Governor Palin: ‘We Heard The Same Tired Recycled Rhetoric’

Governor Palin took to Facebook to post the following summation on Tuesday’s #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe


If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses.

We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wouldn’t “increase our deficit by a single dime.”

Of course, he glossed over the inconvenient facts. He boasted about job creation, but didn’t mention that real unemployment is higher today than when he took office. He touted all those still undiscovered “clean energy” jobs without mentioning the tens of thousands of real jobs the Keystone Pipeline will create if he would simply allow it to be built. He sang of new energy development, but didn’t mention that new offshore leases for oil and natural gas drilling have declined a decimating 61% under his administration.

He talked about “helping” to build “a thriving middle class,” but didn’t address how the middle class is actually faring under his economic stewardship. This is important – his deception must be addressed: under his leadership, middle class families have seen the average price per gallon of gas increase 96%, the average cost of family health care premiums rise 24%, the annual cost per household from federal regulations rise to over $15,000, and real median household income decline $4,520. If this is what happens when he “helps” the middle class, then please, Mr. President, we implore you to stop “helping” us.

He talked about a “balanced approach to deficit reduction” without mentioning that $5.9 trillion has already been added to the debt since he took office. We’re $16.5 trillion in debt and he keeps digging the hole deeper! He didn’t mention his record trillion dollar deficits or the fact that his last proposed budget would add $9.2 trillion to the debt through 2022. His Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget in four years. That’s obviously not “responsible” or “balanced.” He said, “We can’t cut our way to prosperity.” Well, we definitely can’t get there by borrowing and spending money we don’t have on his “investments” that don’t work. If indiscriminately borrowing and spending money led to prosperity, then bankruptcy would be a sign of economic strength. But it isn’t.

A State of the Union address should give us a true picture of the direction in which we are headed. But we didn’t get the truth last night. And it WAS Orwellian.

What is the true state of our union? Though this may sound harsh, I’ll speak the truth here. We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic that so many have fought and died for (including our brave men and women in uniform who were barely mentioned last night).

We are a country with an economy being stifled under the weight of a bankrupt and voracious federal machine demanding more taxes and burdensome regulations. Job creators are the ones stuck with the bill when Obama calls for “new revenue.” Their businesses bear the brunt of the nearly 87 million paperwork hours imposed by federal regulations in 2012 – annually costing them $1.75 trillion. And I haven’t even mentioned Obamacare yet, which looms like the dark cloud it is over our private sector. Is it any wonder why our economy is stagnant or why job growth is so anemic? President Obama’s “solution” to these problems is to make the federal government more intrusive, bankrupt, and controlling.

If we continue down the path Barack Obama has us on, the long-term forecast of the state of our union is not a pretty picture. Yet he merrily rolls along it, deceiving too many Americans into thinking that these are intelligent, economic, and ethical proposals.

Our President wasn’t candid with Americans about our forecast, but, interestingly, in a Q&A session last week, Paul Krugman, one of President Obama’s economic cheerleaders at the New York Times, was remarkably candid about where we’re headed.

When asked about our federal debt, he admitted that “eventually we do have a problem” especially because “the population is getting older” and “health care costs are rising.” So, what does he see as the solution to pay for all this? He admits that your taxes will rise. And worse:

“Surely in the end it will require some middle class taxes as well. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes, not a huge one, but some increase in taxes on the middle class, maybe a value added tax. And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care – not pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits. So, the snarky version I use, which I shouldn’t even say because it gets me in trouble, is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.” (But wait, I thought there’d be no such thing as “death panels,” liberal liars?)

Mr. Krugman tried to portray this brave new world in the gentlest possible light, but it’s going to take quite a lot of “sales taxes” to meet the payments on the ever-increasing multi-trillion dollar debt we’re burying our kids and grandkids under. And with health care costs rising under Obamacare, obviously a lot of care will be rationed and even flat out denied by panels of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions for you and your loved ones. This is the long-term forecast for the state of America under Obama’s failed policies: middle class taxes and death panels.

Does that sound good to you? It doesn’t to me. So, we better get motivated to do something about it. We’d better get out of our post-election funk and wake up to the radicals’ reality being created as America gets “fundamentally transformed.”

Here’s the good news: President Obama is in many ways a lame duck president. None of his ridiculous ideas will come to pass via the legislative process. Of course, he may try to force them down America’s throat by imposing them through other means. But they can be undone if the right people are in position to undo them. He is very bold right now – some would say cocky – because of his November win, but there is another election around the corner, and we can check his boldness at the ballot box by electing constitutional conservatives. We must continue to affirm the fact that growing our bankrupt federal government is NOT the solution. Most of what the federal government does could be handled better on the individual, local, and state levels.

