Sarah Palin takes on O’Reilly and Christie: It is more brave to reign in government and reform when you have a surplus like I did.

Sarah Palin with David Asman:

And with all due respect to Governor Christie, you know he has no choice but to cut budgets because he’s broke, his state is broke. What courage really is, is in the face of having a surplus when you have opportunity to spend spend spend other people’s money, you still choose to reign in government to let the private sector soar. That’s real courage, and by the way that’s what I did as Governor here when I engaged in hiring freezes and reduced earmarks by 86% and vetoed the largest amounts in our state’s history. Despite having a surplus that’s real leadership and that’s courage.

But I do appreciate that Governor Christie is willing to face the reality in his state and that is that they are going bankrupt. So he has to cut, he has no choice.

Gov. Christie had that coming. He started making completely unprovoked backhanded compliments to her and that is a mistake. No one is going to get the GOP nomination without her blessing and that is just a simple reality. Blue collar Republicans love Sarah for one big reason; she says how she is going to govern and does it. There is a huge chunk of voters who are sick and tired of being lied to. Those who pay attention gravitate towards her, those who follow the elite media false narrative don’t.  I have never met a Sarah hater who can tell you much about her governing record. Sarah haters also have another problem, in that they don’t know Obama’s record either.

This was Sarah’s shot across Chris Christie’s bow. Her message seems clear, “Keep dissing me Chris and guess where the next shot goes”. Tammy Bruce believes that Christie is hoping to be a President Mitt Romney’s Attorney General. Tammy would not say that unless she had a source. Tammy’s comments can be seen in the video below.



Tammy is a brilliant former leftist, former President of NOW and today is a conservative gay woman. What is interesting, and here is a little note to those professors who both loved and hated me, Tammy Bruce as a philosopher has had more influence on me than perhaps anyone.

I like Gov. Christie’s communications style when he is direct and straight, not doing backhanded compliments. I like that he is tough on budgets and is taking on the teachers union that has broken the state and fought tooth and nail to preserve the status quo of failing public schools. But respectfully, where where you Gov. Christie, when Sarah Palin left Alaska to take Obama on and for almost a year was the only national figure doing so? Where where you when Sarah Palin was helping to form, solidify and fund raise for tax payer groups, Tea Party groups, and candidates? Where were you when she was the only major politician with a national presence fighting ObamaCare? Where were you when Sarah Palin took the slings and arrows while turning public opinion against Nancy Pelsosi and the policies of this White House?

2010 would not have happened without Sarah and you would not have been elected if she were not so effective in sounding the alarm and changing the national mood against the Democrat leadership’s far left agenda. Does anyone believe the elite media would have reported that the Democrats increased deficit spending over a factor of six without the coverage Palin got while she sounded the alarm?

So as far as I am concerned, and I know both of your staffs are going to see this on Google Alerts, this spat ends right here right now. There are bigger fish to fry and we do not need a circular firing squad. I likely speak for a great deal of pundits and bloggers when I tell you both to knock it off.

Hey Bill stop interrupting me ….. ouch
