Palin is a Plague on the Country


Webster’s Dictionary needs to add one illustration to the next edition. Next to the word “liar” they should have this picture:

Palin lies about everything. She lies about hunting. She lies about speaking fees. She lies on national television.  Steve Schmidt confirmed that she lies, even about Todd’s membership in the Alaskan Independent Party. She even lies about things that may not be in the best interest of Alaskans, but in her interest politically.

She lied about the findings in the Trooper Gate matter, saying :

“I’m very, very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing, any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that.”

–Sarah Palin, , October 11, 2008.

The Branchflower report concluded that Palin “knowingly permitted a situation to continue where impermissible pressure was placed on several subordinates in order to advance a personal agenda, to wit: to get Trooper Michael Wooten fired.” It adds that she and her husband Todd attempted “to get Trooper Wooten fired for personal family related reasons.” Subordinates were placed in the situation where they had to choose whether to “please a superior or run the risk of facing that superior’s displeasure,” a clear conflict of interest.

She distinguished herself by receiving the award for telling the “biggest lie of the year” for 2009 for fabricating the existence of “death panels.”

In spite of the many outrageous lies Palin has told, she has exceeded even my expectations. Sarah Palin, speaking of the killing of Osama bin Laden, thanked George Bush for “having made the right calls to set up this victory.”

At a time when the entire country is celebrating the death of the world’s most wanted terrorist, and for the first time in several years, the country is united in celebration of American’s accomplishment, Palin is unable to simply say “thank you “ to our President. Rush Limbaugh said “thank you” to our Commander in Chief, Barack Obama.  Glenn Beck said that Obama…”did create the condition to allow Osama bin Laden to be killed, and he deserves respect for that and our thanks.”

If Palin had simply been unable to thank President Obama, we wouldn’t have been surprised. However to credit George Bush for setting up this victory is offensive. It is unforgivable. Remember George Bush’s statements about bin Laden:

“The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.”

– G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

“I want justice…There’s an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, ‘Wanted: Dead or Alive,'”

– G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI

“…Secondly, he is not escaping us. This is a guy, who, three months ago, was in control of a county [sic]. Now he’s maybe in control of a cave. He’s on the run. Listen, a while ago I said to the American people, our objective is more than bin Laden. But one of the things for certain is we’re going to get him running and keep him running, and bring him to justice. And that’s what’s happening. He’s on the run, if he’s running at all. So we don’t know whether he’s in cave with the door shut, or a cave with the door open — we just don’t know….”

– Bush, in remarks in a Press Availablity with the Press Travel Pool,

The Prairie Chapel Ranch, Crawford TX, 12/28/01, as reported on

official White House site

“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”

– G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

“I am truly not that concerned about him.”

– G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden’s whereabouts,

3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

George Bush is the President who took us to war in Iraq by justifying it as an effort to find WMDs. When WMDs were not found, Bush explained that:

“The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on September 11, 2001, and still goes on.”

On October 29, 2003, George Bush declared “Mission Accomplished” in Iraq.

Seven years later we are still involved in Iraq. Consider the “cost” of that war:

Soldiers killed 4,444

Soldiers Seriously Wounded 32,051

U.S. SPENDING IN IRAQ-$900 Billion dollars

Lost & Unaccounted for in Iraq – $9 billion of US taxpayers’ money and $549.7 milion in spare parts shipped in 2004 to US contractors. Also, per ABC News, 190,000 guns, including 110,000 AK-47 rifles.

Missing – $1 billion in tractor trailers, tank recovery vehicles, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and other equipment and services provided to the Iraqi security forces. (Per CBS News on Dec 6, 2007.)

Mismanaged & Wasted in Iraq – $10 billion, per Feb 2007 Congressional hearings

Halliburton Overcharges Classified by the Pentagon as Unreasonable and Unsupported – $1.4 billion

Amount paid to KBR, a former Halliburton division, to supply U.S. military in Iraq with food, fuel, housing and other items – $20 billion

Cost of deploying one U.S. soldier for one year in Iraq – $390,000 (Congressional Research Service)

TROOPS IN IRAQ

Troops in Iraq – Total 47,000 U.S. troops. All other nations have withdrawn their troops.

For Sarah Palin to give credit to George Bush for the mission directed by Barack Obama that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden is outrageous! She should never be forgiven by even her most ardent supporters for this lie. She is a plague on this country.

  1. I guess the “mission accomplished” sign Bush used wasn’t enough for $arah then, it only took seven years and a few billion dollars for her to acknowledge it. Too bad it wasn’t true then, like it is now.
    Trouble is, Bush didn’t accomplish it.

    Knew she wouldn’t credit President Obama. Palin doesn’t have that much class.

    She’s crafting herself as the right-wing poison pill. Whether that poison works for the right or the left is up to $arah.

    Personally, I don’t think she has the brains to know better.

  3. “She is a plague on this country.”

    That sums it all up very neatly. She is one of THE WORST plagues this country and politics have ever seen.

    The president has demonstrated that in spite of all the “attack machine” attempts to smear, and paint him as incompetent and weak, he has pushed on and moved forward. I am thankful for his brains, wit, polish, dignity, graciousness, determination and strength.

    SP has none of those qualities. Instead, Palin is a pouting, petulant, prevaricating, propagandizing piece of poppycock.

