Boy, that Sarah Palin sure is a dunce, isn’t she? Just ask “real journalist” Blake Hounshell, who was quite tickled when Palin said this back in 2008:

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.

Seriously, how stupid could she be? More from Hounshell:

As we’ve said before, this is an extremely far-fetched scenario. And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel.

Worth noting that foreign policy expert Matt Yglesias also dismissed the idea of Russia getting heavily involved in Ukraine:

Fast-forward to today, with Russian troops marching into Crimea. Hounshell ought to be a sputtering mess right about now, trying to figure out how he could’ve been so wrong. Palin, on the other hand …

Damn straight, she was.

Good. Hounshell deserves to get called out for his condescending douchiness.

Palin herself took a moment to hit back at those who had so gleefully derided her:

From Palin’s Facebook page:

Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as “an extremely far-fetched scenario” by the “high-brow” Foreign Policy magazine. Here’s what this “stupid” “insipid woman” predicted back in 2008: “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.”

Bam!

Logic would dictate that Hounshell and co. feel like tools. But it’s tough for lapdogs to ‘fess up to their mistakes.

That’d be nice … but, well, spinners gotta spin. If Hounshell (or Yglesias) decides to address it at all, the headline will probably be something more like this:

        • Ryan Johnson

          @Finrod:disqus To be fair (this should be my catchphrase!) I was never that; I was in that “I don’t want eight more years of Bush” crowd. But I never considered myself a liberal. Plus, there wasn’t much thought going into my vote beyond “Can I truly trust either candidate? Since this is my very first time getting to vote, I may as well use it historically and vote for the black guy.” But that was when I was 18. When I was 22 voting for Obama again was a lot more reluctant, but as can be seen I am surely paying for both times.

          • schveiguy

            I never liked Palin or McCain (or Bush really), and I didn’t care for the 2008 election. I voted for some random 3rd party. I wasn’t into politics at all back then, Obamacare changed that for me.

            If I could go back, I’d vote for McCain, even though he sucks (still does). But here is what I want to know: You reluctantly voted for Obama in 2012. Why? By 2010, when the health care law was being shoved through, and we in blue-MA sent Scott Brown to stop it without success, it seemed like if we didn’t fix the balance of power, we would be in real trouble. In 2012, I expected he would not win a second term, based on the state of the country. Who knew Romney would be so bad? Oh yeah, most of us did…

            I can admit that it seems like things are not as bad as everyone predicted they would be if he won again (yet?), but clearly Romney would have been a better choice. What made the decision for you to go with Obama again?

          • usaok59

            Don’t forget, the election was stolen! Our fearless leader got 110% of the votes in some precincts. Can you say voter fraud?

          • schveiguy

            Many times liberals use statistics to mislead. My favorite was when Obama said “We use 20% of the worlds oil, yet only have 2% of the world’s confirmed oil reserves.” This sentence makes it seem like we would run out of oil in a matter of months if we only depended on our own stores, when in fact, the percentages were for 2 different (vastly different) numbers. Plus, the ‘confirmed’ qualifier means oil we have already drilled wells for and confirmed the quantity, making his next point “we shouldn’t drill” beg the question.

            But in this case, the percentages are similarly incorrect, even though the numbers were put out by the government and not conservatives. The percentage was the total number of votes, divided by the number of PRE-REGISTERED voters, in counties where registration was allowed at the poll. What this means is a very large number of people registered to vote and voted at the polls. So their numbers counted in the numerator, but not the denominator.

            This doesn’t necessarily mean there was no fraud in the registration itself, but the percentage itself is not an indicative value. People did not vote multiple times, and nobody who voted was not registered.

            I had just forgotten the details that I mentioned in the post you replied to, about how I didn’t really have much faith for either of the candidates.

            though it may not seem that way when you read this part

            the first time I voted for Obama I was 18, I thought it was time for a “change,” I “didn’t want eight more years of Bush,” it was also my first time voting so I figured what better way to use my first time voting than to vote for the black guy? How fortunate was I to be able to use my first vote for an even more historic first?

