2012: Demint or Palin?
Vanity ^ | 4/20/2010 | FTJM

Posted on 04/20/2010 1:04:53 PM PDT by FTJM

Given the obsession with the 2012 Presidential race and Palin's possible candidacy, who would you choose between Demint and Palin to be the GOP nominee for President at this point? If you'd like to see a ticket of both, specify which one you prefer for President and which one you prefer for Vice President.

Palin. Don't trust anybody that's been in D.C. for over say 1 week.

Demint is so wishy-washy when compared to Palin.

He can’t even hold his own in a TV interview.

Demint. I love SP politically, but she has sent a couple of mixed signals particularly with her endorsement of McCain for his Senate re-election. Demint has been straight and true so far. I could go big for a Demint/Palin ticket.

Paul Ryan and Greg Abbott in 2012. That covers the political, ideological and geographical requirements to win.

Plus, neither one of them have been in DC for 15+ years, which should be a huge positive in 2012.

That ticket is a winner.

That is, if there are elections in 2012.

I like that one.

Chris Cristie/Michelle Bachmann 2012

Cristie may be not socially conservative enough but he is a tough guy and he is smart.

I’d rather see Palin chair and revamp the RNC. The cash would flood like a tsunami.

Palin, hands down.

DeMint comes across like a used car salesman, and quite frankly, no white southern male politician will stand a chance against Obama in 2012.

Simple fact of life.

Demint wants to give airline management access to the CVR, something expressly forbidden in the FARs. As far as I know Demint is NOT a commercial pilot. Thus he is clueless as to why this is a very bad idea. For his sticking his nose in something he doesn’t understand, I am branding him just another incumbent that needs to go..

Awaiting the flames..

Palin for RNC Chairwoman!

This. That's exactly where she needs to be to shake up the establishment. Some of you are delusional if you think that she has a remote chance in 2012. Hell, she doesn't even occupy any political office currently. Speeches and book tours a leader does not make.

DeMint has said he doesn’t want to be President, so Palin wins by default.

DeMint/Palin Palin/DeMint
Either way would work...also like Pence/Bachmann/Cantor/Ryan/Hunter and others to a lesser degree. 2010 may be the point of no return though...lets stay focused!!

Both are great conservatives but I would take DeMint because unfortunately Palin has high negatives among those that are influenced by the msm.

McCain/Schwarzenegger for 2012!

.

(only kidding)

I do like Bachmann/Ryan or Ryan/Bachmann, but I would vote for almost any non-Marxists.

Pissant, I've refrained from attacking you on these posts because of old times with Hunter, but if you want to go down this bitter road with me, despite the numerous times I have defended you, then all bets are off.
