Palin accuses Obama of deep ties to Big Oil




No, not a joke. She was serious or at least pretended to be serious. File this under the “whatever they accuse you of doing, that’s what they have already done” file. Obama’s response has been awful but for any Republican and Sarah Palin specifically to attack Obama over ties to Big Oil is laughable.

Speaking on ” Fox News Sunday,” the former Alaska governor said she remained a “big supporter” of oil drilling but believed “these oil companies have got to be held accountable.”

Pointing to what she termed the White House’s relationship with “the oil companies who have so supported President Obama in his campaign and are supportive of him now,” Palin questioned whether “there’s any connection there to President Obama taking so doggone long to get in there, to dive in there, and grasp the complexity and the potential tragedy that we are seeing here in the Gulf of Mexico.”
