Sarah Palin has weighed in on President Obama’s State of the Union. It’s sort of an extended version of the remarks she made on Fox News last night; among many other things (which you can read for yourself) she does not approve of his lecturing tone.
Also: “Despite speaking for an hour, the president only spent 10% of his speech on foreign policy, and he left us with many unanswered questions.” Which is an interesting criticism for Palin to level at anyone, all things considered (though, she is certainly not alone in noting the lack of national security talk last night). And then there’s this interesting little aside which sounds a lot like sour grapes…and rightly so! I would imagine more than one pol in Washington is thinking the exact same tingly thing.
He talked like a Washington “outsider,” but he runs Washington! He’s had everything any president could ask for – an overwhelming majority in Congress and a fawning press corps that feels tingles every time he speaks. There was nothing preventing him from pursuing “common sense” solutions all along. He didn’t pursue them because they weren’t his priorities, and he spent his speech blaming Republicans for the problems caused by his own policies.
