    All I have to say is the best candidate with a proven resume is the best qualified to hire unlike a affirmitive action candidate who has less qualifications on his resume. Barack Obama has proven his lack of political and business executive experience is not the solution for this country. On the other hand, people are not aware of Sarah Palins true record of executive and business experience that she accomplished. This record reflects Palins views of what she would enact upon the United States. These are good conservative views that will help this country get back on track. Palin is for small government at the record shows. That is what is needed in Washington. The record shows she has a record of putting people of her own party in jail for corruption. I think she would do this Washington and purge it of corrupt politicians and lobbyist. Look this over and give your politcal views on these policies and budgets.

    Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship :

    *Governor Palin’s cornerstone accomplishment is AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palin’s governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and helps put us on the path to energy independence.

    *Governor Palin’s administration opened up drilling for oil and natural gas at Pt. Thompson for the first time in decades.

    *Governor Palin created the Alaska’s Petroleum Integrity Office to oversee all aspects of energy development and to make sure oilfield equipment was safe to operate and a Climate Change Subcabinet to comprehensively and honestly evaluate climate change.

    Fiscal Conservatism

    * Governor Palin reduced spending in her budget for Fiscal Year 2010 by more than one billion dollars from the previous governor’s Fiscal Year 2007 budget, a 9.5% real reduction in spending. Her FY2010 budget was $10.57 billion compared to Governor Murkowski’s FY2007 budget of nearly $11.7 billion. At the same time, she fulfilled her campaign promise to forward fund education, allowing districts greater flexibility and predictability in their planning.

    Murkowski Budget 2007

    http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/08_OMB/budget/Enacted/FY2008_ConfComm_Less_Vetoes_Fiscal_Summary.pdf

    Palin Budget 2010

    http://www.gov.state.ak.us/omb/10_omb/budget/bills/Budget_Press_Release_5-21-09.pdf

    Total reduction in spending between 2007 and 2010: a whopping 9.5% or $1,127,400,000

    A general rule of thumb for both liberal and conservative administrations is to claim that they may reasonably increase spending every year at a rate of 2% to 3% because of inflation and that should not count against them as increased spending. Even if we use the low end of inflation at 2%, Governor Palin’s budget could have been (without calling it a spending increase): $12,413,374,459.20

    Of course, the budget is not $12.4 billion; it is actually $10.57 billion. In other words, she cut spending.

    When Governor Palin set out to cut Alaska’s dependence on government funds, she was serious!

    Check out these numbers:

    Here is a gigantic 80% drop in federal earmark requests by the Alaska governor’s office.

    *Governor Palin reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration, requesting only earmarks that would benefit the country as a whole.

    See what I mean about leading by example? Not only has Governor Palin dropped the federal requests for money by 80%, she had also been slowly chipping away at these numbers since the beginning of her administration.

    FFY2007- Gov. Murkowski 63 projects at $349,497,000

    http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/10_omb/budget/10 PDFs/FFY07_Approp_Requests.pdf

    FFY08- Gov. Palin 52 projects at $256,037,000

    http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/10_omb/budget/10 PDFs/FFY08_Approp_Requests.pdf

    FFY09- Gov. Palin 31 projects at $195,094,900

    http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/10_omb/budget/10 PDFs/FFY09_Approp_Requests.pdf

    FFY10- Gov. Palin: 8 projects @ $69,100,000

    http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/10_omb/budget/10 PDFs/FFY10_Approp_Requests.pdf

    As you can clearly see, there was a noticeable drop in federal requests year after year during Governor Palin's administration.

    *Governor Palin opposed much of the "stimulus", wanting only to accept 55% of the money allocated to Alaska, specifically only dollars dedicated to infrastructure [projects. Although the Alaskan legislature ultimately overturned her veto, she stood firm on her commitment to help Alaska to become more self-sufficient while not adding to not add to the skyrocketing national debt.

    * Governor Palin invested $5 billion in state savings.

    Walking the Walk on Fiscal Responsibility

    *Governor Palin sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor. She state it was an unnecessary financial burden on the state and was unable to land on many of the state’s landing strips.

    * To cut costs that would be incurred by continuing to use a personal driver like previous governors, the governor drove herself from Wasilla to her office in Anchorage. She also dismissed the governor’s personal chef stationed in Juneau, Alaska’s capital.

    * Governor Palin accepted less state per diem for herself and her family than her predecessors even though she had a larger family.

