Palin: Obama ‘Wears Mom Jeans’ and ‘Equivocates’ on Russia

Sarah Palin sat down with Sean Hannity Monday night for a victory lap of sorts, touting her 2008 comments about Russia capitalizing on a weak Barack Obama presidency to amass power. Palin believed she was vindicated, saying Russia exploited “Obama’s weak leadership.”

She said, “Anybody who carries the common-sense gene knows that Putin doesn’t change his stripes.” Palin and Hannity agreed that when the U.S. can’t “feed others with our resources,” people grow more reliant on Russia’s resources and it emboldens them, which is why the U.S. should approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Vladimir Putin, Palin said, is viewed as a man who “wrestles bears and drills for oil,” while Obama’s “potency” is one of “weakness” and said he’s viewed as a man who “wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”

She bashed Obama for having a policy of “leading from behind” and warned that nations other than Russia are “taking advantage of that weakness in America at this point.” Palin also quipped that if Putin wants to quell uproar about his violations of the law, he should borrow a page from Obama’s playbook and call them “executive orders.”
