Sarah Palin criticized President Barack Obama on Saturday for saying America is a military superpower “whether we like it or not,” saying she was taken aback by his comment.
“I would hope that our leaders in Washington, D.C., understand we like to be a dominant superpower,” the former Alaska governor said. “I don’t understand a world view where we have to question whether we like it or not that America is powerful.”
It seems she misses the point as usual. Being a superpower isn’t like some fun neat thing we should all be throwing our hats in the air about. It’s a heavy responsibility and makes us the world cop in a world that has no other cops or much else to back up international law.
