Sarah Palin tweeted just a few moments ago that DC needs to grow up and get to work, that Americans are tired of one ginned up crisis after another:

Amen.

UPDATE: Sarah Palin decided to elaborate on her tweet on her FaceBook:

D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.

Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or “more revenue” as he likes to call it. The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.

If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.

If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.

If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then let’s stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

– Sarah Palin

    I would love to her in the ring with Obama….How do you say “ASSWHOOPIN”‘?

    • rsfan1

      She did perform better in the debate against Biden than Ryan.

    • PVG

      She would really give his mom-pants a shellacking! I would pay to see that!

      • TickedWhiteDude

        Hahaha!!! Queue the Benny Hill theme song and watch him run…

        • Bryan Ewbank

          Nice…. Barack would say “… it’s …” then >>BOOM<<

      I’m not certain how many languages there are on earth, but regardless, the language you used saids it loud and clear. I’m sure your right on, especially of there is a baseball in the room.

    • opinionatedhermit

      LOL!!! and, unlike Obama, at least Sarah doesn’t throw a baseball like a little girl….

    • Cindy09

      I am so looking forward to hear her at the CPAC Convention!!! It is going to be a blast and an excellent opportunity to bring some sanity back!

    • BlueGood

      I have yet to regret that day in early ’09 when I composed a letter & faxed to Sarah Palin to her office in Alaska, telling her from my POV, the LSM & Liberals were deathly afraid of her, CARRY ON…just be you!

      My God, this woman could help you turn your Country around America!

      God Bless Sarah & the “FIRST FAMILY OF CONSERVATIVE HEARTS”!

  • stillgoing

    You go girl!

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      Love the way she included the REAL reason for gov’t hoarding ammo which, combined with citizen disarmament, equals the inevitable: martial law…the tyrant’s ultimate goal.

      • 1endtimes2020

        A good womans’ intuition strikes again!!

  • PVG

    AMEN Gov and RS!

  • Sober_Thinking

    She is always on point isn’t she?

  • nibblesyble

    This is why real conservatives love her…she is always dead on!

    • StandProudNow

      I honestly believe that MOST people would love her, even democrats, if they just were to really HEAR her without the spin of the left media.

      She’s about the ONLY one who cares about the People. The big guy, the little guy, ALL the guys!!

      • nibblesyble

        Couldn’t agree more Stand!

  • colliemum

    Spot as always, is our Sarah!

    Can’t wait for her CPAC speech!

    • Cindy09

      Me too!! It’s gonna be fun to compare Romney’s speech to her!! Waow! What a hit and miss! The GOP could have done better! I hope they understand that before 2016 before Hillary takes the stage as Presidential candidate. I hope it is gonna be the Year of the Woman. Bring it on Sarah Palin!!

      • OneThinDime

        Do you really think Michelle Obama is going to let Hillary take the nod in 2016? Not likely she will and will pull a knife in the back like her husband did.

        • Cindy09

          Michelle Obama? No chance!!

          But by then, they might want to try to change the Constitution and push for a third term for Obama. This is highly probable given the messiah-like status he enjoys!

          • OneThinDime

            Watch what she is doing, she is on talk shows, the Oscars, new hairdo to soften her, she “cares about the kids”, etc.

  • c4pfan

    You know they won’t though!

    • PhillyCon

      Palin knows that too.

  • ernst1776

    Here, here Sarah…. we are sick and tired of the DC games.

  • DocBarry1

    Where are the GOP in Congress – listen to the Governor and stop being bullied by the Left

    • crosshr

      GOPs are in mom’s place at the couch sucking their big thumb waiting for mommy’s cookies. GOP moan & whine when Sarah whack their arse then get defensive, at the same time they so look forward for Pelosi and Obama to place their boots up their drain plug ! sickens me

  • BostonBruin

    Can’t wait for her speech at CPAC next month!

    • c4pfan

      Me too.

    • Conniption Fitz

      Unless Newt and Cruz are talking, Palin’s will be the only one I watch.

      No way has Romney got anything to say. They are wasting a slot on him.

  • Terrenceor

    DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS

    WHITE FLAG REPUBLICANS

  • deTocqueville1

    She’ll be back in the fight with her CPAC appearance and her speeches. Look for an increasing and commanding presence as she, Levin, DeMint and Cruz lead the counter attack on DC.

    • Amjean

      Thank God!

