Newsflash: Barack Obama is a “quitter,” too

Posted by: ST on July 13, 2009 at 9:22 pm

I see the mainstream mediots, far lefties, and Beltway Republicans are still throwing out the words “quitter” and “quitting” with reckless abandon – using them in the most derogatory of ways, insinuating or outright suggesting that Sarah Palin’s days as being a political player in the GOP are “over” because she’s stepping down as Governor of Alaska. I’d like to remind those know-it-alls that our current President is a quitter, too, if that’s the word they want to use.

Had it been up to then-Senator Obama, all combat brigades would have been out of Iraq by March 2008, and the surge would have never happened. In essence, he wanted us to cut our losses, quit, and run from Iraq, in spite of the fact that he knew doing so would lead to genocide on a massive scale. That same Senator “quit” his church when the heat over his “mentor” pastor Rev. Wright got to be too much last May. That same Senator all but “quit” his post as Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Subcommittee on European Affairs, where he held no policy hearings on the role of NATO in Afghanistan. He took the Chair position in January 2007. He announced he was running for President the next month. Bye bye committee. But it sure as hell looked good on his thin resume. Even candidate Joe Biden called Obama out on this in an early debate.

So for those lefties and insider GOPers sneering at Sarah Palin’s resignation from the Governor’s chair in Alaska for what you call “quitting,,” well – look no further than 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for another, more prominent quitter whose various forms of quitting didn’t seem to hurt him too much.

It boils down to this: What most liberals and estabslishment Republicans hate (but they won’t admit) about Sarah Palin “quitting” as Gov. of Alaska is the fact that after this news fades away they won’t have her and her kids to kick around as political kickballs as much as they used to. Sure, they’ll still try and keep Levi Johnston on retainer to get “dirt” on Palin that he doesn’t really have, but by that point most liberals and mainstream media types (and Beltway Republicans) will have moved on to More Important Things.

And the beat goes on.

    Obama IS NOT a quitter! His diseased ideology marches on… :-?

    I salute Sarah’s gutsy move. The amazing thing is she has more balls than most of these pukes who work in Washington DC. How many of them quit their present lofty positions to run for higher office. Certainly not the man holding the presidency right now. Alaska deserves better than a Govenor who is spending half their time in the lower 48. See if that garbage would fly in NY or CA. I pray that she decides to start a conservative party. Let these moderates have this party, see what they can do running Lindsey Gramnesty for President. – Lorica

    I agree with Lorica…..this is just an example of the main stream politicos not knowing how to handle someone with gumption and independence. They cannot find any other label to stick on her, because basically they can’t put her into one of their neat little stereotypes. Since she is an independent woman who has a family and choose to do what is right by her family, they cannot attack her for that. Since she is a conservative who truly sticks to her principles, they cannot tattoo her with being a hypocrite. Since she knows that all of this attention and legal machinations have hindered her ability to lead the state of ALaksa she did do the right and honorable thing….don’t you think that really sticks in their throats? These guys in the Beltway have no other ambition but to be more ambitious and move up the political ladder. To them what she has done just does not compute!

    So we have her labeled as a “quitter” while Obama has a clearly stated history of notorious ambition for political reasons and power only….gee, isn’t that special!

    More power to Palin! I hope she does something on the independent level and reaches more people that way. Some people that I know who actually voted for Obama are now crying the blues…there might be more resonance for someone who comes to them who is more practical and uses common sense to open their eyes rather than promises and partisanship. I will pray that this is the case for our country.

    Obama also promised the people of Illinois that he was not using his senate seat as a stepping stone to the White House. He promised that he would most certainly serve his full senate term. He quit.

  5. Lorica says:

    Me??? Did he ever actually start?? Hell almost as soon as he got out of orientation he was looking for support to run for President.

    This man’s power hunger is greater than anyone else knows. It is very scary. – Lorica

    Sarah Palin in a great smackdown of the cherished “Tax and Cap” scam in…. the Washington Post. Liberal heads exploding across the country. What a delight :-)

    Palin a quitter? I don’t think so. Notice that one of her PAC’s donations was to the re-election campaign of her former running mate from Arizona. You know, the one who wouldn’t step in and fire anyone for the internal campaign to discredit her in a national campaign (that for all intents and purposes destroyed whatever slim chance the jackass-lite had of winning).

    I call that loyalty, not quitting. Quitting is what McCan’t did to her.
