Governor Palin goes On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.
It was the only way to be sure.
It was the only way to be sure.
I like Sarah, but she’s wearing thin. ANYONE can sit on the sidelines and snipe. If this is all she is going to do, then she needs to focus more on cooking moose stew and leave the politics to those with thicker skin.
Right now, she only appears to be a tease. She won’t run for any office, but she’ll sit on the sidelines and snipe at those actually playing the game. Whether any of us like him or not zero went out, campaigned, got his union thugs and others behind him and won.
Gov. Palin has . . . . . . . . ??
ANYONE can sit on the sidelines and snipe
You mean like we do here on Free Republic?
You mean sniping at Sarah Palin for her viewpoints which Greta felt were good enough to put on TV?
Did you watch the Video? and did you find anything there you disagree with? I didn’t.
I only wish Greta had asked about the Marine being held in Mexico.
Pretty much everything on this Site is sitting on the sidelines and sniping.
Why should she run for anything, the Media would jump all over her with both feet. A little like you just did with one.
Governor Palin has the entire Republican establishment against her.
She would get about 25% of the popular vote. THe GOP establishment would convince the other 75% that she is the spawn of Satan.
I think she did....but I could be wrong. The grey cells are dwindling:o(

Also apparently some so called conservatives think that discussion has no purpose or calling attention to issues is just sitting on the sidelines.
I saw this reported on my little ole TV station here in Kansas.
Sarah has that LITTLE impact/sarc
Sarah Palin: The most Important Irrelevant Figure in America today.
Palin had a great 2012, she gave us Ted Cruz and our only Senate seat pickup with Deb Fischer, and some congressional influence, and she refused to endorse Romney.
I don't know anyone who did more, or better, and we will always be grateful for what she did in 2010.
Amen to every word you said!
Nonsense, Palin would have defeated Obama in 2008 or 2012 as top of the ticket.
Romney was a party destroying disaster in 2012, and that should have been clear from his dismal failure as a governor who left office with 34% approval, and then entering 2008 as the self funding, establishment, 800 pound gorilla with a massive organization and the big donors, who then lost to two unfunded mediocrities, with no organizations or staffs.
Between the previous interview in which she forcefully expressed about how we’ve already gone ‘over’ the fiscal cliff and are in freefall awaiting the thud to the ground, and her recent Facebook posting about the Newtown killings, which captured the situation and the current reality far more expressively accurate than any of the hundreds of useless blatherings that I’ve seen and heard... she’s becoming one of the only voices left in America that seems to genuinely offer all-out, unadultered common sense.
She almost seems like a lone throwback to America’s past, when the country was great, and sheer common sense used to rule the day. Mind-boggling how it has become such a rarity in these insane, deviant times.
She already the head of the TEAse party. Wrote a book and cheered for her daughter on dancing with the stars. Isn’t that enough?
. . helped many conservatives be elected to Congress and other offices. . . given her time to attend conservative rallies . . . taken countless abuses and bounced back in the face of it . . . looking like a million bucks to boot.
No. I’ll tell you who’s wearing thin. It’s those who join in with the liberal/leftist chorus of abuse against a fine, Christian woman because they desparately want “Katie” to “like” them and not think they’re stupid. NEWS FLASH! “Katie” does not like them and most likely secretly thinks they’re stupid rednecks. “Katie’s” payday’s coming someday. Watch and see.

Soon the Libs and PDS trolls will pine for the day when they could simply dismiss her.
You Hit that out of the Ball Park!
Mind if I use it from now on?
It's not us Conservatives who need to change and moderate. It's THEM, the GOP-E and their little cheerleaders here on F.R.
Why don't THEY suck it up and compromise their beliefs for a change? (maybe because they truly believe in what the Democrats do, except they can do it better?)
Sarah has saved a Mint by living in their heads rent free!
Three cheers for Greta van Susteren, as well. She’s about the only only one left on Fox who always does the right thing—including these interviews with Sarah.
Thank G-d for Sarah.
Thank G-d for Sarah!
Greta is Friends with the Palins.
She is the only one on that damn network who still has some sense.
We haven't given' up yet!
I would vote for Palin if she ran. But you need to quit fooling yourself. The GOP leadership will do everything in their power to prevent Palin from being the nominee. And as popular as she is, we need the ENTIRE GOP working together to defeat the Dems.
I agree with you totally. This is really different than what you are doing.
Why is everyone so AFRAID of being a Conservative? My employees are 99.999% LibTards; and these are ‘Cream of The Crop’ LibTards that actually give a chit about our company as a whole and show up for work on time - WITHOUT a Union! Imagine that; a LibTard who UNDERSTANDS who signs their paycheck!
