Sarah Palin called MSNBC hosts and guests "despicable" for mocking Mitt Romney's adopted infant grandson, Kieran Romney, who is black.
During a segment of “Melissa Harris-Perry” on Sunday, the panelists joked about a viral photo of the Romneys sitting in an idyllic setting surrounded by their 21 grandkids including little Kieran dressed in a pink onesie.
One of the panelists, actress Pia Glenn, sang “one of these things is not like the other,” while another joked that the photo was representative of the Republican Party's lacking diversity.
Chalk up yet another failure to the Obama administration's efforts to socialize America.
Barack Hussein Obama's attempts to regulate and control this country's banking and auto industries have failed. As will his energy cap-and-tax bill, aka The BIG Lie. And Obama's health care reform bill is floundering like a fish out of water.
Never has a president done so much in such little time to undermine and threaten this country's economy!
Critics point to Obama's efforts to sneak a tax increase and regulatory scheme under the umbrella of an Energy bill as proof that Obama is doing too much too soon, and with disastrous results.
In an editorial on Washingtonpost.com, Sarah Palin, who is stepping down as Governor of Alaska to focus on family and lucrative speaking engagements, wrote:
I am deeply concerned about President Obama's cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.
There is no denying that as the world becomes more industrialized, we need to reform our energy policy and become less dependent on foreign energy sources. But the answer doesn't lie in making energy scarcer and more expensive! Those who understand the issue know we can meet our energy needs and environmental challenges without destroying America's economy. READ MORE...
Palin also warned that the job losses now covered under a provision in Obama's cap-and-tax plan would lead to the government spending billions more in the form of welfare and handouts. Which, of course, leads to the sort of change that no one -- but Obama -- wants.
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will appear on FOX News tonight to say a big 'I Told Ya So' in the face of a new report that Barack Hussein Obama will spend this country into a $11 trillion dollar deficit.
Additionally, critics are wondering what happened to those jobs promised in Obama's wasteful $800 billion Stimulus package as the unemployment sits at its highest level in 25 years.
Instead of finding solutions to fix our ailing economy, Obama is doggedly pursuing Congressional approval for his wasteful health care plan that is doomed to failure. There's that word 'wasteful' again.
I'm not sure what part of "Obama isn't qualified to run this country" -- people don't understand.
As President Obama vows to spend the 'stimulus' faster, Governor Palin tells host Sean Hannity: 'You gotta quit digging that hole!'
HANNITY: What do you make of – look at the state of the economy now...
PALIN: Well, when you consider that the federal government is about eleven trillion dollars in debt, and we’re borrowing more to spend more.. it defies any sensible economic policy that any of us ever learned through college. It defies economy practices and principles that tell ya ‘you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial hole’
"America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government largesse. We’re borrowing. We’re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own sixty percent of GENERAL MOTORS – or the U.S. government does… But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? It’s China. So that leads you to have to ask who is really going to own our car industry than in America."
HANNITY: You know but it goes back - It does go back a little to the campaign. I mean, ‘spread the wealth, patriotic duty…’
Katie Couric continued with her silly line of questioning in a recent interview with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. When asked what newspapers and magazine she read, Palin wisely avoided the question because it would indicate her favoritism for certain newspapers and magazines over others.
In this video, drama queen Sean Combs is totally clueless to Palins' savvy PR move to avoid a loaded question.
Why would Palin favor one newspaper over another -- especially since she's running for vice-president? Why doesn't someone ask Sen. Barack Obama what magazines and newspapers he reads and see if he answers?
To think that Palin couldn't recall the name of a single national newspaper or magazine is ludicrous and absurd! And shame on Katie Couric for baiting Palin with these meaningless questions. How do these stupid questions determine Palin's qualifications to be vice-president? Couric can't even hide her obvious envy of Palin.
This video shows the level of immaturity of people like Sean Diddy Combs who fear this woman simply because she's a strong female.
I suspect that most of Gov. Sarah Palin's critics oppose her simply because she's a female.
Surely the same people who clown Palin for her few misquotes are familiar with Dan Quayle? Quayle was the vice-president under the senior George Bush from 1989 -- 1993.
Quayle will forever be remembered as the VP who had to be corrected by a grade schooler when Quayle misspelled the word "potato" on a classroom blackboard -- in full view of national media cameras. The media ate that story up for weeks!
Dan Quayle was so error-prone that national news networks often led off their nightly broadcasts with silly Dan Quayle-isms.
