Constitution Day Came and Went...No Sarah
Self | 9-17-11 | Self

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?

She is smart enough not to run with such enormous unfavorables. Besides, at this point, Perry would eat her lunch.


I think except Newt, she’d hammer anyone in a debate.

I hope she does run. I don’t think she can be bought off to go along. She never said that she would announce on any certain date. She always says she thinks it’s not too late for others to enter. That could mean different things to me. I am not worried nor tired of Sarah. I admire her stances. I will be there in her decision/either way. She is a strong person and knows many are wanting for her to run to tackle government corruption. I just don’t see the others breaking up their status, the good ole ways and friendships to bring out dirty politicians and to clean out the moderates from the GOP. The GOP now seems like a place for democrats who are moderate and weak. Feeling like there’s no place for someone like me. GOP needs to be conservative and don’t apologize for that. Kinda why I like Sarah. Keep up the faith. Let’s hope our candidate is the right one. Whoever it will be be, the media will try to destroy them.

I do agree her announcing will be a game changer. I personally want her to go ahead and do it, as I think they will vilify her all the time any chance they get. No point in avoiding them, just stare em down, they are cowards.

She can't win, and she knows it. Her unfavorables are too high in key swing states.

She's not running.

Good grief, how do some of you folks fall for this over and over. Some people tried to divine Palin would announce this Friday or Saturday based on the paintings on her “Da-Vinci” bus. Come on people, you can’t really be this naive can you?

Palin has no competitive state organizations, she’s done exactly nothing a candidate needs to do by this stage to run for President, she has insanely high negatives, terrible poll numbers and most Republicans don’t even want her to run. Stop torturing yourselves. She’s not running. Let it go.

And no, she’s not going to be Perry’s VP. Governor Palin will NEVER take a VP slot again. She wouldn’t want to play second fiddle a 2nd time, and no candidate would want her because her celebrity would overshadow them. Palin is young and may run in the future, perhaps 2016 (if we lose in 2012) or 2020, but it isn’t going to be this time around.

What say I?

I say impatient imbeciles will continue to tee-up snot-crusted trash like this so Anti-Palin scum can take more pot-shots at her. I say, with friends like you, Sarah doesn't need any enemies.

That's what I say. Thanks for asking.

She will run as a Rogue Candidate of the Rogue Party - outside the structure of the major parties.

I read today that Reagan didn’t announce until November.

In 1979, Reagan had already run 2 presidential campaigns and had an experienced campaign staff and fundraising apparatus all ready to go. He could afford to wait. Sarah has no experience running a national campaign, no experienced staff, and no fundraising apparatus. Also, if Sarah waits until November, she will miss the filing deadline in South Carolina and Florida and will have a hard time meeting the deadlines in Wisconsin and New Hampshire.

“I’m starting to think she’s holding out for Perry’s VP”

That right there is an anathema statement to her forever supporters.

I wonder if you can be forgiven for daring to voice that speculation.

I don’t know. My confusion lies in the fact that on the one hand, she is said to have planned on a “late” entry - late compared to others; on the other hand, look at all that has happened in the meantime. She steps into it, if she does, in a situation not foreseen when she made her long ago late entry plan, if indeed that’s true.

Romney is toast, unless...

The conservative vote is badly split among a multiplicity of candidates, each scrambling for their piece of the vote whether or not they have a prayer of winning...

I still think Romney has a big problem due to where the primaries are. We have to wonder, where other than NH will he win?

Perry has a more open road. It looks to me like, right now, it’s Perry’s to lose. However, if Sarah runs now, into that situation, people who support others would have to drop their support of the others and fly to Palin to make her vastly superior to Romney. I’m not certain that would happen.

People of the establishment GOP might be able to rally a “Romney because he’s not Palin” cause.


Thank you kind sir, at least among the “shut your pie hole” and other “shut up” arguments, some intelligent, well-thought discussion and analysis! I love this stuff...speculating is fun. I do love those here who make fun of the Palin purists...I guess I’m one, too, but won’t defend her like some here and actually think she’s human. The “whites of their eyes” guy may have a good point, too. Boy I hope I’m forgiven for speculating about her.

Your opinion.

Indeed it is. But I have some perspective from living in PA; I've spoken with enough folks to know that if she runs she will be trounced in this state. I suspect the same is true in other swing states.

She's just too divisive. The media has unfairly portrayed her, but the fact is that while that's an outrage it's also been an effective tactic. We need to understand the reality of the situation and accept it for what it is.

Why, thankyverymuchy.

IF, and I do mean IF, Sarah runs, she knows when her time is right. My opinion is she can wait and let the ablative material burn off, and she’ll be in much better standing. Once all the in-fighting and dirt digging and opposition research, and political posturing is done, all the announced candidates will have much lower polling, and standing. If Sarah waits until that moment to announce.... well, she’s already been vetted, and she could capitalize mightily.

Or maybe not. She’s pretty much detailed MUCH larger fish to fry than just being President. Killing off the good-old-boy club in DC would be a HUGE victory, and be so out of the box thinking, that it would make more Sarah-sense than running for Chief Executive.

And if there is ANYONE that thinks outside the box, it’s Sarah Palin.

Internet bullies. Just like RL bullies but they don’t have to actually DO anything. I have met and removed children like you by the score. Ittie bitty boys with ittie bitty johnsons who can only make themselves feel big by threatening from the sanctity of mommy’s basement, Dr. Pepper and Cheetoes at hand as ammunition.

Your continued “arguments” are like attackwatch — funnier than they are scary. But you acquit yourself well and no doubt are gathering new voters for your candidate by the score.

In the meantime, children like you should neither be seen nor heard (and certainly not read).

The situation as it is is that she will announce her decision on running when she is ready, not when Freepers want her to. Then we can vote for her or not.

Personally I don’t need Dem talking points to help me decide. You may believe she will be ‘trounced’ and you are entitled to do so. Fact is that she has 13 months to turn any negatives around and she has not started yet.

When Sarah gets in, it is going to be all about Sarah Palin. And the left will come after her with everything they’ve got. This battle will be titanic, her and her families safety will be at risk. I don’t blame her one bit for waiting as long as possible before leading her army into war. The fact that she has not said she isn’t running tells you she is running and will announce when she feels the time is right. I am prepared to wait until Nov 1, 2012 if I have to.

Reagan's unimpeded run?

Were you around back then, almost the entire GOP establishment were throwing every thing but live grenades to prevent his running. The media, they were lobbing Atomic Annie projectiles.

Jimmy Carter was his chief booster, thought he would be ever so easy to beat.
