Governor Palin: Politicians, Lying Then or Now?
Conservatives4Palin ^ | November 27, 2012 | Adrienne Ross

Posted on 11/27/2012 5:51:23 PM PST by Bratch

With the risk of going over this “fiscal cliff” we’ve been hearing so much about, Governor Palin has brought attention to a letter written by Brent Bozell, Chairman of ForAmerica, addressed to Speaker John Boehner, Leader Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Minority Whip John Cornyn. She asks the following question:

Politicians. Were they lying then or are they lying now?

How appropriate that she begins with–and sets apart–the one word that explains why the question needs to be asked in the first place: “Politicians.” America needs more public servants and less politicians engaged in business-as-usual.

Read Bozell’s letter in its entirety here, but an excerpt is below:

With the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, both sides are making opening gambits and the talk so far is alarming. You led the Republican Party for two years claiming emphatically that the tax increase on “the wealthy” that Barack Obama is determined to enact is really a devastating tax hike on small business owners that would kill jobs and decimate any kind of economic recovery. Now conservatives see daily stories asserting that the GOP agrees with the President that “revenues are on the table” and GOP elite are all over the airwaves asking if the Tea Party will care if “a few multi-millionaires pay more in taxes.” That talk is only embolding liberals to demand even higher taxes. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and others are openly calling for a return to taxing Americans in the top rate at 91 percent. Yes that’s ludicrous, but liberals feel comfortable making such outlandish proposals because they feel you are weak enough that you will continue to surrender to evermore higher taxes having capitulated once already. They will never be satisfied. You know that.

Conservatives have one question to ask: If you now claim a tax increase on small business is the correct course of action, were you lying all along when you claimed this tax increase would decimate the economy? Because if you were not lying, you will now be willing participants in the destruction of American jobs in a time of economic crisis. This is the question you must answer, given the posturing of many Republicans in the immediate aftermath of the election.

“Politicians - lying then or lying now?”

Choices, choices, choices!

They’re lying ALL THE TIME. It’s what politicians do.

You Betcha She is!

Too bad the Republicans don't want to follow.

They can either stand by our side or be crushed under our heel, but they will NOT stand in our way.

It is what it is. He told us what will happen. I’m now trying to convince my sister to have Christmas without presents.

I told her it is NOT our “birthday”. It is His and that is what we should be celebrating.

Lots of food, glory, family and celebration of His birth, even though it’s not the correct time of His birth.

She hasn’t got back to me yet, she must be pondering.

I thank the Lord for you (((onyx))). My family just does not understand where I am coming from.

I’d rather spend all that money on a great dinner, giving thanks to Him and be thankful for my little family I have then useless presents.

My sister hasn’t responded.....so perhaps she is thinking about it.

They are lying always, their *word* meant nothing then and means nothing now.
We conservatives have no elected representatives when crunch time comes.

I say Let the Democrats have what they want.

Republicans should announce that they will NOT oppose a tax increase.

But they should name the bill something like "ObamaCURE - a bill to solve all the country's problems."

But when the vote comes up, every Republican should vote PRESENT.

As soon as the Democrats realize that the upcoming fiscal collapse will be blamed entirely on them, they will quickly change their votes and the thing will be defeated.

We have two Republicans with charisama and the ability to win elections both for themselves and others. Sarah Palin and Marco Rubio.We are so lucky they are both on our side.
(Talk about a dream ticket.....)
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving onyx.

They have already killed off my 40 year family business. They have bled me to death and the government meddling in insurance of all kinds has driven the costs so high... add in increased taxes, fees and regulations... we can no longer find any way to make a profit. Stalin has finally won. Now we must find a way to fight back and destroy that which is destroying us. This is what Palin is begging for.

I said at the time the GOP could go to hell with the Whigs.

The only thing is Sarah isn't done.

Not by a long shot.

The Dems and GOP-E will pine for the days of making fun of her as whats her name SNL actress.
