Sarah Palin: Obama



Speaking truth to power.
So your solution to all of the problems 2 years ago would have been for the government to cut spending (and jobs)??

What would have been a high enough employment rate??? 15% 20%? How many private sector jobs could have been cut due to the bailouts not occuring.

tell me what would have happened with doing nothing in your wise wise opinion. What pearls of wisdom does Sarah Palin have to Monday Morning Quarterback the financial crisis hmmmmm??????

LOL, the looney left only wish that Bush and Sarah were still in office!! It's getting tougher to keep people convinced the bad economy is Bush's fault when it's the left running the show in DC!

Besides, the woman looks like a complete jerk - Palin has been out of office for over a year, it is clear this is just another political stunt from the angry, frothing Left.

What office does Palin hold?
Nice try. You can't even answer simple questions?

Second, why do you think she is crazy? Point out from the transcript what was so crazy about the things she said? She didn't say anything that wasn't true.

I don't think the woman looked like a complete jerk. I thought she looked like someone who chose to express herself. What makes her a jerk?



Then why do we care that she unloaded on Obama? I mean if she's that unimportant than I can create a thread saying "My neighbor UNLOADS on Obama for His whining and Blame Game" If she's just a private citizen then let her do her unloading privately like everyone else.
She is a private citizen. And she can complain anyway she sees fit. You are not complaining about her in private, you are on this forum, for all to see. If she goes on tv, or radio or Facebook, so what???

Maybe you should try to read and understand before you respond...what exactly am I complaining about? I said the same thing you said. She's a private citizen. She can complain however she wants to. Let her do it. If she goes on Facebook and complains, so what?

It's not getting tough at all to understand that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It makes no difference if Obama or McCain had won the general election, we were in a deep pile of doo doo based on the decisions made in the Bush Administration. More cuts to the rich, more exporting of American jobs, more de-regulation of banks, more gravy train terms for credit companies, more control by private insurance companies, more everything for Corporate America - period. Of course, the quagmire of a war we're in was the final straw that broke the camel's back; that and the massive bail-out tells us that Americans are paying for the ultra-rich and the ultra-rich and greedy war mongers.

If you really check history you will find that LBJ started the great society and public welfare which has caused the unfunded mandate that has lasted all these years it is just now the bill is coming due and there are no funds to cover what is owed.

I wonder if the poster realizes those unfunded liabilities have morphed into tens of TRILLIONS of dollars.
