Contrary To Her Speech, Palin Previously Praised Obama’s Energy Plan
On August 4, Palin put out a press release praising Obama’s call to complete the Alaska’s natural gas pipeline. The governor’ office headlined the release “Palin Pleased With Obama’s Energy Plan”.
“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.
But in her GOP red meat performance in St. Paul, Palin said,
“America needs more energy; our opponent is against producing it.”
