Americans to Sarah Palin:
Please stop talking

Washington Examiner, by T. Becket Adams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 6:49:41 PM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the politician Americans most want to stop talking, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey that polled voters on their opinion of six public figures. The survey, which was conducted June 30-July 7, excluding July 4, found that a majority of voters — 52 percent — believe Palin should just “be quiet.” The mother of five children,* Palin actually scored lower marks than Jesse Jackson, whom 45 percent of respondents say should keep quiet, as well as former Vice President Dick Cheney, who polled at around 42 percent, and Newt Gingrich, who came in at

And I say please stop with these ridiculous polls. Who believes a Wall Street/NBC poll anyway? She has a right to say what she wants. I say tell Obama to stop talking. I´m sick of looking at him every dang day, day in and day out.

Its the Establishment who wants Palin to stop talking because she is effectively exposing them for the frauds they are. If she wasn´t effective no one would care.

Keep talking Mrs. Palin. Someone has to tell the truth.

Remember Mississippi!

I would much rather have Sarah Palin running the country as she actually loves this country where as the current occupant of the White House is doing everything he can do to destroy America.

I don´t think we have lost ouir freedom of speech yet, so Sarah Palin still has the right to speak her opinion. It is those who have slandered her since her nomination to the vice presidency, who should have shut up from the outset. She has been slandered and abused long enough to have her day to speak as a public person and citizen. So, you shut up.

Sarah has as much right to speak as every citizen does. But a few diction and voice lessons sure would be nice for the listener. For someone doing a lot of public speaking she has a very annoying voice.

I posted yesterday - - that the Sarahcuda should spend more time with her yap shut.

Not that I don´t love her - - not that I don´t share her views. It´s just that she held a high elective office - - and chose to ditch it in order to make some real money.

Nothing wrong with that - - but if you´re in the political arena - - and you choose to drop out - - you should spend more time ruminating - - and less time blabbing.

Sounds like someone should know what they´re talking about before letting everyone else know their lack of education.

Sarah and the State of Alaska were inundated with frivilous lawsuits that demanded legal and expensive response. She gave up the Governorship to spare the state the taxpayer expense of responding to the faux lawsuit accusations. She left the state in good hands - her Lt. Governor - and better financial condition than when she took office.

In my mind, giving up the office was the noble and right thing to do.

Whenever I see Sarah on TV - I un-mute the sound and listen.

#9 - if you still believe your words, what a disappointment.

Do some commonsense thinking. Gov. Palin was earning about 125,000 annually, her husband and their fishing business about the same. So, with 250 annual income in a high cost of living state like Alaska, with lovers turned enemies overnight when she was selected to be the VP candidate. She was hit with 22 plus FRIVOLOUS ethics violations from day 1 after the VP selection, 5 children and responsible for her Own Legal Defense costs which by the time she made her decision to resign was already at 1/2 million dollars for only half of the cases contested. What the filers of the complaints had jointly decided to do was to personally bankrupt the Palins.
Not only were her Legal expenses high, the State of Alaska was coming up on $2 million fighting them........then there were also the staffers who also had to pay their own legal fees because of the hating low-life idiots filing "Mickey Mouse" ethics complaints. Yes, even those had to be processed.
Her approval rating in Alaska was over 80% when she was selected and she had accomplished even more than she promised in her campaigning. (cont´d)

(cont´d)She loved her job but would not let EGO destroy her family or Alaska.
Can you blame her for not wanting to burden her family with over a MILLION in legal fees at the conclusion of the battle with the frivolous complaints.

Her opportunities at the time she resigned were still a long shot and not a sealed deal.

So, I say, keep on talking Gov. Palin. You have the backbone to say what is needed to be relayed to the masses. We certainly cannot depend on the media to print and report accurate statements from you.

By the way, before she left office she got a bill passed to eliminate the Governor having to pay their own legal expenses due to being in office. No other states had their executives responsible for legal fees due to their office.

I´m astonished 52% of the population even remembers who she is, let alone finds her irritating enough to want to silence her.
I don´t remember the last time I saw her on TV. Of course, I don´t watch reality shows. Wasn´t her last gig dancing with Tony Danza or something? Or was she sipping martinis with the Kardashians? Seriously, who knows? Who cares?

Well, yes, I would feel sorry for her financial problems if I didn´t know that Sarahpac started paying her personal lawyer $6000 a month in November 2009 (check the FEC filing), and that there´s a Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund to which you may contribute for the purpose of defending her against any past, present, and future legal actions, to quote the website itself (www.sarahpalinlegaldefensefund.org).

She is free to say whatever she likes, in whatever venue she finds that will pay her to do so. All commentators are.

Who goes out and asks the public what politician should shut up? How stupid. Especially for so-called journalists. I know it´s hard to remember the 1st Amendment. There are so many amendments it gets so confusing. Sarah Palin annoys a lot of people, so what. One thing you have to respect is the passion of her supporters. None of the other persons mentioned have supporters who are as passionate. I´m not a fan of hers but I would never, ever say she should stop talking. This is still America.

Sarah gives truthful, inspirational talks and I enjoy listening to every one of them. When was the last time we have heard any encouragement from Boehner or his country club cronies? The only conservatives doing any real talking are the up and coming patriots, which is why we have people out there like Sarah trying to motivate others to do something before we let the country get away from us.

On everything .
Palin says the same thing over

Spoken and written in enormous run on sentences .

It was one woman and five men. Instead of comparing her to Gingrich, Cheney, Gore, Jackson and Clinton, how about a set that is half men and half women. How about a set of six that includes, oh, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama, And then observing how many just want all the women to shut up, then throwing those responses out and then looking at the rest? People can be misogynistic but see it for what it is, which is not a reflection on content or style as it is interpreted here.

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people´s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.” “The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said. “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report.

Because Democrats are begging him to: The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue.

Without referring to Rice by name, he acknowledged in his letter that he made the wrong decision in that case. “I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will,” he

Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have voted. It

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, is resigning from the campaign. Benton, who previously held high-level roles in Ron Paul and Rand Paul’s campaigns, confirmed his resignation Friday evening, explaining that he is stepping down after his name surfaced in news reports about a scandal involving the 2012 presidential campaign. Earlier this week, a former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to charges related to receiving money from the Ron Paul presidential campaign in return for his endorsement.

The latest Gallup poll on President Obama job performance is out. At the top line, things could be worse for the president and his party. 44 percent approve of his performance, while 53 percent disapprove. That’s considerably worse than in the run-up to the 2010 election, and certainly cause for concern among Democrats. But Dems won’t be surprised by this split which, as I said, could be worse. The intensity numbers, however, are terrible for Obama and the Dems. 39 percent of Americans (essentially 2 in 5) say they strongly disapprove of the president’s performance. Only 17 percent say they strongly approve.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country.

Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A.

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina.
