Sarah Palin in Private West Palm Beach Visit Today (On Hannity Tonight)
PALM BEACH POST ^ | October 6; 2010 | Jose Lambiet

Posted on 10/06/2010 3:58:03 PM PDT by onyx

Former vice-presidential hopeful and Alaska governor Sarah Palin is scheduled to spend today in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach as she fulfills a promise she made to local Internet entrepreneur Chris Ruddy after the two hit it off at the Kentucky Derby in May.

Although Ruddy didn’t comment, several sources are telling me the comely Conservative pol, an inspiration for many members of the Tea Party, is expected at the Village Boulevard offices of Newsmax.com, Ruddy’s West Palm-based political website.

There, Palin is scheduled to be interviewed by GOP pundit Michael Reagan, former Prez Ronald Reagan’s son, during the taping of a webcast to be aired on Newsmax.com next week.

Palin is starting to create a buzz about her new book, America By Heart, due out next month.

Tonight, Newsmax bigs are hosting Palin at a private dinner at The Breakers. Two dozen Conservative heavy-hitters are flying in for the occasion. The guest list is being kept hush-hush.

No public appearance by Palin has been scheduled.

I'll say 'Yes' just because I want them there. ;)

This will get them talking. Ruddy, Michael Reagan, Rush, two dozen conservative honchos flying in (talk show hosts or politicos?), private dinner, sounds like a planning session to me. Are they talking 2010 or 2012? Sounds like the godmother of the conservatives has called a meeting of the capos.

I'd say that you can bet on it. There's no way that Rush would be left off this particular guest list. Heck, he'd probably crash the party if he was. LOL

The dinner at the Breakers, no less, is being thrown for Sarah! I find it all very exciting and hope we hear just a little more about it, but not too much to give the nasty lamestream too much information.

Anyone believes she is NOT running for President?
She has at least a dozen speaking events this month.
Several more after the election.
Her 2nd book is coming out next month.
Then her documentary series on TLC.
All this while (hopefully) she'll be basking in the victories of Republican candidates she endorsed.

Sarah will OWN the holiday season. Everybody will be at the edge of their seats, waiting to see when she will announce. All that'll be missing is some short guy blowing a long horn and unraveling a scroll proclaiming Palin's announcement.

Well, that’s a thought, he might be invited, but if it’s for West, why the secrecy and the “two dozen Conservative heavy-hitters” flying in for the occasion? It sounds to me like those people are interested in meeting Sarah Palin.

Sarah was the speaker at a "non-political" meeting at First Baptist Church in Houston Monday.

The meeting was about handling "unplanned, surprise pregnancies."

My guess is that Palin will announce on February 6, 2011 (the 100th anniversary of President Reagan's birth) at the Reagan Library.

I posted a thread very late last night from the Houston Chronicle and the not conservater writer even had to admit that she had come along way in her speaking --- she spoke 50 minutes without notes (or a teleprompter of course) and she held her audience's attention the entire time.

He went onto say:"[Sarah]A more polished public speaker than she was on the campaign trail two years ago, her trademark Minnesota-sounding accent less pronounced, Palin held her audience rapt as she told of discovering she was pregnant at age 43 — "I was no spring chicken" — and then finding out 12 weeks later that her son had Down syndrome.

Oh yeah. I think all indications say that she's running and the lamestream has thought the same along along, which is the reasons they've never let up on her: Hillary is supposed to be the first woman president, NOT Sarah.

I disagree because that's the day of the Super Bowl.

But Palin is someone who can pull it off....

CNN mentioned it as an anti-abortion event...which I'm sure it was, but they didn't mention it was non-political and sponsored by a Baptist church!

No big deal...'cept in CNN's intent.

I think the announcement will be in March or later. If Todd doesn’t race in the Iron Dog next year (Feb.’11) then we know someting is up. Sarah wouldn’t announce before the race. Once Sarah commits its a whole new ball game.

I didn't realize that the Super Bowl was that day, I assume the celebration of the Reagan anniversary will be the following week (President Reagan postponed the parties for his second inauguration because the Super Bowl was on January 20, 1968) and she will do it then. Look for Rush and Michael Reagan to introduce her.

