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.
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.
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.
Ok, honestly, is someone from Kos or DU feeding you this nonsense? Really, you can tell us. We’ll let you leave with what little dignity you have left.
