  • Sarah Palin to rally conservative online army

    The conservative blogosphere has yet to move past the death of patron saint Andrew Breitbart, but it will get a major jolt this month from an equally provocative hero: Sarah Palin. The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee has committed to delivering the keynote address at Right Online, the annual gathering of conservative bloggers and online activists organized by the Koch-backed non-profit group Americans for Prosperity Foundation. The June 15-16 conference will be the first time the event is held on a different weekend and in a different city from the liberal online activism conference upon which...
  • Influence of Palin and Tea Party Wanes in Early Contests (I hope they actually believe that!)

    The New York Times ^ | February 2, 2012 | Michael D. Shear
    In October, Sarah Palin announced that she would not run for president in 2012, ending the media frenzy around her potential candidacy even as she vowed to remain politically active and influential. “I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets,” she wrote in an e-mail to her supporters. Just over three months later, her attempts to wield influence in the presidential campaign the way she did during the 2010 midterm elections have largely fizzled. And the Tea Party movement that she helped to turn into a powerful political force in 2010 has so far displayed little impact...

    It’s tempting to get distracted with the horse race aspect of electoral politics during a primary season. But as pundits talk about “who’s up and who’s down” in the 24 hour news cycle, we must keep our eye on the ball with the Obama administration. They rely on distraction to skirt responsibility, but we’re going to hold them accountable for their corruption and incompetence. When the stories about Operation Fast and Furious first broke, it sounded too crazy even for this administration. Why would any government official with an ounce of common sense think it’s a good idea to facilitate...

    Sarah Palin cannot win if she runs as a third party. I’m inclined to believe that for all the reasons previously listed, most notably that she would “split” the GOP vote with Romney between conservatives and moderates, thus handing the election to Barack Obama. But astonishingly, there is a path to POTUS for her and it is much less far-fetched than one would think. The other day, Sarah was talking about this being an “unconventional” campaign. What I am writing here, should this strategy come to fruition would fit that definition nicely. Well, at least it’s more believable than the...

    There is a familiar aphorism among Palinistas and right-wing blogs that Sarah Palin plays chess while everyone else plays checkers. I agree. What I would like to do is illustrate how Sarah Palin is playing chess so deftly, what moves she plans to make once she enters the presidential race (the political lay of the land) and at the same time explain the deficiencies in the chess game prowess and execution of Mitt Romney and how these deficiencies may lead to his eventual downfall in the GOP primaries. In interest of full disclosure I am one of the worst chess...

    There is a great line in "Godfather III" where the businessman/mob boss Don Lucchesi says, "Finance is a gun. Politics is knowing when to pull the trigger." In politics, timing is everything. And for Sarah Palin, the hammer is cocked, the round is chambered, and she appears ready to make the decision on whether or not to drop the hammer and launch her campaign: Sarah Palin has left Iowa, her "One Nation" bus tour stopping in Saturday at the birthplace of Ronald Reagan in Dixon, Ill., but looking back on her whirlwind visit to the Iowa State Fair on Friday,...

    The New York Slimes today published an editorial witht the premise that Bush hates Perry and vica versa...ok, I don't necessarily care about what the MSM thinks or is agitating to undermine us. But I am intrigued and curious as to the truth of such "rivalry". What is the real story on this? Bush did spend too much money. Do Bush and therefore Rove both hate Perry? Is there really a rivalry? Will Bush endorse Perry with any VP namely (IMHO) Palin? or Bachman? I believe if Bush doesn't endorse him/them (and I am predicting Perry runs, obviously - and...

    When Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” was released in late 2009, people around the country stood in line for hours to meet her at book signings, and to shake her hand and ask her to run for president in 2012. And this was after the MSM had spent nearly a year and half dragging her and her family through the mud, accusing Palin of every misdeed imaginable, and going out of their way to remind us how unprepared Palin was for the vice presidency (according to MSM standards of course). From the release of “Going Rogue” through the November 2010 elections,...

It doesn't have Buddy Roemer or America's Mayor, but there is an "other options. So, let's see who would get the nomination if it were up to Free Republic!

    With Mike Huckabee's exit from the race, Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin are now on top of the Republican field, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. Twenty percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters say they'd support the former Massachusetts governor, while 18 percent say they'd support the former Alaska governor. Newt Gingrich comes in third place with 11 percent. In the April 15-20 poll, Huckabee had 16 percent (tied with Donald Trump). Romney had 13, Palin had 10. While Romney and Palin now share the top spot, Gallup's positive intensity tracking shows Republicans feeling less enthusiastic about their two...

We have one who has beautiful hair, a nice figure, perfectly manicured face and hands against Sarah Palin.

    Been doing some thinking. Recently there has been in this poster's opinion, a lot of focus in these parts on what I might frankly describe as Alinsky tactics. First saw them last election cycle, when the "Mittens" worked to sabotage Palin. (IMHO) Well it seems some are still focusing on that politics of personal destruction meme.

    With Mike Huckabee out of the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, three known politicians, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Newt Gingrich emerge as leaders in Republicans' preferences... Palin's support is more intense. A higher percentage of Republicans have strongly favorable opinions than is the case for the other two, giving her a slightly higher overall Positive Intensity Score despite her higher strongly unfavorable percentage. Gingrich and Romney have similar Positive Intensity Scores. ...There is no clear front-runner in the race for the 2012 Republican nomination.

    In light of Mike Huckabee's announcement that he was not running in 2012, I thought it would be appropriate to compare presidential prospects of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney in respect to gaining the nomination and how well they each might do in the general election if either one was the GOP nominee. So with that in mind here are 10 points to consider: 1) From David Bernstein: a) Of the 28 caucuses and primaries that Mitt Romney competed in up to and including Super Tuesday in 2008 he finished worse than second in 6 races--happened to be in six...

    I took a much needed break this weekend with friends and family and so I wasn’t around to blog the big news. Mike Huckabee is out of the running for the Presidential nomination. Now, I said as early as February 22nd that I was betting Huckabee wouldn’t run. So I’m happy to have a winning prediction under my belt. But besides that, this really shakes up the calculus for 2012. Iowa is now going to be wide open, and it leaves the “not Mitt Romneycare” position as one much easier to fill. The question is, who does this benefit? Palin?...

    Gallup keeps bringing the hits. Today it has a breakdown of early Republican primary polls by the top issues among potential voters. First the qualification: Primary polls this early are poor indicators of results. At this point in 2007, Rudy Giuliani led the GOP field and Hillary Clinton had a virtual lock on the Democratic nomination. But these polls do show us something about how the candidates are viewed, and whom they appeal to. With that said, there are some notable results here. Mitt Romney still does badly among those who social issues as the biggest issue in 2012, as...

    Sarah Palin blasted the Obama administration's handling of the Egypt crisis on Saturday in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. "This is that 3 a.m. White House phone call, and it seems for many of us trying to get that information from our leader in the White House, it seems that that call went right to the answering machine." Palin's reference to a 3 a.m. phone call referred to the 2008 bruising primary battle between now-President Obama and now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over responsiveness to unexpected foreign policy crises. In the CBN interview, which was conducted Friday immediately...

    We haven't had any formal announcements from Republican candidates yet-- and it appears that we may have to wait a while from that. We've heard rumblings on who will run and it appears to be a fair share of people-- but only one can get the nomination. It would appear that non-official exploratory committees are already formed and people like Romney, Pawlenty, and others are criss-crossing the country, particularly to Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire. So let's take a look at some of the signs of the start of the 2012 Presidential Cycle: Robert Gibbs is leaving the White...
