It was a very good interview. Watched it; then watched Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. He had Bill Cristol, moderate, establishment conservative, Myra Liasson, Public Radio shill lib, a new woman from Wall St. Journal who was reasonable, but probably at least moderate (she didn't try to paint Obama Admin in glowing colors, and was 10% fair on Palin, and John Podesta, spouting Dem party line and lies. Chris, at least, has seemingly begun to appreciate Sarah, but his forum lineup was pitiful.

I’m watching it now.

Palin looks and sounds presidential. She is ready for every question. She sounds GREAT.

Chris Wallace should shut up and let her finish the damn questions. While Wallace could have been worse, he’s such a little Romney loving ass.

Palin hit it out of the park. By the end of the interview, she had Chris Wallace completely charmed. I think she has done a whole lot of homework since running for VP with McLame. Also, it seems as though she has worked on lowering her voice, so she doesn’t sound as shrill as she used to sound. Another thing my family and I noticed is that she took some pauses to think before she answered some of the tougher questions. She was just more articulate and to the point in this interview. The bottom line, I think the dims and Obamanation better prepare for the Palin tsunami or they are going to get washed out to sea.

I agree with your assessment.

The newbie from WSJ is Kimberly Strossel, who seems to me a reliable conservative.
The overall recommendation of this group seemed to be: The GOP candidate has got to be middle road because that's where the bulk of the vote lies.

Of course there are other ways to get the winning share of votes, but these weren't considered.

Podesta was nothing but an Obama an ass wipe accolyte. Liasson looked like she had a facelift? If so, not bad, not bad.

Sarah was absolutely superb!

It was a solid performance and great on target with the facts.

In the later follow up about how the republicans can get a better response from the economy I noted that the panel mentioned cutting spending and cutting regulation but did not mention Sarah’s comment on cheaper energy. This is a key issue to me because opening up the reserves to drilling (and this means curtailing the environmental and EPA action to delay it) will immediately open up new jobs and at the same time send a message to the markets that the US is going to become a larger producer of energy. This seems to be the best message to Americans who want to see more job creation.

And Sarah missed a point she almost made — cutting spending if it is targeted at the regulators — will have the effect of cutting regulations too. Let the regulators deal with a loss of staff and force them to focus on the regulations that are the most important. This would be another good position for Sarah to take.

I do agree with Bill on the panel too, if it becomes a two person race it is time for Ryan or Cristy to rethink where they can do the most good.

A "Full Interview"?

I missed it.

What did she say about the tens of millions who've invaded our country from Mexico, resulting in chocked off hospitals, health care, schools, jails, welfare and social services?

she came out against the dream act this week. That’s more than any other GOP candiddate has done, she stood beside Brewer when she signed the Az immigration bill and she has called for new ROE for our border security force and closing of the border....

If your main concern is immigration Palin is the only candidate for you

So she didn't comment on the above?

If your main concern is immigration

Lets put it this way, Yemen, Outer Mongolia and places like Libya are at the bottom of my list.

Sarah has quite a range of well-presented, well-reasoned positions on all the issues under the President’s purview. It’s remarkable that a woman who is not running for president (just ask Romney, the Obama Regime, and the mainstream media) would have given so much thought to every issue. If this keeps up, I may have to reconsider my blind faith in everything MSNBC.

Your president is violating the law in Libya. It should be higher on your list.

Your president and the past president aided and abetted an epic violent invasion of your country, which has undermined your hospitals, health care, jails, schools and resulted in tens of thousands of Americans being stabbed, run over, robbed, raped, burglarized, assaulted, which has compromised your very electoral process and national security.

And I am supposed to worry about Libya?

Thanks for that bit of humor.

She has a record on the issue outside of this interview. By “full”, as typically used when a video clip is posted and understood by most human beings, the site where this is from is indicating the entire interview has been posted. Per FR rules, the OP posted the exact title from there. Anyway, others have told you her position on immigration, what do you think?

