Palin cheers on Santorum’s ‘bullshit’ response: ‘Don’t retreat’

On Monday’s “On the Record with Greta Van Sustren,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin reacted to Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum referring to the premise of a question posed by New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny as “bullshit.”

The former Pennsylvania senator had made those comments in Wisconsin on Sunday and despite the coarse language, Palin approved of Santorum’s comments, saying Zeleny was “in the tank” for President Barack Obama.

“Santorum’s response to that liberal leftist in-the-tank-for-Obama press character really revealed some of Rick Santorum’s character,” she said. “And it was good, and it was strong, and it was about time because he’s saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting the conservative’s words, putting words in his mouth, taking things out of context and even just making things up.”

Palin encouraged more of that from Santorum and his Republican competitors on the campaign trail.

“So, when I heard Rick Santorum’s response I was like, ‘Well, welcome to my world Rick, and good on ya. Don’t retreat. You are saying enough is enough.’ And I was glad that he called out this reporter. He and the other candidates, all of them, they need to do more of this because believe me, the American people are tired of what that leftist media continues to do to conservatives.”
