Governor Palin Speaks with Fox News' Megyn Kelly

Governor Palin spoke with Fox News' Megyn Kelly this afternoon.

Palin on the President Obama’s plan new economic plan he will lay out after his vacation to Martha’s Vineyard:

“We can predict more of the same and the same for the president is failed economic policies… based on his past record to spend more, and increase taxes in order to pay for it.”

Palin on government spending:

“He [Obama] is of the mind set that incurring more debt will get us out of debt, very counterproductive… use common sense. We need to tighten our belts… reform entitlements—it will be a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people but that’s what we are going to have to do to get the debt and deficit under control… our president does not understand that. [Obama’s] mindset… to spend more and cross our fingers that we are going to be able to surface from the economic problems.”

Palin on President Obama’s vacation to Martha’s Vineyard:

“He’s very very tone deaf. I can’t believe after 3 days in the heartland he didn’t hear those things that I hear when I’m in the heartland... come on let’s buckle down and be serious about getting the country back on the right track, lets become solvent again.”

Palin predicts Obama's 10 day vacation will be cut short:

"I wouldn’t [go on vacation], especially not to Martha’s Vineyard. I fear that what our president is gonna do is keep his head in sand and ignore what the American public is saying… in a few days his advisers will tell him he needs to get back to White House and he needs to start working on a bi-partisan measure with congress and start plugging in these solutions.”

Palin on the Rick Perry vs. Obama exchange:

“More power to Perry calling like he sees it… and the president did elevate Perry… that rascal rhetoric he uses in Texas and the president took issue to it… just evidence of the president’s arrogance to tell presidential candidates what to say, what not to say. I wish President Obama would stay focused on what really matters. Just do what makes sense to get economy back on the right track.”

Palin on the Newsweek cover of Michelle Bachmann:

“Bottom line every candidate will be vetted now even more so than ever because we learned a lesson electing the president who was not vetted by mainstream media. Basically, we are asking now, what did we get out of it? We got an inexperienced president who made a lot of promises—glittery generalities, promised utopia for country and look where we are now… We need someone with executive experience, someone who has gone through the fire someone who the American public knows their background and associations, knows what has shaped them and where that person is coming from in order to apply policies that affect our daily lives.”

Palin on Gloria Steinem’s comments:

“I think Gloria had had her day and her rhetoric, its over, its very passé and people like Bachmann and me and millions other women, we work inside and outside the home…  we run businesses, we run for office, we put others before self, we desire to serve something greater than self in order to make the world a better place. We ARE the women’s movement; we illustrate equality and empowerment of other women.”

Palin on being a possible 2012 presidential candidate:

“I am still considering [a run for the presidency] and I do want to help change the world for the better place, along with millions of other conscientious Americans who know America deserves better than what we are getting from the political bubble in Washington DC.”
