Barack Obama’s big government policies continue to fail. He should put a link to the national debt clock on his BlackBerry. The gears on that clock have nearly exploded during his administration. Yesterday’s terrible job numbers should not be a surprise because it all goes back to our debt. Our dangerously unsustainable debt is wiping out our jobs, crippling our economic growth, and jeopardizing our position in the global economy as the leader of the free world.
As a governor, I had to deal with facts, even unpleasant ones. I dealt with the world as it is, not as I wished it to be. The “elite” political class in this country with their heads in the sand had better face some unpleasant facts about the world as it is. They’ve run out of money and no amount of accounting gimmicks or happy talk will change this reality. Those of us who live in the real world could see this day coming.
MSM journalists accuse Palin of calling Obama a sugar daddy, while ignoring her policy statements.
Sarah Palin hasn’t jumped into the race for the White House (yet), but she believes the prize is there for the taking. In a conversation with Peter J. Boyer, Palin warns Boehner not to raise the debt ceiling, proclaims that Obama is beatable — and says the 2012 field is far from settled.
Wall Street Journal: Poll Shows Palin Still Stirs Strong Emotions
Ms. Palin, who has not announced whether she will run for the GOP presidential nomination, also stirs more passions — positively and negatively — than any other candidate. She has a 25% “strongly favorable” rating, with Godfather’s Pizza tycoon Herman Cain close behind, at 24%. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R- Minn.) came in third with a 20% “strongly favorable” score.
But Ms. Palin also generates the most “strongly unfavorable” feelings, according to the poll, which was released Tuesday. She had a 9% “strongly unfavorable” rating, tying with Mr. Gingrich.
