On the heels of her beat down via Facebook, on Tuesday morning, Sarah Palin went On The Record with Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night, where she continued to whip Obama like a rented mule.
Right out of the gate Greta highlighted one of Sarah's comments from the earlier Facebook post:
It’s unbelievable to me that you spent last week in campaign mode, gallivanting around the country to start raising the billion dollars for your reelection bid that is still 19 months away "while Rome burns." Our economy is in the tank; jobs are as scarce as ever; you’re asking Congress to let you incur even more unsustainable, immoral, freedom-stealing government debt; and many of our brave men and women in uniform are shaking their heads in disbelief over your befuddled military directions.After hammering Obama for being in campaign mode, and trying to raise $1 billion for an election that is [gulp] 19 months away, instead of focusing on the nation's challenges, she starts in on high gasoline prices, Libya [and Obama's incoherent foreign policy in general] and more.
Yet instead of working with Congress and a wise multitude of advisers to fix some problems, you choose all this campaigning, already? As was recently asked: When do you ever just "roll up your sleeves, unplug the teleprompter" and do the job of governing and administrating for which voters hired you?
Sarah reminds us we can't afford to have the nation's Commander-in-Chief, our CEO, in campaign mode while "Rome burns"!
Sarah goes on to say it's almost like Obama can't be bothered by all of these issues of the day because he's too busy either running for re-election, playing golf, or going on holiday!
She goes on to say, if that's the case, the best thing is for government to just get out of the way! Stop with the insane regulations, quantitative easing [printing money, monetizing the debt], coming up with more "stimulus plans" and other nonsense, and just let private businesses and the free market do it's thing!
Sarah bluntly states nothing is going to change until Obama is out of office.
This is a wonderful interview. Sarah Palin is proving she is a confident stateswoman, and very much at ease talking about issues and policy. This folks, is what a leader looks and sounds like. I know it's been a while since most have seen or heard one, which is why I point this out.
There is also a twinkle in Sarah's eyes. She's a warrior, but a happy one. She reminds me so much of the great Ronald Reagan. He was one tough hombre, but he was always happy and optimistic as well.
Sarah comes off the exact same way. Both in this interview, as well as her Facebook smack-down. She's tough, but not mean, and uses a fair bit of sarcasm and wit to go along with the beating she's giving Obama.
The entire interview is powerful, insightful, and even a bit of fun.
At one point she off-handedly mentions Bill Ayers and the fact that he "allegedly" wrote Obama's first book. She did this as she was taking a shot at Trump and others who were wasting time on nonsensical issues, while REAL issues were being ignored.
She points out the media is loving these distractions, as is the Obama regime.
As we have noted before, the "birther" issue helps Obama more than it hurts him. What she's saying is: Now that Trump has everyone's attention, he needs to be talking about substantive issues, something he is not doing.
This all gets back to what she told Sean Hannity last week, when she said it was way too early for her, or anyone else to be running for President. Too many more important issues to be focused on, rather than wasting time gearing up for 2012 and an election that is still almost 2 years away.
Leadership vs politics.
Sarah also gets a nice little shot in at Katie Couric at the end of the interview. Dee-licious!
