Sarah Palin Is Running For President Of The United States 2012.
Unite And State ^ | 10/04/2011 | Mayer Abbey

Posted on 10/04/2011 3:15:59 PM PDT by PalinCain2012

The announcement is to be expected and will be coming shortly from all that I keep hearing, and my inbox is exploding. The writing is on the wall. The establishment class in the Republican party have thrown everything they could at thwarting a Palin run. There have been recent primary date changes in Florida and South Carolina. These moves were artificially moved forward to prevent any more time for a candidate to game the system, to leisurely let the field collapse before entering. This was a specifically choreographed effort by the GOP. The fear of a "Rogue" candidate is almost bordering on hysteria. They must be in control and must be a part of any candidacy. They cannot handle the rejection that Palin casts their way.

The establishment is under pressure because they know "they" will lose the party to a conservative coalition and they will soon be out of jobs. There was a strong push for a Chris Christie run. I predicted last week that he was not running, but that he would wait until the last possible moment to finally concede definitively that he was out. That moment came earlier today. I know there are many out there that will point out that he has been saying no for a long long time, and while that is true he has consistently dropped little nuggets that gave the establishment hope. The media was dragging the story a long and let us be honest Chris Christie loved the attention. The truth is Chris Christie did not want to run, he was being drafted to run or to string a long the media with the idea of a run. This would run down the clock and hopefully prevent Palin from entering the race.

The conventional collective wisdom

I am so hoping this is true. I understand this is more inside baseball talk and noone will truly know the truth until we see Sarah physically say it. But the writer was part of 2008 and is very hopeful. I am sorry that the article contains a bunch of html links that are not reproducing.

I can't see myself voting for Romney so this has to happen. I hope that we all say a collective prayer and I mean that literally because it appears that we just need one final nudge for this to become 100% truth.

Romney has ZERO political courage, which is what we must demand of a candidate in this election.

The collective wisdom of “run down the clock” regarding Christie actually would benefit Palin now. If he could still get in, how is she late?

I love Savage but I cannot listen to him anymore. He has changed I do not quite know what he stands for anymore, that he has repeatedly bragged about his dinner with Romney. I don’t think borders, language and culture matter as much anymore with him.

"We need to pray for her."

Pray hard (I Thess 5:17)
The current candidates have expended a lot of money and energy clawing (mostly at each other) to get this far - Sarah is coming in fresh (and somewhat flush with cash) - and she is already inside Obama's head.
Palin Time!!

I certainly expect a renewed interest in Christie the minute Palin declares 100% that she is in. Absolutely.

I would welcome her to the race. HOWEVER ... I should point out that if, rather than coming to the fore, she instead threw her weight behind Cain -- to which Cain would thank her with a VP slot -- this election would already be over, and they would win in a landslide, and Palin would not need to spend a fraction of her coffers in the effort. (Whereas competing against Cain and the others as the nominee would be expensive, divisive, and without guarantee of success.) There is absolutely no downside for Mrs. Palin in lending her shoulder to Cain after having negotiated the VP slot. At this stage of the game, I personally hope this is the direction she takes. It is the biggest win for everybody.

It would be good to have another ‘conservative-in-waiting’ because, now that Cain seems to be rising, he is going to get an onslaught of MSM attention. This passed weekend was mild. The MSM haven't even started to pulverize him.

It appears that the Republicans and MSM did the job on Perry by destroying his changes.

It is going to be either Romney or Palin. If Palin doesn't jump in, it is going to be Romney. And he would be about as bad as John McCain would have been.

[There was a strong push for a Chris Christie run.]

Yup, that was an amazing bit of hysteria by the RINOs since they can see Romney has zero traction. The Wall Street Journal had an editorial about the shortened primary window preempting every new candidate but Christie and now he wasn’t running. Glaring omission of Palin’s name.

If Palin runs, the lamentations of the PDSers who said she was just in it for the money should flow like rivers.

These moves were artificially moved forward to prevent any more time for a candidate to game the system, to leisurely let the field collapse before entering. This was a specifically choreographed effort by the GOP.

Horsesh*t! Someone needs less tin foil. The states are fighting over influence. It has nothing to do with an RNC conspiracy to game the system.

I have to admit that if Palin enters the race in the next week or so she will have to be crowned the Master of Political Timing.

Perry looks like a goner as does Bachmann. Cain is a good guy but can he poll conservative votes ahead of a Sarah Palin? I don’t think so. Gingrich - nope. Ron Paul - with that foreign policy - also a nope. The rest of field - big nope.

So it could be Palin, Cain and Romney. Palin can win that.

Get out the popcorn. It’s Sarah-time.

Yawns.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

She is not presidential, too much drama...and I give her credit in thinking she would not do it "for the sake of the children". The family has been through enough ridicule, lies..innuendos; after a while no one knows the truth and could care less; people get tired and move on. Palin will be successful as a popular Fox News Contributor during the 2012 election time-frame. Palin can count her blessings in other ways..and am sure has many times. It's too complicated now.

As the Governor from NJ said,[a dig maybe?] he will continue in his job to which he had been elected to serve his own voters in NJ.

It’ll be Palin/Perry.

That’s how it is going to go down. Perry will deliver Texas. Romney can’t deliver Mass, or he’d be in. Cain can’t deliver anything.

Perry will be the institutional GOP guy, and Palin will be the maverick. He will also serve as the leaker, because Palin is going to throw daylight everywhere. Neither party is interested in that, and the average joe could care less if they do or not.

She waited long enough to make sure this was going to be a referendum on EVERYTHING. She can legitimately claim that both parties have thrown EVERYTHING at her, and she’s not only still here, she’s got more influence than anybody in the race.

Frankly, I like Cain a lot... but being a political CEO is much different than Godfather's Pizza. I would vote for him over Romney but I would take Palin in a heartbeat over Cain. Perhaps she can offer him the VP slot...

Perhaps she can offer him the VP slot...

And if that is the course of events, I would support that ticket happily. We tend to favor governors over congressman for ascension to the Executive Office. This is because governors have to work within budgets at a level closer to the common man. Ironically, as a businessman, Cain has worked within budgets at a level elbow-to-elbow with the common man ... with tremendous success I might add. I, actually, would prefer his experience over the experience of just about any politician. But ... Palin was a governor. Cain/Palin or Palin/Cain makes no difference to me -- I'd back either ticket. But as I said, Cain/Palin is an more certain, less divisive, and less expensive "win".

No source. Just BS. Writers know that Palin brings clicks to a site. Just another pimp with nothing.

Primaries are moving due to competition between the states. This has NOTHING to do with Palin or any other person not running for president currently.

That’s how it is going to go down. Perry will deliver Texas

If Palin needed help winning Texas, it would mean she was about to lose in a landslide.

If Palin actually got in the race, and I feel confident she wont, and won the nomination I'd guess she'd chose Rubio to give her a better shot at Florida. If she really wanted to be unconventional, maybe Cain if he were still doing well through the primaries.
