Nope. She’s a grifter, only in it for the money.

I think we have a better field this time around. However, I would love for Palin to set up a third party line that would only be actively promoted if Bush-christie-romney gets the nomination.

Ok then. Name your prince. But I’ll help you out. Palin quit her first, high-paying political appointment in Alaska because of the corruption that surrounded her. She even asked her husband Todd if they could survive without the money. Obviously he supported her because she did quit out of protest. One more time, name your political knight in shining armor who has done ANYTHING similar... I’m waiting.

I don’t think she is in it ONLY for the money, but rather she cares about the direction of the country and cashing in is a nice side effect.

“Nope. She’s a grifter, only in it for the money.”

Don’t know about the grifter part but I think her moment has passed. This doesn’t mean I do not agree with her on many issues. I just don’t think she could get the message across to voters over the media created personae of who she is. She has been so vilified by the LSM that there she would never win.

The Republicans need a candidate that is a minority man. One who is willing rub the left’s face in their hatred which they think is tolerance in a way that exposes them for the frauds they are.

Cruz, West, others come to mind. Palin if she wants to help needs to run for senate or governor in Alaska (Assuming she still lives in Alaska)

I hope not. After her “jump the shark” comment about baptizing people by waterboarding them, she’s off my list. It was a stupid, cruel and anti-Christian thing to say.

After she resigned the governorship, I always thought Palin was all about Palin, especially once she got into being a radio personality. But this was mean and just plain dumb, and I certainly wouldn’t even consider voting for her now.

Other than Cruz, who hasn’t announced yet, please list this stellar crowd. Palin is completely vetted, something that we always forget. There aren’t going to be any surprises with her. Similarly, she is not going to pull a Rand Paul and suddenly present as a RINO from the beltway. And one more that cannot be denied: If Hillary runs, how does a Republican man challenge for the woman’s vote? If Palin runs, she wins in a landslide.

I sincerely doubt it. If you really knew what makes the Palins tick, you’d know that the pursuit of money is a low priority to them.

You are exactly right on the money! Matter of fact, the GOPe agrees totally with you: she never could win now. Never. Not not never but never never never not now. No.

So you’re against waterboarding a terrorist who would provide information that could prevent a nuclear detonation in Manhattan? Please. If you won’t vote for her because of that then you were obviously never going to vote for her anyway.

My belief is, the nomination is there if she wants it. I’m not sure why she backed away from 2012 because it was probably the same thing then. I hope she takes the opportunity because I honestly don’t think any other candidate could win in 2016 nor if they did, would they be able to fix the mess. I’m not even sure Palin can fix the mess, and the world could be a far more chaotic place by early 2017 than it is today.

As to this waterboarding remark, it’s understandable. The sane people of this world have had it up to the eyeballs with the barbaric mindless killing spree of the Islamists, and exasperation is understandable. Most voters are probably not looking for Utopian enlightenment towards terrorists at this point. We could get that in spades from the current administration, but who needs it?

I guess you won’t go away... Name the Republican nominee who won’t be vilified by the MSM? Remember how they lived McCain? Was Reagan loved by the MSM? Romney faired well too, didn’t he? Omg, the lunacy on FR is staggering.

Other than Cruz, who hasn’t announced yet, please list this stellar crowd.

Ted Cruz
Scott Walker
Mike Pence


All three can be held as better candidates than Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

Walker is the one man who has been every bit as vetted as Sarah Palin. He has also won TWO statewide elections in under three years and is about to win his third. Like Palin, he makes the lefties' heads explode and makes their mouths froth. Pence is solid and has been in both congress and is a sitting governor. He also knows how to handle the media.

I would happily support Palin, but wish she made a go of it last time as she had the publicity and the momentum and could have done well in a lot of the primaries against a Romney. But she didn't run, which is her business. If she is NOT going to run, I would love for her to reserve a third party line as an emergency escape hatch against an uper RINO (Bush/Romney/Christie, maybe R. Paul the way he's been talking)

I don't buy into the idea that we need a woman to run against a witch. There are plenty of women who will vote for a Cruz or a Pence. Plenty of women will re-elect Scott Walker this year despite his opponent being a woman.

Palin was not serious about running in 2012 and she’s not serious for 2016. She ought to run for the House or Senate from Alaska. She would do a good job.

IMO if we get a republican president in 2016 they should make her Secretary of Energy. She actually is incredibly knowledgeable about it.

I would offer that Palin is targeted precisely because the Left fears what she would do if she ever took the reins of power. It is why I support her. Heads... Will... Roll.

I think Palin is forever loyal to McCain.

I don’t like it, but I also did not nominate Ms. Palin as my running mate, and America’s Vice Presidential candidate in 2008.

McCain is a special case. I don’t think it is fair to criticize Palin for supporting McCain. McCain introduced her to all of us.

I am not supporting McCain, but he’s a special case to Palin.

I actually think Palin was preparing to run in 2012, something changed her mind.

I think she is currently deciding whether to run.

Give her time.

Let me try... Palin is, above all, loyal. McCain reached into Alaska in ‘08 and handed a political neophyte the opportunity of a lifetime. If her great sin is supporting her benefactor, well... we could do much worse.

The gall of her! Money money money. All she does is talk about how much money she makes to help support her quite large family. I don't blame you one bit for holding her responsible for her capitalistic behavior. Shame!

And something else: she hasn't even paid off all her family's defense lawyer bills yet!

She's a slacker, too. Quits in the middle of every single Governor's position she ever has held.

(What did I omit?)

I’ll vote Palin. First choice, actually. Followed by Cruz. Then maybe two or three unlikely long-shots, like Gohmert or Lee. But that’s about it.

Otherwise, I’m not going to bother with the GOP nominee. I no longer have any trust in the Party whatsoever. Watching them cave on everything from amnesty to spending to social issues, the GOP obviously no longer shares my views. I left my presidential ballot blank in 2012, and I’ll do so again in 2016.
