Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care
Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care

September 12, 2008 11:50 AM ET | Bonnie Erbe |


Sarah Palin's debut interview in a widely-touted exclusive on World News with Charles Gibson showed she has little knowledge of foreign policy and needs to study up on what she, herself, has said in the recent past. Will her fans care? Not a whit.

Witness her re-write of her own words. In the online version, Gibson played a clip of her describing the Iraq war as a "task from God." It was there. She said it. No ands, ifs or buts. But to Gibson, she went on to claim she was quoting Abraham Lincoln (no evidence of that in the original clip, which I have watched in full) and added:

I would never presume to know God's will or to speak God's words. But what Abraham Lincoln had said, and that's a repeat in my comments, was let us not pray that God is on our side in a war or any other time, but let us pray that we are on God's side.

When asked if she believed she was "sending [her] son on a task that is from God," Palin said:

I don't know if the task is from God, Charlie. What I know is that my son has made a decision. I am so proud of his independent and strong decision he has made, what he decided to do and serving for the right reasons and serving something greater than himself and not choosing a real easy path where he could be more comfortable and certainly safer.

Safe for her to avoid answering the actual question (yes, she did call the war, a la Taliban-speak, a "task from God") and wax poetic about her son. Great theatre. Bad interview technique.

The other low point of the session was her obvious lack of knowledge about the Bush Doctrine. Gibson had to explain to her that it was President Bush's 2002 declaration that the U.S. has a right to a pre-emptive strike against another country.

As the American Enterprise Institute has noted:

If nothing else, the Bush Doctrine, articulated by the president over the past eighteen months in a series of speeches and encapsulated in the new National Security Strategy paper released in September (2003), represents a reversal of course from Clinton-era policies in regard to the uses of U.S. power and, especially, military force."

Again, will it reduce the GOP base's enthusiasm for her? Not a mite. It will make them feel she's "more like them." And American presidential races are becoming more and more like high school popularity contests every four ye

Re: Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care
Just for the record, no one knows exactly what the "Bush Doctrine" is. Charlie Gibson sure didn't but that didn't stop the bastard from showing his ignorance and showing what a bombastic fool he is.

There is no single meaning of the Bush doctrine. In fact, there have been four distinct meanings, each one succeeding another over the eight years of this administration -- and the one Charlie Gibson cited is not the one in common usage today. It is utterly different.

He asked Palin, "Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?"

She responded, quite sensibly to a question that is ambiguous, "In what respect, Charlie?"

Sensing his "gotcha" moment, Gibson refused to tell her. After making her fish for the answer, Gibson grudgingly explained to the moose-hunting rube that the Bush doctrine "is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense."


Wrong.

Charles Krauthammer knows something about the subject because, as the Wikipedia entry on the Bush doctrine notes, he was the first to use the term. In the cover essay of the June 4, 2001, issue of the Weekly Standard entitled, "The Bush Doctrine: ABM, Kyoto, and the New American Unilateralism," he suggested that the Bush administration policies of unilaterally withdrawing from the ABM treaty and rejecting the Kyoto protocol, together with others, amounted to a radical change in foreign policy that should be called the Bush doctrine.

Re: Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care
Still More Confusion about the Bush Doctrine (Or, Krauthammer is Wrong)
Alexander F. Di Pippo
The recent exchange between Sarah Palin and Charles Gibson on the topic of the Bush Doctrine has incited a spirited discussion in the MSM and the blogosphere about what exactly the "Bush Doctrine" means.

On the one hand, the critics of Palin are utterly dismayed that she appeared to fumble when asked something that even your average preschooler should know. On the other hand, defenders of Palin have been criticizing what they take to be a Gibson's own misunderstanding of the issue. According to Gibson, the Bush Doctrine asserted the right to launch pre-emptive military strikes.

Some of Gibson's critics have been pointing out that the right to launch preemptive strikes is only one aspect or, to use Norman Podhoretz's term, "pillar" of the Bush Doctrine Others have been pointing out that, in the final analysis, there really is no one agreed upon meaning to the Bush Doctrine.

