Video: Palin on Alaska’s new natural-gas pipeline and the dangers of Obamanomics

posted at 1:00 pm on June 13, 2009 by Allahpundit

‘Cuda fans have been begging us to post this, partly because it shows how effective she can be when she’s comfortable during an interview and partly because it’s an opportunity to tout her triumph in bringing Exxon on board to help build Alaska’s ambitious new natural-gas pipeline. Credit to Blitzer and CNN for giving her an opportunity to talk policy at length; the obligatory questions about the Letterman trainwreck don’t come until the very end, after an extended discussion of energy and an elaboration on what she meant when she said the tentacles of federal aid to the states will lead to “controlling the people.” More like this, please.

AP caved ;)

I don’t care what anybody says. I just can’t stand her voice. Its like nails on a chalkboard.

Terry Silver on June 13, 2009 at 1:03 PM

Kudos allah I couldnt find this clip on CNN earlier

I’ve been saying that about Obama forever… but no… he’s the world’s most all time awesomest orator… or something…

Terry, I understand your sensitivity to her voice. Afterall, the great orator has been giving you lullaby times for months now.

nondhimmie on June 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM

Thank you, AP.

yogi41 on June 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM

I haven’t been a big Palin fan but she does grow on you. She appears to have conservative policies and she is expressing them better.

Vince on June 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM

Well, finally. Good stuff.

I’m noticing a few dropped pronouns at the beginning of some of her sentences. Is that colloquial, or is she trying to avoid using “I” in association with a few topics?

Count to 10 on June 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM

She could talk about paperclips and I would still go all gooey inside.

birdhurd on June 13, 2009 at 1:07 PM

Her celebrity status can get her on any news outlet any time she wants. She should have a team of people helping to shape policy positions in opposition to Obama that she can hammer home when she picks her spots to speak.

The tabloid stuff won’t go away, but she can build enough of an alternative image that people will focus more on Palin the governor and conservative leader.

dedalus on June 13, 2009 at 1:08 PM

This is how she was in her pre-VP nominee days, apparently. I watched several clips of her debating, making speeches, and giving interviews as Alaska gov when I was first learning about her, and she’s very articulate and confident. Talks a little fast and long, but gets her points across effectively. It was refreshing that Blitzer gave her the opportunity to actually finish her replies. Wow! Kudos, Mr. Blitzer. I must warn you, though, that your media colleagues may not invite you to their parties for a few weeks because you actually gave the Palin-beast a fair shake.

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on June 13, 2009 at 1:09 PM

As well as she did (except for the little missile, big missile thing)all I could think of was the venom CNN and Wolf unleashed on her that first hour of her VP candidacy…

mjbrooks3 on June 13, 2009 at 1:10 PM

Good interview for both Palin and Wolf. Now if she could just start injecting some Friedman, Hayek, or Burke references when talking about limited government, that would be money.

I didn’t say anything about speaking ability. I said her voice is extremely annoying. Obama does have a good deep voice though. I think about 90% of America would rather listen to someone with Obama’s voice than Palin.

Terry Silver on June 13, 2009 at 1:12 PM

Spc Steve on June 13, 2009 at 1:09 PM

Indeed.

The complaint has been that Palin is short on policy (argued from a point of ignorance, I think. I don’t say that to be rude, but she clearly understood her issues before the nomination as you can see in previous interviews, if you look. No look, no know = ignorance). I find it ironic that complaints about vacuity with respect to Palin exist here where the very definition of political vacuity, Ms. McCain, gets play. Ah, but she means well.

Might want to avoid ever traveling to north/central Minnesota amongst other places then. She has a very similar accent to a lot of the residents there.

You’re so right! Excellent interview, and thanks. I looked for it yesterday.

She is interesting.

Ah… you caught yourself. I thought you were going to say

“I think about 90% of America would rather listen to someone with Obama’s speaking uh-style than Palin’s.”

IMO, Obama’s voice is nothing amazing…

Let’s see, who would I like to listen to? I always liked Buckley. Oh, I know. Jim Lehrer.

Upstater85 on June 13, 2009 at 1:16 PM

BTW, this notion she needs to practice?

Anyone care to back away from that?

I saw Couric and Gibson both as setting her up big-time. It was shocking.

To watch Couric get awards for that type of journalism was very shocking to this “liberal” gal.

Think she can talk now?

AnninCA on June 13, 2009 at 1:18 PM

This is what we need… the real Sarah. When she was running for VP, she had to tow the line with that idiot McCain. If he would have let her be Sarah, they would have beat Obama and we wouldn’t be in this mess. Oh ya, I left out Huckanuts working against her too.

Personally, I’ll take a leader who respects our property rights and the importance of law…regardless of superficial crap like the sound of their voice…over one who DOES NOT.

But honestly, Wolf Blitzer should get kudos.

Finally, a journalist who simply asks the questions!

AnninCA on June 13, 2009 at 1:19 PM

Depending on his audience, Barry may drop the final “g” on the word “going” or leave it on. More subtle and more effective than Hillary’s fake southern, black accent. He also does it with a few other word, but switching from going to goin’ is the one I notice most.

Terry Silver on June 13, 2009 at 1:03 PM

I don’t mind her voice at all, but I have heard others say the same thing. One friend of mine had to flip the channel every time she was on. Granted, she is very liberal and didn’t care for her anyway, but she wouldn’t have criticized her voice if it wasn’t really a problem to her. Some voices just have that certain pitch and tone which grate on people.

changer1701 on June 13, 2009 at 1:19 PM

She has pulled off the biggest private sector job in the world. And who cares?

