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."

In before the “she’s a quitter”, looking for attention,,, blah blah blah posts...
Yes, and you are clapping your hands that Mitten’s is about to become your guy. Thanks.
C’Mon, you knew the intent.
She was lucky to hold her own against Biden...and he's a certified moron.
I am a Palin believer. Sorry. She is probably the most ethical and amarican of the lot to include Oabama. I can only surmise from your remark that his second term would be fine with you. I hope to Heaven that is not the case. Palin has been the most vetted non-candidate or cadidate that I have ever seen in my 74 years. She is what you see. Given the choice of saving our republic or destuction of such by the liberals and Obama, I would hope that all americans would quiet the pettiness and do what is right. A vote not cast is a signal of surrender. I have 8 grandchildren that are counting on us.I’ll not surrender to evil.
She teased her poor supporters for 2 years and now that nobody's paying her any attention she's goiung to do it to them all over again. They'll never learn.
What makes you think you have the right to speak for God?
“Newts numbers are sinking like rock though....”
going just as planned...
Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media vet the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.
This election will be a non-election...featuring the state approved candidates-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.
It’ll be interesting to hear what Eric says on The Five at 5pm.
Lucy holds the ball once again.....watch Charlie Freeper Brown run up and take a mighty swipe at it...gee, I wonder what will happen...
I’m really not interested in Palin for President if she decides to throw in her hat again....and I don’t think she would do so. And I don’t especially like the idea she’s teasing about this to those who might see her remarks as indicating she would. It’s just another diversion to shake the primaries and there’s enough rocking that boat without adding Palin to the mix.
We’re beginning to look like fruitcakes with the Ron Paul Bots and the nonsense going on there....I wonder sometimes if we can be even taken seriously with all the theatrics and such....not just played by the media and hollywood...but by our own. It’s getting pretty disgusting.
Will we ever get behind one cnadidate and go for the gold! Sheesh! For me I’m staying with Newt....I’m not going to play in the sandbox some are attempting to make of this primary. He’s the most stable of all and that just settles it for me.
Be still my heart!
All I can say is GO SARAH, GO!!
Down the Corrupt System of Democrats and Whigs, we need a second party, and I am sure Sarah will hit it out of the ball park tonight like she always does!
Bookmarking for the video link.
Yep...that's where I'm at...not going to play their game ...it's Newt all the way to the finish line for me!
But she would kick the crap out of Romney.
I’d rather have her running for POTUS over these Milquetoast Moderate Pubbies any day!
Do you like candidates who have thrown crooked politicians in jail even if they were members of their own party? Do you think the country needs a lot of that right now?
Count me in too. Tough slogging through 13 debates...slammed by opponents and the press, Newt with his past accomplishments in government has earned it.
All the “real” conservatives have taken a beating in this campaign cluster-fu ... oops, watch the language ... demolition derby. Bachmann and Santorum are gasping for air, Herman stepped away and nobody wants to know anything about Huntsman.
That leaves Newt (ick), Romney (yawn) and Paul (yikes!). All of them are Washington insiders, to varying degrees, so the best we could hope for would be another “reach across the aisle” jerk-off. Again. That means our downward spiral would continue, albeit at a slightly slower pace.
I suspect Sarah was waiting to see how the race would shake out. If none of the “big change” types made any headway, then jump in and fix it. Sounds just like her, doncha think?
And if Sarah jumping in late offends your delicate sense of what’s “right” in a presidential candidate, then go lick the hand that sends you your gummint checks. A lot of us are ready to burn the ENTIRE BLEEPING PLACE DOWN and start over, so unconventional warfare should be the least of your worries. Do you wanna save the nation or bitch about guerrilla campaign tactics?
That being said ... what if Sarah jumps in as a “write-in” candidate? Everybody can spell “Palin” and the effect on both the Republicans and the press would be staggering. Or if she meets a few ballot deadlines and wins a few primaries, she could go to the convention with a light load of delegates, but a TON of others would long for the chance to vote for her nomination.
Seriously, folks ... look at what we’ve got left in the race. Any of you excited? Does anybody SERIOUSLY think one of these remaining clowns can save America, in the most important election of our lifetimes? Didn’t think so.
GO SARAH GO!! Do it. Time to change everything.
I doubt that she will run, but she would sure make an immediate impact!
I’ve set TIVO in case my husband plans to watch some football game that I fear is on tonight....LOL. (Monday Night Football).
I will go to the kitchen TV to watch Eric Bolling’s show.

It would be spelled O B A M A

I couldn’t agree more. These people who whine because she let them down and she didn’t participate in the debates, etc. are cutting off their nose to spite their face. She is the single best chance this country has to survive as a free republic. We need to rally behind her and forget that she hurt our feelings. A lot more than our feelings are at stake. People need to grow up.
The system that we use is not what the Founders wanted. They did not want political parties or national campaigns. Unfortunately political parties did emerge and their design lasted only 4 elections. Check out the history of the electoral college.
I wouldnt mind seeing DeMint get in but not Palin. She’s done.
Is the money stream dying out? The MSM ignored her once she declared she wasn’t running. It is as though she went into the witness protection program.
Newt with his past accomplishments in government has earned it.
Do you really trust anyone who has been in the cesspool as long as Newt? I know I don’t.

They are foul and if you spend time in them you risk becoming foul. Washington is foul and Newt has existed in the foulness for years. There is a very real chance that he has been tainted. I’d much prefer an outsider.
Palin/Trump, Good!!! Palin/Cain, Better!!!
It would be spelled O B A M A
Wow... I didn't know OBAMA was running for Republican nomination.... /s
I would write her in for the primary if she throws her hat in.
Wait, didn't Bob Dole earn it?
Offering voters another choice?
Palin was the shining star for me in the last Presidential Election. Now she seems to be playing games with everyone.
I simply don't care for this kind of politics. It's not another choice for me as a voter, it's just Sarah Palin flexing her sagging political capital.
Just how I feel about the whole situation.
I was a Herman Cain supporter and still have not determined who my candidate is - but if Sarah Palin gets in the race, it won't be her. As far as I am concerned, she's lost all her political capital with me and I think may other undecided.
So you're cool with our choices being limited to those candidates acceptable to the media and the establishment? Great. We'll never get out of the mess we're in if a majority of conservatives adopt that line of thinking.
That’s fine, support the candidate of your choice and work to get him/her the nomination. Palin entering the race shouldn’t affect you.
Karl, is that you?
Mixing it up a little. I like it.
But she would beat him in an election.
Yeah. We should just ignore her.
I of course have no idea whether she’ll jump in late, but had she jumped in early the press would have aimed exclusively at her and none of the other candidates would have been vetted.
She’s more than paid her dues, as has her family. If she figured the way she could run without dragging her family around for 18 months or needing to sell out to special interests in order to raise the cash she’d need, those are sufficient reasons for me.
“The system that we use is not what the Founders wanted.”
The government we have is everything they tried to prevent.
The timing is everything. It’s Sarah’s for the taking.
