And Palin...that's why I'm leaning towards Bachman (as a predicition).
I think Palin is trying to buy political capital with her little tour.
I think she wants to play 'King-maker'.
Don't fall over in your chair is she endorses Bachman at some point.

Or maybe they could just mud-wrestle and film it.

sounds a little like wishful thinking to me.

Romney is in much better shape now than McCain was in 2007.
There were a lot of GOP in 2008 that had no enthusiasm for McCain

also, there were a lot of Dems in 2008 that did not want Obama,

Palin's strategy may be to gin up support, not run in 2012, go out and campaign for House and Senate candidates, like she did in 2010.
Many of her candidates will win, she will have a legitimate claim to the 2016 nomination.
2016 will be an easier road for who ever the GOP nominee is.

Paul Ryan will be nowhere near anything related to 2012 due to him being PR poison at the moment in Washington. Republicans rely on older voters (due to many of them being scared of things), and Ryan just told them that their monthly gov't cheques need to be cut down.

Some people would like to see him run. Way to tighten that belt governor-fiscal responsibility.

Gee Sarah-that must just be a coinkydink


Sarah Palin pulls in to Boston

GOP miffed on Mitt’s big day

By Hillary Chabot | Thursday, June 2, 2011 | Home - BostonHerald.com



GOP megastar Sarah Palin’s bus tour rumbled into the Hub last night, driving straight into a Republican Party furor as her headline-grabbing East Coast trip threatened to overshadow today’s presidential announcement by party front-runner Mitt Romney.

“She will certainly be in New Hampshire to rain on Mitt’s parade,” wrote Massachusetts GOP spokesman Tim Buckley in an e-mail obtained by the Herald. Bay State GOP officials confirmed yesterday that Buckley wrote the e-mail, but said it was a private exchange and not an official communication.

“I guess she blew in with the storm,” sniffed state House minority leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North Reading) yesterday, a longtime Romney supporter. “She may generate a lot of attention, but given the choice between seeing Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, I’d much rather see Romney.”

But Palin fans, who breathlessly tracked her One Nation bus from New York to Boston’s Long Wharf Marriott yesterday via Twitter, gloated that Romney’s noon 2012 presidential announcement in Stratham, N.H., is doomed to obscurity.

“Mitt Romney will be talking to himself,” said Judson Phillips, leader of Tea Party Nation. “It’s stupid for him to announce in the middle of her tour. He’ll just get buried in the noise. He’ll be an afterthought.”

Romney is expected to return to the Bay State for a big-bucks fund-raiser at the Four Seasons tonight hosted by former Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker. Neither Romney nor Palin’s spokespeople returned requests for comment.



By Michael Levenson, Globe Staff

Sarah Palin emerged today from the Marriott Long Wharf hotel and said she planned to walk the Freedom Trail before heading to New Hampshire – where Mitt Romney is to announce his presidential candidacy today.

“Coincidental that we’re in the same territory at the same time,’’ said Palin , a likely Republican presidential candidate. “But more power to Mitt…and best of luck to him.’’
Palin said she remains undecided on whether she will challenge Romney and other candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Haven’t decided yet,’’ she said. “Looking at the field, and knowing that there is going to be a lot of shakeup in that lineup.’’

Palin said that when she was in New York City last night she did speak with Roger Ailes, chairman of the Fox television network, but she refused to provide details of that conversation.

During her tour of the Freedom Trail, Palin said she plans to hand out copies of the US Constitution, and that she was hopeful to run into schoolchildren on field trips.

“Hopefully, we will see kids on field trips again, and we will get them to read those Constitutions and really absorb what’s in there.’’

As she left the hotel, Palin’s entourage piled into two SUVs that are beign followed by a gaggle of reporters. There is no obvious sign of Boston police or other law enforcement presence around here.

Are the GOP candidates and potentials just one big circle with knives in each others' backs?

Can't wait to see who rises above.

I smell a conservative 3rd-party candidate making a showing.

What does she hope to accomplish with this?

Read one while you're on the road, and if you see Cain, hand him one too...

I can't get excited about any of the current crop. But if Huck enters, I'm there.

Really? His recent lying and flip flopping doesn't turn you off?

I find him to be an obvious hypocrite, but he does have a down home likability...

Huckabee truly makes my skin crawl like no other (major) US politician.

Don't blink or you'll miss the flip-flops.

SP won't get much media attention because it's wall to wall coverage of the tornadoes. She's really going to be ticked off at those tornadoes.

But I'm so glad she's made herself available to teach all the people who live where all that history actually happened. Because of course we're all still so ignorant. What would we do without her.

If she tried to hand me a copy of the Constitution I'd tell her to stick it

He's a lot more respectable than a guy who *voted twice against a bill requiring doctors to attempt to save the lives of newborn babies, and on a third occasion, prevented it from even being voted on.

But then again, so are all the GOP candidates, including Palin.

*He later said he voted against it because there was no clause that stated that the bill was "not to be construed to protect anything but babies born alive". But the fact is that that the bill did indeed include that clause.
