Sarah Palin didn’t only go after Obama on his address, but took issue with O’Reilly’s soft stance on Obama’s energy policies. Palin told O’Reilly that we can’t just get rid of oil, but we need to develop all three legs of the stool – conventional, renewable, and conservation. She then chided Obama for not understanding the linkage between our energy and national security.
She took issue with Obama allowing BP to control the facts and thus the situation. She has cautioned on several occasions, tonight and in the past,
that you can’t allow BP to control the situation because their interests aren’t always in line with the American people’s interest.
But one criticism that I thought was especially true was that Obama has failed at communicating that stopping the oil gusher is his top priority. Sure, we all assume that, but when you look at what he plans to do, he’s left it all in their hands and has no plan to make it happen. What if BP can’t stop it? What then?
I think this was Sarah Palin’s best appearance to date on Fox News as a pundit. She was very strong and powerful at times, giving indication that if she were in command she would be able to handle this mess and come up with plans to keep the oil at bay. She is really starting to sound presidential.
