Palin Talks Republicans, Bashir & Christmas with Bill O’Reilly

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 6, 2013

Gov. Sarah Palin appeared with Bill O’Reilly last night at which time they covered a range of topics including Republicans, the TEA Party, Palin’s feistiness, Martin Bashir’s vile personal attack and Palin’s newest book “Good Tidings and Great Joy“.  In my opinion, Palin’s finest moment was her answer to O’Reilly’s line of questions on the Bashir incident.  (Starts at 4:00 mark.)

” I would have never allowed a corporate culture to have such low standards that that kind of vile talk was accepted.”  (Palin on Bashir, former MSNBC host.)

UPDATED! Gov. Palin talks to O’Reilly, Cavuto, and Hannity about the Ryan/Biden debate

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 12, 2012

Paul Scicchitano AT NewsMax reported on the O’Reilly interview:

Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin recalled thumbing through a stack of note cards, mostly on foreign policy issues, in preparation for her 2008 debate against Joe Biden. An attached note from the McCain campaign instructed “Memorize these.”

Therein may have been one of the problems for the ill-fated campaign.

“It all had to do with for the most part (with) foreign policy issues which were not top of the ticket in terms of issues at the time,” recalled Palin, appearing on Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor” in advance of Thursday’s vice presidential debate between her former rival and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.

“We should have talked more about the economy and how Barack Obama would lessen opportunities for economic recovery at the time,” Palin told host Bill O’Reilly.

“Instead, I was asked to memorize a whole lot of things about foreign policy that weren’t as relevant in the voters’ minds as the economy would.”

After looking at the note cards for a number of days, Palin tossed them aside “finally realizing how inconsistent and a bit convoluted some of the answers were,” she explained.

“You know at some point the candidate just has to kind of chuck those and decide ‘I will stand on my own record, my own philosophy, my own principles, making sure that they coincide with the top of the ticket’s views and we’ll go from there in the debate.’”

Although her interview with Hannity has been more widely reported on, Governor Palin introduced her musk ox analogy of the Ryan/Biden debate in the Cavuto interview.  She went on to respond to questions about economics and Biden’s mention of her name with his “death panels” remarks.  Gov. Palin clarified that the “death panel” of 15 bureaucrats is different from what Ryan had been talking about when Biden interjected his remark.    Governor Palin also critiqued Ryan’s and Biden’s performances and described Biden as the “attack dog” sent out by the Obama camp to raise some of the issues  that Obama failed to do in his interview with Romney.

.

Excerpted from the FOX News transcript:

SEAN HANNITY, HOST OF “HANNITY”: We’re live in Danville, Kentucky where just a short time ago the first and only vice presidential debate concluded. Joining me now is somebody who was, well, mentioned by the vice president tonight and that is former Republican vice presidential nominee, Governor Sarah Palin. Governor, welcome back to the program.

SARAH PALIN, FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: Thanks so much, Sean.

HANNITY: All right, let’s get your initial thoughts. I don’t think Joe Biden smiled as uncontrollably in your debate and nor do I think he was as rude and condescending. I’m hearing from a lot of people, on Twitter, e-mails all over the place that this did not go over very well tonight. Your thoughts?

PALIN: Well, I believe that Joe Biden was sent in as the attack dog in this debate to compensate for President Obama’s atrocious showing in his own debate where he was aloof and arrogant and disconnected and really disengaged with what is very important to the American voter.

That was the representation of Obama in his own debate last week. So I believe that Joe Biden was sent in to try to compensate for that, but really tough format, Sean, for someone like Paul Ryan or anyone else up against Joe Biden when the moderator allowed one candidate to absolutely run rough shot over the conversation over the opponent.

That’s a tough format. It reminded me I just told Neil Cavuto of watching a Muscat run across the tundra with somebody underfoot and in this case when it came to style it was Paul Ryan underfoot because of the moderator allowing Biden to do the interrupting, to kind of take control of the conversation.

HANNITY: I would say that maybe there is a lesson to be learned here is that if Martha ever gets married again that probably Paul Ryan should go to her wedding, which I thought was wrong in the first place. Because there’s obviously a conflict of interest.

