From David A. Patten at Newsmax:
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin alleges that the media has a blatant double standard, shining intense scrutiny on GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell while turning a blind eye to then-candidate Barack Obama's personal history in the 2008 campaign.Read the rest here.
During an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday night, Palin said: "Funny . . . That we are learning more about Christine O'Donnell and her college years, her teenage years, her financial dealings than anybody ever even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president."
Palin also recently tweeted to O'Donnell, Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from Delaware, that she shouldn't waste time "appeasing nat’l media seeking ur destruction.”
Obama has come under some criticism during his campaign and after for failing to release documents and background material on his life that has been de rigeur for most candidates.
Obama has yet to release college transcripts and files from his undergraduate work at Occidental College and Columbia University, and later at Harvard Law School. His college dissertation at Columbia has disappeared. Many of his official papers during his time as an Illinois state representative have also disappeared. He has never released his full medical records.
Palin told Van Susteren she would strongly consider running "if nobody else were to step up with the solutions that are needed to get the economy back on the right track, and to be so committed to our national security that they are going to do all that they can, including fighting those on the extreme left who seem to want to dismantle some of our national security tools that we have in place."
