Karl Rove says that based on Palin’s recently released video and her schedule in Iowa next week, she looks like that of a pre-presidential candidate and he’s guessing she’s going to jump in the race.

He also says that, based on the people he’s talked to, Paul Ryan and Chris Christie are getting a lot of pressure from around the country to jump in the race and they will have to give it serious consideration.

    Rove says “I think Sarah Palin is going to run”, followed by a loosening of his bowels.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LBPOL76XLX5YCWXYNOECPVQHBQ Oregon

      You want to think about that?
      I do think she ain’t gonna run. I think he’s wrong, she’s not going to.

    His egg head doesn’t stop because he’d rather see Palin get into the race and split votes so Romney would get the nomination and maintain the status quo.

    You have to wonder when Rove, who notoriously hates conservatives, is pushing Christie who is a phony, physio Republican.

    Levin clocked it last week when he said members of the establishment GOP would even rather LOSE this election than see a Conservative in office.

    Rove is disgusting.

      Have you noticed, Rove has not filled in for Rush since his anti conservative comments.

        You are correct. And Chris Matthews has not appeared on Rush’s show (either as a call-in guest or fill-in host) since he went bat-crap insane on MSNBC.

      Let me try to understand this:

      Rove not just a few months ago was solidly in the anti-Palin camp, no? (At least I thought he was.) So why prop her up now? Why reverse course so quickly and so blatantly?

      Is it because he doesn’t want Perry – an obvious now bitter rival and another so-called anti-establishment GOP guy (moreso because of the Bush fallout) – to get the nod instead of Romney? That would seem to make sense. Aid and abet the establishment candidate, defeat your rival, and also take out the other candidate you deemed “unelectable” not long ago, all at the same time.

      This is pretty much Rove’s Waterloo.

      What still doesn’t make sense is Ann Coulter’s inexplicable wanton desire for Chris Christie to run. Unless she’s doing THAT just to get a cheap rise out of Hannity.

        Sorry but I have lost all respect for Karl Rove. It was obvious that Palin was running since her speech in Wisconsin when she said, “Game On, Mr. President.”
        Rove is a member of the Republican elites who has been trying to intimidate the “country class” telling us that Palin will not run. He continued this ruse for as long as he could but now that he has lost all credibility he has to admit the truth. His latest ploy is to state that she will declare on 9/3 trying to demoralize Palin’s army of David’s if she doesn’t and force her to declare before she is ready. Rove, Ed Rollins and Dick Morris are intimidated by Palin because she will be running an unconventional campaign threatening their occupations and placing them among the ranks of the unemployed. These people get paid big bucks for disinformation. These thugs should be ashamed to attempt to prohibit “We the People” from choosing our own candidate instead of trying to herd us into being a flock of “sheeple” who vote for the next RINO-in-chief.
        Karl, what you have going against you is this, if I may paraphrase the words of my congressman Lt. Col. Allen West. Sarah Palin’s army of Davids will follow her into the gates of hell carrying a gas can. Palin’s supporters contrary to Rove’s attempts at disinformation are made up of Independents who are fed up with the Republican establishment or PUMA’s who defected from the Democrat party who recognize that Palin worked with Democrats to reach common sense solutions in Alaska. Palin is a uniter not a divider. Rove’s gridlock politics as usual is over. People want solutions. Palin is a proven reformer who means what she says.

    This thing about Paul Ryan has me very, very worried. I really, really hope Ryan is smarter than that but you never know what the lure of a run will do to people.

    No good can come from a Paul Ryan candidacy. No matter how unfair it is, Ryan is already established as the Left’s Boogie Man. His budget proposal was a huge political mistake. Huge. Listen. I don’t like Donald Trump. I would never support Donald Trump. But Donald Trump is right about that. Paul Ryan is damaged goods and if he wants what’s best for this country he will keep as a low a profile as possible for the next 16 months.

    The last thing the Republican Party needs is Paul Ryan being in the news every day.

    • Anonymous

      His budget deal is sweet bliss. He will capture such a large segment of the vote. He would mop the floor with o’bama.

      • Anonymous

        Ryan’s budget assumes the same baseline costs as every other serious proposal we’ve all heard about. The “cuts” in it are not real cuts at all. They’re reductions in the increases built into the baseline. Ryan’s budget would add trillions to the debt.

        Listen, I like Paul Ryan and I have no doubt if we ever get a true conservative President and control of the Senate he will work to bring about real budget reform. But this budget was not it. It was a political move he thought had a chance because he used Clinton era proposals on Medicare reform.

