PALIN TO HIT THE ROAD Thur May 26 2011

Sarah Palin will hit the road this Memorial Day weekend on a tour of the Northeast -- with a stop in New Hampshire -- aboard a red, white and blue bus emblazoned with the words: "One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty & Justice For All."

Most of the “candidates” would be a disaster WRT Israel if elected. At least Cain, for all his ignorance, has his heart in the right place. Palin is definitely the best.

Golly,the way I see it,she has already passed those three criteria with flying colors.

Exactly and that is the bottom line with Sarah Palin for all those naysayers.

Someone show me someone else who has paid the dues she has paid, got other pubbies elected and fund raised for them as much as she has, and is ready, willing and able to serve her country any more than she is.

If they are also charismatic I want to meet them.

If Palin runs Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan should rent a bus as well. They can do what Palin would have been doing if she didn’t run. Get dozens of other pubbies elected. it will take both of them to equal what Palin does by her self.

Everything in GOOD time: Sarah Palin’s time.

Jeez Louise, how often do I have to correct you? ;-)

...in God's time.

"...let's not pray that God is on our side in a war or in any other time. But let us pray that we are on God's side." -- Sarah Palin, Sep. 12, 2008, quoting Abraham Lincoln in response to an attempted ambush by slimebag Charles Gibson of ABC propaganda network, a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC (a Soros corporation).

Cheers!

Jeff Bolton of KLIF 570 AM touts himself as a conservative, but man, is he down on Sarah. I swear, that man needs to get a check from the DNC every time he speaks of her. He's that good.

She needs much deeper knowledge on the law and history.

Deeper than who? Dubya, Bubba, Bozo, Poppy, The Gipper....who? Jefferson????

I swear, the artificial bar that some people set for Palin is nearly laughable. She's the equal or better than any of our presidents, outside of the Framers themselves.

If she were able to absorb Romney into her fold, then the primaries would in effect be over. Palin / Romney is more than the current pack of gnomes, dwarves and wee folk would be able to contest.

Hmm.... Looking at that from a purely analytical/logistical view from outside the right, I can see the logic in it. Problem is, Sarah and Mitt are ideologically like oil and water.

There's no natural mix there, and in fact, the two are mutually repellant. So would their supporters be, and the total package would wind up being less than the sum of its parts.

Might even lose to The Usurper.

Nope. Ain't gonna work.

Up until a month or so ago I was convinced Sarah was going to sit this election out. I think the rise and fall of the Donald, Huckabee and Daniels not running and the unlikelihood of a true Tea Party Conservative in the race has pushed her towards jumping in.

I remain unconvinced that she can win the General election, but I’m really, really exited to see her getting into the race!!

...getting Gov Palin through the primaries and then past the billion dollar negative media blitz of Soros/Obama won't be easy.

The putrid leftstream media has been pounding on Sarah for almost three years now, and they've hardly put a dent in her armor, or her popularity among the center-right base (as evidenced by the sheer jubilation we're witnessing).

They've already thrown everything they've got at her, and have nothing but the same old tired bromides on stand-by. The "trash Sarah Palin" show is long past it's sell-by date, and won't be nearly as effective in steering public opinion as it was a couple of years ago.

I would only work (and this just barely!) if Romney had a sudden epiphany regarding RomneyCare. Acknowledged it was a flat failure, he was foolish for doing it, it was against his better business judgment, but he let himself be talked into it, because the MA public wanted it. However he has spent too much political capital defending the indefensible to ever do this!
My previous tepid support for Romney back in 2008 was based on a) Dislike of McCain, b) Failure of Thompson's effort, c)my being influenced by some MA GOP’ers I worked with & d) that fact that he had a successful business record.

Cain's record is much more impressive! A Palin/Cain ticket would do nicely!

Seems like she does have a communication plan - albeit unconventional (which is her trademark). Recall the announcement (leaked, of course) that there’s a full-length feature film documentary coming out that will serve to reintroduce her to the American public and reset their image of her (after the non-stop pummeling handed out by the Dems, liberal media, and - most disturbingly - establishment GOPers).

