Washington Post Caught Red Handed selling Obama Admin Access to Lobbyists, re: Obama Health Care Business Opportunities

Ohhh what webs we weave when first we practice quid pro quo

The Washington Post got caught red handed by Politico selling lobbyists access to key officials of the Obama administration for bird dog fees ranging from $25,000 to $250,000.

Excerpt from the Washington Post letter of offering:

“Underwrite and participate in this intimate and exclusive Washington Post Salon, an off-the-record dinner and discussion at the home of CEO and Publisher Katharine Weymouth. … Bring your organization’s CEO or executive director literally to the table. Interact with key Obama administration and congressional leaders.”

Here is a sample of the letter of offer provided by a whistle blowing Lobbyist:

    very interesting vf. what opportunists and sneaks. This is the kind of event we need to stage some guerilla theater around. Imagine if there was an impromtu demonstration/performance at the entrance of Katherine Weymouths property on the evening of the “Salon”? Hahahahha, would love to see their reactions…..

  2. SamHenry says:

    Bird dog fees, VF? What a coup of a post. Hi rose, news bird et al.

  3. SamHenry says:

    While we were focused on the TV media obviously Obama’s storm troopers were visiting the diva of the Post.

  4. SamHenry says:

    Where is everyone?

  5. SamHenry says:

    Newsbird has said: WOW cover a lot of topics here in comments!! But I have not seen any liberals dear to comment here….

    Actually newsbird, Rose is and I, to a lesser extent are liberals. I am more or less on the track back to conservatism but still hold many liberal views.

  6. SamHenry says:

    Newsbird – I also think that when you consider yourself intelligent, you want to debate with others than those who talk and think as you do. This is how we grow.

    This article is SO GOOD:
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/07/obamas_biggest_character_flaw_1.html

    and this comment is the absolute bomb:
    “If this article is implying that Obama has an inferiority complex I don’t buy it. A grandiosity complex vis-a-vis the despised Americans and humble gratitude for any crumbs of appreciation from the despotic rulers of the turd world is what I see in him. But that grows out of his hard-left ideology, not his psyche. Does he hunger for the approval of the Brit or German leaders? Of course not, because they represent the white West. As a pure ideologue his reactions to every political conflict in the world are totally predictable. Israel: bad and must be destroyed. Arabs: good and must be deferred to. Honduran thug leftist ex-president must be supported. Honduran people and constitution must be opposed and brought to their knees. Etcetera, etcetera. He is an ideological robot. As to what his psyche is composed of?..the devil only knows.”

  8. m2 says:

    ‘nother great read regarding Obama and his declaration on Honduras:

    Obama has sided with a thug, a man who — for completely self-serving reasons — sought to subvert his nation’s constitution. Obama has sided with a man who — like Pancho Villa on a cross-border raid — lead a mob in an effort to execute this illegal scheme. And Obama does this while paying lip service to democracy, even as he imperils it; he claims to stand for freedom, even while supporting those who would extinguish it. It is un-American. It is ugly. It is, in a word, evil.

    Yet it doesn’t surprise me. Some may think the issue is simply that, although Obama despises Zelaya’s tactics, he is driven to support a fellow traveler. Others may think that Obama wants to support a fellow traveler and is indifferent about the tactics. Neither is entirely correct. In point of fact, Zelaya has certain tactics. Obama has certain tactics.

    And they are largely the same.

    In fact, they are shared by virtually all leftists.

    Ignoring the rule of law, manipulating the Constitution, acting as if the end justifies the means . . . . Sound familiar? This is standard left doctrine.

    Examining this further, let’s look at two comments Obama and H. Clinton made about Honduras. Obama said that the U.S. would “stand on the side of democracy” and Clinton said, “we have a lot of work to do to try to help the Hondurans get back on the democratic path . . . .” These comments reflect a common theme. There is gratuitous emphasis on democracy, but what of the rule of law? What of recognition that, technically, Honduras and the U.S. are not democracies but constitutional republics? We don’t hear much talk about these things from liberals, and I have a theory as to why.

