The beauty of the whole move is the options it creates.

For he supporters it creates possibilities heretofore unknown.

For her detractors, it creates a sense of dread and the possibility of being wrong.

Again...

Nor do I think the RINO “quitter” label will stick. ... 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.

I think that is pretty much right. Most people, especially Palin supporters, will soon will forget about the resignation. Her detractors will find fault with her no matter what she does, so I discount their criticism.

If when the time comes she does announce for 2012, I see the grassroots conservative movement hugely energized to get her elected. Make no mistake: that is why she is feared.

Exactly who knows at this point. I have mixed emotions about Palin. Yes, she is wonderful, Presidential material I am not convinced yet. (Although without a doubt she could do a much better job than Bozo in there now). I thought today, it would be tough to be a half way good mother governor, mother and get prepared for a Presidential campaign. Something would have to go. Resigning as gov would give her so much flexibility in travel and speaking engagements. And it would allow her to really make some money to pay all of these legal fees. Gee, I really hate Socialists liberal. Are there any other kinds of liberal however

Rush needs to read her speech again. She told us exactly why she resigned. What is ahead for her in the future, The Lord knows she is being led of Him. I do not think Sarah Palin knows yet.

I think this gives a good indication of what she might be up to and that she is seriously considering a 2012 run:
Sarah Palin to campaign around America after surprise resignation as Alaska governor

{link in original post - Sarah Palin to campaign around America after surprise resignation as Alaska governor}


Yet again, better news and analysis of American politics for the UK Daily Telegraph.

They seem to be the present best source for reasonable political MSM news at this time...:^)

For those who couldn’t get the link to work, Rush basically stated he’s still not sure what all this means (with regard to Palin).

He says he hasn’t heard her say what she plans to do. He thinks she operates outside the box, somewhat like he does, and he doesn’t think this precludes her from pursuing public office in the future if she wants to.

He states that anyone who says otherwise right now is either a beltway pundit who is afraid of her, or is someone trying to make a name for themselves.

This seems to be faithful to as favorable a view of Palin as it could be under the circumstances.

I have state I think she made a big mistake, so he obviously disagrees with me considerably on this issue.

It’s just impossible to stomach the stupidity on this site anymore. After all these years of posting here, I think it’s time to find another place.

What kind of dopes cannot see that this pinhead woman, who when speaking off the cuff makes George Bush sound brilliant, just abandoned a post she was SWORN to fill, and that she did so for the flimsiest of reasons. AT BEST, she dumped Alaska on her Lt. Gov. because she wants to make money on a book and feel out her chances for national office. That’s the height of irresponsibility and self-centeredness — SHE HAD AN OATH TO UPHOLD.

Conservatives who shrug and say so what to that kind of irresponsibility are not conservatives I recognize. Can anyone imagine Ronald Reagan breaking a solemn oath?

Sarih Palin has never had a shot at the WH. She’s much too unqualified and serious people can see it whenever she opens her mouth without a script. But now it seems she’s about to lead the “true believers” at FR and other outposts of the right further into the wilderness, too, and completely marginalize conservative thought at a time when Obama is socializing the nation.

Great work Sarah.

He also said there is no way she can raise money, give speeches or run for office from Alaska. In other words, this is exactly what she needed to do :)

The names of the detractors carrying the water for the DNC media while calling themselves "conservative" or "republican" need to be remembered for when the time comes and she does announce, they can be scorned, ridiculed and eventually purged.

You’re right ... go back to your brothers and sisters at Kos and DU and brag about how you “really took it to those neo-cons”. Oh wow, you’ve really debated us into the ground.

What you so willingly ignore (standard for Kos) is that part of the reason she resigned is because she didn’t feel she could continue effectively governing Alaska because of all of the bogus ethics complaints. As well as the money that is being spent to defend against them.

I’m really sensing that your main frustration is that Palin refuses to continue being a target for dopes like you. But, of course, with your type, they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t. I’d be willing to be that you’ve been posting somewhere else saying that Palin is a distraction to the government of Alaska and should step down for the good of the state. Come on ... admit it.

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.

Perhaps.

Except that Sarah Palin only "quit" in the way that a young man might "quit" his job in the private sector to enlist in the Marines after 9/11, or after Pearl Harbor.

She is just taking the fight to a different arena -- where she can be MORE effective, as she said in her speech.

BO only logged less than 200 hours as Senator, voting present or party line - then to counter her exec. experience during the campaign, BOASTED about how much time he spent building his campaign!

I wonder how the State-run Media would have reacted if she said she'd now become a full-time "community organizer"???
