Palin Praises Troops, Bush; Ignores Obama

Posted by | May 3, 2011 14:38 | Filed under: Top Stories

Speaking at Colorado Christian University, Sarah Palin praised the troops and former President Bush for the capture of bin Laden, but noticeably omitted any mention of President Obama, the current commander-in-chief.

“Their courage and their determination brought us justice,” Palin said of those who hunted the terrorist figurehead for nearly 10 years. “They know that freedom isn’t free. It’s a God-given right and worth fighting for.”

Palin never mentioned President Barack Obama by name — instead saying, “We thank President (George W.) Bush for having made the right calls to set up this victory.”

By implication, however, Palin attacked the president on other foreign policies.

Striking a more political note, Palin said American troops need clear leadership. She cited the Obama administration’s policy in Libya as an example of “a lack of clarity.”
