Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin loved the way President Obama sounded as he gave his acceptance speech at the Nobel Peace Prize banquet Thursday. That’s because, as the new author and rising Republican star put it, he sounded a lot like her.
"I liked what he said," Palin told USA Today. "I thumbed through my book quickly this morning to say 'Wow! That really sounded familiar.' because I talked in my book too about the fallen nature of man and why war is necessary at times.”
Palin said that Obama had also taken a page or two from George W. Bush. He’d do well, she continued, to follow his predecessor even more closely.
"We have to stop those terrorists over there," she said. "We've learned our lesson from 9/11. George Bush did a great job of reminding Americans every single day that he was in office what that lesson is. And, by the way, I'd like to see President Obama follow more closely in the footsteps of George Bush and [Bush's] passion keeping the homeland safe, his passion for respecting – honoring our troops."
