Sarah Palin Takes Barack Obama To Task Over His Pathetic Speech And Personal Attacks On The American People


Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people. Forcing a conclusion in order to claim a “victory” is not healthy for our country. We hear you say government isn’t always the answer; now hear us — that’s what we’ve been saying all along.

- Sarah Palin

Barack Obama really showed himself Wednesday. Acting more like he was a two bit politician on the campaign trail rather than the President of the United States, Obama belittled his office to no end with cheap rhetoric, lies, and attacks on those who disagree with him.

In all of my life, I have never seen a President who just makes the Office so small, so unimportant. Last night Obama took the status of the Office to a whole new low.

We all know Sarah Palin had already put a double dose of heat on Obama before he ever stumbled into the congressional chamber and started up with his glorified Amway meeting.

This is nothing new for Sarah though, she has had Obama’s number since day one:

“This is a man [Barack Obama] who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word “victory” except when he’s talking about his own campaign.

But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot – what exactly is our opponent’s plan?

What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.”

From Sarah Palin’s Vice Presidential acceptance speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention.

What is really disappointing about Obama’s speech is how he was so far off his game. He was 15 minutes late to start with, prompting Dennis Miller to quip later on The O’Reilly Factor that this was a “ringing endorsement for government efficiency!”

My guess is Obama and his speech writers were still crafting a response to Sarah’s Wall Street Journal op-ed, as well as her Facebook slam from the day before.

During the speech Obama was like a child throwing a temper tantrum. Obama has lost the debate. America wants nothing to do with this fiasco. And instead of cutting his losses, and doing his job, he is bound and determined to shove his communistic, liberty and freedom stealing bill down America’s throat.

Another disappointment, in a night of disappointments, is the fact that Obama said absolutely nothing new. If this guy truly wanted to reform health care, and truly wanted to serve the people, he would have thrown the current mess in the trash can and come out with a clean sheet of paper. He just might have garnered some respect, and support. But he’s just not that smart. Obama is going to ride this ludicrous bill right into the ground.

We learned absolutely nothing new about his plan. All he had was his tired old Saul Alinsky tactics. Don’t talk about the issue, just attack people:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

….any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.”

Rule Number 13 from Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”

This is all Obama and his crew have. They have no real solutions, no new ideas. Obama is stuck trying to relive the failed Roosevelt years, using policies that took a bad recession and turned it into the Great Depression, and made recovery take years longer than it should have.

Obama is FDR on steriods, and without the charm and sophistication.

The democrat/communists haven’t had an original thought in almost a century.

They just keep on pushing those time honored big government ideas that have failed spectacularly since the beginning of time. And this Obamacare debacle is a true failure among failures. This thing will have the competency of the IRS, the efficiency of the Post Office, and the effectiveness of the Katrina recovery efforts.

So, instead of admitting failure, and sitting down with some adults to craft an honest plan, such as those that have been proposed by the Republicans, Obama just attacked everyone.

What was remarkable though, was Obama calling out Sarah Palin. Again, she is so far in his head he can’t resist, but just how pathetic is it to see the President of the United States, in the one of the most formal settings he can be in, have to resort whining and attacking a private citizen?

We all know the answer, of course. Sarah Palin is an actual leader, and Barry is not. Not even close. A lot of folks didn’t understand the logic behind Sarah’s decision to step down as Governor. I think now they understand.

Sarah had already delivered on every single campaign promise she made when she ran for office, and Obama’s Alaska Mafia had made it impossible for her to do her job. Besides costing her personally, the Obama surrogates had cost the Alaska taxpayers millions, and were on track to cost them more, with their continual filing of those bogus ethics complaints.

My guess is about now Obama is wishing he had left her alone to Govern Alaska in peace! Now she has nothing but time, time to take him to task on every move he makes.

Of course, Sarah is not one to let Alinsky style attacks by someone the likes of Obama to go unanswered. Sarah Palin has dealt with a lot tougher foes, and Chicago thug politics do not impress this gal. So last night after Obama’s glorified campaign speech, Sarah penned a scathing retort.

From Sarah’s Facebook Page:

Response to the President’s Health Care Speech

After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems.

Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It’s hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word.

Our objections to the Democrats’ health care proposals are not mere “bickering” or “games.” They are not an attempt to “score short term political points.” And it’s hard to listen to the President lecture us not to use “scare tactics” when in the next breath he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass.

In his speech the President directly responded to concerns I’ve raised about unelected bureaucrats being given power to make decisions affecting life or death health care matters. He called these concerns “bogus,” “irresponsible,” and “a lie” — so much for civility. After all the name-calling, though, what he did not do is respond to the arguments we’ve made, arguments even some of his own supporters have agreed have merit.

In fact, after promising to “make sure that no government bureaucrat …. gets between you and the health care you need,” the President repeated his call for an Independent Medicare Advisory Council — an unelected, largely unaccountable group of bureaucrats charged with containing Medicare costs. He did not disavow his own statement that such a group, working outside of “normal political channels,” should guide decisions regarding that “huge driver of cost … the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives….” He did not disavow the statements of his health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, and continuing to pay his salary with taxpayer dollars proves a commitment to his beliefs. The President can keep making unsupported assertions, but until he directly responds to the arguments I’ve made, I’m going to call him out too.