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, now, I know that your past as governor of Alaska didn’t — was not the same time that Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona has gotten into office, but I assume that sort of governor to governor...
PALIN: Yes.
VAN SUSTEREN: What’s your thought on the heat that she’s taking over this statute?
PALIN: I’m proud of Jan Brewer for standing up for the constituents in her state, sending a message to Washington, sending a message to President Obama saying, Hey, you need to do your job, sir. And if you’re not going to do it, OK, then we are compelled to do the job for you until you get it right.
President Obama has been suspiciously silent on this issue, hasn’t he? We don’t even know where he stands on immigration reform or securing our borders. He doesn’t talk about it. He gets to punt on that one. And that’s unfortunate because this is a big issue. It’s all about national security. It’s about our sister border states that are inundated with violence and with crime because people illegally crossing the border, engaging in illegal activities for too long now. And some of these border states are saying, Now we’ve had enough. I admire Jan Brewer for taking a stand.
VAN SUSTEREN: Why do you think — I mean, for 20-some years, maybe even longer, even going back to President Reagan — everyone has always said, We’re going to secure the borders.
PALIN: Yes.
VAN SUSTEREN: Nobody has done anything. I mean, or almost nothing.
PALIN: Because they’ve made it political and they haven’t understood that unsecure borders isn’t fair to anybody. It’s not fair to American citizens who ware here legally, paying taxes, following the rules, doing all the things that an American citizen is expected to do. It’s not fair to them. But it’s not fair to the illegal aliens, either, here. They want to come pursue an American dream. Some of them do want to be here to work. But they’re forever going to have to hide because, you know, government’s going to crack down on them when (INAUDIBLE)
So they need to follow that path of legal citizenship, obviously. But these politicians, presidents in the past who have not secured the border, they’ve made it a political issue. They haven’t wanted to tick off a potential base of Hispanic voters, so they haven’t made the tough decisions. And that’s no way to solve the problem. That’s no way to solve any challenge in America, by ducking and hiding and creating division and making these partisan issues out of it.
(END VIDEOTAPE)
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, we have still more with Governor Sarah Palin. Governor Palin is blunt about what she would do about illegal immigration. She’s going to tell you.
(COMMERCIAL BREAK)
VAN SUSTEREN: Continuing with former governor Sarah Palin on illegal immigration.
(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)
VAN SUSTEREN: Both parties have made promises. I mean, we pull up sound bites where, you know, both sides, you know, Democrat, Republicans, say, you know, Secure the border, secure the border. And then once in office, we certainly don’t see a whole lot of action. Had the election gone another way, or even if you were president, what would you do about immigration?
PALIN: The very first thing is literally secure the border!
VAN SUSTEREN: How?
PALIN: People mock the idea of a fence. What’s wrong with building a fence? Yes, let’s physically secure the border. Let’s ramp up border control. Let’s provide the tools for those who are putting their lives on the line in order to stop illegal immigration of these aliens. Those are a couple of things.
And then you don’t start talking about amnesty, either, kind of as this last-minute, Oh, anybody who’s here in the country right now, we’re going to provide you amnesty, and even though you’ve broken the law and we are a nation of laws, you’ve broken that, we’ll still give you — because then there’s going to be a huge influx of those wanting kind of at the last minute to come over the border because they know that they will forever then receive that amnesty.
So you don’t start talking about that, but the very first thing you do is physically, literally secure those borders. It baffles me and most Americans why for all these years presidents, administrations have spoken about it but never done it.

Hit a 500 foot homerun...Especially classy that she said that she apologized if she stepped on Romney’s toes, because she believes that Romney has the best interest of America at heart..but she reserved the right to step on the toes on those who would do harm to the country.

Agreed on all counts. This was the most reasoned and polished interview I’ve ever seen from Governor Palin. Wallace wasn’t pitching her softballs, and she didn’t duck any of the questions or paper over her answers with any buzz words or sound bites. I thought her answers showed a lot of specificity and depth on a broad range of policy issues. By the end of it, poor Chris Wallace could only smile and giggle...he was utterly and uncharacteristically charmed and disarmed.

Like Wallace said, I’m warming to the idea of her being a serious and formidable contender if she declares her candidacy. Palin Tsunami, indeed!

This interview is the best one I’ve ever see her do.

She was well-prepared, confident, and effective.

I’m more enamored with her ability to compliment Romney, then take two or three huge swipes at him, and then compliment him again all without missing a beat.

She basically chewed him up and spit him out with Ninja-like precision in such a manner that he would look like a complete schmuck if he even said anything about it.

I have no doubt that Sarah is a nice person, but I wouldn’t want to be on her bad side.

Being totally unbiased:

Best interview I've seen any potential candidate or current candidate. Wallace was tough - GOOD. She handled it well. So if she is NOT running, and there are some who would rather see someone else as the GOP candidate, could they PLEASE get up there and sound like Sarah did today?

PLEEEEEEASE ???

and with that, it's time to go make soup

she has been running since Nov 2008.

the two biggest reasons why she is running.

1) she didn’t renew SPAK for a second season. Leaving millions on the table. If it was about the money she would be doing season 2 of SPAK

2) she hasn’t used a telepromter since 2008. You do not relearn how to give a speech and practice that new speech technique over 2 years for no reason. she will be on stage with no telempromter against TOTUS.

those are just 2 major pieces of evidence people ignore. there are many many more. All signs point to her running.

here is one more. Out of all the candidates the only one people do not know is running is Palin. that is on purpose Palin will not disclose it until her speech. she will not let anything leak about the speech. All media outlets will cover the speech. and It will be delivered in primetime.

Most everyone thinks she is running...that is what I've thought too...but lately and also what Franklin Graham said...it has made me doubt she truly plans to run. It looks to me like she is doing EVERYTHING necessary to run for President. IF she runs, she'll win. She has everything set up with such a genius strategy, I've been seeing...she will win. And we've not seen nothing yet!!! GO SARAH GO!!!

At long last, an interview that doesnt sound rehearsed to death. She actually sounds genuinely concerned and sounds like...HERSELF, not some newbie sock puppet for McLame. If she keeps this up I might have to vote for her. I liked the “return manufacturing to the USA” part”.

She needs to distance herself 150% from McCain.
