Palin/Bachman 2016. Unbeatable ticket?
Free Republic ^ | 3/26/13 | Mr.K

Posted on 03/26/2013 7:41:44 AM PDT by Mr. K

Before Newt Gingrich and the GOP try to peddle this insanely ridiculous "Reince Revolution" baloney (seriously- with a straight face he said that????) I would like to get out front with what I think would be an UN-BEATABLE ticket in 2016

Palin/Bachman

They would get ALL the GOP vote and at least half the Women's vote from Democrats.

Plus they would SPEAK THE TRUTH instead of GOP-approved pablum, and -like when Ronald Reagan spoke the truth- the PEOPLE WOULD LOVE IT

It's not too early to think about life after Obama... It's NEVER too early to think about that.

Who would vote against a ticket like this? Anyone on the GOP side? no

But it would get a lot of female Dems to give the GOP a try.

If not these two, then ???

Bachmann is for amnesty, so let’s hold her to the same standard we are willing to hold Rand Paul.

Bachman stabbed Sarah in the back in 2012. I doubt the wound has ever closed.

Is there any evidence, anywhere, that Palin has any interest whatsoever in running for office?
Nope!

No, Bachman pretty much cut her ties to Palin when she let her staff talk her into running this last go around, a scenario engineered by the GOP-E in order to dilute and divide Palin’s TEA Party support. This was all documented by a verified GOP insider called “Firelight” at C4P and reported extensively here in late 2010 and early 2011. Just go back and review all the old Palin and Bachman threads from that time period.

No chance in heck that dem women would vote for either of these two. Women rated higher negatives with Palin in 08 because of their pure hatred of conservative women.

Yes, lets take two candidates who could not close the deal before and put them together. Unbeatable.

Not.

And not because I dislike both of them, its because they could not win.

You are correct per the philosophy that if you are not in favor of 100% deportation, then you support amnesty.

this ticket is too beatable... so beatable that this ticket will never happen... and it would not get a lot of female Dems to give the GOP a try... Dems/libs do not vote that way... they do not vote for women just because they are women... they would rather vote for a womanizing lib male than a smart, strong, independent conservative female...

and come on--you really believe that nobody on the GOP side would vote against this ticket? of course, there would be those on the GOP who would vote against this ticket... either by voting for the Dem, or by siting out the election--which we have had too much of the last two presidential elections...

this is not our ticket...

It's an interesting idea, but I'm not sure that it would be successful.

There may be life after Obama, but what form will it take?

We certainly don’t want another ‘historical’ election (first woman president!) - especially if Hillary is going to be the Dem nominee. How about Susanna Martinez of NM for the top of the ticket & someone with strong foreign policy creds for her VP. Not sure who that might be, but at least one poll I saw says that Romney lost based on lack of foreign policy experience (as ridiculous as that is!).

Our side continues the women rivalry instead of going after the real enemies. LOL

Truth is, neither of these ladies have a prayer in 2016. In fact, our side will have a tough time whoever we run.

And everyone knows why.

I like both of these women, but this is pure fantasy. The American electorate will by majority vote for whatever the liberal ( ie democrat ) flavor of the day is. Right now my money is on Hillary if she stays healthy.

I think Christie may get the R nomination after the party sells its soul on social issues and he will lose badly.

As unlikely as it is, a bigger question for me is would the GOP-E even stand by and allow such a ticket? I’d expect inside sabotage before it could ever reach such a point.

I don’t see any reason to believe Palin intends to run and I think Bachmann intends to sit out the next round.

Besides, FReepers lack the moral courage to accept the minor flaws of either.

Bachmann is for amnesty, so let’s hold her to the same standard we are willing to hold Rand Paul.

Who's NOT for amnesty, these days? Here's something that has me truly appalled...

Several Tea Party Leaders Back Sen. Paul’s Amnesty Approach.

Sal Russo, who founded the Tea Party Express, applauded Paul's immigration proposal and admired his "willingness to stand up and take a principled stand" on immigration.

FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe said of Paul..."proposing citizenship for illegal aliens is a "calculated risk," but Paul's proposal is in the "framework of our principals." Kibbe said immigration is not an issue that FreedomWorks champions although his group has previously supported amnesty.

Tea Party Patriots’ leader Jenny Beth Martin said immigration isn’t one of her group’s main issues but they are "aligned" with Paul on the issue of border security.

More - including great comments - at link.

Has the Tea Party been co-opted by elites?

100% deportation is a fantasy that will never happen - and citizenship is a reward that is unacceptable. There are ideas between these two extremes....we need to accept one of these ideas and move on or we’re going to lose every election to people who support an open border and citizenship 100%.

If the Dems. are foolish enough to run Hillary the Republicans had better run Paul, Rubio, or Cruz.

Dem women are NOT all hard-core libtards. I know some Democrat women who are just misguided (and the sweetest and nicest people in the world) And they like what Sarah Palins says.

She has a ‘Reganesque’ quality we have not seen since, well.. Him.

No. Common sense.

Paul's plan is to plug the hole in the boot, then start bailing water.

It's NOT amnesty to force people already here to get legal or go home. Cutting off all benefits isn't exactly a "welcome mat".

OH yeah! I could DEF. go for Palin/Paul ticket too

But I think we NEED a woman at the top. I know it is not politicdally correct, but its probably true.

If HILLARY runs (Please God, No) then there will be trouble ahead for any GOP democrap-lite candidates like McCain and Romney.

Toxic and kind of wacky.

That ticket isn’t going to happen.

Palin went too Hollywood after the 2008 McCain-Palin defeat. She had a grand opportunity, sort of as the heir apparent, to step up in 2012, but she didn’t. She could certain draw large crowds, but she would also get a barrage of incoming from the MSM, the Dems and the GOPe. Her chances at actually winning would be slim to none.

[And I liked her — until she showed more interest in making reality shows and money than in being in the political arena.]
