Republican leaders say they're just as baffled as everyone else by Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin's sudden resignation, announced outside her home in
Wasilla last Friday.
Karl Rove said today that GOP leaders were "a little perplexed" and Sen.
Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said it was "astounding."
Several prominent Republicans have also questioned whether the 2008 vice
presidential candidate was setting up an unconventional presidential run.
But they questioned how stepping down now would help her in three years.
"If this is geared for her run for the presidency in 2012, it is one of
the most politically tone deaf decisions that we've seen," said Stuart
Roy, a Republican consultant.
"I would think, if you want to run for president -- and I'm not sure
that's got anything to do with what she's doing -- that the forum of a
governorship would be a better forum than just being a private citizen,"
Grassley said today.
A former aide to Sen. John McCain called Palin's decision, "one more odd
decision in a series of odd decisions" that play into a negative image of
the soon-to-be former governor.
