Sarah Palin blunders during ABC interview
Sarah Palin tried to fake her way through her first interview with Charlie Gibson On ABC News tonight. I will agree to disagree with her on the issues that she does take a clear stand on but when asked by Gibson if she agrees with the Bush Doctrine, she obviously did not know exactly what he was talking about and responded in the abstract:”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,” Palin told ABC News’ Charles Gibson. “In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend, and that’s what a McCain-Palin administration would do.” Excuse me but this is a person that wants to be second in command and a heart beat away from controlling the largest power on earth. If she does not have a firm grasp on on history and politics then I do not want her in the drivers seat. The bush doctrine states that we have the right to wage preventative war against another country if we think they are a threat. Not only do I not think we have the the right to invade another country based on perceived threats, but on the anniversary of the Sept 11 attacks I fear that other countries could use this same reasoning to invade us. Sarah Palin was like a deer in the headlights when Gibson asked this question. Is this who we want to lead us?
