LAKEWOOD, Co - Republican Sarah Palin snubbed President Barack Obama in a speech about the killing of Osama bin Laden.
During a military appreciation rally Monday in Lakewood, Colorado, outside of Denver, the former vice-presidential candidate applauded the military and a former president for their part in taking down the terrorist, but never mentioned President Obama.
"God bless all the brave men and women in our military and our intelligence services who carried out a successful mission to bring Osama bin Laden to justice," Palin said. "We thank President Bush for having made the right calls to set up this victory."
Conservative voices in Washington have grudgingly praised President Obama over the U-S special forces operation that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
Like Palin, conservatives on Capitol Hill suggest the plan was successful because Obama followed polices launched by former President George W. Bush.
