(CNN) – Former Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin is not letting up in her constant drumbeat of criticism directed about President Obama.
After saying Sunday that Arizona's female Republican governor has more "cojones" than Obama when it comes to immigration and border security, Palin suggested Wednesday night that the 44th president is still trying to figure out his governing philosophy.
Asked about a narrative – which is a persistent theme particularly in Republican and conservative circles – that Obama is too weak when it comes to issues like national security and immigration, Palin shared her insights on Fox News Channel about why she believes Obama is not doing more to secure the borders.
"I think he's quite complacent," the former Alaska governor said. "And I think he's in over his head. And I think he has poor advisers around him. And I think he's really in flux kind of when it comes to what his governing philosophy actually is. Some of this though is a result of he not having much experience and then a complicit media and maybe some voters who chose to not to allow him to be vetted very closely.
"It's a combination of things that's resulting in a president who's not taking a strong stand on those things that are the will of the people. Obviously, the will of the people is to enforce the laws that we have on the books."
During the interview, Palin also defended her recent use of "cojones," a Spanish term for male reproductive organs that can also be used as slang for "nerve" or "boldness."
In the context of enforcing the country's immigration laws, Palin said Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's "doing the right thing and our president lacks the guts to do anything about it."
And Palin took the opportunity to highlight a political setback for one of Obama's signature legislative accomplishments since taking office.
In a primary earlier this week, Missouri voters dealt a blow to the heart of Democrats' health care bill. More than 70 percent of Missouri primary voters Tuesday cast ballots in favor of Proposition C. The measure would allow state residents to opt out of mandatory health insurance, a key part of the new health care law, which was pushed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. The proposition prohibits the federal government from requiring that individuals have health insurance or penalizing people for not having such insurance.
Pointing to the successful ballot measure, Palin said Missouri voters had shown Obama how they felt about health care reform signed into law earlier this year.
"The Show Me State showed Obamacare the door yesterday," said Palin.
