Palin at the fair: I’m surprised Perry’s running after saying he wasn’t

posted at 4:45 pm on August 12, 2011 by Allahpundit

Scott Conroy describes this as Palin having “dinged” him, but it’s so gentle a jab that it barely connects. In fact, given that it invites an obvious retort about her changing her mind on finishing her term, I doubt she meant it as a knock — even if his entry (and Bachmann’s) has obviously complicated her strategy of being the tea-party savior who smites Romney. How bitter can she be if she went on to say of Perry, “I would be extremely enthused about him” if he’s the nominee?

“I was quite sure that he wasn’t going to run, because he was adamant until about four months ago that he wasn’t going to run,” she said. But she was quick to add that Perry’s change of heart was fine. “I was surprised that he had changed his position on that, but I’m glad that he’s going to be in there.”

A reporter asked whether, if Obama had committed that sort of flip-flop, she would be more critical, she laughed. “I probably would, to tell you the truth,” she said…

Even with Perry in the race, she said, “I see room in the field. Definitely.”

“If at the end of the line he’s the one left standing, I would be extremely enthused about him because I’m a believer in ABO – anybody but Obama. So, absolutely. But there’s still a long time in this process,” Palin said, adding that Perry’s entry doesn’t affect her decision making.

She noted in the course of another answer that the governor’s role in Alaska is powerful whereas the governor’s role in Texas isn’t (true), which the press also tried to turn into an attack on Perry. She got exasperated at that, emphasizing that she was describing the positions in the abstract, not the inhabitants of them. Weigel has the full quote. Needless to say, if she jumps in, the barest hint of conflict between grassroots heroes like her, Perry, and Bachmann — replete with rhetorical bloodletting among their respective tea-party bases — will produce a full-body mediagasm. No surprise then that she also got a question today about supposed tensions between her and Bachmann, which she deflected.

To my surprise, there’s not much video floating around of her appearance. This clip, via C4P, is the best of a small bunch; she addresses Bachmann’s answer to the “submission” question last night at the end. The chairman of the Iowa GOP nudged her yesterday about making face time with the locals if she really intends to run, so consider this an early step in that process. (She told reporters today she’ll make a decision in another month or two so that her supporters don’t feel strung along.) Oh, and she was also asked whether she could support Romney if he’s the nominee. Answer: Yep. “I’m of the mind of ABO — Anybody But Obama, at this time.” Maybe tea partiers won’t be staying home after all.

Update: Just found a better clip at CNN than the one I originally posted. The “submission” answer is here too, as well as her comments about Bachmann.

Nothing Compares: An Inspiring Day At The Iowa State Fair
Posted on August 12, 2011

It was wonderful to be back in Iowa today to visit the historic Iowa State Fair! Thank you for the invitation and tremendous hospitality, Iowa friends. We had the opportunity to meet more great Americans from the heartland and talk about the issues confronting our country today and the sort of leadership we need to move forward. Iowans have big hearts and a great deal of common sense, which makes visiting here all the more inspiring and insightful. Like the majority of Americans across the nation, the good folks here know that our country is in need of a restoration of the free market and constitutional principles that have made us strong and free and will make us that again as we get our country back on the right track.

The work ethic shown here by these farm families is so encouraging. The kids involved in healthy activities like 4-H and FFA are proud, strong young Americans who’ll grow up to help feed the country and run the nation’s economic engine – our small businesses. Keep up the great work, farmers!

What an inspiring day with great Americans. Oh, and the butter cow really is amazing… as is the fried butter-on-a-stick, the fried twinkie, the pork chops, etc.!

- Sarah Palin

Great pics, as well.

Smitty, @ The Other McCain:

More To The Point, Sarah Palin Has Weathered The Left’s Continuous Napalm Shower With Aplomb

Posted on | August 13, 2011 |

by Smitty

Dan Riehl:

Palin has two critical qualities, unique in that they combine in her. Beholden to no one, without fear, or restraint, Palin articulates today’s conservatism in a prudent, positive and cogent manner. More than that, the media, while much of it both loves and hates her, conveys her message to an audience far more broadly than they do for any other contemporary politician. I suspect, no matter who ultimately secures the 2012 Republican nomination, that will always be the case.

I agree with Dan’s whole post, but a third point (maybe a variation on the first point) is that she has already borne the brunt of an unbridled propaganda assault without crumbling. The more the minions of the Progressive Cthulhu strike at her, the stronger she becomes, and the more openly craven and stupid they appear. She rises like a phoenix from their ashes.

I can’t help but agree.

Brian1972 on August 13, 2011 at 3:10 PM

I’m more afraid of a cult of personality building up around Perry and working to hurt Palin before she can enter.

MadisonConservative on August 13, 2011 at 2:40 PM

I just don’t see his record as spotless as hers so far. I mean seriously, I know her record quite well and really, the only thing I can find to hold against her is how she handled the “retard” comment – and that’s quite inconsequential.

Perry seems to have some bigger questions in his past record. I think it’s ultimately going to be the conservatives who are independent and aren’t afraid to go ‘all-in’ backing Palin, and the ones who are more cautious and willing to go ‘better’ than ‘best’ because he ‘looks like a president’ with Perry. On top of that, I think many people are going to be surprised with how many independents and moderates she’s going to be able to pick up.

