Palin fires back on Facebook with list of Obama gaffes

By Emi Kolawole

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has responded to criticism surrounding a recent gaffe when she said the United States must "stand with our North Korean allies" by listing some of President Obama's misstatements.

Palin made the mistake on conservative host Glenn Beck's radio program. Beck corrected Palin's mistake moments later and Palin went on to identify South Korea correctly. But the gaffe fueled a wave of criticism from Palin's detractors. In response, Palin took to her Facebook page and cited a number of President Obama's gaffes.

In the post titled "A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 states," Palin lines up Obama's misspeaks in paragraph form -- including one in which the president mistakenly said there were 57 states. Each gaffe is linked to a YouTube video.

"Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn't have enough time to do one for Joe Biden)," writes Palin. "Obviously, I would have been...impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue."

Palin goes on to say that the Beck interview was one of "seven back-to-back interviews," and that her past remarks on South and North Korea had been accurate to date.

I must apologize for the grammar error in my 1 post about her book ,I meant to say that both of the books should be used for toilet paper,its a little rough though.
If she were a savor for the people then she could DONATE the 12.5 million to food banks around the country to keep people from starving specifically kids.
How many tons of veggies and protein could kids
have if she donate her misbegotten wealth off near sighted Americans.
Mrs Obama cares so much for good eating habits ,how could anyone look at that and judged it to be wrong.If anything good comes out of this administration hopefully the people sees that she cared about the health of our kids.
MR.and Mrs.Gates donates billions to impoverisher nations.
Oprah donated how many tons of food to New Orleans during Katrina (6 tractor trailers).
The President is the commander and chief of The United States thats it,its in the constitution hes the boss.
My heart goes out to the 46 lost sailors of the
Cheonan,and the 2 marines and the 2 civilians that lost there lives to this maniac with a happy trigger finger.
As Americans it is our job to back the President anything less is treason.
Palin donate your money to food banks across America and teach your kids some manners with out cursing.
Pahlin you do not have a Christan bone in your body, you shoot Gods creatures from the air you beat a fishes brains out,Someone should send you over to North Korea so you can fight for there side.

Ka-Ching! This site just made more money from their banner ad advertisers. All over the internet cash-strapped media organizations are posting salacious headlines about Sarah Palin, hoping that hordes of frightened liberals will click on with their Obamate mantras. Every click is money in this site’s pocket.

Ka-Ching! Thank you Sarah Palin!

Obama's crimes which must be investigated ----


Obama is systematically dismantling the U.S. economy

Where is the proof? You are being driven by wedge issues which are tools used to confuse the electorate.

Obama Exhibit's Potential as a Marxist Dictator

He has actually made it harder for lobbyists to interfere with the Executive Branch by creating a public log of anyone visiting the White House.

Obama is weakening America's defenses

I would like to see your evidence on this, oh wait, that's right, there is none.

Obama appears to be thoroughly incompetent

Only to those who want him to be. Remember GWB?

Obama hates America

Come on?!

Obama has appointed czars, a feature of Communist Russia

Um, this is the first time you ever read the news, isn't it? Czars have been appointed for A LONG TIME.

Obama has nationized the banks

No he hasn't.

Obama has never held a real job

What is a real job? Definitions of real job on the Web: A job which requires the employee to, work regular hours for a consistent wage that often exceeds the provisions of applicable minimum wage


Obama has Nationalized General Motors and Chrysler

Seriously, look at the news.

Preferential Treatment of the Black Panthers

You don't like him because he is black either.

Obama is not a natural born citizen

Go to the library and look up the information. Ad in classifieds, and a birth certificate mean nothing.

Obama has a deepseated hatred of white people

Um, read the books yourself. They are great.

Obama does'nt have a valid Social Security number

hahahahaha! There are mountains of information that you haven't read. Funnily enough, liberals read right wing news along with the left wing stuff.

Please. This is SUCH a non-issue. The mainstream media is LIBERAL for the most part. They will slam the heck out of any conservative, but give a free pass to the liberals dumbocrats in power. Barrack Hussein Obama, our Kenyan-in-Chief has had waaay more gaffes than Sarah Palin, yet the news (if you can call them that) highlights and points out, gleefully, a mistake by Sarah Palin.

What utter nincompoops. The overwhelming public that clearly sees through the partisanship of liberals sees what's going on here. THIS is EXACTLY why the T.E.A. party movement is apace.

Keep it up Lib's. You need to be completely out of power in the next two years anyways, so by all means, keep it up.

The whole Palin family is a disgrace. Look how the son went into the army and didn’t kill a single enemy guy. What was he there for? It’s like he stole money right out of our pockets, he didn’t earn nothing. He’s probably gay and nobody asked and he didn’t tell.

Look how that stupid Bush stole two elections from us, destroyed the twin towers in an evil plot to get more oil, blew-up the levies in New Orleans to kill us black people so we couldn’t get our slavery recompense in the form of welfare. Now, Palin makes $12,500,000 this year and is expected to make double that next year. Barack Obama only made $5,500,000 because he’s a black man.

If Sarah Palin becomes President she’ll drill for oil in Alaska and cause massive volcanoes to erupt, throw the earth off its axis and destroy the world. Wake up America!

How could anyone care about what Palin has to say ,when South Korea just had 2 soldiers killed and 2 civilians murdered by Northern Korean artillery.Now the USA finds out that they have a new style of missle that looks strangely enough like an aircraft carrier killer.
And she worries about what people think, then attacks the President of the United States of America on miss pronounced words.
Are you crazy.
I didnt vote for Obama but he needs help in dealing with a nuclear maniac ,and if I was still serving I would follow orders to protect the people of South Korea.
Palin has no clue whats going on,just the book she has that im using for toilet paper know.
And look at her kids ,they are prejudice ,foul mouthed,they learned all that from there mother .
Any more I dont care who is President anymore ,nor do i care about congress and all the earmarks.
I care about surviving a mad man with a missile tipped with a plutonium war head aimed at the USA carrier Forces.
Ignore Palin shes not worth the time.

wow people are blaming the media or certain political groups for "falsely" deriding her lack of intelligence.

NEWFLASH EVERYONE: She is a moron. She probably never studied history before and probably can't find Korea on the map. Saying North Korea is our ally is NOT a slip of tongue. North Korea has NEVER been our ally. HELLO this is half a century old news.

I am an independent and I think democrats and republicans are equally worthless political parties because there are morons like you that think Sarah Palin is fit to be president and that she even has a speckle of political or economic intelligence. Sorry to say but although I think Obama is a udder failure he has more intelligence than Sarah Palin in one finger. (SORRY for the terrible analogy)

This is why americans are so stupid and devoid of intelligence. If she is elected or even nominated as president i'm leaving this stupid country. lol....

Palin, like most promiscuous overly social morons is a walking case of venereal disease (an STD for those of you who think face book is reality). She talks the talk of a high class hooker while putting her other hand in her "john's" pocket for all she can steal. Case in point her wardrobe at republican expense and her "demand" for a private jet and 5 star accommodations while condemning her predecessor and selling the state's jet to her buddy for a huge loss to become his windfall gain.

WriterDude and all the rest of you saying it is only "progressives" or the left criticizing Paylin. Many Alaskans can't believe she ever fooled anyone long enough to get elected to any office- let alone the governors office. It is far from just being the left. She has garnered more disapproval from a wide swath of Alaskans than anyone I can think of. OK, so Bin Laden and terrorists are more hated, but they aren't running for any office here in the US and she is evidently getting ready to do that. This woman is not presidential material. If she was, she wouldn't be so thin-skinned to have to turn around and call anyone who criticizes her names and try to one-up everyone like a junior high school kid. She is doing the exact same thing her kids are doing! They get on FaceBook and post homophobic and just plain ugly rants against anyone who says anything like "Sarah Palin's show is a fail". But now we know exactly where it comes from! Straight from their mother! She does the same thing! She tweets it, she posts it on FaceBook, she says it on the air, whether it be radio or television. The woman demonstrates absolutely no self control on the same level as you would get from a 7th or 8th grader. That is not someone I would want anywhere close to the oval office. There are people on both sides of the aisle that I can live with in the oval office but she is not one of them. Anyone with GOOD sense would have to agree.

That Hillibillies theme is so true and the only difference is that Jed of the the Beverly Hillibillies was a sincere and compassion individual who cared about people, unlike Grizzly who has no integrity and no knowledge of world affairs, political science, geography, etc. she just wants to make a buck and tell lies and always have only "talking" points without substance to back it up. Grizzly needs to take a former first lady's (Barbara Bush) advice and STAY in Alaska. Best advice to Grizzly, I hope she takes it. The blame for popping up with this Grizzly belongs to JOHN McCAIN, you know the one that was a maverick and now he does NOT remember ever saying that he was a maverick. John McCain is a hypocrit and a liar becuase he knows that we did NOT know who Grizzly was until he tried to bring on another Hillary Clinton, please. He should make a daily apology to all Americans and send Grizzly a cin Alaska, I made a big mistake to America. McCain is the blame for this on-going duracell battery of a disaster.

