I know I said a few posts ago that I was done talking aboot Sarah Palin…but you’re never actually done talking aboot Sarah Palin. Just when you think we might actually get to focus on other potential leaders, she shows up on “Hannity” throwing a few bombs in the direction of the Obama Campaign Administration. Some highlights…
“Well, when you consider that the federal government is about eleven trillion dollars in debt, and we’re borrowing more to spend more.. it defies any sensible economic policy that any of us ever learned through college. It defies economy practices and principles that tell ya ‘you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial hole.’ America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government largesse. We’re borrowing. We’re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own sixty percent of GENERAL MOTORS – or the U.S. government does… But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? It’s China. So that leads you to have to ask who is really going to own our car industry than in America.”
“That’s how I feel! I feel like… and I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok… Maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America. And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead Sean it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.”
So what does this all have to do with the price of tea in China that we have to borrow from them to pay for? I still think she’s not running in 2012. If anything, after a successful re-election for Governor, I think she’s eyeing Mark Begich’s senate seat in 2014, who she seems to be going to war with lately.
That said, any R who has the (if you’ll excuse the expression) balls to actually criticize and challenge the Obama Campaign Administration, has my support. Of course the media is going to be saying, much like they are in the background as I’m writing this, that she’s the “wrong messenger” right now, because of approval ratings and/or whatever excuses they come up with. They said the same think aboot Dick Cheney speaking out on national security…and he kinda won that argument. If he did, Obama wouldn’t have need to go out and do damage control give his own speech.
If Sarah Palin sticks with Fox and cats like Larry Kudlow, and avoids the rest of the media who has made it clear they are looking to destroy her, she’ll be a powerful voice in our party whether Chris Matthews likes it or not.
