Obama sees origins of Trump’s rise in Sarah Palin

The path that brought the Republican Party to nominating Donald Trump as its candidate for the White House began in 2008, President Barack Obama said in an interview published Monday, when Sarah Palin joined John McCain’s GOP ticket.

“I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party,” the president told New York Magazine. “Whether that changes, I think, will depend in part on the outcome of this election, but it’s also going to depend on the degree of self-reflection inside the Republican Party. There have been at least a couple of other times that I’ve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse.”

The rest of the interview was Obama saying “Me, me, me, racism, racism, me.”

    Hah! Sarah still lives rent-free in his noggin!

  2. lyn says:

    I was wondering when Sarah Palin would enter the 2016 race. Thank you, Worst President Ever! Geraldine Ferraro was right.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Sarah’s a lightening rod for the Dems, I’m sure she’s now being dragged into the race by Obama so he can stir up sh*t problems that aren’t there. Hillary should have never let Geraldine resign her 2008 campaign for speaking so honestly.

  3. 49erDweet says:

    IOW the rest of his speech was, for him, normal.

  4. taw46 says:

    Why yes, that path did begin in 2008. When you were elected, jackass.

  5. Watch for dead people voting:

    Trump urges supporters to monitor polling places in ‘certain areas’

    For a second night in a row, Donald Trump told a vastly white audience of supporters on Saturday that they should go to neighborhoods other than their own on Election Day and “watch.” Trump didn’t elaborate on what they should watch for, telling his crowd in this rural Pennsylvania town that he didn’t want to lose the election “because of you know what I’m talking about.” Trump’s comments were interpreted by voting-rights advocates and others as a subtle but menacing call for his supporters to intimidate at the polls. “You’ve got to go out, and you’ve got to get your friends, and you’ve got to get everybody you know, and you gotta watch the polling booths, because I hear too many stories about Pennsylvania, certain areas,” Trump said during a rambling speech. “I hear too many bad stories, and we can’t lose an election because of you know what I’m talking about. So, go and vote and then go check out areas because a lot of bad things happen, and we don’t want to lose for that reason. We don’t want to lose — but especially, we don’t want to lose for that reason. So go over and watch. And watch carefully, because we’re going to win the state of Pennsylvania.” On Friday night, Trump made a similar comment during a rally in the Detroit suburb of Novi. “You’ve been reading the same stories as I’ve been reading, so go to your place and vote, and then go pick some other place, and go sit there with your friends and make sure it’s on the up and up,” Trump said. “Because you know what? That’s a big, big problem in this country, and nobody wants to talk about it. Nobody has the guts to talk about it. So go and watch these polling places. Make sure it’s on the up and up. Please. That would one hell of a way to lose.”

    I was at Mom’s when The View came on and Whoopi Cushion started talking about this. I made Mom turn it off.

    • Ann says:

      Well goodness knows the Black Panthers never monitored in Philly during 2008 or 2012 with bats or batons – so no intimidation there. They hate that Trump brings things into the open that no one else will talk about, and then people start searching the internet …

      Although didn’t the leader of the New Black Panthers endorse Trump back in August?

    • Philly was where the NBPP were loitering outside a polling place and holding weapons. It’s also one of the places where Obama got 100% of the vote in some precincts.

      • taw46 says:

        And they “threatened” blacks as well as whites. Little old ladies that turned around and went home. It made me so mad at the time.

  6. taw46 says:

    This is for Lyn and myiq, plus anyone else who likes cats. This lady owns 12 Persians and they are gorgeous.

    • lyn says:

      Wow–they are beautiful, and their noses aren’t between their eyes. I’m a full-time cat mom with three.

      • taw46 says:

        Are yours Persians? I saw in comments, some one said they have the perfect “original” Persian face.

        And did you notice how clean her house is? I’m impressed, lol.

        • lyn says:

          I have three solid gray medium hairs, and they are brothers. We can’t leave anything out in our house. One likes to lick and eat plastic bags. Another one is a pack rat.

          • taw46 says:

            We have a Manx that my sister “inherited” from neighbors who moved. He is mostly outdoors, gets along great with the dogs, and likes to take walks with us. A really cool breed.

