Small town Sarah has big city taste and a big designer wardrobe courtesy of the RNC!

October 22nd, 2008 · 16 Comments

Governor Sarah Palin is becoming like Alberto Gonzales in the sense that she’s the gift that keeps giving to the Democrats. As if the revelation about her exorbitant travel expenses for her children wasn’t outrageous enough, we are treated to the news that the RNC spent $150K to clothe and accessorize their VP candidate. If you really believe that Senator Obama and his wife are as “pampered,” read this post at the DailyKos and note the picture of Obama’s shoes. The irony of all of this is that Palin was sold as being “one of us,” “us” being average folk. People are losing jobs, their homes, and trying to keep up with rising costs, yet this woman gets to have a designer shopping spree that even many celebrities would envy! If I were a Republican party member, I think that I would cancel my membership over this.

    Truly disgusting – it is now clear to me, Palin harms the McCain campaign.

    So long as it is legal then who cares?

    There was a Hollywood designer on CNN this afternoon saying 150K is not really that much.

    He said you can rack up a bill for 50 grand on just a few items.

    I’ve just begun reading the blogs on this website and find them informative and VERY interesting. I cannot fathom the ability the Palin/McCain campaign has for “talking with forked tongues”. They are attempting to bad mouth someone who has consistently taken the high road from the first debate to the current time. Senator Obama does not now nor has he in the past ever brought to the forefront some of the adverse sayings being spouted by the Republican ads in our media. Spending state funds, campaign funds and the money others give for campaign use and for state taxes is a travesty. Palin appears to be spending like there is no bottom to the money pit which says something about her personality and family values. We really don’t care what these folks wear as long as they dress in clean and appropriate attire. We should be concerning ourselves with what’s really important and that’s the economy, health and education issues. We need to work together toward electing the person who will best serve our needs and the needs of our children and grandchildren. The only person now addressing these concerns is Barrack Obama.

    The really scary thing here is that there are enough stupid people out there who will not get any less stupid November 4th and will vote for a candidate who was stupid enough to choose someone as stupid as her.
    Think about it, someone out there voted for the current menso.
    Twice.

    For all you good socialists out there who think Obamas socialist agenda will be packed full of all kinds of free government hand-outs, you are probably right. Once our government has become completely socialized then the people will be put on an equal playing field with no one better off than the next. When this happens everyone will be equally poor, equally needy and equally suppressed by the government. After that the Constitution will be meaningless. The first amendment (freedom of speech) will be struck down, then the second amendment (right to bear arms) will be struck down, etc. etc.

    All you good socialist out there will be content to have the government care for you from the cradle to the grave without, or allowed, having to make any personal decisions for yourself. The Socialist Republic of ______ will replace what was once the United States of America unless Obama is stopped dead in his tracks.

    Consider his entire life of shady characters and the people he has refered to as his mentors:

    Subject: A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
    This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since than. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. About six months ago, I started thinking ‘where did the money come from for Obama’. I have
    four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans.

    I started looking into Obama’s life.

    Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. ‘Barry’ (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates,
    Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan .
    During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a ’round the world’ trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia , next Hyderabad in India , three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family. My question – Where did he get the
    money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia
    University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia ? It’s not cheap! to say the least. Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe. After Columbia , he went to Chicago to work as a
    Community Organizer for $12,000. a year. Why Chicago ? Why not New York ? He was already living in New York .

    By ‘chance’ he met Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria , and a real estate developer in
    Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year. Rezko, was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Decade’ by the Arab-American Business and Professional
    Association’. About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School . Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School ? Where did he get the money for Law School ? More student loans? After Law school, he went
    back to Chicago . Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented ‘Rezar’ which Rezko’s firm. Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in
    Chicago . In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with ‘seed
    money’ for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans – Where did he get the money for the property?
    On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home
    was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

    Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz , Iran ! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I
    going crazy?

    On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was ‘sacked’ after the press found out he was having regular contacts with ‘Hamas’, which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran . This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers
    reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will ‘Take care of things’.

    Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that where born in Pakistan ? They are in charge of all those ‘small’ Internet campaign contribution for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class
    in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East. And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on ‘This Week’ with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, ‘My Muslim faith’.
    When questioned, ‘he make a mistake’. Some mistake!

    All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it – Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times – Obama visited
    Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times – September 7, 2008;
    The Times May 10, 2008.

    Now the BIG question – If I found out all this informationon my own, Why haven’t all of our ‘intelligent’ members of the press been reporting this?

    A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear – ‘Beware of the enemy from within’!!

    This was an investigative study into the life of Obama and clearly shows he is not right for America. He is a fraud and not who he presents himself to be.

    Eyes of Texas,

    I’m going to ask that you stop posting that same forward or whatever it is, “Wolf in sheep’s clothing.” You have posted it three times here in the past two days. You obviously didn’t write it. You aren’t adding anything to the discussion.

    How do Barack Obama’s travel experiences as a young man have anything to do with Sarah Palin’s designer wardrobe? You can’t even stay on topic. The “socialist card” is the last thing you have to play, and it isn’t working. Explain to me how Obama’s economic advisers would ever go along with such a scheme. Warren Buffen, Lawrence Summers, and Paul Volker aren’t exactly socialists.

