Posted on 12/07/2011 8:31:09 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin is urging Republican presidential candidates to take part in the Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate moderated by Donald Trump.
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate made her endorsement in an interview to air Wednesday night on the Fox Business Network. Palins endorsement is the latest high-profile conservative to support the debate set for Dec. 27.
"I think candidates should not be afraid in front of the nation no matter who the host of the debate is, Palin said. What is a bit appealing about this idea of Trump hosting a debate is, consider the diverse audience that perhaps he can attract. It's important that independents and those who are not obsessed with inside-baseball partisan politics, which is most of us, we'd like to hear more of the message of each one of these candidates and perhaps Donald Trump will be able to attract a diverse demographic that maybe has not been as interested in this horse race thus far.
"America needs to wake up to what is going on under Obama's socialist policies and how he will bankrupt the country. I'm looking at the debate as a positive thing because of that fact."(continued)

Wow, deep. Let me throw a couple facts at you,
1. Obama is destroying and finishing off the US.
2. Sarah Palin continually attacks him in front of millions of people often hi-lighting areas where we can stop him.
3. Losers make derisive comments towards Palin instead of cheering on one of the most successful conservatives out there.
4. You defend them.
if not enough candidates show up that day to make it interesting,
YOU should get permission to go there and debate there too,
just on principles, not that you’re a candidate.
Trump might let you join as a Tea Party spokesperson, it would boost ratings,
and any RINOs (present or not present) could be ripped to shreds, by you of course.
I disagree. Trump cheapens the debate to a reality tv show. Very stupid move for the candidates.
I hope they all decline.
Every left-wing outfit short of Daily Kos, SEIU and the New Black Panthers has sponsored a Republican debate, but now Donald Trump “cheapens” the process?
You and others can mock all you want but it’s a legit opinion that Sarah got complacent and wasn’t up for the fight with our country on the line. If McCain won would she have opted out of the second term? My conclusion is she made a fortune and all of a sudden a lot of the fight went out of the grizzly. Of course she’s entitled to her actions. I just can’t get excited about her anymore. And I know many other conservatives who feel the same way. (Now quickly go to my profile and find out I’m relatively new and therefore I must be a troll.)
I agree. It also seems sadly obvious to me that a sufficient number of Americans are never going to wake up in time to the ominous hidden undercurrents of how power is actually exercised by the establishment.
Things are now at or near the culmination or end game status of certain agendas and nothing or no one will be allowed to endanger that. Decades of incremental, positional jockeying are over and ALL options are now on the table to deal with any obstacles.
Hey, at least you moved on from making fun of kid’s with down’s syndrome. Congratulations. How about calling those folks you supposedly ‘grew up’ near and telling them your joke about someone with an extra chromosome. Think they’ll laugh?
You are the one here craving attention. Go take care of your emotional issues, eat your salad with your whine and grow up.
Exactly. He’s afraid - now he’s with the big league and no one to cover for him. His one-minute snippets of telling us we need jobs and he’s the man to do it - does play with grown ups. Next we will read smears about Trump! This is how wussy know nothing Mitt runs a campaign.
What’s your problem - your prefer the commie media to do the debates? Talk about a dumb bulb. Trump is interested in our country - how novel that ‘We the People’ take our rightful place and push the media aside.
Thank you for the video link! She’s the best - no doubt about it.
Donald isn’t worth anyone’s time, but I’m sure he’ll be appeased.
I don’t know what kind off sauce you’re on, but it might be wise to take a break
Makes me smile a little.
Works for me, considering your remarks
Trump has said that if none of the candidates impress him, he would run. So he wants the candidates to try to convince him not to run? I’m not sure why Sarah would condone this.
That said, me personally, I liked the set up with the AG's at the other debate/forum, and would like to see something similar.
How about one with Palin, DeMint, McConnell (he is the senate republican leader), Bohner (since he is the speaker), Tom Tancredo and some other republicans (preferably of the conservative tea party stripe).....Ask the candidate questions, give them time to answer, do back and forth exchanges, almost like a senate hearing for each of them, and let them interact with each other.
Granted, its unconventional and unorthodox, but its something that would bring out the best or worst and separate the bs from the gold.
What part about Obama, Pelosi, and Reid did Donald Trump not get just 1 year ago when Trump supported Harry Reid?
Someone should put the Reid support question to Trump and makes him answer for being politically bipolar?
