Sarah Palin Confirms Participation in Tea Party Debate [RUMOR]
The Christian Post ^ | Friday, September 2, 2011 | By Christine Thomasos | Christian Post Contributor

A nightstick the size of a telephone poll and the muscle to wield it effortlessly!
WATCH HER FIGHT LIKE A GIRL!



"Mr. _resident, GAME ON!" APRIL 16, 2011

Amid much speculation about whether or not Sarah Palin will choose to run in the 2012 presidential election, the former Alaskan Governor has announced she will participate in a nationally televised Tea Party Republican Debate.



Although Palin will take part in the debate in the Sept. 12 debate in Tampa, Fla., she still has yet to confirm that she is looking to become a presidential hopeful. However, the 2008 vice presidential candidate seems to be dropping hints via her Twitter page.

"America is waiting for the president to make good on this promise," Palin recently posted on Twitter. "I'll be talking about this and more."

Although Palin will join Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Massachusetts Gov. Romney, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, businessman Herman Cain, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman on Sept. 12, some say she is only confusing her supporters.

Erick Erickson, said Palin is misleading her constituents.

"We are coming to the end of the line for Sarah Palin's ability to string the Republican primary voters along," Erickson wrote. "They are trying to settle on a candidate now, they've held out hope of her entry and

Rumors, innuendo, and dirty tricks from
the Romneys and the Perrys (through the Sullivans
and others with connections to the MSM).

Where? Twitter? Her Facebook page? Where and when did she say this?; the article does not give any links. But they do quote a McCain campaign staffer and this Eric cat. Hmmmmmmm. (PDS-ers in 4....3...2......) :^ )

Do we have a link from Sarah Palin announcing she will participate? Because if not, this could be a leaked story that she will, only to be countered later that she won’t, and then people will say “See, she keeps jerking people around!”

Conspiracies, rumors, whatever no longer matter.

Palin could immediately end all this talk by simply saying whether she is running or not running.

The ball is in her court, and she’s not shooting.

Quit dribbling, Sarah...shoot the darn ball.

Wow. Perry just dropped like a rock, in my mind, hearing about Ken Crow and the games he played trying to mess Palin up.

I trust rintense. Of course she still has to date me, but I still trust her, in anticipation of that date.

“Erickson wrote. They are trying to settle on a candidate now”

THEY are not trying to settle on a candidate as long as there are all those names in the mix. What THEY are trying to do is make sure the Democrat’s pick (Mitt) is not the winner.

If the point is to put the widest variety of ideas on the table and hash out which are the best ones, I’m all for it. The more voices, the better - this country needs a good brainstorming session and it’s not going to come from the scions of Columbia, Harvard and Yale (who got us into this mess, just like they got us into the Great Depression).

disclaimer: not a Palin supporter and see no need for her to be in the race as a candidate

How in the hell can she be part of a debate without being a candidate? Am I missing something here? Or, is the plan that she would have announced by that date?

The dog and pony show of Palin grabbing and gasping for limelight without being a candidate is really getting tiring.

Even if we grant your assumptions that A) Crow was a Perry supporter and B) he was trying to mess Palin up (neither of which is proven to my knowledge), what does that have to do with Perry himself? If we are going to judge the candidates by what their supporters do, then I could never support Sarah even if she got the nomination, simply due to the behavior of her supporters here on FR.

Erickson needs to shut up and go pound sand with his RINO buddies. The election is in November 2012 and NOT November 2011.

I absolutely vote on the supporters of a candidate, not the candidate itself. The candidate is completely unimportant in any given race. The important consideration is who supports them.

Sarah hasn’t confirmed anything. This story is incorrect per CNN.

“Invitations were extended to the eight Republicans who will appear on stage in Tampa as well as former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Giuliani declined the debate invitation, while a Palin representative has yet to respond to it.”

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/09/01/gop-hopefuls-will-face-off-in-cnn-tea-party-debate/?on.cnn=1

Confirmed: Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Jon Huntsman.

Bachmann was not a candidate when she participated in the first GOP debate. Most debates will invite potential candidates with over a 5% poll ranking. Palin was invited.

I'm a Sarah Palin supporter and I'm getting weary of the leftist, Palin-opposed media and would-be Palin primary opponents setting arbitrary dates for Sarah Palin to announce whether or not she is running for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, then castigating her for not announcing on their schedule. I'm as anxious as any other Palin supporter for Sarah to declare her candidacy. However, unlike the Washington pundits and some FR posters, I'm not clairvoyant and do not know for a certainty whether Palin will or will not run. I'm also willing to assume that at this point, Palin knows what she is doing. I'm more than willing to allow Sarah Palin to choose her date to announce her candidacy. If she does run, I fully expect that she'll announce before the end of this month, possibly as soon as Saturday (9/3). If she doesn't run, the date she announces that decision won't have a huge impact on the GOP primary race except to energize the candidates to try and secure for themselves primary votes that would have gone to Palin, which would be a whole lot of votes. However, like many, I believe (as well as hope and pray) that Sarah Palin chooses to make the sacrifice for her country and run for the upcoming Republican presidential nomination. We'll all know, soon enough.

That article was published yesterday. This one bears today’s date. All part of the media frenzie, but Governor Palin has a special place in heart for TEA PARTY EXPRESS, so we shall see how this plays out. I pinged Syncro first, hoping he might know for sure.

I am going to Tampa for this debate, so I sure hope she plans to participate.

Heck, I will be thrilled if she’s on hand!

The dog and pony show of Palin grabbing and gasping for limelight without being a candidate is really getting tiring.

And so the media have you drinking their koolaid. Everytime one of these things happen, it's from some source outside of the Palin camp.

Someone in the media announces that she has decided something and too many people, especially Freepers, just gobble it up like it was Gospel. When she announces something, it is on her Facebook account.

I checked, she has not announced participation in the Sept 12th debate. When she announces it, I will believe it.

Otherwise it is a media dog and pony show just trying to get stupid people to believe it is Sarah Palin's dog and pony show.

Even if Crow is a Perry supporter, and that’s questionable...he could be a covert Gingrich supporter trying to hurt Perry for all we know...but even if he was a perry supporter, that doesn’t mean that perry gave an order to mess up palin.

And, if we blame Perry for a bad supporter, then we have to blame every candidate every time on of their supporters does something out of line. That’s an impossible standard.
