Sarah Palin Mocks Obama As Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year
Sarah Palin is now on record as mocking President Obama for being named by Time Magazine as Person Of The Year. The former Alaskan Governor and now Fox News contributor was speaking to Fox’s Greta Van Susteren when Sarah Palin criticized the point of the award in a self-depreciating manner, using herself as an example for why being named Person Of The Year does not matter.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the last time Sarah Palin really made the news was when she used the phrase “shuck and jive” to describe the reactions of the Obama administration to the Benghazi Scandal. She probably didn’t realize her comment would become prescient as the political dodging is still ongoing. An honorable mention would include some conservative pundits nominating Sarah Palin for the 2016 Presidential Elections (ugh, these things start early these days, don’t they?). Then of course there’s her son Track who recently decided to divorce his wife of one year.
According to the video by Fox News President Obama was awarded Person Of The Year by Time Magazine for his success in “forging a new majority…to create a more perfect union.” Sarah Palin was asked for her thoughts on that statement:
“The path toward a more perfect union is our Constitution and I think we’ve seen examples of our President not necessarily following the Constitution. In fact, he’s wanting to change the Constitution because he see it as a charter of negatives…and he’s made statements in the past about his view of our Constitution. And following the Constitution is the blueprint toward a more perfect union.”
Time Magazine named Sarah Palin one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2010. Considering this, it’s pretty funny when she uses herself as example for why Time lacks credibility in making its choices for Person Of the Year:
“Time magazine, I think there’s some irrelevancy there, to tell you the truth. I mean, consider their list of the most influential people in the country and in the world, consider some who made that list: yours truly! That ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence we should give Time magazine and their list of people.”
Sara Palin considers Time’s description of Obama’s accomplishments to be “silly words” and when she looks back she asks, “What the heck has he done? Really, what has he done but drive us over a Fiscal Cliff?” She seems to think the Congressional gridlock means that the Fiscal Cliff is a foregone deal, but she also asks, “What has [Obama] done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union? For the life of me, I don’t know.”
Do you agree with Sarah Palin that Obama does not deserve Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year award for the reasons Time lists?
