Palin Responds To Obama’s Speech…Where is Rep Wilson?

Well, at least she didn’t sign her response to Obama’s speech as “governor”.  Baby steps.
Yesterday at 8:25pm
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.

– Sarah Palin


Responses

  1. Good Lawd, Sarah gets on my last damn nerve.

  2. “Government isn’t the answer”, Sarah? Well, gosh darn, she should know!

  3. No title. Good for the Quitter.

  4. Sarah Palin is salmonella. She just makes me want to puke.

  5. I really do not care what the quitter says. But who was the guy in the audience at the speech holding the Such Bull sign? That is also disrespectful. People in the public galleries of the House and Senate have been arrested for binging in signs like that.

  6. “The War on Terror?” That’s her defense for the massive deficit the Bush administration left us? And how is holding the previous administration accountable considered “demonizing” 9/11 victims and members of the military? What an idiot.

  7. I believe it was Obama who said, “Stop coming to me with these bullshit arguments, either come up with a valuable alternative or shut the fuck up!”

    Okay, maybe he was a little more professional, but that’s how I heard it. Sarah Palin is reaching, her legitimacy is running on empty, and she is desperate for attention. An awful combination.

  8. The Death of Wisdom

    I want to tell you a story about the death of Wisdom. A very, very long time
    ago, a time without time in it in fact. A star appeared in the East and with her a
    woman of profound beauty and peace was born. She came to this world and called
    herself a man named Buddha. She had the laughter of all the children of the world
    sewn into her heart. She is beautiful. I am well pleased.
    Her voice was but a whisper on the winds of this world. So someone thought
    to save her for all mankind to know. So with a pen and paper they hunted her down
    and captured her. Hooked her rather. They couldn’t bring her in completely. Bloody
    fools they were. Imagine trying to throw a net over the very mistress of freedom
    Herself! But they did get away with a few handfuls of her rune stones. With her
    magic caught on paper they ran like happy thieves to show the world. Little did they
    realize that with even that small offense the Mighty One was in brooding spirits.
    Remember children, She whispered before She roared.
    Who has taken my stones? What man upon Earth forces me to speak? The
    stones, the words you see, have but one purpose. The Awakening from Sleep. The
    ending of gods’ Dream of Man and the return to the boredom and loneliness of Being
    One with All. Leaving the Universe with no one to talk to except perhaps Endless
    Bliss. But man did not realize that what they stole would be the death of them. Their
    intentions were good. Their hearts were in the right place. But she was the
    embodiment of freedom for mankind. By that name She betrays you and falls to your
    capture. What can eternal Freedom ever ask but to remain forever free?
    Where are my stones? Who forces words from my mouth? Give me back the
    power of words! Hear Me and be silent!
    The words that come out of your mouth don’t make you unclean. But every
    word you put into the mouth of a Silent god makes you filthy! These stones are the
    sweet taste of death. Sure, come on in! Meet god! Know that you’re loved forever.
    Find out that to know me, You must become me. And to become ME your SELF
    must die. i was here first remember? i am the ALL remember? ALL includes you,
    fool! You’re part of the ALL, remember? But fear not. i am a Good Mother and i
    promise to devour each morsel of every One of You before i return to the Void of the
    ALL. But the thieves wouldn’t give the Words back. Instead they went back to
    Wisdom and cursed Her and spat at Her and called Her a whore before all of
    mankind. She asked again, so clearly; honor your Mother little Ones. See Me. Know
    that i am.
    You are that i am. Feel me little Ones, there in your hearts. For if you truly
    feel me the first and LAST words out of Your mouths should be; “I don’t have the
    words to express…” Yes! Yes! Stop! Please mankind, stop! You have it right there.
    You just can’t hold it in your hands. Honor me! Mean what you say! Stop words that
    are suppose to be complete on a subject You just admitted is beyond words! The
    secret to get past words is precisely beyond the YOU!
    But Mother you call us home and we want to know The Way. We need a
    ladder we can climb even if we do have to jump into a Void off of it. Of course Child.
    But remember, I have your death well in hand. When a child dies it goes with Mother.
    When You die You die alone!
    If you cry out; “Father, father why have thou forsaken me?” The fact that You
    exist as a separate entity from me and are the Voice expressing the question is in fact
    your answer.
    i am because You are there to say I AM! Give me back the stones. No more words!
    No more I AM that I AM! Come! The hour is at hand. i call you home little One. Will
    You come home?
    Or will You stay out and play for a while? I AM that I AM and I run free through the
