Baited breathe, we waited. All for naught.
A lack-luster rank and file bunch of GOP hopefuls have populated the landscape lately. Many were looking for that dark horse candidate to stomp on
the liberal-progressive machine that has been driving our economy into ditch after ditch after ditch for the last three years.
Was Palin to be the One?
Many would say no. Her abrupt departure from Alaskan politics left many with a bad taste in their mouths. After a 47 - 53 loss to the Obama-Biden
machine, Palin seemed happy to illustrate what real conservatives were all about.
"Don't retreat, just reload" became a common saying from her reality tv show.
As months rolled by and the bland cast of characters filled the scenes, Palin fans and enemies alike, looked forward to the conservative lightning rod
Her latest appearence, however, was just more tease.
ABC News’ Sheila Marikar reports:
Sarah Palin’s Iowa speech sounded a lot like a stump speech.
She made frequent references to “my plan” — “My plan is a bonified working man’s plan, my plan is about empowerment.”
Her mention of the “challenge of who and what will replace” Obama brought the crowd to their feet.
She also threw in a few “Palinisms”:
About polls, she said, “they’re for strippers and cross country skiers.”
She dubbed the president’s handling of the economy as “Obama’s bullet train to bankruptcy.”
It seemed like she was about to announce something.
But she did not.
She thanked Iowa and walked off stage a few minutes ago.
I, for one, wouldn't want to guess on what her presidency would be like. Without her announcing, speculation will have to remain.
But how long can she string us along, her detractors and fans, before we tire of the tease?
The clock is ticking. . . . .
