Losing is losing. There is no such thing as “losing worse” than Romney. He didn’t get a consolation prize for getting close.

The moderates have had two tries in a row, and lost both times. Nobody, Palin, included, can do any worse than that. They might possibly do better, but we can’t know that unless we try something different than the same tired old moderate porridge.

I don’t think Governor Palin would agree to a debate this time where 90% of the interview is left on the cutting room floor. Try again,

So what? Let’s nominate a moderate who also can’t get enough votes to win, and then blame conservatives?

If the result is going to be the same either way, I say let’s nominate a conservative, and if they only get 20% of the vote, we can blame the moderates for a change :P

Election Day 2016 is Tuesday,Nov.8th. We have 1460 days to go. I hope Sarah is moved to run.

I hope Sarah sees this as the circumstances aligning, the opportunity there and with God's inspiration says:

Hell yes I want to win. Why do you think I support Palin, for crying out loud. I don’t need any of your Game Change fiction bullshit.

If there is going to be a woman on the 2016 ticket, I suggest looking at SUSANA MARTINEZ.
Palin had her chance already. She can do good things as a surrogate rallying enthusiasm for the Republican ticket, but I don’t want her to be on the ticket again.

So your approach is the let the leftist media determine who should run.

Can’t be scared. Have to stand up and defeat them.

2012 Romney as candidate was exactly what you advocate and he lost.

Any of the “novelty” candidates could have lost too.

I’d say about Palin that if she can do what she and the Tea Party did in 2010 in 2014 — ie gain more seats in the house and Senate — then she is viable.

Got my vote in 2008, got my vote in 2912 and will get my vote in 2916.

You see, I’m one of those bitter clingers.

Most of America put emotion before logic, fact and reason. Note most on FR for the last 6 months. All that “politics over principle BS that trashed a bunch of us is the same BS trashing Palin every time she is mentioned.

That simple.

I don’t know what it is about Mrs. Palin that causes people to act so deranged with regards to her. It’s perplexing.

Envy and she speaks common sense truth. She's real. She's one of us.

Libs have a difficulat time with real, solid, moral, ethical, common sense, 'no nonsense', and no dirt. They are the opposite of each and envy someone who has what they don't. Ole' denial and envy. Really ticks them off. .

Where was she during the campaign, dying her hair?

You do realize that Mitt's people made it very clear that they did NOT want her involved??

That said, I do not think she will be interested in running for office again.

And if she won't agree to interviews, you don't think that will be problematic?

What do you have against Ryan as a candidate?

Where are the “pray for Sarah” threads? We need those to make it legit.

Can’t we just move on already? She’s marginalized herself to the point of not being relevant for public office.

Please remind me to ask the RINO whiners what it feels like to have a 4 Inch stiletto heel shoved up their ass after Sarah gets down with them.

She can either be the Savioress of the GOP or she will lead the campaigned to finally Kill it and go the way of the Whigs.

It is their choice.

Absolutely agree. The crowds at the end of the Romney campaign were pent up conservatives trying to vent. Can you imagine running a true conservative next time? Watch Madison and Indianola on youtube. . and the 08 acceptance speech. Palin unleashed as the candidate. . . watch out.

Didn't say she wouldn't do interviews.

Didn't say I have anything against Ryan, but in retrospect Palin brought a whole lot more to the ticket than Ryan did.

You “don’t need any of your Game Change fiction ‘BS’.” but it’s out there and voters have seen it and remember it. And if you think that won’t affect some voters, you’re dreaming.

If you want to win, you have to have a candidate that can get the votes to win.

Up yours. You can’t even explain the circumstances of that experience and you just don’t like that she fought the corruption in the Republican party.

Palin for prom queen but that’s about it. She’s proven herself to be nothing but a flirt. She also has supported one RINO after another.

Paul Ryan will tear her to shreds in the debates.

I seriously doubt that.

If you have a chance go and look at the youTube videos of her debating her opponents when she ran for Governor in AK.

You will see someone with a natural gift for taking down her opponents while at the same time getting her message out to the public. The two guys running against didn't know what hit them. She was masterful.

Sarah is a natural born leader. She truly has charisma and a great understanding of Liberty.

Sarah is a true Conservative and as such the GOP-e in and out of government never had a desire to lift a finger to defend her these past four years.

She also understands how to use the net effortlessly to totally bypass the MSM and talk to the people directly. Something the GOP abandoned (talking directly to the people) after Ronaldus Magnus.

“Palin simply is not a winning candidate at the national level”

I actually laughed on reading this.

Do you know what day it is? Do you know there was just an election?

The “winning candidate”, we were assured, did not win.

I would have rather had Sarah Palin lose than Romney. We would have lost a battle but been in a better position as far as the war.

Romney lost. Your argument he was electable is proven wrong.

Two days after defeat you are making the same argument that brought defeat.

When I was in the Air Force, they used to talk about 'Command Presence.' I've seen a lot of people in my lifetime. Sarah's got it.

” She’s marginalized herself to the point of not being relevant for public office.”

I understand what you mean and that would be my biggest concern. She seems no longer to be a politician. She had only 2 years as Governor and has been out of any office for a number of years.

But — objectively it is not the case that she is irrelevant politically.

The fact of the matter is that the 2010 elections were the biggest fight-back against the Obama leftism movement that has taken place since the 2008 election.

And Sarah Palin was at the forefront of 2010.

Just go with the flow and don’t see things that aren’t there. If she does, she does. If not, then not. But as I said above, she has to do it soon if at all.

And OUTSIDE the GOP.

Yes. You get it. I agree.

Palin or Gingrich could have lost also. Maybe even by 40 - 60.

But they would have moved us forward. They would have laid out the differences between the sides and laid out the differences in philosophy between the left and the right.
