Video: KTH: Is Palin rewriting history?

Sarah Palin takes aim at Pres. Obama's "Sputnik moment" reference. Are her facts straight? We're Keeping Them Honest.

    Ifind it amusing that there are Americans who find Sarah Palin worthy of being a leader given her zero politica intellectand massive naivety.She would be a disaster as a leader. She makes us all laugh at her stupidity.

    Palin's problem is she doesn't know history, but she does know how to pander to educational ignorance.

    lets get rid of palin I wonder what possesed Mccain, he brought her into the into the national political lime light I think we should examine his abilities, I for one never had any political courage, he just looked for votes any way he could get them, using his military service to get elected, if you really listen to him he constantly contradicts himself. And think he could have been the President, one disaster(gwb) after another. Then we have a speaker of the house who cries at the drop of a tissue. Can a person who is so quick to shed tears, make the serious decisions that are needed in Washington?? These are the questions about which we should be conceerned.

    Palins hired handlers, advisors, marketers, and
    branders are spoon feeding her coles notes she can try to spew out and then she hopes no one call her on it.

    The fact that Sarah Palin is still trying to trademark her name is very revealing. She tried to trademark Bristol Palin's (her daughter)name 5 days before Dancing with the stars and she is still making applications.
    Sarah Palins goal is to CONTROL the media and who can print or say her name...eegads...didn't she try to ban books when she was a mayor? This is a scary woman who wants to completely control what is said about her and ban anyone from using her name unless she approves...propagand?

    If anything put the USSR into bankruptsy it was probably the invasion of Afganistan . With support from the CIA and Pakistan for the Taliban , the Russian military had very little chance of success.

    The REASON that we are enamored with Sarah Palin is because she is pretty. Ditto for Michelle Bachman. If they were ugly people do you think we would still be watching them for even a moment? No. She's like the head cheerleader in high school that everyone just follows around because her beauty translates into power. It's no secret that beautiful people get further in the world on less (intelligence, skill, etc). It happens all the time. But for it to happen at this level is downright insulting to the rest of us who go to work and perform jobs that Sarah Palin couldn't do in her wildest dreams. She's ballsy though - I'll give her that. And she's got the formula down - she even profits on bad press. And she's in the news almost every day so....she will most definitely be a rich rich woman before she fades away (keeping fingers crossed).

    My husband and I think that Sarah Palin should stick to being a "soccer mom" and stay out of the spot light.

    Whether the Sputnik made The USSR go bankrupt is not the point. The NASA moon space project re-invigorated American science and technology, and created thousands of peoples jobs.
    There are many documented innovations which are in use to day that were Space program brain childs including non stick fry pans and many others.
    In the context it was used in the president SOTU speech it was appropriate and correct, but Palin is still looking to what she can see from her house I.e. Russia. Go home to alska with your newly earned $$millions and have a happy life. A President you never will be.

    I am so pleased that you decided to have intelligent individuals and realistic ones at that, as a panel. Too often I am frustrated with the mere fact that an individual such as Sarah Palin even is allowed to have air time. It is horrifying to think that SHE could potentially be the leader of our country and represent our great Nation to the outside world. She in recent months reminds me more of the individuals on jersey shore than a future candidate. I have always said that even though my wonderful mother was a hockey mom too, it doesn't mean she can run the country don't ya know.

    Palin may be superb at selling her "brand", but when it comes to facts, Palin is lost. She has no concept what the word "socialism" means, though she flings it like a monkey at her opponents often. Her knowledge of Political history is absent as well. We did not begin as a Christian nation, though you can't tell her that. But that's an error common among many Evangelical Christians today thanks in great part to Christian American History apologists like David Barton.

    Palin talks like a beauty queen - not surprizing given her past. Remeber her interviews? Her responses to questions like "do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?" Sorry, but she's an ambitious loud-mouthed idiot who should never hold public office.

    Sara Palin is only a small part of a greater picture, the Tea Party and their membership are hellbent on dumming down our government. They constantly accuse President Obama of violating their constitutional rights. I doubt a professor of constitutional laws would be quick to violate the rights of 300 million U. S. citizens. He's the President for goodness sake!

    Sarah Palin was disrespectful in her comments regarding President Obama's speech.I cringe everytime I hear a speech or an interview.Honestly , how can any citizen listen to her commentary ? She quit her elected post to serve the Alaskan people to make money for herself and her family.She is not suited for public service as it is all about her not about service to others, never mind the fact that everytime she opens her mouth she makes stupid or narrow minded comments.

    How dare anyone accuse Palin of rewriting history? She's incapable of doing so. She just makes her own history, like, "Afghanistan is in Africa" and "Abraham Lincoln was not assassinated.He took on a new identity". She's that good.