And it was interesting that every time she seemed to interrupt was well, to bail out Joe Biden and shut down Paul Ryan. But I don’t think it impacted the debate. Some things might have gone unnoticed, governor that I want to get your thoughts on.

When Joe Biden talked about they’re down on America. They bet against America. Holding hostage was another term that he used. Now this is a — he’s working for a president lecturing the country on civility. I wanted to get your take on those particular terms that he used tonight meaning the vice president.

PALIN: You know that inciting-type rhetoric that did not go over well. I believe with those who are rational American voters just wanting to deal with facts and what the true state of the union is and we know the state of the union is not very good right now because of the failed policies of Obama and Biden.

I think what you’re going to see tonight is along with that inciting rhetoric of Joe Biden’s what you’re going to see as a result of that is the mainstream media tomorrow morning will probably want to give a quote/unquote “win” to Joe Biden based on style.

Because Joe Biden came across as passionate having used rhetoric like you just mentioned. Unfortunately, Joe Biden is quite passionate about all of the wrong things. He’s passionate about growing government assuming government is the answer.

Whereas Paul Ryan, more subdued perhaps, I believe more pulled together. But what Paul Ryan was trying to explain is that Republican platform is built on this notion of empowering the individual, middle class.

Just the average everyday American who isn’t looking for government to come in and take more and more of what the fruits of our labor is then redistribute it according to some far away, faceless, politician priorities.

HANNITY: Well, you know, but there are certain lines that I thought were very, very interesting, actually got some audience reaction tonight. And you know we’ve got to build our cars in Finland? You know, have our windmills built in China?

The $90 billion that were wasted on so called green energy jobs? Where are the five million jobs that they had promised? Unemployment rate in Scranton, Pennsylvania went up significantly 8.5 percent to 10 percent.

You know, it’s very interesting. The piggy bank ObamaCare line. Hand in cookie jar. Then, of course he laid out the facts America’s not better off than it was four years ago.

Fewer Americans working, $6 trillion in debt and that he’s offering a very different vision and very serious, very methodical, very intelligent way to the American people. What does the country want?

PALIN: Right, what you’re suggesting there is the substance of the arguments made tonight. How important the substance was, not so much the style. I honestly think at this stage of the race, people are not so obsessed with who’s going to come across more intelligent or more passionate based on words, terminology used, but what is the substance?

What is behind their beliefs, their policies? What is their own record? What I was hoping is that Paul Ryan would have the opportunity to bring up Joe Biden’s energy record and how he’s been so opposed to domestic drilling of our resources and development here on and within our own shores.

You know, it was Joe Biden who 30 some years ago actually voted against the TransAlaska Oil Pipeline, which has dumped 18 billion barrels of good, clean energy into American markets.

Yet, Joe Biden opposed it back then and opposes capping our own resources today. That is why you can see the cost of energy so sky high affecting every good, every service in America.

HANNITY: Well, all I can say is I can’t wait to get back to our studio tomorrow night and montage Joe Biden and his facial expressions all throughout the debate.

I think that’ll be a big story by the time we get back. There is was instant poll I saw that had Ryan ahead. Every focus group I’m hearing from did not like the tone, the condescension, the arrogance, and the interruption of the vice president.

So we’re going to watch very closely. Governor Palin, great to see you as always. Thank you so much for being with us.

PALIN: Thank you, Sean. Let me remind you one thing too though. The truth told can’t be all lies when can invent. When Joe Biden told some truths about debt panels, but he told it out of context with an intention to skew what the true meaning and the truth behind the policy issues are. That’s as bad as actually telling a lie so just keep that in mind when you talk about the verbiage that Joe Biden chose to use tonight.

Gov. Palin: Romney needs to be “severely aggressive in his articulation” of Obama’s weaknesses

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 11, 2012

Governor Palin on The O’Reilly Factor tonight:

Video retrieved from 

UPDATE:

From the transcript of the segment:

O’REILLY: Very provocative. And joining us now from Alaska the former Governor of that state and current Fox News analyst, Sarah Palin. So do you agree with Miss Laura?