          • Somebody says:

            I had a solid gray long haired with the most beautiful green eyes. The sweetest lap cat you could imagine, he actually acted more like a dog than a cat in many ways.

        • lyn says:

          Our first cat was a Manx, and she was a love bug. She didn’t like dogs and chased them out of the yard (we always went out with her). My gray boys act like dogs too and they follow me everywhere. Here’s one of them.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Slight error in the story/hed. Twelve Persian cats own one Japanese lady!

    • swanspirit says:

      Many many years ago I had a beautiful orange version cat named Feathers. He behaved more like an alley cat than a fine furrowed denizen of the parlour. One of the things he did best, was jump through the third floor bedroom window onto my then boyfriends chest when he was sleeping. No matter which side of the bed He slept on, Feathers always landed on him, never on me. I loved that cat. But my Goddess the fur issues! Twice daily brushing, dealing with mats etc…
      I cannot imagine eight!!!

    • DeniseVB says:

      We can’t have kitties because of dh’s allergies, thanks for the fix! They are gorgeous and her home is cleaner and shinier than mine. She’s a Tiger Mom for sure😀

  7. Aren’t they?

    “I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party,”

    Well, at least that’s a pretty good observation.

    “There have been at least a couple of other times that I’ve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse.”

    Because you, Mr. President, are apparently running on a different set of fundamental premises than a large chunk of “We the People”.

    • Fever is not a disease, it is a symptom.

      An elevated body temperature (fever) is one of the ways our immune system attempts to combat an infection. Usually the rise in body temperature helps the individual resolve an infection. However, sometimes it may rise too high, in which case the fever can be serious and lead to complications.

      In this case the infection in the body politic is bloated and corrupt government.

  10. lateblum says:

    I just heard (on news radio) HRC criticizing DJT saying, “What kind of person loses One Billion Dollars in a year?” On no she di’int. Oh, yes she did.
    I want someone to ask “What kind of SOS loses SIX Billion Dollars over time and doesn’t bat an eyelash?”
    Seriously, I am so weary of this cr@p. I don’t pay much attention to the political ads, but this was on the news. . . .

    • Somebody says:

      Technically she has a worse money losing track record than Trump. She lost 6 billion over 4 years as SOS so that’s 1.5 billion per year AND her 2015 taxes show a loss of almost $700,000. So she’s outpaced Trump by 5.8 billion.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Shep played that clip and I turned off the t.v. She’s running a sound bite campaign and knew that line would get picked up this cycle. And it did. She’s just annoying me now. How Presidential, lol !

    • ecoast says:

      Yes, easy to lose a billion or more in a year, because they are write-off and business closure decisions. In that sense, they are actually lost in a single day or hour, when the ownership makes the decision to write off.
      She is a dummy.

  11. swanspirit says:

    GMTA!! I just posted this on FB and was getting ready to post here!
    She lives rent free in his head. Stealing his thunder in 2008 must have really chapped his butt.
    But then he does always seem to blame a woman, if he can.
    And he doesn’t seem to be able to recall his own history accurately.
    He accuses the Republicans of not wanting to work with him. But has completely forgotten that when the Republicans did initially make overtures, Obama and the Dems told ” We won” , and turned their backs on them.
    But Sarah definitely lives rent free in his head.
    Maybe he thinks making some kind of connection from Sarah to Trump will slow the Trump train. Very wrong , and very late to the game.Sarah already endorsed Trump, but maybe he didn’t notice.
    But this little insight into how he thinks is sad, because it really demonstrates how meager and lacking in depth his thinking is. It’s no wonder his presidency has been a disaster. He never was adequate , or competent enough, to do the job. The scope of his thinking is faulty and deficient.

    • lyn says:

      Sarah has been quiet during this election too. For Obama, Sarah must be his dog whistle.

      • Somebody says:


        Sarah is a dog whistle to the millenials. his team so thoroughly trashed Palin that most of the millenials despise her, think she is stupid, etc.

        Clearly this is a tactic to tie Trump and Palin together. Hillary’s internals with millenials must be pretty bad and the basement dweller thing certainly didn’t help.

        BTW I don’t think trying to tie DJT to Palin will work simply because of who he is. He’s been in everyone’s living rooms on TV, the millenials know him and they knew who he was long before they ever heard of Sarah Palin.

