Palin: Not too late to enter GOP presidential race
KGAN-TV / The Associated Press ^ | December 19, 2011

Posted on 12/19/2011 1:25:12 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Sarah Palin says it's not too late for someone to jump into the Republican presidential race.

Asked by Fox Business Network about the likelihood that she'd become a candidate, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said it's not too late for "folks" to jump in. Said Palin: "Who knows what will happen in the future."(continued)

What are you smoking? With the sad lot of damaged goods on the right, anything is possible at this point.

No Sarah - don’t do it. For the sake of yourself and your family don’t get sucked into the political firestorm again. Please don’t!

As you know, I haven’t been very optimistic that Palin had much of a chance. But I could see this: she could come in right after Ron Paul wins IA, the anti-Romney backlash (because that’s what a Paul win would spark) would occur, and while Mitt would win NH, Palin could win SC and FL. At that point, I could see a path to the nomination from her-—in essence, by passing the three months of hit-piece media. Course, that wouldn’t stop them from starting up on her again.

The current field is as execrable as 2008. When she gets in, she has my support... until then or until an actual viable Conservative enters, it is “None of the Above.”

Say what you will. It would be the wrong thing for Sarah and her family. Of course, it is their choice but I would hate to see the hurt they would have to endure again. And another loss. She would not win and I would likely vote for her. The only reason I voted for McCain was because of Sarah Palin but I pray to God that Sarah will have better sense than to put her family through the mess again. Anyone that cares about them should feel the same way.

The field in 2008 was indeed execrable, and in my wildest dreams I never thought it could get worse than that. It has.

I’ll tell you what I find interesting....

This entire story is predicated on Eric Bolling issuing a Tweet on what Palin said in an interview he taped with her earlier today. Not much substance to go on, yet in our world here on FR, the replies are plentiful.

Kind of makes me think the support for the declared candidates is extremely shallow and many are extremely disappointed with the current group.

Maybe a late entrant (even other than Palin) could actually succeed this election season.

get serious

There are deadlines for getting your name on ballots. THere are deadlines for getting your ads on the air and to the printing presses. It takes time to build an organization. It takes time to raise money.

At this point, not only would it be impossible for an unknown person to jump in, it would be impossible for someone as well known as sarah palin to jump in.

The alaska broad has jumped the shark multiple times already, and now she just did it again. I’d say she’s about to kick off another reality show or something...and you are dumb enough to fall for it.

let’s put it this way.. if they all dropped out but Ron Paul and Palin decided to jump in against him yes I’d vote Palin because he’s a wackjob... but they aren’t and she doesn’t deserve to be considered since there are plenty of decent Conservative candidates who have worked their butts off still in the race.. she’s not entitled to anything at this point

“Too late, there are filing deadlines.”

What does that mean “exactly”? I think it means to be ON the ballot. Doesn't mean you can't run as a write in. And like Rush said, Palin is only 5 letters. (Palin is easier to spell than Murkowsky)

Sarah waits until the last minute, runs a write in campaign in the states she's missed the deadline and sign up for the rest. She said she would run an unconventional campaign didn't she? Do I think this is the strategy? Who knows, anything is possible. Unlikely, yes. We can dream.

They’re taking hits because they’re running for President. Sarah’s been taking hits since before 2008. She’s more than earned it. And who says ‘a lot of work’ automatically justifies a person to run or to win? That’s your premise.

So you would fault her for finding a way to the top without all of the mudslinging and mischief that the last few monthes have provided? I see it as more confirmation that she is much smarter than the rest of the field by far.

Plus, if you read her apparent “words,” she’s not necessarily referring to herself. She could have in mind someone (say, Paul Ryan, for the heck of it), whom could jump in at the last minute, and she’d immediately back and go all-out campaigning for. It could turn the whole primary on its head.

Palin said in October that she wouldn't seek the GOP nomination.

She said she could be more effective helping others get elected.

She also said she would get in if she didn't think she could support any of the other candidates.(or something to that effect.)

Well, at least one of the declared candidates is having these problems.....

Have you forgotten that Palin has been the most outspoken figure on the political right since Zero's election? Have you forgotten how hard she worked to get Tea-publicans elected during the 2010 midterms? And have you forgotten the price she and her family have paid for her willingness to stand up for conservatism and American First Principles?

Don't tell me that she "hasn't worked for it". If she decides to step into this race, I will gladly give her my support.

What some called as teasing, she then says she is not running. What some are calling as teasing, she is not ready to endorse. What some will call as teasing, others would call here we go again! I was a big Palin supporter, but less so now. Don't know if my support can withstand more of the same.

That one is a PDSer.

Others on other threads are calling her an “attention & political whore.” Goes with their “feelings” of male superiority and their pitiful personal lives.

Perhaps people could spend their time on people who are running. Palin hasn’t a prayer. Had she jumped in and worked her way to the top, she might be on top.

She won’t get the nomination by doing nothing and shopping reality shows on the side.

Makes her seem an opportunist.

Pardon my French, but Screw the Damn Filings.

If it going to be a deadlock, and go to the Convention, someone throw her name in @ the Deadlocked Convention and have her address the crowd.

It would be their last chance at redemption before the Republic Implodes....

Again I am tired of voting of the evil of two lessers.

I can hold my nose for Newt, but that is about it. If it ain't Newt, I write in Sarah.

Sarah, stop teasing us.

You know what they call girls like you in high school Sarah? D*^k Teasers!

Now go do what you are best suited for now, support the conservative you want to win, or write another book or something.

Whatever you do, Please, Please, Quit rubbing my leg with your hand while whispering sweet political things in my ear.

So just stop, stop, STOP ALREADY, Please?

I am too weak to take it any longer!
