Palin kicks off book tour amid fresh speculation of a White House bid

Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) - A political rock star welcome and adoring chants of "Go Sarah" greeted Sarah Palin at a Phoenix bookstore as the former Alaska governor kicked off her latest book tour that, to some, also looks like a much hyped, early bid for the White House.

Palin's book, "America by Heart," went on sale Tuesday. The former 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee appeared at a Barnes & Noble Bookstore shaking hands, chatting up supporters and signing books.

    Hey Dingbat Half-Wit! The POTUS wrote a children's book and is donatiing ALL the proceeds to help support the families of those veterans you like to talk so much about.
    What are you doing with the proceeds from YOUR BOOK? How aout the proceeds from the OTHER books?
    Any of that money going to help support any charities, or needy Amerikuns?

    Didn't think so.

    OK Kids – we've tried the hate, fear and lies from that woman for 18 months – it AIN'T working.

    Time to go back to cooperation for ALL U.S. citizens - not just a wealthy few.

    "The cause that we all need to be engaged in is stopping the Obama, Pelosi, Reid fundamental transformation of America---------------------------------------------------
    Yes, by all means because that 'fundamentsl transformation of America' that you are so focused on stomping out is nothing but the President telling Big Business, Insurance companies, Wall Street etc, YOU'RE NOT RUNNING AMOK ANY MORE!!
    These are your BIG DONORS Sarah, and they must be protected even at the risk of putting the recuperation of the country's economy a distant 3rd on your list of priorities. This is why your Party is fighting tooth and nail to extend the tax-cuts to the wealthy. This is why Senators and congressmen DID NOT WANT BP held rsponsible for the oil spill. Your Party is the Party of the wealthy. You are there to protect their interests, NOT the interests of average Americans.
    After all, what's worth more to you Sarah:contributors from the top 2% or those that could only give you $5 a shot?

    The fact that this drooling idiot has so many followers is further proof of the dumbing down of America.

    The next to last paragraph still shows that this woman can't put a sentence or paragraph together if her life was in peril. WTF is she saying? Her record? Her policies?
    This woman is delusional and everyone who thinks that somebody as uneducated and dumb as her can become our President needs a lobotomy. Yeah, right let's stop Obama, Pelosi and Reid and give the US what every Americans wants secession from the Union, exorcisms, hate, even more division of the rich/middle class/poor, non ethics,
    No, you whore, you don't need a title but i just gave you one. Your so called cause stinks even more than you do. You are going to hit rock bottom soon and you will be sent to an insane asylum because you won't be able to stand that nobody loves you anymore!! mccain will pay for this in the after life.

    Just watched the piece on Sarah Palin. When people say those who don't like Sarah Palin are just afraid of her, I agree. It has nothing to do with her gender or her politics, such as they are. I'm afraid she honestly believes all the things she says. I fear that in this "reality show age" of our society her unending self promotion campaign will morph into a Presidential campaign and she has shown me nothing to make me think she has any idea of what to do should she win. I'm afraid enough people will take her serious enough to actually send her to the White House. Yes, I'm afraid of Sarah Palin. I am however more afraid of those who believe that she is capable of being President of this country. They terrify me.

    She is there again to put a hole in peoples pockets. She is always singing "taking back our country"! I do wonder whether in her book there is a single page mentioning what she will do to move the country forward!

  8. The GOP are evil

    Go ahead and run for the presidency. The Democrats will win not just by a majority of electoral votes but they'll win by getting ALL the electoral votes. The president wouldn't even have to run an official campaign. All Palin would have to do is run her mouth and showcase her stupidity. She's her own worst enemy.

    It's another sign of how far our country has fallen when a dangerously ignorant person is seriously discussed as a possible presidential candidate. The American electorate seems to be scarily comfortable with stupidity in our leaders – god help us all!!!

    Evidently Sarah did not get the memo from the Koch brothers and Dick Armey that she is not going to be the GOP presidential candidate in 2012. Poor Sarah.

    While Palin responded to entreaties from her fans, the scrum of reporters was not allowed to ask her questions. Instead, reporters were left to speak with her supporters who'd gathered to see her.

    That says it all. Palin is such an ignorant coward.

    Rock star? Palin is the political Barney.

    The adults in the room from all political points of view know that she's not real.

    We just have to hope that her true believers will grow out of it.

    Unfortunately, while Barney's messages were usually benign, Palin's are often malignant.

    Yes I am a liberal and Yes Palin scares me but it isn't because I don't like her, which is not far from the truth. She scares me because she doesn't have anyones self intrest but her own. She thinks her opinion is the only right opinion out there and if any of you honestly think she care one iota about this country you have been drinking from her cup just a little two heavy. Palin's intrests are hers and hers only. She is a quitter who likes to dish it out but cant take it when it is dished back.

    Once again, thank you CNN for the plethora of Palin stories. They keep us safe. As you read the comments from the looney, deranged, drug addled left in response, just think of how dangerous the world might be if they didn't have this outlet for their insane hatred. You can just see them frothing over their keyboards.

    And yet another story about Palin being SUCKED IN by CNN and the other Medias that allows her to keep going, and going, and going, and going!!! And she SUCCEEDS in this because she just “set the stage” for her OWN Reality Show – "Sarah Palin runs for President" and it would be “brought to you by” CNN!!

    The American people who SUPPORT Sarah better WAKE UP and smell the SHREWDNESS of their leader who ONLY wants to take their $$$$$$$$$. They should realize that she has NO INTENTIONS of being their Presidential leader (which in REALITY, would NEVER happen). She will QUIT at the moment that would allow her to "step out in a most gracious way – blaming her family"!!! Come on people – READ between the lines. In reality, READ and STOP listening to just FOX, Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, and the ginGRINCH!

    Happy Thanksgiving and the President is "pardoning" the TURKEYS right now at the WH!!
