What If Sarah Palin Had Been President
Through out his Presidency, Obama has been haunted by the pesky posts from Sarah Palin. Most recently, Palin and Obama, via the mouth of Robert Gibbs, have been exchanging words for the Presidents mismanagement of the biggest crisis of his Presidency. Gibbs said that Palin needed more information about how oil drilling is done. Considering one of Palin's biggest resume builders is her work with the oil industry, I think that comment just highlights how insane Obama and those around him are. "Plug the damn hole" is the leadership we get. Perhaps Obama should take his boot off the throat of half the nation and stick it in the hole.
With the Palin/Obama exchange, that got me thinking about what would things have been like had we elected Palin as President (assuming she was the nominee). Well, When it comes to the oil crisis, I think Palin's experience would have been perfect for just such a situation. Isn't that ironic that the thing needed the most was the most scorned during the campaign. I think that instead of spending 18 months blaming Bush, we would have heard somebody try to speak encouragement to the nation as Reagan did in the 80's. We would not have taken over the banks or the auto-industry. We would not have socialized medicine. We would not have passed stimulus and all of its children. She would not have taken her focus off of the economy to focus on socialist programs that the nation 2 to 1 are not in favor of. She would not have divulged our national strength to the Russians and Chinese. She would not approach every nation from China to Liberia from a position of weakness. She wouldn't have abandoned our Eastern European Allies. She would not have snubbed the Israeli Prime Minister. She would not have allowed Caldoron to put down our nation and stand in agreement. She would not attack a state of the Union more harshly than Iran. She would have only bowed to the only one worthy of bowing to, our Lord. In summary, she would not have acted stupidly.
