Palin slams Obama in MLK post
CNN's Political Ticker ^ | January 20, 2014 | Ashley Killough and Sara Fischer

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin reposted a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have A Dream" speech on Monday–and took a swipe against President Barack Obama at the same time.

"Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card," she said in a Facebook post Monday, a holiday that marks the civil rights icon's birthday.

No, Bronco. It isn’t that Americans with brains don’t like having a negro in the White Hut, rather they dislike intensely having an unknown, Muslim communist occupying the oval orifice.

Liberals can’t stand it when their own racism is shown to the world..so instead they trash Sarah Palin for saying the truth..Obama uses the race card because he has nothing else..he can’t run on his record because he’s a failure

Liberal blacks are so race centered with a chip on their shouldrs that it is impossible for them to get past it.

It’s true, Obama played the race pity card.

If we feel like wanting to tell Obama to go to hell, we can save our breath. Obama’s already invited hell to come to him with these infernal pity parties.

DO WE or DO WE NOT have access to anything that transcends our current sadness. I would put that question not just to Barack Obama, but to the Tea Party! The Tea Party at least gives lip service to a Lord, and more often than Barack Obama gave a salute to Jesus (which was exactly once IIRC). But has the Tea Party acquired inspiration on how to love its enemies into friends, or just into boasting that it has better political methods? Effective contact with the Lord would do the former, not just the latter. We can’t be making God ceremonial, or God will make us ceremonial. Hey, this is just a nominal people down there, just like we say hey, that is just a nominal God up there. That’s going to be malaise city.

Ping to Sarah's Awesome List!

Happy MLK, Jr. Day!

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.

Now all you New York Freepers George "Andrew Cuomo" Wallace wants you to get the Hell Out.

Say it loud, Sarah! At least she’s talking about this latest stupid remark from Obama. Obama makes numerous unforced errors in judgement. We the public would not know a fraction of how twisted and out of touch the President is if he had not presented us with so many examples and exhibits. Most the conservatives adopt a ‘see/speak/hear no evil mode when it comes to Obama. They are pretty much resigned to waiting him out until 2016. Until that time, these conservatives feel as helpless as a leaf on a tree.

Don't want to put words in Sarah's Mouth.

And Barack Obama promptly averred that he remembered none of it.

Well supposing he didn’t... that means he was in some sort of hypnotic trance, and that’s worse than being alert and sitting through it. Being alert, he could reject the hyperbole. Being hypnotized, he’s taking it uncritically. That’s why he is so la-di-dah, for instance, about the duck up which is Obamacare. Everyone else who has done socialized medicine has done it far better than this. Instead of calling for a strategic retreat, he presses the hell upon America, telling them that yes, this foulest Kool-Aid is wholesome. He knows he is going to suffer and he just does not give a care.

And even worse, America is in a trance itself.

Well I am going to keep on being a pest and pressing gospel, gospel, gospel! Which goes beyond “religion” and in fact “religion” (in the sense of hollow ceremony) is an affront to it.

What other former vice presidential candidate (or former VICE PRESIDENT for that matter!) have they followed around, concentrated on, attacked and written hundreds of thousands of columns about six years later?! If she truly had no power or significance, they’d have abandoned and written her off years ago.

The errors ARE forced. They are forced from the hell in which he’s invested his mind if not also his eternal soul.

And sadly to say, America’s current malaise is forced from the same source.

Except for a few sparks of genuine faith. One way God forces nominal believers into genuine faith is through obviously hellish scenarios like ours. It’s still a gentle let-down so far. We do not have widespread rioting, even widespread shortages. God would rather we get the hint from this and call on the living waters which will banish the hell fire.

Rarely, but not like Gov. Palin. I didn’t get to almost 21,000 threads by not doing news searches. The only political figure who is covered more then Gov. Sarah Palin on a daily basis is Mr. Barack Obama and it’s been that way since the Fall of 2008, take my word for it.

Unlike Dan Quayle, Sarah refuses to allow herself to be destroyed. It is all a state of mind and hers is as sharp as a razor and has the jaws of a bear trap.

I wish Gore was irrelevant, but he's not, I still get Air Headed Liberal's Quoting his Darn Movie.

While I think the Global Warming Case has taken serious hits in the past few years, that isn't stopping them from forcing their "Watermelon" Socialism down our Throat.

At least they are being Honest about their love for Communism now.

VP Quayle could've been President

Daddy Bush wanted that spot for his wayward son. Quayle would've been the President we needed at the time. Where GWB campaigned as a conservative but paved the way for Obama on many issues, Dan Quayle is a proven conservative with a record. The other factor is world affairs. GWB had no expertise or knowledge with that, whereas Quayle was a real statesman with excellent knowledge of world affairs.

Still a potatoEhead. <^..^>

I agree. It is nothing but THE party now.

We need the American Contraparty.

Dexter and Sinister.

Yin and Yang.

Black and White.

Individual and Collective.

Bumble Bee and Hive.

The world is made up of opposites in contention, except in American Politics.

The world is out of balance while the Uniparty rules.

Obama is disparaging the generation of Black Americans who fought for their rights and the American population which would have no problem with a true Black President who understands America and what it stands for.
