Sarah Palin Defends Ron Paul: He’s The Only One ‘Doing Something About Reining In Gov’t Growth’

Last night, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin spoke with Fox Business Network’s John Stossel about how GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul “hit the nail on the head” when he warned Barack Obama to be careful when interjecting us in other countries’ business.

Palin did note that, for all that she supports Paul on, his almost “isolationist” stance on international relations gives her pause. That said, on the domestic front, “he’s the only one who’s been so adamantly passionate about doing something about the suffocating debt, about doing something about reining in government growth and actually slashing budgets.”

She also came to Newt Gingrich‘s defense, saying that he, like Paul, has been “vilified.” The establishment, she said, has been “trying to crucify this man and rewrite history.”

She didn’t appreciate Peggy Noonan‘s recent characterization of Gingrich as a “little attack muffin,” to say the least.