        I don’t mean this to be an attack on Paul Ryan. But the reality is that his budget was a huge gamble for very little pay off. It was predicated on what appears to be a congenital and ingrained misconception conservatives have that Democrats can be reasoned with when faced with a reasonable argument from their own side. That will never work.

        Barack Obama and Paul Ryan could hold a joint press conference where they repeated the exact same words about the budget. Obama reads a statement, hands it to Ryan and he reads the exact same statement. The next day, the President could contradict everything he said the day before, call Ryan an “extremist”, and the press would run with it.

        We have proof of this with the debt ceiling.

    I have to agree with Rove on this one, reversing my previous notions. I wasn’t at all sure in the past. But, country has gotten worse and it is not a time to pontificate. Real patriots will step to the plate, win or loose.

    None other candidate “gets it” like Palin. And, she seems not to think of herself as elite. I long to see such a leader in America.

    While I am at it, I see a candidate that is more polished, sophisticated, and knowledgeable than ever, Palin can hold her own with any candidate, pundit, or
    comedian.

    • http://twitter.com/myronfalwell Nathan Obral

      But is Rove being authentic with what he said about Palin? Does he really believe it? Or is it all just for political purposes, to cause a fracture in the party that leads to Romney’s nomination? Is he BS’ing with us so as to get things his way in the end?

      That doesn’t mean what he said isn’t true by any means. I question as to if he was being truthful with HIMSELF by saying it.

      Rushlimbaugh about a month ago said “we are all Sarah Palin”! After a month of the media lying about the tea party roll in the debt ceiling debate and low and behold the tea party polling as bad as Palin. It does not matter who becomes the nominee the media is going to destroy the GOP nominee credibility.

      These is so important that Sarah Palin becomes the nominee!!! We must have a president that won’t be sway by the media and by the media I also mean democrats. Remember Bush with the compassionate “conservative platform” was a disaster for us. He did so many things that the democrats wanted. If Bush was a democrat his policies was pretty much line up with bill Clinton except for a few crumbs.

      Sarah Palin is the only candidate that actually want to reform, downsize, and clean up the federal government. Sarah Palin want to free the energy market. Perry is a Oil man. He is not going to free the market because a free market will hurt the oil profits in texas. Sarah Palin is the only candidate that fought the oil companies and won!!!

      Energy should be cheap. In Saudi Arabia the price of gas is $0.12 per gallon. That is why democrats push environmental crap because it give OPAC and dictators to control the price of oil. Sarah Palin will destroy this monopoly that was created by the federal government making monopolies out of there rules and regulation for the purpose of spreading our wealth to other nations. She will free the market that will make energy cheap!!!!

      Most national politicians have a bad position on illegals. That’s a fact. Including Palin.
      Told Univision that it would be “inhumane” to deport all of them, and she supports a guest worker program.
      Not so surprising from McCain’s running mate, I guess.
      She wouldn’t be the only one who’s weak on this issue because most people are.
      Bachmann, by contrast, doesn’t indicate that to me. numbersusa gives her a good score of B-. Most candidates who run or may run don’t score that high.

    Whatever you do today, I urge you to pay $8.95, register, and read this wonderful article. It made my day. It is the strongest endorsement of Rick Perry and Sarah Palin. Dr. Jack Wheeler wrote this article. I was introduced to his website by a doctor outside of Washington, DC who knows him. He used to work for Ronald Reagan, and was also worked for the CIA. He is a tough guy. I would post it here to save you the money, but I’m afraid the moderator will scold me for doing it. He or she did once when I put something else that they considered too long. Not too long to read though.

    PALIN, PERRY, AND THE ROLLING STONES
    Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler
    Thursday, 18 August 2011

    On June 12, 1964, at Big Reggie’s Danceland Ballroom in Excelsior, Minnesota (on Lake Minnetonka west of Minneapolis), The Rolling Stones gave a performance during their first American tour. They were little-known back then (everyone was into Beatlemania), they were drunk, played poorly, and got booed off the stage by the audience of 300.

    The next morning, Mick Jagger went into Bacon’s Drug Store to fill a prescription. Standing in front of him was a local character named Jimmy Hutmaker, Excelsior’s retarded town mascot whom everyone befriended. Jimmy wanted his usual morning pick-me-up, a cherry coke – but the fellow who manned the soda fountain said they were out of cherry syrup, so he gave Jimmy a regular coke.

    Whereupon Jimmy turned to Mick, shrugged his shoulders, and said, “You can’t always get what you want.”

