Democrats are ultimately responsible for solving the problem of the gridlock. But Democrats can't force Republicans to work together to solve the country's problems, and frankly, this meme only reinforces the illogical idea the Democrats have power over Republicans. Blaming Democrat for GOP obstructionism is ridiculous. That's like blaming a domestic violence victim for the abuser's behavior. Democrats have control over their own behavior, and their only choice right now is to overcome the GOP obstructionism using any legal means necessary.
Sarah Palin reads answers off of her hand while being interviewed after giving a speech to the Tea Party after mocking Obama for using a teleprompter.
In an interview on Fox News, noted scholar and college dropout, Rush Limbaugh claimed that President Obama did not do his own work in law school, while hinting at race, "I think this is the first time in his life that there's not a professor around to turn his C into an A or to write the law review article for him he can't write."
While Palin has refused to allow any media to ask her questions on her "book" tour, and now she's laid down the new law and is not even allowing her fellow Alaskans inside the venue where she held her last book signing in Alaska. She had the local bloggers/media identified by pictures, and on a "Banned" list, enforced by local police.
On FNC's America's Newsroom today, reporter Greg Palkot was delivering a report on how the recent winter weather in Europe is causing travel problems, when he added, "A pre winter storm like Europe hasn't seen in years, forget about all that global warming talk." According to Fox, snow in winter is now evidence against global warming.
Former DNC chairman Howard Dean was on NBC's Meet The Press today talking about the compromise healthcare bill. Dean finally answered the Republicans who have been twisting his words on healthcare, specifically John McCain. He accused McCain of using his words for something that he has no intention of endorsing.
Sarah Palin, her husband Todd and daughter Piper and son Trig left the rest of the family in Wasilla or Palmer or who knows where and took off for HI for a little R and R, where she sported her John McCain visor, but Sister Sarah had crossed out McCain’s name with black marker. Goin’ Rogue!
On Friday's O'Reilly Factor guest host Laura Ingrham was running through the conservative reaction to Obama's Nobel speech, which most conservatives praised, except for Sarah Palin who tried to take credit for the speech by saying, "I thumbed through my book this morning to say wow, that really sounded familiar."
As both Sarah Palin's paranoia and enemies list continue to grow, her attorney has come forward and demonstrated how he parsed statements to imply the false impression that Palin was exonerated of all the ethics charges against her.
Our media, and specifically Washington Post most recently, allows the puppet masters -- entrenched Republican powerhouses like Malek and Cheney -- behind Sarah Palin to use an op-ed to perpetrate scientifically proven lies and fears (in addition to pretending she wrote it), in a blatant attempt to politicize science. Palin wags the dog and the dogs roll over to assist.
The Palinapooloza Book Tour jumped the shark today, when an internal memo of her demands for her book-signing appearance at the Mall of America was been released to the AP by accident. We are told we must address her by “Governor”, in English only, and that no foreign press will be allowed to question the Queen.
Palin’s book. Sigh. Must we? I suppose we must (mentally kicking John McCain AGAIN!) Well, I started by compiling the growing list of untruths and flat out fiction, and what some are now calling “libel” …but the list is literally so long, it won’t fit even within the bounds of my rather lengthy articles. And frankly, I can only stomach so much. The lies are so petty, so empirically false, so blatant, so Orwellian, so juvenile, so transparent…It’s hard not to get lost in the Crazy.
During a report on the NBC Nightly News, Andrea Mitchell dropped an interesting little nugget about Sarah Palin's new book. According to her adviser, Nicolle Wallace, Sarah Palin never took notes on their conversations, or called her to fact check anything. Wallace called the conversations in the book fabrications.
People don't seem to get the origin of the Nobel Peace Prize, because all over the internet, you will read:
"How can they do that?"
They can do that because that was the intention of the prize....from the beginning. And it is THEIR prize. It is privately funded. They can do whatever they want. It was intended for visionaries, not necessarily an "accomplishment".
After all, peace starts as a belief. Having the vision for a nuclear free world is huge. It starts there. Did W have that commitment? did John McCain? No. Even Hilary Clinton didn't embrace peace as the ideal the way Obama did and does. So, it is rather special, in point of fact.
The National Enquirer is reporting that they’ve gotten a peek at Palin’s ghost-written (by a partisan who pals around with white supremacists) "book" and it’s one huge pre-emptive attack on Levi. "Sarah got a ton of dough from her advance, but the book appears to be nothing more than a self-serving press release touting what she calls her 'happy marriage.'
Republicans are insinuating that Obama's "delay", aka, seeking input from naysayers and congress before making a decision regarding strategy in Afghanistan, is indicative of weakness on Obama's part. Apparently, Republicans have been suppressing Congressional War Powers and the Constitution for so long now that they just assume it's a given that everyone does so, and failure to do so is smugly rebranded as "delay".
Sarah Palin’s ghost-written book, “Going Rogue; An American Life” is set to come out early, on Nov 17, in time for the holiday season, and I’m really impressed that she has now managed to complete, albeit with the help of 4 writers and who knows how many editors, one speech and one book! Looks like she may not quit everything she starts….just those things icky, hard like being governor of a state facing financial difficulties after years of being flush. When the going gets tough, the pitbull gets quittin’!
Sarah Palin actually managed to show up for her speech in Hong Kong, which wasn't surprising because apparently all it takes to get her to go anywhere is a healthy paycheck. Palin spent her first speech on foreign soil trying to equate herself with President Obama, and going on the attack. Welcome to the new definition of patriotism in the GOP.
Levi Johnston keeps dropping bombs on Sarah Palin as in the new Vanity Fair piece where he claim wanted to secretly adopt, her teenage daughter's baby, “Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him."
In what’s been described as the "American Ding Dong goes to Hong Kong" by astute international posters, Mrs Sarah Palin (failed beauty contestant, failed VP candidate, and aborted first term Governor) has been asked to speak at the CLSA Investment Convention in Hong Kong, where she will give a speech on a topic such as geopolitics.
