Palinís Well-Timed Reminder to Freshmen
NYT ^ | Thursday July 28, 2011 | Michael Shear

Posted on 07/28/2011 6:48:37 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Sarah Palin has impeccable timing.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee took to her Facebook page Thursday afternoon to warn freshman Republicans in the House that they just might face primary opposition if they cave in to demands by their party to raise the debt ceiling.

“All my best to you, GOP Freshmen, from up here in the Last Frontier. Sincerely, Sarah Palin,” she wrote. “P.S. Everyone I talk to still believes in contested primaries.”

Just two hours later, House Speaker John A. Boehner was forced to postpone the vote on his proposal to increase the debt ceiling at the last minute, apparently facing a revolt among some of those very members.

She appears to be the defacto leader of the party right now.

My Congress-critter is far from being a Freshman, but he supported Boner and I’m looking at primarying him myself.

I wish Palin would call for Boehner’s replacement.

He is clearly out of line with his own line drawn in the sand.

If they don’t care about being re-elected, then they should listen to her and vote no on this joke of a bill.

If they do care about being re-elected, then they should listen to her and vote no on this joke of a bill.

Either way, they should listen to her.

“Just two hours later, House Speaker John A. Boehner was forced...”

What’s not to love?

Palin has been functionally the Shadow President since Obama took office. (To borrow a concept from the other side of the pond and apply it to an office they don’t have over there.)

My freshman congressman didn’t need a reminder.

Ironically Palin and Bachmann are just about the only GOP leaders with any balls.

“P.S. Everyone I talk to still believes in contested primaries.”

I'm telling you, beauty, brains, and a great sense of timing.

Thank you Sarah!

Palin did not come right out with what her position is as Bachmann has.

She is being extremely careful with her words.

Anyone who doubts that Sarah will declare as a candidate,then they are in an alternate reality.Today a tweak from her brought Boehner to his knees. And now
Boehner needs to convince them to consider Cut Cap and balance, which was tabled, debate it in the Senate, and vote it up or down. If Harry refuses, the GOP should walk away and say , “we are done. YOU Senate DEMS Submit a bill and we will try to reconcile it in HOUSE conference. But do not hold your breath. THE DEFAULT IS YOURS! OWN IT.”

I can take default until Nov 2012 when we get rid of Obama no problem.
If the rest of the country really understood what a threat Obama is to our nation and the world, they would say the same.. BRING THE DEFAULT!Obama may try the 14th amendment, but that might mean Civil War. Truly. We are getting close.
