WSJ: Never Underestimate Sarah Palin

Sunday, February 28, 2010 3 Responses
Why is it that women are often other women's worst enemies? The attack by Dorothy Rabinowitz on Sarah Palin ("What Sarah Palin Doesn't Know," op-ed, Feb. 18) is but one recent example. Sarah Palin's common-sense opposition to out-of-control government spending and a mounting national debt is a prime reason she has been so successful. She speaks about these issues in a language all can understand.
I was raised during the Great Depression and know what we are in for if we continue down the path President Obama has so eloquently prepared for us. The catchy line in Ms. Palin's tea party speech "How's that hopey-changey thing working out for ya?" may have displeased Ms. Rabinowitz, but it certainly resonated with many Americans.
As for Gov. Palin running for high office at some time in the future, she had more executive experience under her belt at the time of the last election than did Mr. Obama. This fact escaped many media types who could only laud Mr. Obama's eloquence while ignoring what lay below the rhetoric.
It will be difficult for any intelligent, beautiful woman to achieve high office in this country until we get over the idea that feminine beauty, by nature, indicates a vacuous bimbo, while an inexperienced but charming man who speaks eloquently is, by definition, ready to lead this great country.
Muriel Ross, Albuquerque, N.M.
The vast heartland of America ("the real America") is seething with rage against the political and intellectual elites in Washington and New York. Ms. Rabinowitz seems to believe that Sarah Palin is a "fringe" player who lacks the intelligence to be president. Exactly the same was said of Ronald Reagan. The true outliers of American politics are the elitists who can see no further west than Cambridge or Alexandria.
Jeffrey Folks, Knoxville, Tenn.
Ms. Rabinowitz is offended by the term "the real America," but all of our citizens, if asked, would say they are real Americans, even the so-called elite.
What Ms. Rabinowitz doesn't get is that the elite are well represented in Washington. But those people "out there in the real world with steel-toed boots and hard hats" feel they are no longer represented. Sarah Palin offers a relief from the frustration we all feel about Washington politics.
Frank C. Petrine, Denver


Sarah Palin is on the rise and it is because she is making all the right decisions. She  has provided solutions to the problems Washington and Obama are creating.  She upsets Obama supporters because Obama is failing miserable and Palin is calling him on it.  Obama is so incredibly incompetent, clearly not intelligent and his supporters can see this. Obama supporters are venting their frustration on the only politician that keeps pointing out he is a disaster.  So when you see or hear Sarah Palin being denigrated it is always from an Obama spporter.

Sarah Palin On Leno Vs Romney On Letterman Tuesday March 2nd

Saturday, February 27, 2010 1 Response
Leno is back as host of NBC's late-night show at 11:35 p.m. EST Monday, March 1. Jay Leno made news when he announced that Sarah Palin will be among his high-profile guests when he returns to The Tonight Show next week. Now David Letterman's lineup for next week pits Mitt Romney against Sarah Palin on Tuesday night -- bad news for Letterman and Romney.  As we have seen in the past year every single event or guest appearance by Sarah Palin brings in a huge audience where as Romney cannot scrap together 200 people .  Each time she appears on any show on Fox News the rating increase by 1 to 3 million viewers opposed to Mitt Romney having no effect what so ever.  
Leno’s first two weeks Lineup will be Governor Sarah Palin, Adam Lambert, Robin Thicke, Ben Harper, Ryan Bingham, Lifehouse, Jamie Foxx, Olympic champions Lindsey Vonn, Shaun White and Apolo Anton Ohno. NBC says Brett Favre has been added as a guest for the March 4 show.
Jay Leno easily wins Tuesday March, 2nd.

