Palin Rips Obama Over ‘Heavily Edited’ Attack Ad: I Am More Than Happy To Be His Enemy Of The Week


In a posting on Facebook, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin took a shot at President Obama for featuring her in a new “heavily-edited” attack ad, slamming it for taking her comments out of context. “I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s ‘enemy of the week’ if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about,” Palin wrote. “This latest ad is quite odd, but also quite telling. It shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed.”

“And intended or not, now that his ad opens up the discussion of Barack Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas about his promised ‘fundamental transformation’ of our country,” Palin added. “I welcome the media to join ordinary Americans in finally vetting Barack Obama. The media failed to do so in 2008 to the detriment of us all. Maybe this time around they can do their job.”

In President Obama’s new campaign ad, he hits Palin on telling Sean Hannity that he’s never been seen as a “man of valor” and that he’s bringing us back to days before the Civil War.

“More than four years later,” the ad begins, “Sarah Palin and the far right say President Obama will bring back racial discrimination…against white people.”
