Governor Palin talked to Sean Hannity last night about whether she is considering a run for President in 2016 and what her priorities would be. Her answer about whether she would run is that it is too early to know yet and that her considerations would include her family and God’s divine guidance. She gave a long list of conservative priorities, which can be found in the video above and in the excerpts below from the transcript that can be found in full here on the Hannity site.
———————HANNITY: Are you considering for 2016 a run for the presidency? Are you thinking about it?——————PALIN: Oh, I, along with so many others on a deep bench, no doubt are thinking about it. But it’s much too early to say whether I, and I’m sure others would answer the same way, they would be throwing their hat in the ring.———————-HANNITY: All right, we do expect — I mean, come March, April, a lot of people are on the ground in Iowa. You were in Iowa for the speech. They’re putting together campaign teams, hiring people on the ground. Are you talking to people about that? I mean, walk us through the thought process for you in terms of what it means…—————PALIN: Well, my thought process personally, and you know, near and dear to my heart, of course, obviously, would be my family and receiving their blessing to go forth as first and foremost. And of course, being a Christian, putting my life in God’s hands, seeking guidance and inspiration divinely as to whether to run or not is — that’s top of the list.———————-As for the practical, logistical steps you take, yes, I have a small team. And of course, that would expand if any decision were to be made to move forward. And in the meantime, you know, I’m going to continue to do what I’m doing, and that’s helping find other candidates in other positions to get out there and do what’s right for their cities, their states, for our country because the middle class, as I said in that Iowa speech, really is getting the shaft with policies coming down from, in a lot of cases the state levels, certainly the federal level, that are hurting working class Americans.————————[…]—————————–PALIN: Remember at the GOP acceptance speech back in ’08, the teleprompter broke there, too. It didn’t work, and I kept on going. So no, you know, I don’t know. I received a standing ovation throughout, and at the end of the speech. So I don’t know. I think a lot of this herd mentality of some reporters would — that kind of exacerbates some of the criticism.———————-But I don’t know what (INAUDIBLE) really would, when you talk about the meat, the content of the speech, would criticize when I talk about courage and integrity and a track record of any candidate that is needed in order to be able to sincerely serve the people of America, who deserve real hope and real change, and not more of the same, not more of the status quo, this old energy, if you will. But we need new energy, new ideas. And as I say, very, very important that we have a track record proving what works.——————–But what I also made a point of in that speech, Sean, and this is important, is knowing what the media is going to do throughout 2016. And my prediction, Hillary will be running and she will be, you know, the knighted candidate on the left and with the media. Knowing what the media is going to do, it’s going to take more than a village to beat Hillary. There needs to be unity, understanding that we have that — conservatives have that strike against us, you know, right off the bat. That being the media. Even there on FOX, you know, kind of a quasi or assumed conservative outlet, and we have all day listened in to the tease of Bill O’Reilly. He’s talking about the guests on his show tonight or the commentary on his show. And that would be, Oh, all these GOP contenders thinking about running for president, like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, and he names them off. He says, Oh, what a reality show that would be, yuck, yuck.——————–Well, the left doesn’t do that, OK? They take this serious because this is war. And hopefully, the media, even the quasi right side of the media, won’t be looking at this as some kind of reality show, a joke, because maybe they have theirs…———————
HANNITY: So my question to you is, if you did decide to run, what would be the — what are the things that you would tell people? I’m looking for somebody that’s going to say, I’m going to do this, this, and this, I’m going to get people out of poverty, I’m going to balance the budget, I’m going to be energy independent, I’m going to secure the borders. What’s your agenda? What would be — what would be your message?———————PALIN: Bingo! Check, check, check those (ph). Absolutely. We are going to drill, baby, drill. We’re going to become energy independent. We’re not going to scoot on over to the Saudis and ask them to develop for us, to prohibit any kind of adverse effect of some future energy crisis. We’re going to do it ourselves.——————–We’re going to slash the corporate income tax. We are going to put chasing jobs off our shores onto foreign lands. (sic) We’re going to secure our borders because we know that a country without borders is not a country. There’s no hope for solvency sovereignty without borders.——————-We’re going to make sure that we have an education system that is in the hands locally, not a big federal level one-size-fits-all Common Core type of education curriculum, but locally putting the teachers and the students first, not bureaucracy.——————–And we’re going to take on crony capitalists who have utterly destroyed the middle class because they’ve been the ones being able to receive these loopholes and build more loopholes in tax formulas and in favoritism from a federal budget because they can afford the lobbyists and they can afford the lawyers to make sure that laws are written in their favor.——————So we’re going to take on things like that, that corruption, and we’re going to put America back on the right track because America deserves the best. We are exceptional. We’re losing that today.——————–HANNITY: All right…———————PALIN: And we certainly need candidates who are willing to be…———————-HANNITY: Last question…————————-PALIN: … competitors, fighters for this…————————–HANNITY: Odds…———————–PALIN: … to prove it.————————HANNITY: Odds you’re running?————————PALIN: I’m not going to give any odds. I still say it’s too early. It’s too early.——————[…]———————-
