Governor Palin Takes One Nation Bus Tour to Reagan’s Illinois Home

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 13, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

Governor Palin’s bus tour is in full swing–in Iowa yesterday, in Illinois today.

NBC’s Alex Moe reports:

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.

Visiting Reagan’s Humble and Inspiring Beginnings

Posted by Ron Devito on August 13, 2011

Ronald Reagan once said, “While I take inspiration from the past, like most Americans, I live for the future.” It’s because I believe in America’s future that I take such inspiration from our past. We just visited Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Dixon, Illinois. This beautiful small town along the Rock River is where Reagan learned the values that shaped him – the same values that have historically made America strong – thrift, hard work, fortitude, optimism, and courage in the face of adversity.

As a nation, we must reconnect with those values if we’re to truly restore all that is good and strong about the USA. Meeting the fine Americans in this small town on the river where Reagan saved 77 lives brought all this home for me.

Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who keep Reagan’s memory alive. The restoration and tours of our beloved President’s home are significant. Thank you, Dixon!

Palin To Declare Three Weeks From Today At Tea Party Meeting In Iowa? Sign & Portents

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on August 13, 2011

“I am still considering a run”

On September 3rd the odds are that Sarah Palin, keynote speaker at the Waukee Iowa Tea Party extravaganza will announce that yes, she is a candidate for the presidency of the United States of America. The Chicago Tribune reports Palin as advising She said that “practically speaking” September would probably be a deadline for her decision.”

After interviewing Palin today at the event Sean Hannity stated that he now believes she is leaning towards running.

On the other hand she may have made such an announcement sometime in August and will use the Waukee event as her first campaign foray in Iowa.

She may, alternatively, announce that she supports the aims and aspirations of the Tea Party with utmost personal commitment, and will endorse one of the declared, or soon to be declared candidates, whose policies best match those of the Tea Party, and of course herself, and thus are, she believes, in the best interests of America.

The “great enigma”  has addressed the issue a number of times at the Iowa State Fair yesterday with each commentator viewing her answer through the prism of their own prejudices, or hopes or best guess. 

Thus Fox News’s Carl Cameron finds Palin’s statement that  “I don’twant to be perceived as stringing people along,” as indicating she won’t run whereas the San Francisco Chronicle takes this statement:

Dozens of journalists swarmed around Palin as she exited the hog barn to hear her say that she … hasn’t decided yet whether she’s going to run for president. But she’s close, she said. Next month. Definitely.

“Practically speaking,” Palin said, “it has to be.” 

to warrant the headline:

“As Sarah Palin wavers, Rick Perry may fill niche 

Which of these scenarios will play out is known to only Sarah and Todd Palin it appears, despite what the various pundits predict, but it is certain that a decision will have been made before, at the event or, in the case of an endorsement, very shortly afterwards.

This has been clearly indicated by Sarah Palin herself, as recently  as last week on the Sean Hannity show where she advised that:

“Well, legally, of course, there are time frames, and that time is coming rapidly in front of all of us. August and September you do have to start laying out a plan if you are to be one to throw your hat in the ring, so that’s basically the time frame.”

After years of watching and waiting, hoping praying, riding the roller coaster of downward despair and then a swift rise to new heights for the legions, 3 million on Facebook alone, of dedicated Palin fans the waiting appears to be nearly over-just three weeks to go!

The home base of some of the most loyal Palinistas is the blog “Conservatives4Palin” which runs, sometimes hourly, updates on all things Palin  and has a lively commentary posting. They have helped organize a meet up of their readers from across America for the big day which is, significantly on the three year anniversary of her earth shaking introductory speech to the nominating convention.

Lately, as sure signs that the end time is approaching, nerves are getting frazzled, older supporters are metaphorically holding the hands of the more nervous newer or younger ones and auguries are being watched which would do justice to ancient Rome.

Sarah appears on television, and a discussion breaks out on her hair style. Is it up or down? Is it  in the “third of her television styles”? Where is the parting? Which, to aficionados, has some sort of coded message about her intentions. 

Then there is the problem of Palin’s pledge to local Alaskan talk show hosts Bob and Mark that she would make the announcement on their program. If she makes the announcement she is running, should she do so, in Iowa on the 3rd, will a live link up be arranged so the pledge can be honored?

One thing is certain in all this conjecture, which grateful for the nerves of all involved (including those of probable the rival candidates and the media) whichever way the decision goes it will shake up the campaign which is, in reality, in a holding pattern until Palin decides. 

With Perry now in the race, Palin’s decision will conclude the candidate list, absent the entering of Giuliani or Bolton, either of whom would be unlikely to gain much traction at this juncture, with the possible exception of Giuliani if there is a deadlock.

For her legions of fans, and one would suspect, for the legions of bloggers, editorial writers, and talking heads, an announcement that she is running will be a moment of joy. 

This too for the left as well as the right, the left will go berserk as they will have a target to take all their frustrations out on the failure of their idol President Obama to live up to their expectations, but certainly, for all involved, it will be an historic moment whichever way the decision goes.

Scott Conroy: Palin Lays Out What Her Campaign Would Look Like

Posted by joshpainter on August 13, 2011

– by Josh Painter
RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy observes that Gov. Sarah Palin today showed “that she has done some serious thinking about her potential strategy,” should she decide to get into the 2012 presidential race. Conroy asked Gov. Palin what kind of campaign she would run. She answered:

“Each campaign that I’ve ever run in these 20 years of elected office have been kind of unconventional — right, Todd? We’ve always been outspent two to one, 10 to one, five to one; never won any polls heading into election night but usually won the election. So it would be unconventional and very grass-roots. Very grass-roots. And I wouldn’t be out there looking for hires out of that political bubble that seem to result in the same old ideas, the same old talking points, the things that Americans get so sick and tired of hearing and kind of suffering through.

“You know, we want new. We want new energy. We want conviction and passion and candidness — even if through that candidness you make mistakes and you say things like ‘the executive power in Texas is different than the executive power in Alaska.’ . . . I’m just saying that candidness, not fearing so much what the interpretation is going to be when it comes to the comments and positions you’re articulating but just speaking from the heart and saying, ‘Here’s where I think America needs to head, and here’s how I think we can turn the economy around, and here’s what I’ve done in the past to show you truly a foundation of where my beliefs come from of what works in a small town, in a state, in a big industry like oil and gas — what is it that can be done to turn things around.’ I’ll express that and not fearing what the ramifications of the expressions would be.”
