Thanks for the kind words. I’ll try to live up to them ;o)
The secret service can’t really protect any candidate’s family, especially when you include extended family. So are we saying the bad guys or opposition now have a way to take out (of the running) any of our candidates that they find particularly threatening to them?
As for the cash Perry is raising, that's coming from well connected, established Texas money. Not surprising at all.
I think Alaska presents a challenge none are prepared for.
Thank you, dear, cherished friend, for your extremely kind words.
I was glad to learn from her that her decision was made by her family and that she had made it on the day she notified Mark Levin. I know she had every desire to run, and that she was in serious prayer and serious discussions with her family. It’s a family affair to run. God bless them always and she’s not going away. We will be here to always support her endeavors whatever they may be.
You’re so very special to me, I can’t thank you enough!
We fight on! We fight for our TEA PARTY CONSERVATIVES IN ALL THE STATES INCLUDING YOURS!
May God always bless and keep you and yours!
He said it's a game changer, and Breitbart alluded to a major story as well.
Wikipedia says: "The 2012 Iowa Caucuses are scheduled to take place on February 6, 2012."
So the bombshell would be dropped by December 6, 2011?
Not that far off.
Actually, he said 30 days... so January.
Very interesting. Thanks for the info.
Another thing to watch... if Palin sells that Arizona house. If she does sell it soon, it means she likely WAS going to run, then something changed quickly.
Thank you, Onyx, for the pings and your tireless efforts. Sad to hear this is the last one. Please keep me on your list *when* the time comes to start it up again.
Disappointing news that SP chose not to run.
(I’ll have to change my sig, but I’m leaving it for one more post.)
Your comments are both beautiful and spot on!
Prayer is always my salvation and first choice.
GOING GALT is most certainly a possibility.
I hope everyone reads your post.
May God have mercy and May He bless and protect our Republic and all TEA PARTY PARTIOTS!
I get it.... thanksverymuch!
YOU DO, YOU DO!
I am holding onto her List but there’s no use in pinging since she is not running.
Once she gets into her NEW GROOVE, we can start a new list!
How does that sound?
You will be one of the first!
Thank you from my heart for your loyal suport!
You are very, super special to me!
WHAT A DATE! The day before December 7!
Traveling Wilburys - End Of The Line
I don't know that I can ever forgive the GD media in this country for that, jokes about statutory rape and other such bull###t. And don't get me started on that little POS Bill Maher.
Dear God, let it be so to end this freaking madness.
Maker of Palin Film: GOP Primary “Will Be A Lot Less Interesting”
Published: Wed, October 05, 2011, 4:41 PM
Stephen Bannon, who made the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated,” says that he thinks her decision not to run will make the Republican primary “a lot less interesting.”
“She was very straightforward,” Bannon says. “She told people that her decision would be through consultation with her family and through prayer. That is what she did, and she made the decision that this was not the time for her.”
He adds, “People read a lot more in to these things than there is. I don’t think people realize how life altering running for president is.”
Bannon says that it is now less likely that the primary season will see a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican party akin to Ronald Reagan’s challenge to President Gerald Ford’s nomination in 1976. “Without Governor Palin, I don’t think you’ll have that battle.”
Yes, I don’t think we’ve heard the last of her.
Good stuff! Thanks, LV!
She will not make a difference
Pray tell, how did the 2010 mid-terms go for the Dems?
And why ?
You need to get your facts straight, mrs.
Knock it off. There’s no reason to keep up the insults. Many people will still admire her and whether you think so she’ll be a draw for people & a tireless campaigner. You don’t like her. Good for you but to be honest, I don’t think most people give a rip. For some reason you’re incredibly bitter, whether about life in general or Palin specifically but it would probably be better for your health & your blood pressure to just go on other threads. I’m sick to death of the contentiousness around here. You’ve said your peace saying it several more times isn’t going to make it anymore true but it is going to taint your relationship with people here. Supposedly you’re here because you have more shared opinions and values with other FReepers, even those on this list who still admire her, love her speeches and appreciate how much she’s done for conservatives. She was absolutely key in getting conservatives elected up and down the ballot in the midterms, campaigning tirelessly. She’s defended conservatives and the Tea Party when no one else would. She says what most of us wish we could say and that other conservatives don’t have the guts to say. But you don’t like her. I’ve read it more than once on this thread. What the heck do you get saying it several times?
I’m with you all the way! Forgiveness will NEVER be in me.
That’s God’s realm. Not mine.
I’m their enemy for the rest of my life.
I will miss these Palin Pings. I know that she had good reason not to run and I respect her for doing what she needed to, but America needs her in some capacity.
Thank you, Onyx, for your untiring support and for all the abuse you have taken from people who didn’t understand.
See ya’ ‘round, I trust! (((hugs)))
He’s right. On ALL counts.
I am finished, over and out with the Republican party.
I am through being played.
