Skip to comments.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.
There's nothing to follow up on there Carling, Perry was bought and paid for by the drug company.
Bachmann and Palin are right, end of story.
Because the donation was for six grand?
Makes it a perfect politician's answer........
Selling out means compromising your principles, or compromising what’s right, for personal gain.
And you’ve admitted that she will announce her candidacy, thus admitting she’s not selling anything.
[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? ]
I guarantee Palin’s charge of crony capitalism is sticking. I was ready to put Perry on equal footing with Palin until not only Gardasil showed up but other swirling tidbits. I now suspect RP = GW Bush 3.0
Hey look! The undocumented professor is here!
Send me the lotto numbers since you predict the future so well. And when you get a chance, Prove that “selling a fantasy” bs.
I have nothing!!! I said it COULD be that she is within hours of announcing.
There are some folks, quite a few that believe she may announce on the 17th, Constitution Day. But they are only speculating...She mentions We The People all the time, and has the Constitution all over the bus...
Nobody knows but Sarah and her very close to the vest friends
Inside information? HA! Just California Dreamin’.
Would this be called a bait thread.
Why yes it would.
Gee, I don't know. Perhaps because she is a member of the media who made a baseless claim against an announced GOP candidate for President.
Her paid job is to be a member of the media. Last I knew, media members were supposed to investigate matters and offer proof before smearing public figures.
Does she have a public appearance scheduled for that day? I can’t imagine that she would announce without giving speech, but I could be wrong.
You weren't paying attention. Sarah said she thought a governmental body mandating Gardasil was wrong. That was in 2007.
NOW it comes out that there were:
a) many contributions from Merck to Perry ( admittedly not exactly a smoking gun, though interestingly Merck contributed nothing to Governor Palin), and
b) a link from Perry--->his C.O.S. gets hired by Merck--->then Merck gets unusual special deal from Perry, violating his own stated principles.
a) and b) were NOT what Sarah was referencing when she mentioned 2007, she was addressing the mandating issue.
Baseless? Facts have been posted all over FR yet you remain in denial. Why not go read Dio’s link instead of posting obsessive threads, McGinnis.
I wonder why certain posters aren't starting their posts with "I love Sarah, I really do, but ..." any more.
Without those lead in words of previous bed-rock support for Gov. Palin, the follow-on descriptions of why they can't support her just don't have the same impact.
I always look for those words in posts because then I know I can fully trust what follows them.
THOSE ARE BASELESS FACTS!!!! /s
As FReeper after FReeper has shown you, PerryBOT,
the claim is NOT Baseless.
But the claim exposed baseless RINO behavior by
the RINO Rick.
Why don’t you just ignore the posts with the data
and have another beer?
Would this be called a bait thread?
It’s about Gardasil, or whatever else the Palinistas think they can hurt Perry with. It’s a tough news cycle. Then it’s over. Perry has had this $hit thrown at him for ten years and always comes out smelling like a rose. Palin, on the other hand, got $hit thrown at her and bailed. Now she rides around in a bus paid for by people who have misplaced faith in her that she’s going to ride in and “save” something, throwing rocks from the edge of the debate, and losing support by the day. All while legitimate candidates are fighting for us, and all capable of flattening Obama. That’s what it’s about.
Why thank you. You see this old man here is a little thick at times. :)
I think she’s intentionally messing with your head, Carling. You must have pissed her off with your rants. Ooops...
Funny post from the supporter of a part time governor who promised his electorate he would not be running for president.
A $5,000 campaign contribution buys and pays for a candidate? DAMN! I’m gonna buy myself one. Who needs to be president when you can buy one for that cheap? I pay more than that in school taxes. Bet if I bought a politician I could get that bill cancelled! You are so smart, Cajun.
I’m with you entirely.
(But I can’t prove it.)
The second part is a private joke.
As Mark Steyn says, “Everything before the BUT is Bull. “
Damn you. Now everybody knows. LOLOLOL!!!!!!
One mean nasty mother that Sarah......
If he doesn't get it from us, he'll get a worse one from the Democrats
Is that you Geoff?
I haven’t “admitted” she’s announcing. I know she’s not. You are delusional and I feel sorry for the day you realize she’s really not running. It’s going to suck to be you.
Sorry I have no idea...I thought she said by the end of Sept, only about 15 days to go. I am not holding her to that, but some folks are, she mentioned October once also I thought?
I am with her no matter when, but am worried about the band wagon jumpers, if Sept comes and goes without an announcement
Oh Norman. You are so pitiful.
Like the Obamas, the RINO Perry and his wife shall decide, right?
By Gore, that is RINOhood.
"Rick supports me. "
The crazy thing is that Sarah Palin is being vetted right now on FR because of her words Monday by fellow conservatives, and her Palin-only supporters don’t even realize it.
That’s what is insane to me. If Sarah has the goods, SHARE THE GOODS ON PERRY. Instead, we’ve had silence for two days after she broke the 11th Commandment of Reagan.
You mean it’s wrong for her to speak the truth about Perry, but it’s OK for all the Perry guys to attack her?
This kind of stuff really doesn’t help Perry.
Who brought Bill Clinton into this conversation? Oh, you mean Perry.......nevermind.
Sarah’s going to be busy with this stuff:
And here’s one poll about Bachmann:
On Gardasil and Texas, Bachmann:
Nailed It 17 %
Went Too Far 83 %
No, only when you post them.
Which is, of course, why she's your favorite topic of discussion, and why you simply cannot take your attention off her - even with major scandals about Obama breaking this very day.
You're either nuts, or you work for someone. I'm leaning towards the latter.
Won’t be any Palin run. Quit fantasizing.
Sarah has Fred’ed too long.
Oh D, you’re such a troll.
Yo dude. Your two choices aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive...
Axelrod placed more Perry haters on high alert ?
Or are you a Romney bot troll ?
You know, it was kind of busy today, having to contend with a big batch of all-out character-assassination courtesy of that slimeball McGinniss, and all the putrid souls around here that pretty much took his word at face-value. Yeah, accusations of hardcore dope use and promiscuity. Real cute stuff.
So, taking that into consideration, and instead of getting involved in another inane Palin-Perry food-fight (which seems the only goal), I think I’d just prefer to cut things short and say to all you Palin-bashers one thing for the evening... you can all go burn in hell. thank you.
I’ll take ‘nuts’ for $200, windflier. Wait, make that $5000.
