More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 182

"Put this monster back in its cave" Edition

Edisto Joe at The Edisto Joe Outlook:
"Remember the feeding frenzy the left had last year when Sarah Palin talked of 'Death Panels' being formed under Obamacare? Well, according to the December 25th edition of The New York Times, as of January 1, 2011 we will be on our way there... It will be a grand and classic example of liberal arrogance in governing, the ultimate in the minority deciding for the majority what is best... Palin was right; in fact, most all the critics of the bill are right on all points. It's the reason the public hasn't bought into it, and it's the reason they want it repealed. The first order of business for the new Congress is to put this monster back in its cave and seal it up forever."
Da Techguy:
"Yeah why would the idea that you said you didn’t want to let this be public make people think that you are doing something sneaky?"
Dr. Milton R. Wolf in the Washington Times:
"The liberal intelligentsia, prisoners of their own conditioned reflex response, mocked Sarah Palin when she warned America in a Facebook post of the Obamacare death panels. The excitable Keith Olbermann even crowned it a 2009 'Lie of the Year.' ... The White House denied impropriety but removed the provision when fellow Democrats balked. Only then did the bill pass by a single vote. The liberal talking class continued to mock Mrs. Palin and her supposedly mythical death panels, that is, until liberal icon and former Enron adviser Paul Krugman let the cat out of the bag that death panels are indeed a reality and, in his ghoulish vision, killing off senior citizens and taxing the survivors is a solution to America's debt problem... Promises from the White House notwithstanding, Mrs. Palin indeed was right. Death panels are all too real, and no family deserves to be caught up in them. Granted, some may find the term 'death panel' unnecessarily provocative, but then again, what exactly should we call a panel whose decisions result in death?"
Susie Allen at Pro Life in TN:
"'First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.' This is what came to mind when I read the column by Cal Thomas stating that Sarah Palin is owed an apology by the MSM who mocked her and now are stating to break the news of the death panels that they laughed at."
The Intellectual Conservative:
"Mike Murphy is one of these moderate Republican political gurus who claims to know what the special sauce is to get Republican candidates elected in blue states. Unfortunately the sauce wasn't flowing when he helmed the Meg Whitman campaign in California because she got her clock cleaned... It's far from a secret that Murphy despises Sarah Palin and takes every opportunity to take shots at her. He declared that the GOP couldn't go forward with her as a major player. The proof is in the pudding though. Many of the candidates that Palin supported (including Rand Paul, Tim Scott, Allen West and many others) won their elections. Meanwhile Murphy's candidate, with the benefit of a billion dollar fortune, couldn't get more than 40% of the vote."
Donald Douglas at American Power:
"Will 2011 be the year of Sarah Palin? That’s a pretty good bet, I’d say..."
Mario Rizzo at the Christian Science Monitor:
"In an editorial the Wall Street Journal criticizes Sarah Palin for criticizing Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign... I do not believe it is the job of the federal government to teach us anything. It is simply part of the apparatus of compulsion and coercion whose job it is, at most, to main the basics of social order. When we allow it to become our Teacher we are elevating it to a role for which it has no comparative moral authority. Why should its values be authoritative? Why not my values? Why not your values? It is not as if this advice emanates from a source (the White House, including President Obama) that has a reputation for moral integrity."
Paul Krugman, liberal economist, at The New York Times:
"Suppose that from here on out we average 4.5 percent growth, which is way above any forecast I’ve seen. Even at that rate, unemployment would be close to 8 percent at the end of 2012, and wouldn’t get below 6 percent until midway through Sarah Palin’s first term."
Joe Newby at
"Liberal pundits agree: Sarah Palin is horrible. Some might even say deranged... Never mind that Barack Obama cannot put together two words without the help of a teleprompter, and never mind his many gaffes -- 57 states, the non-existent Austrian language, etc. Nothing Palin will ever do or say will change these pundits' minds. If anything, the mindless attacks will only get worse. These pundits are apparently unable to refute her positions, so they resort to the personal attacks. Obviously, that is all they have."
Pam Meister at Big Hollywood:
"Palin didn’t go to the 'right' schools. She’s handy with a shotgun and enjoys fishing. She didn’t have a politically powerful family member behind her rise in politics. Heck, just the sound of her voice drives the left bonkers. She. Must. Be. Stopped."
Shane Vander Hart at Caffeinated Thoughts:
"This book should satisfy the critics who said Going Rogue didn’t touch on her positions and policies enough. While America By Heart is not a wonkish book, it does lay out a framework for 'commonsense constitutional conservatism' (a term she used at the end of Going Rogue)... The book doesn’t answer every question that the electorate will likely want answered if she decides to run in 2012, and it certainly won’t convert those suffering from PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome). However, if you want to gain a better understanding of Sarah Palin’s core values and principles then America By Heart delivers. What America By Heart does is provides a vision for 'commonsense constitutional conservatism;' matter of fact, you can consider it a primer."
T Lee Humphrey at How Did We Get Here Now:
"Why is it that CNN has declared war on Sarah Palin and is doing everything day after day to show her in a bad light?"
M. Joseph Sheppard at Sarah Palin Information Blog:
"The Blue Blood Elites have so far succumbed to PDS that they have lost all reason. How an experienced commentator of so many years standing such as George Will can say -- seriously -- that Palin can’t be elected president because she can’t win the 'collar' counties outside Chicago and Philadelphia is an absolute mystery. Clearly the Beltway elite is befuddled by the phenomenon that is Palin... of the like they have never experienced before -- i.e. she won’t bow down to them -- that they have lost all reason. Certainly one thing is clear, their prognostications can be safely ignored."
Chris Queen at NewsReal Blog:
"It just might be as entertaining to see these cultural elites on the Left come out of hiding to condemn the Palin family on these shows they otherwise pretend not to watch as it is to watch the shows themselves."
Kingsjester at Kingsjester's Blog:
"With Sarah Palin, you always know where she stands. Mittens? Not so much... The good ol’ boys in the Grand Old Party had better sit up and take notice. The 2010 Midterm Elections were a refudiation of not just the Democrats, but big government, business as usual politics. If the Republican party views things from a Beltway/Northeastern Corridor perspective instead of listening to the Heartland, and paying attention to the lessons that were taught on November 2nd, 2010, they are going to be sadly disappointed."
