I just voted for Sarah Palin, but she's badly losing at the moment.

Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are both doing well.

Well, she hasn't been in elected office for three and a half years, and she was only governor for two and a half years.

I like what Sarah Palin has to say, but a presidential candidate needs a thicker national-level resume than that. I really wish she were to run for Senate, or hold any kind of formal position other than "self-employed book-writer and king-maker".

Sarah is low because people don’t believe she would run. That video she put out on the 4th of July 2012 was a Candidate for President video. I was sending her so much money. Money I needed more than she did. She pulled out at the last moment. I love what she says but I don’t trust her to be an actual candidate. She’s a tease.

Palin in the Senate would not fall in with the quilting bee mentality of the female US Senators. The hags would probably hate her being there. Fine by me, but I don't know if she'd like being cooped up there.

What would be great is for her to be Secretary of Energy in the Cruz/Paul cabinet.

I voted for Cruz. As in the past, the Paulanistas are out in force to vote for their latest man.

Same here, but fair warning with both these men here on FR -

Some still claim Cruz is not eligible and they are vocal about it.

There are a few loudmouths here who hate Perry with a passion over his stance on immigration and they spam every thread with his name in the title.

If the last two election cycles are any indication of what to expect in a couple of years conservatives (counting FReepers) will eat their own (again) providing a clear path for the progressive (and media) RINO to take the lead.

Drudge Report editor Joe Curl just endorsed Jebbie on his Twitter feed:

Joseph Curl @josephcurl 8h
The Republican Party hasn’t won a presidential election without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket since 1928. So, please, @JebBush, run in 2016!

“Well stated!
I agree.”

Barky was pilloried for having only been a Senator for 4 years prior to running in ‘08.

“I was sending her so much money. Money I needed more than she did. She pulled out at the last moment. I love what she says but I don’t trust her to be an actual candidate. She’s a tease.”

Yeah, I truly do not know what her game is and I believe she truly failed a lot of people with that......stunt. That’s all I can call it because it certainly wasn’t a campaign.

“Some still claim Cruz is not eligible and they are vocal about it.”

I know but now, honestly, I don’t know what weighs now. If elected what controlling legal authority would refuse to seat him at this point?

Ted Cruz isn’t a Natural Born citizen.

See Joseph Farah for details.

I suppose that makes me a Rand Paul voter.

Cruz is great and should remain a Senator.

Once Sheriff Arpaio blows the lid off Obamatollah’s ID fraud and related crimes, I suspect following the Constitutional requirements for President might come back into fashion.

That will be a hotly debated issue, if he runs.

I firmly believe Ted Cruz is a natural born citizen. However I also believe we should run Sarah Palin on the ticket. I believe she should be president, though Cruz would be a fine selection as well.

Palin / Cruz in my book.

A lot of us do things we don't like for the good of the country. In 2008 I saw Palin as the next Reagan. Today I know that she stands for solid conservatism, but beyond that I have no idea what the deal is with her.

It was actually July of 2011 but I fell for the same tease. I donated money to her PAC that I wish I had back. I truly thought she was running and when she pulled out in October of 2011 (the same day that Steve Jobs died), I felt cheated and betrayed.

She would make a great candidate but she needs to earn my trust back. I also don't think anything she has done in the past 2 1/2 years has helped her.

Why was LtCol. Allen West left out?..
if given a chance; I'd vote, CRUZ/WEST, CRUZ/PALIN, PALIN/WEST
WEST/PALIN or PAUL/WEST as last resort.

Paul is a GOPe supporting amnesty pusher!!

“There is no way Ted Cruz could win a general election”

I’d rather lose with a Ted Cruz than another McCain or Romney. And, and, I’m one of those “hold your nose and vote for the moderate because only he can win the national vote” guys from the last two election cycles. We tried nominating the “nice, electable” fellow the last two times and we got creamed. Neither time could they articulate a coherent philosophy or reason for anyone to change their vote for them. Is freaking Mike Huckabee going to change a lot of hearts and minds? No, just....no.

Paul is too busy now making excuses for Obamacare and Palin is......well..........Palin. Cruz or worst case Perry.

I am 100% for Palin.

That said, I agree with the posters on here, who have criticized Palin for having left them hanging.

I want Palin more than anyone else, but if she decides to run this time, she has some work to do, to win back those she left sitting last time.

I believe she will run. I believe she will win those people back, and I believe she will win.

But she has to want it, bigtime, and she needs to motivate those on our side who were burned by her last time. Well that is too strong of language. But disappointed anyway.

To this day, I remember the moment I heard she would not run. It was an enormous disappointment.

I am as I said 100% on Sarah’s side. But Sarah you’ve got a tiny bit of base-building to do this time.

Just saying. Be aware of that, if you read this and if you decide this is the year.

Thanks for the date correction. I feel exactly as you do. She had some serious brand trouble, and she was not honest with all of us supporters. I would have liked to see her attempt a press covered event where she spelled out to low info Americans the pointed coverage she got, and made it perhaps funny about never having said she saw Russia from her house, etc. I would have wanted to see her turn the press and show them up as fools, like they did her. If she had done so, I’d have really been sure she could handle the press while president. I feel as though, with enough time, I could have written that speech.

Remember, people. If (as I believe) Obama was born in an unwed mother’s home in Vancouver, the reason he wasn’t born an American is because his mother was too young to confer citizenship. If she had been 21 he would not have had citizenship issues his whole life.
