"The lesson of the last year is this: Foreign policy can’t be managed through the politics of personality. And our President would do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy had made once he was in office: that all the world’s problems aren't his predecessor’s fault. The problems that we face in the real world require real solutions. And we'd better get to it, because the risks that they pose are great and they’re grave. However, as Barry Goldwater said: "We can be conquered by bombs...but we can also be conquered by neglect by ignoring our constitution and disregarding the principles of limited government.""

Sarah Palin comments on the lesson we learned last year.