    You sound like the one who belongs to a flock of sheep. You cannot post anything original without resorting to some forward that has been passed around the internet. And you are completely oblivious as to how Sarah Palin has been spending your party’s funds for clothes, but you might be stupid enough to think that rags are a good investment.

  • 7 EYES OF TEXAS // Oct 23, 2008 at 9:15 am

    Ok, I’ll not post it again since actual facts are not what the Obama sheeple can understand. As for Palins designer wardrobe, it’s no different than the tax payers money being used to wine, dine and lodge Obamas wife and kids when they’re on the campaign trail with him. Instead of being concerned about Palins expenses, you should be more concerned about Obamas birh certificate that he has yet to produce. Several states have law suites in process that state if Obama can not produce an original birth certificate by election day his name will be struck from the ballots. Also want to mention the article was not mine and not about travel expenses, but about Obamas questionable associates that have shaped his political mind set. If everyone would take the time to research Obama instead of being so much in awe of his demeanor and caught up in his lies there would be no doubt that he will bring our nation to the depths of hell.

    Webmaster…, thank you for dropping that paranoid idiot Eyes of Texas from your blog. He offers nothing to meaningful dialogue. I ‘ll bet he can’t define socialism and its the latest word he picked up from equally stupid Joe “the plumber”. It is a hypocracy to have Sarah Palin talk about average people then have her out spending party money as if she was a drunken sailor on shore leave. If I were a republican contributor, I would be asking for my contribution back.

  • 9 webmaster // Oct 23, 2008 at 3:48 pm

    Jammer,

    Eyes of Texas is welcome to continue posting, but I will not tolerate parrot like behavior where the same e-mail forward is repeatedly posted. It doesn’t add anything to the debate.

    I completely agree. If I were a Republican, I would not want to see my contribution going towards a shopping spree at Neiman Marcus. I thought that Republicans were supposed to be fiscally conservative.

  • 10 Michaelr // Oct 23, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    Voters registered as Republicans today don’t know what fiscally conservative means. That ideal died with Barry Goldwater.

    I’m going to play devil’s advocate today. Palin’s wardrobe costs, while exorbitant, are the least of my worries. I can’t imagine what Hillary’s funky pantsuit budget is, but I’m sure she has paid quite a bit to maintain her polished image. John Edwards was dinged for his costly hair cuts. I’m thinking that Miss “Almost” Alaska was in need of appropriate clothing — stuff that did not come in camouflage!

    What I can’t overlook is Sarah Palin’s absolute lack of understanding of how the US government operates. Did you catch her response to third grader Brandon Garcia about what the Vice President does. Once again, Palin demonstrates she has no clue what her job will be and that she has not even read the salient portions of the constitution! Troopergate provides us with additional concerns about Palin in the VP chair. This is a person willing to use public office for a personal vendetta. If she were to be elected, would she elbow her way into the Senate and Supreme Court to use her “maverick” mandate to eliminate our fundamental rights?

    Here’s a shout out to all the remaining PUMAs and vacillating voters — with Obama/Biden we can be assured that their administration will operate within the constraints of the constitution. With McCain/Palin we have no freakin’ idea what they might do!

    In the name of decency, human dignity, and rationality, vote OBAMA/BIDEN!!

    Meet the real Palin…..a must see

    Obama/Biden will operate within the constraints of the Constitution, but only after they amend it to eliminate freedom of speech and ban hand guns from all citizens. Those two amendments will only be the beginning of Obamas agenda to convert America in to a socialist nation. Big government to care and provide for every individual from the cradle to the grave is not what America wants or needs. Obama will be stopped before he has a chance to destroy our nation.

  • 14 mike // Oct 29, 2008 at 7:52 am

    Well after all…she’s just an ordinary working mother…just like all the other working mothers out there with $150K wardrobe budgets! Hypocracy anyone? It’s kind of hard to accuse the other guy of being an elitist when you are wearing Valentino!

  • 15 Reyfeo // Nov 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

    I think the bigger picture here is how a “woman” vice-presidential candidate is being taken to task…over what? Wardrobe cost? Please!!

    What kills me is why the women (and those who blog here included) aren’t upset with the way this woman (Palin) is being mauled, becuase she is a Woman! Can you say Hilary round 2! Would we care about her wardrobe cost if she were man? Probably not…and SO I ASK, is anybody going to ask the boys about thier wardrobes? Didn’t think so!

    Hey, i’m latino, and prefer to talk about the real issues, really don’t care about this wardrobe thing. That said, does anybody care that Obama is pro-abortion, likes higher taxes and has NEVER done a one THING for the latino man or woman! And what about those associations with Amercian haters?

  • 16 rick // Oct 25, 2009 at 6:15 pm

    you talk about Gov.Palen’s wardrobe.
    if you were unbiased in your reporting you would write articles about the amount spent on Michelle Obama’s wardrobe. but no, you conveniently will not write about that. what an adjenda you have ,why not try to report period,and leave your bias out of it.you are a joke,and should be ashamed of your half truths
    shame on you
    you are a phony