Me too. But if the heavy hitters feel as we do, if with all their experience that can so lead to small expectations they find themselves hopeful and believing in the depth of Sarah's dedication to elevate our culture with returning to our foundations and 'doing the right thing no matter what the consequence...well....it will be one of the most productive and fun and hopeful and joyous dinners ever.

I admit it....I would LOVE to know every detail about this dinner (The Breakers is so beautiful!!), even if it is just a 'get to know you' kinda thing. I doubt anyone knows, for certain, Sarah's goals right now other than destroying the ruinous congress that sits in DC. and rebuilding it with people who love our nation.

Maybe, or maybe the Hannity segment was taped earlier today - at least that’s my guess. I think this dinner will go later into the night.

Palin mixes politics, motherhood at Houston fundraiser

"I won't get too political tonight, but I just can't help it sometimes," a smiling Sarah Palin told a Houston audience Tuesday night, shortly before lighting into what she called "the mother of all unfunded mandates called Obamacare" and "the most pro-abortion president ever to occupy the White House."

Speaking for nearly 50 minutes to an audience of approximately 1,000 people at Houston's First Baptist Church, Palin also shared what she called "a little bit of my testimony" about being the mother of a child born with Down syndrome.

She also spoke about her daughter Bristol's experience as a single mother at 17.

The event was a fundraiser for Austin-based Heroic Media, a nonprofit advertising group that develops mass-media campaigns aimed at persuading women not to have abortions. The group was founded in 2004 by retired businessman Brian Follett, who originally named it after St. Gerard Majella, patron saint of pregnant women.

There's going to be some sort of BIG celebration either at the Library or his hometown, she will be at the one where Rush and Michael are. I was not aware that the Super Bowl was that day, so I assume the major events will be the week after.

Wouldn't it be sweet if she announced during halftime, on mid-field? Or even on an another network during halftime?

But yeah, she'll probably do it on Thur or Fri of that week so the SB stuff can die down.

I love her. Reminds me of President Bush breaking a vacation to fly to DC to sign the republican formed to request the court reconsider the plight of Teri Schiavo. I loved him for that and I will always admire it. It had to fly during the night in order to sign it pronto as time was getting so short for Teri's chance at justice.

Sarah spoke there because of an invite that provided her a forum to speak her deep held belief in the sanctity of life. No pay, no press, just love in her heart.

Nope, me neither, and Sarah also has TV commitments which carry into the new year. Her series on Alaska is 8 weeks with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, likely filled with other shows, so that brings her 8 segment series well in 2011.

Then she has her million dollar contract with Fox News to consider, so she can afford to wait to announce until she’s ready and has everything in place on the ground. Let her see who’s declared...lol. She doesn’t need or want a huge campaign filled with “know it all advisors”, so all she wants and needs are grassroot volunteers and I’m will to wager she won’t fall short on “us.”.

Sarah said on Greta one nite not to long ago if/when she announces it would be in May or June.

The thing is the pressure from us will force a statement one way or the other. I can’t wait until June for a yes or a no. I’m sure I’m not alone in my sentiment.

She said it would be the ideal situation, not what she would do.

If it was up to Sarah she wouldn’t declare until Reagan did in the fall before the primary vote. But that was 1980 and this is the 21st century.

Sarah will get with the program and not leave the playing field to the other competitors for too long. She can’t afford to in this Internet age.

Perhaps, but they will just drop out or others won't announce until they see if Sarah will run. Wonder who the RINO will be that the GOP establishment will anoint of their choice.

True. Sarah still has a lot of work to do and She needs the time in the public to do it.

Now back to business...

It seems that as SP has grown more comfortable, she has become more sassy and condescending when discussing King Obama. Her body language and gestures suggest contempt for the person. IMO, it will not be what she says, but how she says it that eventually drives Obie over the edge.

I have a very good source in Iowa and others are already scurrying around trying to sew-up elected officials to ‘sponsor’ their campaigns. Sarah doesn’t have ‘feelers’ on the ground yet. She’s in no hurry, but everyone thinks she’s in the running, so whenever she announces she will have a little ground to make up, but nothing she can’t handle.

Sarah has the best political instincts of any politician. She’ll time her announcment perfectly.

Mitt Romney. That's why we don't see some of the candidates running on "repeal obamacare!" Those candidates are likely being managed by the establishment backers of Romney. His Romneycare is indefensible against obamacare.
