“Biden wont be anyones VEEP in 2012 ! :-)”
No kidding! (And thank God.)
So what did you mean about the GOP veep?
You were just reelected. When you finish out this term, itll be 14 years as governor of Texasan all-time record. Given that there are no term limits in the Lone Star state, are you planning to stay on and run again?
To look past this term, the next four years, is way down the road. To say heres what Im going to be doing in 2014 is a bit of stretch.
But youve said that youve got the best job in the country...
... and that you have no interest in running president. Still the case?
Not going to run for president. Not going to be a vice-presidential candidate. Not going to be in anybodys cabinet. And I suspect Im not going to be anybodys ambassador either.
Whatever, Winifred. I’m not here to win converts. If every person on this site votes against Perry in the primary it won’t make the difference.
How many people has Rick taken money from who are on pensions while he spins his crony capitalist bankroll? Plenty.
Then why are you so afraid of Palin?
And please, don’t try to deny it. Every one of you trolls who are so sure she can’t win sure act like a bunch of scared little babies.
What business is it of yours that people voluntarily donate money to anyone's defense funds?
What the hell is wrong with people?
No, that’s not what she said - this is what she said:
She made some news, saying she would probably make up her mind on a 2012 bid by next month, “in fairness to supporters who are standing on the sidelines. “I don’t want to be perceived as stringing people along,” she said. “Don’t jump on someone else’s bandwagon because I might jump in. That’s not fair to them.”
When you go out on a limb you are NOT suppose to cut it off next to the tree.
So we’re on the same page. Cool.
My biggest fear of Palin is that she can’t beat Obama.
I have a strong suspicion that you're unable to back up that claim. This ought to be good...
Rick has taken money for campaigns. Sarah hasn’t had a campaign since McCain.
I’ll believe it when I see it, and not until.
Palin has a right to make money like yourselves. Let it be. She is not breaking any laws. If she were to get in the race, she can spend some of that $$$ humm. If she doesnt, she can take care of her family. Take care, DRey. Goodnight everyone.
Your biggest fear of Palin is that she will make Ricky look like a fool.
That will NEVER happen. Sorry. Try again.
You have made, on this thread alone, quite a few rather uneducated, even stupid comments, stated as facts, which they aren't and never were.
Soooooooooooo................you stopped paying attention to Palin in '09, as I guessed at and claimed that she "lost you" when she began to make big money AND take on candidates? Well, snookums, in '09, the ONLY candidate, in view, was.................................BARRY OBAMA !
You didn't like it that she took on wee Barry ? REALLY?
Just because you "know" Perry and his family, doesn't mean that he's a good/better than Palin candidate.
I don't live in Texas, but I'm beginning to get the distinct impression that I know more about him and his positions, than you do.
Nope, should Palin win the GOP presidential nomination, you will NOT be her "biggest supporter"; not by a long shot !
Here's a very simple hint ( and one that you must not take as an insult, as it is given with kindness ).........: don't talk about things you truly do not know about/are unsure of. That will save you a lot of grief!
When you think of Romney politically you think “typical Northeastern RINO”
When you think of Perry politically you think “typical Republican”
Nothing new or excitable
LOL... after seeing his performance in the debate I think it’s inevitable.
Posting assumptions, innuendos, and outright falsehoods never works out well here.
Another fear I have of Palin is that she’ll have another Katie Couric moment. And I know, I know. She was set up, all that. I know. But the fact is, you just CAN’T DO that and expect people to vote for you to represent them. That scares me to death and I haven’t seen any evidence that she is prepared to be any quicker on her feet. She’s great with prepared speeches, but she’s got to be better than quick to overcome. Rick isn’t great in debates, but the double standard is there. We professional women know this. Palin has to be better than good. I’m afraid she can’t do that and will blow it for us.
You’re being obtuse now. We’re done.
She actually STINKS at it and IF she is a “paid poster” ( which has happened on FR since its inception ), whoever is giving her notes and/or money, has wasted his or her time, energy,and perhaps money.
Keep it up. You’re batting about 1000 on all the trolling points.
Gee whiz. I sure have occupied your time this evening. Sounds like my “handlers” have gotten their monies worth!
If you don’t like the answers, don’t keep asking me questions. I have not been pursuing YOU on this thread, but the other way around, sweets.
..and there you go! The troll is proud of her work!
You seem concerned.
You know, you're all over the map tonight about Palin.
First you think the idea of her announcing her bid for the presidency on a radio show is ridiculous -
Then you 'cite' her own internal polls (which of course, somehow bolster your view that she can't beat Perry) -
Then you claim you used to support her, but lost your faith in her -
Then you claim (by way of inference) that she's leading her supporters on -
Then you claim she's taking pensioners' money while raking in millions -
And now the problem is, you don't think she can beat Obama.
But you really do like her, and will vote for her if she's the nominee......
Are you starting to see why your credibility around here is mud?
She won’t make Perry look like a fool, b/c he isn’t one, but she’ll make his campaign look pedestrian. Sarah is the best we’ve got.
No. The Palinistas keep asking, so I keep answering.
Palin is not and never has been your average, run of the mill pol and IF you really "love" her, you would: 1) know that 2) appreciate that 3) understand that.
Of course no other pol, ESPECIALLY GOP ONES, right now, can, or has the guts and brains to do/say what she has and continues to do.
Many, many, many decades ago, in my salad days, when I was "green", to quote Shakespeare, I told my mother that we GOPers needed to take off the damned white gloves and allow the damned Dems to walk all over us. Well, finally, at long last, Palin has done just that!
Okey Doke...what in my post and your post is different?
She has said she would declare in September, or not.
And you say that you're a professor? Flunk.
For every person posting on this site, there are about a dozen who just lurk. And for every person who visits here, there are probably close to another hundred who feel just like they do.
I'm afraid that if every Freeper voted against Perry in the primary, it would only be the tip of the iceberg, my dear.
Power of FReeRepublic.
I don’t deny I’ve had mixed feelings about Palin, but not tonight. She really has turned me off the last couple of months with her behavior from the peanut gallery. I do NOT believe she is announcing anything but that she isn’t running in the future. I DO think it would be ridiculous to announce a run on the radio (regardless of laurel and hardy in Alaska), and if she were to somehow end up with the nomination I would not only vote for her but campaign for her. If you don’t understand that, you’re trying not to. I don’t believe you are stupid.
And besides which, she was forced to send all of that money back......................in '09; unlike the Clintons, who got all kinds of money to pay off their bills, whilst truly raking in big bucks for books,speaking engagements, etc.!
Please stop posting, ANYTHING, until you actually learn some facts! You are making a complete and utter fool of yourself!
You say it bothers you that Gov. Palin ‘took money from people on pensions for her defense fund’ while raking in millions. . .
She didn’t start making that kind of money until AFTER she resigned from Gov. in order to end the frivolous suits for both her and the State of Alaska.
By making your statement, you call yourself out as a hypocrite if you ever decry her leaving her Office of Gov. I haven’t paid attention enough to know if you have done so in the past, but I’m going to be watching your comments from this point forward. This post will serve as a bump for later reference to call you out anytime in the future you cry about her resigning.
Your comment directly mitigates why she did so. You can’t have it both ways.
I hope Sarah lives up your expectations.
Whatever, Winifred. I disagree.
Good grief.... "obtuse"?
Go back to school, professor. And bone up on vocabulary this time.
Oh, no. Palin would NEVER settle for lesser of the evils. Uh-uhI'm pretty sure they were at least always Republicans.
