    Sarah on Greta:

    re Susan Rice: It’s a question of competency, not gender or skin color.

    This entire matter indicates a GENERAL lack of competency, and transparency, and truthfulness in the whole administration..To this very day there has been no apology or explanation to the American People re Benghazi.

    The obama administration lacks transparency and honesty.

    Four brave, innocent Americans were killed, and we still have no answers.

    They play politics instead of being STRAIGHT WITH THE PEOPLE.

    Jay Carney (White House Press Secretary) has been "obstinate and arrogant.."

    IF SARAH WERE A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA, she would be offended and would want to be a better reporter and investigator than these people have been.

    "SO WHAT?" she stirringly says to the idea that reporters "lose access" to the White House by seeking answers. Who needs "access" to LIES!!!–LIES–way to "tell it like it is," Governor!!

    Benghazi is just ONE EXAMPLE of the DECEPTION of this White House and of the mode of operation in DC.

    The House of Representatives has great power–the power of the pursestrings–the American People just reelected them–they have to take a stand against obama–they cannot go wobbly on us–they cannot be wusses!!–implicit censure of Boehner!!!

    "WE HAVE ALREADY GONE OVER THE CLIFF" re the supposed financial cliff–The only question now is how we are going to be thumping at the bottom of the cliff!!

    She refers to obama’s "fairytale utopia."

    It comes down to a NEED FOR LEADERSHIP in our country.

    Great, great interview.

    My observation: We need YOUR leadership, Governor …

    RUN, SARAH, RUN!!!

    I shall have more on the interview early tomorrow, guys.

    God bless!!

    • aaron66krohn

      Couldn’t have given a better round-up of Sarah’s quotes from one of her better interviews!!

      Thanks, BB!!

      That "SO WHAT??" blew me AWAY!!!!
      "Mama Grizzly" at full RAGING speed!!!

      Playing a sort of "devil’s advocate", I will say there was one "quote" she COULD have said….but missed it!!

      After Greta played that clip of Gingrich talking of how he and Clinton (paraphrased) "went 35 days face-to-face…..instead of letting 2nd and 3rd level guys do it…..", Sarah SHOULD have said something like this:

      "Speaker Gingrich is spot on!!  When I was Governor, I sat down and negotiated NOT with the assistant to the assistant, but with the CEO’S of the biggest oil companies in the world….and we got things DONE!!!"

      But heh…..SO WHAT???!!!

      LOL

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        LOL–thanks, Aaron!!

    • M_Minnesota

      Excellent round up of the interview roomie!

      Great interview by Palin!    I would only add to say to the WH Press corps   "You really don’t have access, youv’e got celebrity."

      Have a great day Brianus/everyone!!!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, Roomie!!

  • heshtesh

    Sarah makes it clear to the GOP, there’s a reason you were voted back in!

  • mymati

    Sarah continues to tell the truth and point out the LSM’s deficiencies like no other.

  • Guest

    Refreshing to hear our leader ….
    Would be wonderful if she were chosen to lead Congress….
    SP can show them how to manage the purse strings.

    • wodiej

      Entire interview was excellent but Gov. Palin’s point about the House holding control of spending has troubled me for a long time.  Why don’t they cut off the spending and refuse funding the waste that is going on w Dems?

      • 08hayabusa

        One word RINO’s. They are still in charge. Boehner should be replaced by Allen West. That’s right, you do not have to be an elected member of the House to be nominated and voted it’s Speaker.

        Or how about Sarah Palin? But personally I want her to be our next President. Although she could do a bang up job until the end of 2014.

        I really hope she runs this time. Otherwise it will be another RINO like Rubio or Bush, and consequently another failure. Only a Conservative like Reagan can win and we all know there is only one person that fits that bill.

  • Ryan

    On the subject of the fiscal cliff, I’d love it if Sarah follows the Gingrich/Krauthhamer and blogger logic of the Walk Away/ Let It Burn theory. Until the Democrats get real, (which they won’t) there is no point in rational discussion of a deal- period. I’d love it if Sarah tweeted Let It Burn or Walk Away. Perhaps even a Facebook post?

    • RodPatrick

      Hates that pompous name.  Krauthammer.

  • MarkRNY

    Man, I love this interview. One of the best imo. 17 plus minutes long. Serious times, serious, P.Oed Sarah (she looked beautiful btw).

    These two were hammering O as a team across the board. Sarah got pissed when Greta mentioned access as an excuse for Media corruption, but Greta ended up on the same page.

    "We’ve already gone over the fiscal cliff". Once again, Sarah’s a light year and a half ahead of anyone else out there. We’re at the bottom of the cliff looking up! Now what?!

    Greta’s a full body length (in her case like 5’1″) above any other interviewer on FOX imo. Keep her, give Malkin and Jed BOR’s and Hannity’s spots, and we’d have a true opposition network.

    Sarah…lol…you are SO fricken needed…wonder if Mitten can get booked on the Food Network now?? (bet he’d make white bread toast, no butter).

