Are Sarah Palin's Persistent Accusations Against President Obama a Cry for Attention?
Guest Post by Teutonic
So Sarah keeps bumping up her garbage to new levels of slanderous contempt for our president.
I think she will keep it up until he responds, she is screaming for attention from him, is manic in her chase to replace and deface the American presidency.
The latest and greatest of her ramblings borders on Hanoi Jane's and Tokyo Rose's insane yet incessant barking, and seeks to undermine the fabric of the United States.
I try to reconcile the pathos of the narcissist and conceptualize the entire "I ran, I lost, I must run again" mantra that underlies her current message.
But it makes no sense. Whatever drives her to take such an offensive position touting everything that is wrong in America is Obama's fault, seems to be driven more by need for attention than a need to serve and make America a stronger, and more respected nation.
Palin, former Virginia Sen. George Allen and Iran-Contra figure Oliver North, all have one thing in common. They lost.
Oh how egregious they must think that the nation has become, to cast them aside like barely polished old shoes.
The gist of her meal began here...
From the Huffington Post:
Back on May 31, 2010, before Bin Laden was laid to waste in the Arabian Sea, Israeli naval commandos killed nine pro-Palestinian activists in clashes aboard a Turkish ship headed for Gaza.
She also said Obama lacked the resolve to stand up to Russia and China.
"Do they think, really, that we're getting anything in return for all this bowing and kowtowing and apologizing? No, we don't get anything positive in return for this," Palin said at the event spearheaded by a Norfolk talk radio station.
"So while President Obama is getting pushed around by the likes of Russia and China, our allies are left to wonder about the value of an alliance with our country any more. They're asking what is it worth," she said.
Does she not get the fact that her constant twittering to undermine the position of our president, gives comfort to out enemies?
Do the Chinese and the Russians really look at us as if we are a weak and terrified nation?
It seems they have spent the last 5 decades patterning themselves after us as opposed to America emulating them.
Is it wrong to strive for equanimity on the world stage? To seek a common bond as opposed to an iron fist?
America stands on its own. We are by far the strongest nation on earth, with a resolve of the people that we shall never surrender to tyranny.
It is the strength derived from kindness, that lends the might to a yet to be unsheathed sword.
If our enemies had an ounce of the technological might we have, then yes, the world would be afraid. But the world is not afraid. Because we have temperance. No nation fears us, because we have the resolve to restrain our weapons, and seek a path that is right in terms of human decency. We are imperfect, but we try to be better.
Americans are proud, because we are kind. Americans are proud because we are strong. Americans are proud because we do what we feel is the right thing to do. We don't need a sword, because we are the sword.
So Ms Palin. In your relentless path to feed your ego, and mend your hurt feelings, do not allow your vainglorious aspirations to tarnish us. You do not speak for me, nor do you speak for most of our people. You assemble words in rows, and then deliver tired sentences of rhetoric that serves no one but you. You flourish instead of flounder because you are the end product of the American Dream. You are allowed to speak freely, and condemn those that ensure that freedom. The same countries you portray as being stronger than us, deny those freedoms to their own people.
It is your right, and obviously you exploit that freedom. There are many with far less, that are kinder to our leaders. There are many that have sacrificed so much more, and argue so much less. There are many less privileged, that make it through the day without having to launch a traitorous tirade about the inadequacies of our commander in chief.
You have that right as is granted to us all in this free nation of ours, to voice your opinion. But you haven't fought for it. You are the welfare recipient of blood shed for your freedom, by the sons of this nation. You may on some other day lean to your son's contribution to service, but where is yours? Please don't call the Governorship of Alaska a personal sacrifice Ms Palin, because that would be in poor taste.
You rail on and on. But where your criticism of the state of the union are severe, your contributions for relief lack merit.
You are a carnivore of opportunity. You feast on the weakened and lay in wait for misfortune. A Predator. No lipstick can cover that facade.
It will be fun to watch you slowly disassemble and fail.
Your time is up.
BTW- you great American you- You haven't earned the right to thank me for my service, I am an honorably discharged Navy Corpsman (E5). I did my time attached to the grunts over seas.
What we stood for was to be ready and vigilant and to fight potential tyrants like you. Your mask is your citizenship, your saving grace is America.
