Sarah Palin


In Reno, Nev., today, Governor Sarah Palin attacked both Sens. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his running mate Joe Biden, D-Del., for Biden’s remarks the other night. (More on those remarks HERE.)

“First, did you hear what Sen. Biden said at a fundraiser on Sunday?” Palin said. “He guaranteed that if Barack Obama is elected, we will face an international crisis within the first six months of their administration.  He told — he told his Democrat donors to mark his words –- that there were ‘at least four or five scenarios’ that would place our country at risk in an Obama administration. I guess we got to say, ‘well, thanks for the warning, Joe!'”

Palin noted that Biden “didn’t specify what those four or five scenarios will be, but for clues, let’s review the Obama foreign policy agenda to find out what maybe this would be. So, our opponent wants to sit down with the world’s worst dictators. With no preconditions, he’s proposing to meet with a regime in Tehran that vows to wipe Israel off the Earth. Now, let’s call that crisis scenario number one.

“Now, Sen. Obama proposing too having advocated sending our U.S. military into Pakistan without the approval of the Pakistani government. Invading the sovereign territory of a troubled partner in the war against terrorism. We gotta call that scenario number two. OK, then. He opposed the surge strategy that has finally brought victory in Iraq within sights. Yes. Our opponent voted to cut off funding for our troops, leaving our young men and women at grave risk in the war zone. He wants to pull out, leaving some 25 million Iraqis at the mercy of an Iranian-supported Shiite extremist groups and al Qaeda in Iraq. By his own admission, this could mean our troops would have to go back to Iraq. That’s crisis scenario number three. And then, after the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Sen. 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. That’s crisis scenario number four.

“But I guess the looming crisis that most worries the Obama campaign right now is Joe Biden’s next speaking engagement. Let’s call that crisis scenario number five.”
