In Praise of Sarah Palin - Oh Yes She Can!

With President Sarah Palin, the US will get a sane and moral foreign policy, totally different from Obama's wacky prostration to the King of Saudi. Palin will work to reverse the damage done by Obama's Medical Piracy Act -- a big, big job. And best of all, Palin gives a wonderful example of what women (and men) can achieve. Sarah Palin is a normal person with a normal life who decided to fix what's rotten in Anchorage -- and now Washington, D.C.

Why does the left hate Sarah Palin with such screaming rage?

I do think she's a bit bonkers to be honest. I'm not saying Obama is great but I think Palin would be a very trigger happy and dangerous Commander in Chief.

Not only the left hate her. Obama's victory would not have been so clear if she had not been running for vice-president.
Even today, some of Obama's close advisers are rejoicing that she may present herself as the Republican candidate, as this will ensure a second term for Obama.
Applying even a small part of her beliefs would be a world disaster.

I felt the same as you two in the beginning.

But being a big reader, I have slowly changed my mind. The more I read about her, the more I admire her.

2012 isn't far off, so we'll just have to wait and see.

I'm sure the Republicans can easily find a better candidate, who is also a friend of Israel but with an IQ.

Palin is much more astute that Obama, and has principles which are wholly American i.e. she believes in the Constitution, unlike the Marxist Obama.

The left hate her because, whilst pretending to be "of the people" as they live in Hampstead, Islington etc, they are utter snobs.

Maybe President Palin and Foreign Minister Lieberman could play Scrabble with each other? I would buy a ticket for that. Better still, get rich selling tickets....

I can see why John McCain wanted a conservative running mate in the 2008 presidential election, given that he is not himself on his party's most conservative wing. My question is why he chose this particular conservative, namely Sarah Palin.

Colin Powell well explained why Sarah Palin is not suited to the US presidency here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7BYR_UjsoI.

This, meanwhile, is an interesting analysis of why many American Jews do not support Sarah Palin: http://www.commentarymagazine.com/viewarticle.cfm/why-jews-hate-palin-15..., including, it has to be said, many unfair misconceptions that some people have about her.

Myself, when it comes to American politics, I'm still a Clinton Democrat. She's way too far to the right on a range of social issues for me to ever wish her well politically.

Please, amber, don't indulge in the Tea-party fantasies: Obama is about as marxist as Sarkozy. Remember that Israel also has a social security system, just as France. And both systems are deemed very efficient, considering the money spent on them by the government, by the inhabitants themselves. US citizens spends globally more money for a less efficient system. Of course, the rich get the best service, and the poor can die in an understaffed hospital.
I do not say it is impossible to do better than France or Israel but the system works.

Palin has to write on her hand to remember the subject she has to talk about, doesn't know anything about foreign policy and favours creationism. That is too much and no one wants that at the White House. Not even the Republicans!

This was an interesting post from Melanie Phillips about Sarah Palin. Mel does tend to get her facts straight.

Kahina, agree completely.

Jose, if you think the French system is working well, i think you need to see which economy is growing - the US or France?

France can't afford its luxuries.

Actually, it's France. USA has now a higher percentage of unemployed.
And please don't put that on the social security system. Israel has basically the same system as France. Both countries fared well in the financial crisis, Israel fared somewhat better because they don't have France's huge debt.

And please understand that Palin is the best argument for Obama. She will never make it to the Republican primaries unless they really want to loose.

Jose, check this out:

Please amber, check the real economy figures of France, not EU, and don't try to find economic information in a journalist's blog!
This is pure crap, doesn't even state one figure, focuses on French strikes and gives only a GDP chart not even mentioning France proper.

You have to understand (and that is valid for all, of course) that the source of information is important and internet is a big garbage can where you rarely find a diamond. So you have to learn how to find them. See how yankeeuxb, zair and telegramsam always find garbage and do exactly the contrary.

With the November mid-term elections showing a massive swing to the right and the Republicans taking the majority in the House of Representatives, this means that without Republican support, Obama, a Democrat is a lame duck President and will not be able to push through any of his wishy-washy democrat policies.
This swing is indictaive of the ground swell of US opinion shifting to the right, site the rise of the Tea Party and the massive ground swell of support for Sarah Palin.
The US public are fed up with the broken promises of the left of centre and want a strong right of centre republican leadership that will do "right" for the domestic economy and will re-assert it's foreign policy to make the US the dominant world power.

Sarah Palin on Israel's "settlements"
"I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand".

