Governor Palin: Apparently President Obama Can’t See Egypt and Libya from His House – Update; Update II: US Ambassador to Libya murdered in Benghazi





It was widely reported Tuesday that large groups of Islamic extremists stormed both the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya, killing one U.S. State Department officer. Governor Palin weighed in via Facebook:

Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy?

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.

- Sarah Palin

 

Update: Flashback to February of 2011, Governor Palin warned about this. Also, in May of that same year, speaking with Greta Van Susteren during the "One Nation" bus tour.

Update II by Doug: U.S. Ambassador Killed in Libya:

The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack in Benghazi on Wednesday, according to a Libyan official, Reuters reports.

The Americans were targeted in an attack in their car, trying to move to a safer venue away from the violent protests that erupted at the U.S. Consulate. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens died of suffocation, while the three other personnel were killed by gunshot wounds, CBS News reports.

U.S. officials have not confirmed the deaths, according to Reuters.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a statement confirming the death of a State Department officer, but did confirm their identity.

"I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in  Benghazi today," Clinton said. "As we work to secure our personnel and  facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers  was killed.  We are heartbroken by this terrible loss.  Our thoughts and  prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this  attack."

The Libyan official told Reuters the U.S. has transported the bodies on a military plane to Tripoli to fly them back to the U.S. The protests broke out due to outrage linked to an American video posted online that is offensive Muslims.

      • bsbutterfly

        • BrianusBerkleianus

          Thanks, bsbutterfly!!

        • DocBarry1

          Fox News should be arranging to have the Governor on a variety of shows today -

          Her Facebook post is what you would expect from a patriot and person who should be our nominee for President

          It is times like these that I am dismayed that Fox News has her – to themselves- she would be all over the TV and as yet, Fox News hasn’t put her on once – what gives

          I have written to Fox News and it is my hope that others follow – we want Gov Palin to speak on this subject throughout the day – put her on

          • pollyatlanta

            Sarah was on BILL O’REILLY last night (Tuesday 9/11) … he finally made it happy but naturally interrupted her often to keep his control.

            • DocBarry1

              I watched it, but this was not the topic and before her Facebook posting
              Also one report stated that the ambassador was dragged through the streets if true why are the networks not covering the truth
              Life is a song – sing it.
              Life is a game – play it.
              Life is a challenge – meet it.
              Life is a dream – realize it.
              Life is a sacrifice – offer it.
              Life is love – enjoy it.
              - Sai Baba

      • Tango Echo

        I seem to remember when asked about that quote "give ‘em Hell Harry", Truman replied (paraphrasing), I don’t give them hell, I give them the truth.

        Truth sure cuts through the crap doesn’t it???

        • BrianusBerkleianus

          Yes!!!

      • DocBarry1

        Agreed and so proud of Gov Palin

    • Dagobomb

      As President Stickless notes, "I’m not a president but I play one on TV."

    • HuntingMoose

      Yes. My president too.

      The real one with balls and not that occupier currently in the WH.

      Now let’s see if healthcareFlipFlop follows the leader or will pander to his precious independents who according to the latest fake CNN poll are only 10% of the voters (or something rediculous like that)

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, HM!!

    • BlueGood

      So Refreshing to hear from Sarah Palin again, when that Mama Grizzly Growls she
      growls for Millions of Americans..

      When O’Buma speaks, he apologizes to Millions of Muslim Brotherhoodys….

      O’Buma is a Limp Noodle compared to Palin…
       

      • pollyatlanta

        Oh how we yearn for her strength of character and grit … no one love America more in the public eye … WHY oh WHY can’t we have her in charge????

      • patriot173

     " 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."

    Well Sarah, it looks like you’re going to have to lend him your nightstick.

    Here’s Mitt’s comment….

    "I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and
    Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi.
    It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not
    to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with
    those who waged the attacks."

    Daaang….I feel sooo much better now.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      LOL, Tencole!!

  • StandProudNow

    The current president will never stand up for America or the people who make it their homeland.

    He wants to destroy this nation.

  • Lakerfanalways

    The moment I read this statement I said out loud "Damn I wish she were President right now" THIS is how a leader leads..this is one kick ass statement, this is the kind of statement I wish Romney had given. She doesn’t hold back on anything..God Bless U Sarah, for saying what we all are feeling

    • TENCOLE

       My feelings exactly. *sigh*

  • IsraeliCojones

    Daaaannng!!!

    Obama is now in a world of hurt.

    And he can’t sit down anymore.

    • colliemum

      That’s exactly as it should be – I hope he needs to keep standing up to eat his waffles until January 21st 2013!

  • 01_Explorer_01

     If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.  LOLOLOLOLO!

    Here’s Mitt’s comment….

    Daaang….I feel sooo much better now.

  • IsraeliCojones

    Hmmmm. Lefty trolls are already invading Sarah’s FB page.

    This post is THAT good.

  • 01_Explorer_01

    Fight like a girl Mr. Namby Pamby commander in chief, Barry.  This FB post is going viral.  Where in the heck is apron strings Mittens?

  • Sentinel34

    There seem to be striking parallels between Obama’s presidency and Carter’s.  Unfortunately, the Reagan of our era has sat this one out.  Does Mitt have it in him to heed Sarah’s advice and ratchet up his game and take the fight to all fronts.

