"The events of that day, which President Franklin Roosevelt vowed would 'live in nfamy,' proved for many Americans that aggressors would not simply ignore us if we ignored them...the sacrifice that began at Pearl Harbor is one of the many events that have defined the United States of America as 'the last best hope of man on earth.'" (Palin, 2009, ¶1).
On the US Secretary of the Interior's Decision to Approve Off-Shore Drilling in the Arctic Circle:
"I commend Interior Secretary Salazar’s decision today to conditionally approve drilling at three exploratory wells in the Chukchi Sea off the northwest coast of Alaska; it’s a decision that’s been a long time coming. The area north of the Arctic Circle contains some of the world’s richest oil and gas reserves. U.S. Geological Survey researchers estimate that it contains 1.6 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 83 billion barrels of undiscovered oil" (Palin, 2009, ¶1).
On Climate Change (Tweets):
"Copnhagn Climate Summit;Obama should boycott in light of bogus "findings"Public [leery] re:snake oil science,he must take stand on climategate" (Palin, 2009, ¶1).
"2 much of "global warming" agenda is merely to halt responsible developmnt;sound science must b foundation 4 Copnhagn decisions,not politics" (Palin, 2009, ¶1).

Lt. Governor, Alaska, and Former Adjutant General Craig E. Campbell Discusses Governor Palin's Commander-in-Chief skills:
Special thank you to Gary P. Jackson for informing me about this video, which aired in 2008. Selected quotes from the video:
"Right after she got elected, when she was sworn in as governor, one of the first things in one of our briefings -- she asked me 'where are our soldiers (AK National Guard) deployed and how can I go see them?" -- Craig E. Campbell, Lt. Governor, Alaska
"When she came home to Alaska, she brought home ideas about what soldiers' desires were, what family needs were and implemented those into law the following year...that's what a Commander-in-Chief does - is take care of soldiers, take care of airman, and she does it exceptionally well." -- Craig E. Campbell, Lt. Governor, Alaska
"She is above and beyond what a governor would do. I've watched and seen this for a long time in many states around the country. There a few governors that rise to the challenge and they take the National Guard as their own and they really want to provide the services that a commander-in-chief needs. Sarah Palin does that. She goes to deployments, she goes to returns. When we work the budget for the state, she wants to make sure that the state is putting the right amount of money in to support the soldiers' and airman's needs and our National Guard. When she does policy, she makes sure soldier's families are taken care of in the State of Alaska. This is what a Commander-in-Chief does." -- Craig E. Campbell, Lt. Governor, Alaska
"As commander-in-chief, Governor Palin is the one we look to for leadership and inspiration while serving and defending the sovereign boundaries of Alaska," said Lt. Gen. (AK) Craig E. Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard (Kosovo, 2009, ¶4).
