Sarah Palin on the debate and the Benghazi attack

This is probably the most animated I’ve seen Sarah Palin. She seems to have accepted Romney’s style during the debate last night even though it was clear she, like most, wanted him to go after Libya. But she’s also smart enough to know that the administration has been all over the place on this and with all the lies it’s difficult to keep up with.

But she was very upset with how the MSM has not really tackled Benghazi over the last month. They’ve certainly done reporting on it, but they’ve not elevated it to scandal status by any stretch and Palin was a little worked up about it tonight, understandably so. All in all it’s a great segment.

Watch it below but save yourself some time and skip ahead to the 3 minute mark where the interview starts:

    The Gov at her best!

    • BlueGood

      Dang…I love that Lady…Sarah IMHO, is the most genuine, humble, honest and firey politician in a generation.

      How I want to see “O’bama bin Lyin” crash & burn over this atrocity of lies and cover-up.

      What did the American people do to deserve such a disgusting lying POTUS??

      NOTHING…..You guys and gals deserve much much better…

      • nibblesyble

        I agree! Where are you from? I am from Canada, so although I have not had to put up with the corrupt man-child directly…his policies have affected us here and in fact everybody everywhere…i will relish the day he is booted out!

        • Watcherinla

          I’m Canadian too and pray for the day that we see President Romney in office. Being born and raised in Michigan, I’m sure he crossed the border many times. I look forward to the return of excellent relationships between Washington and Prime Minister Stephen Harper to the benefit of both fine nations.

          • nibblesyble

            nice…welcome my fellow canuck!

  • PVG


    • You mean Obama right? That’s what I mean! All Sara Palin is doing is speaking the truth!

    • Orangeone

      I liked this because I believe you are referring to Barky Boy.

  • Steven

    Nov 6th cannot come soon enough! But I shudder to think what these people are capable of on election day if they are brazen enough to lie about Libya. I pray for this country if these people try to steal this election. I pray very hard for this nation.

    • keyesforpres
      • Me too!

        You can add this too:
        Guilford County (NC) voters say “they voted for the wrong candidate”

        “On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.

        One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote it defaulted to President Obama.

        “I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.”

        Yeah, who wouldn’t be upset of you go to vote to save the nation only to find the machines try to register your vote for the very manchild responsible for the whole mess? The article goes on to assure us that all that needs to be done is the machine needs to be “recalibrated” and it will work properly. Hmmm… Wonder how many machines are rigged? Disgusting development. You can read all about it here:

        • Juan999

          I am tired of the dems cheating election after election; the same thing happened in 2010. It’s long past time that the repubs find out who the guilty people are and have them punished.
          Each of these machines should be tested and working properly before voting by the officials at the polling sites. It would be best to go back to old machines and stop this early voting in order to reduce the dem cheating.
          It’s important to stop the fascist dems from stompimg on our rights.

        • Orangeone

          The same thing happened in 2008. Voter fraud at its best.

          • Romney hopes to WIN an election… NObama hopes to STEAL an election!

            Should be a bumper sticker.

            • kong1967

              You already know what the left is going to claim if Romney wins. We won because of voter suppression.

              • Sadly yes… 🙁 Don’t care though! Romney is our NEW President! They can go and **** themselves! 🙂

                • kong1967

                  A man of few words. Great ones, though.

                • 🙂

    • Orangeone

      Voter fraud in NC with electronic polls changing Romney votes to Obama.

  • idesign2

    I have never seen Sarah Palin so upset, she was breathing fire..:)

  • Patriot077

    It is a crying shame to know that the President of the United States is a pathological liar. It is really disgusting to see him lie so readily. As the days go by it becomes more difficult to even hear his voice.

    November 6 come quickly and please God, protect our beautiful America and all her people from the evilness of this administration.

    • Orangeone

      It comes naturally to him.

  • We’re getting closer…

    As Gov. Palin said, at 6min. 44sec. –
    ‘… what the purpose would be in this coverup…’


    WHY was Ambassador Stevens even in Benghazi meeting with the Turkish representative?

    What did they talk about at dinner?

    A few hours later, Ambassador Stevens was dead?



    It had to do with the weapons that Ambassador Stevens had gone to Benghazi to talk with the Turkish representative about.

    And, was it only weapons that Ambassador Stevens was trying to recover to put back into U.S. hands?


    • Betsey_Ross

      So many questions and no answers. The cover up is amateurish and foolish. How difficult is it to find out WHY?

      • Dittos Betsey_Ross…

        Eventually the popular media will get to the commonsense answer to the ‘why’ question.