Sarah "Know Nothing" Palin did NOT make a mistake on the Nut Head Beck show. Grizzly Palin did NOT know the correct information, after all this woman could NOT name any newspapers that she reads on a regular basis. Her daughter's baby's daddy that is running for Alaska's mayor did better on the same interview Katie had. Grizzly then picks on president Obama who had nothing to do with this Grizzly as he has said, he does NOT think about Grizzly Palin. Then Grizzly goes on to say, she does not have enough time to report our vice-president's mistakes. This woman has no integrity or compassion, just for those who pay her to help make her and the dude Todd rich. People please accept the facts, Grizzly will run our country into the ground and then "quit" because of family stuff, yeah right. Palin answer Beck Nut the best she could in all honesty. Grizzly needs a lot of academic studying and compassion for middle class and low income folks. Remember she quit her governor job to make money and it feels good so she will tell all that they better do what she has done and NOT depend on the govermnet to provide any hand out. Remember her Alaska candidate JOE MILLER mustache? Had Joe been elected he was going to stop Social Security, Dept of Education, unemployment benefits even though his wife has been collecting unemployment. Hypocrites to no end starts with Grizzly and et al mostly related to the Tea Bagger nuts.

If Sarah Palin wasn't a threat to the so-called "Progressives" with their failed political agenda, they wouldn't be trying so hard to tear her down. I'm struck by the number of commenters calling Sarah Palin stupid and questioning her sanity. After all, they've never met her and are simply parroting nonsense that resulted from a mainstream media blitz attack that sought to marginalize her candidacy in favor of Obama. It is indeed unfortunate that the left is so bereft of historical wisdom that people like patsy61 would offer an insipid paraphrase of the "Beverly Hillbillies," as if it were a brilliant parody. It isn't. Parody's should be fun. Parody’s should be enlightening and they should be funny. Patsy61 paraphrase is neither. It appears that Pasty61 forgot that the Hillbillies were smarter that the city folks that tried to take advantage of them. Then there's Sumo1 whose diatribe lacks any semblance of reasoned discourse or Jamz who either doesn't know enough to only press “submit” once or feels that posting the same question will somehow make us think that it has substance or that it's funny. Sorry Jamz, it wasn't funny the first time and it hasn't improved with multiple postings.

Your hypocrisy just fuels the Right and makes the Mamma Bear stronger. She doesn't have be elected--or even electable--to take down the democrats, or were you too busy feeling superior to the dummies on the right to take note of what happened earlier this month? Your party works great for elitist liberals, self perpetuating protected unions and state dependant zombies with no ambition to ever become taxpayers themselves. It doesn't work for real middle class people with common sense and the desire to work hard to improve themselves and their country. Until the Left recognizes that and starts to buy back in to the American dream of prosperity and independence as opposed to big government dependence, they'll have only their high opinion of themselves to keep them company as they loose the Senate and the White house in a couple years.

what a sad state of affairs we are in when it is clear to everyone but whiny partisans that this ignorant woman would still be a better president than the one we have.

One thing we can all agree on (except whiny partisans) is that 2012 can't come soon enough. Palin will lose the primary and crawl back under the rock whence she came, and Obama will lose the general election, and the man who did all he could to weaken the US and debase the office of the presidency will crawl back to Chicago and get Ayers to write his third and fourth memoirs.

To the consternation of the left- ever the champions of the middle class, someone from the middle class has actually shown up- the Palins. The left game plan calls for the middle class to be passive beneficiaries of left-wing policies- not for any specific middle class people to comment on events. It also calls for the middle class to play the victim of decades of inequitable income stagnation- as opposed to dancing with the stars and salmon fishing...
it's all supposed to be about jobs.Yet she's become a major political force without saying a word about jobs.... she doesn't have to say much about north korea, either.

To Todd Palin,
Mr. Palin, since your wife likes going around shooting off her mouth where it does not belong and she is never home. May I suggest you get like a mistress or go into the porn industry. Having her always gone must be really hard on you. Especially since one of your daughters did not know when to say stop and the other one is homophobic. The everyday problems have to be taking a toll on you. And with your wifes ambition to become President even though she is no where qualified you are going to have to consider two things. 1) If she is ever elected you become First Lady, and 2) You know she will make you wear dresses because she will use the excuse the First Lady should be pretty. So I suggest you get out while the gettings good. Take half of everything she has conned out of the American people. Buy a farm and raise your kids and grandkids in a better environment. Because rumor has it that after the Reality series is over she is shooting for a sitcom. Good Luck and God speed.

Sarah Palin is a skittish little coward who runs from the press. She wants to be elected to high political office, but she is deathly afraid of any journalist who is not on the payroll of Rupert Murdoch. She is a quaking little coward.

Palin is still gun shy from the interview with Katie Couric and she hides behind Facebook and Twitter quaking in her boots with other people writing for her. She is flat out scared out of her wits that someone will ask her a question that may uncover more of her rank stupidity and lack of any hard work to learn about any subject outside of moose stew.

Palin is a little yellow coward who is afraid to defend her ongoing attacks on an array of people including her silly attacks on the President of the United States. She has a big mouth and a nasty attitude but she really is just another little nasty weenie running scared.

If a liberal had contributed to this country as Sarah Palin has done, she would be a media darling and beloved of the left. She would be labled "brilliant." Her gaffs would be corrected on the spot by helpful journalists. (I am reminded of the time George S. from ABC news corrected Obama's slip "my Muslim faith," with "you meant my Christian faith") Conservatives are routinely labled as nitwits, dimwits, morons, and the like. This is because no one can argue with them on the issues. When a Repulican is hated with such venom by the left, I do believe that that Repulican may be in the neighborhood of my desire. So hate away, my dear liberal friends. Reduce your arguments to angry slurs. Meanwhile, common sense people who love this country will gently wrest it from the grip of big government and incompetence, and none too soon.

Okay. Everyone accidently makes little boo boos while talking. No one is immune to it. I did one once that was so embarassing I don't even want to mention it. So that has nothing to do with a Presidential bid. What I look at is her and McCain constantly being petty towards O'Bama. I've spent two years listening to them whine. Thank God they lost. Can't imagine the mess the would make in the White House with that type of maturity. In regards to Palin even ever being in a Public Service position again. Please, please don't let a quitter and a person whose family is terribly dysfunctional become President. We have enough problems already. Be it Republican or Democrat, for our sake as a nation, look for someone who has some integrity and maturity.

Can't imagine the mess the would make in the White House with that type of maturity. In regards to Palin even ever being in a Public Service position again. Please, please don't let a quitter and a person whose family is terribly dysfunctional become President. We have enough problems already. Be it Republican or Democrat, for our sake as a nation, look for someone who has some integrity and maturity. No more "It's not sex" in the White House or Watergates or any other scandoulous behavior. Think, folks, think. There are, albeit few, honest people in politics.

Now lets examine Obama.... Lets move onto another subject, Obama himself. Here we have a guy that nobody knows anything about, nobody ever heard of, his entire past is hidden, he spent his youth in a broken home, surrounded by racist preachers and the "hating whitey" crowd....and THIS is the man you though was going to pull us out of danger?? Seriously now guys. What this administration has done is create a climate of uncertainty, nobody knows what the tax situation will be, nobody knows what their health care costs will be. Companies cant do any projected budgets to see what they will owe and what these changes will cost them so the result is small companies are holding onto their money for a rainy day, not expanding, not
hiring...nothing.Plain and simple folks. Then they have the nerve to still be blaming Bush. So when does this mess belong to THIS administration guys?? When does this administration stand up and take some responsibility?? I am truly disgusted with this entire government. 2012 can come soon enough, lets just hope they don't ruin whats left of our great country.

I agree with her advocates. She's getting picked on by the media for this one. Biden "mis-speaks" seemingly weekly but it almost never makes front page news.

However, if Biden said the same thing, no one would question what he meant. He's got more elected foreign policy experience than almost anyone in the country.

The reason why the media, and the public who disapprove of her, are making an issue of this is because, true or not, they find it *plausible* she doesn't know the difference.

That's what makes it compelling.

Time for a thought experiment. Let's say that Dick Cheney went hunting with Sarah Palin and had another unfortunate incident. My question is, if she did get shot in the head and this time it actually did some real damage instead of just facial wounds, would we be able to tell the difference?

Would the whoosh from all the air escaping her head cause wind damage to buildings in the local area? Or would there be no damage, since her head is so full of rocks that the buckshot wouldn't penetrate it?

And for all those people who say she's got a "sexy librarian" thing going on, puhlease. I wouldn't cross the street to tag her.

Note to liberals:

The American people have made a clear statement and will continue to make the statement to the political establishment that it is out of touch. They want a return to the values that have made America the freest, most prosperous nation on earth.

Sarah Palin is a sideshow. Even conservatives like myself don't want to see her anywhere near the White House. But she is riding a wave of popular discontent that the Democrats better address or they will find themselves beaten again soundly in 2012.

Eight seconds before -- in the same interview -- Palin identified North Korea as our enemy. The media simply piled it on for what was essentially a slip of the tongue. The irony, of course, is that the media are working so hard to trash Palin that she is given headline coverage every day and she is thereby becoming more popular.

