Sarah Palin Rips Michelle Obama: ‘Are We Just A Bunch Of Numbskulls?’
Meidaite ^ | 1/12/12 | James Crugnale

Posted on 01/12/2012 1:04:24 PM PST by Nachum

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.

I think fewer Americans every day, are confused as to what President “downgrade” Obama has accomplished.

The scales are falling from the eyes.

“O’s” record is indefinsible and nothing on earth justifies voting him another term.

But then...before being nominated to run for President, his record was indefensible and nothing on earth justified electing him to the WH the FIRST time!!!

I feel like I am living in a nightmare

If it comes down to a cat fight I hope Palin is packing heat. With her mass, reach and height advantage Moochelle would problably take her out four of five unarmed.

Whatever scales were going to fall, have fallen long ago. Attitudes are entrenched; so are political minds.

And the individual quoted in this text is nothing more (or less) than a paid political pundit (a "PPP" if you will) whose opinion may be placed in the same bucket as hannity, o'reilly, williams, morris, and the rest.

And most here on FR do not need anyone to tell them how incredibly worthless a use of oxygen the first pig is.

Is Sarah a paid analyst for FOX?

Or did they have an interview with her?

Todd has come out for Newt and I wonder if he was speaking on Sarah's behalf.

Sarah's endorsement will be huge for someone.

We have someone like Romney who like McCain, will never call BO out for being the Marxist that he is. He will continue to portray him as a “nice guy that’s just in over his head” It won’t work.

And the year has just begun. Things are unwinding faster and faster.

It is why I say Obama will not finish his term. I believe this will be a VERY bad year for the world and the US.

“I feel like I’m living in a nightmare!”

You and me, too. Barack Obama’s election in the first place was the beginning of this nightmare. - Now, wondering just what he has been playing at - the specter of the possibility that the Republican establishment, along with the Democrat open primary voters, are poised to hand us another “McCain” in the form of Mitt Romney, along with the 2012 election being handed to Obama on a silver platter - the nightmare continues.

And, if the Democrats can somehow get Hillary & Bill to run along with Obama in the VP slot; there are even some on FR who will get sucked into that because they forget how the Clintons abused power. I guess that would be Obama’s ace in the hole; though it’s hard to see it.

My bets on the little woman who’s put out five kids, lives at the edge of the tundra, and personally shot, caught, gutted, and dressed everything from salmon to caribou. Fat ass affirmative action Chicago lawyers don’t impress me.

I can’t imagine why folks call M-Obama an “angry black woman”.

I’ve seen her in her swimsuit and she is certainly a head turner.

Sarah Palin always has the reaction to Obama or the left’s latest outrage that almost any normal American would have, which is why she is called ‘authentic’ and also why so many, even on the ‘right’ hate her guts. Michelle Obama, lamely attempting to excuse her husband’s horrible record as president, oh-so politely calls Americans ‘confused’. Palin reacts with an equal amount of surprise and indignation, just as any America would at, as Sean Hannity added, being told that we’re ‘stupid’. This is the constant attitude of Obama and all leftists: they’re much smarter than you. They live by this belief. So, Mrs. Obama claiming that Americans that are angry and disappointed with her husband’s stunningly poor record in office are simply ‘confused about his record’ is probably something she really believes. That this makes her an idiot is obvious - to everyone but her and her leftist circle. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin reacts for all of us - with incredulity and annoyance at the arrogance of Michelle Obama, an arrogance she shares with all leftists.

Wasilla is at the edge of the tundra in the same way that Pittsburgh is on the ocean coast.

Sarah knows why even people like Limbaugh are piling on Newt. Newt knows and his wealthy supporters know that the party is in the hands of a club, and neither Newt nor his backers, nor certainly Sarah, are insiders in that club. Romney is their boy, and who is the Tea Party, or an outlier like Gingrich to try to shake things up. To be sure, Newt for years worked the system to his advantage, sort of like Tom Delay. But Newt is right about Romney. If Newt is a loose cannon and unpredictable, Romney is a man who refuses to stand on his record, because it is completely inconsistent with what he is saying right now. After seeing what the House leadership did last year, and is still doing, a conservative can only guess that this is the direction that Romney will go, also. Pretty much accepting the new budget levels and just trimming at the edges.

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

As soon as one bond becomes due,the Fed will buy a new bond with brand new money created out of thin air. The government will use that money to repay the debt one bond at a time. Perpetual never ending debt is what the central banks want.

I'm not so optimistic. I think the scales may come back on some eyes temporarily in November.
Especially if the economy improves....

Nearby wilderness perhaps. That subdivision has some unique characters but wilderness is a touch beyond.

It is about at the edge of a Best Western although. They might get a little wild there sometimes.

And you're right. I should visit Alaska. It's high on my bucket list.

I agree. Alaska is a great place and Americans should go see it.

Please explain; every day to Mitt; not only 'why' we are angry; but we want our candidate to show some courage and 'speak up'/out and voice the anger; on our behalf.

We are sick of it, out here; the Mr. Nice Guy MO that is guaranteed to lose the big vote. Save it Mr. Grin; and GO NEWT!

(And 'stuff it' RNC/GOP. . .)

"Moochelle would problably take her out four of five unarmed."

No chance. The Wasilla barracuda would whip the Mooches big behind going away and probably do her nails meantime.

It's about tough, not about size.

The term “catfight” is usually applied to battling bimbos. Palin is not a bimbo.

Maybe so (about Wasilla not being on the “edge of the tundra”), BUT - Sarah’s been there and done it all, including working on commercial fishing boats and running marathons. Moochelle? Affirmative action fast food product. Sarah would mop the floor with the cow if she were to LOWER herself enough to do that.

It won’t. They have merely been kicking the can down the road, and every kick is weaker. I predict that 2012 will be the year the curtain is pulled back for all to see. And it won’t just be the US, but for obama it will be an absolute catastrophy. And I suspect his “Core” will go “watts riot” on us.

I expect it to get very ugly. I really think we will have OWS II coming this spring, and it will be much bigger and more violent.

Look around you. It’s not getting better. It’s getting worse.
