Skip to comments.If Newt Can't Recover, We Should Look to an Open Convention... and That Means PALIN

In my view, Rich Santorum is weak, a Charlie Brown type character for whom Obama (Lucie) will simply yank the ball away as we head towards massive defeat
Not thanks- if Noot can't come back I'd prefer and open convention, Palin vs. Jeb Bush or some such thing.
Mittens would lose in November due to insufficient contrast and a disgusted GOP base. I agree he's an improvement over Obama, and not a maniacal racist/marxist- BUT ...deeply resent having Romney stuffed down my throat by the GOP old guard. At this point is merely slowing the growth rate of the state sector good enough? Methinks not.
Mark me down for 'Cuda: We used to fear her polling negatives, and honestly I was glad she didn't run. But now, after how all the negative campaigning has played out... Palin looks more than worth a chance since everybody else on the GOP side has suffered similar damage from flailing negative attacks.
All I know for sure is Rich Santorum is NOT going to cut it, my friends... talk about 'settling' for the mediocre, good grief.
I could be an enthusiastic supporter of Palin/Gingrich ticket.
Is that you, Sheriff Babeu?
I think Palin “already” is building up....from the CPAC speech to the blitz all over Fox and then to her new Sarah PAC video campaign like video points to her knowing well ahead that she going to be called upon
Me too, and real quick
Or visa versa, really doesn’t matter who tops the ticket just as long as they win and come to power, Matthew
So...when you’re pondering the imponderable next time, consider - what if Palin was able to see how this would all play out, with multiple “Non-Romney” candidates eviscerating themselves in dozens of debates, wasting millions of dollars just to divide the vote amongst them...and making a conscious decision not to join the fray, but to keep her powder dry and see what happens come convention time?
Almost sounds like a gameplan for a competition that an athlete might come up with doesn’t it? Or a strategy that a hunter might follow...
Just something fun to think about, of course ;-)
I’m all in w/this, but how did Sarah know it would come to this?
... and yeah, I still think she could take out the repugnant one.
How would you convince her to accept a draft, and how would you prove that the GOP RINO establishment had learned their lesson and were now trustworthy?
Absent a clean win by Newt that's my hope and I'll continue to work for it.
Can't wait for the screaming matches and fist fights in the aisles.
I’m not sure, meet me at the Tucson Super 8 and we’ll talk about it lol
No. I just cannot see her being on a ticket. She will NOT win against Obama.
Sarah would pulverize obama. It will/could be pure good versus pure bad. really simple.
“I could be an enthusiastic supporter of Palin/Gingrich ticket.”
Or a Gingrich/Palin ticket would be winner for me. The RINOs in the party would have a cow. GO NEWT GO!
Back in August...she told Hannity that “Mark my words, this will be an unusual election cycle” and then “there’s going to be a lot of coming and going” She knew something was up.
“Can’t wait for the screaming matches and fist fights in the aisles.”
Just like S Korean parliament lol
I got to give you credit, you guys don’t give up .
In all honesty her recent actions is what’s got me thinking about the possibilities, Mike