Our mainstream media have taken a sad turn for the worse. Fundamental fairness in coverage is no longer pursued, and in a financial crunch, reporting National Enquirer style news (that sells papers) passes for real journalism.

While this episode may confirm to Palin-haters that she is incapable of the presidency, it confirms to the rest of us that the media is run by some highly incapable, short-sighted people who no longer adhere to the standards of the profession.

Virtually devoid of compassion for those less fortunate outside their immediate circle, unable to think logically beyond their own self-aggrandizement, pompous, rude, arrogant, willing to lie to get what they want, intentionally divisive and mischievous, and generally not very bright.


IN fact, Sarah is herself a lapdog for the Lapdog Party, aka, the GOP / T Party.

These folks are stuck in the middle ages, when dirt-poor peasants lived on vast estates of teh very few wealthiest people, and for generations learned to spastically and with no thought at all defend the very people who made sure they stayed dirt-poor, with never any hope of ever climbing out of that miserable existence.

Obama and Biden have made more gaffes than Palin and Bush combined, yet you never hear about that, do you? The lemming left wing-nuts are too busy reading the Daily Kos, Huffington Post, and watching Rachel MadCow on MSNBC to get the full truth and this thing we all call.....context and perspective!!!

This is why liberals, socialists, and the Democratic party will in 2012 fail, or be reduced to the halfling it should have been a long time ago.

If we kind of take a look at US History of attacking other countries that have no interest of attacking USA, Sarah Palin might be right.
So far, every country we attacked, we either used to be ally of them or we became their ally.
But regardless what, she is pretty stupid, in fact way too stupid and inexperienced to be any kind of politician, because so far whenever she was hit with direct question or suppose to give a straight answer, SHE FAILED.

Total BS. Obama has proven the ability to deliver a great speech via TelePrompTer. Beyond that, he has proven nothing to "everyone". He picks and chooses his interviews to ensure friendly confines. He dodges the tough questions in the few press conferences with his long winded non answers. He does town halls with hand picked participants. He was never challenged by the press in the two years leading up to the election - no microscope of any intence variety - or since. The double standard is in full force. No, he may be a great professor/lecturer, but there really does nit appear to be too much capacity beyond the book knowledge...nothing practical to prepare and educate for leadership and practical application of supposed intelligence.

If you add D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and other voting territories of the US, I suspect you might get the 57 entities that Obama was naturally thinking about.

Former Governor Palin's justification for digging up President Obama’s faux pas or slips of the tongue remind me of the childish response to a parent’s cease and desist command, to which the child responds by saying, “But Mom, everybody’s doing it.” In Governor Palin's case, however,such retorts do not take into account that Obama and others paid a price for their slips of the tongue. Now, it is her turn. Her behavior belongs somewhere in a study of Mob Psychology, in which a person loses his/her identity; and in its place becomes just another adolescent escape clause for her slip of the tongue. Then, too, it may be part of the recurring adolescent rebellion against family rules; or to put the problem in a more favorable light: an ironically misguided step of establishing his/her own identity.

Let's look at these facts, Obama, never a Professor, he was a part time lecturer. BIG DIFFERENCE LeftwingNuts. He was a Part time, State Senator of Illionis...7 yrs..4 months out of the year, ..He was a United States Senator for 142 days, just over the 90 day probationary period for sales clerks at Walmart...oh yes, and he was a Community Organizer, never saw any awards or articles discussing his extraordinary performance there??? Then Prez.

Palin in contrast was an Alaskan Councilmember 4yrs...Mayor 4yrs, Governor 2 yrs, VP candidate 8 months...wow, you naysayers can say Alaska aint a real state, or Anchorage aint a real city, all you want but she far outweighs OBies experience and you should give her the credit she deserves.

If she counts her 30-second cutesy remarks at a book signing, seven Facebook or Twitter postings, as an 'interview', then it could have been seven "interviews" 'back-to-back'.

I'm an independent who could just as well vote Republican in 2012 as I could Democrat, depending on the state of the country at the time and the candidates who are running. But my God, Sarah Palin is a national embarrassment. Her ego has gotten the best of her. The thought of her in a position to negotiate with a world leader from a country she can't even find on the map is a frightening thought of major proportion. I have to hand it to her; between she and her handlers, she has made an enormous amount of money slinging her brand of mud to a willing public. This is however, a metaphor for the intellectual stupidity of this woman who couldn't stay in any one college long enough to finish until the fifth one, sought the trust of her fellow Alaskans to vote her into office and was too thin skinned (or let's face it, greedy) to serve out her term and now she's thinking she qualifies for the highest office in the land? Whoever we choose to for, God I hope we aren't that stupid.

Sarah Palin's major issue is that she is a coward who runs from the press and then tries to pick and choose the Rupert Murdoch shills that she will talk to publicly. She is afraid. She lacks any real courage. The problem is that her ignorance and lack of education still come through even when she is talking to bought and paid for Rupert Murdoch puppets like Glenn Beck and Shemp Hannity.

Palin tries to use insults and hatred aimed at the President of the United States to cover for the fact that she is downright terrified of having to speak to anyone who may expose her ignorance and stunning lack of knowlege on any subject. Palin is running scared. She is ducking the legitimate media as did Sharon Angle and other members of the Tea Bagger klans and calling them the "lamestream media". Deep down inside, she knows that she is a quaking little yellow coward hiding behind Twitter and Facebook. She really is quaking in fear of the media that is not owned by employer Rupert Murdoch.

When you are as dumb as box of rocks, it is very difficult to disguise when you are constantly in the attack mode against others and totally lacking in even a single idea or proposal of your own to meet America's challenges.

George Bush was probably the most gaffe prone politician in recent memory. He took the high-road and didn't comment on the media, political opinion pieces, and comedians. By taking this elementary school attitude with the media Palin is only solidifying public opinion that she is not qualified to be president. Every instance that she cited was reported in the media or she would not have been able to post the links. She is only refuting her statement that the media does not report on gaffes by other politicians. If she is serious about running for president she had better get a handler that will keep her from responding in this nature. Responding on FB just makes it appear she is allowing her teenage daughters to manage her FB account or she is immature. But it appears she is really in it for the money. The more she keeps these gaffes alive the more publicity for her book and more money.

It seems rather apparent that Sarah Palin needs a seasoned campaign adviser to counsel her on how to react to these predictable episodes. She makes a huge mistake by trying to find some morally equivalent example of a similar gaffe--and particularly on the part of the President of the United States who is in the public eye far more frequently than she is.

In this instance, Palin's critics were ridiculously obvious in their "lame" attempts to make her look foolish. This was a perfect opportunity for her to exhibit Presidential-like gravitas by simply laughing it off, explaining it and pointing to the hysterical heehawing of her critics. But, she didn't do that. Instead, like a schoolgirl striking back at a past boyfriend who jilted her, she tried to tar the President with a similar charge of being gaffe prone. This indicates a tendency toward juvenile behavior, even childishness: "If I'm one you're one too!"

It is this sort of inability on Palin's part to exercise self discipline, to show a more mature detachment from such adolescent silliness, that convinces so many of us out here that she should never be allowed anywhere close to the Presidency. She would have done far better for herself to take the President's more adult tack: "I don't think about Sarah Palin that much I'm too busy doing the people's work."

This is a story about how poorly Sarah Palin 'speaks to people'. She made a HUGE mistake while 'speaking' to her buddy Glenn Beck during a widely-televised "news" program. She was in essence, hoping to be 'speaking' to a whole lot of people during that interview, and again, she made a HUGE mistake. So, no, she CAN'T really 'speak to people'.

She gets mad when people tell her how wrong, how stupid, how foolish she is, and then she runs to her "mommy" Facebook and Twitter, so she can 'tell on' those 'bad people who hate her'...........

Palin is completely correct to say that the media is overly focused on every little thing she says and for what reason?

In 2008 election, Joe Biden as obama's running mate said that the depression his during the term of Roosevelt (it was Hoover), and that FDR went on the television to help calm the fears of people (t.v. was not in anyone's home at the time or in any other time of FDR's adminstration). But, what did the media do with these tidbits of knowledge? Nothing, nada, zip! So why is that?

With unemployment hovering near 10 percent nearly two years after President Obama signed his economic stimulus package, Mr. Obama is acknowledging that, despite his campaign promises, "there's no such thing as shovel-ready projects."