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks, Sir Marcus!!

      Again, I just loved her "So What?" re "loss of access" by the media to the White House if they ask hard questions –and what is it to which they will lose "access"??–LIES!!!!–Right on, Governor!

      This is a Warrior Lady who was raised in a LAND OF REALITY, Alaska, not in a land of FOOLISH FABLES, Washington, DC–and she is a Truth-Speaker to the American People.

      If she runs for 2016, she will win in a landslide, IMHO.

      God bless, Bro–and I agree–she was beautiful tonight!!

    • socon

       "…white bread toast, no butter."  LOL

  • John_Frank

    Excellent interview.

    Adrienne, thank you for posting the video and h/t Sarahnet.net.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, JF!!

  • Pete Petretich

    "Don’t be wusses…"
    God, I love that woman!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, Pete!!

  • aafan

    Great interview. Greta kept trying to balance blame on both WH and House leadership and advocated compromise and Gov Palin politely kept opposing it. The WH  plans and the current situation is so bad in her view that no middle ground is possible. House leadership shoulld just rein it in.

    Sometimes Gov Palin shoulld directly say to Greta that she does not agree, instead of taking a milder diversion route to  show disagreement.

    If there is going to be fight beween Gov Palin and Mrs Clinton, Greta will be on Clinton’s side.

    For 2016, there should not be any situation watch or evaluation. Gov Palin should just plunge in and try who ever else is in the race and what ever is the environment. It has to be tried fail or succeed. If one thinks too much, a lot of ifs and buts emerge. So just get in and then plan how best to achieve the objective. If there is failure on the way so be it.

  • Freempg

    I don’t get women and their hair. Is it possible to leave it alone?

    • Guest

      lol….no!

      u too funny.

    • wodiej

      I don’t get men ogling women.  Is it possible for them to stop doing that?

      • Freempg

        Not what I was doing. But to answer your question. No.

        • socon

           Well, thank God for that!

        • MarkRNY

          LOL!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

       it appears to me the lighting was not good last night nor was there a fire going behind her as in previous interviews. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Suki-Pero/100001668382968 Suki Pero

      No.  Not really.  Sometime you need a change.  Also, winter is dark, summer is light.  We need hair for the season.  Spring is full, fall is free.

    • socon

      We do mess around with our hair alot!  Sarah even more so.  lol

  • Lemuel Vargas

    Those who voted for Obama and who did not vote for Mitt out of "principles" must live the consequences of their action. As they always say, Karma is a biach..

    • Guest

      Those who voted for Willard and corrupt crony capitalism must live with the consequences of their action. As they always
      say, "Don’t be wusses!"

      See how that works.

      You only have one vote. People have to vote their conscience. We still have that right in this country. It’s called freedom!

    • Jean_A

      Nobody here voted for Obama.

      What principle are we taking about here?

      • Lemuel Vargas

        just to let you to know that the karma must equally be shared by those who voted for Obama and those who did not vote for Mitt who are TPs because of their so called "principles" because as have been read somewhere by me, if only 333,000 voted in every swing state, we could have gotten rid of Obama and Obamacare.

        • Jean_A

          2010 was to slowq down Obamacare.  2012 was to end Obamacare.  Romney was Obamacare.

          How many times to you think you can fool the American people?

        • socon

          Woulda, coulda, shoulda.  We lost.  I think it’s time to move on.

          If the GOP tries to shove another clueless RINO down our throats in 2016 we’re going to lose again.

          • bejocy

            The results of the last election were because of FRAUD….unless it’s possible to have a 180% voter turnout.

            • socon

              Fraud is just ONE reason Mitt lost, and until we can prove your assertion, it’s irrelevant. 

              Romney was a weak candidate.  He even lost the Asian vote by a huge margin!  Ridiculous.

            • socon

              I’m just not into the victim game.  We will lose again in 2016 unless we nominate a candidate who is savvy enough to hire political strategists to take on the democrat thugs.

              Romney was supposed to be "electable."  He and his campaign staff were obviously not up to the task.

              I wish Republicans would stop apologizing for losers.  I’m sorry Romney lost, but not for his bruised ego–for our country.

              • bejocy

                So, we are on the same side.   

                • socon

                  Of course, though I wasn’t sure about Mitt Romney after the cr@p he pulled with Sarah.    I’m not a fan and I won’t defend his actions.

            • socon

              Save some of your snark for the weak RINO Republican Romney.  He’s the one who lost the election.

  • ZH100

    Excellent interview!!!

    Gov.Palin was very serious and she looked great.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    My Dear Friends in Sarah,

    Happy Saturday to you all!!

    Below are some highlights from and observations on her interview with Greta last night. I have added a few additional observations at the end.

    THE GRETA INTERVIEW

    Sarah on Greta:

    re Susan Rice: It’s a question of competency, not gender or skin color.

