Whitney Pitcher: Who Is the Real Sarah Palin?

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 7, 2012

Whitney Pitcher discusses Governor Palin’s leadership record as a reformer, fiscal conservative, and energy expert in her article at Big Government:

If you listen to the media, the left, and the GOP establishment, you’ll hear that Sarah Palin is “unqualified.” Even those who grudgingly admit that she helped the McCain ticket in 2008 by energizing the base will still dismiss her gently by saying that she was not “prepared.” Translation: “Sure, sure, she drew a crowd. She’s Caribou Barbie. The rubes like her, but that doesn’t mean she’s competent.”

Is she “unqualified” or “unprepared”? What is her actual record? The media demanded and got unprecedented access to the emails she wrote as governor. No other national or state politician has been more open and transparent. We can know this woman if we just take the time to investigate.

I did, and I discovered a record of relentless reform and fiscal leadership that goes beyond “drill, baby, drill” and is more complex than selling an expensive state jet.

Today everyone likes to call himself a deficit hawk, but it’s easy to be a budget cutter when you’re broke. Palin was a serious deficit hawk at a time when her state was flush with a massive oil revenue surplus. It takes discipline and strong conservative principles to rein in spending at a time like that. Palin cut spending by nearly 10% during her tenure while reforming government, attracting more energy companies to do business in her state and adding jobs.

In the days of credit downgrades in states across the country and for the country as a whole, Alaska has seen its credit upgraded twice since 2006 due to Palin’s reform of the state employee pensions and Alaska’s oil valuation tax.

While the nominees for both political parties have implemented health care mandates on some level, Palin proposed repealing bureaucratic mandates for health care facility development and enacted patient-centered, market-driven health care reforms.

Though she is unabashedly a woman of faith, Palin’s message and governing style garnered her approval ratings as high as 93% in the second least religious state in the country. This was no uneducated, geographically-challenged “Bible Spice.”

By any objective standard, this woman was and is more than qualified to be vice president or president. Her record is arguably better than anyone on the national scene today. The facts bear this out.

I’ve assembled just a brief and partial glimpse of Palin’s record. Much more could be written. Whole films have been made about it (see Steve Bannon’s “The Undefeated”). I’ve chosen to focus primarily on fiscal and energy issues because that’s what Palin focused on.

After reading the following you should ask yourself a few questions:

Why haven’t we heard about all of this before? Why didn’t Steve Schmidt highlight this record during the 2008 campaign? And why is the GOP establishment attacking this woman instead of praising and emulating her leadership?

  1. WHY THEY HATE H ER? SHE HAS POLITICAL SKILLS THAT MANY REPUBLICAN PART LACK, SHE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE PEOPLE, HER MESSAGE IS OF COMMON SENSE AND NOT B.S. AND LIES
    SHE LOVES AMERICA AND IS A CHRISTIAN ,THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE CONSIDERED CHRISTIANS
    NOT MUSLIMS THE ELITES RESENT HOW POPULAR SHE IS, SARAH IS A FORCE AND THEY ARE SCARED OF HER
    AND THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE.
