Take it for what you will...posted on Mark's page just now: BREAKING: GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN TELLS MARK LEVIN SHE IS NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012.
So very well said, hg.
You cannot be a Kingmaker without power. She threw hers away.
She just threw all her cards on the table and walked away.
A pattern is emerging: When the going gets tough, she gets going.... right the hell outta there.
Not lying to me. It was obvious from the beginning to me. Now it sounds like you are NOW accusing Palinistas of being delusional. Yesterday that would bring charges of being a PDS.
C4P posted a few questions a while back:
Six Clues Palin Is Running For President
Conservatives4Palin ^ | June 30, 2011 | Nicole Coulter
One need only ask some basic questions to determine Mrs. Palins intentions.
1 For what reason would Mrs. Palin insert herself into the 2010 election cycle? Why go out of her way to endorse local candidates all over the United States? And mostly TEA Party and grassroots conservative candidates?
2 For what reason would Mrs. Palin take her entire family on a bus tour of historic sites around the United States? The key here is the BUS. If she wanted to tour these sites, she could easily do it in her family vehicle. Why stir up all the attendant media coverage?
3 For what possible reason would Mrs. Palin need a movie about her political career? Remember, she had her staff approach Mr. Bannon about making some short segments. It was Mr. Bannon who made the decision to make a 2-hour movie, using his own money. Why didnt she just say no?
4 Why is she supporting this movie with appearances all over the United States? What is the point of traveling all over the U.S., generating press coverage everywhere, and shaking hands and speaking with people, voters, in every locale?
5 Why are there O4P organizations in over 30 states, especially in all of the early primary states? Why didnt Mrs. Palin just tell these people to stop? Is she that callous, that she would allow these people to waste their time and energy in this manner?
6 Why does Mrs. Palin, a native and proud Alaskan, with a television series to prove it, need a home in Scottsdale, Arizona? Wouldnt this be a complete jolt to her entire family? Where is Todd Palin going to find work on an oil rig, or pipeline, in Arizona?
Why dont you all just accept that Mrs. Palin is running for the Republican nomination for President, and act accordingly?
If you need an announcement, here is a suggestion: Pretend that she has already announced and act accordingly.
I am totally bewildered by this announcement nonsense. I want someone to give me one, ONE, good reason why a lack of announcement means she is NOT running!
I liked Sarah Palin. I would have voted for her.
But some people are so invested in the Cult that now, with her going 'refusenik', I almost wonder if there will be a 'on-top-of-a-clock-tower-with-a-rifle' news report today.
Shouldn’t you be somewhere taking a bite out of crime?
...it’s your tagline...the Latin...you have it as
‘cogito, ergo Conservitus’ which translates ‘I think, therefore conservative’...firstly, it’s conservatus, not conservitus, and secondly, you’re using the passive past participial form of the verb conservare, which, being passive, requires an auxiliary to function properly, to wit, a form of the infinitive ‘esse’...
...should read ‘cogito, ergo conservatus sum’. That said, I applaud your desire to use Latin...
That’s just ridiculous!
The USA isn’t dependant one one person to save it’s if we are, then it’s too later anyway.
Thank you for the kind words, Norm.
I only posted a couple times after getting the devastating news last night, and I stayed off every Palin thread, afterwards. Thankfully, I missed all of the crowing and gloating by the anti-Palin folks (although I did get a particularly nasty freepmail from one).
Alright friend. We’ll talk more later. I just can’t right now.
Gee who didnt see that one coming
i have predicted for the last year and a half that she would not run but her worshipers refused to accept it.
“Why did she have us wait?”
to keep interest in her which generates publicity for her speeches/books any other show she may have
Okay, you won.
Take your gloating butt back to DU.
We’ve got work to do, and all you’re doing is adding to the noise level.
Your post is part of the reason FR is so wonderful.
Thank you for the smile.
Excellent, Normie. Stay with me, honey.
We (ie, true conservatives) sometimes get all worked up about hot button issues that we tend to lose sight of the bigger picture.
