Mitt Romney was so right; Obama ridiculed him and the main stream press yukked it up. Palin was right in 2008 and the press ridiculed her.
"Gov. Romney, I'm glad you recognize al-Qaeda is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what is the biggest geopolitical group facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaeda. And the 1980's are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back — because the Cold War has been over for 20 years. But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980's, just like the social policy of the 1950's, and the economic policies of the 1920's." Barack Obama
Notice Obama skipped the failed socialist policies of FDR in the 30s which extended the Great Depression in that snarky comment. And what social policy of the 50s was he referring to? When Ike wanted to desegregate the schools and Democrats fought him? And the 1920s was an era of unprecedented economic prosperity. The foreign policy of the 80s, the President (Reagan) along with the Pope and Prime Minister led to the collapse of the USSR in 1991. But these victories don't last forever, Mr. President. Someone has to show leadership.
"Yes, I could see this one from Alaska," Palin posted on Facebook, saying she said "told-ya-so" in the case of her "accurate prediction [in 2008 campaign] being derided as 'an extremely far-fetched scenario' by the 'high-brow' Foreign Policy magazine. (that guy is now editor of Politico)
I don’t want another (failed) military involvement, but I’m just sick that Obama looks so weak and pathetic. Even if I think he is, I’d like the world to see him differently.
