It's utterly wrong that obumbum will leave the WH with millions in the bank he didn't earn. Meanwhile, the rest of the country rides out the mess he worsened!
American Future Fund's best ad just aired during DWTS. 2008 debt and unemployment levels compared to 2012 with a projection of what they will be in 2016 if O'Bambi is re-elected. Prime slot!
Big fan of The Right Scoop but a bit baffled where a clip of Bristol Palin fits into the substantive political issues being discussed?
Bristol's got a lot of heart. I was impressed with how she drove herself down to be a part of this show at the start. I also enjoyed her courage when she encountered that vile deviant in the bar that was talking vile trash about her mother. Good for you, Bristol. Keep a good head and follow your Mom's example in your public conduct.
Its truly unfortunate that the children of high profile political figures like Gov Sarah Palin, are used as targets by the vile vitriolic hate filled leftist radicals.. Bristol Palin just has to get used to that idea, that the left is out to personally destroy the Palin's whole family, ie; they are at war with them- which they are at war with with America, the US Constitution, Democracy, Individual Freedom and Liberty, etc, for which the Palin's represents.
I personally view their actions of hatred as badges of honor, and would wear it proudly in the fight against liberal fascism, aka tyranny.
Not sure you are up on these tricksters who are just "PROGRESSIVES".
If you are not, it is not fun to learn there is a massive campaign to mislead you/us.
Simple explanation, progressives (dishinest liberals) wil accuse others of what they are doing to confuse and mislead.
Read "Rules for Radicals" by Sol Alynsky.
"The end justifies the means".
Most true Republicans are NOT radical, but some are big GOV
"progressives", but usually they don't go down the road to being
dishonest about anything and everything.
Our Media is infected with SEVERE liberalism, that is what we don't get the truth about much, unless it takes down a Republican.
Watch for it, you will see it more and more if you watch what a they say.
Now days, I have trouble watching any station but FOX, and even on there, there are some prigressive style attacks and libs popping off to much with disinformantion, but FOX feels it has to show all sides.......for some reason.
Look how White House has covered up BENGAZIGATE.
Lying Progressives, Chicago style thugs thinking they can do anything and we have to accept it !
Not after Nov 6th !
Open thread question:
What is so "radical" about the Republican Party? I've seen this word thrown around, but I don't know what the Lefties mean when they use it. I mean, they go so far as to call Obama a "centrist" even though his limited voting record often puts him further left than anyone else in the room, so far as I know.
The GOP is generally "conservative" which is the exact opposite of "radical." So what qualities are the Lefties referring to when they use that word? Are they talking about radical in limiting abortion rights? Radically opposed to gay marriage? What?
(Honest question. Not blowing ye old dog whistle.)
its another example of the left changing our language, the meaning of words and in general, mixing things up so much the average person (not politically inclined) has no idea whats being they stand for. Jeez, only today through a RS provided link, did I find out the implications of "sustainable" products and thoughts. Look for these two words to pop up sometime in the next coupla weeks, "racist" and "islamaphobe". The left is going to be throwing these words around much like they did in the 50's , employing the name "red baiter". They're good at labeling even though they have a "big tent" huh? So to get to your radical question, the answer is, its part of the lefts overall ploy to confuse everyone into thinking that the lefts socialist agenda is middle of the road politics. Radical? Today, radical to me means extreme left with roots in islamist beliefs and causes. I refuse to let them hijack the word radical to describe me rather than their cohorts and abettors.
I try to keep my opinions to myself when in public (yeah I get out sometimes), but of late find it hard to not engage with young people at checkout lines. It's been a great time to reach out to the young ones and bluntly ask their voting intentions. If they indicate Romney (not enough) I shake their hand and thank them for their foresight. If they indicate undecided, most of them listen to a succinct (remember their attention span) 2 part theory as to why Romney should be their option and why O shouldn't be. They are much more willing to listen than 4 years ago. Attempting to steer these kids to the right has become a satisfying chore for me lately. Now is the time to expose 0 to his young minions, he's weak, they finally see it. Convert some kid while the time is right. Go Mitt, Ryan and Col. West them a two part short succinct
You're a true patriot!
One line that may work is to tell them by 2025 every dollar of tax revenue will be used to fund medicare, medicaid, social security, or the interest on the debt! No money for education, defense, roads/bridges, etc!
And follow it up by saying obama wants to increase our deficit by an additional $10 trillion!
Finally a good comeback to the stimulus is that not only did unemployemet stay over 8% for over 42 months despite claiming it'd do exactly the opposite, but we spent $250 K a job for the stimulus!
