    Palin on Alaskan Oil

    “More and more Americans are recognizing it is time to ramp up American supply of energy… More and more Americans are recognizing your sister state up in the artic in Alaska has these supplies. We have trillions of cubic feet of natural gas; we have billions of barrels of oil still sitting underground.

    Bowyer: How Palin Will Help McCain
    Posted By:Jerry Bowyer

    It’s a big day for John McCain. It’s a big day for Sarah Palin. And it’s a big day for CNBC and Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s Kudlow & Company. The vast majority of mainstream media hovered like flies around Tim Romnlenty (or is it Mitt Pawmney?). This is about the biggest case of received-wisdom-wrong-again in my memory. A small number of big-time media outlets were talking about Palin, and probably none of them was further out ahead on this one than Kudlow. Guys, take a victory lap. I may take one myself.

    Now, what does it mean. It means that drill, drill, drill gets stronger. Sarah knows this stuff inside and out. She can back McCain in the defense of drilling, transporting and refining oil. She puts ANWR back on the map. Who knows it better than the governor of Alaska?

    The delegates may have been unified last night, but the party isn’t. Women feel dissed, and why shouldn’t they? They went majority for Hillary. She lost largely because the party threw out the Michigan and Florida votes (until Obama was a foregone conclusion).

    Forget this nonsense about how women are natural parts of the democratic party because it supports ‘equal pay’ for ‘comparable’ work. Women have become the emerging center of American entrepreneurship.
    They start business at twice the rate of men. I should know, I’m married to a brilliant lady entrepreneur (for whom I work).

    They know about capital gains taxes, and s-corporations. They sweat the details of payroll withholding taxes. They won’t be easy to fool into believing that a hike in the top tax bracket won’t really be a tax hike on entrepreneurs. (For more economic discussion, see video).

    Also forget the nonsense about women and abortion. Women are by and large a more pro-life demographic than men. In fact the most pro-choice group is young, single men (gee, I wonder why?). Who better to make this case than Sarah Palin who just brought Trig into the world this past April, her beautiful little Down’s Syndrome boy.

    Add the Palin choice to the fact that the drilling moratorium ends roughly a month before the election, and you get an election that will largely be about, drill, drill, drill. Sounds pretty good to me.

    v monkey 56 - they say that voters say the economy and energy policy are the top two issues that are #1 on their minds.

    Even the Republican Congress is still in DC everyday on CSPAN asking for Nancy Pelosi to allow a vote on an energy bill.

    Watch the videos from CNBC (a key leader in business news reporting) and I think you will see what a huge asset she is.

    TransCanada Gets Alaska Governor Palin's Approval for Pipeline

    By Eduard Gismatullin

    Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- TransCanada Corp., the nation's largest pipeline company, won approval from Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to build a $27 billion pipeline to carry natural gas from the Arctic to U.S. markets.

    Palin on Aug. 27 signed a bill authorizing the state to award Calgary-based TransCanada a license to build the 1,715- mile (2,744-kilometer) link from Prudhoe Bay to the Alberta Hub in Canada, according to a statement. The license will be granted in 90 days.

    ``Our company has started field work on the project in order to meet our target date for completing the initial open season within two years,'' TransCanada Vice President Tony Palmer said in the statement.

    Alaskan authorities plan to develop gas deposits on Alaska's North Slope that were discovered decades ago and left untouched by the inability to get the fuel to users. Palin solicited pipeline proposals last year and chose TransCanada's proposal after rival plans by BP Plc and ConocoPhillips didn't meet the state's requirements.

    Tapping the North Slope fields, which Alaska estimates to hold 35 trillion cubic feet of gas, would help make up for lower state revenue arising from declining oil production. Alaskan crude output has dropped by more than half since 1998.

    Alaska owns the gas; BP, ConocoPhillips and Exxon Mobil Corp. hold most of the leases to develop it. The two partners have invited Exxon to join their pipeline venture known as Denali to compete with TransCanada.

