Skip to comments.Palin can 'snap her fingers' for money, run and beat Obama, warns GOP expert

How easy would it be for Sarah Palin to raise enough money to run and beat Obama? A GOP expert today claims all Palin would have to do is, "Snap her fingers," with a warning that Democrats should be careful what they wish for. Thus, on Fox News today, the fight was on when Ben Chao, a Democrat who boasted that his "firm beats Republicans for a living," tried first to make light of Democrat losses in the 2010 election and finally quipped, "I dream about Sarah Palin," as an opponent to President Obama in 2012.
In a quick warning to all Democrats who bluff that Palin would be an easy win for Obama but Romney would make for a tough match, Dee Dee Benkie, expert GOP strategist, narrowed her eyes and cautioned, "Be careful what you wish for. It's funny how the Democrats keep beating up on Sarah Palin. I just think that's curious."
"Snap her finger, she will raise a ton of money," responded Benkie with smug confidence, adding, "if she gets in - and I think she's in."
When Benkie was asked if Sarah Palin was "ready" to be president, Benkie didn't hesitate, "Yes, of course. And I think she would beat Obama."
When Benkie fielded the inevitable subject of how polarizing Sarah Palin is ,of polls showing independents would never vote for Palin ,she quickly dismissed that subject with, "Who cares about those people? That's fine. Those people are not going to vote for her. The key is, it is a challenge for the independents, but she will motivate the base, will over-produce with the base, so you cannot count out Sarah Palin."

She's got my money!
Gonzo was one second ahead of you, Vet.
All Sarah has to do is ask, and the money floodgates will open like never before.
I’d send her a bundle is she runs.
I am waiting until she declares because I got suckered by Fred Thompson last time.
C’mon, Sarah, my checkbook is open.
Sarah Palin has 3,110,659 followers on Facebook. That is 1% of the U.S. population.
She posts a “I need $2,000,000 to buy blanket radio ad in Iowa, please send $1 to my PAC” and she will be running a $10,000,000 money bomb in 24 hours.
Politicians still don’t get how powerful social network sites are.
‘Yeppers!’ oops - I meant “You betcha!” [wink]
And - she’ll have my money, too. I do so wish she and DeMint would team up.
Cannot WAIT to send her cash. Early and often.
Dang, 2DVet didn’t catch this one??? Good work ;-)
The key word here is “bluff”. That’s all this talk about “Palin can’t win” is - a big bluff they hope will discourage her from running. If she were a conventional politician who gave a damn about polls and punditry, it might.
But she’s not. Game on!
Has a nice ring to it.
0bama-biden sounded like the guy we just canoed.
She is obviously the strongest candidate, or the media would ignore her. They will prop up Romney/Pawlenty/Huck until they get the nomination, and then destroy them. Thats a fact. They did it to McCain.
The left’s heads would literally explode if she ran and beat Obama. I would love it.
I even posted it as a thread but he beat me by a few seconds. LOL
The independants broke heavily for Obama last time, and I can cut them some slack because he was new, it was ‘novel’ to vote for a black man to finally prove they are not racist as the media says they are, and they were LIED TO (about Bush’s record and Obama)
After two years of the media and pelosi hammering about the ‘failed bush administration’ they have gotten it sunk so far in people’s heads that they are STILL repeating that nonsense.
These people will NOT be fooled again. (most of them, at least) And they turst the liberal media FAR LESS than they did.
Independants are independants because they dont trust R’s or D’s.
And they sure got taught a lesson not to trust this particular D
Plus...she can put dozens of volunteer feet on the ground in precincts to help police the vote -like nobody else in the country.
I also am waiting until she declares but won’t do it until because of Thompson as well. But I am getting excited and will be very depressed if she opts out.
