What pundits should be talking about when it comes to Palin

Whether you’re supporting her for president or not, Sarah Palin is a woman who has been consistent, tough and principled. In fact, the same woman speaking out vigorously against the Obamacare mandate once spoke out just as vigorously against people being mandated to pay for weekly trash removal!

At a time when the Obama administration is directly inhibiting a successful path toward energy independence, I think there’s plenty of room for a presidential candidate who knows a thing or two about how to tap into our God-given resources in order to spur job growth and protect our national security.

So pundits, take on her record if you’d like to. Ask tough questions. Hold her accountable for what she has said and done. But how about letting her announce when she’s ready?

And as far as the “thin-skinned,” “no space for her” nonsense — give us a break.