When the Palin bashers have nothing to say, but that they don’t like the sound of her voice, a corner has been turned.

Rebar on June 13, 2009 at 1:20 PM

Palin is too strong! I am liking her new approach to answering the questions. If she can pull off some more major steps to the natural gas pipeline she will have major political capital… she can claim it was all done with no taxpayer money and really created wealth and jobs versus the garbage of the left

conservador on June 13, 2009 at 1:20 PM

The thing is I have been up there a couple times and I think she is overdoing the folksy thing.

The counter-argument is this:

When she speaks this way, it’s natural and easy (note her closing to Wolf, that’s not contrived). GWB was also easy to listen to (as said about re: Obama) but after he moved to Washington he altered his regional speech patterns for what he, I assume, thought would be a more vanilla Washingtonian speech pattern. It did not have good results, in fact, as you may recall, the left mocked him as stupid.

I would encourage her, as I would in hindsight GW, to just speak their native tongue.

Spirit of 1776 on June 13, 2009 at 1:20 PM

“Who’s going to pay for this pipeline?”
“The private sector!”

OK, in all fairness to Obama, we don’t really know what “his” accent is.

Everything about him is contrived…

At least he’s not pulling a Hillary:

“Dem dar collaard greens shur is gooood”

conservnut on June 13, 2009 at 1:23 PM

“Offense rather than defense”

Oh, yes.

So much for she hasn’t been thinking about strategy.

I think Sarah is a lot more politically intuitive than most give her credit for being.

She’s very interesting. I love Bill C. I think I mention that often.

He sure saw it.

And if he saw it, I took notice.

He said she’s a natural.

AnninCA on June 13, 2009 at 1:23 PM

I give no credit to Wolf Blitzed. He treated Governor Palin with respect because he hadn’t been told by the big-eared freak to do otherwise. If she ever even hints at running for national office again, watch the venom drip from Wolf’s fangs. He will obey his lord Obama.

Terry Silver on June 13, 2009 at 1:24 PM

Palin shows her wonkiness on energy policy here. She does great. The McCain filter is off of her now, and she has returned to the capable, thoughtful, analytical speaker most recognize from before the election.

’12 is hers if she wants it.

I know what you’re saying, but there are times when you have to speak more formally or speak in a way that others can understand you…

AND NOOOOO… I am not suggesting speaking down to people, but if you don’t share their accent, then perhaps speak in a more standard manner.

Upstater85 on June 13, 2009 at 1:30 PM

^ Nor can Obama. They don’t dare. Thus the Tina Fey caricatures.

Palin can’t run I guess. Her voice is just too annoying and we can’t have that who cares what her policies are.

AnninCA on June 13, 2009 at 1:30 PM

Speaking too fast and too long is probably a residual effect of feeling that she will not be given many chances to respond completely before being cut off or rudely interrupted… can’t imagine why she would think that! Hopefully it will go away if she gets some coaching from a non-RINO mentor for a change.

And if CNN is starting to show signs of allowing non-Democrats to occasionally get a word in edgewise on topics they want to speak on, as opposed to responding to the innuendo of the day, I wonder if maybe Obama has decided the media is saddle-broken, and told the DNC they can stop the payments?

drunyan8315 on June 13, 2009 at 1:31 PM

Sure she would have. It’s what people go after when they don’t have much else. Does your friend have a problem with Barney Frank’s voice?

ddrintn on June 13, 2009 at 1:22 PM

She’s never mentioned Barney Frank, so I don’t know. And normally, if it was any other lib, I’d agree she was just being nit-picky because she didn’t like the person behind the voice. Sure its silly, and I don’t agree-I could listen to Palin all day-but I think it honestly irritated her. Some voices irritate me too, like Frank’s…and Susan Estrich. It has nothing to do with their politics, they just grate on your nerves.

Sarah has already done what the GOP has failed to do.

She’s cut herself away, defined the differences.

That’s a poltician’s job.

She’s for private sector support. He isn’t.

That WILL be the battle in 2012.

Good job, Sarah.

Now, work on those press releases. Tighten them up.

Palin can’t run I guess. Her voice is just too annoying and we can’t have that who cares what her policies are.

So, the WSJ says we shouldn’t build our own because overseas markets want to import theirs? Gee gollywillackers!

Her voice and the state of the American Idol Presidency…

She never sounds to me like she’s talking down to you. As shown repeatedly yesterday The Messiah’s “Uh, whoever mentioned socializing health care!?” eye-rolling patronizing make-the-idiots believe it wants to make me samsh him in the face.

She’s great.–I love her voice, I love her style, I love her politics. Grassroots, baby!

She’s never mentioned Barney Frank, so I don’t know. And normally, if it was any other lib, I’d agree she was just being nit-picky because she didn’t like the person behind the voice. Sure its silly, and I don’t agree-I could listen to Palin all day-but I think it honestly irritated her. Some voices irritate me too, like Frank’s…and Susan Estrich. It has nothing to do with their politics, they just grate on your nerves.

Well, it’s that Sarah Palin irritates her. She could speak like the Queen and it would be the same story.

I betcha Hitler thought Churchill’s voice annoying.
He feared it for some strange reason.
