What does the 90% of America who can't recognize the Bush Doctrine have to do with Palin? They aren't running for VP, and it isn't part of their job to keep up with politics. I believe there are people that aren't familiar with the Monroe Doctrine, but they don't get paid for being involved in politics and are not expected to know all about government..
She seemed to have no idea. I have heard about the Bush Doctrine in passing myself, but I don't specifically know what it is. If there are four policies to the "Bush doctrine," then perhaps she should familiarize herself with the four policies... Regardless, it was very plain that she had no clue as to what it was. She seemed to be caught off guard, licking her lips nervously, and decided to cobble together a bunch of words that hardly anyone could follow without rewatching the clip. o_O It seems to me that if she knew what she was talking about, she wouldn't speak in such an anxious, hurried manner, avoiding the yes/no part, and she continued to babble on even after it was explained to her... I'm trying to read her body language, and I notice her blushing, her strained voice, a face of surprise and anxiety, as if her mind is racing furiously behind a frozen expression, her tensed position, and an awkward smile. It simply seems to me she was very unsure of what the Bush Doctrine is. If she has heard it, I'd hope she would have looked it up and known a tad more about the subject than the rushed words she gave in the interview.
