"Recall how the events of 9-11 challenged our values and we had to fight the tendency to trade our freedoms for perceived security. And so it is today."As my family would say: Seriously? SERIOUSLY? serIOUSly? You have got to be kidding. I am pretty sure that if I spent some time, I could come up with a dozen statements and policy stances where Palin does exactly that--try to trade our freedoms for perceived security. Opposing the closing of Gitmo? Opposing the banning of torture? What was her position on waterboarding?
Up is down, black is white? I just love that Palin is now criticizing trading off freedom for security. Where has she been since 2001? If this is her moment to demonstrate her Presidential qualities, I think we are done.
