Sarah Palin teases on CNN tonight.

"I don't discount any idea or plan that, at this point, isn't in my control. Anything's possible.

.... I would seriously consider whatever I can do to help our country."

That doesn’t do much for us now, does it?

I don’t think people will be fooled by her running for president again.

I watched it. She didn’t tease, she simply answered the damn question.

I hope that she’ll be elected to the U.S. Senate, in 2014 and ‘20. She could be elected president in 2024 or ‘28.

You’re piling on for no reason, because you didn’t watch the vid. She was asked a question, and as is typical for Sarah P. she didn’t give a canned non-response. What exactly would you do if you had a mic stuck in your face and you wanted to remain irrelevant? Hate on Sarah P., but be fair occasionally, she will be crucial in the coming months, regardless of whether she runs or not.

Right, absolutely right. If Obama wins re-election, America will be completely changed by 2016. The whole country will be on the dole, and a conservative won't have a chance.

She had her chance and left everyone high and dry. Im tired of her popping up on tv every few months to stay relevant. You turned your back on the country when it needed you most. So dont do us any more favors.

Another four years of Idi Obama, there won’t be a United States of America to run in.

I do not believe Palin is a Romney supporter. She could have changed the course of these primaries and decided to not endorse.

Seems to me she did just endorse, why is this the first time she’s effectively throwing herself in? Because she doesn’t like the way these primaries came out and has little confidence in Romney and Santorum. Just the way I see it, so bots don’t bother if you’re just going to be nasty.

Palin in 2016 implies that Zerodamus will win in 2012..
Pretty accurate to be honest..

NO NEWT in 2012 is a Zerodamus WIN... UNless
Santo picks Newt as VeeP..

Which probably won’t happen because Santo and Willard are owned by the Unions.. even tho Newt is such a whore..

Newt has pissed off the Union parasites..
Which Union members are parasites?...
ALL OF THEM...

She’s plenty relevant now, IMHO.

There was no better speech at CPAC this year. She’s a fighter, with more guts than most “conservative” men.

She’s been taking the fight to the libs since she came out as a VP candidate in ‘08. She didn’t hide when everyone else was licking wounds after ‘08.

She and Gingrich both know how to fight, unlike the panty-waists.

In 2016, against an incumbent Republican. It would be a good thing to for an elected RINO to have a Palin threatening to challenge if he betrays the people that elected him.

If she endorses Santorum tomorrow the timing would be perfect, and probably tip the election to him. Then, like so many other times in her past, people will marvel at her wisdom. I don’t see her making many mistakes, and yet she gets slammed by some no matter what she does. Sarah P. deserves better from supposed fellow-travelers. Godspeed Sarah P. always. She is great because she is good.

I wonder what RINO will have *his turn* in 2016? We had Dole in 1996, Bush Jr. in 2000, McCain in 2008 and Romney this year (likely). So who will it be in 2016? Boehner?

She's probably waiting for all the older kids to get out of the house...and to grow a few grey hairs.

She will be served much better in a POTUS campaign to be seen as a battle scarred veteran with a whole lotta "we should have listened to her instead of SNL" behind her.

Still, we could use her now. Of course I would like to see her endorse Gingrich...but it's likely she sees her ultimate obligation this time as the single endorsement that puts the eventual winner over the top and adds a unifying influence to the party.

Damn, this party is so split right now...historically split (Like the Goldwater split in 64)...that it's amazing Obama is even fund raising. It breaks my heart to say it but I believe even independents are embarrassed FOR us. They have to be. We may have lost the ability to be embarrassed for ourselves.

The big winners tonight appear to be Romney and Santorum.

How much worse can it possibly GET?

"I do not believe Palin is a Romney supporter. "

Palin will endorse the eventual GOP nominee on the floor of the Tampa convention...and be the final voice you hear before the nominee takes the stage.

Politics is a monstrous sport that forces you to eat a lot of sh!t to get a major party nomination.

Even Ronald Reagan had to eat a couple of stinkin' piles before he got his shot.

The 1976 primaries against Ford and the way it ended dropped several million to the floor weeping.

2016 will be too late.
She’ll be in a gulag and there will only one ‘party’.

That's not going to happen. The only way Santorum gets a Palin endorsement is on the convention floor.

She's a Western small (l) libertarian from the Goldwater School. She would be more likely to endorse Gingrich or Paul before the outcome is known.

Governor Palin, several MILLION of us out here, wish you would have thought about that, about six months ago.

So do something about it.

Stop hesitating. America needs you.

Not later.

NOW.

If zero wins there won’t be much chance for Sarah to run. I don’t trust what he will do to the country, or Christians and/or Conservatives, by then.

Who are they going to send to arrest her? It will be a very hazardous undertaking.

Palin has become nothing but a flirt and tease. I don’t take her seriously anymore.
