They are all governors that ran for the highest office (s) in the U.S. and none of them had any experience in foreign affairs worth noting.
That’s why the question, “How much foreign policy experience does Sarah Palin have?” is so bogus.
- Prior to entering office Bill Clinton had virtually no foreign policy experience. He was a Governor of Arkansas and like Sarah Palin, he had little experience in foreign affairs. Affairs of the heart, don’t count! (Sorry, the devil made me do that!)
- The same can be said of George Bush 43 , Governor of Texas. Have we all forgotten, that prior to being elected to the office his only experience abroad was almost non existant. Have we all forgotten why Cheney became VP?
- Does the name Jimmy Carter ring a bell, Governor of Georgia, also sans foreign policy experience?
- Ditto for Ronald Regan.
Ronald Reagan was completely inexperienced and had great success: negotiated arms reduction with the Soviets, urged Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin wall, which actually happened during George Bush’s presidency.
The fact is, Sarah Palin governor and commander in chief of Alaska’s National Guard has more experience than Obama. Sarah Palin took a two day tour of Kuwait during July of 2007, a full year before Obama gave his speech in Berlin in front of 200,000 Germans and left without first visiting the troops.
Bush 43, Clinton, Reagan, and Carter were all governors who ran for president (not vice president) and like Sarah they had little experience in foreign affairs to brag about.
This is now an issue because in the “Gotcha game of politics ” the MSM can’t stand the fact that McCain chose a great pick, hit one out of the ballpark, and didn’t tell them … except FOX NEWS, of course!
Hey, tell me again how there’s no double standard for women running for president, no sexism?
