On Fox News last night, Sarah Palin unloaded on Barack Obama by responding to allegations that his vice-president, Joe Biden, called tea partiers "terrorists."
"Independent, patriotic Americans who desire fiscal sanity in our beloved nation, being called terrorists?
Heck, Sean, if we were real domestic terrorists, shoot, President Obama would be wanting to 'pal around with us, wouldn't he?
He didn't have a problem 'paling around with Bill Ayers back in the day when he kicked off his political career in Bill Ayers' apartment, shaking hands with Chavez, saying he doesn't need any preconditions with meeting with dictators, or wanting to read U.S. Miranda Rights to alleged -- the suspected foreign terrorists.
No, if we were all domestic terrorists, President Obama wouldn't have a problem with us."
She also ripped him for contradicting his Arizona speech where he called for more civility following the mass shooting.
"The president's speech in Arizona -- as he asked folks to start ratcheting down the record -- he wasn't sincere in that, and that's typical Barack Obama, unfortunately, that is typical of our president where it's blah, blah, blah. It's talk and no real action.
Otherwise, he'd be on Biden and tell Biden to tone it down a little bit."