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS ANANLYST: Oh absolutely. I couldn’t have said it better myself. She’s articulating what so many, just common sense, fiscally-conservative, independent Americans are thinking is “Come on Republicans.”

If you can’t get the fire lit underneath this base and get them convinced that Barack Obama’s lack of a plan to get us out of these economically woeful times, if you can’t get your message through that filter of the media, then we’re in a world of hurt.

O’REILLY: Ok. What is the Republican Party not doing based upon the convention and they — and the race so far that they should be doing?

PALIN: We’re not explaining to the rest of America who thinks that they’re going to get a bunch of free stuff from Obama that you have a choice. You either get free stuff or you get freedom. You cannot have both and you need to make a choice.

And if we could explain and get that message through to people that there is no such thing as a free lunch and that we are an insolvent nation when you consider us being $16 trillion in debt, we’re broke. We can’t keep continuing down this path.

Well, again, we’re in a world of hurt if we can’t get that explanation to the public, to the voters regarding what the choices are and —

O’REILLY: Is it — is it possible, though, that the country has changed with 50 percent of American homes receiving some kind of welfare means tested? Not — we’re not talking Medicare, Social Security. Half, all right, of the population now somewhat dependent on the federal and state governments.

Is it possible that the message is, I want the stuff, I’ll sacrifice freedom? Is that possible?

PALIN: Well, it’s possible that we are so far down that road, Bill, yes, that the majority of Americans could potentially —

O’REILLY: Ok so it is possible that — no matter how vehemently the message is said, ok because I don’t know if that’s to you or not. But I know the demographics are changing and I know the Obama administration is basically targeting Hispanic Americans, women, African-Americans and labor union people to try to get the coalition of the willing to win the election so that the population is changing.

The second thing is, should Mitt Romney go after Barack Obama more — in a more personal way? Should he use words like incompetent, dangerous, socialist, those kinds of buzz words that would get an enormous amount of attention? That would lock people in, should he do that?

PALIN: Well and they’re not just buzz words, those are accurate descriptions of our commander-in-chief.

O’REILLY: So you’re saying yes, he should do that?

PALIN: Yes, he should be very aggressive and he should be adamant in his attacks on Obama’s record, which is so dismal, his plan or lack of a plan of Obama’s to get us out of these woeful times. Yes, he needs to be severely aggressive in his — in his articulation.

But listen, you know, you bring up those demographics and what — what they’re representing in terms of perhaps wanting some free stuff. You need to remember, America is still center right.

Proof of that is look at how Obama has to couch his message. He has to lie to pretend that he is for fiscal sanity and strong national defense and those center right positions that the vast majority of Americans stand for. Obama has to pretend like he is that in order to get that base.

[…]

PALIN: They do have to bring it directly to Obama personally, a reflection of what he stands for and his record proves what he stands for. He is for growing this big disconnected, dysfunctional debt-ridden government and disempowering the individual. That’s what Obama and the left stands for. So no he haven’t —

O’REILLY: But you got to use those buzz words. You got to say socialist, you got to do that to get people’s attention.

PALIN: You — and what they have to do is they have to lay out the choice for the American public. They have to tell us, are you for empowering the individual or are you for this nonsense of Barack Obama’s of growing this dysfunctional debt-ridden, $16 trillion in debt, this government, which one do you want, people?

“Bull” O’Reilly Discusses Governor Palin on ‘Leno’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 23, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Tuesday night, Bill O’Reilly was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. They discussed politics, among other things. O’Reilly did what he usually does: offer his perspective based on…his perspective. So not much was new there, but when Leno asked O’Reilly a question about Governor Palin, my ears perked up. How would he respond? Remember, the Governor has made a few appearances on The Factor, which came to a halt after the time she basically told him to stop interrupting her and let her answer a question. Those who are familiar with O’Reilly know he usually does most of the talking while his guests try to figure out why he invited them on if he wasn’t going to allow them to speak. Until Governor Palin indicated he needed to stop yapping, I had never heard anyone take a firm stand on Bill’s habitual interruptions. That was Governor Palin’s last appearance on his show, until recently. Perhaps it was sheer coincidence. Who knows? What we do know, though, is that after that day, he whined and complained for some time about that appearance and was less then complimentary when speaking about her–more so than usual.

