Heh heh heh …. little Ms. Change indeed.
Can we get a PHOTO of the $460,000 pedestrian pathway?
A reformer with results! teehee
two faced… scheming… deceptive… bald faced, shameless liar… she fits in perfectly with her party.
Nice! Yeah, we do need to get on this. Maybe one of the Enquirer fotogs can do it?
palin, she was for the bridge to nowhere before she was against it.
Some soulmate, huh? Drip…drip…drip.
The people of Wasilla, like all Americans, pay taxes.
Earmarks are a way for *elected* government officials to direct spending. If we got rid of earmarks, the money would simply continue along to the next branch of government- where the *unelected* executive branch officials (HHS, Interior, Homeland Security, etc) decide how the money is spent.
It is asinine to conclude that Palin is in the wrong for requesting tax dollars sent to DC from Wasilla be returned.
Tell that to John McCain. Actually, tell that to the Sarah Palin that's joined McCain on the ticket. I'm sure they'd be happy to hear it.
Wasilla gets far more tax dollars back than it ever sends. It's asinine for Palin to say she opposed earmarks when she clearly didn't.
Yes, Palin is in the wrong for requesting tax dollars sent to DC should be returned to Wasilla, just as it is wrong for every community that thinks all of its tax dollars should be spent locally. The quality of a community's infrastructure should correlate to its needs, not the clout of its representatives.
So, let me see. The tax payers sent over $1 million to Wasilla, while the state government gave every citizen $1,200 and has the largest surplus of the other 49 states? What is wrong with this picture?
Sarah Palin is a liar and a pig. No wonder the GOP establishment likes her so much.
So Caribou Barbie likes to spend, eh? Four More Years! Four More Years!
Let's bankrupt the country for good, shall we?
The GOP's mantra os “small government” is just a con job they bring up each election season. It dupes the ignorant into voting for them. The Federal Government grew far less under Clitnon/Gore than it has under Bush/Cheney. But when did facts matter to the GOP?
It's not that she went after earmarks, it's that she's being packaged as an anti-earmark reformer—a complete falsehood.
In fact, McCain, and Senator William Proxmire before him, whose act he sort of stole, often demonstrates the rule that ome man's earmark is another man's vitally important program: McCain, I hazily remember, labeled some breast cancer programs “pork” which Bush, running against him, made much of. That wasn't entirely fair either, because McCain had voted for other breast cancer programs, but that's politics the way Bush was playing them—-using the Rove guys that McCain is using now.
Gee, looks like it's predominately public works infrastructure. What a crime. Many if not most municipalities are in dire need of infrastructure improvements and kudos for the then-Mayor for knowing how to get things done. It is certainly a better use of money than most “earmarks” which you seem to equate with pork (studying bear shit or whatever).
How do you know it's Palin's handwriting? Where did the document come from?
Gee, it looks like the projects were largely public works/infrastructure improvements. What a crime. Many if not most municipalities are in dire need of infrastructure repair, maintenance and improvement. Just look at the east coast. Kudos to the then-mayor for understanding this and knowing how to get things done. It seems like you want to equate “earmarks” with pork. Repairing and improving infrastructure creates American jobs that cannot be exported and is a far cry from pork such as studying bear shit or some of the other infamous projects.
Is that you Lynn Samuelson? Those are names you call, not indictments you make. What a media dupe.
Unelected people should decide the details of spending in terms of particular projects. Otherwise, spending becomes based on media perception and winning people the vote, instead of spending the money effectively over the whole state/country in order to benefit the most people. Every cent that is spent on useless PR jobs like pedestrian paving is a cent that is not being spent on armor for the military, hospital funding, emergency services maintenance, scientific research, and a host of other more important things.
The value of a human life, used to calculate spending on medical care, is 50k dollars per year. So these paving projects cost about 30 years of people's lives in total, around the country. That's why earmarks are wrong.
With McCain and Palin it's all about change. Yup. Yup. Straight-talk Express my aunt's fanny! Do these people ever tell the truth? All she did was go out yesterday and lie straight-faced to the entire nation and the way some tell it you'd think she'd given the Gettysburg Address! I'll give her this much, she can lie boldly with the best of the Neocons.
Good to know the woman on the team can lie, steal and brainwash just like the guys on the R team can.
Who gives a damn about truth?
