WASHINGTON, Ill. (AP) - Sarah Palin criticized President Barack Obama on Saturday for saying America is a military superpower "whether we like it or not," saying she was taken aback by his comment.
"I would hope that our leaders in Washington, D.C., understand we like to be a dominant superpower," the former Alaska governor said. "I don't understand a world view where we have to question whether we like it or not that America is powerful."

Well, he does wear Mom jeans...
I'm coming to agreement with you on this one. Germany doesn't need my granchildren's money. Last time I was there the youts were yelling that they even wanted the American toruists to go home....so be it.

Palin taken aback by Obama ‘superpower’ remark
Life would be so much easier for Ozero if we were some podunk EU country with no global presence or clout.
Hey, he has to have goals huh?
0's not a brilliant speaker, he's a brilliant presenter. Take away the prepared remarks and the teleprompter, and it's all, "Uh, . . .", "Mmmm, . . .", and off-the-mark banalities. Even in many of the "interviews" he does, with the questions and answers prepped ahead of time, he comes off as being lame and vague.
Without the teleprompter, he's the goofy almost-"professor" who doesn't really understand the material, but has a desparate need to convince the students he's smarter than they are.
Those look like the ruby slippers.
I want USA to be #1, so SP is still spot on but I agree that a little more George Washington in foreign policy would be very nice.
In some ways, our military all over the earth is like another entitlement, only for the whole world. Years ago after WWII and before fall of USSR, it could be more justified. But conditions have changed.
Because they are staging areas for trouble spots in those regions.
yes the MSM didn’t even get this right. He is no orator. He has a “pleasant” voice that would work well reading the news for NPR.
It is amazing how clueless he becomes as soon as he goes off teleprompter.
I have a feeling the msm will slowly ignore Sarah and begin to attack the talk show hosts. It’s already begun with bubba being sent out to reprieve his THE OKC BOMBING WAS RUSH’S FAULT.
Reagan: “We win; they lose.”
Obozo: “We lose; they win.”
“Being a superpower is an expensive burden. “
The British thought the same thing and disarmed. Not a good result for them.
“Life would be so much easier for Ozero if we were some podunk EU country with no global presence or clout.”
His strategy of course.
Obama believes in his own superpower presidency, but wishes out nation to be a humble, bowing empty shell of its former self.
As Samuel Adams said: No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.
The past few speeches I’ve seen her give, her intro music has been Kellie Pickler’s “Red High Heels”.
Human nature never changes and never will. The only way to ensure peace is through strength. The only way to project strength throughout the world is those military bases, that Navy, those missiles, that air force that the USA citizens pay for. A world war will cost 20-100times more than any amount we are paying now for defense.
You can call that “dancing” I call it refreshing that a national leader understands the people are smart enough not to need 2nd grade level discourse,
further, the media already tried to ignore Palin after she resigned. Palin’s book tour brought that effort to a halt. Palin has a way about her that ensures she will not allow herself and her message to be ignored.
I expect an Obama backtracking “what I meant to say” moment at any time.
But they are and they do.
