    PALIN 2012- The obamabot were literally dancing in the streets of chicago the night he got elected saying awesome things like "he gonna pay ma mortgage! he gonna pay ma bills!". Now those useful idiots are STILL waiting for those checks to arrive in the mail. HAHAHAHA. Liberal socialist (redundant) policians will all be out of work very soon. Real change is coming to Washington....

    Her speech in California shows just how comfortable she has become. She is at the top of her game. It was a great speech and shows that Pres. Obama will be in trouble in two years if jobs and the economy does not turn around.

    Teatards sure do have a lot of time on their hands to go on bus tours to complain about unemployment rates instead of beating the pavement to find a job and actually working. First stop on that bus tour should be a rural farm, where they can offload their misinformed, fearmongering, barely-coherent moron army to "take back" our jobs from migrant workers. Anything short of that and they don't mean a word of anything they say.

    Here goes the nut job again. Would this lady please go home and take care of her kids. It is bad enough see her mug all the time, but her husband is on the trail with her. Neither one of them have anything important to do? They must lead dull lives. Their poor children never get to see them. I can not beleive that people really believe what this crazy woman is saying. All of the candidates that she has backed are crazy too. I cannot believe the things that come out of the tea partiers mounths. They think people do not understand their little code messages, but trust me the true Americans see through them. They are going down Nov. 2, 2010. We are just letting them hang themselves.

    Keep it up Sarah, and demand your place at the top of the 2012 Bagger ticket. Show those spineless republican moderates who is in charge. Betty the birther and all the bagger liars know what is good for the country, and it is you Sarah. It is up to you to show Americans that they have too many freedoms and government protections, and that we can safely rely on billionaires and foreign governments to look out for us.

    Go Sarah! Drive the leftists nuts! A very short drive indeed...

    Two Weeks and the Peoples' voice will be heard. Throw out the DemocRATS that have shown they don't care what the voters think or want. Now we get a chance to jam our boot up their back side like they jammed health care down our throats. good riddance to bad trash! Hurry Nov. 2!!!

    Sarah Palin was painting the yellow line down the middle of the Alaskan Highway. The first day she painted three miles. The second day she painted two miles. But the third day she painted only one mile.

    Todd: You are painting less and less each day, what seems to be the problem?
    Sarah: The paint bucket keeps getting farther away.

    Sarah reminds me the late MJ. He was dancing and swinging his head even if there was no music being played. Sarah is moving around and cheering as if she is the leader of something while she is not!

    German History has shown us what can happen to a civilization when a small group of right wingnut extremists take over a major political party and begin to remove our freedoms.

    A pre victory tour. How great is this. And still Gibbs, (the propaganda minister) said this election has nothing to do with Obozo's policies. Sh, don't wake them, let them lie in blissful slumber until November 2012. Then we can be rid of the Kenyan Marxist.

    these Tea party people just can't be the ones who are unemployed or under employed in the country. They seem to have money to keep running across the country back and forth and I bet they all didn't mind the Obama tax cut they got for the middle class. So I guess they want to repeal healthcare so their kids can be denied coverage if they are pre-conditioned or can be dropped from their parents' policies at age 18. With that being said just what the heck are they angry about?

    Liberty at the ballot box? What does that mean? I thought 'Sharia' Angle said she was going to use 2nd amendment remedies if she lost. I hope Americans exercise their freedom and reject every bagger in November. That includes 'AIP, don't worry about me' Miller, 'Che' Rubio, 'Kolonel Karl' Paladino, 'Buddha' Paul, 'Counterfeit' Buck, 'Witches' Brewer, and all the other baggers dressed in republicans clothing.

  24. "I Want My Country Back" Libs Go Home

    OK.....CNN's "Palin Staffers" have another story to cover, so next up will come the "Paid/Palin Hate Bloggers"......AMAZING!
    Left Wing Liberals do not understand anything about what is really going on in this country;

    1. Conservatives are really in the great majority, not Liberals, and not even "moderates"....the majority of Americans want the exact things the Tea Party wants, but the Democratic party (from Obambi down) do not believe it.
    2. This election is really not about the economy (the economy is really only a symptom of the greater problems caused by Liberalism) it's not even about the debt....although the thought of passing on such enormous indebtedness to our children and grandchildren, goes against everything that makes sense to the average American.
    3. This election is about the Greatness of this nation, her great history, her great people, her great independency, her great Constitution, being trashed by the Left and by Obambi on a constant. We are just as great, (or greater) a nation today as we were 100 years ago! The same pride swells in our hearts each time we hear the “Star Spangled Banner”, but to hear our leaders apologize and even criticize the very points in history that made America the great nation she is. We cringe when we see our leaders attempting to make America more like the UK or France (of which both these nations, as well as others, owe us their very lives) so we can better “share the wealth”!
    4. This election is also about Entitlements: We the working people of this nation, who pay the largest amount of taxes, believe in a strong work ethic and that nothing is free! We are tired of people wanting something for nothing and we are even more tired of crooked politicians who want to give our hard earned money to those who want it for nothing in return!
    This country cannot:
    a. Pay lazy government employees outrageous salaries (and that same employee cannot be terminated) and they collect it for life! Why should someone in the private sector pay for/furnish thier own retirement and those same workers get up to 60 holiday days, plus sick days, plus health insurance, plus retirement equaling up to 60 +% of their highest annual salary....FOR LIFE!!! This must stop!
    b. Welfare recipients (we can go on all day with this one) but I will only site this; when Bill Clinton was forced to move to the middle after being handed a similar defeat in Congress, he initiated "Ending Welfare As We Know It" and 80 million people fell of the welfare roles immediately......no one starved, no one went without.....what they did was.....they got a job and went to work! Our welfare/entitlement society encourages slothfulness!
    These are the reasons why the Democratic party and Obambi in particular will take such a beating in 15 days!

    "Liberty at the Ballot Box"

    HAHA. Riiiiiight. Subtext: "For whites only...if you are a minority, inner city resident or otherwise a member of a demographic that leans heavily Democrat, please check with a GOP "voter integrity" representative before attempting to cast a ballot or you WILL be accused of voter fraud."
