JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Sarah Palin has issued a scathing response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, attacking his economic policies and "recycled rhetoric," which she says no longer inspires hope.
In a lengthy missive on Facebook, Palin didn't mention the call for unity that Obama made in his speech Tuesday.
Rather, she focused her attention on his economic proposals, calling his ideas for investments in areas like high-speed rail "half-baked." She says they'd put the nation on a "bullet train to bankruptcy." She also said Obama doesn't understand that debt is the biggest problem facing the nation.
She noted the speech was dubbed "Winning the Future," and suggested that the acronym of that title, "WTF," is an apt way to describe the speech.

    Once again, Ms Palin show what a troll she is, and for Channel 10 to give her space 3 days after the speech is a waste os space.

    I am sorry but she doesn't impress me. She quit being govenor, and wants to be our future president. She is opinionated, and rants and raves about everything that isn't her way. I am just not impressed by anyone who foams at the mouth like a rabid dog.

    The answer to the question "Is the pope a Catholic?" is the same as to "Is Sarah Palin an idiot?" America expressed it's opinion of this person in the '08 general election. What is the media's obsession with this person?

    I'm sorry but as an independent, I would never ever vote for this.....idiotic fool(can't think of a better definition). The only way to describe her is ..."Moron on Patrol".

    I may not agree with Presiden Obama but the lack of respect that Sarah Palin shows the President is outrageous and shows a definite lack of civility.

    You should watch the video of her appearance on Fox News where she comments on the president's speech. Somebody needs to buy her a history book, so she can figure out what really bankrupted the former Soviet Union.

    Guess if you say something often enough and loud enough people start to believe it. Debt is NOT the nation's biggest problem. Education and unemployment are our biggest problems. Guess this is why Republicans wanted to reduce taxes for the rich???

    She may not be presidential material, she is a strong advocate against all that is wrong with our government.

    WTF is not an acronym; it's an abbreviation.

    This woman is really out of line. Civility doesn't seem to be part of her vocabulary. How many more people will get shot because she wants to "target" those with different views?
