President Barack Obama
lashed out at Sarah Palin
today after she criticized his decision to enter into a mutual arms reduction agreement with Russia. In an appearance in Minnesota yesterday, Palin likened the agreement to a scene on the playground, with "a bunch of kids getting ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face and I'm not going to retaliate.'"
Granted, this isn't the most
articulate assessment I've heard about the president's plans to downsize our nuclear arsenal, but Palin's point is quite clear: this was a bad move on the president's part and, as a result, our country is less secure.
In response, President Obama told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he had no response to Palin's critique. Instead, Obama sloughed off Palin's criticism of the treaty, saying, "[L]ast I checked, Sarah Palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues."
"Hello, kettle? This is Barack. You're black."
checked, Obama wasn't an expert on nuclear issues either. The fact is, Palin's criticism is not only warranted, but shared by millions of other Americans. Obama's egotistical intellectual superiority complex and blatant dismissal of citizens' legit concerns are just a couple of many
reasons his approval numbers continue to fall
The latest news is that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
has canceled his trip
to attend Obama's nuclear summit (yes, another summit) which starts next Monday. Prime Minister Netanyahu must not be "much of an expert on nuclear issues" either since he, too, is apparently not enthralled with Obama.
