Skip to comments.2016 Elections: Is Palin the GOPís Answer to Hillary Clinton?
Posted on 04/02/2014 5:16:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Will Sarah Palin run against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election? No, its safe to say that she likely wont. Though, as she said herself when asked, never say never. She followed the statement up by adding, I dont have a team of people, you know, getting out there doing these poll-tested whatever they do to let you know if you should run or not. I dont have any of that kind of organization going, according to The Examiner. While her candidacy would certainly be welcomed by some within the GOP, especially further to the right including the Tea Party that doesnt supersede the odds.
That hasnt stopped back and forth discussion on whether or not she should run, on whether or not the idea has merit. When it comes down to it, Palins resurgence has to do with a number of things. Shes being suggested as a solution to the GOPs failure to compete with Democratic candidates, and failure to reach potential voters by alienating possible swing votes with overemphasis on certain issues, and underemphasis on others. Shes female and has played a prominent role in past presidential elections, running as Vice President to John McCain, so when Republicans scramble for a womans voice in their party that could compete with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her name is near the surface.
Of course, that doesnt make her the only woman in the Republican party being considered for a roll in 2016. Kelly Ayottes name has been batted around quite a bit for the Vice Presidency, though on whos ticket is still uncertain. Ayotte could turn the war on women narrative into a punch line, said Steve Schmidt, manager of John McCains 2008 bid....

Unmarried pro-abortion pro-amnesty Condi Rice is the answer.
I politely disagree.
Long answer: Affirmative.
What is the question?
If she runs, I really doubt that “poll tested” will be a factor
People and money will come out of the woodwork.
Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals’ heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.
In a landslide.
No RINO’s, thank you.
Only if the GOP wants to beat Walter Mondales record.
Look at my tagline. Do you see the words “Bush” or “Christie” there?
“Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.”
As much as I love that idea, I fear that we would see a repeat of Goldwater/Johnson.
The Marxist Stream Media would be trashing and making fun of her her 24/7.
Rice / Snowe 2016!!
Or McCain* / Romney 2016!!
* (This has the bonus that McCain will probably not make it through the entire term, thus allowing us to get two Republican Presidents in a single term!)
>>Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.<<
After they die, liberals vote TWICE in each election.
The look on Smucky Chumer, Di-Fi, Boxer, Lindsey Gramnasty, Un Poco Loco Dicko Durbin, and so many others faces would be worth it's weight in Gold...
Carl Rove would be deeply saddened...
With lots of help from our resident PDSers.
If people could twist themselves in knots and vote Romney despite a media assault, they can damn well vote for an actual conservative like Palin despite a media assault.
Unless they aren’t conservative to begin with.
The media will trash anyone running against a Dem. Nothing new and it’s an old excuse we really ought to stop turning into self fulfilling prophecy every couple years.
REPUBLICAN WOMEN would put Hillary over the top.
I didn’t know that was the question.
If they want to lose the election. That is beside the point though. She is not interested in running.
You can’t be serious. McCain?!
They’ve been “trashing and making fun of her” since August 29, 2008. She’s bigger now than she was then. If Milt, Hillary or Barry were ever to come under 10% of the fire she has endured they’d be cowering in a corner.
If she runs and gets the nomination her campaign fund will be $2500 richer on my part. Here’s what she should do: On election eve (2014) she should announce that if the Republicans win big(53 to 54 senate seats) she will then run. Any nose-to-nose winner will owe their victory to her to her.
My ass, said Republican women in unison.
I want a conservative—especially a social conservative. Palin is on my short list, as are Ted Cruz, Mike Pence, and Rick Santorum. Don’t expect me to vote for an (ahem) moderate. Ain’t gonna happen. And don’t expect me to campaign for a squishy conservative. Give me someone that I can not only vote for but enthusiastically campaign for.
But in any case, no… not serious at all.
could you make that bottom line smaller cause while I cannot see it...I’m Purdy sure I can smell it
Is this the same Steve Schmidt who undercut Sarah Palin every chance he got, during that campaign?
Yes, it’s the same POS loser, who looks like Karl Rove’s mentally-challenged baby brother.
I love it when the Commies make fun of her. The classic is when they laugh at her “I can see Russia”. Very few know that Russia and Alaska are separated by less then 3 miles.
(Big Diomede Island, Russia and Little Diomede Island, Alaska.
Me too. I suspect I’m like thousands of others. When and if Sarah ever says, “Let’s roll,” I’m off the porch.
Check my tagline.
Palin would lose and lose big time....you see what the media can do in making Obambi out to be something he is not and the zombies still love him. The corrupt media now shapes and owns the image portrayed and the ignorant public laps it up. It is no mystery the media has a slobbering love affair for Hitlary and a larger than life disdain for Palin. You think it was bad for her as veep running mate? It would be relentless running for president. I love her but with this media she doesnt stand a chance
at this point, what have you got to lose?
Palin’s first line at her inauguration: I guess the “war on women” is over.
If Cruz runs, Sarah Palin will be all in for Ted.
My mistake. I did miss the sarc tag but I should have figured.
Condi gives you a two fer. She is black and a woman.
Plus she likes football and nascar.
The negative on her is that she is a self made prodigy.
That would be a plus in the old USA, but somehow in the new USA it is bad. It is good to be successful now only if you can give credit to society as a whole for your success.
That way, society feels good about you and itself. An individual who does well despite society is a threat to society and makes society fell bad.
In terms of the new movie Divergent, Condi Rice and Mitt Romney are divergent and the rest of society feels bad that they exist.
Her silver spoon, no matter how you think she got there, doesn’t qualify her for the gold. IMO.
Not a problem, we all get in a rush and/or misread things.
There were only three networks plus PBS in 1980. The conservative Internet didn’t exist. But somehow a conservative beat a sitting president. Hillary is not an incumbent.
If I may, I think ObamahatesPACoal's comment was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the GOP's growing tendency to push people who are indistinguishable from their Democrat counterpart.
(e.g. Obama and Romney).
Yes, together with Nicole Wallace, who later claimed they had a scheme to keep Gov. Palin from being sworn in as vice president if they had won. Really.
There won’t be another black president in our lifetimes. Write that down.