It was heartening to hear the President finally recognize that tort reform is an important part of any solution. But this concession shouldn’t lead us to take our eye off the ball: the Democrats’ proposals will not reduce costs, and they will not deliver better health care. It’s this kind of “healthy skepticism of government” that truly reflects a “concern and regard for the plight of others.” We can’t wait to hear the details on that; we look forward to working with you on tort reform.

Finally, President Obama delivered an offhand applause line tonight about the cost of the War on Terror. As we approach the anniversary of the September 11th attacks and honor those who died that day and those who have died since in the War on Terror, in order to secure our freedoms, we need to remember their sacrifices and not demonize them as having had too high a price tag.

Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people. Forcing a conclusion in order to claim a “victory” is not healthy for our country. We hear you say government isn’t always the answer; now hear us — that’s what we’ve been saying all along.

    Obama is and always will be be a great con artist , Shara knows it and Congressman Wilson knows it and soon when we succumb to China and loose all this county stands for then we will finally wake up but sadly for our children and grand children it will be to late.

    • Samuel "Sammy" Duggan

      Here, here! Finally someone tells it straight from Americas heart and I am finally hear to say thank you Gary P! America! do you know what day Friday September 11 is? What was our so called presidant doing on September 11? What was Ronald Regan doing on September 11, 2002? No while he was not dead he was protecting the freedom and GOD given rights that AMERICANS need and respect in these terrible and frightfulling times. I am literally shaking at rage on the so called presidents speech which I have not been able to watch yet (I work graveyard shift, but we call it gravyyard shift because we don’t have to do much work! unless that ass**** Remy is supervising).
      Now here it is and remember God gave us the man made rights to amendment to having firearms to PROTECT against unlawful seizures in my home. Does that mean I have to take the government health care in full time? And no, I am not talking about elliptical seizures :)
      As part of my unfairly resolved will to surface the RITES americans have, and have not to forgotten?, I am ready to start a twitor feed so that my actions unto the (un) president will be allowed follow unto my followrs. TENATIVELY, add SAMMYSDUGGSAMERICAINTIMESOFNEEDDIRESEPTEMBER11 to your RSS or twittir mechanism to flow TRUTH in these times!

    • Zarion

      By the way I think everyone needs to do a little unbiased research before they start posting comments bashing anyone.

      Everyone has good points and bad ones. Every Presidential election we have had for a very long time (ever) has been voting for the lesser of two evils and it will be that way untill some serious reform comes to our nation.

      • Justice

        Yes, reform! First of all, get rid of the lobbies! Then have the media do their job, which is primarily to inform the public, and not to make money. The media needs to give each bona fide candidate running for office equal air time, and equal space in magazines, newspapers and online publications. This will provide a level playing field for all ideas and candidates from all kinds of walk. Who says that only the financially affluent should be in government positions? Yet, that’s how things have turned out to be. And that, in fact, is truly un-American!

        Next get rid of this outdated two-party system, that has held itself in power for their own benefit. Encourage and promote new parties to create true pluralism in politics through the necessity of coalitions to form a majority government.

        Consider a change to parliamentarism. The office of Prseident is holding too much power in one person.

        Consider promoting judges who are professionals of law. Stop making them politicians who are either elected, for which they need partisan financial support, or getting them appointed. Both is not furthering the principles of jurisprudential impartiality.

    • Mary A. Sanders

      I do believe our country is heading down the wrong path when we allow the government to control our lives.

      This “health bill” has too many loopholes in it. It will affect every aspect of our personal lives, from a business standpoint w/insurance options to our retired family members who will eventually not be cared for though this government’s plan. Our children and grandchildren are already in great financial debt.

      I remember from my government class in high school we were told that communism would take over America w/o ever firing a shot. It would happen w/i our government as a takeover of the people. This is what I see happening here w/ Pres. (I dislike recognizing this man as our President) Obama’s health care policies.

      Our USA will become a socialist government CONTROLLING its people. Not a government for the people and by the people.

      We the People need to take a stand as our Founding Fathers and God intended for this United States of America!

  2. You’re the best Sarah. Keep it up!

  3. WE LOVE YOU SARAH PALIN!!!!

  4. Ray

    Keeping this (President) accountable should be the focus of the American people. His “Czars” are not accountable to any one by him, and I don’t believe the people of this country need to have leadership without oversight. I didn’t vote for this man, but am obligated to respect the position. I do not however respect the person in this position. He PLAYS

  5. Klattu

    How sad she is not in the White House.
    We could really be heading in the right direction….
    But we are lost and heading into the Dark Ages

    • Lisa

      Maybe we are heading for the Dark Ages, but we’ve been there before and we know the way out.

    • Ken Williams

      Klattu,
      While we may have lost a little (well, a lot ) we have not lost enough to quit. And if it goes so far as to head us into
      the Dark Ages (even though we are on the doorstep) there will remain the spark of the eternal spiritthat makes us true Americans and Patriots. After all, the fight has to be won still.

