Of course, they called her names and mocked her. Time for liberals to admit they were wrong and Palin was right.
...In October 2008, after Russia's invasion of neighboring Georgia emerged as a foreign policy flashpoint in the homestretch of a heated campaign, Palin told an audience in Nevada, "After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next."
Her prediction was derided by Foreign Policy magazine as "strange" and "extremely far-fetched," but Palin, frequent media antagonist that she is, couldn't resist crowing about how events have played out...
From Foreign Policy Magazine, October 22, 2008:
Speaking Tuesday at a rally in a Reno, Nevada, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin had a little fun with her counterpart on the Democratic ticket, thanking Joe Biden for warning Barack Obama's supporters to "gird your loins" for an international crisis if the Illinois senator wins.
Palin helpfully offered four scenarios for such a crisis, one of which was this strange one:
After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.
As we've said before, this is an extremely far-fetched scenario. And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine's pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don't see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel. Watch the upcoming parliamentary elections in December to see if Moscow gets the pliable new government it wants.

They will never, ever apologize to her. I'm not only talking about the libs/dems, but also about the moderate Republicans who fell for the anti-Palin, she's an idiot crap. Now who's the idiot? Not Palin.

Romney was right about Russia also.
McCain also noted that during the 2012 campaign, Mr. Obama criticized and even mocked Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for labeling Russia "our number one geopolitical foe." Romney was right, McCain said.
"This president believes the cold war was over," McCain said. "Vladimir Putin doesn't believe the cold war is over."
