Newsmax Webcast Oct 12th 1pm:
Sign-up at "Make America Great Again"
Some of the many highlights of the extended Reagan-Palin interview being aired Tuesday:
When Americans elected Barack Obama as president, they expected the economy and jobs to be his top priority. Instead, Palin tells Newsmax, the administration decided, "despite the will of the people being against Obamacare, we're going to shove this down your throat anyway."
Palin talks about being mocked for her warnings about what Obamacare would bring, including so-called “death panels.” She tells Newsmax: "I was about laughed out of town for bringing to light what I called death panels because there's going to be faceless bureaucrats who will based on cost analysis and some subjective ideas — somebody's productivity in life — somebody is going to call the shots to whether your loved one will be able to receive healthcare or not: to me, death panels. I call it like I saw it and people didn't like it."
She predicts that President Obama will continue favoring big-government nostrums, and she describes him as "quite naïve" and "stubborn." In one cryptic reference, she suggests that others may control Obama, stating that whoever “is pulling his strings" will not let the president adopt free-market solutions that would solve the nation's economic problems.
Palin contends that Obama is "slamming us to the mat" economically by opposing the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts. The nation "will be slammed with the highest tax increase in our history" unless the tax cuts are extended, she says.
The best-selling author and Fox News commentator says she wants to "call out" Obama for his conduct of military operations in the Middle East: "I want to say, 'You're going to send our troops there in the danger zone, you better have a darn good reason why they're going, and you better be committed to victory.'"
Allowing Islamic-oriented laws in U.S. communities would be "the downfall of America," Palin says, adding that Americans "will not put up with any hint of Shariah law being any sort of law of the land."
In greater detail than ever before, Palin talks about what factors might persuade her to run for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. She even describes how a Palin presidency might look.
