Skip to comments.I think the primaries are being moved up to force Palin to declare sooner than she intends...

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?
I love her, but she has NO inention of running.
I love her, but she has NO intention of running.
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
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.
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?
I think that’s it—it’s a conspiracy against Palin. If it weren’t for this grand conspiracy, she would run, yea, right, Do you also believe in Santa Claus?
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 love her, but she has NO inention of running.”
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.
So how does Mitt get FL to go along with his scheme?
You know that you’ve gone around the bend when you start seeing conspiracy in everything.
You better go check, I think Romney is hiding under your bed.
I hope that you are kidding. Relatively few people care about what Palin does.
indeed ..they have orchestatred the entire GOP process state by state not to find a nominee but to thwart Sarah Palin
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.
