I am still waiting for Foxnews and Limbaugh and friends to turn liberal overnight when the money is in it. Then all these morons who lapped it up for years will see how they got played with the divisive stuff.

Does that mean she also supports Ron Paul's stance of cutting all aid to foreign countries including Israel?

So why we need to support Israel . They can take care of self or apply for statehood.
That money would better serve the poor in this country. You have no legit argument . Just talking points . My taxes are for AMERICANS . Bases around the world do not support the American PEOPLE but business interest onl . Screw that .

Um, she might have been 15 years when she supported Pat Buchanan or Steven Forbes. They're anti-war. I'm not really that fond of any of them, but Pat Buchanan is better than GWB. He never would've got us into the wars we're still in whereas Al Gore and Bush supported them (yes, I know Al Gore said he didn't support the Iraq War, but he knows damn well he supported it.)

Will she endorse him outright?

I think she might, because she may have once supported Pat Buchanan. Pat Buchanan isn't anti-war to the degree that Dr. Paul is, but I don't think Palin was always a neocon. She did spend like crazy as governor though, but I think she realizes that was a mistake.
This is a standard example of your distorted view of reality. In that clip, Palin isn't giving a broad endorsement to Paul's foreign policy. She isn't advocating an overall non-interventionist foreign policy. She's playing the standard GOP card of criticizing Obama over the legalities of Libya. That is all she is doing. When you can find an example of her criticizing the Bush administration over neo-con foreign policy, then you may have something. Until then, you are just failing to see the distinction between partisanship and ideological principle. This is clearly the former and not the latter.

You see in things what you want to see.

That senile old phuck needs to climb in a time capsule and go back in time like 40 years ;)

I didn't watch the video. I don't remember reading anything about Libya in the editorial.
