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?

Sarah Palin is finished politically, this was a dumb move as I have told ...

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...

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.

I think this gives a good indication of what she might be up to and that she is seriously considering a 2012 run:

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.

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 Palin’s 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.

She’s 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 doesn’t fit the mold THEY envision. But it sure doesn’t make what she’s doing wrong :)

Totally agree.
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.

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 she’d 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 wasn’t 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.

Yes, that is it, she is running away. Hiding from her attackers, packing it in and heading to the house.

Hence the already booked speaking engagements.

Brilliant that, hiding in plain sight...

I agree 1,000%! How dare our lovely Sarah not fulfill her term as governor just to run for president?

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!

The rules are starting to matter less and less in politics.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
