Palin: Obama 'Arrogant' and 'Desperate' in Debate

By Greg McDonald

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said President Barack Obama came across as "arrogant" and "desperate" in his foreign policy debate with Mitt Romney Monday night.
Appearing on Fox News's Sean Hannity show, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee also said Obama told so many "untruths" in the debate that Romney "didn't have time to answer them all."
"Obama's mannerism . . . I think manifested life catching up with him, thus the desperation that really came across," she told Hannity in describing how she thought the president reacted to Romney's measured responses and his challenges to the Obama record.
She said the president also appeared to be "very arrogant" toward his Republican challenger, suggesting that he was out of touch with the realities and complexities of foreign policy issues.
But she said the president displayed a real lack of truthfulness when he heaped all the blame for the automatic spending cuts, or budget sequestration scheduled for early next year, on Congress. She also expressed some dismay at his claim the scheduled cuts won't actually take place.
"Those are not true claims," said Palin, now a Fox News contributor.
"Sequestration . . . was the result of his lack of any kind of budget for four years; it was due to his adding to the national debt," she continued, noting that "he signed sequestration into law."
"Again, there just wasn't enough time, I believe, for Romney to answer all the false charges and get all those questions answered that so many of us have for Obama," she said.
