**UPDATE: Interview with BillO added**

Palin says that Christie is forced to cut budgets because NJ is broke. But she points out that when she became Governor of Alaska, she cut even though she had a surplus:

And with all due respect to Governor Christie, you know he has no choice but to cut budgets because he’s broke, his state is broke. What courage really is, is in the face of having a surplus when you have opportunity to spend spend spend other people’s money, you still choose to reign in government to let the private sector soar. That’s real courage, and by the way that’s what I did as Governor here when I engaged in hiring freezes and reduced earmarks by 86% and vetoed the largest amounts in our state’s history. Despite having a surplus that’s real leadership and that’s courage.

But I do appreciate that Governor Christie is willing to face the reality in his state and that is that they are going bankrupt. So he has to cut, he has no choice.

Oh man I feel like the election campaigns have already started! That was awesome!

Full interview below (the quote comes early in the first video):

UPDATE: She was on with BillO tonight as well, where she talks about cutting entitlements. She also lightly smacks him down for interrupting her and not letting her finish a thought.

    Sarah spoke the truth right there. The elites and pseudo intellectuals in the GOP don’t like it when she does that.

    • Mike

      Ditto. Christie is not a conservative; his primary nemesis is, Mayor Steve Lonegan. Christie looks like he’s a conservative but that is when you apply the blue-state filter over a GOP’er. Same with Whitman. Same with Kean.

      Christie’s biggest failure is not tackling a bane on the pension system in NJ: the crony pensioners (see Susan Bass Levin, et al). They are drawing generous pensions from taking plum appointment positions at huge salary levels for a few years. Then, they are able to get high-dollar retirement pensions that were established for persons who worked in the public sector.

      He was a great US attorney cast in the mold of Rudy Giuliani. Now, he looks more like a schoolyard bully he claims he is out to get.

      And the average person winces with empathetic embarrassment when any politician, by the way, predictably toots their horn in self aggrandizement. I liked Palin as the spunky governor, but if I recall correctly, she turned out to be a quitter. I hope she’s not the best candidate America can come up with as an alternative to four more years of liberal destruction of the republic.

    Torn between Palin and Cain, Cain seems to be running for sure, but Palin is always hinting without really saying. Good options are better than bad ones though, I don’t want another McCain.

    As tough as Christie is, I’ll always put my money on Palin over him, she might not be a charging bull like him, but she has positive values and policies on her side; she always speaks with truth and wisdom, she always knows the right thing to say, and despite what she’s had to endure, she always keeps her cool. Say what you want about her, but I love her to death.

              Mkw, she’d be a fool to give ANY detailed plans right now. What was the details of “hope and change?” It does not matter! Any details this early in the game, and the press would feed on it like sharks on chum. Fore example..watch the press in the coming weeks when the house finally releases their plans for entitlement reforms.

              • Mkw2005

                Giving a plan to cut the debt would be to early in the game? LOL You are just defending the unknown. Like we have to vote for her to find out. LOL I mean really she has to get threw the GOP before she can even get to Obama. She has about a year left before the primaries. I and in about a year she won’t have enough votes to get to the big show.

              I think her plan for cutting the debt is this:

                It is a bigger job than she is qualified for. Period. Now if she wrote a book on how she would do it. Then maybe she could have a shot. But her but is pure jingoist swill.

                  Who’s braindead? Palin is infinitely more qualified than Obama. Maybe you missed that too. You undoubtedly miss many things like many liberals. The truth and basic wisdom for starters. Nothing is quite so foolish or misguided as a liberal. They are, as a “collective” group, glimmering jewels of ignorance. Methinks you a carat and a half of pure, uncut ignorance yourself.

                • Mkw2005

                  So because I don’t think Palin isn’t qualified. I am a liberal. Most of the neo-con establishment doesn’t think she is qualified to run a real state. You know one that doesn’t get paid in oil money.
                  The only one here that looks ignorant is the one that can’t even explain what he defends. So again how does she plan on cutting the debt?
                  This has been a talking point for 4 years retard. You know amongst real conservatives. You know not the sleepy head pseudo-cons that woke up last year.

      The guy who he appointed to the Superior Court was the Hamas terrorist’s lawyer. He’s also represented terrorists at Gitmo.

      Oh, and Christie’s new Judge? He wants Sharia Law to be the law of the land.

      Christie is a liberal democrat pretending to be a “republican” He is nothing more than a flake and a media whore.

