SHARE Sarah Palin after Obama’s speech: ‘Go big or go home’

After President Barack Obama delivered his speech to the nation Wednesday night on Islamic State militants, Sarah Palin had one message for Obama: “Go big or go home.”

Palin took to Facebook, urging an all-out assault.

“War is hell. So go big or go home, Mr. President,” Palin wrote. “Big means bold, confident, wise assurance from a trustworthy Commander-in-Chief that it shall all be worth it. Charge in, strike hard, get out. Win. “

She also said Obama has failed, compared to his predecessor, George W. Bush.

“Tonight, President Obama pledged to fight Islamic militants “wherever they exist” with a very small coalition of the willing. (Can you blame foreign nations for not trusting the resolve of this president enough to join us? Right now he has a coalition of nine; President Bush had over 40 allied countries that could trust America’s leadership.)”

Later in her post, again reinforces her “go big” message.

“Go big and be real, Mr. President, if you’ve really changed your mind again and now wish to engage,” she wrote. “You must acknowledge reality: the organization calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is, in fact, “Islamic.” Not many of us pretend to be experts on the Muslim religion, but these terrorists obviously consider themselves Muslim and they believe what they’re horrifically doing to innocents is part of their “religion of peace.” So, you can use your soapbox to fiercely encourage the sane, civilized Muslims of the world to tell ISIS and all these sickening terrorists that they’re wrong. In the meantime, we must identify and understand the enemy by at least acknowledging their ideological motivation and identity. Our president is naive to ignore this.”

Palin, as you’d expect, wasn’t impressed with Obama’s speech.

“For the sake of peace-loving people in America and throughout the world, let’s hope Barack Obama means what he says when he uses terms like “defeating ISIS.” He is so inconsistent in leading a failed agenda that it’s virtually impossible to put any hope in his new promises, because either his past statements shrugging off ISIS as just a “JV squad” was all talk or tonight’s new terminology is just all talk.”
