Too bad we can no longer afford the Socialists. It was fun while it lasted.
Palin will have to answer the “quitting” meme. That I have never denied, but Romney will also have to justify Romneycare and his other flip-flops, Huckabee why he granted clemency to Clemmons and others, and Gingrich of why he endorsed Dede Scozzafava and favors legislation on climate change.
There is NOT one politician who has some baggage. Let’s see how well each of them do.
I am not a Palin Posse, you are. Since when is asking a candidate where they stand on an issue something wrong or crazy?
Don’t you think if this question is answered it might help rather than hurt her?
People do change their minds on issues.
The makeup of the Congress does not make her better than Reagan. Many of those seats will be up for grabs again in 2012. Who keeps their seat will depend upon their performance.
In a word: NO several times over.
She is Sarah Palin, she is unto herself.
The sooner the better we start to recognize that fact.
Once she's a candidate, all issues will have to be addressed. Right now, all former positions are fodder for haters, pdsers and critics, since she has not addressed them.
Flame bait - rave on!
No way Jose.
Last I checked, former Governor Sarah Palin is a NYT best-selling author, highly paid speaker, Fox News contributor and endorser/fundraiser for conservative candidates, as well as a wife & mother/grandmother. What office is she currently a candidate for, pray tell?
Ahh, another “quitter mitton” that ignores reality...
Do the math:
Frivolous ethics charges = $500k PERSONAL legal fees
Personal income = $125k
Do the math
Iman obama’s surrogates’ plan was to continue filing ethics charges an eventually banbkrupt Sarah’s family.
The quitter line is old & dead.
Get with the program, Mittons!
Make up your mind. One minute she is running and when the mood strikes you she isn’t.
Look, she may indeed be the best potential candidate. But since she is going to run, there is no reason not to put questions to rest in advance.
There is no question that she has done all you say. But if you demand that everyone back her or else, then set about putting their doubts to rest with facts.
Merely insulting people who are asking a legitimate question isn’t an answer.
Maybe Palin has changed her mind on LOST. It would be nice to know.
Please go back to my first post in 2006 and show me where I ever “insisted” that anyone vote for any candidate. I’ll wait...
Not in a million years.
Reagan was a Republican from 1962 until his death in 2004, a 42year span. That is longer then he was a Democrat --- 1932 to the 1962: 30yrs. Reagan was about to switch to the GOP in 1960 to support VP Nixon for President over JFK, but Nixon thought a high profile Democrat endorsement was better then a newly minted Pubbie. Truth is, Reagan was a DINO starting with his early support for Eisenhower in 1952 and later in 1956. Reagan's conservatism took root when he went across America making speeches for GE and traditional service clubs in the 50`s and 60's, promoting freedom through lower taxes, limited govt and American exceptionalism.
Btw, I like Palin but she is NO Ronald Reagan.
No. She will be Sarah Palin. She has the potential of being a great President, IMO, but she will not be Ronald Reagan.
To draw the comparison diminishes both Palin and Reagan, IMHO.
Don’t change the subject. You demand it by attacking people who ask legitimate questions. If I am going to throw my support 100% behind a candidate, I just want to make sure that they believe in our sovereignty 1st.
Not a whole lot to ask for, is it?
This is one question that could be easily answered in a short amount of time. I do know people change their minds and could forget it if she says she no longer supports LOST.
I can wait until she decides to enter the race. I am sure she will be asked the question sometime during a campaign. If she doesn’t enter, then it won’t matter.
“In two, hell no.”
You’re right P’ant......Palin won’t sign an amnesty bill for illegal aliens like Reagan did.
You’ve already thrown your support 100% behind a candidate: Barack Obama, by default.
In a word: Yes.