    Of course, such comments are often simply rhetoric, but there can be a deeper reason as well. Democracy, in the strict sense of the word, refers to direct rule by the people. Another way to put it is that it’s rule based on the people’s whims. Now, liberals are relativists, which means they don’t believe in Truth, in natural law, in anything beyond man that determines morality. Instead, relativism involves the idea that what people once called morals are merely values, which, in turn, are just a function of a people’s consensus opinion. It then follows that the impositions of values known as civil laws cannot be based on anything outside of man, either; they also are simply a function of opinion, be it the consensus variety or that of those with clout. In other words, liberals believe as the ancient Greek philosopher Protagoras did, that “Man is the measure of all things.”

    Now let’s say you accept this. When constitutional mandates, or laws, then contradict that “measure of all things,” that democratic body, with which will you likely side? This explains why liberals find it unfathomable that anyone would let “a piece of paper” stand in the way of a popular — or politically correct — social change. “Why, you have to be a simpleton to let a law forestall progress!” is the idea. And from their simplistic, shallow perspective it makes sense. If laws originate with opinion, anyway, why would you let them stand in the way of the dominant opinion when the latter changes?

    Yet, at the end of the day, liberals aren’t any more beholden to popular will than to laws, as they scoff at it when it contradicts politically-correct will. And there is a good reason for this. Liberals don’t view democracy as an absolute because there is no such thing in a relativistic world, but they at least view it. That is to say, they know popular will is real but believe God’s will (Truth) is imaginary. And what exists takes precedence over what doesn’t.

    But in a world without absolutes, what takes precedence over all? Well, without any unchanging yardstick for making moral decisions — without Truth to provide answers — liberals have only one thing to refer to: Their mercurial master, feelings. But whose feelings shall hold sway? They may sometimes be those of the majority of people (expressed as “values”), especially insofar as their feelings influence liberals’ feelings. But, then again, the feelings might also be those of most liberals’ favorite people — and the ones they fancy the smartest — themselves. This is what engenders the elitism that justifies trumping popular will; after all, liberals’ own feelings always feel more “right” to them than other people’s.

    Put simply, it’s a question of whose will shall prevail, the popular, politically correct or personal? When man is the measure of all things, the man in the mirror usually trumps your fellow man.

    Speaking of feelings, one that could be instrumental here is fear. What I mean is, we all understand the power of precedent. And along with Chavez, Obama seems to dislike the idea of a military upholding its nation’s constitution and ousting a would-be tyrant. I wonder why?

    Hello everybody!! What’s happening?

    I invited somebody to the conversation but I am not sure if they are going to take me up on it. This person would fit right in.

  10. m2 says:

    Good blog post, anyway VF. Just shows you how the Democrat party is the party of Corporatism now. Look at them, getting CEO’s on board with universal care so they can stick the gov’t with their employee healthcare obligation.

    Democrat party, party of hedge funds, wall street cronies, CEO bonuses, lobbyists, opaqueness, elite “rich” deals, lies, subversion… etc etc etc.

  17. ohiobelle says:

    Good night M2.

    Did anybody hear that North Korea launched 4 missiles today???? It’s true.

  18. rosehips says:

    well, m2, as a liberal, of course I take umbrage with the writer’s characterization of “liberals”. I guess you feel that way when I generalize about conservatives, as I do when you speak of liberals as if we all think alike.
    The writer is certainly proficient with words and sharp as a tack, but I found it a bit acerbic. I guess it was meant to be.

    anyhoo, how was the movie last night? what’d you see?

  19. rosehips says:

    yes, belle. they are launching more missiles. they are twying hard to scare us. boo!

  20. ohiobelle says:

    An old man that looks like a old hag does not scare me. lol

  21. rosehips says:

    belle, that site looks pretty good. I agree with all the leaders in the OAS that a coup is not the appropriate way to oust a leader. I think the guy should be gone when his term is over in January. I don’t think what he was trying to do was right. But if they were acting within the law of Honduras, I think that needs to be respected as well. It’s a tough call.

    I think what happened in the State Senate in New York was rather incredible. What are the dems thinking???

  22. rosehips says:

    hows the job going belle?

  23. rosehips says:

    I will say that sometimes it’s ok to oust a leader by means of a coup. I’d say if I approve of it, it’s ok. lol

    I think you’d like that blogger. I just sent starvngbloggist an email asking him/her to join us. We’ll see.

  26. ohiobelle says:

    Oh my god! This is great! Helen Thomas called out Robert Gibbs… hahaha

    This is what she said..

    “Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try. “What the hell do they think we are, puppets?” Thomas said. “They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.”

