Earlier today, Sarah Palin hinted she would live-tweet President Obama’s State of the Union address. She did not disappoint:

Obama: “There is much progress to report.” Oh really? Let’s see what the facts show… #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

22.7 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up looking for work. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

We have $46 trillion in fed spending from Obama’s FY13 Budget through 2022. That’s not “responsible” or “balanced” #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Keep in mind that the sequester was Obama’s baby. He signed it into law. Now he thinks it’s economic Armageddon. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

“Balanced approach” means “I’m going to increase your taxes to pay for my crony capitalism.” #NoOneIsBuyingThis #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

“Can’t cut our way to prosperity.” If endlessly borrowing & spending money we don’t have leads to prosperity, bankruptcy is the way forward!

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Voted for Obama? Check your paycheck withholding – it’s less. #OBuyersRemorse yet? #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Stagnant economy, Greek-style debt, inflation, no jobs, high gas prices. What say you, Obama voters? #OBuyersRemorse? #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Let’s “invest” in more “clean energy” because Obama has a lot of campaign bundlers to thank #cronycapitalismonsteroids #sotUGottaBeKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

FACT: New offshore leases for oil and natural gas drilling have declined 61% under Obama. #noenergy #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Gee, with all of these things he wants to “invest” in, how will he keep his promise not to “increase our deficit by a single dime”?

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Obama speaks of “a thriving middle class”. Let’s see how the middle class has fared under Obama…

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

The average cost of family health care premiums has risen 24% under Obama. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Just 14% of America’s seniors believe they can retire comfortably. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

The annual cost per household from federal regulations is over $15,000. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Real median household income has declined $4,520 since Obama took office. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe #ObamaHurtsTheMiddleClass

By the way, women working at the White House make less than men. Clean your own house first, Mr. President. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Now we’re going to eradicate poverty around the world. But remember this won’t “increase our deficit by a single dime” #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

RT @nraila: Obama’s “commonsense reform” requires gun registration and confiscation #SOTU youtube.com/watch?v=jHmxY7…

Well done, Gov. Palin!

We’ll keep track of Palin’s Twitter page and update this post if and when new tweets are posted.

Update:

Obama’s SOTU was more recycled rhetoric. He wants to make the fed govt more intrusive, bankrupt, and controlling. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Most things Obama talked about are handled better on the individual, local & state level. Growing our bankrupt fed govt is NOT the answer.

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 13, 2013

Should be $5.9 TRILLION. Sorry for the typo. RT $5.9 million was added to the national debt since Obama took office. #sotUGottaBKiddingMe
