Gallup Poll & WSJ: Governor Sarah Palin Is Tipping Scales
Governor Palin 4 President ^

Posted on 07/25/2010 7:15:38 PM PDT by MaxCUA

Through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has burst back into the political spotlight this month, while her family life has once again become part of the broader American conversation.

But it is Ms. Palin's groundwork on behalf of candidates across the country, along with her continued fund-raising abilities, that has Republican leaders and political strategists wondering whether she is gearing up for a presidential bid in 2012.

Ms. Palin's intentions remain unclear, and unstated. She declined to comment through her political-action committee.

But her influence is undeniable: On Sunday, SarahPAC disclosed contributions of at least $87,500 to Republican candidates she has endorsed, and a tantalizing $210,000 she has spent on consultants of her own.

Governor Palin is doing the same thing Reagan did after the 76’ elections, building a coalition and spending her time talking to people and getting herself known to as many people as possible.

You will see her run for POTUS in 2012.

And mark my word, she will win!

Same thing Nixon did after virtually disappearing from the political landscape after losing to JFK

Nixon built political capital while out of office during the mid-60’s, endorsing many candidates who went on to win.

They then returned the favor when Nixon ran in 1968 and those endorsements helped Nixon win.

There have been a number of article recently on America’s new aristocracy and how similar Republican and Democrat members of that group are so similar.

Sarah is absolutely the antithesis of those people. A common sense, morally straight, practical and pragmatic conservative with frontier values that are unshakable.

This is the woman we need!

Either Sarah Palin/Michele Bachmann, or Sarah Palin/Herman Cain works for me, as well as if either changed places. There are many decent possibilities, but having a ticket with Sarah and, either, Michele Bachmann, or Herman Cain would work best, IMHO.

Except Sarah sure hasn't disappeared - she's been living in liberals' heads rent free since she reloaded (resigned to serve in a different direction)

That would be cruel and unusual punishment as millions of liberals' heads would explode in rage! By the way, which media nitwit recently suggested Palin/Gingrich? I read that somewhere but can't remember who it was that suggested that.

I thought there were rules on posts about Sarah P. Have we become so lax on FR that we forget our rules?

Sara-cudda continues slicing away her detractors, one “Journo-Lista” at a time.

Every liberal I know despises Sarah Palin and slams her supporters as Neanderthals.

Who wants her to fail? Who mocks her? Who paints her as a halfwit?

Anyone?

Herman who?

Herman Cain. Sucessful business type with Burger King and Godfather's Pizza, now a radio talk show host.

He is relatively new to me, but he gets my juices going. (I'm treating your question seriously.)

“Herman Cain.”

I saw this guy on TV and he was an awesome speaker. I don’t know what his qualifications are. If he is qualified, he would make a great candidate.

I reckon he’s as qualified as the Chicago Pol in office right now, and for darn sure, he’s a better executive.

Cain is good, but until it’s proven that he can win a state-wide race (Governor, Senate), I don’t think he’s a good candidate for such high office.

You haven’t spoken to pissant as well as some others here on FR who don’t like Sarah that much. Sarah does have her critics, even here on FR.

The person who could most likely defeat Sarah Palin’s run for ‘12 POTUS is Sarah Palin, herself. As one possible example, if a majority of non-leftists end up not liking most of Sarah’s endorsement picks, then the majority of non-leftists could eventually turn against Sarah. I would be surprised, if this actually happened, but it’s still possible.

LOL. My 18 year old granddaughter could probably do a better job than the current POTUS, but I would like to see the bar raised back to a more competent level than it is now.