    Thomas said she was especially concerned about the arrangement between the Obama Administration and a writer from the liberal Huffington Post Web site. The writer was invited by the White House to President Obama’s press conference last week on the understanding that he would ask Obama a question about Iran from among questions that had been sent to him by people in Iran.

    “When you call the reporter the night before you know damn well what they are going to ask to control you,” Thomas said. “I’m not saying there has never been managed news before, but this is carried to fare-thee-well–for the town halls, for the press conferences,” she said. “It’s blatant. They don’t give a damn if you know it or not. They ought to be hanging their heads in shame.”

  27. rosehips says:

    yeah belle, it sure looks like they are trying to stage their press conferences.

  28. rosehips says:

    belle, are you doing 4 tens?

  31. rosehips says:

    belle, I guess I must have missed Hannity. shucks.
    I was outside picking daisies and then just had some dinner.

  32. rosehips says:

    well, I’m catching the end of it. learning where all the omnibus bill money is being spent.

  33. ohiobelle says:

  35. arlenearmy says:

    Looks like Obama lost his head over his Huff Puff boyfriend.

  36. arlenearmy says:

    Helen Thomas can be an omen.

    1. Remember when Helen did a bashing article on Nixon? Nixon didn’t last long.

    2. Remember when Helen wrote some bad stuff about Carter? She got upset w/him. Carter left the presidency in shame.

    3. Remember, yesterday when Helen got upset on how Obama is handling the press. She’s very upset. Anyone care to fill in the blank on what will happen ….

    NOTICE TO OBAMA: Don’t get on Helen’s bad side.

  37. karmahd says:

    Helen is a bit older now but still full of piss and vinegar, she does not have any agenda other than reporting the news, she is from the left, but when you piss off a reporter from the left, I agree it is a omen!!

    Howdy, tonight was my Friday, went to the Crab Shack on the Cotee River, cool place and it is more of a Tiki building all open to the water, and the breeze was good, as was the Coconut Rum and Cranberry!! I need a good nights sleep but will touch base in the morn. Hello all and good night, Rose I am here, Karma is all around you LOL

  60. m2 says:

    Hi guys, there are no “shovel ready jobs” because all the stimulus was, was waste-spending… on like mushrooms and stuff… meant to deplete this nation of wealth, and enslave state gov’ts under federal power.

    I bet by 2011 there still won’t be jobs, save for the 15% of Unionized construction workers digging dirt on the side of Chicago’s Hwy.

  61. rosehips says:

    OBAMA MEETS HIS MATCH

    By Paul Starobin
    Special to CNN

    Editor’s note: Paul Starobin is author of “After America: Narratives for the Next Global Age,” recently published by Viking, a division of Penguin Group (USA) Inc. He served as Moscow bureau chief for Business Week from 1999-2003.
    Paul Starobin says Obama’s global “charm offensive” may not go over well in Russia.

    Paul Starobin says Obama’s global “charm offensive” may not go over well in Russia.

    (CNN) — Barack Obama often seems to have much of the planet at his feet in rapt attention to his every word.

    But the president as global oracle is about to meet his stony match — in the vast and barren place that proved a graveyard for Napoleon and that has an ingrained suspicion of foreigners as an abiding quality of its cultural DNA.

    That place, of course, is Russia, which Obama plans to visit this month. The president will find a Kremlin amenable to doing business with him on traditional diplomatic matters like reducing nuclear weapons stockpiles, so long as Moscow is convinced the deal is an even one.

    But if Obama, more ambitiously, hopes to win over the hearts of the Russian people — along the lines of his recent Cairo address, pitched over the heads of the governments of the Islamic world and straight at their citizenry — he can expect to leave disappointed.

    The Russians, to start with, have never been all that enthralled with the Obama phenomenon. On the eve of his inauguration, a 17-nation poll conducted by the BBC World Service found that in every country except two, a majority of the people believed his presidency would lead to an improvement in relations between the United States and the rest of the world.

    The two nations feeling otherwise were Russia and Japan. And a poll just released by the Levada Center in Moscow found that only 23 percent of Russians feel confident that Obama will “do the right thing in world affairs.”

    One reason for this attitude is that the Russians do not quite share Obama’s sense of global priorities. For Obama, as for so much of the planet, global climate change is a serious and even urgent concern. But as the BBC poll found, this is not a priority for Russians, and neither is making peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, another big agenda item for Obama and his allies.

