(CNN) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blamed President Obama on Wednesday for closing a General Motors dealership in her home state and called his transition to the White House "as predictable as Alaska's winter snow."
Saying that the federal government "should not be in the auto business," Palin blamed Obama for the closure of a car dealership in Soldotna, a city in southern Alaska.
"The transition from Candidate Obama to President Obama has been as predictable as Alaska's winter snow," Palin said in a statement issued through her political action committee, SarahPac. "'Change' in this administration has meant rapid movement toward massive government growth, huge tax burdens on future generations, and an unprecedented reliance upon foreign countries."
Palin then switched gears to praise Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele as a "man who understands what Alaskans believe."
"We have a friend in RNC Chairman Michael Steele and his bold and courageous speech defines his leadership goals that will guide us all through this most difficult time for our nation," Palin said.