I have even heard a lot of grumbling recently about how some conservatives are sad that they voted for McCain. In the general.
How can that be???
I’m damn proud that I voted for McCain (and my vote counted, as my state went McCain). Well, to put it more accurately, I’m glad that I did what I could to deny obama any EVs (not that I was thrilled with McCain...who could be?). Of course I have never and will never vote for him in a primary.
The sad reality is that obama is evil in the extreme.
Just one case in point.
Remember Elian Gonzales? Yes, we all do. As I understand it, the guy that sort of gave the final go ahead order to send Elian back was......Eric Holder.
Then with the election of obama, he becomes Attorney General of the United States.
And in that capacity, he sets up an illegal and insane policy of putting US manufactured weapons (thousands of them) into the hands of Mexican cartel members. These weapons are then used to kill American border control personnel (something Holder is fine with) and if they are ever confiscated, then Holder can say, “Oh my gosh! Look! These weapons are American!” and thus can begin a new round of infringing on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.
See how all this works?
The Eric Holders of the world, just like the obamas of the world, have to be ousted, and we have the ability to do so.
Say what you want about McCain, but a McCain/Palin administration would not have engaged in this gun running operation. Nor would McCain/Palin have put Eric Holder of Elian fame as Attorney General. America would be MUCH better off with a centrist, or centrist veering left administration of McCain/Palin than the America hating, extreme far left administration that is in there now.
Nor would McCain/Palin have pushed forward the “stimulus” which has been the major drag on the recovery. Most likely, they would have done nothing (gridlock) and...we would now be in a full blown, real recovery.
All of that is to say, elections have massive consequence. We can’t get too worked up about a single issue and say that we are going to sit the election out.
(Not that what happens around here matters in the big picture....obama is going to lose no matter what happens in the GOP primary)
saying she was “fooling” us (implying it was deliberate) isn’t insulting her character?
Spare me the cries of victimhood.
It's a sad thing to see. The whole Cult thing surprises me with each iteration. I supposed it would end with her bowing out, but it's found new territory in the plot adjacent to Barry's kool-aid drinkers.
The primaries are exactly the time to be "purist".
This was utter cowardice. She's a quitter. She cannot finish ANYTHING she starts. She's a total loser. I'm glad she dropped out, because midway into a Presidency, she'd be all like "Presidentin' is TOUGH. I'm outta here. KissKissPoof". This is the mindset of a narcistic, borderline personality who's sole goal is to build up hopes before trashing them. She's a lot richer, personally, though, after cravenly cashing in on her cachet. Wow, what a slimeball. CRAWL BACK TO ALASKA, SARAH.
What gives me the most joy about this is what a disappointment it will be to the Palin haters, who will be deprived of so much of their ugly fun. And I won't have to listen to it.
Hi. I'm hard to lose.
You are correct.
And general elections are for beating the candidate that is furthest to the left. And that is 100% of the time, the democrat.
obama must be defeated; and he will be defeated.
If it is by Cain, I’ll be delighted. If it is by Perry, I’ll be happy. If it is by Gingrich, I’ll be surprised, but also happy. If it is by Romney, well, I’ll be very relieved that obama is gone.
Well you quit her too, so that makes you a quitter as well.
Never put all your eggs in one basket, Laz. Never.
Check out Steve_Seattle. He's convinced this was a brilliant move on her part, because she can groom her image for 2016.
Other people expressed that they will vote for her, anyways.
It's a lot like what I called the Clinton True Believers. One was on Don Imus's show, she called in, and said she didn't believe anything about Monica Lewinski. Imus, laughingly, reminded her that Clinton just admitted it on National TV. Pause. She responds, "Well, I don't believe it anyway. He was forced to say it somehow."
It will be called the Iquitarod.
>>Never put all your eggs in one basket, Laz. Never.<<
Unless you are selling preloaded egg baskets. Then it is a requirement. Always.
“Republicans who are not conservative, not Constitutionalists, and have no courage to stand up and fight - who like to compromise, make nice and be friends with Dems - are worse than Dems.”
