***UPDATED with Sarah Palin’s Fox Business interview with Eric Bolling***

Sarah Palin came out swinging tonight, saying that Newt should stand behind his words and not apologize no matter what the media says about it. She even noted that he wouldn’t have apologized if the media hadn’t gotten in a huff about what he said.

Also, she indicated that she is still seriously considering a run in 2012, but she is still looking at the field. What I liked about her comments was that she noted that her running for President would be about fighting the left and fighting for the country, not being in the limelight for the punditry class.

Great interview!

    whenever she says things like, “we need to look at the other candidates to see if they have done this and that and this and that and this and that…” she’s really saying, “you all need to look at ME and see that i HAVE done all those things.” (and she doesn’t need to see if the other candidates have done those things. they haven’t- at least, not enough for her to be satsfied enough to sit out.)

      She’s probably the most Libertarian-leaning conservative I’ve seen which is why I place her 3rd in my consideration of the primaries.  She’s also what I consider to be the greatest contender who could potentially upset what’s already in there as well.

         Exactly.  I wish more Libertarians and Liberals would see that.

           That being said though…more independents and possibly even liberals are more likely to vote for a Ron Paul or a Gary Johnson in the general elections than for a Sarah Palin.

         I’m still talking about Palin.  I paid attention to her philosophy and have read some of her books I borrowed from my mom.  That’s why I refer to her as an L-leaning Conservative than just a flat-out conservative.

    Sure if she wants to be President, she can go for it, Shes free to do so…As much as I adore her, ever since the tucson attack how the left went all vitriol and calling out for her murder have really worried me for her safety.  I cant keep consuming my time and energy trying to defend her everytime libs finds a new low way of soulfully raping her, idk, we’ll see what happens.

      We both like Allen West (if I’ve ciphered your posts on him correctly).

      …too bad you don’t share (or seem to have any clue about) his propensity for wisdom in dealing with an ENEMY.

      HINT:  goople Sun Tzu… and read up on a few tactics of SUCCESSFUL WARFARE.

      Sarah Palin is smokin’ the enemy… with a smile.  PATIENCE, CONFIDENCE, WISDOM, COURAGE… and a PLAN.

      She’s exhibiting each, with Class, Grace, and beautifully maddening TIMING.

      You have ranted and raved about this good woman with the tenacity of an NBC ‘news’ reporter… and the class of a Jersey Shores ‘star’.

        “Sarah Palin is smokin’ the enemy… with a smile. PATIENCE, CONFIDENCE, WISDOM, COURAGE… and a PLAN.” What plan? Is she hoping everyone else will drop out of the race? What enemy? Do you think Obama’s worried about her? Courage? She quit as governor of Alaska when the going got tough. Does she think it will be easier when she runs for POTUS?

        She came out with the “I’m praying about it” line. She’s had 3 years to pray about it. Are you that gullible? Get ready for a Huckleberry-like “My heart says GO, but the spirit says NO” speech.

          But that young man is as HONEST as I’ve ever known.
          He is outstanding in his research of points and issues (don’t agree with his conclusions that often, but I damn-sure know he’s climbed the mountain for his prized thought).
          He is HONORABLE in his combat for the high ground of Ideals, Truth (as best he can see it, at the moment) and Place at the table of discussion.

          Governor Palin is playing it close to her bodice here.  More to the point, she’s playing it smart.  She’s going to declare her candidacy when SHE thinks the time is right.  She’s not going to allow herself to be goaded, chided, dared, panicked, bullied or badgered into throwing her parka hood into the ring one day sooner than she thinks is necessary.

          And what’s the hurry, anyway?  We’re not going to have a nominee this month.  We’re not going to have one next month.  We’re not going to have one six months from now.  The first primaries and caucuses are still eight months away.  And the nomination won’t be official until August of 2012; not August 2011, August of 2012.  Waiting until July, August or September isn’t going to hurt Governor Palin in the least.  There’s plenty of time.

          Trust Governor Palin on this, folks.  The woman knows what she’s doing.

                  A fare question and here’s are fare answer: find raising. Romney just scooped 10 million. That’s 10 million that won’t be going to Palin. Obama is already fund raising. He’s planning a 1 billion dollar campaign. That’s 1 billion!! Does Palin think she can wait another couple of months and still raise a billion??????

                  BTW: the big GOP donors are flocking to Romney.