    • Camensdaughter

      You are soooo right! If the stupid sheeple of this nation had not followed along blindly with Obooboo’s line of garbage, McCain & Palin wold be in the White House and the nation would be running smoothly. So now, how many of these idiots who fell for the line of bulls**t he is still spewing will vote for him in 2012?? I didn’t fote for him in 2008, and I will not vote for him in 2012. I still can’t believe anyone believes anything he says!!

  6. Ray

    The Republican party should keep track of these appointments “Czar” and provide some accountability. Sarah has kept the faith and I hope will continue to speak out about the loose fabrications of fact that this administration is becoming known for. I want someone to hold their collective feet to the fire, and respresent my views, my values and my AMERICA. The United States I served while in the military is swiftly becoming another socilist state amoung many that dot the landscape of Europe. Our “government” now owns the auto industry, the finance community and wants to grow even bigger by becoming our insurance industry. Can somebody say “STOP” enough already!!!!

  7. Oh my God. This administration has demonstrated a perfect example of “politics at its worst”. Last nights speech was pitiful. Every time I turn on the TV, there he is again, Barack giving another speech. He is on the tube, more than the soaps. Guess what? Through these worthless speeches, we have NOT accomplished one single positive thing for the American people. NOTHING!

    I am aware of all the trips abroad for Barack’s family, and Air Force One carting them all over the country; yet all this time, the Oval Office sat empty. Beautiful.

    AIG was fed billions of dollars without anyone monitoring the funds. The true “travesty of power” was the fact that it was handed over in one lump sum. Soooooo the big wigs got raises and bonuses and I am betting that was in the hundreds of millions. Yup, folks we have people out of work, homeless citizens, foreclosures on houses at an alarming rate, millions with NO health care, Veterans not being taken care of properly, and so on, and so on. And within weeks of taking his oath, Barack gave the OK to give monstrous raises to AIG. That money should of been handed over in installments and watched VERY closely. Good God, if this is an indication of what we have to look forward to, people we are screwed. This is a very scary situation.

  8. besST Call out yet now call on all to ask congressmen n sentators to request a impeachment for fail yo perform duties of office

    I have no hope for America…or politicians. They have all sold out the American people and trampled on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Obama is a fascist dictator….the reason why he is a fascist and not a socialist…is because he is being ordered by the cronies that put him in Washington in the first place…namely, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, and all the rest of the Trilateralists, and CFR Cronies. Just another sold out puppet in the White House for the NWO.

    Obama is nothing more than a race pimp overachiever community organizer. He used his position to hustle as a lawyer for ACORN putting pressure on banks to give poor people loans that could not afford them. He is doing then what he is doing now…redistributing the wealth, tearing down the middle class, working class and giving to less unfortunate, and many of them are illegally in our country or refuse to work and make a living. He will use the divide and conquer strategy until he completely destroys this nation. Please don’t get me wrong…I am not giving the scumbag that much credit to this all on his own….oh no….He is just the ‘yes’ man to those really in charge.

    Then their is Sarah….What can I say about her. Just the fact that I feel comfortable calling her Sarah without feeling the least condescending says a lot. If she actually did all that she said, she would be like princess Diana….but the peoples President. They say she lacks brains……and I am sure she don’t know the half of it…but at the same time…I think what she lacks in knowledge she would make up for in spunk. She does not seem to be one that would be bullied. Nor is she air headed or stupid as the corporate media projects constantly. I have just a tiny hope that If she had a relationship with Christ, she would be an answer to the Christian prayers, and the last tinge of mercy bestowed upon this great nation before total and complete destruction.

    I now this for sure…….I would vote for Sarah if she ran….or I will vote for independent all the way down the line without looking. Whoever has the least exposure during the campaigning is the one that I would vote for…because you know he is not going to roll over the corporations and special interest that all the main republican and democrats do.

    I hope and pray that Sarah realizes that republican and democrat are just two sides of the same coin…they are both just two fractions of the same party……..we need someone that will fight for the constitution and the bill of rights period!

    If Palin is so damn good for the country why on gods green earth didn’t she just open her mouth and utter the words that would fix this #$%^ we’re in. ” If I’m elected, my first act will be to amend the constitution to read we will have a balanced budget. How’s about that #$%$ gang. Wanna stop the madness,the graft,corruption,the diminishing of the U.S in the worlds eye to us being just wimps with the biggest stick. “don’t take too big a stick to rock the boat around here. couple planes and someone with the guts to defend his belief at all costs. We need someone with guts not looks. If she’s the real deal call her out on it. Go ahead. Chicken *&%^. She’s the same ilk. You vote to remove this clown from office and then we’ll talk. Keep up the angry voters vids and It will happen. Nothing is gonna shake a leech more than takin it’s blood supply from it. They’ll take what they can before they exit to other great things like supporting cash advance loans and title pawns.

    • Gary P

      I posted your response because I like to illustrate folks that don’t have any idea about what they are talking about.

      I suggest you go pick yourself up a copy of the Constitution, and read it. It’s a simple, and elegant document. In fact, if you go to The Heritage Fondation’s website, they will send you a nice pocket copy, for free. Every American should have one.

      http://www.heritage.org

      Amending the Constitution is serious business, and not easy to do, on purpose. In order to amend the Constitution, it takes 2/3 majority in BOTH houses of Congress. Then once legislation has passed, 2/3 of all the state legislatures must then vote in favor ratify. Lengthy process, takes years.

