Since Rick Perry Won’t Run, Governor Palin Is the Only Person in the Field Who Can Say She Vetoed Some of Obama’s Stimulus/Open Thread

I think it may be a good time to remind everyone that once Rick Perry announces that he’s not running for the presidency, Governor Palin will be the only one in the field who can say that she vetoed some of Obama’s stimulus package. In the unlikely event that Rick Perry enters the contest, Governor Palin will still be the only person on stage who can say that she vetoed the energy portion of Obama’s stimulus package. She didn’t just oppose Obama’s stimulus package through her words, nor did she just cast the same vote that every other moderate or conservative Republican member of Congress cast. She is the only person in America who can say that she vetoed the energy portion of Obama’s stimulus package. She doesn’t talk about this very much and the “conservative” media won’t bring this up because it’ll help her. Let’s make sure we remind GOP and GOP-leaning indies who really opposed Obama’s stimulus package and who was the only one to back up his or her opposition with deeds and not just words.
The author of the Newsweek cover story about Governor Palin indicated that he believes “in his gut Palin is running and the thing Palin most dislikes about field is she’s not in it.” If you stumble across the actual Newsweek magazine, it is a good idea to purchase it just to show people like Tina Brown that they will be rewarded by providing the Governor with fair treatment.

Sarah Palin: A Politics With Humanity
If you are wondering about which excuse pundits and reporters will use if/when they are proven wrong about whether Governor Palin will run for the presidency, Joshua Green provides it right here.
If socially moderate Ace of Spades really wants to believe Governor Palin is endorsing Rick Perry, then how does he explain her use of terms such as “strong chief executive” and “entrusted with real authority” when one considers that the Texas Governor’s position, through no fault of Perry’s, simply isn’t a “strong chief executive” and is not really a position that is “entrusted with real authority.”
What else is going on today?
