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."

    This woman is pretending that she has an inkling of knowledge concerning Worlk affairs. She is an intellectual lightweight and could not possibly be a leader of the free world. I think that this is a well known fact.

    That fool is an IDIOT. She probably can't find Egypt on a map and if she did, she wouldn't know how to spell it..

    So now you like what he did with the Egypt situation? Want him to repeat with Iran? Must be the hot flashes.

    The dumbing down of America is going well,according to the plan!
    We as a people have evolved well past the point of being divided,but I guess some people are still playing catch up!
    If we fall for this trick we(Americans)will end up in the streets like the Egyptians!

    A very serious, just and accurate question?
    Is it possible that we closed our eyes while Neda died in Iran?

    When a mama grizzly sees Sarah Palin (blessed be her name) coming, they hand over their cubs to be raised by her. Sarah (bbhn) also sleeps with a pillow under her gun.

    As a supporter of our president, I really do hope this woman gets the GOP nomination for 2012.

    Once again the moron rears her ugly head. Has offered zero, zilch, nothing, nada, not one idea as to how to deal with Iran's nuclear ambitions and somehow thinks they will listen to her. "not real regards to understanding all the situation there"????? Is English any of her languages?

    Does Iran receive as much foriegn aid as Egypt? No, hence our influence. Crawl back under whatever rock you came from.

    CNN; you can open comments to the Ron Paul interview with your esteemed WB, or is this section similar to state run media found elsewhere in the world..

    It is none of her business what is being done. Cant she just keep her nose and filthy mouth out of things. She should go back to Alaska and take care of her kids. They probably dont even know her any more.

    Snooki Palin can see Iran from her front porch too. America is not enthused about Snooki as she will see again. Keep talking Snooki.

    How does a woman who once claimed that her entire foreign policy experience consisted of being able to "see Russia from her house" have the absolute gall to lecture others?

    President Obama: “To the people of Egypt, particularly the young people of Egypt, I want to be clear: We hear your voices.”
    President Obama from less than a year ago about much larger demonstrations all over America: "So I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes. You would think they would be saying thank you." and "Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I'm not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around...”

    President Obama at the Prayer Breakfast: “Now, sometimes faith groups can do the work of caring for the least of these on their own. Sometimes they need a partner, whether it's in business or government, and that's why my administration has taken a fresh look at the way we organize with faith groups, the way we work with faith groups through our Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships...There's only so much a church can do to help all the families in need, all those who need help making a mortgage payment or avoiding foreclosure or making sure their child can go to college....And that's why I continue to believe that, in a caring and in a just society, government must have a role to play, that our values, our love, and our charity must find expression not just in our families, not just in our places of work and our places of worship, but also in our government and in our politics.”

    President Obama: “If we make America the best place to do business, businesses should make their mark in America. They should set up shop here, and hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation. That's their obligation. And that's the message I'll be bringing to American business leaders at the Chamber of Commerce on Monday “