                  How much longer is that going to be the case, now that Romney has refused to repudiate his failed Massachusetts medical insurance law?

                  And that’s establishment GOP money.  Governor Palin’s support comes fro the conservative grass roots, which comprises a bigger chunk of the primary electorate.  Once she’s in, she’ll rake in funds that will swamp whatever Romney pulls in.

                  Look at what just happened to Newt Gingrich. One angry word against Paul Ryan, and even with an apology, the potential donors are deserting him.

                  Romney and Gingrich are both wounded ducks on the way down.

                • Marshall

                  Just my 2 cents, and not saying I back the Governor.  But whether it’s right or now, the SarahPAC crowd has already telegraphed that their serious belief is that the money will take care of itself if she were to announce.  The word is that they’re loaded.  And she’s not going to land the big donors, she’s going to land an army of small donors, and then ride the wave of free attention that she gets.  After all, her record as Governor was to take on the big boys, so the Romney donor/bundler crowd was going to ignore her anyway.  So if she announces, the idea is that it would be right before the deadline to take the wind out of the sails of any upstarts who are able to break through, like Pawlenty or Daniels.  If the SarahPAC folks are right about the money, then she’s smart for waiting.  But it does seem like a gamble.  If nothing else, and I’m not a devoted fan of her, one must admit that she’s interesting…and unconventional.

                  But that was in Alaska, now we are talking about the entire country.  You could be correct in what you have heard-but I am not sure that more people want what she or any Repbulican has to say more than what the government has to offer.  I am not saying I agree with the government but so many are dependent on it and they may be too frightened to “hear” what any Republican has to say-no matter how harmful the Republicans try to show the direction of the current country.

          No ,she didn’t quit as governor of Alaska “when the going got tough”.

          Sarah Palin resigned to get the countless attacks (frivolous complaints) against her out of the governor’s office, and the money they cost the state, away from the burden of taxpayers.
          Gov. Palin’s entire administration was paralyzed by those frivolous complaints.

          The Democrat operatives (and their Republican lackeys!!) responsible, were strangling the people’s business with their endless political manipulation of the system.

          That entire campaign of BS lawsuits was meant to do nothing but hamstring the governor’s office and bankrupt Sarah Palin.
          The complaints were without merit and took away from the job she wanted to do for Alaskans.
          She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

          In an article Gov. Palin said:
          “I said, ‘Enough. Political adversaries and their political friends in the media will not destroy my State, my administration, nor my family. Enough.’ I knew if I didn’t play their game any longer, they could not win. I would not retreat, I would instead reload, and I would fight for what is right from a different plane.”

          Sarah Palin had also fufilled all the campaign promises she made, i.e., ethics reform, budget cutting, earmark cutting, getting the natural gas pipeline off high center through an open, transparent, and competitive process!!!

          She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people ( saving tax money and time) and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

          Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts!
          For the past two years Sarah Palin has worked tirelessly to fight Obama’s policies and elect conservatives; she was #1 in the fight! (nov.2010 election)

          She’s spoken out on all the issues, both foreign and domestic, and has been proven right on many of her statements.

          Gov. Palin had to step down for the better of her state and it was the honorable thing to do.

          If you don’t understand SP’s reasons for leaving the governor’s office, rewind the interview and listen for the words “legal deadline”. She knew what the left were doing with their ethics complaints; she’s too smart to let them pick the field and the weapons. If you still don’t get it, do some research on your own and educate yourself.

                  Do you even understand why she resigned? In just under 8 months those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million. That entire campaign of frivolous  lawsuits was meant to do nothing but hamstring the governor’s office and bankrupt Gov.Palin. She didn’t resign just for herself,
                  because things got tough. She did it try to bring some semblance of fair governance back to the state, save the state the money .

              I don’t care.

              I just think it’s a weak argument when Palin has been fighting Obama and the Democrats harder than any other Republican the last couple of years.

              If Palin had resigned and moved to a remote cabin in Alaska to hide out and then all of a sudden  appeared to run for president then it would be a strong argument.

              Neither the left or the right has treated Palin with kid gloves since she hit the national scene. I think she is used to it and prepared for what they will throw at her next.

              Name another Republican that has been attacked more than Palin since ’08?

              • http://www.planettron.com NickDeringer

                Jan Brewer – attacked by the White House and the DOJ.
                Scott Walker – attacked by the unions and left including a few death threats thrown in for fun.

