Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin believes that President Barack Obama’s actions — or lack thereof — show that he is “in over his head” as the country’s chief executive.
Noting that Obama golfs, vacations, passes the buck and points fingers during domestic and international crises if he is not distancing himself even more from them, Palin said on Monday’s Hannity on Fox News that Obama is “so far… in over his head” because he was merely a community organizer with “no executive experience” and “no resume at all” before becoming president.
Speaking about the border crisis, Palin said Obama is “very disconnected to what people are going through in real life.” Palin has said that Obama’s lawlessness on illegal immigrant was the tipping point for her to call for impeachment because illegal immigrant impacts American workers — native-born of all backgrounds and races and legal immigrants. Palin reiterated that Obama was in “a border state when the invasion started erupting and chose instead to go to fundraisers.”
Palin said Obama embraces the idea of “shirking back” from some of the most important developments in the world, and that is why the vacuum is being “filled by evil men.” She said she hope more candidates who believe in America’s exceptionalism around the globe can be elected in the midterm elections.
After saying that Obama’s time in the White House has showed that he is merely a “community organizer with no real responsibilities,” as she warned during the 2008 campaign, Palin mentioned how different Obama is from Ronald Reagan, who “called out evil and didn’t ask for flexibility” and ended up winning the Cold War without firing a bullet.
“Such a difference in the mindset,” Palin said.
In light of recent events in Ukraine, host Sean Hannity said Palin does not get enough credit for accurately predicting during the 2008 campaign — to the mockery and derision of the so-called enlightened eggheads in the foreign policy establishment – that Putin may invade Ukraine if Obama were elected president.
