USA Today is reporting, on their “On Politics” blog, that Sarah Palin is giving the President good marks for his speech today in Oslo. President Obama spoke of how there are times in which war is justified. “I liked what he said," Palin told USA Today in a phone interview. "I talked too in my book about the fallen nature of man and why war is necessary at times."
Newt Gingrich agreed, telling NPR’s “ The Takeaway”: “He clearly understood that he had been given the prize prematurely, but he used it as an occasion to remind people, first of all, as he said, that there is evil in the world.”
“I think having a liberal president who goes to Oslo on behalf of a peace prize and reminds the committee that they would not be free, they wouldn't be able to have a peace prize, without having force…I thought in some ways it's a very historic speech.”
