She'll be lambasted for this, from all of the usual places, but as usual she boils it down to its essence. About Obama and his foreign policy, from her Facebook page:
It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.
The lickspittle press will pile on, probably, and try to create a Romney-Palin story out of this, but it'll backfire. This is Obama's Jimmy Carter moment. And Palin is pressing the case. She's a handful, and a mixed bag, and a lot of other things besides, but I'm sure glad she's on our side.
