This one definately fits in the “batshittery” category. It seems Conservatives 4 Palin decided that parts of President Obama’s Nobel Prize Speech were lifted directly from Sarah Palin’s book Going Rogue. How the hell can these people really believe that the President would lift phrases from Palin’s pack of lies called a “book”? The intelligence quotient between the two is as wide as the Grand Canyon. Needless to say the POTUS is on the highest end of the spectrum.
Earlier today, Daniel Terrapin at Conservatives 4 Palin claimed that President Obama was cribbing notes from Sarah Palin
While reading President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, I was struck by how similar some of the sentiments he presented are to those in a certain best selling book I’ve recently read. In his speech, Obama stated:
I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people. For make no mistake: Evil does exist in the world. A non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler’s armies. Negotiations cannot convince al Qaeda’s leaders to lay down their arms. To say that force may sometimes be necessary is not a call to cynicism — it is a recognition of history; the imperfections of man and the limits of reason.
That post went down the memory hole (image here), I guess because this was a sentiment Obama has expressed for some time, and the charge that Obama copied from Palin is about as laughable as it gets. One example of this sentiment from Obama is this speech from 2006:
And in a world where evil lurks and terrorists plot, let it be said that we will conduct a smart foreign policy that matches the might of our military with the power of our diplomacy. And when we do go to war, let us always be honest with the American people about why we are there and how we will win.
Barack Obama isn’t copying Sarah Palin. Barack Obama is intelligent, thoughtful, and able to make executive decisions. In almost every way President Obama is the Anti-Palin.
