Skip to comments.I was wrong, and I admit it

To the editor:
Back in 2008, right at the peak of the McCain/Palin, Obama/Biden presidential election, I wrote a scathing opinion to the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman about Sarah Palin (titled Caribou Barbie), and five years later, I would like to recant my opinion and tell the people of the Mat-Su Valley just how wrong I was at the time.
The Frontiersman published the opinion and it drew a lot of comments, mostly negative, and here we are almost five years later, and I want to pass on what I have learned.
In closing, Sarah Palin warned us, and that is irrefutable. But I have learned from it the hard way. Instead of forward, which is the current battle cry, it seems that backward is the new norm. I shudder to think what this country will be like in the next four years.
Yes, Sarah warned us, and some listened. I dont agree with her all the time, but what is intriguing is that she somehow knew. How, I ask? Not sure, but she knew, and that is fact. Maybe I should have listened.

Maybe you should have opened your eyes, Chuck.
Because off of the campaign trail the Kenyan Kommie made no secret of who he was and what he wanted to do to us.
Its pretty simple.
A dedicated far-leftie and socialist from the cradle does not spend the massive expense and effort to run for President in the hopes of governing as a “moderate.”
America will be lucky to survive Obama.
How did Sarah know? Because she has a brain in her head, you dolt! (Not you, Alaska.)
A little late to the Party there Chuck... But better late than never I guess.
What a pathetic apology. He was wrong about what? What did Palin correctly predict?
Let's see what Chuckie has to say then.
Easy - having 1) a conscience 2) common sense.
Attributes in rare supply on the political left...
The link provided will answer that question.
Good for Charles, even if way too late.
Did you read the entire letter?
"She stood up and said clearly, openly and without reservation just exactly what Obama would do and how he would do it. She said that he had socialistic if not Marxist views, that wealth would be taken away and redistributed and that he would create a new economic dependent class. Not to mention a power grab in the justice department and what appears to be complete control over all government functions, regardless of opposing dissent."
I went to the link. It was just the letter itself. Maybe the mobile version doesn’t include everything...but I looked before posting.
Yeah, there’s nothing at the link for me. If I feel like it, I’ll check it when I get home, since no one can fill in the details.
I read everything that was available on their mobile site. Thanks for your concern.
I agree with you. Whomever Charles Fredericks is he doesn’t seem to express himself very well. I have no idea what he is trying to say
Hey Charles...FU and your apology.
It’s too late now, we are on the path.
Isn’t it funny how all of a sudden the unlearned who voted for Barry Hussein Soetoro and his cronies get religion and now wonder about the next four years. Outcome based education is alive and well in the USSSA.
Sorry, the way the letter was posted, there is no way to tell that anything is missing, from the salutation to the closing. I still went to the link, I promise. They must clip it for mobile users.
It's To late, the Constitutionally Limited Republic is done for. It's your shame, not ours...
I am sorry folks, I have been in a crappy mood since the 6th. It is dips like this and my neighbors and friends that are enablers of the false Messiah @ 1600 Penn.
Go see your CPA or Tax pro and run the numbers if to see where you are if you go over the Cliff. I have, search my post.
It is guys like Chuckie Babie that now own it...
You forgot critical thinking skills...
I’d have posted the entire letter, but I thought that doing so was frowned upon here.
it’s just a brief letter stating that Sarah was right when she claimed Obama was a socialist and would redistribute money, among other things.
Sometimes, links don’t open for me on mobile, maybe it will open for you later. It’s just a short letter, nothing earth shattering, but just someone else realizing they were wrong.
Jesus said something about prophets never being accepted in their own country.
>>What a pathetic apology. He was wrong about what? What did Palin correctly predict?<<
She stood up and said clearly, openly and without reservation just exactly what Obama would do and how he would do it. She said that he had socialistic if not Marxist views, that wealth would be taken away and redistributed and that he would create a new economic dependent class.

And here we are in Obamas second term, and who could argue now that Sarah didnt have it right all along? Not only was Sarah dead-on the mark, it is shocking to see just how far along this radical agenda has evolved. It would be an understatement to say that Sarah most likely understated her case. I would guess she is more surprised then I at what has transpired thus far.
Now all you need to do is to get someone to read it to you.
See post #12.
>>I agree with you. Whomever Charles Fredericks is he doesnt seem to express himself very well. I have no idea what he is trying to say.<<
Another 1998 who can’t read. Simply amazing.
To make proper amends: set yourself on fire in front of the White House.
Have a great day!
You were late with wisdom then; you should have shutup, since your attempt at credibility now means nothing.
Exhibitionism then, exhibitionism now!
Thanks for the information.
Sarah Palin , you going to run , ball's in your court?:
>>Have a great day!<<
You’re welcome. It just got better.
I told a friend, his views on abortion were an abomination, and his views appeared to favor socialism and Marxism. I sometimes referred to him from then on as Obamanation.
She wouldn't vote for McCain, but didn't vote for Obama either. I kept telling her that she should look at it not as a vote for McCain, but a vote against Obamanation. She stayed home anyways.
They say it takes a big man to admit hes wrong, but we welcome you back into the fold. Sarah’s always been right just some don’t want to listen for whatever reason.
>>Get on a Samsung Nexus Galaxy...<<
Why would I want to to that? Then I would be writing stupid things like...
“What a pathetic apology. He was wrong about what? What did Palin correctly predict?”
I’m just yanking your chain because you make it so easy.
Actually, I knew what he was talking about without even clicking on the link. I’m smart that way.
Are you a Palin hater?
Ping: Someone woke up.
Rooster sucking traitors like Boehner are making it much worse.
Yes, Sarah warned us, and some listened. I dont agree with her all the time, but what is intriguing is that she somehow knew. How, I ask? Not sure, but she knew, and that is fact. Maybe I should have listened.Maybe. It isnt easy admitting a public error. But you made a good effort.
Do you know if they ever found out who torched Palin’s church?
Maybe she did 30 minutes of research of available information on the internet like a lot of us here did.
I already have one and she's a keeper.
LOOKS LIKE CHAS DONE GOT himself a copy of ‘GOING ROGUE’...
AND as anybody with half a brain became a SARAH jihadi...which is par for the course.....
No, I don't live in the Mat-Su area so I don't follow the news from there. I just happened to stumble on this editorial letter when looking for something else.
I was thinking this today.
When (not if) those around me who voted proudly for Obama tell me I was right.
I’m simply going to say, “don’t talk to me” and turn away in disgust.
