Obama honors Sarah Palin's short & tweet advice on Iran [w/video]
The Examiner ^ | February 12, 2011 | Devonia Smith

Today, President Obama's honored Sarah Palin's short and tweet advice following the overthrow of Mubarak in Egypt. That's another a testament to her fans belief that Palin has a keen presidential mastery of common sense policy directives.

In a mere 140 word Tweet, Sarah Palin challenged both the sitting American president, Barack Hussein Obama and the national media. Certainly, Palin has demonstrated the executive power of the value of just a very few words, well placed - from her tweet to the president's ear. A transcript of events follows.

From Sarah, short and tweet to Obama:

Media: ask "Will Obama Admin exert as much 'constructive' pressure on Iranian govt to change & allow freedom ~ as they just did for Egypt?" 11 Feb Top Tweet

Fox's "News Alert": Sarah Palin tweets President Obama advice on how to deal with overthrow of Mubarak in Egypt The White House said Saturday that, off the heels of 18 days of Egyptian protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, Iran should allow its people to demonstrate.

Tehran had praised Egyptians for rising up against Mubarak’s secular government, calling it an Islamic awakening. Yet some trace the roots of the grass-roots, social-media-driven revolt in Egypt to the Green Revolution protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s last election and demanding democracy.

Opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroub, both candidates in that election, wanted to stage a rally Monday in support of uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. But the regime quickly put a damper on the permit request, calling the rallies “riots by seditionists.”

“By announcing that they will not allow opposition protests, the Iranian government has declared illegal for Iranians what it claimed was noble for Egyptians,” National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said in a statement released by the White House on Saturday.

“We call on the government of Iran to allow the Iranian people the universal right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate and communicate that’s being exercised in Cairo,” he said. (Today, as reported by the the Hill)

If he had an ounce of sense, he'd have Biden resign, place her in that slot, and then resign himself. He's been over his head since Day One. Please tell me now she's "not qualified, not electable" or any of that other garbage!!

139 characters or 25 words, not 140 words. It confused me for a moment or two.

Could be you need to trademark FudgePAC! But I also was reminded of Mitt’s infamous trip to the Fudge factory, which is probably the funniest political faux pas I’ve ever seen, it cracks me up!

I agree. I sat at a table with 3 other Boy Scott Father’s. One brought up Mike Huckabee. I had to choke down my disdain.

After he and another one praised the Huckster, I said, I will vote for Sarah if she runs. They all seemed stunned, but didn’t have anything negative to say about her. I said a few more positive things about her and left it at that.

The answer is "no", Zero won't. His water-carriers in the media will cover it like he has, though.

I'd heard it called "FudgePAC" elsewhere earlier, off FR. Still, it's pretty funny (and appropriate.) I said CPAC should change their name to GPAC on here earlier.... I'm sure there'll be more acronyms to come... (so to speak, didn't mean THAT to be funny.)

Obama had his chance on Iran and he blew it. People there died while Obama said and did nothing. After the fact, many Iranians were hanged for just participating in the protests.
We hear nothing about those poor souls.

As far as I'm concerned, it was Obama’s Bay of Pigs. I am amazed what Politicians can get away with when the Media worships them. Traitors all IMHO.

Most of us saw this leadership potential when McLame introduced her as his running mate. Sarah has done more to stir up this country than any other 10 politicians combined since 2008. If the truth were known, we probably would not have had the any change in our establishment Republicans if she had not stirred the pot the way she has since.

SARAH 2012!!!

He has a record and failed when it mattered. Anything now is beyond the point. Palin will point things like that out which will only highlight Obama and the media’s fatal flaws. They’ve gotten away with this blatant incompetence and hypocrisy in the past because no Republican would continue to make it an issue and call attention to it. That is what makes Palin special and such a threat. She will not take their BS and is right there to expose them.

Which is why they don’t want her to so much as enter the presidential race because you can be sure people will be showing up to those rallies and interested in what’s going on with her and it will bring the interest level that more exciting and it will be the reckoning of the media and Demonrat machine because she is not going to hold back this time and will not be controlled by the incompetence of the McCain people. They know it and keep trying to bring her down, but she will control her destiny.

Precisely my feelings.

If he were what he pretends to be, that is exactly what he would do.

““By announcing that they will not allow opposition protests, the Iranian government has declared illegal for Iranians what it claimed was noble for Egyptians,” National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said in a statement released by the White House on Saturday.”

The “transition” occurred in Iran when “they” ousted the Shah got Khomeini. Unfortunately that’s what Egypt has that to look forward to...

Obama, the selected one, was and is aware - today he’s responding to Sarah’s tweet but it’s empty words from an empty suit. Things will remain the same in Iran - they already have their empty trench-coat guy insitu. Egypt can expect an empty suit sometime in the future.
