he totally lied just like he lied to Levin about Todd Akin getting money from the RNC. What a piece of crap he is.
Let's face it, with Palin on the ticket we lost the Southern vote which we always had, she may be influential in some areas, but she is very decisive in others. Her one liners are old, her message is shallow, and after all this time, she still has not learned much about the current affairs plaguing this nation. She needs to go back to Alaska and get out of the way. Paul Ryan is flying at 35,000 feet over her head.
What? You are suffering cognitive dissonance?
Palin rocks the South, as evidenced in her 75% successes in endorsements. Newt vanquished Romney in all counties during the South Carolina primaries after Sarah & Todd' endorsement. No one has done more to get Tea Party Conservatives elected than she has over the last 4 years. No one....
Palin draws the crowds like no other in the party
VP Palin (AK) 30,000 - VP Ryan (WI) 10,000 in Wisconsin (3x's)
VP Palin (AK) 60,000 - VP Ryan (WI) 10,000 in Florida (6x's)
Congressman Ryan less popular than Governor Palin August Poll shows....
Governor Palin still most popular figure in the GOP March 2012 Poll says...
2012 Aug 22 - Conventions Still Draw Sizable Audience, Boost Campaign Interest - "...Palin's speech highlight of 08 event..."
Romney and Ryan have a right to put their own image on the Party. Palin is a force for good, but should continue her good work helping Congressional candidates, and accept Romney as the leader of the GOP.
Sarah Palin is the most influential conservative leader since the days of Dwight Eisenhower, the first President for whom I voted, even including Barry Goldwater who was a pretty decent chap. If the Romney crowd is trying to blow off Sarah and the Tea Party, they are making a terrible mistake, because the consequences would turn out to be terrible not only for us, but also for our great grandchildren!
To get Obama out we'll have to vote for the candidate that is running, even if he were a dog with a broken leg!
Isaac Poses Potential Problems for RNC Reince Preibus
-------------------- This will give Evangelicals heart attacks :)
Issac, SON of SARAH
The entire base of Evangelicals is not with you 100%, you lost the entire south for a reason that seems to escape you. If you believe that "..oh they'll come around, they have no choice..", NO THEY WON'T, not in the numbers they would for a "genuine conservative", they will stay at home.
Andrea Saul, Romney campaign spokesman, who shilled against the "you killed my wife ad" with the slap in the Tea Party's face that Romney Care would have solved that problem! PATHETIC
What part of that "Come to Jesus Moment' did you not understand presumptive nominee, Willard Mitt Romney? Politically tone deaf?
Time to kiss that Palin ring, YOU BETCHA!
For some reason, the RNC is desperately trying to prevent Ron Paul from being nominated at the convention next week. Today they attempted to change their own rule requiring a candidate to have a plurality of delegates in five states to ten states (but failed).
What is the GOP so scared of? Just let RP be nominated, give his 15 minute speech, and wish him happy retirement.
Why can't she be there representing FOX?
Call up that dude ROGER, he can spill it?
Ever think about that?
REINCE, MARK ?
You know, she does not have to speak for me to be happy, but there are some
who are going to cause a stink, and I am not going to slam them either !
I still think it is all a RUSE, and she is asurprise to get thing EXCITING.
I pitty R&R if they are cutting her out (makes them look small), for stupid reasons...MSM...
She makes the MSM....goe nutty bananas...and that is a GOOD thing !
NOT Chrissy Matthews, he is fulltime nutty dirt-bag (O-bu$$-sniffer)...all the time !
Reince Preibus IS LYING, but that is not the first time.....
Governor (3 fiscal yrs), Oil Regulator (1 yr), Mayor (6 fiscal yrs), City Councilwoman (4 fiscal yrs), and Small Business Owner (18 fiscal yrs), SARAH PALIN (C-AK)
She is the GOLD STANDARD in the Conservative movement today where there is no match to her electric popularity and cogent, working Americans, argument for restoring our foundational principles now lost or challenged daily by Establishment Cronies on “both sides of the aisle”.
