I selected Sarah Palin as my very important person (VIP) this week because I like her. I like her spunkiness; I like her ability to articulate exactly what needs to be said. I like her clear vision of what is really happening in our nation and her fearlessness in letting her voice be heard. I believe that she plays a very important part in our elections even though she does not actually hold a political office. I believe she may be doing more for our nation by doing exactly what she does than she could if she were in office.
Palin uses common sense and speaks the thoughts of many conservatives. She to always adds a zinger such as: “People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation – much like building a mosque at Ground Zero.” Here is another zinger: “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.”
Here are some excerpts from a recent post on Palin’s Facebook page that pertain to what we are facing today: “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?
“President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGS don’t work in war.
“We didn’t intervene when over 100,000 Syrians were tragically slaughtered by various means, but we’ll now intervene to avenge the tragic deaths of over 1,000 Syrians killed by chemical weapons, though according to the White House we’re not actually planning to take out the chemical weapons because doing so would require `too much of a commitment.’
“President Obama wants to do what, exactly? Punish evil acts in the form of a telegraphed air strike on Syria to serve as a deterrent? If our invasion of Iraq wasn’t enough of a deterrent to stop evil men from using chemical weapons on their own people, why do we think this will be?
“Our Nobel Peace Prize winning President needs to seek Congressional approval before taking us to war….
“Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his `red line’ promise regarding chemical weapons.
“As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting `Allah Akbar’ at each other, then let Allah sort it out.”
