SARAH PALIN TELLS PRESIDENT OBAMA TO CALL HER FOR EXECUTIVE ADVICE, WHEN HER RISK ASSESSMENT PLAN WAS CALLED A FAILURE OF GOVERNANCE


The half-governor of Alaska, by way of her facebook account and tweeting, is telling President Obama that she has the executive experience to deal with the BP oil spill? 

How adorable.

Palin is too stupid to understand that in the age of the internet it is quite easy to discover the facts and find out what a loud-mouthed fraud she is. 

From the Anchorage Daily News:

Governing failed in emergency response

"I promised that we would protect this beautiful environment while safely and ethically developing resources, and we did," former Gov. Sarah Palin proclaimed at her farewell address July 26, citing creation of two new bureaucratic organizations.


Recent developments at the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) tell a different story.


In May 2007 the governor proudly proclaimed she was launching a comprehensive risk assessment of Alaska's oil and gas infrastructure. The Alaska Risk Assessment (ARA), which would cost $5 million and take two to three years to complete, would be "a thorough, independent appraisal" that would "identify facilities and systems that pose the greatest risk of failure, along with measures to reduce risks."


As Sarah Palin leaves office, the risk assessment is in shambles. According to DEC project manager Ira Rosen, the project is temporarily at a "full stop," primarily because the state has been unable to secure the cooperation of the petroleum industry to provide the necessary information. Rosen also confirmed that DEC pulled the contractors off the job after the project plan was resoundingly denounced during the public comment period that ended June 2.


After reviewing the proposed methodology, more than a dozen environmental groups and informed citizens (this writer included) recommended that DEC terminate the project because the risk assessment's original intent had been severely watered down. They felt the proposal would generate meaningless statistical results due to failure to focus on the condition of field facilities, the implementation of management practices and the adequacy of government oversight.


The risk assessment is just one example of a DEC problem that Gov. Palin has ignored. In May of this year, as Alaska's annual ice jams broke with unusual force, then-Gov. Palin visited flood sites and was effusive in her praise of agency response to the spring flooding. But Ed Meggert, the man who ran the field response for DEC's Fairbanks office for more than a decade, begs to differ.


Although Meggert was pleased with his team's field performance, he also had serious problems with the way the agency's home office handled the spring emergency. In Meggert's view, a bloated and dysfunctional bureaucracy failed to provide the field personnel, training and logistical support necessary to deal with the emergency in a timely manner."

What exactly has Palin accomplished since she quit her job as governor of Alaska?  She enriched herself and managed to get hired to speak at real estate and bowling conventions.  Most of the candidates she's backed have failed.  But she's been quite successful at tweeting  and facebooking inane, inaccurate, and dishonest claptrap.

I just found this...

As posted on Mudflats:

While Palin was governor, the largest onshore spill in Alaska history (210,000 gallons) went undetected for at least five days. Three BP gas and oil pipelines on Alaska’s North Slope clogged or ruptured between September 2008 and November 2009. All while Palin was preoccupied with shopping, campaigning, race baiting and getting a book deal. BP had another spill in December 2009 when a pipeline, while being inspected, broke from its well housing. Six acres of Alaskan tundra was contaminated. The DOJ began an investigation. The Alaska Attorney General, Talis Colberg, was too busy advising Todd Palin and other Palin aids to ignore subpoenas to notice.

All the sane Americans know she is a fraud. All of us and the people around the globe are laughing at Palin and her followers. How pathetic....

How dare you besmerch Sarah palins governorship. It's because she graciously left office because she accomplished all she set out to that irks you. isn't it?

Now that the state is falling apart AFTER she is no longer governer should tell you blind, liberal Hussein Obama lovers something. But you will choose attack her because of your jealousy of the successful.




There. I told you all I could post as a righty. I'll monitor my email for paying positions from the RNC.

Dear TRUTH,

You really can get into their heads, can't you.

LOL!

Boy, I sure would have liked to see his reaction upon hearing this. The woman really is delusional.

Shaw Kenawe said...

tnlib,

I assume Mr. Obama's response to Palin would be the same as a lion's reaction to a pesky gnat.

She's still buzzing around talking about her "executive experience" when that claim is moot since Obama's been president for almost as long as she was governor.

LOL!

Some people are just so stupid they don't know they're stupid.

Sounds like the result of a Stephen Colbert prank.
