Sarah Inches Closer
© 2011 by Anthony James
Sean Hannity just had Sarah Palin on as a guest with whom he discussed two approaching deadlines. One was the arbitrarily set deadline of August 2 whereby the Democrats are trying to twist the arms of the GOP, forcing them to raise the debt ceiling... basically, demanding that we give the junkie more smack.
Palins answers and general approach to the situation were, as usual, spot on. Her suggestions that the GOP not blink, and instead demand that our chief executive actually lead on this issue by coming up with a plan to get through the weeds instead of continuing his petulant game of class warfare and disingenuous financial sky is falling rhetoric, were also exactly what we should expect from a real leader.
The other deadline, a bit more loosely interpreted, was framed when Sean asked Sarah if she had a general timetable for making a decision about whether or not she would run for president. Sarah started with the general disclaimer that she isn't conceited enough to believe that nobody else could solve the problems that we face, then quickly segued into her belief that the right person, with all the requisite experience, record and skillset, was not yet among the cadre of current GOP hopefuls.
She then, in a more candid moment than we have seen from her regarding this issue to date, acknowledged that any serious candidate would have to have their organizational game on the ground and in motion by August/September. It is now July 13.
I firmly believe that she fully intends not only to throw her hat into the ring, but that she has a very innovative and strategically sound plan for winning the 2012 presidential election. By reiterating that she would not necessarily run if she saw the right person positioned to seize those reins, but that she did not see that person in the current group of contenders, this is the closest we have gotten so far to a firm statement that she intends to run, and intends to officially announce this quite shortly.
While I titled this Sarah Inches Closer, I actually feel she did quite a bit more than that tonight. She made it clear that she feels she can win, that there's nobody already running whom she trusts to do the job, and that it's only a few short days or weeks at most before she plans to make an official announcement.
While she didn't come out and explicitly state precisely these same words, she said exactly the same thing with the words that she did use, and quite frankly I could not be happier. For the first time in the 2012 general election season, I have every good confidence that we now not only have some light at the end of this tunnel. We truly have rapidly rising, very brightly shining star.
Checkbook in hand....
Tony has good vision!
The real TEA Party candidate.
See my tagline! Can’t wait!!
1). That is my birthday
2). That is the date that the Declaration of Independence was signed (no, it was not signed on July 4th)
August 2nd would also be the date that we're told the sky will fall if the debt ceiling isn't raised - it would really be the perfect date for her to announce.
Yeah. Game on!
Okay .. she did first reference the ‘legal timeframe’ here. I believe that’s the wacko ethics smears deadline, right?
Sarah will announce the day after the statute on raising frivolous lawsuits in Alasaka ends.
Dunno! I ain’t linking to nuttin’ on this thang!!
I think it *is*.
I can hardly wait!!
RUN SARAH RUN!!
And then again she may announce on Aug 13
That day I will have been in the US for 40 years...
What a great 2nd reason to celebrate !!!
The 2 Friday the 13ths I had the day I came here will have been lucky for me...
Then write it to SarahPAC. I have been giving $25/month since its onset. At times I was wondering if I did the right thing but time has convinced me that I did. Many made comments about how masculine she looked in the Newsweak (sp purposeful) cover but she matched that look in the interview with Sean. I imagine that the rigors of the summer catch are telling. Not a bad thing mind you. She just has the look like who the hell would want to mess with this woman?
Run, SARAH, R U N!!!
Congrats to you FRiend! :D
Libs everywhere would simultaneously wet themselves. :-D
Prayers for her and her precious family and for all her supporters!
“August 2nd would also be the date that we’re told the sky will fall if the debt ceiling isn’t raised - it would really be the perfect date for her to announce.”
Agree...she should announce, without ANY tip-off, that she’s running just about 5 minutes after Obama announces Granny will STARVE because of the mean Republicans.
She’ll time it just right....and it will be SO welcomed!
Monthly pledge, backed by the full faith and credit of fantail1952
That sign needs to be photoshopped when she declares. :-D
>>...One was the arbitrarily set deadline of August 2 ...
Not arbitrary at all. The RATs chose that date deliberately so that all laid-off federal workers will have worked ONE DAY in august (a Monday) and will have FULL HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.
No doubt there are other ‘bennies’ for having worked the first day of the month too.

Sarah Palin: Captain

Slightly off topic curiosity question - during Sean’s interview what was that background behind her. Looked like a river but had the same boat? going by several times. Kind of distracting. Nevertheless, go Sarah!
Well fine, she can announce on your birthday, on Alaska time, but by then it will be the third in my time zone, and my birthday.
We can both win.
Sarah has a studio attached to her home and the water behind her is actually a lake.
Probably Mitt Romney.
“3,188,620 Facebook fans cant be wrong! :)”
Well of course they are silly! There’s a handfull of people right here on FR that said she wasn’t so it must be true cuz they get REAL mad when you say otherwise ;)
I don’t made ; I just get real ! lol
Pinning your hopes and dreams , and those of your family , on Palin , or any other of the current crop of sadsack Publicrat candidates , is not only laughable , but cryable . America has been been bought and paid for , and almost everyone who is in the WH , Congress and Senate are on the payroll of various countries and New World Order bigwigs . Wake up ! There’s no going back to the Eisenhower years . You can keep dreaming , but this dream will never come true . We are owned - lovk , stock and barrel . Sarah can’t save ya ! Might as well vote for Obozo . He’ll put us out of our misery faster . Jesus may even come back earlier than planned!
The background was from her home studio which was intended to be Todds airplane hanger. That is lake Lucile you see. She also has the same view from her living room. In the winter time interviews you can see people riding snow machines and cars in the frozen lake.
Nancy French, the lady that helped Bristol write her book stayed in the apartment, office complex on the second floor.
Well, I guess I’ll just have to live with them being all pizzed off at me then! :)
I am SO hurt by them! NOT!
Gov Palin speaks off the cuff in plain but structurally perfect and logical sentences. This kind of extemporaneous mastery of logical rhetoric is something a Lincoln or a T. Roosevelt could do but that was at a time when people took the language seriously, and you can still see this kind of spoken high wire act in British Parliamentary debate, but I haven't personally seen it in an American politician ever (even Ronald Reagan hemmed and hawed his way through interviews).
This woman is remarkable.
I had not realized she was that far over 3 million!
Wait until she announces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So do it...probably for the 2nd time.
3,188,727 just now. I think being on Hannity has helped just tonight.
There will be a true explosion on FB WHEN she announces! :)
I look forward to that moment!
Wrong . Again .
I can hardly wait!!!!!
Getting truly excited now!
Thank you for the updated count!
Hannity is on her side ? Well , that settles it , she MUST be our savior ! lol