    10th Amendment Advocacy/Promotion of State Constitution

    *Showing that she is a strong supporter of the 10th amendment, Governor Palin advocated for the sovereignty of the state of Alaska.

    *Governor Palin’s administration sued the federal government for placing the polar bear on the endangered species list, as this restriction affected energy development which would increase energy costs.

    *A Constitutionalist, Governor Palin signed Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) bill into law. The Alaska constitution states that the Alaskan people own the oil and other resources. This law ensures that the "owners", the people of Alaska, receive a clear and equitable share of oil profits.

    National Defense/Veterans

    *Governor Palin supported ground-based missile defense Ft Greely and other Alaskan Bases around to protect America from America’s enemies. She criticized the Obama administration for cuts that they made to this national defense system.

    *Governor Palin, with Senators Murkowski and Begich, fought for retirement benefits from the federal government that were due to the Alaska Territorial Guard members who fought during World War II. These benefits were eventually rewarded to these veterans by the federal government.

    * Governor Palin visited Alaskan soldiers in Kosovo and Kuwait.

    Transparency/Anti-Corruption

    *Governor Palin signed bipartisan ethics reform legislation into law that helped to hold both the legislative and executive branches accountable.

    *Governor Palin put the state checkbook online, allowing all constituents to see how state money was being spent.

    Health Care

    *Governor Palin introduced health care transparency legislation which aimed at putting information in the hands of consumers about cost and quality of health care as a way to make health care consumer driven and accessible.

    Sanctity and Dignity of All Life

    * Governor Palin strongly supported both parental consent and parental notification legislation.

    *Governor Palin increased educational funding for special needs’ children.

    *Governor Palin implemented the Senior Benefits Program to support low income seniors.

    Positions Held while Governor

    * Chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.

    *Vice Chair of the National Governors Association Natural Resource Committee.

    * She served as chair of the Alaska Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s most valuable non-renewable resources: oil and gas. She was elected by her peers to serve as president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. In this role, she worked with local, state and federal officials to promote solutions to the needs of Alaska’s communities.

    She exposed legal violations and conflicts of interest of Alaska Republican leaders, including the former state Attorney General and the State GOP Chairman (who was also an Oil & Gas Commissioner), who was doing work for the party on public time and supplying a lobbyist with a sensitive e-mail. Several went to jail.

    Governor Palin signed several pieces of legislation and resolutions during July 2009. They were:

    •SB-125: Encourage aerospace development in AK

    •SB-177: Extend sunset for sport fishing guides and address harvest data collection

    •Pro-energy development and missile defense resolutions

    Governor Palin's total appointments for 2009 was123, including 116 to boards, commissions and councils, five judicial appointments, one legislative and one attorney general. Governor Palin averaged one appointment every 1.67 days during 2009.

    As long as she isn't invited to a Bilderburg meeting or become a member of the Council on Foreign Relations or Tri-Lateral Commission I'm fine with her.

    Don't forget what she overcame to become governor too.

    With very little money she took on the state's Republican establishment of good ole boys, beating their sitting governor in the primary. Then the Dims, sensing an easy victory, ran their former governor against her. Though vastly outspent by the Dims in the campaign she creamed him by a bit under 10 points.

    But her resume is a bit lacking when it comes to experience as a community agitator like Barry.

    G. W. Bush had more executive experience than Palin by a long shot and he turned out to be the worst president in modern history.

    Your premise is fallacious. 'Executive experience' has no predictive value in determining what kind of president someone will be.

    btw,

    Mitt Romney has FAR more executive experience than Palin, as does Mike Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty, and Haley Barbour.

    Anyone honestly using 'executive experience' as a significant determinant in deciding who they want for the GOP nominee in 2012 would put Palin BEHIND every one of them.

    Prove MY premise wrong, smart guy.

    By 2012 the most experienced candidate in the race for the job of United States President will be Barack Obama.

    But somehow, this stupid 'executive experience' argument manages to discard that.

    Of course, that's a big part of what makes it such a stupid argument.

    No need to prove it wrong.

    Looking at your first line, it is based on opinion and not fact

    So your premise is an oipinion with no factual basis. So it can NOT be proven wrong....or right for that matter.

    Someone would look at her cross-eyed and she quit in the middle of her term.

    was gonna say... Wasilla doesn't have a population all that much larger than Brooklyn Technical High School...

    and her executive experience as governor consisted of a bridge to no where and quitting.

    tff...