        It truly amazes me that Chris Christie is now being examined more closely; last year we had posters, on this website, that were tripping all over themselves fawning for this UNKNOWN from a very liberal state. The highly-publicized Second Amendment debacle of a NJ native, moved to Colorado where he LEGALLY purchased some handguns, moved back home. His mother called the cops, hung-up, and the NJ gun-grabbing cops showed up anyway. This law-abiding individual is arrested, tried, convicted to 7 YEAR sentence, and sent off to jail. Christie’s phone blew-up from conservatives across this country. Finally, Christie saw the light; the guy’s ridiculous sentence was commuted.. My question is this: Without the public outcry, does anyone really believe that this former federal prosecutor would have lifted a finger ? Food for thought…

        • Anonymous

          How is that a debacle? NJ has different gun laws from Colorado. He bought it legally in CO, but that doesn’t make it legal in NJ.

          • Anonymous

            Since you know NOTHING about this case, you decided to chime-in anyway. OK, I’ll play along troll. This case revolved around cops looking to CONFISCATE GUNS: they were not dispatched for firearms violations; simply because this guys NJ mom called 911, hung up, and 911 dispatcher sent a police unit to the mom’s address. Cops get there and the fun-n-games began; open your trunk, oops, what’s that a locked & unloaded gun, sorry pal, gotta put these nice silver bracelets on ya. New Jersey is a sh*thole bastion of British Tories that grew-up to be liberals; Chris Christie is their version of conservatism. I tip my hat to Christie’s commuting this guy’s 7 YEAR sentence; he still had to spend a ton of dough on lawyers and was incarcerated by a NJ legal system that reeks of totalitarianism and police-state tactics.

    I’m trying to figure out, as looking at FY2008 Authorized and FY2009 Governor’s proposal, that the spending increased between both years, but revenue decreased.
    FY2008 revenue – $11.134 billion FY2009 revenue- $10.201 billion.
    FY2008 authorization to spend (minus permanent fund) – $7.985 billion.
    FY2009 governor’s proposal to spend (minus permanent fund) – $8.345 billion.

    If I may ask, how did she cut? The spending went up, from my observation.

      It’s obvious that Christie is getting real old real fast… at least with real Conservatives. How much you wanna bet that the establishment GOP will look to him to revive their chances and save their sagging butts against the Tea Party. They will push real hard for him to throw his hat in the ring for POTUS.

      I wonder how long it will take Ann Coulter to give her head a shake and come to her senses. For someone as bright as she is, she somehow fails to see that the game is not played according to establishment rules anymore. Her meme… “don’t dare vote for another McCain” Who the heck does she think Christie is?

        If they supported substance, it would mean they would have to actually WORK and make CHANGES which means they would lose their power and positions in DC. They will get called on their schit.

That is why I love the power of the Tea Party, status quo has got to go and they are making it happen.

    Yeah … but the problem with Republicans going at one another during the primaries (or comparable) is that they build up so much animosity towards one another, they don’t get unified and support whomever comes out on top. That, IMO, is yet another reason we fall apart during election cycles. We(they) need to find a way to get past this so we can have a unified front going into the election andnot give anyone any reeason to doubt that we are united.

Simple… Christie should STFU and not make snide remarks about her.

        I’m not saying I agree with what he said or her reaction. I totally admire Palin and usually almost everything she says and does. I’m talking big picture here and responding particularly to RS saying it sounded like the elections already. Everyone is going to take potshots dudring an election cycle, but my big point is that once the dust settles, we e with the (R) at the end of our names, need to stand UNITED and put the petty BS behind us.

  • Wowiwasowned

    Newt just said on Hannity what he would do is what Sarah did to balance her budget, he would freeze hiring and in time you have a 10% turn over or ppl leave their job which saves a lot. Obviously she did more and it’s really common sense if you shrink government and lower taxes and regulations so the private sector/employers can relax and feel safe about their investments and sell their goods they make more money which more ppl feel the same way and they take chances and start business’s which inturn the gov collects more tax money and everyone benefit. People get off welfare because they can have a job instead. The ill will be taken care of but we all will have more choices to take care of everyone. If they open up state lines to sell health ins there would be so many different companies to choose from we all could afford insurance. And I would call on church’s and more private sector solutions to take care of people in need. But when you have a constant changing government that spends and controls more and more of our choices it makes it harder to do it and I think they want us to depend on them which makes it all harder to change, it becomes the mess we have now. The main problem by being so controling and wanting more ppl depending on this system is it’s too expensive and it doesn’t work, socialism does not work. Socialism leads to corruption and greed, these polititians have to lie to keep it going and aren’t we all sick of it? It’s like being abused over and over, example number one public unions, look how these people are acting to keep the status quo, disgusting. I hope Sarah runs because I would vote for her for sure, she’s been vetted over and over again in the last 3 yrs, has Newt or anyone else that is toying with running? No, could they survive what she’s been through? I don’t think so, she is one strong woman and she loves this country and she loves us too :) grrrrr!!!!

