If I haven’t posted something from American Thinker I have not done well by the readers of this blog. Today is an article that has also been going around as an email.
Palin’s Commencement Address
by Pamela Geller
Sarah Palin’s Farewell Address as Governor of Alaska Sunday was no farewell address at all. It was just the beginning; it was a commencement address. “I will fight even harder for you, for what is right and for the truth,” she promised. “And I have never felt I needed a title to do that!”
Her speech embodied what a great American sounds like, and what a President ought to sound like. Palin made no apologies. She said nothing like Obama’s inane drone of “America’s best days are behind us.” No tearing down of our nation. Obama ranks on us; Palin raises us up and speaks of national pride.
First and foremost, she thanked our brave men and women defending this great nation and ripped the media, warning:
“You represent what could and should be a respected, honest profession that could and should be a cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that’s why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how about, in honor of the American soldier, you quit makin’ things up?”
She briefly outlined her plans for real energy independence — American resources for Americans — speaking of commercializing our clean natural gas (AGEA) as the first private sector energy project in the history of America. Palin believes (and rightly so) that the pressing issue of our time is energy independence. “There is,” she said, “an inherent link between energy and prosperity…We will prove you can be pro-development and pro-environment because no one loves their clean air, and their land, and their wildlife more than an Alaskan. We will protect it!”
This is just a portion of the address and the article, READ IT ALL.
