On "Justice With Judge Jeanine" Saturday, Sarah Palin said the U.S. was "flirting with disaster under President Obama's very clouded, very murky" foreign policy as applied to Israel. Saying the president flip-flopped on the issue of a divided Jerusalem, she warned that the U.S. was "on the wrong side of history if we continue to go down this road."
The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate called Obama "our temporary leader" and said her goal was to make sure the president was not reelected in 2012. "Until President Obama is replaced by a president who understands the importance of treating our friends right and being strong against our enemies," she pointed out, "it's 'we the people' who have to rise up and make sure Israel knows they have friends here.
She also said it is wrong for the Obama administration to forgive Egypt her $1 billion debt to the US, and she called for an investigation into the ObamaCare waivers. Asked by Judge Pirro her opinion about Herman Cain, Gov. Palin said she liked the former Pillsbury and Godfather's Pizza executive and praised his business experience. She said she was "looking forward to shaking his hand and saying glad he's in the fray." the former Alaska governor said there was plenty of time for Newt Gingrich to recover from his missteps during the first week of his campaign, but worried that the former House Speaker now favors government health care mandates: "Personally, I don't like government telling me or anybody else what to do, what to purchase. I don't like that violation of the Commerce Clause."
Gov. Palin said that the media won't be able to dissuade her from throwing her hat into the presidential race, but that the effect of the media's scrutiny on her family was the only factor that could keep her from running in 2012.
