Sarah Palin on Fox News: 'More power to Rick Perry'

Palin: 'More power to Rick Perry'
By: Alexander Burns
August 18, 2011 03:16 PM EDT

Sarah Palin, who said once again today that she's still open to a 2012 presidential bid, tells Fox News's Megyn Kelly that she's on Team Perry when it comes to the Federal Reserve:

“More power to Rick Perry for calling it like he saw it, and the president in his typical reactionary way, did elevate Rick Perry and what it is that he had to say. And what Rick Perry had to say is what I wrote about 10 months ago, about quantitative easing and how monetizing our debt and printing more money in order to, essentially, devalue our dollar and devalue the problem that we’re facing today, with the debt that’s being incurred. What Rick Perry was talking about is what many of us have been talking about for many, many months, and that is the danger of, now, a QE3 program being put into place. And you know, he used some of that rascal type of rhetoric that he uses there in Texas and evidently the president took some issue to that. But it’s evidence, too, though, of our president’s arrogance, unfortunately, to tell a presidential candidate what to say, what not to say.”

Ah, what would campaign season be around here without absurdly mawkish graphics? At least they don’t feature Alan Keyes’ mug anymore.

I thought Rick Perry was Persona non grata around here because he is a Rove plant and closet Bilderberg guy?

Sarah was talking about this months ago. Ofcourse she would agree with him.
Finally maybe people will start paying attention to how the elites are jerking us around.

Nice. Sarah never disappoints, and I’m getting excited about Perry. He’s not in her league but the Bushies hate him so that makes me love him.

I can hear it now. Regardless if it is Palin/Perry or Perry/Palin the dims will say it is nothing but a bunch of pee pee down our throats.

Having said that I would have a hard time deciding which of the two alternatives I would want. I could strongly endorse either one.

And to hell with the piss-ant dims.

“.....the Bushies hate him so that makes me love him.”

Perry is not my number one choice, especially because of his stance on illegal immigration. However, his stature is elevated in my eyes, too, because the Bush family doesn’t like him. Neither does Karl Rove, another plus.

Perry seems to irritate Chrissy Matthews, so that’s good, too.

By the way, I’d like to thank your Sailor and 2 Marines for their service to America.

I’m just happy we have multiple voices trying to focus Americans on the serious issues.

I hope to get a chance to see him. So far, I've found him a nice change of pace in an otherwise mostly underwhelming field.

Amen ALL republican candidates should be exposing by speaking clearly that the Democrat party is a criminal enterprise..

Rick Perry is only speaking the obvious..
Ron Paul is the NOT the only one over the target anymore.. (getting FLAK)

Captain Obvious from Texas has stopped mumbling and is speaking clearly.. like Newt... <<-trying to be relevant..
The others had better start speaking UP or become Irrelevant

I think they’re the two strongest candidates by far, and like you, I could support them both as a ticket.

Well, Perry may not be so bad. But you have to admit, Sarah was there first and said it in a way that Bernanke wasn’t going to swing from a tree limb. Sarah is a double bladed knife, she defends and guts at the same time.

I agree. From what Rush said today it appears that the Republican establishment does not like Perry. That makes me like Perry even more.

I don’t think she is going to bash the other candidates even if she does run. And as far as I know, Perry has not done that either. I think if she runs Perry and Palin are going to focus on bashing Obama and his commie admin and the others better start bashing bambi hard too if they want to keep up.

She is of course talking about his freedom of speech on the matter. Although I suspect that some overly zealous individuals will try to manipulate the facts to meat their own ends.

That's actually a pretty despicable human trait...

Palin is very into Rick Perry. Has very nice words for him. Here is what she said during his last election for Gov.:

“He walks the walk of a true conservative, and he sticks by his guns. You know how I feel about guns.”

That is only part of what she has to say. It's a valid point, but there's more.

Palin agrees with Perry, says his point is one she's talked about extensively over past months, and also chastises Obama for having the temerity to suggest to Perry or anyone else what they can or cannot talk about.

She endorsed the words she said ten months ago - so a heads up for him speaking them again. Good that he has been taking notes. When Sarah speaks everyone listens.
