Very interesting facts on two very different ladies. Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama.

By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.

The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in
Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national
politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither
side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style,
rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention
the things that I’m about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats,
because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow
Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the
Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many
of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits
The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti
and singing, “la la la la” (well, you know how they are). Name another
governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to
protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and
enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon
(the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them,
“don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed,
and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy
rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell
in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country
that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office
is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects,
known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85% of them and
placed them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know
that if we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she
figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous
governor’s jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the
money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she
could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to
her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State
provided security force (never mentioning – I imagine – that she’s
packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those
other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she
also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a
natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private
construction project in the history of North America. No one else could
do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re
trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like
this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a
place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they
couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an
investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then,
she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They
protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them
that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources
for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted
her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at
25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to
style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool.
But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the
names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a
half years. I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to Alaska after the national
election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these
adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever
told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda.
Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda
known better.

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media,
along with the Democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to
discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers,
dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter
ex-presidents’ wives.

So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has
created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation
of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she needs so much
help,at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie
Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help
came from the President’s own pocket.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49,
and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard
Air Force One to Europe .

    Palin is her own person who rose to prominence by her own efforts. Michelle rode Barack's coat tails.

    It's a no brainer for me, I've seen all I've had to see of Sarah Palin, to know I don't believe her to be a role model to my daughter.
  • pantagruella 2013/04/26 12:16:14
    The closer you get to being like Sarah Palin the closer you are to being a real American. Michelle Obama said she is ashamed of America's genocidal history but her husband is into that kind of thing. Michelle Obama would always dress in a very safe way. Sarah Palin would wear cool outfits which would be worth seeing.
  • KrisD87 2013/04/26 05:23:11
    if sarah is such a great role model, why did her 17 year old daughter have a kid out of wedlock?

    she is not even a real christian never mind a role model.

    I admire Palin. If we had more people like her in Congress, I believe we would get the spending under control. I hate what the media (and others) have done to her and her family while propping up a woman needing 22 assistants (at our expense) to help her get dressed..

    This represents a lot of what's wrong with the country, doesn't it? We tend to destroy the good role models while kids are being taught to look up to someone who needs 22 assistants just to get dressed and expects her useful idiots to pay for them.
  • KCurtis Bonboyl 2013/02/26 23:48:06
    Yup down with Capitalism instead these loons worship Marxism and Fascism.

    Nope they sure don't, useful idiots.

    Michelle has 22 assistants to do what? Soak up the taxpayers money. They must trip over each other trying to find something to do. What was omitted was the staffs that each of the 22 demand to "function". Let's see Momabama goes to military bases, which is good, but one good secretary could easily arrange the trips. As far as her speeches are concerned couldn't one of Balmy writers jot down a speech for her or maybe she could just write her own. Wait until Balmy leaves office and they have to relinquish all the pampering! I wonder how they will survive!

    No wonder the Senate won't write a budget and Nasty Pelosi says there is no spending problem! Who are they kidding?
  • mach 2013/02/18 03:20:12
    Hands down, Michelle is the better role model. First and foremost, she's the First Lady, a prominent distinction Sarah has never approached. Sarah could quite possibly be a good role model for the Governors association, skeet and trap shooters, helicopter hunter wannabes or slippery pig wrestlers, but she's just not that appealing for the average woman to want to emulate in regards to femininity.
  • KCurtis mach 2013/02/18 08:05:59
    Ha like you would even begin to understand femininity.
  • Mike56 mach 2013/02/18 10:39:45 (edited)
    I guess in your world, the mojor criterion of being a "role model" is wild spending. Probably you hate this county as much as Obamas do, so the more damage done - the better.

    Apparently, you adore the 0's boorish behavior like sending back historical foreign gifts and patting the queen on her back. The most laughable is your implication that Michelle somehow "achieved" her distinction.
  • mach Mike56 2013/02/19 16:41:26
    Michelle is uniquely qualified to run as the next president, that's all. And it will be done, if she so chooses, by utilizing her many attributes demonstrated throughout her time in the White House. She's not the type of woman who needs to imitate a man, like Palin to get things done. She draws on the strength of intelligence, experience and political savvy.
  • Mike56 mach 2013/02/19 19:46:32
    You are not able to address any point your opponents make, so you are choosing worshipping the unqualified snob and misanthrope.
  • '90skid 2013/02/17 23:23:14
    Palin, obviously. She doesn't care about what people eat. She minds her business when it comes to a person's diet. Michelle needs to butt out. She's nothing but a hypocrite.

    michelle obama eat as i say
  • remy '90skid 2013/02/19 22:14:55
    Sarah Palin is too busy hunting from a helicopter and clubbing fish, to worry about doing anything GOOD.
  • remy '90skid 2013/02/19 22:16:39
  • Hamilton 2013/02/17 21:01:25
    Clearly a woman of accomplishment.
  • Cindy64~PATRIOT WARRIOR 2013/02/17 16:32:06
    OH YES Palin is by any means is the BETTER role model!! MOOCH-SHELL is NOT a good role model..... how can a "COMMIE" be a good role model ...No I do not think so!! Palin has morals and ethics and MOOCH-SHELL has NONE!!

    Fantastic list of accomplishments. A lady with some steel in her blood for her convictions. Combined with savvy and good old fashioned sticktuitiveness for the people. And I've always loved her down home style and charm. She's definitely not someone's "yes" woman, not just some parrot with tits.

    ........... " No question about it, if We can finally impeach Obama, it's an issue in the Supreme Court, as I'm typing this, sensible voters should look for the Republican Party to nominate and elect........ Sarah Palin, a Real, American Hero and Patriot ....... I will vote for Her, just want to be sure She has a good choice for a Vice Presidential running mate......." .........

    I'll respect Sarah anyday when compared to Michelle and her "fetch" club. Michelle is if not more of a parasite than Barack when it comes to spending our money, and she could care less.
  • SunShine 2013/02/17 02:46:55
    there is so much difference that the list would be too long ..so just to say it briefly.. Sarah is the patriot who has given much of her life to the service of her town, her state and the country and who is actively working to help our country survive; Michelle, she is the one who has never been proud of her country .. the one that spent 20 years with her husband in a marxist, racist organization that preached that God hates whites and so should they.. the one that even tho her country is in a recession thinks nothing of spending millions of dollars to go on many vacations a year and takes half of DC with her, the one that hates our flag and thinks that it should be her job to tell us what to eat, what to drive and how warm to keep our thermostats..
    The bottom line is self evident..
