After ringing in the new year resolving to help Americans make government as irrelevant as possible, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin added another resolution on Saturday: be more aggressive in calling out the so-called “lamestream” media for their “lapdog laziness.”
She related how Richard Nixon’s presidency was ended once reporters busted him for spying, but Obama is celebrated even though one of his hallmarks has been the National Security Agency widespread spying programs.
Palin said she was glad to “hear the new political year kicked off with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) suing the President for violating our rights,” in reference to Paul’s class action lawsuit against the Obama administration’s spying programs. She said she too will “be even more aggressive in calling out media for practicing lapdog laziness,” Palin wrote in a Facebook post after returning from a “remote cabin” with no cell phone service.
“Hey reporters, we know that once Barack Obama got elected you bailed on keeping government accountable; you’ve been abject failures there,” she said. “Case in point: Nixon’s presidency was over once reporters busted him for allowing his people to spy on political opponents. Today, the Obama Presidency’s hallmark is spying (in addition to violating economic and Constitutional liberties), for which you celebrate Barack Obama. Transparently hypocritical, much?”
