Huge crowds expected for McCain-Palin event
The East Valley Tribune, Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2010-03-23 | Mike Sakal

Posted on 03/23/2010 8:12:27 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Campaign staff and volunteers of Sen. John McCain and his former vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin are preparing for the pair’s appearance at Mesa’s Dobson High School on Saturday.

A spokesman for the camp offered a bit of advice for those wanting to get in: “Folks should get there early,” said Brian Rogers, McCain’s communications director.The event is free, on a first-come, first-served basis and does not require a ticket.

(snip)

Also speaking at a rally in Tucson on Friday, the appearances are McCain and Palin’s first ones together at a public event since their concession speech in the 2008 presidential race.

Their appearance comes just four days after President Barack Obama signed a $938 billion health care reform bill. McCain has been an outspoken critic of the bill and plans to lead an effort to repeal it.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, is stumping for McCain. She will speak about McCain’s values and what she learned from him during their 2008 presidential campaign and through his battles against his own party line, Rogers said.

McCain will speak about what he appreciates in Palin’s leadership, and speak out against what he believes are misguided priorities in the White House including government overspending, his concerns for the 17 percent unemployment rate in Arizona and the state’s home foreclosure problem as 48 percent of homeowners in Arizona are under water, according to Rogers.

No , Republicans didn’t give us big government the media lied and said they did but it was democrats who with a total media monopoly built this big government in the previous 100 years before 1994 when Republicans in 1994 finally gained a bare majority.

The media slandered Republicans every second of every single day for 8 years from thousands of media outlets, every newspaper, every TV in every American’s living room.

The trouble is most government educated people and liberals like you rabscuttle don’t have the background to understand what the media did to them(brainwashed them) and how the media slandered republicans.

For example the media called “spending “ for 2 wars ,the media made that out to be “government spending” or “Republicans increasing government spending”

1. spending for 2 wars may show an increase in the dollar value but that was not really “republicans increasing government spending” or “republicans growing government” and the media used this to turn conservatives against the GOP

2.Ditto for inflation. Inflation does not equal increases in government spending but the media used the dollar value to say “Republicans greatly increasing government spending”
when the government hadn’t grown but just the value of the dollar had decreased so something cost 2 trillion after 10 years instead of 1 trillion but it was the same size. But the media went crazy “oh look at that Bush increased government spending (government size) by $1 trillion dollars in 8 years” blah blah blah more lies. yet most people just see that and don’t know the media is not taking inflation, and spending for wars, and population growth into account just to make Republicans out to be the party of big government so that conservatives would turn against the GOP>

ok i have about 3 to 100 other explanations about what the media was doing but of course brainwashed people won’t believe reason or don’t understand how inflation , wars etc does not equal government growing.

You sound just like Lindsey Graham.

If Lindsey Graham has ever called Ron Paul and his cult "enemies within" then I'll accept that as a compliment. Otherwise, I'll just say that Lindsey also lives in your head 2/7 rent free and perhaps you fantasize about him.

No , Republicans didn’t give us big government the media lied

Medicare Part D

Amnesty

Restrictions on free speech

Nation-building

Expansion of foreign aid to Africa

Cap-and-tax

No Child Left Behind

All of the above were signature Republican initiatives, in many cases co-sponsored with Democrats.

Shall I continue?

I took a look at the ugly keywords and added three or four decent words.

Funny you should mention "decent words"... /g

I've been watching these threads with a growing sense of amusement at the single-minded obsessiveness of the relatively small cadre of Freepers who keep posting them and regurgitating the same tired talking points over and over and over.

For me they've come to have an almost surreal "theater of the absurd" air about them that borders on erotic obsession. It's almost as if some members of that hardcore cadre of posters are indulging in an online form of exhibitionist self-gratification... /g

Well stated! It sails right by the posters of such, but you see it! Juvenile antics more suited to a high school crowd. Maybe in the "boys" locker room, huh? (giggle-giggle) LOL.

I know I added PalinRocks; Sarah2012; PalinPower; = decent keywords.

A handful of things in 12 years all you got is that false spin? Try the literally thousands of government agencies and government programs the Democrats gave us to create this big government. I see you say nothing bad about democrats. lets see if you can ok?

1.Republicans stopped Amnesty for illegals for the 12 years they held a bare majority.FACT.Democrats will give us your Amnesty for 30 million illegals and their families in the 3rd world and so on. and they will do it very soon. can you deny that?

2 Republicans stopped Government socialist healthcare from BJ Clinton and democrats for 12 years Republicans held a bar majority. Democrats just gave us socialist government healthcare. you must be proud of your democrats huh. no difference between the parties? give me a break you liberal.

3.as in 1 and 2 ditto for the fairness doctrine and net neutrality which Republicans never gave us. democrats with net neutrality will censor the Internet and with the fairness doctrine talk radio. so democrats will take freedom of speech away completely .Republicans never did that.
4.Republicans cut taxes. if they are for big government why cut taxes?Democrats have and will raise taxes (vat tax is coming, cap gains tax etc.)
5.Republicans gave us 2 conservative justices on the Supreme court.
6.R's and Bush Took war to Islam, the Bush doctrine.
7.Republicans and Bush never signed on to kyoto(global warming hoax).
many more this is just off the top of my head.