                  Sarah Palin resigned to get the countless frivolous complaints against her out of the governor’s office, and the money they cost the state, away from the burden of taxpayers.

                  The ethics complaint investigations had cost Alaskans $2+ million dollars in 6 months.  At that rate, these systematic complaints would have cost Alaskans $8 million by the end of her term.

                  She also saw that her family was in debt for $500,000 for 6 months of ethics charges. Again, at that rate, her family would have been in debt $2 million by the end of her term.

                  By the way, she had fulfilled all the campaign promises she made, i.e., ethics reform, budget cutting, earmark cutting, getting the natural gas pipeline off high center through an open, transparent, and competitive process!!

                  For the past two years Sarah Palin has worked tirelessly to fight Obam’s policies and elect conservatives.
                  She and the Tea Party were the catalysts for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses.
                  Sarah Palin was #1 in the fight . ((  speeches, interviews,supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

                  Intellectually imploded and mentally deranged Nick Deringer.
                  You seem to be eternally incapable of grasping what is easily understood and obvious for the people of wisdom and good will; The reason behind gov. Palin’s resignation from the office. 
                  This is despite the 124357856 explanations that have been given so far.
                  Allow me to use an intellectual model to energise your last two remaining grey cells and help you to settle once for all over that matter.
                  Lets assume that we have a brilliant military commander with winning strategy who has achieved a string of victories over the powerful enemy.
                  One day that commander is recalled back to the Pentagon and learns that from now on the new rules of engagemant are being astablished that shall require from his soldiers to fight the enemy with one hand tied behind their backs.
                  It is obvious that the commander resigns in a digust and in protest not wanting to be responsible for the inevitable death of his soldiers and defeats that would be an unavoidable result of those new rules.
                  A bit later that general emerges the operation field as a commander of independent from pentagon military units with a new and even more brilliant strategy that results in new set of brilliant victories.
                  Would you destribe that general as a quitter?
                  That is exactly what Sarah Palin has done. She has displayed and is displaying the strategic brillance of a military commander.
                  For that very reason, she has delivered more victories for the conservative movement over the American communo-fascist than the entire GOP apparatus combined.
                  If you are still unable to understand that, it is because your brain has decayed to such a degree that your spinal cord (if you have any) has taken over you mental functions.

          Swallow that lie. Turn off your brain Nick. All the evidence is out there why Palin resigned from office and Alaska is doing just fine. Palin left behind a working financially sound State Governor’s office. She left Alaska with the budget in the black, one of only 2 states currently in the black. She built a strong professional staff because she mentored the people she hired – something no politician I can think of does anymore.
          Notice that she moved the target away from the Governor’s office and that the lawsuits stopped almost immediately. Ever thought about WHY? Think. Research.

          They went after Palin because she refused to be silent.
          Imagine if people went after us for speaking our mind here?
          If you get hung up on that one thing without digging deeper to really assess the situation then you end up making the kind of statements above. Don’t do that.

        “She bought into the meme that she should quiet down her rhetoric.” Interesting theory.

        I guess that’s why she came out with both guns blazing in Wisconsin on April 15th, ripping the union thug leaders who were threatening Governor Walker.

        I guess that’s why she’s been critical of Obonzo on everything from energy policy to Middle East policy.

        I guess that’s why she tore Nasty Pelousy apart for all the ObonzoCare waivers her district got.

        Again, interesting theory. Unfortunately, the observable facts don’t support it.

    The more I think about it, the more I want Sarah to run and the more I think the perfect ticket would be Sarah President with Alan West VP. 

    Sarah is the perfect focal point for conservatives. I am thinking of how the unfounded attacks on her would motivate the conservative electorate to action. 

    Sarah, if you are reading out there PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT!  THIS COUNTRY NEEDS YOU.  HISTORY NEEDS YOU!

    And ask Allan West to join you.  I think his constituents would understand.

    I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE GAMES AND THE SLOW PATH TO HELL LIBERALS ARE TAKING US TO!  ITS TIME TO THROW DOWN!  ITS TIME TO GO TO WAR!

    • Steprock

      I like Palin a lot, but I’d rather wait until the debates heat up to make up my mind. I like West more all the time, but my gut fear is that what he says is true: that he needs to wait and gain experience before trying to seek high office. He respects the office a darn sight more than the current occupant, I’m afraid.

