The MSM Tries But Governor Palin Has A Very Strong Record

David Nelson, of the Leader Telegram, wrote a very telling piece on how irrational and wrong the left is about Governor Palin. He briefly touched on Governor Palin’s successes as governor of Alaska but his point is clearly made.

Why does the left have such a preoccupation with bashing Sarah Palin? What is it about her that frightens them so?

A recent column by Gene Lyons is a case in point. Most of his article came from MSNBC, which has the same credibility in evaluating a conservative as Rush Limbaugh has in giving a reasoned, rational evaluation of Obama.

At one point, Lyons says Palin couldn't run a Wal-Mart. He needs to read more. According to Time Magazine, as mayor of Wasilla, Palin doubled the size of the town and eliminated the property tax. She was appointed to the Alaska Pipeline Commission, a plum job that pays $112,500 a year. When she realized the commission wasn't working for the welfare of the people, she complained to her superior and was told, "That's the oil business in Alaska" and that Alaska law forbids members to make commission work public. She resigned and brought the issue to the public. The commission was reformed, and several member were prosecuted and convicted under ethics laws. She enjoyed popularity above 80 percent because as they say, "Alaska Works."

(What people also need to realize is that in the US we have ONLY 5 states that are in the black -financially sound- and thanks to Gov Palin AK is one of them. She put aside $6.6 billion in rainy-day funds and $1 billion for education and still cut the state budget. Bankrupt states like FL, CA, NY and IL spent like drunken sailors, when times where good and thought they had no need to save, but not Governor Palin & AK.)

When the chief executive of the oil pipeline consortium visited Alaska, she refused to see him until he renegotiated the contract. ExxonMobil, BP and Conoco were sitting on huge reserves of natural gas, and she told them to start developing the field or she would put the land up for bids. They balked, but have agreed to a 17% increase. She has used oil revenue to develop roads, bridges, technology infrastructure and schools. (This is also part of the funds each AK citizen receives annually. She also renegotiated with the Feds lowering oil taxes, keeping an extra $.640 billion, for AK. She always plays hardball, usually wins and many governors, like Schwarzenegger & Crist, have gotten a lot of heat for allowing the Feds & oil companies to call the shots, unlike Gov Palin.)

Apparently, Lyons doesn't read the news, but Palin was exonerated (not just acquitted) from the charges against her related to her ex-brother-in-law.

Her resignation may very well be her political death knell, but she still has a important voice.

The Huffington Post: Sarah Palin's Influence On The National Stage Is Crystal Clear

Oddly enough, Andy Ostray of The Huffington Post, had nothing but almost great things to say about Governor Palin. Are we starting to see even the left seeing the power of Palin? Simply posting notes on her Facebook page and she is changing national policy and putting the White House on the defense. Imprerssive to say the least, according to Andy Ostroy.

As the debate over Obama's health-care overhaul intensifies, one thing has become quite clear: it took former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin just three weeks into 'retirement' to prove that when it comes to major domestic policy, she is going to be right smack in the middle of it all. And surprisingly, all it took for her to fully inject herself squarely into the health-care debate was one simple, albeit politically explosive comment last week:

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."

But the truly astonishing part is that The Wasilla Wonder has actually framed the entire debate with her disingenuous reference designed to scare the crap out of old folks and those who care for them. "Death panel" has now become the official phrase and rallying cry of all the right-wing loons salivating at the opportunity to not just derail Obama's attempt at reform, but more importantly to undermine his nascent administration's entire agenda. Conservatives smell Obama's blood, and the health-scare mobs are just the front lines in the much more complicated war to take him down.

'You betchya, America, we're not gonna let that Muslim terrorist in the White House allow those youths-in-Asia to kill our grannies, gosh darn it!'

But I have to give Palin credit. For someone with the knowledge and intellectual curiosity of an Alaskan moose, she's sure demonstrating some deft political skills. What the health-care debate has proven is that in 'retirement' she's not crawling under any rocks just yet. For some strange reason, and I cannot for the life of me understand it, there actually are a whole bunch of people who hang onto every word this inarticulate, vacuous, empty-Versace-suited fraud has to say. That we as a nation are engaged in a bitter partisan battle over such an important subject as health care, with Palin's words leading the charge on the right, is absolutely mind-boggling. Maybe Republicans have been right along: perhaps she is the future of their party.
