'Politically Wrong!' Sarah Palin Blasts Obama Administration
Sarah Palin is sounding off on the Obama administration's refusal to describe the attacks in France as the work of "Islamic terrorists."
Palin told INSIDE EDITION's Deborah Norville, "Try to be so politically correct, and yet, they're so politically wrong on just about everything."
On MSBNC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said, "An overwhelming majority of Americans...are confused why he doesn't Islamic extremism, Islamic [terrorism]. I'm confused."
Palin said, "It is, in a sense, being a chicken. As was manifest when we didn't have a high-ranking official go over and unify with other world leaders and say, 'No, this Islamic fundamentalism that is resulting in such terror across our globe, we're not going to have that in our land."
Palin is promoting the second season of her Sportman Channel show, Amazing America With Sarah Palin, which follows her on adventures that include bow hunting with rocker Ted Nugent.
"The homes in America who have really been craving and deserving some good news about our country, wanting to know about those who are overcomers, and those who can encourage and inspire and really give us true hope in this country so we don't give up on America," said Palin.
Which led us to ask, who does she think her fellow republicans will nominate for president in 2016.
Norville said, "Mitt Romney is suggesting that he might be willing to throw his hat in the ring. He's had two shots at the apple. Should he go for a third?"
"We need new energy. We need new blood. We need new ideas," said Palin.
"You don't see any women. Where are the republican women when it comes to running for the White House?" asked Norville.
Palin applauded, saying, "You're right. You're absolutely right. And, you know, I don't give a flying flip about what gender the person will be. I want the absolute best that America deserves. The best in terms of leadership, getting this country on the right track. Yeah, it would be nice and it will be nice to see women jump into the ring."
Palin had this to say about the North Korean cyber terrorists: "Well, we better take it dog-gone seriously, shouldn't we? Some folks like Newt Gingrich, he's been warning about cyber security for a decade or more and a lot of people thought that he was, you know, just crazy talking about that stuff. He was before his time."
Palin was in the news earlier this month when animal rights activists criticized her for letting her son, Trig, who has Down syndrome, step on the family dog so he could help with the dishes.
Norville asked, "Talk to me about having a boy who has special needs."
"I will not get all blubbery on you, but that is a great question. That whole episode a week or so ago was perplexing and really, it was idiotic that it turned out the way it did. He physically met that goal that day, trying to reach the sink. That was on New Year's Day. I thought, 'Hey, what an awesome opportunity to share with America that we all face challenges. We all have obstacles and stumbling blocks. Well, you know what? Do what Trip just did. He turned that stumbling block into a stepping stone."
