My only worry with Mitty is can Dems put him in via crossover voting, knowing that it will incite a 3rd party run and a likely Clintonian plurality win for Obama.

“.....does a day pass without Karl Rove popping up on Fox to push Romney?”

Does a day pass without Rove popping up on Sean Hannity’s radio or TV show to do the same?

I’m sick of Karl Rove.

This is just to keep the hopes up of all the Palinphils out there. The next rumor will be ‘the movement to draft her at the Republican convention’. Then the write in ballots. Then the 2016 campaign.

.
There may be some truth to that.

Let’s let the whole gang decide.

If she is so polarizing, how can she help the GOP nominee? It’s a contradiction, one that the media whores love to push on us. It’s the Goebbels “Big Lie” all over again.

Sometimes, I wish people would stop and think about what they are saying/posting.

Cain accuser attorney: Client sees ‘no value’ in revisiting issue

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2802657/posts

This is Cain winning. Complete abject surrender to Cain by the smear bots. They were offered the chance to defend their accusations in the open and the smearbots ran.

Now the question remains, who shopped the smear around to Politico? I suspect Romney and Rove are the authors. Both of the them have a history of these sort of sleazy political tactics

She would be a fool to run if the filing deadline is over for SC already and since I don’t think she is a fool...I doubt this rumor is true. Of course if the media’s lynching of Herman Cain works all bets are off.

If she did reconsider, she could add “indecisive” to her resume. I don’t think Palin wants to do that.

I agree that the crossover voting is a potential problem, but I don't think it has too much of a total effect.

Besides, most liberals really believe that Mitt is the most formidable candidate because he's the only one who sounds reasonable to them, with all his big government solutions and oily non-answers to controversial issues.

They would vomit if they ever had to actually vote for Mitt, but they'd vomit less for him than any other Republican in the race. And they think that's why we're stupid for not wanting him!

No, I didn't vote for him. Not many on this forum did. But this forum is a tiny minority in the GOP party.

The bottom line is WE are the Republicans in Name Only. The majority of the party actually tends towards milquetoast big government simps.

Usually. Hopefully, this time enough Republicans will be smarter than usual.

I have no insight whatsoever into Mrs. Palin's thinking, nor her ambitions.

But I have been saying since the Summer of 2009 that the 2012 election would be most like 1860 - a four-way contest of incompatible visions with war as the likely outcome, since both major visions are now too strong to surrender, and neither can live with the other.

I think Romney has the nomination sewn up. And I think his nomination will be the GOP's suicide note.

Depending on WHEN he is recognized as the nominee, a conservative alternative will certainly emerge. If Mitt locks it up by March, there will be plenty of time to get a real (plausible, I mean) conservative on the ballot.

Whether the Fourth Party will be a Bell-Everett "can't we all just get along" party, recoiling from the thunder over the horizon, or whether it will be a real communist party growing out of OWS is impossible now to say.

Buckle up. It's gonna be a hell of a ride.

The “childish and ridiculous” PDSer brand/dress seems to fit you quite well.

Where did you get confirmation it was Wilson?

I believe these rumors about Palin from anonymous sources the same way I believed the rumors about Cain. They’re garbage. Somebody is trying to sabotage the campaign. Fighting between the Conservatives gives us Romney as the candidate.

KC, I love and admire Palin and I have been a supporter of hers from day one. My support for her has been steady, strong and unwavering.

However, I believe this article is nothing but rubbish and has only served to bring out the PDSer scum.

Today, I would NOT want her to run. The vast majority of the people of this country do not deserve ANY time from this great lady, let alone her leadership.

I will always be fond of Palin and wish that dear woman success in anything she chooses to do in life.

Simply put, America, a lost, lazy, ignorant and ungrateful nation, does not deserve a great leader.

Many long years ago God blessed this country, but I am not so certain that He hasn’t changed His mind.

The recent “fire storm” that has “hit” Herman Cain is pure, unadulterated political smear tactics. There is no reason to speculate on Palin due to same.

One thing I always get a kick out of is seeing the same posters who were constantly berating Palin, calling her “damaged goods,” and endlessly posting threads about polls in which the GOP, the Tea Party, their next-door neighbors, etc., all ‘hate’ her, and emphatically adding that she should NOT run...

are now the same ones who jump onto every Palin thread and condemn and belittle her for ‘not’ running! Heh.

One thing I will give you... you are very consistent and you are consistently unpleasant. There is seldom a post wherein you are not doing your apparent best at being demeaning, rude and insulting.

You do not try to build, you try to break.

I love her and would shout for joy if true.

Write in candidates can win, just ask Mclusky or whatever in Alaska.

Also the deadline for a few States has come and gone, but I doubt they have printed the ballots yet?

Has anybody ever attempted to file late anywhere? Who would complain? Other candidates would look bad doing so.
