Bear Hugs for Sarah Palin. She was able to see more of Russia than all the liberals combined.

The liberals hated Sarah Palin for more reasons than her good looks. She spoke the truth. Maybe the sexist defenders of woman-hood just couldn’t deal with the fact that Sarah Palin had some real intelligence and a better understanding of foreign affairs than they did. Almost every word she spoke was mocked on Saturday Night Live – even her famous statement that “I can see Russia from Alaska”. Well, it seems that she really could “see” Russia and the political motives of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. Now. Sarah Palin has gotten the last laugh on all of them. Maybe the public will pay more attention now to the attractive conservative spokeswoman for the Tea Party.

Palin on Ukraine: I told you so

(CNN) – Sarah Palin may be having a bragging rights moment.

In 2008, when she was the GOP vice presidential nominee, Palin questioned in a speech whether then-Sen. Barack Obama would have the foreign policy credentials to handle a scenario in which Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

“After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence – the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next,” she said in Reno, Nevada on October 21, 2008.

As Tony Lee wrote in a column on Breitbart:

Palin Mocked in 2008 for Warning Putin May Invade Ukraine if Obama Elected
For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine.

In light of recent events in Ukraine and concerns that Russia is getting its troops ready to cross the border into the neighboring nation, nobody seems to be laughing at or dismissing those comments now.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and “this is an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

Yeah, and our own limp-wristed leader, Barack Hussein Obama, has already offered his wimpish retorts to Vladimir on the invasion. That, too, will disappear into the shadows of history while Sarah Palin’s look-alike impersonator Tina Fey will probably get a lot more attention.

  1. Great for Sarah Palin that she had this foresight. I hear a lot of people criticizing obama but, what would they do if they were in his shoes? Attack the Russian forces in Ukraine? Pipelines run through the Ukraine that supply oil to
    Europe. But, I don’t see any European country getting exercised about the situation in Ukraine. Does Ukraine have a military? If so, where is it? I hate that this has happened to them. But, they must choose if this is a war they want to fight. I think the U.S. should sit this one out. For the record, I’m not defending the illegitimate occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

  2. Hi Jeff – you are right. In reality, there is precious little the US can do. Some thoughts… We are bankrupt and our leaders have gutted our military. So we cannot help the Ukraine. The Ukraine has now called up their reservists, but it will be a futile attempt I believe. Russia is preparing to recall their US ambassador, which could be a prelude to war. In the end, we may not have a choice as this is beginning to look like the beginning of a worldwide war and a setup to me. Notice, there is no substantive response from Obama to this. Even though Russia and China are moving with Cuba on Venezuela. There are crickets. Obama is going to force us into war and this is part of the plan. Russia’s overreaction to the ambassador issue indicates to me they are itching to get it on with the US and they have planned it all along. The next few days will be crucial, but it looks grim. This is a war we should and must stay out of even though we have a treaty with the Ukraine. We should be funneling all our money into rebuilding our military and preparing for war, but I know that will not happen. We should also be pulling our troops home in preparation for this. Sad to say, I think we are screwed no matter how we go now.
