Posted on 07/28/2011 8:54:06 PM PDT by STARWISE
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin weighed in on the debt ceiling debate on social media just hours before a key House vote. (Twitter)
In a post on her Facebook page from "proverbial politico flyover country," the former Alaska governor reprinted a letter she sent to newly elected members last fall, emphasizing the need to "rein in out-of-control government spending" and "check the growth of spending on our entitlement programs."
"I respectfully ask these GOP Freshman to re-read this letter and remember us 'little people' who believed in them, donated to their campaigns, spent hours tirelessly volunteering for them, and trusted them with our votes. This new wave of public servants may recall that they were sent to D.C. for such a time as this," Palin wrote.

Barack Obama: 0
Congressional Repubics: 0
Tea Party Holdouts: 1
Sarah Palin: Uh, I stopped counting somewhere around 100 or so.
Im gonna be pissed if she doesn’t run.
Did she also send McCain a nice thank you note.
Her posting today is getting big coverage. Amazing what a FB posting did in such a short period of time. I knew she would respond today or tomorrow, but had no idea it would make such an impact. Way to go Palin and thank you so much tea partiers in Congress.
The vote fell flat by a narrow margin didn’t it?
How long do they have to wrestle this vote?
How does this make Sarah look better?
Boehner loses? Democrap Party +1, Tea Party crucified by Media 0, and Obama +10. Welcome to Amerika.
I don’t want her to run. She’s so good in this tag team role, let someone else run and let Sarah keep attacking from the sideline.
Boehner’s plan is a joke, and everyone supporting it is a joke. This isn’t a game, in the end. This is about America’s future. The Tea Party Holdouts have to beat the Congressional Repubics to win this one for America’s future. Take it beyond August 2nd. Let’s show our cards and let them show theirs. they got nothin’. Count on it.
T”he vote fell flat by a narrow margin didnt it?”
A vote wasn’t taken. The weeper and his pet weasel eric couldn’t whip the votes. So they didn’t vote. They issued some spin about taking the time to tweak the bill.
“How long do they have to wrestle this vote?”
Until the weeper and his pet weasel give it up.
“How does this make Sarah look better?”
The momentum was going the weeper’s way. Sarah tweets and a couple hours later, they cancel the vote. She spoke, the conservatives in the House listened, and this bill may/will go down in flames tomorrow.
They leftmedia can run all the polls they want, it’ll be obvious as to who called the shots.
You don’t get it. “They” will never show their cards. They don’t have to. And they know it. They will simply siphon off enough soft pubbies to pass some Dem-inspired bill to “save the country” at the last hour in the act of destroying it, and enable Obama to take the credit, with the help of Pravda, so that he can(shudder here) win re-election. America’s future? What America? Welcome to Amerika.
Way to go Palin and thank you so much tea partiers in Congress.
All 25 of them. Where were the rest of them? This plan will pass but a lot of the Conservatives got played by Bonehead today and will be played by Dingy Harry Tomorrow or Monday when he sends it back to the house...watered down. What are they gonna do then?
Her timing was perfect!
You’ve given up.
Everyone who has given up needs to get out of the way.
I’m not convinced yet. We need to do anything we can to stop this from going down, and getting a decent plan out of this. If you think Boehner’s plan is acceptable, I mean that’s just foolish.
Truth be told, I am weary of the spectacle.
I want Obama on the hot seat.
