This was Palin's first televised interview with Judge Jeanine. They had taped one previously, but since it was supposed to air on the night of the Tuscon tragedy, it was preempted. Unlike Bill O'Reilly, Judge Jeanine asks a question, and allows plenty of time for an answer without interrupting. What a refreshing change. They covered a lot of ground in 15 minutes. Topics included:
*The Wisconsin budget battle. She reiterated her support for Gov. Walker, and suggested that the absent lawmakers should be recalled.
*Federal budget battle. She expressed concern that some who ran for office under the tea party banner may be caving.
*Foreign aid. She's not in favor of continuing foreign aid to regimes that would seek to harm America. She believes we should continue foreign aid to Israel.
*Mexican President, Calderone's chastising of our immigration policies.
*The two airmen that were shot in Germany this week, and the Obama Administration's reluctance to call it a terrorist attack. State Department Spokesperson, P.J. Crowley went as far as to draw comparisons to Rep. Giffords being shot. Last time I checked, Loughner didn't yell "Allah Akbar" while pulling the trigger.
*Rising oil prices. This topic,of course, is right in her wheelhouse. Why would we support an energy policy that allows us to "be at the mercy of foreign regimes that would seek our demise."
*Libya. She reiterated her support for a no-fly zone over Libya. Some of you may recall that she was ridiculed by many for suggesting, almost from day one, that we consider a no-fly zone. Many have echoed her sentiments, including the Obama Administration, in the past week.
*Egypt and Iran were also discussed briefly.
