"I believe in this movement ... America is ready for another revolution," said Palin (via UK Telegraph)Funny how all these people were totally gung-ho over GW Bush's toxic and wasteful policies, but when a Democrat sits in the Oval Office, they can't wait to overthrow the government! Don't they realize that when they criticize the President they're emboldening our nation's enemies? At least, that's what Sen. Lieberman thought in regard to Bush.
Palin, who was well-compensated for her speech (something along the lines of $100,000 has been reported) also gave these "Tea Party Terrorists" what they wanted (because, if you want to overthrow our nation's government, by definition you're a "terrorist") with her silly folksy rhetoric:
"How's that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?" she askedObviously, twelve months was more than enough time to work out all the problems that Bush left us, especially considering we are blessed with such an agreeable GOP caucus in the Senate which supports every single one of President Obama's policies. Right?
Let's face it: the Republicans have worked much harder to obstruct any useful initiatives than they have to actually solve any problems. They don't want our nation to realize ANY success while the Democrats are in power. Your personal suffering only encourages them to continue blocking everything they can, as they seem to think it will benefit them with the votes they covet so dearly.
Rush Limbaugh really nailed it when he said he wanted to see President Obama "fail". He inadvertently revealed the secret GOP agenda for America, and most Tea Baggers are too stupid to see it. Limbaugh WANTS our nation to suffer as much as it takes to put the GOP back in power!
“They own this now, and voters are going to hold them accountable,” Palin said in her speech.Hopefully the voters will be smart enough to see through this obvious agenda of GOP obstructionism and delay, and hold THEM accountable in the fall elections.
Meanwhile, more and more mainstream Republicans are finding Palin's rhetoric shrill and transparent. More than one has complained that Palin is simply cashing in on the desires of the Republican party by stirring up anti-administration feelings. John Feehery, who advised former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert, has some thoughts about the "Saracudda" phenomenon:
“She has attained rock star status,” he said. “That doesn’t necessarily mean she has a great voice, but she has attained celebrity. For a lot of folks she is off-key. But for her supporters, she’s the best thing since Elvis.”And let's not forget that this patriotic little lady received a not-insignificant $1.25 million advance to write her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.”
Feehery said he is skeptical Palin will run for president.
“What she is doing, frankly, I think, is trying to make some money,” he said.
Apparently, it pays quite well to be a famous loser and quitter!
Well, I didn't have to wait very long for a suitably horrific photo of Palin to make the rounds. This one is from the AP, and I'm tempted to run a caption contest on it, but I just know you sick puppies would get carried away!
