Gov. Palin on Greta: “It’s the Spending, Stupid!”

Posted by Ron Devito on July 26, 2011

“It’s the Spending, Stupid!” Governor Palin said near the conclusion of her single-segment interview with Greta Van Susteren tonight from her home studio in Wasilla, Alaska. Gov. Palin dismissed the August 2 deadline to raise the debt ceiling as “more Obama drama,” and noted that even US Treasurer Timothy Geithner said the United States will not default. “It will not be Armageddon, it’s not life or death,” Gov. Palin said.

“Scaring the American people is exactly what President Obama was doing in that bizarre speech last night…[he] is getting real good at fear-mongering,” Gov. Palin said. Obama’s policies are putting the country “on the path to bankruptcy” and the American public is tired of the games.”

“Congress needs to be reasonable and rational….Bankruptcy is on the way if we don’t control our over-spend.”

Gov. Palin said Congress should not retreat and there is no need to reinvent the wheel. “Cut, cap and balance passed the House. It was the right plan,” she said adding that the plan’s core elements are what common-sense conservatives want. The plan did not pass the Senate and Obama threatened to veto it.

Van Susteren noted that several Democrats including Richard Durbin and Harry Reid once supported a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Gov. Palin said that it was typical hypocrisy, saying one thing as a candidate, then doing the opposite once elected.

“They used to say ‘it’s the economy, stupid!’ Now, ‘it’s the spending, stupid!'” Gov. Palin said. She concluded that Obama’s economic policies are immoral and unethical by handing the bill for today’s spending to our children and grandchildren. “It does not make sense. Obama does not know what he is doing,” Gov. Palin said as the interview came to its close.

  1. Sarah is always acting the role model, always teaching. In this interview, besides the seriousness of the subject matter, Sarah was once again teaching the GOP how to speak about each other.

    Congressman Boehner has a bad plan for the country. He wants to add a trillion dollars to Obama’s spending ability while cutting a trillion dollars from future spending. That is Boehner wants to give Obama a trillion dollars now, and take it back over the next ten years. Obama will gladly take the trillion in spending but we will never see the cuts from this bill. In fact, all future promises from this administration are simply tools for buying time.

    Sarah however spoke nicely of Boehner, tried not to demean him in any way, applauded his attempt to get something done, but very nicely stated his plan would not be the right plan for the country.

    Over a 90-second span in Greta’s interview Sarah said, “Cut, Cap, & Balance,” I think four times. It is a tremendous plan, thank you Jim DeMint, and the message is clear, draw a line in the sand, right here, right now, and do not attempt to cross that line with other strategies.

    All new plans currently presented by the Republicans are fear-based and catch-22, that is, Republicans are responding to their fear of losing votes in the next elecion if they don’t get something (anything) passed. That mentality has to stop. If the U.S. economy is not righted fast, there will be ever more people on government assistance, and those people tend to vote for givaways, that is, Democrat.

    Sarah is a servant of the people and realizes that the way to help the country is to help people out of the Federal safety net, not help to herd them them…like cattle in a pen.

    Following that video clip, I was amused to watch (but could only get about half way through it, ’cause Matt Lauer is such a [redacted] and it’s hard to listen to his being an such idiot provacateur) part of an old clip of Palin’s interview with Lauer one week after the election in 2008, when he tried – but totally unsuccessfully – to elicit negative remarks from Palin about the campaign, her relationship with Sen. McCain and any perceived “friction” between his campaign staff and her. She’s SUCH a lady and spoke so well on her feet (sitting down, actually), that it put Lauer to shame – again, what a [redacted] he was and continues to be!!

    I also reflected how far she’s come in just less than 3 short years!! A natural leader and a really pro!!
