Where did her experience show when she could not answer certain foreign policy questions?Have you ever heard of her talking in dept about any national or international policy questions?Say what you will but should a President of the United States of America have gone to 5 different collegesin 6years before they graduated from a very mediocre school?She has only ever traveled to Canada. Travelling gives you perspective and insight into the way things are outside of your usual surroundings.It [B]EDUCATES[/b] in the ways of the world.So you wanna insist that "left wing media" is trying to destroy her?Is the left wing media all over the world also trying to do the same?She has absolutely no credibility anywhere in the world.They have conservative periodicals all across the globe.Those that have embraced former President Bush,Regan and w.Bush.None of them think highly of her.Some of you will "say what do we care about what those countries think of our political candidates"?It's actually about who cares and why rather than what.The reasons behind why they feel the way they do.They(the world) are free to feel they way they do because they have no "horse in this race".No political party.No special interest.Ths makes them impartial.They can see clearer than what some want to be true but isn't.This will make many people mad.This is surely not my intent.However I do think that until AMERICANS think in terms of whats good for the country instead of what is just good for themselves and themselves locally only,we will never solve our really big problems.

Well since Bush didn't know what his "Doctrine" was either, how could anyone ese know... Do you?

There is a lot in the Bush Doctrine...from the top of my head...it gives America the right to attack a country preemptively. It's how we were able to invade Afghanistan after 9/11.

Bush wasn't the smartest man, but of course he knows what his own adminstration's doctrine is...do you have a source that shows Bush has no idea what his own doctrine is? That would be a good laugh if it were true.

That's supposed to be why and how we elect our leaders.They should know more than what we know.We should then hold them accountable for not knowing.

So in a nutshell, you have no clue either...?

Well it proves that both Obama and McCain were clueless too.

Of course, the press never asked Obama anything that require some knowledge either... Oh yeah, I admit he was asked about the College basketball standings.

That's why they elected the Prophet Obama. He knows all and is all things to all people. He came to save people like you from yourselves.

I was just saying that the attacks against her are not some conspiracy of her political opposition. She walked onto the international stage and was not ready. Everybody in the McCain camp saw it. They kept her under wraps as long as they could, using her as an image, and spoke out the moment they were free to do so.

The words from her own mouth - unprovoked and unedited, despite cries of media bias - have time and again revealed to anyone willing to listen that she simply lacks the intelligence, backbone, and grit to thrive in international politics.

She can't handle the heat, so she's getting out of the kitchen. It's a smart move and it may pay off for her if enough time passes and she educates herself more on international policy. But, as it is, she doesn't stand a chance outside of her relatively small social conservative, mostly rural white base. They may pack an auditorium, but they can't pack a ballot box.
I wish I could rep you 1000 times!! To me she comes off as not intelligent at all. She's just not smart enough, first impressions are lasting impressions. All I can remember is her saying "say it aint so joe," who would say that at a debate in front of the whole country! Besides she's a quitter.

Why do you want to make this about me?You know nothing about me.That would give me a logical conclusion that you probably know little about policies of state.Your statements reflect how poorly you would involve yourself on such matters without any knowledge of the subject at hand.In warfare that can be deadly.To misread or be uninformed about your opponent and make irrational or reckless moves with little thought or respect, rather than informing yourself of the situation before hand.Giving a logical well thought out reply would have impressed me more.One line smart-alex comments and insults are a very telling way of what you are about.I'm not about to start some sort of diatribe with you.People who cannot debate resort to insults and violence because they cannot think beyond their emotions.
Obama.He's our president all ready.Yogi Bear could have known more than Sarah Palin.Keep blaming everyone else.Better yet tell me what matters of state questions did he not know?Its one thing to give a less than perfect answer to a question.It another to avoid answering real questions altogether.I get why some people do not like Obama.His doctrine is not what some in this country find good for the country.In those regards ,its only a matter of perspective of whats important to the individual.That you just have to respect people for being the individual they are even though you do not agree.

Sorry ,but you cannot upset me.I have a better opinion of myself than what you or anybody else can have.Maybe its your feelings of inferiority that cause you to lash out.Not saying it is,but you should probably do some soul searching and find out why.Anyway sounds like your problem not mine.Just trying to help.I wish you well.
