Juneau: Sarah Palin has issued a
scathing response to President Barack Obama`s State of the
Union address, attacking his economic policies and "recycled
rhetoric," which she says no longer inspires hope.

In a lengthy missive on Facebook, Palin didn`t
mention the call for unity that Obama made in his speech
Tuesday.

Rather, she focused her attention on his economic
proposals, calling his ideas for investments in areas like
high-speed rail "half-baked". She says they`d put the nation
on a "bullet train to bankruptcy". She also said Obama doesn`t
understand that debt is the biggest problem facing the nation.
