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

If Newt picks Sarah Palin as his VP it is likely the only way I would vote for him.

Sarah Palin’s endorsement. Hmmmm...a very important topic. I'm going to get to it right after I solve the dilemma of Ginger versus Maryanne.

Sarah will not be anybody’s VP. The reason she and the TEA party are running silent right now is to deny the state run media the targets it so desperately needs.

Some serious Sun Tzu rules of warfare hands are being played now.

Palin will endorse, campaign for and actively support whoever wins the GOP nomination. Period. Even if that person is Romney the chameleon.

She is the most respected political figure amongst the Conservative base. Judging by your posts, you obviously harbor some sort of hatred towards her.

Here’s what I think, she will not support anyone in the republican party.

At some point she will run under the TEA Party banner and we will bury the Republican Socialist Party once and for all, they can all join the democrat socialist party..

I don’t respect her decisions or think that she is particularly bright or presidential material or that I object to the way she played you guys, you’d be on the right track.

“No one. She will be nominated at the convention to be the nominee; and go on to trounce Obama in November.”

20% is not going to get anyone a majority of delegates so there is a good chance of a wide open convention and when Sarah throws her hat in the ring it will be sheer pandemonium.

Sarah Palin: GOP Race Is Going To Come Down To ‘Romney Vs. The Non-Romney’

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.

Americans really want a true-blooded American political leader, man or woman, who is a strong conservative and is consistent in word and deed. The only one I can see is Sarah. The others are just overtly RINOs or RINOs in conservative clothing who will show their true colors after they are elected. Conservatives are tired of that crap.

Best to let the Dem-bulbs have the election and let them run the country further into the ground. What are they going to do? Blame Bush? Most people see right through that. I think Sarah was wise in waiting until 2016 because by then the Dems will have screwed up things so much worse than present that the electorate will practically drag her into the White House whether she likes it not.

IIRC, while Sarah was considering running, she said her decision would depend on whether or not someone she agreed with and could support was running.

Seeing as she chose not to run, we can only conclude that someone she fully supports is in the race, and will, therefore, receive her endorsement.

It may be surprising. I was stunned when Ann Coulter endorsed Mitt Romney.

Have you seen this clip of “conservative candidate” Bachmann? There’s a thread on it here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2812319/posts

I can’t wait ‘til Herman Cain is asked what he thinks about the Gingrich solution, i.e.,

control the border
guest worker program
review board
deportation in specific cases
very severe penalties for employers

Do you think Mr. Cain will say that wholesale mass deportation is practical and fair, and that individual review is not? Do you think he’s against very severe penalties for employers of illegals? Do you think he will denounce the guest worker program and vow there would be none in a Cain administration? There are guest workers in the US now, and have been for decades — including during the Eisenhower years. Somehow I don’t envision Mr. Cain taking on that fight, but perhaps you do?

Let the Dems have the country another four years. Then you say the people will turn to conservatives? If the majority of the people aren’t on the federal dole by then and willing to vote for Donald Duck as long as he’s a Dem, I’d be surprised. If the people were to turn to conservatives after four more years of Obama, it will be one who sounds more like George Lincoln Rockwell than Sarah Palin. Either of those scenarios I’d rather not see.

Why should I? Do I owe you anything? When did it become my job to satisfy your curiosity? What will I gain? What will I lose? Will my family love me more? Will they love me less? Will I become taller, better looking, richer? What is your compelling argument?

So far the only reason you've given is so that some anonymous internet denizen can decide whether or not I have credibility in his eyes. And that person has already shown spectacular lack of discernment in being played by a political charlatan who was clearly (based on actual effort expended) far more interested in cashing in than in running.

They have so rigged the process that the likelihood of a brokered convention is nil. i like you thought, but in the end I fear we will have a choice of the Marxist or the Marxist light candidate.

We are actually in a battle against self, how can we win?

I think Herman Cain will secure our border first, and then take actions with the illegals already here. I don’t think Cain will insult Conservatives by implying that many have “inhumane” stances when it comes to the issue. I think he’s the best candidate, and would be the strongest President, on illegal immigration that our nation has seen in decades. I like that he’s not tied to the Republican establishment, because they seem to pressure Republicans to be weak on the immigration issue for reasons unknown to me. I’ll take someone completely new with Herman Cain.

I think it can be argued Primary threads are where undecideds should go, yet there was a suggestion undecideds should butt out. For example, I am undecided among what appears to be a field of either unelectable or deeply flawed or distinctly non-conservative candidates. Shouldn't I read and participate in "Primary threads?" Or is this just discussion groups for a bunch of sports teams?

Oh, of course un-decideds should be on Primary threads, but at least bring an inkling of whom you might be considering supporting instead of having the luxury of bashing candidates who you HAVE REASONS NOT TO SUPPORT but can’t enunciate the candidate who extols those characteristics you DO support.