If medicare part d was so big why do I know seniors that have private insurance on top of medicare and still pay a lot for prescriptions, they introduced that to allow private competition into medicare.

Bush's appointment of 2 ultra conservative justices allowed the supreme court to not only wipe out your “restrictions on free speech/mcain fiengold” but 100 years of similar older previous laws in one fell swoop. Thank you Bush!

There was no Amnesty .Republicans stopped that you liar.
Are you livingin an alternate universe where Amnesty was giving to 30 million illegals? you lost all credibility with that one.

However, although I can’t recall a specific Free Republic prohibition of it, excessively “flogging one’s meme” in public seems to push the boundary of decency and good manners... /g

Let me answer your post with a thoughtful response.

I went along with practical Republican politics for nearly 20 years now. I bought the reasoning that nothing is perfect, and that compromises had to be made.

One problem with that, though; look at the end result. A complete, unmitigated disaster, with the USA having been turned into another Eurostate. Epic failure, if one is faithful to logic and conservative philosophy.

I continued to practice practical politics during 2008 and was enthusiastic about Sarah Palin’s emergence and wild popularity.

Fast forward to 2010. The landscape has changed. Obama is underwater in the polls and there is no reason to be judicial, practical, or compromising in order to get elected. Anyone espousing national financial prudence has a big advantage in election contests throughout the country, with some victories already in blue states.

That is why Sarah Palin has become a disappointment to some of her formerly enthusiastic supporters. Does the woman not realize that this is not 2008? Is loyalty to a past associate more important that consistency with bedrock principles? How is hanging with John McCain good principle? It isn’t even good realpolitik, given that radically different environment that could be fostered with a little leadership.

I got criticized by another FReeper on a different topic thread for being so negative about prospects for real, effective change. While I didn’t state it then, in the back of my mind was the waffling (or whatever anybody wants to call it) by a person that we thought was true to the cause 24/7/365. Without exception. When things look the bleakest, to have Sarah go wobbly and actually fight another bona fide conservative is depressing. While liberals are assaulting this country tooth and nail, our tiger chose to wear oven mitts.

Does any of this register, FRiend?

Try the literally thousands of government agencies and government programs the Democrats gave us to create this big government.

Homeland Security was a Republican creation.

So was EPA.

The OMB, NCUA, and NOAA were also Republican creations.

Shall I keep digging?

and they will do it very soon. can you deny that?

With the help of Republican Lindsey Graham. Do you deny that he is a chief sponsor of the proposed Schumer-Graham immigration bill?

3.as in 1 and 2 ditto for the fairness doctrine and net neutrality which Republicans never gave us. democrats with net neutrality will censor the Internet and with the fairness doctrine talk radio. so democrats will take freedom of speech away completely .Republicans never did that.

The McCain-Feingold bill muzzled non-liberal organizations, thereby allowing progressives to gain an advantage at the ballot box.

4.Republicans cut taxes. if they are for big government why cut taxes?Democrats have and will raise taxes (vat tax is coming, cap gains tax etc.)

No, they only defer taxes. Deficit spending is still a tax increase, just a deferred one, since borrowed funds must eventually be paid off by a future generation of Americans (who are essentially being taxed without representation, something that the Founders fought against over two centuries ago).

6.R's and Bush Took war to Islam, the Bush doctrine.

Saying that all of Islam is responsible for the events of September 11 is just as absurd as saying that all of Christianity is responsible for the actions of the members of Westboro Baptist Church.

7.Republicans and Bush never signed on to kyoto(global warming hoax).

No, just McCain and Warner (both Republicans) were chief sponsors of several of the original cap-and-trade bills (i.e., they signed on the global warming hoax).

If medicare part d was so big why do I know seniors that have private insurance on top of medicare and still pay a lot for prescriptions, they introduced that to allow private competition into medicare.

Medicare Part D is about as free market or conservative as Romneycare.

Furthermore, if it is in fact conservative, why does it increase the long-term Federal deficit (i.e., create a deferred tax increase)?

Furthermore, if it is in fact conservative, why does it cement the dependence of Americans upon Medicare, one of LBJ's Great Society boondoggles?

There was no Amnesty .Republicans stopped that you liar.

I'm sorry. I must have missed the part where a very prominent Republican was a chief sponsor of the amnesty bills, and his protege is a chief sponsor of those bills' newest incarnation in the present Congress.

I also must have missed the part where the Republican chief executive was pushing hard for those very same amnesty bills.

“There was no Amnesty “

Not for lack of effort from the GOP leadership.

“Republicans stopped Government socialist healthcare from BJ Clinton and democrats for 12 years Republicans held a bar majority”

Like Medicare Part D?

“if they are for big government why cut taxes?”

Why tax when you can borrow?

“Republicans gave us 2 conservative justices on the Supreme court.”

No, Republicans gave us one. The last one we had to scream about.

