The Political Pendulum

I know I’m being picky, but…

Posted on: September 26, 2008

I think that when Palin uses the word “our” in the sentence “…around our world” she illuminates why she is so unqualified.  She really believes that the rest of the planet thinks like she does.  I don’t belive that she is willing to engage our allies and build an opinion based on the informed concensus of our global friends.

COURIC: You met yesterday with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who is for direct diplomacy with both Iran and Syria. Do you believe the U.S. should negotiate with leaders like President Assad and Ahmadinejad?

PALIN: I think, with Ahmadinejad, personally, he is not one to negotiate with. You can’t just sit down with him with no preconditions being met. Barack Obama is so off-base in his proclamation that he would meet with some of these leaders around our world who would seek to destroy America and that, and without preconditions being met. That’s beyond naïve. And it’s beyond bad judgment.

COURIC: Are you saying Henry Kissinger …

PALIN: It’s dangerous.

COURIC: … is naïve for supporting that?

PALIN: I’ve never heard Henry Kissinger say, “Yeah, I’ll meet with these leaders without preconditions being met.”
