Hurts so bad that Palin was right and Obama-Media Industrial Complex wrong
Legal Insurrection ^ | March 2, 2014 | David Gerstman

For Politico and others, “sorry” seems to be the hardest word..

As Brian and Neo have previously posted, during the 2012 campaign Mitt Romney was mocked by President Obama and his cheerleaders for highlighting the Russian threat to American interests.

Romney wasn’t the first Republican mocked for suggesting that Obama wasn’t ready or willing to stand up to Russia’s leader.

In 2008, vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin warned of Russian troops invading the Ukraine.

In October 2008, after Russia’s invasion of neighboring Georgia emerged as a foreign policy flashpoint in the homestretch of a heated campaign, Palin told an audience in Nevada, “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.”

Her prediction was derided by Foreign Policy magazine as “strange” and “extremely far-fetched,” but Palin, frequent media antagonist that she is, couldn’t resist crowing about how events have played out.

Twitchy, it seems, never forgets. (In this case aided by Jammie Wearing Fool.)

Gov. Palin is enjoying the vindication on Facebook.

Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as “an extremely far-fetched scenario” by the “high-brow” Foreign Policy magazine.

Twitchy (again) notes that the editor in question is digging deeper.

Earning himself an appropriate rebuke.

Speaking of the “Court Media,” here’s a line from the Washington Post’s endorsement of President Obama in 2008.

"And we find no way to square his professed passion for America’s national security with his choice of a running mate who, no matter what her other strengths, is not prepared to be commander in chief."

I am still waiting for the comeuppance of the mainstream media. While they are losing readers and viewers, they still seem to set the political agenda. Their mindless shilling for Obama – in both foreign and domestic policy – should have damaged their credibility as unbiased observers beyond repair. It still hasn’t happened. Though I expect that stories like this bring that day closer.

They'll stick with their "she's an idiot" meme as long as they can, especially now, when there's a chance that she may be on a ticket opposite Hillary.

Kind of doubt she (SP) will be running; Just my opinion based on nothing. But there’s little question that the “she’s dumb” bombs will keep being thrown. It’s such an ingrained habit at this point. After all, it’s a heck of a lot easier to hang with the fourth-grade playground insults rather than grow up and face harsher realities. For idiots and college professors alike. If there’s a difference.

You do know that that was said in a skit on SNL by a person playing Palin. Then the lame stream media picked up on it and attributed it to Palin. Right??? :)

They’ll start with “she’s an idiot” but back it up with “she’s a liar, she never said that”.

Heck, if it works for the Senate Majority Leader...

It’s OBVIOUS that Putin is just a racist, that hates the idea of a black president, so he can be ignored, right??

Not only did Palin predict this exact scenario as it plays out, she also predicted Obama’s total inability to deal with the situation.

That's two for two.

Just how bad, inadequate and feckless Obama would actually prove to be when the chips were down, nobody at the time could predict even in their worst dreams

It never fails. Even conservatives still believe that Palin said what Tina Fey actually said.

I’m thinking that 0bama will have his a$$ handed to him internationally. He can’t scream racism on the world stage because he’d be laughed at big time, like that’s not happening now. He’ll yell and throw tantrums scaring Putin into sending Kerry over there to really put the fear into him. Yuk!

Ya, bet if that skit said that she said the moon was made of green cheese the media would pick up on that too.

I really don’t think 0 cares a whit about what happens in other predominantly white nations. He goes through the motions and reads what his teleprompter says but his only passions seem to be espn, golf, blacks, homosexuals and islam.

The invasion of the Ukraine via Crimea was a major plot line in Clancy's latest work Command Authority, but Obama is certainly no Jack Ryan.

At this rate (stolen from another FReeper), pretty soon we’ll all be seeing Russia from our front and back porches.

Will Putin lay claim to Brighton Beach, since they are majority Russian speakers there?

I saw this happening way back in 94 when they didn’t properly resolve the issue, it was just a matter of “when”.

I think you're correct, and we'll back to the profile of Obummer as a post-colonialist, identifying with lack Africa, as drawn by Dinesh d'Souza.

It’s not just Palin. Anyone educated in these matters could predict this outcome as a likelihood.
