As President Obama vows to spend the ‘stimulus’ faster, Governor Palin tells host Sean Hannity: ‘You gotta quit digging that hole!’
HANNITY: What do you make of â€“ 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 weâ€™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 â€˜you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial holeâ€™
“America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government large-esque. Weâ€™re borrowing. Weâ€™re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own sixty percent of general motors â€“ or the U.S. government doesâ€¦ But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? Itâ€™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, â€˜spread the wealth, patriotic dutyâ€¦â€™
PALIN: Kind of a â€˜we told ya soâ€™.
HANNITY: Well, is that how you feel?
PALIN: Thatâ€™s how I feel! I feel likeâ€¦ 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 okâ€¦ Maybe we didnâ€™t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of â€˜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 donâ€™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. Itâ€™s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans arenâ€™t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.
PALIN: Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roadsâ€¦ nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American peopleâ€™s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.
The interview airs tonight at 6 PM Pacific time as Obama scrambles today on the economy.
Wonder what the Palin-hate machine responds with this time.