Small 1" punches like those are perfect, especilly if you can formulate 4-6 facts which show a couple of distinct comparisons. I've been able to completely disarm them by outting the fact I don't like how the black community (unemployment/dropout rates) is being treated. Completely disarms their racist angle. A couple of more facts to show the differences and then sometimes I close it up by saying their vote is more important now than 4 years ago
suspicious supposed political research calls that are going on!
Back in late September, a man w/a foreign accent called from caller ID "Research Center", phone # 231-224-2034. He had my first and last name! He said he was with "National Public Research" and wanted an opinion from an honest voter. He made a point of saying they would not ask for a donation. He asked if I was registered to vote at this address, though I had not given him my address. He wanted to know my year of birth! I said I'd give him an age range (and did) but would not give him an exact year of birth. He politely thanked me and ended the call!
On Sunday afternoon, October 7, a lady named Jody called from a caller ID of unknown name, unknown number. She said she was with Intel Research and asked how likely I was to vote for President and the Senate. I told her I was planning on it. I could hear many voices in the background on her end (and think I did with the man previously as well). She asked a question along the lines of if I was with the media, newspaper, or working for a political party or candidate. I said I wasn't. She said the call was confidential and they wouldn't ask for a donation. She asked if I was registered to vote at this address. This lady did not say my name, but she asked what year I was born too! I told her I had already reported a previous call and I didn't think they were legitimate, asking my year of birth. I told her I had been willing to give an age range with the last guy but they hung up. She politely thanked me and hung up too.
I did some looking online after Sunday's call and found this information listed on one website in regards to the phone number that was provided on caller ID the first time I answered:
25 Jun 2007
I found out later that MWR is a "push poll" organization. A push poll is a form of negative campaigning in which a caller will ask a question that links a candidate with what is usually a hypothetical and false statement. Such calls are named push polls because they are designed to push voters away from a candidate and are disguised as a poll. The American Association of Political Consultants has denounced the tactic.
Caller ID: Out of Area

I forgot to add that they represented themselves as "Mountain West Research". Never heard of them.

In closing, these people are obviously asking for more intrusive information than warranted and are using various research names under the guise of being political polling research people.
We watched the first season but after they manufactured the feud between "Mr Peterman" from Seinfeld and the soap star so they would have a re-match, we were a little turned off. Then, one day when I was flipping channels I came across the host who seems so friendly, totally bashing the Republicans- not the policies- the people.
Intrade shows Romney up from ~ 33% to 39.%, and BHO down from 67% to 61%.
Starting to catch up to reality.
I admire Gov. Palin but why would Bristol do this on National TV? Maybe she needs to grow up just a tad.
I think she is doing just fine on the growing up part. Last week was not a strong performance for Mark and Bristol. Mark stood back and let Bristol get blistered by the judges, she took it "like a man". This week we found out that Mark didn't show up for dress rehearsals last week.
Bristol has had her fair share of partnering with boys pretending to be men. Bristol had every right to be disappointed with Mark. Mark needs to man up and give 100% to the commitment he made.
I think she is a brave girl for going thru this. I love that she is partnered with Mark because is a gentle soul and is good for her. She is a good role model for young girls that messed up but is willing to change and move forward. Her Mama raised her well! Plus she is kicking tail...loove it!
I'm glad RS posted this, it shows the length that the C O A liberal media will do to get to Governor Palin.
I have read some of the comments here and I felt I needed to respond to some of them. Bristol did not go and seek being on DWS they called her and asked her and I'm quite sure Bristol consulted with her parents. This is a well paying job for her. This is what capitalism is. As far as hurting Governor Palin's political asperations, wrong! Governor Palin has gone into the belly of the beast many times and the libs who don't like her line up to take a picture with her and after meeting and speaking her, Todd and the family they come away with a different perspective. I don't see anything wrong with Bristol being on the show, she has to support herself and her son. Even though she has a job in a Doctors office I'm quite sure her pay check is no where near what she is earning on DWS. Who wouldn't do DWS for what they pay to be on the show. Another point I would like to make is living in Alaska the cost of food, gas, utilities etc is very costly. As far as the judges and some of the other people on the show they are all liberal and have not been to nice to Bristol and Bristol is smart and knows this. The judges have show'd their ass when they give higher scores to people who should have been slammed and it wasn't done. Again there is nothing wrong with Bristol accepting to be on the show, they pay well so why not.
This is capitalism you get a job with a big company and get paid for doing the job.
If this fight was a ratings move by Bristol to get people to tune in and vote for her AND to get to judges to score equally, she got everything she wanted.
I think the fight was good for the show and good for a healthy friendship. I think Mark is a real friend to her. I hope they have stronger, better communication after this.
I hope she stays on DWTS longer!!!
Bristol is a 21 year old single mom who is responsible for providing for her son. She cannot go out in public without getting grief from the left. She is performing in the most intolerant place in American in an activity she is not comfortable with.
