I watched a rerun of Braveheart last night, it reminded me that evil politicians are inbred narcissists. They never cede power voluntarily.

Amazing how many Million$ are spent to combat an opponent without a hope of winning...as they say over and over and over. Perhaps the whole Rhinocracy is a group of misunderstood philanthropists who stay awake nights trying to find ways to save Sarah Palin from disappointment.

Or, perhaps the propaganda techniques RINO Republicans borrowed from Obama coopted from Goebbels are just a long skirt covering their knocking knees. What say you?

Confucius says: The difference between confidence and constipation is that people rarely believe in themselves when they know they are full of s***. Really, no kidding...Confucius and I were sharing a bottle of Almaden Mountain Red, and that’s just what he said. ;)

FOX has been increasingly hostile to Sarah Palin, you can think it is reflecting reality, or trying to change it. Your choice.

Personally I think they have been given their script, by whom is a matter of speculation for me, others may know facts, I just have gut feelings.

“I will still vote for Sarah Palin, even if she doesn’t run”

You are planning to possibly write in a throw away vote and I’m the clown?

Okay then.

"If you care about saving the Republic you will quit the childish attacks on the very people that could bring a little sanity to the government process, you know someone that actually speaks truthfully all the time, not just at election time.

The Republic ended when Obama took the oath of office. Only one man stood up for it and was soundly trashed by many here including the management.

I'll write in LTC Lakin on the presidential ballot. The rest of the cowards can go straight to hell.

The real title should be, “Rick Perry Leads While Voters on the Sidelines Want Sarah Palin”

That is the Fantasy of Denial.

This is the Reality of the Facts.

========================

Sean Hannity asks a Republican crowd in Iowa, "Do You Want Sarah Palin To Enter The Presidential Race?"

========================

FOX News Poll: For Release 6PM ET Thursday, September 1, 2011

27. Do you think Sarah Palin should run for president in 2012 or not? (ALL VOTERS)

Yes ................. 20%

No ...................74%

(Don’t know) ....6%

“Delusional. She is going to slam crony capitalists (ie-Rick Perry and friends) in her Indianola speech and then turn around and endorse him?!” ..... Brices Crossroads

She endorsed him for Governor. Was he NOT a crony capitalist then? ..... Grunthor

The "Crony Capitalism = Perry" agitprop has been picked up and repeated by left-wing media outlet after left-wing media outlet. The Washington Post article on Palin used by Drudge today ends:

The “crony capitalism” was described as a veiled attack against Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has been criticized for handing out favors to political supporters.

However, as explained in the first comment of a thread I posted yesterday, "Crony Capitalism" has been a long-standing Sarah Palin theme that has absolutely nothing to do with Rick Perry. (Below)

===========================

Crony capitalism: Perry’s Achilles heel? (Media agitprop distorting Sarah’s long-term position)

Once hints about Sarah Palin’s speech on September 3 began to leak out, it seems that the Left-wing media has latched on to a new line of attack against the GOP front-runner: The media claims that Sarah Palin is specifically targeting Rick Perry by the use of the phrase “Crony Capitalism”. This line of attack is now being picked up by other left-wing media including CNN.

Palin will up the ante but not announce run in Iowa speech ….. Palin plans to unleash a furious criticism of "crony capitalism" and attack the "permanent political class" in both parties: thinly veiled criticisms of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has surged to the top of most polls for the Republican presidential nomination

The truth is that “Crony Capitalism”, where the Federal Government in general and the Democrats in particular pick winners and losers by interfering with the marketplace and “decide which firms to rescue or close, and which creditors to reward and how” has been a long-standing Sarah Palin theme.

What Sarah Palin means by “Crony Capitalism” is explained by Sarah Palin herself in this article written by Sarah a year and a half ago, back in April, 2010, before Rick Perry was even reelected Governor of Texas and before Perry was even on the Presidential radar screen.

