Mark Steyn: Sarah Palin a better king maker than GOP candidate
The Right Scoop ^ | May 13,2011

Posted on 05/13/2011 6:17:38 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Mark Steyn says he has a soft spot for Tim Pawlenty and believes he may be the last man standing to challenge Obama in 2012. He also says Newt won’t be President and that Trump isn’t conservative and trashes his demonization of China as the single source of all that ails us.

As for Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin, Steyn says he wouldn’t advise them to enter the field of 2012 GOP candidates. He says Sarah Palin would make a better king-maker and Huckabee should stick with his successful Fox News show.

I’d say I don’t know what Gargantua’s problem is. I love Lt. Col. Allen West. I also love Sarah Palin. And I love you too, sweetheart!

"I’d say I don’t know what Gargantua’s problem is."

How much time do you have? ;0)

BTW, I consider this post upon which you commented to be far more than a minor milestone success...

...I got you to reply to one of my posts for only the third or fourth time in fourteen years! Thank you for caring, Jim. I do love you, my personal problems notwithstanding. While I appreciate and admire Col. West's military service, I was less impressed with his vote against the first round of GOP spending cuts, as well as his scathing characterization of them as being "Draconian" as though that were a bad thing.

We will either willingly face "Draconian" spending cuts, or we will face a "Faustian" future with America descending into absolutely despotic Third-World Hell.

Col. West is a fine man, and doubtlessly a remarkable soldier. I am both of those things as well. But neither he nor I would be our best bet as the next President of the United States. IMHO.

8^D

"WTH is your problem? What did I ever do to you? ...I certainly was not the only one posting about other candidates on this thread..."

No, but you were the one using one of the more popular recent Palin threads to post huge 4-color poster-type ads for West. I suggested you might consider starting a "West" thread instead of hijacking a Palin one.

I'm not sure I understand what the big deal is. Last time I checked, everyone on FreeRepublic (including me) was using this site to express personal opinions. Perhaps I alone among Freepers should be proscribed from such activity. I don't know... what do you think?

Hot air? I WANT Palin to run. If she doesn’t, I want Cain to WIN.

How is that hot air? Hell, I want Perry to run if he’ll continue sticking it to zero and his depts.

I don’t see Ms. Palin as a viable candidate this cycle, myself.

I agree American/Americans have to start dealing with massive voting fraud and the current administration’s demonstrated antipathy to prosecuting it even in contempt of congressional sopoenas and adjudicated law..... >PS

I am glad to see you will not be banning supporters of other true conservatives such as: Bachmann,West,Cain. I share your views regarding RINO’S. I thank-you; as an Independent that has not been run off of this forum. I am grateful and relieved that FR has not endorsed any one candidate yet; as some Palin supporters seem to think. I share a ping list of getting West to run and be elected with; Just A Nobody.

I am wondering if you saw and agree with Gargantua’s “Magic Negro du jour” reference to Lt Col Allen West.

We all know Obama uses the race card and are all against political correctness but since you posted in this thread could you please clarify this is not a racist site whether it is Obama or West? The magical negro comment is a slander to Lt Col Allen West’s honor and character as his skin color has nothing to do with anything (but being immune to Obama’s race card) nor is he an empty suit magic-fake person like Obama.
