Sarah Palin In 2016? Conservative Columnist Says ‘Yes Please’
The Inquisitr ^ | November 19 2012 | (unattributed)

Posted on 11/19/2012 7:06:51 PM PST by Cringing Negativism Network

Should Sarah Palin run for president in 2016? Conservative columnist Charlotte Allen thinks so, arguing that the former Alaskan governor is just what the GOP needs to revitalize its campaign chances in 2016.

It's a picture of a person coming out of a store, what is creepy is trying to figure out why you think the picture is a big deal, all I can figure, is because it is a woman.

Sarah seems to run from conflict following the loss in 2008.

She gave up her office in Alaska when the going got tough (it appeared).

She ran away from the national stage and limelight, even when the press was attracted to her like moths to a flame. Sarah had an opportunity to change the party because she had / has a large following but she apparently doesn’t want it.

She does small stuff, writes books to make a living, does a Fox appearance and comes out for the occasion Tea Party candidate.

I was really disappointed in all our primary candidates, and Sarah for not campaigning, doing talk shows, and rallying around our nominees. I’m not sure why.

I think Sarah wants a life.... not the political bubble.

Ya went to Indianola, Iowa september 2011. We thought she was going to announce... presented her economic plan including 0% corporate tax rate (on top on energy, etc.)

She’s the real Conservative deal.

Surely you can do better than that. Attacking her based on a photograph where she’s out shopping? That’s extremely shallow, even for someone like you.

If you’re going to go scraping bottom, maybe you could make up something about how she uses illegal drugs or has been involved in prostitution?

Rumor has it there's some loon out there with an entire album of photos of Sarah... all with the eyes cut out of 'em, with a razor.

Again: that's just a rumor. ;)

Well if she bails this time, I’ll support your view.

As things stand now however, it appeared to this poster she made the choice to be a Mom ... for this four-year period.

I hope it was a temporary choice. I hope she has been internalizing all this, and when the time comes will unleash on America an a$$-whooping of historic proportion.

I’ll be here, raring to go.

Sarah is an Alaskan, and I believe Alaska comes first. So if anyone truly wants Sarah Palin to get back into politics they should move to Alaska first and see what Sarah saw there.

I doubt she will venture out into the lower 48 election scam at all, not with the massive voter fraud in effect, even Dall sheep know when to quit butting heads. There is no fair election so I can say honestly Sarah will NOT be interested until the election process is changes and heavily enforced.

Wow, actually Palin is the biggest name in republican politics, and is building the party, and moving it to the right.

In 2010, Palin was the single most important person of either party in shaping the election, and she had great success in the 64 races she lent her influence to and in helping to move the party right with winners like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, Nikki Haley, and many other more other conservative candidates and congress people.

In 2012, a repeat of the same as the “Kingmaker” continued her reshaping of the GOP in her image with 14 endorsements and victories like Ted Cruz over Dewhurst in Texas, and the incredible victory of Fischer over Bob Kerry for the open seat in Nebraska and of course, others, and house victories.

In 2014, as the leader of the conservative wing of the GOP and the nation, Palin will be in the thick of things again.

The most influential endorsement in America, and in history.

Sorry Sarah, but going on Hannity and Gretta, and Tweeting simply doesn't cut it. So help me, if she drags us along like she did last time, I'm done!

If she's not going to run, she needs to make that crystal early on. Not trying to be a jerk here, but I'm not investing myself like i did last time, just to be disappointed. (I know...poor me).

LOL! Thank you...I feel better already. :-)

I guess I’m being a little hard on Sarah by saying she “dragged us along.” I’m sure there were probably things she and her family were weighing. I really do get it. I guess in reality her making the decision to run or not run will have to be announced at some strategic point between now and 2016. Part of me wonders if it’s already too late. I’m not a wet blanket, but reality is what it is.

We need someone to run in 2016 that will flip the bird to the GOP-e and run on a true Conservative platform. Someone who will grab enough attention and support from the base to make the GOP take them seriously. Someone who can put forth a full-throated defense of liberty and traditional conservative values as the only true way to help everyone prosper.

Sarah Palin could do all that. Can she win? I don’t know, but we are at the point where to stand idly by and let the elitist ruling class determine which ineffective moderate candidate shall be “our choice” is not an option.

If we’re going to lose in 2016, I want to lose with a true conservative on the ticket. At least then we can say we tried.

Insuring that our voting system is not rigged (or riggable) should be our primary effort at this point. Without this effort we will be unable to rely on the vote

“It doesn’t matter who I would support. There isn’t a Republican who could win a national election.”

I love Sarah Palin but you are right about this. Until we have honest elections, it won’t matter which Republican is chosen. So depressing...

It doesn’t matter who I would support. There isn’t a Republican who could win a national election.

Just look at Stormer's posting history. It speaks volumes.

Translation:?

He/she would vote for anything, no matter how liberal/moderate, the GOP-E puts up.

Would rather have her not run at this point, but remain indefinitely relevant and in charge of the GOP machine.

I personally don`t envision another Republican in the White House (except by invitation) because the economic divide and demographic scales.. along with those of Americans` warming attitudes on socialism,.. have tipped decidedly in the dems` favor. This country just confirmed its center-left political orientation.

That said, a strong conservative in a presidential race would give voice to those who can win further down the ticket. So, Congressional and gubernatorial candidates might benefit to some degree.

But, the GOP winning the White House? Nope.

Actually, basic search would expose you to the reality she stepped down to stop the false ethics charges from Obamalinsky goons that had created $600k in legal fees.

Her salary was $100k.

Do the math.

They tried to destroy her financially...but she reloaded and moved forward in a different direction.

Now try to understand why she stepped down to live to fight another day. Which she has done.

Sorry to burst your bubble. Sarah couldn’t get elected dogcatcher.

You're absolutely right. We should settle for McCain . . . or for Romney . . . or for . . . Chris Christie???

Christie has influential friends. Maybe if we go for him, the media will play nice next time around. It's worth a try. That's what we should do - it's what all the liberals want us to do, and I trust their advice as much now as I did four years ago and eight years ago. Why would we settle for a genuine conservative like Palin if she doesn't have MSNBC's approval? Why would anyone think that having a candidate with an unknown number in the tens of millions of enthusiastic supporters would help more than having Romney's 60 million reluctant supporters did?