    State Subsidy

    Under its license agreement with the state, TransCanada will get a $500 million subsidy in return for seeking federal regulatory approval for the project and finding customers for the pipeline. The license doesn't guarantee construction of the project.

    The link will ship 4.5 billion cubic feet of gas a day through Canada to U.S. markets. TransCanada expects to hold an auction for capacity to help determine the size of the line in July 2010, the company said Aug. 1. The project could be operating by September 2018.

    London-based BP is Europe's second-largest oil company behind Royal Dutch Shell Plc. ConocoPhillips, based in Houston, is the third-largest U.S. oil company, ranking behind Exxon and Chevron Corp.

    McCain Taps Gov. Sarah Palin
    As Presidential Running Mate
    August 29, 2008 3:50 p.m.

    Sen. John McCain picked first-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate Friday, adding a little-known but reform-minded woman to his ticket. Introducing her today, he said she has "strong principles, a fighting spirit and deep compassion," and praised her record of fighting corruption.

    John McCain appears onstage to introduce his vice presidential running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
    "She's exactly what this country needs to help me fight…the same old Washington politics of me first and country second," he told the raucous crowd at a rally in Dayton, Ohio.

    Gov. Palin, 44 years old, thus became the first woman named to a spot on a Republican ticket, and only the second woman to run on a major party ticket. "I am honored," she said as she stood by a beaming Sen. McCain in her first few seconds in the national spotlight. (See an in-depth profile of Palin.)

    She called herself an "average hockey mom," and introduced her husband, Todd, and spoke of her five children. That includes her oldest son, Track, who is about to deploy to Iraq. "Todd and I are so proud of him and all the fine men and women serving this country in uniform," she said. The crowd replied with chants of, "USA! USA!"

    She also noted her efforts to fight corruption and highlighted her opposition to a much-derided congressional earmark for her state that Sen. McCain loves to hate as well. "I told Congress 'thanks but no thanks' on that bridge to nowhere," she said. Gov. Palin also took on her state's political establishment that had been rocked by an FBI corruption investigation.

    Sen. John McCain chooses Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. She will be the first female vice-presidential nominee on a Republican presidential ticket. Video courtesy of Fox News. (Aug. 29)
    The move is the most dramatic in a series of efforts to appeal to Hillary Clinton supporters still disappointed that she didn't capture the Democratic nomination, and Gov. Palin made an overt appeal to them. She paid homage, first to Geraldine Ferraro, who ran on the Democratic ticket in 1984, and then to Sen. Clinton "who showed such determination and grace in her presidential campaign."

    She repeated Sen. Clinton's line that she had "left 18 million cracks" in the glass ceiling that keeps women from only rising so far, a reference to the Clinton vote total in the Democratic primaries.

    "It turns out the women in America aren't finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all," Gov. Palin said.

    It's an untraditional pick, given that reliably Republican Alaska has never been a battleground state in the past, though Barack Obama has tried to put it into play. She's much less well known that other candidates who were believed to be on Sen. McCain's short list.

    "She's not from these parts and she's not from Washington, but when you get to know her you're going to be as impressed as I am," he said.

    Gov. Palin (pronounced PAY-lin) emerged earlier this year as an energy adviser to Sen. McCain, saying she has spoken with the Arizona senator about the need to drill more in places like Alaska.

    The pick wasn't problem free, though. Democrats immediately pounced on her thin resume, which runs the risk of undercutting a central attack by Sen. McCain against Sen. Obama: That he isn't ready to serve as president. The ability of Sen. McCain's vice president to step into the top job is seen as particularly important given his age: He turns 72 today and would be the oldest person ever to enter the White House.

