    Not only is Palin's response to Obama's health care speech a far more succinct and powerful arguement for why Obama and his Democrats are wrong on this issue - but she once again threatens to push Obama aside on the news cycle. Obama gives a national speech that results in little more than a collective shrug from the electorate. Palin responds via Facebook, and the Internet and news outlets carry her every word, which are then blogged and forwarded repeatedly.

    The near-snide remarks by Obama are swept aside by Palin, and then the president's overly generalized assertions and childish belief that government can fix all our healthcare ills are put to task. Last night's speech by Obama was as much a response to Sarah Palin as an attempt to convince the American public of Obamacare - clearly showing the influence Mrs. Palin is having on the national debate.

    Perhaps the most effective part of Palin's response were the final two paragraphs. She is absolutely correct in reminding the public that Obama's easy liberal applause line against the costs of war in Iraq and Afghanistan just 48 hours prior to another 9-11 anniversary was a discredit to the trauma of that day, and the continued work by our men and women in the armed services for the cause of freedom and the defense of America...

    Finally, President Obama delivered an offhand applause line tonight about the cost of the War on Terror. As we approach the anniversary of the September 11th attacks and honor those who died that day and those who have died since in the War on Terror, in order to secure our freedoms, we need to remember their sacrifices and not demonize them as having had too high a price tag.

    Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people. Forcing a conclusion in order to claim a “victory” is not healthy for our country. We hear you say government isn’t always the answer; now hear us — that’s what we’ve been saying all along.

    - Sarah Palin

    Succinct? How about monosyllabic, inarticulate, reactionary, foreshortened, ignorant.

    How is fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan securing our freedoms? It isn't.

    How were the demonized? Oh, they weren't. The war in Iraq itself is perceived as unnecessary and a waste of American lives. Way to support the troops! By sending them off to die unnecessarily.

    If there are a lot of people really respect and admire Sarah Palin, then this world is in deep trouble. If there are only a few, then perhaps the human race will survive for millennia...maybe.

    What then of Afghanistan? Iraq deployments are winding down, just as Afghanistan deployments are increasing - and this was the war initiated as a direct response to 9-11.

    Do you support our troops in Afghanistan? Do you support Obama's increasing of troops in Afghanistan?

    Yes or no pard...

    You seem to be out of touch with reality. Might want to go back to the mountain. Plenty of furry little critters to give you some love.

    Note how that poster danced around the issue of Afghanistan. I believe they oppose the war in Afghanistan, but lack the courage to come out and say it as that would be in direct opposition to Obama's policy - and for some reason, libs just don't want to go there openly - yet...

    *facepalm*

    Really? Out of touch with Reality? Where was the nuclear holocast that Saddam was going to start? Oh wait he didn't have weapons of mass destruction.

    See if anyone is out of touch with reality, its the Republican party. Now I want bipartisanship, but frankly republican leaders are just trying to kill this plan and kill everything democrats try to do. You know who suffers? the American people.

    We need to stop having useless wars, we need to stop having insurance companies keep raising prices to the point that decent hard-working americans can't afford health care. And for Republicans to be against this, you are the party who are killing Americans.

    Ummm, specifically, what freedoms have been secured by the deaths of over 2,000 of our soldiers?

    I hate responding to daily kos koolaid.

    You might want to check who actually said that Iraq was an imminent threat. You might be surprised.

    Then you might want to look up who went to the ME in 2002 and broadcast that Bush was going to attack Hussein. Then ask yourself what happened to the WMD stockpiles.




    Then you talk about bi-partisanship but you can't seem to stop whining about the GOP.

    Get this, the dems have all the votes they need. They can ram through whatever they want without GOP approval. What is stopping them? Democrats who can actually see through Obama;s lies.
