Skip to comments.Team Palin says Rove may be a bit off
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.
Keep 'em guessing ..! In God's time and your time.
Statement here on her website
Karl ‘Porky Pig Face’ Rove is just worried that he won’t be invited to the cocktail parties in DC after Sarah is elected.
The CNN article she praised
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.
“lost in the Rove buzz is the reality that he and the former Alaska governor are not exactly close. “
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.
Yeah, we don’t really go for name calling here on FR (even if it is true.)
But just be patient. Sarah is driving the media crazy, and we should be loving it, not attacking each other.
a pr*ck w/ears, period
It really is a sight to behold how this private citizen (at least for now) drives people like you, Karl Rove, and Demokrats crazy. Nice company you keep.
I think you’re right.
We can be sure she’s praying heavily on it.
It’s a forever life changing decision.
A deliberate attempt by Karl the Karrot to sour voters on the only choice we have in 2012.
Yeah, we dont really go for name calling here on FR (even if it is true.)
I was overcome...but you are correct, using that term was inappropriate. My apologies if i offended anyone.
Three words I thought I'd never see here on FR!
What's next? Mitt's da bomb. :-)
>> “The article seems to hint that she’s NOT running.” <<
No, just that she is not going to announce on 9-3-11.
I pointed out that the article hints that she's not running, and you showed yourself to be a member of the small but vocal 'idiot' wing of Sarah's following who regularly insults people who are not interested or have little patience in the waiting games she's playing. Predictable.
Does Politico have their own building or do they just work out of the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters?
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.
Rove has been a bit “off” since the 2010 election. Not sure that he can or will regain our respect.
I know you didn’t ask me, but YES, you can say that! LOL
Pollutico works out of the Democratic National Committees toilet.
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.
Well, we knew this was a setup and we were right. My bet is Wasilla. It’s Sarah through and through. When she announces, she’s gonna be at home. And I don’t think she is gonna disappoint us on the third either.
He’s real pouty and vengeful, since his true colors and character were laid bare naked for conservatives to discover.
Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Charles R Heath, born in ID
Sarah Sheeran, born in WI
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Why would she drive me crazy?

Hmmm, so those of us who support Sarah are members of “the small but vocal ‘idiot’ wing of Sarah’s following who regularly insult people who are not interested...”
“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.”
“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.
Perry was managed by Rove
Well, good for you! You must have been listening to MSNBC. Are you sure you want to be so against the next President?
Hunh? Hard work every day? There is no campaign at present.
I know you didnt ask me, but YES, you can say that! LOL
Why thank you! ;-) LOL
“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?”
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.
No, only the ones whose first instinct is to personally insult anyone who doesn't believe Palin is running. Just like I said. There's about a dozen of them are you just joined the ranks. Congrats.
That there is funny. :-)
I agree, She won’t run.
But she is taking a shot at the “Old Guard” King makers.
She is an ambitious and capable person, but I don’t believe she will run this year.
Yes, that about shows your reasoning...
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?
teasin’ is fine w/me. i only luv it.....but, if our Sarah wasn’t travelin’ around that bus, in IA, i’d wonder too, but she’s been travelin’ in that bus, & you’re just a barkin’ dog, chasin’ the bus. you should learn to appreciate bein’ teased by powerful wimin’....woooweee. and she can field dress a grizzly. and that sincere smile. and our founder’s Conservatism flows from Sarah.
Well, I’m so sorry... I was thinking that you were talking about Perry (different thread). Disregard all previous statements. Need to go to bed...
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.