Posted by: drjcarlucci | November 27, 2010 8:47 AM | Report abuse

The difference between Obama's gaffe and Sarah's is that about 80% of the people don't doubt that Obama knows how many states there are in the USA, whereas in Sarah's case the same percentage of the people have serious doubts about whether she honestly knows the difference between North and South Korea. So why do so many people believe that Sarah is ignorant, immature, uneducated, delusional, and dumb? Is it because of the news media or because the answers and comments she has given in the past, like "death panels", "prices of food have risen significantly in the past year", "Thinking that Africa was actually a country", "Not being able to name 3 countries that are part of NAFTA", "accusing Obama of having said that this was not a Christian nation when in fact he actually said this was not JUST a Christian nation", or her answers to some basic questions like: "Q: Which magazines and newspapers do you read, specifically? A:All of them","Q: Which of the founding fathers is your favorite? A:All of them","Q:Which economist has the best advice to fix the economy? A:All of them", "Q: Can you name a Supreme Court decision? A: Roe v. Wade", "Q: What about another? A: You Betch, Roe v. Wade".
If Sarah Palin wants people to respect her for her ideas, wisdom, maturity, vision, and knowledge then she needs to start given interviews to news organizations where she won't get to see the questions in advance. Her argument that all news organizations except for Fox News are biased is absurd. Just look at all the stuff that Obama had to put up with being a Muslim, not being a US citizen, the Christian nation misquote, all the Hussein naming, etc. Or all the stuff that President Clinton had to put up with the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the cigar stuff, etc. Or all the stuff that Pelosi and Reid had to put up with. Sorry, but that is the way the free press works. Palin loves to use the news media to distort, misquote, degrade and humiliate all her opponents but she starts crying foul when somebody truthfully quotes something she actually said. I think it is time for Sarah to "Man Up" and stop being a coward hiding under Fox News, Facebook, and Twitter. If you want to be President, let us ask questions to see if you are as smart, mature, intelligent, educated, wise, as you claim to be or if you are just a fraud milking everybody around you for money.

There is a huge difference between what Obama did and what Palin did. Her errors show she just simply doesn't know. I saw what she said with Glen Beck. I though the North Korea gaffe was a simple error and didn't pay much attention to it until Beck corrected her and her follow up indicated that she actually though South Korea was the enemy state. That taken together with her unbelievable comment about Russia and Alaska during the campaign make me question her intelligence. Even children who pay attention in school knew she was wrong. Palin is taking advantage of her appeal to a great deal of people, and rightfully so, but she needs to hit the books instead of touring around and speaking about things she doesn't understand.

He dodges the tough questions in the few press conferences with his long winded non answers. He does town halls with hand picked participants. He was never challenged by the press in the two years leading up to the election - no microscope of any intence variety - or since. The double standard is in full force. No, he may be a great professor/lecturer, but there really does nit appear to be too much capacity beyond the book knowledge...nothing practical to prepare and educate for leadership and practical application of supposed intelligence.

Total BS. Obama has proven the ability to deliver a great speech via TelePrompTer. Beyond that, he has proven nothing to "everyone". He picks and chooses his interviews to ensure friendly confines. He dodges the tough questions in the few press conferences with his long winded non answers. He does town halls with hand picked participants. He was never challenged by the press in the two years leading up to the election - no microscope of any intence variety - or since. The double standard is in full force. No, he may be a great professor/lecturer, but there really does nit appear to be too much capacity beyond the book knowledge...nothing practical to prepare and educate for leadership and practical application of supposed intelligence.

Sure, let's elect this dizzy broad who can't even finish one job in elected office, and have her finger on the nuclear button. This hypocrite, with the out-of-wedlock birth to her daughter and a husband who's a anti-American Alaskan secessionist has just zero relevance or credibility.

When Palin resigned her governorship, she and her husband and her administration were being investigated for criminal abuses of power.

That's why she quit. She can't take the heat and would screw up our foreign policy worse than even the Puppet and Goebbels managed to do.

She would be *the* dream opponent for Obama. The woman is afraid to be assessed by the public. She gives out soundbites on Facebook, yet is unable and shaking in fear even thinking of speaking to a single reporter outside of Glenn the Nazi Freak.

Tell us how Alaskans protect us from Russia by "looking out their kitchen windows every morning", Sarah. You betcha.

EVERYBODY has misspoken. The truly ignorant stick their tongues out, but hide behind Daddy's Man Pants.

Woman up, Sarah. Time to put your woman skirt. You don't want to end up like Tom Delay, another criminal politician with a big stupid mouth like Woman Skirt.

Sarah Palin is a running scared little coward who is afraid to face the press. She is afraid to answer a question coming from anyone but a paid shill for Rupert Murdoch, and even then she makes a fool of herself. She's running scared and hiding behind Twitter and Facebook like a quivering little weasel.

Palin tries to use insults and innuendo to cover up the fact that she is afriad that the press will expose her rank stupidity and lack of any knowlege on any subject. Sarah Palin has combined ignorance and a lack of any work to learn about world events with fear and cowardice. She has no leadership skills of any kind and is boorish nitwit.

Palin could not get elected to dog catcher in Alaska.

How true that Palin isn't bright enough to use a teleprompter! She would do EXACTLY that! Hilarious, "kingpenn1"!!! I can just see her reading the action clues!

Actually, every intelligent public TV speech-giver has used a teleprompter since the time it was invented. Did Bush EVER catch on?? I don't think so. I did say the person had to be intelligent! That's the clue, right there! Plus, the person has to be able to READ!

The Palin a$$-ki$$ers keep making their remarks about Obama using a teleprompter, as if it's a bad thing, which just goes to prove their ignorance. Course, the grammar and sentence structure in most of their posts already describe them as highschool dropouts! They do a good memorization of the Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh,(et al), scripts though, so they can memorize almost as well as their airhead. Ahh, well! They need someone to feel equal to, I suppose. They are defending her ignorance every day since she has never come up with anything "brilliant" they could brag about!

From the WSJ Sep 23, 2009:
Sarah Palin was pounded by the media as a foreign-policy novice during last year's presidential campaign. But when it comes to the U.S. approach toward China, she has ideas worth listening to.
"Twenty years ago, many believed that as China liberalized its economy, greater political freedom would naturally follow," the former Alaska governor and Republican nominee for the vice presidency told a Hong Kong audience yesterday. "Unfortunately that has not come to pass."
Mrs. Palin sees China's authoritarian nature as a security concern for the U.S. and its allies in Asia-Pacific, and she has a point. North Korea, Burma and other rogue regimes couldn't sustain themselves without Chinese support. Not to mention the hundreds of missiles Beijing has pointed at Taiwan and its navy's increasingly muscular attitude in the South China Sea. "How many books and articles have been written about the dangers of India's rise?" she asked.
The solution, she argues, is to encourage political change from within China,a movement that regained momentum last year with the launch of Charter 08, a democratic manifesto.
Such developments, she argued, are in everyone's interest. "The more politically open and just China is, the more Chinese citizens of every ethnicity will settle disputes in courts rather than on the streets," she said. The more open China is, "the less we will be concerned about its military buildup and intentions."
Mrs. Palin also espoused the value of alliances with like-minded democratic countries in the region such as Japan, Australia and India. The U.S. "can, must and should" work with China to address issues of "mutual concern," she said. "But we also need to work with our allies in addressing the uncertainties created by China's rise."
The Obama Administration could take a page from this book. So far, the White House has gone out of its way to downplay human rights in China and tiptoe around recent crackdowns in Tibet and Xinjiang, preferring to focus on hipper issues like climate change. This "don't ask, don't tell" approach to Beijing does no favors to the Chinese people, much less to the West's core interests in Asia. At the same time, America's other alliances in the region have been largely ignored.
Mrs. Palin also made a timely call against trade protectionism,an issue that will be high on the U.S.-China agenda this week at the Group of 20 meeting in Pittsburgh. She spoke up for the U.S.-South Korea free trade agreement, now stalled in the U.S. Congress. She also called the Obama Administration's decision to slap a 35% duty on Chinese tires a "mistake," while adding that China needed to respect intellectual property rights and "improve its rule of law." Again, she made the connection with human-rights: "Our economic relationship will truly thrive when Chinese citizens and foreign corporations can hold the Chinese government accountable."

All of us can improve in our sense of geography, we can travel, learn a foreign language and think outside out little houses, villages, etc. We can pretend that, We are Number One, but, in the quiet of the evening...we can look inward and do some self education.

Palin recently made an error that was far more revealing than her mixup on North Korea-South Korea. She criticized the Obama Administration for trying to convince the Chinese government to stop manipulating its currency. (The Chinese use various tricks to keep the Renminbi artificially lower than the U.S. dollar, which is why their exports to the U.S. are so cheap; this has has a devastating effect on U.S. manufacturing.)Palin cited this as an example of government meddling in the private sector. Not only does that not make any sense, but she apparently was ignorant of the fact that Bush's Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, tried to do exactly the same thing. This woman is simply too stupid and uninformed to hold high office.

After two years, here is the one thing I have noticed about the Obamabots (an "Obamabot, for those who missed my initial post is a mindless, unthinking automoton programmed to support and defend Barak Obama without regard to fact, logic or reason) is that they can vigorously attack critics of Obameh without never offering any actual defense of Obameh. Governor Palin has made gaffes, something that continues to rile the Obots as they carry on with their blather about her "stupidity" or "ignorance." That said, they look away at the gaffes caused by Obameh, a Harvard scholar and all-around messiah for the poor and inflicted. Gaffes like the aforementioned 57 states; or his inability to pronounce words such as corpsmen, Taliban or Pakistan; of course, my favorite Obameh gaffe ocurred during the Great Ones's first European trip when he mentioned something about the Austrian language. Of course, we all know that Austrians speak German. Right?

