Sarah Palin apparently didn't listen to President Obama's speech before she went on Bill-O's show to attack him. From Media Matters:
Following President Obama's speech addressing the Gulf oil spill, Sarah Palin claimed that "we haven't heard" that stopping the leak is his "top priority." Palin must not have been listening, because minutes earlier, Obama said, "We will fight this spill with everything we've got for as long as it takes."
Palin falsely claims, "We haven't had the assurance by the president" that stopping oil leak is "top priority"
Palin: "We haven't had the assurance by the president that that has been his top priority." On his Fox News show, Bill O'Reilly hosted Fox News contributor Sarah Palin and asked her to "[t]ell the nation tonight what you would have said, your main point in that speech." Palin responded: "Stopping the gusher. That's the number one priority of the nation. ... We haven't had the assurance by the president that that has been his top priority. Instead, what his top priority is, Bill, is cap and tax."
Obama has called the Gulf oil spill "my top priority"
Obama from Oval Office "Make no mistake: We will fight this spill with everything we've got for as long as it takes." During his address from the Oval Office, which Fox News carried live, Obama stated: "Because there has never been a leak this size at this depth, stopping it has tested the limits of human technology. That's why just after the rig sank, I assembled a team of our nation's best scientists and engineers to tackle this challenge -- a team led by Dr. Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and our nation's Secretary of Energy." Obama added that "in the coming weeks and days, these efforts should capture up to 90 percent of the oil leaking out of the well."
As they also noted she went on to shill for a Maine company that failed an initial quality test on some boom they wanted to sell for the cleanup. Maybe she was watching Fox & Friends and using them for her research department.
Fox & Friends attacked the Obama administration for not immediately purchasing a manufacturer's oil containment boom. However, the company has not previously manufactured oil boom, their product reportedly "differs from other designs being used," and BP has reportedly "ordered a trial run" of the boom before committing to purchase it.

O'Reilly actually pressed Palin on how she would have stopped the "leak" and I really hate that term by the way because this is not just a "leak", but anyway, he asked her if she knew how to stop it and here's her response.