        In addition to the administrator of our government NOT wanting to talk about the lack of security and also adducing the 13 min. video about Muhammad as the reason for the murder of the U.S. Ambassador and the other U.S. citizens, maybe Gov. Palin and others will start asking for an answer to the original genesis of the WHY question about WHY!!! the cover up.

        WHY was Ambassador Stevens even IN Benghazi meeting a representative of the Turkish government?


      • colliemum

        I am certain that there is far more to find – and that the amoral, corrupt MSM, as Gov Palin called them, have some working on this out of the limelight.
        I believe there will be lots of even more damaging stuff coming out, but only after Romney has beaten Bathhouse Barry on Nov 6th. Until then, the corrupt, amoral media will keep on aiding and abetting the whole Obama administration, and d*mn the rights of the American people to be told the truth.

    • 3seven77

      “It had to do with the weapons that Ambassador Stevens had gone to Benghazi to talk with the Turkish representative about.”

      Art, you have hit the nail on the head. Lots of weapons going to the wrong people:

      “One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj>”


      • Orangeone

        Fast and Furious the Lybian way.

  • deTocqueville1

    Great post Scoop. This woman is all intellect and all physical determination. We need a whole lot more like her.

  • white531

    Sarah Palin is like the thorn in your side, that won’t go away. No wonder they hate her. No wonder we love her.

  • Dick Parker

    I know others have said this. But, I have a need to repeat it. I hope President Romney can find a place for this beautiful, inner-souled intelligent lady (cabinet, or otherwise), who loves this country as much as anyone can. She is much too aware to leave on the sidelines at Fox News as whatever name they have for those on a level with Colmes, Williams, etc.
    She is a true American political hero with a resume of 3 pages of magnificent accomplishment against the powers that be on both sides of the aisle. That list is too long to post here, but it’s out there and available for any and all interested. I have no doubt many, maybe most of you already have it in your folders. Sarah, for what you done for conservatives to keep our hearts in the fight through the last 4 years I, and I hope evryone on this blog, can say truly, “God bless you, Sarah”. We are on the cusp of winning the most important election of our lifetime, and you, my friend, have had an awful lot to do with it.

    • wodiej

      What a wonderful summation of Gov. Palin’s character. You are right-her list of accomplishments is far and wide. I don’t know what God has in store for her but I’m certain it is not giving her opinion on Fox news for the next 20 years. I think she is concentrating on her family right now. Public service suits her. She wears it like a glove. God has wonderful plans for her that will be a blessing to this country some time in the future.

  • Amjean

    You can place a bet on a October surprise being an attack on the real or imagined
    perpetrators of this attack. The only thing that might stall this is if the media start
    questioning the timing of the possibility. They have covered up thus far, so I don’t see
    a lot of hope in this regard. Altho, they might start piling on Obama in order to save their
    own appearance of credibility.

    Obama does nothing if not for political purposes. Shameful.

    Four human lives lost. I pray that the American voters who have supported Obama
    wake up and see what an evil man he is. There is no other word for it than evil.

  • Amjean

    And now we can definitely add Hillary Clinton to the “evil” list. She stood in the
    rose garden by Obama’s side when they lied.

    • wodiej

      I thought she was decent until obama trashed her during the primaries then she took the SOS job w him. No respect for her at all.

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    When this woman runs for President they will have to rewrite the book on how it is done. When she speaks, the passion comes from her soul and it gets communicated with ease. She will need the likes of an Angelo Dundee in her corner. There will be a record turnout of voters because the people will be engaged like never before. Just what this Country’s doctor ordered. She will shake up the world. I can’t wait!

    • I hope Romney uses her, Savage’s and Limbaugh’s wisdom in his job as our president

  • John_Frank

    RS, thanks for posting this interview. Excellent interview by the Governor.

  • wodiej

    I always enjoy hearing Gov. Palin’s commentary on issues. Wow, she knocked this one out of the park. Great conservative and I admire her immensely. I wanted her to run for president. I wondered if her kids had something to do w her opting out especially here when she brought up her son Track. She got really angry at that point of the interview. Greta obviously is not buying the BS that obama is spewing either. God bless you Gov. Palin for not being afraid to tell the truth. No love lost w the media after the awful way she was treated in 08 and onward.

    • I am still waiting for that moment when Bill Maher hits her husband’s fist with his jaw.
      Todd may break it.
      Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese!!! 😉

      • bongobear

        I suspect Bill Maher is a coward who wouldn’t have the balls to spew his vile about Sarah Palin in the presence of Todd Palin…or Sarah herself for that matter.

  • colliemum

    Gov Palin is not mincing words, and is one of the very few who calls Bathhouse Barry’s lies what they are: ‘lies’.