Carl Cameron at FoxNews is an idiot. Yesterday, he reported that Palin was not going to run and was there at the fair to make an endorsement, even though Palin was there telling reporters that she may run and that she won’t be endorsing anyone.

Today, he’s pushing the story that she’s going to be in Ames and will politick in the parking lot. (She’s in Dixon, IL)

He’s the same idiot who reported that Palin thought Africa was a country and that she opened her hotel room door wearing nothing but a bath robe.

Wait until people find out about Perry regarding Gardasil/Merck, his past amnesty positions, his criticism of AZ’s illegal immigration law, his support of the Trans-Texas Highway, his support of lower tuition for illegals, his lack of support for a border fence, and massive budget deficits, plus the fact that he was head of Gore’s Texas campaign against Bush.

Right now, Perry is being hyped and is the flavor-of-the-month. When the layers are pulled away, he’ll be in the middle of the pack.

Yep, even Democrat Joe Trippi was saying on Hannity last night, after her interview was over, that if her name was on the ballot she would win the Straw Poll in a walk.

She has that kind of energy and commitment among her supporters that you need.

Hannity also said that recently he sensed a shift, he is of the opinion that she will get in when he used to not think that.

He actually said that to her, he sensed an increase in her passion level, and it seems like he wants her to get in.

They haven’t outright said it, but I get the sense that Rush and Mark Levin both are wanting Palin in the race also.

Of course, then there are the ultrasensitive Palin fanatics who won’t allow you to say that Palin “quit” without accusing you of lying. I think that’s why the Palinistas are so much fun to tweak. They have some of the most award-winning outrage.

Palin stops by Reagan boyhood home

DIXON, Ill. — Sarah Palin continued her “One Nation” bus tour today here, the boyhood hometown of former President Ronald Reagan. The former governor, along with her husband, daughter Piper, and niece were shown around Reagan’s home; Rock River, where he was a lifeguard; and passed a statue in his honor. Ann Lewis, chairwoman of the Dixon Reagan Sentinel Commission escorted the Palin family around.

Palin told NBC News that it was important for her to come here, because “this is one of those places everyone in America should come to get a sense of Ronald Reagan’s foundation — to understand his humbleness and graciousness.”

At all two stops, she was greeted by numerous supporters asking for autographs and pictures. Palin also made one reference to her new granddaughter that was born a few days ago when speaking with supporter at the Reagan house.

A lot of the cars passing the bus take photos as they drive past. Some wave and a couple have then followed the bus until it stops to meet Palin.

Leaving Dixon now. Next location is unknown.

Of all the reasons I’ve seen regarding my question about what is so advantageous about waiting so long to announce, I think money, in theory, would make the most sense. But:

1. Wouldn’t an increase in contributions happen upon and after announcement?

2. Would the difference in cost(s) be all that greater than what she is spending now…especially after the above number 1?

I’m sure she is fully aware of her status as the biggest name in Republican politics. It seems counter intuitive that money would be a bigger drain the earlier she announces.

gh on August 13, 2011 at 2:07 PM

We can’t manufacture a candidate to be ready for 2012. Palin wont make it and that leaves Romney or Perry. I know what I’m getting with Romney and our resident Texans are bitterly divided on Perry. I expect he would be a better gamble than Romney, considering he seems less slick. Bachmann has really stepped to the front and I trust her. But the fact that we have only elected one rep to be POTUS is a point of real concern. Yet, we just elected a black president, so maybe it isn’t too far fetched. OTOH, the people who elected him were morons and racists and Bachmann isn’t going for that crowd.

Does your grammy know that you are still obsessing on me rather than her? Don’t tell her or it will crush her. She lets you live in her basement for free and doesn’t deserve to have her heart broken.

Explain why I praise Thatcher, Bachmann, both Bushs’, and Mother Teresa.

Stick to Palin worship. At least you’ll have company.

Histrionic Personality Disorder is based on getting attention through overt exaggerated sexuality. None of the women you listed would be considered to have overt sexual appeal. The two women you target do. Sarah Palin and Jeri Thompson, both authoritative women also have sex appeal. This is why you attack them. You have some unresolved mommy issues.

Never, because I am obsessed with csdeven. He/she/it will never be yours … he/she/it is MINE!!!!!!

However, I will share he/she/it in a mating ritual if you want.

FEARLESS, TRUE CONSERVATIVE.
Unafraid to convert voters of all stripes to embrace Free Market Capitalism and re-establish the patriotic virtues of America.

THAT is who I’m looking for……….WHO is that Warrior?

You folks are still feeding it. Please stop that.

Regardless of the lies it tells, it is in the bag for Romney, and will always be in the bag for Romney. The stupidity of others like it are precisely how we ended up with the worst possible, least conservative candidate in 2008. The stupidity of others like it are precisely why we have a President Obama today.

Do not respond in any manner at all. It presupposes that any response is meant to be encouraging, regardless of the content or context of your words. Doing so will only energize it more, and frustrate you more.

If it were a real human being, with a conscience, a sense of integrity, of honor, of decency, there might be value in attempting a dialogue or debate. Given that it is none of those things, such an attempt is a pure waste.

Focus on the topics, please.
