"Barack Obama is a socialist," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), claimed on Fox News Monday night, speaking about her concerns regarding a fiscal cliff deal, growing American debt and a president who, she said, could even be leading the nation on a slow march toward communism.
Talking with Sean Hannity, Palin said that the opening offer Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner presented to Republicans last week to avert the fiscal cliff was a dangerous proposition.
“A very scary proposal was recently revealed by Geithner essentially saying, ‘Let the president have free rein on raising the debt ceiling to whatever level he wants it.' That’s a very scary thought," she said, pointing to Obama's supposedly "socialist" views.
