Sarah Palin Praises Rush Limbaugh for Defending Matt Drudge Against MSM on ´Obamascare´
Breitbart Big Journalism ^ | 3/24/14 | Tony Lee

Posted on 03/24/2014 9:44:20 PM PDT by Nachum

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh for fiercely defending new-media pioneer Matt Drudge Monday after the White House and mainstream journalists attacked and mocked Drudge for honestly saying that he had paid a penalty for not signing up for Obamacare in his quarterly tax filing. "From one Dittohead to all you others, aren´t you thankful Rush defends truth, and as importantly, he defends those speaking truth!" Palin wrote on Facebook Monday. "Rush is consistently loyal to the cause of justice, walking the walk as he does here in defense of Drudge calling out Obamascare.

What’s funny is all the people who were attacking Drudge were saying “It’s a lie! You don’t get screwed this year...you get screwed next year! (After the 2014 elections)”

I think Sarah believes that clinton is supremely flawed and her campaign would be a target rich environment.

Sarah is definitely shrewd but in this instance, it is hard to define her motive.

Target rich? sure.

But the person aiming at the target better be willing to pull the trigger.

McCain and Romney where not.

I suspect Christy/Bush/whoever the GOPe pushes up to the plate won’t be either.

Sarah loses nothing by suggesting Hillary should go for it. Mrs. “We came, we saw, he died” aka “What difference does it make?” aka “What did you want me to do? Bake cookies?” aka “There’s a vast Right Wing Conspiracy” has made her own bed. Let’s see if she’ll lay in it! Again!

Well, It's only fair and right. Back when Rush was in rehab

Matt filled in on the show and was a staunch defender.

Damn I wish Matt would come back to radio.

She has some soft spot for Hill. IIRC the day she was introduced after she was chosen by McCain to be his VP she went before the press and sent kudos to H Clinton for trailblazing the path for women in politics. It was the one discordant note in an exciting moment when she stepped into the national spotlight for the first time.

I agree, she said it, because she wants to be entertained by the massive failure Hillary’s campaign would promise.

I am extremely confident that Sarah is willing to pull that trigger.

She never mentioned Hilary’s name in her answer to the question. Go back and use a little reading comprehension that maybe you were taught in grade school. She mentioned nobody’s name and for anyone trying to read between the lines she could just as easily been referring to herself or any other WOMAN. Just because Hilary acts like a woman when it is convenient to her . . .

What would be more telling is the inquiry as to your motive.

“Palin responded, “I would like to see women run for the higher office. I think America certainly is ready for more female candidates at that upper echelon.”

If you are basing your opinion of this thread, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3136835/posts the motives of the poster are just as telling as your “expert” comment. It is not the headline of the story.

Here is the actual headline from the Breitbart article;
“Sarah Palin on Hillary Run: ‘I Would Like to See More Women Run for Higher Office’

Notice the actual headline and her quote are in-line with each other and not the headline of the FR thread as posted? “Sarah Palin Encourages Hillary to Run in 2016 [VIDEO]”

Key into the important word of more. Being that Hitlery has already run that kinda leaves her out of the answer, don’t-chya-think?

Nope, time to quit playing games, on both sides. That is our only escape. But the LIV’s make that impossible in today’s world so the only way out is either a very slow turn around with several election cycles, which our economy cannot withstand, or a total Founders reset.

She was asked a question, she didn’t just give this out of thin air, and what she said was that she thought it was a good thing for a woman to run. In the quote I read she didn’t even mention Clinton’s name. What she did was deny the left any ammo for another shot at her.

BTW, Palin did not support a Hillary candidacy, she called for more women to run. Since Hillary has already run, the word “more” means Sarah was leaving her out.

What’s funny is all the people who were attacking Drudge were saying “It’s a lie!"

And they're wrong about that, anyway, as Drudge files quarterly estimated taxes, so he's paying next years taxes (including the Obamacare tax) starting now.

I think I was perfectly clear. Quit playing the friggin games. Patrick did such a wonderful job in imprisoning a whole city, or did you forget about that inconsequential occurrence? Further goes to the point about being careful what you ask for, especially with the dolts who are voting now days.

Furthermore. Reagan’s thing about painting with bold colors and not pastels has been ignored since his Presidency. Playing with pastels in politics will always get you marginalized by one who paints in bold colors. The Progs understand this and for some stupid reason, the GOPe thinks they have to be more like them while the conservative base stays at home in increasing numbers the more they try to be “liked”.

Almost ALL the pundits have this one wrong. Even Rush has it wrong, somewhat. EVERYONE who owes an Obamacare penalty for 2014 pays for it this year. It’s called “payroll deduction”. If insufficient funds are deducted THIS YEAR you owe an additional penalty. Everyone who owes taxes in 2014, pays for them in 2014. April 15, 2015 is simply the filing date.

Exactly. We’re getting screeeewed now AND after the election.

Sarah does everything for the right reason, goes without saying.....

but still, there`s a couple places that could be perhaps helpful for future considerations, Rush and Drudge

I have always liked Drudge, really enjoyed his old TV show on Fox and his Sunday night Radio show.

I listened to RUSH daily last election cycle, he on occasion took calls from huge Palin supporters, I thought his support for her could have been a little stronger I must say....

Good guy to be on the right side of though....Dont get me wrong am a RUSH fan, but nobody is perfect

Sarah has Mark Levin locked up, Drudge and RUSH in your corner would be great also

BTW not that I have any illusions she will run
