View Full Version : Palin's First Major Gaffe

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Gov. Sarah Palin made her first potentially major gaffe during her time on the national scene while discussing the developments of the perilous housing market this past weekend.

Speaking before voters in Colorado Springs, the Republican vice presidential nominee claimed that lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had "gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers." The companies, as McClatchy reported, "aren't taxpayer funded but operate as private companies. The takeover may result in a taxpayer bailout during reorganization."

Economists and analysts pounced on the misstatement, saying it demonstrated a lack of understanding about one of the key economic issues likely to face the next administration.

"You would like to think that someone who is going to be vice president and conceivable president would know what Fannie and Freddie do," said Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. "These are huge institutions and they are absolutely central to our country's mortgage debt. To not have a clue what they do doesn't speak well for her, I'd say."

Added Andrew Jakabovics, an economic analysts for the progressive think tank, Center for American Progress: "It is somewhat nonsensical because up until yesterday there was sort of no public funding there. Even today they haven't drawn down any of the credit line they have given to Treasury. 'Gotten too big and too expensive' are two separate things. The too big has been a conservative mantra for a while and there is something to be said of that in that they hold about half of the mortgage guarantees that are out there. And in the last year they have been responsible for roughly 80 percent out there. The 'too expensive to tax payers,' I don't know where that comes from."

Even conservative analysts acknowledged that the statement simply did not hold true.

"Heretofore, if the treasury had a balance sheet there would have been a liability but there was never a taxpayer payment before [the bailout]," said Gerald P. O'Driscoll, an economist with the Cato Institute. "[Fannie and Freddie] were not taxpayer funded. They had taxpayer guarantee, which is worth something, especially in the stock market..."

The Palin misstatement comes as Fannie and Freddie are set to be placed under control of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, created by President Bush in late July to help regulate the two housing giants. Both presidential candidates have been critical of Fannie and Freddie but neither is opposed to the government's plans for the companies. The treasury is hoping that the government's role will help stabilize credit markets and incentive more mortgage lending.

"With the takeover they will be taxpayer funded," said O'Driscoll. "As I understand it they get to withdraw funds with permission going forward."

How politically significant a "gaffe" it is remains to be seen. The major concern about Palin's position on the ticket is that she lacks the economic and foreign policy wherewithal to serve as vice president. This certainly doesn't help on that front. At the same time, the remark went almost entirely unnoticed over the weekend and discussions on the developments of the housing market can be difficult to process for even the most attuned voter.

There are varying explanations that could be offered for Palin's defense. As O'Driscoll noted, both Fannie and Freddie "were hybrid institutions because they had private ownership but... an implicit government guarantee which people thought at the end of the day was explicit." Meanwhile, as Baker noted, as of July the two lenders were being offered low market interest rates by the fed again, theoretically, at the taxpayer's expense. But, he added, "I kind of doubt she had any sense of that."

NOTE FROM JOHN: Joe just pointed something out to me, the part where our reader asks Palin if she's going to vote for Ted Stevens and she replies, "he's under indictment, you know." Yes, we do know, Sarah. But we find it awfully interesting that the GOP vice presidential nominee thinks that the appropriate point for Alasans to remember this fall when considering whether to vote for Ted Stevens or Mark Begich, that when it comes to considering Ted Stevens, "he's under indictment, you know."

NOTE FROM JOE: Jim, who sent us this post and photos, has now asked Sarah Palin more questions than the entire political press corps COMBINED. Nice work, Jim. If only the traditional media types could be so industrious.
___________________________

An AMERICAblog reader was having lunch in Albuquerque, New Mexico today, when who should drop in for a substance-less photo opp? John McCain and Sarah Palin. And you'll be surprised to know that when both of them were asked polite but substantive questions by our reader, they refused to answer. He's such a maverick, that John McCain. And she has so much substance, it's scary, that Sarah Palin. Here's our reader's first hand report from the afternoon that they made Sarah Palin confront a real question from a real human being:
Our family today had an interesting encounter that I wanted to share with you. We were eating at El Pinto restaurant in Albuquerque. It is the most popular New Mexican restaurant in town, a large sprawling compound with a number of dinning rooms and patio spaces.

We were eating outside in the patio closest to the main road and had just finishing lunch when I saw the McCain bus drive by! It was followed closely by a number of police motorcycles, secret service SUVS, and press vans. It was obvious they were coming to El Pinto!

We figured we'd head out and see if we could get a closer look. I decided this might be my one chance, to ask one question of each candidate. I carried Caterina (16 months) along with me to meet the candidates.

I worked my way through a number of other dinners and secret service and finally got to the patio on the other side of the restaurant. I could see John McCain ahead of me shaking hands with folks. Sorry the picture is so blurry. I had a baby in one arm and an iPhone in the other!

McCain worked his way up to me and Cat and as I shook his hand, I asked, "Sir, I respect your service but, why were you against the GI bill?" Senator McCain, paused, he looked a bit surprised at the question and then he said, "Nice to meet you." I repeated the question and he repeated his non-answer. He quickly worked his way down the line. So much for straight-talk!

I have been genuinely curious as to why he wouldn't support a bill so important to veterans (McCain opposed this bill from the beginning and then skipped the vote). Also, I was surprised at myself as I as I almost involuntarily prefaced my question with, "Sir, I respect your service but..." No wonder he's gotten a free ride by the press, I think this reaction is not unique and the press must feel the same pressure that I felt. Perhaps that explains why his poor support for veteran issues isn't well known.

Sarah Palin was next! I couldn't resist trying for a better photo. It is still blurry, but talk about a close encounter.

