Sarah Palin Challenges Pres. Obama to Debate

On Monday night, former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin challenged President Barack Obama to a debate.

Palin wrote on her Facebook page: “I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s ‘enemy of the week’ if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about."

In a recent fundraising video (below), Obama’s re-election campaign used footage of Palin saying the president wanted to go back to the era of slavery.

Palin said the “absurd” fundraising video took her remark “out of context,” but was “quite telling.”

Palin wrote: “It shows that our president sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed. And intended or not, now that his ad opens up the discussion of Barack Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas about his promised 'fundamental transformation' of our country, I welcome the media to join ordinary Americans in finally vetting Barack Obama.”
