message in the way that she wants, instead of the media that hates her, framing it for her. Or rather against her.
I have a question for all liberal females, does it really make you feel good to watch Chris Matthews treat conservative women this way?
Do you really think that he wouldn’t treat a liberal woman this way.
Have you forgotten how he treated Hillary?
What does NOW really stand for anyway?
Have women gained anything since NOW started working for you?
I think that you are afraid, just like any other abused woman out there, you don’t speak because you are afraid of what they will do to you.
I wrote a post several days ago about overcoming victimhood, I suggest that you read it. You obviously consider yourselves to be victims. Do you like to be able to tell the world that you are “struggling to overcome”?
Maybe it is because all you know how to do is get someone else to do the work for you, and then you complain that they haven’t done enough, or they didn’t do it the right way.
Perhaps that is the real reason that you don’t mind how liberal men treat women. You don’t really want all the obligations that go with success, you just want to make excuses for not getting.
Personally I get tired of you harping about how you are owed this or that, and yet you rundown the very women who have worked hard to obtain the goals that you claim should be given you.
If what you truly wanted was to break the glass ceiling that you claim is out there, you would quit whining and step up and tell the women haters that call themselves men, that you don’t support the way they denigrate conservative women.
All they do is make you look bad. After all, we expect it from them. And if you really think they will stop with conservative women, let me remind you of Hillary Clinton. Are you really happy that they did her the way they did? Especially knowing that she would have been a much better President than Barack Obama?

If you really want an honest assessment of the U.S. economy Marc Faber is pretty good. He doesn’t pull any punches and tells it like he sees it. Probably the only person in the world that has the guts to call Mr. Obama a prostitute.
I don’t have anything invested with his company and don’t claim to be an expert. But from a commonsense viewpoint, he seems to understand what are problems are. Check his article out for yourself.
Marc Faber’s Most Provocative Interview Ever: Compares Obama To A Prostitute, Goes Long Treasurys | Investing Contrarian
I am supposed to do this so here I am.
America used to be great, but we prevailed.
We Were tested.
Bush messed the country up and spent a lot of money, so we spent more money.
Things are better, but they are worse.
Kids don’t have the money to go to college.
I read some sad letters from kids.
Ignore all the pettiness from my side, but tell the republicans to shut up.
We need more government so we can make things better.
We had to do the bailout.
If we hadn’t people would have lost more homes.
We made everything more transparent.
We’re going to add a new tax on the banks.
We stabilized the economy, gave people more unemployment, and less insurance.
We cut taxes, even though we raised a lot of taxes, we did cut some.
Millions of Americans had to spend more on gas and food.
We added a lot more jobs, in the government.
Economists from the left and the right say that it didn’t help the economy. Just look at all the signs that say the recovery act is at work. And look at the bad teachers that the teachers union refused to get rid of, and the money we got from you is paying their salary.
I am calling for a new jobs bill again.
Business has to have the government make them hire and get jobs going.
After all that is where jobs get started.
So we need to spend some more money.
And build high speed trains that go nowhere.
Give me what I want.
We can’t afford to have the economy we had during most of the Bush years.
Washington has been telling us to wait for years, while China, France and others have already built the trains.
I am not interested in protecting the banks, what I really want is to punish the people.
We need to be even more reckless than we were before.
We have to make sure we control the financial institutes so we know everything about how you spend your money.
We just need more green jobs.
And cap and tax.
I know we can’t afford this and I don’t care.
We’ll make others trade with us.
We are going to make sure all the schools teach Saul Alinsky and become sheep.
And we are going to make all of you pay and extra $10,000 dollars so we can tell them what to learn in college and make them serve us afterwards.
We are going to nearly double the child care credit and really bankrupt the country.
I got Obamacare through and I am not going to give it up, even it the Repulicans repeal it and most of America doesn’t want it.
By the way, Michelle doesn’t like fat people.
And you are all just to dumb to understand Obamacare and I didn’t spend enough time explaining it to you.
Premiums are going up and more people are going to lose their insurance.
So, with global cooling, look at what we have done and declare it great. And you better agree.
Now, listen up Congress, give me the rest of what I want.
After all, all this other stuff was all Bush’s fault.
Our efforts to prevent a depression only added a trillion dollars to the debt. That is a trifling amount.
I know how to fix the country, just add some more money. We can afford it.
Don’t worry about the debt, I will just set up another commission.
Yesterday the Senate blocked a bill to do that, but who cares, I am going to do it anyway.
The right is telling us to cut the budget and stop spending, but they don’t know anything, they are in the back of the bus.
So instead of listening to the Congress, I am just doing what I want. If it is not in the Constitution, then they need to rewrite it the way I want it.
We know people don’t trust us, but that is there problem. They don’t matter.
Lobbyist need to be transparent unless they work for me.
Congress needs to stop the earmarks, at least the Republicans do.
