A lot of Buzz already about Sarah running in 2016. From Palin4President comes a wealth of information. Some snippets:
"Romney lost because he simply couldn't turn out the vote. McCain/Palin turned out 6.2 Million more voters than Romney/Ryan did and that is all it would have taken to beat Obama this time around if you look at the numbers. Perhaps Romney should put some thought into what is was that McCain had that helped produce an extra 6.2 million votes, that helped create the tidal wave of the 2010 mid-term victories... here's a hint... she wears lipstick."
"A team of Palin and Martinez or Rubio or even Cruz would have tremendous possibilities in gaining the votes of women and Hispanics."
"But it is a very good day for Palin too, who will now, as she said clearly last month, challenge the very existence of the Republican Party and the Eastern establishment as she has been doing from the first."
"GOP Doomed Forever By Demographics Is Rubbish; 3 Key States Lost By Under 2%.There is a clear Path to a 2016 Win."

Nobody has ever beat her in a debate!
She went from her kitchen table to governor of a Man’s state in a political moment.
“No one wants to eat crow so like our Dem friends, they Deem it so and just keep right on truckin;”
This is an excellent observation. They just deem it so.
She has my support, any time. She’s the only conservative with stature and consistent values around, and the only one with the leadership ability to carry it through.
The usual suspects will fight this tooth and nail. I don’t know what the chances are, but I couldn’t think of an acceptable alternative in his last election, nor can I think of one now.
Rubio would be great in the cabinet...
Okay, ‘sometime lurker’, are you young or are you old?
That is, were you around for when Ronald Reagan was a running the joke. The giggle of half the nation?
It actually continued well into and through his administration, though somehow by his second term he pulled off the biggest landslide in modern times.
LOL! I’m onboard!
The post election has gone exactly as I imagined. All the GOP blaming all the wrong reasons and Bohner capitulating as expected.
The GOP is dead. They are the enemy of all things we hold dear. It is the height of stupidity for anyone to expect them to change when Jeb bush is already being trial ballooned by the insiders.
We either make a go of it without them or just give in now and embrace communism. Anyone clinging to the GOP should be suspect in their motives as the GOP just proved AGAIN that they do not want anything to do with us, our positions or our ‘outdated’ ideals.
Yes, one of my 'dream team' picks. Now we have 4 more years of chaos, decay, taxes, regulations, etc. My boss said, "Art, the worse it gets, the better the chance for our nominee in 2016." Hmmmn. Go Sarah! Answer the call!
Maybe Sarah has some ideas on this. Hopefully she will air them because right now we only have one party to vote for.
No, we can vote for what we believe in and let the cards fall where they may.
Voting for MR gained us what? We HAVE to stop thinking that we have only one choice. Because when we vote for that one choice, we get the very thing we don’t want. So what exactly is the reason to do that?
I ask this of everyone. What is the point of supporting people we know are against us? What is the point of giving cash, time and support to people who consistantly ;ose or on the rare occasion they win, we have to ‘hold their feet to the fire?
I want someone to logically and without snark or hyperbole to explain that to me.
On Wednesday, Greta put up a poll asking her readers who they thought, at this moment, was the leader of the Republican Party. Readers responded by choosing Sarah Palin by an overwhelming margin over the rest of the field.
Reading the comments its pretty plain that many feel Sarah could have fared far better against President Obama than Governor Mitt Romney did. Judging how well Sarahs hand picked candidates for office did, vs how those in the standard GOP mold under-performed, its not much of a stretch to think Sarah herself would have done well and likely led the party to victory.
Its also clear, reading those comments, that Gretas readers would like to see Sarah Palin run for President in 2016. Its way too early to speculate what Sarah will do, and its probably best not to speculate until she, herself says something, but Im one of those who is 100% on board with the idea of a her running.
We need strong leadership from a GOP candidate, and for the last two elections, weve had no leadership at all.
Timidity cannot defeat evil, and we are staring evil right in the face. We need a warrior at the helm.