Sarah has perhaps the best political instincts of any current politician. While others are rolling out “exploratory committees”, announcements in front of supporters in some park, perhaps an online video... meanwhile Sarah rolls out a full-length documentary and a nationwide bus tour. Game on!!!

Whatever her faults or failings (and no one claims any of these candidates is perfect), on her worst day, Palin is a better choice than “O” ... as an individual, a candidate and as an AMERICAN.

Damn well said, Smarty.

At heart, Palin is one of us - a real American, who loves her country deeply, and who will climb any mountain, suffer any indignity to defend her.

At her best, she has the potential to be an historic American leader, who has the vision and courage to steer this country back onto its natural track of greatness.

I’ll go with her apparent unfamiliarity with the Bush Doctrine with Charlie Gibson, for starters.

You know, the so-called "Bush Doctrine" meant many different things to many different people. When Charlie Gibson asked that question, he never expected Sarah to lob it back in his lap the way she did.

She only wanted clarification on which Bush Doctrine this leftoid media drone was aiming at, in order to avoid the inevitable 'gotcha'.

Charlie played it for all he was worth, and attempted to make it appear as though Sarah didn't have a clue what the question meant at all. Unfortunately, many people on our side bought into his theatrics.

I don't know about that - she could be - she is certainly capable of learning and I expect GREAT things from her in the debate.

Like I said - the crop of Yale Harvard Columbia Ivy league intellectuals that we have picked to lead us the last 50 years have been laughably uneducated.

Sometimes I chuckle thinking that McCain didn’t really have a clue the powerhouse he would be unleashing when he brought Palin to center stage.....it’s quite amusing to think on! ;)

I can still see her when she walked out on the stage in the “sarah way” of doing her own thing. No announcement...and there she was...and everybody laughed!

"She's the equal or better than any of our presidents, outside of the Framers themselves. "

While I agree with nearly every position I've heard her speak on (I think she may be weak on illegals) I think it's absurd to call her the equal or better of any of our Presidents.

Actually it crosses the threshold of the ridiculous.

That said, she's the BEST we have now, today. And she's damn sure good enough.

"Sarah has perhaps the best political instincts of any current politician."

Palin is the best retail politician of the 21st century so far...maybe the best since WWII.

Nobody stumps as effectively as she does. And that includes the current occupant of the White House.

“If she were able to absorb Romney into her fold, then the primaries would in effect be over. Palin / Romney is more than the current pack of gnomes, dwarves and wee folk would be able to contest.”

The cure is worse than the disease. Keep in mind that if elected, mittens would be one haertbeat away from being POTUS. Too risky. Better to simply defeat him in the primaries and take her chances in the general.

If she needs a progressive republican, and I can’t fathom why, then she should pick someone like rudy who won’t go dashing to his manpurse for tissues the first time someone gets nasty with him.

...her VP will be her friend Gov. Perry from Texas.

That would be a major strategic error on her part, in my opinion.

Just the thought of letting another Texas Governor get that close to the presidency so soon after GWB, would be a deal breaker for many Americans.

Sad, but true.

Palin/Ryan 2012

I think this bus tour is a test — not a full campaign yet. She is going to see if she can change the poll numbers by focusing more national attention on her candidacy. If the poll numbers move into winning territory, she will run. If not, she will have focused the primaries to a few candidates and will support one that closely matches her positions. If that person runs, she will take on a cabinet role, probably in Energy or Commerce.

She cannot afford to lose twice.

Palin/Romney? That's a terrible idea!

I'm so sick of the conventional wisdom that a ticket needs to be "balanced". Screw that. Palin should pick another conservative to run with her and if she does so, she will roll to an easy victory.

Romney screwed the pooch by inflicting socialized health care upon the long-suffering people of Massachusetts. He deserves no place on a GOP ticket.