One word to describe her, BRAVE!
Don't care ... don't know why this is posted here ... Love Sarah Palin ... hate that her family is all over reality TV
A) It's an open thread.
B) It's Bristol Palin...c'mon.
C) It was her best dance so far after the fighting. She got her highest score and got mad compliments from the judges.
Why don't you want to see Bristol do well denbren52?
Sorry scoop. Didn't mean to diss your open thread but I'm just not a fan of these reality shows that glorify celebrities above everyone else.
Now the girl that had the guts to wear a Romney t-shirt to school in the Peoples' Republic of Philly - She's a hero to me! The girl that shaved her head to donate her hair to cancer patients only to be bullied because she had no hair? She's an even bigger hero to me!
Bristol is famous because her mother is awesome. I wish her well but I'm not going to get all excited about her or any other celebrity winning a dance contest.
Hey, they can make a buck...ain't illegal....YET.
Besides, I think the Palin family gets it when it comes to pop culture. The GOPe sure as heck don't get it.
"POLITICS IS DOWN-STREAM OF POP CULTURE"
From what I understand, Bristol is doing this stuff because apparently she gets $250k to participate and $50k for each week she lasts during the competition. Her regular job is back in Wasilla... and I bet it don't pay anywhere near that.
She is banking money to support her kid because that douche bag ex-husband is at least $20k - $30k behind in child support.
She owns a $250k house in Arizona and a condo in Wasilla. I bet that she has the rest of her money invested wisely and once the public profile and entertainment value of her name runs out, both her and her kid will be in pretty good financial shape.
As for the drama in the clip, she is trying hard because so many people keep voting to support her and keep her on the show.
She is not a naturally good dancer and most of the other contestants are really good.... so in order to justify the support she gets, she is trying to do as best as she can... and I guess this clip shows how that pressure is getting to her.
Considering all the hate that is thrown her way by the leftie haters, I think she is hanging in there pretty well. I guess that is why Sarah is there each week for support.
As for why are the Palins in the spotlight with these sorts of shows? Well, if you recall, Sarah Palin said a while back that what good is it to be preaching to the choir all the time... i.e. FOX, etc. .... she agreed with Breitbart that you have to go after the liberals in their own world and get into the pop culture and influence that. So, don't be surprised that at some stage down the road you see Sarah involved in that liberal world in order to preach the conservative message to the liberals.
I love Sarah Palin and all that she stands for, her record in Alaska and how well she did in running for VP in 2008. I am really hoping for Sarah to get back into politics on a national level, but I can't help but think this reality stuff will hurt her. I cringe whenever Bristol's name is mentioned because I feel she just wants to be famous. I know she works for a doctors office, whatever, she always seems to be around the corner looking for attention. I could be wrong. But I think Bristols antics are cringeworthy and will come back to bite Sarah if she ever wants to reenter politics, which would be a shame. I wish Bristol would just stay home and quietly raise her son.
Politics is down-stream of pop-culture.
Can you name me any other national Republican, post Reagan, who has ventured out into pop-culture as much as the Palins? Someone has to do it. And if they make a few bucks in the process so what? Still legal...for now.
Stop worrying about the Palin family. Let them live their life!!!!
I'm Soooo gonna regret commenting on this topic. But, no, I can't think of any.
IMHO, Sarah Palin HERSELF had her own reality show! Didn't even go on an existing one. Nope, had her own flippin' show. I really don't get people getting worked up over Bristol here. She's not doing anything that her own mother didn't do.
DWTS asked her and she said yes. She is earning her own money and she has fun. So, why should she refuse and say no against the DWTS invitation.
She is no nun or something.
She is not asking for it ; they asked her.
It has nothing to do with "seeking attention" ; it has everything to do with earning money and having fun.
So?? It still hurts the family name if Sarah reenters politics. They will be teased and not taken seriously. All I really care is about Sarah and her future in politics. I do not care why Bristol is doing what she is doing.
p.s. I too hope that one day Sarah Palin gets back into politics. It could be a campaign with an "against all odds" tune to it. I don't think it'll be any time in the near future though.
With all due respect, how can you say you don't care for Bristol when you care for Sarah and her career? That doesn't make sense. Because who cares more for Bristol than her mother?
Do you know for a fact that she wants to run for office again? You should talk in certainties before assuming you know what's best for Palin's "political aspirations".
You have a lot of consideration for the greater good which is very commendable. But by extension of your logic, however, every decision you make, leading up to an election and during tenure (should one run for office again and win), would have to be in light of how it affects your parent's career/image. Everything you do, therefore, would, if the primary importance of one's life is to aide the career of a loved one, have to be considered upon terms best for that priorit, which I don't think is healthy or realistic.
