Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” program Tuesday night just a few days after delivering a well-received keynote address at the Right Online conference. The grassroots conservative icon and host Sean Hannity discussed Obama’s illegal immigration ploy, why she didn’t mention Gov. Romney in Las Vegas, her support for her party’s presidential nominee, Eric Holder in hot water, and what advice she would give to Romney’s campaign:
Gov. Palin said the “Obamnesty” power grab by the president was “par for the course” for Obama, who has shown a pattern of implementing by executive fiat measures which he has failed to get Congress to enact. She pointed out that Obama was a lecturer in law school, not a professor, and said that the students in his course “got ripped off” because Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that he doesn’t understand constitutional law.
The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate explained that neither she nor any other speaker at Right Online mentioned Mitt Romney because it is not allowed under the Federal Election Commission rules that regulate organizations such as Americans For Prosperity, the group that sponsored the conference. The former governor left no doubt that she’s supporting Romney in the general election, and she said that “if that vote were held today,” she will vote for him “in a heartbeat” over Obama. Gov. Palin added a reminder that her position has been consistent throughout this election cycle. She has always said that she will support the GOP presidential nominee, no matter who it would be, and she’s always been for “Anybody But Obama.”
Sarah Palin characterized Attorney General Eric Holder’s stonewalling as “absolutely disgraceful” and criticized the “lapdogs in media” who are too “emotionally invested” in Obama to cover him in a fair and balanced manner. Asked what advice she would give to Romney, Gov. Palin said that his campaign needs to be “very, very aggressive” and go after Obama’s record, education and associations. The McCain-Palin campaign failed to do this, she lamented, but did not blame Sen. McCain for it, implying that the campaign’s management was responsible.