And why do I hire them? Well, for starters, I’m still STUCK with some of them from previous management, but THIS is where I live and this is WHAT I have to work with. I WILL win this battle, ONE PERSON AT A TIME. I WILL convert these idiots...to my dying breath.
Don’t bet against me. And you can thank me later for saving Our Republic. It’s a dirty job, but SOMEONE has to do it! :)
With Women like you and Sarah we will persevere.
bUt waHt aboot sara Being a quniTingquiterwhoquits?!!?--Says the PDS Troll.
I will simply say this. If Sarah was as unimportant as they make her out to be. They wouldn't be talking about her.
You are judged by the quality of your enemies and Sarah has made all the right ones on both the Left and the Right.
My heart be still! That Todd is such a hunk! Wow.
How often do you get on national TV to express your opinions?
I was waiting for your comment, thanks for playing.
First, I am NOT a national figure who has been a governor of a state and a candidate for VP. So, I don't have access to a microphone or a camera so that I can tell America what it already knows.
Gov. Palin has had 4 years to put her finger in the air and see which way the wind is blowing. She has drawn huge crowds at her various appearances that should be an indication of her popularity and how much support she would have for pretty much ANY elected office she chose to pursue.
Instead, she has allowed the momentum and the speculation to build and wane as she plays whatever game she is playing. We desperately wanted, needed and expected her to throw he hat in the ring for POTUS this last time around and, instead, she played coy until the time had past for her to enter the race.
As much as I love and support her, if she isn't gonna play, she needs to get off the field.
Yes, it is. I am NOT a national figure, I have never been the governor of any state nor have I ever been a candidate for VP.
Sarah has been and is all of those things. Because of her political past, her opinion carries (at least) 20 times more weight than mine. I don't have access to a camera and a microphone, I'm just one more guy expressing his opinion on FR.
Well, maybe I WAS a bit hasty . . . . .
NSS! Then why did you state "anyone"? Sorry, but it makes you look stupid. Words have meanings.
I’d go for some balance in the Palin approach at the moment.
First off the plus: Palin has a national name, which has endured one VP run and a near run last time.
Now with the minus: Palin’s near run last time, derailed the GOP.
2016 is Palin’s year. If she does not run next time, then she’s a commenter.
I’ll voter for her enthusiastically. If she runs.
If she doesn’t, she should stop playing.
(ok that’s probably a bit frustrated, but so be it.)
Isn't that SPE-shul! America had a crappy 2012 and will have a crappy 2013, 2014 . . . Had she put her money where her mouth is and jumped into the ring, we would have had a candidate far more viable than any of the others the 'Pubbies put up. If she was waiting for Christmas, time's up and it's too late for her to do anything.
As for Ted Cruz, Ted Cruz gave us Ted Cruz. Sarah's endorsement didn't do as much to get him elected as his record and his own campiagn did, not to mention David Dewhurst's abominable campaign.
Palin chose to sit out the last election. Probably because of the age of her daughters.
They will be grown by 2016.
That is the year that matters. If she runs in 2016, she will have my, and a whole lot of FReepers enthusiastic support. Rock solid.
If however she holds out again, I believe she is done.
Up to her. I seriously hope she stands up this time.
America needs big help.
Sarah is a national figure and a solid conservative. That's why she ended up on Greta's show. But, at the end of the day, Sarah's opinions are no better and no worse than many of the people here on FR. We can ALL NUKE Obama with our opinions, but we don't all have her reputation as a former governor and VP candidate.
I would also note that being on TV isn't all it's cracked up to be. Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Ellen DeGeneris, Bill Maher, Brian Williams, Katie Couric, Nancy Pelousy, Lindsey Graham, etc., etc., etc., are also on TV.
I meant to include a response to this in my previous post. I don't know how to break this to you, but I am not the DBM. They have been after Sarah since she first appeared as McVain's VP and continue to go after her in spite of the fact that she does not hold nor is she running for any political office. And, yet, when she makes a personal appearance, she draws larger crowds that Benghazi Barry can attract, so it begs the question - would she run for public office to get the Media's approval, or the voters??
“I would vote for Palin if she ran. But you need to quit fooling yourself. The GOP leadership will do everything in their power to prevent Palin from being the nominee”
Maybe she won’t -be- the “Republican” nominee in 2016... ;)
(as in... the nominee of a party in its last throes of death... by then....)
(and before you jump on me for saying as much, I challenge anyone reading this to tell me what the D.C. Repbublicans have done in the past few months to indicate otherwise?)
It is crystal clear where you are coming from, the stop conservatism branch of the GOP.
You talk about Palin with such a vile and hateful, and dishonest tongue, and pretend that you support her, what a fake.
While Romney and you guys were shutting her out of the convention and headlining Chris Christie, Palin gave us our only Senate seat pick-up in 2012 with Deb Fischer in Nebraska, and no one disputes that, they just ignore that stunner of a victory, isn’t that “special”?
