Palin’s Evening News Interview

Posted by brightcoast on September 25, 2008

Here interview with Katie Couric only further confirms how fully unprepared Sarah Palin is to run for a national office. I mean what did she/her handlers think Katie was going to ask her? About what it’s like to be a mother in office? Seriously. With the economy in the shape that it is, and considering Palin is McCain’s running mate, you’d think she’d be able to at least get one intelligent answer out.

Couric: You’ve said, quote, “John McCain will reform the way Wall Street does business.” Other than supporting stricter regulations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac two years ago, can you give us any more example of his leading the charge for more oversight?

Palin: I think that the example that you just cited, with his warnings two years ago about Fannie and Freddie – that, that’s paramount. That’s more than a heck of a lot of other senators and representatives did for us.

Couric: But he’s been in Congress for 26 years. He’s been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.

Palin: He’s also known as the maverick though, taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he’s been talking about – the need to reform government.

Couric: But can you give me any other concrete examples? Because I know you’ve said Barack Obama is a lot of talk and no action. Can you give me any other examples in his 26 years of John McCain truly taking a stand on this?

Palin: I can give you examples of things that John McCain has done, that has shown his foresight, his pragmatism, and his leadership abilities. And that is what America needs today.

Couric: I’m just going to ask you one more time – not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation.

Palin: I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.

Wouldn’t it be nice to say in a job interview “I’ll try to find some and I’ll bring them to you.” Are you kidding me?

    She is infuriating. The arrogance a person must have to sit in that chair and not even bat an eyelash when confronted as to her serious gaps in knowledge. Seriously, is that what we want in a VP or a P? If she gets away with this, though, I blame the voters much more than the media. The media can only do so much. If we let her get away with this, it’s our fault. By the by, when will she finally engage reporters in an interview where she has to deal with real questions on the spot? I know if/when she does put herself in the position, people will immediately come out and say the reporters were being mean to her. If she can’t handle that, she shouldn’t be VP.
