Palin compares GOP establishment to spousal abusers
“They did it again. But like a battered wife, we keep going back because every four years they bring us flowers, beg our forgiveness, and swear they’ll never hit us again,” Palin wrote in an op-ed in Breitbart on Saturday.
“The GOP establishment in Congress is our abuser,” she added. “We can’t hide the black eyes any more. The whole neighborhood knows. The Democrats are gloating. Obama thanked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) effusively – and why shouldn’t he? Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t have given him more.”
Palin accused the conservative House Freedom Caucus of giving House Speaker Paul Ryan a pass to make a deal with Democrats. She discussed the work she and others put in to get conservatives elected, on the assumption that they would halt President Obama’s agenda.
“Instead, they abetted it,” she wrote. “They are Obama’s accomplices.”