      Tough nut to crack.

      Sarah more than proved herself as Governor of Alaska.

      Actually, she started proving her worth a Mayor of Wasilla, that’s where she first fought corruption. But it was at her very powerful job as Chairman of the AOGCC, the agency that regulates oil, natural gas, and coal in Alaska, where she earned her chops.

      She took on big oil and won. And when Sarah discovered massive corruption among her own employees, all of them high ranking members of the Alaska Republican Party, she took action.

      These crooks were all members of Governor Murkowski’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” and thus protected. This deal was easily as corrupt as Barack Obama’s Chicago.

      When Murkowski wouldn’t let her clean house, she “quit”, and then spent the next year taking the entire Republican party down, including the sitting Governor!

      Resignations were tendered, fines were paid, and in some cases, people are still sitting in prison.

      Upon becoming Governor herself, she actually made good on every single campaign promise, every single one.

      What she did the the corrupt Republicans in Alaska was a dress rehearsal for what she is going to Obama, his corrupt thugs, as well as those in the GOP who have been enabling them.

      In fact, she is in the process of doing it now.

      This gal’s the real deal son, not like “Smoke and Mirrors” Obama.

      Given the chance, Sarah Palin will get America back on track.

        Free??? Better look.

      • Ty Morgan

        I enjoyed your article and totally agree with you. But I do have a question for you, not being a contitutional scholar I don’t understand why a state could not opt out off the health care bill if they want to. I don’t understand how if it’s not an amendment that state sovernty would not supercede the fed. Like driving laws, murder, or hunting laws, states set their own laws and punishment.

        If you see this and have an answer I would appreciate it if you would email it to me and not just post it because then I will forsure get to read it, sometimes I can’t find my way back to a web page.

  11. merci

    Obama was a total waste of time. He did not offer new solutions to reform healthcare. Rather acted like the worst teacher you could possibly imagine. Obama is a liability to America. Thank you Sarah for your courage. Please continue to fight for America.

  12. Bill Kennedy

    Many times during the last election I asked myself, “Why am I the only person that can see through this man?” I am delighted that there are people in this country like Sarah Palin that not only can see throught him as well, but are in a position of responsibility and respect that can be heard above this man’s baffling bullshit. Go Sarah!

  13. Ralph Zito

    Outstanding, you are right on point as always.

  14. Christy

    All I can say is “right on Sarah” This woman would have made an awesome President/VP!!!

  15. Cecily Kareen

    Three of his initial choices for key offices were found wanting with big skeletons in their cupboards, but we didn’t mind;He described the police protecting the citizens as ‘acting stupidly’(too foul mouthed for a president), because he had interest, we took it; He went on befriending Iran and Korea,endangering our security,we watched on; and now he is organising to put all of us on very dangerous footing with this undefendable health-kill programmme,can we all rise to say NO? I believe we can!
    Obama is not a messiah for us,let us see him for what he is; a sweet talking youngman,out to undo whatever gain we have made as a nation.

  16. Patrick O'Ceallaigh

    Talk about double standards!!! Has anyone observed the town hall meetings closely? Listen! I mean closely. What I saw was individuals with authority ( the police and other authorities patroling the meetings) escorting individuals who opposed or voiced their opinions against Nobama’s health care reform and his socialist way of changing America’s democracy. Hmmm??? Must have learned that from Mayor Daily of Chicago (the other country in the state of Illinois). I am disappointed that Nobama stuck his nose into the local politics (referring to the professor’s arrest) and didn’t give the local politicians the opportunity to resolve the issue for themselves. No-o-o!!! Nobama referred to the policeman as a stupid cop and that the policeman had no business doing what he did. Mr. President, you sure showed your true colors and that sir is a mark of a racist. I served my country with honor and respect in the latter part of the Viet Nam conflict (from 1971 to 1972, the Christmas raids of North Viet Nam and Linebacker ll. Not once did I make a difference between soldiers who came from different ethnic backgrounds and cultures. Not once did I make a difference between ranking members of the arm service members. Not once did I make a difference between genders in the arm forces. Why did you say what you said? Why are you masking behind the underdog of society? Are you better than Wilson ( who is probably correct about you lying to some of the members of the House and Senate)? Who is in control? I see the same thing happening all over in this day of age, just like it was in the 60′s. Corruption and lies, the Chicago style. Is your socialistic ways going to arrest me or others who oppose your way of life? Its happening in other countries and yet we as a Nation point the finger at other countries, saying that isn’t right. It seems to me that your agenda and mannerisms is doing the same thing ( the Patriot Act). I upset with the double standards and double talk you have demonstrated in your public speeches. Your actions speak louder than words.

  17. Pat f

    Although I agree with that Palin is a fine spokesperson for America, I don’t think the people should just sit back and let one person do all the talking, it is time for the people to rise up off the backsides and defend this country and what it stands for. We the people have sat back for too long and let Gov. do everything for us without our voices being heard. Remember for the people by the people. Stand up people write letters send emails raise your voice anyway you can, this is our country not one persons or one group of politicians.

  18. Richard Mills

    OUTSTANDING!

    Right on point! And TO the point, I might add. Unlike the POTUS stump speech…I mean address to Congress.