    One other point: why is Greta ‘waiting’ to hear from the president about Libya? Does she want more lies to be reassured? It was interesting that Gov Palin side-stepped this question with great tact – after all, one doesn’t call one’s interviewer an idiot in real time on TV!

    I so wish Gov Palin had been given the chance to campaign for the down-ticket candidates. That the GOPe have sidelined her is something which should not be forgotten or forgiven, come Nov 8th!

  • JDOlson

    Agree, Scoop, that Palin has seldom seemed this fiery of late. She was in her defacto presidential mode, saying what needs to be said. Palin knows instinctively how to be the leader/tip of the spear we all need in a crisis. BTW, congrats on your shout out from Rush yesterday!

    It was frustrating to hear Greta talk tonight about the emails and wanting the BOob to address the nation on this. Does she not see how lacking in credibility he is and how amoral his lying has been?

    • colliemum

      I’m glad you also noticed Greta’s very odd attitude, asking and hoping for a ‘word’ from Bathhouse Barry, the Liar.

      I think she showed that far too many in the amoral, corrupt media still think the President is somehow sacrosanct, didn’t know, wasn’t told …

      I know I’m going Goodwin here, but I can’t help but be reminded of what Germans used to say in the 3rd reich when they heard about atrocities: that this must have been done by Hitler’s underlings, and if only the Fuehrer knew, he would make it go away.

    • PhillyCon

      It was frustrating to hear Greta talk tonight about the emails and wanting the BOob to address the nation on this. Does she not see how lacking in credibility he is and how amoral his lying has been?

      I used to feel this way about Greta and her style of argumentation. But, this is another method of trying to get people to think. Its a passive-agressive mode of delving through an issue. I have grown to appreciate these methods, since some people are not convinced by a straight up argument. Many in this country are clueless b/c of the crap they watch and read on the MSM.

      • JDOlson

        Ha! Greta is “concern trolling” the prez? Great insight.

        • PhillyCon

          Indeed. That’s my take.

          • JDOlson

            The more I think about your argument, the better it gets. After all, for years, this woman argued facts in court. Successfully. She wasn’t paid to draw her own conclusions but to lead others to those conclusions by stating the evidence.

            • PhillyCon

              Yes, precisely.

              What’s that saying, “there are many ways to skin a cat?” Living in a purple area has taught me to adjust my argumentation accordingly. If the goal is to persuade people, then the methods don’t have to be so “one size fits all.”

  • The facts would always come out. The big question is, will the mainstream media keep after this story? Maybe, now that they smell blood in the water. Also, the denial at the White House is getting harder and harder to keep straight and defend. The lies are making this administration fall apart, but are the American people listening? I certainly hope so. We have four dead Americans here and they deserve better than this.

  • When Sarah Palin speaks… Libtards everywhere listen and shake nervously. Many scurry back under the rocks or fridges from where they emerged. Others run and hide under their desks in mommy’s basement. All have a fear gripping their tiny burned out black little hearts! For they know what is coming! A dose of truth – then antidote if you will to all their BS, spin, lies and crap they have been putting out there hoping nobody would challenge it. When Sarah speaks. They know… They know the game is up. They have been caught in another lie and they tremble in eternal fear!

    Hmmm… May it always be that way! Cower you sniveling libtard dogs! God Bless Sarah Palin and her wonderful family!

  • denbren52

    By knowingly manufacturing a cover story for the Banghazi attacks, on behalf of the terrorists, Obama and Clinton provided aid and comfort to the enemy. That is treason, clear and simple. They have still done nothing to retaliate against those who attacked our sovereign soil and raised the flag of al Qaeda.

    This treasonous President must go!

  • Secretary of Energy, President in 2016.

    • dapicayune

      Her first act as SOE should be, with POTUS Romney/Congress’s approval,… fire all staff and shut down the DOE. Then she can be appointed as the new head of EPA, and repeat the cycle., etc., etc., etc..

  • bongobear

    Sarah Palin is, as usual, correct. Obama and his cronies in the MSM are disgusting liars and cowards and I hope to God they are brought to account for their behavior after this election is over.

  • Watcherinla

    This email on Libya should be front-page everywhere … I know, I’m dreaming but knowing this was a terrorist attack from the beginning, someone went out and found a video to support the lie. Then the White House was pressuring YouTube to take it down. Then a person making a video trailer is arrested and held which removes him from any scrutiny. Then, after all the lies and cover-ups, the president goes to bed and proceeds to hold his Vegas fundraiser the next day and holds to the video story for two weeks. Too many ‘thens’.

  • las1

    Greta… You still can’t figure it out eh?

