Sarah Palin Could Run....And Win
My semi-fertile mind | Fantail1952

Posted on 12/18/2011 10:00:30 AM PST by fantail 1952

Many have truly lost interest in the Republican primary and its "candidates." None appear fully acceptable, all have major faults and excess baggage that could easily cause them to lose to an absolutely unre-electable sitting president.

While polls are often flawed and many are absolutely biased, I have seen a consistent trend that any particular GOP candidate VS Obama consistently loses, given a choice between "Any Republican" and Obama, the Republican wins handily. What this means is that the majority of voters, about 75% in the GOP in fact, are totally unhappy with the choices offered.

It is my considered opinion that an overwhelming majority of both Republican rank-and-file, and independent voters alike, are seeking someone to challenge Obama....other than the candidates offered.

Who does this leave?

As I recall, some four months ago, about the time of her triumphant tours and speeches, Sarah Palin stated that she "would run the most unconventional campaign ever." To this point, if she reverses course and comes in late to the fray, that would be the "most unconventional" move ever!

These endless and largely meaningless drivel-driven so called debates have done little more than pissed off many conservatives. By opting out in October, Sarah was insulated from this nonsense, and actually strengthened her desirability.

If, and this is a big IF, she decided to reenter any time before the Iowa caucus, she would likely show amazing support.

On the other hand, waiting to come in after the January mayhem, when deep divisions have made a clear frontrunner's unlikely, who better to fill the void?

Or even, with no leader in delegate count going into the convention, and with the prospect of internal war within the party, who better to be selected to heal the divisions and lead the GOP to victory?

Lets face it folks, we could well see the most unconventional campaign for nomination in the history of our nation!

But then, there is also another option........

I’m a big believer in group prayer. All of us Freepers should say one today in hopes of changing her mind and giving Sarah the strength to move forward. I am along with my family.

Just reading that thread about the fish that follow yellow naturally but can be taught to follow blue, and how opinion can move back and forth in the broad masses depending on who is most persistent or who gives a doggone!

Oh, yeah, we are all POd.

NOT!

This is great. The Republicans have had and continue to have great candidates ~ even those we chewed up and spat out.

The Democrats have nothing, and come the Fall next year they'll still have nothing and when they start campaigning it'll really fall flat with UNEMPLOYED YOUTH, and everybody else.

Let's hear it for the fish that follow the blue ~ they shall triumph in the fullness of time.

They stayed awake in school!

Yes. I remember well the “unconventional” prophecy and have to believe that she’s one of the few that could actually pull this off. Her political acumen couldn’t be more underrated, and I certainly don’t hold that against her. The other side of this, unfortunately, is that she risks “relevance” if she DOESN’T run.

Why are you so eager to have someone run who 1) has repeatedly stated she’s not interested, 2) quit he last job she had midway through, and 3) is currently (unsuccessfully) hawking reality television shows?

Give it up. She’s not interested. She’s interested in making money (and i’m not going to condemn her for that; there’s nothing wrong with making money).

I was a Cain supporter and now have lost my enthusiasm in this race. Am searching for a candidate to endorse and have yet to come to grips who that may be.

My #1 priority is someone that can beat Osama. The media with all its tools keep taking down anyone but Romney who I will not endorse unless he gets the nomination.

I suppose when our caucuses come around it will be Newt. God help us.

You Palinistas remind me of the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the greatest comedic portrayal of a person in denial ever:

Arthur: “Now stand aside, worthy adversary!”

Black Knight: “’Tis but a scratch!”

Arthur: “A scratch! Your arm’s off!”

Black Knight: “No it isn’t.”

Arthur: “Well, what’s that, then?” (pointing at ground)

Black Knight: “I’ve had worse!”

Arthur: “You liar!”

Black Knight: “Come on, you pansy!”

I wish Sarah Palin success and happiness in anything she choses to do in life. I see her as a great lady and I believe a Palin presidency would have been historic.

However, it’s now too late for her. She had her chance and she made her choice. The country has moved on.

Our country will have a President Newt Gingrich..... with our help, it’s going to happen.

GO NEWT GO.......

We must draft, nominate and elect Sarah Palin president in the most crushing tidal wave of enthusiastic good judgment ever seen in the history of this nation. With that one bold move we will accomplish the dual goals of seeing America led by the greatest natural born leader in our generation, even as we witness the final implosion and last agonized shrieks of our endlessly lying extreme left loonies. Their entire movement, from the fabricated attacks on Bush beginning with ‘Blood For Oil’ to the crammed-down-our-gullets lies of Obamacare and the Shovel Ready Stimulus, have been nothing but one vile deceit heaped upon another. Such an absolute inability to deal in the truth or to face the facts of our situation and its solutions only proves that there is simply no place at the grown-ups’ table for these diseased sputa. Good riddance to rubes and bad rubbish. Time to usher in the American Renaissance, carried in on the invigoratingly freshening breeze of President Sarah Palin.

There is an inverse variant to Palin Derangement Syndrome by which some folks simply cannot accept that the woman has absolutely no interest in running for office in a race which she would likely lose by a greater margin than McCain did, largely owning to the fact that many people have irreversibly made up their minds about her, and not in a good way.

I have to say, Sarah Palin is head and shoulders above anything that is now offered.
But at this point, I am resigned to watch another defeat drawn from the jaws of victory by the Republican party.

In all due respect to you, I think SP said she was prayerfully considering the run. If that's true than God has led her to decide not to make a go of it. So for her to change her mind would automatically go against the council of God, would it not?

Maybe we should, as many urge, let it go.

We most certainly do not have Great Candidates, we do have better than the other guy, which is how we have slowly drifted to the progressive leftist position over the last hundred years.

It took less than six months for the corrupt leadership in the house to compromise the TEA party freshmen. We have got to this point by denying how we came to be here in the first place.

AOBA will get us a little less Marxism, but the beat will go on.

If Iowan go caucus for her, that would certainly shake up the race and give her something to consider. I don’t know if they will, but that would certainly be what I would do before I switched to Ron Paul.

There is NO chance Palin will run. As for the candidates and slate..imo..we have one excellent man running and that is Newt Gingrich. I have no doubt that he would cream Obama. I do have doubts he will be our nominee because of the msm, faux news, establishment republicans that want Romney or else. Romney has been chosen for us and how dare Newt do so well in the polls.

Can't know that without a crystal ball. 2008 they went with McCain (the maverick who could pull Independents) and we all know how that ended.

Sorry to burst your bubble.
Too many filing deadlines have passed.
She said “No”.
Someone other than an establishment candidate being picked at a brokered convention is a fantasy.

Sorry, but what is in front of you are what you have to choose from.

Now if that doesn't speak just like the liberal media - nothing does. Claiming what 'many' believe - LOL! Propaganda is telling the sheep what they WANT them to believe. It's always best to speak for yourself for credibility reasons.

Why wait? Write her in.

And to the folks complaining about some of us still supporting her: If the other candidates were really that much better, she would no longer be an issue. They’re not, and she is. Stop trying to fix what’s not broken, and start trying to fix what is.
