Video: Gov. Palin Talks Rick Perry and Crony Capitalism with Greta

Monday, September 12, 2011

I just love Governor Palin! One thing I have always respected about her is her fearlessness in calling it like she sees it. Tonight, she spoke with Greta Van Susteren after the Tea Party Republican Presidential Debate. I agree with the Governor that tonight's debate was definitely worth watching. Never one to hold back, she praised Rep. Michele Bachmann for calling out Governor Perry for the Gardasil inoculation of little girls. Bachmann suggested that Perry wasn't motivated by any concern for these children, but by the prospect of lining his own political pockets.

Even prior to Governor Palin's Iowa Tea Party speech, when it was first reported that she would be talking about "crony capitalism," people began to speculate that she was referring to Governor Perry. After the speech, that discussion continued. Tonight, all doubt has been erased. Governor Palin made in abundantly clear that she would not tippy-toe around Rick Perry. They have been called friends, and for that reason, many felt she wouldn't get into the race if he got in, and she wouldn't call him out on his record. Not so.

In her twenty years of public service, she has never kept her mouth shut when she saw corruption; her actions helped give corruption in Alaska a black eye. She didn't keep her mouth shut tonight, either. In no uncertain terms, she articulated that she views Perry as a crony capitalist. (And some people actually said she was going to go to Iowa and endorse Perry!) Politics as usual would have necessitated she not be so bold but instead make nice with the Governor of Texas. Being indebted to the good old boys would have necessitated the same. However, when you have gotten where you are based on hard work, integrity, and incredible instincts, you can speak the truth and not worry about who likes you, who invites you to their country club, or who will eventually back your campaign once theirs fizzles out. The only one you have to look in the eyes is yourself. That's Governor Palin.

I can't wait till she gets in this race.

Here's the interview:

I'm still undecided who I'll be voting for in 2012. Truth be told, there is something likable in each of the candidates, and any one of GOP candidates is by far better than what we have now.

But if Sarah does get in the race, that will be my defining moment. I don't for one minute believe the polls that say Obama wins easily against Palin, because like Palin says,  "Polls are for strippers and skiers." Polls don't mean anything. History tells us when we vote for the conservative candidate we win elections! I personally don't see how we as conservatives, nor we as a country can go wrong with Sarah Palin as our nominee and eventual president.

Before closing, I'm grateful to Greta and Hannity for having Palin as a frequent guest on their programs, allowing the viewers to hear her state her own views and beliefs rather than having to hear some misguided commentator mischaracterize them. I'm also grateful to have found your wonderful blog, Adrienne.

Great interview Gretta. I hope if and when Sarah decides to run that you will be the one to bring it to us. Meanwhile, we'll keep hoping and praying for you to bring us the best news.

I'm curious as to how Obama's gonna have construction workers, school teachers, and kids learning all at the same time. Are they issuing hard hats for the kids too? Maybe the kids can learn to use power tools also. You know... Nail Guns, Extension ladders, it should be interesting!

There is no bigger source of crony capitalism in America today than the prison/industrial complex.

I have an article up at American Thinker The Democrat's 2012 Victory Plan. It is about the upcoming Ken Burns PBS movie on Alcohol Prohibition. It will air on 2 Oct.

The movie is designed to bring up the the subject of Drug Prohibition. You might find my American thinker article of interest because it covers possible Democrat attack points.
