There has been no shortage of talk about quitter former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s ridiculous and misguided comments attacking first lady Michelle Obama who is leading a national campaign to combat obesity among young people.
You will hear a lot of people say a lot of things about what Palin is doing, but before I get to that lets get to some of what she had to say via Roland Martin on CNN who cited Huffington Post:
“Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat.”And I know I’m going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician’s wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track.”
I really think this comes down to one thing: the blind-rage hatred that people like Palin and others on the right have for the Obamas.
This is a reckless and ignorant attack on Palin’s part. Part of it is she is selling a book, but another part of it shows how pathetic it is that people would actually vote for her to be president of the United States.
Palin is driven by blind-rage hatred of anything that does not fit her world view and right-wing self righteousness.
A VERY large number of these extremist right wingers, tea baggers, birthers, truthers, etc. flat out hate President Obama and have ever since summer of 2008 when he emerged as the front runner to represent the Democrats in the presidential election.
