Sarah Palin: Lame Duck President



Another great Facebook post. She nails it too:

After listening to the President’s press conference today, let’s keep in mind the following:

This is the same president who proposed an absurdly irresponsible budget that would increase our debt by trillions of dollars, and whose party failed to even put forward a budget in over 800 days! This is the same president who is pushing our country to the brink because of his reckless spending on things like the nearly trillion dollar “stimulus” boondoggle. This is the same president who ignored his own debt commission’s recommendations and demonized the voices of fiscal sanity who proposed responsible plans to reform our entitlement programs and rein in our dangerous debt trajectory. This is the same president who wanted to push through an increase in the debt ceiling that didn’t include any cuts in government spending! This is the same president who wants to slam Americans with tax hikes to cover his reckless spending, but has threatened to veto a bill proposing a balanced budget amendment. This is the same president who hasn’t put forward a responsible plan himself, but has rejected reasonable proposals that would tackle our debt. This is the same president who still refuses to understand that the American electorate rejected his big government agenda last November. As I said in Madison, Wisconsin, at the Tax Day Tea Party rally, “We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to pay for it.”

Now the President is outraged because the GOP House leadership called his bluff and ended discussions with him because they deemed him an obstruction to any real solution to the debt crisis.

He has been deemed a lame duck president. And he is angry now because he is being treated as such.

His foreign policy strategy has been described as “leading from behind.” Well, that’s his domestic policy strategy as well. Why should he be surprised that he’s been left behind in the negotiations when he’s been leading from behind on this debt crisis?

Thank you, GOP House leaders. Please don’t get wobbly on us now.

2012 can’t come soon enough.

– Sarah Palin

We need someone who does not speak in sound bites but with conviction and passion for what they believe. That is why President Reagan was so great, he inspired and let you know exactly how he felt and why he was taking action. We already know the faults and failures of Obama. I want the candidate to tell me what he or she is going to do to correct the path this country has taken. Be bold, be honest, be positive. The American people are looking for a honest leader.

Sarah Palin has guts and she loves America and it shows. I’d love to see her go up against obama in a presidential candidate debate. She’d wipe up the floor with him.

SARAH and MARCO……..that’s MY dream ticket….if only if only if only I think there are a great number of Repubs who could beat the girly man-child squatter in OUR HOUSE….Sarah,Marco,Perry,Christie,Mitt,Bachman,Col.West….another on my wish list…but he’s gotta wait awhile is Jeb Bush. Any one is better and more accomplished than this jugg-earred fool who’s destroying our great country

I agree, except I think Congressman West should be Governor Palin’s running mate. We need his military background, for one thing. For another, as a black conservative, Congressman West would take the “race card” out of the left’s rhetorical arsenal, just as Governor Palin would deny them the “gender card”. These factors would make a Palin-West ticket practically unbeatable. We also need continuity. The restoration of America is a long-term project. President Palin won’t be able to accomplish everything that needs to be done to restore America in the eight years she’ll be in office. So Vice President West (with Governor Scott Walker as his running mate) will have to take the baton from President Palin in 2020 and build on the foundation she will have laid. And since Congressman West is only 50 years old, he’ll be old enough to be wisened by experience and young enough to have… Read more »

I LOVE IT when Sarah Palin kicks butt’s AND takes names!!! “May you live in interesting times” or Is she or isn’t she??? THAT is the Question. Sarah Palin IS running for president. PERIOD. ANY one with a brain can see this. This apparently is why most of the Washington beltway pundit conservatives (and I use the label LOOSLY) are having trouble getting their heads around it. This is one of the best fake-outs in politics today. A “stealth Campaign”. Can we say hiding in plan sight? Yes, I think we can. The fact that Palin has NOT declared defangs the press and renders them impotent. If they go after her they look foolish AND vindictive all at the same time. Find ANY thing in those 24,000 e-mails you searched diligently through? “Whats the problem?? she’s not even running”,… For the press it is a no win situation. For Palin… Read more »

I think she gives him too much credit referring to his “policy”. He doesn’t have a policy only two goals: his reelection and the destruction of our country. The closer he comes to realizing that his reelection is not going to happen the harder he is going to push for bringing down the country by any means.

It refers to any official who doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of being re-elected (either by virtue of term-limits, or, as in this turd’s case, by having NO VIRTUE), whose remaining days in office are but clicks on the clock.

I’d say she’s SPOT ON, again.

I know what you mean, but I don’t think she is teasing. I think she genuinely does not want to waste a dime of campaign money so, I think, she will wait till the LAST minute to announce her candidacy and she will stay relevant until then through social media, Hannity, etc. which does not cost anything. I feel 99.95% sure she will run and when she starts, she will hit the ground running like a dynamo and the media won’t know what hit them. I trust that her father described her correctly, “She’s not retreating, she’s reloading.”

Just my opinion.

Exactly. She’s been running circles around them as a *private citizen* — they don’t know what to do with her, how to react. By the time they get their wind and stammer their lying jackass replies, she’s ten steps ahead of them.

Wait till she’s got the bully pulpit of the GOP nominee.