    Oddly enough, what has drawn the most press coverage was not his speech, but the two words someone else uttered. However that makes sense. Nothing ELSE was said of any SUBSTANCE!

    You keep at it Sarah. Daily, more and more of the indoctrinated are seeing the light thanks to you.

    God Bless You, and stay safe.

  19. Bill Peters

    I’m so sick of this guy we call a President who is trying to run the country into the ground based on tired old communist/radical theories and some of the goons he sides with in Chicago. We need someone as President who actually works for America and for the People, not the other way around.

    Obama is such a lair, and it comes out more and more in every word he speaks. He is not for America, he is for Obama and for feeding money (the excess stimulus money) right into these illegal czars pockets. I’m sick of this czar business; we do not live in Russia, we live in America and we cannot do things like this.

    We must honor the Constitution, otherwise America goes down the tubes and we can all move back into caves with Osama, like they idealize. Hey, that way of living is green and all those green jobs where you turn in your refrigerator, washing machine and other modern goodies to save the planet is great stuff.

    He is not for jobs for example. He has not used ten cents to create jobs, except to create the illusion he is creating jobs. He is not for small business, the ones who actually do create jobs, somewhere around 90% of them in America. However, none of this stimulus money goes to the business people who need it. Oh gee, I know, he has to take care of those thugs he idealizes in Chicago first, that he has so brilliantly called czars.

    He is not for America period, not even during his perfect speech on health care, ha ha!!! What a dope, for this is one guy who tries to act like a President, but comes across as like one of Chicago’s thugs who only cares about himself and his tragic agenda or plans to ruin America and the best health care system we already have. What’s wrong with trying to fix those problems first before tackling a new and bigger problem? He really doesn’t have a clue how to fix health care, he just turns to his radical advisers to build an unworkable plan; oh I’m so sorry czars. It just makes me want to puke.

    We just have to keep the government out of running something big, we already know it will end in disaster. They can’t run Medicare or Medicaid or even the cash for clunkers deal, so how can they do what is best or right for the American people. Oh I’m mad as hell about all of this stuff, you can bet on it and furthermore so is everyone else I know.

  20. anthony monteleone

    Its about time we have someone (Sarah) who will fight for the people, not someone who will tell you everything you want to hear and then do the opposite. We do not need the goverment telling everyone what to do and then shoving it down out throat. I for one do not want goverment healthcare and would like all illegial aliens should be deported.

    We need what Prime Minister Kevin Rudd of Australia said,

    Quote:
    ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

    We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the Language!’

    It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

    This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE..’

    ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

    Maybe if we circulate this , American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

  21. Darrell Bush

    Sarah is Great!

  22. Keep the pressure on Sarah, people are starting to wake up to the mistake they made by putting this man in office.

  23. Go Sarah!!! She says what I have been thinking, The important thing for O is the Victory and that is really all that is important. If he doesn’t get this he has failed. It doesn’t matter that there is a better way to fix the problem, and we all know that there is a problem, just that his way will give the gov so much power and that is what scares me. We have to stop him! It’s time for a phone blitz to our congress people. Get your points in order and remind all of them who they work for, and it’s not O or Nancy or Harry either…We the People are the Boss here and they have forgotten that fact. Let’s remind them.

  24. Sarah…..When the Clown Suits made remarks about you, they failed to consider how they themselves were/are looked upon by Americans. As they gather among themselves in the entertainment and media community, they are a force of Clowns, Comics and Comedians that work the perifery of the White House known as the Comedy Zone We should keep the focus on; 2010 and 2012 always and replace the head clown with a PRESIDENT!

  25. Jessie

    Sarah, you are a breath of fresh air in a stale political world. Many Washingtonians have lost touch with the American people and the values upon which this country was founded. We are headed down the road to socialism,economic ruin, and moral decay. This country must return to the fundamental principles upon which it was built. God bless you, and God bless the U.S.A.

  26. Jessie

    Sarah Palin rocks!!!

  27. VietnamVet

    When I read H.R. 3200 (the first time I fell asleep twice) the 2nd time all the way through, I made notes of all the parts that I didn’t like. Many of those are laced in Palin’s speech. While she doesn’t reference actual page numbers and lines, I believe she should do this so listeners and readers can find the actual facts in the bill for themselves.

    Congressman Wilson’s shout of “liar” was met with disdain by the world, especially House Speaker Pelosi whose glare and pursed lips looked more like sucking an egg. Nevertheless, Wilson was right as rain because insurance for illegals is addressed on page 170, lines 1-3 of the first submission of the House Bill that I read several weeks ago. It is also mentioned on page 50, Section 152. Instead of the media rushing to explain WHAT Wilson said, they rush to indict him for saying it. Rude? You bet it was rude and inappropriate but to critics, the focus is away from WHY he said it as if there is absolutely no truth to it. Shame on the media for its misguided focus! And where was the media’s rush to spank the hecklers when Bush addressed Congress on Feb. 2, 2005?

    The various Bill versions are always changing so that’s why the page numbers should be referenced by Palin and others. It adds validity to their argument against H.R. 3200.