Bill O’Reilly’s response Tuesday night can simply be described as dismissive and condescending. I know you’re thinking, “And this is surprising how?” It’s not, but it does afford an opportunity to once again point out some things.

Here’s part of the exchange:

Leno: Is Sarah Palin pretty much been eclipsed from all of this? Is she not a voice in any of this anymore?

O’Reilly: She has her niche audience, but the Governor is happy where she is on Fox News Channel making a fortune and shooting moose or whatever she shoots. [He laughs.]

First, did Bill actually hear Jay’s question because he certainly didn’t answer it? Leno asked if Governor Palin has a voice of influence in this political process. (It was not until after Bill responded that question that Leno asked about whether someone might “bring her in.”) Bill’s answer is that she is making a fortune and shooting moose. Really? Why didn’t he answer the question Leno asked? Was he too eager to promote his own narrative? Also, one thing has nothing to do with the other, does it? One can be influential and work for Fox News at the same time, can’t she? Isn’t that what they expect from their analysts? I have a hard time imagining that if the same question had been asked about Charles Krauthammer, for example, O’Reilly would have responded in similar fashion.

Second, enough of this making a fortune thing. If people think that Governor Palin would sell out for money, they’ve missed it. They’ve missed her character and her history. Remember, she walked away from a good-paying job to expose corruption in Alaska. As she says, “In politics, you’re either eating well or sleeping well.” She’s not for sale. She doesn’t suffer from a lust for money, and making money has nothing to do with her ability to impact the national scene.

Bill O’Reilly somehow relegates Governor Palin to the position of hunter-gatherer, thereby disqualifying her from being able to make a difference. We know Governor Palin is a hunting enthusiast, and we certainly have no problem with that. However, his condescending suggestion that she’s too busy loving hunting to have any real power is laughable. It continues to baffle me how people respond to and treat a former vice presidential nominee who offered herself up to serve her country. That’s his answer about the influence of the first woman on a Republican ticket in a presidential/vice presidential campaign? Bill, you can do better, can’t you?

His eagerness to dismiss the Governor also does not jive with the facts, and the facts illustrate that our presidential candidates seek Governor Palin’s endorsement, that she can’t go anywhere without someone poking a microphone in her face, that she’s asked who people should vote for in primary and caucus states, that she’s been questioned about a brokered convention, that she’s been asked repeatedly to reconsider her October 5th decision, that Newt Gingrich is on record as wanting her to be a part of a Gingrich administration, that she brought down the house at CPAC, that she went to New York and did a plethora of interviews with people who wanted her take on this primary season, that phrases she’s coined, like “fundamental restoration of America,” routinely come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth–who’s the purported heir to President Obama’s throne, and that causes like exposing crony capitalism all of a sudden became a topic of discussion in debates after she brought it front and center in current political discourse. Who’s lacking a voice?

Furthermore, how many can boast of the intensity of support she has–loyal supporters who would go through hell and high water for her if she just said the word? Which brings me to my next point: this “niche” that O’Reilly refers to when asked about her influence…perhaps we should take a look at something: O’Reilly, who constantly reminds us of how wonderful he is and how many people tune in to watch The Factor, has a little over 511,000 Facebook friends. The washed up, money-grubbing, moose hunter from Alaska has almost 3.3 million. You do the math, Bill–and cut the bull.

Governor Palin Tells O’Reilly to Stop Interrupting, Then Discusses Entitlement Reform

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 5, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

On Bill O’Reilly last night, Governor Palin discussed cutting budgets and reforming entitlements. That is, after she told him to stop interrupting her so she could finish a thought! I’m not sure anyone has ever told Bill to shut up (kindly) before, but it was long overdue. Way to go, Gov!

Gov. Palin Breaks Down Pres. Obama’s Oval Office Speech

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 15, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin was totally fired up tonight in her response to President Obama’s Oval Office speech. As Bill O’Reilly points out in the interview, there is no governor in these United States who has the energy expertise that she has; therefore, hearing from her on this oil spill is simply an exercise in wisdom and common sense.

