Governor Sarah Palin was asked another spontaneous question on the road over the weekend, from a Temple University graduate student in Philadelphia, while at a campaign stop at a Philly Cheesesteak restaurant.
After being asked about crossing the border into Pakistan to strike at terrorists if need be, Palin replied: “If that’s what we have to do to stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should!”
Palin’s reply, of course, sounds familiar to something Obama said in the recent debate: “Nobody talked about attacking Pakistan. Here’s what I said. And if John wants to disagree with this, he can let me know, that, if the United States has al Qaeda, bin Laden, top-level lieutenants in our sights, and Pakistan is unable or unwilling to act, then we should take them out. Now, I think that’s the right strategy; I think that’s the right policy.”
McCain almost can’t contain himself in the clip above, when responding to George Stephanopoulos about the comment, and taking back what Palin said.
The McCain campaign is scared to death to let this woman speak out on her own. Check the clip on the right above. A McCain aide is already saying that Thursday’s debate will be unfairly stacked against her, and moderator Gwen Ifill will “have to answer” to someone if she asks tough questions.
