All hell is breaking loose in Egypt and all President Obama is interested in doing is riding his bicycle and playing golf, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told me.
“It’s sad for America,” Palin said, calling the president’s handling of the crisis dithering. “Literally all hell seems to be breaking loose and President Obama is in Martha’s Vineyard having a gay old time, riding his bike, partying it up.”
Palin said it’s time for the president to pull all funding from Egypt until the violence stops.
“Until there is a crackdown on this atrocious violence, they should not be receiving aid or weaponry,” she said. “We are contributing to the deadly chaos that is going to lead to even more hell breaking loose.”
Palin said Obama’s handling of the crisis in Egypt has been appalling and she said it’s beyond time for him to exert authority and leadership.
“It’s sad for our allies and sad for anyone who believes that America can still exert some positive influence for good in this world without unnecessary intervention,” she said. “We can use a less than dithering message from our less than dithering president.”
Palin said she suspects one of the reasons Obama’s handling of the crisis has been “dithering” can be found in a speech he delivered in 2010.
“Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower,” Obama told a gathering at a nuclear security summit in Washington, D.C. “And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.”
Palin blasted Obama’s comments.
“As if we didn’t like being a superpower,” Palin said. “That’s one of the things that makes America exceptional. It’s respect. It’s the idea that we would usher in peace through strength across the globe. We were looked up to for that.”
