CNN provides some of the details, which seem oddly similar to an article at the Atlanta Black Star (read both, and realize that the ABS article was posted before the CNN article, and is trending on several news aggregators), minus the Palin Derangement Syndrome
(CNN) Managing editor Richard Stengel wrote Obama deserved the recognition because he “forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.”
But Palin, who along with 2008 GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, lost to the Democratic presidential ticket four years ago, said “those are some silly words chosen to describe Barack Obama.”
“When I first heard that, the first thing that popped in my mind was: What the heck has he done? Really, what has he done, except drive us over a fiscal cliff,” she said. “What has he done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union? For the life of me, I don’t know.”
Well, he is giving free stuff to people. Paid for by borrowing 46 cents on every dollar the United States federal government spends. He’s increased the debt by over $6 trillion dollars. He’s made Americans even more divided. He blames everyone else, and demonizes private citizens and entities.
(Atlanta Black Star) Palin offered this assessment of the proper path “toward a more perfect union.”
“The path toward a more perfect union is our Constitution and I think we’ve seen examples of our President not necessarily following the Constitution,” she said. “In fact, he’s wanting to change the Constitution because he see it as a charter of negatives…and he’s made statements in the past about his view of our Constitution. And following the Constitution is the blueprint toward a more perfect union.”
If the Founding Fathers truly agreed with Palin, they wouldn’t have seen the need to continually add amendments to the constitution. But let us not pick nits with the former governor.
Ah, but the Founding Fathers left a path for adding amendments, but until such time, elected officials are legally required to follow what the Constitution says.
Palin also had a few things to say about Benghazigate and the former Marine being held in Mexico, which team Obama is doing nothing about. The media doesn’t want to focus on those, obviously.