Huffington Post Blows More Smoke (Update: Video – Bill O’Reilly Calls Huff Po Pinheads)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 25, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

The Huffington Post is once again more than willing to make Governor Palin look bad–even if that means they have to spin things to get that job done.

On “Good Morning America” today, in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, George Stephanopoulos brought up Governor Jeb Bush’s comments about Governor Palin’s readiness for a 2012 presidential run. Bush, whose own name has been thrown around as a potential candidate, said a few days ago:

“My personal belief is that for Governor Palin to be a successful candidate for higher office, she needs to take this charisma she has and also add to it some depth of understanding of the complexity of life that we’re living in today. If she had the combination of that, she would be a formidable candidate.”

Complexity of life? What does that mean? Has she not been leading discussions on health care, the economy, national security, energy independence? What simplistic issues does he think the governor has been dealing with lately: cookie baking? basket weaving?

Jeb Bush went on to say he doesn’t know what Governor Palin’s deal is. Well, where has he been then? Her deal is the same deal millions of Americans share. Her deal is what the Tea Party movement has been meeting about, hard-working Americans are concerned about, and a plethora of organizations are scrapping to schedule her to come and talk about. What’s not to get? What part of common sense conservatism is causing Jeb Bush trouble? What’s his deal?

Now, the Huff Po is consistent, if nothing else. One can always count on them to advance their purposes by any means necessary, so today they half-reported O’Reilly’s response to Stephanopoulos’s question about Bush’s statement.

They wrote:

As for frequent “O’Reilly Factor” guest Sarah Palin, O’Reilly says she absolutely wants to run but has to weigh whether she wants to put her family through the process. And, he added, she needs to study up.

“Sarah Palin needs to go to college,” O’Reilly said. “Political college, world affairs college, and she is. She’s hired a bunch of advisers and they’re giving her a whole bunch of tracks to learn, because it is a sophisticated deal.”

O’Reilly, who has interviewed Governor Palin on a few occasions and has spoken well of her afterwards–he who doesn’t ask softball questions, as he’s wont to boast–should have done a better job dealing with Governor Bush’s baseless comment. For reasons I cannot fathom, he didn’t speak up about the substantive issues he and she have engaged in, didn’t call Bush out for his comment–void of anything resembling fact–and didn’t ask, “Pinhead?”

Nonetheless, there was more to the answer he gave than the Huff Po would have you know.

NewsBusters reported what the Huff Po conveniently left out.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Is she ready?

O’REILLY But, Bush is right, the Governor’s right in the sense that Sarah Palin needs to go to college, political college, world affairs college. And she is. She’s hired a bunch of advisers. And they’re giving her a whole bunch of tracts to learn. Because, it is a sophisticated deal. But, give me a break. Nancy Pelosi’s a genius? She’s the Speaker of the House. She’s afraid to come on my program, Stephanopoulos. If she were sitting where you are sitting, she’d be shaking. She can’t answer the questions.

STEPHANOPOULOS: I don’t know about that.

O’REILLY: She can’t answer the questions. All right? So, yeah, Sarah Palin needs a little bit more seasoning. But, don’t tell me Harry Reid and Boehner and Pelosi are geniuses. They’re not. The country’s in a mess. If they were geniuses, we’d be better off.

As I said, O’Reilly did not go into detail regarding the governor’s grasp of issues as he has done in the past, perhaps because he wanted to go in a different direction, to make a separate point, which he did. O’Reilly’s point was if one wants to talk about someone who’s lacking understanding, they need not look any further than the Speaker of the House. It is she, he asserts, who can’t answer the questions, so much so that she wouldn’t dare take the challenge of being interviewed on “The Factor.”

Governor Palin, on the contrary, has no problems sitting down with him and answering whatever question he throws her way because she does know the issues. And while there will be those in the “Vicious press,” as O’Reilly called them, who will read into his comment that the governor needs more “seasoning,” his point was this: they all need a little more, including Reid and Boehner. But Speaker Pelosi needs a lot more than seasoning, and Governor Palin could definitely take her to school.
