Palin: We Don’t Know Anything About ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ (Video)
September 23, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—The former half governor of Alaska and Fox News “entertainer” Sarah Palin, believes the country knows more about teen witch Christine O’Donnell than “Barack Hussein Obama.” According to Palin’s revisionist history, questions about Obama’s background were never asked, during the 2008 presidential campaign. Has she forgotten about the constant smears and attacks on the President’s background, that continue to this day? Let’s refresh Palin’s memory. Does “palled around with terrorists” ring a bell? What about,”This is not a man who sees America like you and I see America.”
Americans know more about this president than perhaps any other. Barack Obama penned a best selling book “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” that delved into his most private moments, during his childhood and young adulthood.
And during the presidential campaign, led by the likes of Sarah Palin, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Fox News and the right-wing smear machine, Obama’s background was constantly misrepresented to portray Obama as a scary foreigner, a radical and a secret Muslim.
Media Matters writes of the disingenuousness of Palin’s statement that questions weren’t asked about Obama’s background, especially when Palin served as mudslinger-in-chief:
“This must be comforting for conservatives who remain convinced that Barack Obama — I’m sorry, Barack Hussein Obama — is radical beyond recognition. They can convince themselves that the America they know would never vote for someone like Obama if they actually knew what he really was. It’s all the fault of that “lamestream media” who just didn’t do their job. If only they had spent more time reporting on Bill Ayers, or Reverend Wright, then McCain and Palin totally would have won.
The reality, of course, is that America either didn’t believe Palin’s attacks on Obama’s past, or they didn’t care. The media reported at length about Obama’s background, his youth, even going so far as to track down his childhood friends in Indonesia.”
Palin made her remarks during an appearance last night on Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren’s On the Record. Susteren asked Palin to comment on Republican senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell’s negative publicity.
Palin responded, deliberately using President Obama’s full name, to make her bizarre point that America knows nothing about this secret Muslim foreigner in the White House.
PALIN: Funny Greta though, we are learning more about Christine O’Donnell and her college years and her teenage years, and her financial dealings than anyone ever bothered to ask about Barack Hussien Obama, as a candidate. And now as our president.