        I actually want to thank you for bringing that up. I never knew anything about it, but I went looking for some info on it.
        Although I only read one article on it, a recent one discussing if and how to change the package, it is just nice to learn a bit more about Alaskan politics.
        Though, I do notice a common trend, the Alaskan Democrats don’t want much, if any, change. Their love of high taxes and other people’s money is an addiction found everywhere.

    Something’s rotten about Christie. It’s going to come out in time. Think I’m crazy? Well answer this…

    Christie has been in office for over a year. He is a media darling despite attacking sacred cows of the left.

    Scott Walker, he’s been in office since, what January? And in 1 month has had more bad press than Christie in one year combined.

    Have you ever noticed how often Christie is on MSNBC?

    Good luck restoring some fiscal sanity in NJ Gov. Christie, I support you on that. But i’ve got a feeling your a huge RINO on just about everything else. There is a reason why the establishment left has been easy on you. I’ve noticed.

    Something’s rotten about Christie. It’s going to come out in time. Think I’m crazy? Well answer this…

    Christie has been in office for over a year. He is a media darling despite attacking sacred cows of the left.

    Scott Walker, he’s been in office since, what January? And in 1 month has had more bad press than Christie in one year combined.

    Have you ever noticed how often Christie is on MSNBC?

    Good luck restoring some fiscal sanity in NJ Gov. Christie, I support you on that. But i’ve got a feeling your a huge RINO on just about everything else. There is a reason why the establishment left has been easy on you. I’ve noticed.

    I liked the interview with Bill O’Reilly. She pretty much laid the foundational truths that we need to tap in our OWN energy sources and grow the market to come out of the entitlement mentality. She has a point: raise the private sector in resources and bring down government in terms of entitlement benefits. However, Bill O was stuck right there with government, he just kept on bringing the question about raising retirement age. Though, there are cuts and sacrifices that we need to do, I agree with Sarah that we need to stop buying foreign oil, tapping in our resources will keep our dollars flowing in the country and in the short run we will get rid of our debts.

    The 2012 elections are a no brainer. Seriously. As long as conservatives keep their eye on the ball – Anyone but Obama.

    Go to the polls during the primary and vote for whomever you like. The GOP winner gets my vote. I prefer Palin, but I will vote for whomever wins the ticket.

    The point of 2012 is taking America away from the Socialist in Chief. Period. If we’re fortunate enough to elect President Palin, good for us, but do not pitch a fit if your favorite does not win the primary. Sitting home is not an option this time. There’s too much at stake.

        Gotta love when he puts his smug nose in the air and takes a breath before asking something-

        He’s [O’reilly] a douche-bag; and although Palin isn’t on my A-list for 2012, I love the way she handled it. She’s much better at interpersonal stuff than she is policy wise. It perfectly explains why she can’t sell her policy knowledge during big interviews, but was still able to hand Biden his arse (even with her limitations during the last election) during the VP debates.

        • Conrad

          It is time for BillO the rhinO to go. Laura Ingraham could fill his shoes nicely. Palin learns quickly. After her stumble with Couric, she has been eating the media up with authentic honesty. Christie seems like a typical politician who will say anything, with no intension of ever following up.

  • Max Friedman

    Let Christie do his thing, and hopefully do it well. New Jersey needs help and he has the right attitude and guts to do it.

    Palin also did well but from a different situation. If both of them succeed, then the people win.

    Christie is not the conservative so many people think he is.