I guess the difference is, when the press picks up on the occasional Obama gaffe, he doesn't list Sarah Palin's numerous gaffes on his Facebook page.

Remember these (and they were from her prepared speeches)?

"And perhaps it was destiny that the man who went to California's Eureka College would become so woven within and interlinked to the Golden State."

(There is no Eureka College in California. It's in Illinois)

In another speech to a California audience, Palin proclaimed she was "delighted to be in a state that puts a mama grizzly on its flag".

(The bear on California's flag was a male. He was captured for William Randolph Hearst's menagerie, and Hearst donated him to the San Francisco Zoo, where he was given the name of Monarch, after the San Francisco Examiner - "the Monarch of the Dailies").

Politicians mis-speak sometimes. Not because they don't know the subject, but because it comes out wrong. Everyone up here has done it.

Here is the problem. We don't let it slide. The massive blowback to a John Kerry joke a few years back was incredibly cynical (I'm pretty sure those crying foul with Palin now were among the people that went after Kerry with a vengeance). We now attempt to hold every politician accountable to every minor speaking error.

I don't believe Palin is confused about the Koreas. Not for a moment. This should be a non-story -- as Kerry's joke should have been a few years ago. Its petty stuff.

But what is important is Palin's response. it is petty and immature. Got no issue with something she said that came out wrong. It happens to everyone. But to respond as she has tells me about her lack of character.

As for Obama -- the Great Orator and Great Uniter and Great uhh-uhh-uhh-Articulator and all that silly nonsense -- his gaffes are countless.

Besides the ones Palin singles out, let's not forget some of these classics:

"Corpse-men" -- Barack Hussein Obama

Who's the hack who tries to enter the White House through a window? Barack Hussein Obama.

Who's the hack who gives wrong-region DVDs as a "gift" to the British PM? Barack Hussein Obama.

Who's the hack who gives Her Majesty the Queen of England an iPod loaded with his own worthless windbag speeches? That would be Barack Hussein Obama.

Who's the hack who never misses a chance to kowtow before foreign dignitaries (but only if they're not solid US allies) in a nauseating display of ostentatious servility that's outside the realm of decorum and behavioral propriety expected of a US President? Three guesses.

Who's the hack who rambles on and on and on for close to 20 minutes in response to a woman telling him "I am overtaxed"? That would be Barry Hussein Obama as well.

There are so many more instances, but that'll do for now.

The above clip of Biden telling a wheel-chair bound politician to "stand up" and be recognized is a gaffe. Sure, it was an error, but unlike Palin's mis-speaking and saying north when she meant south, Biden thought the guy could stand.

Of course, what makes people laugh at Biden is the same thing that makes them laugh at Palin -- regular people don't belong in leadership.

That's essentially what Barbara Bush was saying about Palin too, because he own boy Dubya had less experience in politics than Palin when he won the party nomination.

The "57 state" gaffe was indeed a slip of the tongue on Obama's part. It happens to all human beings from time to time. The same is true about Palin's "North Korea" gaffe. I think the difference lies in how we perceive the both of them. Obama is seen as knowledgeable and intelligent. It's therefore easier to dismiss his gaffe as an honest mistake. Palin unfortunately seems to have the reputation of being ignorant and a dunce. It's easier for us to therefore conclude that she actually meant what she said.

So, during a Palin presidency we could expect Pres. Palin to be too busy insulting her detractors and justifying her stupidity to actually get anything done.

What happened to "whoops, yeah, I goofed?" That would show strength of character and a sense of responsibility -- neither of which this manifestation of meanness possesses.

As I understood it, the 57 states thing referred to the fact that Obama visited some states multiple times.

Also, as I understand it, Palin doesn't write her Facebook rants. Why would anyone believe she does given that she can't communicate as well when she speaks? She can list all these real or imagined gaffes from other people... but she can't remember that North Korea isn't our friend.

Palin's ignorance has been well-documented, but as a Democrat who shudders at the thought of this country being stupid enough to elect her to anything, let alone the presidency, I think this "gaffe" is totally overblown. She obviously mis-spoke, as so many other people do, and it is *not* an indication of anything, in my opinion. Much more telling are her carefully considered statements that are poorly or completely unreasoned, and reveal her total lack of knowledge, both historical and current.

You liked President Carter? Ok, but remember the buzz around the country near the end of his term was that the job of President was getting too big for any one man and we should consider splitting up the job. I was living in NYC at that time. I remember the gas lines from the oil embargo, inflation at well over 10%, and so on. Actually I was hopeful that President Carter could deliver on his promises. The Iran conflict came about because President Carter handled the conflict so poorly. Sorry if you get the impression that this was meant as hateful, but I do not think he did a good job. My point was and is that President Carter was a highly intelligent and a good man. But that did not make for a good President. If you see hate is this, sorry but that is not what is meant. I do mean however to be able to criticize and I do not see this as hateful. I do see your comments as manipulative, however.

When President Carter left office in 1981, the budget was almost balanced for the first time in many years. It only took Reagan one year to reverse the trend. When President Carter left office, all American hostages in Iran were released. Nnot one was killed. Negotiations may take time, but the end results often prove their worth. Had we not been quite so hasty with Iraq, the end results may be vastly different than what we are seeing today and our own economy would be much stronger. Perhaps global terrorism would not be as bad as it is. Remember, the people who dislike President Carter are also the ones who love to fight wars without tax money. These are the same people who do not understand that normal interest rates today would be in the stratosphere had the Fed not gone to oblvion on interest rates to try to save Bush's fanny. I am sure that the people who complain about Jimmy Carter love the interest rates they are getting on their CDs. Under Carter, there was a two-year period that I received more interests on CDs than I was paying out on a house mortgage. The old misery index which coupled interest rates with inflation has been replaced with a misery index which shows us that zero is also bad.

For someone to even mention Jimmy Carter in this column just goes to show how much hatred some people have even after 30 years. I use the word "hatred" only because the tone is clearly offensive and not meant to enlighten.

I am reminded my some of the over the edge comments on here how polarized we are.

I would just like to say that there are times when dignity requires no response, especially if one has to strike out against someone that never lifted a finger to attack one.

I agree with those who say that Palin's knee-jerk reactions are very unseemly and not well suited for a POTUS. In reality, Sarah is telling us that she is one card short of a full deck each time she opens her mouth.

Those who continue to lodge their hate speech toward Obama only show how ignorant they really are and how jealous they are that someone so smart actually became President. Perhaps some of President Bush's recent comments about the events of the day will rub off on these people. It has to be hard to be a Republican today. On one hand you almost have to worship the former President who remained in the upper 20s to low 30s in popularity for almost all of his second term while trying to dismember the current President who was given a "country" stuck in the ditch and fighting two wars and a considerable popular vote by any recent election standards. I feel proud whenver I hear President Obama speak. Let's face it, he can always manage to find the right words even when he has no notes or teleprompters. Poor Bush, he was lost without notes or teleprompters within about two minutes. Bush almost made it a point to speak in front of a military backdrop even though he was rarely found near a military base when he was in the national guard.

Does anyone outside of Palin's relatively small group of smitten followers honestly believe that she is competent to act as an expert on Korean policy? That she knows the intricacies and risks of engaging with the North Koreans? That she understands the possible leadership struggle going on there? Do you think she has the first clue about the history of Korea over the last century? Do you think she's ever heard of Syngman Rhee, the Bodo League massacre, the Battle of Inchon, or National Security Council Report 68, or that she knows about the decades of Japanese rule in Korea? Do you think she's ever read about the role the propaganda efforts of the post-Stalin Soviet government played in the eventual armistice that ended the fighting?

Doubtful, at best.

Now, do you doubt for a second that Joe Biden could reel off a dissertation-level analysis of these issues from the top of his head?

That's the real story about the Palin flub about North Korea that the media isn't covering. It's not that she misspoke, but that anyone cared what she had to say on the issue in the first place.

Sarah Palin, with her reliance on spouting talking points, simplistic approach to issues and complete lack of experience beyond a half term as governor of a state the size of Columbus, Ohio, is not competent to be discussing North Korea. And shame on any media outlet that treats her opinions as if they're worth anything.

The real damning Palin quote in the Beck interview is the one in which she worries if "the White House is gonna come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea's gonna do." Putting aside her usual butchering of the English language, she takes a complicated problem facing the United States (and the world) and reduces it to a talking-point political attack on the president.

Her comment reveals that she has no understanding that we are dealing with a North Korean leadership that may not be rational and may even be self-destructive. And one with the firepower to kill legions of South Korean civilians. To her simplistic, politics-driven approach, it's only about how the Democratic president isn't tough enough. (As an aside, she is talking about a president who has increased troops in Afghanistan, stepped up drone attacks on the enemy, and taken out more Taliban and al Qaeda leaders than George W. Bush ever did, but I digress... )

She recklessly portrays the North Korea crisis as one that is simple and only requires American strength, when, in reality, it is a difficult-to-solve issue fraught with danger. It is complicated and nuanced, and one wrong move could lead to an attack on Seoul.

I wonder if Palin would be so cavalier in her approach if North Korea's missiles could reach Anchorage, Dallas or some other city in Real America?