Today, in his Washington Post piece "Charlie Gibson's Gaffe" Charles Krauthammer entered the fray and sought to put the issue to rest once and for all. Krauthammer thought he was in a special position to do so because, according to Wikipedia, he was the person who first used the term. He writes,

I know something about the subject because, as the Wikipedia entry on the Bush doctrine notes, I was the first to use the term. In the cover essay of the June 4, 2001, issue of the Weekly Standard entitled, "The Bush Doctrine: ABM, Kyoto, and the New American Unilateralism," I suggested that the Bush administration policies of unilaterally withdrawing from the ABM treaty and rejecting the Kyoto protocol, together with others, amounted to a radical change in foreign policy that should be called the Bush doctrine.


There is only one problem: Wikipedia is wrong. The "Bush Doctrine" was in fact first introduced in a White House press briefing on October 8, 2001 by Karen Hughes, who was then Counselor to the President.

Karen Hughes: On Tuesday of last week, Tuesday, October 2nd, after his National Security Council meeting, he called me to the Oval Office and told me that he was preparing to launch a military operation and asked me to start thinking about an address to the nation. He was very aware that he would need to define the goals of the operation to the nation. ...And I have a quote here. He [President Bush] said, "The Bush administration will enforce its doctrine." And that's what he told me as part of explaining that the military operation would be part of a long and broad effort on a lot of fronts and that its goal would be to help disrupt the terrorist network in Afghanistan and clear the ground there for sustained operations.


The journalist then asked Hughes to elaborate.

Q: Can you define the Bush doctrine, which you said he would enforce? And, secondly, did the President ever try to -- did you ever hear him try to understand the motivation or explain the motivation, the character of bin Laden? Did he ever discuss bin Laden in those terms?

Karen Hughes: I'll leave the second half of that to Condi. The doctrine which he was referencing, Randy, was the statement he made very clearly in his joint session of Congress, that the countries who harbored terrorists would deliver the terrorists or share in their fate. That was what he was referring to in that.


In Bush’s own words, in the speech he delivered on September 20, 2001:


We will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.


This is the core of the Bush doctrine. States or nations that sponsor terrorism would not be treated any differently from stateless terrorist organizations (e.g., Al-Qaeda).
In my view, there are two main reasons for the confusion about the substance of the Bush Doctrine. First, most people are probably not aware that the Bush Doctrine amounted to a radical change in the way the United States dealt with states that sponsored acts of terrorism. The US had always targeted the organizations that carried out the acts, not the states that supported them. Second, one tends to conflate 1. the means of enforcing the Bush doctrine with2. the doctrine itself. Reserving the right to launch pre-emptive strikes against a nation that sponsors terrorism would, for example, be one way of enforcing the Bush Doctrine. But reserving that right already presupposes the principle that the Bush doctrine articulates.

So, Gibson is wrong and someone ought to update Wikipedia.

The "Bush Doctrine" is nothing but the Israeli Doctrine of Pre-emptive Destruction of Potential Threats. Israel has criminal and terrorists experts providing training for police departments all over the country to show the local police how to handle "criminals".

Why would we ask people from a country who can get along with absolutely no other country how to Win Friends and Influence People?

Palin lacks the intelligence to be our next vice president but sadly intelligence is lacking in her supporters so they have don't realize it and make excuses for her.

I just cant get over the fact that people actually believe that keeping the Republican party in office will change ANYTHING. I wish the Obama campaign would forget about Palin and let her dig her own grave, (which she will) and start focusing on the issues at hand.. Namely the sorry state of this nation, who created this mess (Republican policies) and how the Democratic party intends to fix things.

Im sooo sick of the bullshit slinging and lies (from both sides) I want substance and solutions.

