Maybe someone should tell Obama that Vladimir Putin is a Tea Party member. Then he might actually start taking him seriously.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a man known for wrestling bears while President Barack Obama is known for wearing mom jeans.
“People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil,” Palin said to Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. “They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”
Palin’s comments came just days after Obama was photographed in the Oval Office sporting denim during a 90-minute phone call with Putin.
America is not a country that the rest of the world wants to emulate “because of Obama’s weak leadership, leading from behind,” Palin said. Other countries are taking advantage of America’s weakness, she added, caused by Obama’s failure to understand “peace through strength.”
“Anybody who carries the common-sense gene knows that Putin doesn’t change his stripes.”
Needless to say the comments at the Politico are a raging cesspool of Palin hate. What a surprise.
