Sarah Palin Roots for Government Shutdown, Obama Blame
America’s fastest-sinking presumptive candidate for president is hoping that the man she’d like to replace is blamed for the seemingly imminent shutdown of the federal government.
After striking a “no compromise” posture for the better part of the past two years, since Barack Obama quashed John McCain like a bug in the ‘08 election, Sarah Palin is now tweeting for all with eyes to read that she knows who is solely at fault for the impending collapse of negotiations.
“Pres will veto 1-week spending bill to avoid govt shutdown if Congress passes,” Palin tweeted. “So, now $4T later, leaderless govt digs further debt, bickers over cutting peanuts - peanuts we don’t even have. It’s unsustainable! Let him shut it.”
Obama’s promised veto, of course, came after John Boehner attempted to ram more spending cuts through (above and beyond those Democrats had already agreed to making) by craftily adding a military funding clause to the deal. Thus, when the inevitable promise of a veto to the heinous offer came, people like Palin could cry, “see, he hates the troops!”
Palin’s GOP nemesis Karl Rove, however, knows that the “let him shut it” logic is political suicide for Republicans, and that Obama stock would not, despite Palin’s hopes, do anything but rise as a result.