OK, I’ve Had Enough of the Palin Gender Politics Game. Now I’m Really Pissed.
By Kate O'Hara - September 12, 2008, 11:58PM

I am a white woman headed toward 54 years of age. I have been an Obama supporter since the 2004 convention. I was a Title 9 athlete. I was the second class of women to graduate from a previously all male college. I entered a scientific field at the time dominated by men (genetics—Rosalind Franklin—who really discovered DNA—was my heroine. She didn’t win the Nobel Prize, the men did). I am a mother and a wife, a daughter, a sister, and an aunt. I am an immigrant and I fiercely love this country.

I always hoped that Hillary wouldn’t enter the race because I felt that she was so divisive at a time when we didn’t need divisiveness any more and because— sorry to say this HC supporters—I always was uneasy about the fact that she got where she was because of her husband. She carpet bagged into New York and won a seat many native New Yorkers craved and deserved and she ran her Senate race and her presidential campaign on the back of her husband’s campaign machine. The whole thing always made me uncomfortable, very uncomfortable. She was cashing in on paybacks of the worst kind. Her husband strayed, she stood by him, she was owed and she should be rewarded. It never felt right. That’s too bad for her, really it is, but when it comes to the future, I’m thinking about me, and my family, and my stepson in Kabul, not Hillary’s career.

Don’t get me wrong, I think she is smart, able, and tough, and with a few exceptions, I like her policies. I admire her in many ways.

I know now that I have already lost some Hillary supporters, who have screamed sexism when they don’t realize that sexism has nothing to do with it. They cannot accept the fact that those of us who didn’t support her just didn’t like her or trust her or like her policies, not because she’s a woman. I feel strongly that I do not need to be lectured about sexism. I lived it and still do. We women still live it. I know it when I see it and Obama supporters in general did not display sexism. Maybe the media did, but I really don’t think our candidate did. Believe me, my problem with Hillary had nothing to do with sexism.

But we are where we are. For now, I am grateful for Hillary campaigning for Obama and I’m sure if he wins, she will be rewarded with whatever she feels is her best place to contribute. I see and expect great things ahead for Hillary Clinton. She has a lot to offer and I am grateful.

But then comes Sarah Palin, one of the shallowest and most cynical tools of the Republican party—the ultimate exploitation of sexism. Hillary was never a tool. Never. She was never used by the Democrats, ever. She might have assumed much based on her time as First Lady but the party never belittled her—they rallied behind her, she was the presumptive nominee until she got out campaigned.

That is not the case for Sarah Palin, who was plucked out of nowhere and who is being used by a group of cynical old white men to manipulate and fool the American people. What the Republicans are doing with Palin is the height of sexism and I can’t believe they are getting away with it. And she easily could become President after a short period of time.

It hit me tonight as I was watching the network news while making dinner for my family, after working a 10-hour day myself, although I didn’t have to shoot any mooses (the new bar above which we women all must rise). It’s not enough to work and buy groceries anymore. Now we must shoot and dress our meat while wearing lipstick, designer glasses, sporting a beehive do, showing some cleavage, and making smarmy comments about community-oriented Americans. We need to be ambitious, sassy, cute, and athletic (although I’ve heard you can shoot a moose as easily as shoot a slow moving oak tree).

I live in Maryland, so I am in the Washington, DC media market, which also broadcasts to Northern Virginia. Even though Maryland and DC are strong Obama country, Virginia is wobbling. So we are getting hit with ads from both campaigns. There was an ad tonight from the McCain camp that alleged sexism by the Obama campaign. It was followed on the news by a clip from the Gibson suckfest with Palin where she said that Obama probably wishes he had picked Clinton (AS IF SHE IS THE EQUIVALENT OF CLINTON). I almost threw a carving knife at the TV screen. We have a rifle in the garage but I was too lazy to retrieve it. I was enraged. I didn’t watch the Gibson/Palin American Idol show and I didn’t want to see it broadcast in clips as if it were news. It belongs on Entertainment Tonight.

