Sarah Palin is often derided by the left because of her folksy charm, good looks, and no-nonsense style. When they attack her, they attack her intelligence, just as they did with President George W. Bush. They use a statement she never said against her: “I can see Russia from my house.” (That was Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live.) They also use the infamous Katie Couric interview against her – where she didn’t supply an answer for what publications she read. They say these things prove she lacks the intellect to be a serious politician… all these things prove is that the left has no firepower with which to combat the wit and witticism of Sarah Palin.
The once Republican Vice Presidential candidate took to Facebook this past week to berate the President (and the left) with her signature flair. Below are just a few of the juicy excerpts. Make sure to read the whole thing.
“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot”
-- Sarah Palin
* President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on.
* We have no clear mission in Syria.
* Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his “red line” promise regarding chemical weapons.
* As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.
Governor Palin completely destroys President Obama and Secretary Kerry’s reasoning for war in a short and simple Facebook post. Here’s a newsflash for our politicians in Washington… if your argument falls to a Facebook post, it probably wasn’t a very good argument.
The War in Syria is a bad idea, an unjust war, a waste of our resources, and none of our business… yet we somehow may end up involved anyway. Politics is amazing, isn’t it?
The best option on the table for our country in dealing with Syria is to do nothing. We should stand up from the table, tell the United Nations to remember their raison d’etre and walk away. The proper avenue for retribution if chemical weapons were used is to allow the world community to shun the Assad regime. The next step in the Syrian conflict belongs to Syria and the United Nations -- not us. We need to stay out of Syria! Thank you, Governor Sarah Palin, for speaking common sense.
