After Obama was in Las Vegas late last week to attend two events for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Las Vegas Review Journal published a tough editorial Sunday that faulted Obama's policies on taxes and other economic issues as the White House and Capitol Hill try to turn around the struggling economy.
"President Obama once again left behind a sinking feeling that neither he nor Sen. Reid have a clue how to pull this country out of its current dire economic straits," the paper's editorial said.
In a series of tweets posted Sunday, Palin echoed the editorial's sentiments. "What happens in Vegas shouldn't stay in Vegas;pls circulate this," the former GOP vice presidential hopeful and Tea Party favorite tweeted before dropping a link to the editorial.
"LasVegas RJ editorial recaps Obama lecture 2 Runnin' Rebs: he's got most disconnected, backasswards plan ever imposed on the country we love," Palin said in a tweet that followed, calling Obama's remarks in Vegas were a misguided lecture.

Sarah Palin is a marketing genius.
Why exactly would you want to keep the welfare state?

You mean the Republican Corporate welfare state?
Seems obvious doesn't it?
That's what Neocon Sarah is interested in.
I would like to keep a minimal welfare state, but only at a state level. Guaranteed 3 months unemployment, Social Security, Food stamps and College assistance. That is all I support.
Why Default on U.S. Treasuries is Likely
Almost everyone is aware that federal government spending in the United States is scheduled to skyrocket, primarily because of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Recent "stimulus" packages have accelerated the process. Only the naively optimistic actually believe that politicians will fully resolve this looming fiscal crisis with some judicious combination of tax hikes and program cuts. Many predict that, instead, the government will inflate its way out of this future bind, using Federal Reserve monetary expansion to fill the shortfall between outlays and receipts. But I believe, in contrast, that it is far more likely that the United States will be driven to an outright default on Treasury securities, openly reneging on the interest due on its formal debt and probably repudiating part of the principal.
