    Re: Glenn Beck rally will be a measure of the tea party's strength

    [/QUOTE]I've seen bits and pieces of the speeches, still trying to figure out the point of the rally I guess we will see in the next day or so but had it been bi-partisan and non political then why couldn't they have done this at a county fair or oh I dunno, without a bunch of tea party soldiers?[/QUOTE]

    Not underdstanding the point of the rally doesn't seem to have discouraged you from offering an opinion. And who are these "tea party soldiers"?



    [/QUOTE]I keep hearing this entertainer bit, if he were an entertainer I think he would oh I dunno, say something entertaining and not try to tell people how they should be thinking wouldn't you say?[/QUOTE]

    There is always the possibility that people can be entertained while learning something. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    Don't know - maybe your post was from an earlier date? Maybe you only believe what goes along with your pre-formed opinion? Maybe you believe Palin so much that even when she lies about what happened to her "ethic's cases" you still believe her?

    Here's what the Anchorage paper had to say on Oct 13, 2008! I'll post an excerpt, you can read the rest here:

    Palin vindicated?: Gov. Palin - Commentary | adn.com

    Palin vindicated?
    Governor offers Orwellian spin
    Published: October 13th, 2008 10:17 PM

    Sarah Palin's reaction to the Legislature's Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation.

    She claims the report "vindicates" her. She said that the investigation found "no unlawful or unethical activity on my part."

    Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian.

    Page 8, Finding Number One of the report says: "I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act."

    In plain English, she did something "unlawful." She broke the state ethics law.

    Perhaps Gov. Palin has been too busy to actually read the Troopergate report. Perhaps she is relying on briefings from McCain campaign spinmeisters.

    That's the charitable interpretation.

    Because if she had actually read it, she couldn't claim "vindication" with a straight face.

    I voted for Bush twice because the alternative made me sick, Gore and Kerry.
    There you go! We know what Bush did.
    I have no problem with the results actually generated but I do have a problem with the misrepresentaion of those results. Facts seem to always get in the way of personal opinions many of whom never do any research and buy the rhetoric of others.
    Translation = Bush did not put the country in the toilet. I don't believe it, and no one can make me believe it. Bush was a wonderful President and I would have voted for him a third time! The country is in the toilet because of Clinton and Obama.

    I would love to hear those so called lies and then compare them to the real lies of this Administration. Apparently actual results don't matter so it is better to focus on those that really don't matter. Give me specific lies that anyone else has claimed that trump these,

    "I inherited a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit",
    "The economic stimulus plan will keep unemployment from exceeding 8%,
    "I will halve the deficit by the end of my first term",
    "The stimulus plan has created or saved 3.5 million jobs",
    "economic growth will exceed 4% this year"
    "the healthcare bill will cut the deficit"
    Those aren't lies, they are predictions, not always come out as planned, however, the Stimulus did create jobs, even the brain dead Republicans in Congress have admitted it. So, who is lying now?

    Boehner highlighted the Obama administration’s recent order that the Ohio Department of Transportation redirect $57 million to shovel-ready projects. Boehner admitted that such stimulus projects do, in fact, “create much-needed jobs“:

    Think Progress » Boehner admits that stimulus will ‘create much-needed jobs.’

    GOP lawmakers privately admit stimulus created jobs
    Washington Times: GOP lawmakers privately admit stimulus created jobs

    And, let's not forget your hero!
    How about Bush's "Mission Accomplished"? Bush said that back in 2003. Did you know that even as our troops are being pulled out, Iraq is getting bombed and many are dying and they still don't have a concrete democracy? How about "Iraq has WMDs" and "We don't torture terror suspects". Here, I don't have the time and energy to post all Bush's lies - but here is a site where you can see some!
    List of George W. Bush Lies

    I could go on but what's the use?
    Yes, you could go on, all the time ignoring the lies of your party and your party heroes. HCR hasn't even been implemented. Obama has only been in office a little over 18 months, your bozo had 8 years to submerge us, but you want a miracle recovery?
    Now those are real lies that affect your pocket book. Trump those with lies of non elected officials
    But the real lies of scumbags such as Palin do affect our pocketbook. Doesn't she also espouse extending the tax cuts to the wealthy? Republicans that are not extremely wealthy are fools to think that cutting the taxes of the very rich is going to benefit them, but, fools are born every day. And as for Palin not affecting our pocket books, why don't you tell that to the people of Wasilla?

    So CNN covered the rally? Interesting, or did you actually watch the live feed I posted? How do you know how many "black" faces were there and does it really matter? What is it about restoring honor that bothers you? Wasn't it you on another thread talking about Patriotism? Oh, the horror of it all, Pledge of Allegiance, Star Spangled Banner, and envoking God! These evil people!!

Noticed that you never offer any facts to back up your claim. That war mongering President got a resolution through a Democrat controlled Senate on a vote that I believe was 76-23. then of course he had a Democrat controlled Congress from 2007-2008 which of course apparently you believe had no power.

    Your opinion regarding what MLK would think of this rally is just that, an opinion. Mine differs in that I believe the man would be proud of all those Americans showing up on the site where he gave his famous speech and showed their love and respect for the country. Hope, Faith, and Charity is being promoted and isn't that what MLK was all about? Wasn't he also about "Restoring Honor?"

    I believe your hatred for GW Bush is clouding your judgment.

    By the way, I don't see a lot of liberals here posting on the rally in D.C. so apparently Beck is doing something right. I assure you if it was negative they would be all over the blogs this morning. What is it, no signs? No political rhetoric? No protestors? No Rowdy behavior? How can that be?
    How, exactly, is Glenn Beck (who'll be stroking his ego and filling his pockets on the anniversary of MLK's most memorable and influential speech, at the same place MLK gave that speech) going to "restore honor to America?" Specifics, please.

    Nice distortion of the actual record. Seems the Anchorage Paper disagrees, did you send all this to them and tell them how wrong they were? As for Wasilla, apparently you don't understand how that debt was created and how it is being funded. Voters decided it was a worthwhile project and voted to support it and fund it. Most of this is garbage and old news. So much hatred for a former politician. Sounds like a lot of jealousy to me.

    By the way, 16 million unemployed Americans, 3 trillion added to the debt, rising unemployment each month in 2010, and declining GDP is a record to run from thus the diversion.

    Re: Glenn Beck rally will be a measure of the tea party's strength

    Why does it seem that the Tea Party still doesn't realize the U.S.A. is a secular country, which is what makes this country so great!. Now they say we need to get this country back to it's roots of faith. 225 years ago America was a melting pot of religions and it is still that today. Beck says today is the day we go back to God but statistics show otherwise as the amount of Non-Believers continues to rise at a relatively quick pace.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
