...and on behalf of my family we thank you as well!
Rush couldn’t wait until he got back from vacation to comment on Sarah’s resignation announcement. Hurry home, Rush, we miss you!
Read her address to the country yesterday....She’s not staying in the kitchen.
I predict today July 5, 2009, that she will NOT interview with Bill O'Rielly or Kieth Oberman.
Good for you....not a elitist either are you.
Just what OATH did she break???? Are you saying that collecting a paycheck from your employer while you are putting your efforts in another direction is fine with you???? Is tahat the kiond of employee you are??? You need a lesson in ethics and should learn one from Sarah.
Then don’t let the door hit you, already.
You folks who think Sarah just pulled off one of the brightest moves in political history, need to realize that not everyone is convinced of it, even on our side of the isle.
RINOsh*t. A person who is merely not convinced would not refer to Sarah as a "pinhead woman."
As another poster said, “Sarah Palin is not QUITTING; she is just REPOSITIONING herself on the high ground for a new battle.”
Some sacred cows and their cowboys are getting upset right now...
No. I grew up in a large family. :)
Like you tagline. Do you think one day we will have a Hetero Pride Day/Month? ; ~ )
He’s not one to “wimp out”, remember, he was Dan Quayle’s press secretary.
Maybe it's because FR is attracting more people, and therefore it's starting to represent a real cross section of American Society.
After all, FR is one of the few sites where the users decide what article, or issue, to discuss.
Looks like a Johnny Paycheck moment.
I agree with you that a large part of the bashing seems to come from the Romeny camp. However, I’d like to let them know, I actually lived in MA when he was governor. He didn’t have the honor to step down as governor after he decided to run for president. He merely left the actually governing to Lt. Gov. Healey. She did as good as job as she was able given that she was fighting a Democratic state congress and wasn’t given too much authority to do it because she wasn’t even “acting governor”. Then he didn’t back her too much in her run for the Governorship, though she did his job for him while he was out campaigning.
Oh, and yeah, Romney was the one who gave MA that abortion of a health care reform, heavily supported by the Democratic state congress.
I supported Romeny when he ran for MA governor and had a lot of hope when he was elected. However, he was more concerned about being liked than being conservative. I saw no honor in the man.
(was it ok with all of you FR’ers that have been here longer than me that I “bashed” Romeny ... can someone please tell me where I get the form to sign to be able to express my opinion to a more senior member?)
Well, I disagree with him on that point.
Her term in office would be up at the end of 2010. That would give her two years to campaign non-stop for the Presidency. And she could have done it with a successful full term, having toughed out the attacks from the left, and showing she had the moxie to see the tough times through.
I know you folks are loyal to her. I respect that. I just realize that not everyone is this loyal to her, and a lot of people are going to see this differently than you do.
I was still defending Sarah as late as Friday morning, so don’t think I didn’t.
I hold a more skeptical reason, because Free Republic has become a real place for conservative views and ideals, some have chosen to infiltrate and dilute the message.
Similar to the state I'm in now.
Kumbaya, my Lord, Kumbaya ...
It's starting to get a little thick in here.
By 2016, it will be much harder to undue the Statist damage.
RINO’s are all the RNC cares about 8 of whom voted for CAP and TRADE.
Sarah secures congressional victories in ‘10 tipping power back to Republicans with more conservative representation - then takes the White House in 2012.
Anything else is suboptimal and unacceptible.
Staying on as governor of Alaska fielding endless, inappropriate ethics complaints doesn't do the state of Alaska any good and it doesn't make her in real terms any more qualified to be President.
If she wants to be President, she needs to start now. If she starts now, if certainly is in the best interest of Alaskans that she step down.
Why is the above strategy considered "outside the box"? It seems like common sense to me.
Then she communicates by twitter and face book? Are you kidding me? This is a statesman?
Did you also see last night her lawyers made known they were prepared and intended on filing papers against MSM who maligned either her or her family without having any proof? People and agencies were named. (apparently while in office she can't do that)
I guess your “quitting”. Get out of here you big dope!!!
Then it is obvious that reading comprehension was not your strong suit. Try reading what you write before you hit POST, especially if you think I have anything in common with the domestic enemy, Kos-kooks or DUmpster divers.
And to the post you decided to reply to....
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.
Actually, I think she would be a good voice in the Senate, and we need her Conservative vote there.
That being said, it’s a terrible place to run for the Presidency from. Senators don’t seem to do well in their runs for the Presidency, the most notable exception being John F. Kennedy. Even he was suspected of winning due to tampering with the vote.
If I am understanding what’s going on here correctly, part of the reason why Palin is stepping down, is that she will have more time to campaign for others and herself.
I doubt she would want to participate in another campaign for herself sooner than (for) 2012.
Ah, Bill Kristol called her move ‘crazy like a fox.’
Have I antagonized you in some way?
“Purged?” YES, purged....have the detractos WALK THE PLANK like Arlen Specter back to the DUmocrat party where they belong.
That's a different kind of news. News they want to hide from the public.
Palin obviously wants to rock the political world a bit, and this gives the weekend for a head of steam to build up.
For the sake of conservatism, please look at the bigger picture.
You do realize that she said she is leaving government for "the moment", right?
I’ve never quite got a good handle on him, to be honest, but I’ll be glad if you’re right—he has seemed somewhat squishy when I’ve seen him on Fox.
Indeed...they want to join the DUmocrats in voting, they must share their fate at the ballot box.
NYC here. I don’t have to skin a pigeon to hate elitism! LOL!
It's been my experience that 'tenure' means very little, as far as the content of a person's posts.
I have seen Newbies present very civil and logical debates on various subjects. I have seen long-term posters lose control and populate their prose with nothing but emotion.
It's really an 'individual' thing.
Amen. I think some of Sarah's previous (and hopefully future) supporters are shocked and disappointed at the moment. I hope that when/if we find that she intends to run for higher office they will return to her side.
NO just saying it made sense...what you were saying support Palin and coming from a large family. Wasn’t being sarc.
A person’s roots/experiences does make a difference in their belief system.
You must have meant to reply to #32, rather than #33 and hit my post by mistake?
I confess ... I too am guilty of drawing a comparison between Romney and a slick used-car salesman. But, in all fairness to Sarah Palin, I came to that conclusion well before her time on the scene. I made that opinion public while supporting Duncan Hunter during the RNC primary.
Whew! I agree. :)
If not, I’ll have my own! :-D
