NEW YORK (The Blaze/AP) -- During her debut on NBC's "today" show, Sarah Palin didn't sound too gung-ho about Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential candidate, but she insists that anyone is better than Barack Obama in the White House. And NBC's Matt Lauer didn't mind making her feel welcome in his own special way.
Anybody "would be infinitely better than what we have today," Palin said Tuesday during an interview during the show's first hour before she co-hosted the second hour.
The 2008 vice presidential candidate was responding, sort of, to host Matt Lauer asking if she is happy with Romney as the presumptive Republican nominee.
When Lauer asked her why voters should put Obama out of office when recent signs suggest things are improving under his economic policies, Palin replied: "They aren't getting better fast enough."
She also made sure to repeat the mantra "failed socialist policies." And Lauer made sure to remind her that as co-host she's now part of the "lamestream media." In fact, he even asked if the GOP nominee should pick a VP that has more experience than she had when she was "plucked from obscurity."
We'll update the story with more video from Palin's debut as it becomes available.
Today has posted additional Palin clips. There's a compilation, which features Palin having some fun at her own expense:
And there's also video of her joining in on a discussion about parenting:
When asked how she thought it went, Palin responded, "Organized chaos."
"I've always said if everything is under control, you're going too slow, as Mario Andretti says too. It's been a great morning."