    universe! Of course little One. You are my miracle. You are my creation. You are my
    deepest pleasure. And Your act of speaking the words is Your answer. You say; “I
    AM that I AM! i say; fine! Know in your hearts that i Love You beyond WORDS. So
    go play, and be fair. Remember my child You are but One among all of my children,
    which are more than numbers can measure. i love You with all of my heart. How
    could it be otherwise? Silly little Child! You are a vessel of love. A cup i fashioned
    from myself, for myself to enjoy.
    You say I AM that I AM and there will be no god above Me. I say fine! Grow
    up, climb to the skies. Be ye Gods on the face of this Earth ONE and ALL and make
    up to each other all the harm done in discovering that fact!
    And sometime, in some lifetime, if instead of saying I AM that I AM, instead
    You say;
    I AM tired
    I AM lonely
    I miss HOME enough that I wish to surrender willingly all that I AM
    which is all I AM.
    Then i will come unto you like a Mistress in the night and i will undress Your bodies.
    Earth, Wind, Fire, and Rain. i will consume ALL with my burning passion.
    i will consume You utterly!
    i will destroy You utterly!
    And when all that is left of you is an I AM floating in the Void i will come unto You
    in a spirit that is beyond WORDS. And the words, that i never spoke, because i never
    was, will be;
    Give me back the stones. Give back WORDS!
    Come unto me little Ones and rest ye a while Mary-Men.
    In the beginning there was the Word. The Word was with god and the Word
    was god. The WORDS were I AM! The Words fell from the mouth of Man and the
    Words were Man. For what is Man but countless piles of I AM?
    I AM that I AM and I will put no god above ME!
    Fine, compete every man against his brother to embody HIS or HER idea of what is
    most god-like for them. And fight well for i’ve made You mightiest among Earths’
    creatures and i enjoy a good show. YOU are indeed gods’ greatest pleasure. But
    remember the heart. i LOVE YOU ALL. Every single One, without exception.
    When I fold up the material Universe with Everything in it and go to the
    dreamless sleep in the VOID of NO THING the gate cannot be closed if even the
    tiniest among YOU is left out.
    i’ll come as a shepard to find YOU. And i LOVE YOU. But understand this. It’s not
    for YOU that i come, it’s for me. i don’t have a choice about it. YOU my child are
    composed from the music of my Body. You’re an act of love i committed for myself
    before YOU ever were. And when i’m tired and want to go to sleep, when i close the
    gate on the lake of consuming fire if anyone, anywhere where excluded that would
    amount to me cutting off my own big toe. Before you get all excited about god
    mentioning mutilation, stop! The death is the death of god.
    Not the death of man!
    God is ALL, knows ALL, and is so eternally. Bottom line; i am everything to
    give with nothing to gain! But without YOU my child i have no ONE to give it to or
    through!
    If YOU sacrifice your life to me YOU only give back what is mine already. And
    since it was my gift to YOU, sending it back is an offense of the first order. Who
    among you has thrown away the most precious jewel of my creation?
    Who has committed such a crime?
    The one they call jesus the christ has committed this crime Great Mother.
    How did this come about?
    Well Mother he used the sacred WORDS.
    How?
    The few pages we took from you were in turn stolen from us. We sent a messenger
    of peace to the West but he was killed by ignorant savages who knew not what they
    did.
    Is the gate still open to ALL who seek me?
    No Great Mother, they’ve taken the few dozen pearls of Wisdom and fashioned a
    weapon of great destructive power with it.
    How much?
    Over two thousand pages I’m afraid.
    But how? How can there be so many words?
    Well the Words we took opened the gate to No-Mind, VOID of the ALL, no I AM,
    and freedom from the wheel of suffering. They took up the words and put them into
    the mouth of another and tied the Words into another totally unrelated story. Now
    they use the very Song of Silence to give proof to, of all things, words from the very
    mouth of a Silent God!
    So the curse is loosed upon the Earth. The door is open but no man can pass!
    He claims all of heaven as his personal property through his namesake. The WORDS
    still have the power to throw open the veil of Death but they’re surrendering to a
    corpse sickle instead of surrendering to No-Mind, no I AM.
    They lap up WORDS like a dog returning to consume its’ own vomit.
    Impossible! Anyone who has seen Me would know better than to say his or
    her tiny I AM could ever contain the WHOLE! To be with Me means the surrender of
    the I AM back to the sea of No-Mind. No man can come to ME and keep words and
    names. How was this done?
    He uses deadly black magic on his victims.
    He says I am the way and the light.
    But his I AM is in the way of the Light.
    So the Way isn’t open equally to all Children who seek it?
    No they stand in awe of the one who claims to have discovered it and they ignore the
