Sarah Palin PAC Reserves Space Near RNC Site
ABC ^ | Apr 12, 2012 | Elizabeth Hartfield

Posted on 04/13/2012 3:55:57 PM PDT by Anti-Bubba182

It looks like Sarah Palin is planning to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August — or is at least planning to be in the general vicinity.

Financial disclosures from Palin’s political action committee, Sarah PAC, show a $4,500 deposit has been placed at the Channelside Bay Mall in downtown Tampa–walking distance from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention......"

I wonder why she needs the space? Is she anticipating a brokered convention?

It would be the answer to my prayers if Sarah came in and rescued us from Romney before that dumb ba$tard hands Obama another four years in the White House.

One last pothole on a well-paved road by the GOP_e for Romney. Go for it, Sarah.

This could be that she is just hedging her bets. Romney could have it all locked up by the time of the convention, but something could happen. This does indicate she is not pursuing a third party bid.

Of course Palin will be at the convention. She is ABO and will have a prime time speaking slot.

Things that make you go hmmmmm.

Before she dropped out, around the time she was making that bus tour, I believed she said that she would PREFER to run as a Republican. But she left a third party bid open.

If, as looks increasingly probable, Romney gets the nod, then the GOP is, frankly, defunct, and third party will be the only choice. Or, to use a more optimistic term for it, a new second party will be the only choice.

I'll vote against O whatever happens. But I agree, if Romney is the best this party has to offer, I'm in the wrong party.

I've said several times, if Romney is the nominee and loses to O, the party breaks. And if he wins, it may break anyway.

Either way, I personally am in the wrong party and plan to do something about it.

The convention is in August. That is too late for a third party bid. If Romney gets the nomination and loses then a third party is definitely possible unless a revolution happens first.

Before she dropped out

First, Palin never dropped out. She was never a candidate, Fox News had discussions with her through the summer and never felt she would be a candidate, and ultimately Sarah declined to run.

But she left a third party bid open.

No she didn't. She was absolutely clear that there is no consideration of a 3rd party - at least not for this election cycle. She has said that it would guarantee Obama's re-election.

Palin is ABO and will support and campaign for Willard - just like Santorum, Newt, Perry, Cain, etc, etc, will.

Exactly. She will put butts in the seats, and will make the teevee ratings soar when she speaks. The rest of the convention will be a yawner.

Also, it is not likely that she has just now made her reservations. I read that every single hotel room in the area has been booked that week for months now.

I “heart” Sarah Palin. I liked the 9-9-9 plan. I was cheering for Santorum, all the while knowing he didn’t have a chance, but this campaign did WONDERS for his political stock. He will be back.

But face it, Romney’s the guy.

The same reason why a celebrity reserves a box seat for the Superbowl. They don't do it because they expect to be called in to play, they do it to watch the game.

Not really. PAC money is used to attend all sorts of events. Considering she has a speaking slot, it seems on par.

I think we all need to quit hoping for change in regards to an outsider at the convention. IF there is a brokered convention, the brokering will be done between the delegates on the floor- those delegates will come from and be loyal to the candidates that brought them.

In other words, the brokering will still be between the delegates for Newt, Romney, and Santorum. An outsider won’t be in the position to have brought delegates to the floor. They may have fans in the crowd, but fans don’t have votes at the convention.

You face it, HE IS SATAN'S guy. Bow to him all you want COWARDS DO - you are afraid of satan's minion on one side - yet, you bow to satan on the other side. Satan has you going or coming.

ONLY the Strong can withstand that battle. Cowards are weak because of fear. Fear is of satan so HE OWNS THE COWARDS! They are now in the web of deception he created, never to be released.

Mitt is using money to buy the election. That’s DECEPTION, not an excuse. Deception is satan’s tool and LYING is his trademark.

Mitt is satan’s minion - whether it’s mitt or obama - America can’t escape it, it will have no chance of being ‘under God’ but ‘under satan’ - all of you ABO have been duped by satan himself and are now tainted with evil. You are in for a ride you will never forget. You deliberately kicked God to the curb for satan by your fear.

Sarah is going to help the GOP nominee, whoever it is, beat Obama but let him know LOUDLY that she will primary his ass out on his ass in 2016 if he pisses off the Tea Party during his first term.

