Liberals are bristling over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s 2008 prediction that Russian President Vladimir Putin would one day invade Ukraine. On her Facebook page last weekend, she wrote she was “derided" for predicting that the Ukraine would be invaded should then-Sen. Barack Obama be elected.
It was the mainstream media’s avowed goal to destroy the 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential candidate’s credibility.
"Yes, I could see this one from Alaska," Palin posted on Facebook, referring to look-a-like comedian Tina Fey’s joke that the media actually credited to Palin herself.
"Here’s what this 'stupid' 'insipid woman' predicted back in 2008," Palin said. "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."
The former governor and vice-presidential candidate’s posting has been shared by over 16,000 Facebook users and "liked" by more than 70,000 as of last Sunday morning.
Palin made her remarkably on-the-mark comments shortly after she warned her supporters to "gird your loins" because, if he (Obama) was elected, international leaders could test or try to take advantage of the young president.
Liberals had a bad day on Facebook.