    • lateblum says:

      “But this little insight into how he thinks is sad, because it really demonstrates how meager and lacking in depth his thinking is. It’s no wonder his presidency has been a disaster. He never was adequate, or competent enough, to do the job. The scope of his thinking is faulty and deficient.”

      So well stated.
      If people had even thought to look, they’d have seen that although he was Harvard’s first black Law Review editor, he was also the ONLY one to NEVER write anything. His contributions to any enterprise were limited to tearing others apart or stealing something from them to undercut any possible success (for them). As an adjunct instructor at UofC, his classes are said to have been limited to a syllabus of required readings and no lectures. The list of flimsy accomplishments and inadequate effort includes challenging signatures on petitions, unsealing divorce records of opponents, taking the ideas of others and claiming them as his own, blaming others for his lack of success.

      • swanspirit says:

        I never thought he was a particularly skilled orator, either. He is probably jealous of Sarah’s speaking ability, not to mention she can read circles around his teleprompter skills. I think it’s hilarious she lives rent free n his head.
        His post presidency memoirs will probably include a few chapters devoted to ” How Sarah Palin ruined my legacy” .

      • ecoast says:

        He was not the editor, but the publisher, a special position created for him.

        • lateblum says:

          It seems as if every position is specially created for this very special” man, doesn’t it? I did not realize he was the publisher and not the editor. Thanks for clearing that up. It was likely because he couldn’t write and had no talent for the job of editor. But he was a POC.
          (Also. POS. But that’s an entirely different matter.)

    • In partisan remarks before the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) fundraising dinner this evening, President Obama said that Republicans are like bad drivers, who once drove the car into a ditch and now want the keys back.

      “After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want to keys back. No! You can’t drive. We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.”

      • Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer on Thursday compared Republican lawmakers to suicide bombers as the showdown over a possible government shutdown intensified.

        “We are for cutting spending, we are for reforming our tax code, we are for reforming entitlements,” Mr. Pfeiffer told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “But what we are not for is negotiating with people who have a bomb strapped to their chest.”

        Mr. Pfeiffer, 37, who was hospitalized twice this month for stroke-like symptoms, also compared the GOP to arsonists and kidnappers. He called Republicans’ bid to attach other priorities to a debt-ceiling bill “ransom demands.”

        “It’s not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say give me everything inside or I’m going to burn it down,” Mr. Pfeiffer said.

        “So if they want to have a discussion about how we reduce our deficits and how we help the middle class, how we give them a better bargain, lift the debt ceiling. Take the full faith and credit of the United States off the table and lets have a discussion,” he added.

        • Lulu says:

          “Mr. Pfeiffer, 37, who was hospitalized twice this month for stroke-like symptoms”
          Shit is getting real and they are freaking the hell out. Is he afraid of prison or something? Stroking out (probably panic or anxiety attacks with BP spikes) at 37 shows real terror. Where is Pfeiffer’s nasty shit talking now? He is now in ass covering mode. The WH (including him) wouldn’t talk to Congress and that wasn’t just Republicans but they wouldn’t talk to Democrats either. And he is lying now the little weasel.

    FBI agreed to destroy laptops of Clinton aides as part of the immunity agreement. Uhhhh…… isn’t this kind of the opposite of what the FBI is supposed to be doing?

  13. DeniseVB says:

    Bookworm pretty much explains why Palin’s been dragged into Obama’s head again. I think she’s on to something, Donald and Sarah are not elite enough for DC. I agree with the above, it’s a dog whistle of some kind, so I’m sure Tina Fey will be showing up again on SNL.😉

    • lyn says:

      I wonder who Bookworm is.

    • I wrote my “Palin to Trump” post to expose how shallow Progressives NeverTrumpers are. That analysis explains why Obama made his “Palin to Trump” comment: He was warning any wavering Progressives NeverTrumpers disturbed by Hillary’s incompetence, corruption, health problems, and mental stability, that they’d better not wander off the exclusive, fact-free, intellectual resort behind which they’ve walled themselves. After all, substantive things such as the economy, national security, government ineptitude and corruption, the rule of law, don’t matter. The only thing that matters is that the next president of the United States be “one of us.”

