Sarah Palin is hitting back at California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's dig at the former Alaska governor over the issue of climate change.

"Why is Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for the same sorts of policies in Copenhagen that have helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment?" Palin wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday night. "Perhaps he will recall that I live in our nation's only Arctic state and that I was among the first governors to create a sub-cabinet to deal specifically with climate change."

Palin's comments came hours after the California Republican questioned Palin's stance on climate change in an interview with the Financial Times at the Copenhagen climate change summit
"You have to ask: what was she trying to accomplish?" said Schwarzenegger, who has backed strict new emissions controls to combat climate change. "Is she really interested in this subject or is she interested in her career and in winning the (Republican presidential) nomination? You have to take all these things with a grain of salt."

    Schwenegger is just scared to death she will get the GOP nod and he won't! Leave the woman alone until she at least decides she want to
    run again. We all know Big S wants to.

    Perhaps Palin has forgotten she quit when times got tough and Arnold is still hanging in there, he's not a quitter. Living in the Nations only artic state doesn't qualify her to rise to the level of a scientist, Palin is a fraud and the biggest liar of the year.
