Sarah Palin said Thursday — after hearing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announce the United States is demanding that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must go — that she wondered whether Democrats wish they had chosen Clinton as presidential nominee in 2008 instead of President Barack Obama.
“Well, he’s got his priorities skewed, really, Greta — and I take it literally that he was getting ready for, packing for vacation, while here it was Secretary Clinton asking on behalf of the United States of America for another president of another country to step down — that is our president’s role,” the former Alaska governor told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.
“This is another example of President Obama leading from behind — makes you scratch your head and wonder what really does he do?” Palin asked. “What does he desire to do in that position of leader of the free world and so much influence that he has, and in a case like this, he’s stepping back and allowing Hillary Clinton to basically carry the water for our entire nation.
“And I’ll bet you, Greta, going out on a limb . . . but I just think that after a day like this, where you saw that kind of presidential aura of Hillary Clinton as she made that announcement today, while Barack Obama was packing to head out for 10 days on vacation again to go golf and tickle his feet in the sand — I’ll bet you people, if they had to do it over again, who had that choice at that time in the Democrat primary between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — I bet you today, they are saying: ‘We should have gone with Hillary Clinton.’”
