You should go into the political consulting business with your abilities to forecast the future like that.

It’s an interesting analysis and entirely possible.

However, if that’s the republican strategy it’s going to fail in the south on Super Tuesday. The South isn’t going to vote for Romney any more than they did last time. It’s going to hand the Republican nomination to another candidate, someone who doesn’t drop out after the Northeast primaries.

It might well split republicans and hand Obama another term, but he’d get that against Romney anyway. So unless she splits the vote against a better republican, Obama’s in. Obama is going to be hard to beat regardless. Because the disatisfied looney left doesn’t have anyone else to go to, and the blacks are still for him.

I think Palin would pull more votes than Romney and it would send major shock waves through the Democrat Lite party of republicans.

And I think that it might just work.

Romney is just the placeholder until someone comes along that captures America's attention. That may be Perry, but it may not.

Palin is not running. She has tasted the pain a campaign creates. Right now, she is making $20,000,000 a year, and will be a kingmaker in 2012.

If someone who shares her values can be elected, she is smart enough to know that is victory without another round of pain.... and since she will be that person's “kingmaker,” she will be the most powerful Republican for the next 8 to 10 years.

The minute Sarah declares, all pretense of anyone else having a shot will evaporate.

Well, I don’t know if this deserves a serious answer or not.

But I half agree with you.

Palin will run as a Republican if the party comes around and starts making sense. She did so in Alaska, twice, and beat out corrupt Republican insiders for Mayor and Governor.

If the media and the party insiders refuse to let that happen, however, then I agree. She will run as the Second Party candidate, and the Republican Party will be finished.

When the Republicans replaced the Whigs in 1860, because the Whig party was simply too corrupt to survive any longer, a lot of the best former Whigs came over and joined the new Republican Party. I imagine that would happen again. If the Roves and other insiders refuse to let reform into the party, then a lot of the best Republicans would probably come over, sooner or later, to the new party.

It would take someone like Sarah to do this. I think she has the capability to do it. And nobody else does.

But she won’t do it unless she has to. Still, I agree. She is leaving that door open, in case the GOP decides to commit suicide rather than change.

I think Freeper MrEdd summed it up here recently.

I have zero interest in helping the USA collapse into a mire of governance by twin socialist authoritarian parties.

Tea anyone?

None of this has come to pass and at this point, there is no strong indication that Romney will win the nomination.

We have to keep up the faith that we can get a true conservative in office. We ain't dead yet.

Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

If you're so damned smart, then why can't she just win the Republican primary?

This is crazy talk and if Palin would even think of this, she is no patriot--she is a traitor and deserves NO respect, yet alone a vote.

Wow. I think you nailed it.

Somebody needs to send this to Mark Levin.

Mark, I love ya, man, more than you could know, but you must drop the "I'll vote for Elmer Fudd" false beacon.

Romney as president -- and he disastrously could be, as Obama becomes more despised by Americans every day, and he is -- would guarantee inflammation of statist liberalism at all levels of government, only it would be WORSE because it was done under the "conservative" banner, because AS LONG AS YOU VOTE FOR ELMER FUDD, you will be allowing the GOP to blatantly misrepresent itself as the party of limited government conservatism. Congratulations -- you just voted for more statist liberalism and delivered a blow to the strength and unity of true limited government Americans.

God bless Sarah Palin.

I just had to hear again that Sarah is stupid and mocking her for the Paul Revere story. 
 
Telling my friends they are free to live in the dark and be less than curious about the historical facts of Revere's ride, their outright lies or ignorance were not going to change Revere's own account of the events, written in his hand.
 