“Bush’s appointment of 2 ultra conservative justices allowed the supreme court to not only wipe out your “restrictions on free speech/mcain fiengold” but 100 years of similar older previous laws in one fell swoop. Thank you Bush!”

If only he’d held to his oath of office and not signed the damn thing in the first place. I guess that was too much to ask for.

“If medicare part d was so big why do I know seniors that have private insurance on top of medicare and still pay a lot for prescriptions, they introduced that to allow private competition into medicare.”

Medicare Part D is an unfunded liability of $18 trillion dollars on top of Medicare itself.

Talk about spin. You sound like Baghdad Bob.

BS, EPA was created in the 1970’s when democrats had a majority in Congress.

Democrats had a majority for 60 years before 1994 when Republicans finally took “power”( a bare majority). In that
time in those 60 years Democrats created many thousands of government agencies and programs, the big
government we know today, NONE of which republicans created.
I have links that show Bush abolished hundreds of agencies and government programs.

In addition Bush cut hundreds of government programs and agencies which more than offset the handful of things you claim which
most of that is before 1994 and Homeland security was for national security so conservatives were
for that.

no that’s not a fact.

If Bush grew the government than show how Bush grew the number of government employees in relation to population.

you are brainwashed by the liberal media. the media fooled you . it wasn’t government growth but inflation, 2 wars ,military speding ,population growth.

how does it feel to be the puppet of liberals/marxists/democrats who control the media?

Quit trying to scapegoat Democrats for Republican treachery.

Quote:

According to the publication "The Guardian: Origins of the EPA," President Nixon declared his intention to establish the Environmental Protection Agency with Reorganization Plan Number 3, dated July 9, 1970. Reorganization Plan Number 3 can be found in the Congressional Record, Vol 116, H 6523 (91st Congress, 2nd Session).

Which ones?

Bush nor Republicans did not grow the government.

If they did then show the numbers of government workers in relation to population before Bush and after Bush.And show a significant increase ok ? if you can’t then you make a fool of yourself .and that goes for the rest of you brainwashed puppets of the media who don’t understand that inflation is not government growth , that military spending for 2 wars is not government growth and so on.

You are so blinded by wanting to hate the GOP, the one thing that could stop the democrat/Marxists from turning the U.S. into a socialist state. wel enjoy living in a socialist state becaus you chose to not vote Republican or stayed home or bashed Republicans. just fyi all peoples in every fully socialist state have been starving skeletons and slaves of the government. Look up the killing fields of Cambodia to see what you have done with your lies.

“BS, EPA was created in the 1970’s when democrats had a majority in Congress.”

EPA was created by Richard Nixon, Republican.

“NONE of which republicans created.”

So, they opposed every single big government program? Really? In the 1935 Social Security vote, 16 Republican senators said “yay” and only 4 said “nay” (5 abstained). It was better on Medicare, but 13 voted “yea” on it anyway.

“I have links that show Bush abolished hundreds of agencies and government programs.”

He created quite a bit too.

“Homeland security was for national security so conservatives were
for that.”

Smart conservatives realized “Homeland Security” (an Orwellian name if there ever was one) was an unnecessary rearrangement of the Titanic’s deck chairs. It wasted BILLIONS.

One man does not equal all Republicans get it?

It was more than just one man.

McCain, Bush, Giuliani, Huckabee, Romney, and Graham were all pro-illegals.

Fine with me, lady. However, we’ll just judge your claims to vast experience and knowledge accordingly.

Whenever I want to talk to you, I will ping you or rely to your ping, punk PAULTARD, and FYI, “I” didn’t pile any debt onto your generation. I have never lived on the government dole and I’m certain I’ve paid my way and countless others more than you ever will if you live to be one hundred, so buzz off and whine to someone who might give a damn about poor miserable you because I sure don’t.

And Jon Kyl. And I'm sure there are a few others.

And I want them all defeated in their next elections.

Conservatives support Sarah Palin

Really? Which ones would they be? The McCain Conversatives? The Lindsey Graham conservatives?

I'm new at the alter of Divine Sarah worship, so I haven't figured out all the rules (I have learned that its NOT really a RINO even if Sarah supports it ... then its a SARAH-CONSERVATIVE!)

So what you prove what I said the EPA was created in the 1970’s when Democrats had a majority in Congress.

And it was proposed and championed by the Republican Nixon before Congress jumped in on the action.

Bush nor Republicans did not grow the government.

Under Bush, Federal Spending Increases at Fastest Rate in 30 Years

If they did then show the numbers of government workers in relation to population before Bush and after Bush.And show a significant increase ok ?

Bush and the Republicans in Congress added trillions to the Federal deficit. And that's not counting long-term liabilities created by programs such as Medicare Part D. Now, if that's not growth of government, then I don't know what is.

wel enjoy living in a socialist state becaus you chose to not vote Republican or stayed home or bashed Republicans.

Aw, blame the voter for your own incompetence.

I don’t know of any Sarah Palin supporters who support McCain or Lindsey Graham, but perhaps you can name them for me and all of us.

The Graham-Schumer bill is co-sponsored by a Republican.

The Graham-Schumer bill is largely a repeat of a previous bill sponsored by another Republican, one John McCain.
