Right Wingnut posted Palin's full interview today that includes a much longer section about Palin's views on Egypt. The other day I posted her comments but did not get the entire section. I think that a few things needs to be said about that.
1. I didn't post the longer section about Egypt because it had not been posted when I saw it at The Brody File. At the time, the only thing he had up was her comments about Obama's handling of the Egypt situation. While I did not agree with her on those comments, I do agree with her other comments on Egypt. Had that section been posted, I would have never posted my piece.
Palin is right to worry about the Muslim Brotherhood. The current administration worries about the Muslim Brotherhood. We need to be careful about how we conduct diplomacy in the coming year. And Palin is right that Mubarak "is gone." I am proud to know that she is not actively rooting for the continuation of an authoritarian leader like some other potential 2012's are. Palin deserves some credit here.
2. Jersey Republican also pointed out to me that the section I posted was a little different from the section that appeared on Brody's website. Brody apparently added some periods in place of commas later after I had copied and pasted his post into my blog. He cleaned it up a little. In fact, I think that he probably did a poor job of transcribing her comments in the first place. Does that make sense? Maybe not.
Anyway, the intention of my post was to figure out what Palin thinks about Egypt. And I mostly agree with her. I don't understand why she bashed Obama since she has adopted the same posture as him, but I like her comments on Egypt. And I hope that she leads on this issue. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage have all lost their minds and have done everything but fly to Egypt to kiss Mubarak's butt. This is one instance in which I would like to see Palin turn into a Mama Grizzily and defend the Egyptian people.
Again, I apologize to Palin fans if I misrepresented Palin's views. However, I was only posting what Brody had up at the time.
