Reader comment on item: Sarah Palin Endorses 'Bomb Iran'

Submitted by Jay1 (United States), Feb 12, 2010 at 00:12

Dr. Pipes conclusion about Pat Buchanan vis a vis Iran should be no surprise.Pat Buchanan is a foolish buffoon that once upon a time, recieved a lucky break as a Presidential speech writer,and parlayed it. Hes rarely correct,and often weird.In his mind,any issue that helps Americas ally Israel,cant be good for America.

Dr Pipes perplexion over Sarah Palins dislike by many is yes,odd to see,and not deserved. It is reasonable to say that she wasnt ready to be a VP let alone a President based on her very very far away experience in Alaska.And it is also fair to say that she hasnt helped herself while giving some answers.But it is also reasonable to wonder if America, strangely, doesnt take as serious,a young and attractive women,the way it has, a young and attractive man in the highest of office. Maybe? I think Sarah Palin needs more time to rub shoulders with Americas movers, shakers,and issues.But on Iran,standing rather all alone,she seems right.Which brings me to my growing analysis of our young and attractive President Obama.

After wasting over a year on the illusion of Iranian dialogue,wasting political capital on the Gitmo obsession and wrongheaded trials,and unfairly cornering friend Israel as a villian (now by his cue,embraced all over),President Obama has earned a question that Sarah Palin need not be asked. Is Presidents Obamas motivation for his issues based soley on his desire to distinguish himself from his predecessor whether right or wrong? Maybe?
