Palin Slams Liberal Obama and His WTF Slogan

In yesterday’s fantastic column on the State of the Union, Ann Coulter managed to work in a dig against John McCain’s 2008 campaign when she criticized the Maverick for his excessive cooperation with the left:

You knew it was bad when John McCain leapt up and enthusiastically applauded. The last time I saw McCain applaud Obama like that was when he debated him.

Blurring the distinctions between the parties is a strategy that always helps the left.  It did in 1992, 1996 and 2008.  Paraphrasing Ronald Reagan, we do best when we present voters with bold colors, not pale pastels, which is what we did in 1980, 1984, 1988, 2000, and 2004.  Sarah Palin understands that.  In today’s Facebook post, she offers her take on the President’s State of the Union, slamming the President for his obstinate commitment to growing the size of government, and she doesn’t hold anything back:

The President’s State of the Union address boiled down to this message: “The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.” He dubbed it a “Winning The Future” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content.

Too many Republicans are afraid of what the media will say if they are too critical of the left.  No one has more reason to be afraid than Palin, who has faced the most coordinated propaganda smear campaign in  modern times.  Yet she still refuses to back down.  Her numbers are down right now, but if she runs, she will have the money and organization necessary to get her message out unfiltered.  If she does, those numbers will improve.  I’m not backing Palin for President, at least not yet.  But her ability to deliver a conservative message cannot be ignored.

I said it before and I’ll say it again, this woman is gold! I’m not convinced she’s going to run, but I really hope she does! Those on the left who want her to be the nominee better be careful what they wish for, as they’re going to be in for a big surprise!
