What is Palin doing and why is she letting us down

Posted on 09/12/2011 6:26:10 PM PDT by se_ohio_young_conservative

I have a strong supporter off Governor Palin since 2009. and I have been attacked for that at times here on FR.

It feels like she is leaving us hanging. Those of us who donated money and support to her over the last few years have a right to know where is this going. I used to be angry with the media, but now im somewhat unsure with her as well because she is not fighting back on their side of the 50. She hasn't been on tv debating liberals and getting in the mix. Why isn't she trying to change the unfair media image.

I can't understand why she would let the support she has slip between her fingers. I can't understand why she is not trying to gain more support.

Many folks got FAR too emotionally invested in her.

Her first book made it pretty clear she isn’t going to run.

She's waiting to see if Perry can hold the base, whether Bachman can gather support.

If Perry or Bachman can win, I don't think she'll run. If she sees them destroyed, she'll step in.

We should get a good idea on Gretta tonight, but yes she is running, and she never said anything in her first book about not running

haven’t you heard from the palin fans, this is her oh so fabulous strategy—to confuse the media, YOU and the declared field of candidates.

Really? I’ve read it twice, and my impression is exactly the opposite.

I’m glad she’s waiting this out. Let her frustrate the American Society of High Priests. They’ve identified the sinner, she just won’t go up against the city wall to get stoned. And that is fine by me. If the others discombobulate by late October and she declares then, I’ll be nothing else but thrilled. She has to declare by Oct. 31 to be in the NH primaries.

Her first book made it pretty clear she isn’t going to run.

I've read both of Sarah's books and didn't get that impression in either one.

My opinion ... Sarah is wisely staying above the conventional fray, (like the BS way she's been treated by Perry and others) while strongly supporting Tea Party events and substantially mingling with ordinary people.

She is not running. She is just cashing in on her fame. I don’t think she is a bad person. Just don’t pin your hopes to her or any politician for that matter.

Sitting here watching the debate, I have to say these folks have skin in the game. She is on the sideline doing shallow things like tweeting. It doesn’t matter now if she decides to run or not. Yawn.

She will be in the race within 18 days, hang tough keep the faith!

She has to announce at the right time, the MSM/Rep push for Perry has to cool off as it is right now. They pushed MB for a while now it`s Perry.

Perry is clearly a snake oil salesman, total loser

SARAH PALIN 2012 OR BUST

Sarah has the perfect opportunity at 10 pm on Gretta, moments from now, what will she have to say about the shots for young girls? This will be very telling, trust me

Govenor Palin has made it very clear that she will let her intentions known by the end of September and we are not there yet. Don’t be mislead by the Lying Stream Media to have you be disheartened. That is their intention.

She is a human being. She was slaughtered by the media as a VP candidate, and has been vilified by the left ever since. The Republican Party has hardly lifted a finger to help her out either. I think she is smart and brave and a true patriot. However, I can cut her some slack if she is not anxious to be ripped apart by the jerks in the media again, and hung out to dry by the jerks in the Republican Party again.

Maybe she is just waiting for the counter-putsch, when the marxists overexpose their flank. This whole Republican-Democrat thing has become quite the charade anyway.

Can you cite a passage that hints that she is not interested in running? I also read Going Rogue, and it indicates no such thing. Bob

Isn’t “You won’t be able to miss it” clear enough about her intentions to run. Don’t get discouraged. The starting QB has not yet taken the field, and the team is down 3-0. Too much is being made of this early stuff. Politics is not for the feint of heart. Bob

She just doesn’t want to run, but is waiting until a strong candidate emerges. I think she will announce she is supporting Perry before the end of the month.

“Sarah is wisely staying above the conventional fray,”

Staying “above the fray”? What a shame.

We need a fighter who is not afraid of the “fray,” who will get in the fight. Maybe Sarah is not that person.

If Sarah Palin had run a conventional campaign and declared two years before the election, the GOP ruling class would have taken her out by now, because to them DC is an exclusive country club that doesn't cotton to outsiders.

The last thing they want is somebody coming in and rocking them right out of their cushy little boats.

In order to win the nomination, she has to outwit and outmaneuver them.

She'll declare when the time is right, and not before.

Are you vying for a chance to be her political campaign advisor? Since Reagan didn’t jump into the race until November 13th, 1979 would you have made the same criticism because he didn’t play by your rules?

You almost sound like a concern troll to me, but maybe you could be the first disappointment troll!

Sarah Palin is not leaving us hanging.

She is a brilliant strategist and answers only to her own instincts as to how she can best serve the people.

Do not lose faith in her or her strategy.

She knows America is in grave danger and she is picking her way through this moment very carefully because she knows the power and cunning of her enemies.

Do not break and run.

Hold fast and remain patient.

Her enemies are trying to choose the time and place of her battles. The wise general always chooses when and where it is best to engage the enemy.

I don’t think she ever seriously intended to run this time. It’s like 2008 with the Fred Thompson hysteria. Fred was holding a place in the race for McCain. I believe Palin was simply holding the place in line for Perry. As an extra added bonus she got plenty of media coverage to promote new books, more appearences, etc.

Agree. All just speculation at this point.

But, with statements like this:

“If Sarah Palin had run a conventional campaign and declared two years before the election, the GOP ruling class would have taken her out by now...”

Is this not a tacit admission that Palin can’t take the heat and criticism? That she won’t be able to weather the inevitable storm aimed at a candidate for POTUS? Hasn’t “taking the heat” been something of a problem for her in the past? Whether you see or believe it yourself, it is a very real and obvious problem for many out there who may share her ideals but worry about her stick-to-it-ivism.

That may be true, but I remember a 30 minute Infomercial by Reagan in the Summer of 1979 where Reagan promised to eliminate the Dept of Energy and Dept of Education and to make Puerto Rico a state.

Palin is targeted like no other. Sure, they snipe at Perry or Bachmann. But for Palin, it’s a whole different ball game.

This is why her path must be unconventional, in my opinion.

As for your criticism, think of it this way: if she announces in the next few weeks, it will demonstrate the exact opposite of what you suggest.

Well those of us who support her have taken a lot of ridicule. This whole situation doesn’t even make any sense. How did the media get away with trashing a person whom they had very little trash to use against her in the first place. Why did so many Americans go along with it ? Why is she not out there atleast trying to correct to record.

I think she needs to run. I think we (her supporters) have provided her with the financial ability to run. How does she correct the record if she never runs ? Even if she never wins, atleast she would prove the idiots wrong on her ability to take them on and hold her own.

It would eat away at me if so many people in the country thought I was ignorant because of FALSE media attacks. I would fight back day and night against that because it is a personal attack and it was all along. ATLEAST she should be out there fighting that
