“‘I leave it up to the government to make good decisions’”

It is said ‘ignorance is bliss’

You left out the "good part"
 
 
 
 

“I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for Americans,” Patrick, a Roman Catholic, told The Daily Caller Tuesday when asked about the controversy.

How bout a dumb political comment from a driver?

She drives a car. Who cares what she thinks about public policy?

If that’s an accurate and direct quote, Danica is as dumb as a post.

Kind of like Tony Bennett, speaking about Obama several months back:

“I think they ought to just let him do what he wants”.

Geez, we are in trouble, if the public is listening to these people.

"She drives a car. Who cares what she thinks about public policy?"

And so far, there's nothing special about her driving skills either. Her and Junior seem to be on the track for something other than their driving skills...

To this degree I fell sorry for her: There was no reason for them to ask her this, or for her to be expected to answer this. Reporters like to ask professional athletes questions like this, but it really isn’t fair or useful. Of course, her answer was terrible, but it’s hard to tell whether she really meant it that way, or whether she was caught like a dear in the headlights. She could have ruined her career with the wrong answer.

Vid at site. see for yourself. They did cut it off after

I don't know about that. So far her racing ability hasn't ruined her career. Then again, what career are we talking about? The racing career or the sexy promoter of stupid websites career?

airhead she is.

So Govt states that you Danica should never be able to have contraception, women must go in front of a board and prove their existence and why they should have a baby or have sex.
Now will she leave it to Govt to make those decisions, I think not.
ARF

Women like her give decent women a bad name, Govt, yes how about Govt states you cannot have your own money and they will spend it for you too.

What the hell is it with many women and more Govt or ignorance?

Agreed. She is a no talent hack. If she didn’t have boobs, she wouldn’t be racing cars at a high level for a living....red

Danica was a mid-pack Indy car driver, which does require a certain skill level. I’d like to see how she does in cup cars, especially on the road courses. That is a lot of car to hustle around those tracks.

Actually you left out her follow-on comment.

“The reason I leave it up to the Government is because it is really hard to for me to work the brakes AND clutch with an aspirin between my knees.”

the media have been putting her out as if she was the best driver the sport has ever seen and why ask this bimbo anyway?

Do they go around asking all drivers and then report on the one which gives them the answer they want.

You watch, the homo’s, the loon on the left have been infiltrating the church, the schools, colleges for years, they tried to take the boy scouts over but failed and the scouts stood firm and good for them.

They took the girl scouts over, now infesting the military and now it is NASCAR.

When will the muslim homosexual woman driver be turned out for the left?

“‘I leave it up to the government to make good decisions’”

OK, let’s take it a step further. If the government were to outlaw abortion would the feminists then say ‘I leave it up to the government to make good decisions’?

nail on head

Take the looks and boobs out and she’s nothing but sadly we;ll still have those dopes on our side which seem to have never dated a decent woman on their life backing her because of the boobs and looks instead of what she is supposed to be doing...

Besides who cares except the shallow never dated a decent woman care about what she thinks, she is there to drive and she isn’t that much either compared to other drivers out there.

"And so far, there's nothing special about her driving skills either."

After getting clipped in the qualifying race for the 500 and hitting the infield wall at over 175mph she came back the next day and won the pole position for the Nationwide 300 where 50 drivers were vying for 43 positions. But, she is showing (once again) that talent and brains don't always come in one package.

‘I leave it up to the government to make good decisions’ Just like 75% of the country(democrats and RINO republicans). Thankfully the founding fathers of America didn't have the same attitude as this moron. At this point I'd be astounded if a celebrity said, 'I leave it up to the US constitution to outline good decisions.'

Seems they have a knack for making people out to be more
than what they really are. Next thing is to give her a
Nobel peace prize. Oh yea, they already have the excuse
for her crash in the first lap of the race tonight.

you know what I would bet that 75%
5 of this country has no clue what the constitution is about.

I’m betting this airhead has no clue about the constitution and how the country was founded and how we came to have a constitution./.

So long as they have their burgers and beer on the 4th, get their freebies when they can off the govt and can vote as if the Presidential election is like the American idol then all is OK.

Ignorance must be bliss, infact I’m guessing that she has no clue about the war of 1812 either.

Going by those go daddy AD’s then I’m betting I’;m right too about her.

The hype about her is starting to make me ill. In 125 starts in Indy Car she won once. Last year in Bristol I had her on my scanner. Nothing was her fault, her language would make a sailor blush. She actually went up into the the other car but she was adament that he came down into her and spun her. Her recovery skills need to be polished. When you see her without the makeup and enhancements she is kind of common. I also could give a rat's a... what she thinks about anything.
