Coulter: Sarah Palin shouldn’t run for President (Mark Levin endorses Gov. Sarah Palin!!)
Politicons ^ | February 18, 2011 | Henry D'Andrea

Posted on 02/18/2011 9:39:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Ann Coulter said Sarah Palin shouldn’t run for President, and in recent weeks Coulter has been in huge favor of Gov. Chris Christie running for President. Ann Coulter believes that if Christie doesn’t run for President, Mitt Romney will win the Nomination and lose to Obama.

“I especially love her for her enemies, I’m insanely jealous of that,” Coulter said. “I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode. I think it would be a step down for her to run for president,” Coulter said, adding that she admires Palin. “She’s huge. She has enormous power. She sends out a Twitter on death panels and everyone’s talking about it.”

“I think it would be crazy for her to run for president”

Ann Coulter even received some criticism from Conservative Talk Show host Mark Levin. “When will my dear friend Ann start to address the substantive problems with Christie’s actual positions or are we going to get another year of “only Christie can win” fortune cookie logic,” said Levin.

I completely disagree with Ann Coulter, she’s underestimating Sarah Palin. While I respect and admire Coulter, she’s wrong about Palin. Sarah Palin is the only true candidate that we need for President. Republicans can not nominate another establishment Republican. We need a Tea Party candidate, such as Palin or Bachmann.

Doesn’t Coulter realize that Christie is weak on the Second Amendment?

She is an anti-birther who dates muslims and liberals. I used to like her until she showed she was a phony.

Let’s get real here. Ann is a booze soaked instigator. If the Chardonnay dried up, she would be done. Levin is a solid guy from word one. He is the best annalist of these sort of things. Plus you have the added fun of his rants against RINOS. Mark is dead on.

Let Christie finish fixing New Jersey, then he can seek the presidency if he wants.

He’s a gun-grabber and pro-Mosque at the WTC. Probably the best we can do in New Jersey, though.

We are a shallow and fickle nation.
Many people would not vote for Chris Christie based on his obesity alone.
If he undergoes weight-loss surgery, we'll know something's up.

Mark Levin read my mind. Palin is my presidential choice because I want to see Michelle stay and raise hell in the House. We need good tea party conservatives throughout government.

I usually say, Sarah Palin is more woman than most women and more man than most men but in this case...

Sarah Palin is more woman than Ann Coulter and more man than Chris Christie/Mitt Romney combined.

From your Gallup Poll link:

"Now that the 2010 midterms are over, the big question swirling around Palin is whether she will run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Given her high name recognition and broad popularity among Republicans, 80% of whom now view her favorably, she is clearly in a strong position to seek it."

Sarah (and indeed, no presidential candidate) needs to get 50% of the vote to be elected. She only needs 270 electoral votes, which she is quite likely to get, if she runs. Several Freepers have posted excellent analyses on this.

There isn't a stronger potential candidate in the Republican field, than Sarah Palin. And, I'm not just talking numbers. She has personal attributes and qualities that place her head and shoulders above the rest the potential candidates for 2012. Attributes and qualities that are absolutely essential to lead this country back from the brink of oblivion.

unfortunately, not a whole lot of voting Americans do.

Fortunately, the polling to which you linked does not pertain to "voting Americans", and uses warped sampling in several other ways.

Survey Methods

Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Nov. 4-7, 2010, with a random sample of 1,021 adults, aged 18 and older, living in the continental U.S., selected using random-digit-dial sampling. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones (for respondents with a landline telephone) and cellular phones (for respondents who are cell phone-only). Each sample includes a minimum quota of 150 cell phone-only respondents and 850 landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas among landline respondents for gender within region. Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member had the most recent birthday.

Samples are weighted by gender, age, race, education, region, and phone lines. Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2009 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older non-institutionalized population living in continental U.S. telephone households. All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting and sample design.

In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.

...........................................................

At this point after two years it’s honestly very tiring to respond to a comment like this. The best I can muster at the moment is to ask if you are serious. If Palin runs and holds her own, who can beat her? That’s correct, no one. I say this to you with all due respect.

I have a few concerns about Chris Cristie on some key issues. However, if he is in the VP slot on a Palin ticket, it could make the election very entertaining.

Well the spelling of the word is correct. However did he really mean to describe Levin in that context or did he intend something else?

When will my dear friend Ann start to address the substantive problems with Christie

Levin, like his jabbering buddy Ann, BOTH completely miss the point: CHRISTIE IS NOT RUNNING IN 2012. That's the end of the discussion. Everything else is just blah,blah,blah.