    Jagger never forgot what “Mr. Jimmy” said, and used it to create an achingly extraordinary rock and roll masterpiece (with the beginning and closing chorus sung by the London Bach Choir):

    Oh, you can’t always get what you want
    Oh, you can’t always get what you want
    Oh, you can’t always get what you want
    But if you try sometimes, you just might find
    You get what you need……..http://www.tothepointnews.com/content/view/4638/2/

        We’ll see. I think it’s starting to become a very safe assumption that whomever wins the GOP nomination (Palin, Perry or *gulp* Romney) has an excellent shot at becoming President. The primaries will be where it’s at.

        Unless it’s Jon Huntsman. God forbid.

            Not sure if Bosco’s still made. Probably is, but certainly not in the Midwest. I’d have to look that up. ;)

            Mark Davis put it best on Friday (Rush fill-in) equating Romney to empty calories. And that’s what he’s been all along. Boring, blah, and incapable of winning outside of Michigan (and maybe New Hampshire).

            I feel bad in a way for Huntsman. It’s tough to suffer long-term amnesia and completely forget what political party you actually belong to.

      Palin only needs to have the public re-vet her (i.e., completely disproving all of the misconceptions and accusations made about her since September 2008). I am very intrigued by how her team will approach that.

      If she’s holding out to sabotage the other possible candidacies, then it’s pretty shrewd on her part. There will have to be a drop-dead date for those people first; who knows when that will be.

      A Ryan candidacy has no hope of materializing.

      Ryan is the beltway genius’ trial ballon du jour. He has no money, no organization, and a lot of inertia to overcome in changing from a major Senate operative of the Republican party, to an asipirant to national office.

      If every single, possible thing he needed fell magically into place, he’d still have a ridiculously hard time getting any notice at all compared to Obama.

      So it’s not that I don’t like the man, it’s that I detest this trial balloon nonsense from the supposed party elites. They are afraid of the Tea Party and folks like Palin, Cain, Perry, and Bachmann. I’m betting Sen. Ryan doesn’t appreciate being used this way, either.

    Palin on leadership:
    Leaders are expected to give good speeches, but leadership is so much more than oratory. Real leadership requires deeds even more than words. It means taking on the problems no one else wants to tackle. It means providing vision and guidance, inspiring people to action, bringing everyone to the table, and with a servant’s heart dedicating oneself to striking agreements that keep faith with our Constitution and with the ordinary citizens who entrusted you with power. It means bucking the status quo, fighting the corrupt powers that be, serving the common good, and leaving the country better than you found it. Most of us don’t see a lot of that real leadership in D.C., and it’s profoundly disappointing.

    Ok, Mr. Karl Rove, now that you have told us what we, American Patriotic Tea Party Palin supporters, already know.. what’s next.. the world is round, and the grass is green..

    So Karl, should we now get down on our knees and thank you for acknowledging and even allowing Gov. Palin, and her supporters, to even be considered, in your prognosticating prediction political list of possible Presidential candidates, of who are in, and not in the race for US President..

    Well, at least you are starting to wake up to the facts of and about Gov. Palin..

    Here’s something interesting for you..

    Amy Siskind from The New Agenda made a passionate and educated analysis of the need for a Sarah Palin presidency whilst confirming, in her opinion, her long held belief that Palin will definitely run for president.

    Appearing on Fox & Friends Election HQ Sunday morning Siskind set out that Palin was a unique talent and, as opposed to Texas Governor and candidate Rick Perry, who she described as “not the solution” Palin “is the solution”.

    Siskind canvassed Pailn’s success as governor of Alaska and her ability to reach across the aisle, a capability she said, that “no other GOP candidate has.”

      “American Patriotic Tea Party Palin supporters”
      She doesn’t have the support of everyone in the Tea Party. No politician founded the Tea Party except Obama. Or I guess by proxy we’re supporters of an Orrin Hatch supporter like she is?
      We don’t kneel before politicians. We try to get them to kneel before us. :)

    Sarah Palin has ALL READY been vetted MORE than ANY other candidate,…

    and been found wanting by the lame-stream media,…

    What more of a reason, IF she runs, do you need to vote for her?

    When the lame-stream media’s shorts get in a bunch over someone as much as they do over Sarah Palin,…

    Then that person MUST be doing something RIGHT!!

    Rushlimbaugh about a month ago said “we are all Sarah Palin”! After a month of the media lying about the tea party roll in the debt ceiling debate and low and behold the tea party polling as bad as Palin. It does not matter who becomes the nominee the media is going to destroy the GOP nominee credibility.