And this person wants to be president? It's a joke.

The last I checked, neither Barack Obama nor Joe Biden personally attacked Sarah Palin over the North Korea misspeak. Yet, she has chosen to personally attack them. She is so afraid that we will eventually remind the little highness that she was once for the bridge to nowhere before she wasn't. She is the one that kept bringing up the Billy Ayers connection with Obama even though Obama never knew the man during the events about which she was trying to make a linkage.

We should be reminded how Todd Palin is for an independent country of Alaska and that Sarah Palin once was a featured speaker before the Alaska separatist group.

No country would ever invade Canada because it borders the US and the US would not permit it. If Canada did not have the US as its protector Iran could invade it in the morning and start setting up mosques by lunch time. So again, it does not matter what Canadians think of Sarah Palin.

I know Barry is, I know Dubbya wasn't, and I no Palin is lazy - unless she is getting her picture on some website or a pile of cash for her efforts - and if she thinks that she is qualified to set foriegn policy because Alaska is close to Russia, well then I have my doubts about the value of her grey matter.

But the Biden and Obama gaffes all get attention too, or she wouldn't be able to easily pull up links to them, would she? There is no double standard -- the media is amused by little slips of the tongue and it reports them.

The big deal is not what she said, which I found amusing and like you considered to be a little slip of the tongue as many others normally make. The big deal is her reaction. And her reactions are why attention is paid to her gaffes. I remember Reagan making many gaffes. He would laugh them off, as Obama laughs his off. Gaffes happen, Palin's be ignored as though they did not happen. They are not to be pointed out because that makes her angry. One needs to know little more about her to know that she should never be given any power of government.

When I was a small child attending a Catholic school a nun once told me a valuable lesson. She said; "If you were speeding and while speeding another car passed you, going faster of course, then a minute later the police come up, turn on their lights and pull you over, would you:
A) admit you were speeding and accept the blame?
B) lie and deny you were speeding?
C) say that the person who passed you was going even faster, and thus your little bit of speeding should not be punished?

Sarah would answer C it seems since the gaffe's of others excuses her own. And, from what I have read of her over the years, I think she is capable of B. But A is not within her ability. Owning up to anything she considers adverse or embarrassing is just not within her. I thought she had grown a bit over the last year when she would just laugh these things off, but it seems you really cannot teach an old dog new tricks.

What is all this fly-swatting about whether or not Palin said this or that? As a would-be presidential candidate, she should set forth, in depth, her views of the 60 year involvement of the U.S. in the Korean peninsula, why it went to war in 1950, the relevance of that decision now, what needs to be addressed at this point,and perhaps even the role the U.S. is to play in all of East Asia. She, or anyone else who aspires to lead this great country, should be historically literate, should speak in complete sentences, and should not be given to instant sound bites which mean little or nothing. Let's elevate the whole level of political discourse back to where it used to be. Governing our country is not a sport where winning is everything(as the sports commentator Limbaugh would have it), but a job requiring a skill-set and a good mind.

WASHINGTON – The White House says President Barack Obama has received 12 stitches in his lip after being hit during a pick up basketball game.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says the president was inadvertently struck by someone's elbow Friday.

The president received the stitches in the doctor's office on the ground floor of the White House. Obama had traveled to Fort McNair with a group of family and friends for an early morning game of basketball.

Obama is a sports fan, roots for his hometown Chicago teams and has often gone golfing in addition to playing basketball.

Wow.  Once again, Palin shows an inability to take responsibility for her own mistakes and shortcomings, and instead shows a need to seek out a scapegoat.

I suspect that Palin actually realizes that we are allied with South Korea and at odds with North Korea, but she only appears to understand the distinction and history of the two nations at an extremely superficial level -- South Korea are the "good guys" and North Korea are the "bad guys" -- and therefore she can easily get the two confused.

If someone were to ask her to explain the historical significance of the 38th parallel, it would be a sure bet that you would see that familiar "deer in the headlights" look for which Sarah is so famous.

Palin has repeatedly demonstrated an inability for cogent, rational, substantive extemporaneous speaking, largely the result of her brain being on auto-pilot as she relies almost exclusively on memorized shallow, often snarky talking points during her speeches and (exclusively softball) interviews.

Bottom line. Palin won't waste her time with any interviewer who will not guarantee
1) advanced screening of all questions
2) no followup questions without her realtime permission.

If you look more closely at Palin's tongue slide, you will notice a few disturbing things. First, Palin is not a listener so even though she had made a similar correct reference a few minutes before, her mind had already wandered away to Tealalaland. Also, Palin tries to communicate in short phrases that can turn into bumper stickers so there was no doubt that her gaffe was more about her distracted attention than her acumen. Furthermore, the oxygen level could have been low with two oxygen thieves in the same room.

Let's give it a rest. I'm not Palin fan (she is merely a person of average intelligence and above average ambition) but a gaffe is a gaffe and a slip of the tongue is a slip of the tongue. The Obama "57 states" comment was just like the Palin "North Korean allies" comment - slips of the tongue where the speaker did not realize what she/he said.

A gaffe, on the other hand, if used properly - describes a clear mistake in fact or logic that is expressed knowingly.

Just reading the liberals' comments in this forum is enough to determine the severe schizophrenia which Palin has driven the left to. And if that is not enough, watch them in the last two weeks.

I know for a fact about 2 or 3 regular liberal commenters in these forums develop about 20 different screennames each. That was weird enough.

But, after the N. Korea gaffe, liberals posted about it on youtube over 300 times when it was clear she knew the difference as moments before, she was talking about toughening the sanctions with N. Korea. Why would we toughen sanctions with an ally?

The liberals begin with the narrative that she's an idiot based on what was a clear innocent slip. Then when Palin responds by showing just how awful Obama is at gaffes (not to mention Biden), then they shift her from: "she's an idiot" to "she's a mean-girl!"

Liberals are like children that way. And logic betrays children all the time. Now, logic to most normal Americans allows them to easily discern that Palin was more qualified than Obama ever was (as is showing by his horrible and embarrassing Presidency). It also allows us to understand Palin aligns more with the average American's positions than Obama does. It also allows us to understand that more independents are more ticked right now at the President than they disapprove of Sarah Palin. (This is why all the important battleground states went overwhelmingly for the GOP in this last mid-term).

Bottom line: Liberals will always say that Sarah Palin is a dope. But all normal Americans are slowly realizing day by day that "The Dope" has duped the left more times than they will ever care to admit. Because of this, Palin will win in 2012 and their party is at rock-bottom demise right now.

Every day in the WP there are three to five or more stories on Palin. She is a gift to the employment market for liberal so-called journalists. None of the stories are newsworthy, of course, but these morons keep writing about them. How many stories were there on every aspect of Dancing with the stars? Does anyone with an IQ in the triple digits watch that show? There were even several stories - I'm not making this up- on one of the Palin Children who used the term "so gay" in a tweet or posting. This obsession by the left -in particular aging women writers- is truly bizarre. It is undoubtedly driven in part by the now almost universal recognition that we made a big mistake electing Obama who is probably not more qualified to be President than Palin is. It is a handy distraction from the many serious issues where a media person would actually have to use their brain to analyze. Most of all is gives the angry left an opportunity to vent their endless rage. These people, like many of the posters in here, don't see how silly and stupid it makes them look to elevate this lightweight who will never be President. Palin invaluably makes fools of all her critics and exposes them for being so oblivious to reality they don't communicate, they just emit spittle. Priceless.

Since Ms. Palin, briefly the Governor of Alaska, takes to the "lamestream" media to so often play tit-for-tat, I have a question to which I hope she will respond:

During Ms. Palin's last pregnancy, her water broke at the National Governor's Conference in Texas. As this was her fifth child, and a high-risk pregnancy due to her age and the fact that she was carrying a child with Down's Syndrome, Ms. Palin should have immediately headed to a hospital. Instead, she boarded a flight with her husband, said nothing to the flight crew, and chose to fly home so that she could have her child "in Alaska."

This was the most selfish decision a person and a mother could make. She could have gone into full labor after reaching cruising altitude, making an emergency landing necessary; however, it would have required dumping fuel and descending - taking at least 45 minutes to an hour or more. In the event the delivery began on the aircraft, all sorts of things can go wrong with the mother, the baby or both.

So, the brilliant, thoughtful Ms. Palin decided to put at risk her baby, herself and the passengers - all to have the baby in Alaska. This has been well documented and was discussed in the press prior to her being chosen as McCain's running mate. To me, this incredibly poor decision tells me all I need to know about Ms.Palin.

She is clueless and self-centered and, as Barbara Bush stated so well, "should stay in Alaska."

The difference is that with an Obama gaffe, the assumption is that the misstaement is just that, a misstatement. With Palin, it is assumed she has just memorized her attack lines and when she misspeaks we are getting a real glimpse into what she knows, or rather does not know.

The best thing that ever happened to Sarah Palin was McCain's loss. She lives on, and doesn't have to carry negative baggage from a dismal one-term McCain presidency, that would have advanced the slow death by a thousand paper cuts policies of the moderate progressive GW Bush.

