Sarah Palin Agrees with Obama’s Energy Plan and is a liar. August 30, 2008

It would appear that on August 4th,  the news section of The State of Alaska’s official web page reported that Governor Palin was very pleased with Obama’s energy plan.   Today, we find that the page has been removed from the website.   Luckily this is the Internet, where nothing is ever gone for good.  What follows is the full text of that article.   Here is the link to the google cache that caught it.

August 4, 2008, Fairbanks, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today responded to the energy plan put forward by the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

“I am pleased to see Senator Obama acknowledge the huge potential Alaska’s natural gas reserves represent in terms of clean energy and sound jobs,” Governor Palin said. “The steps taken by the Alaska State Legislature this past week demonstrate that we are ready, willing and able to supply the energy our nation needs.”

In a speech given in Lansing, Michigan, Senator Obama called for the completion of the Alaska natural gas pipeline, stating, “Over the next five years, we should also lease more of the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska for oil and gas production. And we should also tap more of our substantial natural gas reserves and work with the Canadian government to finally build the Alaska natural gas pipeline, delivering clean natural gas and creating good jobs in the process.”

Governor Palin also acknowledged the Senator’s proposal to offer $1,000 rebates to those struggling with the high cost of energy.

“We in Alaska feel that crunch and are taking steps to address it right here at home,” Governor Palin said. “This is a tool that must be on the table to buy us time until our long-term energy plans can be put into place. We have already enjoyed the support of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, and it is gratifying to see Senator Obama get on board.”

The Governor did question the means to pay for Obama’s proposed rebate — a windfall profits tax on oil companies. In Alaska, the state’s resource valuation system, ACES, provides strong incentives for companies to re-invest their profits in new production.

“Windfall profits taxes alone prevent additional investment in domestic production. Without new supplies from American reserves, our dependency and addiction to foreign sources of oil will continue,” Governor Palin said.

You cannot lie to the Internet.  We do not like it, and we are smarter than you.

Update: Here are some screenshots of the post in case for some reason the cache goes down.  Hey, stranger things have happened.

Update: Yes I am aware that she states her disagreement with Obama on the windfall profits tax.  The issue here is that this was removed from her website after joining the ticket.  It speaks to the fact that she is willing to give up or at least attempt to hide her true feelings in order to make nice with her party’s elite.  This is not a maverick.  This is a strategic choice and one that assumes the stupidity of a great many American voters.

And let the games begin eh!

McCain picking this attractive young relatively inexperienced governor from Alaska is a drastic, pathetic and gross example of how out of touch he really is.

Come on are you serious? I have one question for McCain if something where to happen to him during his presidency… does he really think this 2 year governor of ALASKA is ready to lead the most powerful country in the world?

Absolutely not… what a slap in the face to ALL AMERICANS.

I’ve created an image for the McCain – Palin ticket please feel free to forward to everyone you know. Here is the link.

Peace… and lets bring our troops home!

Thanks for reposting the cached article.

Did you read it?

All of it?

Look at the final paragraph. She disagreed with the ‘windfall profits’ tax that would be a key part of Obama’s “energy plan”. So, what’s your point exactly?

I’m going to run a post linking to this one.



4. Sarah Palin Agreed With Barack Obama’s Energy Plan « Your Morning Cup of Coffee - August 30, 2008

[…] Jump to Comments This blog entry is the best catch on Palin I have read.  Apparently she has ALREADY flip-flopped on her energy stance.  That has to be some sort of dubious […]

Wow. Can’t wait to see this being covered in the national media!

Sonic Charmer- Clearly, you are as ill-advised as you are ugly. If you were to read Palin’s stand on the important issues of the day versus Obama’s stand, you would realize that the two issues of the “windfall profits tax” and his “energy plan” are not – even the most remote way- mutually exclusive.

Right. A ‘windfall profits’ tax and Obama’s ‘energy plan’ are NOT mutually-exclusive. They are linked. This is because Obama’s “energy plan” contains a ‘windfall profits’ tax. link


“Obama’s comprehensive New Energy for America plan will: […] Enact a Windfall Profits Tax to …”

And, Palin evidently disagrees with that.

Still trying to figure out what your point is. Of course, I would, wouldn’t I, being such a retard and all (not to mention ugly)?

Please try and keep things civil. This is a forum for free expression of ideas. Let’s refrain from name calling. Arguing about issues is one thing, but personal attacks should be left to some other site.

For all of those referring to Palin’s “inexperience” … can you please explain to me in depth how Obama is more qualified, as a First-Term Senator?

Now Sarah Palin possibly faked a pregnancy? This just keeps getting better and better. Who vetted her? The DNC?

Who was that tenor singing the Nat. Anthem. I heard he is a Democrat, Democrats aren’t supposed to be Patriotic, so whassup wid dat? Sarah Palin and her husband belonged to the secessionist Independent party of Alaska…which theme is Alaska First!
So why didn’t they sing the alaska state anthem?
Gotta laugh at those reTHUGlicans.
