Sarah Palinís Still in the Game
The National Review ^ | June 15, 2013 | Katrina Trinko

While national media attention has waned since she opted not to run for president in 2012, Palin has remained a conservative favorite, garnering huge applause at CPAC earlier this year for her speech and helping to boost four out of her five endorsed Senate candidates to primary wins last year. She is set to re-join Fox News as a contributor, after a few months absence. She continues to have a dominant social-media presence on Twitter and Facebook. Today she’s slated to speak at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Road to Majority Conference — where, if the past is any indication, she’ll earn thunderous applause.

“She flourishes when she is within her element and among the people who believe in her message and want to hear red meat with a soft touch,” says GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway.

“Her support, if anything, has grown,” says Amy Kremer, president of the Tea Party Express. “She’s so down to earth and does what she feels and what she thinks and she doesn’t hold back. She’s not intimidated by the Left or by the establishment.”

In other words, she’s still adored by some conservatives — even if she doesn’t inspire the same amount of coverage from the “lamestream media” that she used to. “She is a rock star to the conservative movement,” Kremer adds. “Of course we have upcoming and rising stars whose profile is growing, such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, but there is no one that excites the base like Sarah Palin.”

Cruz, the freshman senator who has generated plenty of attention as a tea-party favorite, warmly praises Palin. “Governor Palin is a friend and a true patriot,” Cruz e-mails.....

Run for President Sarah Palin

If Sarah Palin were President we'd be drilling for oil which would lower the price of everything , even the fuel factories use to make things in the USA

If Sarah Palin were President we wouldn't have Obamacare

If Sarah Palin were President the IRS would not be oppressing conservatives

If Sarah Palin were President we would have less government and regulations that are strangling businesses ( as in the EPA, IRS etc)

If Sarah Palin were President instead of the big eared socialist Obama, the government would not be oppressing Americans and conservatives and midddle America

impeach the Communist Obama for ordering the IRS to rig the election

I have many more but little time

impeach the Communist Obama for ordering the IRS to rig the election

She knows what’s right, she verbalizes it, and she stands behind it.

I think Sarah Palin will never leave the game.

The only question that I’ve ever had is, how does she define that? Being in the game is a euphemism. Unspecific.

Some folks interpreted leaving the AK governership as leaving game.

Some interpreted not running for the presidency in 2012 as that.

Some interpreted not being on Fox News the same.

All along she has put her personal and formidable skills, personality and beliefs out there, never quitting on that.

Again there’s the “she’s gotta run in 2016” from some. For some, only Sarah will do.

I have a list of 3. Unless I find someone else to add, it’s my list and that’s it. I have said these three and not any others, unless I change my mind. Sarah Palin. Ted Cruz. And yes, Rick Perry.

I also said, any one of them would be GREAT to me. And, that I would not allow anyone to play one of them off against the others to cause me to get into that game. In other words, we must have only _________, and if we have to destroy anyone else to get them, we will destroy.

Not me.

Not THAT game.

Of course if Palin were vice president and McCain were president in his second term we might have all of what you listed.

And what is Sarah Palin’s nemesis, Katie Couric, doing these days? She’s a hosting a failed daily talk show.

And what is Sarah’s other nemesis, Barack Obama, doing these day? He’s running a failed presidency.

She was clear as can be on amnesty and getting involved in Syria. Who at the conference said as much or more?

The perfect scenario: Sarah announces that she will run in 16’ IF the GOP takes the senate in 16’.