    This entire matter indicates a GENERAL lack of competency, and transparency, and truthfulness in the whole administration. To this very day there has been no apology or explanation to the American People re Benghazi.

    The obama administration lacks transparency and honesty.

    Four brave, innocent Americans were killed, and we still have no answers.

    They play politics instead of being STRAIGHT WITH THE PEOPLE.

    Jay Carney (White House Press Secretary) has been "obstinate and arrogant.."

    IF SARAH WERE A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA, she would be offended and would want to be a better reporter and investigator than these people have been.

    "SO WHAT?" she stirringly says to the idea that reporters "lose access" to the White House by seeking answers. Who needs "access" to LIES!!!–LIES–way to "tell it like it is," Governor!!

    Benghazi is just ONE EXAMPLE of the DECEPTION of this White House and of the mode of operation in DC.

    She refers to obama’s "fairytale utopia."

    It comes down to a NEED FOR LEADERSHIP in our country.

    Great, great interview.

    My observation: We need YOUR leadership, Governor …

    RUN, SARAH, RUN!!!

    I shall have more on the interview early tomorrow, guys.

    God bless!!

    (End of last night’s post)

    A FEW ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

    The Governor, IMHO, will appeal to a broad spectrum of the American People if (dare I say "WHEN"?!?) she runs for President for 2016.

    Her stand on Crony Capitalism, in particular, will resonate with large number of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and with millions of people who have simply dropped out of the political process altogether, due to disgust at the whole milieu and modus operandi of Washington, DC.

    And what did she do in this interview?

    Mirroring and reflecting the way in which she will reach out to all Americans …

    SHE WAS BIPARTISAN IN HER CENSURES!!

    Sure, she focused more on obama and his Democrats–after all, they are the Party in power.

    But her language for the Republicans was pretty strong too: They cannot go "wobbly" on us; they cannot be "wusses." She really called out the GOP-controlled House of Representatives. Her censure of Speaker Boehner may have been implicit, but it was indicting.

    The POLITICIANS of BOTH Parties stand for …what? They stand for the politicians, that is, for themselves, for their petty power, for their selfish little games …and America be damned!!

    SARAH OF ALASKA STANDS FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and for the Constitution; she loves all Americans.

    God bless you all always!!

    DEO VOLENTE, SARAH 2016!!!

    Good interview…………

    so good to see the Gov. tonight…….Run Sarah Run……..

  • Shane Ladd

    Gov. Sarah Palin spoke with passion & purpose, when Greta allowed her to talk, but Greta is more of a pompous windbag than Hannity; not as bad as O’Reilly, but, please…just let Sarah talk. We want to hear her.

  • wodiej

    It’s always good to hear from the Governor.  Lots of great points made by her and Greta.

    "Don’t be wusses."  lol

  • Quiet_Righty

    Really dark hair last night.
    OK, I got nuthin’ else right now. Too early in the morning.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carolyn-Dixon/100000062171632 Carolyn Dixon

       poor lighting last night.  no fire in the background to lighten the room. 

      • blueniner

        When Sarah is on those remotes she is at the mercy of those cameramen and light men, as opposed to when she is home in her own studio.

    • HuntingMoose

       no, after effects of all the good thanksgiving food. Must have been lots of turkey with some healthy moose mixed in.

      And the obvious effect of holidays with too much family around: no time for the run around the lake.

      • socon

        You got all that from that interview?  lol

        Sarah looked great–as usual.

  • bellagrazi16

    My favorite part was when Sarah pushed back in her chair. She was pissed! Greta had just said that the press would lose access to Obama if they ask the tough questions. Sarah’s son is fighting for his country in Afghanistan. She doesn’t want to hear that kind of nonsense. The press needs to do its job. Period. It’s unconscionable that they would give Obama a pass on this. Journalism is dead in the Obama era.

  • 2C714

    Adrienne, thanks for posting Gov. Palin’s interview w/Greta.

    She was spot on, with that fighting, warrior spirit!
    We’re with you, Gov. Palin!!!

  • TENCOLE

    Wow…….looks like Greta was wielding the nightstick instead of Palin in this interview. Palin seemed pretty laid back to me….and not calling out the "republican leadership" as Greta was prompting her to, kind of bothers me. *sigh*

    • Jean_A

      Why should she call out something that has not happen yet?

      The House has not given anything to Obama?

      The dems control the senate.
      I think she has to appear on Foxnews several times a month.   Gov. Palin could just be meeting her contract commitments before she says goodbye.

    • DocBarry1

      I do not agree that the Governor was not calling out the Republican leadership – she said directly the House Republicans were voted in to stop obama, don’t get wobbly, The House has control of the purse strings etc.

      She was calm but she said a lot of things – don’t be weak – she was great as far as I was concerned

      I thought Greta wanted to know how to compromise not to stand on your Principles as the Governor wants the Republicans to do

    • blueniner

      Sarah seemed entertained listening to Greta rant, Greta even took the last word, as she had the first word…….LOL..