            That sentiment was also in there, somewhere. It was a combination of distrust and naivete.

          • schveiguy

            Thanks for sharing that. You are in a (hopefully not unique) position of being someone who voted for Obama a second time, yet is against him now. So most of the liberal claims of racism, sexism, whateverism, that they would normally ascribe to an anti-liberal would be pretty easily debunked against someone in your position. I was very curious as to your reasoning. Thanks for coming back to the good side :) And I hope we have much better options in 2 years.

          • Ryan Johnson

            same here. Actually, the other part I left out in my story now that I think of it; when I heard of Hermain Cain, but heard he was on the other side, my thought process was “Hmm. If I can vote for a brother other than Obama, I’ll do it. But I need to see what he’s about first (his policies, promises etc).” I WAS intent on researching more thoroughly the second time around.

I, as many other conservatives did, knew the one was a socialist and that his plans were to usurp the constitution and fundamentally change the United States into his view of what it should be. And, now we are seeing much of what his plans were then, come to fruition.

      Agreed it will make no difference with the left but do you think it’s any more likely that some of the “intellectual elites” on the right might give Palin her due?

      Palin’s opinion ignores the history of the region…which if she knew, would not have her saying this. Then again, few Americans on either side are aware of the political history of the region. (The areas where Putin has invaded are ethnically Russian, but he has not touched any portions of Ukraine that are not.)

        Her prediction:

        “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.”

        http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2008/10/22/russia_might_invade_ukraine_if_obama_wins_palin_warns

        She also predicted Obama’s soft response.

        The events of the day:

        “Armed men described as Russian troops took control of key airports in
        Crimea on Friday and Russian transport planes flew into the strategic
        region, Ukrainian officials said, an ominous sign of the Kremlin’s iron
        hand in Ukraine.”

        • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

          If this had been western Ukraine that was invaded by Russia, instead of the Crimean Peninsula, I would have agreed with Palin. But eastern Ukrainians (which includes Crimea) are for all intents and purposes Russians (except for citizenship). As such, to label what is happening here as an invasion is really stretching the definition. Russian forces are being welcomed with open arms by the local population. In keeping in mind the history of the region, I would further argue that not only is Sarah Palin wrong, but so is most of America, on grounds of: ill-informed and lack of cause-and-effect demonstrated.

            Would this be the Ukrainian port of Crimea? Are ethnic Russians (descendants of Russians settled by order of Stalin) who pay taxes to Ukraine and have a Ukrainian passport exempt from loyalty? Yes, I am aware of the long, bloody history of eastern Europe. I am also aware that this is the wedge Putin needs to absorb Ukraine for once and for all.

            Would Russian troops who just happened to be welcomed by an Alaskan population still be regarded as an invasion?

          • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

            These eastern Ukrainians have had it with their western neighbors; they are preparing to secede. Russia and Alaska is not a valid comparison because Russia doesn’t have military bases in Alaska (while they do in Crimea). Whether or not Putin goes for the western half remains to be seen, but if they do, expect action either there or in Syria (which is an ignored but relevant issue here).

            BTW, they’re not descendants of those settled there by order of Stalin—it has been that way since the days of the tsars.

          • http://whatandever.blogspot.com/ Osumashi Kinyobe

            It doesn’t matter how the descendants of Russian settlers feel about sovereign Ukrainian territory. What matters is how Putin feels about it and it is this:

            “Russia’s parliament approved a motion to use the country’s military in
            Ukraine after a request from President Vladimir Putin as protests in
            Russian-speaking cities turned violent Saturday, sparking fears of a
            wide-scale invasion.”

