Do you think Sarah Palin will run for President?
(Excerpt) Read more at online.wsj.com ...
Looks evenly split.
But this is just people predicting.
Do not care as we have our nominee, Governor Rick Perry.
I predict no - but I’ve been wrong before.
Of course she is running.
LOL. Then why are you bothering to post on this thread?
Don’t know, but I’m tired of the speculation and the rah rah ‘of course she will run she is just to brilliant to announce yet’ from a few people here.
I would like to see her run, and I would support her if she did, in spite of some wackos here, but I won’t treat her like a candidate until (if) she acutally announces and then I will put her under the same scrutiny I do all other candidates on the issues.
I really like Palin, but I also do not see her as God’s gift to American politics.
Yep!!! Wild bear, woods, etc. :)
Boy, some of the dumb arse comments...you can tell there are a whole bunch of commie thugs commenting...
Just like in 2000 when nobody vetted that Compassionate Conservative guy.
Well stated, FRiend.
I like Palin too, but the worshipful stuff among some has gone over the top.
And I’ve noticed that it’s turning some people off of her.
Nope. Have heard that Huckeybee likely ha$ $en$ible rea$on$ for $taying with Fox and not running. I’m guessing that $arah’$ in a $omewhat $imilar $ituation.
If she wasn’t going to run, then.....why release all her 24,000 email from her governorship days? Why show up in Iowa on the day straw poll is to be taken from Republican Presidential nominees? Why engage in a One Nation Bus Tour from town to town talking about a Constitutional America? None of these things nets her anything, no gains at all, UNLESS she’s going to run.
Sarah Palin knows full well she’s an outsider. The Establishment Republicans definitely don’t want her; a lot of the Republican Money Baggers don’t want her either. But it’s she and Bachmann who are the crowd drawers. Mitt Romney would be a disastrous nominee, and a Obama reelection would be assured if he got the nomination. And Rick Perry - as we will see in the weeks ahead - is going to pose a few problems of his own, regarding Conservatism. Sarah Palin is smart, and she knows what is stacked against her to win the nomination. I assume that same intelligence has shown her exactly how to fund her run. She’s going to need every single committed Conservative to back her unrelentingly if she’s to succeed. She’s the only one with the courage to stand up for pure Conservatism who also has held an Executive Government position, unlike Bachmann. Sarah is the best choice. I think she will run. And if she does, I’m in for her.
I also predict no, and I agree with the WSJ poster who said that......
“Palin would be splitting the vote because Bachman and Palin both appeal to the same social conservative demographic”.
Because Perry supporters are the worst.
The BEST ticket will be Palin/Rubio, though. :-)
There’s always hope. And I’ve got a whole lot of it!
