Correction: Sarah Palin put her appearance at a Tea Party of America rally in Indianola, Iowa, on hold but did not cancel it, as incorrectly reported in an earlier version of this post.
WSJ, trying to start trouble?
Yup. Perfect assessment.
If Perry asked, him..made an appeak, and promised Christie unlimited access to him, input on issues, AND designated areas of responsibility ( Homeland Security?) I think he'd say yes..
It would be an awesome ticket...
A lot of it IS her fault though.
With her, it's one drama event after the next after the next. Today, her "big announcement" is frought with "lying" and confusion.
Frontal-lobe types of voters/supporters tend to get tired of the never ending bulls***
Wow. Who’da thunk we’d seen a Joni Mitchell song quoted at length around here?
They had a scoop and went with it. Now the scoop has been revised. Big deal.
The real question is what the heck is going on with Sarah? “On hold”? What does that mean?
1)So, how would you vote?
2)The conclusions you draw regards how the American people seem to think and vote are drawn from, where again?
3)It seems how the Americvan people thought and voted in the last election was, shall we say, totally unexpected?
Out of fairness, the headline should probably be changed. The WSJ has apparently changed its tune and said that the event is on hold, not cancelled.
Never fall in love with a politician. They will break your heart every time.
Shushannah has the truth...
I like her a lot yet I hope that she does not run and I am predicting right here that she will not run.
I hear works well with Unemployment statistics.
She always said she will run if there is no GOP candidate who suits her values. I think she has found that in Rick Perry and any announcement will be her endorsement of Perry.
Good lord...what the hell is going on?
I don’t get it
Yep....it was just put on hold because the organizers needed to fix somethings they did wrong......
If she could support McLame she can fully support Perry!
WHO is CREATING THE DRAMA that you and others here are falling fore time and again? Not Palin.
The MEDIA is CREATING all the drama. I am uncertain as to how you all are missing the very obvious fact. All the ‘coyness?’ Palin said when she will announce her intentions and we aint even there yet. people here are getting all butterheaded over stuff she has not said, done or anything else.
You are doing this to yourselves people. Palin has said and done exactly what she told us she would.
I know you’re right. I guess I am looking too hard for my perfect candidate.
WSJ is owned by Rupert Murdoch who owns Fox News.
After you said “WSJ full of...”, it’s kinda redundant to ask if they’re trying to start trouble.
Still, it’s amazing to see how many folks around here can get stampeded so quickly.
Plumb goosey bunch, sometimes.
Maybe need to be reminded: FACTS BEFORE FERTILIZER
There are only two reasons for touring the country as she has:
(1) Making money for speaking engagements
(2) Running for Office
If you’re in it for the money what do you care who else is on the bill? You can’t make money by disappointing paying customers. She’s running!
Sounds to me like she’s still keepin’ em guessing.
And she didn’t “cancel” the event. It’s just no longer confirmed. Jeesh....some people sure do bend over backwards to freak out about her schedule.
You are quite correct. Sarah is the one person that BOTH parties are against.
If she runs and gets elected I hope and pray that whoever is in charge of the negotiations for this event aren’t given a job in the State Department.
Who? Your loyal supporters who traveled miles to see you and then found out it was for nothing?
Yes. And with Perry in the WH, you can definitely look for Sarah Palin to part of his administration’s team on a high level.
Sarah is smart. No need to take on the stench of the Delaware loser and give the press a field day.
What does on hold mean?
It means for Palin it will be done my way and I won’t be set up to be ambushed...... She knows it’s a war out there now...just as another poster stated...you need to see her moves from a military perspective...then you will understand.
Sarah Palin = this season’s Fred Thompson.
Who knows at this point.
She has wasted political capital with hesitation.
I know her zealots here will claim it's great but it's not coming across good to non zealots...who matter more...and I have plenty in my extended family
They like her and her speeches but they think she is off track in this race.
I'm don't give me 79, I was there...I campaigned after the debacle of Carter...no one ever doubted Reagan was running and his folks never left the field from 1976 on
She should not wait much longer unless she is thinking about letting Perry stumble first...that could be the ONLY reason
Why run when she can jet around the country and make millions?
I think she can have more of an impact as a celebrity anyway.
—2)The conclusions you draw regards how the American people seem to think and vote are drawn from, where again?—
People. I talk to them. Lots of them. The number of republicans I’ve talked to that think she is an idiot is shocking. Yes, they are ignorant, but all I can do is try to inform them otherwise. And often it’s like trying to convince a “Ford” man that Toyotas are actually pretty good cars and, no matter what you say, he just says “their accelerator sticks. They’re not safe!”.
Now, I may think the guy is a boob, but that does not affect how the guy votes.
Oh, and I learned in 2008 not to ignore the polls. That is more empirical than my anecdotal evidence.
Don’t get me wrong. I think she could be our next president. If she is, I’ll believe it was an act of God. And I DO believe in such things. I’ve experienced three real miracles in my life so far.
September begins tomorrow and has 30 days.
The real question is what the heck is going on with Sarah? On hold? What does that mean?
Probable ambush ahead....she won’t be set up.
As far as I know shes not dangled one hint about announcing when she will run or if she will run.
Really? You are that far removed from the candidate’s words?
“Legally, of course, there are time frames. That time is coming rapidly in front of all of us,” Palin told Fox host Sean Hannity, who asked when she would announce her decision. “August and September you do have to start laying out a plan if you are to be one to throw your hat in the ring. So that’s basically the time frame.”
You swore she would run in the past...why the change?
my wife thinks she’s angling for next Arizona senate seat...a job for life
—3)It seems how the Americvan people thought and voted in the last election was, shall we say, totally unexpected?—
No it wasn’t. The polls predicted it. I just thought the polls HAD to be wrong. They were not. I was wrong and learned from it.
Well you know, Christine was a Tea Party selected candidate.
Other than being a nut, why should she not be allowed to speak? LOL
Amen to that. Critical thinking and forbearance are supposed to be Conservative traits.
—1)So, how would you vote?—
I mentioned in another post that I would vote for Palin.
If I could wave a wand and determine, on my own, who this country’s next president is, it would be Palin.
Dude, the article was retracted and you still rant as if it’s true...
LOL. You may be right, though I don’t think she would win a Senate seat in AZ.
She would be better off running for Senate in AK.
With regard to Palin, why don't we just wait to hear the official word on what is going on from the Palin camp instead of going off half-cocked on every media rumor (which has already had to get corrected at least once this morning).
For those who want true change in Washington next year, remember that the media is not on our side. If we are going to take back our country, we are going to have to do it on our own and as Margaret Thatcher used to day, now is not the time to go wobbly.
You know what Ford stands for, right?
Fix It Again Tony!
