THE VILLAGES, Fla. -- Palin chastised Obama Sunday for not taking a position on plans for the recovery of the nation's financial system, and said it was akin to voting present in the Illinois state legislature.

Palin said McCain offered a recovery plan this week, while "our opponent refused to even take a stand on the position," and reminded voters he voted present in the state legislature "about 130 times."

"This week he voted present on the major economic issues of the day," she said. "And that is not leadership, America, it's not leadership Americans can afford."

Palin spoke at her first event before tens of thousands at The Villages, a large retirement community in Central Florida. She was joined on stage by husband Todd and her three younger children, including Piper, who thanked the crowd for having them.

Palin also attacked Obama for supporting tax increases in the name of "patriotism."

"To the rest of America, it's about killing jobs and hurting small businesses, making things worse," she said. "This isn't about patriotism, it's about Barack Obama's poor judgment."

poor choice of words from old sloe Joe :lol:

Palin said Obama has sided with special interests "and come out against solutions that would help Americans heat their homes and fuel up their tanks and pay their energy bills."

"And I think well maybe if he had been the governor of an energy rich state, maybe then he'd get it," she said, comparing her experience to his. "Maybe if he'd been on the frontlines of securing our nation's energy independence, maybe then he'd understand."
