Palin Attacks Obama Admin's Child Farm Labor Regulations And Hey Presto They Are Rescinded

Sarah Palin-the supposed "irrelevant" one- posted this on Facebook two days ago

Governor Palin: If I Wanted America to Fail, I’d Ban Kids From Farm Work


The Obama Administration is working on regulations that would prevent children from working on our own family farms. This is more overreach of the federal government with many negative consequences. And if you think the government’s new regs will stop at family farms, think again.
My family is a commercial fishing family, and commercial fishing in Alaska is much like the family farm (but the year ’round farmers no doubt work harder than we do!). I guarantee fishing families wouldn’t stand for this nonsensical intrusion into our lives and livelihoods, and, as a former 4-H member, I don’t believe farm families will either. Our kids learn to work and to help feed America on our nation’s farms, and out on the water.
Federal government: get your own house in order and stop interfering in ours.
- Sarah Palin

Government apologists hit back and stated that Palin had it all wrong there was no such regulation in the pipeline.

The American Catholic strongly attacked the Obama Admin's plans too AT THIS LINK "Nanny state down at the farm"

But today, in shades of "death panels" reaction 
this happens;

"Obama administration said Thursday it would drop an unpopular plan to prevent children from doing hazardous work on farms owned by anyone other than their parents.
The Labor Department said it is withdrawing proposed rules that would ban children younger than 16 from using most power-driven farm equipment, including tractors. The rules also would prevent those younger than 18 from working in feed lots, grain bins and stockyards."

Palin is right-she doesn't need the actual title of president as she can run things quite comfortably from Wassila and when things get out of kilter she just has to make a Facebook comment and hey presto things are back in balance
