I was wrong, and I admit it
Mat-Sub Valley Frontiersman ^ | Nov. 29,2012 | Charles Fredericks

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 don’t 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.”

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 wait until Chuckie gets old and his wife gets old and Sarah's "Death Panels" refuse their necessary medical treatments.

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.

La-de-******-da Chuck....

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...
