Unbelievable!!! I saw an estimate of 15 million but 17 million in 40 days others had 90 days.

If money can buy votes than it’s gonna be 4 more years of Obama.

The world has changed IMHO-more free Internet and conservative radio are the King Makers.

Palin will get a lot of smaller donations from people like me. She will have broad backing around the country, but I don’t think she will have the dollars that corporatist candidates like Perry and Romney pull in.

Yes as a matter of fact, I did.

I donated to Rick Perry and I’m not done yet.

Well, he did say that he was insulted that it was insinuated that he could be bought for a mere $5000. He wasn’t offended at the idea that he could be bought, mind you, but that he could be bought for a mere $5k.

You have a point.

The Rovian puppets (Perry and Romney) are tied
to the hip to Soros and Sharia.
Doubtful that any conservative would receive
donations from such manipulators and slavers.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Friday during a visit to the Iowa State Fair that she still sees room for more Republican presidential candidates and will decide whether to run by September.

I just heard not but two or three weeks ago that it was vitally important who gets the money in the early stages. Sounds like his getting in late didn’t matter as he knows where to get the money OR a lot of people are betting on him still. :)

Merck Schmerk... all politicians get money from Merck. and dio.. your tricks again are not going to get Ron Paul elected....

Salon.com recently pulled a neat little trick, one that is currently paying great dividends The liberal mega-site recently ran a piece that essentially accuses Governor Rick Perryz of being a “pro-Sharia candidate” (complete with a ridiculously crude photoshopped image of Perry standing next to a Muslim crescent). Of course, the title of the piece, “Rick Perry: The Pro-Sharia Candidate?” ends with a question mark. Ha ha! It’s not an accusation – it’s just a question! Aren’t we clever, Salon.com.

Q: When is a good time? Do you have a timeline?

Palin: I have said that that August/September timeframe is important for logistical and legal reasons to jump in there, but…

Q: So by next month?

Palin: I think that just practically speaking that has to be kind of a drop dead time. Also, in fairness to supporters, who are standing on the timeline, and this is what I have told Todd over and over again, I don’t want to be seen as or perceived as stringing people along, asking supporters, ‘Oh don’t just jump in there on someone else’s bandwagon because I may jump in, so hold off a little bit.’ That is not fair to them. After another month or two goes by, they need to know who it is that they can jump behind. Now more than ever, everybody has got to get involved in this 2012 election. They need to get out there and campaign for their chosen candidates, its all the more reason to hurry up and decide.

A few moments later, there was this exchange:

Q: Will you know by the next time you are here in Iowa whether you will be in, over Labor Day?

Palin: I doubt it. By the next time I am here by September 3? I don’t know if within the next couple of weeks I will be ready for an announcement or not.

Q: So the end of September is no longer a viable deadline?

Palin: No, he was asking about my next visit here on September 3, if I would be ready for an announcement September 3. And I said I don’t know if I would be ready by September 3.

Q: So the end of September would still be your timetable?

Palin: That is still a possibility for a timetable. Yes, definitely.

More importantly, I imagine, is the amount he is able to raise in the next 4 weeks - prolly see a major drop-off... unless those oversea funds keep rolling in.

I don’t know about that...I think those of us who go to conservative sites or listen to radio may be overestimating our clout. That is, we have clout if we can project general ideas (small government, free economy, respect for traditional family and social life in the US, etc.) but when we get into our particular obssessions that only a “vanity candidate” can agree with us on, we lose people and look like the nutcases of the past who made a candidate’s stand on fluoridation seem to be the crucial thing. And that’s the part that is magnified by the press and people on the outside, of course.

So I agree with you on the one hand that there’s more exposure to conservative positions now (which is precisely the reason Obama is always trying to control the Internet and radio), but we have to be careful to keep our focus on the principles.

Otherwise we’ll get Romney as the GOP candidate, because he has much more money than anybody else (and is willing to throw in a lot of his own personal money, which Perry can’t equal) and he’s the one the press is promoting. Even the WSJ this morning had some stupid article about how Christie’s decision not to run means that the slot is now Romney’s. Sigh.

The good news is that Perry raised $17 million. The bad news is that he will soon be making a fool of himself again in a nationally televised debate.

You can bet that the majority of Perry’s money came from Texas mega donors.

“So we just replace the Chicago way with Texas way? Same, same.”

No, when Cook County politicians engage in “pay to play” they are dishonest and corrupt. When Texas politicians do it, they are just being “good ol’ boys” and “Wheeling and dealing.” at least in the eyes of Perry supporters.
