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

Comments:
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 .
Had Palin only occasionally had an opinion , her views might have been taken seriously.

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.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.
