Sarah Palin on President Obama’s “Winning the Future” Slogan

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 27, 2011

Sarah Palin was interviews on Fox’s Greta Van Susteren Show and discussed President Obama’s State of the Union address.  She went after the Obamas used phrase, “Winning the Future“.   Kinda s a bit corny like President Ford’s “Whip Inflation Now“, doesn’t it?

Being as hip as the President on the use of terms and their acronyms in texting, Palin blasted the Obama stating: “There were a lot of WTF moments through that speech.”  For those not familiar with this acronym in texting, it stands for “what the f____”.

Palin then criticized the President’s use of the term “a Sputnik moment”.  See her comments below and enjoy.

There are those that continually blast Ms. Plain’s intellectual skills in a similar fashion that they attacked Ronald Reagan in the 1970’s.  Those attacks failed with Reagan because Reagan’s message resonated with the People.  Should the Left continue to attack the person rather than debating Palin’s views, they may well find a similar result with Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin’s comments:

His theme last night in the State of the Union was the “WTF,” you know, “Winning the Future.” And I thought, “OK, that acronym, spot on.” There were a lot of “WTF” moments throughout that speech, namely, when he made the statement, Greta, that he believed that we can’t allow ourselves to, I guess, eventually become buried under a mountain of debt.  That right there tells you he is so disconnected from reality! The problem is, we are buried under a mountain of debt, and jobs cannot be created by the private sector.  We cannot grow and thrive and prosper as a nation when we are buried under this $14 trillion debt.

Later:

That was another one of those WTF moments, when he so often repeated this Sputnik moment that he would aspire Americans to celebrate.  And he needs to remember that what happened back then with the former communist USSR and their victory in that race to space, yes, they won, but they also incurred so much debt at the time that it resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union.

So I listened to that Sputnik moment talk over and over again, and I think, No, we don’t need one of those.  You know what we need is a “spudnut” moment.  And here’s where I’m going with this, Greta.  And you’re a good one because you’re one of those reporters who actually gets out there in the communities, find these hard-working people and find solutions to the problems that Americans face.  Well, the spudnut shop in Richland, Washington – it’s a bakery, it’s a little coffee shop that’s so successful, 60-some years, generation to generation, a family-owned business not looking for government to bail them out and to make their decisions for them.  It’s just hard-working, patriotic Americans in this shop.