GOP (Sarah Palin) Response To Obama’s Health Care Summit Hannity 9pm

Thursday, February 25, 2010 0 Responses
With a government-growing proposal this bad, it’s no wonder the President wants bipartisan cover for it in an election year. Thursday’s health care summit is already being revealed as little more than a photo-op. The Obama administration still denies the existence of the House Republicans’ health care plan that offers alternative solutions to health care challenges – even though the White House website links right to it
The President’s proposal doesn’t include pro-free market ideas like allowing people to buy insurance across state lines, giving individual buyers the same tax benefits as those who get insurance through their employers, or instituting real medical liability reform. Despite the “kumbaya” rhetoric, Democrats are making plans to ram this bill through the Senate using a partisan procedural maneuver that will bypass the normal bipartisan debate process.
In the meantime, the White House will continue to ignore Republican reform ideas and cast the GOP as the party of no. That’s a hard sell considering that Democrats still hold the majority in the House and Senate. The only real “gridlock” preventing Democrats from doing what they want is the very real threat of America's voice being heard at the ballot box.
The public is clearly opposed to the Democrats’ health care bills. Americans want to scrap these big-government plans and start over with common-sense, incremental reform. Some on the left have urged Democrats to vote for Obamacare because it’s a foot in the door for universal health care. They understand what’s at stake; so should the rest of us.
The President can perfume this proposal however he wants, but it still doesn’t pass the smell test. Washington should listen to Americans now, or Washington will hear us in November.

Sarah Palin On Obama's Health Care: Putting Perfume On A Pig

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 1 Response
The President has wrestled control of the health care debate away from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid by finally introducing his own plan. Unfortunately, the White House’s proposal includes everything we found untenable about the old Senate bill – only this one is even more expensive! This is what you might call putting “perfume on a pig.”
What’s in this “new” proposal? It has the unpopular (and arguably unconstitutional) individual mandate that forces people and employers to purchase health insurance – only this time with much harsher fines on employers who choose not to go along with another expensive government mandate. It has provisions that will make employers think twice before expanding their workforce. It has cuts to Medicare Advantage, a popular program which allows seniors to pay a little more money out of pocket for better coverage. And, of course, it still has sweetheart deals – only this time they’ve been extended even more.
We don’t know what the final long-term cost of this will be because the Congressional Budget Office hasn’t had a chance to calculate costs. We do know that the White House recognizes that its proposal will cost tens of billions more over the next ten years than the already-expensive $2.5 trillion Senate bill. The President promised last July that he won’t sign a health care bill if it “adds even one dime to our deficit over the next decade.” But he’s now proposing a health care bill with uncertain fiscal repercussions that could lead to endless deficits.
The rising cost of care has driven the entire health care reform debate. So how does the President’s proposal address this central issue? Price controls. That’s right: Washington, D.C. wants to give a panel of bureaucrats the power to cap insurance premiums and prices. As Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute notes, “artificially limiting premium growth allows the government to curtail spending while leaving the dirty work of withholding medical care to private insurers.” This leads to rationing. Any economist worth his salt – including the White House’s own Larry Summers – will tell you that price controls lead to all sorts of negative unintended consequences. It’s another step towards government controlled health care and away from the real solution: free market, patient-centered reform.

The Real Sarah Palin

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 1 Response
Skip Coryell, of Human Events, wrote an interesting and very telling piece on Sarah Palin.  I have met Sarah Palin several times and Skips experience is quite accurate.  I even sat next to her, at a McCain/Palin fundraising dinner, and she truly is the perfect example of a citizen politician with amazing abilities. After the fundraiser Sarah Palin called to thank me and it was not her assistant or secretary that placed the call but her directly.  Unlike most politicians, I feel she does not make every decision on wether or not it will help her career but driven by what she feels is best or is the right thing to do.  For example, her decision to campaign for John McCain is Sarah Palin at her best and it is called loyalty.  Another example is resigning as governor.  Nearly all politicians would not even think of resigning because it would not be in the best interest of their all important careers.  That is not Sarah Palin but the selfless act of resigning is.  Liberals or Progressive cannot even begin to understand this because they believe people are inherently bad or evil and expect their leaders to be dishonest.  The Real Sarah Palin:     
I got a letter in the mail last week. It was from Sarah Palin. I wasn’t expecting it.  After all, I don’t even know her.  But, nonetheless, there it was, lying in my mailbox, a letter from Wasilla, Alaska, the office of Sarah Palin. I’ve gotten mail from lots of famous politicians in my time: George W. Bush, John McCain, George H.W. Bush, and even from Ronald Reagan himself. But all of them had two things in common:  1) They had no idea who I was, and, 2) They were asking me for money.
So I opened this letter expecting a plea for much-needed funds to advance the TEA Party agenda or to help stop the Obama socialist juggernaut from sweeping across the land like a swarm of locusts, consuming everything moral and good in its path. But Sarah from Wasilla surprised me. It was a personal letter. It said:

“Dear Skip, Thank you so much for the copies of your books and for your generosity. Todd and I were happy to receive your encouraging message and we appreciate your thoughtfulness for taking the time to write. God bless you. Thank you again and all the best to you and your family. Sincerely, Sarah Palin”
The signature was in blue ink and very impressive. I could tell she was an “A” student in school. My wife is like that too.  But there it was, a personal letter from the most popular/notorious woman in America. It was short, but still, it was personal.
As you know, I’m the Founder of the Second Amendment March, and I had written Sarah asking her to speak at our event on April 19th, 2010 in Washington D.C. The letter was hand-delivered to her house by our Alaska State Coordinator along with signed copies of all my books. (That’s right. I was sucking up to her. I figured it couldn’t hurt.)
I’m a die-hard conservative, and when I think of Sarah Palin, I shiver with both excitement and dread. You see, I read Sarah’s book Going Rogue and was very impressed. Here was a real person, a real American, with real God-fearing American values and she was in politics to boot. It excites me because I want to believe she is the real thing. It terrifies me because few people ever go to DC without being corrupted. And America just can’t afford to have another hero go bad.  […]
Every two weeks I meet with my Second Amendment March State Coordinators via teleconference and we plan and talk about the April 19th event. A few weeks ago we were talking about the possibility of Sarah speaking at our march and I asked Len Betts, our Alaska Coordinator, if he’d seen her. The conversation went something like this:
Skip: “Len, have you seen Sarah Palin lately?”
Len: “Sure, saw her at the grocery store just yesterday.”
Skip: “What! You’re kidding me! Sarah Palin buys her own groceries!”
Len:  “Of course. Sarah hasn’t changed. She’s still just like the rest of us. She’s not all snooty and she still talks to people just like she always did.” […]
I believe that Sarah Palin is real. But the million-dollar question is: can she stay that way? For now, I’m filled with faith and hope. But then, I also believe in duty and honor and the strong serving the weak. I believe in Camelot.Sarah from Wasilla -- don’t let me down.
Editors Note: Please visit secondamendmentmarch.com to get information for the national march and your local march. The national march is April 19th. - Thanks!

Newsweek: This Time, Sarah Palin’s Got A Point

Monday, February 22, 2010 0 Responses
From the din of the 24-hour news cycle, a rule has taken shape: if it's a bare-knuckle, low-down tussle you're after, the best bet is to pick on Sarah Palin. Palin has made an art of umbrage, and as her political future hinges on maintaining maximum visibility, no slight, real or perceived, is going to escape the Barracuda's wrath. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane knew this when he approved a joke in a recent episode in which Chris dates a girl with Down syndrome named Ellen (played by Andrea Fay Friedman.) Over dinner, Chris asks Ellen what her parents do for a living. "My dad is an accountant, and my mom is the former governor of Alaska," says Ellen, an obvious reference to the fact that Palin has a son with Down syndrome. At that moment, a frantic call probably came in on the Palin Phone. There was defamation afoot, and it must be stopped at all costs. […]
The problem with the conversation surrounding the Family Guy episode is that it presupposes that people fall into one of two categories: those who think the joke was funny because they weren't offended by it, and those who think the joke wasn't funny because they were. I didn't find the joke funny, not because it was insensitive to people with Down syndrome or to Sarah Palin, but because it just wasn't funny. Like, as a joke. Plenty of criticisms have been lobbed at Family Guy, from the quality of the animation, to its reliance on interchangeable, inorganic cutaway gags (see South Park’s two-part take down, “Cartoon Wars”) but the Palin joke is a perfect example of the show's major shortcoming. The MacFarlane sensibility puts a premium on being offensive, and that's fine when the jokes are soundly constructed, but too often Family Guy jokes aren't clever or well written, they're just shocking. To some people (me included, at times) the shock value is enough to inspire some uncomfortable tittering, but jokes like that don't stand up to scrutiny. If you take two seconds to think about them, you realize it wasn't that funny to begin with, and it certainly doesn't work on a subsequent viewing, when you're expecting it. [...]
Simply restating a fact in a different context, like the fact that Palin has a child with Down syndrome, isn't funny, even if you dislike Palin or disagree with her politics. There's a lot to like about Family Guy; the arcane pop-culture references kill me, as does anything that features a talking baby. But if MacFarlane is going to climb into Palin's sandbox, he's going to have to equip himself with much sharper material.

