Former President Barack Obama recently released his new memoir entitled “A Promised Land.” It’s just the first volume about his time in The Oval Office.
According to The Daily Wire, Obama didn’t speak very highly of Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and John McCain’s running mate in 2008.
“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage,” Obama wrote.
Palin has responded, pushing back against those comments.
“There’s proof after proof after proof that he is a purveyor of untruths,” she told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“Our country has to love truth. We have to be seekers of truth. We have to be willing to follow truth. And there are so many untruths that Barack Obama is leading people towards still,” Palin said.
From The Daily Wire:
Obama says he wonders sometimes whether McCain would still have picked Palin if he had known “her spectacular rise and her validation as a candidate would provide a template for future politicians, shifting his party’s center and the country’s politics overall in a direction he abhorred.”
“I’d like to think that given the chance to do it over again, he might have chosen differently,” Obama writes. “I believe he really did put his country first.”
