Sarah Palin - 'Told Ya So' Interview Tonight

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Jun 08, 2009 2:12 pm

Sarah Palin hits FOXNEWS tonight for the big 'Told Ya So' interview, we have learned.

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 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.

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 is set to air tonight on FOXNEWS, 9 PM ET.

I have said it once I'll say it again. You can't fix debt by borrowing more money, I know from first hand experience.

I know the Obama campaign promoted cutting down government spending, but I don't recall during the campaign promoting decreasing the government debt. I recall a lot of talk about spending money to stimulate the economy before it hit rock bottom... so while many may have wished we were lowering the debt right now, that's not what Obama said his primary goal was going to be, so why are people expecting him to be doing that right now?

I think it's making news because if some of the upcoming health care bills pass we'll be over twelve trillion dollars in debt... That is enough debt for us to lose our AAA bond rating with foreign countries that are lending us all this money to spend. If our countries bond rating drops the amount we interest have to pay back will greatly increase and we won't be able to get as many people to lend to us. If that happens the fear is that nothing can or could bail us out.

There were to senators who want to give to the tax payers stock in the new GM. This way, the government would not own GM, but the people.

Either way, it is unConstitutional the way the government is screwing the secured creditors. They have contractual rights to the company first, before anyone else including the government and the unions.

That should NEVER happen. There is a reason that is there.

Here is the bill that was introduced to repeal the 22nd amendment

My most immediate concerns are Obamas blatant disregard for the legality of a contract and the governments "bail out" of several companies.

The whole "Bail Out" thing reminds me of problems we've had here in St. Louis (particularly West and North counties) where local municipalities were using Eminent Domain to force both businesses and people out of the community to make room for another shopping center. Manchester in particular is notorious for this when they kicked out a local Saturn dealership so they could put in a Wal-Mart because, by MO state law the taxes on a sold car go to the city or county of residence of the purchaser, not the city or county where the car was purchased in. Manchester wanted money to build a new city hall. So they force out the dealership and put in a strip mall when there was already a Wal-Mart a mile away.

This whole thing about contracts scares the crap out of me as a union man. If the government can violate a contract at it's will, what legal basis does my contract have with my employer? Does this mean my employer can just lay us all off now because contracts aren't legally binding? And no, I'm not in the UAW.

I totally agree with your statement.

Lee Iacocca's book, Where have all the leaders gone. Is a good read.

Wow, what the hell is going on? Change? That's exactly what we're getting. Indefinite leadership? Sure, why not! Legal contracts? Well, we all know that there have always been shady dealings, but maybe not as many and not as public as what's going on now. I'm really starting to get sick of government mucking around with stuff. I'm also mad at what we as citizens put up with. If you speak out you are labeled as a crazy person and dismissed. Okay, I'm not sure where I'm going with this...maybe something about the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor.

Anyway, thanks for linking that one Bubba. And it definitely is scary concerning labor unions, as Skip has already pointed out.