Palin also gave us Ted Cruz in Texas, at least according to Cruz, isn’t that “special”?
“”Ted Cruz says Sarah Palins endorsement was game-changing in his Senate win””
“the Texas Republican Senate nominee called Palins endorsement game-changing.
If you look at the senate races across the country this cycle and last cycle, Governor Palin has had a game changing impact one after the other, explained Cruz.
Palin endorsed Cruz, a Tea Party favorite who shares her philosophy of liberty and limited government, just days before a wide-open May 29 primary, helping to propel Cruz into a strong second place showing. The Cruz surge provided momentum for his runoff battle with Dewhurst.
Fighters like Ted Cruz can lead the charge for us, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said in July when she came to Texas to campaign with Cruz, calling him a a proven, common-sense constitutional conservative.
The Tea Party favorite admitted that many have referred to his victory as improbable. He told Allen that the reason why Palins endorsement has had such an enormous impact is because voters consider her a true barometer of conservatism.
In a Republican primary, everyone claims to be conservative and voters are pretty cynical. They are tired of these candidates that sounds great on the stump. They say they are going to cut spending, they get into the office and they become spineless jellyfish, Cruz said. I think conservatives trust Sarah Palin that if she says this guy is a conservative, that he is a real deal.
But reading the comments on this thread cause me to recognize a bit of a parallel between Palin and Winston Churchill.
It's my recollection that Churchill was responsible for saving some of the big guns taken from British ships that were de-commissioned as part of the treaties signed at the end of World War I. This was just a small item, but it revealed Churchill to be a visionary who could see that these guns would be needed again, sooner rather than later.
Great Britain wasn't ready for Churchill during the ascendancy of nazism in Germany prior to World War II.
They weren't ready for Churchill when Hitler took Czechoslovakia.
They weren't ready for Churchill when Hitler invaded Poland.
They weren't ready for Churchill when Hitler invaded Norway.
Finally, when Hitler invaded France, the people of Great Britain were ready for Churchill.
When the U.S. unemployment rate hits 19%, Americans will be ready for Palin.
When the dollar sinks to the point that an ounce of gold is worth $15,000, Americans will be ready for Palin.
When dozens of American cities have become Detroit, Americans will be ready for Palin.
When the U.S. debt, not counting Social Security and Medicare, becomes $33 billion, Americans will be ready for Palin.
Until that time, Americans will just have to be content to hear Palin tell them the truth and point out when they are pursuing mis-guided policies.
Answer: Its a dirty job, but SOMEONE has to do it!
That is just it. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone has an... rectum, too. Who cares, we all got one. But you are not doing anything to rectify, he he, that was close, the problem. You are merely complaining. Which third you want to be in, the one that does something, the one that watches, or the one that wonders what happened.
If you were Jesus Christ with the media against you , would be crucified. In fact he was.
Which one of you “side-line-sitters” would take the crap she and her family endured from all sides? I’d venture to guess not a one.
IF she is sooooo un-important, then pay no attention. I’d back her any time.
Sorry if Sarah is not 100% enough for you! We will try and put up someone else who is just as good as her. They grow on trees don’tcha just know.
Yeah we should throw Sarah, Marco, Paul Ryan and everyone else under the GOP RINO bus. And then dive under it oursevles....S`
Sorry you 100%ers are not happy today.....TS
The only thing harder than that is converting customers. That’s what I do.Tricky business at best.
Why? So someone like Romney can come and take her place. He ran such a successful campaign you know.
The GOP is in its death throws Sarah see this. She also knows that they would never back her and any true conservative. The Party is rotten to the core and needs to be done away with.
The fact of the matter is that no Conservative will get a head unless we take over the Smaller elections first. State and Local, they decide who goes to the top. That is why Supporting those Tea Party candidates is so important.
Not just for getting Sarah the nomination, I don't think she even wants it for herself. She just wants a Conservative to run, win and act out on our platform.
That is true leadership, leading from the front.
That is what seprates her from McCain, Mitt and Jeb Bush who want the GOP nomination because it's "Their turn"
Go Sarah! Go Tea Party!
However, may I interject and say that to the typical low information Ubama voter all of that is meaningless.
As long as EBT is running, ubama will have a very large and supporting base.
But once those things you describe hits maybe, just maybe the people with some sense will come around to our side.
Then they will turn to us and Sarah for help (whom they previously mocked). Sarah speaks the truth and the truth will always triumph in the end.
But it because much harder when those V2 Rockets bring Candy and Goodies from your "wicked" neighbors to you instead of High Explosive.
America will need Palin (and conservatism in general) not during times of peace and plenty when you can blow billions of dollars on social programs. But when we are at our most dire straights. Ubama has his collation and we have ours.
