Skip to comments.Q&A: Sarah Palin on Obama and Her Own Future
Posted on 12/10/2010 5:53:03 PM PST by Al B.
The following are excerpts from a series of e-mails between TIME's Jay Newton-Small and Sarah Palin as the former Alaska Governor crisscrossed the country for candidates and then for her book tour over the last six weeks.
What do you think of Obama's presidency thus far?
Two words: Jimmy Carter.
Can a Republican beat him in 2012 and, if so, who?
Yes, someone who will draw a sharp contrast. Obama is now a very polarizing figure. In the battleground states, he's polling at 40% or below. The country is rejecting his agenda.
Why do you think you can beat Barack Obama?
In 2012, Barack Obama will have what he did not have in 2008: a record in office. Americans have seen over the past two years what that record is and what he really stands for. My vision of America is diametrically opposed to his. He sees America as the problem. I see America as the solution if only our creative energy, ingenuity, and entrepreneurial spirit were not shackled and stymied by government. He believes in radical transformation to move us in the direction of the failed ideologies that so many of our allies in Europe are now trying to shake off as they face economic turmoil. I believe in restoration of the time-tested principles of the free market and individual liberty that have historically made us free and prosperous and peaceful and strong as "the abiding beacon of freedom" and "the last best hope of earth" that Reagan and Lincoln called us.
If you won the presidency what would be the first things you'd do in office?
The first priority of the next Republican president should be to sign a bill for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare with true free-market, patient-centered reform.

To be followed by nuking Iran and North Korea.
Go, Sarah, GO!!
Wow, that’s a great interview! No blatant or thinly veiled attacks from the interviewer. Just straight-forward questions and from the heart answers. Love it.
“In 2012, Barack Obama will have what he did not have in 2008: a record in office.”
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!
In 3 articles for time including 2 cover stories, Jay Newton-Small has been very fair to Palin. She has known Palin since before the ‘08 campaign, which may explain part of it.
“We continue to hear the yapping from these “anonymous” sources. Wimps. These are the same self-proclaimed political experts who say they can take on the nation’s financial crisis and deal with the likes of Ahmadinejad, but they’re not courageous enough to put their names behind their criticisms of a hockey mom from Wasilla.”
Heh heh heh ... what did she have to say about Zero’s abdication of his throne today?
Two words: Jimmy Carter
LOL... The end. Thats it! That says it all!
This, imo, is the biggest task that needs doing. The budget needs going through with a fine toothed comb and every item needs to be justified on its own merits. Palin did that as governor. When she found out how much work it entailed, she asked how did previous governors handle it and was told, they didn't, they just signed off on it. The federal budget is out of control and no one knows what is in it or how it got that way and that has to change!
She’s on her game and shooting straight!
GO Sarah and Drill, baby, Drill!
She’s ‘grate’, isn’t she?
We’ll have to check her tweets and FaceBook.
She’s likely disgusted and still laughing at obama’s abdication today...lol.
Woo-Hoo! You betcha, Jim!
Go, Sarah, GO!
Last night, that idiot Barbara Walters, asked Sarah Palin to describe herself in three words. Sarah said, “determined, patriotic, and faithful.”
If he runs for re-election can the states demand to see his long form birth certificate? Could he be deemed unqualified after serving one term?
One in a million, Jim.
