Sarah Palin, desperate to be back in the spotlight after her “resignation” from Fox News, this afternoon posted a lengthy screed to Facebook on President Obama’s State of the Union address, titled, “#SOTUGottaBKiddingMe.” Claiming his “his deception must be addressed,” Palin calls President Obama both ‘cocky” and a “lame duck,” and labeled his State of the Union address, “Orwellian,” filled with “recycled rhetoric,” that “glossed over the inconvenient facts” — which she twisted and cherry-picked.
“Of course, he glossed over the inconvenient facts. He boasted about job creation, but didn’t mention that real unemployment is higher today than when he took office. He touted all those still undiscovered ‘clean energy’ jobs without mentioning the tens of thousands of real jobs the Keystone Pipeline will create if he would simply allow it to be built. He sang of new energy development, but didn’t mention that new offshore leases for oil and natural gas drilling have declined a decimating 61% under his administration.”
Palin then mistakenly confuses New York Times op-ed columnist and Nobel Prize winner in economics Paul Krugman for the President’s press secretary — and calls liberals, “liars.”
“Our President wasn’t candid with Americans about our forecast, but, interestingly, in a Q&A session last week, Paul Krugman, one of President Obama’s economic cheerleaders at the New York Times, was remarkably candid about where we’re headed.”
“Here’s the good news,” Palin writes. “President Obama is in many ways a lame duck president. None of his ridiculous ideas will come to pass via the legislative process. Of course, he may try to force them down America’s throat by imposing them through other means. But they can be undone if the right people are in position to undo them. He is very bold right now – some would say cocky – because of his November win, but there is another election around the corner, and we can check his boldness at the ballot box by electing constitutional conservatives. We must continue to affirm the fact that growing our bankrupt federal government is NOT the solution. Most of what the federal government does could be handled better on the individual, local, and state levels.
“Our country didn’t weather a Revolution, two World Wars, a Civil War, a Great Depression, and countless other political and economic storms, just to be sunk by the dangerous policies of this current administration. We’re stronger than this. As President Reagan said, ‘I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.’”
