I was talking to a guy about how Sarah Palin’s use of rhetoric bugged me and it seemed like she was in over her head. He told me the following…
“Regarding Palin, your statements indicate that you just don’t know her. I’ve followed her career since she become Governor and I’ve learned a thing or two, so let’s play question & answer for a minute: What is America’s first line of missile interceptor defense that protects the entire United States? That would be the 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard. What is the ONLY National Guard unit on permanent active duty? Again, the 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard. And who is the Commander in Chief of the Alaska National Guard? That would be Sarah Palin. What U.S. governor is routinely briefed on highly classified military matters, national security, homeland security and counter terrorism? Again, Sarah Palin. As a matter of fact, she has a higher level classified security clearance than both Obama and Biden and she has more experience commanding military forces than John McCain. Now, would you call that being in over her head?
Again, it would be great if we had a stronger option and I sure don’t much like having to hold my nose while pulling the lever for McCain, but trust me – the stench of a President Obama will be so much worse. Do you want a Bolshevik in the White House? Do you want a president who can’t decide whether he’s a Muslim or a follower of Black Liberation Theology? Do you want to help elect a president who may not even be an American citizen?”
Here are the links he gave me to find out for myself if she has this security clearance, etc.