      Still, I think that if Gov. Palin made good headway and called for Mr. West to join her, he’d do so.

      • Jackyl

        That is why I think West would be a great VP.  Gives him time to get his feet wet.  Then we have him T’d up and experienced for a Presidential run down thr road!  Best of both world.

        I am dissapointed with the current line-up of RINOs, unknowns, and unelectables.  Conservatives need another Reagan.  Palin-West is pretty darn close. 

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dave-Kawasaki/1798183858 Dave Kawasaki

          West has indicated that, if he is to be honored with higher office, he’d like to be Speaker of the House.

          • Jackyl

            As long as the man is anywhere in government it makes me happy!  I would like to see him become President some day although I understand how he would want to first get a little experience in a somewhat easier position.  

            Being President is not a role one should take lightly – it is the ultimate lightning rod for criticism. 

            That is why I really want Sarah to run.  She has already run the gauntlet
            and she’s bruised and bloodied, but still fight’n!   

            Most of her problems were the result of her being green on a national stage, being a tough woman conservative, and I think more than any other factor, the result of McCain holding her back.  He and his crew were like a weight chained to her ankle.  You could see during the campaign that she wanted to come out swinging, but McCain would have none of that.

    I know this may seem petty but I work in an extremely liberal enviroment and one of the many things I like about Palin IS the extreme, illogical, sputtering hatred my coworkers spew whenever her name is mentioned. It. Is. Astounding. You all remember the vitriol the left had for President Bush (and still does), that’s going to be like a love affair compared to what we hear if Palin becomes President. It’s going to be a HOOT!! 

    • Steprock

      You’re right about that. I had a chat with a coworker who was criticizing me over a political view, and I had to point out that she always said “F***ing Bush” when she said his name.

      She was totally unaware that she even did so. At least she stopped doing it.

        Stossel actually made that very same point.  Leave voting to wiser minds one might say.  That’s not to say that you or I are smarter.  It’s just that we actually bother to know what’s going on around us instead of being stuck on Jersey Shore and American Idol.

      I was worried about the same issue.  Then I started thinking, do I really think Romney would stand a better chance of winning this race with the media so viciously leftist/communist today?  I mean, the guy is alright, but he is no Sarah Palin.  

      He and the other RINO’s will fight just like McCain – tepid, boring, constantly acting as if nothing unusual is afoot!  They will lose just like McCain.  I do not know – if all we have as a campaign strategy is “Go with the RINO to capture the centrist vote!”, haven’t we really already lost the war? 

      Think about it, Reagan won on his charisma.  Charisma and a positive economic outlook for the future are the platform issues that resonate the most.  It is up to conservatives to get involved.  We need a reason to get involved.  Sarah is a reason – Romney is a slower train to the same location as Zero is headed!

  • Tyler

    Not about limelighting?  She’s been busy with other things lately…but up till now…she’s practically been doing nothing BUT limelighting and training herself in Fox’s safety net to deal with a media which is going to be much tougher on her…which in my opinion will fail miserably because as Odin pointed out…those people are done with her and won’t even listen to a word she says.

    The independents aren’t going to see her as being her truly Libertarian-Leaning Conservative self, but more so as just a moose-shooting Republican monster.

    Yall say that Paul wouldn’t have a chance…but when you look outside the old guard conservative box…Palin’s WAY LESS likely to win the votes of people OTHER THAN the Rs.

    Yes…this is yet another argument that I should’ve made about Cain earlier because it ALSO applies to HIM.

    She Also Quit as Gas & Oil Commissioner

    Why ?

    He is the Answer 

    Governor Murkowski offered a number of other jobs to Palin, and in February 2003, she accepted an appointment to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which oversees Alaska’s oil and gas fields for safety and efficiency.[69]
    Although she had little background in the area, she said she wanted to
    learn more about the oil industry, and was named chair of the commission
    and ethics supervisor.[1][69][71]
    By November 2003 she was filing non-public ethics complaints with the
    state attorney general and the governor against a fellow commission
    member, Randy Ruedrich, a former petroleum engineer and the current
    chair of the state Republican Party.[69]
    Palin had observed Ruedrich doing Party business on the state’s time,
    and leaking confidential information to oil industry insiders. He was
    forced to resign in November 2003.[69] Palin resigned in January 2004 and put her protests against Ruedrich’s “lack of ethics” into the public arena[20][69] by filing a public complaint against Ruedrich,[72] who was then fined $12,000. She also joined with Democratic legislator Eric Croft[73] in complaining that Gregg Renkes, a former Alaskan Attorney General,[74] had a financial conflict of interest in negotiating a coal exporting trade agreement.[75][76] Renkes also resigned his post.[20][

