Statesman or Ideologue what do we need

We are in serious need of Politicians and someone in the oval office who puts the Constitution and We the People first and foremost before any ideology, especially before Socialism/Marxism/and Communism.We have to go all the way back to Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Reagan to see a Statesman in that office. Bush Senior failed and G.W. failed in several ways but now one holds a candle to Obama's massive Failures and he continues to make it clear that he is lost in a world he doesn't understand how to form a coherent foreign policy in dealing with anyone. He has failed when it comes to the economy and it can be seen in the amount of money spent on his failed stimulus. Had that money been given to families homes would have been saved, and a lot of people would be out of debt completely. We the People need to take back our Nation and get out of the party mode ans mostly stop calling each other names because in the end we are one people regardless of Country of Origin, Color, or economic status. We have to have people in office that know and understand the Constitution as it was written not as they wish it was. We cna do it but not if you feel like your person is better than someone else's. We need to find the right person for all of us and set aside the lies and personal attacks that do no one any good. Take Sarah Palen for example here are a few facts that never come up.I have used these facts before but they fit the tone of this blog. I may be all wet but I am old enough to remember not only when this Nations was revered around the World but when Californis was the envy of this Nations for being number one with our economy and our scholls were the best. Some would say we have come a long way since the fifties and I agree but where we ended up is not by any stretch enviable not in this State and not as a Nation under Obama. 1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as She took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar. 2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country who did anything similar.3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant.Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself).. I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand. 5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again. 6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.
