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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Sarah Palin: We show what happened, back in 2008, I believe that´s when it started, when the media decided to just go along to get along with Obama, ingratiating themselves with him and vice versa. What we saw was these attempts to destroy these whistleblowers, those who were telling the truth, even in the campaign. (Snip) In the campaign, Greta, this is important for Americans to understand. I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain´s campaign at the time said that the media

Sarah Palin joined Greta Van Susteren on Friday night to slam President Obama for the comment during his big economic speech that Washington’s too obsessed with “phony scandals.” Palin wanted to know exactly which scandals the president was referring to as “phony,” and held up a “redneck version” of Karl Rove‘s classic white boards to remind viewers of all the scandals currently plaguing Obama, from Benghazi to NSA snooping, asking in disbelief if he’s really dismissing all of them as “phony.”(Snip) She told Van Susteren she was “banned” from talking about Wright and Bill Ayers because the Republican “elitists”

Mark Levin: You know, ladies and gentlemen, I hate to say this, but it´s right in front of our faces. Obviously, John Boehner does not want to get to the bottom of what took place in Benghazi. It´s obvious. He´s been asked over and over again by a majority of the Republicans in the House to set up a special investigative committee as is the tradition in these types of investigations. So you concentrate expertise and resources and time in one special committee rather than multiple committees that are also investigating

South Carolina’s fledgling William Wallace Caucus might suggest a prototype. She might need a council of advisers (“elders”) like John Brown’s Secret Committee of Six, which included Yankee crusader Theodore Parker and the husband of Julia Ward Howe (author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"). Others to include: obviously her husband, Todd; and Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and maybe the venerable Judge Andrew Napolitano. She also needs a major celebratory event (think Woodstock for American revolutionaries) — I’d suggested a Tea Party Congress

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
