Palin’s One Nation Tour Rolls into New England

Friday, 03 Jun 2011 10:27 AM

Sarah Palin took in the historic sites in Boston Thursday morning, ahead of Mitt Romney’s announcement of his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in New Hampshire.

While Palin insisted that she was not trying to steal any thunder from the former Massachusetts governor on his big day, she criticized Romney’s universal health care law, according to The Boston Herald.

“In my opinion, any mandate coming from government is not a good thing,” Palin told reporters during a visit to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. The law will be one of the reasons that it “will be a big challenge” for Romney to appeal to Tea Party supporters.

“It’s tough for a lot of us independent Americans to accept [the mandate] because we have great faith in the private sector and our own families and our own business men and women making decisions for ourselves, not any level of government telling us what to do,” said the former Alaska governor and Tea Party favorite.

Palin made two stops in Seabrook, New Hampshire later on Thursday, visiting a fishing cooperative and an old-fashioned clambake at the home of one her aide’s family members, according to The New Hampshire Union Leader.

Palin discussed the negative impact of federally instituted quotas with a local fisherman.

The clambake was more of an intimate affair with guests including former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, members of the conservative group “We the People” and other GOP party insiders.

But Palin did manage to squeeze in a small news conference outside the clambake where she sounded very much like a presidential candidate.

“There is not a need to transform our country, there is a need to revive what’s good about our country,” she said.

This nation was built on two principles, Palin said, the idea that entrepreneurship should be allowed to flourish and the “responsible exploitation of natural resources.”

Palin also said she would be involved in the next presidential campaign, though not necessarily as a candidate.
