Good morning, everyone. Hope your holiday went well. Will the Palin obsession be on display.

While I hope that there is more discussion of the June 30 milestone with US troops in Iraq, even Palin Derangement Syndrome would be a welcome diversion from Michael Jackson's latest career move.

Probably more on the draw down in Iraq

A dynamic that I have not heard discussed is the possible willingness of the locals to give up more insurgents since they will now be perceived as working with the Iraqi security forces and no longer with the US military. Over here symbolism and appearances are important especially as it relates to associating with Americans.

I’m guessing that since the pull back from the cities in Iraq by U.S. forces is a good news story...the media will either ignore it completely or give it a passing glance.

Just like they did with the surge and it’s success.

Today will be all about PDS.

Happy Fourth of July weekend to all Freepers.

Morning AB and thanks once again for the thread.

Boehner should be interesting. He has been a stalwart conservative on our side, especially lately.

With the holiday weekend, I wonder if the shows were taped BEFORE Sarah’s announcement? If so, little if any Sarah comments.

Keep your eyes open, bean_counter. Biden has telegraphed that, if there is an uptick in violence in the country, we will have to rethink our presence in the country.

This signal to al-Qaeda and Iran could not be more clear.

The “news” has become nothing about imparting information, and all about speculating about things they can’t actually know anything about.

Question for the MSM and various other Palin haters who claim Gov Palin is leaving Alaska high and dry in their time of greatest need...

If Sarah Palin is as stupid and incompetent as you portray her, isn't Alaska better off if she leaves? So, what's your problem, eh?

Very possible I am not sure.

Either way Sarah will be the topic and all the old school rinos and supposed conservatives who think it's just the end of the world that she quit 14 months 7 days 5 hours 32 minutes and 16 seconds before the end of her term.

I say the hell with them all.

Sarah did the reputable,ethical thing by resigning IMHO.

Most Senators, Governors and House Reps. routinely run for other offices while holding another. What happens to the office they hold while they run? It generally goes down the tubes.

Sarah is not willing to do that to her home state of Alaska which she loves and respects. I say lets respect her decision.

That was my thought as well. I remember when W would not take his pay as governor when he was campaigning for President. How many others have done that?

Agree 100% - Sarah's gone rogue and I love it!

I'll be listening for comments of "Quitting". IIRC, a certain Illinois senator announced his run for President after "serving" ~ 100 days and rarely spent any time in DC. He chose to quit serving as a senator yet no media called him on it as they are doing to Sarah.

Didn't mean to look like I was coming at you. Knew what you were getting at.

My point is that the media is so knee jerk in their reaction to this, they contradict the perception they attempted to make to this point.

Morning to you and all Freepers.

Wimbledon tennis versus same old, same old? I’ll catch FNS later today and read the insightful comments here for now.

It is disheartening to keep fighting over cap & trade or national health care when the real issue is freedom, liberty and our market economy all under attack by statists who are after power and money. It makes one wonder what part of “life, liberty and property” the Democrats don’t understand?

If even part of Trends Research is true, we’re in for a rough ride.

Rove, the huckster and Lt Gove Sean Parnell discussing Sarah right now on FNC.

Talking her move is risky business.

Can’t someone have an opinion about Palin’s resignation that is different from yours or anybody else’s? Without calling him names.

There is room for debate about whether she did the right thing or the wrong thing politically. For her personally she obviously did the right thing in my opinion but politically? I don’t know.

Only time will tell but bashing everyone who dares to question your opinion is not a wise thing if you ask me.

-- The "news" has become nothing about imparting information ... --

Heh. It's always been so. News publication was never about "informing." It's about manipulation and "conforming." So-called "news" is nothing but a thinly-disguised propaganda effort to form public opinion, not inform public debate.

Granted, there are tidbits of information in the reporting, but never complete information, and nearly always in a wrapper of misdirection and erroneous conclusion.

It is virtually impossible to run for President with Alaska as one’s base of operations.

Therefore, Governor Palin will:

Move to Wisconsin.

Write books.

Give speeches.

Travel the country helping get conservatives elected (build alliances).

Travel internationally and meet with foreign dignitaries.

Maybe do some TV commentary.

Become President Of The United States.

Exactly,and we must never forget the media will never stop coming after Sarah.

Here's some reasons I listed yesterday why Sarah may have decided to leave early. How many jobs can she fulfill at once without letting many important things go?

1. Sarah has a new baby with downs syndrome,other needy children and one child a 17 years old with a baby of her own who is being savaged as much by the press as she is. Being a mom to her family is at least a part time job if not full time.

2.She just got a rumored book deal in the 7 figure range or even higher so she has a book to write.

3. She as a pac and her fund raising duties alone will be mammoth.

Remember zero has had about a year now to raise money and raised almost a billion bucks during his campaign and now has the entire U.S. Treasury at his disposal and he will and already has used every dime he can to buy votes with!! How the hell is any candidate on our side supposed to counter that kind of fund raising. It is a mammoth job!

4. She will now be free to give speeches and finally make the money she deserves. This clears her from any supposed impropriety that almost every other elected official with an "r" behind their name has.

Are they taking govt. money while campaigning or doing personal business. She won't have that taint for some time. Giving speeches and helping others run for office is also a major job which she now will make time for.

If anything I support Sarah Palin more now than before and IMHO she deserves all of our unconditional support.

It's Palin v. Establishment. And there is no doubt that the GOP is heavily invested in the Establishment. Enough of the old "Frick vs. Frack" show!

I think the $2 million cost to Alaska and another $500,000 to Palin to fight 18 fake ethics complaints had something to do with her resigning. This frees her up to promote her book and campaign for Republicans this coming year.

The Democrats, and Maureen Dowd, are aghast over loosing their target for their hatred. I won’t be surprised if Sarah becomes much more aggressive against both the media and the Democrats (especially zero) from now on.

I am ten times more jazzed about this move of hers than I was when McCain named her as running mate. She has improved her chances of reaching her potential, whatever that may be, and wherever circumstances and her choices take her. I detest McCain.

Clearly, she's a "political animal," and I sure don't sense any intention to retreat to home-base to defend only family.

I say the hell with them all.

During her exit speech, she said she polled her family about 'the future'.

According to her, she would reveal more about 'the future' later, but the votes were several 'yeses' and one 'hell yeah'.

I betcha that 'hell yeah' was from Todd and it was in regard to her seeking higher office after the 2010 elections.
