Palin chided Obama on his tactics & special interest


Gov. Palin responded to comments Obama made on Wednesday when he told his supporters to persuade their friends to vote for him, “I want you to argue with them and get in their face” Palin hit Obama and said, “He told them to get in your face and you know that doesn’t sound like the politics of hope or the politics of change to me,” Palin said. “What that sounds like is the worst of politics and earlier today when some protestors in another rally they tried to do exactly that. John McCain said and I quote, ‘The one thing that Americans want us to do is stop yelling at each other’ and now that is leadership.”

Palin went after him by saying he sided with the energy special interests while boasting about her own experience with energy independence: “Our opponent says he wants to help Americans who are struggling with high-energy costs. But time and time again, he’s sided with special interests and come out against solutions that would help Americans heat their homes and fuel up their tanks and pay their energy bills,” Palin said. “And maybe if he’d been the Governor of an energy-rich state, he’d get it. And maybe–maybe if he’d been on the front lines of securing our nation’s energy independence, then he’d understand.”
