This is bound to be the reddest of red meat. Sean Hannity interviews Sarah Palin tonight where she calls out both the Obama Administration for its continued massive spending and Obama’s voters for not listening to the McCain/Palin camp when they said Obama’s plans would actually make the economy worse, not better. Drudge has the details:
HANNITY: What do you make of – look at the state of the economy now…
PALIN: Well, when you consider that the federal government is about eleven trillion dollars in debt, and we’re borrowing more to spend more.. it defies any sensible economic policy that any of us ever learned through college. It defies economy practices and principles that tell ya ‘you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial hole’
“America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government largesse. We’re borrowing. We’re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own sixty percent of GENERAL MOTORS – or the U.S. government does… But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? It’s China. So that leads you to have to ask who is really going to own our car industry than in America.”
HANNITY: You know but it goes back – It does go back a little to the campaign. I mean, ‘spread the wealth, patriotic duty…’
PALIN: Kind of a ‘we told ya so’.
HANNITY: Well, is that how you feel?
PALIN: That’s how I feel! I feel like… and I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok… Maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America.
And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead Sean it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.
This should be really good. Lately Palin has been hitting the Obama Administration for its irresponsible borrowing, spending, and nationalizing. If you haven’t seen her speech in Auburn, New York, I recommend it highly. Flopping Aces has it in its entirety. Tonight sounds like she’s going to hit a bit harder and not just at Obama’s policies, but at the American voters who were too transfixed by Hopenchange to see that what Obama was proposing would harm America, even though John McCain and Sarah Palin were shouting it from the rooftops. It will be something to watch. I’ll be in my car, so I’ll have to be satisfied with listening on my XM.
