I think the primaries are being moved up to force Palin to declare sooner than she intends...
10/01/2011 | E. Pluribus Unum

Posted on 10/01/2011 9:31:37 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

I believe that the ruling class politicians see Palin as a real threat to their status quo, and her postponement of announcing her candidacy as a hindrance to their stopping her.

One way to force her hand earlier than she intends is to move up the primaries.

Anybody else see a pattern here?

Those with money will do well in primary.
It will be difficult for Palin to setup organisation and win.

The party elitists are farmmore threatened by the tea party than by Palin. This is an attempt to marginalize the grassroots.

I love her but her last statements were embarrassing and I do not believe she is prepared.

Running for President of the United States is not a mere “title”.

Primaries are not being moved for her, nor does the Earth spin for her.

Governor Palin will be the next President if she wants.

All of the attempts by Romney to shift primaries
will fail.

The elites of both parties certainly hate her. But they won't manipulate her. They can try though.

And the press is doing it's best to create Palin fatigue by hammering "will she/won't she". There are Freepers falling for it so the press DOES still have power no matter how much conservatives deny it. They're falling right in line.

Mitt was the one who pressured FL officials to move up their date knowing that the other states would move theirs up as well...he’s trying to shorten the season for a knockout punch....i don’t think its going o work

If she has no intention of running, than she is basically playing games with her supporters.

I don't think she plays games with people.

If you do, then I don't understand why you would "love" her or support her in any way.

Just saying.

What makes you think that she DOESN’T have things set up? Because the press didn’t report it? Why would she tell them anything?

Who cares? If she was interested in getting in, she’d have gotten in. The field, while maybe not “set” is satisfactory.

If she gets in (big whoop) I say she polls no higher than 4th until she sets foot on a debate stage and has to go through what all of the others have been going through.

For months now.

I agree she’s not running. That being said I like her also but I’m losing some respect for her as she is becoming a distraction to our real candidates. This hold out on her part is about her staying in the spotlight not about the nation getting rid of Obama.

There is a fight over the primary times every year. Each state wants to be early, because the politicians will spend more money in those states. Usually, the RNC defends the status quo. In fact, Florida has been thrown out for trying this before, I believe, on the Democrat side.

So, this means nothing. What will be interesting and significant is if the RNC breaks its usual behavior pattern and lets Florida or some other states do it. Because normally they defend the current primary order, since it is heavily front-loaded with liberal cross-over states.

Those debates are setups by the left and the others "go through all that" because they are too stupid to pick and choose. They play the lefts game and get hammered. How is that Palins fault?

Candidates should REFUSE until the left gets serious about honest debates.

I agree....she isn't running and when I last saw her on Greta she didn't sound like someone who ought to run. Don't need a “title”? “shackles”? How many serious candidates would think of the title of POTUS being too shackily?

Besides she was talking up Herman.

Hopefully she will continue to influence policy.

“So which is it? Do you like her or think she’s a user? It can’t be both.”


Yes it can be both really. It works like this. Any politician, even the rare honest ones like Sarah, must keep their options open to run even though there may be only the slightest chance of running. I think in her case she has known from the start that the chance of her running was very very low, like 5%, but still possible if the stars were to align just right. You can’t fault her for that, it’s just the way national politics works. At some point however a potential candidate must say “I’m not running” or risk looking like a loose cannon that can’t be trusted to support the party. She is dangerously close to losing the trust of the conservatives that supported her up until now. It time for the game playing to end.

OK folks, use you HEADS for a minute...

Given the timing of the release of the McGinnis book, and yesterday’s movie “Sarah Palin-You Betcha!” by the Palin-hating Daily Kos Left, Sarah is looking like a FREAKING GENIUS.

Had she declared before now, she would be forced to deny the allegations made in these, lies or not, and it would be the ONLY thing the press would be covering, SNL and the Daily Show would be running endlessly with it, and the Late Night Comics would have had a field day...

If you don’t think the timing of these releases was designed to DESTROY her, you haven’t been paying attention.

Why, whatever was I thinking?
