Gov. Palin: I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So … Obama tries to save face

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 28, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this evening:

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. Here’s what this “stupid” “insipid woman” predicted back in 2008: “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.”

Palin Mocked in 2008 for Warning Putin May Invade Ukraine if Obama Elected

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his “indecision” and “moral equivalence” may encourage Russia’s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

Palin said then:

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.

For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine.

In light of recent events in Ukraine and concerns that Russia is getting its troops ready to cross the border into the neighboring nation, nobody seems to be laughing at or dismissing those comments now.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and “this is an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

“And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel,” Hounshell dismissively wrote.

Palin made her remarks on the stump after Obama’s running mate Joe Biden warned Obama supporters to “gird  your loins” if Obama is elected because international leaders may test or try to take advantage of him.

Watch video of her remarks and read more  here.

Interestingly, I saw CNN Breaking News a short while after her statement that Obama had himself made a statement.  Here is an excerpt from the CNN article, which was posted about an hour after Governor Palin’s Facebook post. (Lee’s article posted in early afternoon.)  How many times have we seen Obama jump after Governor Palin called him out!

(CNN) – The United States is “deeply concerned” by reports of Russian military movements inside Ukraine, President Barack Obama said Friday, saying any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty would be “deeply destabilizing.”

Obama said that the situation in Ukraine was “very fluid” and that the United States would continue to coordinate closely with European allies and communicate directly with the Russian government.

“The United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine,” he said.

One Response to “Gov. Palin: I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So … Obama tries to save face”

  1. I was at the Anchorage Dimond Center Mall today perusing the native art displays when I ran into a couple of gents I knew from the Glennallen/Copper Center area. While their Aleut spouses were selling items, we started chatting. They asked me how could we get Sarah to run for president? We commented about what a beating she and her family took in ’08 and we wondered why would anyone want to do that again? I doubt that the media has developed any semblance of integrity since then. In fact, I told them about the phone call I got this morning from a lower ’48 area code: A hired telemarketer firm asked us (for the umpteenth time) to re-subscribe to the Anchorage Daily News. I mentioned how after they ripped Palin to shreds every day, about half of their subscribers cancelled their subscriptions. I imagine ADN thought they could ride it out until it blew over. It never blew over. ADN had to close their offices in Juneau, Matsu Valley, and Fairbanks and lay off 300 people (I think). The paper is now so small it’s embarrassing. Well, maybe the media-scene has now transformed enough that Sarah might be able to weather the attacks. Last time, nobody helped. She was on her own. Maybe it would be different this time. She could start every speech with, “Remember when I told you ………. ?”
