I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I’m working on my health and creating a career that generates money. My weight loss program is coming along slowly, but surely — over 42 pounds lost so far. But I don’t like writing about the process — it feels better to keep that private. I’ll report on results when I’m ready.
However, I’m writing this post to draw the attention of my dear gentle readers to a video by Tammy Bruce about Gov. Sarah Palin as a policy wonk and a blog post by DaTechGuy pointing out Gov. Palin’s leadership on policy issues and predicting that that is why she will run for president and win in 2012. Certainly Gov. Palin is the only prospective candidate in the field with both a mastery of energy policy, the most vital expertise for restoring health to our economy, and executive branch experience.
So here is a sample of DaTechGuy’s examples of Gov. Palin’s leadership:
Do you remember when Sarah Palin said this about drilling:
For years, states rich with an abundance of oil and natural gas have been begging Washington, DC politicians for the right to develop their own natural resources on federal lands and off shore. Such development would mean good paying jobs here in the United States (with health benefits) and the resulting royalties and taxes would provide money for federal coffers that would potentially off-set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the federal debt and deficits, or even help fund a trillion dollar health care plan if one were so inclined to support such a plan.
So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That’s all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.
Sounds pretty topical, When did Palin say this? AUGUST OF 2009 when gas was still in the low $2 per gallon. Bloggers covered it. The MSM didn’t. Where would gas prices and the economy be today if the MSM reported this and the president listened to her 2 years ago?
Note to DaTechGuy: Obama intends to destroy the U.S. economy by skyrocketing energy prices — that’s a feature, not a bug. So, of course he’s not listening to anyone who would interfere with that.
Here’s Tammy Bruce explaining why Gov. Palin is a policy wonk — I saw this the first moment I read about Gov. Palin’s experience and it’s always puzzled me why others don’t see it immediately, too:
By the way, in this video Tammy talks about Gov. Palin predicting that quantitative easing by the Fed would lead to inflation. I spent Easter with Dad in the emergency room — he was finally diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and is feeling better now — and had several hours with G. Edward Griffin’s The Creature from Jekyll Island, which was given to me by FreedomWorks at BlogCon in September 2010. It describes the creation and operation of the Federal Reserve System, which is all about bilking taxpayers through inflation. I expect it’s a book that Gov. Palin has read, but even if she hasn’t, reading it has enabled me to see that Gov. Palin clearly has a grasp of the Fed’s modus operandi and therefore can predict accurately the consequences of its actions.
