In response to the question as to whether we cross the border into Pakistan, Palin says, "If that's what we have to do to stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should."
Because it seems that Palin's view on this is if anything further from McCain's view than Obama's is, here's McCain's response:
She shares my view that we will do whatever is necessary. The problem is that you don't announce it ... Teddy Roosevelt, "Speak softly, but carry a big stick". She shares my view on that.
Shorter McCain. We'll do exactly what Obama says he'll do, but we won't say it.
Not dissimilar from the debate:
I'm not prepared at this time to cut off aid to Pakistan. So I'm not prepared to threaten it, as Senator Obama apparently wants to do, as he has said that he would announce military strikes into Pakistan.
We've got to get the support of the people of -- of Pakistan. He said that he would launch military strikes into Pakistan.
Now, you don't do that. You don't say that out loud. If you have to do things, you have to do things
