This is why they hate her…

Sarah Palin blasted the Obama Administration’s job-killing regulations during a chat with fishermen in New Hampshire on Thursday night.
The Politico reported:
En route to the clambake Palin stopped at the Yankee Fishermen’s Cooperative to talk with fishermen and pet a lobster.
While there, the 2008 vice presidential nominee spent much of her time with Charles Felch, a fisherman for 44 years and owner of the Lady Victoria, a cod and lobster fishing boat.
“It is survival, it is,” Palin said, commiserating with Felch over the difficulties of the fishing business.
Palin’s husband, Todd, is also a commercial fisherman.
Palin used the opportunity to rail against recently tightened fishing regulations, which she said have hit New Hampshire fishermen especially hard because the state’s coastline was so short.
The regulations, Palin said, were the result of “overly cautious environmental concerns.”
Felch came away impressed.
“She’s great, I like her,” he said, adding that he would vote for her.
He wasn’t the only one.
Felch’s son, unloading fish from the boat, called up to Palin, “the government screwed us so bad, I’m definitely a part of the tea party movement.”
Palin went for the picture perfect moments, standing on the dock with her hair blowing in the wind as the fish were unloaded and then heading inside, where she inspected some of the catch.
