Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Second term for Obama ‘catastrophic’
Posted on 11/07/2012 8:09:32 AM PST by Hojczyk
Even before a winner was declared in the presidential contest, Sarah Palin sounded a pessimistic note on Tuesday night, saying that a second term for President Barack Obama will mean a catastrophic blow to the economy.
Unfortunately, we know what we will get with four more years of President Obama, the former GOP vice presidential nominee told Fox Newss Greta Van Susteren. This really is a catastrophic set-back to our economy and to any opportunity that we would have for Supreme Court justices to be appointed who would be strict adherents to the traditional interpretation of what our Constitution says.
Palin added that she hoped things can turn around before the end of the night.
Im crossing my fingers, Greta, and hoping things can turn around in the remaining hours of the evening, she said, striking a resigned tone.
Later in the interview, Palin ran through a litany of problems that, she suggested, are associated with Obama and expressed disbelief that voters would go down that path.
I just cannot believe, though, that the majority of Americans would believe that incurring more debt is good for our economy, for our childrens futures, for job creators, she said. I cannot believe that the majority of Americans would believe its OK not to follow the Constitution and not have a budget. And I cant believe the majority of Americans say its OK to rely on foreign sources of energy instead of drilling and mining our own resources.
Its a perplexing time for many of us right now, if things continue in this trend that we have seen earlier tonight, she added.

I’ve got to say I’m more than a little annoyed at SP right at the moment. I believe she very easily could’ve broken through the media noise and become a rallying point, and preventing the very thing she is now decrying.
ahhh it’s just a title, you know.
I know God has a plan, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I’m just trying to brainstorm on how my family can protect ourselves over the next four years.
Right now I just feel like crying. The “takers” are now a majority and I just have to wonder if this country will ever turn around. I just wish I could see a silver lining in all this, I just can’t.
Let’s hope she continues to be the voice of the resistance for the next four years.
I like Sarah, but I disagree that her voice would have made a difference. She cannot reach the people who need to be reached. Her name is worse than Dubya’s for making half of the country start foaming at the mouth.
I’m thinking the same way. I’m trying to prepare for what I believe will be an economic collapse.
...then I remember that for those on the public dole, these are all “somebody else’s” problems.
Yep and they got their Obama Phones!
SP is radioactive, and will remain so for the rest of her days.
She’s a pundit with a cute arse. Nothing more.
I feel the worst for my kids, aged 18 and 15. I’m feeling pretty sick this morning.
I haven’t lost faith in this country, or in God.
I prayed frequently every day for the Dems to lose. But, remember “God works in wondrous ways.”
Naturally, I don’t know what God has planned, but don’t give up hope.
I agree, even the mention of her daughters name on a silly dancing show is enough to make them go wonkers.
Yet another brand that has successfully been demonized by the left. That and the GOP brand as a whole.
My theory is that she acquiesced to the requests/demands of the GOP to distance herself from the race, because of the perception (true or false) of her as "damaged goods".
I'd like to at least see her getting back to the "shadow president" role she played in 2009 and 2010, penning articles attacking Obama's policies and laying out alternatives, and doing so in layman's terms. Regardless of whether or not she intends to run herself, this type of work is invaluable.
She kinda made me sick last night, smiling while she said this, as though her “happy pundit demeanor” were more important than how depressed every one of her fans was feeling. We were in the depths of despair and though she said she was praying for a turnaround she was chipper and smiling, probably required by her well paying boss Fox, which just reminded me that she took The Money and not what was behind door number 2. Grrrr.
Sarah's just a private citizen now, one who happens to be on the FOX payroll but a private citizen nonetheless - thanks to the likes of Nicolle Wallace and other backstabbers in the Republican establishment.
Here's the best I can do for you: When the debt-laden economy finally crashes in the next four years, Obama will get the blame for it, not the GOP.
THE MSM won't blame Obama, of course, but the average person on the street will, much like the average person blamed Herbert Hoover.
Wonder what Israel is thinking this morning?
I’m just angry.
I’m angry with the GOP and the leadership.
I’m angry with John Roberts.
I’m angry with the media, including FOX.
I’m so depressed.
I had another thought... what will happen with Iran now? Obama will do nothing to help Israel, they’re all on their own now. So sad.
God bless the U.S. and Israel.
Yet another brand that has successfully been demonized by the left. That and the GOP brand as a whole.
Alinsky’s book has made all the difference. The number one motivation for Americans is to avoid being mocked. Imagine what would happen socially to a lib who admitted that Sarah Palin or rush Limbaugh or even milquetoast Romney was making sense. Just imagine how their friends and coworkers would laugh at them.
Sage advice, kitkat.
Look it is what it is. My mother shared some advise with me this morning she said “life sucks”. She said when Goldwater lost she cried for a week. Nothing we can do now so I will just keep doing what I think is right for my kids to see and set a good example.