    Palin is to be applauded for her calling the President out on this issue. I had hoped, like Palin, that Obama would have said “H.R. 3200 is DOA in the Oval Office; therefore, let’s start over with fresh ideas that will benefit all of America” but he did not and now we’re faced with the same legislation that all the town hall meetings can never undo.

    Stay with it Sarah! You’ve got my endorsement.

    For all those who are opposed to H.R. 3200, I hope each will call his/her Congressperson and tell him/her “if you vote for this Bill, I will vote against you in the next election.”

    blah blah blah blah blah, same ole story, im sick and tired of every body saying the same thing and not doing a thing about it, if we are going to take sides and put a line down the middle of america then so be it. i don’t think anybody obama/palin are really worried about me and if i can make my house payment. the only people i count on is my family and friends, obama/palin/bush/clinton have never did one damm thing for me i have pd taxes since i was 15yrs (25yrs). and i cant go to a dr because i don’t have health ins. and why would i pay 240month with a 2500 deductible, what is the use, seems fair doesn’t it, i guess one of the things i have to be thankful for is that me and my children dont get sick that often, GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GIVE US THE ABILITY TO STAND BY OUR FAITH

  29. Andrea

    His speech was riddled with oxymorons and lies. “Government-run not-for-profit”–when has the government ever been not-for-profit? I, myself, found that the outcry over coverage for illegal aliens was (although in bad taste at the moment) very eye-opening. It made me realize that if one individual there was brave enough to make that statement, that obviously that part of the plan was still there. In my opinion, one way to control exorbitant healthcare costs is simple: close the borders so illegals cannot come over and continue to have babies to unwed, unemployed mothers. That would take care of the “indigent care” write-offs that our hospitals are having to make. The influx of new Medicaid recipients would decrease. The amount of WIC and food stamps being issued would decrease. Wow…that alone would save millions per year. Don’t get me wrong, I do feel sorry for the situations they are living in in other countries, but hey….we don’t get a “Welcome to…..” package upon our arrival to their countries! Why must we continue this? And why, oh why…WHY do we as Americans keep allowing these idiots to be in control?!?!?!?! Obama is nothing more than a sulking coward who is afraid to do what is right, and is too brainwashed to think for himself. He relies too heavily on the thoughts and words of those who only want to harm.

  30. David W.

    When i became a soldier in 1968,(volunteer), i raised my hand and took an oath that gave me the right, and privilege to fight and, if necessary, die, to halt communist aggression. I still feel i have the same rights and privilege to this day, whether on foreign or domestic land.
    If communism wishes to rear its ugly head on my soil, myself and many, many more like me will stand ready to fulfill that oath yet today. There is never an expiration date on being a patriot of such a blessed land as ours. Some people need to think on these things very carefully. Remember the adage ‘ if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything’? Never has it sounded more true than now.

  31. Larry E

    I had the good fortune to be a delegate to the American Legion Boy’s State when I graduated from high school many years ago, and learned first hand the workings of our government and the power of our Constitution! I must admit I have not been as involved as I should have been due to the corruption of politics, but that is changing as of now!

    This government is totally out of hand, and that includes the Executive and Legislative branch! This President of the United States is a smooth talking figurehead without any substance! He will tell people what they think they want to hear, and his rhetoric is pathetic and sickening.

    His sidekick who heads up the House of Representatives is no better. She is a self serving, arrogant narciscist just like the Mr. Obama. These are facts! Just watch them and you will see it! Add to this the legions of other corrupt politicians in both chambers, and I’m talking both sides of the aisle, and it makes for a sorry state of affairs. We the people are going to pay dearly if we do not stand up.

    I took the oath to protect my country and constitution when I enlisted in the military (Vietnam), and I will continue to do so until I have taken my last breath. This is a time for courage, and a time to take a “stand” for all freedom loving Americans.

    I ask you the same question our pastor asked last week; Are you a ‘Conformist’ or a ‘Transformist’? A conformist just goes along with the crowd, the transformist stands up starts making changes. Which are you?

    This quote is still worth remembering in today’s world.

    “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives”.
    “James Madison”

  32. Cliff Britt

    I love you Sarah. Need I say more?

  33. kim

    Way to see it Sarah. I don’t want to come off as a bad person for saying this, but why are we just sitting here spewing what this guy and gov are doing, We should be now using the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Bill of Rights! The 9th and 10th Amendments Trumps ALL extra-consitutional Federal power!This is OUR country, we have the power to take it back. We need to get on our state reps, get the 1/3 and we can take back what is ours, people, states are the ones that are suppose to be handling ALL our halthcare, laws and so on. If WE THE PEOPLE STAND UP, we can STOP the New World Order with the use of the 9th and 10th Amendments….WE CAN’T LET BILDERBERG WIN!

  34. Joseph K

    Nice to see others realize we really have a one party system with two factions.

    It is a Count Chocula / Frankenberry system where they always win no matter which faction wins.

    To take your government back citizens vote out all incumbents in all elections for several years. This will break and fragment the machine and make govt as HONEST as possible until the new alliences can form.

  35. albert

    Empty barrels make the most noise. The barrel that both sides seem to be rolling in this debate are so flawed that it is not funny. Rather than coming together after discussion they seem to be pulling further appart . Looks like the American Health care system with all the high costs that bankrupt sick people will remain as it is beacuse neither side listens to the other.

