Let Loose the Barracuda!

September 29, 2008

from Perish the Thought:

James Lewis has it right:  To win this election, John McCain must let Sarah Palin unfurl the flag of REFORM in her debate vs Joe Biden on Friday night. 

Mr. Lewis is correct:

This crisis is not financial — it is politicalIt’s not a market failure. It’s a decades-long robbery by the Left, finally exposed for what it is.
 
The Democrats deserve the wrath of the voters this time.
 
To allow Barack Obama and the liberal democrat machine to continue steam-rolling taxpayers into funding their self-serving projects is a fatal disservice to the integrity of this nation, its credibility, its security and its future.
 
The taxpayers are now on the hook for a trillion dollars, if you add the failed 300 billion dollar rescue package from two weeks ago to the 700 billion dollar Paulson package  This is a trillion dollar scam, and all the politicians in Congress, the ACORN mafiathe people who played the market on unsecured mortgages, and the scam artists who were hired by Freddie and Fannie — they all knew it.  In case you haven’t been watching, that includes all of Barack Obama’s “home mortgage advisors” — Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson and Jamie Gorelick. It includes Senate Banking Committee members like Chris Dodd It includes House members like Barney Frank. Watch this video and you can see them strutting their stuff when the US watchdog agency criticized Fannie and Freddie in 2003.

 

They knew exactly what was going on.
 
It’s time John McCain and Sarah Palin stood up and let taxpayers know this as well.

Palin’s National Security Experience

September 8, 2008

Alaska’s governor’s role may be different from the role other governors play in commanding their National Guard.  The story is here

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system.  The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks.  It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.

As governor of Alaska, Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism ….

She’s also the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security’s counterterrorism plans.

Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets that are vital to the entire country’s defense.  Given Alaska’s proximity to Russia, she may have security clearances we don’t even know about.

According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out.  This is a woman used to keeping secrets.

She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.

Possibly we will learn even more about relevant (emphasis) background and experiences when she completes her first one-on-one interview this week with ABC.