    Misc.: Palin's son Track enlisted in the Army in 2007, and is scheduled to be deployed to Iraq in September. class="p11">

    Joe Biden
    Current Office: U.S. Senator
    Date of Birth: Nov. 20, 1942
    Age: 65
    Place of Birth: Scranton, Pa.
    Home: Wilmington, Del.
    Religion: Catholic
    Education: University of Delaware, 1965; Syracuse University College of Law, 1968
    Party: Democrat
    Political Experience: U.S. Senator from Deleware, 1972-present
    Misc.: Biden's son Beau, a captain in the Army National Guard, is scheduled to be deployed to Iraq in October. "John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency," said Obama spokesman Bill Burton. "Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same."

    The statement from the Democratic candidates themselves was considerably more gracious.

    "Her selection is another sign that old barriers are falling in our politics," Sens. Obama and Joe Biden, his running made, said in a statement. "While we obviously have differences over how best to lead this country forward, Gov. Palin is an admirable person who will add a compelling new voice in this campaign."

    Even as Alaska governor, Gov. Palin has been criticized for her sparse experience. "Sarah is a small town mayor running Alaska as if it's a small town," says Frank Smith, a former union and Democratic Party activist in Alaska. "McCain is out of his mind. He has no foreign policy experience and she'll help because she's been fishing in Canada."

    But the Republican Party's conservative base -- long wary of Sen. McCain and angry in recent weeks about hints he may pick a pro-choice running mate -- hailed the move.

    "We are thrilled," said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life Action, an anti-abortion group. In an email message, she wrote: "It's a BRILLIANT pick. In one move he energizes pro-lifers AND reaches out to Hillary supporters."

    Greg Mueller, a Republican strategist, and former aide to Republican presidential candidates Steve Forbes and Pat Buchanan, said in a blast email: "Governor Palin is a terrific contrast to the all Washington ticket of Obama-Biden. She is a wonderful contrast to Biden, and a truly outside the beltway pick."

    Gov. Palin was one of a handful of governors interviewed by the press at February's gathering of the National Governors Association -- and the only one to openly admit that she would like to be Sen. McCain's vice president.

    A handful of blogs that have long advocated for a McCain-Palin ticket were the first places of celebration. On the "Draft Sarah Palin for VP" blog, the host titled his post "WOW" followed by 13 exclamation points. "Put the champagne on ice and get ready for a party," the site reads.

    At a time when the Republican Party in Washington has become deeply unpopular, in part due to rampant congressional corruption, Gov. Palin is seen as a symbolic antidote.

    When she ran for governor as a Republican outsider in 2006, she took on not only a sitting governor from her own party but Alaska's Republican establishment -- vowing to clean up the political system.

    McCain looks on as his vice presidential running mate, Palin, gestures to the crowd in Dayton, Ohio.
    After handily winning, her popularity in Alaska has soared as high as 83% as she has gone on to sack political appointees with close ties to industry lobbyists, shelved pork projects by fellow Republicans and even jumpstarted a campaign by her lieutenant governor, Sean Parnell, to unseat veteran Rep. Don Young of Alaska in the Republican primary held this past Tuesday. The winner has yet to be declared in that contest, as Mr. Young currently leads by less than 200 votes and a recount seems likely.

    She hasn't been completely free of controversy as governor. A flap blew up after she fired Alaska Department of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan on July 11, and he said afterwards that Gov. Palin and her husband had pressured him to remove a state trooper who was a former brother-in-law she and her family had feuded with.

    Gov. Palin denies that, saying she removed the commissioner she appointed 18 months ago because she wants "a new direction," and offered him a job as liquor board director which he turned down. She adds she welcomes the prospect of an investigation into the affair being called for by some legislators in the Juneau statehouse.

    "This is going to show people just how vindictive and obsessed the Palins were with this guy," says Andrew Halcro, a rental-car executive in Anchorage and fellow Republican who ran against her in the 2006 gubernatorial contest. "It's not going to be pretty."

    Still, many of Gov. Palin's supporters dismiss the trooper matter as trouble being stirred up by her enemies. "Many of those who had been in positions of power and authority have been very envious over the past year and a half with Ms. Palin's great popularity," says David Carey, mayor of Soldotna, Alaska.
