Palin Already Booked On Debate Day

Palin already booked on debate day

The Hill

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will headline a military appreciation event and fundraiser on May 2 in Colorado — the same day as the first GOP presidential primary debate in California.

The potential presidential candidate is scheduled to speak at an event titled "Tribute to the Troops With Sarah Palin" at Colorado Christian University, in the Denver area.

The 7 p.m. Mountain Time event falls on the same day as the NBC News-Politico debate — the first of the GOP primary season — which will be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

John Andrews, a university official, told The Denver Post he was aware of the debate when the college booked the 2008 vice presidential nominee and said he did not expect Palin to attend the debate.

"Presumably, this means she will be doing [the fundraiser] instead of any other engagement on the second," Andrews said.

The announcement comes as Palin continues to grapple with her decision on whether to run for president. Palin said recently she is still undecided.

"You enter a race to win the race, so there are still a lot of considerations that have to be made," she told the BBC in an interview that aired Monday. "We haven't made up our mind or desire to make an announcement yet as to what it is we will be doing."

Palin said the considerations include her ability to match President Obama's fundraising prowess and whether the country would be ready for an "unconventional" candidate like her.

Melissa Giller, a spokeswoman for the Reagan Presidential Library Foundation, told the Post that no likely Republican candidates have committed to attend the debate, which will be moderated by NBC "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams and Politico editor John Harris.

Palin will not collect an honorarium for the event, Andrews told the Post. According to the event's website, all of its proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), which benefits families of deceased soldiers.

"It's not a political day," Andrews said. "It's a day to honor our armed forces."

Wild Thing's comment........

Brian Williams, was the first to get the message out to attack her immediately after her fantastic speech when she was picked for the vice Presidential nominee.

And Politico give me a break. So already we know this first debate is loaded heavy from the left. I would treat NBC “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams and Politico editor John Harris, like the disgusting poison they are.

I would love to see debates held by Heritage something like that.

Palin is THE game changer and everybody, including the RINO’s and the clowns in the media know it.

Out of that Townhall list, Sarah is the only one I could happily support. Huckabee, Gingrich and Romney all turn my stomach.

Tom, I agree with you so much. Yes ONLY Sarah from that entire list and no one else.

Romney ranks way too high on this pole.