I will only support TEA PARTY PATRIOTS!
Thank you ever so much, my sweet, cherished GF.
We will have a new Sarah List once she starts her new endeavors!
In the interim, lets pick our nominee -— our favorite candidate -— and support our choice to the hilt!!!
WE HAVE SERIOUS WORK TO DO!
YOU’RE THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
WE WILL PREVAIL, DESPITE THE ODDS!
I think she’s a troll too. Who the hell feels that compelled to post the same bitter crap over and over again. Going to have to put this one on the watch list. Most of the crowd that didn’t think she could run and/or win still appreciate what she’s done for conservatives & how hard she’ll continue to work for and conservative candidates.
Her detractors here were right...she ain;t up to it.
Good speeches though,.
her silly zot posse is still wallowing
amazingly nutty folks
I am disgusted. The way she dragged on folks who were very serious about her was just ridiculous.
She will never get another ounce of support or cash for me. She was the big shadow over the primary and may have thwarted serious folks who may have stepped in earlier.
I don’t even want to look at her.
Remember how some of her jacksass supporters here were so vile with Bachmann
at least Bachmann had the stones to run
Palin ...worthless baggage in a serious war
*note my tagline amended
What freaking censorship you tool! You’re hear saying what you want to say. People don’t agree. Too bad. People are saying it would be a good idea to stop it. You haven’t been very long and people that protest this much are often trolls or DU’ers trying to play conservative.
Absolutely NO ROMNEY....and we WILL prevail! Rock on chicky! :)
((((( LUV W )))))
We will wait for Sarah’s next chapter and meanwhile will be
studying all the candidates...the SERIOUS ones....very carefully! :)
A serious question - should a mother or father ask the permission of their children before pursuing something? Should a father ask his children if he can join the military before fighting the WOT? I can understand talking with them and explaining your decision...but to ask permission? And make your decision based upon them granting you permission?
Back in 94 and 95 Newt WAS my Sarah Palin. But he was villified and did not handle it well. I don’t have a problem with his personal life. I just was upset that he tried to get along with the oposition way too much. But I just don’t know. I don’t FEEL anyone.
Good night, ((( LUV W )))
Palin is finished. She has disappointed many of us for the last time. She is now irrelevant. Who cares what she does now? She will be relegated to take the late Geraldine Ferraro's place on meaningless news shows.
It turns out, she just didn't have what it takes. I was fooled. I admit it. I hope she just stays in Wasilla and disappears from public view. I don't want to keep being reminded, every time I see her, how much she disappointed me and the nation. I am truly heartbroken. I feel jilted at the altar. She mislead us, strung us along far too long. Goodbye Sarah, don't call me, I'll call you, (never again).
Right back at you.
Running for POTUS is a family affair.
Sarah Palin has a security team and deals with SERIOUS DEATH THREATS DAILY. A security teams that she pays for out of her own pocket.
Security is NOT provided until a candidate becomes the nomineee.
Her children were not 100% behind her run. They do not want to lose their Mom to a hater in the massive crowds she draws!
Think about THAT!
Well, the mission of the Tea Party lives on .. we’ve got
to be and go somewhere, and I’m sure Sarah will be front and center and behind the scenes, making a difference as always.
God bless her and her family. Hugs, dear O .. it’s feeling funereal, isn’t it? I do now wonder if there was some alarming info that popped up in the last couple of weeks.
I’m with you. I am not emotionally involved anymore either.
I want the Marxist defeated and he must be deated and his army of thugs destroyed!
I want our side to pick the toughest CONSERVATIVE, and I will vote for that nominee and help as I can!
The only reason that she is not running is because she knows that she cannot win. The left has been very successful in its campaign to discredit her. From the relentless Alaska election lawsuits to Tina Fey’s calculated character assasinations, the left has poisoned the public’s perception of her. The left has been especially successful at driving down her ratings with women.
I am baffled by the left’s success. Palin is an incredibly gifted speaker with heartfelt values. She is well versed on policy. She is the anti Hillary. Yet the public now has a very favorable opinion of HER despite years of incredibly polarizing scandals. SHE has been established as intelligent despite HER only talent for rain making based on Slick’s political offices. Palin in contrast is geniune and self made.
I remain baffled by the left’s success in depicting Palin as a stupid extremist. The left fears her but I do not understand why her favorability ratings are so low.
give us a break...you sound very much like a visiting troll..
exit any time..you won’t be missed...
TOO BAD FOR POOR YOU.
HER CHILDREN DIDN’T WANT THEIR MOM TO TAKE A BULLET FOR POOR YOU.
DAILY, SERIOUS DEATH THREATS.
I sure don’t feel Newt.
I think he’s a brilliant thinker and an opportunistic,
thin-skinned, quibbling egomaniacal doer who DOES cross
the aisle a little too vainly and stupidly for me. Pelosi? There’s no rock solid, permanent core there.
