“PIPELINEGATE” and the White House

Posted by nypalinpower on March 11, 2010

by NYPalinPower –

Why is the President of the United States suddenly getting publicly involved in Alaska politics?  It seems curious and timely that all of the sudden Obama decides to make a complete 180 degree turnaround and is so very interested in becoming directly involved in the same Alaska Pipeline project that Sarah Palin for years has been working on and had finally secured funding for.

President Obama has just announced he is getting the White House to oversee the Alaska Pipeline project and is sending an envoy to Alaska to work with and oversee the project with the state legislators.  So now, we have the White House controlling state business.  And that’s really funny because Governor Sarah Palin had already secured this project along with then Lt. Governor Sean Parnell.  Do you think the President wants to take over the project and take the credit away from Sarah Palin?  Perhaps he has an interest in hurting Sarah Palin by destroying her project altogether and preventing it from going through?  Maybe he is so angry at her that he is using the White House to get back at her? Does he want to hurt Sean Parnell’s chances of re-election?  Could the President be abusing his executive power? Hmm?  I don’t know, but if he is, then this is a scandal, I’ll just call it “Pipelinegate”.

There are two reasons for this, I think.

Alaska Governor Sean Parnell, who took over Sarah Palin’s job last year is up for re-election.  He is way ahead in all the polls to get the Republican nomination.  The general election will be held in November.  Parnell has been working very hard on the Alaska Pipeline project along with Sarah Palin when she was governor, and the project has been on track to receive the funding it needed from Alaskan legislators (at least up until this week when it was announced the President is taking over).

But why would the President use his executive power to hurt Sarah Palin?  Could she be a possible threat to his re-election campaign in 2012?  Could it be that he is a little bit angry that she is running around the country going to bat for conservatives to unseat legislators in Washington who are not doing their job, mostly Democrats? Sarah is a patriot and she is doing it for her country so it can get back on the right track. If conservatives (mostly Republicans) win the elections, then the Republicans might have enough seats in the House and Senate to take over a majority and gain control of Congress.  If this happens, the President will be in a weaker position than he is today. Do you think he is angry about that? Or maybe he is angry because Sarah Palin saw some major flaws in his healthcare legislation which he desperately wants to pass, and she gave the public the heads up?

Gosh!  Is it really worth it Mr. President to scandalize yourself and abuse your White House privileges because of your anger? This could hurt your chances in 2012 for re-election.  Why do you take the chance? Have you already decided you will not run for a second term?

This is only the beginning, folks.  I think “Pipelinegate” will become huge and the President will be caught in an even bigger scandal than Nixon was a part of.  He is using his power of the executive office to hurt the other side politically.  He is manipulating Alaska’s state business for revenge instead of doing his job as Commander-in-Chief leading our country into prosperity and peace at a time in which our country needs a leader.

Sarah Palin’s Successor, Sean Parnell, Cruising To Win In Alaska Gubernatorial Race: Leads By 60 Points

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 8, 2010

As any good CEO will tell you, choosing and grooming your replacement is one of the most important jobs you have. Now obviously, Sarah Palin didn’t pick Sean Parnell to be her Lt Governor, the Alaskan people did, and they made an excellent choice.

Sarah’s contribution was setting up a solid, efficient, capable administration that was able to achieve great things for Alaska. By any measure, she was an enormous success. But, as any great leader will tell you, you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with.

As Governor, Sarah Palin created an incredibly capable leadership group. A group that was able to help her fulfill all of her campaign promises to the Alaskan people, including the 50 year dream of a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the lower 48, a project that is right on track.

One of the reasons Sarah was able to make the decision to step down as Governor was the fact she had such a dynamic leader as Sean Parnell waiting in the wings. Parnell shared Sarah’s solid vision for Alaska, and vowed to carry on with that vision.

It comes as no surprise then that Governor Parnell, despite having two challengers, is looking at a landslide victory in the Alaska GOP primary.

Parnell would defeat Ralph Samuels 69%-9% and Bill Walker by 69%-4% in the 2010 Republican primary election, according to a new poll conducted by Basswood Research. The poll also found that 79% of Alaskans likely to vote in the upcoming primary approve of the job Sean Parnell is doing as governor, and 71% of voters view Parnell favorably.

This poll was conducted for the Parnell campaign, and is consistent with other recently released independent polls. A recent Dittman Research poll shows Sean Parnell’s job approval at 81% among all voters, according to a news story published February 25 by the Alaska Dispatch. And, a January poll by Hays Research Group showed Parnell’s approval rating at 73% [].

According to the new poll:

* Sean Parnell would easily win the Republican primary if it were held today, capturing 69% of the vote, with 13% split between Ralph Samuels and Bill Walker, and 18% still undecided.

* Parnell would defeat Ralph Samuels by more than 60% and Bill Walker by fully 65%.

* 79.4% of likely voters in the upcoming Republican contest approve of the job Parnell is doing as governor.

* 71.2% of likely voters in the 2010 Republican Party primary view Parnell favorably.

At present, the race between Parnell, Ralph Samuels, and Bill Walker for the Republican nomination is, for all practical purposes, no contest, with Parnell holding a massive 60-point lead,” said pollster Jon Lerner in a memo to the Parnell Campaign. “Parnell maintains large leads among every voter segment, including a 69%-7% lead among moderate Republicans and Independents, and a 71%-10% lead among conservative Republicans and Independents. There is quite simply no primary voter segment that favors Parnell’s opponents.”

Further details on the poll can be found here:

I’m grateful for the strong support of so many Alaskans,” said Sean Parnell. “It is a great honor to serve as governor, and with their support I will continue to work hard to build our economy, develop our resources, and improve the quality of life for Alaska’s families.”

This survey of public opinion in Alaska was conducted by Basswood Research on February 27-28, 2010, among 500 likely Republican primary election voters. All interviews were conducted by professional interviewers by telephone. Interview selection was at random from among lists of registered voters with a history of voting in Alaska Republican primary elections. The sample was constructed to statistically correlate with actual voter distributions in the state. The accuracy of this statewide survey is within +/-4.38% at a 95% confidence interval.

While Walker was never a serious consideration, Ralph Samuels was attempting to mount a strong campaign. Or at least was until Stacy Drake reminded everyone about some questionable dealings and problems with his resume. You can read about those here and here.

It should be noted Governor Parnell, using common sense conservative leadership has maintained the same kind of high approval ratings that Sarah Palin enjoyed during her tenure as Governor.

Sarah Palin, now a national leader, can certainly look back with pride and take great satisfaction knowing that the team she put together is performing so well for the Alaskan people. Her job as Alaska’s CEO fulfilled.

Meanwhile, Governor Parnell is proving himself to be a strong decisive leader and a real star in his own right, a leader who is keeping Alaska strong. Not sure if it’s the clean air or the pure water, but there is something about Alaska that is producing outstanding conservative leaders.

We could certainly use that sort of leadership in Washington!
