The Quiet Before the Storm????
Californians4Palin ^ | July 26, 2011 | JayniBelle

Posted on 07/26/2011 7:17:05 PM PDT by FrdomBelle

Sarah Palin is being awfully quiet, and I am hoping that signifies the quiet before the storm...

That’s because she’s not going to run. She’s happy with her role. Perry is only going in because he knows Sarah isn’t.

Maybe she’s trying to decide whether to endorse Perry, Cain, or to hold out for DeMint to change his mind?

The wife and I saw “Undefeated” this weekend.

For the first half I was sure she wasn’t going to run.
By the end I’m convinced she will.

I think it’s smart for her to wait, make money, avoid being a target, save money, and continue to be a conservative voice.

I’ll bet she’s in before Labor Day.
Oh...but I don’t believe she’ll get the nomination.

However she has also talked about George Washington being her favorite president because he was the reluctant president.

I'll bet she'll be in before Labor Day." She'll declare just in time to take part in the Tea Party Debate in early September (tea Party people asking the questions on CNN! Perfect for her!)

To declare now, when all the oxygen is being consumed by the debt twaddle would be unwise.

Oh well, I’ll be sure to catch her later tonight!

George Washington was the reluctant President?? Boy, I remember reading something in his papers that says he not only wasn’t reluctant, he went around making sure that everyone was “loyal”.

I'm taking one tally mark out of the "vote for Palin" column following her discussion with Greta. She echoed the talking points of the RINO's that raising the debt ceiling was a foregone conclusion and "we might as well get something in return for" it. That's pretty weak-knee'd leadership. Our Tea Party citizens in Congress are standing firm; shame she didn't show the same spine. There is no reason to raise the credit limit if you make the hard decisions and eliminate sufficient spending.

Sarah decided to run over two months ago. She’s just keeping the wolves at bay. She’s within a month of announcing, more likely within two weeks IMHO.

Yes, she talked and she talked and she talked and she talked. ..... And she is still talking and talking and talking ..... While you are still "Waiting for Godot".

She talked on Reality TV shows and she talked in $100,000 per pop speeches and she talked at book signings where she would refuse to sign her own books unless you also bought a copy of Bristol's book. (See below.)

It is not about being President for her. It is about talking and making money.

April 15, 2010: Sarah Palin income 12 million dollars since leaving office

So blind you are.

======================

Here were the rules laid down for the book signing at the Mall of America on June 29, 2011:

Bristol Palin with Special Guest Sarah Palin Book Signing Wednesday, June 29, 2011 5 p.m.  Rotunda

Look at Rule Number 4.

"4. You must have a copy of “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far” in order to purchase a copy of “America by Heart” and/or “Going Rogue” signed by Sarah Palin."

In order words, if a potential Palin voter wanted to purchase a Sarah Palin book and have it signed, Sarah Palin would refuse to sign it unless that individual bought a copy of Bristol's book describing losing her virginity in a drunken coed camping trip.

That is not the behavior of an individual that is trying to court voters.

That is the behavior of a family that is cashing in and trying to maximize profits.

Please God, deliver Sarah to us!

No one can communicate her honesty and veracity. She will open eyes and tap into hardened skulls. There is something very special about Sarah Palin. Please protect Sarah and her family, Lord. And above all, please bless and protect this blessed country of ours and deliver us from the surrounding evil of lying news organizations and partisans.

You should apply for a post on MSNBC, you are a great spinner! She clearly stated that raising the debt ceiling was the wrong thing to do, and she did not support it but she did not have confidence in the current Republican leadership to push Cut, Cap, and Balance, so she expects them to fold, and we need to get the best deal that we can when they do. I did not get one single RINO warning signal listening to her. On the contrary, she sounded like someone who would butt heads with the weak “politics as usual” crowd in Congress. The American people do not want politics or “deals”, they want solutions.

I saw Sarah at a Tea Party rally once and I was mesmerized by her courage and forcefulness of convictions.

Only she, and she alone, has the ability to stop the ObamaNation.

This is why I will rally to campaign for her when she decides to seek the highest office of the land, and I will proudly march into the polling station on election day to wield my vote for her and America!

Sarah Palin’s Alaska Trailer: "I’d Rather Be Doing This Than Be In Some Stuffy Old Political Office."

Do you understand the concepts of duty and responsibility?

Yes, I do understand the concepts of duty and responsibility and I do not see them in Sarah Palin.

See Post 32.

As the old saying goes, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going."

When the going got tough for Sarah Palin in the Governorship of Alaska that she was entrusted with ......

Instead of fighting the blackmail of nuisance lawsuits, she made it be known that the blackmail of nuisance lawsuits works to send a Governor running.

Running where?

To cash in.

To cash in doing stupid Reality TV shows with tabloid queens like Kate Gosselin.

Palin and Gosselin in the Mother of All Reality Shows

To cash in with $100,000 per pop speeches.

To cash in to the tune of $12 million two years after she quit.

April 15, 2010: Sarah Palin income 12 million dollars since leaving office

Yes, I understand the concepts of duty and responsibility. I have a Retirement Certificate from the U.S. Navy hanging on my wall but I get no retirement pay.

Why? How I can be "retired" but get no retirement pay?

Because, the Navy has me classified as "Honorarily Retired".

After completing my active duty obligations as a Navy Medical Officer, I never resigned my commission. Yet, I did not do the "weekend warrior" drills because I was on call 24/7 as the only one of my medical specialty in an under-served rural county.

The Navy warned me that, unless I resigned my Navy commission, I could get recalled to active duty in time of war and that I would not get retirement points if I did not weekend drill. I was taking all of the risks and getting none of the bennies.

I told the Navy that I could not leave my county uncovered, that I knew that I would not get retirement pay and that I knew that I could be recalled to active in case of war.

I told the Navy that I knew all that, that I did not need their retirement and that, if they needed me, I would be there for them.

When the Gulf War came about, the Navy called, and I reported as called.

Twenty years after I was commissioned, the Navy sent me my Retirement Certificate and took me off the rolls of Reserve officers subject to immediate active duty recall in time of war.

So, yes, I understand the concepts of duty and responsibility and I carried out my duty, as I saw it, above and beyond what the Navy expected ..... for NO money.

I did not QUIT.

Nah ... But nice try. Check my post history. I'm a huge Palin fan. My point is that anyone ... ANYONE ... EVEN PALIN ... who says raising the nation's credit limit is a "foregone conclusion" is not holding the same water as our freshmen Tea Party congressmen, and the Conservative congressmen they are working with, that have already denied the votes to Boehner he needs for his kick-the-can-ten-years bill. I like Palin. But she's human. And assuming the nation will fall apart if the credit limit isn't raised is erroneous. She echoed that mistake -- an honest mistake, I believe, but a mistake nonetheless -- in agreeing with the RINO crowd that more must inevitably be borrowed than cut. You like Palin, that makes you pretty intelligent, but don't strap the blinders on. I'll take that job at MSNBC, though. But only because they need someone to bring them back from the far left.
