Governor Palin emphasized her Reagan Conservative principles in this interview which lasted half of Sean Hannity’s January 14, 2010 show and is part of a series pertaining to Governor Palin signing on with Fox as a News Analyst. The central theme emphasized throughout each segment was small, limited federal government, and how large, overarching government hurts the economy and us as individuals. Governor Palin renewed her pledge to support conservative candidates in 2010 and beyond, even if her own party does not support them ala Doug Hoffman, NY District 23. She emphasized the importance of both parties returning to their core underpinning values.
When asked what she would say to Obama if she had the opportunity to talk with him, Governor Palin said that she would emphasize her peace through strength message and call for him to be more decisive — much less “hand-wringing and dithering.” She re-emphasized other core messages: low taxes and the dangers of Obama’s health care bill, which she said would mirror the British system which does have panels of bureaucrats deciding who is deserving of treatment.
Sean Hannity concluded by asking Governor Palin who she would profile if she had a show of her own. “What I would like to focus on for our children, I want to find real role models, I want to find those who should be our celebrities, those who we would be proud, Sean for our children to look up to and say ‘I want to be like that person.’ That person would maybe never be in a spotlight, but they work hard to put food on the table for their family. They’re selfless. They’re helping others, they’re compassionate, they have a strong, strong work ethic. I want to find those people across America, I want to profile them and I want to say, ‘kids you can be like that person, because this is America.’” Hannity responded, “so, in other words you would do profiles on great Americans we would never hear about every day.”
“Absolutely, absolutely!” she said.
“Real American Idols,” were Governor Palin’s concluding words.
