Liberal high priest: Palin 'was right' about Obama's 'hopey-changey' promises


The man described as the Godfather of American liberalism stunned more than a few political wonks when he said he agreed with Sarah Palin’s warning of Barack Obama’s election promises being little more than a political Kabuki Dance, as reported by The Daily Caller on Aug. 21, 2013.

Hard left-leaning academic Noam Chomsky has been an icon to the liberal movement for over half a century.

Which may be why more than a few on the left frowned when he agreed that when then Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was right in her assessment of then-candidate Obama’s promise of “Hope and Change” as more sizzle than steak. Said the M.I.T. linguist:

I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this ‘Hopey-Changey stuff, she was right.

Low Information Voters Swallowed It Hook, Line And Sinker…

Chomsky went on to hammer not only Obama and his promises but wagged an accusatory finger at the political elites in the Democratic Party:

There was nothing there. And it was understood by the people who run the political system.

Chomsky recently made headlines when he blasted Obama for “running the biggest terrorist operation that exists, maybe in history.” As reported by The Washington Times on June 19, 2013, Chomsky accused the Obama Administration to being “dedicated to increasing terrorism, adding:

The drone assassination campaigns, which are just part of it.… All of these operations, they are terror operations.
