Onetime Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin apologized for calling some GOP lawmakers “wusses” in their negotiations with Democrats regarding the “fiscal cliff.”
“Well, I guess I shouldn’t call politicians names, so I apologize for calling the wobbly ones 'wusses,' ” the former Alaska governor told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. “Because that distracts from the point that has to be made, and the point is that we are a bankrupt country."...
...Palin on Monday said Republicans needed to return to their fiscally conservative roots, and sounded her familiar refrain of calling Obama a socialist — but this time warned that communism might be in the U.S.’s future.
“So I say, Republicans, go back to what the planks in your platform represent,” she continued on Monday. “It represents reining in government, putting back the power and the responsibility in the individual, not in the state, not in government. Again, that gets us towards socialism. What goes beyond socialism ... is communism. I know I’m going to get slammed for speaking so bluntly about what’s going on here, but that’s exactly what is going on.”
Palin also said Republicans should not cede power to the White House to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling.
“A very scary proposal was recently revealed by Geithner essentially saying, ‘Let the president have free rein on raising the debt ceiling to whatever level he wants it.’ That’s a very scary thought, because Barack Obama is a socialist.”
