Palin slams Obama's policies, leadership in speech to tea partyers; still mum on 2012 race
INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) ' Cheers of "Run Sarah, Run" greeted Sarah Palin at a tea party rally in Iowa, but the former Alaska governor still isn't saying whether she's going to jump into the 2012 presidential race.
Palin did have harsh words Saturday for President Barack Obama and the direction that she says the country has taken in his first term.
She says "America is hurting" and at "a tipping point" due to "failed policies and incompetent leadership."
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee says the crisis runs deeper than the fear of double-dip recession or "the shame of a credit downgrade."
She says this crisis "will relentlessly rage until we do restore all that is free and good and right about America."