Here’s the thing ladies. Rove—who now controls McCain like Rasputin controlled Czar Nicholas and Goebbels controlled Hitler (and Coulter speaks for the Necons) thinks that women are stupid and easily manipulated. We are tools for their machine—we are more likely to vote than men—that is our only value. In their eyes, we are at best former officers in a sorority and at worst runners up in a Miss Wasilla contest. We will vote for the cutest girl even if she’s not very nice, because we want to be her best friend. We do that knowing that she hates us. That’s how Rove and McCain see us and Palin is happy to play along.

We all wish we were Sarah, so they think, because she has it all. A sexy snowmobiling husband, complacent kids, good skin, nice legs, a great OB/GYN, fantastic health insurance, great bennies, and the ability to follow directions. What she thinks about national security, healthcare for our children, education, rape, the war, stem cell research is just silliness, right? Who cares about that shit?

So tonight, to hear John McCunt run an ad about sexism, and to then hear Sarah Palin sit in the most contrived interview of all political time implying that she is the equivalent of Hillary Clinton, or any other thinking woman in America, was mind numbing, insulting, and degrading. The absolute cynicism, manipulation, and hatred of American women that the Republican campaign machine displays is frightening.

Speak up. Fight back. Register people to vote.

Here’s some context. I grew up in a country that sent unwed teenage mothers to live in laundries where they were mistreated and abused (sometimes beaten) by the Catholic church. That policy only stopped the year my father moved us from Ireland to London in 1968. I was 13. I am having flashbacks about this view of the world while watching McCain and Palin. They don’t respect women…they are merely tools to be exploited.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe Sarah Palin has a few good things to say in support of women and women’s issues, but how and when will we hear about them? When I heard that she supported a policy that charged rape victims for a DNA forensics kit needed to gather evidence against the alleged perpetrator, that was it for me. Alaska has one of the highest per capita rape rates in the country, and most of these women are Native American and Alaskan Indian women and most victims are in rural towns, like Wasilla. What the hell was her problem as a FEMALE mayor of one of those towns? Really, where is her fucking head? Little things mean a lot, and that meant a lot to me.

So, do what you can where you can to stop this madness. Speak out, educate your friends and family, volunteer for Obama, register people to vote.

Re: Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care
For the recored, out of the past 60 VP candidates only four or five any foreign affairs experience. Some of our presidents havent had any either.

John Edwards didnt have any. Neither does Obama. Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore didnt have any. Neither did Jimmy Carter. Steve Forbes is blank.

I dont remember Ron Paul having any foreign affairs experience to speak of either. And all of Edwards' affairs were with american women.

So why does Sarah have to be held to a higher standard?

I take it back. Bill Clinton had experience with Columbian drug lords....lol

Ain't that a damn shame that we the people were so uninformed about Cheney?
Shit if we had only known...oh that's right the election was stolen 2X...
Well this time we the people want to know who is a heartbeat away from the president.
Yeah Joe would have been fried for being a Zionist(doesn't he have dual citizenship? SHIT!...Biden should be fried too for declaring that he is a Zionist!!
Carter actually knew something about the world and proved it...yeah, he went up in flames over the Hostage Crisis.
And he was questioned about being a 'govenor from Georgia (one term), peanut farmer extraordinare'.

So stop with your tears. Either she can take it or she can't.
PMS doesn't rate in this race.

GOOD FOR US for looking so closely!!!

Re: Sarah Palin Displays a World-Class Ignorance of Foreign Affairs, but Her Supporters Won't Care
Since when did it become SO CRITICAL what a VICE PRESIDENTIAL candidate's so-called qualifications are?

This is race is down to Obama and SARAH, not McCain.

Charles Gibson is a first-class jerk. What an asshole.

Did anyone care when CHENEY was brought on with Bush? We didn't even give it a second thought. Chainsaw Cheney - and no one cared.

Did anyone give a shit when Jimmy Carter, govenor from Georgia (one term), peanut farmer extraordinare, became PRESIDENT fer Christ's sake?

And who was Carter's VP anyway? Anyone remember?
