BLITZER’S BLOG: The Palin guessing game

(CNN) – Sarah Palin has been delivering campaign-style speeches in recent days – still leaving open whether she will actually run for the Republican presidential nomination. For now, she seems to want the best of all worlds: she teases a presidential run while still maintaining her millions of dollars in income from her paid speeches, books, reality TV shows and Fox News. She no doubt also loves all the attention.

In her latest speech before the Tea Party Express in New Hampshire, she certainly hit all the major points the tea party movement wants to hear: smaller government, lower taxes, reduced federal regulations. But she spoke only in generalities without getting into any specifics as to how she would achieve those objectives. I heard a lot of politically popular clichés.

    And she surely knows how to hand it out and still get that PAY

    Palin is a FRAUD and her followers don't see it!!! All they see is a LOUD MOUTH bashing the President and that's it. Her crowds get smaller and smaller but yet her time of the TUBE is over the top. She has NO POLICIES – just bashing!!!

    Obama/Biden 2012!!

    Palin is not running. She will remain politically active, but will not run.
