Sarah Palin‘s strong reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act continued on Friday night, when she told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that Nancy Pelosi was a “dingbat” and calling President Barack Obama a “tool.”
Hannity played a clip on his show of Pelosi “gleefully reacting,” as he called it, to the Supreme Court’s decision. He launched into a diatribe about how Obamacare is nothing but a tax increase, because it was upheld on Congress’ authority to levy taxes.
Hannity then asked Palin how Congress and Mitt Romney’s campaign should politically approach the Supreme Court’s decision. But Palin didn’t let Pelosi’s comment go untouched.
“First off, Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat,” Palin said. “She is the perfect spokesperson for this whole agenda of the far left running the Democrat Party.
“I know a lot of Democrats that are embarrassed and disgusted with what her and Harry Reid’s leadership has provided the Democrat Party,” Palin continued. “They want to bail out of the party specifically because of the things that she says, the things that she does, what it is that she represents.”
Palin did not name, specifically, any members of the Democratic Party that she was referring to.
She also called Obama a “tool.”
“About the 15 per cent of Americans who aren’t paying taxes and are feeding from President Obama’s hands, perhaps they will vote for such a tool,” she said. “But the rest of Americans need to stand up and say, ‘No more.'”
An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll this week put Obama ahead of Romney, 47 to 44 per cent, which is much higher than 15 per cent.
