Can Someone Please Buy Sarah Palin a Clue?

Sarah Palin made an announcement (or in reality had someone write it up for her) on her Facebook page about an impending announcement by the GOP on their own Health Care Plan.

She had someone write:

Fri at 6:28pm
Mark my words - tomorrow is the game changer! Tune in to hear common sense solutions that bury the false accusations that conscientious members of Congress have no solutions to meet America's health care challenges.

If you're like me, shaking your head wondering why all the miscommunication between Washington and the American people who have been saying, "Please hear what we're saying about our desire for health care reform," then tomorrow will be a refreshing time of clarity for all.

All Americans, and especially colleagues of House Republican Leader John Boehner: please listen to tomorrow's weekly GOP national address. Rep. Boehner will highlight a common sense alternative to Speaker Pelosi's 1,990-page government takeover of health care. I urge you to watch for it. For a preview, go to:

You'll hear solutions. You'll hear of real choices based on America's proven free-market principles. You'll know once and for all what the GOP and Independents have been saying all along about alternatives to another big government take over. After tomorrow, you'll know that accusations against the GOP and Independents for not providing solutions are false. Those claims are bogus. There are alternatives. Tune in to Rep. Boehner's address tomorrow to hear them.

I look forward to the game changer!

- Sarah Palin

You'll hear Solutions she says, Alternatives, Real Choices, it's gonna be a game changer she declares!

So, what happened?

At a press conference this morning, a reporter turned the tables on Boehner and asked whether he’d post the GOP plan for 72 hours. Boehner declined to make such a pledge:

QUESTION: Will the Republicans put their alternative online for 72 hours as well?

BOEHNER: Uh, we’ll uh, we’ll have our ideas ready. Don’t worry.

Why won’t Bohner post the GOP plan? Because he doesn’t have one. Later in the press conference, this minor detail was revealed when a reporter pressed Boehner for a GOP alternative plan:

QUESTION: Is it your plan to have one Republican alternative that you all would get behind and endorse?

BOHNER: We have a number of ideas that we would like to proffer in this process, and we’re not quite sure how the majority intends to proceed. And so until we understand how they intend to proceed, it’s pretty difficult for us to have a solid plan.

The "Game Changer" that Sarah Palin recommends everyone see

So this is her "Game Changer"? This is what she sent people off to watch and touted as the current administrations actual bill? A few ideas that have not been put into anything resembling an actual alternative, and admittance that they have no solid plan as of yet? Hell, I have ideas too, we all do, but that doesn't mean that my ideas are workable solutions, they are just that, ideas.

Is she serious about this? Was this some kind of joke? Does she really consider what Bohner had to say a true alternative to what the Democrats have put together?

    She is playing to the highest bidder now...who will put $ in SarahPac for her to speak? the GOP or Constitution Party?
    Yea...I wondered about the "Game Changer" too...
    Wonder who will have the balls to call her on it????
    But REALLY how can anyone do it...On Facebook???

  2. That is the reason for her posting on facebook. She needs not acknowledge anything she doesn't want to, nor does she need to answer any questions. It is her "safe zone" where there are no questions she can't answer.
    Her FB is heavily monitored and she doesn't allow any dissent on their at all. Violators are immediately banned, some of whom are even supporters. It is rather pathetic, but not surprising in the least.
