The Big Announcement? Palin to keynote Tea Party rally in Iowa


Real Clear Politics: In the latest indication that her sights are still set on a presidential run, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has accepted an invitation to keynote a Tea Party rally in Waukee, Iowa, on Sept. 3, RealClearPolitics has learned.

The Labor Day weekend visit to the nation's first voting state comes after Palin indicated during an appearance on Fox News earlier this month that she would make her decision about whether to launch a campaign in August or September.
All signs now point to September as the month when Palin would throw her hat into the ring, as logistical concerns ranging from fundraising to getting her name on the ballot in various states would likely preclude further delay. [MORE]
As my regular readers know, I have always believed that Palin would run in 2012. For me the question has always been what would she run for. Will she run to win the White House or will she run just to shape the GOP field? She has the power to do both, so time will actually tell.

I cannot think of a better time or venue for Palin to announce. A TEA Party rally with the theme of "Restoring America" is tailor made for Palin who constantly works in themes or restore, renew and revive. As everyone knows, 
September 3rd would be cutting it close for throwing in your hat for 2012.

While a Palin announcement would be sure to generate wall to wall coverage on any given day, an announcement on September 3rd would guarantee she would dominate a slow news weekend for three days. Three crucial days when Americans are actually getting together with family and discussing things like politics. This would be a classic Palin media manipulation.

One way or another, Palin will have to make her 2012 intentions clear by Labor Day.

I am very unimpressed by her anymore. It all just seems like game playing and shenanigans. I hope she stays out of the race. Too much baggage and not stepping up when she should've and could've.

I've noticed that the Tea Party is gaining a LOT of respect for standing their ground this week. I appears the Dems are like pre teen girls and the Repubs are like teenage girls and the Tea Party are the parents making the tough decisions regardless of the backlash from the Junior High students. If Sarah gets in there it will be many steps backward. JMO of course

I still don't think that Palin will make a run for the White House next year. I think that her role will be to promote the republican nominee. This will use her talents to the max. Although some of us have not bought into the bs by the media, I am afraid that a lot of so called independents have and think that she is not qualified to be president. I personally think that she would do a great job.

I think that Perry will run and be quiet popular although some in Tx. see him as a rino.

Scott said...

She should manipulate the media. That would be better than so many Rinos who let the tables be turned on them in some fashion and end up kowtowing to the "fifth column".

Yay! I agree. This looks to be Palin's moment.

I will either watch this over the Internet, on TV, or in person. Yes, I am considering travelling to Iowa to attend this event, and I am on the West Coast. To paraphrase VP Biden, "this is a big flippin' deal!!!"

You already know how I feel about this.

Love Ya Cliff!!!

Palin is yesterday's very old news. She will not run.

2012 belongs to Rick Perry.

Kartman said...

I wonder if any of Obama's staff plans to attend the class in Detroit. People like Van Jones could teach it.

~mid aug: silence can be golden... you're waiting for sp's move to join the arrival of the tsunami crush - aren't you(?)

VizFact said...

I am sure she will run. I think she actually has a chance at winning. I am not in support of Rick Perry because of some his policies, and attempted policies here in Texas.
