If they keep pushing her as the next great white hope Obama is a shoo in for sure. I'm amazed at the idiots that fall for this crap even though the design was approved in 2005, under G dub.
A since the phrase "In God we trust" didn't come about until the mid 1860's there must be another conspiracy.
She will do good to keep the press and anyone with half a brain out of her speeches.

Sarah Palin didn't allow press at her speech Friday at a Wisconsin Right to Life fundraising banquet, and attendees were barred from bringing cell phones, cameras, laptops, or recording devices of any kind. But Politico managed to get a few reporters in to hear the former Alaska governor again raise the specter of death panels and claim an anti-Christian conspiracy in the redesign of U.S. coins.

While Palin didn't use the phrase "death panels," she implied that rationed care would lead to elderly or disabled people being denied care to save money.

"What may they feel about an elderly person who doesn't have a whole lot of productive years left," Palin asked the audience of about 5,000. (Tickets were $30 each.) "In order to save government money, government health care has to be rationed... [so] then this elderly person that perhaps could be seen as costing taxpayers to pay for a non-productive life? Do you think our elderly will be first in line for limited health care?"

Palin made the "death panel" charge explicitly in a Facebook post the following day. "We had been told there were no "death panels" in the bill either," she wrote. "But look closely at the provision mandating bureaucratic panels that will be calling the shots regarding who will receive government health care."

In Wisconsin, Palin also expressed fear over the moving of "In God We Trust" to the edge of American coins.

"Who calls a shot like that?" she demanded. "Who makes a decision like that?"

She added: "It's a disturbing trend."

What's really disturbing is that (knowing that she's a media-magnet, she wouldn't "allow" any press, cell phones, cameras into her rather public speech! Eek 19

But beyond that, I'm really trying to figure out the significance of calling the impending health care reform "government-run health care" .... when CLEARLY that is NOT what it is!

I mean, I understand the whole propaganda/brainwash//mind-numbing reasoning behind it ... but ... the reality is that that is not even in the least bit what this reform is going to be!

Insurance companies/providers, fat-cat pharmaceuticals and Wall Street are still going to be making an obscene amount of money through this proposal! Eek Maybe not as disgusting an amount as they are now, but a lot more than they deserve after their current gang rape on the American population over the past few years! Mad

But in the minds of nutjobs like Sarah Palin ... I think those people actually believe that what they are saying is true ... and therefore, there is a whole 'nother psychosis at work here! 19 I mean ... where are they getting this from? Confused Because what they're saying is simply NOT TRUE!

Obama and the Democratic side of the Congress are busting their @$$es right now trying to fight through bureaucratic bs to try to change the health care system into something that is workable and good and affordable and fair for everybody!!

It might not be the best system ... but it would have to better than what we have right now. Roll Eyes And on top of all that, having to deal with outright lies (on a national level, at that!) ... the man's got a hard row to hoe ... that's for damn sure!

why are the democrats in power, but bending over and taking it?

do they have a clue at all about how propaganda works?

Hmmm ... good question, NS 19

But from the looks of things, I'd have to guess that the answer is "No"! ek

I dunno ... maybe it's that, "We're the good guys ..." facade that they try to exhibit to the people which makes them unwilling/unable to fight fire with fire! (The Repubs are some thuggish, unconscionable, malice-driven folks sometimes! Eek)

Maybe the Dems just think they can't win? 19 Or maybe they're just too scared to try? sck
