MSNBC and Politico, two of the most virulent anti-Palin outlets in the Democrat/Media complex, teamed up to blast Gov. Palin for her overseas visit to two countries which are among America's strongest allies. Obama PR operative Andrea Mitchell, who plays a journalist on TV, and Jeanne Cummings, a managing editor at leftsite Politico, are seen ganging up on the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate in this clip from Eyeblast TV:
Mitchell lied through her teeth, a common practice for the leftist talking head, by mumbling that Gov. Palin's recent trip was "one of her first ventures overseas." Actually, it was her fourth excusion overseas and seventh visit of significance to take place on foreign soil.
As governor of Alaska, she made a surprise sojourn to Kuwait to spend some time with the Alaska Army National Guard's 3rd Battalion 297th Infantry, which was deployed there at the time. She then flew to Germany to visit wounded soldiers in Landstuhl Regional Medical Center there before returning to the U.S. Two years later, Gov. Palin again visited troops from Alaska deployed overseas, members of 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment, form the bulk of Task Force Arctic Eagle at Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo.
In September, 2009, Sarah Palin flew to Hong Kong, where she had been invited to deliver a major address which was well received. In March of 2010, she spoke to a crowd of over 1,000 in Cagary, Canada - not an overseas journey but a visit to our northern neighbor and another country which is a key U.S. ally. And her recent trip to the nations of India and Israel included a brief stop in Taiwan. Were Andrea Mitchell not so intellectually incurious and left-biased, she would know these facts and report truthfully.
