President Barack Obama and Democrats have shamelessly ginned up the phony “war on women,” but former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin used a passage from Hillary Clinton’s new book to remind Americans that Obama’s campaign actually fired the first shot in the real war on women.
Palin Tweeted an excerpt from Clinton’s new book on Monday and wrote, “Look who fired the 1st shot in the real ‘war on women’ . Hint: it wasn’t the GOP.”
In the passage about the 2008 campaign, Clinton said the Obama campaign “immediately issued a dismissive statement and reached out to me in the hopes I would follow suit” after Palin was selected as the vice presidential nominee.
“I didn’t think that made political sense, and it didn’t feel right,” Hillary Clinton wrote. “So I said no, telling them there’d be plenty of time for criticism. A few hours later, the Obama campaign reversed itself and congratulated Governor Palin.”