    * NATO, Russia to resume military relationship
    * In Depth: Commentaries

    A deeper reason for Russian skepticism of Obama, and of the Obama craze in general, goes to a core difference of temperament. Obama is prototypically American in his penchant for singing his political song in the key of optimism. For Russians, life tends to be lived in the bittersweet key of tragedy.

    While the Russians are not gloomy pessimists — they have a sardonic genius for finding a way to laugh through their tears — they are skeptics on the distinctively American idea that history is all about progress. Experience, painful experience, has taught them otherwise.

    Where Obama has a chance of making some headway is on the ripe question of America’s intentions for operating in Russia’s neighborhood — in the territories of the former Soviet (and Tsarist) empire.

    Many Russians believe, in a message reinforced by state media propaganda, that America has a strategic plan to keep Russia weak by propping up former Soviet republics and maintaining a permanent military presence along Russia’s soft southern underbelly in Central Asia and the Caucasus, extending to Ukraine in the Black Sea area.

    George W. Bush tried to persuade Western European countries to have NATO invite as new members a pair of ex-Soviet republics, Georgia and Ukraine. If Obama halts this dubious quest — he hasn’t revealed his hand — he will mitigate a major source of Russian resentment.

    For Russia, NATO spells USA. The alliance, in their mind, is a branch of the American global military empire. As they showed last summer, when they invaded Georgia, they are prepared to spill blood to keep Georgia, at least, from becoming a full-fledged member of any U.S.-led military grouping.

    A similarly thorny issue awaits Obama on another matter left unresolved by his predecessor: the question of America’s plan, hotly opposed by Russia, to construct a radar installation in the Czech Republic and deploy missile interceptors in Russia.

    President Bush tried to persuade the Russians that this missile-defense shield was needed to protect Europe from a future Iranian nuclear threat. But as the Russians see it, not surprisingly, a shield also could be used to deny them their strategic nuclear deterrent — and thus could leave them vulnerable to attack by a power like America.

    The Obama administration is now sending signals that it is prepared to bargain with the Russians on a missile-defense plan — one idea is to have the U.S. and the Russians collaborate on a joint system — but so far, the Russians aren’t going for this.

    The two sides also appear to be at loggerheads on the hot new question of cyberspace security — with Washington balking at Moscow’s push for an international treaty to ban certain offensive measures that nations may take in fighting a cyber-war.

    What the Russians, from the Kremlin on down, would really like to hear is that Washington is prepared to relinquish designs on any territory close to their borders and is indeed prepared to give Russia a free hand to police its regional neighborhood. Russia’s dream is to be a great power in a multipolar world, not to be a second-tier nation in a world still run by the Americans.

    But surely Obama will not say anything publicly that suggests acquiescence to Russia’s ambition for a regional sphere of interest, 19th century style. For one thing, this message would smack of cynicism. Russia, under Vladimir Putin, has returned to its authoritarian ways.

    Obama cannot call for democracy in Islamic societies while altogether ignoring its retreat in Russia. More generally, Americans, and American presidents, like to steer clear of the vocabulary of realpolitik, a language redolent of the Old Europe against which America decisively rebelled centuries ago.

    The likelihood, then, is for stalemate in the contest between Obama’s campaign for the hearts of the Russians and their demand to be free of American meddling in their old imperial stomping grounds.

    The Russian people are probably not going to come away with a pronounced negative view of Obama — he is acutely sensitive to cultural protocol wherever he goes and has yet to make a wrong step. But as for his global charm offensive — this is where it comes to a halt.

    The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Paul Starobin.

    Rose… where do you get off saying something like that?

    Obama has been governing through the use of fear tactics for political purposes.

    One definition of terrorist:
    http://tinyurl.com/muvspm

    One who governs by terrorism or intimidation; originally applied to an agent or partisan of the revolutionary tribunal during the Reign of Terror .

  149. rosehips says:

    m2, I must have gone to different liberal parties than you. lol. and it’s one thing to say it at a party, but where is it written by any liberals that “Bush is Hitler” other than by extreme radical? And the way y’all talk about Obama, he will be locking up anyone who slanders him. And he of course gets to determine if what you say is slander.

    Liberals loved to use the Bush is Hitler line. It’s practically all they said

  150. rosehips says:

    Sami, freedom of speech and slander are different. But luckily we do get to slander our public figures I believe.

    one thing I’m wondering. Will the fairness doctrine carry over to the blogosphere? Will public blogs have to show both sides? That will be interesting.