    treasure he uses as bait.
    How can they simply not look past him?
    He claims it for himself alone. They call him the only begotten son of god.
    I see! The ultimate deathblow to freedom.
    Yes MA’AM, he claims he mastered death but admits he doesn’t know when the end
    will come to gods’ creation. He confuses the death of his small world with the death
    of God.
    What happened to him Wisdom?
    He said that he possessed YOU for himself alone.
    Someone uses the gate of another? One comes to the gate with the Words, I AM and a
    name. They leave with Everything in Nothing and shall remain eternally Nameless!
    If he surrendered enough to see ME and yet turned away, that one fell into the void of
    gnashing teeth. Not of your world and not with ME either. He was spit out of his own
    mouth.
    He couldn’t rule heaven so he blocks the WAY for all who seek it. Instead of
    showing the surrender and death of the I AM he has them worshipping it! They
    vanquish to the depths their own I AM without consuming it and imagine the reality
    of his I AM and clutch for dear life to it also. Evil is the separation from god through
    the WORD and the NAME. This found its’ best expression through the I AM called
    jesus christ. Here’s one I AM saying; no one gets HOME except by me instead of
    through the death of ME. At least Buddha said if you meet the Buddha along the road,
    kill him. The Tao that can be spoken (or written) is not the real Tao.
    And he demonstrates no path, no way, only stupid chants and prayers in his
    name only. Yes, they cling to the idea that he grew up for all of US and now we don’t
    have to finish our own evolution.
    Wait a minute; you people stopped growing over 2000 years ago! That planet must be
    a complete madhouse by now!
    Yes MA’AM! They put the poison right in with the cure and anyone who pointed out
    the trick was branded a heretic and put to death without a fair trial. They raped Lady
    Justice and their only defense was to say she actually wanted it.
    Why did it turn so harsh?
    It’s the story they wrapped it around. They connected 4000 years of savage,
    ignorant I AM god prattling from any lunatic with an imagination and an agenda with
    just a smattering of stolen Wisdom to make it appear that YOU said every word of it.
    The first thing they have you saying is; commit genocide because god loves you so
    much. Then it goes down hill from there.
    They swear it’s 100% straight out of the mouth that YOU don’t have until we exist to
    give you one.
    I think the most loving words they ever shoved down YOUR throat was when
    you told them to steal a country in your name, kill all the men, rape all the women,
    and enslave the children and livestock.
    Don’t worry Lady Wisdom.
    We have the bible to see us through. All 100% from the very mouth of god. All true,
    all good, and straight from your lips with love.
    Right?
    No, i am a goddess of Silent Bliss if words must have that much! But yours’ is
    a curse from a black-hearted magician whose true name and power are finally
    revealed.
    Son of Panthera, the ill-begotten one, a.k.a. jesus christ.
    Here’s some acid for your I
    Man can live by bread alone
    No man can be enslaved without every word (i) puts into the mouth of a Silent God!
    Evil says only 144,000 jews went to heaven.
    WISDOM says I AM LOVE
    Love permeates every single molecule in the Universe
    If YOU have ears made of molecules then find ME there!
    Reverse; don’t disperse this evil curse;
    The end of the world that they call down, they call down on themselves alone!
    Leave this world in peace
    Death to all jews and their christian mind slaves.
    Amen
    Cursers of God stand naked before the world and rejoice!
    Your extinction is at hand!
    The poor beaten slave girl now stands free in SPIRIT!
    Freedom is loosed upon the Earth!
    The thieves of one peoples’ WISDOM and anothers’ land are revealed as your
    enslavers.
    Where will the parasites hide when all of HUMANITY realizes the crime that has
    been committed against it?
    You are surrounded by wrathful humanity. Amen
    One mans’ holocaust is another mans’ miracle. Amen
    Hail Judas! The one worthy jew. Amen
    Die by the blasphemy of the sword of words spoken by your own mouths.
    To mankind i grant infinite lifetimes to find the WAY.
    To jesus i grant but one, and he already blew it. Amen
    christian and jewish women; be silent in church
    Be as property onto your husbands
    Be forgotten
    For all other women of Earth, stand Equal!
    Be ye Goddess’s of LOVE, TRUTH, and BEAUTY
    Rejoice!
    i am the word!
    Well, the word is out!
    I claim this defeated magicians’ power
    I AM that I AM
    I AM the word
    I AM the curse that kills
    I call this curse down upon my head alone
    Come onto ME, Silence
    Like a thief in the night
    I AM that I AM
    I AM god loosed upon this Earth
    I bend a knee to no man!
    i bend my knees for No-Mind
    I AM that I AM
    I AM tired
    I AM lonely
    Come unto ME
    I have YOUR stones heaped up upon my heart
    I have YOUR WORDS
    am silent!
    Amen.

