Skip to comments.Palin has path to win, Republican warns (Don't you love that title?)

Prominent New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg says that Sarah Palin just might have a clearer path to the Republican presidential nomination next year than commonly understood an event he warns would lead to President Obama's clear reelection.
Gregg, the former senator and governor of the Granite State, says the muddled GOP presidential field means it's more likely than ever there won't be a clear consensus candidate before the party's nominating convention in August of 2012. If that happens, says Gregg, Palin and her army of supporters might have the upper hand when it comes to settling on a presidential candidate.
"A candidate who runs second or third in a great many primaries could go into the convention with a sizable block of delegates," writes Gregg in an Op-Ed in The Hill newspaper Monday. "Who would this favor? Does Sarah Palin come to mind? Although she is not viewed by most as strong enough to win, she is viewed by many as a person worth voting for to make a statement."
While it's unlikely Palin (should she run) would win that many primary contests, placing second or third might be enough - especially this time around when delegates will be awarded a proportionate basis instead of the winner-take-all system that has previously been the rule in Republican primaries....

CNN exaggerating again. Sarah will make a fine President and everyone should see that. I believe the sooner we start this primary the better. Let’s get this show on the road. Sarah stand up.....get er done.
In 2008, Gregg was a supporter of Mitt Romney,LOL!
Exactly!.....and it’s up to real Conservatives to show them they’re NOT!
Generically, it’s like: “RINO warns Conservative has path to win”
They view Palin as much as an opponent as the Democrat party.
CNN ??????????? LMAO, How many viewers they have nowadays 2?
First three hits on Google... “Republican Judd Gregg”
In the Senate, Gregg was the leading Republican negotiator and author of the TARP program,
Feb 1, 2009 ... Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) is the leading candidate to become President Obama’s Commerce secretary,
May 5, 2010 ... Judd Gregg (R-NH) and Bob Corker (R-TN) are throwing their own side under the bus on financial deform.
|Thoughts for the day
Republicans win in 2012. They are going to try very hard to force an insider candidate like Gingrich or Romney on us.
Conservatives are kept too busy. Downsize some, and give a day a week to joining/starting Tea Party action groups if you really want things to change.
Get rid of the TV. Even the most aware people are swallowing subtle propaganda through the TV.
Muslim atrocities in the USA are sure to punctuate the next few years. When they occur, try to open the public debate about muslim immigration. With each new muslim atrocity, the level of public discussion about the issue deserves to increase.
I think what Mr. Gregg and so many other Republican males are doing is projecting. In their subconsciouses, they are feeling (not thinking), “Sarah Palin is beautiful, hopeful, confident, and principled. She makes me feel totally inadequate. Barack Obama is a slimy leftist politician of dubious masculinity. He makes me feel better about myself.
Therefore, in a contest between the two, I would vote for Obama, regardless of the consequences for the country. After all, I’m rich enough that $6 gas and $6 milk aren’t really going to hurt me. Screw those little people ... it’s all about my ego.”
Having reached this conclusion, they assume the rest of the voters will respond the same way.
That's exactly what she needs to focus on right now. It's not the job of "everyone" to acknowledge Sarah as the best one for the job. It's up to the candidate to see to it that everyone see that. If the candidate fails to do that, then they were not The candidate. If you fail to lead them to your campaign you probably are not going to lead them as a nation.
By now Sarah should have more than just the tea partiers behind her. She should also have most if not all republicans, most independents and even a lot of democrats already on her side given the terrible president we have now.
Personally I've yet see anyone better than Palin on the republican side.
Former, being the key word here; as in irrelevant. Further this guy was nominated by the Obama administration for Commerce Secretary. He withdrew himself. He also was up for re-election but "decided not to run".
Does this sound like anything but another limp-wristed rino?
May the treasonous RINOs weep in misery to no end along with the socialists come the day after the 2012 election.
Pretty depressing when a woman such as Palin is more man than any of those metro-sexual, feminine, repulsive republican men.
Is it any wonder our society/culture is collapsing with those types ingrained in our government? Lord, they compromised us down the tubes.
You are pretty right here. There was all type of talk about how the bumpkin Reagan being the nominee would give Carter a free ride to reelection. I seem to remember an article about how these Country Clubbers were pushing Reagan in '80 to have a co-President to mellow out the elitists. Their choice? Ford. What a disaster that would have been.
I am shocked I tell you. Shocked!
A “snippet” from Wikipedia:
Gregg has a moderate record on social issues. In June 2006, he joined six of his fellow Republicans in voting against the Federal Marriage Amendment. In April 2007, he was among the breakaway Republicans to support the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. However, his record on the issue of abortion is a solidly pro-life one. Gregg has voted for some gun control measures and against others. He voted against the Brady Bill, but in recent years has voted for trigger control locks on firearms and in favor of the ban on assault weapons.
On December 17, 2009, Gregg voted to extend Chairman Ben Bernanke’s term.
Presidential politics: During the 2004 Presidential Election, Gregg stood in for John Kerry during practice sessions held by George W. Bush in preparation for the 2004 United States Presidential Election Debates. Four years earlier he had played the part of Al Gore for the same purpose.
On October 29, 2007, Gregg endorsed Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.
Does anything else need to be said?
The same Judd Gregg who publicly considered a position in the 0bama Cabinet? THAT Judd Gregg?
It’s really rich. A Romney supporter warning about Palin.
Romney supporters need to worry about brain damage: their own.
