Republican Sarah Palin predicted a “political earthquake” on Tuesday in which the GOP will win big in elections across the country.
“The message has been sent [to Democrats] that they blew it,” Mrs. Palin said on “Fox News Sunday.” “You blew it, President Obama. We gave you two years” to improve the economy.
Mrs. Palin, a former Alaska governor whose backing has helped several “tea party” candidates reach the November elections, said those candidate will not have to compromise their independent ideals if elected and dismissed the idea that extending Bush-era tax cuts will increase the deficit by $4 trillion.
“The money wasn’t even there to start with,” she said.

Mrs. Palin also leveled some strong accusations against those who do not support tea party candidates, saying she “has on tape” reporters from a CBS News affiliate in Alaska looking for a child molester in crowd gathered for GOP senatorial candidate Joe Miller and others looking for a “Rand Paul moment” so they could “tweet” it.
“That’s sick,” she said. “Those are corrupt bastards.”
