Uh-Oh...Sarah Palin Just Found Her Message
"If the government owns 60% of GM and is borrowing money like crazy from China...who really owns GM?"
It's a very good question. She and the GOP have figured out the open door to walk through. Attack government borrowing and point out that it comes at the cost of giving increasing policy control to foreign power. FDR's stimulus in the Great Depression was not funded by foreign powers, a point the Chinese Finance Minister echoed when he said today that US Treasury bonds should be issued in yuan, not in dollars.
Palin's interview with WWF character Sean Hannity will be aired tonight, and the message will probably be co-opted by the fractured GOP and gain wider traction. It hits the fear buttons, and it's true. Early transcript of her interview here.
