Sarah Palin not happy about Tea Party candidates compromising on budget cuts

Sarah Palin says that it’s a shame that after Americans worked so hard to hire Tea Party candidates and send them to Washington, that some are going along with the compromise on budget cuts. She says they need to maintain a steel spine and not compromise.

When asked about cutting aid to Israel and other foreign governments as Rand Paul had suggested, she strongly supported continuing to send aid to our one democratic ally, Israel, but added that she’s sure there is waste in the aid we send and that we shouldn’t be sending aid to those countries who threaten to harm Americans in any way.



There’s so much more as the whole interview was very good, including some tough talk about energy, Libya, and Kathy Griffin. The above mentioned comes in the first clip.

Enjoy!

I truly hope Palin goes rogue if she does decide to run. By this, I mean she should come out, announce her candidancy and, at the same time, annouce her VP Choice, and key cabinet appointee’s like Attorney General, EPA Secretary, Education Secretary, etc. The people who currently hold these posts are HATED by anyone who knows what truly goes on in D.C. I’m sure Governor Palin is a “team player” and knows it will take a team effort to beat Obama and Company….and I know she can put together a AWESOME team to get the job done!

Sarah doesn’t understand the need to mix reality with politics at some point. Instead of general one-liners, she should deal more with specifics. The needed cuts (SS and MC) are too complicated for Sarah to deal with, and they’d affect a LOT of people (including Republicans) so it’s an off-limits topic for her.

WTF does Kathy Griffin have to do with anything.

Indies who are squishy on her will firm up once they see her on the campaign trail. Remember, no one outside of Alaska has seen more than a hint of the way she will run a campaign. After her barnburner @ the RNC, she was somewhat muzzled and kept away from the public by McCain’s team. She won’t have that weight around her neck this time. And after 2 more years of Zer0 in the WH, the public will want a real American back @ 1600. As an aside, name another potential candidate that LTC West would run with.

SARAH PALIN / (Fill in the Blank) 2012!!!!!!!! Something to consider; Note; this principal ALSO applies to the OLD 
republican establishment (Bush’s, etc) You can tell when the LEFT REALLY IS scared of a Republican by the amount of vitriol their TROLLS spew. The MORE they SPEW,… the MORE terrified they are the of the Republican 
being able to beat their Dumb-O-cRAT candidate. Sarah Palin is the PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS, as is Michele Bachmann. Sarah Palin SCARES the we-we out of the Leftwing-Nut, Libratard, Progressive, Dumb-O-cRAT Party,… Because,.. Wait for it,… They KNOW Sarah Palin IS electable,… AND IF she runs against barry in 2012,… She WILL CRUSH him with indisputable numbers. (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.… Read more »

Gov. Palin needs to (with her experience) calculate (with a plan) what price per gallon of gas she can guarantee as President and make that her whole campaign. “I promise to America that gas will be .99 cents per gallon within the first 3 months of my presidency” or whatever the price is or time frame is and make everyone else wanting to be president answer to this with their plan. This seems so EASY to me!! KISS

Although your idea is admirable, I don’t think Sarah would do that, nor could she get that to happen quickly. Even under her campaign to drill, if she had been elected in 2008, it would take years to see the results. For example, in the northeast there is a huge rush for natural gas in the region. Even with that rush, it’s been taking years to get it going. Leases have to be handled, seismic tests need to be done, roads have to be made, equipment has to be hauled in, pipelines have to be developed, and wells have to be drilled. It’s a long drawn-out process. The first signs of benefits to opening up new areas won’t be seen for at least a year, but the full value of such actions may not come to fruition until as late as near the end of a president’s second term or… Read more »

That is why you fast track the whole deal and cut all fees in half if they can get gas and oil wells into production within 12 months. If they don’t make the deadline they pay the full fee plus 25%.

There is no reason why we can’t be totally independent with domestic oil within 10 years. Then you can tell the Middle East to pound sand.

Fast track or not, I’ve seen what goes on in the Northeast. It’ll take time to get the man power moving for that kind of development. It’ll easily create hundreds of thousands of jobs, between the industry and those that support it. But It’ll also take time to train the employees and that might just be one of the biggest bottlenecks in the short term. I’m not trying to be a downer, I just tend to hold back and look at it from more of a logistical point of view. I do like the incentive you mention, but I wouldn’t want to punish them after such a deadline, because rushing something like this would be a political nightmare if something disastrous happened (i.e. BP oil spill). BTW, 10 years is about the estimate I hinted around in my post for the full fruition from the efforts. Imagine if Clinton or… Read more »

I agree with everything you’ve written on this and Palin knows the score. If there is one subject nobody can dis Palin on it’s energy development, so I don’t have any doubt she would be able to handle it AND explain the long term benefits so that people would understand it without needing a cynical “promise”.

