Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday for either not understanding or deliberately disrespecting the Constitution.
“We have a president who doesn’t understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution,” Palin said on Fox News’ Cashin In with host Eric Bolling.
Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of “We the People.”
She also said there needs to be “new energy” in government instead of more blue bloods and when asked about her comments suggesting that Hillary Clinton run, Palin emphasized that she never said it would be a good thing if Hillary won.
When asked what Americans could do to ensure the Constitution is not assaulted, Palin said they should elect people who “promise to pay whatever price it is going to take to protect our Constitution” at the national level and support candidates who are not afraid to call for a convention of the states, if necessary, to be a check on an overreaching federal government.