Sarah Palin Is One Tough Mother

Thursday, February 18, 2010 1 Response
Sarah Palin is dismissed by some on both the Left and the Right as a lightweight. She's supposedly wet behind the ears because she's rarely traveled abroad or served as a privileged United States senator, which consists mostly of ordering lackeys around. Of course, Palin is way too pretty (and a non-Ivy-Leaguer besides) to have an I.Q. anywhere near Obama's.
It's astonishing what these critics continually ignore: that Palin is a mom -- not once, but five times over. How can this inconvenient truth be so easily dismissed? Five children -- count them -- including a special-needs boy with Down Syndrome. […]
Looking at Palin's slender frame, it's hard to imagine her actually doing this not once, not twice, but five times. She was wiping spills and her kids' mouths at the same time as she was cleaning up Alaska. Of course, being a frontier woman, Palin can do it all.
Palin can do practically anything because this is how her parents raised her. […]
Obama, in contrast, has spent his 48 years kvetching. A day rarely goes by during which Obama doesn't complain about George Bush or having to lower himself to talk to Republicans.
Every hardship is blamed on outside forces. Obama's parents abandoned him because of racism; he was benched from a high school sport due to injustice; his friends, like Henry Louis Gates, Jr., are treated unfairly.
And because of all this alleged persecution, liberals view Obama as the tough guy. In many people's messed up minds, the angry and aggrieved are viewed as the formidable ones. 
Meanwhile, Palin just glides by like a majestic bird in flight. She's called a c--t, Trailer Trash Barbie, and a moron, but she just keeps going, like the fiercest prizefighter. Palin takes the punches, gets up, and keeps on rocking -- always with her effervescent smile.
There is nothing lightweight about her, our Alaskan Amazon, who once gave a speech in Dallas while in the throes of labor with Trig. Did you hear that? I'm talking labor, which I understand is like having one of those prizefighters throwing punches from deep inside. Are you listening, the insufferable Robert Gibbs?
Fool: Does it really matter if, at the time, she had some notes scribbled on her palm? 
Can you imagine the carryings-on, the mass hysteria, if people like Obama or Gibbs or Maureen Dowd had to actually birth a human being? Would they even survive to tell the tale?  […]
Can anyone in his right mind say the same thing about Obama?

Sarah Palin To Obama: Stimulus Bill Anniversary Proves Not-So-Stimulating

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 0 Responses
One year ago today, President Obama signed a nearly trillion dollar stimulus package and handed our children the bill. What did we get for that massive price tag? Many promises, but the promises have proven false. On this stimulus anniversary, Washington needs to hear our message that Americans expect, and deserve, better. 
Americans were promised the stimulus would keep unemployment under 8%. It’s now well over that. We were promised it would be targeted and pork-free. It’s been loaded with pork, corporate giveaways, union bosses’ goodies, and other manners of waste. We were promised there would be no fraud, but our government now tells us it can’t even verify the eligibility of people applying for the $325 billion worth of stimulus tax provisions. We were promised there would be strict oversight, but billions of dollars apparently were allotted to congressional districts that don’t even exist. We were promised it would provide “green jobs” for Americans, but 80% of the $2 billion they spent on alternative energy went to purchase wind turbines built in China! We were promised it would help state governments weather the recession, but states receiving the stimulus bait will be in worse fiscal shape now because local governments will be on the hook for new unfunded mandates and continuation of government programs they couldn’t afford in the first place – as many of us governors warned state legislatures. 
One year later, we see plainly that the stimulus was not a well-thought out plan. It hasn’t revived our economy; instead the debt-ridden package will prove to be a drag on our economy. It hasn’t put us on the path to a better future; instead it’s unfairly mortgaged our children’s future and stolen opportunities from them. It hasn’t strengthened us; instead it endangers our freedom and security by making us even more beholden to foreign lenders. The legacy of the stimulus isn’t jobs or economic growth – it’s more dangerous debt.
But there is hope! And this hope lies in draining the swamp in D.C. and sending Commonsense Conservatives to Washington who understand the need for fiscal restraint. Those who are willing to rein in spending, respect Constitutional limits, and repeal the stimulus should get our support, and those who have been part of the problem should be replaced.
In this election year, we’ll see many daring Davids take on entrenched Goliaths. Just one of these many brave souls is a northern Wisconsin patriot named Sean Duffy. He’s running in Wisconsin’s 7th congressional district against a liberal Goliath who’s been in Congress over 40 years now and has the dubious distinction of being the author of the stimulus bill. To commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the stimulus, Sean Duffy is holding a fundraising “money bomb” for his campaign so he can replace the career politician who drafted this government-bloating behemoth. 
If you’re frustrated about the waste in the stimulus bill, please support a solid fiscal conservative who will work to repeal it. Please visit Sean Duffy’s website and help him help us correct the mistakes of this past year. 
On this first anniversary of the stimulus, let’s send a message to the big-spenders in Washington by helping Sean Duffy unseat the author of the stimulus. Let’s put government back on our side and get to work revitalizing America!

