Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Could Run....And Win
Posted on 12/18/2011 10:00:30 AM PST by fantail 1952
Many have truly lost interest in the Republican primary and its "candidates." None appear fully acceptable, all have major faults and excess baggage that could easily cause them to lose to an absolutely unre-electable sitting president.
While polls are often flawed and many are absolutely biased, I have seen a consistent trend that any particular GOP candidate VS Obama consistently loses, given a choice between "Any Republican" and Obama, the Republican wins handily. What this means is that the majority of voters, about 75% in the GOP in fact, are totally unhappy with the choices offered.
It is my considered opinion that an overwhelming majority of both Republican rank-and-file, and independent voters alike, are seeking someone to challenge Obama....other than the candidates offered.
Who does this leave?
As I recall, some four months ago, about the time of her triumphant tours and speeches, Sarah Palin stated that she "would run the most unconventional campaign ever." To this point, if she reverses course and comes in late to the fray, that would be the "most unconventional" move ever!
These endless and largely meaningless drivel-driven so called debates have done little more than pissed off many conservatives. By opting out in October, Sarah was insulated from this nonsense, and actually strengthened her desirability.
If, and this is a big IF, she decided to reenter any time before the Iowa caucus, she would likely show amazing support.
On the other hand, waiting to come in after the January mayhem, when deep divisions have made a clear frontrunner's unlikely, who better to fill the void?
Or even, with no leader in delegate count going into the convention, and with the prospect of internal war within the party, who better to be selected to heal the divisions and lead the GOP to victory?
Lets face it folks, we could well see the most unconventional campaign for nomination in the history of our nation!
But then, there is also another option........
Sorry to burst your bubble.
Too many filing deadlines have passed.
She said “No”.
Someone other than an establishment candidate being picked at a brokered convention is a fantasy.
Sorry, but what is in front of you are what you have to choose from.
“In war as in life, it is often necessary when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.” - Winston Churchill.
Why wait? Write her in.
And to the folks complaining about some of us still supporting her: If the other candidates were really that much better, she would no longer be an issue. They’re not, and she is. Stop trying to fix what’s not broken, and start trying to fix what is.
Then you are voting for Obama....
I'm not a Romney fan either but ABO (anyone but Obama)
Sarah should NOT run..
Not sure why she inspires such zealotry.
Voting for someone who isn't running helps only Obama.
From your lips to God’s ears. RUN SARAH RUN.....
You don’t deserve a sandwich made by an HIV+ Calcutta untouchable who hasn’t washed his hands since birth.
Which is why I’m not voting for anybody in the declared field. I think Trig could run more adroitly than most of these folks, let alone Sarah. He might even be smarter than a few of them. His only real problem is he’s not old enough.
Looking at the state of the race now, there is an extremely high probability that the GOP nominee is going to be one that I will have an intense revulsion towards. Coupled with the GOP establishment’s three-year long campaign of backstabbing Palin, all I can say is that, as someone who has voted exclusively GOP my entire voting life... I could truly vote third-party at the drop of a hat. Or, just “write-in” Palin’s name, which would probably an even more viscerally satisfying option.
You’re right, I don’t.
But you might.
Nope. America, with the exception of a few moonie-like followers, has had more than enough of the palin circus already.
Then you're helping Obama.
That's one vote AGAINST him that won't be counted.
Voting for people who aren't running is throwing your vote into the trash can.
