Obama vs. Palin on Nuclear Issue

President Obama versus Sarah Palin on the nuclear issue took an interesting direction.
Obama released a new nuclear policy early this week which disarms the United States of the use of nuclear weapons against countries without nuclear capabilities if they comply with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Earlier this week fresh after Obama's unveil of his nuclear policy, Palin went on the record to call the President's plan "unbelievable, no other administration would do it." Palin then compared Obama to a child who says "Punch me in the face, and I'm not going to retaliate."

Obama countered on ABC's 'Good Morning America' Friday "Last I checked, Sarah Palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues." Apparently the former Alaska governor's criticism of Obama's nuclear policy has hit a sensitive spot within the president. Obama went on to offer a general explanation: "I would say to them is that if the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff are comfortable with it, I'm probably going to take my advice from them and not from Sarah Palin." Obama would not comment any further on the issue and the interview went forward.
