Has anybody else been watching her interview with Charlie Gibson. All I can say she looks really uncomfortable and sometimes I cant help but laugh with how uncomfortable she seems.

The woman been a candidate for VP (not President, like Obama) for less than two weeks now, and she get's the "hardball questions", not the "softball questions" that Obama has been given by the "infatuated" press. Be curious how Obama would answer Charlie Gibson's interview. Of course, Obama has had much more time to prepare.

She should not run for VP if she cannot answer questions better than that. Try again in 2012.

She actually solidified the point that she has foreign policy qualifications because "from Alaska, you can see Russia."

I have no desire to continue about that interview. There's really no need.

Charlie missed a great follow up question when SP said that there were some mistakes made in the Iraq war...so simple...What mistakes do you think were made ?

There's so much that can be said about how embarrassing that interview was for this Country that basically it can't be summarized...a transcript of the entire interview would need to be posted...yet the highlights would have to be her quote about her insight into Russia's activities "because you can see it from Alaska" and her having no clue what Bush's doctrine is. The fact that anyone can take her seriously after that interview is a very scary thing.

This is from this morning's Washington Post, a newspaper not exactly supportive of the Republicans, and even the expert's they spoke with agree that Palin had a right to be confused by the question of does she support the "Bush doctrine" as there is not just one single "Bush doctrine", Indeed there seems to at least "seven" distinct doctrines, according to Peter D. Feaver, who was a as a staff member on the National Security Council. So Gibson's question to Palin was misleading as he did not indicate initially which doctrine he was talking about.

quote:
Many Versions of 'Bush Doctrine'
Palin's Confusion in Interview Understandable, Experts Say

By Michael Abramowitz
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, September 13, 2008

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin seemed puzzled Thursday when ABC News anchor Charles Gibson asked her whether she agrees with the "Bush doctrine."

Intentionally or not, the Republican vice presidential nominee was on to something. After a brief exchange, Gibson explained that he was referring to the idea -- enshrined in a September 2002 White House strategy document -- that the United States may act militarily to counter a perceived threat emerging in another country. But that is just one version of a purported Bush doctrine advanced over the past eight years.

Peter D. Feaver, who worked on the Bush national security strategy as a staff member on the National Security Council, said he has counted as many as seven distinct Bush doctrines. They include the president's second-term "freedom agenda"; the notion that states that harbor terrorists should be treated no differently than terrorists themselves; the willingness to use a "coalition of the willing" if the United Nations does not address threats; and the one Gibson was talking about -- the doctrine of preemptive war.

"If you were given a quiz, you might guess that one, because it's one that many people associate with the Bush doctrine," said Feaver, now a Duke University professor. "But in fact it's not the only one."

This debate may ordinarily be little more than cocktail chatter for the foreign policy establishment, but political blogs were buzzing yesterday over Palin's entire interview with Gibson, including the confusion about the doctrine. Liberals said it was yet another case of Palin's thin grasp on foreign policy, while conservatives replied that she handled herself well by putting the question back on Gibson.

After she asked Gibson to clarify what he meant, the anchor pressed Palin on whether the United States has "a right to make a preemptive strike against another country if we feel that country might strike us."

"Charlie," Palin replied, "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. In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend."

The campaign of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama directed reporters to online commentary about the exchange. "What Sarah Palin revealed is that she has not been interested enough in world affairs to become minimally conversant with the issues," journalist James Fallows wrote on TheAtlantic.com. "Many people in our great land might have difficulty defining the 'Bush Doctrine' exactly. But not to recognize the name, as obviously was the case for Palin, indicates not a failure of last-minute cramming but a lack of attention to any foreign-policy discussion whatsoever in the last seven years."

Conservatives ridiculed such reasoning. "What a bunch of nonsense," Andrew C. McCarthy wrote on National Review Online. "Peanut gallery denizens like me, who don't have states to run and who follow this stuff very closely, disagree intensely among ourselves about what the Bush Doctrine is."

