(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.
Not much pressure from a nobody.
She should become the ceo for Exxon Mobil,shes their mouth piece now.
Excuse me but wasn't this pipeline one of those ACCOMPLISHMENTS that the Republicans ... including Mr. Honorable (John McCain) ... tried to sell us on when trying to convince us that Mrs. Palin was "executive material"?
This is right up there with the jet that wasn't sold on Ebay and her claim of refusing the money from the bridge to no where.
Can you say lies and resume inflation?
I hope we can get away from foreign oil. But, I would like to see canada have jobs too, and feed their own. but do we have to see palin again/
What? According to Annie Oakley Palin and Maverick John, this pipeline was a done deal and going to save the lower 48. Just more of their "B.S. to no-where!"
She better be careful paling with "domestic terrorist" Obama, he may try to sabatoge the pipeline.
you guys just can't help but bash, eh? It's almost too easy to get a rile out of you kids.
Leave Palin alone, she just trying to create thousands of jobs and billions in revenue for our country.
You democraps act like this is a bad thing, especially with this economic crisis going on right now!
I thought your state did not need any money for anything. Why don't you ask Russia to help. You can practically walk to Putins Office.. right?
Obama will do anything for you, Sarah. Just keep watching the Russians, and reading everything.
Oh, keep working on the African thing. I am convinced that by now you know that South Africa is a country. I am proud of you!!!
Sarah just has to get her share of the pork. Carrying on the tradition of Ted Stevens.
This is news? There are other governors, and certainly 1 million more issues of more interest, please stop giving this poor quality politician coverage- except for entertainment value, there is none.
This is just great news, now we will have to pay for a pipeline to nowhere!
maybe she can respond as well as she did with the Canadian radio guys from Montreal. she is a dumb loser, but we have to suffer her her in Nome.
Isn't it funny how Republicans are the last to support this stimulus, but the first ones in line begging for money from it? LOL
What a STUPID woman. She claimed Obama was palling around with terrorists and now she's asking for favors. Sarah Palin is the epitome of DUMB!
"It does look like Palin is stalking Obama"
1) Cancelling a GOP invent to go to a dinner where Obama attended
2) At the dinner she slithered where Obama was sitting ( and he did'nt acknowlege her THANK GOD!)
3) Tracking his move to Canada.
Okay! Michelle its time to jump in. She's clocking your Man!
What a STUPID woman! Palin claimed Obama was palling around with terrorist and now she's asking for favors. She is the epitome of DUMB. I love how the Executive Branch of the government is snubbing Palin.
Forget Alaska! The greatest resource of hot natural gas just moved into the White House. Get a pipeline in fast!!
PULEEASE stop...no one cares what in the world she says/does. She needs to return to AK and help re-located the Ididerod dog before the volcano errupts.
Sarah Palin obsessed with Obama.
She is the only governor who seemingly can not survive without seeing her face on the television at least every three days. Isn't it unfortunate enough that we are in one of the worst economical crisis in the history of this country, without having to listen and view firsthand her ignorance?
SARAH, YOU ARE NOT A SENATOR, YOU ARE JUST A GOVERNOR WITH NO SENATE VOTE. SARAH PALIN HAS A LOT TO LEARN AND SHE CAN START BY TALKING TO THE SENATOR OF HER STATE WHO DOES TALKS TO OBAMA ONLY THEN WILL YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. UNTIL THEN, SHUT UP AND DO YOUR STATE THE HONOR OF BEING GOVERNOR.
Next up, Sarah Palin battles courageously for the right of private Alaskan citizens to hunt chipmunks with helicopter gunships, because, gosh darn it, Joe Sixpack deserves a bit of fun, don't cha know.
sissy, he won. now go away and get ready for armaggedon.
Wow, the times they are a changin;, huh? Now, Silly Sarah's writing a letter to someone she not-so-lovingly called a "socialist" (among many other hateful and nonsensical things) just a few short months ago and is she now pallin' around with someone who she claims "palls around with terrorists"? Goodness, Sarah, are you changing stripes before our eyes? Give it up, Girlfriend!
