Letter: Palin preferred

The Columbian

Let us compare Obama ’08 to Palin ’12:

He was a “community organizer.” Sarah Palin was a governor.

As Sen. Obama, if a vote was telling, he voted “present.” She lets you know exactly where she stands.

Obama abandoned Honduras’ ousted government, hugged Comrade Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, bowed to the Saudis, idled the wildcatters in the Gulf, robbed GM bondholders, distanced us from Israel, and insulted international friends particularly on the eastern edge of Europe, not to mention apologizing for America at every turn.

Palin’s clear on her steadfast support for Israel, her pursuit of justice as governor and has conservative proclivities on subjects such as domestic drilling, borrowing from the Chinese, American exceptionalism and nuclear power.

I believe Obama scares Iran the least. Sarah scares feminists, liberals, and our enemies.

Go ahead, underestimate her. But watch her answers, her writings, her speeches and check her record. She’ll tell you what she thinks, what she knows and what she can be expected to do and she will defend her executive decisions.

Obama won’t be able to. Mitt Romney will see to that. Personally, I like Romney. But Palin’s proven tough. She’s earned a top spot in the American discussion.