Sarah Palin on Iran
" we would all do well to include Israel’s security in our prayers as we encourage our government to do all it can to ensure there is never a nuclear Iran able to threaten our interests or our allies".

I think we can deduce that Sarah Palin is indeed a strong friend of Israel.

Jose, thanks for the lesson in research.

Historically, France has had much higher unemployment than the US, and smaller growth. France has always believed in big centralised government, and has hardly been a model of efficiency, whilst the US has followed a smaller government spending ethos, with lower taxes. Taxes have now increased in the US, and bigger government has been the order of the day for the last few years. Surprise surprise, unemployment has risen sharply, as small businesses are taxed to the hilt. 25% of French work for the state, with jobs for life and retirement at 62 (that was a fight!) which the state will have to pay for. The 35 hour week was a catastrophe. This is not a recipe for succes, and Frnce will have even bigger economic problems in the future. The US will as well, unless it returns to its roots and kicks Obama and big government spending out in 2012.

Well the fact is that it is the contrary today...
Obviously, you were not able to take the lesson in research for which you thanked me.

Palin is the best friend of Obama's second term. So let's hope the Republican have a candidate with an IQ.

Jose - because the US is trying to ape Europe. Once the US returns to low government spending, lower taxes on small businesses (the largest employer), then things will pick up.

The French model of high government spending to the point of bankruptcy (and this will only get worse when all those retiring want their 75% pensions, with the low birth rate resulting in a shrinking workforce to provide it).

There is no history of entrepreneurship in France (despite the origin of the word). Polls have shown most people would like to work for the state. No get up and go. France is many wonderful things - but the model of a great economy?

Ridiculous! The US got into that crisis alone, and part of Europe that had followed the US collapsed aftewards. You are inverting the facts.

Palin is a great friend of Israel.

Yes Jose - the Us did get into it all by herself - by aping the European model of big government.

Well, that is really not a fact, but a not-knowledgeable opinion. The crisis was a financial one, caused by the inevitable credit crunch. Nothing of the sort was happening in Europe that the US could have copied. European countries that collapsed were those which bought bonds relying on American credit.
Globally, the European economies resisted much better than the American one, of course.
I repeat: the financial crisis is an American product and the best proof is that they are at the epicenter of it. It started during the Clinton administration and rushed to the wall during the Bush administration, which did not see it coming.
Obama is, for once, just a victim of his predecessors.

Jose, I think you are confusing two issues. The crisis started with the sub-prime mortagage problems of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae - bothe leant on by the Clinton administration to lend to those who could not afford the repayments. But even under Bush, government spending grew, and now it is completely out of control - European style - because of Obama's healthcare bill which, at a stroke, added a sixth onto the entire US economy, whilst 2 trillion dollars of a so-called stimuus package produced zero results.

Governments don't sort these problems out - people do. And Sarah Palin, unlike Obama, understands this.

Please, amber, it is ludicrous to state that Bush mimicked European-style government. Unfortunately, you seem to know nothing of American politics.

Bush has of course been an example of American-style economy and some of the European countries that try ti imitate them got into the crisis in much the same way.

Not only I am not confusing any issue, but I showed that you projected the origin of the crisis on Europeans while it is the American system that created it.

Obam healthcare is nothing: French and Israeli systems of healthcare generates much less spendings than US old system.
Every study of government spendings for Western countries showed that health was better in these countries than in USA for (much) less money. Of course, those who have a lot of money get very good care. Those who have less (the middle class) don't spend so much and in consequence are in worse health than their European counterparts.

Jose, I am American - so I do know something about US politics.

You put your fingeron the problem - socialized healthcare in Israel or France is not comparable to the US. i don't think 2 trillion in a failed stimulus package, or adding a sixth to the US economy in one fell swoop, is nothing.

Ultimately, it's how you see the role of government. For my part, I think governments generally screw things up, and I have much more faith in people's ability to sort things out - if left alone by government. The French philosophy is the opposite - if you have a problem, turn to the government.

I'm sorry but you sound like a Tea-Party member and they are not a good judge of how to run a country.

Healthcare is not really a thing of the government as the civil servants don't change with governments. What I can tell you is that healthcare or not, American health spendings are higher from those in France and in Israel, for an average worse result: the very rich will have a better healthcare, the others a worse one.
French or Israeli people don't have to turn to the government: the healthcare does not depend on the government. The government on the contrary try to limit the spendings, such as not paying for inefficient medicines or pseudo-medicines, making sure patients don't go to the doctor every day for nothing, doing the same thing with less civil servants, etc. It's the governement interest to do it and the money they don't spend there can be used for other things.
