It would be a virtually impossible task to identify the single stupidest thing Sarah Palin has ever said. The list of stupid things Palin has said is long, colorful, and memorable. Highlights include:
1. Paul Revere was warning the British.
2. We should build dikes to solve the Gulf Oil spill.
3. We gotta stand with our North Korean allies.
4. She was completely vindicated,and committed no unlawful or unethical conduct, and did not abuse her power, with regard to firing of Walt Monegan in the Troopergate matter.
5. Herman Cain was “Herb Cain.”
7. That SHE was a victim of blood-libel when Gabby Giffords was shot.
Friday, March 9th, Sarah Palin gave another interview on Fox. Predictably, the focus of her interview was an attack on Barack Obama. However the amazing thing was that she explained that Barack Obama wanted to take us back to a time prior to the civil war when people were treated differently based on the color of their skin. Here is the actual interview. She said:
“…Granted Barack Obama has never been, I think, seen in the conventional, traditional way of we who would describe a man of valor, so it shouldn’t surprise us that Barack Obama would accept that dirty money and try to get reelected with it. But I think it does not bode well for our president’s character to not speak out against that dirty money. …
“People must be aware of his radical past, his radical associations. Even today, look at who he has chosen to be his czars. He has chosen the most radical of the radicals in certain areas of expertise, Sean. … He has chosen these people because what went into his thinking through those college years, through years probably before his college years and his profession as a community organizer, what went into his thinking was this philosophy of radicalism, based on the people whom he chose to be around. …
“He is bringing us back, Sean, to days — you can hearken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal.”
The Obama campaign responded to this interview with this commercial with actual segments from Palin’s interview.
Now Palin, in her latest Facebook post attacks the President . She says that the President is afraid to discuss the economy and that the President needs to be vetted This rises to the level of being one of the stupidest things she has ever said. When a President serves for three and one-half years in office, and runs for re-election, there is no need for “vetting.” He runs on his record, not things that occurred before he became the President. In this case it is particularly telling that the movie Game Change made its movie debut the next day, and the single most important point of that movie was that the McCain campaign failed to properly vet Sarah Palin.
To say that the President is afraid to discuss the economy was equally foolish. The economy is improving. Ten signs of improvement are:
1: Economists Say It’s Improving
2: The Weak Dollar ( one of the beneficial things about a weak dollar is that it helps American manufacturers. When their products become less expensive for the rest of the world, they can export more goods, boosting sales and their overall bottom line. The influx of foreign money can help fuel economic recovery.)
3: Jobs are Gaining …Slowly
4: Unemployment May Be Declining
5: The Recovery of Retail Sales
6: Record Corporate Profits
7: Factory Production is Increasing
8: Advertising Sales Are Growing
9: Housing Prices No Longer in Freefall
10: Rise in Expensive Equipment Sales
However the most amazingly stupid thing she said was that the first Black President of the United States was hoping for a return to pre-civil war times when people didn’t understand that all people should be treated equally. Sarah Palin suggested that President Obama was an advocate for a return to a time when, people like him, were beaten, whipped,killed, and hung.
I guess Sarah Palin was worrying about the speech she wanted to give on November 4, 2008, instead of noticing that something historic had happened that day.
We won’t forget what happened on Nov. 4, 2008, and just how close we came to a national disaster.
