Nukes best to contain Russia: Sarah Palin

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland--Sarah Palin offered unsolicited advice Saturday to U.S. President Barack Obama on containing Russian aggression, saying “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.”

The Republican former vice presidential candidate used a predominantly crass tone throughout her appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

But she hit home by attacking what she called a feckless Obama foreign policy that she said has helped embolden Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Failing to show peace through strength has allowed some “very, very, very bad dudes (to) gain ground,” said Palin, who remains a darling of the far-right.

Obama “would gut our arsenal while he allows others — enemies — to enrich theirs,” she said.

“Mr. President, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.”

The comments follow Russia's invasion of neighboring Ukraine last month, action that sent tensions soaring and U.S.-Russia relations to perhaps their lowest point since the end of the Cold War.

The remark may have sounded flippant, but it was red meat to conservatives mindful of similar language used by the head of the National Rifle Association, America's largest gun lobby.

In the aftermath of a December 2012 mass shooting in Connecticut, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre poured fuel on the gun control debate by saying that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

More Americans are WISING UP as the days go by wrt the truth about Sarah Palin ,,,,

I think we can confidently assert now that she has very sound judgment..................you know, it's quite uncanny that Former Gov Sarah Palin correctly read Obama's character, and what kind of leader he would be, way back on the 08 Campaign trail …. with such specificity -................ nothing she has predicted yet (wrt Obamacare, wrt Economy QE policy etc etc ) has been proven false, which is quite remarkable.

btw – if any readers want to hear some extremely eerie ‘fortune-telling’, (but really, predictive conclusions correctly drawn, after making accurate character assessments), listen online to Gov Sarah Palin’s RNC speech, sep 3rd 2008 ….

America needs this TRUTH TELLER and Corruptocrat FIGHTER, Gov Sarah Palin, in the Oval Office - look at her record in AK ! She dismantled the *Corrupt B*stards Club* up there ....

now, does America have a Corrupt B*stards' Club in DC, operating on STEROIDS???

Send her to DC and watch the RATS squeal as they try to RUN and HIDE!

Also, I think it would be best if this NOT4SALE Proven Reformer is directing things from the WH as the IMPLOSION hits America in the future (we are ticking over toward 120% of GDP in debt = Greece territory)

she is a born Exec Officer/Manager with > 20 years of experience, her most VITAL trait being, she is NOT4SALE

that quality ALONE is the single most important one if the US Govt is to be successfully reformed and Constitutional America rescued

imagine what a POTUS could do, if they were beholden to NOBODY, no Lobbyists, no special interest groups, no big donors ... a POTUS with a SINGLE ENTRY on her IOU list = "The American People"!

at the same time she is the most experienced Leader wrt Energy Issues and will also manage the EXPLOSION of American energy development

both the IMPLOSION/Reform of Govt and the EXPLOSION of American energy development must kick in at exactly the same time, if Constitutional America is
to survive and thrive again

GET HER INTO THE OVAL OFFICE, AMERICA