Commenting on here offering opinions about the Palins is NOT off limits. The Palin family has continued to put themselves in the celebrity spotlight and they will continue to be discussed and critiqued whether Palin worshippers like yourself like it or not.
Again I think she dropped the ball.
Yeah it would've been a tough fight, but isn't it worth it to save your country and get a real conservative elected? She would've had alot of us getting her back but after dragging it out for over 6 months she finally said no.
You're ignoring what actually happened. If Santorum with no money or name recognition could almost beat Romney, why couldn't Sarah with a ton of name recognition and alot more grassroots support do it?
Why run in 2012? The RNC and GOPe pretty much telegraphed who their boy was. After RNC rules 12 and 16 (and the sham "voice vote from hell") the fix was in.
Sarah has only been in the national spotlight for 4 years and if she EVER wants to enter the fray (AZ Senator or POTUS??). She'll have to go into the wilderness, hit the pop-culture circuit (Breitbart is right) and come out as "Sarah 2.0".
You ever thought that Sarah realized that 2012, after much prayer and consideration, wasn't her time? There is a chance she'll never come back. She does have a young child to take care of (and raise money for Trig's trust fund).
The nation loves an underdog and a comeback story. She's isn't going away.
Deb Fischer, Ted Cruz, and Richard Mourdock are thankful for Sarah's involvement.
You worry about YOUR life and they'll worry about THEIRS.
Who says Sarah will ever re-enter politics? After the bums rush she received, and all the backs that turned on her (Giffords shooting), why should she return?
I don't think any of us can ask her to deal with the garbage she dealt with again. Why would any sane person do it once, much less twice. I agree with you, in that she has my vote, no matter what she runs for.
I think Sarah dropped the ball and should've ran. She has shown great fighting spirit throughout her career, why back down to the media and RNC establishment.
Sarah was the only one who could've beaten ROmney. Look, Santorum almost pulled it off with no name recognition!
Sarah would've had a ton of grassroots support and had the guts and record to win both the primary and the general election.
Funny, if you said that to Sarah she would probably tell you to get over it and call in a vote for her daughter. Sarah Palin is the Queen of doing what she believes is right, price be damned. If Sarah had your concerns about this silly show, I don't think she would show up periodically to support her own daughter. And THAT is why I love Sarah. She is tough and grounded and I agree with her politics too.
I think Sarah would be crazy to try again. I like her and wish she would BUT she was attacked as viciously by the RNC establishment as by liberals. I wouldn't blame her if she told both parties to go to hell. She is far to classy for that but who would blame her?
Single mom whatever. Its like I said earlier: if my mom were to enter as Pres or VP candidate I would not do it. If she was not, then I would do it (just not naked!) Maybe the Palins are trying to tell us something........ maybe Sarah has no future plans for politics. That would be sad.
The only thing that would hurt is if Bristol crawled into a shame hole. She is a courageous young woman and is providing for her child. The Palin family demonstrates that they support their children even if a mistake is made. That is the sign of a true leader. You work with the hand dealt and turn things into positives.
" I don't think too many will judge Sarah Palin by the antics of one of her kids. At least I don't. Just saying."
You are kidding right? right? Did you forget 2008 campaign?? Who is Trig's real mom, etc etc blah blah blah.
Unfortunately the Palin family has become fodder for the MSM, Hollywood and many others across the country who listen to their BS. I do not think they need anything else to feed the hungry trolls IF Sarah goes forward into politics.
I love Sarah and her conservative positions, I have always supported her on blogs and financially. I just wish this was not happening.
Bristol should just live her life. The left will target the Palin's regardless. They are damned if they do and if they don't. I do not see the sense in rewarding the left "bad" behavior.
And if you were a single mom with no financial support from the dead beat dad and you had a job that paid, what $10 an hour maybe? Then you are offered $250,000. plus $50,000 per week you were still on the show. I think you would do it and your mom's issues would play no part in it unless she offered you the same money to skip out on it. Let's be honest. I don't sing or dance in public, BUT if you offered me those numbers I'd dance and sing in public while naked.
I understand your point, but I think you might be wrong. I don't judge a politician by his wife or his kids, but by his positions and votes, etc. It doesn't matter to me if his or her daughter or son is on DWTS or some other TV show. The kid isn't running, the politician is. Just like nobody here makes an attack up on NOBama's children (and that's how it should be), I don't think too many will judge Sarah Palin by the antics of one of her kids. At least I don't. Just saying.
Probably not if I know my mother might want to run for Pres or VP one day, no I would not.
If, on the other hand, my mom had no plans for that then I would go ahead and do it.
What are you willing to do to provide for your family? If anyone wanted to see you dance and offered you money to be on a TV show and you would be paid to provide for your child, wouldn't you do it?