Institutionalizing Crony Capitalism, by Sarah Palin on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 7:28pm

What was Sarah Palin doing in February, 2010, two months before she wrote her “Crony Capitalism” article?

Sarah was endorsing Rick Perry for reelection at a joint Houston rally.

08 February 2010 .... Palin brings out crowd for Perry rally near Houston

Be aware of what the left-wing media agitprop is trying to accomplish here.

I never saw that YouTube video. Quite telling.

Just as I'm typing this Sarah is wrapping up her Iowa thingy. We were all supposed to be waiting with baited breath on the edge of our seats. It was the super-duper big day.

At least that was the impression left (or the impression that was allowed to continue uncorrected) by the Sarah campaign... or non-campaign.. or whatever it is.

The supposed big day was quite anti-climactic. All I saw was a politician giving a speech. BFD.

“Sarah can decide on her own, why establishment and Fox news loons are forcing their own opinion on independent citizen.”

Sure she can, but if she runs now she likely loses now.

Polls are for strippers and cross country skiers.

Fox clearly went out of their way to snub Gov Palin. My prediction is that we will not see her again on Fox.

CNN is being fairer to Sarah than Fox is, and for some time now.

There is no fair and balanced network anymore.

Fox showed re runs rather than show her speech today, I will remember I wonder if Sarah will?

1. I’m not a “Palin supporter”.

2. If you’re gonna eat what’s served at the Fox circus, don’t whine about clowns that come with the meal and your patronage.

Now about that certifeecation - are your an exception, or are you a typical example of what the VA is calling “Unemployable” these days?

Isn’t typing an employment skill?

I have never, in any situation been attacked as I have been by this anti-veteran troll. I have responded in lower ways than I would like to. I sincerely apologize to any passing readers of those posts. The “FReeper” who seems to be personally offended by my being a disabled vet no longer exists to me. I will not be responding further to his abusive and disgusting posts.

I sincerely hope and pray that THAT person is not a sign of things to come in the future of this forum. I live in a very “blue” area of a very “blue” state. Anti-mililtary is like a relilgion here.

But I have to come to Free Republic to be attacked for having served my nation and been injured. By a 3 yeard old troll.

Troll! If you don't believe that all these people who don't want to vote for her will be suddenly swept to voting for her in November and after her two terms she will be carried into heaven like Elijah you are a dirty DU troll! /s Truth is, every time I talk to a non Freeper all I hear is how they don't like Palin for whatever reasons. The sheep of the public have been poisoned against her and nothing will change that.

Really does not matter if the folks from California,NY,MASS etc do not like her,they are going to vote Democrat anyway...speaking of the general election that is

Wow...a rational, calmly stated post on a Palin thread.

Absolutely correct on all counts. It IS early despite the fact that it seems the campaign has already been going on for months. And yes, Tea Partiers will support whoever seems to be the alternative to Myth.

Also agree that she isn’t running. I too haven’t thought she would for some time and would only add that if her plan was to get in now, she probably made a tactical blunder by doing so. She let Perry become a first tier candidate so from that perspective she waited too long.

I’d also add that there are a couple of filing deadlines bearing down...Colorado coming up this month I think and another next month - I’m not sure which one.

But Sarah can read polls. She simply can’t win. That doesn’t mean I think she’s not a good conservative...she clearly is. For many reasons, most of which aren’t really her fault, she just isn’t electable.

There is no such thing as a throw away vote.

I remember how the older people voted for Roosevelt, because they didn’t want to throw away their vote, by voting for a loser.

Let us not go back to that era. I will vote my heart, you have the same option, make the most of it.

Oh, piff.

Part of me wants Palin to run simply so I can see all the egg on all the faces.

First for the "She won't run" mantra...then for when she turns the race on its ear.

Chris Christie has shown there's an appetite for plain speaking.

Well said.

Not really. No way is Mrs. Palin "smarter" than Fred. And, Fred didn't tease; he actually ran.
