Sarah Palin.

The GOP has heard your cry for a woman who has experience in the political arena and is proud to present the next election-cycle of:
Hillary Clinton vs Olimpia Snowe

This will continue the trend of selecting such winning candidates as John McCain and Mitt Romney!
Do any of you seriously doubt that this is at least a possibility? If so, I think I have a bridge to sell you...

Nikki is a governor, like Palin. I like Palin, she would be my ultimate favorite, but I think the fact she resigned would be used against her. She could make a great senator, and after that maybe she could run for president.

IMHO, we are fortunate that The Hildabeaste peaked too soon.

In October of 2016, she’ll turn 69. I doubt she’ll be healthy enough to run.

If The Hildabeaste does not run, what other female RAT could step up?

Palin represents my views better than anyone out there. Her unique mix of fiscal conservatism, social conservatism, western-state libertarianism, and populist reformer (elements which don’t always meld together all that well, but somehow fit together into an amazingly comfortable package with Palin), fits my views and ideology to a “t.” I’d support her more strongly than anyone since Reagan.

Michelle Bachmann would be okay too. She’s really solid on just about every position, and I’d readily vote for her as well. She just doesn’t quite have that kind of iconoclastic, anti-establishment reformer element that Palin does... which is something I particularly value about Palin. Not sure about Nikki Haley. Hear some good things about, some less than good. Don’t know enough.

Oh, well. Why ponder all this? Rove and the GOP-E will put forth some exasperatingly wretched RINO, and I’ll likely be staying home on election day 2016.

Now that we have a bisexual(?) or gay President, the Left will cram the Hildebeast down our throats. She will also be our first lesbian President if the rumors are correct.

Do you remember the same history I do? Chappaquiddick wasn’t even a major speed bump in Teddy’s evil career. Unless Issa can come up with something devastating about Benghazi the media can’t sweep under the rug, it’ll be forgotten by 2016.

That may be, but the fact is Palin ran first an aggressive and responsive Alaska governorship - then as VP candidate to Senator John McCain’s run for President before flirting with her own run last year.

Prior to the VP run, her approval was highest in the nation.

Palin has real qualifications.

see Nikki Haley once looked at a RINO so that disqualifies her to some here , never mind she won't allow Obamacare in her state etc. so they'll knock them out 1 by 1. we all need to get behind someone , 1 person and stick with her.

She's good enough for me so is Palin so all we have to do is see who is running.

Argumentum ad populum.

From Wikipedia ...
A fallacious argument that concludes a proposition to be true because many or most people believe it. In other words, the basic idea of the argument is: “If many believe so, it is so.”

Westbrook adds ...
It is one of a class of arguments that are not based on facts and logic, but rather appeal to the emotions or baser instincts.

What’s worse is that Leftist vermin like Clift the hag and 0bama the Castro-wannabe mostly fabricate their own statistics or borrow them from the Leftist echo chamber that fabricates the statistics for them.

I think she’d be 10x worse, if she was POTUS, instead of 0scumbag.

Obama hates America and wants to destroy our country, when he's not vacationing or golfing. Hillary wants America to be strong so that she will have absolute power as she rules us with her iron fist. I don't want to see which is worse.

Praying for America to wake up...praying for God to open their ears to hear and eyes to see. When He closes them it is because of their sin, and this nation’s streets are covered in the blood of the innocent unborn. Will He do it? He did it for Israel when Josiah became king. He was 8 at the time. But He didn’t forgive them and during the next reign they were invaded by those from Babylon.

My limited view of Haley is more positive than negative. It’s just that after the last four years, I’ve grown to distrust much of the GOP, and want to be deadly sure it’s not going to be someone who winds up acquiescing to the beltway Borg.

After last year’s convention, which disgustingly and disgracefully snubbed Palin, and wouldn’t even allow the words “tea party” be uttered from the floor... followed by this year’s parade of ‘supposed’ conservative stalwarts going sour, from Rubio pushing amnesty, to Toomey going for gun registration, to even last week, Paul Ryan suddenly okay with gay adoption (not to mention joining Luis Guiterez in promoting amnesty as well!)... heck, I’m at my wit’s end when it comes to the Republican Party. I don’t trust them an inch anymore!

Some patriots may not understand that Palin had much more constitutonal authority to serve the citizens of Alaska than the federal government has, same for all other governors and their respective state governments. As I mentioned elsewhere, one of the few powers to regulate any aspect of intrastate commerse that the Founding States delegated to the feds via the Constitution is to regulate postal services, Clause 7 of Section 8 of Article I. Patriots who expect other “government” services on a daily basis from the president haven’t read the Constitution.

Military, treaty, intrastate trade and foreign trade issues aside, basically the only thing that Senator Palin or President Palin can do to help restore the Constitutional Republic is to help stop or veto appropriations bills that corrupt Congress cannot justify under the Constitution’s Section 8 of Article I.

No kidding; one big problem is that statism is so ingrained in the general thought of the people that it's perfectly acceptable to push candidates who think there is a government solution to every problem (Romney and Obama are both Statists)... also bad is the idea that the President can raise/lower taxes or make/repeal law.

Ah.

His brother must’ve been horribly drunk when he married that hag. Must’ve filed for divorce shortly after he sobered up.

I'm glad that Palin did not run in '12. This is because I think that the election was rigged despite Obama guard dog Fx News claiming that it was a clean election. Losing would probably have made any challenger look bad for future races.

The most important thing to radical-feminists i.e. female Dem voters is that a female Dem candidate be a strong supporter of no-limits abortion. All other issues are trivial.

Being a senator has no relevant experience to governing a country, unless you like going to meetings and flapping your gums. Being a senator would be a purely political move to satisfy those who would hold her quitting as governor against her. OTOH, the media and everyone who hates her use the fact that she has small children she needs to raise against her.
