On July 9, 2009, Ronald Kessler (Washington Insider) published an artile entitled “CPAC Chairman: Palin Not Ready for Presidential Run.”
When I read the artile, my first thought was, Here is Keene, President of the ACU, which hosts the CPAC convention each year, calling Palin a “whinner”, and then he goes on to whine alot more than Palin when he said:
“She confirmed that she will be speaking to CPAC in person, then her office said she was going to be there, they were just working out the logistics. Thn all of a sudden, she couldn’t be there. At the last minute she was going to do a video tape. We don’t usually do that, but we said OK. Then it turned out they couldn’t get the video tape done, they couldn’t figure how to do it or something. And so she just didn’t come. Now that was our instance, and it also happened to a number of other groups.”
Mr. Keene- Here is a list of the ethics complaints filed against Palin, along with the dates they were filed-
Complaints 13 and 14 were filed on Jan. 26, 2009, just a month before the2009 CPAC Convention opening day on February 26, 2009. I understand that both complaints aledge that 2 of Palin’s top aides worked on state time to benefit Palin’s interests. Mr. Keene, would they be the same people that “couldn’t get the video tape done, because they didn’t know how to do it or something”?
On 3/18/09, just 18 days after the CPAC Convention ended, complaint number 15 was filed. That complaint contended Palin used staff, property, time and equipment for partisan political gain. Mr. Keene, would the staff, property, time and equipment mentioned in this complaint have had anything to do with the “video tape she and her office just didn’t know how to do, or something”? And to boot, attending the CPAC Convention in Virginia for 3 days would have had Andree McLeod (filed 3 of the complaints against Palin) running whooping in the streets, because she now had found some jello that was ready to stick to the wall. Mr. Keene, have you forgotten, or have you not paid close enough attention to the fact that Palin’s detractors, as well as other fleas, had Palin strapped to the electric chair, and were just waiting for someone like you to hit the “juice on” button? She couldn’t leave Alaska sir, she was already strapped down.
It didn’t take much effort to find that Dave Keene, President of the American Conservative Union, apparently has ulterior motives. He supported Romney in the 2008 primaries. It also didn’t take much effort to find that Ronald Kessler also supported Romney in the 2008 Primaries.
Here is a link to an article in Free Republic writing about Keene’s “endorsement” of Romney, and, his lame reasons for that support-
Here is a link to a Ronald Kessler article, published in Dec. 2007, entitled “Romney is the Real Deal.” I kid you not, take a look at what Romney spin looks like, cause you are gonna see alot more of it in the near future-
I have no idea what will happen with Palin, now that she has resigned from her post as Alaska Governor. I will patiently wait to see where she goes, and what she does from here on out. If I like what she says and does, and who she supports, if anyone, I will judge her on that basis. To think that the Romney campaign machinery is not already in full play for 2012 is foolish. Timing is everything, and, if Palin has her sights on 2012, she is already behind the one Kessler and Keene believe is “The Real Deal.”
