Wow. The fiery Governor from Alaska that the GOP grassroots first fell in love with in 2008 is back! Sarah Palin (R-AK) has just penned a scathing op-ed for Breitbart.com, lambasting the Congressional GOP for their complicity in passing the historically disastrous Omnibus bill. In fact, Palin is receiving some push back from the PC crowd who argue that she used terms that were “too” graphic and personal. What did Palin say?
She compared GOP voters to a battered wife and the GOP establishment to the abuser!
They did it again. But like a battered wife, we keep going back because every four years they bring us flowers, beg our forgiveness, and swear they’ll never hit us again.
The GOP establishment in Congress is our abuser. We can’t hide the black eyes any more. The whole neighborhood knows. The Democrats are gloating. Obama thanked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) effusively – and why shouldn’t he? Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t have given him more.
And where was the famed House Freedom Caucus – those stalwart conservatives who spearheaded Boehner’s ouster? They were shrugging and handing us a bag of frozen peas to put on our black eye. If we’re lucky, maybe they’ll call 911 for us when the beating starts up again.
This is shameful, and it has to end. No mas!
I know, it’s heavy-handed and powerfully graphic rhetoric… but I don’t blame her for using such language. For years the GOP has been begging conservative voters to vote for their candidates, and for years we have grudgingly agreed. Hoping, like Charlie Brown, that the next time we go to “kick the football” and vote for the GOP they, like Lucy, won’t pull the ball out from beneath us.
But they always do. The GOP has been incredibly consistent in the way they’ve ALWAYS disappointed us. So, no… I don’t begrudge Palin’s use of ‘colorful’ language one bit. In fact, I’ll go further and say her analogy is incredibly appropriate.
I’ll let her explain why.
Together, we grassroots conservatives gave the GOP historic electoral victories because they promised us they would stop Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America.”
Instead, they abetted it. They are Obama’s accomplices.
Obamacare? It’s fully funded.
Planned Parenthood, which was caught red-handed haggling over the sale of dead babies? It’s funded too.
Obama’s illegal executive amnesty? Funded.
Illegal alien sanctuary cities? Funded.
Visas for un-vetted Muslim migrants (“refugees”) to resettle in America? Funded.
Obama’s green energy crony capitalism? Funded.
Tax credits for illegal aliens? Funded.
H-2B visas to replace American workers with cheap unskilled foreign workers? Yep, that’s in there too.
What about funds for the fence that we so desperately need on our southern border? Nope, sorry, they couldn’t find any money for that.
Basically, everything commonsense conservatives despise – and Republicans promised to put an end to if elected – was funded by this omnibus.
They weren’t worried about the promises they made to us. This omnibus was written by lobbyists for lobbyists and passed by corrupted politicians fulfilling promises to these cronies with deep pockets. They campaigned one way, then governed another way.
Again, Mrs. Palin hits the nail on the head. In fact, this op-ed makes me think that maybe what we need is a little bit more Sarah Palin in Washington, D.C. and a lot less Paul Ryan.
