Sarah Palin sounded more like Ron Paul than Ronald Reagan regarding American foreign policy, when Chris Wallace asked her about Afghanistan on Fox News Sunday.
Three wars that we're going engaged in today and our country nearing bankruptcy, we have to rethink everything that we're doing with foreign aid and with foreign intervention. We have got to make sure that it' America's interest first being met in each one of these nations. And if there is an opportunity to, say, in Afghanistan with General Petraeus' guidance, to back out a little bit perhaps sooner than we have because of these conditions that have changed most recently, then I would support that.
Palin basically uses the same language that President Obama often employed when asked about Iraq during the 2008 campaign. The argument runs something like this: 'Of course our troops can win and I believe in General Petraeus, but its probably time to get out.'