OTOH, what are the odds that Christie gets asked to be the VP on the GOP ticket? 100%. What are the chances he is the FIRST choice? 100%. But he has ruled that out also, saying there is NO chance. In fact, he says not just in 2012, but that he would not consider being ANYBODY's Vice President.

Which makes sense to me. Real leaders don't want to be second banana. So, in short, this is much ado about nothing.

Don't know how, but Huckabee lost a ton a weight and then ran for presidency.

I’m not sure Levin said that. It’s not in quotes. I think the author of this piece said that. But I can’t tell because the link doesn’t work. It’s unclear that Levin endorsed anyone. The only quote that is clearly attributed to him is the one about Ann and Christie.

I would hope Sarah`s first choice might be West? But you could be right, perhaps she will ask Cris C?

Well, it doesn't matter, because Christie is staying right here in NJ, hopefully serving as NJ Governor for another 7 years.

He's only 48, and hasn't even finished one term as governor. That hardly qualifies someone for the presidency. He says he's not ready yet, and he is sufficiently challenged by his current job.

So, whoever wins the GOP nod will have to look elsewhere for a VP candidate. Palin would need someone else anyway--she needs someone with MORE experience than her.

I don’t even think she’s going to win the nomination, but time will tell. For a while I was hoping she wasn’t going to run, but lately, it’s starting to look like she definitely is running.

What’s interesting about Ann’s analysis is that she was in Romney’s corner last time in 2007 and 2008. Now she’s completely dismissing him as a loser.

It is very early in the 2012 Prez run. The fact that she shows up at all is a good indication that she has a shot at it.

The statement she released addressing the unions is very, very good, Presidential in many ways, without sacrificing the main point. (I am a former union member and her statement will resonate with many current union members.)

She is going to surprise a lot of people.

We won’t know that until she runs. I find it amusing getting upset that she’d even enter the race. She will make her own destiny and she is the only one with the positions and ability to fight back. And let us not forget the attacks will not be exclusive to Palin. They would be waiting for any challenger. They have not landed a knockout and they know it even with all the demonizations and slander. Palin will not back down and I look forward to her opening a lot of people’s eyes during the campaign.

Sarah Palin has quite a lot of experience,Mayor, City Councilor, Chairman of Alaska oil and gas conservation authority and Governor..Not to mention a business woman that has actually met a payroll etc. I may have missed a few

That`s just media spin that she is inexperienced. Now Huck on the other hand, 2 term Gov of a small state, he may need someone to help him out :)

I think if Palin or anyone else wants to run, they should run.

That is what we have campaigns, debates, and primaries for.

Let them show their stuff and then let the people decide.

We might all be surprised.

City council and Mayor of a town with a population of about 5,000. Yeah, it’s experience. Almost as much experience as this guy, who serves my town:

http://www.parkerspace.org/

And yeah, she almost completed a whole term as Governor.

It’s a mighty thin resume. I would think that if people turn on Obama, they’ll be looking for someone with solid experience, not another experiment.

If you think my nickname has anything to do with Huckabee, you are incorrect. I am not a Huckabee supporter. I'm a fan of Mark Twain.

That said, Palin's resume doesn't come anywhere near Huckabee's.

You are right, that`s exactly what I thought. Am also a fan of Mark Twain. I bet I am not the first here to make that mistake.

Mind you when you say Huck resume trumps Palin, it makes one wonder. And it does not sound like you are her biggest supporter?

You would be in the minority on this board that feels that way, this much I do know.

The thing is to me, looks like they are both running, so people will be going through their records. The MSM will prop up Huck, until he actually won the nomination, then they would drop him like a rock just like they did with McCain.

Could get very nasty in the primary...Huck has some baggage, really never governed as a Conservative, you have pardons, weight gain, it will be nasty...This for sure from outside groups, not the actual candidates.

I'm not.

I'm used to being in the minority, on this board and elsewhere---check my tagline. It doesn't bother me at all.

So far, out of those who are most likely running, I like Mitch Daniels the best, which surely means he has no chance.

Most likely, by the time the primaries hit NJ, I won't like any of the remaining choices. If that happens, I'll stay home, and just mindlessly vote the ticket in the general.

I may disagree w/ Ann, but still love her.

“I especially love her for her enemies, I’m insanely jealous of that,” Coulter said. “I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode. I think it would be a step down for her to run for president,” Coulter said, adding that she admires Palin. “She’s huge. She has enormous power. She sends out a Twitter on death panels and everyone’s talking about it.”

She is correct on that point. Even Sarah said she doesn't "need" a title to help save America and incorporate change (look at what she has accomplished already).

With that being said, I WANT Sarah to run, but that is up to her. Sarah said if no one else steps in, she will.