            You don’t see Alaska as sovereign American territory? Okay…

            “The leadership of the USSR was as resolutely Russian in its identity as were
            the tsars. Except for the occasional tactical respite, Russian remained the
            only acceptable language. Russocentric history, culture, and religion (when
            tolerated) were the pillars of society and any deviation was prosecuted.
            Anything Ukrainian was prosecuted. After the wanton slaughter of Ukrainians
            in 1932 – 33, huge areas of Ukraine were re-populated by Russian settlers,
            to a large extent accounting for some of the Russophilic strongholds in
            Eastern Ukraine today.”

    Sarah Palin is the greatest thing going on the ‘Right’ side of politics right now.

    She is the new Ronald Reagan.

    People dismissed Reagan in his early political career (especially post-Governorship), and people dismiss Mrs. Palin now in much the same way.

    When she becomes President, I hope she moves Camp David to the West Side of Alaska with a perfect view of Russia from the porch steps.

      But, I doubt Sarah would have been elected. No one but O could have been elected that year. For one reason. He was black.

      Call me racist anyone who wants to, but it’s true.

      The only hope we have in 2016 will be a woman front runner. Especially if Hillary runs.

      People in this country are itching to elect “firsts.” First black President. First woman President. I feel it in my very fiber.

      If the right nominates a white straight man, we will lose in 2016. Period. Mark my words.

    Sarah Palin is a very intuitive woman who speaks her mind and is usually spot on. I believe she would be a better female President compared to Hillary Clinton. Her honesty can be trusted and I doubt if she will ever say anything close to Hillary’s “What difference does it make anyway?” statement referring to the Bengazi murders. I have no hesitation casting a vote for Sarah in 2016 if she runs!

  • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

    This will sound controversial, but I’m going to say that Palin isn’t right and make a case as follows, noting the history of the region (about which I’m not sure many Americans know unless they’re either Ukrainian-born or know someone who is; I personally know 2). Here goes:

    What is today Ukraine is really portions of what was once Poland and Austria-Hungary as late as before World War 2. Those areas comprise the western part of Ukraine…that which is generally pro-EU; most of its residents are ethnic Poles, Hungarians, or Austrians, as in the 1940s, Ukraine’s boundaries were extended westward into areas that were previously part of those empires. They, however, have never shared much in common with the rest of Ukraine. The eastern and northern portions of Ukraine have historically shared a culture and religion with Russia, and these people are ethnically Russian.

    Where Putin invaded, Sevastopol, the major cultural center of Crimea, is in eastern Ukraine, which has historically been ethnically Russian. Because of that, there has been almost no resistance because other than their country of citizenship, they have almost everything in common. Ukraine, both as an SSR post-WWII, and today, has really been an amalgamation of vastly different cultures. Eastern Ukrainians are embracing Putin with open arms (because ethnically, he’s one of them) and would love a divorce from western Ukraine. Because of this, I saw this as happening no matter what.

    There is also the additional factor of natural resources (which is also directly related to the Syrian conflict., which I’m not addressing as it’s beyond the scope of the discussion). Western Europe is not blessed to have critical natural resources needed to keep those countries warm during the winter. As such, they must rely on Russia for natural gas, and those countries of NATO would not be in a position to help the United States in any push-back against Putin, as he could simply turn off the gas and freeze Europe.

    Now, if Putin’s forces move into western Ukraine toward Kyiv (Kiev) without some Western push-back, only then would I give Palin credit, as only then would Russian forces meet resistance.

    • narciso

      They didn’t think there would be a new Orange Revolution or that there would be pushback, as with her warnings about granting ‘miranda rights’ to terrorists, like Moazzem Begg, Al Shehri, Bin Qumu,

      • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

        Unclear at this time is if Putin actually ordered any of the violence in western Ukraine, or if it was just Yanukovych’s attempt to hold power (Yanukovych derived his support from the ethnically Russian portion of Ukraine – into which Russian tanks and forces have rolled with little local resistance). Note that Putin has not invaded western Ukraine at this time…I would change my stance if Putin does. Vis a vis rights to terrorists though, if that became a problem, it would not been Obama’s fault, but that of a judge ignoring founders’ intent (which is that those in the USA whose presence is not both legal and voluntary have no rights even in civilian court).