Outside foreign policy experts offered different reads on the question. Richard C. Holbrooke, who served key posts in both the Clinton and Carter administrations, said he saw the 2002 National Security Strategy of the White House as the critical statement of a Bush doctrine. (The White House staff member who helped draft the 2002 document, Stephen E. Biegun, now serves as Palin's foreign policy adviser.)

The strategy document itself articulates the principle as follows: "The greater the threat, the greater is the risk of inaction -- and the more compelling the case for taking anticipatory action to defend ourselves, even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy's attack. To forestall or prevent such hostile acts by our adversaries, the United States will, if necessary, act preemptively."

According to Holbrooke, "the core point is that the Bush people were extremely proud of it and they presented it as a historical breakthrough."

But one of the drafters of that document demurred at investing the statement with too much weight. "I actually never thought there was a Bush doctrine," said Philip D. Zelikow, who later served as State Department counselor under Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. "Indeed, I believe the assertion that there is such a doctrine lends greater coherence to the administration's policies than they deserve."

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, said he thought there was no "single piece of paper" that represents the Bush doctrine, but said several ideas collectively make up the doctrine, including the endorsement of preventive war and the idea that there is such a thing as a "war on terror."

"There are many elements to the Bush doctrine," he said.

In an interview, Bush press secretary Dana Perino said that "the Bush doctrine is commonly used to describe key elements of the president's overall strategy for dealing with threats from terrorists." She laid out three elements:

"The United States makes no distinction between those who commit acts of terror and those who support and harbor terrorists. . . . We will confront grave threats before they fully materialize and will fight the terrorists abroad so we don't have to face them at home. . . . We will counter the hateful ideology of the terrorist by promoting the hopeful alternative of human freedom."

Bush, she added, "is comfortable with the way I just described it."

I don't think so Jon.....I don't believe she even knows the rules of how to play Jacks...unless she's already been briefed.

Rules for Jacks

Ones Scatter all jacks upon the playing surface by a single movement of the right hand. Toss the bail, pick up one jack, and after ball has bounced once, catch the ball in the same (right) hand. Transfer the jack to the left and proceed as before until all jacks are in the left hand.
2. Twos - Same as 1. except pick up two jacks at one time. Then the next time pick up three and so on.
3. All jacks and ball in right hand. Toss ball upward, lay down all jacks and catch ball in right hand. Throw ball up again, pick up all jacks, and catch ball in right hand.
4. EGGS in BASKET - Scatter jacks, toss ball, pick up
one jack, right hand only used, and while ball bounces once, transfer jacks to the left hand, then catch ball with right hand. When all jacks have been picked up and transferred to the left hand, the jacks are all put in the right hand and scattered again. Proceed thru twos, threes, etc.
5. CRACK THE EGGS - Scatter jacks with right hand.
Toss the ball with right hand and while ball bounces once, pick up one jack with right hand, ?crack? (tap) it on the playing surface, and catch the ball in right hand which is still holding the jack. Transfer jack to the left hand and proceed as before until all jacks are picked up. Scatter again and continue thru twos, etc.
FOULS AND MISSES
1. Using wrong hand to catch the ball.
2. Failure to pick up proper number of jacks required by ones, twos, etc.
3. Clothes burn. Allowing the ball or jacks to touch the body or clothing while catching the ball, except the hand used to catch the ball.
4. Two hands. Catching the ball with both hands.
5. Drops. Failure to hold the ball or jacks until movement is completed.
6. Touching any other jack while attempting to pick up a jack or group of jacks.

There are many things that concern me about Mrs. Palin's ability to lead this country if called to do so. Here's one of them:

By Anne E. Kornblut
Washington Post Staff Writer
12/09/08 --- "Washington Post" -- FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska, Sept. 11 -- Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would "defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans."

The idea that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a view once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself. But it is widely agreed that militants allied with al-Qaeda have taken root in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion.

Remarks: She categorizes all Muslims in one group. She doesn't seem to know there were no Iraqi's on any of the planes. The then wants to inspire the troops that she is sending her own son over there to fight with them, when in reality, here is what he will be doing.

Pvt. 1st Class Palin is being sent to Iraq with the Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division. Palin, 19, will be deployed to northern Iraq and will be primarily tasked with protecting and helping transport the deputy commander of his unit, Lt. Col. Michael W. Smith. His position is one of dismounted infantryman.

