Former 1/2 term governor Sarah Palin is again rambling on about things she has no clue on:
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."
Obama said earlier this week that the United States must do its best to resolve conflicts around the world before they grow too serious.
"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them," Obama said. "And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure."
President Obama’s statement was very truthful, and shows on the right and left, and let’s ignore the fact that Palin is basically taking President Obama’s statement out of context. A lot has been written this week about this. Instead I would rather look at it as if though Palin was actually addressing what the President said.
For the left, we don’t like that we have to spend billions of dollars stationing our military around the globe. We would love nothing more than to close up our bases in South Korea and Germany, but we are a super power and we must remain in key strategic locations around the world so that we can act on a moments notice.
