Skip to comments.Exclusive–Palin: Flushing Critters and Retrieving 2014
Posted on 09/28/2013 7:27:56 AM PDT by upchuck
A simple fact is missing from all the media hysteria and political establishment temper tantrums over Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lees attempt to defund Obamacare.
Americans are getting slammed by Obamacare. Workforces are decimated as health care prices rise. Public opinion is on our side. If now was not the time to unite and fight it, when was? Those who are attacking Cruz and Lees efforts have forgotten how negotiations are won.
Use as an example the negotiations a governor of energy-rich Alaska must engage in with powerful multinational oil tycoons. In my experience, I found that the key to achieving success for the people youre elected to serve is to take a firm position, stand solid, and negotiate from there when the other guy is ready to take you seriously. You fight as hard as you can with whatever small edge youve got until the other guy respects you enough to wise up, sit down, and come to a mutually acceptable agreement. You get nothing at all if you preemptively surrender before the battle even commences.
Imagine how much stronger the GOPs hand would have been if every Republican (and those Democrats whove finally admitted Obamacares devastating flaws) stood together against cloture in order to prevent Harry Reid from cutting off debate and stripping Obamacare defunding from the bill?
But Republicans got nothing from squabbling with each other and denouncing the brave men who tried to do something.
Ted Cruz and Mike Lee fought to fulfill the campaign promises every Republican made, and their actions have been revelatory for all of us.
Unfortunately, the message of some politicians today seems to be: Whoopsie, seems I cant fulfill my election promises, but vote for me again and I promise to do what I promised last time.

Mrs. Palin, if the count of elected GOP person falls to two in the near future, I’d be just fine with that.
Open Season on RINOs in 2014!
Like I have said, no one, Not Sarah Palin, Not Ted Cruz can save us if we are not willing to save ourselves.
It is not "Their" Country to save, it is ours, it is We who must keep it.
The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance and if I may add: Eternal Involvement in our Nations Governance.
Does this flushing include McCain, Mrs. Palin?
When the heck was it ever wrong in America in complaining about cable service, bad government or anything else?
Oh yeah, ever since the hate crime laws and the fags who cannot be criticized.
MacCain needs to come out the closet, he is gayer than his fat daughter.
She’s right of course. Even if you don’t get everything you want you still get more by standing tall than you do by rolling over and whimpering.
Thanks Col Freeper. You got the pictures right on.
All of the Republican senators should have backed Senator Cruz’s and Senator Lee’s attempt. However, I’m not ready to write them all off because of it. Some went farther than simply voting for cloture. Some of them actually attacked Senator Cruz. That’s simply unacceptable. Make those conflicts private, senators! Don’t provide aid and comfort to our enemy on the Senate floor!
My senators are Inhofe and Coburn. Coburn voted for cloture. Inhofe did not. I know some (most) FReepers now believe Coburn is a traitor, but Coburn has always been a reliable vote against big government. Now I think Inhofe did the right thing by standing with Cruz, but I don’t agree that Coburn is a RINO and a traitor simply because he disagreed with Cruz (and Inhofe) and voted for cloture.
Sarah is right on. It seems almost impossible to convince Republicans to quit tearing down their own. The exception is RINOs that are really communists Democrats. The communists Democrats are socialists that work to control all economic and personal life and commit the control to their political power structure, King Obama. In other words Democrats are communists. We are controlled by this communists party and freedom does not exist in that environment.
Dems stick together. One has to hand it to them on that. They stick to the party line.
This is why IMO I think McPain IS of the other side. He sticks with the Democrat Party line.
Sarah is already right where she's needed, we need to cull the RINOs and GOP-E permanently before anything else, even if it means the permanent destruction of the Republican party.
Traitors will always cost us victory as long a they are among us.
She needs to cut the ties between Her and John Mcain. He is a politcal anchor around her sweet neck. We need to stomp these Rinos out of existence ASAP!!!. They are far worse than a Democrat simply becuase they are the enemy inside the gate.
Also true is we do need a plan or a discussion as how to go about it. We each are a small fish in a huge puddle; and there are already a few very big fish in this puddle with us.
We do need a leader or leaders for the organization, direction, and implementation of winning ideas in a coherent manner.
We have a few that inspire us and perhaps encourages us to do our damn est!!
Your comments make no sense.
A vote for cloture was a vote for funding Obamacare and for vastly expanding government.
It would be raw meat for us, maybe in private, but you get a sense her parents didn't raise her that way.
It hit me today, we are dealing with what I call "The East German Republicans"...
We have a bunch denying us Liberty and holding us back with a wall of Establishmentarianism.
We want to be freed from them.
We need Sarah Palin to say, "Mr Boehner and Mr McConnell tear down this Wall..."
And she has been saying that from the start: you don’t need a title to make a difference.
