Birthday present for Palin

Washington (CNN) - If members of the media are wondering what to get Sarah Palin on her birthday, they should look no further than the former Alaska governor's Twitter account.

Palin, who turns 47 today, wrote tonight "Media: ask "Will Obama Admin exert as much 'constructive' pressure on Iranian govt to change & allow freedom ~ as they just did for Egypt?"

Tonight isn't the first time Palin has criticized the Obama administration's handling of Iran. In December, Palin penned an op-ed in USA Today chastising the president's actions in halting Iran's nuclear program.

She wrote, "President Obama once said a nuclear-armed Iran would be "unacceptable." Yet, Iran's nuclear progress still continues unchecked."

This also isn't the first time the potential 2012 Republican presidential contender has weighed in on the unrest in Egypt. Palin told the Christian Broadcasting Network last week that the situation was Obama's 3 a.m. phone call, and that "It seems the call went right to the answering machine."

She went on to explain that she was "not real enthused about what it is that's being done on a national level and from (Washington) in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt."

    Hmm she needs a MUZZLE. Hey Srah you can spout hate towards Obama but wondering when you are going to unveil any ideas to add Jobs? When are you going to go on MSNBC? THE VIEW? Oh thats right all you can do is preach to white rednecks in jerkwater Texas, W. Virgina, Kansas, Alabama etc...

    Um, it would be difficult to exert the same kind of pressure because we don't have any diplomatic ties with Iran, period. We also don't give Iran aid money like we do Egypt, thus we have very little leverage. But way to oversimplify the situation, Sarah. You can always be counted upon to miss or completely ignore the subtleties.

    This, once again, exemplifies how little Sarah Palin understands about foreign policy. God help us all if she were to
    ever become President :(

    wow...She has no clue, just like I dont about what is going on with the state department and so on behind the scenes. I am sure a bunch of information is being held back, so how can you comment on how someone handles the situations based on facts only provided by the media?

    Can this woman EVER say anything original, constructive, or positive? Every last one of her well thought-out and well-spoken comments is a negative reaction to a personal attack, or to a world situation she can barely grasp.

    blah blah blah.. This woman only criticizes and nothing else. The administration walked a razors edge and came out with flying colors. What did the Bush-Cheney do in the 8 years in office when Iran actually advanced most towards its nuclear ambitions ? I did not agree with many of Reagan's policies but at least he was an optimist and believed that our best days are ahead not like Ms Palin, the doomsayer. There is no comparison. She along with all the RW critics have been nagging about the Muslim Brotherhood but not one of them suggested a way to handle the situation as it developed in Egypt. Obama and his team did a great job.

    This woman is no longer a "politician" – she abandoned that position when she quit on the good people of Alaska. She also has some of the poorest gramatical skills I've ever heard: "not real enthused about what it is that's being done on a national level and from (Washington) in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt." I think she meant to say "I'm not very happy with the way the Egypt situation is being handled in Washington".

    Maybe in Palins eyes, we should just bomb them into submission like that other idiot thought. Don't these people even think before spewing out the stupid nonsense that they do. Egypt did a fine job of handling things without us interfering. Iran's people will take care of that government when they finally get some sense. we are not the world's police Mrs. Palin.

    People often say that with age comes wisdom – too bad that's not the case with Sarah. She remains the same simple-minded, babbling idiot she's always been and will always be.

    Oh, so this dimwit's grand plan is to march into every sovereign country and tell them what to do? Yeah, I suppose that is the republican way. Idiots, the entire lot of 'em.

    This dunce wouldn't understand if someone drew her a picture. This is way over your head, Sarah.

    Maybe quitter-Governor Palin should ask conservatives, who installed and maintained the dictator Shah for years, which led to the current predicament in Iran.

    But wait, that would require she know something about history, which obviously is a little outside her expertise in, um...what exactly does Palin have any talents in?

    This woman is clueless and has no concept of what is really happening in the real world outside of her imagination. We can thank God that she has no responsibility for anything. If she and the other right wing nuts had their way we would have invaded Egypt on more borrowed money from China She needs to go back to Alaska, take away her Twitter and Facebook accounts so that she is quiet and we don't have to here from her again.

    Palin is angry cause President Obama and his diplomacy earned the US a Win in Egypt.

    Whatever Obama comments were on Egypt, it must have had some positive effects..
    This woman is an idiot!

    The last sentence/paragraph in the article above says it all. The woman is an incoherent buffoon.

    Moron. What she is proposing is counterproductive. Republicans are upset because how Obama dealt with the Egyptian situation has been excellent. He for the most part let the people of their country OWN the collapse of Mubarak.

    What? Sarah Palin is no more entitled to know what the President may know as a result of intelligence and diplomatic efforts than I am. She's a private citizen, and one that has little understanding of foreign affairs anyway.
