VAN SUSTEREN: Well, that's certainly peculiar that he said say that because my colleague, Catherine Herridge, saw an August 16th classified cable in which there were complaints that there were 10 al Qaeda training camps in the area of Benghazi. So it's a little bit hard to say that al Qaeda is on the run at that point.
But let me ask you about something else, Governor. Time magazine announcing its Person of the Year. Once again, it's President Obama. Now, Time magazine says it is for the time (ph) the president's success in, quote, "forging a new majority to create a more perfect union."
Governor Palin, your thoughts on that?
PALIN: Oh, the path towards a more perfect union is our Constitution. And I think that we have seen examples of our president not necessarily following the Constitution, in fact, wanting to change the Constitution because he sees it as a charter of negatives.
And he's made statements in the past about his view of our Constitution, and that's -- you know, following it is a blueprint towards a more perfect union.
But Time magazine, you know, I think there's some irrelevancy there, to tell you the truth. I mean, consider their list of the most influential people in the country and in the world, some who have made that list -- yours truly! That ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence that we should give Time magazine and their list of people.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well, that's an interesting concept. But you know, it's funny, you know, in looking at the -- you know, at the president's choice -- he was chosen before because, you know, when he was first elected. But you know, the thing that strikes me is that -- I can't -- you know, it's Time magazine that says this sort of goofy stuff about, like, you know, whatever -- whatever their criteria is for seeking amid great adversity to create a more perfect union -- I don't know what that means, I don't know. But that's Time magazine. That isn't the president. The president didn't pick those words. That's Time magazine. So I put the -- I put the -- I point my finger at Time magazine when it gets a little silly. How about you?
PALIN: Oh, I think that those are some silly words chosen to describe Barack Obama. When I first heard that, first thing that popped into my mind was, What the heck has he done? Really, what has he done except drive us over a fiscal cliff, which we are over, and now it's time to feel the thud at the bottom of that cliff. It's just now a matter of degree of how hard we're going to hit bottom.
But you know, other than that, really, what has he done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union? For the life of me, I don't know, Greta!
