In the first note she stresses our need to win in Afghanistan, and in the latest note she discusses our need for energy independence. While the administration is taking its eye off the ball with healthcare and the Olympics, Palin brings our focus back to issues that are really pressing right now.
She also calls out Obama for campaigning on Afghanistan as a candidate and now seemingly abandoning it after He Won. I was wondering if anyone voted for him because they agreed with his views on Afghanistan. I bet those people are crushed right now. It also seems like the Left is having a hard time admitting he is a fraud and slimey just like every other corrupt politician out there. He's no different. Just say anything to get elected.
Here are excerpts from her two notes:
Further Proof of the Need for Energy Independence
Today at 7:39pm
The British newspaper The Independent reported today that Gulf oil producers were negotiating with Russia, China, Japan and France to replace the dollar in pricing oil with a basket of currencies. According to the Wall Street Journal, Arab oil officials have denied the story, but even the possibility of such a talk weakens the dollar and renews fears about its continued viability as an international reserve currency. In fact, today a United Nations official called for a new global reserve currency to replace the dollar and end our “privilege” to run up huge deficits. We can see the effect of this in the price of gold, which hit a record high today in response to fears about the weakened dollar.
We Must Win in Afghanistan
Today at 4:57pm
For two years as a candidate, Senator Obama called for more resources for the war in Afghanistan and warned about the consequences of failure. As President, he announced a comprehensive new counterinsurgency strategy and handpicked the right general to execute it. Now General McChrystal is asking for additional troops to implement the strategy announced by President Obama in March. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers in harm's way in Afghanistan right now. We owe it to all those brave Americans serving in uniform to give them the tools they need to complete their mission.
