Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is calling for Republicans to stand united after President Obama blamed the party for the weeks-long budget crisis, saying “fiscal conservatives are more energized than ever.”
Palin told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” that Obama’s assertion the “spectacle” Republicans created “emboldened enemies of the U.S.” was “one of more out of touch remarks we have heard in recent days.”
Palin also dismissed the notion that Tea Party Republicans were the “losers” in the budget fight and may suffer in upcoming elections.
"Fiscal conservatives are more energized than ever after last night's deal where Americans came out as the losers," she said, "because we are just going to incur more and more debt and this unsustainable spending spree Barack Obama is on, no, we are saying 'enough is enough' and we are energized."
Palin, who suggested on Facebook she would support the primary challengers to some Republicans who backed the budget deal, said she is going to see who can possibly shake up the status quo in Congress in 2014.
“Those who can't stand strong to defend our republic, to defend our Constitution, heck yeah they should be primaried, otherwise we are going down," she said.