Sarah first looked at Caterina said hello, and I shook her hand. I asked, "Are supporting Ted Stevens this year?" She replied, "He's under indictment you know...his trial is in September." I replied, "But are you voting for him?" She walked away without answering.

I don't think this question will be answered until after Senator Stevens' trial in September and perhaps never. After all, Ted Stevens is still running for the Senate this year and a Republican vote, corrupt or not, is still a Republican vote. I was amazed that she offered up, "He's under indictment you know." She's going to need some serious handling before they let her into the wild!

I followed Governor Palin out and they stopped to purchase some salsa. This whole stop was just a photo-op and my questions, any questions were obviously not part of the script. No townhall meeting here.

After less than 15 minutes at the Restaurant the Straight-NoTalk Express headed out.

My wife Angela was at the entrance with my son Andrea holding up a home made Obama sign and shouting at McCain, Palin and the press. It made me very proud. A memorable lunch at El Pinto.

Jim, Angela, Andrea and Caterina

Tell it to the Republican Fed, and his predecessor who let it happen. Tell it to the antiregulation, bottom line only, Republicans, who have sold this country out since Reagan. Tell it to the Neocons, like Delay, Abramoff, Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, and all the others who have given no bid contracts and privatized government, war, torture, and every other thing they do so they don't have to be bothered with accountability.

Why should be she jealous?
Palin is a light-weight who was picked for several cynical reasons and certainly not for her experience or know how.
The main reason [ IMO ] she was picked was to create a distraction. ie her main job is to 'draw fire' from McCain and let him have an easy run up to the election.
Where is the scrutiny in the media about McCain's war record?
eg,
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">McCain graduated in the bottom 1% of his flight school class. He was number 894 out of a class of 899...? </div></div> Not really surprising he got shot down? LOL



Palin is a RW religious nut who lied in the first speech she made at the Rep Con. What she is is a sneak.

Palin by accepting the VP offer cast her young daughter to the wolves. ie, she sacrificed her daughter for her own political ambitions.

She supported the bridge to nowhere before she was against it.
She believes the Iraq war is "God's war."
She is member of a FANATICAL RW Church.

What more do you need to know?

I don't agree with any of her, or McCain's policies. You have every right to make your own choices. Sara has every right, also. I have a right to vote against two decietful liars, who would be very destructive and against the best interests of America, and she is just as bad for this country as he would be.

I did, and for months of posting found reason after reason why Obama isn't fit for the White House... most from you. And I see no reason why he is any more qualified now than before. And to be fair, you were always definitely NOT gonna be behind McCain in any way shape or form.

Anyone wanting a Hillary vs. Sarah smackdown might be in for a letdown. First, Sarah Palin launched her Republican vice presidential campaign with praise for the strides made by Hillary Rodham Clinton in her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination. On Monday, Clinton spoke in kind.


"It is a great accomplishment," Clinton said of Palin's selection as the GOP's first female running mate. Clinton told a rally of 500 that the election will be decided on issues, not the historical significance of the candidates, and Democrat Barack Obama and his running mate Joe Biden bring more to the table than the Republican ticket.


"Women as well as men make their decisions after they weigh the evidence," Clinton said. "As Americans go into that voting booth, what they have to ask themselves is not so much who am I for, as who is for me? And I don't think it's an even close question that we have the ticket that is going to do the best job in restoring the American promise."


About the most she'd say about Palin is that she and Republican presidential candidate John McCain "are not the change that we need."


Former Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson is dismissing any notion the Obama campaign would dispatch Clinton to take on Palin, as much as he thinks some people would revel in seeing the two strong women butt heads.

Humh!

Ed has spent the better part of 7 years commenting on the Clinton affair, and equating it to the Bush lies to congress, re the war.
Apparently now, McCain's private affairs are sacrosanct, and any comments about him are downright Un-American.
Ed's in good company though:
" Bill O'Reilly, host of The O'Reilly Factor, calls many of his guests "un-American" when they disagree with O'Reilly's views. Also, the term (or similar sentiments) has been used by Bush supporters in the media to describe actions or beliefs that are critical of U.S. government foreign policy or domestic agenda."

It was a lie from your revisionist memory.

Now go back to sleep lap dog, I am sure gayle is not too happy about your running off on your own.

Listen numskull, YOU made the claim the G was jealous, all I am asking is WHY you think that. YOU are typical GOP, you flap at the mouth, make accusations and when challenged you dry up.

LOL

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Palin is a RW religious nut who lied in the first speech she made at the Rep Con. What she is is a sneak.

Palin by accepting the VP offer cast her young daughter to the wolves. ie, she sacrificed her daughter for her own political ambitions.

She supported the bridge to nowhere before she was against it.
She believes the Iraq war is "God's war."
She is member of a FANATICAL RW Church.

What more do you need to know?</div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">LOL, you completely ignored the discussion Gayle and I were having about Palin's quote about Fannie and Freddie.</div></div>

What discussion?
Is she against the bail out?
Why aren't these two 'Mavericks'[ LOL] screaming about this waste of taxpayer money that Palin herswelf said was 'too expensive'?

If you watch the McCain campaign, GW never existed. The last 8 years never happened.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">What discussion?</div></div>I applaud you Q. This was a long time coming but maybe you are turning the corner. This is the first instance I can remember in years where you actually admit you have no idea what we are talking about.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">If you watch the McCain campaign, GW never existed.

If anything, the last 8 years have been insanely expensive and if McCain wins the election then I hope he listens to the Conservatives and starts to drastically reduce spending.
