I am still not convinced that Romney will be the nominee. Kissenger promised China that Jeb Bush would be the president in 2012.

Romney/Palin would give me a heckuva quandary. I'd love to see Palin as President, but do I like it enough to endure 4 years of gun-grabbin', carbon-taxin', job-killin', gay-marryin', big-spendin', power-lovin' Romney?

I'd have to think on it.

Kissinger didn’t give a date he just said Jeb Bush would be the next president....

I don’t have to think about it. I saw how it played out in 08. She learned not to run second fiddle to a rino then anyways. I doubt she is willing to do it again.

nobody listens to what this crazy manchurian candidate thinks...that is why he wasn’t elected.

I hope for a brokered convention and Palin chosen as the candidate.

no one else has her conservatism.

Republican Candidates could improve their Primary vote count by campaigning with the following idea:

Due to the FHA, Fannie and Freddie Bankruptcies of September, 2008, American home owners lost 30 % of the value of their homes. That is a 30 % cut in just one month. Home values are still down 30 %.

Thus, let us cut the total compensation to all elected Federal politicians, and their staffs by 30 %, and an additional 10 % cut to elected Federal politicians each year until Federal Spending is LESS THAN the average of the previous 2 years of Federal income.

BTW, since slightly less than half of the US House, and 2/3 of the US Senate are Millionaires, it will be a great opportunity for Congress to lead by example that EVERYONE should give up their “fair” share of the American Dream.

What better way can there be to demonstrate that Federal politicians are on the same page as the voters?

She declined to run for the presidency herself, maintaining that she can have more influence as a media presence than as an actual candidate.

Sarah has not declined to run for the presidency, she stepped aside. If Sarah Palin is called to be the Republican Convention nominee, she'll probably take it.

Always the bridesmaid never the bride? They need her to turn up the base for this RINO, so they can place blame again like last time.

Couldn’t imagine Palin even wanting to get near that dead weight to begin with. First thing that would happen is the Romney people would start backstabbing her and using her as a scapegoat for their own sinking campaign.

Juan McCain, turned in Hanoi, says nothing anyone needs to hear.

In 2008 we had two Manchurian candidates. One took a dive, The other one is in the White House.

FUJMcC.

And don’t you ever mention Palin’s name again.

Romney will only nominate (if he is actually the nominee) some who does not over shadow him. He is not very bright so the the VP will have to be stupid.

I seriously doubt that Sarah would accept being the running-mate of a RINO (Romney), but if it would happen, I would not vote for Romney, no matter what.

She should have learned her lesson that a token VP Conservative on a loser RINO Candidate Ticket is not a good plan and will NOT gain Conservative votes. If she was the top-of-the-ticket, I could care less about the VP, but she wouldn't put a RINO there, herself.

That said, prepare for Obama for 4 more years, because the GOP-e has selected Romney-the-RINO, and he won't win in this lifetime.....he's Obama-lite.

All this is telling you is that the GOP elite know they have a huge base vs. Romney problem and they can not win with him.

The problem is that I do not think that even Palin can help Romney with the base. I can not vote for Romney and I am tired of the games the GOP plays with their base. When you ignore your own base for your own agenda at some point enough is enough and your voters walk.

Jindal would be by far the best choice, but he’ll never get it because he isn’t a part of the establishment and doesn’t aspire to be as evidenced by his endorsements.

Yeah, if she’d share a ticket with you she’d probably share a toothbrush with Mitt Romney.
But it won’t help him, and it might hurt her.

They did it once, they'll do it again. Sarah is about as 'authentic' as it gets ..... I can't imagine her hooking her star to a fraud like Romney. She'll be stained with his RINO manure & it won't come off ... and of course, if Romney loses as he is likely to do, it would ALL be her fault. If she has any thought of ever running for president, she needs to stay clear of Romney. If Romney loses to Obummer, I'm for chucking the GOP-e's who keep nominating losers, can't run Congress, won't stand up to Obummer, etc. and going 3rd party with Sarah leading the troops. There will be time & there will be the anger/energy for a 3rd party if we get O for another 4 years .... the question is, will we have a country.

Talk about an unnecessary job... Romney’s mind is like Chicago weather: if you don’t like it, wait 15 minutes and it will change.

Not too much to think about.

Maybe if Obama was running as a “moderate” against Kim Jong-un or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad I would give it serious consideration...

I don't think accepting the VP slot is a suggestion of total agreement with the candidate. On the contrary, it gives balance to the ticket.

I would respect Palin for accepting the offer so that she can keep an eye on Romney. We need someone we can trust.

It's all a moot point anyway. Romney would NEVER pick Sarah, and I don't really believe McCain truly meant this.

Indded I can see that happening.

I got the impression last time that McCain and Obama made a deal not to hurt each other, and Obama would use his heavy artillery on Palin, not McCain. When McCain said that there was no need to fear an Obama presidency, he’d be fine, I thought I had confirmation of that. Certainly there was no battle between the two men.

And the press was getting lots of stuff about Palin that was irresistible to them, so they were kept busy researching that and not Obama.

“On the contrary, it gives balance to the ticket.”

If the VP would actually fulfill the constitutional role of presiding over the senate, maybe there would be some balance. But when was the last time that happened?

As far as policy and implementation, the VP might as well be Mickey Mouse. Gore used the office to push his AGW scams, and Biden is a potted plant. The office of VP these days is useless.

If Romney picked the most conservative person in the USA, he might fool people on the balance issue, but that conservative would not necessarily have any influence on Romney’s plans for nationalized health care, gay marriage and radical judges.
