Sarah Palin Blames President Obama for Her Son’s Domestic Violence Arrest

Maybe the most infuriating thing about Sarah Palin is her inability to accept personal responsibility for anything. Her “team” can never do anything wrong. The fault always rests with the “liberal media” or the “Washington elite.” But that’s not all.

When she got a speeding ticket, she blamed Sammy Hagar.

When there was an oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, she blamed “extreme” environmentalists.

When “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson was suspended from his show for saying homosexuality led to bestiality, Palin blamed “intolerants.”

And yesterday, when talking about how her son Track was arrested for allegedly “[punching] his girlfriend in the eye, [kicking] her in the knee and then [holding] an AR-15 assault rifle near his head,” Palin knew exactly who to blame: President Obama.

My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to the country. And that starts from the top, and it’s a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder if they have to question if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question, though, that comes from our own president, where they have to look at him and wonder, ‘Do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?’

I don’t know what happened with her son, or how his supposed PTSD affected him in this instance, but this is just the latest irrational deflection from Palin. Is her family ever responsible for anything they do?

And if you’re going to blame Obama, why not blame the Republican-led House that slashed $1.4 billion from the Department of Veterans Affairs budget?

Give it another day and I’m sure Palin will say Planned Parenthood is somehow responsible for abstinence-promoter Bristol Palin getting knocked up before marriage. Twice.