    MSM Fail: Week after ‘Atlantic’ Concern-Trolls Palin Supporters, Gallup Has Her in 2nd Place

    In an argument (usually a political debate), a concern troll is
    someone who is on one side of the discussion, but pretends to be a
    supporter of the other side with “concerns”. The idea behind this is
    that your opponents will take your arguments more seriously if they
    think you’re an ally. – Urban Dictionary

    Before she’s even announced her decision as to whether or not to run for president, according to a new Gallup poll,
    Governor Sarah Palin currently sits in second place among 11 announced
    and/or potential GOP candidates. Gee, how did that happen? After all,
    the MSM told me Palin was irrelevant (usually in 1200 word articles
    obsessing over one of her tweets or the tweets of one of her staffers).

    I turned this off last night watching Greta.  I thought Palin should know more then anyone what it’s like to be pounded mercilessly by the media.  Palin knew it was not the MSM who was doing this to Newt but the Right. 

    She seemed to be taking glee and refuge with the humiliation Newt was going threw. I like Palin but last night she make me sick.  Mike Gallagher on his radio show Wen asked “Does what’s happening to Newt really fit the crime?” And the answer is a resounding NO.

    When I saw the clip of the gay activist pouring a box of sprinkles on Newt and his wife I felt so sorry for him and Calista.  The Left has a game plan to destroy every candidate, it’s pathetic that it appears the Right has it’s Saul Alinsky plan to destroy it’s own.  Shame on you Sarah, you should know better.

On the other hand, there’re counter-LSM “voice of Righteous Indignation” which’re absence in 2008.

              The scenario now is completely different than that in 2008, where Sarah Palin essentially had both of her hands tied behind her back in the campaign, having a mole in the team:-) Mccain advisor Nicole Wallace, thrown her into the snake pit with Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson in her debut media interview. The LSM was given the time&space to defined and tainted her in conjunction with Journolist.

              Throughout the whole campaign, Mccain campaign advisor John Weaver prety much muzzed her and throwed her under the bus. Alas, many today are still been conditioned by the LSM propaganda.

              Today, Sarah Palin is not the same candidate as was in the 2008. She is an experienced,  seasoned, polished politician adroit in media handling and policy issues.  Recently BillO got a taste of a rude-surprise, with his usually demeanor when he tried to undermine Sarah Palin with his condescending attittude:-)  BOOM! taste my nightstick! The expression on BillO face was priceless.

    As soon as I had some morning coffee, wiped the sleepers from me eyes and noticed that there was another Palin post by Scoop, and that she was “seriously considering a run”, I knew Nickster the trickster would be all up in it stirring the pot with a dirty spoon and creating a concoction that nobody wanted to taste.

    Yesterday he was all about saying that Ron Paul was a racist. Good grief. Enough. Finding fault like there’s some reward for it. Denigrating good people who care about our country…those desirous of improving it and getting it back to what it should be. I didn’t like it one little bit. Men and women (Patriots) like Ron Paul and Sarah Palin should be saluted. I do that right now, because they deserve it and because I feel like it.

    Thanks RS, for posting the interview with Eric Boling.
    Even though it was shorter than the one with Hannity…it seemed like she wasn’t on her guard like she was with Hannity.

    I loved it that she got that little dig in about having to fend off attacks from “both sides of the isle”, in the Hannity piece.
    Heh.

        Seemed like a new Sarah Palin wordsmith.

           New?  Oh, this is rich.  That’s the same old Sarah Palin who’s been in the news for the past 2 1/2 years.

             Jaynie did Sarah P steal an old boyfriend away from you or what, you really have it in for this woman, so get over yourself. I’ll tell you whats happening, Sarah is waiting for all the deadbeats to drop off, then in her own good time will announce her plans to run. I have a slight feeling this will make you very very happy, just saying.

              I’m a huge Palin supporter, you jackass.  The comment about her being a “new wordsmith” was off base.  She has always been an articulate and passionate conservative voice.  Always.

        And yeah, with Hannity it seems like she’s talking with a varmit who’s going to bite her at any minute.

