Governor Palin at Liberty Island

**This Palin Lounge will update through the day. Scroll down for additional links and commentary**

As I mentioned on Tammy Radio, we intend on setting up a “Palin Lounge” page in which all the TAM Palinistas can confab. In the meantime, we’ll experiment with a daily Palin Open thread with linkage and commentary. There really is no other way to stay on top of all that’s happening. With Palin announcing the One Nation tour is going national this is really is an attempt to stay informed and on top of the news. Links will be added to the main page as events warrant.

**NOTE: Separate from the regular blog policy, this thread will also accept links from known TAMs, to known web sources. They will still have to be moderated, but will be approved if they meet the ‘known’ standard. So feel free to add to the linkage fray if you see something, pics, etc that should be seen :)**

Palin takes wait-and-see approach to 2012 race

While other Republicans have already assembled full-blown campaign operations or formally declared their candidacies, Palin continues to suggest that a final verdict about the race could come as late as this fall.

“Why should everybody jump in there right now and start beating each other up in the primary process, showing the other guys our playbook already?” Palin told reporters Thursday evening at a clambake in the New Hampshire town of Seabrook. “Why should we do such a thing? There is plenty of time for that.”

Palin disputed former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s recent demand that uncertain potential candidates “get off the sideline” and join the race so Republicans can begin to figure out which candidate is best positioned to defeat President Obama.

“It’s too early,” she said earlier in the day, during a tour of historic sites in Boston. “That is one thing that I disagree with Pawlenty on is him believing that it all needs to happen right now. I think he says that because that was his strategy, but I obviously don’t follow anybody’s strategy and just don’t go with the flow in the conventional way of doing things.”

    Piper is just the best, any mom and dad would be super-proud of.

    People say they like Sarah Palin b/c she is like them. Well I can also say that Piper is just like my 10 yr. old daughter. How wonderful Piper is. With all that the Palin’s are and have been going through we can say they are just like us. Piper is cool…….and as she gets older I hope she remembers this wonderful time in her life with her mom and grandmother etc….

    PALIN 2012!!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE….I do not mind begging…..PALIN 2012!!!!

    Piper protecting her Mom, that is priceless! We have always known she’s the real Palin troublemaker 😉

  4. RuBegonia says:

    Piper is on the job ~ Secret Service in training ~ as she protects her mom in the crowds. Watch her elbow in between Gov. Palin and pushy reporters and offer up a “2 minute warning” glare in the background. Priceless.

    Check out this picture of Piper – keeping a watchful eye while Mom and Grandma pray and reflect at Boston’s Old North Church.,0,5518935.story

    From the Boston Herald today, a great article.

    “Mitt Romney will be talking to himself,” said Judson Phillips, leader of Tea Party Nation. “It’s stupid for him to announce in the middle of her tour. He’ll just get buried in the noise. He’ll be an afterthought.”

  7. Nativevoice says:

    Tammy thank you for starting the Palin Lounge. Love it.

  8. SteveBayrd says:

    As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday, Piper Palin has the warrior stare. I saw it in Iraq in Special Operations warriors. Those who know it recognize it. It happens in both men and women. It is something inside that shows a strength and willingness to confront evil. I saw it in Piper when reporters and unknowns approached her Mom. Piper has the best genes from Mom and Dad. That little lady is going places!

    Here’s some raw footage from today in Boston from @BarbaricBlog

    Here’s a great video from Boston’s Freedom Trail – Piper is made honorary Junior Ranger and presented a ranger doll.

    Piper’s mom for President!

  12. BostonBruin says:

    What’s interesting about the clambake tonight, is that the Gov. will be meeting with folks from the NH Cornerstone organization which is “dedicated to preserving New Hampshire’s traditional values, limited government, and free markets through education, information, and advocacy.”

    Seems as though she’s going to work thru the grass-roots organizations, not the GOP machine. Excellent.

  13. rosebud2186 says:

    That little Piper won my heart with that slick-down-the-baby’s-hair move on sweet baby Trig @ the GOP convention.

    I think Palin supporters are just as protective of Piper as the Momma Grizzly herself. The media better keep off this child!

    Liked DougM’s comment over on the Sondrakistan post (the cartoon): “If by ‘idiot’ you mean someone who gets America, then yeah.”

  15. Nativevoice says:

    It takes every bit of grace I have to listen to Krauthammer on Fox. He has that haughty attitude every time he takes about Palin. Like she is just a joke. Last night the governor was unschooled and tonight….it is Bachmann’s turn.
    Tammy listening to you for over a year, maybe longer because I don’t remember when I signed up, has truly helped me understand the forces against the American way of life.
    Except for the 5 O’clock news and special guest, I have stopped watching Fox. There is definitely something going on at Fox for all the news reporters and commentators to be repeating the same line….’she is not running’. If any other possible 2012 candidate was doing what Palin is doing they all would be saying ‘such such is running’.
    Funny that the lamestream media thinks she’s running but not Fox. Interesting.

    Tammy you are spot-on again!
    This is what I need( yes I said I ) to get my daily United States of America Sarah Palin fix and of course her blessed family.
    Thank you!!

    Here is a great article from Hillbuzz about a Frank Lutz focus group in Arizona

  18. Bash1955 says:

    Piper just made my day! btw this is a great idea Tammy.

  19. Ginger says:

    Here is a link to a guestbook I set up to express thoughts and support of Sarah Palin. It’s starting out small but I know it will grow! I love the idea of the Palin Lounge, Tammy!

    p.s. The guestbook is moderated so your comments won’t show up immediately. Please pass the link around!

    Piper has a special place in our hearts. She is adorable, she’s spunky, she’s loving, she’s stubborn. She also must be one reason that Gov. Palin has not yet finalized her decision to run for POTUS. The Gov can look ahead over the next decade and feel confident that her older children are on a good path. Her youngest will always have the love and support he needs to thrive. That leaves Piper. If the Gov goes to the White House she is sentencing this delightful girl to life in a fishbowl for her entire teenage years. It is not an easy decision for any to make. I think one reason for the bus tour was to give the Gov a good opportunity to see how her public, political life outside of Alaska would impact Piper. Sure, it is exciting, but it’s also quite boring for a child. It’s hurtful to see folks demean your Mom. It is tiring to hear your Mom give the same answers over and over to different groups of people. It’s annoying when MSM asks stupid questions and you want to tell them to shut up, but your Mom stands there, smiles and tries to answer the questions.
    The Gov is not going to try to fool herself into thinking that everything will be just fine. She’s a Mom and she knows the decisions she makes, no matter how noble, will change forever the life of her child. During this bus tour, we are seeing the many faces of Piper. The Gov is seeing them as well. She’s making an assessment of what is at stake, for our country and for her daughter. I would guess when the tour is over, the Gov and Todd will discuss the measures they will need to take to protect Piper. Once that has been settled, it will be GameOn for sure! You betcha’!
