The media crucified Gingrich.
They crucified him twice, once when he was speaker,
then again during the nomination process, he still
ran.

Mrs.Palin and her entire family were dragged over
the coals to the point it was affecting her job
as governer, she chose to step down to allow
the state to continue. She will still run...
and with our help WIN!

I certainly don’t count her out, she owes them for
what they did to her as they say, success is the
best revenge.

Palin UNCHAINED !!!

If you have noticed the few idiots who have messed with her since she acquired serious coin have met with swift and serious resistance from high dollar attorneys.

I agree, I was very disappointed in Sarah when she stepped down as Gov of Alaska.

Please don’t give me the reasons I have heard them over and over and I am still disappointed in her that she could not figure out a way. As much as her supporters love her I don’t remember hearing her asking for help fighting her attackers.

I am sorry she didn’t ask because I would have donated money to help keep her viable.

Hm. She had a legal defense fund that was challenged by the same Dems who tried to bankrupt her and shut down by a judge because it had the word "official" in it.

Pretty much all her real supporters know this. Guess it just slipped your mind.

“Political operatives descended on Alaska last August, digging for dirt. The ethics law I championed became their weapon of choice. Over the past nine months I’ve been accused of all sorts of frivolous ethics violations - such as holding a fish in a photograph, wearing a jacket with a logo on it, and answering reporters’ questions” S.Palin

If you can not defend your self from the frivolous ethics violations and reporters questions then you really do not belong in the big chair.

She did. She set up a defense fund, written by the sharpest, most expert DC lawyers. I donated to it. But still, the same outlandish operatives bankrupting her got a judge to quash it. It was absolutely insane. The frivilous lawsuits were coming at a pace of almost two a week by the end, and had Palin stayed in office, she and her family would have been up to $2-million in debt. All the while, the press was headlining each and every lawsuit, deliberately conveying the idea that she was the most corrupt politician living.

All the while, just like when her church was torched, and her kids were being dragged through the tabloid mud, and these operatives were bankrupting her, the GOP leadership didn’t lift a finger to help her. Heck, I recall the RNC even sent her a bill, charging her for her own ‘vetting!’

Now I’ve only been calling Alaska home for twenty some years, but Palin was the best, most ethical, open, responsible, and fairest Governor to all Alaskans regardless of party that I have experienced up here. I voted for Parnell, but he ain’t no Palin; I really wish she’d stayed on as Governor and accomplished even more for Alaska. I don’t blame her for looking higher, but I also know how good she really was and how much she is really needed, more today than ever.

I doubt it. Unless she teams up with Beck, nobody will be seeing Palin.

Without media attention, she is not going to have any voice.

she quit as Gov. due to the “press”.

eyes rolling...pffftttt!!! Someone hasn’t been missing the staff meetings it seems.

Hint: Read her first book or watch the “Undefeated” and you’ll know why she resigned her office.

Clue: It was costing her nearly $600k with no signs of letting up, then you would be sniping about something else.

Saxby Chambliss is a no-go for 2014 (he probably saw the writing on the wall...he was gonna get seriously primaried). Wouldn’t it be sweet if Allen West moved to GA and Palin gave him an endorsement.

Palin has the gift of being able to see one to two years down the pike.

She left FNC because she knows that it's lost its cachet with conservatives and is going Left.

She knows that Obama's policies are going to bite and people will be casting about for alternative leadership in about six months.

She knows that the people look at the Establishment GOP and see a rag tag bunch of war criminals, RINO's, and opportunists whose sole interest is ticket punching and careerism.

And this is what Sarah Palin knows about the American People:

They will be looking for someone else.

That someone else will not be Chris Christie.

Best,

Chris

Governor Palin is the most influential republican in America, the leader of the conservative movement, and the most influential endorsement in history, and doing all that while being opposed by the democrat party, the Romney/Rockefeller wing of the GOP, and the media.

I would say that she is doing something right, she has political skills and insights that are beyond measure.

While the establishment and rinos were going down in flames with Mitt Romney and the resulting disaster of the 2012 presidential race, Palin gave us our only Senate seat pick up, in Nebraska, and gave us Senator Ted Cruz.

Two words: Gifford’s shooting.

Once the MSM/blogosphere tagged her as a “murderer” conspirator, the RNC and crew ran for the tall grass. Only talk radio, her grass-roots supporters, and Alan Dershowitz (a big lib lawyer from NYC) came to help.

There was nothing to “figure a way out”. It was an inside hit job by the MSM, DNC and RNC who didn’t want the chance of her getting a foothold in the American Lexicon for bigger and better things. Did you happen to notice the snub at the 2012 convention? Ever notice the contempt the RNC brandy sniffers have for her?

This is not your father’s GOP Ditter. There’s no room for a conservative at the top anymore.

Yes Kolath, or Allan West helps her start the new Party :-).

I'd love to see him run in Georgia, I am sure Cain and Boortz would go to the walls to put him over the top.

Rockerfeller is leaving as is my Putz Levin.

The old Bulls in the Senate have over-played their hand, I think their is a good chance for conservatives to take back the Senate, not the E-GOP, they suck on Ice. It will have to be us @ the Tea Party level working our asses off for victories...

I saw a phenomenon here in Michigan in 10' as to how and why the legislature and supreme court got so darned conservative. But I do not dare speak it here as to how and why it was done, no one sees it I do... I need someone like Ran Paul for 5 or 10 minutes to explain what I saw and how they need to implement it.

