Although I won’t reveal my perspective on her speach, as this blog is not a poltical one…it’s disheartening to see the array of ridiculous comments, presumably from those who feel themselves to be “knowledgable” about current events and politics…
Oh God when will she go away? I didn’t know there was a coloring book for economics 101 for her handlers to try to explain it to her. If she’s the best the GOP’s got, you folks are in serious trouble.
Did she even take an Econ 101 class?
Economics 101????? Please don’t tell me this woman is talking about college courses now! If anything she needs to go back to elementary school history and english, not to mention Speech and Communications 100. She’s so useless, she makes Bush look bright.
Her central point was as follows:
“Since when can you get out of huge national debt by creating trillions of dollars of new debt?” Palin asked. “It all really is so backwards and skewed as to sound like absolute nonsense when some of this economic policy is explained.”
“We need to be aware of the creation of a fearful population, and fearful lawmakers, being led to believe that big government is the answer, to bail out the private sector, because then government gets to get in there and control it,” she said. “And mark my words, this is going to be next, I fear, bail out next debt-ridden states. Then government gets to get in there and control the people.”
“Some in Washington would approach our economic woes in ways that absolutely defy Economics 101, and they fly in the face of principles, providing opportunity for industrious Americans to succeed or to fail on their own accord,” she said. “Those principles it makes you wonder what the heck some in Washington are trying to accomplish here.”
Again, you’ll never know my perspective, but a fair point is raised (as is the case in most speeches or news articles)…instead of debate, ad hominem attacks follow with routine predictability. The lack of crticial thinking and unity is terrible…c’mon guys!
