Peggy Noonan, Kathleen Parker, and other Conservatives Should Defend Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has a lot of visibility and she is an effective speaker for conservative and traditional patriotic American values.  So, everyone who claims to be a conservative and/or a Republican should defend Sarah Palin.  And the major part of that defense should be to compare Sarah Palin with Barack Obama.  Sarah Palin is the conservative Republican in the public eye – our “rock star” taking on the leftist’s “rock star”.  On every issue where she is criticized, her superiority to Barack Obama should be emphasized.  Here are some examples:

 

Leftist: “Sarah Palin is a quitter”. Answer:  When Barack Obama ran for president he continued to collect his Senate salary though he was not actually working full time as a Senator.  At least if Sarah Palin chooses to run for president, she won’t be collecting the governor’s salary while she does it.  Sarah Palin has more integrity and is a better steward of the taxpayer’s money than Barack Obama.

 

Leftist:  “Sarah Palin isn’t smart enough to be president; she didn’t go to an Ivy League College.”  Answer: Abraham Lincoln didn’t go to an Ivy League College either.  Interesting that Barack Obama is a Harvard grad, but neither he nor his Harvard professor friend, Gates, know enough to just politely cooperate with the police.  Harvard grad Obama calls the police stupid.

 

Leftist:  “Sarah Palin has no foreign affairs experience.”  Answer: She negotiated the pipeline deal with Canadian officials.  Sarah Palin comes to negotiations with a core understanding of America’s greatness.  She knows Alaska history, and she knows the cost America paid for appeasement and military unpreparedness.  Barack Obama keeps apologizing to dictators instead of making them respect, and if necessary, fear America.

 

Leftist: – “Sarah Palin doesn’t know anything about the economy.”  Answer: The Palins have actually run a small business, made payroll, and created jobs.  What has Barack Obama actually done about the economy? besides having unemployment go up and getting criticized by the president of RUSSIA for being too socialistic?  Barack Obama has no experience in the private sector, and most job expansion must occur in the private sector.

 

Leftist: – “Sarah Palin opposes a woman’s right to choose.”  Answer: Sarah Palin is not in favor of a federal law banning abortion and did not push for an Alaska law banning abortion when she was governor.  Based on her actions so far, she could actually say, “I would never get an abortion myself, but I wouldn’t institute a nationwide legal ban on other women getting them.”  By the way, what about Sarah Palin’s right to choose?  If she chooses to give birth, shouldn’t everyone respect HER CHOICE?  Oh, and while we may not agree on precisely when life begins, can’t we agree that life has certainly begun by the time the baby is born?  And doesn’t that make Barack Obama’s opposition to providing medical care to infants born alive a horribly wrong policy?

 

You can think up other defenses of Palin; she’s sure better than Obama.  Deflect all criticism of Palin onto Obama.

 

Palin doesn’t need to be perfect; she just needs to be better than Obama.  Palin, Sessions, Romney, and Huckabee are all basically the same.  They’re all Americans and proud of it.  None of them went to a church for 20 years where the pastor cursed America.  None of them launched their political careers from a terrorist’s house.  We’ve got a couple years to decide who should be the Republican nominee – but for now we should all defend the lady who speaks up defending America, regular Americans, and conservatism.
