"What’s up with this??"

It's called "Honor" and "Civility" and "Character" -- traits sadly lacking in most politicians, and, unfortunately, rare now here on FR...

Extending such to deserving opponents used to be the hallmark of decency. Now, even doing it for one' allies is questioned here.

Sarah Palin is a true, rare class act...

Those remaining on FR...???

it would have been a mistake to allow Palin on to sing praises to the mad hatter.

But it's OK when the elite sings the praises about a godless, same sex marriage, pro abortion candidate - I mean romney, not obama. Amazing what you prefer to hear - so much for rational. It's no wonder all that is left is evil to praise - on both sides of the fence.

Oh man. They should have let her replace that annoying Megyn Kelly or snooty Peggy Noonan. For the record, I didn’t even watch Fox coverage. Didn’t want to hear the idiotic commentary and see the Hurricane split screen. Watched on CSPAN uninterrupted. Will do the same tonight and form my own opinions.

Well, I can tell you here in Tampa, the insiders do not want anything to do with Sarah. They are holding her mostly responsible for making it difficult for Romney in his little primary (which was all but his). Don't fall for anything they are doing to her. She has them scared of what she may can do. If you are a moderate republican, this Tampa pony show is right up your alley. It is very sad to see what is going on to conservatives. Sarah is a classy lady and owes much to McCain for bringing her into the national stage. She admires his dedication to service. He wants her to speak at Tampa so maybe she's thanking him for doing that. The Gop-e wants her quite. I suspect it's due to where she's standing up about the change of rules and suggesting third party options for the future. She is right; the party machine gave the activists a blow/push back.

Thanks ConservativeMan55.
...because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight.

Seems you had no problem understand her. And thanks for sharing it.

I'm sure it has something to do w/it - there goes Sarah letting the cat out of the bag for conservatives to hear when Romney is trying to win them over while preventing them a voice last night and hearing from them in the future.

“He used her plain and simple. She needs to open her eyes and realize it and go on.”

Give the woman more credit. She knows that, and returns the favor. Her national reputation is originally due to her VP candidacy. Unfortunately McCain was the other half of the ticket.

Then WHY would they schedule her to do interviews on McCains speaking night in the first place?????

And in the second place, why is McPain even speaking? His speech delivery is not exactly uplifting. He's gonna put everyone in the convention hall to sleep.

I can’t blame them for getting a more relevant person to interview.

You mean one who will sing the praises of Romney? That's relevant to you?

The reason would Palin’s interview with Megyn Kelley last night. It was horrible.

Palin sounded lifeless, she began by saying good things about Ann Romney, but then veered into negative remarks about her children all being blessed and privileged. Juan Williams got kicked off for making similar remarks earlier, so when Palin did it they had to respond the same way.

Agreed. The only thing he did in the Navy was get the crap beaten out of him by Democrats for five years. My dad served with him...was a nice guy, but was protected by his diddy’s friends and fellow ring-knockers. Another retired Commander I know personally (was an 18 year old sailor at Kanohoe Bay on December 7, 1941) didn’t like McCain at all.

Palin consistently had approval in the 80s and reached 93%, Mitt Romney left office with 34%.

I wonder what Palin's would have been had she actually finished her one term in office.

I heard some of the talking heads say there is going to be a "surprise" speaker at the convention tomorrow.

Speculated on everyone from Joe Lieberman to Clint Eastwood.

Maybe it's Sarah? Maybe she's traveling? We can always hope!

I agree! I think somebody from Fox News hacked her Facebook account and changed some words in her post. The only message she was going to send John McCain was “Adios” after how his wing of the GOP made such rule changes that hurts the conservative wing of the Republican party.

I’m still looking at her Facebook page and clicking “refresh”. Sooner than later she’s going to see what changes were made.

I’m switching to C-Span tonight.

Oh she was not. I defy anybody to watch this and find anything but a supportive Republica, despite what mitt and you creeps have heaped on her. I guess mitt's undermining the McStain campaign in 2010 wasn't enough was it? You mitt operatives are still pulling this crap - trashing one of the most effective Conservatives out there. You must be worried; And you had better. Worry about 2016 because there's no way your liberal bag of crap will win if she decides to run - either as GOP or Tea Party.

If she had finished her term without getting on the veep ticket, her approvals would have remained at record breaking levels, extraordinary levels.

As it was, when she went national, she became the leader of conservatism in America, and came under the greatest media onslaught that we have ever seen, that forced the Alaskan liberals and democrats, to choose to oppose her, amazingly, after serving for almost 3 years and becoming such a bold, supposedly divisive conservative figure, she still left office with 56% approval, a figure that is considered superb and often makes for the “most popular Governor”.

Mitt left office with 34% approval.

“.his record as an American Senator has been extremely lacking.”

I’d say his record has been mixed. He has disappointed me a few times, but has been stellar at others. Overall I am glad he’s been in the Senate. He’s better than most of them.

And instead of just praising mitt and letting it go at that, they're still trashing Sarah. Sarah may forgive mitt, but I never will. And I'm not alone.

If Sarah says she was only going to sing McCain’s praises... then that...is IRRELEVANT. Soooooo irrelevant.

And yes, this convention is about Romney whether people are happy or not.

If it's relevant for Romney to have McCain speak at the convention, then why is it irrelevant to have someone remark about McCain's speech? Do you think whoever FOX has on in place of Palin is not going to mention McCain, his record, or his speech? All the FOX coverage so far has been glowing, effusive, over-the-top praise for the Republicans except for their token lib on the panel. This is about stopping a charismatic, powerful, conservative voice from holding the GOP's feet to the fire on conservative principles, nothing more.

My guess is that Sarah will always remember who gave her the opportunity to be on center stage.She is just paying dues over and over to the guy who gave her a chance whether she agrees with everything he says or not.