Palin's defining political moment up to this point was her decision to walk out on the voters of Alaska.
The timing of that decision, the aim of which was to cash-in on the exposure she received during the campaign, was one of striking-while-the-iron-is-hot.
Today the Palin family is wealthy. Sarah has exploited any and every issue in the public mind that would keep the cash flowing, including her children.
But, to date, her "I quit" moment remains her only political move of any importance. All else has been a long-running cartoon version of life in America according to Sarah - er, that is rather, according to what Sarah thinks will generate more cash flow.
So, for better or worse, there goes Sarah: wealthier than she ever dreamed she would be until she became a twinkle in John McCain's eye. That she chose the bottom-feeding method to accumulate her wealth is sad but at least it can be said she's no crook like Bernie Madoff - I repeat - at least. Bernie, as I remember, did not throw his family to the "dogs" in his quest for lucre.
Given all that Sarah is and does, perhaps the greater tragedy is that there are so many who, lemming-like, jump and cheer when Sarah speaks while she smiles and thinks "Yessireebob, there's a sucker born every minute!"

Saying there are 57 states is not the same as stating that North Korea is an ally, especially in a scripted interview. Educated individuals realize that Obama's gaffe was one of brevity, there are 57 states, and other entities that determine the presidential nominee at convention. Let's not forget President Ford's epic debate gaffe when he said that Poland wasn't under Soviet influence. Or then Sen. Allen's calling a Webb campaign aide a Macacca.

The GOP establishment hates her because she is an actual conservative.
The GOP leadership/establishment are moderate progressives.
It was the progressive George H W Bush, who coined the term "voodoo economics" to characterize (candidate) Reagan's agenda of tax cuts, and easing regulations.
How did that work out?
It turned out to be such a failure, that most of the distressed economies of the world are turning to those exact policies today, to save themselves.

I think we've heard enough out of the GOP establishment.

If the choices are Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty, or any of the rest of the "top tier" class of RINOs, it's Palin all the way.
If you GOP idiots don't want her as president, you had better start making some room on your bus for some actual conservatives, because there aren't any on the horizon right now. They guys you're pushing are the same old tired moderate progressives that helped get us in to this shape.

She should also kiss his elderly bum for allowing her the opportunity to cash in and make MILLIONS of $$$ on the back of this supposed fame. Every great country has a time when folks like SP are allowed to flourish by filling an enormous gap in party politics. The Republicans were so bereft of talent going into 2008 (after being thumped in 2006 and with the GWB record-low approval ratings) that McCain felt his only choice was SP.

I agree with the post by ged0386. Sarah Palin is not even partially qualified to lead our nation. She is simply an uninformed, navie politician who should retire in Alaska and stop making public appearances that do not warrant the attention of any informed citizen. For example, in a recent statement/post by Sarah, she was critical of the Fed's new policy to buy back treasuries because, according to her, would result in high inflation. When she made this statement, inflation was running only 1.1% for the year. After she made this comment, I decided to conduct a background search to see what basis she would make such an uninformed comment and found that she took 5-6 years to obatin her college education in communications. Based on her background and resignation as Alaska's governor, it has become apparent that she also lacks confidence in her qualification to lead anything by her reckless daughters. Does she understand econcomies? Absolutely not. Has she ever read Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, in which he developed the early theories of supply and demand? Or does she understand the theories of fiscal policy as developed by John Maynard Keynes? She obviously has not studied Milton Friedman's monetary theories. Does she understand the impact that the supply of money has on the economy, especially consumer spending and loans to small businesses. Does she understand that our economy is generaly healthy when infaltion and unemploymnet rates are about equal(e.g., 3%- 5%). I think the answer to all these questions is NO!. Is she qualified in international politics or economics? No. So where are her strengths? She is often critical of others' policies or statements, but does she ever often a definitive recommendation to fix anything. No. Therefore, I can only conclude that she enjoys sitting on the sidelines and complain about everything. God help us if she is ever elected to another public post. I, for one, will leave our great country. So I say to Sarah, stay in Alaska and out of the rest of our great country.

The GOP establishment hates her because she is an actual conservative.
The GOP leadership/establishment are moderate progressives.
It was the progressive George H W Bush, who coined the term "voodoo economics" to characterize (candidate) Reagan's agenda of tax cuts, and easing regulations.
How did that work out?
It turned out to be such a failure, that most of the distressed economies of the world are turning to those exact policies today, to save themselves.

I think we've heard enough out of the GOP establishment.

If the choices are Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty, or any of the rest of the "top tier" class of RINOs, it's Palin all the way.
If you GOP idiots don't want her as president, you had better start making some room on your bus for some actual conservatives, because there aren't any on the horizon right now. They guys you're pushing are the same old tired moderate progressives that helped get us in to this shape.
If you don't change, I will help destroy you, and reduce you to a minority third-party. And there are a lot of people with me.

A gaffe is a "gaffe", and then their is Palin's ignorance of history, ignorance of geography overall, and her ignorance on Domestic and Foreign policies.

Further more, why does Palin the "bone head" feel a need to defend and justify her ignorance on every little thing and with every move that she tries to make, and then turns around each and every time and points her little scrawny finger at other people's gaffes, the lame stream media, and other people using tweet's, face book postings, and books written by ghost writers.

Palin, "see, he did it too".

The number of times that you do it Palin is in no comparison to Obama or Biden. Neither can your intelligence compare to theirs.

If you are all of that and a piece of cake, Palin, then why don't you stop making excuses, stop using tweets, stop with the face book postings, stop taking "swipes" at every thing and everybody in the whole damn world for your own ignorance, and stand up like a mature adult woman, or get the hell out of our faces and go home like B. Bush told you to.

You are NO Grizzly Bear Palin.

You are an ignorant, immature, and insecure childish person in a grown woman's body, who so desperately wants to be leader of the free world.

Those who point out that Obama has not responded as has Palin miss one principal distinction: Palin is not President and Obama is. There are restrictions on what a sitting President can say that simply do not apply to non-Presidents.

Case in point: GWB never, ever responded to the contempt, bitterness or vitriol shown by his critics with more of the same. We expect more of Presidents, and that's a function of the office, not the party. If you ascribe Obama's failure to retort on Facebook to his supposed intelligence, his supposed good character, or the supposed political virtue of his party, you miss the boat entirely. And play beautifully into exactly what Palin is criticizing.

Y'know, for people with the conceit that they are more intelligent than the opposition, Democrats, liberals and the media are actually kind of slow.

This woman is constantly making mistakes - then blaming others instead of taking responsibility for them. She still blames Katy Couric for that embarrassing interview instead of admitting and learning from it.

It amazes me that anyone takes her seriously and would even consider her for president. She is as polarizing as they come, she has made a fortune by driving a wedge between the Americn people. She never offers-up viable solutions to our country's problems, instead points fingers and tries to blame others. She quit on Alaskans to peddle her book, "Going Rogue." The definition of Rouge fits her perfectly: a worthless and unprincipled person. In her books she is aways lashing out at those who disagree with her or who have brought her shortcomings to light. Even disrespecting the Firt Lady.

This woman should be writing commentary for the National Inquirer, that's the level she is on. She's a gossipy adolescent school girl at best.

She has no class what-so-ever. You never hear Obama, or even Bush lash out on a tabloid level as Palin does. She has no integrity and she is not presidential material.

Please, stop the senseless bashing of this woman for an occasional (OK maybe more than occasional) misstatement; she is in her glory and will continue to use the platforms she creates (her "books") and those given to her (Fox News) to advance her own personal and political agenda. She relishes the criticism because it gives her an opporunity to bash right back and get some more face time. Notice how quickly she countered Barbara Bush's criticism of her by classifying Barbara as a "blueblood" emphasizing her populist roots and taking a shot at the political establishment in the process.

She will stop herself as she will repeat, over and over, a lot of the nonsense upon which her political opinons are based. I was going to say political philosophy but it should be apparent to anyone she has no idea of what that might be other than the mindless talking and spin points she is being fed by her handlers.

The more time we spend reading opportunistic media criticism of Sarah from Wassila the less time and attention we have for the really important stuff.

It will not be some simple slips of the tongue which do her in; it will be just how out of her depth she is and what a diaster having someone who is so shallow in the Oval Office and required to make life and death decisions for the nation. No matter how shallow our citizenry has become on a steady dose of American Idol, the Kardashians and The Jersey Shore the voting public will reject her, likely in the Republican primaries where those in her own party will make sure the nation sees how unqualified she is to hold office.

LONDON -- The Tea Party movement's recent electoral gains have gotten international attention, including in the mother country whose taxes inspired the first Tea Party -- the United Kingdom.

A new rebellion against big government and high taxes is resonating in Ye Olde England.

"Ideas around limited government, absolutely, there's lots of people in Britain who share those as well." says Matthew Sinclair of the Taxpayers' Alliance. The group -- formed in 2004, naturally calling for lower taxes -- is one of the largest in Britain with a Tea Party slant. It boasts some 60,000 supporters.

The group organized workshops this past fall with FreedomWorks and other American Tea Party support groups. "We're always trying to learn how to campaign better. We're always trying to learn if there are policy initiatives in the states which have succeeded," Sinclair explains.

