Sarah Palin's $150,000 Clothing Allowance
BFD. The RNC and Palin were doing exactly what Barack Hussein Obama, Junior wants them to do; spreading the wealth around. What's wrong with that? That's what The Liberal Messiah says he will do if elected.
Meanwhile, take a look at what the Obama campaign spends money on. Open Secrets:
[To date, Obama has spent $187.85 million dollars on media].
Fundr Direct Mail/Telemarketing: $23,527,966
Parties (Fed & Non-federal): $3,775,359
Broadcast Media: $160,446,232
Charitable Donations: $26,455
$21.5 Million on polling. On Polling, mind you!
Parties: Damn near $4 Million. I guess the economy is increasing the prices of cocaine, crack and pot too. Hey, dealers have bills to pay! The price of illegal drugs apparently has gone up since Obama was puffing on pot and crack on a regular basis.
$160.4 Million on Broadcast media, when the media is entirely in the tank for Obama already!
And a paltry, miserly sum of $26,455 to charity. Disgusting with a capital "D". Well, Liberals are certainly not known for their charity, altruism or goodwill, this much we know. We know this because the Obamas charitable donations are atrociously cheap and the Bidens are even more miserly when it comes to charity than the Obamas!
Hot Air points out that there is nothing illegal or against FEC regulations with the RNC spending money for clothing for Governor Palin; not unless she planned to keep the clothing which she does not.
The Liberals and The Obama Cultists, in a weak and flaccid attempt, are trying to tie this $150,000 story into Palin's reimbursed expenditures in Alaska, which has all been vetted and found to be within the law.
Palin was reimbursed for expenses and received per diems all according to what is allowed and permitted under the law. WaPo:
Gubernatorial spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said Monday that Palin's expenses are not unusual and that, under state policy, the first family could have claimed per diem expenses for each child taken on official business but has not done so.
"As a matter of protocol, the governor and the first family are expected to attend community events across the state," she said. "It's absolutely reasonable that the first family participates in community events."
The state finance director, Kim Garnero, said Alaska law exempts the governor's office from elaborate travel regulations. Said Leighow: "The governor is entitled to a per diem, and she claims it."
But Leighow said many of the hundreds of invitations Palin receives include requests for her to bring her family, placing the definition of "state business" with the party extending the invitation.
Let's not forget here, it is not Sarah Palin who has her own, personal, fitness trainer that she sees four times a week. No, that honor goes to Michelle Pickles Obama, The Dangerous Washerwoman.
It's the same tired double standard from the Libs, Bug. We both know no Republican candidate could raise the sums Obammy has and Liberals not say, "he's buying the White House." But when one of their own does it, they are suddenly stricken mute. Amazing, isn't it?
