President Obama's nuclear weapons reduction policy is "like a kid asking for a punch in the face," Sarah Palin said yesterday. "It's unbelievable," Palin told Sean Hannity. "It's like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of them says, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face. I'm not going to retaliate. Do what you want to with me.'"

People "are going to rise up and say: 'No more.' National security, national defense is the No. 1 job of the federal government," she added. On another topic, when asked if she feels embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele should step down over the sex-club expenses flap, Palin responded: "I think he's doing a great job." Palin made her remarks appearing with Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann on a special edition of Hannity's program in Minneapolis before an audience of people who had just attended a Palin-Bachmann rally, reports ABC News.
