New York Times article details Palin’s political machine.
Sarah Palin has clarified for the first time in a newly published interview that she is seriously considering a presidential run.
“I am,” Palin told New York Times writer Robert Draper when asked if she was weighing a run in 2012. “I’m engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here.”
In a personal profile to be published in the upcoming New York Times Magazine, Palin said her decision would involve “evaluating whether she could bring unique qualities to the table,” admitting the biggest challenge would be proving her record.
Whoa…this article gives me great hope! And man, it sounds like she’s VERY SMART to me. Her instincts are brilliant, and those who underestimate her do so at their peril.
You say she’s “unelectable”…? yeah and you said Bristol couldn’t dance…How’d that work out for ya?
Love this at the end (Sarah is IN CHARGE)
“Palin heavily edits or at times completely writes most of her own speeches and insists on reviewing any statement issued by SarahPAC,”
New York Times article details Palin’s political machine.
Big Deal. Who cares. What I wanna know is, what’s the latest gossip about Bristol and DWTS???
And as usual, Free Republic is the main source of info to catch up on this truly important stuff.
If you think about the whole picture Palin is the only one that would notcowtail to the global agenda.
She will be bashed in the media because of this.
I think her show with Greta on drilling in Alaska makes Palin brilliant in exposing the “protect wildlife” bogus liberal story and vital to our economy.
I hope she runs and I pray she can win. She needs to do something to appeal to the independent voter that even the media can’t spin.
Well, also about 80,000,000 voters.
I’ve been sharing those links today with DWTS doofuses.
You should see their heads explode!
I like Sarah. I do. And I feel for her as her idiot daughters are a major embarrassment.
But to many FReepers who worship DWTS and see NOTHING wrong with what Bristol (and now Willow) are doing… I like to poke fun and agitate them.
LOL, you’re(sic) desperation is not a virtue. It’s just desperation.
The only head(sic) that have been exploding have been liberal heads all across the nation…as they succumbed to Bristol Palin making the finals.

I promised myself that I’d stop defending Sarah Palin. But it’s a hard habit to break.
While I found the former Alaska governor refreshing during the 2008 presidential campaign, she has been a disappointment since then. Instead of hitting the books and learning the issues, Palin ditched class, resigned her post and concentrated on making money. As a result, she doesn’t seem any more informed now than she was when she exploded on the national scene two years ago. So she tries to get by with a wink and a smile – and the occasional slab of red meat for the GOP base.
Still, many of the attacks upon Palin are unfair and unwarranted – not to mention, eerily bipartisan. It’s not enough that she has to put up with a steady stream of snarky criticism from liberal Democrats who obviously feel threatened by the rock-star greeting she gets from the throngs of people who turn out just to catch a glimpse of her at a speech, fundraiser, or book signing.
These days, Palin is also getting an icy reaction from conservatives who likewise feel threatened – this time, by what seems to be her bid for greater influence with Republicans in Washington. Recently, Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., a nine-term congressman, told members of a Chamber of Commerce in his district: “Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate.” With no evidence to back up the claim, Bachus insisted that the tea party candidates endorsed by Palin – specifically Christine O’Donnell in Delaware – were so weak that they torpedoed the GOP’s chances to reclaim the Senate along with the House.
Really? Bachus may believe that Republicans had a realistic shot at capturing Vice President Joe Biden’s old seat if they would have gone with Rep. Mike Castle. But since Castle was defeated by O’Donnell in the primary, we’ll never know.
This sounds like just another excuse to bash Palin and the tea party movement, one that continues a thread started just days after the election when Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott caused a stir in GOP circles by telling Politico.com that Republicans had not nominated their best candidates in races that could have been more competitive.
How petty. Before this election, Republicans had become so accustomed to losing that even in victory, they still sound defeated. Instead of being pleased with a strong performance, some GOP lawmakers prefer to see the glass as half empty and portray themselves of victims of an insurgency by the tea party. They never consider the possibility that it was the tea party votes that allowed them to compete in the first place. Nor do they consider the possibility that the GOP establishment might be as much to blame as anyone for not winning control of the Senate.
In any case, what difference does it make why the Senate stayed in Democratic hands? All that matters is that it did. Republicans have to find a way to deal with this reality, and still have a hand in shaping public policy until they can reclaim the White House and/or the Senate in a future election. They should be looking forward and not backward.
Of course, Palin brings much of this criticism upon herself by tweaking her critics. Just recently, she posted on her Facebook page some friendly advice for the incoming Congress.
“Stick to the principles that propelled your campaigns,” Palin said. She urged lawmakers to defund “Obamacare.” Then, she said, they should cut spending, extend tax breaks, and increase border security. She also told them to “extend a hand to President Obama and Democrats in Congress.”
The smart thing for establishment Republicans to do right now is to stop complaining and extend a hand to Sarah Palin.
You are not fooling anyone by posting this.
Please tell me who I’m not fooling and what you mean by that…
I remain resolutely convinced you are a concern troll when it comes to Sarah Palin. I am sure many many others see you in this light as well.
Yeah, I have a comment. This sort of transparent “concern” is really getting old.
That’s the funniest thing I’ve read since the last Iowahawk post. Have you been in a coma, a cave or overseas for the last 24 months?!
I’m concerned about the concern of your alleged concern.
If Sarah Palin were a man, there would be no doubt whatsoever that ‘he’ had earned his own shot at the presidency, and would have complete backing by the Party.
LOL See this is what happens when you are even handed. You of all people, one of Palin’s biggest fans is accused of treachery.
“First you kill off all the other races, then you start killing off all the other religions, then you start killing off the left-handed people, then you start killing off each other over the length of your crew cuts, until finally, there’s one person left – and no doubt that crazy son-of-a-bitch’ll attack the mirror.”
Boy are you misuniformed. We got enough enemies here already, we don’t need any friendly fire incidents.
Next up –” IIZ SO a Reaganz!!1!”

