Palin will up the ante but not announce run in Iowa speech

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - Sarah Palin's speech to an Iowa tea party rally on Saturday will come on the three-year anniversary of her memorable address to the Republican National Convention in 2008, when she became GOP vice presidential nominee and an instant conservative darling.

Much has changed since then.

    me thinks the speech will be SLAM OBAMA, SLAM OBAMA, everything is OBAMA'S fault. One thing Sarah does know how to do is bash this president. FoxNews pays her very wll to do it too.

    The message was received well by her. The poll says 74% need her to back off. Very few are interested to hire her!

    I really only have one interest regarding Sarah Palin and her visit to Iowa. Will there be any corn-dogs there for her?

    Quite the opposite.
    Nothing has changed since then. Palin still spews rhetoric laden one-liners proving she hasn’t the faintest clue as to what she is talking about. She talks tough, but cowers into her role as a victim when asked to actually substantiate her ramblings.
    She’s nothing more than a bigot who shamelessly takes the money of the poor white trash that supports her.
    Good work, McCain.

    Oh how I wish that someone would convince Palin to win. As an independent my first question to her is what kind of an example has she given by quitting before completing her sworn duty. She seemed more interested in selling books and keeping her name alive. Personally l want to hear more from Hunstman.

    "Much has changed since then." ~ but Palin hasn't changed – same lack of intellectual curiosity. It seems that in every recent picture of Palin she looks more and more mentally impaired?

  12. PD.

    Why does the MSM STILL focus on this woman? She will never win. She is just soaking up the last fifteen minutes of her very dubious fame.

    How does she up the ante from being a non-candidate who refuses to make up her mind about running for president? Would she start answering questions from the press (any questions, not just whether she would run)?

    She's like Bachmann - all shrill noise and no substance. All criticism and no solutions.

    Bachmann and Perry are in a pee-ing contest now. She's a liar most of the time, and he DID use the stimulus money to balance his budget instead of creating DECENT PAYING jobs (he added gov't jobs).

    Ignore both of all. They will not make it to the white house. This country needs SANE PEOPLE.