    These is so important that Sarah Palin becomes the nominee!!! We must have a president that won’t be sway by the media and by the media I also mean democrats. Remember Bush with the compassionate “conservative platform” was a disaster for us. He did so many things that the democrats wanted. If Bush was a democrat his policies was pretty much line up with bill Clinton except for a few crumbs.

    Sarah Palin is the only candidate that actually want to reform, downsize, and clean up the federal government. Sarah Palin want to free the energy market. Perry is a Oil man. He is not going to free the market because a free market will hurt the oil profits in texas. Sarah Palin is the only candidate that fought the oil companies and won!!!

    Energy should be cheap. In Saudi Arabia the price of gas is $0.12 per gallon. That is why democrats push environmental crap because it give OPAC and dictators to control the price of oil. Sarah Palin will destroy this monopoly that was created by the federal government making monopolies out of there rules and regulation for the purpose of spreading our wealth to other nations. She will free the market that will make energy cheap!!!!

    Sarah Palin 2012!!!

      Rush Limbaugh is not the type of person who would demonize ‘oil men’. He understands capitalism.
      ‘Nuff said.

        I do not understand of how else to explain it so that you’ll understand. Our country’s economy is not operating under a full capitalist system. The reality is that a big government benefits big corporations and a small government benefits small corporations. The closer we get to the proper role of government of protecting individual rights and ONLY individual rights. Than our country will become more prosperous, more freedom, more capitalist.

        Under a big government companies that have ability can lobby for polices that will hurt there competitors that do not have the resources for increase rules and regs. They just are not going to be as productive or there going to go out of business. Perfect example is Obamacare. Big companies have always lobbied for government control healthcare. To offset their health insurance cost. The big companies can afford to lobbied for waviers, adjust the tax code, and buy out their struggling competitors.

        Even countries lobby our government. Remember when the Arab emirates lobbied president Bush to control the ports and Bush was hell bent to make that happen.

        If you still don’t believe me. I stay in Gwinnett county GA. I’m a member of the republican party of Gwinnett. Our party just countize the garbage companies last year. They pick two companies from florda to force us to use their trash service and kick the other companies out. Hi it’s a win/win. The crony politicians gets kick backs from the garbage companies, have power house of voters from the companies. The garbage companies have a monopoly. The best part is were the ones paying for it.

        So pick the candidate that want to free us!!! Don’t get fool into comprehensive bull.

        Palin/Rubio 2012!!!

          What’s called “crony” Capitalism exists, 1990s Russia, but not in the narrative the Democrats frame it or as often as they think it happens. Halliburton is soo evil, big CORPORATIONS are soo evil.
          I’m not the kind of Marxist who buys into that ‘compassionate con’ view.
          Some of them are bad, same with any occupation, but most are just hard-working people making do for their families.
          I would not buy Michael Moore’s propaganda that Bush was an Arab tool, or any of his other silly conspiracy theories.

          Rubio wouldn’t get snookered into that class warfare thing, either.

    She’s not the patron saint of all things anti-RINO. She is a supporter of Orrin Hatch, McCain, Carly, and honestly there’s more because there’s just as much dirt on her as there is with these other guys if you look at records and statements.

    • Anonymous

      Oh, please…if there was dirt to find, they would have found it long ago. About the only thing they can do now is make something up, but that hasn’t worked either.
      She doesn’t support Hatch…she praised him for standing up for a balanced budget all these years, that’s all. She has loyalty as a friend for McCain but does not support most of his policies. She supported Carly as being the best electable candidate in that race. There is no way you can see her as anything but a solid conservative, and a darned effective one at that.

        She is a Hatch supporter. Her own words. She said the Tea Party should line up behind him and not attack him. I heard the interview. Don’t try to spin it to excuse her and put words in her mouth you wish were in there.
        She is not 100% conservative. She also attacks oil companies. She also defended Carly’s record. She didn’t support DeVore, she put herself behind Carly and defended her record.
        Don’t we usually not go for ‘electable’, anyway? She said with her we got a winner. She defended her credentials because she saw nothing wrong with them, said as much, and she defended Hatch’s, and she tried to offer a defense of McCain’s.
        She’s not a baby. Nobody ‘makes’ her endorse people she doesn’t want to. She’s accountable for what she says and what she does and should be held accountable just like anyone else. You can’t, as I’ve seen some do, make up conspiracies about how she doesn’t ‘really’ support so-and-so that she’s gone on record as explicitly praising. That is sexist, and it denies that she is her own person who makes her OWN decisions. You can’t just rationalize it away when she says something you don’t like and if she had a problem with so-and-so, she would have said as much, but she didn’t because she doesn’t think we should challenge Hatch.
        Malkin got angry over her support for Hatch.
