Since Palin has fought "against" big oil, shouldn't she be a HERO to the liberals?
Palin takes on oil industry, Republicans "She immediately took on the state's most lucrative industry, questioning whether Alaska - which gets about 85% of its revenue from big oil - is getting its fair share of the oil companies' billions of dollars in quarterly profits." "She is not pro- or con-big companies," says Mr. Irwin. "Gov. Palin didn't submit to the force and control of the large companies. She forced [them] into a fair, open competitive process." http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080829/NEWS15/80829045 LOL She SHOULD be for drilling in Alaska, it feeds her citizens! Just because she's for drilling doesnt mean the "for" oil companies. She's "FOR" ...... YOU!

She is from the opposite party that is all they need to know. However, she is a modern version of Harry Truman. He stepped on people's toes in the process of doing what was right and his 22% appproval rating when he left office showed he did what he thought was needed to get the job done.

What the Hell are you talking about? She WANTS to drill in Alaska - even McCain is against that! Edit: You contradict yourself - if she is for "ME" because she wants to drill - then conversely McCain must be AGAINST "me". WOW! Thanks for the input!

Palin took away a pipeline project from the Oil companies and is building it as a State of Alaska project. That actually IS Socialism. She has privatized a part of the oil industry. The Republicans are running a Socialist.

I just heard her say on the news personally that she wants to drill in Alaska. What makes you think she would be opposed to big oil?
