Skip to comments.Constitution Day Came and Went...No Sarah
Posted on 09/17/2011 5:21:28 PM PDT by CincyRichieRich
Constitution Day has come and gone. No sign of Sarah. Frustrated? Yep, I am. Dissappointed? Yep, I am. Do I have a clue what she'll do? Nope. I'm starting to doubt, though, that she'll run. I'm starting to think she's holding out for Perry's VP slot, but pounding on him may not sit well...but Bachman seems to be doing that well herself and deflecting blame. I don't know, I'm flustered a bit. Thanks for listening out there in Freepland. What say or predict you?
Nice to inject some humor into these threads! Thanks!
Must be time for you to pronounce me as banned or suspended then!
Someday I will learn how to get aholes like you to post my thoughts and pay my monthly bill!
Until then, I’m not done speaking for myself!
When was the last time PA voted for a Republican Presidential candidate? I do believe it was back in the 80s... If PA is going to be in play at all, it’s going to take someone a bit more centric than Palin or even Perry - just too many Democrats and moderates in that state.
The whole thing is a joke.
Do you two know each other?
Get a sense of humor or go away.
I didn’t know my father, he died when I was a baby.
We are both from that Big House in the sky. Where the Head of Heads resides.
Separated by birth.
He’s my long lost father’s great aunt’s great grandson, second cousin to my nephews niece, but not so close we couldn’t intermarry. I think.
Funny you should ask. I was just getting ready to.
You pinged me, but you are talking to yourself.
First off, that poll about views is over a year old... How does it look today?
Second off, I think Newt Gingrich and I have a lot of similar views, too - much closer than Obama and me. However, I wouldn’t want Gingrich as President. Just because I hold views closer to him does not mean I think he’s the best person for the job...

Kickin in the front seat
Sittin in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?
Bookmarked for later.
Why in the world would she get in now? She saves money, makes money, lets others pound each other and not her, not waste her time with 8 people on stage, let others waste all their money, let things die down on books and movies against her. Let the undefeated come out on dvd. etc...
I wonder how many posters here realize that “The Undefeated” is not available for purchase until October 4. Do you think that fact could have anything at all to do with giving the people the chance to answer the question: Who Is Sarah Palin?
This is one I want to reply to later in the year.
What’s your point?
You don’t like me? I don’t care.
Others don’t like me? I still don’t care.
I speak for myself, and if you can’t handle it then...TS!
“Romney is toast, unless...”
Romney is not toast. He will hammer perry on illegal immigration.

Re: Trolling and the futility of repeating ourselves
Fellow Cult members, True Believers and general Palin supporters...
As the end of Sarah Palin’s SELF ANNOUNCED timeframe comes closer, the Trollkind inhabiting Free Republic are coming out of the woodwork. This increases daily and aside from annoying the hell out of everyone, has resulted in a number of personal attacks on posters for the dread crime of supporting our choice of candidate. Allow me to get right to the point...
There is no point typing up book length answers to bring facts into the discussion. They are not interested. They will blow off your carefully researched data and opinions with one liners, diresion and mockery. As such, the only way to win the game is simply not to play.
Below you will find a number of cut and paste replies to most of the standard issue troll posts. Save your self hours of time best used to concentrate on working toward furthering Palin or any other candidate you believe in.
She can’t win/She’s not running
Answer - Prove it That’s your opinion and you are welcome to it Can you send me the winning lotto numbers too? I’ll wait until her stated time-frame ends to decide for myself, thanks.
Answer - 13 months to go. Call me back in about 12. ‘Reagan and Clinton shared that problem. In both terms.’ Don’t care what Liberals think
Answer - If you’re a Democrat. Palin is following the Republican platform.
Self centered/serving/attention hound
Answer - Opinion, nothing more
Her supporters are nuts/Cultists/Palinistas and bad for her image
Answer - Opinion and nothing more.
In fact, most troll blather should be answered with Opinion and nothing more because most of their ‘facts’ are just that.
So Join me in an effort to save Jim’s bandwidth. It’s environmentally conscious and makes trolls ‘green’ as well since they won’t get the attention they crave. Lastly, when you encounter one, take a look at their posting history before you reply. You might just decide to save yourself some otherwise wasted time.
Feel free to copy and distribute to fellow Cultists
You make the rest of us look bad. That’s my problem with you.
When was the last time NY 9th voted in a GOP Representative?
Blow it out your constipated grinkie, ya know-nothing fusslard panktune.
Romney is cold stale toast.
Uh...actually ..NO...you posted to me Mr. BigHead. I just responded.
