  • She is just the governor of Alaska--she didn't put Alaska there!!!! What is the significance of Arnold being the governor of California and it is soooo close to Mexico????SO what is the point of your question anyway?

  • The left wing media has blown a comment out of context.
    However, being governor of Alaska DOES IN FACT present foreign policy issues. Governor Palin has to deal with Russian bombers doing "practice" runs into US airspace - this in light of the oil that is now becoming accessible in the Arctic as the ice melts - and that Russia is already sending down subs and putting flags down there.

    I love that people voting for Barack Obama as the TOP OF THE TICKET love to harp on Palin's lack of foreign policy experience and she is #2 ON THE TICKET!!


    I also love that Obama supporters love to talk about that at all because as a US senator I think he bears a RESPONSIBILITY to visit other country's and meet other leaders and yet he hasn't.


    Sarah Palin, being the Governor of Alaska doesn't have that responsibility and yet she met all of them at the UN general assembly. SHE HAS MET MORE FOREIGN LEADERS THAN HE HAS!!!!!!!!!! At least she is making the effort. I am so disappointed with Americans skipping over this crucial point!!

    The point was because I have heard this so many times and I never understood why her being close to Russia was important.

  • "... Palin has to deal with Russian bombers doing "practice" runs into US airspace"

    No, she does NOT! Any violation of US air space is a FEDERAL responsibility and is that of the US Luftwaffe. Besides, how do you know of any such air space violations? Cite your source and show they were not accidental.

    " - this in light of the oil that is now becoming accessible in the Arctic as the ice melts - and that Russia is already sending down subs and putting flags down there."

    What the hell are you talking about? Submarines of virtually all Northern Hemisphere nations that have submarines have Arctic operations. Subs of all nations have been traversing the pole under the ice ever since the USS Nautilus showed it could be done. The Arctic Ocean is international waters and open to everyone. And what does putting a flag "down there" have to do with anything?
