Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh Responds To Palin's Resignation
Posted on 07/05/2009 12:16:33 PM PDT by MaestroLC
Breaking his silence regarding the resignation of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, talk titan Rush Limbaugh tells the Radio Equalizer that rumblings about her personal and political future are "all speculation".
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
Guess we couldn’t wait a week to hear what he thought. Hopefully Mark Davis isn’t on Monday!
My Flash player has been on the fritz for months, and so I can’t view You Tube videos.
Do you know if there’s a transcript anywhere?
Good catch - thanks for posting link.
Guess this kills the PAlin/RUsh new party talk, eh?
just tried and got: An error occurred, please try again later.
I predict today July 5, 2009, that the first interview she will be giving will be with Rush.
Yep! Good comments....
Thanks for the post!
Ooops, hold on, sorry I have been listening to the FreeRepublic “political experts” again.
No one knows what this means, and speaking like she is dead in the water politically is at best premature, and for some, wishful thinking...
No one knows what this means, and it may indeed be the dumbest political move in history.
Or the most brilliant...
I think that Gov Palin is pregnant again and has had enough of the MSM.
Rush was on his radio show last Friday, before Gov. Palin’s press conference.
He is on vacation next week, and won’t be back until Monday, July 13th.
maybe Obama wants to appoint her as energy kzar or some such.
I predict today July 5, 2009, that the
first 3x10*8'th interview she will be giving will be with Rush Couric.
Invisib1ehand said it first, fwiw. ;)
lolol you must have been watching cnn, some dude anchor said that friday.
Yeah . Mark Davis , what a dud. His first reaction to the Palin news was to pee himself and push the huge scandal response . Another feckless dope who proves the pavlov position.
I agree. Palin demonstrated a frightful degree of irresponsibility by abandoning her post just because it got a little hot in the kitchen. How will she answer those who charge that she may abandon her post again if she ever occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., where the kitchen is notoriously hotter?
Palin is finished.
Sarah Palin should write a book, do the book tour, make some money and then run in 2016.
There is a great website that keeps on top of this:
I just posted this on another thread but thought it fit here as well :))
Things have completely changed and I can feel the energy and excitement surrounding Palins announcement. She has totally thrown off the talking heads and it is wigging them out. I, for one, trust her implicitly and am REALLY looking forward to this thing unfolding.
Shes about to hand the libtards a big fat surprise in the next 16 months or so, when she gets behind solid conservatives, draws huge crowds and gets them elected. Then embarks on her own campaign for POTUS in 12.
The people on our side that are talking negatively about her either really want someone else to be the front runner (Romney) or they are SUCH pathetic creatures of habit that if someone so much as steps off the trail they throw a fit because it doesnt fit the mold THEY envision. But it sure doesnt make what shes doing wrong :)
Thanks, It came up immediately.

No one knows at this point.
A year is an eternity in politics.
What she did seemed odd to me; but sometimes the best and most creative people just don’t follow the rules.
NOpe Greta. She has made no secret, she keeps a bag packed, just in case she has an excuss to go back to Alaska. She jumped all over the other FOX commentator the other day...little like a mama bear.
As per Rush, Larry is being "inside the beltway formulaic".
No, it has nothing to do with drugs ;-)
Re-reading your post I see you may be saying she just pulled off a “brilliant” move. If so I retract my agreement.
Palin is finished. Her erratic, rambling resignation speech will be the last we’ll ever hear of her, except in the “true believer” quarters where she walks on water.
The American people are not enamored of quitters. And when a quitter tries to sweet talk the American people with nonsense and fluff and deny that she actually is a quitter, it’s an insult to their intelligence.
Giving the Lt. Gov more legs to prove himself for a run when her term expired is a bankable strategy. It would not have served the people of Alaska for her to remain in the office (even if for only the remainder of one term) and eventually step down later for a 2012 run. If shed been elected for a second term as Governor, the LIEberal media would still be using their poor attempt to discredit her by abandoning her office. Nor do I think the RINO “quitter” label will stick.
Of course they will use the experience angle once again since it only matters if a Republican is running. Experience certainly wasnt a factor with sHillary or DUh-bama.
Sarah Palin is stepping down from Alaskan Governor to move on to a higher calling, thus driving the LIEberal (and RINO) media to be twisted in knots still trying to figure out a playbook to deal with it.
Hence the already booked speaking engagements.
Brilliant that, hiding in plain sight...
Like you, I reject a politician who cuts short his first term. Why it reminds me of a organizational thug elected as a senator and announces 100 days later he is running for president. He rarely was in DC for votes and later chose to not fulfill his first term.
Hmmmm, who was that masked man?
Go Sarah...and take down that commie bastard!
To quote Nelson from the Simpsons:
HAAAA ha. You’re wrong.
You might be right. I remember her interview with Rush. She was delighted to talk with him. Besides, he has the ratings clout.
To support my thesis I give you the following:
A partial term senator and community organizer with the middle name “Hussein”.
Any one who thinks we are stuck in the politics of old is nuts...
The same thing happened to my wife’s laptop, We installed and use Google Chrome and can now watch youtube.
I’ve seen this “hot in the kitchen” post so many times that all of you very well may be the same poster with different screen names.
I concur, spacejunkie. In the next 16 months the nation will see how important her role in restoring a gubernatorial majority and congressional voice to the Republicans—and coalescing the nation around a new, small government, freedom-loving coalition. That she handed the Alaska governship on to her trusted lieutenant in order to lead the nation’s righting of its political ship will be seen as almost a natural imperative, a hero’s call, that she simply answered. Then the country’s going to be restless for 2012 to arrive so they can vote her in in Obama’s stead.
WHY? Are you saying Obama is unbeatable so we should just concede 2012?
A cat with a key to the pet store cage...
I completely agree. I don’t understand the propensity for some people (on this forum of all places) to parrot the ones who hate Sarah Palin the most, those very enemies of conservatism itself, as they indulge their greatest desire and fantasy : that Sarah Palin has been removed from their opposition. Watch and wait my FRiends. Patience. It’s very probable there’s more to this tale than has been told.
Safe harbor always has fair wind...
Indeed....and, furthermore, I think we can almost ALL agree that Palin does NOT hold back on what she thinks or feels (I absolutely love that quality). If she remained as gov of AK, I believe she would naturally refrain from speaking her mind. Now that she is completely untethered from people that want to take her down we are going to hear her speak the truth about hussein and his ilk over and over and over.
I cannot wait. She is practically the only person in R leadership with big ones...that clank!
One thing Sarah is not, is a quitter. She is giving herself and Lord willing America a new job description. Call it restructuring, shuffling but quitter no way. Her latest move just gave the Dems and Rinos something new to dish her about. I talked to folks about this yesterday and there is no abandonment of Sarah happening. Those talking up all the negative fodder never cared for her in the first place.
Is it your browser? Perhaps try IE or Firefox instead.
Very intersting. Rush would always chide Clinton and Obama for making news after 3:00 just after his show went off the air. This time Sarah made news. I agree that it would really be almost impossible to run for president from Alaska. That legislature has a cow everytime she goes out of state so can imagine if she ran for president while being governor. If she said I will not run fro re-election you know that moveon.org type democrats up there would still make these dopey “ethical” accusations causing the Alaska taxpayers to spend even more money. So she really is doing whats probably best for Alaska.
