Sarah Palin Rips Michelle Obama: ‘Are We Just A Bunch Of Numbskulls?’
Mediaite ^ | January 11, 2012 | James Crugnale

Posted on 01/11/2012 10:16:39 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Appearing on Fox News’ Hannity, Sarah Palin reacted in disgust to a clip from Gayle King‘s interview with First Lady Michelle Obama, where she said Americans were “confused” about how much had been accomplished by the President. “Oh, Lord. Oh, Lord — what are we just a bunch of numbskulls out here in the heartland of America?” Palin exclaimed incredulously. “Just a bunch of numbskulls who can’t read the unemployment numbers and see that 5 trillion dollars in new debt later under her husband, President Obama. 5 trillion dollars more! And we have fewer jobs today than we had before we took over, but, no, we’re numbskulls out here and we don’t know what the numbers actually represent!”

“We’re not that bright!” added Hannity, who later asked if the former Alaska Governor was worried Republicans wouldn’t be able to come together to defeat President Obama.

“You know why people are so concerned, two to one, about a second term for President Obama?” Palin questioned. “We understand with now — 15, 16 trillion dollars in debt, there’s not enough money in the world to pay back what it is that we have borrowed for today’s wants and needs and yet we’re going to try to hand this bill to our kids and grandkids. That makes us less safe and secure as a nation and when you see the turmoil going around this world and now, more than ever, America needs that strong military, we shouldn’t be looking first at cutting military funding. We should be looking at the entitlement programs that need reform and looking at frivolous expenditures our bureaucracies are still engaged in.”

Sounded like a short “whistlestop” campaign speech, didn’t it?

Comments, Vet??? Here goes. My prediction- she’ll be Newt’s Sec of Energy- will be campaigning in SC.

"frivolous expenditures our bureaucracies are still engaged in.”

$4 million dollar tax payer Hawaiian vacation?

No problem. We can always cut the military.

If you see the interview, Sarah was going for a Facepalm when Hannity played the Moochelle clip. It was hilarious.

Sarah Palin responded with light speed and crushed the Obamas. Imagine if she were doing this in a debate with Zer0. He would have been smashed like a bug!

Sarah virtually said that Michelle is totally out of touch with the reality of this devastating economy on Americans. Michelle is living in a dream world on the Unicorn Farm. I was hoping that Sarah would have tied it all up with the expensive designer clothes and the other expensive changes she has made in the White House while the citizens of America were living on dog XXXX. That issue may all come up soon if Michelle takes the bait. Sarah is fishing for Michelle and she knows how to land her catch.

The facepalm was perfect and hilarious. Even MO looked like she didn’t believe what she herself was saying.

That being said - I work with some highly intelligent people and heard one of them today telling a co-worker that Hillary will step in as VP and then Hillary villl be POTUS for 8 years. In all seriousness.

I don’t get it.

The look on Sarah’s face was PRICELESS. She looked like she was going to vomit when she heard Michelle talk, I look the same way whenever I see that Marxist lying her ass off on TV. Sarah knocked it out of the park!

Why hasn’t she followed her husband’s lead and wise judgment — and also endorsed Newt is the real question.

Unless her Fox contract forbids her to.

If Obama thinks he has a tight race on his hands (i.e. no Willard to crush) then Hillary with unbelievable high national favorability numbers for some reason will DEFINITELY replace Biden who has said for 20 years that his dream job was Sec of State.

It’s an easy no-brainer for Obama.

I can’t look at her or listen to her anymore. It’s like a girl I knew once who was sweet, loving, and beautiful and then one day casually tossed her little dog out a car window on the highway because it had become inconvenient. It really didn’t matter how ‘perfect’ she was, after that.

The brilliant “join date” argument? Your later joining date doesn’t get anybody too warm and fuzzy about you, either, peaches.

Nearly FIFTY THOUSAND voted for Obama in the NH primary Tuesday...of course; we now have it ON TAPE (thanks, James O'Keefe) how easy it is to vote for the dead in NH...hell; anyone can vote there, since the clerks brag that you don't need ID. How many of those votes for Ron Paul were really legit?

Unless someone pursues it; we'll never know. 'Live Free or Die'...

It's possible to love someone and yet be very disappointed by them.

If she ran third party I would still vote for her. She talks the talk, and I love what she says. But when it's time to walk, she basically walked away at a time when we needed her the most. I can't get my head around that. If that's a crime, then there are a hell of a lot of criminals.

Hilary has those numbers because the majority of Americans are NUMBSKULS when it comes to politics and what is really going on in this country

If she ran third party, then she would be trying to get Barry elected again, and that is what would happen.

You would need such an overwhelming response for a third party candidate to win that it would be part revolution and part miracle. Meanwhile we have for a so called "choice" either the Romney sock puppet or the Obama marionette, both run by the same liberal interests puppeteers, no matter the "R" or "D" next to their names. This is not a "choice" by my commonsense definition of the word. The conservative on Romney is so thin it's electroplated.

Third party may be a lost cause, but if our only choices are Romney and Obama, the cause is already lost...perhaps permanently. You can't pretend that the same interests that gave us the illusory "choice" in 2008 aren't pulling the same fast one in 2012.

Crying shame the statements are not coming from a candidate.

As such, statements come from just another paid pundit.

Also a shame that these statements weren't made on the other msm outlets.

And I don't need anyone to tell me what a complete waste of oxygen the first pig is.

I haven’t posted a thing about any thoughts not my own, everyone can see it...apparently when you lose it’s join date first, conspiracy theory when that fails...kinda lame and ignorant, to be perfectly honest with you.
