Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Hits David Gregoryís Best Curveball Out Of the Yard
Posted on 05/22/2011 1:29:12 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Newt Gingrich got one thing magnificently right last week. He called Barack Obama The Food Stamp President. Newts old; a bit behind the times. It should have been The EBT-Card President. Still, the shoe fits, and Obama should get stuck wearing it in November 2012.
The American Left, with its typical intellectual brilliance, assumed that Newt Gingrich only called Barack Obama President Food Stamp because he was black. Newt would have called a white president Captain Safety-Net instead. I remember all the times Ronald Reagan went around thanking Jimmy Carter for all the social welfare he handed out in the late 1970s. Gingrich was clearly and obviously RAAAAACIST!
David Gregory interviewed Gingrich and furrowed his eyebrows in deep and sober concern over Gingrichs use of coded language. His potential post to the Stuff Leftist White People Like website follows below.
You gave a speech in Georgia with language a lot of people could be coded racially tinged language, calling the president, the first black president, the food stamp president.
While I typically would classify Sarah Palins philosophical beliefs as American Pragmatism and Reality Television, she can slyly go Postmodern on leftist twits with the best in the business. She Deconstructs the implicit favoritism towards those of The Caucasian Persuasion underpinning Gregorys worldview quite exquisitely below.
Well, talk about racism that was a racist-tinged question from David Gregory, Palin declared. He made it sound like that if youre black youre on food stamps and the president is referring to you being on food stamps. I think thats racist.
(HT: The Daily Caller)
And then, God Bless her, Sarah Palin did something unique. She not only pointed out that David Gregory is your typical bigoted Limousine Liberal, a veritable Ethanol Ethnocentrist. She suggests a solution for the problem that the David Gregorys, who infest the so-called journalistic profession, present. Sarah raves on below.
Why do we let the press, the media personalities get away with such? . The real issue is we have 40-something million Americans on food stamps. You know why? Because we dont have a robust economy . because government has overreached, overtaxed and overspent and got us in debt and there isnt enough private sector money out there creating jobs. That needs to be the focus, not allowing David Gregory to falsely charge Newt Gingrich as being a racist because hes making a statement of fact about how many people are on food stamps.
So how then, Governor Palin, do we reach this state of nirvana? She was totally on her game. She had that angle covered as well. More of Sarah Palin at her finest below.
Well, I think to start with, we ignore some of these reporters and their requests for us to comment and be interviewed, she said. We know going in to it what they are going to do to a conservative. So why participate in their game? Instead, candidates need to get their message out via new social media, via fair and balanced reporters who will just allow the facts to get out there. Dont participate in that goofy game that has been played now for too many years with the leftist lamestream media trying to twist a candidates words and intent and content of their statement.
(Daily Caller, ObCit).
This is why Palin is like kryptonite to these people. This interview alone is worth three columns of unsolicited gynecological theorizing from the detestable Andrew Sullivan. Tina Feys pager is going off as we speak. Governor Palin just cant be allowed to say such heretical things. Its as bad as Copernicus claiming the Earth went around the Sun.
Tedious, maundering leftists like David Gregory have probably watched two or three episodes of The Wire on HBO to learn about American urban life. They are as obsolete as The Model T. They have nothing to add to the national conversation and dogmatically report left-wing settled science. Sarah Palin was correct to recommend we avoid this type of Journalist the way hotel staff should avoid high-ranking officials with the IMF.
Many years ago, Rush said something like, "Liberals don't need to be understood; they don't need to be negotiated with; they just need to be defeated."
How long will all the unemployed, hungry, out-of-gas, former Obama supporters keep watching the MSM, being told they should "just get used to it"? I'm betting at least some of them will find a different medium with a different message, and Sarah will be on it.
I so want her to win the White House and show those reporters what a real press conference is all about!
She’ll be showing alot of people how things are done. With her no nonsense, not PC approach - just saying as it is and they can’t reign her in to control her - and all their trashing didn’t work either. I just love it - saying the truth is these times is nerve racking to the left. They thought that was abolished with their PC demands. How dare she go against the media - doesn’t she know they can make or break her! LOL!!
GO SARAH!! You are the real deal and one of us.
So, one need not say something downright racist in order to be criticized by the Left. Rather, it's enough that one's remarks be allegedly "coded" and "racially tinged."
Liberals are so sensitive!
“No wonder they want Myth, Tiny Tim or someone like that as our nominee.”
Assuming you mean Tiny Tim the singer, not the Dickens character... he’s not only dead, but he was a very religious conservative - so I don’t think he’d be batting for the other side. :-)
Sarah has my unalloyed support -- period, end of sentence, full stop.
America, since its founding, is based upon the principle that only "Barack The Magic Negro" can do this with the press!!!!
LMAO!!!! Hit 'em where they live, Sarah!
She should not have been defending Gingrich.
“”Assuming you mean Tiny Tim the singer...”
Ahhhh! Thanks for the clarification.
Have to thank Gregory.
He helped rid us of newtie.
“Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”

And a note to the HuffPo: You can claim fraud is 1%, but MA is not the only state without a clue.
