Palin on Ukraine: I told you so
CNN ^ | February 28th, 2014 05:36 PM ET

Posted on 02/28/2014 3:15:45 PM PST by Jean S

(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.

Follow @politicalticker

"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.

The former Alaska governor was happy to highlight her prediction on Friday and scold those who criticized her 2008 comments.

Well Hell’s Bell’s....Obama probably told Putin to march on into Ukraine.....and he would help him out in his second term when he has more flexibility.

Me too..and one day, down the road the media is going to have to deal with the fact that Sarah Palin was right, about everything..they put Sarah and her family through hell for years, calling her every name in the book..and it turns out at the end of the day she was right..but, according to Bernie Goldberg(Who last week went on a trash fest against Sarah on O’Reilly’s show) she has said “Questionable” things in the past, gee Bernie, care to elaborate

I too would love to have this woman as our President of the United States.

I have to tell you a story ... A phone call came in about 30 minutes ago. It was a robo-call. The called offered Nuclear War Prevention Insurance. Said it was instituted this afternoon before obama went out to talk to reporters as a rider to the Affordable Care Act (aka obamacare). Said to purchase this rider all one need do is send twenty million dollars to the White House. Yep, we have zer0 looking out for us was the was the phone call ended. Anybody got twenty million? I need to take out a loan!

She is still the best candidate available on the Republican side. I can’t think of any other who could even carry her hang-up bag.

Palin nailed Obama from the get-go. If the McCain campaign would have unleashed her, they may have won the WH.

I hope Sarah runs as an Independent. Screw the RNC and the primary process. Take your message directly to the voters.

So whatever one thinks of Palin, it’s clear Obama is less qualified.

Sarah told us a lot of “so’s” and they are all coming true.

Does she have enough time to form a Third Party for 2016?

I will donate bigtime if she does.

BOR is a douche bag too, talking about Sarah’s “Approval rating” and how it isn’t good..please..all that matters now is the GOP approval rating and Sarah’s is through the roof, I think the last approval rating was taken a few weeks ago and it was well over 70 percent..Bernie talks trash and so does BOR and they have NOTHING to back it up with

Uh, CNN, Sarah has been right about a BUTTLOAD of things...it is you, the suckup pathetic, race-based, fake JOURNALISTS who have been wrong.

Time and time and time and time again.

I am sending some more money to SarahPAC.com just because Sarah was RIGHT AGAIN.

Hey Mr. President, the 70s are calling. They want their foreign policy back.

I think we’ll need a woman to win in 2016 anyway, but I would love to hear the words “President Palin” in January, 2017. A few more “I told you so” opportunities just might be enough to counter the MSM and giver her a shot.

Consider the source. Bernie has never abandoned his commie-lib CBS roots. He occasionally makes conservative noises in order to sell bioks, but cracks such as this one about Palin show his true leanings. IMHO, of course.

Everything Sarah Palin has said has come true, Russia invading Ukraine, death panels, saying we need to drill for oil etc.

this woman needs to be president

and the news media smears this woman and installs a socialist named Obama as president

Not a chance in hell of that happening. Putin can do whatever the hell he wants with the Ukraine, and the media will still flush Palin's warning down the memory hole.

The media will always protect Obama. They don't really give a damn about the facts.

I Guess Putin’s actions today not only proved that Sarah Palin was right.It also proved that She’s a hell of a lot smarter than the clown in the White House.

Oh I know they will never apologize to her but it was nice to dream, to hope that the media would have just an ounce of decency left in their bodies but they don’t..they are vermin, they put this woman through hell for the past five years calling her every horrific name in the book for speaking the TRUTH and guess what, everything she has said has turned out to be accurate..bet they can’t stand that fact, so instead they will ignore what is going on, say Obama is doing a good job and talk about something else, like a bridge, or some BS war on women

Those remnants are obviously not Americans anymore...they have zero love of country.

And they will have to be defeated someday, and men and women like Sarah Palin will be the leaders of that defeat.

Palin will only get better with age, and she has a long time left to grow. Along with many others who are relatively young still.

A repeat of the Carter Administration would have been a best case scenario.
