DNC Reaction to Palin Resignation
CNN Political Ticker ^ | July 3, 2009 | CNN Political Ticker

Posted on 07/03/2009 1:59:46 PM PDT by RangerM

"Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can't handle the job now that her popularity has dimmed and oil revenues are down. Either way – her decision to abandon her post and the people of Alaska who elected her continues a pattern of bizarre behavior that more than anything else may explain the decision she made today."

Bullsh*t!!!! The Commie DemocRATS have caused the loss of millions of dollars and precious time with their bogus "ethics" investigations of Governor Palin in their quest to win an opportunity to kiss Barack the Kenyan's feet.

“Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions...”

The DNC, MSM, and their ilk have been continuously braying that Palin is unfit to be Governor — yet, they want us to believe that not running for the office again is leaving Alaskans “high and dry”. It's just not logical, Captain.

“These people really are evil.”

and petty and classless. It is not going to go over very well for them to have put out such a statement. Expect the generic congressional polls to tip even more in the republicans favor by next week.

Americans don’t like these kind of petty ‘official’ statements coming from political parties. Mark my word.

Their smarmy response speaks for itself! Lowest form of politics always comes from the dnc.
I am sure their beloved leader is mad as hell right now that she is stealing the headlines and leaving a question as to her plans.
hahaha!! Good girl, Sarah...make this so-called potus sweat! Stalk him throughout his treasonous adventure and hold him to account. Goodness knows no one else is doing anything to stop this evil leader!!
Best of luck and God bless her and her family!!

Great point. And 0bama left his seat in total play, in the struggle that ensnared Blagoevich. Sarah’s replacement is known, the transition is handled properly and orderly, and that’s that.

But we should expect nothing less than this kind of third-grade spin from the state-run media.

I wonder if the Dems are available to write my eulogy.

And it came to pass in the year 2009 that the President of the United State Barack Hussein Obama was exposed as having been born in Kenya. As he tried to fight the constitution he planned to run again but found out that was not eligible to run because lawmakers had tightened up the reigns in regards to qualifying to run for President. With Obama's Marxist plan to be President for life thwarted, (a plan in cahoots with Castro, Chavez and the other Marxist leaders), Sarah Palin runs for office and becomes the next President of the United States.

Or when Bill Clinton resigned the Governor's office early AFTER he had promised the people of Arkansas that he would serve out his full term.

The article said — “Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can’t handle the job now that her popularity has dimmed and oil revenues are down.

Well, she made it clear that she wasn’t leaving them high and dry, but enabling the people of Alaska to have a “governor” that wouldn’t be tied up doing things that had nothing to do with helping Alaska. And she said that she was leaving Alaska in the capable hands of the Lt. Governor (soon to be Governor).

And also, she said she was doing this as a “team member” and with the goal of the game in mind and not something for herself.

I know that the DNC is unfamiliar with thinking like this... LOL...

Each time she gets out of bed they have a talking point. She is a talking point to those morons. That's what they do. They Talk. That's all they do. For that we give them the keys to the kingdom and all the money we'll ever have. When's it going to end?

This DNC response is classless and mean-spirited. I guess, in other words, it’s in keeping with the Democrats.

Not one of the scumballs who contributed to the constant attacks on Sarah and/or this sleazy response could handle a fraction of the pressure that Sarah has endured.

She will now be able to go on the road throughout the country in 2010 campaigning full time on behalf of Rep candidates, building up her political IOUs when she goes for the Presidency in 2012. Essentially, she is constructing her national political organization.

The speech came on eve of “Independence Day” (no accident), and if you listen to Palin’s words you will get the answers and you are right, but there is more...here is my first comment about it on another thread:

Palin’s Dereliction of Duty
Friday, July 03, 2009 5:44:07 PM · 110 of 110
Kackikat to Pining_4_TX
The problem is too many conservatives have forgotten what it means to “change the rules of engagement”. In football it’s called “the best defense is a great offense”. Sarah has been on the defensive with all the lawsuits/ethics complaints sucking up AK taxpayer dollars, and her staff’s time. She has resigned to change the “rules of engagement” from defense to offense. I love it!

2010 is coming, and “offesive engagement” is coming for the likes of Dodd, Pelosi, Reid and people like them. Sarah said nothing about running for President, but she did say she would fight for freeom, national security and our country...think about it. She will be free to campaign for the opposing candidate of the jacka$$es we all want out of office. What better place to start, and without being accused of abdicating her duties as governor while doing so.

In the meantime she can write a book, spend time with family and plot strategy...and with all the current ethics complaints thrown out, this stepping down will put her out of the line of fire until the real war heats up. God bless Palin, and we now have a chance in 2010 to end the problems in Congress. Palin draws huge crowds, and that is what many new candidates will need. It isn’t about herself, it’s about stopping the costs to AK, and helping America. It is no accident it was stated on the eve of Independence Day...go Sarah!

I love this!! Obama must be wondering what she is up to.

And for all the critics out there...

Bill Clinton did not complete his last term as governor, which he had promised he would do.

Barack Obama was a do-nothing senator, who used his office (and the people of Illinois) as a springboard to the presidency. He would have been more honest if he would have stepped down.

I can’t for the life of me think how quitting your current job, before it’s completed, shows that you are ready to be President of the United States.

This is the first thing Palin has done that has me questioning. I know a lot of people have been saying she wasn’t ready, but I didn’t buy it. I still don’t, but I can’t imagine trying to fight those people now.

Brian Moran resigned his house of delegates seat before his term, so he could run for Governor, and we rightly attacked him for being a quitter. I don’t know how this doesn’t come out the same way.

But I’m sure a lot of people here who would call anybody else a quitter will explain why this is so different. Problem is, after a while, the average folks start asking why you have to explain things all the time.

First Sanford’s cheating, and now Palin’s resigning. We are running out of conservatives.