Pennsylvania is no lock to be a Republican win in 2012, just the opposite. Obama won even after he slimed us with no jobs, guns and religion crap. Here in PA we have to teach the GOP that we’re taking down all the RINOs. The GOP chairman, Rob Gleason, is a lifelong business ally of the late John Murtha and he helped a rich RINO beat a good Tea Party candidate and then rolled over for the Democrat heir of Murtha’s seat.
Rino Mike Fitzpatrick lost in 2008 then won in 2010 with Tea Party help. Fitzpatrick has voted for RINO Fred Upton (electrical corporations)to beat conservative Joe Barton (oil) for the Energy Committee. There’s more but the clincher for me was Fitzpatrick called for compromise in the debt-ceiling debate. We voted for Republicans, especially Tea Party candidates, to stop extending the debt ceilings, not allow Obama to use our money to give money to his Democrat friends.
If we play our cards right, we’ll win the Presidency, House and Senate. Sacrifice a few RINOs and tell the GOP we’re not voting for RINOs anymore.
Pat Toomey is our freshly minted Senator from Pa. Times are changin’. We can’t settle for a mediocrity this time, meaning Romney or Perry. Bob
“Lastly, when you encounter one, take a look at their posting history before you reply. You might just decide to save yourself some otherwise wasted time.”
Sound advise!!!! :)
I got a live one here.
Been reading some of the back and forth, and you are correct, the Trolls are insulting and annoying. Your suggested answers are fine, but don’t forget there is the option of not responding, or just reply ‘yes dear’.
Sarah told us in her book, she is not interested in being VP, it would be absolutely beneath her at this point.
I believe she is getting in absolutely, and it may not be in Sept.
I got a headache will that work.
My problem with you is you are too worried about your appearance!
YOU have no guts to fight to win!
I want to fight this fight now so my grandchildren will have at least a chance!
I’m not concerned one iota what you think I must do!
Now get off my back pussy!
I agree on ‘yes dear’ or with any other mocking reply. As long as ‘someone calls them on their BS every time, the rest of us can sit it out IMO as nothing further will be accomplished. But someone needs to make the point that their BS is Opinion/BS etc.
Why that date? That is my birthday & that would be the best present ever. I think that just like Jesus says, only the Father knows the exact hour and time. He will tell Sarah it's time. (ha ha) For those who think we think too highly of Sarah. We know she is not perfect, but I don't know anyone who believes in God, country and following the constitution like Sarah. She cuts through the #@&% and speaks the truth. She's not beholden to anyone but God and country (and her family).
“when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws dont protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.
And Sarah Palin...
I am from Pennsylvania too, and I disagree with you because everyone I talk to doesn’t like any of the candidates running so far. What part of PA are you from?
RE: PA “its going to take someone a bit more centric than Palin or even Perry”
Like McCain, or maybe Romney, or maybe we can bring Bob Dole back from his retirement sleep...that would be a winner for sure!!!
OR, maybe we go with a true conservative,some one who’s views the American people side with by 52 percent versus Obama’s 40 percent...Sarah Palin. By the way, the last Republican to win PA was not a RINO, it was Ronald Reagan. Learn from history or you will forever be on the losing side.
I rather appreciate Theodore Roosevelt's 1913 response to this question:
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming...
If everyone here who says they won’t vote for this or that Republican in November 2012 follows through, Obama might just get a second term.
Can’t believe no one’s hit the abuse button. Maybe it’s the X-rated ‘entertainment value?’ Don’t get much of that at FR.
“We need to understand the reality of the situation and accept it for what it is.”
By your rational any tactic used by the DNC/MSM should be cause for every Republican/Conservative to throw up their hands and surrender. I’m glad I never served under your command! I’ll follow a leader with grit to the Gates of Hell.....and Sarah has it in spades!
PS you may want to quit hanging out with Moderates/RINOs. I’ll improve your outlaook a lot.
Let me ask you something. What difference does it make who is POTUS?
“If everyone here who says they wont vote for this or that Republican in November 2012 follows through, Obama might just get a second term.”
If Ron Paul gets the nomination then I’ll just stay home. No way will I support an al qaeda/Iran sympathizer.
Otherwise I’ll vote for any candidate who wins the nomination.
Maybe it’s because I and others are tired of being walked on by cowards!
Next time you want to talk about me behind my back, feel FRee to ping me too!
I hear the same, but when the subject of Palin comes up people I speak with just shrug their shoulders and say she's not presidential material (paraphrasing). And that includes the wishy-washy "independents" that will very likely make the difference next November.
What part of PA are you from?
She won’t run. If she does, she won’t win. But, I hope she does run.
Last time she was on with her, about a week ago,she said that she still has not made up her mind.
That's good enough for me.
Bet the people who gave her all that money do to.
