Several insiders interviewed for this story said former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will present a unique challenge to Romneys team: Will they give her a prime spot to satisfy her fans, or reduce her role because of her polarizing nature?
You want people to generate interest and passion, said one Republican who has organized conventions before and who, like others, didnt want to be named. Sarah Palin goes to a very small segment, relatively speaking, of the Republican Party. And youre trying to put together a rainbow coalition. (Democrats faced a similar situation in 1992, when then-Gov. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania was denied a speaking role, he believed, because he opposes abortion rights.)

What convention? I guarantee it will have the lowest ratings ever.
That being said, they will allow one token conservative to speak. One token conservative that they can control.
they are scared to death of her......if they don’t invite her to speak I will find a way to make them pay......
Speaks to a “small segment” they better be careful or 20 million GOPers will stay home.
Even the Romneys and Bushes are not that crazy...
You give the GOP too much credit. Never underestimate the stupidity of RINOs when they’re in “stampeed” mode.
Yeah I can see the Romney team doing that. They probably figure that the conservatives will be over their anger by the time the election occurs. Why not? they’ll figure, it’s not like there is a different more viable third party candidate.
If they do not let Sarah speak, and speak freely, then it is damning evidence that they want Obama to win and the country to fall to the Marxists. There can be no other explanation.
I want Sarah and the Tea party to start a new party now more than ever
Yet another reason why I am no longer a Republican.
Wait until Ann Coulter and Christy Creme get it on right on the stage...since she is so bat crazy about him
...Lisa Murkowski, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Marco Rubio (coddling naive conservatives), both senators from Tennessee...
The Bush’s and Romney’s FEAR of Palin is why We the People are stuck with Bammy in the first place....
They would campaign more viciously against We the People than ANY Democrat or Communist out there.
We already know that it was the Romney aides in the McCain camp trashing Sarah (those anonymous sources) for Romneys future ambition. He and the Estblishment are batsh*t enough to do this and expect conservatives to get in line.
...Mark Kirk, Tim Pawlenty, Mitch Daniels, Michelle Bachmann (on a leash and muzzled), Sam Brownback...
why would odumbney, who won because conservatives SPLIT their vote, not have Sarah speak?....
If they won’t let her speak, and in a good spot then I have no reason to watch it. And even if she does...I don’t know if I can vote for him anyway. Like Rush said long ago...Why not let the Dems take the hit.
Which is why I find it strange that Michele Bachmann endorsed Romney..what, the GOP establishment doesn’t consider her “Too right-wing” yet they have an issue with Sarah Palin? The Romney a-holes who trashed Sarah Palin and worked on the McCain campaign(Wallace and Schmidt) are still working with Romney now so if this is true I bet they have something to do with this
That was a Romney fundraiser’s remarks one month ago:
They want our money but won’t be getting any from me. I gave for the first time EVER in 2008, ONLY because of Sarah Palin, won’t be doing it again, not after the garbage the GOP has pulled. The RNC calls my house sometimes asking for donations, I tell them in the nicest way possible to shove it
How ‘bout Tokyo Rove and Dick Morris?