Editor’s note: Ed Rollins, a senior political contributor for CNN, is senior presidential fellow at the Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency at Hofstra University. He is a principal with the Dilenschneider Group, a global public relations firm.He was White House political director for President Ronald Reagan and chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
(CNN) — The first date is over. Not much happened. President Obama and his new governing partners, the House and Senate Republicans, met at the White House along with the Democratic leaders and discussed the unsolvable issues between them.
Even though they made no decisions and both sides went their separate ways, they agreed to start negotiations on extending the tax cuts. That in itself is the beginning of a positive process. They actually talked to each other and talked of a plan for action.
As with real dating, both sides have to get along or nothing will happen. So maybe this situation has more in common with an arranged marriage.
You’re looking to a Huckabee pimp for attack talking points against Palin? BWAHAHAHA!
That’s the most asinine thing I’ve read in a while. Someone wants to be Drama Queen for a day! It is entertaining how many of these OLD white guys are intimidated by a li’l ole girl, though. Especially one who hasn’t even said she’s running for anything. Especially one they’re always denigrating and calling insignificant.
Okay Ed, she may not be Ronald Reagan but she is far prettier and a modern day Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone.
I agree with him. She isn’t a serious person and not someone who has succeeded in life. Someone who has to go through five different colleges to earn a degree and who quits half way through her first term as Governor isn’t presidential material. The PalinMessiah crowd doesn’t like to face the facts. But its the truth. Killing the messenger doesn’t change it.
You state selected generalizations sprinkled in with some facts, confuse the timeline, tortuously twist the interpretation, and come up with an unsubstantiated opinion.
If I’m “embarassing” myself, you justr pissed all over yourself in front of the entire Free Republic community.
Go change your underwear.
You’ve refuted nothing I’ve said. Then again, I don’t expect the Palin cultists to be swayed by the facts.
Reminds of the time FR had Arnold shills. Now they’re nowhere to be found.
It was a fun ride for Christine O’Donnell as well… until about 9:15 pm on November 2.
What do you know? People were saying exactly the same thing about Christine O’Donnell one month ago and she really proved them wrong. We booted out that RINO Mike Castle and we whipped that Marxist Coons’s keester, just like our Sarah will vanquish the arch-RINO Mitt and then send POTUS back to Hawaii or wherever it was he came from. We populist fanboys know a great candidate when we see her, yes we do.
Last I checked, Palin has actually WON an election against an entrenched establishment.
And O’Donnell, for all her flaws, did take out the uber-RINO Castle, who hardly would have been much better than the Dem. Castle loosing tightened the sphincters of all the Senate RINOs facing re-election in 2012.
So, once again, take off your water wings, get out of the kiddie pool, and learn to think and post like an adult.
As you post from the kiddie pool…
I am holding my judgment to see the reality show with Sarah and Kate. If she gets a strong endorsement from Kate, then the Kardashians will follow suit.
Then there is no stopping Sarah on her way to the White House!!
Maybe a 24 year old like yourself is impressed with a reality show family running for the White House.
Like one of the old time posters around here said this morning, “This is turning into a damn freak show.”

President Bush, traveling under extraordinary secrecy to ensure his safety, made a stunning Thanksgiving visit to American troops in Baghdad Thursday.
Bush, wearing a military jacket, strode out as troops leapt to their feet and cheered. The president’s eyes were moist with tears.
“We did not charge hundreds of miles into the heart of Iraq, pay a bitter cost of casualties, defeat a ruthless dictator and liberate 25 million people only to retreat before a band of thugs and assassins,” Bush told about 600 soldiers, most of them from the Army’s 1st Armored Division and the 82nd Airborne.
“I bring a message on behalf of America: We thank you for your service, we are proud of you, and America stands solidly behind you,” he said.
anybody remember the thread started by the serviceman in Iraq that day here on FR- “The President just left my station Iraq”???
Talked about how the President secretly flew into Iraq then had left airport where the soldier was working??? said the media would report the story in an hour??
the soldier was then heckled in his thread for an hour- until someone posted “Fox just reported the President made a trip to see the soldiers in Iraq today”…
one of the greatest threads in the history of this site…

Just as we find ourselves a mere whisper away from double digit unemployment, our inept Commander in Chief runs off to Afghanistan where he will lecture General Petraeus on how to run a war without winning.
It’s the Christmas season and retailers should be adding jobs, albeit temporarily. Instead, we lost 28,000 retail jobs.
Hamid Karzai will be spared a meeting with Obama. A planned tet a tet(sic) was scrapped due to “bad weather.”
Secure videoconferencing was also abandoned but Karzai could still be forced to listen to Obama’s pontifications via telephone.
Obama’s prized Deficit Commission has been a complete flop. The new unemployment numbers are miserable. What else could our poor president do other than flee the country and hope it all blows over?
Flees country???? Where is he headed, MECCA???
He needs to go see the troops. It has been awhile. When President Bush went I always thought it was a good move for the President of the United States to visit. The Commander in Chief should go visit the troops especially close to Christmas. I am not sure if President Obama has visited the troops on Thanksgiving yet but he should sometime during the four years. It is just the right thing to do as President. I know some of you just don’t like the guy and I don’t either but at least he is doing ONE good thing right now.
If Zero had been the captain of the Titanic, he would have been in the first lifeboat.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, that Presidential trips to war zones are planned long in advance, and not just a Spontaneous event. /sarc
