Governor Palin talked with Uma Pemmaraju on ANHQ today at noon. Asked why she thought Republicans caved in by passing the Senate amnesty bill, Governor Palin said that she thought the Republicans and Democrats who caved in to Obama’s wishes to legalize illegal aliens showed lack of principle and of respect for the rule of law. She said, “This was an absolute betrayal of working class Americans who do respect the rule of law and legal immigrants who have come here and stood in line and paid their dues, if you will, and become new Americans.”
Governor Palin said that the bill was rushed through and does not solve any of the problems with illegal immigration and is an “absolute betrayal of the will of the people and the rule of law.” She said that there will be problems with the amnesty bill just as there have been with Obamacare, which was also rushed through without being read by most of those who voted on it, and that that is quite unfortunate.
Asked what she thought of Obama’s response this week over concerns about Snowden that he was “in no rush to pick up what he described as simply a hacker,” Governor Palin said that the problem is that the government has lied to us and it took Snowden to disclose that they are spying on our communications. However, she said, “if he has violated the law, he needs to get back here and answer to the rule of law, because we are still a nation that respects the rule of law, right? Even though the Amnesty Bill just thwarted all of that.” She said Obama’s choosing to “lead from behind” on this issue just reflects the Community Organizer in Obama, a lackadaisical attitude that he doesn’t have to take responsibilty. His resume, she said, proves that he hasn’t had to take responsibility for much over the years.
In answer to viewer Josh Page’s question whether she and Mark Levin would be “willing to build a Freedom Party if the GOP continues to ignore conservatives,” she said that she loved the name “Freedom Party,” and “if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and of Reagan” that more and more may choose not to be enlisted in either the Democrat or Republican private majority parties. “No one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”
