Skip to comments.Fox News: Gov. Palin to Reveal 2012 Pick on Greta Tonight
Posted on 11/15/2011 7:52:36 AM PST by Springfield Reformer
Gov. Palin tonight will reveal on Greta Van Susteren's On the Record which declared candidate she believes has the best chance of beating Obama in 2012, according to promotional language on Fox News' home page and in a promo video.
If the foregoing is true, we can reasonably conclude that all reconsideration, "earthquake" and other such efforts should cease. Further, this pick may or may not constitute an official Palin endorsement of a declared candidate.
Herman Gingrich or Newt Cain.
I think it could be any of them.
I’d rather she hold her fire at this stage. These guys need to battle it out on their own without major endorsements from figures with large followings. I like that Rush does not endorse because, as he says, these guys need to earn it on their own.
Is her opinion better than that of anyone else?
Many seem to think so.
This is a WRONG move by Palin IMHO. She should stay out of this unless she’s willing to throw her hat into the ring and declare her candidacy. This has the potential of harming the GOP.
Now there's some serious juggling and parsing of words. This is whom she thinks can win...but not necessarily whom she endorses.
Thanks Fox editors...I'll just listen to what she says and decide myself if it is an endorsement or not.
Given a choice between yours and hers? Hmmmm, wait, wait, let me think. OK, hers. At least for me. And I do vote. :)
She will endorse Romney.
No way will she endorse Herman Cain. My guess is Newt. I think she has to be aware to Endorse someone like Romney would be Conservative Suicide.....
Doesn’t really necessarily sound like she’ll be endorsing anyone, just discussing the race. Seems more like Fox is again overdoing the promoting, trying to give that impression. Not unlike the way they made a big deal about her appearance on the Bret Baier thing last Friday, which turned out to be nothing more than old footage from months back!
Palin on Perrys Vaccination Executive Order: Thats Crony Capitalism
It will be Newt.
She has to support the “Not Mitt” candidate, and Cain has proven too unaware of critical domestic and foreign policy issues, to be a Presidential candidate.
Seriously, I think she'll pick Cain. Newt is too much of a long time Beltway insider for her to endorse. Santorum is too far down in the polls. Everyone else is likely to be politically unacceptable to her.
She introduced Rick Perry last year at some important function and said he was the greatest thing since peanut butter and the kind of conservative that this country needs. To not endorse him now would really surprise me. If not Perry, I would think Cain or Newt. If she endorses the liberal Romney she is done as being a serious player in conservative politics. I also think she should keep her mouth shut and let the primary process play itself out. That’s what DiMent is doing.
Is he for legalizing marijuana? On the principles of Liberty, I am so.
Don’t care, I’ll still vote my own choice just like I did in my district’s congressional race.
Palin endorsed McCain 2010.
McCain refused to endorse Palin 2012.
Most likely, Palin will endorse Romney.
I'm saying it's either Cain or Gingrich, and more likely Cain, in part because of the strong Tea Party connection. But she's also said some nice things about Newt, so that would be an interesting development, and rather adverse to Cain. Perry, IMHO, is a non-factor for Palin at this point.I agree with you 100%. There's no way in h*ll she's going to say Perry, Bachmann, Huntsman, Santorum or Paul.
And Romney, of course, is the enemy.
That leaves Cain and Gingrich.
I hope she says Gingrich but I think you're right, Cain is more likely and if she does say Cain I'm switching to Cain, from Gingrich. In the interests of Conservative Unity I will give up my own pick to go with Palin's Pick.
You could be right. I’d prefer you to be right. I think it might be premature to formally endorse at this point. Still, they are selling the show based on people wanting to know her opinion, so it will be interesting to see how this goes.
I predict she will say all of them have a good chance of beating Obama.
FOX just trying to up the viewership for Greta.
Will Governor Palin prove to be the rogue she is portrayed as--or just another Republican politician going along to get along
After the hatchet job the MSM and the GOP establishment did on SP and her family, I would think she would want to launch all missiles with this endorsement--come on Sarah, endorse Herman Cain...
He is basically the 2012 version of Huckabee with less charm.
I see where she'll be on Greta tonight and only see this..."The 2012 race has now drifted into surprise and intrigue mode. Each day seems to have a stunning development (yes, never dull!) Make sure you tune in tonight to ON THE RECORD at 10pm Governor Sarah Palin is our guest ..
