Sarah Palin challenges Obama to debate
The Hill ^ | March 13, 2012 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 03/13/2012 1:17:07 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sarah Palin shot back at the Obama reelection campaign this week after it used footage of her in a fundraising video.

"I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s 'enemy of the week' if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about," Palin wrote in a note on her Facebook page, posted late Monday. Palin was responding to a Web video fundraising for Obama that uses recent footage of Palin criticizing the president.

Palin also offered a challenge to Obama.

"I’m willing and free to discuss these issues with the President anywhere, anytime," Palin wrote.

Obama would have to be “swept” in order to assure he wasn’t wearing a wire.

Even if he was, she’s ‘sweep the floor’ with him.

Too bad so many (ahem) ‘conservatives’ here and on sites across the web/throughout the media spent so much time doing libs work for them. Things might have turned out differently.

Obie has painted himself into a corner. Can't minimize this challenge, because he brought her into the fray to begin with.

It amazes me how they keep on attacking her. She isn’t running for anything. They pretty much destroy her still on a daily basis.

True, but he'd never accept the challenge to begin with. He's the bully who taunts from a safe distance, he lacks the courage to go face-to-face with a Mama Grizzly. :)

By definition, if someone is running, they're trying to get somewhere.

But she doesn't have to get anywhere, because they won't leave her alone. Why run, if they come to you?

All the better! Keeps the issue that Fearless reader is to scared to do it in the public consciousness. All the little things add up.

Eventually a few fence sitters will fall off because of it.

Sarah Palin absolutely eviscerated "Say it Ain't So" Joe Biden in the VP debates. Even her critics admit that.

Obama is actually more gaffe-prone than Biden and far less capable of debating. I really want this to happen. Unlike John McCain, Sarah Palin is fearless and will expose his numerous weaknesses. It will be a study in contrast indeed as the metrosexual gets devastated by this courageous warrior for the real America.

It’s also possible he wouldn’t accept the challenge because presidential candidates generally debate each other, not people who aren’t running.

You go, Sarah! oscama might be able to do what no one else has...goad her into running. Pi$$ her off enough and she just might figure no one else is doing what she knows has to be done. Newt is at least in his face, but even Newt can’t use a shiv like Palin can.

I’ve said this on other threads.

Absolutely no one else can articulate our side as well as she. I’m talking the mainstream side of our side, not preppers and birthers etc.

So while she’s not running, she’s in his face.

Sarah should go into full tilt debate mode and respond to every statement Obama makes in public or at fundraisers. If she would go public with a full response and detail his lies, misstatements and faulty policy decisions she could take over the media and deconstruct his persona.

In no time he would have to respond, at which point she'd own him.

Once he says that publically she can then demand he apologize since he refuses to debate and explain himself...or be branded an abuser of women...you know...kinda like the left did to Rush ... Win/Win ;)

They also don't generally run attack ads against somebody who is not even running.

Do you see who is on the defensive here?

Hint: Her initials are not S.P.

Not only attack ads,
but entire MOVIES with the intent on destroying a non-candidate.

The left hates her with a visceral hatred.
There are many reasons, but in summary, it’s because they’re evil and she’s not.

The Obama bots team are deliberalry attacking her so she

has to spend her time with Obama. They are Afraid the woman

will enter the primary or be a voice at the convention. She will rage his base/they

need that now. She needs to tell him off (like she is) and move onto helping the conservative agenda. I pray she is Newt's VP-we need the base energized-she can bring more voters out on our side vs OBama's side.

He's already proven he is willing to waste his time on her, but only if she can't respond.

that photo is what obama is the poster child of a Dem.

Putin is out there hunting, fighting etc and we have this pansy clown putting up curtains or grabbing chewbacca when he was watching Judo.

At the last election I watched the Dem rallies and the crowd they get .
Dem men, they’re like women, or girlie, pansy spandex wearers who are crying on their wife’s shoulder at night and would never leave the house on their bicycle without a helmet.
or
the paid union half wits with beer bellies who can only say something to someone or pick a fight when they face a right wing woman or an elderly guy or if they’re 10 to one because they’re cowards and I’ve called them out a few times.
The women have no class, can’t seem to wear a dress or look nice, they’re butch, look bitter, wear shirts with silly slogans on etc

I think she is being bullied by Obama and I am offended. He should apologize on TV just like Republicans do...Alynski said to make them live up to their impossible standards and Saul is the way truth and light isn’t he? ;)

I think we should voice how very very very offended at this Presidential bullying we are because bullying is wrong and bullies like Obama should apologize to their VICTIMS!!!!

HA!!!