Bristol Palin: Pathetic Cartoon Mocking My Brother Are Heartless Jerks

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 2 Responses
People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, “when is enough, enough?”:
“When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks. - Bristol Palin”

(Video) Sarah Palin, Harry Connick Jr & Michael Steele At The Daytona 500

Sunday, February 14, 2010 1 Response
The Orlando Sentinal reported on Sarah Palin at the  Daytona International Speedway this Sunday. Palin was swarmed as she entered the room during the driver’s meeting, and sat right up front next to Harry Connick Jr. She also chatted with Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele and anybody who wanted to get an autograph or photo. After the  meeting ended, her handlers tried to shuttled her out of the room quickly, but Palin couldn’t help herself and wanted to talk with anybody who wanted to come and say hi.
She finally was led out of the building with an entourage of 12, including a police officer, security officer, Daytona officials and spokespeople. We were able to get in two questions:
Q: How do you feel about being here?
A: This is awesome. It’s an All-Americana event. A good, patriotic, wonderful event that’s bringing a whole lot of people together. I think it’s good for our country.
Q: This is a good base for you, being in Florida, a swing state, right?
A: Haven’t thought a darn thing about the politics of this. I’m thinking about this good, active, speed-loving event that a lot of Alaskans, too, are really into. We’ve got our snow-machine races up there, and this is of course on a much greater scale same type of sport though same type of breath taking speed loving All-American event that we like to see up north.

UK Times: Sarah Palin & Scott Brown Set The US Frothing

Saturday, February 13, 2010 2 Responses
She is a former beauty queen; he is a one-time nude model. She has written a bestselling memoir; he is negotiating a contract to write one. Both drive pick-up trucks and base their appeal on folksy common sense.
The former Miss Wasilla and America’s sexiest man, aka Sarah Palin and Scott Brown, may sound like contestants in a celebrity game show. But to the bemusement of many Americans, the unlikely duo are the most visible Republicans in the country and may become rivals to Barack Obama in the next presidential election. […]
The former Miss Wasilla and America’s sexiest man, aka Sarah Palin and Scott Brown, may sound like contestants in a celebrity game show. But to the bemusement of many Americans, the unlikely duo are the most visible Republicans in the country and may become rivals to Barack Obama in the next presidential election.
Two years ago most Americans had heard of neither. Palin was plucked from the icy wastes of Alaska, where she was governor, to be Senator John McCain’s running mate. Brown found himself catapulted to national celebrity a month ago after he unexpectedly won the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, which had been in Democrat hands for 50 years. […]
It is not just Democrats who are watching with dismay. Brown is also a rather large thorn in the side of Palin, whose presidential ambitions appear to be burgeoning.
Despite being widely blamed for McCain’s disastrous showing against Obama, Palin has transformed herself into the poster girl of the right. The first evidence of her popularity came with her book tour in November when she drew enormous crowds at small towns across America.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in all my years of reporting,” said Andrea Mitchell, who covered the tour for MSNBC. “All these people queuing at 4am or 5am in freezing mornings across the Midwest. She’s sold more than 2m books. That doesn’t happen easily.”
Last weekend, as the keynote speaker at the first national Tea Party convention of conservative activists in Nashville, Palin lampooned Obama’s 2008 election slogans. “How’s that hopey-changey stuff workin’ out for ya?” she asked the adoring audience, who had each paid $549 (£350) for a ticket. Her declaration that “America is ready for another revolution” provoked a standing ovation. As she left the stage the crowd chanted “Run, Sarah, run!”
The following day she made her debut on the Sunday morning television chat show circuit to announce she was considering a presidential bid. “It would be absurd to not consider what it is that I can potentially do to help our country,” she told Fox News. “I won’t close the door that perhaps could be open for me in the future.”
What seemed like madness a few months ago has suddenly become a distinct possibility, according to commentators. David Broder, columnist for The Washington Post, wrote: “The snows that obliterated Washington in the past week interfered with many scheduled meetings, but they did not prevent the delivery of one important political message: take Sarah Palin seriously.”
“I don’t think you can overstate the extent to which she is the dominant figure in the Republican party today, for 2010 and 2012,” agreed Mark Halperin in Time magazine.
Palin attracted derision from many for consulting notes written on her hand while speaking, a system quickly named the “hillbilly Palm Pilot”.
Palin, who has been signed up as a commentator by Fox News, seems to revel in the fact that liberal Americans are horrified by her lack of knowledge, highlighted by her suggestion that her foreign policy credentials were enhanced by Alaska’s proximity to Russia.
“I doubt there is another public figure in the country who gives liberals a bigger case of the hives,” said Rick Perry, Republican governor of Texas. “At the very mention of her name the liberals, the progressives, the media elites — they literally foam at the mouth.”
Palin’s biggest challenge may be Brown, particularly now that he, too, is planning a book. His life story appears to qualify him to achieve Palinesque fame and fortune.
Palin is the frontiers woman who hunts moose, married her childhood sweetheart and brings up five children, including one with Down’s syndrome. Brown is a child of divorced parents, whose mother was on welfare and who says he got “knocked around pretty good” trying to rescue her from violent stepfathers. […]
The fact that Palin and Brown are seen as presidential material indicates a widespread disillusion with establishment politicians and also the Republicans’ lack of a heavyweight frontrunner. “It’s unusual for the Republican race to be so open,” said Faucheux. “Usually there would be at least one candidate seen as the heir apparent and the party doesn’t have that this time.” […]
Republicans, asked who they favoured as a candidate, put Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, on top with 14%, followed by Palin at 11% and McCain at 7%. Brown got only 4%, although this was ahead of the party stalwarts Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich.
Some have started talking about a Palin-Brown slate as a “dream ticket”. For others it is the ultimate nightmare.