Remarks: A dismounted infantryman helping to transport the deputy commander of his unit around? A military chauffeur is hardly equivalent to anyone who is fighting in combat.
so what can we conclude? Either she does not know what he will be doing, or she is a hypocrite. Either way, is someone with this outlook fit to lead our country as a President if called to do so?

The Biden - Palin debate should be illustrative.

As Miss Sarah has claimed to be experienced re: her Alaska state government experience, how are things in Alaska?

The State of Alaska reports these statistics:

Domestic Violence:

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injuries and homicide for American women.
50% of female homicide victims in America are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
Alaska ranks among the top 5 states in the nation for per capita rates of domestic violence. The rate of Alaskan women being killed by a partner is 1.5 times the national average.
PRAMS data (1991-1994) revealed that 13% of women (1 out of 8) who had recently given birth had been physically hurt by someone close to them before or during pregnancy. This number does not include the emotional abuse.

Pregnant teens are at a particularly high risk of abuse during pregnancy--PRAMS data for 1991-94 indicates that 27% of teens who have just given birth have experienced domestic violence. Anchorage had a high rate of teen mothers experiencing domestic violence--32%.

Sexual Assault:

Since 1976, Alaska has ranked in the top five states in the nation for the highest rate of reported rape per capita.

In 1993, Alaska ranked 1st in the nation: highest per capita incidence of rape.

Alaska has 6 times the national average of reported child sexual assault.

1 in 4 girls before the age of 12 and 1 in 6 boys before the age of 18 nationally will be sexually assaulted.

Fairbanks Health Center surveyed 419 clients over a 3-week period and found that 24% reported physical abuse in the past 6 months while 39% reported some form of sexual abuse (1995).

In 3 out of 4 reported cases, the victim knew the offender, the most commonly reported type of sexual abuse is a father who commits incest with his daughter--usually the eldest daughter.

As many as 4 out of 5 offenders were sexually assaulted as children.

One-third of incest victims' mothers were sexually abused as children.

Alaska congressional candidate Diane Benson, a survivor of repeated sexual assaults, said Monday a major focus of her campaign will be to help other women overcome violence and indifference.She said a specialist helped with her post-traumatic stress disorder from the attacks. But other women don't have the money or access to get the help they need.

Benson said she was abused while growing up in foster care and later raped three times.

"I was raped twice as a teenager and I was raped at the age of 20," Benson said. "I was raped at knife point in a parking lot, I was raped and shot at in Fairbanks, a pellet catching me in the leg ... in all those cases for me, no one did any time for the crime, nothing happened to the perpetrators."

She said Fairbanks police believed the attacker's story when she tried to report that rape and shooting, which happened she was 18.

A Ketchikan officer wanted her for himself when she reported an attempted rape there when she was a young teenager, she said.

S.T.A.R., Standing Together Against Rape is one of the programs that offers support and education to Alaska's women.

Theresa Sheppard, who works the front desk at Standing Together Against Rape, said the last time she was assaulted was in a place where she thought she would be safe for sure: the Bethel hospital.

It was almost five years ago. She was being treated for stomach problems when a drunk man somehow made it through security to her room.

Sheppard said in a later interview that many people don't know what to say. The Yup'ik culture says don't talk about it. She thinks it's time to get the words out, to acknowledge the truth, to deal with it.

"It hurts to talk about it. At least I don't cry anymore. But if it will help somebody out there to talk ..."
The Alaska Network on Domestic and Sexual Violenceconducted a public opinion poll in 2006, which higlighted some interesting data:



• 49.3% think Alaska is ranked among the top states for sexual assault rates.

In fact, Alaska has the highest rates of sexual assault ("Table 5: Crime in the United State by State." FBI Uniform Crime Report, 2005).

• 83.1% think Alaska is ranked at or near the top for rates of domestic violence.

Alaska continuously ranks in the top five states. Alaska had the highest rate of female homicides
in 2004 (Violence Policy Center, 2006).

How Does Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Affect Alaskans?

