Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor for half-a-term as well as a former GOP vice presidential candidate, blasted people from her own Republican party who are not surging ahead to defund Obamacare, according to the Washington Times on Monday. In her own words, she told Republicans to “Woman up! Stand your ground and fight like a girl!”
In Palin’s latest rant, she told Republicans that they should gather around and support Sen. Ted Cruz who has been heading the defunding of Obamacare cause, and she told them that they need to stop criticizing his attempts to defund it. She says that America needs to open its eyes because when we fully realize Obamacare, we will thank God that principled leaders like Ted Cruz took a stand to stop it.
Palin’s opinion and support of Cruz came after some persons in the GOP have strongly condemned Cruz for having led the movement to get Obamacare defunding in the House and passed on to the Senate. Those critical of Cruz’ GOP efforts would rather see Obamacare move forward and prove inferior as it begins and quickly fails due to the many concerns that the program allegedly still has in its makeup. By letting Obamacare fail on its own, Cruz critics believe the GOP will not be hurt in the process.
To the philosophy of not defunding Obamacare because the GOP will be blamed by the media for the shutdown of the government, Palin says, “Here’s a little newsflash, GOP establishment. Whenever anything bad happens, the media blames Republicans for it. That’s not an excuse to roll over and play dead.”
According to CNN on Monday, Palin also commented on the prospect of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton becoming a 2016 presidential candidate by saying that she would be disappointed in the American electorate if Clinton were to become a serious candidate. Palin claims that Clinton would be the wrong person to become president after the Benghazi incident in which four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens died a year ago last Sept. 11 in the terrorist attack – which Clinton initially claimed was due to a viral video disrespecting Islamists. Palin said that anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered is not the person who should ever be considered as a commander in chief.
Palin’s comments about the GOP and Obamacare were first revealed in Breitbart, and her comments against a Clinton presidency were revealed on Fox News where she is working as a contributor again.
