Team Palin says Rove may be a bit off
Politico ^ | 8-22-11 | Maggie Haberman

Posted on 08/22/2011 9:16:28 PM PDT by STARWISE

Add Karl Rove to the list of people Sarah Palin's camp is denouncing.

POLITICO's Juana Summers flags this statement from the Sarah PAC website, which - without naming him - takes an unmistakable swipe at the former White House adviser to George W. Bush:

Three years ago DC pundits predicted with glee the demise of Sarah Palin's political career. This past weekend their tune changed, citing false information that she has made a decision and set a date regarding a future campaign.

Any professional pundit claiming to have "inside information" regarding Governor Palin's personal decision is not only wrong but their comments are specifically intended to mislead the American public. These are the same tired establishment political games that fuel the 24 hour news cycle and that all American's will hopefully reject in 2012, and this is more of the "politics-as-usual" that Sarah Palin has fought against throughout her career.

PS - Kudos to CNN for setting the record straight, and including Governor Palin's own words.

Rove had said on Fox News last weekend that he believed Palin was running, based in part on her schedule in Iowa (as best as I can tell she only has the one, large-scale event in Des Moines scheduled, for Sept. 3).

Peter Hamby of CNN noted earlier that there is not exactly a river of trust between Palin and Rove, but the public pushback was a bit of a surprise.

Karl ‘Porky Pig Face’ Rove is just worried that he won’t be invited to the cocktail parties in DC after Sarah is elected.

Yeah, but she's keeping everyone in the dark, including the poor Freepers who work very hard every day to build up for her supposed campaign. Is that not a political game?

The article seems to hint that she's NOT running.

This is going to be a tough few weeks for her water carriers.

Must have been that pig from Charlotte’s Web in that 4H Exhibition Hall (”Some Pig”). Obviously all those folks weren’t there to see Palin.

Alright Palin get in or get out of the way. This country is just months of having a fiscal stroke and it is likely fatal. This is serious and if your serious Palin stop the BS tease. We don’t have the time for this crap.

Sarah Palin is likely to run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination and doesn’t want anyone to believe that Karl Rove was in any was privy to ‘secret’ information if she announces next month. Rove is exactly the kind of cynical political insider that Palin opposes, which probably generated Palin’s push-back on Rove’s supposed prescience.

But just be patient. Sarah is driving the media crazy, and we should be loving it, not attacking each other.

Ugh. Stop this shite, please. I don't believe Sarah will run, but people who are trashing her on our side for their choice of competitors are sickening. As a disclaimer, I love the Palins, they are genuine article. Sarah is dedicated to a candidate who will defeat Barrack Obama. Now that is something we all should get on board of!

Yep, Rove gave a specific reason why he thought she was running while Levin gave no reason at all when he said he thought she was running. Looks like Levin made Team Sarah happy.

He already knows that Perry won't be inviting him to his inauguration parties or the WH for a beer summit, either.

He's just pissing people off lately, isn't he?

There’s no BS nor tease.

Her announcement strategy is based on her limited finances. If she announces too soon she’ll go bust like Bachmann and Pawlenty have.

Yup, that's right. She may very well announce her run on that day, but Palin made sure Rove does not get any kudos. He is just as much on the dark as the rest of the DC idiots. Rove spent allot of time and money making sure O'Donnell lost in the Mid Terms and he will do the same to try and stop Palin and Perry from being nominated. Rove wants Romney because the Bush's want Romney.

This is 1980 all over again with Reagan winning the nomination and the DC pundits GOP elites hating his winning. They were forced to nominate him so they did and threw Bush in as VP which began the RINO era.

You said:

and...

“This is going to be a tough few weeks for her water carriers.”

Yep, nothing insulting here...just pure, unadulterated objectivity.

And you call us idiots? Sheesh.

No, because she never promised us anything. WE are the ones driving speculation and playing guessing games on her potential announcement. She has done exactly what she said she would, no more, no less.

She is on her timetable. The election happens over a year from now. What’s the rush? You don’t think that a few days/weeks this early in the game are going to make an iota of difference do you? When the political attention span of the average voter, not FR political junkies like us, is measured in days?

It really is amazing to watch you sit here and lecture those of us who support Palin as “idiots” and “water carriers,” and then go on to accuse us of insulting those who don’t support Palin.

Your first comment was condescending and insulting. Maybe you should take your own advice. And yes, I do think Palin drives people like you, Karl Rove and the Democrats crazy.
