This bombshell from Glenn Beck is about three minutes into the segment on Thursday. Beck said leaving the governors mansion in Alaska was a smart move.
Beck: Smart move. And I think shes also positioning herself for a third party. By the time this election runs around for the president, Im sorry, but unless the Republicans and the Democrats wake up, a third party will win.
We shall see how that works out. Many people are angry at Republicans right now. The message sent to Dede Scozzafava is being noticed in Washington. Believe me. But 3 years is a long time in politics. We shall see.
It is time to begin thinking more about the person being considered for public office than for the party.
Beck on Palin
Also of note:
Why are leftist women jealous of Palin
I love Sarah, but hope like HELL she doesn’t run UNLESS we win back Congress....as a 3rd Party Candidate I mean...
Just speculation. Sara won in Alaska going against the establishment but staying a Republican. I think she has the same plan right now unless something drastic happens.
Is it official? Does it have any politicians in it that are holding office after being elected from within this "third party?
I don't know of it.
Huge mistake if she does. No 3rd party candidate in the history of the republic has ever won. Good chance that Obama would get a second term too.
Beck is presuming we have a two party system. This is ignores the fact the OP(formerly the GOP) has moved incrementally towards socialism with its big tent mentality in order to expand the voter base. The result are choices between socialist Obama against socialist light McCain and socialist Owens against socialist Scozzofava. This illustrates the two parties have become one big socialist Republicrat party. A party based on strong Conservative principles will be the second party.
Yes, why should a strong conservative have to leave the Republican party and become a 3rd party - RNC needs to wake up and smell the coffee. We’re SICK and TIRED of candidates like the liberal woman who dropped out in NY-23...We start now, today, to take back the Republican party, NOT give up and start a new one - that’s just giving the election to DEMOCRATS!
Maybe the Lieberman Party? Heh, heh, heh ;-)
I’m really not interested in a third party right now. I don’t think that they could get the structure in place in time. And don’t call it the Tea Party Party.
BAD move-it would just mean four more years of Zero. Better to clean all the RINO’s out in 2010 and replace them with Reagan-style conservatives-Palin can then run as a real Republican!
Something will happen.
We the People.
You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the grace of
the Eternal God, I will rout you out”
We the people
have had enough.
We Surround Them.
WE will flip the house.
Sarah, GO THIRD PARTY, WE’RE WITH YOU, WE KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW, THE REPUBLICANS ARE DEM-LITE, THEY ARE COWARDS, TAKING US TO THE SAME PLACE, IT’S TIME FOR REVOLUTION IN THE FORM OF A 3RD PARTY, AND YES, I’M YELLING ...
I like Sarah Palin, but I’d rather have her initiate a ‘Come to Jesus’ moment with the Republican Party than run as a third party.
AMEN to that, Tanniker Smith.
NO THIRD PARTY MOVEMENT!!
....ever since Teddy Rooseveldt 3rd parties lose and make others lose....Ross Perot gave us Clinton.
The GOP base is conservative, and at the national level, it has a good number of conservatives. What needs to happen is for a RINO hunt to happen, the way Dede was outed as a Dem. The best way to do that is in primaries where the conservative wins, and then wins the election. That will bring waivering conservatives, the Mike Pence types, in line. Get rid of 20 Rinos in Congress next election, nominate a conservative in 2012, and take back the party. Don't equate it with the Dems, prevent it from becoming like the Dems.
What Beck needs to analyze is the impact of a winner take all system in national races on the process of elections. That system guarantees a 2 party race. It is that simple. We need to do our work to make sure that one of the parties is conservative, not remake American politics. If we try the latter, we will ensure the election of marxists.
It’s time we stop eating the tapioca dished out by the power behind both parties and strike up a conservative band with many tubas and trombones. I’ll march in that parade if Sarah Palin is the drum majorette any day.
We’ve got to TAKE BACK THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, not circumvent it. It’s ours. Let the DemLites creat their own party. Palin needs to run as a Republican or not at all.
If Sarah runs as a third party, I withdraw ALL support from her and will never send her another dime!
