Palin Stumped On “Bush Doctrine”
September 11th, 2008, 9:36 PM EDT

During the Charlie Gibson interview on ABC, Gov. Sarah Palin seemed unprepared for a question concerning President Bush’s foreign policy doctrine of preemptive war.


Gibson: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?



Palin: In what respect, Charlie?



Gibson: What do you interpret it to be?



Palin: His world view?



Gibson: No, the Bush Doctrine enunciated in September 2002 before the Iraq war.



Palin: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell-bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership - and that’s the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy - is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better.



Gibson: The Bush Doctrine, as I understand, is we have the right of anticipatory self-defense. That we have right to preemptive strike on any country we think is going to attack us. Do you agree with that?



Palin: Charlie, if there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people we have every right to defend our country.

Oh...the Mossad is going to just love her!

As easy to manipulate as the Bushbarians. Is that why she was chosen?

Well, once she gets half a clue on what the Bush Doctrine means, she could easily declare "open season" on the middle east as well.

This Salon article asks:

Where is the debate over the Bush Doctrine?
Quote:
Sunday Sept. 14, 2008 10:48 EDT

Before it became clear that Sarah Palin had never heard of it, nobody -- including the presidential candidates themselves -- ever had difficulty answering questions about what they believed about the Bush Doctrine, nor ever suggested that this Doctrine was some amorphous, impossible-to-understand, abstract irrelevancy. Quite the contrary, despite some differences over exactly what it means, it was widely understood to constitute a radical departure -- at least in theory -- from our governing foreign policy doctrine, and it is that Doctrine which has unquestionably fueled much of the foreign policy disasters of the last eight years.

In 2003, the American Enterprise Institute's Thomas Donnelly wrote an article entitled "The Underpinnngs of the Bush Doctrine," and argued that "the Bush Doctrine, which is likely to shape U.S. policy for decades to come, reflects the realities of American power as well as the aspirations of American political principles"; that it "represents a reversal of course from Clinton-era policies in regard to the uses of U.S. power and, especially, military force"; and "the Bush Doctrine represents a return to the first principles of American security strategy." Donnelly had no trouble understanding and articulating exactly what the Bush Doctrine meant: namely, a declaration that the U.S. has the right to -- and will -- start wars against countries even if they have not attacked us and are not imminently going to do so:

Taken together, American principles, interests, and systemic responsibilities argue strongly in favor of an active and expansive stance of strategic primacy and a continued willingness to employ military force. Within that context, and given the ways in which nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction can distort normal calculations of international power relationships, there is a compelling need to hold open the option of -- and indeed, to build forces more capable of -- preemptive strike operations. The United States must take a wider view of the traditional doctrine of "imminent danger," considering how such dangers might threaten not only its direct interests, but its allies, the liberal international order, and the opportunities for greater freedom in the world.
...

So, Johnny/Sarah, you want to be an extension of Bush/Cheney, you have to answer to the American people on this philosophical disaster.

The Bush Doctrine is simply a bunch of mumbo-jumbo which states that America can strike at will any nation that has anything America's president and his/her handlers want or need, and it will be done under the guise of that country's supposed "harboring" of "terrorists". Simple...even for intellectually challenged Ms. Mooseburger.

It's awful to contemplate the kind of simpering and demanding influence VP Palin will have on President McSame. :evil: :evil: :evil: :angryfire: :angry7:

She obviously didn't get the word, "Pssst! Sarah. Diiiiiistance yourself. Diiiiiistance yourself from the old boy."

I wonder if her earpiece stopped functioning.

I am sure that Ms. Mooseburger is never without her earpiece, in which she hears Karl Rove telling her exactly what to say.

Moose hunter / governator Sarah Palin says it's time to 'take off the gloves'.

Shucks, she's whippin' out so many low blows, I guess it wouldn't matter. But we suspect what she's really doing is trading in her pair for something only a true political hack would wear:
