    I tried to check this on Snopes but didn't come up. Not sure if it had been posted before but is interesting read. I believe she is a great leader regardless of others opinion. Obama doesn't come close to her values and ability I believe and she wouldn't need 32 czars to tell her what to do and how to rip Americans off by creating jobs just for crooked friends. Jackie B.



    By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman. As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.

    The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.


    1- Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits. The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.



    2- Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.



    3- The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.



    4- Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.



    5- For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started... This summer, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.



    6- President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.



    By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let

    her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Should known better.



    You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.



    So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.



    I rest my case.



    Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

    Retards, you read it here first. She is...

    Unread, inadequate and cheap.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the remaining wing-nut conservatives on TS.com.

    Sarah in 2012, "and stuff like that."

    hussein is dismantling the very reasons this country exists, and all we hear from small minded, ignorant people like upchuck80, is jealousy of Sarah. I hope she continues to prosper, and bother him for decades. It's sure working now,,LMAO.

    Starting with an insult lends a strong negative component to your meaningless post, Mr. Upchuck.

    Not being able to debunk a single statement of the topic must be terrifying to your brightly flaming liberal bias.

    Get back in the placenta jar.

    I received a copy of her book "Going Rogue" as a Christmas present. Have not read it yet,but just flipping through...looking @ the pics. brought something to my attention that goes a LONNNGGG way to explain why the beltway professional politocos, West coast Hollyweird types, and East coast elitists have such a hard time with Sarah Palin....
    **
    There's a pic. of her standing over a Caribou she just shot. The label under the pic syas: "It may not look like a trophy, but it's good eating and I'm thankful to help fill our freezer with some of the cleanest organic protein on God's green earth."
    **
    Those people I mentioned above live in their own warped reality that is so far removed from what is REAL in this world...that it's no wonder they are incapable of understanding Sarah Palin's appeal to the rest of us.

    Don Steele,I just finished reading it and now have much more respect for her and a better understanding of who or what she is. It is absolutely amazing what she has had to endure from the liberals and left wing media. It speaks volumes of how low our Country's moral's have sunk to. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. Best wishes for a healthy Happy New Year, Bob

    Jealousy and fear breed hatred. Think like a woman for a minute. Sarah is young, gorgeous, accomplished and loved. She's been a GOVERNOR !!!!! On the other hand you have Whoopie, Joy Behar, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters, Feinsten, Hillary, Katy, Pelosi, Janet Napolitano. Need I say more????

    Many of the Washington elite don't like due to her having no IOU's to them.

    chuckie is still a coward and a thief...

    This guy has some hold on a certain demographic. Do they fear his Chicago politics? The dems don't seem to fear the ballot box. They certainly are not listening to us. My Senator, Specter's phones or e-mails don't even answer. His followers are so devoted they won't even discuss current situations. I have liberal friends who just "don't want to hear it". His Czars are like Czar Ivan the Terrible's Black Horsemen who had free rein to terrorize the entire country. He eventually disbanded them, but the damage to Russia had already been done. Sound familiar?

    Just amazing that a person with high morals and an honest belief that doing what is right and best for the country can polarize some so badly. I will ask you Chuck what is it that you dislike about Sarah Palin? And i want facts not regurgitated bs. Tell me some things that would alter my postion that she actually has qualifications to lead this country. I would love to debate anyone that believes Sarah Palin is not way more qualified to lead this country than the hack that is there now. I don't give a rats ass if she is pretty or a woman or that Hussein is black. Lets just compare her qualifications to his. And also his belief system vs hers. While we are at it lets compare her accompolishments to his. Her fiscal responsibility to his lack of. Her Alaska style politics vs his Chicago style thuggery. Her honesty about who she is vs his complete lie about who he is or was. And lets compare the people that surround her vs Hussein's. Now come on Chucky give us all the facts not your typical liberal puke.

    Jack, VERY good post. It's always good to hear from somebody who's been there, and who better to talk about a governor than one of the governed? I admire the lady, and as was said earlier, I'd go hunting with her in a minute. I'd damn sure vote for her, too. And did.

    I THINK IT IS REMARKABLE THAT THE PRESS CAN FIND EVERY WOMAN WITH WHOM TIGER
    HAS HAD AN AFFAIR IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WITH PHOTOS, TEXT MESSAGES,
    RECORDED PHONE CALLS, ETC. THEY KNOW NOT ONLY THE CAUSE OF THE FAMILY
    FIGHT, BUT THEY EVEN KNOW IT WAS A WEDGE FROM HIS GOLF BAG THAT SHE USED TO
    BREAK OUT THE WINDOWS IN THE ESCALADE. NOT ONLY THAT, THEY KNOW WHICH
    WEDGE!!!



    THIS IS THE SAME PRESS THAT CANNOT LOCATE OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE ... OR
    FIND OUT WHAT PASSPORT HE TRAVELED TO PAKISTAN WITH...OR FIND ANY OF HIS
    PAPERS OR FUNDING SOURCES WHILE IN COLLEGE.



    TRULY REMARKABLE.