Our country didn’t weather a Revolution, two World Wars, a Civil War, a Great Depression, and countless other political and economic storms, just to be sunk by the dangerous policies of this current administration. We’re stronger than this. As President Reagan said, “I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.”

So, do something. 2014 is just around the corner. Get motivated! Get organized. America, don’t retreat. In the words of yet another White House program, “Let’s move.”

– Sarah Palin

    Okay, I have prided self on swearing off the "Run Sarah Run" cocktail. I was drinking far too much of the stuff for my own sanity. But, I’ve fallen off the wagon, I admit it.

    That is one of the finest campaign speeches ever written.

    And, if it isn’t a campaign speech, it should be.

    • CharterOakie

      Bartender, another round, please!

    • GatorNavy

      You’re damn right it should be! I hope God sees fit to call on  her to STAND for the Presidency next time around. She has the ability to hit just the right note to bring tears to my eyes when I realize what a great leader she would be to rescue this country from the dark cloud of Marxism being put upon it by the "Great Zero". In the meantime I will and I hope you will;support all of the candidates she STANDS with in 2014.

      Stand with the ‘CUDA in 2016.

      • Julie Barrows

        "Stand with the ‘CUDA in 2016″!  What a great slogan, and I would actually put that bumper sticker on my bumpernstickerless car!

  • Journeymen

    Yes!!!! And we do need more soldiers in Congress in 2014 and we have to gear up for those battles next year. But I hope Sarah sees that we need all hands on deck in 2016 because the Republican Party will accept a Jeb Bush type or the puppet Rubio and if that doesn’t work then they will accept Hillary

  • Lou Gutnicki


    I’m motivated and I will be doing. Thank you for the inspiration.

    Like I stand with Sarah Palin

  • MJScanlonOH

    One heart, one mind at a time Sarah Palin…The nation cries out for leadership, but WE ALL have to do our part to educate, agitate and propagate better ideas, better attitudes and better solutions. Remember, a happy warrior has fun fighting the war and drives the enemy nuts!

  • chuckjr

    Thanks for the recap, Sarah. I have to admit that I couldn’t watch it. I tried… I made it through about a minute of O’s rhetoric before my ears started turning red and I switched the television off. 

    Same old song and dance. Thanks again for setting us straight.

    • CharterOakie

      You’re a better man than I, Chuck.  I couldn’t bring myself to try.  Instead I just stayed here at C4P and on Twitter watching Sarah’s tweets roll in!

      • Julie Barrows

        Our Sarah was having a tweetfest the other night that had me in stitches!  I love her spunk and sense of humor!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks, Chuck!!  obama is hard to endure!!

    • conservativemama

      My husband and I knew to stay away from the speech.  I’ve reached the point where I cannot look at the man, much less listen to him.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        I hear ya, conservativemama!!

      • jester2939

        I’ve been at that point for a long time!!

    • jester2939

      Hey, Chuck, I hope your mom is doing ok after her surgery.

    • ProudAmerican247

      The thought of watching was almost too much for me. I’d rather have a hysterectomy.

    • Julie Barrows

      I don’t care one wit about anything 0dumb0 has to say.  I do care about what Our Sarahcuda has to say, though, and she never lets me down!  In my heart and mind she is my President.

      "Stand with the ‘CUDA in 2016!"

  • Laddie_Blah_Blah

    Without this lady, where would anyone go to hear the unvarnished truth? 

  • John_Frank


    Sarah Palin, thank you for speaking the truth.

    P.S. Thank you Steve for bringing the Governor’s FB note to people’s attention.


  • Lennart Bilén

    Truth to power.

    Can you see the handwriting on the wall?



    • n4cerinc

      ~Ha – DC has been found wanting! 

  • suedixon

    obama, and with his puppets in the media,  is campaigning again – to retake House in 2014.  We will not let that happen. 

  • patnatasha

    I love it.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Splendid; thanks, Steve!!

    This is the voice of a Prophet.

    This is the voice of a Warrior.

    This is the voice of the Real President of the United States!! 

    • CharterOakie


  • CharterOakie

    Simply outstanding!

    Please continue to lead, Governor; we will follow and fight by your side.

    Please continue to speak the truth boldly and fearlessly;  we will echo you.

    If you run, we will carry you on our shoulders as far as we can (if we can keep pace with you!).

    We are motivated.  We will continue to pray and thank God for your life, your courage, your integrity, your commitment and your leadership.

    Let’s move; let’s roll; dang it, let’s GO!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Beautiful, bro!!


