Sarah Palin: 'Less Dithering, More Decisiveness'


"The U.S. has a tradition of course of Americans as we travel to foreign soil we don't criticize our President's foreign policy -- even as friendly soil as India is -- I won't criticize what his foreign policy has been. But, to answer your question, certainly there would have been more decisiveness, there would have been more commitment to making sure that those who are freedom fighters, who truly desire democracy and free and fair elections and respect for human rights and women's rights, that they know that America is on their side. And we have a rich tradition, a history in America of being on the side of those who would seek democracy, who would seek freedom, and free markets. So, yes, there would have been more decisiveness and less, though the word has been beaten to death, the word 'dithering'? I, heaven forbid you hear that again in national news over in the U.S. because it's used all the time. But less dithering, more decisiveness." -Sarah Palin, while at a speaking engagement at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi.

Yes, you heard/read that correctly. Mrs. Palin cites the "U.S. tradition" of not criticizing the President while on foreign soil -- then proceeds to criticize the President on foreign soil.