Compare a “Genuine Conservative” …..like Sarah Palin
Compare a “EuroTrash” Democrat ……like Barrack Obama
Compare a “Blithering Idiot” Democrat …..like Joe Biden
Coming together to take back America. That was the message of the Tea Party and the RNC since 2010. I suspect the RNC doesn't appreciate the obvious lackluster praise Palin has offered up for Romney and Palin wasn't offered a prime time slot.
My friends and I haven't been to a rally but we believe in the sentiment of the Tea Party. I suspect that will be the case in Nov.
Leave the pettiness at the door, people, our children and grandchildren depend on it.
Priebus is not credible. The guv is doing him and the GOPe a big favor by letting them off the hook. They do not deserve her, but she is the good soldier, as always, and knows this is not about her. Akin could learn something about leadership by observing how the guv always puts first things first.
We will probably never know the details unless someone spills the negoitiations and I doubt that either side would comment further.
It may well be that after seeing the uproar over her not being included they decided to offer her some early time - welll before any national exposure and something minor like introducing a speaker. I can't believe that even that invite wouldn't have come with restrictions about what she could say.
Hard to see Palin seeing that type of invite as anything other than a diss and she probably wouldn't willingly help the GOP diminish her.
He sure hedged on that one. The networks will cover only 1-hour each night, from 10:00-11:00 pm EDT. He said she was offered some "prime-time" spot from 7-11 "when all the delegates would be there and attentive." That doesn't cut it. Unless Gov. Palin was given a speaking slot from 10-11 when all America would be watching, the offer was nonsense. I suspect that is exactly what happened, and she turned them down flat. I'm still furious at the Republicans and Romney for snubbing her, and I won't watch any of it Super Yoni.
Something does not add up here from what I have been reading on some of these sites. I believe I heard a comment by Sarah, that she had left a place in her schedule for a possible invite to speak at the GOP convention. Then I read on this site and a few others, that her supporters are angered because she has never received an invitation to speak at the Convention. Now I hear from the RNC Chairman, that she in fact, was invited to speak in prime time, but has declined to do so. What is really going on here?
Quite frankly, I don't like what I am hearing and I do believe Sarah needs to clarify what is going on. Supposedly, we are all in this fight to win and to save our Republic, but we now have a central figure with a large following, who is supposedly being left out of the Convention equation and creating quite a rift. If party supporters cannot be unified, there will be no GOP victory come November! One now wonders, who is misleading whom?
So just because Preibus now says she was offerred a prime spot we're supposed to figure she just blew the RNC off? Why should we believe him now? Why should we believe him now? Seems like this would have been the explanation back when all the uproar hit the fan - not now. If course he'd like this to put the issue to rest. But it's hard to see why he would think passing the blame to Palin would somehow make her supporterrs less pissed.
Why did Brother Mark tiptoe into asking the question? Old hard ass Levin fearful of Lil' ole Reince?
Reince sounds like a politician. He's a vast improvement over Steele.
It's funny, Paul Ryan makes me feel like he's honest and a straight shooter... this guy doesn't leave me with a warm fuzzy at all.
I hope he's a stand up guy... I don't trust Republicans anymore, and Reince isn't alleviating my fears... not really.
Oh pooh on Mike H! Entertainer yes, but motivator? Nah...I am an Arkie. I know. He has NEVER been a fan of Sarah, Rush, Mitt or any other politician he was competing against.
I don't dislike Mike, but he is NO conservative, and he is very much part of the establishment. Not a rino, but establishment. He is smoooooozer.
I believe RNC chair. No reason to lie. Sarah is a tough negotiator and and she has been through the shredder with the 'pub party. If there was a grammatical error she would not let it slip. No Sarah, is their problem....and remember, Mitt, Jeb, Sanford, Tpaw -- right after the 08 election went of a sorta bus tour and they trashed Sarah. Especially Jeb and Tpaw. So I have no use for Jeb or Tpaw.