  • sodakhic

    Sarah, DC is one big happy family. As you’ve stated, paraphrasing, "they are all in the jacuzzi". The choices, liberal or liberal lite. We are living Orwells, "1984″. Rush has been preaching for 25 years, and yet it’s only carried us so far.The Tea Party is falling apart. At 65, I’m ready to wave the white flag. Unless someone leads us out of Jordan, the promised land looks unattainable. I guess what I’m saying, Sarah, you are battle tested. You’ve faced the muck of the GOP and mire of the Dems. It’s time, Sarah. it’s time.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, sodakhic: It’s time!!

    • Ed from justice

      Sodakhic.. I am 67, but I think that you and I have seen what the American people can do when they get together to accomplish something.  Shortly Sarah will reveal her Palin for American Prosperity and Recovery plan.  It will involve  a national energy policy of drill here, drill now, and develop solar and wind and build a network of nuclear plants across the country, while replacing the national electric grid.  This will require all kinds of technical and skilled and unskilled labor.  We probably will have to rebuild some bridges and sewer systems to accommodate the new work… (probably have to use union labor too in a lot of cases)  Everyone that wants a job will have a job…. just like in North Dakota.  Starting minimum wage jobs  there are $11.00 per hour. The minimum wage is determined by the market not by the government. 

    • Julie Barrows

      STAND, SARAH, STAND!!!  Your army is ready to back you.

  • Leroy Whitby

    Well done. That’s the response to the State of the Union. The GOP politicians were very foolish not to use Palin for that purpose in 2009, 2010, & 2011 & 2012. Then we wouldn’t have had to listen to Obama again in 2013 and Reid wouldn’t be Senate Majority Leader.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      High Five, Leroy!!

      • Leroy Whitby

        An aggressive GOP that really embraced conservatives and wanted to change the basic direction of the country would have had Palin deliver the response to the SOTU after the 2010 Tea Party victories. Would have scared the crap out of the lefties and electrified the GOP.

        Instead, we got Rove and Romney and Ryan and the current GOP free fall . . .

        • MJScanlonOH


          How right you are! EXACTLY, PRECISELY CORRECT! However this will never happen because the Arctic Fox scares the hell out of them because she cannot be bought, corrupted or co-opted.

  • Jon Hall

    I agree completely,once again he has done nothing but lied to the people ,twisted the facts to make things sound better than they are! Thank  you Sara for speaking the truth and please help us to get the right people into elected positions in government to stop this madness before its to late!

  • Christine Riordan Brown


  • ZH100

    Excellent note!!!   Gov.Palin paints a complete and clear picture like no other.

    Thank you Governor Palin.

  • Shane Ladd

    On-point analysis by Gov. Palin; but we won’t "check his boldness at the ballot box by electing constitutional conservatives" if people like Rove, Krauthammer, & McConnell have anything to do with it.

    • Julie Barrows

      The way I see it is that we have 2 choices:  either we gut the current GOP with the conservative base (80% of the GOP) leaving en mass to form a new party, leaving the GOP without any power or money to compete let alone take part in the debates, or else we take back the GOP (but I don’t know how we would do that).

  • jester2939

    I KNEW a Facebook post was coming after her rapid fire tweeting last night!!!!!

    • patnatasha

      her facebook posting needs to go viral.

    • MaMcGriz

       Behold the Palin unleashed.


      • jester2939


  • conservativemama

    Oh God, oh God, oh God…………………………this woman should be President. This woman needs to be President.

    We’ve got to make this happen.

    • MaMcGriz

      Amen. I want the same thing, and although we don’t know what He has in Mind for Sarah Palin, we do know for sure that leadership is as leadership does, and therein lies her power.

      And unlike the power being whored out by today’s PPC, hers is the real deal. It ranges from raw to refined, and she wields it elegantly. Its authenticity only rings clearer with each would-be attack by those who foolishly try and come against her.

      Her firstborn is a battle-tested patriot. One of her dear friends and protectors has just been murdered and laid to rest. This is the mother of teenagers and a special needs child. She has taken names and kicked booty of the old boys club and their corrupt oil buddies. She always shoots straight. She lives in the real world. She is one of us.

      This woman’s got her chops up, and homegirl’s got chops her enemies will never have. It doesn’t matter where she is or what she’s doing her power is in force. They can’t do a thing with her.

      It’s happening this very moment.

      We rejoice with Sarah Palin and we’re pressing on.

      • CharterOakie

        Hot dang, Ma!  Talk to me!!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, Ma!!

      • conservativemama

        Ma, you always make me feel better about things.  I agree with what you say and as always, you say it so well.

        We really have some great people out here in Palin world.
