Former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, eagerly declared GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney the winner of Wednesday’s presidential debate. Palin, who is arguably the primary reason for John McCain’s failure to win the presidential election in 2008, was interviewed on the Fox Business Network to provide her feedback about the debate.
“It was a struggle to watch some parts of this, as you considered President Obama with his lack of enthusiasm for his own policies and his lack of conviction in trying to articulate why is it he believes that government will make you healthy, wealthy and wise and happy when the vast majority of Americans know that government isn’t the answer,” Palin said. “I almost felt sorry for him in his role as president trying to explain why we need to repeat four more years of failed policies. I thought this was Romney’s night. Romney did very well and he was able to articulate well why it is that someone with great business experience is what we need to turn this economy around.”
Palin also reminisced on her own experience with the debate circuit in 2008, admitting that she doesn’t understand the behind-the-scenes process of the function. “You know, I had no idea four years ago what was going on behind the scenes or in headquarters,” she admitted. “In fact, we used to have a running joke, the JV squad, those of us on the vice presidential side of the ticket. We used to talk about where is this mysterious headquarters and what are they doing to this campaign. So I didn’t know back then how it worked, I still don’t know this inside baseball stuff.”
Palin also admitted that both candidates failed to adequately articulate “the gravity of the situation,” but that Romney had emerged the clear victor despite his shortcomings.
