Sarah Palin attacked President Barack Obama for the president's open mic comments to outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, saying he would have "more flexibility" on missile defense after the election.
The former Alaska governor wrote in a Facebook post:
Whoever chooses to merely dismiss the significance of today’s exchange between our president and Russia’s president should have their intelligence and patriotism questioned. Let this exchange be a warning to voters: President Obama will have 'more flexibility' to weaken us if he’s re-elected in November.
Palin's comments add to growing outrage on the right over the exchange between Obama and Medvedev. Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich both took jabs at the president Monday.
Palin speculated on what Obama's reference to "more flexibility" may mean in her lengthy post to followers on Facebook.
We can’t know for certain what this newly revealed 'flexibility' means, but considering President Obama’s past actions, be sure it won’t involve a position of strength for America and our allies.
