The principle of miring in indecision during a crisis until the march of time forces an action upon you
I feel like my guts are about to explode all over this McDonalds but the Engadine Doctrine states I should wait until my socks are soggy before going to the bathroom to deal with the crisis in my pants.

The thing that Sarah Palin has no idea of what it is or understanding of whatsoever.
CHARLIE GIBSON: Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?
SARAH PALIN: In what respect, Charlie? GIBSON: The Bush -- well, what do you -- what do you interpret it to be?
PALIN: His world view.
GIBSON: No, the Bush doctrine, enunciated September 2002, before the Iraq war.
PALIN: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership, and that's the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better.
GIBSON: The Bush doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense, that we have the right to a preemptive strike against any other country that we think is going to attack us.

opposing the impeachment of a corrupt president in order to weaken the president's party in an upcoming election
There are many reasons why George W Bush deserved to be impeached, his outrageous abuses of power,illegal warrantless wire taps (some of these were U.S. soldiers in Iraq calling home to their families), extraordinary renditions, torturing P.O.W.s etc. In the 2006 election voters soundly rejected the radical Bush agenda, but when Nancy Pelosi became Speaker Of The House she said impeachment was off the table. Keeping Bush in office severely weakened the Republican party and helped the Democrats win the White House and gain seats in Congress in the 2008 election. This is the Pelosi Doctrine.

The term "Castle Doctrine" is used when describing law that primarily relates to the use of deadly force in situations of self defence. In simple english, it is the idea that a persons home is their castle and that any unlawfull intrution is considered a threat. The homeowner is then legaly justified in using lethal force against the intruder.

The opposite of Castle Doctrine is "Duty to Retreat" A simple example would be a person walking down a street at night who is confronted by an assailant. Legaly, the victim must try to escape or "retreat" before resorting to lethal force. But if retreat is impossible, then the person is justified in using lethal force.

Castle Doctrine originaly only applied to a persons home. However, in modern times it has been applied in different laws to mean a persons property, not just inside the home. A pesons car is also defined as a part of the home. Thus a carjacking victim is justified in shooting their assailant. Some states apply a persons place of employment to fall under Castle Doctrine.

Castle Doctrine also makes it next to impossible for an assailant (Or their family) to sue their victim after the fact.
The homowner shot and killed the burglar in her house. Her actions where justified under the "Castle Doctrine" law's of that state.
