The White House's declaration that the U.S. will not respond to a conventional attack with nuclear weapons has come under attack itself ... from Sarah Palin.
Speaking in Minnesota, the former Alaska Governor and current professional celebrity said no previous administration would've ever considered such a step.
"It's unbelievable," Palin said at a rally.
"It's like a bunch of kids, ready to fight on a playground, and one says, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face. I'm not going to retaliate. Do what you want to with me.'"
That's what Bristol Palin said to Levi Johnson! Sorry. Moving on.
"This is another thing that the American public, the more they find out what is a part of this agenda, they're going to rise up and say 'no more,'" Sarah said.
NUKED: Barack promptly shot down his harshest critic.
Unaware or unwilling to consider nuance, Palin's foreign policy is four words long: We win, you lose! Suffice it to say, the President, who believes reducing global nuclear proliferation and tension helps the U.S. "win" along with everyone, was unmoved.
"Last I checked, Sarah Palin is not much of an expert on nuclear issues," Barack Obama told ABC, declining to elaborate but adding an additional jab at critics.
"What I'd say to them is that if the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are comfortable with this, I'm probably going to take my advice from them, and not from Sarah Palin," he told George Stephanopolous.
Dude, you can see Russia from Alaska! Step off and let a pro handle it.
Who's the bomb when it comes to defense and foreign policy?