Media outlets sent crews to follow Quayle's every move -- hoping for their next headline.
Comedians regularly used Dan Quayle misquotes as material in their stand up routines.
In those days, we were in a better place. The mood of the country was more upbeat then. We had a sense of humor which is sadly lacking in today's society.
No one seemed to worry too much that Dan Quayle was one heartbeat away from touching the nuclear codes.
I've compiled a list of Dan Quayle's more famous misquotes that left most of America rolling with laughter. Compared to Quayle, Sarah Palin is a genius:
"If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure."
"I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix."
Welcome to President Bush, Mrs. Bush, and my fellow astronauts."
"One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president, and that one word is ‘to be prepared’."
"Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children."
"It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
"What a waste it is to lose one’s mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is."
It has been confirmed that the McCain camp did not know about VP moderator Gwen Ifill's book which basically predicts Sen. Barack Obama will win the presidency. The controversial book is due to be released on Nov. 4 -- the day of the elections. This, according to Greta Van Susteren on her blog:
I confirmed for us here on GretaWire: the McCain campaign did NOT know about Gwen Ifill’s book (I think I told them when I made my efforts - emails about midnight - to find out!) I am stunned….the campaign (actually both) should have been told before the campaign agreed to have her moderate. It simply is not fair - in law, this would create a mistrial.
The moderator of tomorrow's much-hyped showdown between Senator Joe Biden (D) and Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is putting out a book that promises to "shed new light" on Sen. Barack Obama.
The book's release date is being timed to coincide with the election of this country's new leader on Nov. 4.
Gwen Ifill is confident that Mr. Obama has the election in the bag. But should the moderator of such an important debate show such blatant bias towards one party? Couldn't she wait until after the debate to announce this book of hers?
Apparently, Ifill doesn't care if we know she's biased. She has faced criticism before for not treating candidates of both major parties the same.
During 2004's vice-presidential debate -- which Ifill moderated -- there was an intense exchange between Democrat John Edwards and Republican Dick Cheney.
Cheney asked Ifill for more time to rebut Edwards accusations because 30 seconds wasn't enough.
"Well, that's all you've got!" she snapped at Cheney. Later, Ifill told the Associated Press that the Democrats were "delighted' with her answer.
And viewers of PBS' Washington Week, which Ifill hosts, reported a "look of disgust" on Ifill's face when she reported on Sarah Plain's speech during the Republican National Convention. (Source)
Last week, presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama launched a 'Truth Squad' in Missouri asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign."
When I saw this video last week on The Huffington Post, I thought it was a joke. I assumed it was an SNL type parody and I kept waiting for the punch line -- only, it never came.
In an earlier post, I told you that Obama's camp reached out to TV stations in Ohio and Pennsylvania to block the airing of a National Rifle Association ad.
With this latest move, Obama takes us closer to an Orwellian society and gives new meaning to the words 'BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.'
As if being raped wasn't bad enough, a shameless aide in Barack Obama's camp searched for a rape victim to appear in a political ad.
According to Politico.com, Kiersten Steward, director of public policy at the Family Violence Prevention Fund, was approached by the campaign staffer to serve as the go between for the campaign and rape victims.
"Obviously, this is a big ask and I haven’t seen a script but presumably it will be a brief 'this is what happened to me, we need someone who will fight for women like me, these are the guys to do it,'" Steward wrote in a Sept. 15 e-mail. "Again, that’s just my assumption, given how these things usually go."
Steward said the Obama campaign would have a crew in Washington and was hoping to film that week.
But one rape victim in Virginia declined to appear in the ad.
Mikele Shelton-Knight said in an interview that she was glad the Obama campaign was seeking to highlight the issue.
"The more discussion about this the better," said Shelton-Knight, a full-time victims advocate in the Richmond area.
While she wasn't told about the specifics of the ad, Shelton-Knight said she thought that the ad might be about an obscure law in Wasilla, Alaska, that charged rape victims for their own exams.
But as Shelton-Knight pointed out, the law was on the books before Sarah Palin became mayor of the small city and the law was voted off the books in 2000.
The ad was never filmed probably because Obama's camp couldn't find a "rape victim" who wanted to go on camera to speak about her harrowing experience to millions of people.
I'm still surprised that anyone in that camp was that insensitive to make such a request of a rape victim especially since many states right here in this country still charge victims for the cost of the rape kit exam.
It wasn't until exhaustive lobbying by Shelton-Knight and others that Virginia localities finally agreed to absorbed the cost of the exams last year. (Source)
