The Sarah Palin 60 day SLURGE !
It’s time to coin a new word for the remainder of the campaign. To parody that infamous word of the Bush Mal-Administration, I hereby suggest that anything Sarah Palin, John McCain or any Republican Talking Head spews, be called
The Slurge… for Slurred Surge. We all know how effective that was.
The following are all lies or gross exaggerations spewed by Sarah "Dittohead" Palin.
Each of these statements by Palin is refuted at:
PALIN SLURGE:“I told Congress, ‘Thanks but no thanks’ for that Bridge to Nowhere up in Alaska,” she said in a speech today. “If our state wanted a bridge, we were gonna built it ourselves.”
PALIN SLURGE: "The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes ... raise payroll taxes ... raise investment income taxes ... raise the death tax ... raise business taxes ... and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that's now opened for business - like millions of others who run small businesses. How are they going to be any better off if taxes go up?"
PALIN SLURGE: “Senator McCain also promises to use the power of veto in defense of the public interest - and as a chief executive, I can assure you it works.”
PALIN SLURGE: “I came to office promising major ethics reform, to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is the law.”
PALIN SLURGE: “I suspended the state fuel tax, and championed reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress.”
PALIN SLURGE: “But we are expected to govern with integrity, and goodwill, and clear convictions…”
PALIN SLURGE: “I understand that we must reduce our dependence on foreign energy. I’ve worked with our state’s energy producers to expand our production so that we can have a safe, reliable supply of energy produced here in the United States.”
PALIN SLURGE: “And despite fierce opposition from oil company lobbyists, who kind of liked things the way they were, we broke their monopoly on power and resources.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear [ed: must be nuclear] plants … create jobs with clean coal … and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Taxes are too high … he (Obama) wants to raise them.”
PALIN SLURGE: “As for my running mate, you can be certain that wherever he goes, and whoever is listening, John McCain is the same man. I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment.”
PALIN SLURGE: “ But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man (Obama) who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.”
PALIN SLURGE: “America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.”
PALIN SLURGE: “We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he (Obama) wants to forfeit.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Terrorist states are seeking new-clear weapons without delay… he (Obama) wants to meet them without preconditions.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Government is too big … he (Obama) wants to grow it. Congress spends too much … he promises more.”
PALIN SLURGE: “Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific. The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes … and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars.”
