Palin, incoming
Politico ^ | 11/04/11 | Ben Smith

Posted on 11/04/2011 8:47:56 PM PDT by winoneforthegipper

Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner faced questions from "60 Minutes" yesterday on alleged conflict of interest, and my colleagues report:

According to Pelosi’s office, “60 Minutes” told them its upcoming report is based on a book by conservative writer Peter Schweizer, a fellow at the Hoover Institution whose previous books include, “Do as I Say (Not as I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy” and “Architects of Ruin: How Big Government Liberals Wrecked the Global Economy – and How They Will Do It Again if No One Stops Them.”

Schweizer is also Sarah Palin's speechwriter, and this does seem right up her alley.

Okay I will say, I wondered about Sarah saying she would do well on the sidelines....

Perhaps I will wait until Sunday's airing to judge her....lol

As noted in the comment section Schweizer is not her speech writer but a policy adviser.

No telling what and how many irons she has in the fire.

Something tells me she didn’t retreat back to AK to knit booties for Trig. Not that she couldn’t, or hasn’t; Sarah’s a multi-tasker.

I think she was really blown away by so many of her so called supporters that turned on her.

For sure I never did!

Feelings ran deep for her...I felt mine in pain. Not so much that she was not running...but for the fact I really did view her as the last hope....lol

However, time does heal.

Thank you for your response. However, I believe she could be the one to put the RNC on a clear plane, no backdoor this, or that. I believe that is what the RNC needs ... purity of intent. Lay it out for the American people, just honesty. And I , for one, believe that is what is needed. And I, for one, believe she is the one that could do it.

And she could do it at the same times she’s hunting moose! They still can’t get their minds off her...look at the scant “rumors” that she “might” be thinking about running now.

The mind-boggling corruption of the Obama/Dem stimulus and beyond is a bomb ready to explode, only in need of a crusader with a huge megaphone... and it is made-to-order for someone like Palin, whose whole political existence is practically defined by such battles, regardless of party. No other figure has as clean a record nor is better experienced in this department.

Obama needs a relentless beatdown on this sleaze. It’s an issue that appeals tremendously to independents, as well.

Palin ALREADY said No to the RNC Chair,...she SAID it was about going around doing fundraising and hobnobbing and something about that’s not something she would be interesting in doing. Sheesh!

Asking for money??

SarahPAC letter today: "There's No Question That We Must Replace Obama in 2012" Snail Mail | 9/20/2011 | Tim Crawford, SarahPAC Treasurer
Dear xxx,
As you may know, Gov. Palin is on the verge of making her decision of whether or not to run for office.
It's one of the most difficult and important decisions of her life. And I want her to know that she has our support.
Gov. Palin is a proven leader. She's a common-sense conservative who fights for the rights of Americans like you and me — not special interests or big corporations.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s presidency is a disaster. One in five working-age men are out of work. One in seven Americans are on food stamps. Thirty percent of our mortgages are under water. Parts of Michigan and California are suffering from unemployment numbers that are greater than during the depths of the Great Depression.
Someone must save our nation from this road to European Socialism. Do you think it should be Gov. Palin?
If so, can you send your best, one-time gift to SarahPAC today to help her elect more common-sense conservatives - and show her that we support her if she decides to run?
With time running out, thank you for your swift response!
Yours truly,
Tim Crawford
Treasurer, SarahPAC

“Schweizer is Sarah Palin’s adviser, not her speech writer, she writes her own articles and speeches.

But hey Politco Bozo, you got Palin’s name in there as a hit magnet, so why let facts get in the way.

I heard the head of the RNC discussing Cain’s firestorm - with friends like that who needs enemies? He sounded like an elitist snob who could care less.

Sure can’t imagine anyone who would elect this guy as RNC head ever voting for a real person like Sarah.

America is occupied France during the war, Sarah Palin heads up the resistance. Its better for her to work behind the scenes disrupting the occupiers than to be elected as an official thus being hobbled, watched, and manipulated.

I actually believe that by her actually staying away from being dragged through the POTUS mulching machine she can do more for the country. Obama is a fat wel dug in tic, he will not be dislodged easily, and I believe a manufactured crisis will happen very soon to postpone the elections.

So sarah Palin may have better intel suggesting she abstain because its most likely the elections will not happen.

That is the one of the things that turned me way off to Palin.That letter built innocent supporters up to get money under the guise of GIVE $$$ and she will run when they (she) knew darn well she wasn’t running.The whole tease thing can’t be brushed away in any way.As well as her comments were all over the map;she said she would be Romney’s VP in 2012 and has yet to disavow this.Palin is finito as anything but a Rove for the tea party.