        There is a conservative argument against Sarah Palin’s thinking in these two cases. There may not always be one, but sometimes there is. Here, however, that argument can’t be made without knowing the region’s history and of what and of whom today’s Ukraine is composed. My thinking is that eastern and northern Ukraine have resented the western portion, and the political division of Ukraine is…with only 1 or 2 exceptions (of 54 administrative jurisdictions in Ukraine total), that political divide between pro-Russian and pro-Western Ukrainians is very neat.

On a side note, if the northeast and West Coast continue making it difficult for certain industries to continue business in those regions, then the South(and Midwest) will indeed rise in economic status.

    A very small FRACTION OF REALITY

  • dan9el

    ANOTHER small FRACTION OF REALITY
    THE SARAH PALIN FACTOR

    Although there are somes,…perhaps most of them liberals, wishing it…that Gov Sarah Palin does not go into the presidential race, the reality is that the expectations and metrics are out there dime a dozen,… for Sarah Palin has ALL liberals, number of rino-type / sold-out old school classic rancid republicans,…the main-media news community, the entire groups of Obama worshipers,..ALL OF THEM…are afraid (if not monumentally terrorized ) to the point of desintegration.

    Not running?….actually, nobody knows that.

    Let’s be brief on this , shall we?

    The ruth is that specials (selfish) interests are the fundamental rock for ‘politics as always’ there in Washington and every place else where politicians of no scruples are in charged.

    In simple words CORRUPTION, DECEPTION AND FRAUD are the pillars for the current government structure there in Washington.
    It is very well known how effective the good governor is on cleaning corruption in goverment structure (she did it in Alaska, she did not?)

    The 2010 vote did not serve the desired expectations,….many so caller republicans really turn to be sold-our associates for the democrat factions so on 2014 and 2016 we have to vote in very fulminant manner otherwise we loose what is left of the country to the CORRUPTED AND FRAUDULENT ORAGANIZATION NOW IN PLACE (THE CHICAGO CORRUPTED POLITICAL GROUP… BETTER KNOWN AS THE OBAMA GANG,and old school republicans associates….but the outcome may not be the desired one.

    The american public is well aware about what is going on with the current admininstration, – their roots, they agenda,tendencies and purposes…;and the admininstration there in Washington are made of liberals and rino-type republicans with common interests for their own purposes where the american public is secondary.

    Sarah Palin presidency represents the end of the corrupted political system there in Washington. The leaders there know that their small world of corruption will come to its end and the american public will not to be cheated any longer.

    Of this, liberals and rino-type old school republicans are not afraid but terrorized.

    The people knows, we need better leaders for our nation, and the classic old school republican group (GOP) is not coming out with the best of candidates…we have seriously to call-in the ones we all know will make the real difference.

    We all very well know who THE OBAMA GANG AND THE OLD SCHOOL OF RINO-TYPE REPUBLICANS ARE AFRAID AND TERRORIZED OF, don’t we?…yes, Sarah Palin.

    Should she decides to run for presidency, she definitely will win.
    Input anyone? Opinions welcome.

      Good point. When Obama selected Biden, he praised him as the smartest man in Congress when it comes to foreign affairs – then later Clinton and Kerry as next in line for the crown of diplomat of the millennium.

      The day Obama selected Biden, the McCain camp released this quote: “There has been no harsher critic of Barack Obama’s lack of experience than Joe Biden. Biden has denounced Barack Obama’s poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing — that Barack Obama is not ready to be president,”

  • Diggur

    The thing that I find ironic is that most of the problems that we’re facing were entirely predictable. Of course, a person has to be paying attention. Informed people in this country have been shouting from the rooftops about Obamacare, loss of liberties, Obama’s disasterous foreign policy, etc., and the low information voters have been hurling insults and calling us conspiracy theorists. Tragically, we’ve been right. For people who are paying attention, these issues are as obvious as Godzilla invading Tokyo – you just can’t help but see the handwriting on the wall. Low information voters and people who are being bought with entitlement money are how the Democrats have managed to push their Fascist agenda.