THE MSM won't blame Obama, of course, but the average person on the street will, much like the average person blamed Herbert Hoover."
Do you think so? I don't. According to exit polls, a pretty sizeable majority of voters still blame Bush for the economy. If the fools believe that after four years, they're stupid enough to extend it for another four.
The Republican Establishment and the left, as Frogjerk indicated above, undid Sarah. All that matters is that how the majority perceive her. We may enjoy listening to her, but she isn’t going to help us win over anyone.
Yes, and easily done with the help of the GOP its own self, particularly idiots like Akin and Mourdock, although they're far from alone.
Batten everything down if it isn't already too late. Things start getting serious as soon as Barry gets back from his post-Inaugural vacation.
(Which begs the question: Two inaugurations, one public and one private with Chief Justice Roberts like last time, or only one?)
You sure about that? After what happened last night I'm not sure most people have plain ole good common sense anymore.
I think maybe the “dumbing down” of America has finally succeeded.
It’s always darkest before the dawn.
Pray, pray, pray.
The GOP would rather lose than to give up any control to the TEA party.
Good advice. Glad they aren’t here right now to see me so depressed. One away at college and other at high school so I have to snap out of it before 3:00 p.m.

Thanks, I’m trying really hard this morning.
I agree. More kids today think they will be famous by getting on a reality show.
40% of babies born are now to unwed teenaged mothers.
I forsee WWIII or a civil war but maybe, like WWII that is what it will take to make our country great again
well they lost. Meaning, we won, right along with Zero. So it’s time to mobilize the TEA Party to fill the vacuum with the best teflon candidates we can find, wherever we may discover them. Before we get another good-old-boy-system-picked-years-in-advance-RINO candidate forced on us.
we didn't get this done....
God's plan is for us to be happy,prosperous...
we didn't get it done....IMO there was outright vote fraud....but still, we didn't protect our voting process...
I think that we have to target the schools and the media and Unions, more so than the candidates on the left.. could we have been picking the wrong target?
realize it’s a ridiculous thought... but we are only trying get rid of their hand picked messengers.
we gave to get down in the dirt to win, and win against them with any method short of being unlawful.
Yep, the sheeple are easy to fool.
I LOVED her at one time....but not so much anymore....she should have been using these years to polish her speech, to learn Spanish, to deepen her knowledge...
WW with a draft picking off all these shallow young people and their kardashians and their nose rings will be a wakeup call...so will pulling out mommmy and daddy’s money when it all goes up kaboom financially...
Yes they will, at some time or other in the "reeducation camp", before becoming a lampshade and soap.
Sarah had no choice, considering the level of Lawfare being waged against her and her family.
Obama = Economic Suicide
The economy may actually not be the worst of the next 4 years. Obama has given the green light to the Russian Bear and God knows who else.
Expect the Russian Bear to complete its Invasion of Georgia (not the peach state) before the winter Olympics in 2014.
Economic collapse is still far worse than Russia invading Georgia. Although they will most likely both occur around the same time.
Today, if Sarah was running for office I would support her and vote for her. She has more moxie/wisdom in her little finger than all our Senators put together. They have lost respect and credence. Very ineffective.
She is smart, unafraid of the critics, has experience with the ‘good ole boys’ and how they operate, and she loves America and freedom. Maybe we can draft her.
Americans have become too politically correct to do anything for regaining executive positions; or being effective in governing.
IF WE DO NOT WANT TO DISSOLVE INTO A THIRD WORLD POOR NATION ...
WE MUST NOT GIVE UP, BUT RATHER IT IS TIME TO EDUCATE THE POPULACE. AT EVERY LEVEL, THE ARMED FORCES, THE SCHOOLS,THE MONETARY SYSTEM THE CONSTITUATIONAL LAWS AND BILL OF RIGHTS. THE MAJORITY OF OUR CITIZENS DO NOT UNDERSTAND HISTORY, or CURRENT HAPPENINGS IN EUROPE AND OTHER STRUGGLING NATIONS
IT TAKES DEDICATION AND SINCERE FAITH IN GOD ALMIGHTY, TO KNOW OUR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, AND REGULATIONS.
THE UNITED NATIONS AND AGENDA 21, IS FURTHER LOSS OF AMERICAN FREEDOM.
IT IS INDEED CATASTROPHIC!!!
WE MUST DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND AND SAY NO MORE.
WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH AMERICA?
IS THERE ANOTHER WAY? TO SAVE AMERICA AS WE HAVE KNOW IT? sorry for the caps!
[ She(palin) kinda made me sick last night, smiling while she said this ]
THEN, it must have really made you want to “spew” when Megyn Kelly and Baier seemed almost “giddy” that Barry Half-White WON?...all smiles and giggles..
She is nothing but an attractive woman with some good viewpoints, she is not a political leader.
