Sarah Palin plays ‘gotcha’ on issue of vetting (You've got to see this!)
The Washington Post's Post Partisan ^ | March 11, 2012 | Jonathan Capehart

Posted on 03/11/2012 7:48:59 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Any star worth her salt knows how to use the hype of a movie about her to call even more attention to herself after a relatively long absence. That’s why the reemergence of Sarah Palin in the middle of all the hype leading to Saturday night’s premiere of the much-anticipated movie “Game Change” was no surprise. Equally unsurprising was the nonsense she spouted with a straight face.

For instance, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, best-selling author, reality television star and Fox News contributor, appeared on “Hannity” last Thursday and complained that the media didn’t vet President Obama four years ago.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

When Palin was asked if she thought Mitt Romney was the inevitable Republican nominee, she said something that ranks a 10 on the “Are you kidding me?!” scale.

PALIN: I don’t think that anything is inevitable. The numbers are what the numbers are, though, and Romney certainly is leading in delegate count. But no, nothing is inevitable and I do appreciate that these men are continuing to duke it out in the arena of ideas and are allowing themselves to be vetted....

Notice how they left former governor of Alaska off of her description.

It’s interesting that those who hate her most are beta males with mommy issues.

Sean Hannity has said he’s going to vet Obama this time even if it costs him his job. I’m hoping that means his eligibility too. Sarah Palin is in a prime position to bring this issue forward, unless Fox tries to gag her.

Hannity rejected Thomas Sowell’s position on Obama being associated with radicals because of race the other night.

We’ll see what happens. Him making the promise ups the ante a bit though, because if he then doesn’t deliver it will give up-to-the-minute confirmation that Fox is censoring their people.

Breitbart’s tactic of putting the media on trial puts attention where it needs to be. Dianna’s article is helping that process along too. Thanks, Danae! =) And now Palin bringing it up too will helpfully help bring the issue into the spotlight too.

Sowell was saying Obama has to be associated with radicals because he’s Black?

You know, I really wish Herman Cain was still in this race.

OK, Wash Post, please show from your own archives where anyone on your staff asked questions about how Obama's academic history is missing. And his state senate records. And many other large swaths of his personal history.

Seems like the one telling the whoppers ain't Sarah Palin.

No, he was saying that Obama rejects MLK’s colorblind society, and may have race problems. Hannity said he believed it was ideological for Obama.

Thomas Sowell is much brighter than Hannity. Hannity probably needs some serious vacation time and some time reading the writings of better minds than his.

“. . . unless Fox tries to gag her.”

That all depends on what the Saudi stock holders want.

Hannity vetted Obama more in the last election than any other national media figure, so I don't think that is quite fair. He still constantly brings up all of his radical, communistic ties every chance he gets. The one place he fell, though, was on the natural born citizenship issue. I am pretty sure that Fox News barred that issue from coming up. Maybe he means he will even address that issue, which would be great, but that would likely cost his job. For some reason Fox has been sold out concerning Obama's origins, parentage and lack of standing to be President.

He may be right. Obama has consorted with Marxists on an equal opportunity basis. He even let Bill Ayres write his book...

He may use the race thingy when it suits him, but it is just another means to an end.

So, it would be the same as introducing Mitt Romney as an investment banker without mentionng tgat he had been governor of MA. It is a childish way ro try to diminidh Gov. Palin’s career.

No...Sowell had explained Prof. Bell's racism (not just against whites, but against blacks who disagreed with him) and pretty much said that Obama was the same, that he agreed with Bell, and he hired like-minded people (he named Holder). So Hannity ignores the issue of (Obama's) racism, and says how he's more worried with Obama's association with Bill Ayers.
