Hmmmmm.....I’m starting to think Big Media is a little biased.
I’ll go one more...for a national stage, she needs to move away from Alaska and run for Governor of Texas or Florida...major state governor would be a fantastic springboard...magritte
The writer of the article didn’t take into account a number of things as many GOP handicappers are not. First and foremost the GOP electorate of 2008 won’t be the same in 2012.
How will those who have reached age 18 between Dec ‘08 and primary time 2012 vote? How will those young ladies vote that were too young in ‘08?
How will disaffected Obama voters/Dems vote in ‘12? How about sorely disappointed Hillary voters? As the poll numbers rise among pro-lifers who will they line up behind?
Personally, Palin is the only GOPer who will motivate me to move from independent to the GOP to vote for her in my state’s primary in 2012.
You make a good point and I’ve been pointing out that it isn’t that the Democrats have gained ground in party affiliation as Republicans have increasingly shifted into the Independent column. Even the recent poll on whether the GOP is leaderless or not a huge number 37% say yes and I’m betting the majority of them are social/fiscal conservatives.
Obama is, according to most bogus polls somewhere between 68-59 %. Realistically he’s good come election time for about 55% or less. The excitement that Sarah will bring to the GOP primary season alone will shift about 3 to 5% of his wobbly/fadish supporters to the latest trendy thing (Cuda-mania).
But serious voters like yourself and me know that the person to take back the White House must be dead serious about taking back the country.
That person must be able to not only articulate conservative philosophy, but also articulate policy, demostrate executive experience and above all (politically speaking) motivate/electrify huge swaths of the American electorate in a “Tea Party-like” revoly against the Wahington status quo.
Okay, that having been said, who fits that bill on all fronts? Who already has a massive movement in place ready to take marching orders?
What GOPer can bring Hillary Dems, Libertarians, conservative Gopers, religious voters, feminists, a few moderates and the military ranks together to confront Obama’s minions in 2012?
I’ll give you one guess-—he’s a she and her nickname is The Cuda!
I hope she gets involved in the 2010 race to point out the RINOs she thinks should lose IN THE PRIMARIES
She will have her own primary to contend with and then state election that she will have to be paying attention too.
Personally I think Romney is better off and best used in a position where he can solve problems. It’s what he does best. Politics? Of the nature required by the presidency? Not so much.
He gave it a shot for 2 years in Mass but we are so liberal we’re probably the most dysfunctional state in the union.
