One week after her last appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Gov. Palin returned to the program Thursday night to ask, “How’s that apology tour working out for you, Mr. President?”
The query came after host Sean Hannity brought up the subject of the Obama Administration’s purchase of airtime on Pakistani television to run ads condemning the anti-Islamic video “The Innocence of Muslims.” The administration has claimed that the video is the main reason for more than a week of anti-American demonstrations which have resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate told host Sean Hannity that if the Obama Administration continues to “wave the white flag of surrender” rather than stand for freedom, the U.S. may have to bring our troops back from the Middle East: “We’re wasting blood and treasure. I say, no more.”
The former Alaska governor described the policies of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the troubled region as “the antithesis” of President Reagan’s doctrine of peace through strength. Obama’s approach is “weakening America,” and the U.S. is now seen as a “paper tiger” around the world. When former Egyptian president Mubarak was overthrown, “we were told the Muslim Brotherhood was harmless and would seek to be our ally,” she recalled.
Governor Palin offered a backhanded compliment to President Obama, saying he was “masterful at dodging questions,” and she added that the press, instead of doing its job, simply covers for him.
