Sarah Palin was on America's Nightly Scoreboard with David Asman Friday night. Asman asked her about You Tube celebrity Chris Christie right off the bat, mentioning the fact Christie claims he wasn't inspired by anyone in the Republican Party. Sarah tells Asman that she finds great inspiration in the Common Sense conservatives who are willing to serve, then she offers this up:
And with all due respect to Governor Christie, you know he has no choice but to cut budgets because he’s broke, his state is broke. What courage really is, is in the face of having a surplus when you have opportunity to spend spend spend other people’s money, you still choose to reign in government to let the private sector soar. That’s real courage, and by the way that’s what I did as Governor here when I engaged in hiring freezes and reduced earmarks by 86% and vetoed the largest amounts in our state’s history. Despite having a surplus that’s real leadership and that’s courage.
But I do appreciate that Governor Christie is willing to face the reality in his state and that is that they are going bankrupt. So he has to cut, he has no choice.
Christie's thin-skinned fan boys lost it when Sarah said this and accused her of attacking their guy. Never mind the GOP's flavor-of-the-month has been talking trash about Sarah for months, trying to ingratiate himself with the D.C. cocktail set.
In his latest nonsensical statement, Christie claimed Sarah needed more "unscripted moments." Yeah, I know, pathetic, but what do you expect from someone with nothing else going for him? This came a couple of days after Sarah was in Long Island, New York and did a 65 minute interview with a democrat host, in a mostly democrat crowd. Media from all around the world was there to cover the event. As you will see in the video, there was no script.

Thing is, Sarah Palin has been ignoring Christie's on-going jabs for months. So, she finally decides to let people know how petty and self centered he is, because he can't seem to find anyone inspiring out there in the Republican Party, and also to let the guy know making government smaller when there is a gun to your head is not as impressive as doing it when times are good, and no one is watching.
There's a lot more to the interview. Sarah talks in detail about the fiscal issues facing the nation.
Our friends at The Right Scoop have the video as well as video of her appearance with Bill O'Reilly that came right after the Fox Business News interview. Sadly the most noteworthy thing in that interview was Sarah telling O'Reilly to shut up so she could talk! She's trying to talk about entitlement reform, and O'Reilly being O'Reilly, won't let her get a word in edgewise. This is why we prefer it when Sarah is on Fox Business News. The anchors over there ask serious questions and allow their guests to answer them.
The interview with Asman is a must see. Check it all out here.
