Palin Rattles the Cage (talk of a late entry?)
Time ^ | 12/19/2011 | Mrrk Halpern

Posted on 12/19/2011 12:50:50 PM PST by Rational Thought

In Fox Business Network interview, ex-Alaska Guv plays coy on whether she's still mulling a presidential bid.

Palin: "It's not too late for folks to jump in. Who knows what will happen in the future."

Perhaps she’ll run as a second party candidate against the Obama/Romney ticket...

It looks like the Establishment guys are really nervous about their inability to sell Romney, and might want to bring a back-up in like Jeb Bush. Whatever. The whole primary process has turned into a cross between a demolition derby and a Marx Brothers movie, and they have no one to blame but themselves.

While I like Trump more than most people here, do you think there is a snowball’s chance that he would ever be #2 on ANYONE’s org chart?

I would love to have seen her debate them too- but I cannot imagine her sitting through 10 of these, with the mind-numbingly stupid libtard questions they were being asked.

I would have expected her to walk out 15 minutes into the 2nd or 3rd one saying “I’ve had enough of this fudge”

I also envisioned Gingrich doing exactly what he is doing- sticking it to the media so much that he rises to the top (so I know I am probably right about Palin too)

Oh please, oh please, oh please! It would be like setting off a nuclear bomb in newsrooms across the nation! Not to mention the way the other candidates have managed to tear each other apart, she would go in with about 50% of the vote.

Why? The party sets nearly all the rules, and all of them enable and empower the party, not necessarily the candidate. It’s about time the voter had something to say about who gets a nomination, and when.

Most likely, if she were to run, she’d have announced by now.

I would vote for her in a heartbeat if her hat were in the ring.

The "very beginning" these days is about three years before the actual election (although Romney has been running since about 2006). That rubs me the wrong way. I think people ought to be able to "jump in" at any time it appears that there is an opening.

This is just Slime magazine invoking the name of Palin for a bump in circulation.

Any relationship between anything that appears in Slime magazine and the truth is purely coincidental.

A video of the interview will be posted for those who don't receive Fox Business News.

Granted. The primary season is too long anyhow; but I want to see a candidate make a commitment and that is just my notion on the candidates. But your point is well taken.

If she does this now she is nothing but a politcal whore. She will not get my vote. I was a staunch Palin supporter. She plays this game and it is over for me.

I am not going to be played like this. Thompson, Palin and Cain I contributed. Not again. I want a winner and I want to get this Communist out of the White House.

Go Newt!

She is not going to run. Even if she did, she would be ground down. I just don’t want to see that happen. I respect her and want her to take care of her son and her daughters without the media craziness. But of course, it is her choice and if she feels the calling, then who am I to question that. And she would not win. Not because I would not vote for her, because I might, but because of who she is seen as by the media and the establishment. And you know exactly what I mean.

The GOP currently has zero viable constitutional conservative candidates.
If Sarah runs, even as a 3rd party candidate, I will vote for her.

It is already over if she doesn't play, so it is a win-win, or lose-lose depending on your perspective I guess.

LOL, sounds like the RealityTV show might not be getting many bites, time to pretend she might run for President again to gin up some interest.

Palin is not running for President. It’s just not going to happen.

I agree, but would the country even accept the kind of reform/transparency and genuine constitutional conservatism that Palin would provide? The country has become too broken, too corrupt, too degenerate. Just like the GOP itself.

Sarah has never addressed the reconsider movement. Not even on her FB page where they post prolifically. They’re spending money on ads and tv spots and she hasn’t told them to stop. THAT still gives me hope that she’s thinking about it. Otherwise she could just say, “Sorry. Please don’t spend any more of your money. I’m not running.” She has the platform to do that, but hasn’t. Hmmmm.

“Damn, I’dda loved to see her debate these other candidates”

While Sarah has improved her speaking ability, I think her knowledge on issues is lacking. I don't think she has spent all this time studying.

I still love her and think she would be a great decision maker. You get the geeks to give you the pros & cons and make a decision. No need to BE a geek. BUT, I'm not confident about Sarah's debating skills. She didn't do well with Katy Couric or Charlie Gibson. (Those were debates, by the way).

I don't think Palin will jump in, but I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else try for it.

Jeb Bush? Haley Barbour? Mitch Daniels?

I'd vote for any of them over Romney.
