Palin apologizes for calling
some Republicans ‘wusses’

CNN, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 12/4/2012 11:17:41 AM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin apologized Monday night for describing some Congressional Republicans as “wusses” who are being “wobbly” on conservative principles in the fiscal cliff debate. “Well I guess I shouldn’t call politicians names, so I apologize for calling the wobbly ones wusses,” Palin said on Fox News. (Snip) “The point is that we are a bankrupt country,” she added. “There isn’t enough money in the world to pay back the future generations that we have stolen from and foreign countries that we have borrowed from and, through quantitative easing,

Two rules:

1) Never apologize. It´s a sign of weakness.
2) Rule 1 is especially true when one is correct.

The older she gets, the more childish and immature she gets. And I thought she had potential. Time to go away, Sarah. You´re 15 minutes is up.

The MSM has their panties in a bunch. Even when Sarah is right, they have to think she is wrong.

Any rational person believes that Repubs in Congress are wusses or worse. Even the dumb Dems look at McCain hugging Kerry and realize that Repubs are wusses.

I have said before that Sarah needs to cultivate a more serious image. That means no words or phrases like wusses, lamestream media, cojones, etc. It´s a small thing that could yield big rewards--for her and for the country.

Amen #5. I´ll never fully forgive the republican establishment for what they did to her and to her family. Conservative mothers like Sarah are some of the only people left with enough courage to stand up to the beltway bullies and rino wusses in the GOP. Don´t apologize Sarah. Those wusses stood by and watched our nation crumble. They deserve to be called much worse.

Why apologize for telling the truth?

When Jack Nickolson uttered the famous line, "You can´t handle the truth!"- he could have been talking about the GOP leadership. We got in line, and once again voted for the candidate we were told to, and LOST, again.

Sarah, no apologies necessary. Boehner on the other hand....

It is easy for Gov Palin to say whatever she wants as she holds no office and she cannot be voted out of that office. Boehner, like him or not, is accountable for things that do or do not get done on his watch.

I think some miss the point. If you ´apologize´ while repeating the insult, it´s not really an apology. It´s a repetition for those who might have missed it the first time.

If you throw in ´I shouldn´t have called the wobbly ones that name´ into the ´apology´, you´ve widened the insult net.

The art of the knife-twist masquerading as an apology is no longer the exclusive purview of the Alinskyites, it would seem. Probably a good thing.

Too highbrow?

Oh, and America is not bankrupt and the future is not hopeless. If we had the good sense to elect someone who understands business, or at the very least someone who took Accounting 101 somewhere along the way, the conversation would be very different, on both sides of the aisle.

Sara is right! She knows our majority leader is going to cry and shake, and most of the rest of them have been blackmailed to do the same. Thus they are wusses. We need to break this system before it breaks us. Look alive, people! And now the marxists are coming for the big money boys and girls, not just us low-lifes. But Sara still scares the beejeebers out of all of them and I think of her as Saint Sara of Wasilla. They all have done everything but burn her at the stake, but she is still strong. God bless you, Sarah.

She gets paid one million dollars a year to say provocative things once a week or so on Fox. How is that a manifestation of courage?

As for her having more, ah, testicular capacity than 99.99% of American men, I think not. Soldiers and cops willingly risk their lives each day for a lot less money.

When it comes to facing danger in one´s life, I would guess that Gov. Palin and her family run about the same risks as the average cop or fireman, more than a rear-echelon soldier and less than a combat troop. She undoubtedly has a substantial file of death threats to herself and her loved ones, and I hope her security is adequate. At least she can afford it. I´d cite the old saw about ´´walking a mile in her shoes,´´ but her critics couldn´t do it. And yes, I wish her language was a bit less folksy, but only so she wouldn´t get knocked for telling the truth in words that let some self-exalted types get away with ignoring what she says by criticizing how she says it.

It was a throwaway line, an afterthought. Naturally, CNN and its one-time students of News Manipulation 101, made it their headline.

Just as night follows day, you can count on it. Her threads always bring out the nitpickers, shallow thinkers and the just plain incorrect counties heard from.

