Palin Advises Tea Partiers: 'Stop' Cars With Obama Bumper Stickers

Sarah Palin speaks at the 'Showdown in Searchlight' Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight, NV.
Sarah Palin, Tea Party Express
23 diggs Send to a friend!To email: Your Name: Your email:
Less than a week after a Nashville man was driven off the road because his car sported an Obama-Biden bumper sticker, Sarah Palin has called on Tea Partiers to stop drivers whose cars have a similar sticker.
Stumping on Saturday from Searchlight, NV -- Harry Reid's hometown -- Palin focused her rhetoric on the health care overhaul passed last week:
It's like that old bumper sticker that says, "Government: If you think our problems are bad, wait until you see our solutions."The crowd cheered. She went on:
Or that bumper sticker you see on the next Subaru driving by, an Obama bumper sticker. You should stop the driver and say, "So how is that hopey, changey thing working out for you?"Her comments come at a politically charged time, just a week after a picture on her Facebook page used crosshairs to identify Democrats who voted for health care reform

What is it about Sarah Palin's popularity that makes you wimps so scared? She's just a little woman from Alaska, and yet, all you big strong, so-called smart elists seem to be preoccupied with her. It's fascinating to watch you all play into her hands, since all you do is make her more popular with all the attention you give her.
Keep watching your mirrors while you're driving your Pious.......

"Keep watching your mirrors while you're driving your Pious.."
Is that a threat Steve? Are you the one playing into her instructions? This is a sick form of leadership that many seem to be exalting. This is the face and morals of the GOP? Are these GOP members that will be pulling me over, the same ones who will be carrying a loaded weapon, like in Livermore? Seems like its people who support this movement are the ones who are throwing it in my face, and now I have to fear for my safety when driving?

Did you perceive this as a threat? I'd call it being prudent.
Anyway, I'm too busy passing those little wind-up cars on the road to bother trying to pull one over and make them understand that our country is being dragged down to third world status by leftists.
The next president is going to have a lot of work to do to correct the damage currently being inflicted by this adminstration. And, once a Republican is in the Oval Office in 2012, you can bet he won't spend a lot of time blaiming Obama for everything he screwed up----

So true SteveP! You certainly didn't hear Pres Bush blaming Clinton for everything he screwed up!
Like the "longest period of peace-time economic expansion in American history, which included a balanced budget and a federal surplus . . . of $236B in 2000, the last full year of Clinton's presidency." And just to make matters worse, "Clinton left office with an approval rating at 66%, the highest end of office rating of any president since World War II." (wikipedia)
Wow, I can hardly wait for a Republican to take the White House and "correct" the "damage" . . . just like Pres Bush did!

Any glorification of the Clinton years should come with the asterisk note
* Clinton capitalized on the end of a recession and in large part the dot com boom, which was a huge bubble.
A bubble is something that is big and can expand rapidly, but has nothing but air inside.
And of course Bush bashing usually fails to note that we were attacked on 9-11-01, 8 months into his first term. In addition, the Bush tax cuts approved in a bipartisan fashion earlier that year. Despite the bust of the dot com bubble Web Link and the 9-11 attacks, unemployemnt was between 4-6% for GWBs first term and he was re-elected, primarily due to that economic policy the fact that we were not attacked again after 9-11

Hey, I thought I took it pretty easy on good ol' GWB, because . . .
if I'd talked about 9-11 I would have had to mention the thousands of lives lost and billions of dollars spent on war of choice in a country where al-quaida and bin laden weren't . . .
I wouldn't have talked about the tax cuts because, as we've discussed on another thread, from my perspective they did nothing to stimulate the economy . . .
and I would have said that the protection and growth of big business, credit card companies and wall street under the Bush administration directly fed into the economic meltdown at the end of his second term.
That's if I really wanted to discuss GWB. I was actually laughing at the statement that any Republican in office, whether it be 2010 or 2012, isn't spending ALL their time blaming Obama and everyone left of far right for all of our problems.
Perhaps if every politician, left, right, middle, Independent, Democrat, or Republican would spend a little, no make that a lot more time actually putting America and all Americans first, rather than political grandstanding for their perceived base, we'd actually have a government that worked for most of the people most of the time. Just a thought.
