Palin Unloads On Obama…Again !

In her latest Facebook post titled: Conquering the Storm.  The subject, of course, is economics. Specifically our overwhelming debt, the S&P downgrade, and the abject failure of Obamanomics.  It’s definitely a must-read.  Here’s a taste:

In the coming days we’ll sort through the repercussions of S&P’s downgrade of our credit rating, including concerns about the impact a potential interest rate increase would have on our ability to service our suffocating $14.5 trillion debt.

Back in December 2010, I wrote: “If the European debt crisis teaches us anything, it’s that tomorrow always comes. Sooner or later, the markets will expect us to settle the bill for the enormous Obama-Pelosi-Reid spending binge. We’ve already been warned by the credit ratings agency Moody’s that unless we get serious about reducing our deficit, we may face a downgrade of our credit rating.” And again in January, in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address I wrote: “With credit ratings agency Moody’s warning us that the federal government must reverse the rapid growth of national debt or face losing our triple-A rating, keep in mind that a nation doesn’t look so ‘great’ when its credit rating is in tatters.”

One doesn’t need a Harvard Law degree to figure this out! Just look across the pond at Europe. European nations with less debt and smaller deficits than ours and with real “austerity” plans in place to deal with them have had their ratings downgraded. By what magical thinking did we figure we could run up perpetual trillion dollar deficits and still somehow avoid the unforgiving mathematics of a downgrade? Nothing is ever “too big to fail.” And there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Didn’t we all learn that in our micro and macro econ classes? I did at the University of Idaho. How could Obama skip through Columbia and Harvard without learning that?

She goes on to talk about strong policy prescriptions for turning the US economy around, getting us back on track, and restoring prosperity through cutting spending, shrinking government, and drastically changing Obama’s stifling energy policy.  Serious proposals for serious times…

Then she wraps it all up with a strong finish, tellin’ it like it is; Sarahcuda style:

Be wary of the efforts President Obama makes to “fix” the debt problem. The more he tries to “fix” things, the worse they get because his “solutions” always involve spending more, taxing more, growing government, and increasing debt. This debt problem is the greatest challenge facing our country today. Obviously, President Obama doesn’t have a plan or even a notion of how to deal with it. His press conference today was just a rehash of his old talking points and finger-pointing. That’s why he can’t be re-elected in 2012.

Our economic news is disheartening and the task before us can seem daunting, but we must not lose our sense of optimism. People look around today and may see only the negative. They see a culture and a nation in decline, but that’s not who we are! America must regain its optimistic pioneering spirit again. Our founders declared that “we were born the heirs of freedom.” We are the heirs of those who froze with Washington at Valley Forge, who held the line at Gettysburg, who freed the slaves, carved a nation out of the wilderness, and allowed reward for work ethic. We are the sons and daughters of that Greatest Generation who stormed the beaches of Normandy, raised the flag at Iwo Jima, and made America the strongest and most prosperous nation in the history of mankind. By God, we will not squander what has been given us!

I’ve said it before, but I’ll reprise now; she sounds positively Reagan-esque, in tone and content…

And while many here may not exactly count themselves among Palin’s supporters, if she throws down a, “There they go again…”, in an affable reply to an oft-repeated, tiresome, progressive talking point; y’all might as well toss me a life preserver, because I’ll be completely in the tank.

What do you think, kind reader? Both of her post and of her, broadly speaking of course.

    A groundhog has more common sense than Obama. Ms. Palin puts the putz to shame with her common sense and ability to think and speak clearly and intelligently AND without a teleprompter.

    If you want to get a real, thrill read her WI speech!! Standing in the middle of the union PIT with brave patriots trying to save their state, who was there to speak out for them, Palin! I didn’t see Bachmann or Romney or whoever is in now stand in the icy rain being savaged by the “middle class” as they call themselves. No, this woman has been vetted inside and out, withstood the evil of the lefts media treatment and powers on. There’s one thing that people still don’t talk about is her record and that she’s a POLICY WONK!!! The woman knows the system and how to get everyone involved to fix the problems within that system so “we the people” are the ones who come out ahead. She is truly for the people, let’s get her in there by the people and fix this mess!!!

      A very good point Jann. With all due respect I think of Bachmann as a “lesser” version of Palin.

      I’m hoping she’s running in 2012.

      Thanks for the comment.
