Despite Interest In 2012 Candidacy, Sarah Palin Can’t Say What She’d Do Differently For Economy Or National Security

Reported by Ellen - November 23, 2010 -

After announcing to the Hannity audience that she’s seriously considering running for president in 2012, Sarah Palin was asked by Sean Hannity what she’d do differently from Barack Obama for the economy and national security. Palin was full of right-wing attacks on Obama and platitudes about what she would not do. But she never named a single concrete thing she would do.

Hannity asked, “What would you do differently on economic issues? What would you do differently as it relates to national security and defense?”

Palin, in her condescending voice, said, “I certainly wouldn’t be coddling our enemies and poking in the eye those allies whom we need to remain a super power and I certainly, though, would never be questioning the desirability of being the foremost superpower in the world, as Barack Obama has done. When he made the statement… (Blah, blah, blah, “He has a different world view than many of us,” blah, blah, blah, “apologizing for America’s exceptionalism.”)

She continued, “When it comes to the economy, very basic free-market, enterprise principles and I know that they work, Sean… I understand how to make a payroll, how to balance a budget, those things that someone like Barack Obama and many in his administration have no clue about because they just don’t have that world experience.”
