From her house she can see the future

Original post made by Walter_E_Wallis, Midtown, on Jun 12, 2009

Jun. 11--Exxon Mobil Corp., the largest natural gas holder on the North Slope, said today it will work on the long-awaited natural gas pipeline project with TransCanada Corp.

The two companies said Exxon will participate in all aspects of TransCanada's project: technical, commercial, regulatory and financial. TransCanada will retain the lead in its project and be majority owner.

The alliance of Exxon and TransCanada was hailed by Gov. Sarah Palin, whose administration is backing the TransCanada project under legislation -- the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act -- she pushed through in 2007, her first year in office.

She described the agreement as "very encouraging and exciting, but certainly no surprise, because AGIA was crafted to allow just this type of commercial alignment to take place." [Engineering News Record, 6/12]
Quite an achievement for "Trailer Trash", huh? How many quads of energy did Obama bring to market?
I was a Palin fan long before I knew she was a babe and a conservative, just because she did something to bring a new supply to the states, by realizing that LNG was not the way to go.

Walter,

Makes one wonder how a bumbler like Joe Biden could be elected VP, while an effective and intelligent woman, like Sarah Palin, was ridiculed by the left. If she does not run for prez in 2012, she should be made head of the Dept. of Energy.

Meanwhile, we have an ideology running this country which supports Iran getting "nuclear energy", but which completely shuts down any attempt at building nuclear energy for ourselves, let alone drilling and refining more oil.

Sarah Palin is the future of America, and I think more and more people are realizing they have been duped.

If even Europe is heading to the right wing, with virtually no free press, imagine what we will do given we still have the vestiges of a free press on one cable channel and on the radio.

Most Americans are not stupid. Let's hope the Republican "Leadership" catch up to us and support the CORRECT candidate next time.

If Sarah Palin is the future of American, I'm heading for the hills of Canada - which, by the way, has a lot more natural gas and other fossil fuels than the U.S. could ever dream of.

It's a good time to move to Canada, what with all the new jobs Palin's pipeline created, and with the increase in energy independence this will bring. Of course we will miss you, Pathetic. We always need examples to scare children straight with.

I only wonder why it is that everyone who threatened to move to Canada when Bush was elected..didn't. Why is that, I wonder? Could it be the economy here was so much better and there was WORK??

Please note that as much as a lot of us despise Obama's ideology, you haven't heard any of us threatening to move to another country ( nor making movies and writing books about his assassination, joking about his daughters being raped and gotten pregnant, calling any Democrat women slutty stewardesses, hacking Obama's e-mails,...get the picture of who the adults are?)We know our ideas will win out, after the Obasm is done, and we will come back.

America is waking up..link below on latest Rasmussen. VERY interesting by Dick Morris.
