Sarah Palin Resigns
Sarah Palin resigning as governor of Alaska! What a news flash on a holiday weekend! The big question is: why would she do so, and it’s difficult to speculate as to her reasons.
Sarah quoted General Douglas MacArthur, "We are not retreating, but advancing in another direction." Does she plan to run for president in 2012, or has she just had it with the vengeance directed at her and her family ever since she came on the national scene in late August as McCain’s running mate? Or does she plan to direct her full attention to fighting Obama in his efforts to sabotage America? Only time will tell.
One thing is for certain: no one individual has drawn the hatred of the liberals as Sarah Palin has. She is a strong woman who lives her values and will never be forgiven for not aborting her Down’s Syndrome son, Trig, and instead appreciating him as a blessing from God, as all children are.
Liberals recognize the power she has in her ability to connect with average Americans, and the huge crowds she draws terrify them. They, and their comrades in the mainstream media, just drip with intense loathing of the woman. Palin Derangement Syndrome is a disease that has infested nearly all on the Left. My own ultra-liberal mother seethes over with hatred when she discusses Palin; I can hear the contempt in her voice as she shares her disdain for a genuinely good and honorable woman.
Palin has been dealing with one bogus ethics complaint after another, ever since returning to Alaska after the November election. These below-the-belt actions by her political opponents have cost her family dearly, to the tune of about half a million dollars in legal fees, as well as costs to the state of Alaska. Liberals have absolutely no shame. Thug politics at work once again.
Obama may have strong oratory skills, but he is a phony, and more and more people are beginning to see that. Despite his Ivy League education and all his intellect, the man, like most liberals, lacks common sense in handling domestic and foreign policy. Palin, on the other hand, appeals to the masses because of her down-to-earth ability to relate to people and her strong charisma. Without her on the Republican ticket last year, McCain would have been royally clobbered, despite the claims that have been made that she hurt McCain.
Personally, I adore Sarah Palin; whether she is ready for the presidency in 2012 remains to be seen.
