All About *Her*

So I clear out my Reader and I have 3 articles left, 3 I’ve saved for last. 

  1. From BookwormJames Taranto on Sarah Palin’s abortion effect on liberals
  2. From Backyard ConservativeLet’s Roll the Left. Sarah America
  3. From American ThinkerSarah Palin, Combat Veteran

All 3 of these are excellent articles and I encourage you to read them. 

But they got me to thinking.  It’s no secret I love Sarah Palin.  I think she’s the greatest thing to happen to our nation since Reagan.  I believe we would be blessed as a country were she to be our President, just as Alaska was blessed by her governorship.  She is a tested and proven leader.

What’s the difference though, between my (and her other supporter’s) love for her, and the left’s love for Obama?  Are we no different than the slobbering sycophants drinking the blue Kool-aid?  This has been on my mind for awhile. 

Sure, I love her.  But not for her gender, not for her race, not for anything about her over which she has no control.  I love her because of the choices she’s made.  I love her because she believes like I believe.  She supports what I support.  She stands for things I stand for.  She’s conservative, fiscally responsible, actively supports our military, and Israel.  She believes in my country just like I do.  ALL of it, every citizen of it.

And that’s the difference between her and Obama.  It’s sort of like Spock’s famous line, “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”  That’s what Sarah is to me.  She aims at what’s best for our nation as a whole.  She doesn’t believe in oppressing any one segment of our country to build up another.  She’s not a “rob Peter to pay Paul” kind of leader. 

Obama is more of a, “The needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many,” kind of guy.  He’s only about special interests, a specific economic class, a specific race.  He’s not for all of us.  He’s only for a few.  In my opinion, he’s only for 1, but that’s a discussion for another day.  He believes in oppression.  He believes more than half this nation is his enemy.  He does not aim at what is best for this nation as a whole. 

Why does the Left hate her and vilify her?  At this point, I don’t care anymore.  I already know why.  I care about what I love about her.  If she didn’t have those qualities, I wouldn’t give 2 hoots about her.  Kind of like Romney.

  1. I found it extremely telling, that it struck me in your second-to-last paragraph that if I switched the names it would be a perfect description of why I DON’T like Palin. That’s exactly how I see her, so narrow-minded as to be incompetent, while I find Obama to be extremely inclusive, almost to a fault. I find Palin to be concerned only with her own advancement, and to me everything she says about “the people” and “true Americans” is geared toward that, completely engineered. And I literally can’t understand how someone could see Obama the way I see Palin. It totally boggles my mind.

    I just thought it was interesting how we could see the same actions and have literally opposite interpretations. 🙂

    That is interesting.

    When you study the Constitution, which one do you find to best support it?


  2. Palin just tells it like it is. That’s why she has so many haters on the left. They can’t stand the truth.

    Can you get Sherri another glass of Kool-aid? :mrgreen:


    Plus, she proves them wrong about everything they believe, just by being herself. 🙂

    Ah, my dear friend is leaning liberal. All those years she told me she was apolitical so we never talked about politics, and now she wakes up on the left? I feel like a failure! 😉


  3. To be perfectly honest, Sarah Palin is the reason I lean left. I’m still very much in the middle, except for her.

    Wait a minute – it sounds like what you’re saying is that it is your feelings about a person(s) that defines your values and opinions.
