Posted on 12/28/2010 4:22:09 PM PST by onyx
As Sarah Palin continues to make political headlines, the mania surrounding her future and potential GOP presidential primary candidacy is heating up. Some think she'll start a conservative think tank, but many hope she runs for the highest office in the land.
So would she make a good president or not? To answer this, we quizzed our large group of political insiders on whether she would make a good or bad president. Following are the 10 reasons Sarah Palin would make a good president.
(Excerpt) Read more at usnews.com ...
How about RNC chair?
Then Secretary of Energy?
as of now
So far, she's been assaulted by the State Run Media for 2 years running, and will endure two more years of intensified crap from them and others (even here on FR).
PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome) runs rampant.
1. 26.46% Yes
2. 73.54% No
We already have the best conservative think tank, Heritage.
Concho posted the link to me much earlier today on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska LIVE thread,” but I got here late. Hard to know how many votes or maybe the totals are shown. I’ll go vote to have a look.
Political insiders are what got us where we are today along with the LameStreamMedia jerks.
I notice that the score never changes on the poll.
PRESIDENT! It’s all or nothing. Those two jobs wouldn’t make an iota of difference.
That is the best photograph I have ever seen on the internet. It’s every bit as good as the pictures we get on our new Plasma HD Tv that Santa brought us!
As a foe of the liberal media, she might boost conservative bloggers and center-right media like Fox News to mainstream media levels.
Obviously, USN&WR doesn't check ratings!
Those sound great!
I like Sarah very much, and I think that she has much to add to the political discourse.
That said, I'm leaning toward Thune or Cantor or Ryan for prez and Bachmann or Rubio for veep.
(Yes, there are others worthy of consideration as well.)
I like Gingrich, but he's a certain loser.
The fear the RINOs and socialists are displaying is tangible. They see the next Reagan-esque president...and they are scared ******!
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
This excerpt will save the viewer a ba-zillion mouse clicks...:
1. Unbending Conservative
2. Military Hawk
3. Oil Drilling Advocate
4. Respect of Governors
5. Revive Saturday Night Live
6. Friend of the Working Class
7. Advocate for Disabled Children
8. First Woman President
9. Boost Conservative Media
10. Fashion Statement
Those are fine gentlemen....IF you want a RINO.
C'mon, get with the program and seek a true conservative. Sheesh, what a maroon!
Onyx these “Hits” on Palin are going to get more severe and plentiful. The agenda behind them doesn’t care one iotta if it makes us angry...or for that matter her angry. It is all about influencing the dumbdowned public to “believe” what they saw by repeating it over and over and over again...doing so because it does work on the dumbdowned public. That’s how Obama won, only they worked it in reverse, they built up a dastardly man who though it was revealed clearly who he was the public wanted a feel good candidate. Working against Palin in just the opposite way may very well work for the uninformed and who follow the crowd.
Yes we can certainly fight this and we do....I do at work and in every way I know how...but there is a “blindness” and deceptful wave in this country....are the people awake enough? Do they want to be wakened?
I say this because with all the facts out there people continue to “believe” what they are led to believe.
Her toenail clippings have more character in them than your average DC politician.
Of course she’d make a good president on that basis alone.
She takes a stand for what she believes in and doesn’t back down or pander to those who oppose her.
It’s about time we had a president in office with some er.... backbone. Yup that’s it. Backbone.....
I am going to post the photos I like and substitute others....LOL.

Governor Sarah Palins Accomplishments that garnered her a whopping 92% approval rating:
Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship
*Governor Palins cornerstone accomplishment is AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palins governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and helps put us on the path to energy independence.
*Governor Palins administration opened up drilling for oil and natural gas at Pt. Thompson for the first time in decades.
*Governor Palin created the Alaskas Petroleum Integrity Office to oversee all aspects of energy development and to make sure oilfield equipment was safe to operate and a Climate Change Subcabinet to comprehensively and honestly evaluate climate change.
*Governor Palin reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration, requesting only earmarks that would benefit the country as a whole.
* Governor Palin reduced spending in her budget for Fiscal Year 2010 by more than one billion dollars from the previous governors Fiscal Year 2007 budget, a 9.5% real reduction in spending. Her FY2010 budget was $10.57 billion compared to Governor Murkowskis FY2007 budget of nearly $11.7 billion. At the same time, she fulfilled her campaign promise to forward fund education, allowing districts greater flexibility and predictability in their planning.
*Governor Palin opposed much of the “stimulus”, wanting only to accept 55% of the money allocated to Alaska, specifically only dollars dedicated to infrastructure [projects. Although the Alaskan legislature ultimately overturned her veto, she stood firm on her commitment to help Alaska to become more self-sufficient while not adding to not add to the skyrocketing national debt.
* Governor Palin invested $5 billion in state savings.
Walking the Walk on Fiscal Responsibility
*Governor Palin sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor. She state it was an unnecessary financial burden on the state and was unable to land on many of the states landing strips.
* To cut costs that would be incurred by continuing to use a personal driver like previous governors, the governor drove herself from Wasilla to her office in Anchorage. She also dismissed the governors personal chef stationed in Juneau, Alaskas capital.
* Governor Palin accepted less state per diem for herself and her family than her predecessors even though she had a larger family.
10th Amendment Advocacy/Promotion of State Constitution
*Showing that she is a strong supporter of the 10th amendment, Governor Palin advocated for the sovereignty of the state of Alaska.
*Governor Palins administration sued the federal government for placing the polar bear on the endangered species list, as this restriction affected energy development which would increase energy costs.

