Skip to comments.The Big Tease. Sarah won't commit - but is still the life of the Party
Posted on 09/05/2011 10:41:59 PM PDT by Clairity
A coy Sarah Palin talked a lot yesterday about the type of leader this country needs, but in what is turning into an extended national tease, she stopped just short of saying she will be that leader.
"I don't know yet," Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate turned best-selling author, told the Herald yesterday after her rousing midday speech at a Tea Party Express rally.
A fed-up Victor Luebker of the Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots [team stats] - a group of former military men and women who support the Tea Party's platform - said he's tired of Palin's games.
"She needs to declare and decide now," said Luebker, who did not attend the event. "The Tea Party is not a movement to sell books or make news for the sake of attention; we have serious issues facing our country."
Others, though, say they'll wait as long as necessary for Palin.

It’s not a smear when you can reason. You think she would allow a movie to be made about her without knowing exactly how it would be used? Seriously, she would be dumb not to have it spelled out in a contract on just how her soon to be trademarked self would be used in a film maker’s movie.
Opposing points of view should be tolerated, profanity should not be tolerated.
Frankly, I'm sick of the pro-Palin forces repeatedly posting lies about Perry. Do you really think posting lies about Perry is going to get Palin in this race?
When this is over, we all need to be on the same page.
You have made it your mission to troll Palin threads in order to smear and incite. It says a LOT more about you than it does anyone else. You are a child that wants to pee in somebody elses pool. Grow up.
Jim isn't a moderator. He is the OWNER! And you are constantly crapping on his site with your outlandish smears. You call Palin every name known to man that is insulting. You troll threads consistently. I wouldn't.
And I’m sick of Perry supporters posting lies about Palin and then complaining when everybody doesn’t support Perry.
It’s common sense for a person in her position to want to maintain control of how her image and likeness is used.
I’m not smearing her but stating that it’s a smart move to ensure that she controls the outcome.
You know DJ, I can’t help it if you have a hard time understanding how discussion forums operate. In order to have a healthy and long lasting forum there has to be debate. If there is none people move on out of boredom.
Why not join a Sarah Palin fanclub for uninterrupted gushing. Politics isn’t about 100% agreement. It’s about discussing issues, differences of opinion, figuring out how to work together even if you don’t agree 100% with the other side because ultimately that is what we have to do in order to have a free and democratic society.
The need for some to control what others think and post is not the actions of free speech supporters. I would rather be a part of a society that is open to discuss things than one where only one way of thinking and believing is acceptable.
I also believe Palin is not being honest with her fans and is stringing them along. So what? Beyond that, I have an opinion and frankly, if it weren't for the crappy things I see repeatedly said about Perry by the fanatical Palin supporters, I couldn't care less.
If Palin decides to run, fine, I don't care. She isn't going to go anywhere. I can read the polls and I talk to people.
Smears aren't debate. You post the same slams over and over, even after the truth has been pointed out to you. That is not debate. And you cannot disguise it as such.
My problem is far less with Palin than with her supporters like you that call others names. I am not a troll. (Kinda reminds one of "I am not a witch, doesn't it?)
Do you weigh less than a duck?
Debate is a two way street! I don’t agree with a lot of what Palin has done since she quit and if she wants to be the POTUS then by God we better have the freedom to discuss those decisions she’s made.
That’s not smearing but simply not falling lock step in with sycophantic fans!
Your name-calling and smears are legion. You have accused Palin of "hustling" people, being a back-stabber, being a professional victim, brainwashing, being "all talk and no show", and for some reason, making money honestly is wrong.
I do believe this poll. Palin only got less than 35 votes at the Iowa Straw Poll out of nearly 17,000 cast and its getting harder and harder to take her seriously as a possible candidate with each passing day. Shes playing you.
their girl is not running and she has had a nice little thing going for her but her crowds are starting to dwindle. She knows she cant win and hasnt even put into place the beginnings of an infrastructure. Shes all talk and no show.
Poor Sarah Palin, she was so victimized she now makes $12 million a year. This woman is crying all the way to the bank and yet the Palinistas here on FR still want to portray her as some kind of victim. A victim, she is not. '
The smears that you're sharing have been posted and debunked for 3 years. Doing it AGAIN is NOT debate.
So what, all of this is true.
Remember when Rove said Palin needs to develop a thicker skin? I think you are the one who needs a ticker skin. You can dish it out but you don’t want to take it.
Ive already put a couple notorious thumpers on notice that if theyve not already been zotted before hand, the day she announces and theyre continuing to trash her, they get the zot. Guaranfreepingteed!
Just this am, someone lied and said I was willing to tolerate corruption as long as it was by a Republican. I don’t like being lied about. I didn’t go whining to the moderator because someone lied about me, and I won’t. I’m a big girl and I can take it.
But it’s OK with you if others trash Perry? Why? How does this help Palin?
