Palin: Voters Must Break Addiction to Obama 'Hope-ium'

Tuesday, 28 Aug 2012 10:59 AM

By Greg McDonald

Sarah Palin says Americans need to dump “the status quo” presidency of Barack Obama in order to free themselves from the “hope-ium” he’s been peddling since his 2008 campaign.
“Some of us had him pegged four years ago,” the former Alaska governor told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday. “Remember when he promised to fundamentally transform America? We knew right then during the campaign that we were in for a world of hurt under Obama’s failed, liberal, socialist policies and ideas that he would really ram down our throats.”

But the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee told Hannity some folks just seem to be addicted to Obama’s brand of government and are unwilling to give up on him even when it seems obvious they should.

“We have opportunity to take it back, to turn things around,” Palin said. “And these people who still have that addiction to the hope-ium that he had promised — that hope-y, change-y stuff that was really bogus four years ago — well, they have about 71 days to open up their eyes and realize the path that he has put us on. It’s a path toward insolvency, it’s a path toward fewer freedoms, and really orchestrated chaos and bankruptcy.”

Palin, who has said she does not plan to attend the Republican convention in Tampa this week, spoke to Hannity from Arizona, where she was campaigning for Kirk Adams, a GOP state legislator now running for Congress.
Rumors floated at the convention suggested Palin might make a surprise visit to Tampa later in the week. But Palin gave no indication of plans for anything except making more campaign appearances on behalf of what she called "down ballot" Republican candidates running for Congress.
“These are important races,” she told Hannity. “Because . . . it doesn’t matter really who we’re going to be replacing the party in power with if we don’t really shake things up in Washington, D.C., and put government back on the side of the people.
“That’s what we're doing here in Arizona is campaigning for those who promised to do exactly that,” added Palin.