        Okay, I watched it again….what did I miss?

        I have to confess that last night I was listening and looking away at times, when this was on.

    I love the fact that Sarah called out David Gregory for HIS racism.  In fact, I’d love to see more of this from our side.  As well as refusing to let the media determine what the election will be about.       

  • Steprock

    Boy, about the only thing I disagree with SPalin in the Boling interview is her willingness to place faith in the GOP to get a candidate to compete with Obama. They’ve annoyed me so much I’ve considered going (I) instead of (R).

    And her comment on energy independence. Wow! Can you imagine if we could MAKE money on EXPORTING oil???? OMG! What a thought!

    • Anonymous

       I hope she goes on FBN more often.  I’d love to see her on a show dedicated to energy issues.

      • Steprock

        Sure, if there’s one thing she surely understands.

        I dunno, I’ve just never heard of a nation that has vast natural resources that they refuse to tap. I get excited about the idea of putting the USA in the driver’s seat on oil instead of us kowtowing to Arab nations with our hat in our hands.

           we have the resources – the USA. the LEFT WING nut libratards do NOT want use to use them.

          Right AFTER WW2 it was decided (FDR/Congress) to use up the REST of the worlds oil first IF they would SELL it to US CHEAP. They DID until the 70’s when the left took control of the DemocRAT party. This IS one of the MAIN reasons we are in the mess we are in now.

          the BIG LIE.
          by Steve McCann (Full article at americanthinker dot com)

          Yet the United States is sitting on the world’s largest untapped oil reserve.  A natural resource that would not only mitigate the over $400 Billion sent overseas to other countries but could create untold millions of jobs and put the country on a sound financial footing.

          The untapped reserves are estimated up to 2.3 Trillion barrels, nearly three times the reserves held by the OPEC countries and sufficient to meet 300 years of demand, at today’s levels — for auto, truck, aircraft, heating and industrial fuel, without importing a single barrel of oil. 

          The US could become the single largest exporter of oil and oil related products in the world, thus potentially eliminating its trade deficit, and increasing the national standard of living as well as making a massive dent in the national debt.  

          Here is a look at some of the largest untapped reserves:

          The Bakken Fields in North and South Dakota.  New drilling and oil recovery technology is making the capture of this oil feasible and some development is now underway.  It is estimated that there is at least 200 Billion barrels of oil in this region.  At a price of $100 per barrel the value of this find is $20 Trillion.

          The Outer Continental shelf.  It is estimated that around 90 billion barrels of oil sit beneath the ocean bed 50 to 100 miles off the shore of the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts.  The value: $9 Trillion.

          The Alaska National Wildlife Refuge.  About 10 billion barrels are locked up here with a current value of $1 Trillion.

          Tar Sands:  Around 75 Billion barrels of oil could come from these areas which are similar to the Canadian tar sand fields and which now produce about 2 million barrels per day.  The value:  $7.5 Trillion

          Oil Shale.  This is the most massive area of potential oil production in the world with an estimated 1.5 Trillion barrel potential.  The technology necessary to extract this oil is now in place and being operated on a pilot project basis.  The value of this resource:  $150 Trillion

          There also the very real potential that further finds will be discovered as technology continues to improve.

          In total the value of the potential oil reserves of the United States listed above exceeds $187 Trillion.  The current national debt is $14.2 Trillion or less than 8%.

          Despite the protestation of President Obama and the environmentalists the world and particularly the United States is not running out of oil.  Their foolish tilting at windmills and solar will never produce energy sufficient to operate a $14Trillion and hopefully growing economy.  It will be decades if not the rest of the 21st Century before any meaningful substitute for fossil fuels will be developed and additional time and investment will then be necessary to distribute the product.

          • Steprock

            THAT’S the kind of money I’m talking about! Heck, even if it’s way overestimated, it’s still an “unflippingbelievable” amazing resource.

            Closing thought: in regards to not tapping these reserves on the grounds of environmentalism, why is it OK to wreck some other part of the world’s environment in order to protect our own? It’s ridiculous on the face of it.

     “The lame stream media”  come on Sarah, we get it… you don’t accept criticism well and have difficulty defending yourself which is why you only resort to Fox news since your debacle w/ Katie Couric.

    If Palin would take it back to her bipartisan days of governing maybe the media wouldn’t be “lame”, you can’t be in the white house acting like a 5 year old with all the name calling.
