I watched the entire interview, never heard her say she was open to VP. Do not know how I could have missed that part

Trump? Forget it. She is no longer the smartest woman in the world, next to Hillary, of course.

But seriously, what is Palin using for brains?

Give me a friggin break--no real life "conservative" would ever praise someone threatening to run third party and help reelect Obama.

Palin has just proven herself to be a twit.

The fact that she has a solidly conservative record in office...

________________________________________

Wasilla long term debt when palin took office - $1.2 million.

Wasilla long term debt when palin left office - $23 million.

As governor, palin imposed a windfall profits tax on oil companies (over and above existing taxes and royalty schemes). The net was loss of oil company exploration in the state.

As governor, palin committed $500 million (yes, half a billion) to a corporation to support its efforts to get a pipeline going. Nothing has happened yet and the taxpayers' money is, at this point, lost.

Was that the "solidly conservative record" you wrote about?

Yeah such a twit that she was picked for VP over all other potential running mates. Such a twit that she brings out record crowds when she speaks. Such a twit that if she changed her mind the whole presidential race would suffer a tsunami. PDS. For some it's a permanent problem.

Excuse me, if anyone else would praise Trump, which will encourage him to run as a "third party", and thereby help to reelect Obama, you, too, would be calling that person a twit--or worse.

I call anyone who encourages Trump to be next to a traitor and someone who does not love their country as much as themselves.

Palin can go jump in a lake as far as I'm concerned. She is dangerous.

There is NOTHING good about Trump running as a third party and he is all ego and Palin is helping to stroke it. Shame on Palin!!

Palin DID NOT address anything about VP. Bolling brought it up and she pretty much ignored it. Regarding her comments about Santorum and Trump, you might want to look at the interview before you jump to conclusions. She said that Santorum was ideologically consistent. She said that Trump has some good ideas. She said that Ron Paul was right on fiscal policy. She also said that NONE of the candidates are perfect.

What are you using for brains? Watch the interview. She does not support the idea of anyone running 3rd party. All she said was that Trump has the right to do what he wants and to think what he does.

Oh, give it up. I have never been a Palin fan but I've never been anti-Palin either. I've never considered her a serious candidate and now after this stupid endorsement of Trump, she's off her rocker.

I really have never been anti-Palin and as a matter of fact, I've always liked her more than her gullible fans and now today, this just proves it.

Now, I am anti-Palin. If she's going to encourage Trump to run "third party", she's off my good list and it's time for all you Palin worshipers to wake up that she is just another flawed human being. If someone else encouraged Trump, you would be outraged but Saint Sarah says it, and it's A-OK.

""Donald Trump has a lot to offer."--Sarah Palin

BTW, that would make a good tag line, wouldn't it but why bother--she's not worth it.

Perhaps the best thing you can teach your grandchildren and great-grandchildren is to get the facts before giving their opinion. Palin does NOT support Trump or Paul running 3rd party. She simply stated that each of them have some good ideas. She DID say that a 3rd party run would hand the election to Obama.

Have you been a palin supporter? If yes, then why don't you know about her record? don't we, as adult conservatives, dig into our candidates records?

Here is one site that links to various government budget and debt reports that show exactly what I wrote to be true vis a vis Wasilla.

http://www.dailysource.org/special/palin/183

As for the windfall tax...if you don't already know about that then you really have not been paying attention.

Same for the pipeline to nowhere and its $500 million commitment of Alaska taxpayers' money.

Re the $500 million give-away that palin included in AGIA....

Here's a link to the official Alaska site that charts the project. You will see that absolutely nothing has moved forward but the good people of Alaska have in fact, through palin, been committed to paying $500 million even though, in the words of the state, there is no guarantee that a pipeline will ever be built...

And this was her crowning achievement as Governor.

I really don’t care what you think but I think if Sarah Palin really loves her country, she will be doing everything within her power to DISCOURAGE Trump—not encourage him.

Get off your hobby horse. This is merely justifier #349 for you to hate on Palin. Any other political figure could have made the same remarks, and you wouldn't have made a single comment.

Your reputation as a Palin hater extraordinaire, strips you of all credibility where she's the subject.

And you have no discenment. You excuse the behavior of Palin that you would be criticizing someone else for saying.