      • Lulu says:

        I still think it is a “class” thing for most proggies and globalists. They are convinced they will be in the “ruling” class for some reason because they are smarter, “good”, educated, and I think don’t really like to work much and certainly not hard (Hilary’s endless Worrrkin’ Haaarrrd is her projection) so it is a ticket to Easy-Ville positions. Almost all of the proggie types I know are either slackers, have shitty do-little jobs, or climbers. A lot of them conveniently believe this shit because they think they will be part of the ruling elite (meaning they know it is all horseshit and those are the ones laughing at Hilary’s nasty putdown bon mots at fundraisers).

    • Constance says:

      I headed out of Seattle to the Mill Creek mega garage sale last weekend and about two suburbs out the Trump signs started showing up. That was refreshing. But I know some people in Seattle who aren’t saying anything but are voting for Trump also.

    Makes no sense but Trump reminds me of my. Favorite sonnet

    Sonnet 29 “When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes”

    When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
    I all alone beweep my outcast state,
    And trouble deaf Heaven with my bootless cries,
    And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
    Featur’d like him, like him with friends possess’d,
    Desiring this man’s art, and that man’s scope,
    With what I most enjoy contented least:
    Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
    Haply I think on thee,–and then my state
    (Like to the lark at break of day arising
    From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
    For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings
    That then I scorn to change my state with kings’.

    “Cowards die many times before their deaths;
    the valiant never taste death but once.”
    – William Shakespeare
    Its a guidepost for me. I see Trump as flawed but working towards something better.
    Guess it makes no sense other than those stanzas do not allow me to not believe. I cannot give up because of that first line. I do find it transcendent.

  21. Somebody says:

    Headlines all over are screaming Trump SCANDALS…..Trump mired in scandal……Trump scandal cheat sheet…..Another scandal for Trump……blah, blah. The MSM has their marching orders tie Trump and scandal together, cement that in the public’s mind.

    Add to that all these squirrels coming out about the Clintons, which I think are purposely planted to discredit anyone that picks them up and to wear the public down…..yawn, some other wild accusation about the Clintons.

    Me thinks there is something big on the horizon because this all very much orchestrated. I really don’t have much faith in Assange and wikileaks, but who knows.

    I don’t know what the Clintons think is coming down the pike, but they sure are in battle mode and the MSM are their foot soldiers.

  22. DandyTIger says:

    Lyn’s mention of political signs reminded me. Drove around C’ville (95% for Obama) and the surrounding county (65% for Obama) this weekend. In the county there were tons of Trump signs and not a single Hillary sign. In town there were a few Trump signs and also not a single Hillary sign. I’m sure that will change in the next few weeks. Also it was not very scientific. But interesting nonetheless.

    The community organizer and half-term Senator has the nerve to question ANYONE else, especially a CEO of 40+ years of a multi-billion dollar company, being qualified for POTUS is laughable.

    Even before they ripped off the Haitians in 2010, they did the same in 2001 when multiple villages in India were destroyed due to a massive earthquake.

    They are vultures!


    “EXPOSED: The Corrupt Clinton Foundation You’ve Never Heard Of”

    Three months after leaving the White House in 2001, former President Bill Clinton arrived in India to cheering throngs to help those who had just lost a million homes in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that killed 20,000 and injured 166,000.

    In classic Clinton style, he solemnly promised that his new nonprofit ­ called the American India Foundation (AIF) ­ would rebuild 100 villages. Rajat Gupta, his millionaire co-chairman, pledged $1 billion for the victims.

    It never happened. Years later, AIF’s annual reports were reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation and show only seven villages were partially rebuilt by Clinton’s group, and a mere $2.7 million of $53 million raised over a decade went to the earthquake victims.

    • Lulu says:

      It is all a pyramid racket. The overseas stuff is to make sure most of it was never investigated properly and outside the jurisdiction of US prosecutors. To shut India up about the rip-off the State Dept then helps India get outsourced US tech jobs. The usual Dem/Chicago scam model with all Clinton Foundation friends getting “consulting”, travel, fancy meetings fees, a few local capos paid off, only the minimum done so some photos can be taken. Lots of big plans, talk-talk-talk, virtue signaling the donors, and then nada except the money is all gone. Most NGO’s do this at least to some extent now as it is the gold standard of “charity”.