  36. Craig

    Thank you for this wonderful, informative, and right-on article. My day can go on without acquiring a headache from reading bogus, left-wing articles written by self-claimed political blogs like Huffingtonpost. I certainly don’t read them because I agree with them (I’m a Conservative Republican), but more so to see if I could at least gather 1 piece of information that would allow me to understand where they (liberals) are coming from… but, they never have any valid, logical, nor practical points to support their arguments… always speculative, misinformed, hypocritical, impractical, and illogical opinions (never facts). It’s gotten to the point these days where they (liberals) are quick, by any means necessary, to say anything and do anything just to “win” the “argument”. Regardless of the destruction their folly may cause, the eventual result is a moot point for them, so long as they can say they “won the argument”… no worries about it going bad, because as usual, they resort to blaming Republicans for their own mess ( one needs to look no further than the banking collapse, a result due to the irresponsibility of the Clinton Administration, that caused our current recession, not Bush Admin spending over 8 years that liberals like to lead everyone on to believe ).

    Palin’s definitely got my vote for President.

  37. Jan

    Keep up the good work, Sarah. We want to hear more from you. Jan

  38. Thank you Governor Palin for your continued concern for our country. Although the text speaks volumes, nothing compares to the non-verbal comunication/anger that flaired in the eyes and face of President Obama during the brief outburst. It can not be taken back. It was seen by huge numbers fo people. It was very revealing. No surprise that the media didn’t print it. I think the outburst was wrong, but the response was telling.

  39. I find that politics makes for bad government, though it seems that one cannot get one without the other. However, institutions are always a mirror image of the publics they serve. As someone else has said, people deserve the government they get. Ultimately, it is the American people who have let things get this low. Perhaps Governor Palin can lead them back to where they need to be.

  40. james

    I think she gave a excellent answer to the Presidents speech.
    We need to keep the pressure on the members of Congress, so they know what we the majority of Americans want..If we are going to amend the Constitution, however changing the way the House and Senate get paid. Why not let the State that elected and sent them to congress pay their salary and let them have State benefits.
    They could come home and appear before the State Legislature and justify a raise.

    Works for me!

  41. joyce

    i didnt vote for him and tried to tell everyone i knew not to either but they didnt listen told them i didnt trust him and i stilll dont. well now the people will find out the big mistake they made electing him president

  42. James H

    Larry E. said it better than I can. It is of utmost importance that we elect a republician majority in the house in the upcoming midterm elections.

  43. M in Kingsville

    Larry E.- you are right on the mark- Barry and Nancy are both narcissists. Having known enough narcissists in my life, they cannot think of anything except improving their image. There were several times in the election process when comments were made and he immediately felt obligated to respond as if the comment was about him personally. There is a good article at:

    faithfreedom.org/obama.html

    discussing the making of a Fuhrer and BHO”s self absorbtion. His arrogant glance at the crowd captured in many photos reminds me of Benito Mussolini in a number of photos:

    psywarrior.com/mussolini2.jpg

    He has one concern- getting his way and moving his personal agenda forward. It does not matter who is in the way and at what cost- much less undoing 200+ years of American freedom, culture, institutions, and way of life.

    He is a paradox- he is the savior of America and the second coming to many- feeding his enormous ego off of the adulation of the masses and the ministry of propaganda (mainstream media) – yet at the same time willing to bow to a Saudi king and sit idly in an audience while Daniel Ortega charges America with terrorist aggression.

  44. PJ

    Thank you Sarah Palin…we as AMERICANS also need to hold our individual representatives feet to the fire. And we as AMERICANS cannot lose hope…that’s what Obama wants us to do! He thinks his little speech the other night shut us up…and he was wrong! I’m not a Republican or Democrat…I’m an AMERICAN first and I will continue to educate my friends and family whether they want to listen to it or not. If you too will hold fast and not lose faith…it will happen! Some of the darkness has already been seen the light…there are more and we AMERICANS know it! Don’t lose faith…keep pushing forward…don’t back down! This is our COUNTRY not some facist communist…he wasn’t even raised here and he really doesn’t know that we AMERICANS don’t back down! Well. let’s how him…OPEN YOUR MOUTHS and DON’T STOP!!! I believe in us and you…

  45. Kathie Wilson

    This Palin hit the nail on the head. I, too, have never ever seen or heard a president as we have today. I am truly scared for the future of our country and our children. I just don’t understand why some other people can’t see it. Perhaps, they just don’t want to. I believe this man has been groomed and place in a position for others to take over our country. I don’t trust him nor the words that come out of this mouth. It’s a very, very scary time for us. He is moving way too fast with having way too much inexperience in government and leadership. I’m all for giving a person a chance but he is doing so much harm to our country. Please, please, please do NOT vote this man another term.

  46. james travassos

    when i was a boy my father said to me, “everytime a law is passed, someone, somewhere loses a right”! i immediatly understood what he said, and meant. i was ten years old.

    hr 3200 violates the constitution in six different areas. that is from a constitutional lawyer, not me.

    i am a registered, moderate republican from massachusetts, never voted for a democrat in statewide or national elections, and have never found any reason to do otherwise.

    sarah palin says what she does, and does what she says. i don’t agree with her on everything, but i agree with her on most things. SHE IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!.

    please sarah, do our country a big favor, RUN FOR PRESIDENT, YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU. WE, THE PEOPLE NEED YOU TO STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR RIGHTS.