The media love it when Palin makes a slip of the tongue because it supports, they believe, their ongoing meme that Republicans and conservatives are knuckle-dragging idiots. For the same reason, slips by Obama and Biden do not, and so are downplayed. Where are the late night comics making Barry out to be an arrant fool for referring to the "57 states"?

In truth, these are simple slips of the tongue on both sides. But Palin is dead on in asking for consistency from the media.

Not that the media and Dems care, but this kind of contempt fits beautifully into her cultural critique. Huge numbers of people, including me, agree with her on that point. She is using you all as a foil, and she is doing so expertly.

Interestingly, President Obama has not attacked, or even mentioned, Ms. Palin's gaffes. But Ms. Palin's basic personality requires that she attack the President for something she created. Her not infrequently displaced attacks on the President say at least as much about her as the President's restraint does about him.

This is akin to Reagan's reaction to the media's constant characterization of him as an old, senile, idiot who would probably end up getting us nuked by the Soviets.
The occasion that comes to mind was during the Reagan-Mondale debate, when one of the lefty-hack moderators of the day posed this question;

" Mr. President, I want to raise an issue that I think has been lurking out there for two or three weeks, and cast it specifically in national security terms. You already are the oldest President in history, and some of your staff say you were tired after your most recent encounter with Mr. Mondale. I recall, yes, that President Kennedy, who had to go for days on end with very little sleep during the Cuba missile crisis. Is there any doubt in your mind that you would be able to function in such circumstances?"

Reagan used the opportunity to take a shot at the idiots in the media who had berated him for four years, making his mark as a president who wasn't afraid to call out these people making false charges against him.

Couple that with the fact that Sarah Palin is receiving the same treatment from the establishment of her own party, that they gave Reagan thirty years ago, and you have to come to the conclusion that Sarah Palin will be the Reagan we must have next, to reverse the damage done by the Carter-on-steroids in office now.

History often repeats itself, and it must this time, if we are to survive as a nation.

She is good at playing politics but does that mean she will make a good leader? No. That means she knows how to become popular enough to be taken seriously. Its like republicans voted for bush, a person they knew was less than capable, then they criticize Obama for being inexperienced yet they are ready to support Sarah Palin. Their logic does not makes any sense. It just fluctuates to fit the political agenda. If Obama is not sharp and experienced enough for republicans to trust him how in the hell do they trust her when she shows even less experience or intelligence for the job. Sorry I just call it like I see it. Even if I were republican i could see this, stevie wonder can see it. She is not presidential material no matter how much exposure the media gives her. Now, we all know Obama was voted in more based on voter desperation for someone new with different ideas from our last president but that was based on our last president creating more problems than he was solving. Obama is not solving as many problems as we would like but he isn't making things worse either. So why would we lower out standards when the times or no worse than they were when Obama took over. Why would we go with a person who is just as political as the leader we have yet not as experienced at this point and definitely not as poised nor polished to handle the job. Im sorry folks. I know some of you dont like Obama and never will but at least you can take him seriously. I cant take Palin seriously. Why? Because she has no ideas. If you ran for vice prez in 08. Shouldn't you have an agenda to give to the people besides speeches and soundbites? You did that in 08.

Everyone above is completely missing the point.

Any and every politician who ever steps near a microphone occasionally makes blundering, incompetent misstatements--Obama, Palin, McCain, Clinton, Clinton, Pelosi, Bush 43, Bush 41, Reagan, Kennedy, Carter, Quayle, Kerry, Dukakis, Dole, O'Neill, you name 'em.

The question is, how much publicity does the mass media give to each respective statement? Did we hear about Palin's blunder from just the Beck interview, or was it repeated all over the place (it was, or we wouldn't have heard about it--we don't have THAT many Beck listeners out there)? Conversely, do we hear about Obama's gaffes, Pelosi's "we have to pass the bill so we can find out what's in it," etc. from the mass media or from right-wing blogs/shows?

This supposed "slip of the tongue" Is disturbing given Sarah Palin's past record of ignorance specifically on North and South Korea. In January of this year, newspapers and 60 Minutes were reporting on a new book quoting McCain staffers who were trying to prep Palin for television, calling her background a "train wreck" and stating that she did not know why North and South Korea were separate countries. Given that the region is now poised as an atomic tinderbox, the perilous next few months may well show that Palin is tragically ill equipped even to be a Fox commentator much less leader of the free world. Also worth noting: reports of this supposed "gaffe" are spreading like wildfire in the foreign press.

What a hilarious for the libtards? Suddenly, they have realized their "The ONE" messiah couldn't make gaffe at all. That is their belief. Once Sarah remind them about "The One"'s gaffe,they have to resort to the personal attack.

Actually, these libtards never want to discuss about the issues they disagree with Sarah Palin.

My only request is to all the libtards, start reading her books and discussing issues instead of attacking her characters.

I am sure you libtards believe in your heart that their "Messiah" couldn't communicate properly to the American people whatever heck he is trying to do for them. As a result, the DemoCrats are a big time loser in the last election.

I wish the MSM media would take a poll about the "Buyer remorse" about the Messiah. If the MSM is brave enough, they would have done this kind of long time ago. The MSM know very well that they would be completely amazed how they had been goofed up by the clown "Messiah".


Just wait for 2012. This clown "Messiah" would be out of the White House.

That's all I have to say now. I know they are many things to say about this clown.

Mofares, I agree with you on McCain. I respected the hell out of him as a politician (NO EARMARKS!!) and will always respect him as a war hero. But, I cannot understand his mindset when he picked Palin for VP. He lost his political instinct with that pick, he lost Independents with that pick, and he lost the election with that pick. He might have still lost with someone else as VP pick but it would have been much closer.

Palin should have ignored the criticism or just acknowledge the gaff rather than go on a defensive attacking. Obama would have simply acknowledged it then moved on.

We will never know if it was a slip of the tongue because Beck corrected her before she could correct herself.

Given that the people who were trying to get her elected claimed she didn't even know that Korea was split into two separate countries and the continued gaffes I think it is pretty safe to say she needs to brush-up on her geography, especially when it concerns our national security.

Obama's gaffe she refers to happened years ago so it is not fresh news like her gaffe yesterday, thus the reporting of it. Someone needs to explain that to her.

Also, not a comment can go by without her having to fire back or make up some baloney story (like she did on the "refudiate" gaffe.

When it comes to foreign policy , there are few politicians today with backgrounds. Obama doesn't have a background (Biden has it). Bush didn't have a background (his dad did). Palin doesn't have it. So why do they pretend they have it? Presidents hire experts who share their political beliefs.

Fox News needs to stop conferring lofted credentials on GOP hopefuls--to give them credibility. It's embarrassing when those guests start believing it themselves. Former governors can talk about their records. Former businessmen can talk about business and taxes. Former healthcare professionals can talk about the state of healthcare.

"Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Can you imagine how tiresome a Palin Presidency would be? She'd spend more time lashing out at others than anything else (just like she is now).

Who ever handles her is doing a terrible job of it. She sounds like a two year old, spoiled brat. It doesn't take much of an imagination to know how she would conduct herself in the White House. It would be an endless, thin skinned battle of he said, they said, and she said which always would make her look like the victim.

Funny. I've never admired anyone who tries to drag others down with them as their ship sinks. Maybe Sarah should "Man up" and move on.

A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States
by Sarah Palin on Thursday, November 25, 2010 at 5:46pm
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

Ugh! Sarah, sometimes less is more. "He did it too!" What you are doing is proving your own immaturity.

Why don't you go back to Alaska and slaughter a few more turkeys for you Thanksgiving holiday and stay out of the media for a while, kay? Thank you.

So, is she considering running for president, or 3rd grade class rep.?

I understand the point she is trying to make, and it's a good one, but pointing the finger and saying "he does it, too" doesn't come across as the most mature way of handling it. Especially when the person you choose to point your finger at is the person you'd likely be running against in the general election.

This has nothing to do with fairness, Beck-listening dolts. If you had this way, this woman would have her finger on the nuclear button, as we used to say. In a time of particular tension, such as we have these days with North Korea, I'd want a president who at least knew which side we were on. Come on: Your boy Bush called North Korea part of the axis of evil--the three most dangerous nations in the world--and she can't get it right?

Okay, so some people think she's the new Virgin Mother of Conservatism, but to the rest of us she's no longer cute or funny.

I am convinced Sarah Palin has serious mental issues. I know of no other politician who craves the spotlight like she does. She truly is not happy unless her name is in the news. What does the Tea Party see in her? She is wacko.

Thanks a lot, John McCain, for the gift that keeps on giving.

Obama is the worst President ever. Sarah Palin is much more intelligent than this clown obama. We would be out of this obama depression if Palin were President.

Palin's come back was fabulous. She took the medias' headline on her gaffe and shoved it right up their collective @#$%'s. I can see it now in the news rooms. "We can't let Palin get away with mocking us and our savior Obama." "We must act." They are having brain storming sessions as I type on how to put Palin in her place. Stay tuned.

Regardless of her verbal missteps, Sarah Palin is a moron.