It does not matter, hurricane is cause problems along with New Black Panthers. None of this matters. It is just a waste of time and money. What matters is to win the election! In all areas: house, senate, presidency! If that doesn't happen...nothing matters.
I think there is more to this story. If Preibus is telling the truth, I suspect the issue may have been what Palin would say in her speech. I'm sure the GOP establishment and the Romney campaign would want her speech scripted their way. No doubt she would come across more presidential than Romney.
Here is what I think happened. They were not going to invite her. They had Cheney be their trial balloon to see how negative they could be with her when not inviting her. Saw they could not publicly diss her like he did. So came up with whatever condition it would take to get Palin to decline. My guess is that they gave her the role of introducing Nicki Haley. Thats the ticket.
Palin was the first female VP in Republican history. You don't wait until two days after the new VP pick to negotiate, unless you were judging for reaction from conservatves about the new guy. They decided they didn't need her and made their low ball offer.
I believe that if they really wanted Palin there she would be speaking. She indicated she was eagerly awaiting the invitation to the dance. Then Priebus lied about not inviting anybody. The day after he said that President Bush announced he had been invited and had decided to turn it down.
No big deal. We know the Republican establishment can't stand her and want her to vanish. They at war with her.
Atleast we will have Mike Huckabee to entertain us and motivate us.
All I get from all this blabbing here is that none of you know a dang thing about Reince Priebus and exactly how far he's been willing to severely tick off the establishment for the sake of the country. You really don't.
Sarah has other plans at the convention. What are they? I have no clue.
It was reported back in Apris that SarahPAC had rented a booth somewhere near the convention site and a big fuss was made over the $3,500.00/night hotel room that was also secured by the same "group" that rented the booth. (The hotel room isn't mentioned in this article - I can't find that article.) http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0412/75036.html
After Sarah voted in Alaska's primary she did an interview with CNN where she said "my plan is to be at that convention." Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4v1NIOyc9o
Just a few days ago, in an interview on FOX News, SP said (when asked by Greta about the RNC): "I am so anxious to hear new voices; to see these new faces. What I said in '08 still stands true today as I predicted what would happen when Barack Obama had opportunity to fulfill his promise to fundamentally transform America. And we see exactly what is happening. Those statements still stand true; those predictions (are) coming to fruition. So, my statement is the same as it was back in '08 so now I want to hear these new voices." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBu3eWSV5jU
Democrats would love to see her in prime time. Let's not give them red meat. She's wonderful for our party, but she does represent the past and a failed campaign. Not a good optic. We have fabulous speakers, including Artur Davis who will explain why he, as a black man, left the Democrat party. Let's look to the great people we can showcase this year like Davis, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Christie, etc. - not Bush, not Cheney, not Palin. We love them all, but it's a new day, and they will just energize the lunatic left and the media.
Sorry, but Christie is a social liberal. Davis needs to prove himself a Conservative. I do not jump on anyone's band wagon just because they are the newest flavor of the month. Do you remember Scott Brown, our former Conservative savior? Sarah is the future, the real deal and the "new day" for Conservatism and is fearless. I really can not take the hand wringing and "let's not get the left and the media angry at us!" "Let's not give the Democrats red meat". To heck with them! I am a Conservative Carnivore and I want people like Sarah and West that do not give a darn what the other side thinks and especially what some limp wristed independents think. I do not think you are really a fan of Sarah's at all and certainly do not think you would admit it in mixed company. Lambfound you need to get your Lionfound.
And exactly how does Romney not represent past & failed campaigns? The man couldn't even win the nomination last cycle.
Wrong. Palin did not fail and more than any other individual she was the powerful symbol of recovery in 2010. It is the Bushes, the Roves, the Cheneys and the MCains who represent the past and represent failure. Palin represents resilliance and endurance. In these respects she has no peers. The can't have her at the Convention bexause without even trying she will show up the likes of Romney and Christi for the dull mediocrities that they are. The Left and the Democrats of course know this well.
She doesn't represent any failed campaign because she DID NOT FAIL.
It is John McCain and the republican clique that has failed and is destined to fail again.