    You big dummy Greta… Obama will NOT address the nation for you on Bengazi. You still can’t figure it out because you have assumed that Obama has, putatively, the interests of the nation in his heart. You big dummy Greta. Obama is a subversive

    Obama is an Islamist subversive. Pure and simple. Look at all his actions regarding pushing the Islamic narrative and advancing the Islamic cause and covering for the Muslim Brotherhood and advancing its agenda. No greater proof exists than advancing al Queda in Libya using Canada and Other European nations to gang up on Libya and using Chris Stevens as a subversive against Gadhafi, and as gun runner to Syria. Then there is Obama’s support for the fetid flower of the Arab Spring. Judge by his fruits. With Obama as his master, Christ Stevens compromised his own safety and ultimately paid the price.

    Bengazi was Obama’s big opportunity to push for shariaization of international law to impose anti-blasphemy. The disturbing proof of this was Obama declaring in the UN a curse and condemnation of anyone who does not agree with Islam.

    Yet this simple Obama speech in the UN is almost TOTALLY ignored by all media… including the blogosphere’s alternate media. Alternate media still do not fully get Islam and shariah… they see Obama’s UN speech as some embarrassing anomaly. That speech was a huge leap forward for anti-blasphemy laws… and it came from Obama himself. This is the gem that Bengazi produced… and this is why the alternate media is still scratching their heads over why Obama concocted such a gross lie about that YouTube video. Look to anti-blasphemy on the international stage. The explanation lies therein.

    • Great post!

    • GetWhatYouPayFor

      Nail on head! Most Americans run from the ugly truth. It appears easier than facing the ridicule of the subversive Left and their tin foil hat accusations. Fox News will not cover this angle either. The “establishment” goes along to get along. Thanks to people like you and the Internet we still have a chance……..for a while, because this too will be declared against the common good and punishable by prison or worse.

  • underconstantatack
    • Those links were great and I followed them. But if I can be so bold as to offer you a tiny piece of advice: Please give some indication of what the the link leads to. I am very cautious about following seemingly random links on websites. So a bit of context, such as a quote from the site, or some info about that the user will see there would be much appreciated. I could be out of order here, and I’ve seen others do the same, so this is NOT directed at just you. I hope you see this as the positive suggestion I truly meant it to be.

      • underconstantatack

        Oh definitely. Its actually very smart, a great idea. You’re right about having to be cautious about these things. Thanks Wolf 🙂

        • NO, thank you for taking my suggestion in the spirit in which it was offered! 🙂

  • anneinarkansas

    My favorite part is Gov. Palin’s strong attack on the media. She shows them for the losers they are. The media has become the enemy of America.

  • dapicayune

    If a US Ambassador/staff can be murdered and thrown under Obama’s bus without security, than no one is immune. (PS: thanks Hillary, for playing your State Dept. email cards, keep them coming.)

    Sic’em Sarah, hold our traitorous MSM’s feet to the fire.

    “Fourteen hours after the attack, President Obama sat down with Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes”

    POTUS Obama said, ”… Romney has a tendency to “shoot first, aim later” and that as president, “it’s important to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by facts and that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make them.” The president stopped short of calling Romney’s comments irresponsible but said “I’ll let the
    American people judge that.” (ht, Seagull1106)

    After two weeks of pushing a hurried and poorly crafted lie to America’s voters and the UN, and running apology TV spots in Paki with our dime – Yes, Barack, “We The People” will now be the judge of just who has “shot first, and aimed later,”

    You, POTUS Obama covered up the truth that these State Dept. real time emails now prove that you knew of and hid while you flew off to “Vegas, Baby” to campaign while our Consulate was still burning and the murdered bodies of our American heroes were being paraded through the cheering terrorist mobs in the streets of Benghazi.

    Disgusting doesn’t even begin to cover your despicable deceitful character and deeds.

    With any luck, you’ll now be impeached by the voters on 11/6, instead of the Congress thereafter. Apologize and leave, or face our wrath.

    Thanks to the foreign press (London’s “Independent”) and our Fox News, Breitbart, and CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson for covering this horror story from the beginning to bring out the truth that Obama and his bought-off MSM have attempted to bury, just to win his reelection.

  • GEDouglas

    Address the press! Greta, please! BO does not have the character or courage to “address the public” on any issue much less one so serious.

  • DocBarry1

    Read her Facebook posting on this matter – read the letter sent to obama from McCain and others re this matter – stay on this

    Where is the LSM – if they run from this story – SHAME SHAME ON THEM!!!!!

  • Gabriel Urrea

    She may have balls, but that’s not enough.
    What should be concerning it’s not her remarks, after all she’s nuts and dumb. What it’s really concerning it’s how many people still follow her and believes what she says.
    Does it make those people nuts and dumb?
    Just nuts? Just dumb?
    You tell me.