Just changing the atmosphere will do wonders towards any energy independent goal. I have no doubt that Palin will not only work on the long term changes needed, but will do everything in her power to affect change the minute she gets elected.

If she runs. that is.

If Sarah had oil revenue and the state budget under control, she’d have cut AK loose from the federal teat and thumbed her nose at Washington. As it is, AK is the 3rd biggest recipient of fed funding – in 2005 AK got $1.84 for each $1 paid in fed tax, while NJ [who Sarah dissed yesterday] got $0.61 for each $1 paid, and “libtard” CA got $0.78 for each $1 paid – both were subsidizing AK’s budget while the state was selling oil…

Tea Partiers may want to take note of how much their state receives from the fed before they chant “shrink the government”. I agree fed spending should be cut, and think AK should get cut first.

Best would have been continued development of alternative energy sources to reduce dependence on oil – all that stopped when oil dropped from $140/barrel to under $100. But even electricity (if many cars were electric) takes energy and money to produce – nuclear power doesn’t take much resource to produce, but the costs of plants is high. Wind power is good (but noisy), but takes new transmission lines to move it.

But oil price is manipulated. Speculation only started around 1980. I don’t think it’s good to allow natural resources to be priced around supply and demand. Someday they’ll be speculating water.

Best to keep US reserves until oil hits $300/barrel (give it 10-15 years, if not sooner), but trust me, no oil company will ever “give it away”. We might keep the cost down to $6/gallon instead of $15/gal.

Thanks for the Obama Energy Policy perspective.
There’s a good chance that you’d see OPEC flood the market with bountiful and cheap crude to curb the financial incentive to drill for our domestic supplies.
They did it before, in the 90’s, in an attempt to curb the influence of increased Russian oil on the market. Clinton negotiated with the Saudi’s to halt that situation though.

“There’s a good chance that you’d see OPEC flood the market with bountiful and cheap crude to curb the financial incentive to drill for our domestic supplies.”

I highly doubt it. OPEC realized there’s more profit by sticking together – speculators are driving up prices. Oil refined today was brought in weeks ago. There is no shortage – oil price is not based on supply and demand. And Russia’s not going to give anything away – remember when Gazprom shut off natural gas to Europe – they all play hardball.

I’d like to know the price of Alaskan and Texas oil sold to US refineries when the price was $140/barrel. Considering what I’ve heard (those state budgets were based on the higher revenue, and they had trouble when it dropped below $80/bbl), I don’t think anyone would do anyone any favors.

This article talks about Russia’s position – holding supply in check. There’s plenty of oil, but revenue comes first. Speculators are causing money to be concentrated to oil producers – it’s going to kill the economic recovery. Tax cuts to the middle class do nothing at this point – what I might get back is a fraction of what it costs for a year’s worth of gas. Increased energy costs are like a regressive tax – it affects a LOT of lower earners more than the FEW upper earners, and lower earners are the ones who circulate money in the broad economy (when they don’t have to put it all in their gas tank).

What are talking about DB? Just issuing drilling permits and allowing more leases to be purchased in the continental U.S. would drop the price of a barrel of oil tomorrow! These prices are as psychological as they are practical. When new sources are discovered, they have immediate impact on the markets. Get a clue. It wouldn’t take years.

It wouldn’t work since the price of oil depends on world markets (demand not a problem yet), and you can’t cut fed spending and subsidize the cost of gas at the same time.

I wouldn’t take that conversation so lightly. Montanans say Schweitzer has done a good job. What I got from that is state budgets are all different – what one state does (or has to do) may not apply to other states. Montana public service workers bargained to take cuts to save the state money – I can’t see most Republicans doing this on a national level (not when they voted to extend all Bush cuts to the detriment of the country).

All I care about is getting budgets balanced and debt paid. I don’t care who does it, what party they’re in, or names they’re called. Americans are spoiled – the biggest whiners (Tea Partiers) will flip-flop on spending cuts when they see cuts affect them.
