"So we do cross border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan you think?," Rovito asked.

"If that's what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should," Palin responded, before moving on to greet other voters.

There is a BIG difference between Hot Pursuit and Invasion.

I suggest that you get a dictionary---- buddy'

Words are important, maybe not for knuckle draggers with Palin Derangement Syndrome ( PDS ) and an obsession with TaserGate

The Repubs will fare much better if they substitute in Fey for the real Palin in this Thursday's debate. Either way, her 15 minutes of fame are about up.

The lib inability to differentiate between his fiction and the real world is no where better demonstrated than here.
With specific reference to the Pak situation, any US commander who failed to actively pursue an attacker across a political boundary is unfit to serve. A sovereign nation has an obligation to not allow a n army to attack someone from within her borders.

Exactly, Walter. This has nothing to do with liberal inability to differentiate between fact and fiction. It has to do with the fact that Obama said clearly that he would take on the terrorists if Pakistan couldn't, or wouldn't, stop them from corossing hte border to attack US troops. McCain said whatever you do you don't mention what you even might do (oh, McCain is against Saber-rattling now. How inconsistent can you get?). Palin basically echoed Obama, bu then attempted to backpedal because what she was saying made sense but was inconsistent with her running mate.

So, given that you repeatedly and vociferously oppose Obama in these threads, what exactly is your point?

Funny reading this in hindsight of Obama getting Bin Ladin as promised.

Almost as funny as reading this with a mindset that Sarah Palin was once considered 'serious'!
