“If Sarah Palin Had Become President”

<p> Sarah Palin returns to Fox News as Conservative Tea Party champion and movement leader</p>

The Virginian has a fine article on If Sarah Palin Had Become President — “Remember the 2008 election? Democrats in and out of the media told us that McCain was old and it was possible that he could die in office, leaving Sarah Palin as president. The horror!  Well imagine that McCain had not self-destructed, become president and died, leaving Palin as president.”

The post then goes through almost 30 specific policies that would be different, including:

“Palin would not have allowed her ambassador to Libya to be slaughtered, along with three US service members, and told would-be rescuers to stand down” and “Palin would have expanded oil and gas exploration on federal lands instead of reducing it, make the US even less dependent on foreign oil” and “Palin would not have passed a national health care bill that is a 2000 page “train wreck” and that threatens to destroy America’s health care system” and “Finally, Palin would have taken responsibility for the things that happened while she was President instead of telling us that she only read about it in this morning’s newspaper”.

There is too much good stuff to summarize, so read the whole thing. It is amazing to realize just how many are the ways in which we would be better off with a President Palin.

The piece was noted in Glenn Reynolds’ Instapundit, which is one of the main Internet watering holes for the D.C. legal and conservative establishment, so it is getting good exposure.
