Sarah Palin isn't one to back down when she is attacked. This is true even if the attack comes in an offhanded way from former first lady Barbara Bush. Barbara Bush said of Palin on a recent episode of CNN's Larry King Live,
“I think she's very happy in Alaska and I hope she'll stay there.”
Palin has now responded.
Sarah Palin on Wednesday dismissed the criticism of former First Lady Barbara Bush, who recently suggested that Palin stay in Alaska rather than run for president, referring to the Bush family as “blue-bloods.”
Speaking on Laura Ingraham’s talk radio show, Palin warned that critics like Bush “don’t understand competition is good.”
"I think the majority of Americans don't want to put up with the blue bloods -- and I say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes -- but the blue bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition to pick and choose the winners,” Palin said.