  47. Tink

    Wow I couldn’t have said it any better! I love you Sarah! Thank you soooooo much for telling it like it is!

  48. Frank R

    There is an old saying ” birds of a feather flock together”.

    Obama said it when he took office ” we won you didnt move get out of the way and let us do what we were elected to do”, paraphrasing.

    There was a Russia dictator who said ” we will defeat u from within, as he pounded his shoe,”

    That time has come in Americca, we are being destroyed by the very men elected wake up blind followers.

    WAKE UP AMERICAN!!!

    I think one of the main reasons Obooboo got into office is because of his skin color! His people believed that “he’s one of us, therefore he would not lie to us”. So they followed blindly along, and are now realizing that he is not “one of us”. He is simply for whatever is good for him! He cares only for the fact that he’s not shoving it back in our faces-”See, I got in anyway, even through you didn’t want me here. Now I’m gonna screw you-just cuz I can!!” And now he’s shoving this health care reform in our faces-”The plan wil not add to our deficit. The middle class will realize greater security not higher taxes.” He’ll accomplish this miracle by cutting wastefull spending? Yeah, and if you believe that, I’ve got oceanfront property for sale-it’s in Arizona-you can see the sea from the front porch. Just like we can see this health care reform plan ever happening sometime soon. I remember seeing a young man at Obooboo’s victory party in Grant Park. He bragged on camera about calling in sick to work, so he could attend the party. He was sure he would be fired, but wasn’t worried (not because he was on crack,LOL) but because Obooboo had promised that he would produce more jobs-Mr. President is gona find e a new job. So, young man, did you get that wonderful new job? No, you say? Didn’t think so!!

  52. Ed Zaccardelli

    Obama is on OJT with the Presidency, he knows nothing about that office, he is learning as he goes along and losing the America’s heart.,
    He claims to follow Abe Lincoln who freed the slaves, he is a Muslim and a racist who wants to change America, because in his mind we as the white majority are ignorant as his appointees has said. He full of lies and deciet!
    He and his band of criminals from Illinois have attacked Sarah Palin like a pack of wild pigs wearing lipstick.
    The Public should have seen this coming, and voted him out real fast. But the liberal media focused on attacks on Sarah and most followed it.
    I saw Sarah Palin a big winner at that time and a threat to the Democarts so they resort to evil to win.
    It would be a very diffierent picture in America if McCain and Palin had won the Presidency. The dislike the Dems had on Bush reflicted their decision,
    It was Clinton who caused 911 for ignoring the warnings
    and the Demons blamed Bush who did not cause 911.
    Remember! the last two years of the Bush presidency the Liberals were in charge of Congress and that is why we are in trouble today. Fannie May and Freddy Mack was criminalized by thlem.

  54. Sarah Palin you are the angel that just flew down to save America. Thank you.

    I am confused. Could someone explain to me how we will become a socialist government under Obama. And I don’t want to hear any name calling because that’s not going to do any good. He hasn’t been in the office a year yet and some people act like we turned into China or Cuba. Some of you claim to be conservative republicans- correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t you guys supposed to be Christians cause you’re not acting like it. To tell you the truth no matter who’s in office none of our problems will be solved. Let’s meditate on that for awhile.

    STAY BLESSED.

    • Gary P

      It’s easy Anthony. Obama is a communist, period.

      His mother and father were practicing communists, as were his mother’s parents.

      Obama was mentored from age 10 until he went off to college by radical communist Frank Marshall Davis. Davis was actually kicked out of the NAACP because he kept trying to turn the group into a communist organization.

      If you read Obama’s own books he talks about how he actively sought out the Marxists, the communists on campus. His favorite teachers were the communists, according to Obama’s own words.

      Obama’s good friend, murdering domestic terrorist William Ayers founded the Weather Underground, a Marxist organization. You ask Ayers today and he’ll tell you he’s a communist.

      Weather Underground co-founder Jeff Jones, a convicted felon, is part of the Apollo Alliance, a Marxist organization, that actually wrote much of Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus package.

      Disgraced “green jobs czar” Van Jones, a self avowed communist is also part of the Apollo Alliance.

      Obama was born and raised a communist. His only real job, if you can call it that, was when he trained the thugs-for-hire at ACORN, a criminal organization.

      Obama taught the rent-a-thugs the finer arts of anti-American communist Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” a book on “community organizing” that Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer (the devil)

      Is that enough for you?

      Wise up, before it’s too late!

    • james travassos

      the news media did a terrible job of reporting to the american people, who, and what obama was, and is.

      a corrupt news media portraid obama as the ” hope, and change ” candidate, but didn’t tell us what the hope, and change would be.

      socialism, and communisim is what the change is. take over of major corporations, banks, insurance companies. funding for radical, socialist organizations. the taking of personal property, and giving it to others. destruction of the constitution, and a major increase in the size, and power of the federal government.

      radical, progressive, liberal, communistic, socialistic, government! change that only the wacko left wing fringe believe in!

    anthony monteleone: KRudd didnt say that
