Ukraine vs Russia, Obama vs Romney & Palin video clips

No real time to write about Russia’s encroachment (invasion) into the Ukrainian state of Crimea, but I figured I’d post these video clips for review since I find them somewhat interesting. Let’s look back to yesterday’s Krauthammer comments and the 2012 election.

Obama for America attacks Sarah Palin in political ad

Certainly, Sarah Palin is a conservative figure and in the public’s eye, but can someone point out for me a specific campaign or video ad – produced by the candidate’s campaign – that attacked someone who was not running for office or leading/managing a state or national campaign for the candidate?

Sarah Palin almost gets it – Solving the graft problem in Congress

In an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal this morning, Sarah Palin writes about graft inside the beltway, and the recently released “Throw Them All Out” by Peter Schweizer. Her suggestion to increase transparency and add layers of bureaucracy to monitor and restrict financial moves by members of Congress might work at the state level, but in Washington it would be treating symptoms, not the disease itself.

The Left whacks Palin. Forgets Obama’s greatest hits

I am not sure why the lefties have once again made the lovely Sarah Palin a big time target for personal hits again … but so be it. Much is being made of Sarah’s gaffe on Becky’s show.

Ann Coulter in her column this morning is pleading with Sarah Palin, the Queen maker, to make a new King in … Connecticut, former Congressman Rob Simmons.