    # His budget passed only after three conservative Republicans were bullied into voting for it and the savings achieved in the budget were done at the expense of new taxes, new fees, federal Stimulus funds and accounting gimmicks; the 2% property tax cap will actually cause taxes to skyrocket;
    he has yet to propose the “across the board” tax cuts he promised as a candidate; the budget actually INCREASES state expenditures by 6% and the number of staff in the Governor’s office making $100,000 per year increases by ten;

    # His confrontation with the unions is pure Kabuki theater with nothing accomplished but acrimony; he has yet to lay off a single state employee and his proposed 2011 state worker reduction plan is little more than window dressing;

    # He has populated his cabinet with notorious liberals while firing the only true conservative – after slandering him;

    # He has endorsed notorious RINO candidates in the 2010 mid-term election while avoiding (with one notable exception) contact with conservative candidates;

    # He supports a multi-state Cap & Trade scheme known as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and is so committed to Cap & Trade that he used funds raised from RGGI’s carbon auctions to help balance the budget; he has directed that state funds be appropriated to subsidize “green” technology ventures such as off-shore windmills;

    # He has refused to join other state attorneys-general in a joint lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare while accepting federal funds for the implementation of a similar program on a statewide level;

    # He is on record saying that he does not believe illegal aliens are here illegally; he has indicated that he supports amnesty for illegals; he generally favors strict gun control and he supports construction of the Ground Zero Mo

        AND IF she runs against barry in 2012,…

        (44 or 48 state, LANDSLIDE. Barry will MAYBE get
        IL & MI plus possibly MA, Hawaii, NY, & CA)

        So they MUST do EVERYTHING possible to DESTROY her
        
AND her supporters BEFORE this becomes too apparent.

        Unfortunately for them, it seems the cats out of the bag,…

        and it IS too late.

    The David Asman interview had some very useful information in it. Even though he kept pushing her, Palin refused to express support for Christie and istead said that tea party types are her inspiration. The only tea party contender is Cain (as far as I know). Pawlenty is trying to embrace tea party but I don’t think he’s catching on. I expect she’ll wait to see if Cain can get any traction before announcing. I believe she wants to make sure that tea party is represented in the primary, and she’ll do it if no one else has a shot.

    I saw this at Hot Air first and Allah complained that she didn’t answer the first question but went right into prepared remarks bashing Christie. Heh. Oh, she answered the first question. He asked her if she was inspired by anyone else in the race and she answered it. “Yeah, ME!” Too funny.

    Loved her fake out with Bill. Whatever set up she has there in Alaska, they seem to have solved the delay problem quite awhile ago. That was a very diplomatic way to get him to stop interrupting her. Of course it’s debatable whether he fell for it. He’s so dense he probably did fall for it. We’ll find out if they suspend her contract in the next couple of weeks. Gingrich and Santorum rarely went on The Factor. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Santorum on it. They both appear on Hannity and Greta much more often. I won’t be surprised if they do suspend her contract after both those interviews. She’s definitely campaigning. Whether she runs or not is another story, but she’s in campaign mode.

      P.P.s… I suspect there are some evil geniuses at FOX who are gaming the rules there. They’ll keep Palin in their system until the very last minute … enough to help her to get her message out. Then the evil geniuses can rest content that their job is done before they pull the plug on the eve of her running.

      Regarding Newt and Santorum… Newt is past his due date… I’m unsure if its equivocation… he says the right things at times but reeks of establishment. Something about Santorum is missing. He’s been out of the loop for too long… can’t put my finger on it… but then again, it is only the last three years I’ve been obsessing about you fine people south of the 49th… I’ve still got a steep learning curve.

        Yeah, from your other comment: I really can’t tell sometimes just how stupid Bill O’Reilly is. He’s a brand of idiot all his own that seems to be totally ego based. He is soooo frigging dumb that it just boggles my mind sometimes what actually does sink in.

        As for Newt? I’m actually starting to lean towards him if Palin doesn’t run. I don’t think anyone else is strong enough. He’s right on Islam. He’d destroy Obama in a fair debate (which is unlikely) on any subject. Yeah, he’s Establishment but he’s been tested under fire. Although, he got burned so that’s where I stop. I don’t know. I’m trying to find someone else to support but they all have fatal flaws.

            I like Cain. The more I see him the more I like him. But, unfortunately, he’s got such a stink of Perot on him that I won’t trust him to not run on a third party until he doesn’t do it. Which means there is no way I can support him this cycle. I want to see what he does. If he does pull a Perot and run on a third party, Obama has re-election in the bag. Hopefully he knows that and won’t do it.

            Palin and Cain are very much alike. Cain could do so much for the Republican Party because he’s so passionate and inspirational. One of the reasons I support Palin is because she has NOT used her popularity and fame to try to form a third party. She knows that would never work. So I hope Cain proves himself to be more like her than Ross Perot.

