VIDEO: Obama says Fox News contributor Sarah Palin is "not much of an expert on nuclear issues"

Blog ››› ››› KARL FRISCH

President Obama sat down with ABC's Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos in Prague for an interview in which the pair discussed his efforts at nuclear arms reduction.

Asked by Stephanopoulos to respond to Palin's ummm enlightening criticism that his policy is "kind of like getting out there on the playground...a bunch of kids ready to fight and one of the kids saying 'go ahead, punch me in the face and I'm not going to retaliate,'" the President said the Fox News contributor is "not much of an expert on nuclear issues."

Of course, it was only a matter of time before the former half-term Alaska Governor's Fox News colleagues sprang to her defense saying Obama wasn't acting "presidential." I guess we should just leave the hard hitting analysis to a trio of right-wing media hacks that act nothing like journalists:

Imagine what they would have said if Obama avoided the question and refused to discuss Palin entirely.

Palin really is like catnip to the media. Perhaps we can get someone in the White House press corps to lodge daily requests for comment with press secretary Robert Gibbs on the President's opinion of Palin's Facebook status updates.

Sigh.
