    Re: Sarah Palin: Paul Revere's Ride to Protect the Second Amendment

    Sara plays right into the media's hands, by trying to prove she's presidential material, whenever they prod her. It's sad. They're playing her, big time.

    Let's face it, she was right and actual historians have said so. The morons are the folks that keep claiming she got it wrong.
    I do find it somewhat amusing that Democrats and liberal leaning posters here are so fired up about context of quotations, videos, etc. when it's THEIR guy that's getting raked over the coals... but not so much when it's not.

    I don't see anyone misunderstanding the context of Palin's comments.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Revere's ride was about warning colonists... specifically Hancock and Adams, that the British were coming. NOT to tell the British anything. Whatever happened after he was captured was meaningless according to the purpose of his ride. Claiming different is the SPIN that I and others are talking about. Palin was WRONG.
    I tried to point that out earlier.

    The same can be said for both sides. It certainly isn't just Democrats. Partisan hacks are partisan hacks, regardless of the side they choose.

    In general I would agree. However, from reading posts on DP, I have seen far more of that from the liberal leaning side of the board.

    If someone asked Obama about the 57 states, I don't think he'd say, "You know, I didn't get it wrong... if you break Hawaii's islands into states...". That's the difference between a slip of the tongue and a Sarah Palin of the tongue. She either actually believes the idiocy that she spews or she is too arrogant and stubborn to admit a mistake.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Your post has absolutely nothing to do with what my post was addressing, which ws context in general. Perhaps if you actually read a few posts before you commented, your responses might not look as stupid and out of place. Somehow, I doubt it though.

    What was her mistake?
