Sarah Palin On Obama Victory: 'It's A Perplexing Time For Many Of Us Right Now' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin weighed in on the election Tuesday night, saying she she 'cannot believe' that Americans would support the president's policies.

Speaking to Greta Van Susteren, Palin remarked:

"I just cannot believe that the majority of Americans believe that incurring more debt is good for the economy, for our children's future, for job creators. I just cannot believe that the majority of Americans believe that it's OK to ignore the constitution and not have a budget."

She added, "It's a perplexing time for many of us right now."

Although the results of the election were not certain at the time Palin spoke, she appeared to see the writing on the wall, laying out reasons for Romney's electoral defeat.

She said, "The realization is that those Bain Capital ads that voters just got inundated with in Ohio and some of these other areas as it pertains to the auto bailout, I think really hurt Romney."
