Sarah Palin lashes out at D.C., liberals, media
The Orlando Sentinel ^ | March 12, 2010 | David Damron

Sarah Palin lashed out at Washington, the media and condescending liberals Friday night at an Orlando Republican fund-raising event, and predicted the GOP would restore "common sense" to government in the upcoming November elections.

Palin said those notes she wrote on her hand at a National Tea Party event — where the media and White House later "busted me for using a poor-man's teleprompter" — explained just what the country needed: a strong energy policy, tax cuts; and "lifting America's spirits."

"Americans get it," Palin said. "In Washington, they don't get it."

The wildly popular, but equally polarizing former vice presidential candidate packed the Orange County Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day fundraiser, attracting 1,300 fans to the Shingle Creek Resort. Orange GOP Chairman Lew Oliver said he expected the event to net the party more than $110,000.

Orlando was the latest stop in Palin's high-mileage speaking tour. She spoke in Daytona Beach last month, headlined an Ohio Right to Life Society fundraiser last Friday, and landed in Calgary, Canada, the next day. Later this month, Palin will help raise re-election funds for U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the man who plucked her from relative obscurity to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential race.

On Friday, Palin advocated drilling for oil and natural gas to gain energy independence but said nothing specifically about such exploration off Florida's coast, a source of heated political dispute.

While advocating for standard GOP issues — lower taxes, less spending, more freedom and smaller government — Palin also singled out one Central Florida Democratic politician: U.S Rep. Alan Grayson of Orlando. Palin said voters need to remove the fiery millionaire lawyer in November.

"Do it for the rest of America," she said in a speech lasting about 40 minutes.(continued)

“Lincoln tried to make men Free and unite the country”

Lincoln took away the South’s right to self-government and set in motion the trends that led us here.

Bipartisanship is a demrat con game. It’s underlying premise is that those who oppose them have no principles they will fight for.

Reagan was 8 points behind Carter 96 hours before election day.

Lincoln was so polarizing that the Democrats tried to break away from the Union. I guess that makes him the most polarizing President in U.S. History.

“polarizing” “lashes out”

Notice how the media only reserves these phrases for Palin?

back a liberal you’ll get slammed. I think that’s why McCrap has Leslie meeting with President about immigration (because McCraps hands are tied).

“Slavery is a crime against Freedom!”

Yes, it is. And every other civilized nation that practiced it managed to end it without a war costing so many lives.

“Thank God, For Lincoln!”

Who was quite willing to allow the South to continue their practice of slavery if they would only give up the idea of seccession.

“Get Real, The Civil War Is Over!”

Get real, learn when exclamation points are appropriate, and learn some *real* history.

Just to get you started, here’s something from H. L. Mencken.

“The Gettysburg speech was at once the shortest and the most famous oration in American history...the highest emotion reduced to a few poetical phrases. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it. It is genuinely stupendous. But let us not forget that it is poetry, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it. Put it into the cold words of everyday. The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination—that government of the people, by the people, for the people, should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in the battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves.”

Still nothing but kind words for McCain, though.

Listen its was GOD'S will that slavery was defeated. The South reaped what it sowed. I'm sorry, but the south should not have succeeded, but that would not have have stopped slavery for a long time. Being so evil and all!

The Republican Party was formed to stop Slavery, maybe your in the wrong website.

That why the south hated Lincoln!

And we the people of the USA are still paying for the sin of slavery today, by the mentality of the blacks still being a victims today, ala black crime, welfare, reparations, voting lock stop and barrel for the liberals, and more!

The greatest injustice of the war are the wounded and dead of the North, but where would history be without the USA, WORLD WAR II, etc.

By the way, get over it, get "REAL"! The war is "OVER", for about nearly 146 years!

“Listen its was GOD’S will that slavery was defeated.”

Almost certainly, but I am far from certain that it was His will that so many men die in a war that was mainly about other things.

“The South reaped what it sowed. I’m sorry, but the south should not have succeeded”

The southern states had every right to seceed. Lincoln had none to use force to stop them.

“but that would not have have stopped slavery for a long time.”

Nonsense. Slavery would have withered and died in about another decade, and many tens of thousands of men need not have suffered and died.

“Being so evil and all!”

I suspect you’re just pulling my chain with that one. If I thought you were serious, I’d have to comment on the immensity of the ignorance required to allow such a comment.

“The Republican Party was formed to stop Slavery, maybe your in the wrong website.”

Oh, right, anybody who wants their history straight and honest supports slavery.

Get a mind.

“That why the south hated Lincoln!”

It seems that everything you know on the subject is wrong. I’ll bet you even think the Civil War was fought to end slavery.

“And we the people of the USA are still paying for the sin of slavery today, by the mentality of the blacks still being a victims today, ala black crime, welfare, reparations, voting lock stop and barrel for the liberals, and more!”

Bad, bad, bad theology. “Let not the sins of the fathers be visited upon the sons.”

No American now living (criminal exceptions noted) has committed the sin of slavery.

We are not “paying” for anything; we are suffering the effects of hatred kept fresh by black leadership, with the support and guidance of our communist enemies.

“The greatest injustice of the war are the wounded and dead of the North”

Really? So, God has empowered you to judge the value of each human’s life—and death?

“By the way, get over it, get “REAL”! The war is “OVER”, for about nearly 146 years!”

Are you used to hanging around with people who fall for crap like that? Nothing that I have said or implied justifies that insult. It’s nothing more than meaningless mudslinging.

On the other hand, nothing that you have said or implied creates the slightest suspicion that you have the least scintilla of knowledge or understanding of the causes and results of that war.

I don’t intend to continue this discussion, because you need to read between ten and fifteen long and substantial books before you would be even remotely entitled to an opinion on the subject.
