Skip to comments.Palin Rattles the Cage (talk of a late entry?)
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."

Airs tonight on Fox Business, 10 eastern.
Damn, I’dda loved to see her debate these other candidates.
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.
I love Sarah Palin but I don’t like people not jumping in from the very beginning. Just rubs me the wrong way.
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)
A new reality show?
I really don't like the idea of candidates who do this kind of c*ap.
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.
Any relationship between anything that appears in Slime magazine and the truth is purely coincidental.
10:00PM Eastern, 9:00 Centeral, 7:00 Pacific.
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.
WOW!!!!...Dream come true?... Did Gov Sarah Palin leave the door open for a White House run?.... 10p et FBN... seriously!!!
At least Time isn't making things up.
Just a tease to keep stringing along her old fans.
Snap that garter one more time, Sarah!
BTW—she looks like hell lately.
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.
If God still loves America, Palin will run and be president.
She would beat everybody hands down.
Todd is an awesome man of God. If David Letterman would have talked about my daughter like that
HE WOULD HAVE HAD A KNUCKLE SANDWICH ON TV
AND BEEN SWALLOWING TEETH.
GO GINGRICH, INDEED!!!!
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.
How could anyone jump into the Republican primary and have a chance of winning if he or she doesn’t qualify for the ballot in the early primary states?
She’s not running.
Palin is precisely what the country needs..and what the RinoCrat UniParty can’t abide.
You can ask that question, even if you know the answer is "no."
It is already over if she doesn't play, so it is a win-win, or lose-lose depending on your perspective I guess.
She is not running and good for her. She and her family do not need the media circus that would start bashing them again.
I do not want to see that.
Trump is at best a RINO, but he is for sure a liberal....
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.
Palin has almost got the stink of Juan McLaim OFF HER..
Wallowing in Trump perspiration.. is a BAD IDEA... H.E.L.L.O.!!
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.
Newt’s numbers are sinking like rock though.
Newt’s numbers are sinking like a rock though.
There you go again, trying to confuse the Freepers that still think we get a real say in the choice.
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.
It’s not too late LOL
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).
Now that the NBA lock-out has been settled.
Jeb Bush? Haley Barbour? Mitch Daniels?
I'd vote for any of them over Romney.
She would not win in a debate against Gingrich.
In before the “she’s a quitter”, looking for attention,,, blah blah blah posts...