She exposed legal violations and conflicts of interest of Alaska Republican leaders, including the former state Attorney General and the State GOP Chairman (who was also an Oil & Gas Commissioner), who was doing work for the party on public time and supplying a lobbyist with a sensitive e-mail. Several went to jail.

Sarah Palin was Commander of the Alaska National Guard. Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the first line of defense unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. Its on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units in the United States. As governor of Alaska, Palin was briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism daily.
Governor Palin was the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security’s counterterrorism plans.
1. Unbending Conservative.
Palin is a long-time, unbending Reagan conservative who has committed to cutting taxes, eliminating some regulations, and generally shrinking the government.
Looks like those numbers are hard set on the site and are not reflective of any actual tabulation.
I don’t think they are scared at all...they are doing what they do to win no matter the fallout from it. These people do not go down easily as this election proved...oh they go down alright but it does not stop their push and the agendas they are sold out to do...they just come in from another angle...as we are also seeing.
This battle for our country’s freedoms has just begun, (in the open), most of which has been going on behind the scene for many years. But they did not at all anticipate Sarah Palin.....which is the fly in their ointment. Nor that Glen Beck would be educating the dumpdowned public. They are scrambling for anything which will shut it all down and for now the media is their choice weapon....that we see.
Typical LibTURD LameStreamMedia tactic to rig the polls to get the result they want.
The mother of a soldier in Iraq, Palin is becoming a military hawk. She has repeatedly threatened Iran with sharp language, and some think threats work. And don't forget that she can shoot an elk at 400 yards, so she can back up those threats.
“5. Revive Saturday Night Live”
Let’s let SNL wither on the vine, already. That schlock hasn’t been funny since the Peanut Farmer was being scared by rabbits.
In it’s place I would suggest: “5. She would cause liberals heads to explode”.
That, in itself would be plenty of reason to elect Governor Palin as President.
it did change 0.2%
I disagree... Pres puts her in the crosshairs again - like when she was gov of alaska.
But imagine her [not michael steele] articulating our values and fighting for us. Imagine her getting after the energy we have her at home...
But she would make a great dang prez...
3. Oil Drilling Advocate = "Drill, Baby, Drill"
“I only question one item and if it is: Has she gone through menopause? Some women become wildly insane when this takes place and i certainly do not want somebody having hot flashes with her finger on the button.”
I have the very same concerns about obama.
That’s one of my top 5-10 favorites. It’s too difficult to narrow the field to five!
Thank YOU, SunkerCiv!
“1. She is largely a rookie on the international stage who is not up on key issues or friendly with world leaders.”
And Obastard wasn’t? The SOB has committed one idiot mistake after another until he is either a laughing stock or an naive moron who can be easily misled.
“2. She has a questionable ethics record.”
Compared to Obastard who has NO RECORD AT all!
“3. Palin lacks big agenda.”
Undoing the damage that the socialist Rats have wrought on the country for the past 100 years is a pretty damned big agenda, I would say.
“4. Slim management experience.”
If Sarah’s “Slim management experience” would make her a bad president, then Obama has been a disaster.
“5. Shed be the butt of jokes.”
By leftist who hate her. But that is better than being the joke of the western world liek Obastard is.
“6. Family First: Maybe a bit to focused on her large family.”
Wait, wasn’t it LIBERALS who said that women could do it all? Now that a woman has a real chance to be president, suddenly doing it all is too much?
“7. There are serious concerns that she lacks a lot of experience on domestic policy like healthcare, immigration reform, and financial issues that are consuming most of Washingtons time and energy. “
I hate leftists. Obastard had ZERO experience but he was just soooo smart that it didn’t matter. From the beginning all Obastard has done is have other people write the bills and make speeches and go on vacation.
“8. A bit too centered on conservative social issues like abortion, faith, and the flag. “
Yes, being concerned with the issues that are destroying the country and bankrupting it morally is BAAAAAD.
“9. Shed destroy the mainstream media by using her own blogs and conservative press to push her issues.”
Like that is a BAD thing?
“10. She is not a very dynamic speaker.”
Obastard can’t give a speech to save his life. The creep reads off a teleprompter to 6 YEAR OLDS!
A hugh and series issue, to be sure.
Would Sarah Palin Make a Good President?
1. 26.59% Yes
2. 73.41% No
Sounds like a great way to marginalize her, I think Sarah will do just fine as President. And she has stated that she’s not running for RNC chair.
Obama always seems wildly insane to me. He giggles like a girl, pouts like a spoiled child when not getting his way, and can't speak coherently on numerous occasions. I'd rather put a drunk like Teddy Kennedy on the button, than Obama.
In comparison, anyone other than Obama, as president would make a good president. Sarah Palin as president would make an outstanding president.
Who’s marginalizing [what is that? some kind of sodium free butter?]
I’m saying she would be an awesome RNC chair. Is that bad?
