Is this the "ex-hopeful" of 2012?

(Jan 12, 2010) — It appears that the hopes of many conservatives who looked to Sarah Palin as their political “savior” were quite abruptly dashed yesterday when FOX News announced that she had signed a multi-year contract as a political commentator, a business relationship which normally requires the employee to forego all political campaigning during the time of the contract.

This appears to remove Palin from a presidential run in 2012.  It also makes it appear that she has taken money from the Saudi -connected news station rather than joining the growing mainstream populist movement against Obama for usurping the presidency and pushing to remake America in the image of the U.S.S.R..

Previous decisions by Palin last year garnered widespread support from social and fiscal conservatives: her decision to break her commitment to attend the national conservative political meeting known as CPAC after its founder took a monetary endorsement from a pro-sodomite political organization, and her decision to attend the National Tea Party Convention in Tennessee in just a few weeks.

FOX News’s announcement of the recruitment of Palin stated:

The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list, has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.

She will also participate in special-event political programming for Fox Broadcasting.

“I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News. It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news,” Palin said in a written release.

Palin will also host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel’s “Real American Stories,” a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape, which will debut in 2010.

“Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup,” said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming.

The terms of the contractual relationship have not been disclosed.  However, like former political hopefuls Mike Huckabee  and Pat Buchanan, it appears that Palin’s contract will most likely prevent her from running for office  or promoting the political campaigns of individual Republicans. If this is true, it will be difficult for her to avoid the criticism that she sold out the American people in their darkest hour,and took the money of a station which refuses to question Obama’s eligibility.

Likewise, if true, it adds to the growing suspicions about Fox News’s relationship with Saudi investors whose fellow countrymen heavily supported the Obama campaign and who politically have everything to gain by taking Palin out of the running in 2012.

Finally, it is certainly telling of the depth of critical thinking at Big Journalism.  One of the newly-released “Big” sites, published by a former employee of the Huffington Post — the ultra left-wing Blog Forum which is funded by the Obama Campaign for America — in their report on Palin’s contract signing, gushed with delight at the prospects of her being reduced to a media personality. The depth of the national crisis certainly needs a more sober estimation of present affairs, especially after all the machinations which have characterized Obama’s political career from the start.  For if Obama could be praised in anything, it is this: he is a consummate artist in the tactics of how to remove political rivals without appearing to have done so.

  1. adds to the growing suspicions about Fox News’s relationship with Saudi investors whose fellow countrymen heavily supported the Obama campaign and who politically have everything to gain by taking Palin out of the running in 2012.

    Sad. So sad.

  2. 2009 Kool-aid from the left? Pendulum. 2010 Kool-aid from the right?
    Kool-aid is kool-aid. I’ll take a glass of milk, please.
    PS. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

  3. This is precisely why I do not trust any politicians or anyone in politics. They all say things they think you want to hear to get elected. Palin could have done a whole lot to help us get our country back and she chose not to.

    Maybe Deal will have the courage not to back down; I’m hopeful, but I’m not going to bet on it. So many people are bought off with lots of money.

  4. I listened to her discussion with Mr. O last night and he indicated that she could still run for POTUS if she so wished……according to Mr. O….Fox now has her back and Palin now has an open microphone to rebut any false information that the MSM or her critics put out there about her……this job does not mean she can’t still be our hope in 2012……just as Huckabee could run in 2012 if he wanted to!


    Mr. Charlton replies: JS, many shared the same hope for Buchanan after he was viciously attacked by the entire MSM following his primary victory in NH, which attack so scared off voters that his presidential bid failed. He was then hired by FOX. After that the sweetness of the high pay and the freedom to say what he wanted took him out of the running.

    Politically, in the USA, you cannot survive if you let your mouth run; because there is just too much material your enemis can use to villify you in the press, when the race begins or draws to a close.

    Once a politician becomes a talk show host or political commentator, he must respond to a lot of things that would not be prudent to respond to prior to an election victory. So the nature of the work itself is contrary to the political necessities of running for office.

    That is why I do not share you hope.

  5. Potential governors for president have been given posts such as to China, and others are given news shows. Interesting. They ran Palin into the ground with ethics lawsuits, and forced her to drink at their poisoned trough, to cover debts. Maybe she will beat them at their own game…get lots of national coverage, paid for rather than paying for, then break loose and run free. Who knows!!
