Why Hasn't Sarah Palin Followed Up on Her Crony Capitalism Claim Against Rick Perry?

Posted on 09/14/2011 6:46:47 PM PDT by Carling

Curious. It's been two entire days now, and I haven't seen or heard from Sarah Palin on FoxNews explain how she knew something was wrong as far back as 2007.

Well, I guess Gov Palin is waiting for your sage advice. Sorry, but I find it amusing that people still do not get she plays the drum her way.

she knew that Carling had her best interests at heart, so I think that`s it.

Could also be that she is within hours of announcing a run for the US Presidency

Are PerryBOTs playing "Mickey the Dunce" tonight?

"(N)early $30,000 from the drugmaker
since 2000" given to Perry
and "more than $355,000...
to the Republican Governors Association since 2006
which was the year that Perry began to play a prominent role."

Then there was the stock bought and sold, no doubt.

“Opting-Out” of HPV Vaccine WILL NOT WORK
Texas Governor Perry is misleading legislators and families in Texas
by claiming that they will be able to “opt-out” of having their 6th grade daughter
vaccinated with the vaccine for the sexually transmitted virus HPV.
For many families currently, the exemption isn’t worth the piece of paper it is printed on.
Besides the simple fact that parents should not have to get permission
from the state to make informed consent medical decisions
for their own children"

I thought a counter thread about an actual announced candidate was appropriate.

Where has Sarah Palin been the past two days? My guess is polling how badly she damaged herself by her stupid accusation, but that’s just me.

GOVERNOR PALIN: "I was governor of Alaska at the time that that issue came down,
and I told our health and human services department Alaska
was not going to mandate immunizations for our teenage daughters.
And there had to have been something to that whole issue
because it just didn't sound like Governor Perry. Governor Perry was,
you know, the proverbial anti-government type of maverick there in Texas,
and yet on this issue, he decided that he was going to know
better than a parent was going to know in terms of what the health care
or health benefit would be for their teenage daughters.
So I knew there was something to it."

------------------------

Did you watch watch what media commentator Palin said on Monday night? Here is some information for you.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-presidential-primary/181087-palin-takes-aim-at-gop-presidential-candidates?page=2

Palin even went as far as to lend her voice to the charge leveled by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) during the debate against Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R): That he allowed a law to go though requiring HPV vaccinations for adolescent girls because of a $5,000 campaign donation and his relationship with his former chief of staff, who went on to lobby for a pharmaceutical company.

"I knew there was something to it," Palin said of learning while she was Alaska's governor that her Texas counterpart had given the go-ahead to the vaccine. "Now we're finding that now, yea, something was up with that issue. It was an illustration or bit of evidence of some crony capitalism."

I'm just wondering why Palin and Bachmann aren't following up on this charge. Could it be internal polling telling them they actually lost support because of it?

IMO, Palin killed any chance she had of winning any sort of nomination. I'm going to guess we haven't heard from her because she realizes how badly she goofed. Sure, there are 10 or so FReepers who don't see it, but wow, what an error by her if she actually wanted to run for the GOP nomination.

Why should she follow up? It’s Rick who should follow up. It looks like a cozy deal. An unusual special executive order for a company that is VERY VERY special to Perry’s Chief of Staff.

Perhaps it is just the appearance of impropriety, but the appearance is there. Why doesn’t Perry follow up and explain that he has never had a conversation with his COS about his current employment...and release his emails. Sarah’s emails are out there, why not Rick’s?

Sarah Palin, not for sale? That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all night. She’s selling a fantasy to the Palinistas and they are buying it hook, line, and sinker. That’s why she hasn’t admitted she’s not running. When she does, the support dries up and her relevance (what’s left of it) goes away.

As an enabler, you would not see RINO behavior
if it was tattooed to you.

"The vaccine, Gardasil, is manufactured by Merck,
which was represented in Austin by the lobbyist Mike Toomey,
who was chief of staff for Mr. Perry from 2002 to 2004. "


2007
On 2/7/07, the WSJ reported that Merck was desperate for cash.
With estimates that the settlements Merck will owe for its Vioxx litigation
will amount to approximately $970 million, and the expiration of some of its patents,
Merck faces a huge cash flow problem.
But if Gardasil is mandated, Merck will generate sales of approximately
$1 billion in the first year alone, with 5 year revenue projections of up to $4 billion"


2007
In 2007, when Texas governor Rick Perry issued
an executive order that all girls entering the 6th grade
would receive Gardasil, parents were furious.
Some argued that the vaccine would promote promiscuity.
The order was eventually overturned."

If you saw her Iowa speech or heard her speak, she’s said dozens of times that you don’t need a title to make a difference. Right out of the gate at her TEA party speeches she’s said that it’s up to us to hold our elected officials and candidates accountable. There’s no need for her to repeat herself when the rest is up to us.

“I haven’t seen or heard from Sarah Palin on FoxNews explain how she knew something was wrong as far back as 2007.”

She probably knew back then the same way Perry now knows, after he figured it out a few years later.

Didn't have to be Kreskin or Sherlock Holmes to realize something was wrong with Perry's mandate back in '07. You do know that this has been a news story since Febuary of 2007? Maybe she saw it on John Gibson's Fox show, The Big Story 2/06/07.

Good point. I also think both Bachmann and Palin are seeing some negatives attached to them in their internal push polling data.

If it had impact, and if Palin was going to run, she would jump in right now. Instead, Gardasil becomes an old issue. I honestly think she just spoke something she wasn’t really convinced of without knowing the ramifications. She campaigned for the guy, yet she knew he was corrupt?
