Obama: 'Sarah Palin's Not Much Of An Expert On Nuclear Issues'

President Barack Obama had pointed words for former Alaska governor Sarah Palin this morning on ABC-TV.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos that aired on Good Morning America he "pushed back ... against critics who say his new nuclear weapons stance is too soft and leaves the United States vulnerable to attack":

Obama brushed off criticisms from former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin about his nuclear weapons policy.

"I really have no response. Because last I checked, Sarah Palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues," he said. ...

In an appearance on Wednesday on Fox News, Palin compared Obama to a kid in a playground who is asking for a punch in the face.

Palin, you'll recall, was the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee in the race against Democrat Obama and his running mate, now-Vice President Joe Biden.
