The same CO poll in March had Myth Romney leading Palin by 19 points - big change in 2 months as more people are seeing Palin out front on issues and leading the conservative charge. America needs a strong, vocal conservative leader who is unafraid to stand up and state the truth.
At this moment, I'm backing Palin. see my tagline....
Aren’t those ‘the babes’ as Rush calls them. Nothing ‘hmmmm’ about that. They ‘can’ be gay and espouse conservative beliefs.
“His wife is more annoying than Michele Obama.”
Bite your tongue!
Should definitely be an interesting primary if she runs!
Couldn’t be more wrong.
You'd better come-up with a back-up plan real quick.
Banking the idea that “Jim Demint hasn't sworn-off running SO HELP HIM GOD = he's running!” is going to lead to a lot of heartbreak, and a lot of last-minute scrambling to find another Romney backer to oppose Palin (or maybe just Romney himself).
DeMint isn't running, no matter how much you really, really want him to.
She is intelligent, but not very educated or ready in the foreign policy area and she really avoids presenting serious, articulate policy points.
I really think leaving the governor position to do TV and make money was not “presidential”...and the issue is not whether she has conservative principles...its Can she win? I really don’t think she can get enough independents and some dems to make it.
I'm starting a pool, now, Max:
Who do the DeMint folks jump to when he doesn't run:
3.) Some local Congressman
4.) Libertarian Party
8.) Unelected military figure.
We should keep a list for posterity's sake! LOL
Rubio explained himself pretty well on the AZ issue. He said initially he thought the bill would have allowed police to stop people on sight and check them for citizenship. When he found out more about the details he supported it. (If you are in Arizona and there is a problem with a lot of illegals, they aren't going to look like they came from the Congo, Sweden or Japan.)
“Myth” Romney - like that. The GOP establishment coalesced behind him (maybe “congealed” is a better word) early on like they did with McCain.
I have my sources. I was the one saying he was going to run even when he was poo-pooing the idea months ago.
Notice how he is no longer ruling it out.
If Obama is unpopular in 2012.. She almost wins by default.
Too many people underestimate her strength and she is awesome on the campaign trail.
You mean the DeMint who endorsed Lindsey Grahamesty and Mittens? Don’t get me wrong, I love DeMint, but he’s had some questionable endorsements as well. And as much as I like his positions, he’s certainly not Mr. Personality. In this media-driven world that’s going to be a handicap.
Newt’s done-—he’ll never win a primary. I discussed this with my mom and her Republican women’s club members. Every one of them remember Newt dumping his ex-wife while she was hospitalized and being treated for cancer-—and for a new and younger woman. None of them can tolerate to even look at him. He would have a very difficult time with older voters who recall the incident well. And don’t think it won’t be brought up over and over again by Romney et al.
“Well I guess Ive learned not to rule out anything in life but right now its the last thing I want to do.” —Jim DeMint
Yes, clearly by saying it's the LAST THING HE WANTS TO DO, and publicly contemplating who he's going to endorse in 2012, he's practically forming an exploratory committee.
The man has made his sentiments clear, he isn't running - certainly not in 2012.
Wanna put a wager on that?
But my wager will be much higher than you’ll want to place.
We ain’t playing poker here, so you can cut the poker face.
How about something reasonable say, $250. Or we could make it as a donation to the other guy’s candidate on behalf of the winner.
Obama is STILL popular and there is about 49% of the citiznes who BENEFIT from his no tax, entitled society.
RE: “You mean the DeMint who endorsed Lindsey Grahamesty and Mittens?”
Yeah, that’s the guy — you looking for perfection? It’s not out there. Does not exist. Palin endorsed Fiorina - yuck — Cheney is endorsing Whitman, also here in CA — not a good thing.
See what I mean? No perfection out there — take what you can get. I like DeMint - but the candidate will probably be Romney.
“I hope and pray that we can have someone who is actually competent and intelligent like”
Thank you Keith Olbermann.
Not quite, but this is sadly in the ballpark for a guy that used his church influence to get a deferment while his father was campaigning to become the anti-war Commander in Chief during the Vietnam war. I would love to ask some questions related to the 2007 version.
Desire to serve in Vietnam:
"I was not planning on signing up for the military. It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam..." Boston Herald, 5/2/94
"I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam." Boston Globe, 6/24/07
