From Facebook:

Finished strong in the Iron Dog! Todd just told me, “Along with the competition, this was another great trip across Alaska seeing old friends in villages. Honored to have a picture with Alaska’s famous elder, Sydney Huntington. (He’s the one who gave us the quote, ‘Common sense is an endangered species in government.’) I’m overwhelmed by the hospitality and support shown to us in each town and village. I love these folks. It was a rough and tough race, but I’m glad we were able to finish, and I kept in mind I was racing in honor of our fallen warriors who secure our freedom.”

Todd’s race winnings are donated to The Chris Kyle Memorial Fund. For the kids and me, we’re proud of our Iron Dogger, especially his dedication to family and freedom.

– Sarah Palin

The Palins continue their unwavering support for an American hero.

Conservatives rip rose-colored glasses off of Obama’s ‘vision for America’

@cnnpolitics: Obama: My vision for America at.cnn.com/fhht8m. If we get four more years of Obama the poor, middleclass & rich will lose.

—Brock Xerox (@BrockXerox) November 2, 2012

This morning, CNN published competing “visions for America.” Mitt Romney’s offered solutions such as energy independence, reduced spending, tax reform, and cutting regulations that hurt small businesses. Barack Obama’s, complete with an editor’s note reminding readers that he is, in fact, President of the United States, was rife with the usual platitudes about moving forward, fair shares, and, of course, hope ‘n change, change, change!

Change is an America where we reduce our deficit by cutting spending where we can, and asking the wealthiest Americans to go back to the income tax rates they paid when Bill Clinton was president. I’ve worked with Republicans to cut a trillion dollars of spending, and I’ll do more. I’ll work with anyone of any party to move this country forward. But I won’t agree to eliminate health insurance for millions of poor, elderly, or disabled on Medicaid, or turn Medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire’s tax cut.

President Obama’s deficit-reducing strategy of cutting spending by increasing spending hasn’t panned out so well. It’s probably some millionaire’s fault.

The folks at the very top don’t need another champion in Washington. The people who need a champion in Washington are the Americans whose letters I read at night; the men and women I meet on the trail every day. The cooks and cleaning staff working overtime at a Las Vegas hotel. The furniture worker retraining for a career in biotechnology at age 55. The teacher who’s forced to spend less time with each student in her crowded classroom. Her kids, who dream of becoming something great. Every small business owner trying to expand and do right by his or her employees — all of these Americans need a champion in Washington.

Does he mean the small business owner who owes his or her success to somebody else who made that happen?

When these Americans do well, America does well. That’s the change we need right now. It’s time to finish what we’ve started — to educate our kids, train our workers, create new jobs, new energy, and new opportunity — to make sure that no matter who you are, where you come from, or how you started out, this is the country where you can make it if you try.

Barf. After four years of Barack Obama, it should be obvious to anyone that the man is disingenuous. The Left, of course, continues to lap up the sort of swill laid out in the president’s “vision,” but conservatives aren’t blind:

Yes. Yes it does. But not for much longer. Our vision of Obama is in our rearview mirror.

How This Little Girl Owned Her Babysitter Is Hysterical. But I Won’t Lie… I’m A Little Scared.

There are some things you just don’t do as a babysitter, and this girl just committed one of the worst offenses of them all…she bad mouthed Barbie. Talking smack about Barbie just so happens to be a terminable offense to cousin Mia, as seen in this adorable letter she wrote to her older cousin letting her know the babysitting position was no longer hers.

You know what they say; talk smack and you get smacked. Source: imgur Share this cute and funny note with your friends below.
