Palin's ignorance is so apparent now, more than ever before. It's now November 7th, and even more is coming to light about her ignorance when it comes to other countries and her own...and this is the chick that wanted to be Vice President, geez. Thank goodness we all were educated enough to see through her and gave the vice president title to Biden.

This is reactionary and transparent.

I really don't understand why you'd have to have met with foreign leaders or visit another country to be knowledgeable on foreign policy. I'm not saying she is, I'm just saying that using the fact that she's only been out of North American once isn't really convincing.

Maybe I can meet with some world leaders and become an expert on foreign policy matters... not before making sure I stand on a hill and look at Russia from afar though.

I don't recall Obama going to such great lengths to essentially ban reporters from his meetings (someone correct me if I'm wrong, though), so I don't really see how the two situations/people can be compared.

I think my links got flagged, but you can see, you know, actual facts about the matter both on fact check and Fox news.

Here are links from both fact check and Fox news if you care to read the facts. http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/07/25/obama-cancels-visit-to-us-troops-in-germany/ http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/snubbing_wounded_troops.html

Piper, the false rumor about Obama canceling a visit to wounded soldiers due to press restrictions has been debunked.

I believe Palin has a press corps that travels with her too. And Obama did invite the press to go with him abroad. They were there for most of the good stuff. Except for the meeting that was suppose to take place with the wounded soldiers. He sat that one out because the press wasn't allowed.

Apparently, not even Fox sees the Palin situation as equal to the Obama meetings.

The major networks are pissed. I just read on ABC news that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox threatened not to show any footage of Palin since the McCain campaign refused to let anyone in (besides pool photographers), so the campaign finally relented.

I believe Obama took the media with him when he toured abroad. They had plenty of opportunities to see him in action.

So the media was in on this meeting for like a cool 29 seconds before they were booted -- interesting. Why "kid gloves" with Palin??? http://teamsugar.com/user/dreamsugar/blog/2070321

So, will Palin be taking questions after the meeting?

Barack Obama did not have reporters present when he took his world tour and met with Sarkozy and PM Brown. They met reporters AFTER they had their private meeting. Brave of him to not have reporters in on those meetings. Wonder how he handled the handshakes.

Brave of her to ban reporters. Obviously, there's some doubt as to how well she'll handle these handshakes.

Hmm. Well, now she can say that she has foreign policy experience because she's actually met foreign leaders. That's a step up from the "being able to see Siberia from Alaska" argument.

Toner logs! No, it was a bastardization of the name of the family from the tv show, the torkelsons.

I know, what's up with this? What was torgleson an anagram of? Rot on legs?
True-Song True-Song 7 years
Sorry! I kept the same avatar. Imagine how confusing otherwise. When I signed up, I didn't think I'd be commenting that much so I didn't put much thought into it. But True Song is an anagram for sturgeon, like the fish.