Can you please post a link to your source? I may have missed it :)
She endorsed John McCain over JD Hayworth.
What a misleading headline!
Sounds like she will just be discusssing the chances of the various candidates. Hardly something to grab viewers, like an endorsment would.
Shame on FOX (but everyone does it. It’s showbiz...).
Shepard Smith looks a lot like ET these days.
At this point I wish that Palin(and I WAS a First Class Palin Supporter) would stay her FLAKY Posterior up in Wasilla and don’t SAY A DAMN THING. We(and the country) don’t need(or want) her weird brand of “drama”.
you people that keep saying Gingrich should be ashamed of yourselves. I certainly hope Sarah has more character and class than that.
Signs it will be Herman Cain
(1) Like Sarah, the Mainstream Media has gone after Cain with baseless attacks to try and destroy him
(2) Like Sarah, the MSM likes to portray Cain as a bumbling idiot who doesn’t know what they’re doing
She has more in common with Cain than with Newt.
Her respectability goes down the tubes if it’s RINO-Newt, RINO-Romney, or. Heartless-Perry. Discussions of her sanity will need to be raised if she says Kooki-Paul or Prett-boy Huntsman. There are those here that doubt she’ll pick Michele because of some on-going rivalry, and Santorum is probably out for some choice words he’s had for Palin in the past.
Come on Sarah. Hop Aboard the Cain Train. Chugging to a town near you!
Actually endorsing a candidate and supporting this candidate is a different thing all together.
Amazing how we go off on a tangent, over just about any opinion or subject. Meaningless really. It is simply another opinion ... Or our own opinion. No more no less.
I know Gov. Palin had a lot of friends here, but does it matter if she endorses someone?
Gingrich is a corrupt insider.
If you think she’ll support him you obviously don’t know her.
My guess is you show loyalty for loyalty McCain had her for VP so she repaid that debt. Some folks will argue but I think she WAS planning to run for President as she was making some Purely Calculated Political Moves
I should also add, Fox should be having Palin on to discuss issues like the Keystone pipeline, crony capitalism, Solyndra, and things like that! That’s her meat. But no, they always get back to the cornball horserace blather... the same tiresome, exasperating garbage that Rove/Morris/etc. are always wallowing in. Fox has become maddeningly unwatchable.
Who she thinks likely to win and who she would endorse could be 2 entirely different things.
Not to my mind.
In 2006, Sarah Palin was elected governor of Alaska. In June of 2007, Alaska accepted federal funding to boost access to Gardasil, the HPV vaccine.
Taking federal funds for Gardasil doesnt quite square with Palins hot shots at Perry on Fox.
You'll let her tell you how to vote?
Damn what a weak minded fool you must be.
Well then who will it be? She has already talked about disliking Cain...Perry? I can’t say I can read minds I was just making a political calculation. I think maybe she is looking who is a viable canidate and is shooting for maybe a Cabinet position. She has seen what having little or no Gov’t jobs has done to Cain.....Maybe she thinks if she is a High Level Cabinet member she will have a good chance in 2020?? Just a thought...
Did you watch it?
Me next! me next! Who should I vote for?
Palin may be trying to thin out the herd, which is LONG ovedue..Havign another 10-15 debates with 7-8 on stage...competing like trained seals for 60 seconds of time, demeans and diminishes them all...
The smart thing to say is that she feels every one of the candidates can beat Obama...
I said I’m doing it for Conservative Unity and I’m sticking with that, despite the name calling.
But thank you very much for your calumny. It is much appreciated.
FR is a much better place when we are all rude and obnoxious to each other, so again, on behalf of all of us, thank you very much.
The link I posted for this thread was to Palin Promotions, byline Ron Devito. He points to http://gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/ for more detail. But I was on to this myself last night when I was watching Mrs. Cain and heard the commercial for the next On The Record and they, not Ron Devito, specifically described it as being about Sarah’s GOP “pick.”
Now given who Fox is becoming, I agree it could still be way over-hyped, and in fact I’m really hoping that’s the case, because waiting on an endorsement has some real advantages at this point in time. OTOH, Fox may be trying to force her to play her hand early. She does work for them. I could see Ailes doing that to her.
Anyway, them’s the facts as I know them so far. Hope that helps.
(Just a thought.)