Can't speak it here, ya never know when the DU dweebs are lurking. :-)

source close to Palin told Real Clear Politics that it was the governor’s decision not to renew their contract.

The comments at that site seem to miss that she declined and reply instead that Fox got rid of her. Lots of Palin hatred there. Interesting how their hatred makes me like her. Weird.

Hers will be an important voice in the wilderness that is "flyover country" should she choose to pick some fights or join some and I'm sure she will. No wonder they hate.

“I may be one of the few, I agree with Palin on lots but when she quit as Gov. due to the “press” she quite being a viable candidate to me. She can be a leader in many ways but not a candidate. You may all now yell and flame me but, if you cant stand the attack press of ALASKA I have doubts about how you will fair in DC. (maybe as Senator as the one from there just went stupider)”

This old song is enough to put you to sleep. This woman endured more false and completely fabricated crap from everyone during and after the 2008 election than anyone I can think of. She can handle the press, but being bankrupted by corrupt commies masquerading as democrats by bogus lawsuits when you were pulling in somewhere around $110,000 a year is why she gave up her post. Not only her but the state she was representing as governor was being held responsible for the bill. She didn’t fold because of the press or criticism from all sides including her own turncoat party. Nah.

The RNC went to war against Governor Palin on August 29, 2008, if not before, when she was taking on the corrupt GOP in Alaska.

I think so, too. There’s plenty of opportunity for an independent voice..and plenty of forums for her. She’s already made plenty of appearances at perhaps some lesser known but well-deserving causes. I can see her at CPAC, perhaps Heritage and others. Or going completely independent like Allen West and Herman Cain.

I liked seeing her on Fox, mostly with Greta, Megyn Kelly and Hannity...but you could tell that on several occasions, she seemed somewhat uncomfortable..stifled. I think she’s done the right thing. Again.

I always saw Palin as the conservative populist conduit to re-capturing the old Reagan Democrat coalition, someone who tapped into that for the GOP, for the first time in decades. A political dynamo, who still had people at bookstores waiting out in line for hours during the night and in freezing temperatures, two years after the election. But, the GOP leadership opted to join with the scum in the media to trash both her and the tea-party, clearing the path for the Rove/Romney/Priebus crowd and the corrupt beltway elites. I predict that decision will come to haunt the GOP more than it will ever realize.

Palin is out because LIBERAL Colin Bowell-movemenbt called her a racist. Fox has offered Colin Bowell-movement a job.
Faux News is the RINO channel. Sarah Palin should never agree to any type of interview again on that network. They are disgusting.

Who you think knows more about guns, Sarah Palin or Mr. Affirmative Action Colin Bowell-movement? I guarantee you this old liberal ain’t fired a weapon since qualifying with an M-16 40 years ago. He sat on his fat ass when he came back from Nam, letting republicans give him every promotion in the world, this the sorry SOB stabbed them in the back. No use at all for the American face of affirmative action gone wrong.

Well stated. Sarah is a brilliant woman. Sarah leaving Faux news is a good sign. Having read her books and studied her over the years, I can envision her entry back into politics.

As the 2014 elections approach, if Sarah becomes very involved by campaigning in person for a good number of Conservatives, then you can take it to the bank that Sarah will be testing the waters to see how the electorate responds.

Sarah will be helping elect Conservatives, but also testing her viability.

If she is strongly received, then no doubt Sarah will make a move to run for President.

She will out flank the GOP-e by gathering the support of Conservative office holders currently in office and those elected in 2014. The GOP-e will be aware of her intentions long after she already will have built unstoppable momentum.

She will have a tough fight on her hands, but I know she will truly relish taking on the GOP-e.

Again the key to her strategy will be the necessity of a firestorm of grassroot support early on.

Then again, she may become less visible in the public eye, concluding that the Republic is too far gone to stop the Socialist transformation.

Sarah Palin is the only human being I know of who could stand in front of a camera with her hand on her hip, utter ONE word, ANY word, and the entire media would wrap a story around it that would reverb for days with rampant speculation about what she actually meant.

Watching Hannity's DC special about the Ruling Class. Don't usually watch FoxNews, but this is a good expose on how our elected representatives produce nothing but record debts and yet have the largest Maserati dealership and richest counties in the country...on our tax $$.

“Palin has been out of the loop a long time now.” That is a good thing, as it is easier to effect change when not in someone’s gun sights, figuratively speaking.”

You know the old saying “any publicity is good publicity”. She is disliked by the media who love to hate her, and so polarizing a political figure, all she would have to do is start calling Obama’s actions treason and continue hammering away at it and she would be the center attraction in the media in a matter of days all over again. Not to mention giving patriotic Republic loving citizens a voice of sanity in the cesspool of RINO’S that surrounds us.

“Agreed. It is apparent to me that she has not invested her time in becoming more informed. I wish her and her family well. She is great as a cheerleader, and I mean that positively, but she does not have gravitas. The media crucified Gingrich. I don’t see her overcoming them in a campaign.”

The word “gravitas” gave you away. You over educated professors need to do a better job at guarding your speech when speaking to those of us who only possess common sense. Common sense helps one to understand and appreciate Palin as a leader whether it be cheerleader or POTUS.

If she is going all in (and won’t tease or quit) to run for the GOP third party in 2016, that would be great.

Otherwise, she and her hopeful followers will just suck all the air out of the process, demoralize and weaken conservatives.

After seeing the gross rot she has been subjected to via both parties and the whole political establishment, I would not blame her if she did not run for office again. I just hope she does not lead people on again.