But my description above fits Romney to a T. If a Repubs controlled House and Senate and had gutsy Tea Party types they could do a lot of good. Of course I want the freakshow Muzlim evil clown homo commie out of there asap but I do NOT want him replaced with a pile of puke like Romney.
That would be like instead of getting AIDS you get leukemia. Whoop de doo.
You can color me chump for sure..like a fool..I was
Exactly and I remember who the main figures were
and from now on whenever I see them post I will always remember what jackasses they are given a little rope
the zot patrols they had and the glee over it which zapped some decent long term posters was the worst pack behavior I ever saw here
and all for what?
When is the earth going to end??? What am I eating for supper tomorrow night??? I should have listened to you all along, eh???
Who's going to be the next president???
As far as mea culpa’s go, that was OK, other than your little jab at me. As for questioning my “guts”, well, I think it’s obvious that I expressed my opinion quite clearly to Jim, and did not “tweak” him at all. A lot of posters lost my respect over the past two months, and you’re at the top of the list, Norm.
Oh yeah. He and Michelle McCormick moved to Iowa and Palin knew it and didn’t discourage them. She instead fed the frenzy, and it was cruel.
I am wondering today if something in her personal life is about to drop? There may be something happening that would cause a candidate problems and hurt the party, which hasn’t been publicised yet.
I just really can not imagine that Palin would be this heartless and underhanded, to lead so many good people on, and then jerk the rug out from under them. Surely she isn’t this selfish?
Understood you don’t like Romney. Few if any here do. Problem is IMHO, the key here is to get rid of zero and the regime and get as good a conservative as we can get in office.
If you are looking for perfection......good luck.
If it’s not you, then my apologies. I couldn’t figure out from the post if it was an “I told you so” (i.e., that she’s NOT running) or that you were still saying she is running. Which is it?
All of the bad stuff started with the Gardisil smears. Trying to point out facts about the drug was met with insults. After a while, I gave up trying to be reasonable and jumped into the fray. If some FReepers didn’t want to educate themselves on how the FDA approves vaccines and medicines, and continued to post flat-out lies, then those are posters who weren’t worth being reasonable with anymore. We had press releases from known quacks posted as front-page news, solely because it would harm Rick Perry, and it was done by Palin supporters.
I find it funny that the most rabid Palin posters, such as Norm Lenhart, now try to walk back their words and actions from the past month. It happened, and I have a long memory.
I think lots of people would now like an answer to all those questions asked by Conservatives4palin. I hope someone on Fox askes her.
I'm off the Cain bandwagon for several reasons:
2. He remarked that gun control is a state matter when the RKBA is a Constitutional Amendment indicating his lack of expertise.
3. His reaction to the Washington Post hit piece on Perry (the racial slur on the rock) showed no judicial restraint which is necessary for a C.I.C., e.g. the nuclear football.
Its difficult to determine if she would have won or not. No one knows that.
I saw a post earlier on here that alluded to the supposition that conservative women are so jealous of her they would not have supported her.If there is any truth to that it could have been a huge problem.
I really don't know.
The GOP lost its way when they ran Bob Dole in 1996 and undermined the congressional freshman class of 1994. It’s been a party of moderates for 15 years now. Rick Perry is much further to the right of Dole, W. Bush, and McLame, yet even he isn’t pure enough for some. Hell, the Bush family even tried to primary him in Texas last year.
Romney is THE establishment candidate ... PERIOD. Any of the other candidates would be something new, fresh, and much more conservative than the previous DC insiders that we’ve run.
When you consider the litmus test applied by our side to our candidates vs. what the left expects out of their candidates,and the stakes involved, its no wonder there are so many libs elected.
You are right,not much I can say.
Just as he was in 2008.
Time will tell. I am not ready to dump her quite so easily.
You are not a chump. She fed a need we all have for a savior for our nation.
I think the savior is going to have to be each one of us. This just means instead of letting Sarah say what we feel, being our voice; that we will have to speak for ourselves!
