Gov. Palin weighs in with a good piece attacking Obama’s cap-and-trade plan.
She sets out simply and clearly the burden this monstrosity is going to impose on the economy.
This is a good angle for her to take, and within the scope of her experience and knowledge.
It is good to see this.
With some leadership and clear thinking, it is still possible to stop further structural damage to the American economy at the hands of Mr. Obama.
Michael Barone had a good piece about how the House cap and trade vote was the 1/3 of the country that does not rely on coal imposing itself on the rest. Barone’s numbers do not add up to an Obama victory in the Senate. Good. There is blood in the water.
Palin is attacking where Obama is weak. She trying to mobilize opposition and hand him a major defeat.
This is not complicated, people can understand it, its a terrible plan, and Obama has exposure on it.
A serious effort to stop it could work.
I hope Gov. Palin goes around the country making speeches about it, or otherwise campaigns against it.
Defeating Barack on something this big will strip away a lot of momentum, show he can be beaten.
The enemy has been advancing steadily. I hope that he has reached the culminating point of the attack.
It would add much sweetness to the victory if Gov. Palin was in the lead on the successful counter-attack.