Sarah Palin: Honoring Alaska’s Olympians

  • In April of 2009, during a discussion about offshore exploration in San Francisco, Salazar said that President Obama directed him to “to make sure that we have an open and transparent government” and that “these are not decisions that are going to be made behind closed doors.” Salazar went on to say that President Obama wanted to make sure that DOI was “maximizing the opportunity for the public to give us guidance on what it is that they want to do.”
  • Yet, more than four months after the comment period ended, the Department of the Interior has failed to make any public announcement about the results, even though sources have told American Solutions for months the comments show a 2-1 advantage in support of offshore drilling.
  • It took American Solutions almost four months and the power of the Freedom of Information Act to finally uncover indirect confirmation that, out of over 530,000 comments submitted, pro-drilling comments outnumbered anti-drilling comments by a 2-1 margin.
  • In an email dated October 27, 2009, Liz Birnbaum, director of the Minerals Management Service, informs other Interior officials that a preliminary tabulation of the results of the comment period had not yet gone to Secretary Salazar, adding “[s]o the Secretary can honestly say in response to any questions that he’s [SIC] has not yet seen the analysis of the comments – staff is still working on it. I did, however, confirm to him the 2-1 split that these guys [at American Solutions] are emphasizing.”
  • When a public employee is on record condoning purposeful deception of the American people, the taxpayer should no longer have to fund his or her job. Secretary Salazar should immediately fire Liz Birnbaum for purposefully deceiving him, and in turn, the American people. It’s not possible for the Secretary to honor pledges of openness, honestly, and transparency in government if his staff is going to deliberately undermine such pledges.
  • Public opinion polls already measure near 70% support for offshore drilling, so the results from a public comment period that reflect the same public sentiment should not be surprising. But after all this talk of wanting the public’s input, Secretary Salazar and his team must find it a real stumbling block to have to explain all their anti-energy development actions in light of the comment period results to which they previously attached such great importance.
As Haley notes in his article, it’s astonishing that the Obama administration is dragging its feet on offshore drilling at a time when we’re so desperate for economic recovery and jobs. It’s no surprise that an overwhelming majority of Americans support offshore drilling: it will provide millions of good jobs and billions in revenue, and it will make us more secure by reducing our dependence on foreign oil. 
Mr. President, we appreciate you asking for our input. We’ve provided it, so thank you for accepting it. With no time to waste, it’s time to listen to the American people – finally – and drill, baby, drill!
