The Elite Media Still Not Talking Much About Candidate’s Records

Posted by iusbvision on October 2, 2008

While the elite media is talking about zingers and gotcha’s what about the record?

We do not hera much About Obama at the Woods Foundation or the Chicago Annenberg Challenge or when he worked with ACORN.

We don’t get much about Biden’s record in foriegn policy during the cold war and the first Iraq war.

We don’t get much about McCain’s record trying to fix the mortgage industry before this debacle happened or his efforts for ethics and spending reform in Congress.

The media poopooh’s Obama’s relationship with the mortgage industry.

Of course they don’t talk about Palin’s record as far as her accomplishments are concerned.

Today RMCPac sent me this little reminder:

Governor Sarah Palin made history on Dec. 4, 2006, when she took office. As the 11th governor of Alaska, as the first woman to hold that office, she has been a leader:


·         Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program that provides support for low-income older Alaskans.

·         Created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office

·         Created Climate Change Subcabinet for Alaska.

·         Overhauled the state’s ethics laws

·         Developed a competitive process to construct a gas pipeline [which languished for decades and is the largest state financed infrastructure project in US History].

·         Chaired the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.

·         Chaired the National Governor’s Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee,

·         Served two terms on the City Council and two terms as the mayor/manager of Wasilla.  

·         Chaired the Alaska Conservation Commission.

·         Presided over the Alaska Conference of Mayors.

We have written stories covering all of these issues. Just use the handy seach feature in the upper left hand corner of this page.
