Palin Mocked in 2008 for Warning Putin May Invade Ukraine if Obama Elected

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his “indecision” and “moral equivalence” may encourage Russia’s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

Palin said then:

After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.

For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine.

In light of recent events in Ukraine and concerns that Russia is getting its troops ready to cross the border into its neighboring nation, nobody seems to be laughing at or dismissing those comments now.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and “this is an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

    Sarah’ right again!
    Obama is not qualified to be Presinink. In fact, he wasn’t even qualified to be a Senator. He’s a loser and a liar and needs to be impeached for his over-reach on his executive orders. Congress needs to intervene and soon.

      Jerry, they’re all paid off by the same handlers. That’s why nothing gets done. Of course the few exceptions, who try to do their jobs. are ridiculed and called names. The vast majority prefer to line their pockets. What they cannot grasp is that when their handlers are finished with them, it ain’t gonna be pretty. They also can’t seem to grasp that the world they’re leaving to their own grand children, monied or not, will be barren.

    Eerie and kind of scary how she predicted this. She must be a witch or something. Too bad W, Dick and Rummy didn’t come to her for WMD advice.

      @I Seigel … Palin doesn’t have any special powers unless you compare her to the average leftist liberal who most likely has an IQ below 80, so she probably would be considered a genius compared to them!

    2. Jrmags says:

      @I Seigel … BTW, if you need help looking up on the internet what the Clinton administration said to the incoming Bush administration about Saddam’s WMD’s then you can ask Palin to help you! Other than that, I would agree with you that W, Dick and Rummy should have listened to Palin instead of any Clinton admin liberal democrat!

    Sarah is right again Liberals that made fun of Her eat crow!

  • jenersea says:

    Yes I remember when Sarah Palin was the only one with a set of balls to take on the Obozo, it certainly was not the RHINO McCain who lost his pucker and surrendered before fighting. Palin should have been the one in front seat while McCain was relegated to the sidelines without even being in the 2nd seat. Amazing how all the pretenders are showing their true light these days with McCain and Romney influencing Brewer there the other day.

    The obama Administration and John Kerry do not have a clue as to America’s Foreign Policy and the rest of the World knows it! They continue to dismantle America and will not stop until America is bankrupt, or until they turn it into a Third World country!!! Palin was correct and has more Common Sense than obama & Kerry!

    The US used to be a nation whose word could deter other nations from doing bad things. Now they just look at the US and grin, then do what they want. I guess Obama really has fundamentally changed the country.

  • ray says:

    So who is wrong here? could it be Hounshell? These people care not about America, they only care about personal or party power. They would sacrifice the whole country to get to be King for a few years. Despicable.

  • ChristCrusader says:

    And 0bama continues to bungle from the stand point of America’s interests. I’m sure he’s “progressing” as he wants to towards his idealogical interests …

  • Gnowark says:

    At least Blake Hounshell: it’s NOT as far-fetched as the never-employed Choom-Gang junior senator from Illinois being “Peter-Principled” into the WH. And yet…