I could not disagree more. Palin is the future. Her charisma would overshadow the boring Romney and Ryan. If they win, it will be a miracle. PALIN•WEST 2016
Kimmy Kimkim, here's why Sarah Palin isn't going to the convention: 1) She'll instantly overshadow Romney and Ryan, which would not be good for the ticket, 2) Romney knows democrat enthusiasm is down, and the very sight of Gov. Palin would energize the looney libs, and 3) The corrupt, liberal media would mention ad nauseum how Romney was considered less qualified than Sarah in 2008, which McCain has said.
I hope you can handle such logic, but I'm not holding my breath.
Nice try. She's not going because SHE WASN'T INVITED. Doesn't matter what "reasons" you come up with. She's the skanky girl hanging around outside the prom hoping for the leftovers.
Sarah Palin WASN'T invited for the same reason BUSH wasn't invited. They are BOTH failed politicians that the RNC considers an embarrassment. Sorry that none of you want to believe that, but its true.
Oh, and what a "champion of women's rights" Sarah is. Akin is shown to be the PIG he is and all she can say is "I told you so"?? Not a WORD about the horror & trauma of rape or its effect on a woman's SOUL. Nope. Just her usual selfish, mean-spirited rhetoric. Didn't her OWN DAUGHTER claim to be RAPED in a tent??? She could've used this opportunity to speak out for women's dignity and instead she chose to be a vindictive shrew.
Yeah, what a "grizzly mama" she turned out to be.
You ludicrous leftist APE. Sarah has too much class to gloat over the demise of the sorry individual who is destined to self-distract anyway.
Equally, she could destroy Romney within secends if she wanted, but her love for the country is greater than her obvious ambitions...
Only brain dead monkey like yourself cannot see that.
The GOP is led by foolish buffoons. They don't deserve Palin. If Romney-Ryan loses to the worst president since 1923, the party is finished.
Reince, it sounds like you're lying through your teeth.
I thought I was listening to someone from the Obama campaign...with all the uh-uh's.
Sarah rents a spot in Tampa months in advance and as John_Frank points out she left 4 days open. Now Priebus says "she was invited to speak it just turns out her schedule and I think she was planning on staying up in Alaska anyway and it didn't work out" LOL, really, that was the best you could do Reince.
Everyone would love her to speak at the convention so where is the problem oh I forgot "she was planning on staying up in Alaska anyway" after renting space and leaving 4 days free.
But what had me laughing was when Mark ask "a prime time slot?" and the reply "I don't know what you mean by prime time" Mark: "when everyone's watching t.v" that was funny.
Why so flustered there Reince? You're the one who organizes this whole shindig? You couldn't point to a specific time when one of the most high profile speakers in the party that would no doubt bring the house down with her speech. You have NO CLUE when she woulda been speaking? Rigggghhhhttt. Someone doesn't want her there? huckaboob of Rmoney??
The RNC will never get one red dime from me. Not one! You elitest have screwed over the only woman who could unite the party. So good luck with the last of the losers!!
I still think there is a RUSE going on. I sent them a plan.
Stay tuned, SAME BAT TIME, SAME BAT CHANNEL
No, Sarah is not BAT Woman, but she could sure "show up" and raise the roof, no?
I suggested she walk out with the Chick-Fil-A girl who was so kind and sweet to the lefty jerk.
That kid's parents must be walking on air.
How bettter can you show off your values and make women proud.
At the very least PALIN could engage Biden in a debate and rough him up (verbally) and "chain" him to a the FLAG POLE.
Palin lost her right to debate ANYONE when she chickened out and decided she didn't have the guts to run.
She has NEVER promised you troglodyte...
And there was NOTHING to chicken out from because she has done to the conservative movement more than any other alive American.
Why should she run for the leadership of the morally degenerate organisation that has no more courage than to keep stabbing her in the back.
Even the people who owe her their political victories turned their backs on her.
The GOP has invested more effort to damage Palin than to fight Obama and Democrats.
So has Romney...
