“Sarah speaking at romneys convention would be like Led Zeppelin opening for the Monkeys.”
As much as I truly dislike Obama and his Administration, Gov. Romney and his Party are going to have to earn my support. Again, predicated on whether this story is correct, such an omission would be counter productive in firming up the base, more like a slap in the face to many Conservatives.
Thats because she will outshine them- the applause would be awesome, and make MILT and RYAN look worthless
I don't watch a bunch of things. State of the Union Show? Nah. Presidential speeches? Why bother? I get plenty of info right here.
“As much as I truly dislike Obama and his Administration, Gov. Romney and his Party are going to have to earn my support”
Exactly, Romney may get my vote. But i won’t give it if i’m being insulted BEFORE the election. And insulting Sarah in any way tells me exactly what he thinks of me.
Mr. RomneyCARE has a history of abusing
Gov. Palin through surrogates,
so this is a big mistake on HIS part.
Also, Mr. RomneyCARE represents DEATH PANELS, and
she named them. So, this is a swing to the support
of RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE/DeathPanels by the GOPe.
Agreed. And as i said, sometimes i do think ABO. I think Obama intends to move into the full revolutionary endgame. But if we cannot influence Romney GOPe now, why would we be able to after the election.
His treatment of Sarah is my canary in the coal mine. Sometimes, in quiet moments, i think it would be nice to kill the GOPe now. Then run someone conservative in 2016.
Reuters is just trying to stir up anger as usual.
I like the way you think.
Or make her the deregulatory czar across all agencies.
She’s NOT going to be on Greta tonight. Check the date on that second GretaWire post.
True. It’s just weird in a way to now be breaking such a longstanding habit of watching the convention, which goes back so many decades with me. But I used to watch them as they would reinforce a certain kinship with those who I felt shared my values/beliefs and staunchly opposed the bulwark of encroaching socialism and the cultural, social and economic decay it was bringing. But with figures like Romney in the forefront and Rove in the background, coupled with the kicking of Palin and the Tea Party to the curb, it’s just more than apparent I no longer have anything in common with what the GOP now stands for. No kinship, no nothing.
Sorry for the bad tip, if that is wrong.
Exactly, and it's a very bad idea letting McCain speak.
My hotair (headlines) comment on this:
You are kidding me. She is the best speaker we got, and she would bring a huge audience. If they wont let her speak, I think there will be hell to pay.
Mitt seems intent on dissing the base. I thought Ryan spelled the end of that chapter of Mitts campaign, but now I hear that campaigning today Mitt was walking a fine line and wouldnt say whether he supported Ryan on medicare, but wouldnt give his own position either. Im so tired of the vapid ideology free zone that will lose the election.

i thought we disposed of all those ‘sarah quit’ dinks a long time ago....but like zombies they escape from their padded cells and roam around till we stake em out again...haaaahh oh well...
You are correct. I wonder why she is leaving that thing front and center with that 7/31 date on it...... The page has 08 12 2012 in the upper right hand corner.
“Palin will not speak at Republican convention”
Perhaps I’m impertinent for asking, but...
... is not Mrs. Palin under contract with Fox News as a commentator?
If so, why can’t she join the Fox folks in their booth, carrying Fox credentials (surely, this would guarantee her admission into the arena)?
There, she can speak as much as she wants!
Reuters is just trying to stir up anger as usual.Conservatives4Palin is buying it
Governor Palin wont be giving a speech at this years Republican National Convention. Via Gretawire :
I would like to see her as a senator.
The coy style is getting old..If she doesn’t speak I really believe it was HER choice. And she should speak if its a Republican convention and she supported Rep senate and congress candidates.
to not speak is like ‘sour grapes”. I agree with the other poster that says she needs now to run for soemthing, like senate or such, unless she has the inside deal on a post in the romney admin promised if he wins.
If she is serious, she could run for something and be a Senator. Sidelines are ok for awhile, but then after awhile, she becomes just another moderator.
Sarah Palin has her Sarah PAC hopefully she will take the place of that friend of islam Grover Norquist. Come on conservative groups, dump the traitor and go to Sarah’s corner.
And just think, if you had sent her $2 or $3 million dollars to defend herself from malicious, unsubstantiated lawsuits filed by Obama operatives, she’d still be in office.
