Sarah Palin And Mitt Romney Proven Right By Current Events

One of the worst traits of liberals is not their positions they have on issues.  Everyone has a right to their opinion, as wrong as they may be.  The worst trait is their obnoxious, arrogant, know-it-all mocking of conservatives who have different opinions then theirs.  There are no two better examples of that than how the left treated Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney for their positions on foreign policy issues when they were running for vice-president and president, respectively.

Common Sense Over Ivy League
Sarah Palin was mocked consistently during her run for vice-president for supposedly saying that her knowledge on Russia was that she could see it from her house. That was how Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey caricatured her.  The real truth is, if that even matters to liberals, Sarah Palin never said that.

Labeling the charge FALSE  snopes.com states, "So it is that one of the quotes most strongly associated with former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin is the exclamation "I can see Russia from my house!" even though she didn't actually utter that phrase during the campaign.  The basis for the line was Governor Palin's 11 September 2008 appearance on ABC News, her first major interview after being tapped as the vice-presidential nominee. During that appearance, interviewer Charles Gibson asked her what insight she had gained from living so close to Russia, and she responded: "They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska".   

In the presidential election of 2008, VP Palin was mocked incessantly as a dumb, red necked fool for her take on Russia and her criticizing Senator Obama's lack of seriousness about what Russia's advancement into Georgia meant.  Check out the amazing prescience of Sarah Palin's words in this video, from the 2008 campaign, that should wipe the smug smirk off every liberals face who mocked her.

A Good Man
The second example of an arrogant, smug, elitist, know it all mocking attitude comes from none other than the one and only president Barack Obama himself.  During the 2012 presidential debates, listen to the smug Barack Obama mocking Mitt Romney's calling Russia our number one geo-political foe [and notice how Obama changes Romney's words from foe to threat which Romney did not say].   Once again, just as with Sarah Palin's words, current events have proved Mitt Romney as amazingly prescient.




By the way, Mr. president, you talk of Al-Qaida, really?  I think you better inform your Secretary of State who thinks that climate change is America's biggest national security threat, not Al-Qaida. 

I believe that both Sarah Palin, as a vice presidential candidate in  2008, and Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012, had a far greater understanding of foreign policy issues and the American leadership needed in America's best national security interests than Barack Obama or Joe Biden have ever shown.

Yes, Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney were mocked at by the left during their campaigns, but they are the ones who have been proven right by current events.    It is those who mocked them who have been proven wrong and that is bad news for our country as they are the ones who are in power.

Here is praying that the judgement of the American people will become clearer in 2014 and 2016.
