    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said Thursday night that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), should come clean about their earlier support for the bailout and subsequent stimulus.

    “Well, that is when a mea culpa comes in quite handy and everyone who voted for TARP and stimulus, and the six trillion dollars additional in debt that we hand to our kids and grandkids to have to pay off, which totals now $16 trillion in debt by growing government these last four years under Obama, now everybody needs say, 'hey, I’m sorry man, for voting for that, sorry for supporting these bailouts and the Cash for Clunkers and all these goofy programs where centralized government planners tried to plan our economy and they failed.'" Palin said in an interview with Fox News.

    Palin says they can both move beyond their pasts if they promise to go cold turkey when it comes to spending.

    "Say, sorry shouldn’t have done that," Palin said. "We learned our lesson, we will not repeat this and we will not continue to incur debt. Period. We will engage in austerity measures; they need to start actually using the 'a' word. We will live within our means in America to let the private sector grow.”

    Why does Sara seem to have a bug up her butt?? :lol:

    That's not the point. Neither one of them has admitted that they supported the stimulus and the bailout. That's what Sara Palin is complaining about. :lol:

    I really think she is angry because she was not asked to speak at the convention.

    If Romney and Ryan hadn't been TARP supporters, they wouldn't be on the Republican ticket. Only neocons (false conservatives) are supported by the Republican party leadership. Although, Romney wasn't in Congress. And, Ryan, to his credit, said to Congress (before passage) that TARP offended his principles. Ryan also ripped on assholes like McCain (without names) who publically hyped the importance of TARP (which later contributed to investor panic when TARP initially didn't pass).

    (TARP, a trillion dollars of deficit spending to "stimulate" the economy.)