    What’s the status of the Fairness Doctrine anyhow?

    sami said: Are you saying Rose we should fear Obama and give up our Freedom of Speech? Do you fear him?

  151. SamHenry says:

    M2 thanks for the citation to the American Thinker article – a good one. Loved the line:

    You could call it ego porn.

  152. SamHenry says:

    Rose: I don’t see that calling Obama a terrorist is slander. It is an attack on his politics, not his person.

  153. rosehips says:

    ok vf. I personally am not intimidated by Obama, but I see your defense. You have a case and I’m sure you can get that crazy Russian dentist to represent you. I will be there at the trial supporting y’all. I don’t want your voices suppressed. Power to the People!

    vf said: One who governs by terrorism or intimidation; originally applied to an agent or partisan of the revolutionary tribunal during the Reign of Terror .

  154. samiam60 says:

    This says it all if you love America.

  155. m2 says:

    Rosehips, my friends on facebook said Bush is Hitler, just like they joke about Palin birthing “retards”…

    really? If I looked at HuffPo at any time between 2004 and 2007 I would see people saying Bush IS Hitler.

    As I did usually look at traditional liberal hangouts to get their perspective.

    Daily Kos.
    I’m pretty sure Olbermann alluded to it.

  156. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… Obamatards have been trying to suppress opposition with intimidation such as you just tried to pull with that asshat statement of yours…

    And I, for one, do not appreciate that kind of intimidation.

    I advise you to rethink your use of it here.

    rosehips // July 3, 2009 at 9:44 am

    You two are both crazy. Have you no fear? If you think he is a terrorist, the last thing you should do is state it publicly. geeesh. It was nice knowing you. lol

  157. m2 says:

    Honestly, saying that we shouldn’t say something b/c Obama’ll get You! is like some of those old ireporters who dislike free speech so much it was their only defense.

  158. SamHenry says:

    The definition you have given Rose is one based on the etymology (sp) it is not based on current usage. You would have to go to a dictionary of current usage or to the OED.

  159. m2 says:

    As to the Fairness Doctrine, which the free-speech hating liberals love to hoist as intimidation, yes, it is being sponsored for the internet by Senator Rockefeller. Another power elitist who’s great friends with George Soros. Something for the liberal “hate the man” crowd to be proud of…

  160. rosehips says:

    correction: if it’s written it is considered “libel”; slander is for oral statements.

    sh, I think there is an excellent case for calling Obama a terrorist and being within your constitutional rights. You can argue semantics and interpret the word very differently than what most people consider a terrorist.

    And there is the public figure pass that we get. We can say things about the prez that we can’t say about each other. So nobody better try calling me a terrorist, or prepare to pay. lol

  161. m2 says:

    off to gymboree!

  162. samiam60 says:

    If some of you my dear friends had ever seen what these eyes have seen you would forever be changed in a most profound way. All my attempts to re-enlist in the early 90’s were shot down because of my age. Let me tell you all this, I would give anything to be able to go and serve again this great country. I’d go right now.

  163. rosehips says:

    and I am sorry if it appears that I am trying to suppress anyone.

    I believe you should say whatever you believe and not fear the government. I know from experience that you can’t trust the government and they will always be watching to see who wants to undermine their power. It happens on all sides.

    I’m not paranoid, but believe me they are watching. I’ve personally never really worried about it because I am not a terrorist or an outlaw. I have nothing to fear. But who wants your conversations recorded or your emails intercepted? It’s an intrusion.

  164. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… I heard Bush say, after 911, we will not let them change our way of life… then he signed into law the most privacy invasive legislation ever written… and all of America was deprived of privacy as a result.

    So… no, I have no reason to “trust” that a government will not misuse power. That is why government power limitations is a primary goal of people who understand what we give up as a democracy when government expands it’s powers.

  165. samiam60 says:

    Rose as long as I have breath I will speak out against my freedoms being deminished. I will not fear my government and in the day that I should it is no longer America!

    I agree with Obama about the Bible.

    I do think Jesus would turn the other cheek even today. I believe he was a pacifist. sami, I am sorry you saw such horror as you imply. I am sorry you want to go back to war. I feel deeply that our Creator would not condone war. I know you will bring up abortion so I will say that I am not sure about the Creator’s view on abortion. I’m not even sure who the Creator is. I don’t remember what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount. can anyone enlighten me?

