I like Frank Luntz, I enjoyed his analysis of speeches and debates during the 2008 primary & general election Presidential race. He is an expect on language. What words work, and I respect his opinion. I don’t always agree. I didn’t agree with his assessment on her July 3rd announcement.
I would disagree with Luntz that this is proof that she is running in 2012. I think it is very clear she isn’t shrinking away from the national stage. She is going to be a potent weapon in 2010 race for conservative candidates who are fortunate to have her campaign for them.
Rush Limbaugh also asks what other elected official talks like this – regarding the media and the growth of government? (I know not all of my readers are Rush fans, and I can’t say I listen to him much, but he does provide some interesting commentary.) There is a lot of reaction. Her speech was at the top of Memorandum and Drudge for a good part of the day (no longer as there are other newsworthy items).
