Sarah Palin Rips Obama on the Economy: “Told Ya So”


Sarah Palin hits Fox News tonight in an inteview with Sean Hannity.
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 – 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’

Palin continues:

“America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government large-esque. 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.

HANNITY: Socialism?

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 roads… 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 people’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.

  1. There is no Palin hate machine. She’s just wrong. I don’t hate her, she’s just incorrect about her projections. Everytime someone screams socialism (to the liberals) or fascists (to the conservatives) I know that they are idiots. I know that, despite some leanings towards fascism, conservatives are not fascist. I know that, even though some liberal policies lean towards socialism, it’s not socialism. The interview is nothing more than two ideologues agreeing with each other, and they sound misinformed or willfully ignorant of the real world.

  2. @6

    How about a loss of national sovereignty?

    More realistic than socialism because this is happening as Obama fiddles.

  3. Well, it’s about bloody time my fellow conservatives noticed we are in debt up to our eyeballs! My gods, where were you lot over the past 8 years? Bill Clinton left us with a surplus that W. squandered. Bill Clinton, for chrissake! NOW that a dem is back in office everyone starts to notice we’re pushing a deficit? Good gods! there’s a recession on. If only Sarah Palin stayed awake through the entire college class she talks about she’d have head about Kensyean (sic, I’m sure) economics and what a country needs to do to get out of a recession…and also would have picked up on reducing deficits when times are fat.

    Idiots. Our party deserves a few years in the woods if this is what we’re putting forward. I can’t freaking belive the party of Regan has come to this.