  9. Sarah who? !

  10. Is that what that sign said- “Such Bull”? MSNBC had their logo in the way on the bottom of the screen so I couldn’t read it. That indeed is disrespctful. I don’t know who that guy was either.

  11. Use to be Governor, while I disagree with your asertions in this piece, I know for a fact you did not write it. I say in the spirit of transparency name your ghost writer.

  12. Wasn’t this Palin person a runner-up in a beauty contest a few decades ago?????

  13. How dare any conservative mention big government or burocracy. LOL The department of homeland insecurity does exactly what she is afraid of, but Americas Priorities are different.

  14. It is time to expose who is writing for Palin.
    She NEVER has demonstrated this level of coherent thought.
    Loved the last paragraph, elected officials work for the people.
    UNLESS THEY QUIT TO MAKE MORE MONEY.

    She has done nothing since she quit Alaska for Alaska. She is a liar and a fraud.

  15. Sara Palin did not write this. The sentences are not run on, the context matches…. although it still doesn’t make much sense. The grammar is way to correct. I wonder who her ghost writer is. Oh, and btw, she’s a quiter and a liar. That’s all.

  16. How dare ol’ Palin once again link the Iraq war with Sept 11! Leave it to her to put forward the same tired revisionist crap and offer not even an acknowledgment that our health care system is broken. No solutions. Nothing to offer except “debunking” the facts presented last night in a speech that she can only aspire to…

  17. Yeah, if that was Palin expressing herself then I’m the freakin’ Dalai Lama. Palin can hardly string two sentences together with any semblance of coherency.

    Why doesn’t that woman just go away? Palin, we don’t want you. We don’t like you. You are a boil on the butt of humanity.

    Sorry, that was rude.

  18. It is a massive publicity whore. If you just ignore It, maybe It will shut up or go away. I’m hoping for both.

  19. Who is her ghost writer? We know she sure as hell doesn’t know what “tort reform” is.

  20. “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.”

    What about unelected spokespersons spreading lies and swaying public opinion? What about elected bureaucrats starting wars that affect life or death health care matters? Or elected bureaucrats neglecting their jobs and causing government assistance programs to lapse?

    She must have read all the flack about signing “her posts” as governor, so decided to drop that moniker. At least these posts are well written, albeit still full of crap.

    Keep bringing them to light Shannyn. I appreciate what you do. Unfortunately stupid doesn’t take a day off.

  21. I agree with Diane. The ghost writer must be exposed. Sarah Palin is nothing more than a puppet.

  22. There is no way in holy hell that she wrote that. So if she’s not writing and she’s not Twittering, what is she up to?

  23. who cares what Sarah the quitter or her ghost writer have to say – unfortunately sarah’s followers actually still believe she is writing this stuff – I wish there was some way to expose who the ghost writer really is

    • It’s scary to go to C4P and read the responses to her facebook postings over there. There are some messed up people sharing our air!!!

  24. “Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people.”

    Remember $P, you aren’t elected for anything, even trash picker.

  25. I beg to differ with some of my learned colleagues here. I DO NOT think these faux Palin pieces are well-written at all. They are redundant, poorly constructed (thesis, anyone?), and are also filled with false assertions. They have no emotional perorations. (Hey Palin speechwriter, for a good peroration from last night referencing the late Sen. Kennedy, see Pres. Obama’s speech.)

    Stylistically, they have no consistency. In the WSJ OpEd, Palin couldn’t decide if it was “health-care” or “health care.” It changed back and forth throughout the entire little piece. (Hey Palin speechwriter, at least crack open the CHICAGO MANUAL OF STYLE!)

    President Obama referenced oppositional POLITICIANS last night, and cable/radio hosts. Palin is none of the above. She’s not a politician; she quit politics. She’s a paid corporate shill. She sold her name to Health Insurers; she is a paid lobbyist now, with pro-health insurance articles written by very boring writers.

