Sarah Palin has some choice words for Barack Obama tonight in another appearance on Fox News Channel.
On "Hannity & Colmes," she dismisses Obama's planned 30-minute prime-time commercial Wednesday night. The Obama camp announced today that the half-hour spot will air on Univision, the highest-rated Spanish-language network, as well as CBS, Fox, and NBC.
"American viewers will go into it just understanding that it's more of the same and it's scripted, of course. So, that goes to the heart of my concern about his lack of candidness in terms of telling Americans really, what his plans are," Palin said.
What she describes as Obama's candor on his tax plans -- these days she likes to call him "Barack the wealth spreader" -- is turning the contest in Republicans' direction, she argues.
"I think it's very close, and I think there is a lot of enthusiasm -- there is a lot of enthusiasm for voters to be able to get the candid, real responses from their candidates. And finally, that's what is changing the face of this race, Sean, is that finally there is some candidness being forced out of Barack Obama for him to get to fess up on what his plans are for tax increases and spreading the wealth."
