“She hadnt yet made her decision about running, but she would not at that time support Cain. I cant see how that would have changed for Mr. Gaffe-tastic.”
Yea, bad wording on my part. When I said that “her votes are with Cain”, I used the plural because I meant the word “voters” - which does seem to be the case. I am aware that she, herself, is still holding her cards.
I don’t see her going Indy, but if she did, she’d definitely beat the GOP jerk and O’Bunghole. In a three-way race she would only need a plurality of the votes in enough electoral college states, and she’d have an easier time doing that than running aginst O’Bummer in a two-way race.
Fer chrissakes give it a rest.
Cain is turning out to be so gaffe-prone, he’s making Biden look like a luminary.
What I was saying is that many people just didn’t stay focused on Sarah. That’s just how people are. I’’ve always supported Sarah.
BTW, only people with “orientation” problems call other people squirrels.
I’m a Palin voter. I will never back Cain.
Cain's interview last week with Beck sealed it for me at this pt time. Thanks
“Im a Palin voter. I will never back Cain.”
That’s ok, everyone’s entitled to a preference. The other 80% are with Cain, so he’s still in good shape.
The commonly accepted wisdom is that a Palin independent run would be a repeat of Ross Perot.
That may not be true.
Perot was right, but generated nowhere the enthusiasm Palin has, nor were the problems anywhere near as obvious then as now.
Donald Trump was right. Just look at the enthusiasm he generated virtually overnight. The GOP is in some significant ways not right, in fact they almost humorously illustrate the line “you’re doing it wrong”.
RINOs sadly seem determined to remain out to lunch, with open borders and zero principles.
And the dems are just out to lunch.
Actually, Palin could possibly pull it off, perhaps ejecting the stupid party in the process.
Wonder if that’s what this has been about?
You need to listen to Cain perhaps and let her go do her thing..I knew all along she would not run. The family came first and should, as have given drama that never ends with her celebritydom ...not presidential.
For those under the influence, perhaps.
WND tends to get the news wrong more than they get it right and this is no exception. There is no way she’ll run as an Independent. She is perfectly content doing what she’s doing and saying anything she wants without handlers telling her what she can say or not say
“I can only see her doing that if she was sure she could beat both Obama and Romney.”
I can only see her do this IF she truly believed that she was ready to leave the GOP because it could not be salvaged. Meaning if the “establishment” GOP gets one of their wishy washy “moderates” (translate as “liberal”) to win the GOP nod and threaten marginalizing the conservative base.
And then the headline acts like she said something she never said.
WND is a couple of rungs below the defunct News of the World.
After reading the first 65 posts, I have to disagree with most. Assuming that Romney gets the nomination and Obama stays in the race, Palin would have an excellent chance of winning as an independent. Neither Obama nor Romney inspires while Palin does inspire. I’m not saying that she would run as an independent, only that she would be a force to be reckoned with if she did. Anyone listen to her MO speech this weekend? Palin hasn’t been diminished in the least.
Uh-huh. Right. At least.
< giggling at you >
And I'm Santy Clawz. LMAO!!!
You got a nice plug in that “Tea Party Tribune” article. It’s nationally syndicated. You’re famous now. Way too cool.
I do believe she simply dragged this out so we would have a two Moderates race as the likely GOP nomination. Those who control the GOP policies and purse strings are not going to allow an outsider to win the nomination. But they will use a decoy.
Sarah like a few others in the past few elections has been nothing more than a diversion ploy so a liberal like McCain can win like when we saw Thompson bow out in 2008. This time around it's Romney or Perry. Both with far less than desirable conservative traits which warms the liberal hearts of the controlling Rockefeller GOP.
