Who Will Sarah Palin Endorse?
Yahoo! News ^ | Nov 23, 2011 | Mark Whittington

Posted on 11/25/2011 11:24:58 AM PST by presidio9

The most sought-after endorsement of this political cycle will be from a woman who holds no political office and is not currently seeking one. That is why each of the Republican candidates have done the equivalent of kissing Sarah Palin's ring.

RealClearPolitics believes that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has the inside track for getting the Palin endorsement. Of course, reports about what Palin will or will not do is largely conjecture, even if it is sourced from people said to be within the Palin inner circle. Only Palin will know who she intends to endorse and when. Any definitive statement that does not cite her personally as a source should be taken with a grain of salt.

The criteria Palin will use to determine who to endorse will be who will be best for the country, in her judgment, and only secondarily who will be best for her own political fortunes. Palin has some definite ideas about how the United States should be governed, particularly in the suppression of honest graft in the congress and crony capitalism. Whomever is best suited to advance her agenda will get her endorsement.

Not one of the current candidates are perfectly suited for Palin's likely criteria. Romney is too squishy. Perry has been accused of practicing crony capitalism as governor of Texas. Herman Cain, while likely appealing to Palin, has stumbled since the sexual harassment allegations. Gingrich himself has been in politics for decades and

One gauge on the value of Sarah's endorsement:
If her film, ‘Undefeated’, was playing at a theater for free, I'd skip it. And I was one of her biggest fans. But I listen to this several times a day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe_59zFA0Ec

It’s easy to bash all of them when you don’t much like any of them. Your point is well taken. And I saw what was said about “concern trolls.” They exist. But so do people who are honestly not decided. If you have a candidate you like, these are the folks you want to talk to in a positive way, without trashing the other candidates.

Me? “I don’t much like any of them” is where I am. But I try not to pile on the negatives for the different ones I don’t much like. It takes an effort but I stay away from the flames. (This is not my historical behavior. LOL)

She won’t decide until after the nomination.

She has a track record of doing the opposite of what you just said.

Sarah Palin will most likely endorse Rick Perry.

Didn't Palin imply that Perry was part of the crony capitalism problem? At least that's what you Perry gals were complaining about several weeks back.

Would not call myself a Perry gal. He is my choice for the nomination.

I never complained about an implication made by Sarah Palin about "crony capitalism"

Happy Thanksgiving!

You spelled RINO wrong...

Sloppy on my part for lumping you into a group of posters instead of dealing with you and your post individually.

Anyway, my point remains about Palin endorsing Perry for the nomination. I don't think it will happen

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope your Thanksgiving went well.

I love it when the grammar Nazis show up. LOL! Be sure to include a link for that particular grammar rule you are correcting us on. It’s one thing to show us but another to explain it in complete detail.

Why, I'd be happy to provide you with that particular grammar rule! Feel free to skip the dry stuff at the top and skip down to the quick and dirty tip. Once I learned that tip, I never had to think through that grammar rule again.

Allow me to address one more error; my initial correction was directed at Mark Whittington, the author of the piece. (I believe a journalist should know the tools of his craft.) Where you got the idea that I was correcting the grammar of people on this thread is a mystery to me.

Thanks for the tip. That finally answers my question on when to use “who”/”whom” correctly.

I thought you were correcting a FReeper, not Whittington.

Again, feel free to give us a good grammar correction when needed. The website link you provided has some great info on it.

I don’t think she will endorse anyone. However, if she was going to, I think it would be Newt or Herman (I don’t know which would be first).

Who Will Sarah Palin Endorse?
Who cares. I don't. And she should keep quiet about it as well.
She can tell everybody who she voted for after the election.

Not at all. Since none of the candidates are as conservative as her they probably don’t meet her minimum standard for what a Pubbie candidate should be therefore she isn’t going to endorse any of them.

Golly but you Palin fanatics have the worst case of selective amnesia on the web! You're talking about a woman who rose to national prominence as the VP candidate for John McCain. And don't give me any lip about the governor planning to make the conservative difference in a center-right White House. Either she had the principle you are bestowing on her now, or she never had it.

Glad you like the site. I keep it bookmarked both at home and at work, and it has served me well.

I'm thinking that, to protect her own political fortunes for the future, Sarah will not endorse during the Primary. I'm sure that, unlike many other Conservatives, she wants Obozo defeated so badly, she will endorse, and vote for, the GOP nominee; even if he/she is not her first choice. But, I don't look for her to endorse during the Primary.

If she endorses Cain, Bachman, or even Perry, I will still love her (in a political sense), endorsing anyone else (currently in the race), would mean she is just a tease, my love for her would die.
Read you tagline PoloSec. I'm so glad that Christ's love for us doesn't "die" every time we do something He does not agree with. Oh, but, God's love is unconditional and many Conservatives' love is conditional and cheap, going to the highest bidder. I forgot.