  • myfairlady

    Wow!  Now that’s what I’m talking about–Guts, Brains, Fire in the Belly and a Big Stick!  Thank You Governor Palin!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, myfairlady!!

    Why is it that Sarah Palin is the only national political leader with the guts to call Obama out for being such a wimp and appearing to be a trojan horse for our enemies?
    I almost think Obama wants America to fail.
    Go get him Sarah…. none of the gutless men in the Republican Party are.

    • IsraeliCojones

      I almost think Obama wants America to fail.

      You "almost think" after 4 years like these?

      It’s a certainty like the color of the sky, for me.

      • HuntingMoose

        I wish it was just ‘want’ instead of the reality of actually doing it and it all happens in front of our eyes.

        When I grew up, I could never understand how the german people could fall for that socialist hitler and his evil cronies. These days i understand how that happened all too well.

        • IsraeliCojones

          You’re right.

          He is destroying America.

          Four more years are just unthinkable.

        • everythingispolitics

          Can we please leave the Hitler stuff out? You all wonder why we’re called extreme or fringe.

          • MaMcGriz

            OK, everythingis politics. We’ve heard this kind of thing from you repeatedly, so let’s have a link….a quote…..a bit of proof, OK?

            And please include your defenses of them.

            And by the way, HuntingMoose is right on the money, according to my loved ones who lived through exactly what HM is describing.

            You have shared with us your thoughts and the fact you’re pretty securely employed….as a bureaucrat, if I’m not mistaken. Be advised that many millions of us are NOT securely employed, have NO benefits and NO generous retirement package. We, therefore, do not have the benefit if your ability to ride out another four years of this mad man and his minions. WE face the very real issues of homelessness, hunger and worse. And this is NOT due to any moral inferiority or laziness….it’s due to the gross mismanagement and lawlessness of the people in control of the US government and economy. 

            You’re too quick to judge, and it won’t play well with me. You go ahead and keep your too cool for school approach, but don’t come here and try and shame anyone else into it because that won’t fly.

          • patriot173

             YEAH! THE MARXIST FRAUD IS COPYING HITLER AND STALIN BY IMPOSING HIS DEGENERATE HEALTH MANDATE ON CATHOLICS, JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND ALL PEOPLE OF GOOD FAITH!!!!

          • HuntingMoose

            why should we leave it out while the democrats started doing this repeatedly?

            You sound like a Romney advisor. And it is time to educate everyone about the fact that if anyone has hitler like tendencies, it is not us ‘on the right’ but actually those leftists who infiltrated schools and brainwashed everyone with their Nazi’s were rightwing whereas in fact they were hardcore control freak socialist leftists.

            It is the democratic party who have been the racists and fought to keep slavery (and still do in a different way). It is the democratic party who divide and start class warfare like hitler did.

            No. Don’t coward away because some alynski tactics try to label us for something we are not. Fight back by e posing their lies and deceit.

    • jester2939

      Sarah Palin is not a politician at heart. She’s honest, says what she thinks and believes, and acts accordingly. She can speak her mind because she’s not afraid of the truth. She also doesn’t care about focus groups and polls. Very few people are confident enough in their beliefs (or don’t have any beliefs) to speak out as honestly as she does.

      • StacyDrake

        Very well said…

      • lyndaaquarius

        all that is true except she is a brilliant politician at heart. A great stateswoman and leader as well. kinda annoying that she’s not our President.  Remember she’s young.

        • jester2939

          Yes, she has amazing political instincts! 

        • everythingispolitics

          8 years of Romney. Up next is Ryan.

          • lyndaaquarius

            no,no not 8 years of Romney.  4 will do.  Ryan is brilliant and a great patriot and honorable. But Governor Palin is a genuine leader in the tradition of General George Washington. Her judgement,courage and political savvy are unmatched. She has a "servant"s heart" as well. Men like Romney and Ryan work for a leader like Palin.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Right on, Philip!!

    • patriot173

       The marxist usurper of the presidency IS destroying America—he’s a closet moooslim!!!

    • bejocy

      almost?

  • jester2939

    "Mr. President, GAME ON!"

    Uhhh, Mitt, are you paying attention? Sometimes you have to fight like a girl!

  • Gelston

    OMGosh, she landed so many swings of the nightstick that Obama will be black and blue until after the election.
    BAM!!!

    • bsbutterfly

      We can only hope so!! Sarah is the only one brave enough to call him out. GO SARAH !!!!! 

      • Betsey_Ross

        Which makes it doubly effective.  The Newtster was just on CNN doing the same.   Piling on is terribly appropriate in this situation from all Americans.  This is unacceptable in a leader.  Hillary (looking not much like a leader) was standing near the Once during his pathetic press conference.  Hillary is as much to blame as Obama.  Neither one has enough sense to get out of the rain and Huma is looking more and more like she has American blood on her hands, too.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Good one, friend Gelston!!

  • colint

    WOW

  • Gelston

    and I thought the worst whack that Obama took today was that look Netanyahu gave him on Drudge.
    Sarah made even Netanyahu look like an amateur.
    My Oh My