THIS is what Sarah AND NEWT GINGRICH have in plan in Tampa.

Maybe she wants to self secure a location for herself to meet with the public and those that donate to her and to maybe sign books.
I think she is out of this election cycle by her own choice long ago.
Until the money stops coming in for speaking and appearances I doubt she will get back into politics.

The Democrats have an operation to run a third party candidate, to split the opposition. See http://www.americanselect.org/ A couple of high-powered Democrat campaign consultants have ben working this for the party (I think Doug Schoen).

They will be on the ballot in all 50 states, and will pick the best spoiler they can get, according to candidate availability and the situation/polling as close to the election as they can get. If conservatives are disgruntled/rebellious enough to defect in numbers great enough to swing the election (it might only be needed in a few swing states), they will get the best conservative they can who is willing to be a spoiler.

Don’t fall for their trap, allowing Obama to pack the Supreme Court, bankrupt the nation and disarm us.

Conservatives need 50% of the votes plus 1 to win (figure on 52% with fraud and recounts). To form a coalition that big, our natural allies are the Republican Party. Falling for divisiveness is to surrender the future to those employing a divide and conquer strategy. Remember Reagan’s 11th commandment: Thou shall speak no ill of a fellow Republican.

There hasn’t been a sitting President since before FDR who won reelection after experiencing a serious primary challenge.

The threat of such, and laying it out now, is IMHO a valid and workable check on Mittens returning to his old ways should Conservatives hold their noses and support him in an ABO scenario. So long as the one(s) making the threat are trusted Conservatives and there are other clear indicators (like who he picks as his veep) that he plans to go against his past track record and govern from the right.

I would love it also!!! With Romney it seems as if Rev Wright and all Obama`s radical friends will be off the table.

The moment Romney mentions (he wont) Rev Wright or any of the Obama radicals, all they have to do is come back with Mormonism, wife swapping etc, so it`s a lose lose situation.

Even the health care, Romney is neutralized that way as well to a degree (large degree)

The entire thing stinks.

Can I even be confident that Romney would appoint a truly Conservative judge on Supreme Court, No I am not.

Howabout something in writing?

In October, the GOP nominee will be so far behind in the polls he will finally realize the GOP-e has played him, and us, for fools.

If that nominee realizes in time that he must either win or enter the Ford/Bush41/Dole/McCain/ political perdition of “nobody gives a damn about you but you you loser” he will do all he can to kiss Tea Party Butt and promise, in writing, to do as they wish and to then step down in 2016 to allow a real conservative to take it from there..

If not, the GOP is finished and then it will be either Civil War 2 or a successful third party.

You need a nap, a new pharmacist, or some spine. Please don't paint everyone with your brush, we are all in an untenable position and will do what it takes. We are praying for the best outcome and will work toward that end. Accusing people on your team of being Satan's minions is a non starter..

People are too blinded by fear of the deception that is being played out - they are dropping likes flies into his web of deception because of fear. You say a non starter? - I say the final destination because of a lack of knowledge.

in an untenable position and will do what it takes.

So much for your faith - you already decided it's untenable. You already submitted to what you see with your eyes arranged by evil. So you can't do anything, you already submitted and marked it with words 'it's untenable'.

She needs to watch her expenses. She has about $1M and if she’s going to try to benefit from a brokered convention, she’s going to need more than a million to campaign in three month’s time!

*sigh* What are you doing at the local level to ensure a new party from the ground up? What local legislators and officials have you demanded audience with? Hmmm? None, I’ll bet. How many GOP members at your county and municipal members have you corresponded with?

Untenable? Yes, indeed. It will come down to Romney or Obama. Nothing there for a conservative, but working at the local level at least offers a foundation or a base to work from. And make no mistake, those of us at the local level are working and praying...and not being hysterical..

Me too!! Sarah Palin was always my 1st choice, Newt is my 2nd choice. I hope now that its between Romney and Gingrich that Newt will be getting more delegates. I dont know how the system works but can Santorum give his delegates to Newt if he wants to? I gotta get my butt to Tampa I would love to see Sarah give that speech.!!