    Rose – I don’t like to use the concise or compact OED which is online but here is a definition that comes closer. Remember, usage also entails instances when a word is used to create hyperbole which is the way Belle etc are using it.

    Rose says:

    ok, just having some bear mush before I go out. sami, I personally want to apologize for all the hippie girls who did disgusting things during the vietnam war to our soldiers. I am ashamed that you got spit on. Although I was too young to be an actual hippie back then, they were grooming us with our beads, peace signs and moccasins on our feet. Flash the “V” was all the rage.

    I not only want to officially apologize but I will offer reparations. what do you think would be appropriate? lol

    roflmao,, Rose your a card. However, I have carried that scar a long, long, time and so it may take me awhile to heal from it. lol,
    Sad thing is the girl was just so darned cute I could not get mad at her. I gave Her the peace sign and walked off. I am such a wimp for women.

    Soooo…should the gov’t pay employees for a day off today?

    I think during a recession or depression, people should have to work today. Maybe we should celebrate all our holidays on the weekends and save tax dollars.

    I bet gov’t workers would all love that. heehee

  220. rosehips says:

    sami, that is probably the very best the you could have done. She is probably feeling eternally guilty until this day…

    I think that our youth learned that our soldiers are not the enemy. It is unfortunate that soldiers were treated so hostily during vietnam.

    I don’t think that is the case today. I think almost everyone supports the troops.

  222. rosehips says:

    ok, really need to go. laters.

  223. samiam60 says:

    Thanks for that Rose. Actually I hope she is not feeling guilty. She was young and I was coming home to an America that was different then the one I left. Life goes on.

    It was a war none of us really wanted Rose. Orders are orders.

    Rosehips, that’s a great idea!!

    I agree with Rose!!

  227. ohiobelle says:

    It looks like everybody had things to do.

    I’ll check back later today. bye bye

  228. rosehips says:

    belle, today I am determined to start attacking all my personal waste. hahaha

    I have tons of e-waste that I have yet to take to Goodwill. We ran a referendum a few years ago in wash state and now we can take drop our e-waste off for free. The manufacturers are responsible for disposing of them properly. It is no longer legal to take them to the dump and I have resisted taking them all the way to Spokane and pay for disposal. They used to charge $15 for each monitor! yowza.

    that is just one thing on my to-do list. I will check in to see if anyone else is on. It is a slow news day I think, although I have not turned on the t.v.

    Is Michael’s funeral today? I’m sure that will be the news all day long.

  229. rosehips says:

    almost two days with no foxy? I hope everything is ok fox….

  230. rosehips says:

    I didn’t see this story the first time around. This soldier just came home and it’s a slow news day. Here’s the original story on youtube. I got a little choked up watching it.

  231. rosehips says:

    can’t wait for this movie!

  232. rosehips says:

    a great explanation of the Mayan calendars and funny Sarah Palin reference at the end.

  233. karmahd says:

    Rose that girl makes me wish I was young!! Wooooohoooo!!!

  234. arlenearmy says:

    I now await words from Sarah Palin.

  235. arlenearmy says:

    BREAKING NEWS
    Is palin stepping down. what the hell is going on ?

  236. arlenearmy says:

    I hear there bursts of breaking news, but no word from palin yet. i went to palin tweets, but nothing even hints that she’s stepping down. Oh lord.

  237. arlenearmy says:

    now they say she is RESIGNING.

  238. ohiobelle says:

    Holy Crap!! Why is Palin stepping down from being Gov of Alaska?? I bet all the moonbats are celebrating!

  239. arlenearmy says:

    Belle
    Something is going on. I wish she would make a statement to we the people.

  240. ohiobelle says:

    I was driving down the road when I heard it on the radio!!! I almost drove in the ditch!

  241. ohiobelle says:

    I agree with you Arlene. She’s making a statement now on Fox.

  242. ohiobelle says:

    It looks like vf might have a new post on this story.

  243. arlenearmy says:

    Belle
    Girl, stay on the road. I’m praying that this is nothing bad. I don’t understand why she is resigning at end of the month. In any case, my VOTE FOR PRESIDENT IS SARAH PALIN !!!

  244. arlenearmy says:

    Gret said that she signed a letter (earlier in week) for a Sarah Pac.
