    If Sarah is flirting, I was seduced a long time ago! For everyone who doesn't want Romney, this is huge! It's only in the modern era that Presidential nominations have been locked up before most American voters even tuned in. So this year, for the nation, the Republican Primary is kind of a return to older times, when all Americans counted, not just the few power brokers. The race has been a very rich blue blood from New England ( where he would not carry one state in the general election ) and a group of three, Newt, Rick and...
  • Sarah Palin Could Run....And Win

    Many have truly lost interest in the Republican primary and its "candidates." None appear fully acceptable, all have major faults and excess baggage that could easily cause them to lose to an absolutely unre-electable sitting president. While polls are often flawed and many are absolutely biased, I have seen a consistent trend that any particular GOP candidate VS Obama consistently loses, given a choice between "Any Republican" and Obama, the Republican wins handily. What this means is that the majority of voters, about 75% in the GOP in fact, are totally unhappy with the choices offered. It is my considered...

    Pundits who once pronounced Republican voters satisfied with the field of presidential contenders may have spoken too soon. Herman Cain’s difficulties in handling a flurry of sexual harassment accusations–albeit launched by an overzealous, unfair mainstream media–have shaken confidence in his candidacy. Gov. Mitt Romney’s increasingly bold policy pronouncements may be too little, too late to convince the conservative base. Gov. Rick Perry seems to have faded, and Newt Gingrich’s recent rise may not be big enough to establish him as the latest alternative to Romney. The other candidates are still trying to break into double digits, but aside from Ron...

    Take with a HUGE grain of salt… Huge. Conservative talk show host, Dr Gina Louden, says that she has “information from a reliable source,” that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is reconsidering a run for the White House in 2012. Sarah Palin announced on October 5, that she would not be running in 2012 and that she would not run third party. With the recent fire storm that has hit Herman Cain about sexual harassment charges and with Romney being a complete RINO, a Palin entrance would be pretty awesome right now. You can listen to audio of Dr. Gina...

    My first and probably last vanity. Picture a crowd of people gathered for a political rally. The speaker gives out the old bromide "Why are we here?" The crowd replies in a frenzy. "We want change!" Is this Occupy or a college campus? No, it's Free Republic. Let's face it, we all admire our favorite candidates in the Republican field. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, don't we all. The real problem is that they're unable to differentiate themselves from each other, in a defining manner. Considering the trampling of rights, unemployment, regulation, immigration, crime, education (lack of and...

Becky Beach, Palin’s top fundraiser in Iowa and a close friend who is usually kept in the loop on the former governor’s plans, told The Hill that she had not heard from Palin in weeks about whether or not she would run in 2012. “I don’t have any idea of her decision or her timing. The only thing I’ve heard her say is that...

    I saw the GOP debate and the Greta interview with Palin and Bachman. I am absolutely against Perry's mandate of the Gardasil vaccine. On policy grounds. Period. But, to see the two ladies pile on with corruption charges against Perry was truly disgusting. If they have any proof that Perry mandated the vaccine to profit Merck, I am the first one who wants it. And, if proof emerges that he did so, I will be the first one to revoke my support for him. It happens in the industry all the time. Acquaintances get you an audience. So, in this...

From Scott Conroy at RCP: Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs of her trip, aides had drafted preliminary itineraries that would have taken her through the Midwest and Southeast at some point this month. But those travel blueprints are now in limbo, RCP has learned, as Palin and her family have...

We are witnessing the slow but steady collapse of the US economic system that’s been in place since the end of WW2. Does anyone really think that gas prices won’t continue to rise?

    Coming off her week-long One Nation bus tour that was widely seen as a test-run for a presidential campaign, Sarah Palin says she’s starting to see that running for president might not be the best fit for her. “Not only do I love my freedom of not having a title and being a declared candidate — that is liberating — I know you can make a difference as an individual,” she said. “Hopefully, I can inspire others to know that you don’t need a title. You don’t need to be in office to effect positive change.”