      You forgot Rand Paul; he has been lighting up the sky with his commentary
      on many conservative topics. Did you see the video of Rand Paul discussing
      sequestration? It was awesome!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001951614348 Rogue Rose

        He caved on Hagel..

        • Amjean

          Paul did not “cave” on Hagel. He stated his point of view all along.
          Rand Paul always said he had serious questions about Hagel, however,
          his opinion was that the president should be able to select his cabinet.
          He wanted the concerns to be out in the open. So he asked the questions.
          Which, I believe, were never answered. Surprise! Surprise!

          At least Rand Paul asked the questions. What about the other repubs
          who asked nothing, did nothing, then voted “no” for political purposes.

    • johnfromjersey

      We can only hope and pray.

    • StandProudNow

      Palin, Cruz, DeMint and Levin. What a Holy alliance!!

      Honorable, decent, patriotic and WILLING TO FIGHT!!

  • deTocqueville1

    Another barn burner!

  • slpence

    Gov. Palin does get straight to the point! She also tells the truth which is why she is so hated by both party elites and media. Can’t wait for her CPAC speech! Love the Gov!!

  • deeme

    Obama’s running for four more years…he’s dead set against a budget because it’s alot harder to steal taxpayer dollars when people are paying attention..

  • http://twitter.com/nestroyat64 Johann Streit

    In 2008, Sarah came on the scene only in the final months of the battle, which turned out to be too late. But she has been on Barack’s case ever since like no other. This puts her right up in a league with Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich when it comes to ideological prowess, resilience and steadfastness. Her time will come in 2016. We will all need to work very hard for that.

    • johnfromjersey

      Well Johann, I hope you’re right, but, the fact that over 30% of registered republicans sat out the last election. With that amount of apathy we couldn’t win a race if we were the only ones running.

      • StandProudNow

        If she was running there would be no apathy!

        • AmericanDream12

          Amen to that! We are sick and tired of the gop imposing losers after losers to us and vilifying the good conservatives. I understand completely why these 30% did not vote. It’s a good lesson for the gop – even though seems that they are not learning a thing, but may be the stupid voters who choose romney to be our candidate will think twice next time before choosing the lamest candidate during the primary..

  • Cindy09

    Johann Streit, I totally agree!!

  • Cindy09

    Agreed!!

  • sickandtired

    Finally, a voice of common sense!

    She’s one of us and loves this country as we do!

  • RefudiateGOPe

    This video needs to be redone to include the GOPe.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Beth-Saunders-Huffman/592774187 Beth Saunders Huffman

    She is the only one that can be trusted with very few others, CRUZ, Mark, Demint. She can run this country hands down compared to any OF the clowns that we have elected,she IS NOT SHACKLED ANYMORE!! She is going to shake things up and make it all real interesting!!!!!!!!!!! I promise you that!!!!!!!! STAND SARAH STAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • RefudiateGOPe

      I stand with Sarah Palin because Sarah Palin stands with us.

      • StandProudNow

        Well said.

  • abe-froman

    Exactly why I love Sarah …and the moonbats cant stand her – she seem to be right an awful lot.

  • OneThinDime

    We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. Oh the libtards are going to crazy over that line!

  • idesign2

    Here is another recent Palin quote..:)

    “We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic that so many have fought and died for.”

      – Sarah Palin

    —————-
    Just as we have said. The doom and gloom – and it’s coming from both sides of aisle – is nothing but a desire to keep the government growing. We the People should welcome the spending cut. We have lived beyond our means for far too long. It’s time to pay the Piper and that means we need to start withdrawing the Government teat and begin learning to fend for ourselves.

    I hope that gets some dander up. She says it like it is.

  • Rshill7

    If it’s only .3% of annual spending why are so many folks saying 2% I wonder?

    According to my calculator which accepts very large numbers, she is right. The answer, using her numbers came out to .003, which would be three tenths of one percent.

    If the sequester is only 85 billion per year, it’s even less than that. .0023 or two tenths of one percent. I guess some folks just don’t know how to do percentages. It appears that Sarah does :-)

    • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Wolfie

      When Liberals run out of fingers their math skills fall off sharply. Percentages… They only know that word from the WH talking points “1%,ers” “We are the 99%” Stalin would be proud to have such low-info, low IQ, useful Idiots.

  • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Wolfie

    What a Conservative Warrior!!!! Even after these years she still scares the living heck out of Libtards! I think she scares them more then any other Conservative, even Rush. No disrespect to Rush intended. She is singly handed doing what 98% of the GOP fail to do – Stand up for this Country and it’s Proud Traditions and God inspired Values! I hope she blows them away again at CPAC! Can’t wait! God Bless Sarah Palin!

    • http://twitter.com/JuliC1100 Juli C

      Sometimes I think he is in aw of her too. I know he has friends that are Palinistas. I hope they are prepaired for the over flow because there are many that will be where ever she is. Her army is waiting ready and keeping their powder dry.

  • korn8131

    For what it’s worth; Sarah pointed out what is really going on with Obama and his diversionary tactics one year ago. She was right on target then and a year later absolutely nothing has changed!!!

    “Let’s Talk About the Real Issues, Mr. President”

    by Sarah Palin on Monday, March 12, 2012 at 7:41pm ·

    The far Left continues to believe American voters are not smart enough to grasp the diversionary tactics it employs to distract us from the issues our President just doesn’t want to talk about – issues that affect us all every day and must be addressed.

    Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s “enemy of the week” if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about. (Remember when I said you don’t need a title to make a difference?)

    Just off the top of my head, a few of these concerning issues include: a debt crisis that has us hurdling towards a Greek-style collapse, entitlement programs going bankrupt, a credit downgrade for the first time in our history, a government takeover of the health care industry that makes care more expensive and puts a rationing panel of faceless bureaucrats between you and your doctor (aka a “death panel”), $4 and $5 gas at the pump exacerbated by an anti-drilling agenda that rejects good paying energy sector jobs and makes us more dependent on dangerous foreign regimes, a war in Afghanistan that seems unfocused and unending, a global presidential apology tour that’s made us look feeble and ridiculous, a housing market in the tank, the longest streak of high unemployment since World War II, private-sector job creators and industry strangled by burdensome regulations and an out-of-control Obama EPA, an attack on the Constitutional protection of religious liberty, an attack on private industry in right-to-work states, crony capitalism run amok in an administration in bed with their favored cronies to the detriment of genuine free market capitalism, green energy pay-to-play kickbacks to Obama campaign donors, and a Justice Department still stonewalling on a bungled operation that armed violent Mexican drug lords and led to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people.

    I’m sure I missed a few things, but the list is just for starters. Along with millions of others, I’m willing and free to discuss these issues with the President anywhere, anytime. The President will dismiss all of these problems by saying, “Well, uh, ‘change isn’t easy.’” But considering that candidate Obama promised to turn back the waters and heal the planet, the American people had at least a reasonable expectation that, at the bare minimum, he wouldn’t bankrupt our country.

    It shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed. Barack Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas about his promised “fundamental transformation” of our country, I welcome the media to join ordinary Americans in finally vetting Barack Obama. The media failed to do so in 2008 to the detriment of us all. Maybe this time around they can do their job.

    Well said. As usual Gov. Palin gets right to the point. There is really no excuse for the government people (in both parties) to be acting this way. And as Rush said today, they’re not really cutting ANYTHING, just slowing the rate of increase. If the country can’t handle this, we’re finished.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sheryl.hancock.58 Sheryl Hancock

    If only Sarah had been our nominee. The GOP made sure she would not get in. They started on her right from the get-go, from within the GOP. I was so mad I could’ve spit nails. She was gracious. I would’ve slapped them silly, had I seen any of them face to face. Another reason we have to get rid of Karl Rove, et al.

    • c4pfan

      Plus, they still don’t get it. Treat her like dirt and she always tries to work with them.

    This is the only person with a voice who is sticking up for the American people. All the ones who supposedly were have turned out to be fakes and phonies. Gov. Palin is the only one who hasn’t caved. Shame on voters for not supporting her for President. You deserve what you get. God bless you Gov. Palin.

  • shivabeach

    It’s pretty obvious Sarah just ruined any chance of her ever running for president with her stockpiling ammo thing. She talks about the president creating civil unrest and what is she doing?She talks about the president creating civil unrest and what is she doing?

    It’s also pretty obvious she relieves the GOP of any responsibility here. Once again she is very wrong in that the majority of Americans want taxes raised on the very wealthy. I don’t know who is writing her speeches for her anymore but they should really start paying attention to what is going on in America.

  • Rocko19

    Palin/2016 ~ No one better then she, no one….After Allen West is fully vetted, he should be considered for Sarah’s VP…..No one has ever been vettedd like Sarah, 24,000 emails and she comes out smelling like a ROSE..
