While watching the SOTU last night with my husband I noticed a few times Obama said the word "quit." That is a buzzword for me and any other Palin supporters. Ever since she made her decision to resign from office the Left has accused her of being a quitter. They repeat that line constantly. When I heard Obama say it I immediately thought it was a subtle dig at Palin. My husband didn't think so.
His speech was definitely not a state of the union; it was a campaign speech. It was all about looking forward, glossing over any mistakes he made and generally propping himself up as awesome. Since the tone of the speech was campaign instead of presidential, I started to feel like it was campaign time again and how would Palin compete against him if they both had their parties' nominations.
Obama ended the speech with a loud, enthusiastic and rousing "We don't quit. I don't quit!" To me that was a clear campaign slogan for 2012. I can picture him running ads with the clip of him saying that. Obama will do everything to undercut Palin and destroy her before she can run for President. I have no doubt that his phrase was intended for her, like a warning shot. It was also a cue for his rabid supporters to contine with the "she quit" meme. My husband did not agree with me, but I still see it that way.
