Palin Versus Obama On Nukes: Game On!

Sarah Palin and Rep. Michelle Bachman appeared together before a crowd of thousands last night in Minnesota at a fundraiser for Bachman, and both of them spent a littl etime with Sean Hannity discussing Barack Hussein Obama's elimination of any mention of Islam or jihad in the new National Security Strategy documents, and his new nuclear protocol stating that essentially takes our nuclear arsenal off the table even if we're attacked.

Palin's money quote? "He's like a kid on the playground walking around telling people 'punch me in the face, I won't retaliate'"

Needless to say, Prez Obama wasn't happy about that. Here he is in an interview with ex-Clintonista turned news anchor George Stephanopoulos:

“I really have no response to that. The last I checked, Sarah Palin is not much of an expert on nuclear issues,” Obama said in an interview with ABC News…

“What I would say to [Republican critics] is, is that if the secretary of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff are comfortable with it, I’m probably going to take my advice from them and not from Sarah Palin.”

So Robert Gates has changed his opinion since he said this, back in October of 2008, less than a year and a half ago?:

There is no way to ignore efforts by rogue states such as North Korea and Iran to develop and deploy nuclear weapons, or Russian or Chinese strategic modernization programs. As long as other states have or seek nuclear weapons – and potentially can threaten us, our allies, and friends – then we must have a deterrent capacity that makes it clear that challenging the United States in the nuclear arena – or with other weapons of mass destruction – could result in an overwhelming, catastrophic response…

Our nuclear arsenal also helps deter enemies from using chemical and biological weapons. In the first Gulf War, we made it very clear that if Saddam used chemical or biological weapons, then the United States would keep all options on the table. We later learned that this veiled threat had the intended deterrent effect as Iraq considered its options.

While some may not see a real nuclear threat to the United States today, we should be mindful that our friends and allies perceive different levels of risk within their respective regions. Here, our arsenal plays an irreplaceable role in reducing proliferation.

Now, did Gates really change his mind that radically in such a short span of time? Or did he just change bosses and is going with the program?

Common sense tells you that you never take your options off thew table or tie your hands in advance. Which shows, if nothing else who has more of that priceless commodity, Sarah Palin or Barack Hussein Obama.

Hat tip, Allah

please helps me write more gooder!

“I really have no response to that.
in saying this hussein confirms what S/P stated.

The last I checked, Sarah Palin is not much of an expert on nuclear issues,
S/P was gov. for the same amount of time hussein was a u.s. senator. yet he has all the knowledge and experience. yeah, riiiiight.

the next paragraph has about as many turns/twists as a rattlesnake in heat.
it is still hussein quoting saul alinsky. hussein deflects to others for responsibility for making this decision. then goes on to use the word "probably" in the next sentence. why the use of that word? and in doing so used her name twice in two sentences.
saul alinsky 101.
personalize the issue.
that may work for a criminal community organizer in san chicago, but is not presidential.
hussein took on rush, personally.
how'd that work out for 'ya cupcake
everytime hussein mentions her name it is free publicity.
everytime hussein mentions her name it gives her credibility.
the secdef and joint chiefs are political generals with secure pensions and on the clock.
they don't care.
neither does hussein.
