President Obama is taking a trip to the Alaskan Arctic.
I wish we could add up how much this trip costs the tax payers dollars……….. They probably had to BARGE limousines here!!!!!!! They rented out an entire TOWER at our nicest hotel here? A TOWER!!!!!!!!!!
(Yes it costs a lot of money for the President to travel. We get that. Perhaps it would cost less if everybody wasn't always agitating people into threatening his life.)
Shut down most of downtown Anchorage.. So many protesters here in Alaska this morning awaiting his arrival.. This is just a joke for us.. (Not a joke to these Alaskans.)
I’m completely dumbfounded by his trip here. Why again? (To talk about Climate Change mostly, you can read about that here.)
And what does he seem most concerned about? Renaming a mountain. (Nope, that's not it.)
He announced yesterday that he will be renaming Mt. McKinley, Denali, its “traditional Native American name.” (Why is that last part in quotation marks? Does she thing that is a false claim?) But renaming a mountain is not going to make up for all the other ways he has let down the Alaskan people.
Why doesn’t he check out our oil fields? Why doesn’t he open our pipeline so we can supply our own natural gas instead of buying it from our enemies in the Middle East… This is just a joke… (The President is allowing Shell to drill in the Arctic Ocean, making many of his supporters quite angry, isn't THAT enough for this bitch?) The next election can’t come any sooner. (WTH does THAT mean?)
The President should be worrying about the radical jihadists in ISIS who are gaining land and power everyday as they enslave, rape, and murder their way through the Middle East. He should be worrying about Pastor Saeed and the other Americans held hostage in Iran while we send billions of dollars to them in a horrible nuclear deal. He should be worrying about the economy, which still hasn’t fully recovered. You should be worrying about our broken immigration system.
The list goes on and on. But instead he worries about renaming a mountain.
Mr. President, stop playing political games and start doing your job. (Says the ghostwriter, for the daughter, of the woman who quit her job a little more than halfway through.)
That’s what Alaskans really care about.
By the way, no one is buying the “Denali is what the Alaskans have called it for years” line. I’ve never called the mountain Denali .. and neither does anyone I know …
It’s Mt. Mckinley … It always has been and always will be to most of us…
What a waste..
Yes what a waste of SarahPAC money to type all of that garbage out in a blog post.
For the record Alaskans have been petitioning to have McKinley changed to Denali since 1975, but were blocked by those assholes in Ohio.
In 1980 Jimmy Carter renamed the area around the mountain Denali National Park, as a kind of compromise.
I have lived here my entire life, and the only people I know who still refer to Denali as Mt. McKinley are Cheechakos from out of state.
Personally I am a little shocked that Palin allowed this to be written on Bristol's behalf.
Every real Alaskan up here is going to immediately smell the mooseshit wafting off of the post, and happily point that out to any reporter who wants to ask them about it.
I don't know whose ass Palin is trying to kiss now, but she just lost the very last shred of credibility that she might have had left with the Alaskan people.
Update: And yes it should be noted that "Denali" was the code name the Secret Service gave Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign.
Which makes this post even more incredibly stupid.
Update 2: And yes Palin referred to the mountain as Denali as well, but Shatner did it better.
