From USA Today:
“I liked what he said,” Palin told us in a phone interview. “I talked too in my book about the fallen nature of man and why war is necessary at times.” For Palin, that view strikes close to home: Her eldest son, 20-year-old Track, is an Army infantry member who recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq.
“I’m on my knees more than ever praying for his safety along with all of his fellow troops,” Palin said. “Of course, war is the last thing any American, I believe, wants to have to engage in, but it’s necessary. We have to stop these terrorists over there.”
Conservatives shouldn’t worry. Palin isn’t going soft on Obama. The former Alaska governor went on to say that former president George W. Bush “did a great job of reminding Americans every single day that he was in office” of the lessons of the 9/11 attacks. “By the way, I’d like to see President Obama follow more closely in the footsteps of George Bush and his passion for keeping the homeland safe,” Palin added.
