Here is video of a Meet the Press panel today discussing the political future of Gov. Sarah Palin. The panel included Roger Simon, Andrea Mitchell, David Gregory, Bob Shrum, and Karen Hughes. Several on the panel believes she has a chance to win the 2012 Nomination and clearly believe she would be an easy mark for Barack Obama to knock off in the 2012 election. The Democrats seem to all be rooting for her. . . . . . (Watch Video)

Yeah the Democrats are rooting for her, that is why they bash her every second of everyday. What do they think, they think by bashing her and smearing her she would want to run. Who do they think they are fooling, ONLY THEMSELVES. Yeah Dems, keep on saying it, if you say it enough times perhaps even you will believe it

They now try reverse psychology. They want Americans to think that the liberals want her to run, so Obama can defeat her.

But she WILL run and WILL defeat him.

Just the fact that they had a freakin PANEL discussion about Sarah Palin, a woman who has not been in the national spotlight for what, 8 MONTHS says A LOT. If they were rooting for her, they would show respect towards her, they would say nice things about her instead of bashing her and demeaning her. All they are showing is that they KNOW she can beat him. I took psychology classes in college, this is the CLASSIC thing that people do when they are terrified of someone, they demean them and smear them, but in reality are scared to DEATH of them

Even Karen Hughes puts a screwdriver in the back. These people all have to go. Andrea Mitchel too.

Andrea Mitchell does not surprise me, she is a loyal Obama supporter. Sarah should have thrown her overboard on that boat of hers when she had the chance. But Karen Hughes, didn’t she work for George Bush, she has the NERVE to bash Sarah. Wait a second, weren’t people yesterday bashing Sarah for wanting nothing to do with the GOP, Karen Hughes is a Republican right..these are the people you want Sarah Palin to support. With friends like this who needs enemies

How many times have I heard the same crud from the demoncrats during the last X decades? They always say “We hope so and so will run”, but they’re only saying it in fear.

They said that about Reagan. They said that about G.W. Bush.

Sarah Palin, given the greater access to the electorate that a presidential nomination would bring, can win the hearts and minds of the American people. I just hope she’s spending the next year solidifying her understanding of the issues.

Andrea Mitchell: “She’s not deeply RED.”
OK by me!

How can anyone watch that crap anymore? I turned the MSM including Fox off in my house the morning after the elections. Nothing but a pack of liars.

They want it both ways: she is no threat so we hope she runs....but wait! She is a threat so let’s destroy her. HUH?

Tell me, what other failed VP candidate were they talking about 8 months later? And even more incredibly one who just resigned mid term. The media knows full well that the resignation decision was correct and the most effective way to position for a 2012 run. It takes a full day to fly to DC from AK.

They are absolutely scared shitless of her power and the backlash that will be seen by Zer0's Diversity Incompetence.

The hateful libs obviously never heard of reverse psychology. In order to destroy your enemies, you act with kindness, show them you are not afraid of them, but these idiots are so darn stupid and filled with hate, instead of treating her nicely, they say horrible things about her. I bet Sarah was watching and thinking “Hey maybe I should run for President, they are obviously scared shitless that I can win”

Yeah that was the first thing I thought of, they had an actual PANEL about her, 6 or so people having a DISCUSSION, an actual PANEL discussion, about a person who has not been in the political spotlight for EIGHT FREAKIN MONTHS, who does that. What, nothing else going on in the world, everything is all good I suppose. The fact that they would even bother doing this, an actual panel discussion says all I need to know. Did they ever discuss Geraldine Ferraro, heck not even John Kerry was mentioned after 2004, no one gave a rats behind about him either, but they gotta have a panel discussion about Sarah Palin..PRICELESS. Tells me everything I need to know

If they REALLY wanted her as their opponent in 2012 then they would be giving her the ‘John McCain treatment’ and pumping up her candidacy by saying that she was the only one who could unite the party, bring in moderates, do a reach around the aisle, etc.

Franklin Roosevelt was a failed VP candidate in 1920. Since he got polio in the summer of 1921, people were probably talking about him then.

With Palin leading the tidal wave of opposition to these destroyers of our country, she can pick whatever office she wants. The American people want a leader with spine and guts. That leader will be supported by millions upon millions of Americans.

Who cares what these asses think? Sarah may not be ready to run by 2012, and she may decide that she doesn't want the office. She could work effectively in other ways, as does Rush Limbaugh.

I am certain that she is the liberals' worst nightmare, which is why they are so obsessed with her. If they really believed all the bull they've put out about her, they wouldn't have bothered to put it out in the first place.

Had the same panel discussed Obama’s chances four years ago, the unanimous conclusion would have been: “Barack who?”

Karen Hughes is the mental giant that hired Scott McClellan and continued to think he was quality material. She has always made a bad impression on tv.

If they are rooting for her why is David Axlerod running around telling people they fear John Huntsman the most?

I'm sure it was followed by a panel discussion of the other potential political candidates, or about how Michael Steele is running the RNC, or even how Republicans are going to questions the new Supreme court nominee, right? No?!? What, you mean they spent precious air time talking about a woman who they say just ruined here career by resigning and isn't yet running for anything? Why no discussion of Governor Sanford's intentions to run for President? No discussion of the failed stimulus package? I'm shocked I tell you shocked! /sarcasm

:-) Yep they know she's going to run and they can't figure out how to stop her. And they'll still be doing that come inauguration day while she's being sworn in as they spend all their time running polls to see how she could possible have won. The media is obviously filled with freaking' geniuses.