People need to have everything online so they can see it before they vote on it, except for the bills I want that I can put a lot of regulations in and get more power and money.
Of course the Republicans really need to bow down and kiss my ring.
Everyday is Election day and Republicans need to pay attention to Congress while I get out and campaign.
And the Republicans rhetoric needs to stop.
And in a few days I will tell the Republicans that again, and they better listen.
If the Republicans are not going to let us pass bills without 60 votes, then it’s all their fault.
Let’s don’t worry about all the illegal immigration, they don’t matter to our security. Besides, they vote for me.
Since I took office, we have focused on the terrorist right here at home, you know, all the tea party, and the church goers, and the people who carry around a copy of the Constitution.
And Afghanistan, maybe we will win, or maybe not.
We leave Iraq to it’s people, al Queda isn’t there anymore.
And Jill and Michelle support military families, as long as they are not fat.
These wars are Bush’s fault. And I will get rid of all our nuclear weapons, even if it puts us at risk.
I am going to keep talking to all these rogue countries, because I am such a supreme being that they have to listen to me.
Of course, if they don’t, there will be consequences, I have no idea what they will be, but there will be consequences.
We are providing leadership. We are working with Muslim communities to promote math and science, it wouldn’t do any good to help our own kids.
We have helped Haiti, it’s not my fault that they can’t get it away from the Government there. And it is just too bad that those girls in Afghanistan are getting killed for going to school, we are still getting out of there.
People in other countries love me. And you better love me too.
People are all created equal, but some of us are more equal than others and I get to decide who that is.
My transformation of America is almost complete and you better not get in my way.
Quit listening to TV pundits and talk radio, especially if they don’t agree with me.
I campaigned on “change you can believe in”, it’s your fault that you didn’t believe that I would change the country this way. You should have listened.
We will do what is necessary to raise our poll numbers and get re-elected. If people had done this 50 or 100 years ago, we wouldn’t be here.
We had some setbacks this year, but we are going to get our way by going around the Congress.
Just like the people who write to me, including the eight year old child, tell me to do.
We don’t quit, I don’t quit, so let’s finish destroying this great country.
Remarks by the President in State of the Union Address | The White Househttp://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/remarks-president-state-union-address
What is the definition of arrogance? Thinking you don’t need to listen to anyone but yourself!!! Seems like Barack Obama doesn’t feel the need to talk with anyone but a few loyal members of his inner staff. John Heileman of the New York Magazine says “Barack Obama didn’t bother to confer with a half dozen of his cabinet members during his first two years, not even so much as a phone call.
Why does he have cabinet members if he does not even talk to them? Are they just for show. Sounds like some petty despot who just puts people up for others to look at. He obviously does not think their knowledge or input is worth listening to.
Does anyone really believe that the next two years will be any different? It seems “the Man” is all that is really necessary to lead this country. It seems that he is so smart, that no one else is needed. Well, I have a suggestion, let’s defund all the cabinet and the advisors, then Mr. Obama won’t have to even pretend that anyone else is making decisions.
I am already an admirer of New Mexico’s new governor, Susanna Martinez. I think that she is a no nonsense type of person who knows that if you want to reduce the deficit, you actually have to cut back on spending. If she can get the congress to go along with her and cut red tape and reduce taxes, she should see an improvement in the states future business relations.
According to the Los Angeles Times “She has ordered the state jet sold, cut expenses at the residence by 55%, including letting go two personal chefs who had been working there, cut her cabinet ministers’ salaries by 10%, and frozen all new vehicle purchases, except for law enforcement, among other stringencies”.
Remind you of someone? Kind of sounds like a woman along the lines of Sarah Palin. I wonder if the media will start to treat her with the disrespect that they do Sarah? Would the hispanic community stand up for her? Race does not have anything to do with it, though. As a commonsense conservative, she knows that she has to lead, and lead by example.
In tonights “State of the Union” address, I would like to give Mr. Obama a little advice, stop investing. You have already proven that when it comes to investing you are a loser. None of your picks have proven out and we are now 14 trillion dollars in debt.
You know the old saying “doing the same thing over and over again is insanity”. Well, Mr. Obama, insanity is a very good reason to remove you from office. I doubt that my opinion counts for very much though.
You don’t seem to be real good at listening to others, since you haven’t even met with some of your cabinet ministers in the last two years. It seems that you are so sure you know more than anyone else that you don’t think it is important to even pretend that their opinions are valuable.
Why waste our money then? Just get rid of them. I am sure that the money saved would be very small, but still every penny counts. While you are at it, if you really want to create jobs and get re-elected in 2012, your might start with allowing oil drilling to continue. After all people need gas to go to work.
Of course if they had the gas to go to work, they might have the money to buy food, too. Just think, you might even be able to tell people that you are decreasing the budget because you are creating jobs, and it might actually be true. Not like all those jobs that you “created or saved” from the stimulus.
