(CNN) – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made a special appeal to President Obama Friday, asking him to keep her state in mind when he travels to Canada in two weeks.
In a letter to the president, the former vice presidential candidate urges Obama to discuss the construction of an Alaska natural gas pipeline when he sits down with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
“Alaskans have appreciated your strong support for the construction of such a pipeline," Palin wrote. "This project is now moving forward, and I believe that a discussion between you and Prime Minister Harper would greatly facilitate the process now under way.”
The pipeline, currently in planning stages, could reportedly generate thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in revenue for the state. Obama expressed support for the project during the campaign.
Isn't this the same pipeline that, when she was running, she claimed she had built already? To pay for it, is she looking for money from the stimulus package that she opposed just a few days ago? She was against it but now she's for it? Just wondering ;-))
of course not gerry canadians only house terrorists. you guys are more gutless than the french
How about some wind turbines instead? Palin is Exxon's puppet.
Sara Palin is one smart woman and you Libs are terrified of her!
as a Hispanic, and Here in Nevada we love GOV. Sarah Palin I Hope she runs in 2012. She is the American dream we want to follow. A nation of self made people, and not welfare handouts.
She is still a governor of a state! Why wouldn't she press for something that could benefit Alaska? The election is over people. Get over your hatred for this woman. Despite what some commentators on CNN would have you believe, there are more pressing matters.
Gov. Palin's approach to the stimulus is pragmatic. She's putting Alaska first, but with the understanding that Alaska is part of the nation. She's not being as greedy for pork as some in her state want her to be because she understands that our nation as a whole will not benefit from running up deficits and debts.
I thought that she was a maverick, she shouldn't need any help from a
socialist that pals around with terrorist. What, for once the woman can't
speak for herself.
Go Away!!! No one is afraid to take you on. Stop being an attention hogger. Geez!
Dear Republican Party,
Please, please nominate Sarah Palin as your presidential candidate in 2012.
I find it interesting that Palin wants Obama to keep Alaska in mind when she just attacked Obama's stimulus package. Palin seems to be playing the "lets see what I can do to be in the spotlight" card. Hypocrite.
I'm not sure I want my president pallin' around with crazy people.
Boy, once she got a taste of the national spotlight she's sure loathe for a day to go by without being in the news. But that's OK - whenever she opens her mouth she reminds the nation how lame she is.
Wait! Can she also see Canada from her house?!?
When did all liberals become such hateful douche bags?
Sarah has a leadership aura. she is so engaged with everything, and brings that charismatic charm wherever she goes.

I don't know why Palin is asking Obama to help. He's never accomplished anything in his life.
Say Truth, did you fall asleep on November 3rd and now just waking up? Never accomplished anything in his life!!! Time to go back to that dream in which Sarah Palin is Gaia....
Blah Palin, when will she disappear.
So my comment about the USS Cole bomber gets the ax by the moderator and not the sexist, rude comments being made of Governor Sarah Palin?
Dick Cheney and Grizzly Sarah proves my point , that any jacka$$ can pull a trigger!!!!!!!!!!
Let me see if I get this right. Sarah Palin has gas and wants the President of the United States to discuss this matter with the Prime Minister of Canada. Here Sarah, let me pull your finger!

The President has better things to do than to pal' around with terrorists, ehem, I mean republicans.
I love Sarah palin’s no-nonsense approach to the issues. She’s not one of these good ole boy types that does nothing but worry about how many pet projects he or she might get.
sarah palin is a very smart women. She has great Management skill, and gets people moving.
I thought she had the pipeline deal all wrapped up! What? Another lie? She handed oil bonus checks to Alaskans just a few months ago!