    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the sound of their voice but by the content of their character.”

  • Patricia Stovall

    I liked Sarah Palin from the onset of her emergence on the national scene. I did not for one moment think she was stupid. My daughter who is conservative, fell for the liberal media’s lie in labeling her as being dumb. I also want to state to everyone calling Obama dumb or stupid that he is far from stupid. He knows exactly what he is doing. It is his agenda to destroy the America we once knew. He is not stupid but he is evil. As a Christian he makes me think of how easily the anti-christ will be excepted by people. This man came out of nowhere, we still know little about him (the truth) yet millions got behind him, some fools adored him (some still do). I truly mourn for what America was and I honestly pray for my grandchildren because I don’t see any good thing coming down the road for their future. I know God says if we would humble ourselves and pray, He would hear and heal our land, but, from where I sit I think it is too late. We have become too haughty in our national thought in many ways. We allow such perversions to take place in the name of tolerance, and call evil good. We as a nation are being judged for our national sins of the last 50+ years. Hang on cause the ride is going to get much worse if we don’t repent. Our elected officials care not for what “We the people” want. They are out to line their pockets as deeply as they possibly can on our dime. I was once fiercely patriotic, now I am ashamed of what we have allowed ourselves to become as a nation. I love America, but I despise our government. I also not longer believe that our votes matter because think about who actually tabulated the votes for the last election and where those votes were being counted. I believe Obama’s approval rating was less than 50% at the time of the election, yet he won. Our Congress, both House and Senate are lifelong jobs instead of what the founder’s intended it to be. Nothing will change it short of a second Revolution, which would be very difficult considering how in order to own a firearm you are required to register it with the very people who think that instead of their being your servants are your lords. Sad state of affairs this is. We might like for Sarah Palin to run for the WH but the press will once again set out to destroy both her and her family. Was it really necessary to say cruel things about her children? Would she want to put her family through that again? Yet nothing about what a slut Obama’s mama was was mentioned.

  • Richard Nightwood

    This is worse than Carter, this is something else, and it’s worse because there’s no Reagan waiting in the wings.

    The truly sad part in all this. We have the weakest president ever. Putin makes him his bitch and the libtards stick their head up his butt to try and hide from reality.

  • Sarandipity44

    Romney & Palin are both being proven right over and over. Romney predicted Syria, they laughed at him. So many of his predictions are becoming realities. Sadly, the people who elected obama won’t notice, and we’re all the worse off because they elected a lawless narcissist.

    • Diggur

      Romney also predicted that the sequester would go into effect, and Obama scoffed and said that it would never happen. How come the media never shows those clips?

      • SisterMary

        Because they want to be included in all the press events at the WH?

        • Diggur

          You’re probably right, but this is one of the things that makes me think that even FOX doesn’t have the best interests of the country at heart. They could so be calling Obama on the things that he’s doing. But no one ever does.

          • SisterMary

            Well, in all fairness, they do try. And then they’re lambasted on the alphabet channels and on the Senate floor for “lying” to the American public. I do think the worm is starting to turn a little bit, albeit slowly. Agonizingly slowly.

    “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.”

    It is almost like the Russians and Chinese have an ability to observe Western patterns of political behavior, then be patient and use that knowledge when it is to their advantage.

    Anyway that was in 2008 … 5 whole years ago – ancient history on the Democrat timeline. I wonder if there is any correlation between Obama, Clinton and Kerry mentally whitewashing a century of communist nations invading and subjugating bordering countries and not expecting this from Putin?

          The problem is too many people believed Bill Clinton when he said no one could turn an economy around in one term. So give them another. They always like to forget Ronald Reagan’s accomplishments.

          In the end though people get the government they deserve. If they are going to put identity politics, and cult of personality ahead of their own self interest, they made their bed’s they can lie in them.

