She wasn’t invited. All told, I think she’s being quite gracious about having been slapped in the face.
She has been very enthusiastic about Ryan and endorsed both of them yesterday.
She was the VP candidate the last time around, after all, and they should at least be courteous and invite her.
That said, members of polygamist sects have problems dealing with independent women, and I think Romney is displaying this and should reassess his behavior right now. He’d do himself a serious favor by asking her to speak, and if nothing else, he should remember that she has a lot of devoted followers and he doesn’t, so he needs them.
Sorry, Romney, like Obama, thinks you can buy all the followers you need.
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.
There's a good chance you're right about the "independent women" and "serious favor" aspects; and thanks to that plus RINOs taking Sarah down, Romney might not make it on the first ballot.
That's my hope, and I'm looking forward to seeing Sarah surge.
We shall see.