    Bill kept askeing her about “the poor Alaskans on Medicaid..” She didn’t really directly answer the question. I would have said “yes the poor Alaskans on Medicaid will have to ‘adjust’ to the budget problems too!”

    “Before you ask the people who are paying ALL of the taxes to pay more, shouldn’t you ask the people who are paying nothing to pay something?” Andrew Wilkow said that yesterday XM Satellite Radio.

    I would have told Bill that the “poor people” will soon be SOL if we whom are handing them money each month are no longer able to do so. Then what will the “poor” do Bill?

      Mutual Aid Societies will have to make a come back, and the poor will be better off for it if the ridiculous AMA lobbied legislation can be undone.

      That, I personally think, has a good chance of being accepted in response to “what about the poor on medicaid” than a “so be it” response in my opinion. It’s fairer and far more humanitarian than the oligopolized healthcare market we have today.

      The message needs to get out to the more consequentialist portions of the population that less government truly is more humanitarian than the welfare state.

        Thanks for the link. Excellent article. And I agree, a more measured oratorical response about benevolence making a comeback would be more effective than my rant. I am just so freaking tired of the gubment’s compulsory edicts being widely accepted (nay I say strongly defended) by the many pundits in the media. I mean just who are the particular ‘folks’ that Bill is looking out for?

          The “folks” are the hauntingly accurate caricature of the uninformed, uninterested, deluded American masses who uniformly buy into a set of typical Statist assumptions which are so prevalent in this society to one degree or another. Bill isn’t stupid, it’s his shtick to project relatability to the majority of his viewers.

          It’s a mix of people either aware acceptance of or unaware impassive acquiescence of the political gun in the hands of the State when it lays down said edicts.

          • Goldni007

            Yes. So essentially they are a mix of the clueless, the incompetant, the lazy, the ignorant, the slackers and the lackers. All thrown in with the truly helpless and hopeless which indeed do need aid.

            To paraphrase Wilkow once more: “If you pay taxes you have to pay more. If you don’t pay any taxes you are a victim of society. The former’s labor and output is required to benefit the latter. The latter’s zero productivity is not their fault. However, it IS your fault that you are not paying enough. You’ll just have to work harder longer and pay more. Oh and your kids will be required to pay their kids too.”

        Btw Dan..I was thinking about you this week. I have agreed to debate someone about Reagan and the 80’s. One search on Amazon revealed tons of liberal re-writes of history. I was a teen in the 80’s and remember them well. I also remember the misery of the Carter years. Thought you’d be the person to ask of a good FACTUAL book. I need details. Thanks ahead of time.

          As far as books go, off of the top of my head I can only come up with The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America: Since 1945-. It traces the ideological origins and progression of Conservatism and it’s movement starting from Classical Liberalism/Libertarianism in the 1940s with Ludwig Von Mises and F.A. Hayek. The revised edition might have something about Reagan and the 80s
          http://www.amazon.com/Conservative-Intellectual-Movement-America-Since/dp/1933859121

          • Anonymous

            Thanks. I am on the side that believes Reagan was at the right place at the right time and that his policies did indeed bring the US back into prosperity. But, I know he was not perfect. He did raise taxes in the 80’s. Alot of conservatives don’t want to accept that. But rememeber, he did have Tip O’neil to deal with. And the dems controlled both houses of Congress then. Spending is what he had to trade off with them on. Having said that..I think the overall tax burden was still way lower for all of the tax brackets when he left as compared to when he took over for Carter.

              Oh boy, an economics debate, not my strength so I wish you luck. The American Conservative and the Mises Institute have good and bad things written about him. Russel Kirk, a Libertarian-Conservative author of The Conservative Mind wrote about him.

              All I know is
              1. That he applied the Laffer Curve for taxation and revenue.
              2. He grew government spending, much to the chagrin of 100% supply-siders like Jack Kemp.
              3. He refused to do anything during a stock-market crash and it rallied strong and fast because of it.
              4. His administration turned away the empiricist social scientists who came out with evidential rebukes of the Great Society, like Thomas Sowell.
              5. He appointed Alan Greenspan.
              6. He incorrectly got involved in Lebanon but correctly got out of it.
              7. He was a fan of FA Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.
              8. He signed an amnesty and fired the air traffic controllers.