      All the Russians and Chinese had to see was Obama making drastic cuts in the defense budget. With the cuts in the budget and our military still in Afghanistan; Putin knew Obama wouldn’t do anything if the Russians went into the Ukraine

  • Parsley

    Not to detract from Sarah Palin’s foreign policy astuteness to vulnerable regions, but I don’t see how recent events in the Ukraine can be characterized as “Russia invading the Ukraine.”

    Put in the context of destabilization plans put in place in Libya, Syria and then the Ukraine… Russia moved its troops to protect a region of people of largely Russian heritage. Smart move as Libya and Syria can’t be nice places to live presently due to the “destabilize, occupy, and loot” schemes afoot.

        So you choose to ignore Victoria Nuland’s leaked phone call on Feb 6th, 2014 as evidence of the US meddling in Ukraine’s elections? Put it in context of the “destabilizize and pillage” path the US/IMF have been on—you might see what is happening and not resort to Regan-era “Big Red.”

          What does your path of thinking have to do with Putin going into the Ukraine? There is no way you’re thinking that Putin and our gov’t are together in any way. Or that Putin is on some kind of rescue mission. Putin? KGB Putin? This is an opportune moment and he will take it.

          • Parsley

            No, Renny. The US and Russia are not “together in any way.” Pay attention, Renny. The US has been messing in other countries, Renny.

            Go read about Syria, Renny. US supported Al-Qaeda to destabilize it further… likely as a backdoor to Iran (our “frenemy forever” wants to wage war there).

            Russia blocked that.

            Ukraine is a strategic move, Renny, enroute to another MiddleEast conflict by way of Syria/Iran.

            Try to pay attention, Renny.

    .. Call me cynical or maybe oblivious to cracked logic, but why didn’t GW Bush send in the cavalry when Russia invaded Georgia, might it have something to do with Russia having the second biggest nuclear stockpile on the planet and the concept that Putin might have been as gung ho as cowboy George proved to be?

    What would the great mystic soothsayer have done if she and McCain had won, for a start McCain ran on never leaving Iraq a war that cost the economy $4 trillion even before you add in the ongoing cost of veteran care.

    Secondly he also said the US will never leave Afghanistan if he was elected and he knew where bin Laden was hiding and he’d follow him to the gates of hell to get him. How patriotic of him not to share the location of bin Laden with anybody in the government or military and BTW, they found him in Pakistan a place that McCain insisted should never have its sovereignty invaded by the US.

    Thirdly, we’d be in our sixth year of war with Iran, a far better armed nation than Iraq with a far bigger population that has a far more hostile terrain to fight in due to the fact that it covered with mountain ranges, a virtual Vietnam war in redux that would have been fought over inch by inch for years with insurgents flooding in from Syria, the Muslim East Caucus regions of Russia and Iraq.

    And what would have happened if McCain was president, would the people of the Ukraine not have revolted throwing out a very corrupt oligarch from the presidency because McCain?

    Would the cranky old warmonger launch Nukes as a first response seeing he never saw a war he didn’t fall head over heels in love with or would he also feel that diplomacy might be so much better than extinction.

    George Bush famously said about Putin “I looked into his eyes and saw his soul”. Are we to assume that Bush could see anything rational or sane lurking in there, seeing he spent his life as living proof that he himself was bereft of both rationale and sanity?

    Let’s get real, Palin has the cognitive dissonance of an angry prepubescent teen that is all about hair, makeup and snide remarks about people she knows she is intellectually inferior too. She would have been the annoying cheerleader for McCain war forever inc.

    She might just be the least intellectually curious person to ever run for a high political position, someone who thought that Africa was a country, someone who couldn’t tell you without reading it off a teleprompter what continent the Ukraine is on.

    So once again, would she have been all for a nuclear showdown over Georgia or the Ukraine and when McCain ridiculously said we’re all Georgians now, I wonder if she even realized that there was a country called Georgia?
