Palin Throttles Obama in Op-Ed

She may have resigned as governor, but nothing else has changed when it comes to Sarah Palin’s political agenda. In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Palin circumvents the national media, who “would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip,” to rail on President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, which, she writes, would “inflict permanent damage” on America. Palin writes that major job losses both in the energy sector and other industries will ensue from the plan as costs of business rise, and that America should depend on Alaska and other energy-rich states rather than foreign oil. “The answer doesn’t lie in making energy scarcer and more expensive!” Palin writes, adding that we need to “tap the resources that God created right underfoot on American soil.”