Sarah Palin is an expert at being herself. In the seedy, seamy, secretive world of Politics, anyone who is genuine is looked upon suspiciously by the knee-jerk, pseudo-sophisticated gullible class. It’s refreshing to have someone say what she means, means what she says and if you don’t care for that sort of thing, sorry, but she’s not gonna put on a phony act just for you.

Who on the right gets their message out better than Palin? Her time was, and will be again. After selling out the country to have a seat in government, most republicans won´t have any integrity left; their weakness is cowardliness. We know we can trust her. Who else can you trust, besides Rush, Mark and Shawn?
I´ve thrown out all the wussy republican pitch letters received this year. Call the spade a spade: he is already our dictator in his rotten head, and until that and he ends, we are not free.

Delicious truth speaker,Sarah, is back.The Romney camp insulted her by not inviting her to speak at their convention, so why expect her to throw her support in his direction. She has her finger on the buttons better than any of the so called republicans. Things have become too ugly and entrenched politically that it is time to abandon party labels altogether. People can vote for whom they perceive is the best person to represent the constituents interests. Those who go to Congress with the best intentions invariably get overwhelmed by the party enforcers - as we have seen happen to too many of our good tea party candidates who made it to DC, only to be suborned by or ignored by the leadership machine. I think and believe the R party days are numbered, they are proven born losers as presently constituted.

That´s one of the most cutting "non-apologies" I´ve ever seen.

For those who criticize her for not supporting Romney, I would make a bet he asked her not to as he was moving to the center and he didn´t want her conservatism rubbing off.

re the content of some posters opinion on Sarah: It´s an East vs West thang.

Anybody born West of the big Sipiy gets Sarah. Yup we´re all unwashed boogerpickers out here in Resource Land. And of course, we´re the ones who LIVE in (all) the natural resources and not only know how to extract them, but were born to do it. So, we have to be discredited. Hence the meme: all Westerners are unwashed and "hicky". ooooh, I´m crushed; tears; i got tears in my eyes.

Flip side: Anybody who talks Eastern is an enemy. Plagues come out of the east, so do locusts. Think about it. Foggy Bottom is aligned with darker forces to the East.

We lost the election (without a landslide it was always gonna be a loss) cuz we won´t stop fighting amongst ourselves.

She should not have said wusses. More accurate might have been pansies, cowards, turncoats, poltroons, or just plain wenises.
My former party is free to wallow in their own corruption until their last gasp of relevance. From those tainted ashes I hope to see the rise of a new conservative party; one that loves this country more than its own power. If Sarah is at the helm, all the better.
Former GOP leadership and apologists need not apply.

You astute conservatives here get it... like 13, 18, 26... and many others above... When an apology is not an apology... [Mothers of siblings get it!]. It´s a reiteration that can be taken two ways... a double entrendre ... Shakespeare used it often...

Sarah knows exactly what she is saying... she speaks conviction, with courage and conscience...

I am glad she is back!

I am ready for a 3rd party. The GOP has been defined by the NWO/MSM/Progressives as racist, protector of the rich and can´t recover.

The Tea Party name has now been deemed a terrorist group.... including the original!

Maybe The Patriot Party... The Freedom Party... The Constitutionalist Party. Our platform could be adherence to the constitution, with guidance by God. Period.

Race, sex & other lib dividers would be a non issue... Just those who want the freedoms our constitution guarantees.

America is still 70 - 80% Christian, including many blacks & hispanics. We don´t have to appeal to gender, race, sex or any dividers. God has done that already.

We have a lot of strong leaders... Palin, West, Rubio, JC Watts & more would be a few.

Palin exceeded our expectations four years ago. Deep down we know there is no man in America cool enough, "macaroni" enough, champion enough, experienced enough, God fearing enough, and inspiring enough to draw all other men to his soul as he leads against the foe. There is no man here who will even name the foe. We sort of don´t want another Thatcher, potentially emasculating our weak and broken heroes, doing it for us backwards and in high heels. But even less do we want Romney, Ryan, Jeb, Rick or Fatso. We have no future, unless Palin figures out how to explain this dark age, or gets out of the way.

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through
