The curious thing about USA Today stories is that they appear to be dateless. They could be run on Monday or Thursday of just about any week.

It seems Palin went from she will let her intentions regarding running for the Presidency known by the end of Sept. to not string anyone along.to: NO DEADLINE?I suppose her self appointed campaign managers that post here will all give a new date, as they do every month.

Palin did say what I have been all along.ABO!

If she wasn’t going to run, she would have said so by now. It is all about the proper timing of her announcement to gain maximum affect and giving time for the other contenders to flame out.

She’s missing the Presidency 5 event in Florida this weekend.

It kicks off tomorrow night with the Fox debate, then a straw poll on Saturday.

As they say in the casino ads, how can you win if you haven’t been?

She might take it quite seriously, still. She might have a drop dead date in her mind when she will say she’s a candidate or she’s not. In the meantime, because of her being a Fox News Contributor, this is her way of slicing and dicing to a fine point.

Fox has said to all of them, if you’re a candidate, there’s the door. Gingrich and Santorum walked, Huckabee and Palin stayed. Huck said, I’m not running. Palin said, I’m thinking about it. And she says it again.

Brilliant strategy, or something else?

Stay tuned, if you care...you’re going to have to stay tuned.

I don’t blame her for holding out till the last possible moment. Its ridiculous that a person has to raise nearly a billion dollars to run for president. And to compete against the cheating liberals who will funnel money in from illegal sources, get the dead to vote and have the MSM carry them and cover up any negative stories is a huge task for any person.

If Sarah runs, she’s going to need to really be creative to fight against such odds.

South Carolina is Halloween, plus or minus a day or two.

I was sooooo positive she would enter on Constitution day. But, I figure now she is just letting Perry flame-out, as mentioned here, as much as possible. She quips thruout her interviews, leading me to conclude that its setting up her entry (ie: candidate should be the one most vetted).

She is being prudent by waiting to see who her opponents will be.

She is more ‘plugged in’ than we are and seems convinced the field isn’t settled for either party.

On the gripping hand, it’s pathetic that 1/3 of a presidential term is spent campaigning. $1 BILLION in Obama’s commie war chest?

Watched Sarah on Fox News...thought she looked - and sounded - tired; and so, her offering that she is still ‘considering’ resonated a bit hollow.

Sheriff Arpaio: ‘Maybe I Should Run for President’

by John Hill on SEPTEMBER 19, 2011 in BLOG, NEWS

by John Hill
Stand With Arizona

GOP candidates have been calling and visiting Sheriff Joe Arpaio for 3 weeks now, trying to win his endorsement. So who will he choose? Perhaps no one.

Responding to a question on CNN as to which GOP presidential candidate had the best immigration plan, Arpaio said, “I have my own plan, maybe I should run for president.”

Sounds good to us. Why shouldn’t he run for president? Too old you say? He isn’t too old to crack down on illegal aliens and the businesses that employ them every week in Maricopa – the 4th most populous county in the United States. A tough job for anyone. And besides, Arpaio is only 3 years older than Ron Paul, who has raised millions and who finished 2nd in the Iowa Straw poll.

Of course we don’t expect Joe to run, but it is fun to imagine him as President, or perhaps more realistically Director of Homeland Security. Let’s hope that whoever he chooses to endorse (or does not), a future Republican President would make use of his 57 years of law enforcement experience to help secure this nation, and make workplaces inhospitable for illegal aliens – putting Americans back to work again.

We salute you, Joe!

PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION of $10.70 to Stand With Arizona in honor of SB1070, to help us continue to fight against illegal alien amnesty and push for Arizona-style enforcement laws nationwide: DONATE link. Thank you.

On the one hand, her dithering is off-putting.

If Sarah wasn't going to run, she would have said so a long time ago.

If she had run a conventional campaign and declared two years before the election, the GOP ruling class would have taken her out by now, because to them DC is an exclusive country club that doesn't cotton to outsiders.

The last thing they want is somebody coming in and rocking them right out of their cushy little boats.

In order to win the nomination, she has to outwit and outmaneuver them.

The alternative is another candidate chosen by Karl Rove and company.

Watching her on Hannity, when she again deterred from saying one way or the other and put any decision off into the further undefined future, I saw a sadness in her, that was much different from her demeanor before having to answer that question.

That sadness showed me that she sees this window of opportunity closing and for whatever reasons still remains unprepared to step into the breach.

A year ago, the conventional wisdom was that Sarah would dominate the primary if she declared as a candidate, but could never win a general election. This article seems to be saying that it is the opposite now. If she were the candidate, she has a solid chance of beating Obama, but she can’t win the primary now. Interesting...

Big freaking Whoop.I have been to two, and it was good to meet lots of other Republicans, but they stack the deck ahead of time. The Chairman of the RPOF just died and we are still trying to recover from The Jim Greer and Charlie Crist overspending debacle from the last one. It is meaningless because you cannot vote for Palin or even People that have declared like Mccotter.

Last time I checked Sarah doesn’t get on Fox news every day and tease us on whether she’s running or not. More like she is constantly being asked and speculated about whether she is going to run. It is not her ginning up the controversy, and it’s not her stringing people along.

And people here fall for it.

U R exactly correct.

She is not having to spend any money. She appears on Fox News for FREE (I mean while being PAID). She is in the news (FOR FREE) whenever she wants to be. She doesn't have to respond to idiots like McGuiness. Other candidates are failing and putting their feet in their mouths on a regular basis, she isn't. She stays above the fray. No federal campaign reporting. The field narrows while she waits. Waiting, so far, has been mostly positive for her, a win.

Is anyone going to watch the upcoming debate? I'm not wasting my time. Been there done that. The only thing that can happen to you on this debate are NEGATIVE. If you are not yet a candidate you can avoid the opportunity to make a gaff in a meaningless debate. I won't watch another debate until Sarah (the next president of the United States) Palin is in it.

Has anyone watched Undefeated? People who put Sarah down are buying into a big lie. I realize the media really is scared of her because she has what it takes to change the country away from what Obama is doing. The movie goes into detail all the things she did in Alaska. I challenge ANYONE who lets the national socialist media think for them regarding Sarah, to watch this movie & see if their mind is changed. I liked her before the movie, now I respect her more than any person in political office. Now I'm so angry that after all she has done she is criticized, and it's all lies. 14 lawsuits, she had to pay attorney fees. Every single one was thrown out. What surprises me is how so many people, especially men fall for the lies. In the movie these men were called eunuchs, because if nothing else they could not stand up and defend her against such vitriol; It was easier to join the hate crowd. It will take someone who stands up and speaks against the media and the special interest.... to get this country where it should be. I don't see the passion and fire for doing what is right in any of our current candidates. Some know how to throw a punch, but for what? To help themselves win, not for us.
