Posted on 02/08/2010 10:52:46 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Self-confessed bulldog with lipstick and conservative hero Sarah Palin has started her 2012 campaign on a combative note. War with Iran and soon. This comes in the wake of Tehran yet again getting up the Wests noses with regard to their uranium enrichment programme.
Palin advocated war with Iran in a recent interview with Fox news and added that the war card may well be Obamas safest bet for re-election in 2012. "Say he decided to declare war on Iran or decided really to come out and do whatever he could to support Israel, which I would like him to do," she said on Sunday.
She also added that she felt Obama would not be re-elected were the US to go to the polls today.
This comes in the wake of her comments at a Tea party Convention this past weekend where she criticised Obamas hope-y change-y policies and asked what had they done for you.
Palin who seemingly went to ground following her and Senator John McCain electoral loss to Obama in 2008 has recently become more publicly active, joining Fox News as an analyst and commentator and speaking out more on current political events.
That and rumours that she has a pool of advisers helping her analyse and speak out on policy has fuelled rumours that the Republican party is preparing her for a major assault on the polls in 2012. A frequent criticism of Palin during the last electoral race was that while she appealed very well to her conservative constituency her grasp on global affairs was embarrassingly limited and her views were too hardline to appeal to the crucial moderate voter pool.
Three sets of sanctions have already been imposed on Iran. Despite other countries which have veto power in the UN Security Council, China has insisted on continued dialogue to resolve the issue.
The US, which has accused Iran of developing nuclear weapons, has also threatened the Islamic Republic with war to force Tehran into halting its nuclear activities.
The war drums are being beaten as new reports have revealed that the Israeli navy has dispatched two ships armed with missiles into the Persian Gulf.

Who wrote this, Baghdad Bob?
Okay, now they’re just making stuff up about what she said. By the way, it’s probably a blog saying this, although I don’t know because I won’t dignify it with a hit.
I don’t recall her advocating for war with Iran...anyone?
LOL she never said she wanted to go to war with Iran..she was making a hypothetical statement that if Obama has ANY chance in winning in 2012, he would have to show he is tough on terror, and if Iran has nuclear weapons and is a threat to Israel, that he might show some balls and attack Iran. Obama will NEVER do it because Obama is butt buddies with terrorist leaders
"There are no American tanks in Baghdad!"
Iran had their revolution in 1979. The U.S. is going into another Depression. Let’s take care of US for a change.
I think she Quoted Reagan “ We win, they Lose”
Patently false to what Palin said. She was speculating to what would happen to Obama’s future political fortunes if he did indeed declare war on Iran. Nowhere did Palin mention her own personal preference towards Iran except in the same comment she hoped that Obama would begin to form a tighter relationship with Israel.
Look out Iran, President Palin will declare war on you in 2013.
Well, we have two choices. Iran with nuclear weapons or war with Iran (not necessarily total war, but, you know, in the very least blockades and such). I’d love the discussion to be framed that way, instead of the old “We’re trying diplomacy, too, but our diplomacy is better than yours!”
I wonder what her husband’s views on this are?
It looks to me like the “which” refers to the closer of the two clauses, the one about support for Israel.
But hey, if you want to alienate the young, anti-Ahmadenijad opposition, kill innocent people, and send billions of dollars down a sinkhole fighting yet another war, you are entitled to.
Minnie Pearl once again should be careful when she speaks.
Writer = english as a second language.
I suppose the actual quotes were unavailable to this presstitute?
In the Fox News Sunday interview with Chris Wallace, she specifically said she didn’t think Obama would “play the war card”. Adding:
“I’m saying, if he did, things would dramatically change if he decided to toughen up and do all that he can to secure our nation and our allies. I think people would perhaps shift their thinking a little bit and decide, well, maybe he’s tougher than we think he is today. And there wouldn’t be as much passion to make sure that he doesn’t serve another four years —”
Any theory that Palin wants to go to war with Iran is a result of too many bong hits by the author.
Demint/Daniels???? LOL, seriously???
And then you wonder why we don’t take Palin-bashers seriously.
