Remarks by President Palin on the Situation in Egypt

Grand Foyer

 

Good evening, everybody.  Over the past few days, the American public has watched the situation developing there in Egypt.  It’s a difficult situation. This is that 3 am White House phone call that didn’t go to my answering machine, although I wish it did. We watched history unfolding in our backyard, the history that made us realize that it’s time for America to make the right choice.

I want to make a good and wise choice in terms of who we should be supporting and standing by.  All these days my administration has been studying the nitty-gritty details about who will be taking the place of MuBurka. And all these days as I am studying this, I remember that mantra that our Founding Father Reagan lived by –“Trust but check” oh… I mean “Trust, but verify.” We all want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that it is a true sincere desire for freedoms.

The challenge that we have though, is how do we verify what it is that we are being told, what it is that the American public is being fed via mainstream media, via the protestors, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to really have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is.

And as there is still information that needs to be gathered and understood as to who it will be that fills now the void in the government, let me flesh out our core principles.

First, if the Muslim Brotherhood fills the void, we should not stand for that, or with that or by that. Any radical Islamists we should not support, no, that is not who we should be supporting and standing by.

Second, we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.

Third, our Moobark, long-term friend of the American public, he’s gone, one way or the other. He is not going to be the leader of Egypt, that’s a preliminary report from my intelligent sources.  Surely they know more than the rest of us know.  I trust them, so that’s a given.

I also would like to strongly condemn violence against my former colleagues, devoted truth-seekers -- journalists of Fox News, who risked their lives to cover the upheaval with courage and commitment there in Caliphate, I mean, Cairo.

Lastly, remember, my fellow citizens, we Americans need to produce more of our own oil and gas.

And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: In Alaska we’ve got lots of both. Even if Egypt does not have much of gas or oil, they might acquire pipelines and find oil wells under their pyramids. And then we wouldn’t want to leave ourselves at the mercy of our foreign suppliers. We need to drill.

To tell you the truth, I'm not real enthused about what it is being done here about there in Egypt and in these other European areas that are so volatile right now, because obviously it’s not just Egypt, but the other countries, too, where we are seeing uprisings.

Furthermore, we know that, now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind here in the White House.  We need to know what it is that America stands for, so we know who it is that America will stand with. And I will get back to you on that one.

Thank you all and may God bless America.

 

President Palin exits.

A young man enters with a badge “Press Secretary.” He is new.

He closes the press conference:

Ms. President will not be taking your questions at this time. But as the new Press Secretary, I want to inform you that Todd will no longer be serving as press secretary, and that Ms. President is not planning to take any questions about the former first dude in the future.