Let's just cut off our arms everyone!
Why? Because Sarah told us to!
The issue is not whether earmarks are good or bad, appropriate or inappropriate. The issue is whether or not Palin is really who she says claims to be. She claims to be a reformer and says that ending Earmarks is proof that she is a reformer. This is clearly a lie.
There is a similar issues regarding her having “traditional family values”. I for one do not care if a woman works or doesn't work, has a nanny or doesn't have one. It doesn't matter to me. But, I would think someone with “traditional family values” would want to stay at home with their infant child, or at least want to take a lesser role at work so that they can spend more time with their infant child. And, if someone wants to wear the moniker of “hockey mom”, then her skills at being a mother should be under review.
Based on what I've seen and heard so far, either she's lying or delusional.
The republican campaign chairman says the election is about personality not issues meaning:
Forget about your health careForget about the economy and job lossesForget about your sons and daughter in iraqForget about McCain voting with Bush over 90% of the time to mess up the economyForget about scholarships and student aidFor get about social securityForget about the banks that are failing. Forget about losing your homesForget about equal pay for womenForget about the fact that sarah palin cut health care funding for children in alaskaForget about renewable energy for the future…drill drill drillForget about bin laden in afghanistan, lets hope we get some oil in iraqForget about the fact that CINDY McCAIN has ties to an abortion facility in arizona (google)Forget about the fact that SARAH PALIN CALLED HILLARY A WHINNER.Forget about the fact that sarah is avoiding the press to answer questions on the issues.
Just keep your eyes on the OLD and the BEAUTIFUL
This scares me
In reference to the person who says that some comments here that people are trying to equate earmarks to pork spending. Where did we all get that idea? The Republican party that's were – How many times have Republican's used the word “earmark” as a big dirty smear? A heck of a lot of time.
You're right – earmarks aren't necessarily pork spending – but if Sarah is going to say she is against the “evil earmarks,” she's a hypocrite. If she was saying that she won't support spending that is wasteful and inefficient, then maybe she'd have a point. She should starting thinking (if she can).
Sarah is a Pit-Bull with Lipstick………..let's see she lied about the plane on E-Bay google if you don't believe me she loves ear-marks she full of hate just like bush yes if you select mccain and palin you will get 4 more yrs of hell……….I am a women and find Sarah to be very rude and crude
Palin is a liar, a phony and totally unqualified for any office.A person that would stand before millions and totally distort who she is andwhat she stands for is about as scary as they get.Any person who thinks global warming is not man made, that God wantedthe Iraq war and supports the new pipe lines, tries to have books bannedfrom libraries, cuts substantial funding for disadvantaged children, wantsreligion back in schools, fires anyone who disagrees with or does not obey'her, would sacrifice the welfare of her family for the sake of ambition,does not support birth control or sex education in schools, gives bountiesto those who hunt wolves, bears from helicopters and airplanes (for one bounty to be paid requires the presentation of a wolf's leg) has a lawsuit'because does not agree polar bears are nearing distinction, no woman'schoice, even in the case of rape, got 27 million in pork for her little town,supported bridge to no where until she found out it wouldn't fly, butkept the money and on and on and on CERTAINLY CANNOT BE IN ANYPOSITION OF RESPONSIBILITY for this great country of ours.ENOUGH!!
HILLARY THE BIGGEST NUMBER 1 earmark in senate , OBAMA GIVING EARMARK TO PRIVATE HOSpital so his wife make 300 K from earmark.
DEMOCRAPS THE BIGGEST EARMARK pelosi reid the king and queen earmark (corruption theft)
How is it earmark? This is budget report for city projects. Great job to design a headline like this! You did well.
I am by no means a Palin fan; I believe what she has done is not only degrading to women (anyone who says her gender had no effect on her being chosen is fooling themselves) but just as, if not more, insulting to any American than McCain. However, the reason I hold them in such high disdain is their dirty tricks and flat-out dishonest politics, and this is bordering on something I would expect to see from their camp. This is simply money well spent on improving a community in the places that need it; that's what government spending is supposed to do.
[...] earmarks even though she herself has been one of the most enthusiastic offenders in this regard, having bragged about all the pork she managed to pick up for the town for which she served as mayor, and is at any rate quite right to have bragged about her record on such things in light of the fact [...]