With the Democrats in Georgia changing parties and now these in Texas, you know that they have really pushed their people to the edge. At the rate they are switching parties, there may not be any democrats let in the south by 2012.
I don’t think that anyone can win the Presidency without some of the south. That is going to leave Obama hanging in the wind. I don’t know how many have switched, but enough to curtail any possibility that they will take back the Georgia House, or the Texas House. Then you count in the redistricting and Texas getting more Representatives and the Republican advantage is pretty good.
I am not sure that Florida will be in play in 2012, I may be reading it wrong, but I think it will be red for the 2012 election. So will Ohio, so where does that leave the Democrats? I would not be surprised if a lot of the people that turned out for Obama in Illinois, and Michigan may stay home. If he can’t keep them, he can not win, as long as we are able to get our people fired up and out voting.
Well, well, could it be that Chicago is not quite as enamored of Obama’s pick for Mayor as he thought. I think this ruling really caught them be surprise. Wonder how the Illinois Supreme Court will rule.
Pamela Geller has a story at Altas Shrugs that is a must read, about Obama not going to veto an UN resolution that I believe makes him a real traitor to this country. Israel is our ally and one of our best friends and if he does not veto this, it puts the state into very real danger. And if he won’t go so far as to veto this resolution, will he do anything to protect them if they are attacked?
Donnie Johnston has a really good article on Sarah Palin at Fredricksburg.com. It is not enthusiastic, but it is one of the fairest evaluations that I have come across. He says “In general, most people–including me–seem to like Sarah Palin. She’s attractive, well-spoken and has a certain air of authority about her. She may not be the smartest person in the world, but she is certainly no idiot.”
Since I don’t think she ever claimed to be the smartest person in the world, I really don’t think it should offend her or anyone else that he doesn’t think she is. We see what the so-called smartest person in the room has gotten us, and quite frankly, it hasn’t been very good.
I do have one problem with his article though. He says “Most women, on the other hand, see her as a scatterbrain”. Since I have no way of knowing which women he is talking to, I can not judge the reality of that statement, but I will tell you this, I have found just the opposite. Most of the women that I talk to, admire her intelligence, her ability to multi-task, her faith in God, and her love of family and country. They admire her commonsense, her determination, and her ability to get her message across. They admire the way she dealt with her pregnancy when she knew her child would be down’s syndrome, and the way she handled the unexpected pregnancy of her oldest daughter being played out on a national stage. They admire the way in which she has stood up to the pressure of the campaign and all the nastiness and hatred that the media and the liberal left have thrown at her.
He is definately right about one thing, 2012 is coming us sooner than we think, and if not Palin at the top of the ticket, then who? I know that she is at the top of my list, and while I know that there is still a little time for her to decide, I really hate waiting. So Sarah is you read this little note in your busy, busy, life, please know that there are many of us who are praying that you answer is “Yes”.
This is almost hilarious. Do you think Dana Milbank will actually get the shakes after a couple of days? It won’t last, it can’t, they will be too afraid that they will miss something. It’s like the person that has to watch the wreck on the side of the road. You want to see what happens but you are afraid you will see something really bad.
I can just see Milbank, Sarah will tweet something, and he will be avidly reading with his fingers poised over the keyboard. He’ll be telling himself, no,no, but his mind will be saying “If you don’t write something, somebody else will, and then you’ll look like a fool.”. Especially if they think that they can turn it against her.
Besides, Sarah will be at the Long Island Business Association next month. Are they really going to pass up an opportunity in their own backyard? Not likely!!!!!
Woo Hoo, one woman hater gone!! Don’t know the reason and quite frankly, do not care. Am so glad to see the man gone. Didn’t watch, but heard enough to wonder at how he managed to stay. Now if we can just get rid of Chris Matthews, so disrespectful to Michele Bachmann and many other conservative women. And then the loudmouth Ed Shultz, Racheal Maddow, and all the others.
Do you ever stop to really think about who is telling us that Sarah Palin is not qualified to be President! Or Sarah Palin is not smart enough to be President. Usually it is the ones that don’t want her to be President.
Is she smart enough to secure the border? Is she smart enough to not bail out the unions and the banks? Is she smart enough to not cut deals with other countries that undercut the security of this county? I think that she is and I think that makes her a whole lot smarter than the man we have in the White House now.
Can you see Sarah Palin bowing and kowtowing to every two bit ruler and dictator like Chavez and the king of Saudi Arabia. I think it would be the other way around. Can you see her letting this country decline because the environmentalist think this country would be better as a third world country. Can you see Sarah Palin shutting down oil drilling, mining, and coal powered energy plants?
Then why in the world would you even hesitate at whether she is qualified or not. She is a lot more qualified than any one else out there, except for maybe Herman Cain. But her energy and charisma is more than his. She has a story that has been lied about by the major media, but she has the ability to change that and any one who thinks otherwise is blind to the rest of the field.
