If Sarah is flirting, I was seduced a long time ago! For everyone who doesn't want Romney, this is huge!
It's only in the modern era that Presidential nominations have been locked up before most American voters even tuned in. So this year, for the nation, the Republican Primary is kind of a return to older times, when all Americans counted, not just the few power brokers. The race has been a very rich blue blood from New England ( where he would not carry one state in the general election ) and a group of three, Newt, Rick and Ron scrambling for the 60 plus percent of Republicans who won't be bought!
And now, a new card is thrown into the game, Sarah Palin coming off the bench to be the choice at a divided GOP Convention! And with just a hint, she will stir the pot and drive the media nuts! Hurrah for Sarah.
In one of my most recent columns I told you about a conversation I had with a friend who had attended CPAC. He told me that Sarah had been the closing speaker, and the best. And he said, she had indicated she was not out of the game, and he even predicted she would be the horse to mount for the General election race.
That's the only verb that describes this possiblity. Did the Governor from Alaska out fox the pundits, the consultants, and the power elite in the GOP to dance right around all the murderous press that she would have had to endure?
Looks like this lady is not someone to play with.
I have been a Palin supporter from the beginning. For me, she was the choice by lengths. None of the rest of the candidates have her charisma, her grit, her unique character. For America, in this time of crisis and cross roads, there is only one person who can truly change the course of the ship of state! And that's Sarah.
So is this for real?
We can't know. She did not hint towards jumping in now. She hinted that she could be the one to pick in a brokered convention.
But this does provide a ray of hope. It provides one more reason NOT to vote for Romney. But it also provides a reason to go to the polls and vote for anybody other than Romney. It does provide a real reason to be involved. For the grass roots, make your choice from Newt, Rick or Ron but do it and be there on Primary Day. Don't let Romney buy you, or win because of apathy.
America does not have one flat tire. We have four flat tires, a blown engine, no battery, and a leaky gas tank where fuel is running ...and may ignite if it hits something electric or hot.
We need someone with a renewed vision of the old America. Yes, the old America. The one that put a man on the moon. The one that on Decemeber 25, 1991 won the half century Cold War liberating 500 million souls in 13 nations! We need the old America that when I was born was unquestionably the wealthiest, most powerful, most successful nation in the entire world. And we need someone who knows why all that happened.
Sarah proved in Alaska she could be an executive. She went against corruption in her own party...and beat the oil companies at the same time! In her third year as governor her approval ratings in Alaska were over eighty percent!!!! 80 percent!
So... we wait. But now, on the horizon, we see a light. So GOP grass roots, get to the polls, and pick anyone but Mitt!!!
She is the only Republican for whom I would vote enthusiastically. I’m willing to vote for either Santorum or Gingrich, but I see both as flawed and unlikely to beat Obama. Sarah could do it.
One can only hope!
Sarah could run in 2016, UNLESS the Pubbie that beats Obama does a good job. If that Pubbie is a RINO, and Obama is safely out of the way, then she should challenge the RINO as she did in Alaska.
Now that would be...well-played!
I love her zeal, and would celebrate her as president - but, we Palin lovers are but a tiny piece of this nations citizenship.
No, not likely.
You just cannot decide at a moment’s notice decide to run for president, especially after publicly denying she would. If she decided tomorrow to do it, she would not find enough support to accomplish this.
She is either better off to stay at Fox news and give the occasional statement of conservatives ideals or run for the House or Senate.
That has always been my position about her.
I swear I think I saw her on almost every Fox show today. I haven’t been watching tonight. But saw her on Fox & Friends this a.m., then the 8:00-10:00 show name??, then again on Five @ Five. I missed a couple of others but she has been making the rounds. Really enjoyed her segment early this a.m. and it was about 7 or 8 minutes long and lots of detail on policy.
Sarah is America’s true Constitutional conservative.
I see images of cats with long tails in rooms full of rockers.
Amazing she had no time for CPAC the last four years that they’ve asked her and now she does....she’s trying to play kingmaker.
There was a movie out a few years ago with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves called the the Devil’s Advocate where Al Pacino who plays the devil says at the end “Vanity my favorite sin of all.” That’s Sarah she can’t live without the spotlight.
That's our Sarah!
I love Sarah, but she she said she would not run and I don’t see where she could explain her way out. Maybe she will run with newt or santorum. I pray she does not run with romney. I would hate not voting for her, because I won’t vote for romney.
Go back and look at the exact words she used. I suspect you'll find that you're recalling what you believed her to have said, not what she actually said.
100% correct, the way I see it.
I've been a Palinite almost from the beginning. While I accept and respect her previous decision to (temporarily?) bow out, a reversal would be huge, to say the least.