That wasn’t much of a defense of Gingrich; much more an attack on the slimy tactics of the leftist media.
If we let them get away with calling Gingrich a racist — when he’s clearly not that, despite all his other slimy faults — then they get to call anyone a racist. Including Sarah.
I recently read an article that claimed the most recent college grads are rejecting 0bama in droves. http://news.yahoo.com/s/dailycaller/20110520/pl_dailycaller/recentcollegegradssouronobamasurveyssay
FACT: There are more white people on food stamps than blacks.
THEREFORE: David Gregory is a racist who also supports the abortion of black babies.
Sure she should’ve defended Newt. In defending him she defends the freedom of each of us to speak our mind without fear of the “thought police.” Just the kind of thing I would expect a true leader to do.
“Instead, candidates need to get their message out via new social media,”
It’s only logical that the ruling elite is going to target these very media. Watch them closely and carefully and don’t pay any attention to what they say they’re going to do or not do, but pay attention to what they really do. It’s like the magician. Don’t watch the hand that’s waving out in plain sight, but the hand that’s not very evident.
For instance, while they had all our eyes on the Gulf non-crisis, they were issuing a Presidential order to outlaw supplements. They haven’t enforced it yet.
“”just get used to it””
Yeah - in Communese, that’s “Make a sacrifice for the greater good.”
“I recently read an article that claimed the most recent college grads are rejecting 0bama in droves.”
They have their professors beat when it comes to intelligence!
The profs have tenure. The grads can't find a job. There are no atheists in foxholes :)
We have heard the lefts narrow minded racist garbage for too many decades. Enough is enough.
Shove their crap right back at them.
Delivery address invalid; return to sender.
She is right on the mark with this reasoning. It has always amazed me that folks, on all sides of the political spectrum, believe one 'has to' sit across from the liberal press and respond to their incessant duplicity. Even now we hear calls from some on the Right for Sarah Palin to 'correct herself' after being 'misaligned' by Katie Couric and Chris Wallace.
Nonsense! Palin, or any one seeking elected office, or just wishing to proffer their opinions, does not need the alphabet networks to do so. Actually, it's not wise, but rather naive, to think one can work with the liberal press and remain unscathed.
“The profs have tenure.”
In other words the professors are political whores and the graduates have had the aetheism shot out of them on the firing line.
Tina Fey’s pager! That’s a good one.
We need to remove him from the air.
We don't need his kind anymore. If you think so you are on the wrong board.
I say tear down Gregory and give his job to somebody else!
Liberals are as easily insulted as the Islamists. Do we see a pattern here?
She was not defending Newt, she was attacking the MSM and she did it brilliantly!
She wasn't even at bat. It's easy to "hit one out" from your computer.
Not defending Newt but, once agian, the Palin Protectorate goes overboard in their adoration.
Have you stopped beating your wife, yet.
“...but he was a very religious conservative...”
Tiny Tim the singer was a religious conservative? That’s amazing, I never knew that.
I mean, he got married on the Johnny Carson show, didn’t he? To Miss Vicky, right?
How is it that I still remember this stuff? (Assuming I DO remember it and haven’t gotten it all wrong!)
Her only bit of poor phrasing... Now she can be accused of only wanting to talk to FOX reporters, showing undue favoritism, and painting FOX as a mere mouthpiece for the GOP (as many already suggest).
Had she not been on a roll, she might have instead chosen the worlds "via credible and respected journalists who have not shown a history of bias", and avoided the potential out for the Lefties. Otherwise, unassailable.
You know I love Sarah Palin, but we need to deal with the fact that her “unfavorables” are through the roof.
Fairly or unfairly a lot of people do not like her.
She’s very polarizing, it’s love her or hate her.
Even people who SHOULD like her don’t (I’m thinking of someone I work with now).
I don’t know how she overcomes this and I’m not sure we want to risk nominating her and having her not be able to overcome it in the general election.
We don’t need another Barry Goldwater. Not right now.
How do you know that?
They will have a choice. Sarah or barry. America or bust.
He’s talking about Tim Pawlenty, NOT Tiny Tim lol
Her unfavorables are “high” because the press tells you that her unfavorables are high. If you listen to her with your own ears, and think for yourself, her unfavorables are not high. A national campaign takes away peoples ability to be swayed by anecdotal reporting.
Obviously, they seem to be in another Universe. There is very little logic for their blind support, considering all the negatives that Palin has created for herself.
It remains pointless to outline her great difficulties, they refuse to listen or see them for what they are regardless. It only invites personal attacks and some of them will go out of their way to harass anyone who does not support her.
So, I just support my candidate instead and occasionally point out why I do not support Palin. I DO NOT HATE HER, I simply do not want her for the Republican nomination, based on many of the same concerns you eloquently pointed out.
Many have failed to realize she's not only declared war on the Obama Admin, she's also continually done so with the LSM. And they will not be a part of her campaign.
If BO was the first 'internet' president, Sarah Palin will be the first to become President without the LSM.
I for one, will enjoy witnessing history- on many levels.
Ever heard of the psychosis called “Denial”?
