Sarah Palin says "enough is enough" with the lies being told about Newt Gingrich and his relationship with Ronald Reagan.
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate told Fox News' Sean Hannity that she is speaking out in favor of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich because of what she sees as "the politics of personal destruction" — lies that distort Gingrich's history with Reagan.
"When I saw that rewritten false narrative, I thought 'enough is enough,'" Palin said, adding that Gingrich was a part of the Reagan revolution and learned a great deal from those experiences. The barrage of attacks prompted her to begin speaking out over the weekend in support of Gingrich.
"Those experiences shaped Newt's ideas, on welfrare reform, economic policies" she said.
She has not endorsed any of the GOP hopefuls.
Asked by Hannity to provide the positivies she sees in the GOP contenders, Palin said Gingrich has a lot energy and the will to challenge the status quo; Mitt Romney is to be respected for his business experience and is "a good family man;" Rick Santorum is a "bold conservative" who provided a great benefit to the debates with his ideas; and Ron Paul is to be commended for his "fiscal sanity" and his views on austerity measures.
