This is yet another quick hit job interview from Sarah Palin, spitting venom at President Obama while he struggles to remember if she even exists anymore.
However the generic token brunette chick (Hired to demonstrate that Fox doesn't discriminate against those who are not of the Aryan race) asked a very leading question that I found ridiculous but suggestive that Palin is again trying to reinvent her personae. (Now she is a sympathetic shoulder for the "average" American to cry on about their economic problems, and how much they blame them on this President.)
Generic brunette: "I know that you speak to a lot of people, you know, across the board every month, and people who are really suffering and hurting and looking for leadership in this nation and that's something you're really concerned about. Can you tell me what you're hearing from the voters out there when it comes to the question of leadership?"
Okay first off if the interviewer is going to frame the question in such a way that it leaves no doubt as to what Fox wants as a response, she just might as well just go ahead and answer it herself.
And second just WHO in the hell does this lady think Palin is speaking to "across the board?" Palin is locked in her compound most of the time, and when she leaves she is surrounded by sycophants and family members. I would suggest that the ONLY information she has on how people are feeling in this country is through the filter of Fox News, tabloid magazines, and the various liberal and conservative blogs she visits to make sure people are still talking about her.
So do you think she had an answer? Well of course she did. The answer arrived in her email box HOURS before the question left generic brunette lady's lips.
"Well it's not just the hard core conservatives, fiscal conservatives in the Republican party, but it's many, many independents and just..uh..good patriotic Democrats who are understanding that President Obama's policies are failing this country. When you have twenty three million Americans underemployed, and unemployed, and millions more on food stamps and those..uh..having to rely on government, or feeling invited to rely on government instead of their own work ethic in order to survive. So many American are understanding that we DO need a choice come November. Do we need to continue down this..downward trajectory in our economy, based on President Obama's felled (sic)policies, that are kind of modeled after felled (sic) Socialist nations, or can we go another direction, and can we allow the private sector to grow and thrive? That's what I'm hearing from Americans (ie family members and employees) is that great concern.
Apparently Palin did not read her script well enough and forgot the "Obama slam du jour" about Obama's supposed, taken out of context, gaffe in which he stated that "the private sector was doing fine." So the generic Fox brunette bimbo reminded Palin about it.
Here is her answer: "Oh, absolutely out of whack comment. But very indicative of his thinking about what it's going to take even to get our economy back on the right track. If he truly believes, until somebody dinged him and said 'get back on there..on..in front of the camera and explain yourself a bit better' and gave him some talking points. But for him to truly believe that the private sector is doing okay, in this time of economic woes is quite indicative of he being out of touch with what the normal working man and woman is feeling today in America."
I swear that everything Palin said in that last paragraph is the result of her projecting her own out touch lifestyle onto the President. Does anybody REALLY believe that independents and "patriotic" Democrats are reaching out to Sarah Palin?
Of course not, yet this imbecile knows she is talking to the elderly shut ins who STILL believe that Fox News actually provides "news."
Here is my answer to Palin's contention that President Obama's policies have "felled."
That does not look like a failure to me, but just imagine how much better it could have been if the President was not working with a bunch of sabotaging assholes from the Republican party, and a cable entertainment channel, passing itself off as a news outlet, telling the stupidest Americans still drawing breath that he was an America hating, Socialist, Muslim, who was born in Kenya and shipped to America to destroy the country?
So in closing just let me say, Fuck you Sarah Palin!