Here are three testimonies by Revere housed in the Massachusets Historical Society:
 
This account is thought to have been penned in 1798
I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that.
When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back,
and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared
to have the command, examined me, where I came from,
& what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he as-
ked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if
I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He
demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and
aded, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River,
and that There would be five hundred Americans there
in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up.
He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us,
when all five of them came down upon a full gallop;
one of them, whom I afterwards found to be Major
Mitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head, called me by name,
& told me he was going to ask me some questions, & if I
did not give him true answers, he would blow my
brains out. He then asked me similar questions to those
above. He then orderd me to mount my Horse, after
searching me for arms.
 
http://www.masshist.org/database/img-viewer.php?item_id=99&img_step=1&tpc=&pid=&mode=transcript&tpc=&pid=#page1
 
Paul Revere probably prepared this deposition, containing an account of his ride to Lexington, in 1775, at the request of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress.
at the bottom of the Pasture,
intending, when I gained that, to jump my Horse & run afoot; just as I
reached it, out started six officers, siesed my bridle, put thier pistols to my
Breast, ordered me to dismount, which I did: One of them, who appeard to
have the command there, and much of a Gentleman, Asked me where I came
from; I told him, he asked what time I left it; I told him, he seemed supprised,
said Sir may I crave your name, I answered my name is Revere, what said he
Paul Revere; I answered yes; the others abused much; but he told me not to
be afraid, no one should hurt me; I told him they would miss their Aim.


[Page 2]

He said they should not, they were only awaiting for some Deserters they expected
down the Road: I told him I knew better, I knew what they were after; that
I had alarmed the country all the way up, that their Boats, were catch'd
a ground, and I should have 500 men their soon; one of them said they had
1500 coming; he seemed supprised and rode off, into the road, and informed
them who took me, they came down immeaditly on a full gallop, one of them
(whom I since learned was Major Mitchel of the 5th Regiment Clap'd his Pistol
to my head, and said he was going to ask me some questions, if I did not tell
the truth, he would blow my brains out. I told him I esteemed my self a Man
of truth, that he had stopped me on the high way, & made me a prisoner, I
knew not by what right; I would tell him the truth; I was not afraid;
He then asked me, the same questions that the other did, and many more, but
was more particular; I gave him much the same Answers; he then Ordered me
to mount my horse, they first searched me for pistols. When I was mounted,
the Major took the reins out of my hand, and said by G-d Sir you are not to
ride with reins I asure you; and gave them to an officer on my right, to lead
me, he then Ordered 4 men out of the Bushes, & to mount their horses; they were
Country men which they had stopped who were going home; then ordered us to March.
 
This The draft deposition was the basis for a clean and corrected copy, Paul Revere's deposition, fair copy, circa 1775.
 
Mr.
Prescot said to me putt on, he turned to the left, I turned to the Right, + [See additional information provided by Paul Revere at the bottom of page 1.] towards a
wood in the bottom of the pasture, intending when I reached that, to jump my horse &
Run afoot. Just as I reached it out started Six others on horseback, wrode up to me with their
Pistols in their hands put them to my Breast siesed my bridle and ordered me to dismount, which I did. One of them who appeared to
have the command there, and much of Gentleman, asked me where I came
from, I told him, he asked me what time I left it, I told him, he asked me said Sir may I crave your
Name, I answered my Name was Revere, he said what Paul Revere, I said yes, the others the others abused me much, but he told me not to be afraid, they should not
hurt me. I told him they would miss their Aim. He said they should not, they were after sour deserters
that were on the Road. I told him I knew better, I knew what they were after, that I had alarmed
the Country all the way up, and that their Boats had catched aground, and I should have 500
men their soon. He seemed supprised and rid imeaditly up to the Road to them that stopped me.
 
So was in fact correct but, everyone seems bent on proving her an idiot but ignoring what the real problems are in this country.
 
None of this idiotic and adolescent observation will put food on the table or even make more affordable.
 
Fuel supplies and the ever escalating cost are not being addressed.
 
A government bent on telling you how to live your lives and just who will spend your money with are not being addressed.
 
But banal, churlish and factually incorrect hubris are so important? /S

That is a real possibility but if Romney should ascend to the position of sole candidate you can rest assured the GOP will have cut its own throat.
