MUST WATCH: Sarah Palin Blasts McCain, Those who ‘Wave that White Flag’ in Obamacare Fight

Posted 09.25.13 by Greg Campbell, TPNN Political Analyst

In an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Tuesday, Sarah Palin, the former Vice Presidential candidate who ran with Senator John McCain in 2008, spoke about Senator Ted Cruz’ Obamacare filibuster and the harsh criticism Cruz has received as a result of his hardline stance.

As Palin spoke with Cavuto, Cruz stood on the Senate floor, railing against Obamacare, the healthcare overhaul that threatens massive financial instability for America.

Some members of the Republican Party, including Palin’s former running Mate, John McCain, has been critical of their colleague, claiming that the fight to defund Obamacare is a fool’s errand. Palin thinks otherwise.

When asked specifically by Cavuto about Sen. McCain’s position on Cruz’ filibuster, Palin replied,

“I think anyone who wants to wave that white flag right now in this battle for economic liberty in America is forgetting what America was built upon. America was built upon those who were willing to say, politically speaking, ‘Hey, I’m going to do what’s right for freedom, for liberty and if I die, I die.’ That’s what Senator Ted Cruz is doing right now.”

Cavuto later asked Palin if she was surprised to find that mainstream Republicans were turning on Sen. Cruz as he stood on principle to call for the defunding of Obamacare. In a shocked tone, Palin retorted,

“Am I surprised that those within the GOP establishment, that machine, would turn on one of their own? Who has a record and a reputation for standing up strong on the planks and the platforms of freedom and capitalism and economic equality… Am I surprised that RINOs would turn on one who would stand strong on those planks? No, because many of us have lived through that; we’ve come out stronger.”

Palin then targeted for harsh criticism the moderate GOP strategists that have been undermining conservative politics, specifically McCain’s 2008 strategist, Steve Schmidt.

The GOP is divided. As Americans ache to get back on track, the Party of limited government is firmly divided between conservatives and those who might call themselves Republicans, but behave more like centrist Democrats.
