TIME's Interview with Sarah Palin: 'It's All for Alaska'
Time ^ | July 7, 2009 | Jay Newton-Small

Posted on 07/07/2009 9:31:06 AM PDT by Al B.

The Palins were staying with Sarah's in-laws Bob and Blanche Kallstrom when the soon-to-be-ex-governor of Alaska sat down for an interview. The Kallstroms are two of the 2,500 full-time residents of Dillingham, Alaska, and owners of the Bristol Bay Inn and a hardware store.


What do you think is wrong right now with what President Obama is doing in particular?

President Obama is growing government outrageously, and it's immoral and it's uneconomic, his plan that he tries to sell America. His plan to "put America on the right track" economically, incurring the debt that our nation is incurring, trillions of dollars that we're passing on to our kids, expecting them to pay off for us, is immoral and doesn't even make economic sense. So, his growth of government agenda needs to be ratcheted back, and it's going to take good people who have the guts to stand up to him, stand up to him and debate policy, not personalities, not partisan politics, but policy to effect the change that we need there. And allow free enterprise and the industrious Americans who run our small businesses and want to raise a family, allowing our families to grow and prosper and thrive, Americans who still believe in those ideals to get in there and effect change. I want to work for people who believe in that.

Wow, I would never expect Time to pretty much just give the interview verbatim.

Excellent job on both sides.

Good read. She’s given a chance to speak. And I agree with her positions on the issues. Good interview, not one word of back-biting author commentary that I’ve seen so much of in other articles.

I think they are trying to draw her out, make her comfortable with certain journalists, so that they can take advantage of the relationships in the future.

I do not believe for a single SECOND that they will EVER give her an even break if she runs for President.

“it’s immoral and it’s uneconomic...”

WOW...immoral? lol! That is going to leave a mark.

If this is the Sarah Palin we get now..then I am glad she stepped away from the Gov office!

Why the HELL would she sit down with Slime magazine? After the way the LameStream Media has treated her...
