Sarah Palin Rips Obama On Libya, Foreign Policy As A Whole

I know, I know, granted you will be even busier very soon. After all, golf season kicks into high gear shortly. NBA and NHL brackets await. Summer vacations and that all-consuming campaign whistle stop tour will no doubt slam you. But I would ask, while the rest of us are also busy working, saving, planning ahead, fighting to protect our Constitution, and trying to keep up with where and why you’re spending our Department of Defense funds – I’d ask that you find time to tell Americans the truth about the state of our union and what you are doing to find solutions to our challenges. Please start with explaining Libya.

Sarah Palin released what can only be described as a masterful beat-down of Barack Obama today. She pulls no punches as she talks about our leaderless nation. She tears into Obama for wasting blood and treasure in Libya, with no clear mission for our troops.

America Deserves Libya Explanation

Please make up your mind, Mr. President. You can’t vacillate when spending America’s human and fiscal resources in yet another foreign country without good reason. You said that Libyan leader Gaddafi has got to go. Many of us heard that as your call to action and agreed, “Okay, you’re right. He’s an evil dictator who kills his own innocent people, so enforce a no-fly zone so he can’t continue an aerial slaughter.” But then you said our mission in Libya isn’t to oust Gaddafi after all. (Or vice versa on the order or your statements. Between you and your advisers the public has been given so many conflicting statements on why we’re intervening in Libya that I apologize if I can’t keep up with the timing and rationale of your murky foreign policy positions.)

At this point, to avoid further mission creep and involvement in a third war – one we certainly can’t afford – you need to step up and justify our Libyan involvement, or Americans are going to demand you pull out. Simply put, what are we doing there? You’ve put us in a strategic no man’s land. If Gaddafi’s got to go, then tell NATO our continued participation hinges on this: We strike hard and Gaddafi will be gone. If, as you and your spokesmen suggest, we’re not to tell Libya what to do when it comes to that country’s leadership, and if you can’t explain to Americans why we’re willing to protect Libyan resources and civilians but not Syria’s, Yemen’s, Bahrain’s, Egypt’s, Israel’s, etc., then there is no justification for U.S. human and fiscal resources to be spent.

I would also ask you to better explain your thinking on Libya. We can’t afford any actions that don’t take care of crucial U.S. needs and meet our own interests at this point. You are the Commander in Chief, so please explain what you believe is our “interest” there and not elsewhere.

Mr. President, your hesitation and vacillation in the Middle East breed uncertainty. It’s symptomatic of the puzzling way you govern. See, uncertainty is one of the factors over which you have control, and I would think you’d want to eliminate that additional element that helps breed problems like higher oil prices. Higher oil means exorbitant gas prices weighing down our economy. Consistency and strength – and greater domestic energy production – will help fix higher gas prices and help heal the economy. But only with leadership. These sorts of problems don’t fix themselves.

It’s unbelievable to me that you spent last week in campaign mode, gallivanting around the country to start raising the billion dollars for your reelection bid that is still 19 months away “while Rome burns.” Our economy is in the tank; jobs are as scarce as ever; you’re asking Congress to let you incur even more unsustainable, immoral, freedom-stealing government debt; and many of our brave men and women in uniform are shaking their heads in disbelief over your befuddled military directions. Yet instead of working with Congress and a wise multitude of advisers to fix some problems, you choose all this campaigning, already? As was recently asked: When do you ever just “roll up your sleeves, unplug the teleprompter” and do the job of governing and administrating for which voters hired you?

I know, I know, granted you will be even busier very soon. After all, golf season kicks into high gear shortly. NBA and NHL brackets await. Summer vacations and that all-consuming campaign whistle stop tour will no doubt slam you. But I would ask, while the rest of us are also busy working, saving, planning ahead, fighting to protect our Constitution, and trying to keep up with where and why you’re spending our Department of Defense funds – I’d ask that you find time to tell Americans the truth about the state of our union and what you are doing to find solutions to our challenges.

This is what a leader sounds like. While reality show “stars” run around looking for the President’s birth certificate, former Massachusetts Governors are explaining away their latest gaffe, and former Speakers of the House are trying to explain why they took hundreds of thousands of dollars from ethanol lobby [again] Sarah Palin is focused on what matters.

This is why Sarah has stated it is way too early to start politicin’ for the 2012 presidential race. We have serious issues right now that must be taken care of. President Obama has us on a road to ruin. America is in bad shape. Our debt to GDP ratio is basically 1:1, a recipe for disaster. Gas prices are through the roof, never mind the United States has the largest fossil fuel reserve on earth. Obama has us in three wars, with absolutely no direction. And that’s just a few of the big things that are going wrong.

It’s bad enough that our nation’s Commander-in-Chief is more interested in playing golf, enjoying lavish vacations, and of course, running for re-election, why is it all of the Republican presidential wannabees are just as bad? Seriously, the GOP hopefuls are so busy playing politics they have no time for the fight in front of them.

Maybe I’m expecting too much. It’s not like any of these Republican show ponies have been out there fighting Obama before!

We need leaders, not candidates. America is in big trouble, and just this once you’d think the usual suspects would put their own political futures on hold, and join in the fight to save her.

As you can tell, I am sick of politics as usual, and sick of the insanity surrounding it. America deserves a no nonsense leader who has her eye on the ball, and not worried about the politics of it all. America deserves someone who actually understands how to lead.

  1. I so hope that she runs. She is the best and just what we need!!!

  2. Well, I’m sure she’d know considering her state is probably the closest to Libya.

  3. And this is what I love about Sarah Palin! That was great, especially the last paragraph. We never hear about what’s going on in Libya anymore. Does anyone have a clue what we’re doing? Are we going to go into Syria next? We can’t continue on this course. We need to be out of it. We don’t even know who we’re helping in Libya! That’s frightening.