Here are the results of the poll as of this afternoon:
Governor Sarah Palin 37.76% (2,137 votes)
Senator Marco Rubio 17.62% (997 votes)
Speaker Boehner 13.91% (787 votes)
Congressman Paul Ryan 8.54% (483 votes)
Governor Romney 8.41% (476 votes)
Someone else 6.94% (393 votes)
Governor Chris Christie 3.64% (206 votes)
Speaker Newt Gingrich 3.18% (180 votes)
Exactly right. I truly loathe the GOP-e and the inside-the-beltway blabber mouths.
I never want a Bush to ever run for President again. They are Statists to their core.
Oh thank you very much for posting the poll!
I hadn’t seen it! I hope I can still vote!
I hope I can still vote!
LOL! Me too!
So, I assume, you would have no objections to her running then? According to your thought process, she'd be destroyed quickly, would be a flash in the pan and would have to bow out pretty quickly, right?
Or is there some other motivation behind your apparent P.D.S.?
Thank you for voting!
Governor Romney 8.14% (477 votes)
Speaker Boehner 13.53% (793 votes)
Senator Marco Rubio 17.18% (1,007 votes)
Congressman Paul Ryan 8.36% (490 votes)
Governor Chris Christie 3.67% (215 votes)
Governor Sarah Palin 39.12% (2,293 votes)
Speaker Newt Gingrich 3.11% (182 votes)

I’d work from now till then to help get her elected. You Betcha!!!!!
I'm on the older side, and I certainly remember President Reagan, and Sarah Palin is not Ronald Reagan.
Whatever the media narrative may have been, Reagan had thought deeply about many issues, studied them, was speaking about them during his time at GE, well before he ran for office. He was twice elected governor of California. Candidate Reagan's interviews were different from Candidate Palin's.
A month or so ago, my brother was a cameraman for a TV network covering an auto race and Sarah Palin showed up. The TV crew and race fans went nuts trying to meet her and take her picture.
I think you already know where I stand...
First Order Adherent
Abbey of Trollhenge
Cult of Palin
Of course, I only post that in jest, but it’s not far off the truth. I’ve personally not seen another patriot of her measure, step up to the plate and go to bat for everything we hold near and dear, since 2008.
If Sarah takes stock of what just happened in this race, and decides that she’s going for it, do or die, I’ll be right there with her, backing her 110%.
You must be just another stupid c*nt conservative.
Sorry, had to act like a KOS poster....
*Needing to go shower*
I think you all know who for!
Voted. Thanks for the ping.
Until such time as we have a truly honest election process it will not matter who runs.
Totally agree. Let her talk on Fox and play king maker and rally the troops. That’s her calling.
She’s not equiped to run the country, she never was.
I like her...I like her for what she does now.
She has my vote.
No, of course she’s not Ronald Reagan, but Ronald Reagan was a national laughingstock to the very same types of people who have laughed at Palin.
Surprise, surprise. Your initial concern was that others couldn’t see through the caricature—but now I see that you believe the caricature yourself.
She’s regularly had higher approval ratings than Romney did right on through to the election. Somehow, I don’t think you were so worried about that.
Palin could run, but she needs to rebuild her image - from no fault of her own - first.
We can be pretty sure that as chief rah rah type, she’d be great. As a party leader she’d be great. As president, she has as many qualifications, and far more than currently required. Her ‘ideas’ if acted upon are pretty much agreed on by the conservative and even PDS wing to be what is needed.
So why say she is not equipped? By every metric I can think of she is. I think most just oppose her because ‘she’s Palin’ and for no logical reason. If I’m wrong, (and the million posts on FR to date never once explained how she is somehow unfit) I’ll admit it.
The whole “bad idea’ thing is meaningless without a solid argument to back it up. And this go around, the Anti-Palin wing needs a pretty good reason.
Dunno if I got another 4 years in me for this Windy.
The stupid of the modern American burns ;)
That may be her calling, but the idea that she's not equipped to run the country is just plain wrong, a stereotype from the pit of leftist hell. Why conservatives say that kind of crap is beyond me, it's so foolish.
