Palin’s Foreign Policy Experience

Posted by karmalily on August 31, 2008

George Stephanopoulos: But she has no national security experience.

Cindy McCain: You know, she – the experience that she comes from is with what she’s done in the government.

And, also, remember, Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia. So it’s not as if she doesn’t understand what’s at stake here.

I don’t really think I need to comment.

    And the community organizer has more experience? Seriously? She did at least run a city, then a state before her nomination. What leadership experience was it that Mr. Obama has again? Going to a racist anti-american church for over 20 years? Being good buddies with a known and admitted terrorist? Voting present on important issues to cover his future political ass? Well at least good ol “Biden my time” Joe Biden has that leadership experience that he picked up in the military. Oh wait……he dodged the draft 5 times until finally being declared unfit due to asthma. You libs kill me with this bs experience crap. Sarah got more leadership experience as a point guard on her high school basketball team than “the anointed one”.

    There is an awful lot at stake. The World is not the sheltered idea most Americans have of it (read on Wright Mills and The Power Elite). Ultimately the leaders are not the answer. What are YOU willing to fight for?

    Well I believe the community organizer who served in his state’s senate from ’97 – ’04 and served in the nation’s senate from ’04 – present day does have more experience than Palin. To put Palin’s experience as mayor of Wasilla in perspective, the town has a population a little higher than 7,000. Granted she does have some executive experience, as a governor of a state with roughly 670,000 people. Those numbers aside, because we know statistics don’t tell the whole story, Palin doesn’t have the national or global connections Obama has. Do you think she could go to Berlin and get 200,000 Germans to proudly wave the American flag? Sadly, the only time we see the flag being waved around the world anymore is when its burning.

    Talking about covering one’s political ass, look at Mccain’s voting record. The self-proclaimed maverick made a deal with the neo-conservative fanatics to get his shot at making history as an American president. The only way he was able to gain any political traction with his party was to vote in favor of Bush more than 90% of the time. He may have experience, but it seems he cannot exercise the right judgment and vision to lead this country.

    But will Barack even wave our flag? He’s against American tradition… which I wouldn’t always consider a bad thing, but in this case, I must.

    Obama was on the Senate Foreign Relations Cmte, and has a team of bipartisan team of foreign policy advisers composed of people from every administration since Kennedy.

    What now bitches?!

    His wife says “America is a mean country”, and she was proud to be an American for the first time in her life when he was nominated.
    Look I certainly don’t think either ticket is perfect, but if one has to choose the lesser of two evils, you better vote republican. If you want your taxes to rise, our military to be dumbed down and a ridiculous nationalized health care system, vote for hussein obama. Oh yeah, forget keeping your right to bear arms.

    Michelle obama never said that this was a mean country. More right wing disinformation.

    Said by her at a rally in Wisconsin……Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

    At least he HAS a voting record! Osama Obama has a clear record of voting “Present!” on important issues. Seriously I would love for one of you delusional obama koolaid drinkers to tell me what qualifies your boy to be president? Tell me one thing he has done in his career that makes him qualified to be the leader of the free world? Why should we ignore his known and admitted ties to an unrepentant terrorist?
