yes why would anyone pick the articulate person with a masters degree over someone with a journalism major who likes to wink a lot? It’s something I will never understand.
Not exactly sure why you are mocking that statement.
Cain is clearly as intelligent, strategically, as Palin.
ROFL I was going to respond to that post, but then figured it must have been post #13. :D
>>who likes to wink a lot
Because her winks are sooooooo dreamy and if I vote for her, then maybe she’ll talk to me in the hall at school one day. And then we’ll sit at the same table in the cafeteria. And then I’ll ask her to the prom....
Its a hard call the word “Electable”. I tend to read all these comments and basically “assume” that most conservatives will vote for the anyone but Obama. So she would probably get most of the votes of people who don’t squander their responsibilities and just stay home. - Now the independents (I mean the true independents - not those democrats who always say they haven’t made up their mind) will have a clear choice - Palin or Obama. Most at my work are closet democrats but talking to them they are just about willing to vote for anyone but Obama.
Funny thing about the independents at my work - they never vote anything but democrat. They seem like normal people but when you talk to them one on one they say “I’m an independent.” I ask when is the last time you didn’t vote democrat and they say never have found someone other than the democrat they liked. I tell them they are democrats.....
You are too focused on the media. Sarah has been side stepping them for a very long time, in case you haven’t noticed. I don’t care what the media says - they are in the tank for obama anyway, so, what makes you think they would give any Rep. a fair shake? It isn’t going to happen, and it won’t happen with Cain either. They’ll play up his bout with cancer.
It sounds like you are the one who can’t get over the reasons Sarah stepped down. Never judge a person until you walk a mile in their shoes.
This article is *very illuminating* - thanks for posting.
The sheer amount of money and work needed to be in early and not fade is something I simply hadn’t considered: also I hadn’t truly internalised the fact that every Conservative candidate is at war with the whole GOP.
These early recognition battles are fights fought in a desert: and the GOP controls most of the wells. There really is a ‘best’ time to jump in.
Also: if GOP conservatives did coalesce about Cain - as some have suggested - then I’m sure (like many of us) Palin wouldn’t regard that as the worst thing in the world. She might well endorse him.
You’re already turned off to Sarah. Don’t try to blame her supporters for that. Michelle Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll and where is she today? We’re 19 months away from the next election - these polls will come and go. Rudy won a few straw polls too. They don’t mean all that much this early in the game - except to you and the media.
>>Funny thing about the independents at my work - they never vote anything but democrat
I’ve noticed the same thing. It make sense. In this day of massive political divides, anyone who is independent obviously stands for nothing more than “what will you do for me”. That makes them a Democrat by default since Republicans rarely promise any direct payments to individuals.
Any of the ones you mentioned will beat Obama but Sarah would have the most fun and do it with a smile on her face the whole time. Herman Cain did the conservatives a big favor because he worked hard where others thought it was not important to do so. Perry defecated on himself and Romney cannot ever represent us. However if Romney were chosen he would kill Obama but we should not have to hold our nose to make it happen.
Good points about Sarah Palin waiting to get into political race.
Was this added for comic relief? Just look at the comments on this thread to see how few hold this view.
[I dont have to explain my reasons why. Its just my opinion.]
That’s fine. I was just wondering what your reasoning was as it might give me some insight that I was missing in my own opinions.
Herman Cain defeated Clinton in debate and he can certainly defeat Obama
She has done a masterful job of avoiding the circular firing squad the Republican wannabes have (once again) let the media form them into, though, hasn't she?
[Sarah has when it takes to come in and mop up. I guess you did not see her campaign her tail off in 2008.]
Actually, no I didn’t. I even saw her speak at an event in Lee’s Summit, MO. Took my husband and two kids to see her as well.