The Anchorage writer got the savant part right but not the political.
Yep. I met and spoke with Sarah Palin. She exudes charisma. She was born with a gift for leading. She would be fearless against her opponents.
Good to be back on the same team Lake ;)
Just because you make speeches and rally crowds doesn't mean you are ready to take the most powerful seat in the world.
Two years as a governor and a couple of months as a failed VP candidate isn't the most inspiring resume.
She's had her time, it's time to move on.
Sarah would be an all around great candidate! She would take crap from NO ONE.
She wouldn’t skirt around our current administration letting Americans die in Benghazi! She would point out again and again our dire economic situation, our food and gas prices rising far beyond the means of many hard working Americans; the utter ineffectiveness of our Federal government when it tries to deal with natural disasters, health care and, on and on! She would fight like a democrat!
Yes, we have to learn to overcome the eye rolling when we tell a family member or a relative that we are Sarah 2016 All The Way! They’ve been brainwashed by the media and it is up to us to reverse the brainwashing. It won’t be easy but our country is at stake.
Ordered my Sarah 2016 bumper stickers today.
Nothing will happen soon. If we see Sarah out campaigning for candidates in 2014, then you can be certain that she will also be testing the waters.
If she senses great support, she may move to jump in after the 2014 elections.
If she does get in there will be absolutely no doubt she would conduct a campaign of unapologetic Conservatism. She would fearlessly go right at the left and statists in the GOP.
Count me in. I was going to be a coordinator for Sarah down here on the gulf coast of Texas had she made a run this year. Sarah, by far, is the nation’s best hope to recover from 4 more years of a march toward socialism under Obambi and the demonRats?
At this point I doubt it very much. The train left the station a few days ago.......
Precisely! Me too.
from Sarah’s FB page:
America, dont lose heart. This election is not an Obama mandate, nor is it a rejection of conservatism. Unanswered ads like this one running in blue collar swing states defined Romney early on, and the Obama media also piled on with the narrative that Romney would harm the middle class. (As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, its impossible to un-ring it.) Ironically, its Obamas socialist policies that will destroy Americas working class as he outsources opportunities.
Hang in there, America. Fight for what is right. Dont look to government or any politician to solve your problems. Government cant make you happy, healthy, wealthy or wise. Obama is a master at reading the right soaring words fed into his teleprompter, but actions speak louder than words. So, hold tight to 2 Corinthians 4:8 because were in for a wild ride.
We must survive. United. One nation under God.
We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9.
- Sarah Palin
She did it in Alaska as mayor and governor, and claiming she didn't, as you are here, is ignorant and petty, born of the democrat war against her. Unfortunately you actually believe that without evidence.......
She headed a sparcely populated state for two years and was a VP candidate for a couple of months.
She has since decended into reality TV and pundit.
She’s great at rallying crowds, she’s great at promoting the cause. So is Rush, so is Mark Levin.
But here on FR she’s considered to be the best policy maker, the best foreign policy expert, the best budgetor, the best leader. She has no real experience doing any of these thing for an extended period of time or really at all.
Look, I like her. I like listening to her, I like her analysis. We have just crossed the Rubicon where the takers are out numbering the makers (or at least are more willing to vote to keep it that way).
We need a leader to drag the whole country back, she’s just not the one. In fact, I’m not sure we have one right now.
Our Founders would be disappointed in you. They wanted common people to hold office. Training to be a Doctor, or an Engineer or a whole host of professions is much, much more difficult that being President.
The average Freeper would make a fine President. We would surely not sign bills that go against the Constitution. We would surround ourselves with staff that puts America's interest first.
The two Bushes, Clinton and the Marxist have been disasters with regard to limited government.
Only the left thinks you have to be some God like person to assume office. That's B.S.
Read the Constitution, the actual duties of the President aren't that difficult.
As I said earlier (or another post) we can stand for what we believe or say F’it and just embrace communism now.
A few days ago is a few days ago. What we do going forward will either matter or not. But we have to do something. Might as well swing for the fences.
