On Wednesday, on FOX Business Follow the Money, Palin told Eric Bolling she would do whatever [she] could to help, leaving the door open to any and all possibilities should a brokered convention take form later this year.
Sarah Palin Talks About 2012 Prospects & Possible Brokered Convention
It is set up to keep the GOP establishment in power and the same for the Marxist, I mean Democratic party.
LOL! Thanks, but in re-reading my comment I see that it was barely coherent. Glad you got the gist of it, though.
The GOP does NOT WANT Sarah.
She scares the heck outta them.
But I sure would be fun. She would hand the Kenyen his arse for sure.
This time she knows what she is up against and has had a chance to prepare mentally and spiritually.
No reasonable person could have anticipated the level of vitriol and scrutiny she got last time.
When has the opposition ever moved an enemy literally next door to a candidate to spy on them and their family 24/7???
I’m not sure I’d want anyone who didn’t have what it takes to run for office to be given the nomination.
Keep telling yourself that. It won’t help but it will make you feel better.
Let them keep on thinking that. When it comes to Sarah, all bets are off.
Time to get back to simple! Sounds like we are beginning to wake up though, I admire Sarah for not letting them get away with it without a good fight at least.
I’m barely coherent, but I know what I like...
Certainly a brokered convention traditionally favors the party officeholders and other regulars. But what are their choices? If it is brokered, then Romney did not win it and Huntsman was worse. Would they really go with JEB, I doubt the beltway types would have the name Bush crammed down their throats where they live and they know that would happen. So they would be back to Daniels or Christie maybe?
As for the conservatives, who do we counter with? Palin most certainly. Maybe Rubio? Gingrich and Santorum would have not won it.
So we have find the reason this convention might be brokered. For various reasons, the GOP top tier candidates did not enter and that fractured the field some. So in a brokered convention might it be:
1. Christy who had not been a governor long enough and who had a state government to administer.
2. Daniels whose family said no?
3. Palin who felt called not to enter this primary field?
4. Rubio who was to new as a senator to run, though it did not stop Obama.
Given that the US public traditionally elects governors not legislators president and this recent deviation from that has been a disaster, I would think that Rubio is more of a VP choice. He can take that slot and not resign from the Senate unless elected.
So if not one of the actual candidates, I can imagine the following possibilities:
coming out of a brokered convention. Am I missing anyone?
I love Sarah Palin and her views match up so well with mine. That said, I hate to think what a presidency would do to her two youngest children. A life in Alaska with relative freedom and parents who have time to spend time with them is so SO much better for them than a four-eight year stint in Washington.
Paul Ryan didn’t enter the race this time because he wanted his girls to be raised in Wisconsin in relative peace. The nation sure could use his leadership now too, but he has put his family first.
she is the most ready of any of the candidates...I have taken her off my pedestal I had her on. But she is the best I can see, although West is great. But she is ready and willing it looks like. Dog fight in the Republican party...
I can’t get excited until the first prayer thread for her goes up.
You are missing Paul. Either Ron OR Rand. I hope neither of them are on the ticket, but you have to put them in the race if the convention is brokered.
I was a big Sarah supporter, and up until her decision not to run, I thought she was a strategic and media-manipulating genius.
Since that time, I’ve reassessed her behavior. She now seems a bit flighty and self-serving, I’m afraid.
short reply, yet totally accurate.
It's because the good old USA won't hold run-off elections. If no one gets a majority, we should just hold a run-off primary (or election) between the two top vote-getters.
It's a bit expensive, but that way, the winner would have a true mandate from the people. And in an increasingly divided country, our leaders really need that legitimacy.