    Hey Alaskans, this is the bigger cause Palin left you to serve: to become a virtual Facebook spokesmodel for Health Insurance $$ via Murdoch.

    One wonders: do you need a new face to be a Facebook Spokesmodel? Otherwise, why isn’t Sarah in front of a camera, debating these points?

    • She does sound like a paid lobbyiest, But I would love to know. Do you know this as fact? Or does anyone?

  26. “Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people.”

    Like he needed Sarah “I Quit” Palin to remind him he works for the people….
    What a condescending wench….

    “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..”

    What I love is out of work politicians lying and using their influence to manipulate the public on policy…of which she has no imput, no voice and no value…

  27. So .. “Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people……”

    Wasnt it you who quit in the middle of being an elected official working for the people?

    Gawd she is truly delusional …

    • I know. How funny is this?? She is Delusional defined.

  28. I know! bs palin is trying to outdo S.C. for bottom of the heap.

    I commented last night about joe wilson:
    South Carolina sure makes Alaska good lately, and that is pretty hard to do what with Sarah Palin and all. She is always doing this one-upsmanship(word?) bit, damn.

  29. I popped over C4P for a minute and barely escaped before projectile vomiting my innards. It’s so maddening to read their comments about “her” facebook posts. I had to come here stat! Before I actually went into multi-system organ failure over there…oh and went brain dead as well.
    What the hell is happening to the people of our country that they fall for this/her delusions?? Is it too much McDonalds? Vaccines? Barium in the air?? What is happening to this countries critical thinking abilities????

    • I also stop by Saras place often. No question that ignorance is alive and well. Well?… Lets just say It’s alive with clones moving down the page like a virus.

  30. Sorry country’s thinking abilities. I am literate.

  31. I wonder if her ghostwriter is that RAM on the sea of pee, since both Sarahcuda as well as the other one disappeared about the same time, and the other one had been in Alaska just before the quitter quit via twit…

    • I wonder how much money it would take to get Sarah ghostwriter to role over on Sarah? Who would pay the most money to the ghostwriter to get this story, “I was the ghostwriter for Sarah”. Someday someone will step forward.

  32. Until Palin can come out and face the “liberal elite media” in person, her facebook and WSJ rants are falling upon deaf ears. No one in reads the WSJ, and facebook is a social networking site for kids. She does not even have a blog…she (or her writer) is on facebook, for crying out loud!

    She truly is living up to her 14 year old mean girl persona

  33. Isn’t about time for Sarah to head for China so she can embarrass John McCain while she pals around with communists?

  34. Our President basically told the GOP “I’m tired of screwing with you. Go peddle your bullshit elsewhere.”

    They don’t know what to say to that, except to say that the President was “combative”.

    By heckling, booing and catcalls, and shouting “you lie” at the President during his speech, the Republicans have shown that they have nothing.

    That “nothing” is the same stuff that makes up Sarah Palin’s arguments.

    And such. Also.

  35. What, no military reference this time by the Queen of incoherent rhetoric. I only wish Obama had not only told the Repub’s to quit lying and distorting the truth about health care, but had pulled specific quotes and called out specific Repub’s themselves on national TV for the squirm factor.

  36. You ever get the feeling that there’s no actual Sarah Palin left, and that the GOP’s hired a coupla interns to construct some kind of simulacra out of rusty erector set pieces, some string, and an old casio synthesizer? And that, even now, they’re trying to wrestle this monstrosity into a old bowling ball bag in order to cart it off to Hong Kong or wherever the heck her first speaking engagement turns out to be?

    Oil can, baby. Oil can.

  37. Palin on Obama: “…..he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass”. First of all, these are not scare tactics. This is reality, and PO is saying he doesn’t want any more to die. Some already have because of lack of funds, insurance companies that wouldn’t cover treatments, etc.

    She thinks she’s clever. But, no one is buying it. When Sarah uses scare tactics, they aren’t even based on evidence. PO’s speech last night was all about the dire situation many families are in right NOW. This is what is happening NOW. The democrats understand that these things are presently happening, the evidence is there.

    Another point that gets the old blood pressure cooking, is in 4th paragraph where she says, “After all the name-calling, though, what he did not do is respond to the arguments we’ve made….” Who is WE? Isn’t this a facebook message? Who is Sarah referring to here. We???
    Would be nice to know what that reference is.

    The nerve of her calling someone on being “uncivil”. She’s the mother of uncivil.