• 74.7% have experienced or know someone who has experienced domestic violence or
sexual assault.
• 93% said they would intervene if they knew someone experiencing domestic or sexual violence, and 61.6% believe other members of the community would intervene.


What Legislative Measures do Alaskans Support?

• 81.1% did not know that funding for services providers did not increase between 1995-2005.

• 89% of those surveyed would support an increase in funding for service providers and 84.3% of registered voters surveyed would vote to increase funding.

• 90.4% support enhanced penalties for domestic violence and sexual assault perpetrators.

The selection of Sarah Palin to run as a candidate for Vice President of the United States, has focused the attention of the world on the State that she is currently governing. Perhaps she needs to answer how her views on abstinence only sex education, and her own positions about no abortion in cases of rape or incest play out in the State she is governing? A state where so many women don't have the luxury or desire to make her choices.


I will credit the Roveians...they have managed time and time again to get significant numbers of people to vote against their own interests, bamboozled by imagry of uber- patriotism and religion.

Women who vote for Palin are voting against their own interest.

Democratic women who vote for Palin just to vote for a woman are damned fools.

It would be interesting to hear how as Governor she deals with the excavation beds in Alaska. Just maybe dinosaurs never went extinct.

quote:
Alaska DINOSAURS!?
Do you picture dinosaurs in tropical jungles and hot climes? You probably doubt dinosaurs could have lived in northern Alaska. Yet dinosaurs not only lived here more than 65 million years ago, they thrived!

The story of dinosaurs in Alaska began by accident in 1961. A geologist explored along the Colville River on Alaska’s North Slope and discovered what he assumed were bone samples from Ice Age animals, probably no more than two million years old. In 1978, another geologist found dinosaur footprints near Big Lake on the Alaska Peninsula. The footprints and other imprintsfound elsewhere in Alaska in the 1970s revolutionized thinking. In 1984, a USGS geologist reexamined the 1961 fossils and identified them as the first dinosaur bones found in Alaska.

In the mid-1980s, paleontologists from the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Alaska at Fairbanks museum began exploring for dinosaur remains on lands managed by BLM along the Colville River region and elsewhere on Alaska’s North Slope. What they found was startling--dinosaur bones eroding from the Colville riverbank along a stretch more than 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle. The bones are in such abundance at this one location, that during the next few years more dinosaur bones are recovered than from all other known polar dinosaur bone localities in the world combined, including those from Russia, Canada, Australia, and Antarctica. Most people still don't know about this enormous discovery! The Colville River site is a world-class deposit that holds many secrets that can only be revealed through future scientific work.

In 1998, another exciting new another exciting new dinosaur discovery on Alaska’s North Slope included extensive dinosaur footprints called trackways. The trackways provide evidence of seven different meat- and plant-eating dinosaurs, and include very odd oval-shaped tracks of a yet unknown species. Equally significant, the tracks date from the middle Cretaceous period, about 90-110 million years ago, and are far older than the other bone fossils found on the North Slope.

In 2007, paleontologists used a excavated tunnel in the permafrost in the bank of the Colville River at a site about 375 miles north of Fairbanks to recover some of the best preserved dinosaur fossils ever found on the North Slope. This may even contain species never before discovered in Alaska or that are not found anywhere else but Alaska.

To date, at least 12 different types of dinosaurs have been fdiscovered on the North Slope. The first type found, and the one from which the greatest number of bones have been recovered, was an impressive plant-eater called Edmontosaurus. This is a hadrosaur, a large duck-billed dinosaur that walked on two legs, stood up to 10 feet tall, was more than 40 feet long, and weighed 3 or more tons when fully grown.

The surprise is that some of the same polar dinosaurs that lived in Alaska, also lived in areas as far south as Texas. Paleontologists hope to understand in the future how the polar dinosaurs survived the cold, whether they were warm-blooded like modern birds and mammals or coldblooded like modern reptiles, if dinosaurs migrated with the seasons, and why they became extinct.

It probably wasn't that cold up there. Global warming caused by dinosaur farts.


Please provide the proof that Sarah Palin believes Dinasoars lived 4,000 years ago.
