Video about Sarah Palin can be found everywhere. This may not relevant, just tell what you thing about this video:
Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that Nancy Pelosi is telling a “tight-faced lie,” if she thinks we’re going to believe that 20% of the last batch of Obamacare waivers were handed out to businesses and unions in her distirict by … Continue reading .
Tim Pawlenty, the man who many think will pick up the frontrunner baton in the 2012 Republican presidential nomination fight should Mitt Romney drop it, took to the airwaves yesterday to follow the lead of another high profile presidential contender: Sarah Palin.On Fox News last night, Pawlenty deftly took up Palin’s almost completely fact-free attack on the waivers from the new health care reform law that some businesses providing low-payout plans have received since the law passed. The Obama administration has exempted these less than ideal health care plans from new regulations, fearful that low-income employees will lose what little coverage they have before the exchanges open in three years. Pawlenty, like Palin and a good part of the conservative blogosphere yesterday, called the practice of granting waivers “crony politics.”Pawlenty was picking up a meme first started by the Daily Caller yesterday with a report indicating that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s district was receiving an inordinate number of the waivers, which are typically granted to employers who offer low wages. Pelosi’s office didn’t respond to the Daily Caller, but the story was thoroughly debunked by Mother Jones’ Suzy Khimm, among others. The White House put out its own statement noting the waivers will not continue past 2014, and describing the process by which they’re granted.The right has been after these waivers for a while — claiming they show a basic corruption by the White House when it comes to its signature legislative achievement — and it’s little surprise that Obama opponents latched onto the Daily Caller story after it was published. “Unflippingbelievable! No, wait, it is believable,” Palin told the Daily Caller. “Seriously, this is corrupt.”Pawlenty picked up the meme and took it from the Palin fringe right into the Republican mainstream.”Another example of really crony politics, or crony capitalism,” Pawlenty told Sean Hannity Tuesday. “if you’ve got the right connections, the right lobbyist, the right interest group, you get your special deal, and the rest of us get our wallet out.”Watch (waiver stuff starts about 6:40): .
This is no ?on the one hand, on the other hand? summation of the 2012 Republican presidential prospect.
Newt Gingrich did his best Sarah Palin impression this week, lashing out at the press in interviews, statements, and even epic poetry for baiting him into condemning Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan and then piling on afterwards. Now he has the real thing on his side as Palin is slamming the “lamestream media” for his predicament.Palin leapt at the chance to get in a few digs at the press when asked by Sean Hannity on Wednesday what she thought of Newt’s ongoing Medicare crisis. Echoing Gingrich’s claim that he was “set up” by Meet The Press host David Gregory, Palin said that candidates needed to be on guard for nasty questions.”There’s got to be the preparation on all the candidates’ parts for those gotchas,” she said. “That’s what the lamestream media’s known for now a days, it’s the gotcha trip up questions and you just have to be prepared for it and overcome it.”Few prominent Republicans have offered up a defense of Gingrich’s comments themselves and Palin was no exception, saying that she didn’t agree with his assessment of the Ryan budget. She also subtly suggested Gingrich might not be man enough to handle pressure from pundits.”I don’t know why politicians feel that they have to apologize for something that they’ve said just because they’ve gone through a 24 hour cycle of the lamestream media given them a hard time for something that they said,” she told Hannity. “A politician either believes in what they just said in an interview or they don’t believe in what they just said. And if Newt Gingrich believes that it is right-wing social engineering to undo Obamacare and reform Medicare to make sure that we provide a safety net for our seniors who are going to need health care coverage, then, say so. But don’t apologize later just because the media has dinged you on what it is that you said.”Palin went much farther than Gingrich has in attacking Gregory, however, labeling him “racist” for asking Gingrich whether his claim that Barack Obama was a “food stamp president” was a dogwhistle.”Well, talk about racism, that was a racist tinged question from David Gregory,” she said. “He made it sound like if you’re black, you are on food stamps and the President is referring to you as being on food stamps. I think that’s racist.”Her advice for Newt? Ditch the press entirely.”Ignore some of these reporters and their requests for us to comment and be interviewed,” she said. “We know going into what they are going to do to us, to a conservative. So, why participate in their game?”Newt, who is reportedly considering returning to the Sunday news shows this weekend, apparently isn’t taking her words to heart. .
***UPDATED with Sarah Palin’s Fox Business interview with Eric Bolling*** Sarah Palin came out swinging tonight, saying that Newt should stand behind his words and not apologize no matter what the media says about it. She even noted that he wouldn’t have apologized if the media hadn’t gotten in a huff about what he said. … .
Sarah Palin went on Hannity to criticize president Obama (what else?) and had a “Fraudian” slip, as Joe McGinniss put it. Apparently, she’s running…While she spouts her usual nonsense, there’s a bill in congress to cut funding for special needs education.The leadership in the House of Representatives proposed a budget bill ? known as a Continuing Resolution — which would eliminate $100 billion in federal spending over the next seven months, until September 30, 2011 which marks the end of the federal fiscal year. This proposes the deepest cuts to education in recent history, including slashing special education (IDEA grants to states) by over half a billion dollars.Did Sarah Palin tweet? Did she write a passionate Facebook note about it? Did she go on Fox News to protest this ill conceived bill?She promised families with children with special needs that they would have a friend and advocate in the White House if she was elected vice-president. Considering “all” she did for chidren with special needs since the 2008 campaign, if she enters the race for the presidency in 2012, what kind of promises would she make?Apart from parading a poorly clothed Trig in all weathers on her Going Rogue book tour, exposing him to the crowds during the flu season, taking him to Tea Party rallies and making speeches reaffirming her pro-life credentials because she chose not to abort him, what kind of advocacy for special needs has she embraced?Donating $1000 of other people’s money to a national Down syndrome organization doesn’t count, as it’s cancelled out by her charging her usual $100,000 to speak at a special needs group fundraiser.Attacking Rahm Emanuel for using the word retarded in private while defending Rush Limbaugh for using it repeatedly in public doesn’t count.Whining about the desecration of the iconic image of a mother’s love for her special needs child doesn’t count.Misunderstanding a joke on Family Guy and using Bristol on Facebook to attack the makers of the program doesn’t count.Becoming all lachrymose on camera after meeting dear 12-year old cousin Matthew (who has Down syndrome) for the first time on Sarah Palin’s Alaska doesn’t count. Saying something about this bill would count for something; urging people to sign the following petition would help.Help Kids with Special Needs Succeed in SchoolEvery year, millions of children with disabilities or at risk of developmental delays enter school already behind other kids their age. Without early therapy and treatment, many will never catch up.All kids deserve a chance to learn, build lifelong skills and achieve their dreams. But budget cuts threaten the ability for young children with special needs to get the right treatment when they need it — before age five. With the number of children with special needs growing every year, we can’t afford to lose funding for these crucial services.We need federal support to identify these children with special needs and get them the right treatment and therapy early so that they have a greater chance of catching up to their peers.Make sure every child starts school ready and able to learn. Tell Congress not to cut funding for services for kids with undiagnosed disabilities, and to increase disability resources in coming years.In February I wrote about another proposed cut to the budget, also related to special needs. I asked the same questions about tweets and facebook notes. The answer? Crickets!Reader HS sent me another couple of screeshots and I had to include them in this post!(H/T to texasgal2009 for the link to the petition).