    Looking forward to the day when we no longer hear about her or see her–a nationwide bash or party would be in order, as that would definitely be something to celebrate!

    but she will be forgiven..actually no forgiving to be done in their little palinsupporting minds. The media will still print her disrespectful assenine remarks. These are folks you cannot penetrate. Not because they are so palinbelieveres..they are soooo prejudice and will not rest till the black man leaves. Bush needs to come out and stop these narrow minded morons and remind them that he was the one singular president who ruined this country on all fronts in a short period of 8 years! THIS IS WHY THEY KEEP SAYING OBAMA IS THE WORST PRESIDENT..he is not of course. BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE YOU FORGET HOW BUSH REALLY REALLY RUINED THIS COUNTRY IRAQ AFGHANASTAN..EVERYTHING..AND HE GETS 100 MILLION dollars for RUINING AMERICA! Obama’s mature thinking and listening to the real experts (unlike bush who listened to no one but HIS INSTINCTS!SHT!) got a major terrorist killed. Not with big bad cowboy talk. No..with real thought out plans. People hate him even more now becuase remember..black leaders are not supposed to be smarter than white leaders. THIS IS WHY WE CANNOT GIVE HIM THE CREDIT DUE HIM. THE RIGHT WING SHOULD BE INCREDIBLY INCREDIBLY ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES…such little men and women on that side.

In print it sounded like he was thanking the president but I guess he was saying it sarcastically and meant it more like the president was getting all the credit for nothing. You know how it is, if you are a republican president you get ALL the accolades. If you represent the democrats then you didn’t have a damn thing to do with it.

      1. Malia, I have said it before and say it again. This quitter will run. She can’t help herself. She thinks she is the lone ranger who is going to save this country. We all should remember how a mother puts her family’s dysfunction on display for the world to see and thinks that is going to help her get to the white house. She isn’t a normal woman. I mean for her to say spending quantity time is better than quality time with her kids tells you something about how these kids have grown up. Nothing this woman does surprises us. We think she wouldn’t go there but then she does and she doesn’t care. You know one thing I have observed about her and many republicans and that is they ENVY the president because he is smart, calm, and a good family man. Those qualities Palin nor Trump have and wish they could have.

      Which is why she deserves none.

      Being a veteran, her words mean nothing. Never will. Until she decides to put on a uniform, and put “don’t retreat, reload!” to the test, it’s only BS coming out of her mouth, nothing more.

      And that’s all the respect she deserves.

  9. Malia, Thank you for bringing some facts to the table. Iraq is an outrage and the military industrial complex continues to soak the American taxpayer. But, the most hideous aspect of the war is the toll on the citizens of Iraq. It is shameful we Americans haven’t apologized for the chaos we are causing. Iraq is a very complex nation and Bush simply had no clue or cared to learn about the Iraqi people. He and his buddies only saw $$$$ and oil.

  10. Malia, I so agree with everything you have said here. I am a new reader to this blog and like very much that you bring the truth out about Palin. I saw right through her from day one and am so glad the truth is coming out about her. I do want to gently disagree on one thing. The terrible Rush Limbaugh did not mean what he said about President Obama. He was sarcastically berating him and demeaning him. The link is here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/02/limbaugh-thank-god-obama-bin-laden_n_856425.html.(See Update) He is an evil, vile man who, along with Palin cannot even have one iota of respect for President Obama. He and Palin bring much shame to this country.

  12. LOL Here we go again Sarah Palin Can’t Name Most Influential Journalist:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/03/sarah-palin-cant-name-mos_n_856968.html

    But while most of the attendees had no problem coming up with answers (Eliot Spitzer said Brian Williams, as did Andrea Mitchell, while SNL’s Bill Hader went for The New Yorker’s David Grann), Palin fumbled when asked.

    “Oh my goodness, that’s a great question,” she said, before turning to her husband Todd and asking for his input.

    When Todd also balked, Palin came back and said, “Um, gosh, that’s a great question, I have to think about it, OK? Because there are many.”

    As Palin walked away from the camera, she ran into her Fox News pal Greta Van Susteren, and then turned back to the NBC cameras to shout, “Greta Van Susteren is the most influential journalist!”

    Problematic is the racism that is out there. Shocking though it is to think we are still mired down, she fattens on the racism against Obama money wise. Her following loves her disses to him. It isn’t merely her resentment that he won, it gives her clout with the racists to diss him every way she can verbally. They love it.

  21. Sarah Palin’s character is accurately summed up as follows:

    (I)gnorant
    (D)emented
    (I)ncendiary
    (O)bsessed with power
    (T)edious

    Ever since 2008, she has confirmed America’s low opinion of her with her hateful, ill-informed statements on just about about every subject she comments on. In addition, her pointlessly oppositional and seditious comments about our president only cement her unfitness to hold any political office ever again, least of all the presidency. On Immoral Minority, the author of that blog has cited a poll in which the Republican respondents voted her as more trustworthy on national security than 2 others (Huckabee and Romney). With her legendary stupidity, her ignorance and disregard of the complexity of international affairs, and her shoot-from-the-hip mentality, anyone who thinks she belongs in a seat of power is not playing with a full deck. She is divisive and only cares about herself, as opposed to the negative effect she has had on political discourse.
