Sarah Palin's Interview With Judge Jeanine Pirro
In case you missed it, here is Sarah Palin's interview with Jeanine Pirro. They talk about the budget deal, President Obama's ineffectiveness as a leader, and Paul Ryan's budget road map. Pirro also throws in a question about Trump's quest to find Obama's birth certificate.
As you can imagine, Sarah wasn't impressed with Obama's "leadership" in this mess. She was also angered by Obama's use of the military as a pawn in all of this.She had written: Commander in Chief’s Appalling Action with Our Troops prior to the appearance on Pirro's show. Sarah said that Obama deserved absolutely no credit whatsoever for the budget deal.
Sarah talked about Congressman Paul Ryan's budget road map. She called the plan, which cuts $6 trillion in 10 years a "good start." This signals to me that a President Palin will do in Washington what she did in Juneau, and slash spending to the bone.
As our readers know Sarah was one of the first to endorse Ryan's plan, which she did in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal back in December. She's still the leading endorser of this bold plan.
Judge Pirro couldn't resist asking about Donald Trump's "quest" to find Obama's elusive birth certificate. Sarah had the right answer for her.
This subject has been discussed to death everywhere for better than three years. For the record, I agree with Sarah Palin. Obama was likely born in America, but it's odd that he has spent over $2 million paying lawyers to fight any attempt to force him to produce his actual birth certificate. We can leave it to the conspiracy theorists to ask why this is.
Personally, I think Obama has an eligibility problem, but it has nothing to do with where he was born. Suffice it to say, since Obama's father, if indeed Barack Obama Sr is his father, this is where the problem lies.
Obama Sr. was not a U.S. citizen. He was a British subject. That means Obama Jr. was not "natural born" as the Founders meant, and the Constitution insists on. The birth certificate nonsense is nothing but a distraction.
Anyhow, Sarah sounds reasonable here with her answer. From the way she answered the questions about "The Donald" I got the impression she had her tongue firmly planted in her cheek. By that I mean she seemed to be amused that Trump is spending time and effort on this useless exercise, rather than discussing the serious issues of the day.
As she said: "More power to him." I wonder if that's Alaskan for "Well bless his heart"!
Trump's nonsense aside, great interview. Enjoy.
