Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin which sources she relies on for her news consumption. Caught off guard, Palin could not name a single news source:
COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —
COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.
PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.
COURIC: Can you name any of them?
PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.
Is this the reason why mccain campaign keeps Sarah Palin away from the media?
Couric: Have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
Palin: We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It’s very important when you consider even national-security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right next to, they are right next to our state.
COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?
PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.
Remember Miss south Carolina who made the following statement:
I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because uh some uh people out there in our nation don’t *have* maps and uh I believe that our ed- education like such as in South Africa and uh the- the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe that they should uh our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or- or- should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future
Mr Zardari described Republican vice presedential candidate Palin as “Gorgeous” . “You look so gorgeous. Now, I know why the whole of America is crazy about you,” Zardari said, while receiving Palin, also the Governor of Alaska, at the Millenium Hotel in New York.”You are so nice,” 44-year-old Palin, a former Miss Wasilla runner up in Alaska beauty pageant, told Zardari, husband of slain former Pakistani Premier Benazir Bhutto.An aide of Zardari then told the two to keep shaking hands for the cameras.”I’m supposed to pose again,” said Palin, who has energised the Republican Presidential nominee John McCain’s camp.”If he’s (aide) insisting, I might hug,” 53-year-old Zardari replied, for which Palin smiled politely in response.
G7 (also known as the G-7 or Group of Seven) is the meeting of the finance ministers from a group of seven industrialized nations. The finance ministers of these countries meet several times a year to discuss economic policies.
Now here is some data as of 2006
1. France – Public Debt: 64.7% of GDP
2. Italy – Public Debt: 107.8% of GDP
3. Germany – Public Debt: 66.8% of GDP
4. United Kingdom – Public Debt: 42.2% of GDP
5. United States – Public Debt: 64.7% of GDP (Change that to 71%)
6. Japan – Public Debt: 176.2% of GDP
7. Canada – Public Debt: 65.4% of GDP
If high debt is considered a bad indicator of economy , then how come these countries are part of G7 that meet “several times a year to discuss economic policies.” Maybe an economist can help me understand that.
Countries which are not part of G7
India – Public Debt 52.7 % of GDP
Brazil – Public Debt: 50% of GDP
China – Public Debt: 22.1% of GDP
