    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Palin was indicating that Obama was making a mistake by his efforts to weaken our military and lower our nuclear stockpile while Putin is building up Russia's military power.

    True, but I doubt they can see with their blinders on. They will believe what ever the media tells them to believe.

    I'm watching the complete video now of Sarah. She's great. Liberals, please don't watch. She will melt your brain.
    That is true, the only thing that upsets the Liberals as much as Sarah Palin is Rush Limbaugh. I hope nobody mentions him on this thread.

    I do think that she implied that, she is the one who commented on Russian empire and stopping a bad man with nuclear weapons. If she were not talking about Russia then why should she talk about this after whining about how she thinks Obama is not doing enough against Putin.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    The quote may be out of context but I don't think Palin was saying nuke Moscow. More in line with former Cold War strategy of insuring the Soviets of complete nuclear annihilation for everyone. Peace through strength that helped win the Cold War without using nukes.

    >" Mutual assured destruction, or mutually assured destruction (MAD), is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction by two opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender. It is based on the theory of deterrence where the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemy's use of those same weapons. The strategy is a form of Nash equilibrium in which neither side, once armed, has any incentive to initiate a conflict or to disarm..."<

    One I do not believe Palin said this.

    When will your own GOP stop editing clips out of context?
    And move the clips around to boot?
    When is it a bridge too far with Palin with you ?

    Which party known as the GOP enforced defense cuts in Sequestration?
    Why is it that when Obama accepts GOP cuts, they then become Obama weakening the Military.?
    Where do spending bills begin ?
