Palin Keynotes Major Fundraiser
The Atlantic ^ | 03-16-09 | Marc Ambinder

Posted on 03/16/2009 10:50:30 AM PDT by euram

Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) will keynote the Republican campaign committees' top fundraiser in June, a sign of her enduring popularity with the Republican base and a signal that she has not foreclosed on the possibility of a run for president. The annual "Senate-House" dinner is scheduled for June 8 at the Washington Convention Center. A joint release calls Palin "a breath of fresh air from the business-as-usual crowd."

She is wasting her time. We only donate to individual campaigns and for conservative republican’s.
The day that the GOP shows some real leadership and backbone by expelling Spector..then I’ll reconsider.
I used to attend GOP State events, but they cut me off the A list when they found out I was really a conservative. They no longer wanted my money.

I would like for her to give a speech like this:

"While all of you are wrestling with a massive debt, banking failures, and stagnating economies, all of the banks in my state are well-capitalized and actually increased in profits. Our economy is growing and our state is in the black during the worst economic crisis in seventy years. Think about that next time you nominate a halfass like John McCain. Thank you."

She gives that speech, I'll give $1000 to her campaign.

So I guess that story about RNC fund raising being in the toilet is probably true.

I hope a tangenital party comes from Glenn Beck’s 9/12 movement. The Axis of Weasels the GOP has become is a den of rodents that Sarah should not go into. She needs to steer away from them unless they find their soul again....

WTF? Causing trouble again. Your obsession with Romney is sick. You of all people need some help. Nobody mentioned Romney on this thread except you. What is your problem? Why not talk about Saint Sarah???? Can’t think of anything nice to say? I can. I hope she does well in the speech...not very difficult. Now buzz off this thread.

ROTFLMAO. You are so right. If she wants to mention Romney on a Romney thread fine, but to begin mentioning him on every political thread is pretty sick.

Uh, what she is doing is important for getting new conservative blood into the Senate and the House. Say Pat Toomey is successful in upending Specter:

You'd want Pat to have plenty of cash on hand, wouldn't you?

You'd want Tom McClintock to have some extra dough for his reelect, wouldn't you?

Stop being reactionary. What Sarah is doing is smart, both for the Party and for her, and she's picking and choosing her fights well. I suspect that Fred might, repeat might be advising her on the urging of Mrs. Fred.

If Sarah is part of letting that happen, then more power to her. Sarah knows what she is doing.

Best,

Chris

Well, the GOP is showing some leadership by inviting Sarah to keynote the event. Right?

If she is planning a future in politics, she needs to remind and show the party that it needs her, not the other way around.

Gov. Palin is the only possible Presidential Candidate who can draw the largest crowds and energize them with the
Conservative message.

I see some of the whiners have showed up.
We have two parties and and only one can win.

Those who want to punish the GOP because there are a few
not onboard only facilitate the Democrats and their victory.

Some of the Third Party loons have alread done this and hope they are enjoying their Marxist Obama.

I would rather support the Republicans, especially Gov. Palin.

...they cut me off the A list when they found out I was really a conservative. They no longer wanted my money.

It's experiences like yours that lead me to believe that the GOP is basically hopeless. I've had my rounds with them also but was not at the level you were. I don't know what will be effective so that we can clean house and get some momentum going.

When you're working with RINOs though, you learn that they never will grow a pair and start standing on principle. The Dem attack machine must be dealt with and not with nerf bats either, time to stop playing nice-nice.

Nope. TeamRomney stalked Gov. Palin and her children.
FReepers and others have exposed Romney's bad behavior.

"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"


Similar to Romney's other scortched earth tactics:

Novak: "Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign"

Said Novak: "The rumors were traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson
."

"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

That’s where my moola is going. Sarah’s the best thing to happen to the Republican Party since Ronnie Reagan!
