At this point is there really any question who the actual leader of the free world is? Time and time again we see Obama do something really stupid, and dangerous, only to have Sarah Palin call him on it. This is usually followed by a war of words, with Obama’s media partners coming to his aid, but it always ends the same way. Obama is forced to capitulate, publicly.
We are all familiar with the latest dangerous idea from our rookie President. Out of the blue Obama decided to tell the world using our nuclear weapons, even if attacked, was off the table. He went on to say that even if we were attacked with weapons of mass destruction, we would not respond in kind.
Obviously, this didn’t set well with the American people.
For her part, Sarah Palin noted how ridiculously naive and dangerous this ludicrous action by Obama was. Sarah compared Obama’s plan to that of a kid out in the school yard telling the bully to go ahead and hit him, and he wouldn’t do anything about it.
Of course, Obama, with the aid of his media partner George Stephanopoulos, had some smart ass comment regarding Sarah’s nuclear experience, and it was on!
Once again, Obama comes up short!
Here Sarah comments on the vast nuclear experience Obama must have obtained as a "part time Senator" and a "community organizer"
As Stacy Drake reminded readers, Sarah Palin does have experience in dealing with these sort of issues, and in fact, was chosen to be John McCain’s running mate, in part, because of her strong answers to questions posed to her on national security, including the use of nuclear weapons.

Today Gateway Pundit reports that the Obama regime has done a 180 on their position on the use of nuclear weapons after their public flogging by Sarah Palin:
Moose Hunter Bags Community Organizer… Obama Retreats on Nuke Plan
On Wednesday, Sarah Palin said Barack Obama’s new nuclear policy was like, "A kid on the playground saying punch me in the face and I’m not going to retaliate." This upset the the president who later lashed out at the former Alaska Governor on her nuclear experience on Thursday.
Which led to this–
Sarah Palin clobbered Barack Obama Friday in her speech at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. The former Alaska Governor responded to the "community organizer’s" attack on her nuclear experience.
She questioned what in Obama’s community organizing background led him to believe he was an expert on nuclear policy.
Today, the Obama Administration retreated from their previous nuclear plan.
Hillary Clinton told CBS that "all bets are off" when it comes to biological weapons.
The Obama administration’s nuclear posture review may have removed some of the intentional ambiguity from U.S. nuclear policy, but it does not leave the country any less safe, President Obama’s top national security advisers said on CBS’ "Face the Nation."
In fact, they said, it gives a clear warning to other state actors that the U.S. will not ignore any growing threats.
"This is putting everybody on notice," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CBS News chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer in an interview conducted Friday at the Pentagon. "We don’t want more countries to go down the path that North Korea and Iran are."
The revised nuclear policy says that the United States will not use nuclear weapons to respond to a chemical or biological attack from a non-nuclear country. The policy, however, leaves significant contingencies, said Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
Countries which are non-signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (such as North Korea) or have been found to be non-compliant (such as Iran) are not exempt from nuclear retaliation under the Obama policy.
"We were concerned about the biological weapons," Gates said, "and that’s why the president was very clear … if we see states developing biological weapons that we begin to think endanger us or create serious concerns, that he reserves the right to revise this policy."
Clinton added, "If we can prove that a biological attack originated in a country that attacked us, then all bets are off."
Apparently, the former governor knows more about nuclear deterrence than the community organizer after all.
This round goes to Palin.
Now if you noticed, Sarah also hammered Obama for his epic failure concerning North Korea. It just so happens Josh Painter is reporting the DPRK has restarted it’s nuclear program:
North Korea has restarted its nuclear facilities to harvest weapons-grade plutonium, an official said Saturday, in an escalation of the communist state's standoff with the international community over its nuclear and missile programs.
Josh goes on to describe the situation with North Korea as a complete disaster. He also reminds us that Sarah Palin has been incredibly outspoken against Obama’s policies toward the communist state:
"I am deeply concerned with North Korea’s development and testing program which has clear potential of impacting Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States, with a potentially nuclear armed warhead," Governor Palin said. "I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we continue to develop and perfect the global missile defense network. Alaska’s strategic location and the system in place here have proven invaluable in defending the nation."
We are reminded of the fact Ft Greely, Alaska is the site of our nation’s only ground based missile defense complex and the fact Sarah Palin has bi-partisan concern for Obama’s reckless attempt to cut funding for the facility by $1.4 billion:
"Our early opposition to reduced funding for the Missile Defense Agency is proving to be well-founded during this turbulent time," Governor Palin said. "I continue to support the development and implementation of a defensive missile shield based in Alaska. We are strategically placed to defend the critical assets of the United States and our allies in the Pacific Theater."

Let’s not fool ourselves, while Obama is a dangerous Marxist who has a definite plan to destroy the nation from within, to tear down the Constitutional Republic, and replace it with his version of a communist utopia, he is completely and totally clueless on foreign affairs.
Obama has insulted and alienated every single ally we have, while at the same time emboldening all of the world’s bad actors. This is the worst kind of situation to be in. Thanks to Obama, and his total ineptness, the world is in more peril than at anytime in history.
Thankfully Sarah Palin is out there keeping the pressure on Obama like no one else can.
America needs strong leadership and time and time again Sarah Palin is proving to be the one with the courage to provide it.