So do you think Trump has something to offer? Palin does and you worship Palin so you, too must think Trump has something to offer, even if it's to reelect Obama.

I have no patience for anyone who would think of such an unthinkable act. Trump is to be ridiculed for his actions--not encouraged.

Fine, but it's time to wake up to just exactly who is Sarah Palin. Donald Trump is an egomaniac and Palin is helping stroke that giant-sized ego, even at the peril of our country.

Sarah Palin is no patriot and you would not allow anyone else to get by saying what Palin has said.

Is Sarah Palin encouraging Trump to run third party so he may ask her to run with him? I wouldn't be surprised.

There is NO virtue in encouraging Trump.

A person shilling the threads for a man who tried forcing Guardasil on girls over parental wishes, speaks lovingly at LaRaza and Muslim events and accepts gifts from Mexican presidents in appreciation for his open border comments really has no room to talk about ‘real’ conservatives.

A run through your post history, which I recommend anyone taking you at face value do, reveals one of the grander cases of PDS remaining here.

Of course, these issues have been discussed, debated, debunked, dealt with, etc a few thousand times on FR since 2007 and you know it. But hey, keep bringing the same stuff up and throwing it at the wall. People genuinely interested will look it up as many before them, go deeper into these issues than your soundbytes and actually learn the realities surrounding them.

“I’m so glad that you didn’t, you are ever merciful.”

As I pointed out recently, I am supreme in thought, word and deed. I will be happy, in my mercy, to give you the proper opinions you should hold, if you would but only ask. This would save you from making a fool of yourself by associating good people with prostitution and other muddy waters you find yourself swimming in on a semi-regular basis.

“I’m cut to the quick. I’ll need to reconsider my whole worldview now.”

I think many of us here agree that it would be to your benefit.

“Curse you, Norm Lenhart! I’m slain, crumpled in a ditch by your obvious superiority. “

I am also morally superior. Watch this...

You slunk into that ditch with your comment on Palin Gunner. Just admit you screwed up. If not to the rest of us, to yourself. There is something very wrong with a person making your ‘implication’ over a personality conflict. That’s what liberals do.

That said, it’s not easy being me, so much WIN wrapped up in such a gloriously incredible and talented package, but it is the burden I must bear. No need to confirm it for me. I am well aware. Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time, fart in your general direction, bring out the Holy Hand Grenade etc ...

YOU Betcha ;)

You can refrain from idol worship and *also* manage to restrain PDS to the extent that you don't accuse her of an active oral-sex-based lesbian relationship with Tammy Bruce (how pissant got banned); you de-escalated from that kind of insult merely by implying , not stating, that she's a prostitute (your yanked comment this thread).

Just take one or two more steps of equal magnitude in the direction of respectful disagreement and you'll be there.

Cheers!

What exactly do you think that ‘implying’ that she is a prostitute actually means Bill Clinton? You can parse your BS all you want. It is what it is and you said what you said. All the semantics and word games you want to play do not change reality.

Magical thinking is when you ignore several years and literally tens of thousands of posts rehashing your ‘half the story’ postings to infinity, and hoping no one bothers to read up for ‘the rest of the story’.

FR has a search function. Use it. Or not. Your choice.

And your ideal conservative running is whom? Don’t bother. I read your history. You hate, and have trashed, pretty much everyone.

:”I am not a Romney guy. “

That’s one...

“I liked Daniels but he didn’t want it. “

That’s two

“I liked Perry for a while but he’s proven to be an empty suit. “

Three.....

“I never liked Cain’s 999 plan at all. “

Four....

“MB is a stick of gum. “

Five...

“Paul is certifiable.”

Six...

“Rick Santorum lacks the new-age media-friendly persona to compete head-to-head.”

Seven....

“I like Newt but there’s just too much “there, there” to get him the nomination.”

Eight...

“Palin is unqualified, unelectable and uninterested.”

Nine....

“I am afraid to say that I think that we will get stuck with Romney...which, while not at all my preference, is better than four more years of obama.
All of this is said with full understanding that the world could change tomorrow and all of today’s bets would be off. “

So in a single post, you flat out trashed four candidates; have no intent to support three at all; and wrote off three over various personal/opinion issues with them.

My quote was “You hate, and have trashed, pretty much everyone.” That is pretty much everyone.

The person lying here, is not me.
