NRO's Katrina Trinko reports at The Corner that Gov. Palin’s decision to keynote a charity event benefitting military families in Colorado rather than take part in the first GOP presidential primary debate does not mean that she will not run for president in 2012, according to one of the governor's top aides:
“It has nothing to do with a decision [about running for president in 2012]. The Governor said the other day that she will make a decision about that in the coming months,” Tim Crawford, the treasurer of Palin’s PAC, told National Review Online.Hmmm. Help raise funds for the families of our fallen troops, or be a party to a rigged debate with questions from two slobbering Obama enablers from the leftist media? That was an easy choice for for any Reagan conservative, Reagan Library not withstanding. Honor the troops, not the Democrat/Media Complex.
Palin will be the keynote speaker at the Colorado Christian University’s “Tribute to the Troops” event, which the university describes as “a military and veterans appreciation rally and charity benefit.” The benefit will be held in Lakewood, Colo. on May 2, the same day Politico and NBC News have scheduled the first GOP debate at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif.