As the greatest female speaker in American history and the leader of the conservative, Reagan wing of the GOP, she needs to speak to her party and to the nation.
While I agree with everybody in spirit....it was Palin who became a reality star with her tv show....it was Palin who had a movie made about her, did a patriotic bus tour and THEN once the dvd was released, decided not to run. It was Palin who went on SNL and gave the libs credibility...instead of fighting back and defending herself. It was Palin who received a multi million dollar contract on Fox News to be a commentator/guest speaker........in every decision she has made since running for VP, she has never decided on running for office or assuming any position within politics or the RNC. If you look at this objectively, it comes as no surprise.
I don’t think McCain would be very gracious if he wasn’t invited to speak.
You sir, are an idiot.
Now they are saying she was invited to speak, but declined. “it’s unclear whether she would have had a prominent role”
I think there is some damage control going on. People on Twitter are ticked off that Sarah is being given the shaft by Mitt/RNC/GOP.
We should know in about 5 minutes.
Sarah needs to have her own big fund raiser in an auditorium, maybe with Glenn Beck. Then she can invite Romney, Ryan to speak before a HUGH crowd of thousands of real conservatives. They will have to start appealing to the conservative crowd and that would be something to watch. This is what our side has to do. You notice how the NAACP, LaRaza and other liberal groups invite everybody to speak before their big get togethers. That is a subtle way of putting pressure on the guest. Conservatives should start using this technique, it is a way of flexing political muscles as the guest is on the inviting groups home turf and is at a disadvantage. Conservatives have to use power more effectively.
I would be surprised is Sarah isn’t a total class act. Doubt we will know the truth tonight. All I know is that Mitt fans on Twitter are slamming Sarah because ‘she didn’t endorse Mitt, or use his name, so she hasn’t earned Mitt’s respect.’
I slammed a few Mitt Bots. I think we are all being played by Mitt/Rove/GOP just like we have been this whole primary.
I bet a cheeseburger she and Bush were persuaded to stay away from the GOP-e big top. If Palin wants to stay in the club, she needs to go along.
Sarah Palin should have a huge gathering Glenn Beck style and show the RINOS the power of the other Republicans—the real patriots.
The same anti-Palin rant over and over and over from you. You are a bore and she is the exact opposite! She didn’t disappoint her supporters, she still has them. YOU have NONE!
Well nothing on here. (West coast)
Greta is not on here on the East coast either. Update on the Twitter stuff: BIG TIME slamming of Palin by Mitt people. There is no doubt they want her marginalized.
I can't think of anything more stupid for the GOP than to not allow Palin to speak.
Sarah's absence as a speaker will be glaringly apparent. Bad decision.
I don't see the upside.
Oh, I have supporters. Two of them as a matter of fact. One I wear to the gym, and the other in the wash. And trust me, I don’t let them down.
You guys will follow her into the ground. Unless she runs for something, and actually does something for the country, she will be taking tickets at a booth far from the washroom at Dollywood.
Lack of Courage, I’m thinking Obama can lose but Romney cant win.
Gotta’ save room for real Republicans. Like Joe Lieberman.
Wonder how many Doles will speak.
"As I've repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box" -- Sarah Palin
They can’t have her outshining their candidate now, can they? I wonder if Hannity will have her in the booth. Even better, have here there when they cover the RAT convention!
you mean like initiate same sex marriage which you prefer, d*^khead?
Liberalism is dirt - that's in the ground where the maggot romney keeps his supporters and itching to take Obama's spot at his turn to bring America down to.
You are taking tickets for Romney's Evilwood - where Romney appears as the Great Deceiver.
I called this a few weeks back. - romney is right on schedule. He knows he bought his support and lied to get where he is - Palin can't be bought and honest to the core and Americans know it. The closer to the convention, the more trashing of her. There is NO ONE lower than the snake in the grass romney.
Thanks for the update!!
Right now, she is just on the sidelines.
BTW, IMHO, Ryan will get more than Romney when he takes the stage.
What makes you think Romney would offer her a cabinet position when he wont even permit her to speak at convention???
You need to look at all that Gov Palin has done for the Conservative cause before you start spewing your crapola
