Wow….Pretty devastating comments from an important political operator in the first in the nation caucus state of Iowa.
If I were advising Sarah Palin on her 2012 strategy, I would tell her she needs to make a quality decision on whether she wants to just continue to hawk her books and TV specials or if she is actually serious about running for President. One thing is clear, when politcal strategists like Mr. Robinson have an opinion like the one qoted by POLITICO, it’s time to invest the time, money, sweat and shoe leather in states like Iowa, New Hampshire and S. Carolina or to stop toying with your supporters and completely slam the door on any potential candidacy.
Former Iowa GOP political director Craig Robinson, who edits TheIowaRepublican.com, writes:
“The Sarah Palin fan club needs to realize that it takes more to run for president than just posting things or endorsing candidates via Facebook.
If she is considering running for President, she has a ton of work to do in a state like Iowa. At her current rate, she’s going to make Fred Thompson’s 2008 Iowa campaign look like a well-oiled machine.
I’ll get serious about a Sarah Palin presidential run when she gets serious about Iowa.”
