Sarah Palin on the Laura Ingraham Show Responds To George and Barbara Bush, Calls Them 'Blue Bloods'
From today's Laura Ingraham program
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) denounced the Bush family as "blue bloods" in an interview posted Wednesday and remarked that a mentality like theirs helped to cause the economic downturn.Barbara Bush saying 'I think she should stay in Alaska' is definitely a little over the top for a interview on LKL, she should not have said it. However, it should not come as a bombshell that they are not supporting Palin, their support of Romney comes from a long friendship between the Bushes and Mitt Romney. Also, I think if Romney is the nominee in 2012, Jeb Bush will be on his short list for Vice President
Her comment came in response to a statement made by former first lady Barbara Bush during an interview with CNN's Larry King earlier this week. Asked for her take on Palin, Bush told King: "I think she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there."
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham followed up with Palin, asking if she thought Bush's comment had been planned ahead of time. Palin had this to say:
"I don't want to sort of concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing because I think the majority of Americans don't want to put up with the blue bloods — and I say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes — but the blue bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition to pick and choose the winners."