    As reported by The Hill, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin met with FOX NEWS executives in New York. "Right now there is no change in her status with Fox News," said Bill Shine, the network's vice president of programming. "RIGHT NOW"! There are no details about the meeting obviously, but as is obvious from that quote, the door seems quite open to Palin making a run. All of the pundits have said she is not running and her worst critics have said she's just seeking attention. Sarah Palin has defied punditry on many occasions, so this could be the best...

    The Republican race to get the 2012 nomination has barely begun, yet it already has its fair share of casualties who have fallen by the wayside. First, there was Haley Barbour, the good ol' boy Mississippi governor, who was widely expected to run – even by his own staff – right up until the moment he pulled out. Then, Donald Trump's bizarre campaign fired itself. Finally, Mike Huckabee, who topped a lot of Republican polls and was favourite to win Iowa, declared: "All the factors say go, but my heart says no." Which leads one to wonder: who might be...

    Yesterday, when writing about the fallout from Mike Huckabee’s decision not to run for president, I picked Michelle Bachmann as the candidate who might benefit the most from this turn of events. But I also noted that this was predicated on Sarah Palin’s not running. The deathly quiet from her camp about a 2012 campaign is encouraging presidential hopefuls and pundits alike to think that she is staying out of the race. But it is also frustrating her fans. A visit to Conservatives4palin, one of her leading fan websites, shows that the former Alaska governor’s followers are still hoping that...

    I have observed that the polls and the news readers have taken to reminding us that Sarah Palin's nomination spells certain defeat for the GOP in 2012. Let's examine the question of Sarah Palin's prowess as a candidate, measured against the current field: It has been noted that former Senator Rick Santorum won his Senate seat in a big GOP year (1994) and lost it big in a Democrat year (2006), sweeping in with one tide and out with another. This is evidence of weakness as a candidate. Let's examine the rest of this field, using 2006 as the barometer....

    It is nearly May. Sarah Palin, once the darling of the political Right, still has not committed to running for president in 2012. Although she has a political action committee, she has yet to even formally announce a presidential exploratory committee. Some say she will; others say she won't. And Palin is as ambiguous as ever... It has been nearly a foregone conclusion that Sarah Palin would run for president in 2012, especially after her pronouncements alluding to just that after losing the 2008 national election as Sen. John McCain's running mate. But as campaign season has approached Palin has...

    The crop of 2012 Republican presidential candidates is about to expand, adding faces to one of the most varied—and muddled—GOP fields in decades. The lineup currently lacks a clear favorite to stir the GOP base, to the dismay of many in the party. A Gallup poll released Friday underscored an awkward situation facing the GOP. Two men who may not even run—Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump—tied for first among Republicans surveyed, with a scant 16% support apiece, while the presumed GOP favorite, Mitt Romney, came in second at 13%. The last GOP nominee to score under 20% in a Gallup...

It seems when it comes to Sarah Palin, people either love her or hate her and that could be her biggest obstacle in a Presidential run; she would need to win all those in the middle if she has any hope of winning. She would have to hope voters take her seriously, but she might not be given the chance to ever talk about the issues....

    Will she or won’t she run for President? I once laid out the reasons why Sarah Palin has a better shot of becoming president than Barack Obama did before Obama announced his candidacy during the 2008 election cycle. And while conventional wisdom among the chattering class continues to lean against Palin mounting a presidential run, Palin has been courting the conservative base while not alienating swing voters in swing states such as Ohio, Colorado, and Florida better than any potential GOP contender. Too often, those who cover Palin do not listen to her words or read her statements, Facebook postings,...

    In surfing the blogosphere, a person can encounter a divergence of opinion on Sarah Palin's viablity as a GOP candidate. Most of the polls at this stage match her against Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Many of them, including the Democrat poll, PPP, include Romney and Huckabee and fairly consistently place Romney in the lead in a three way race. Polls this early, even by reputable pollsters, are notoriously unreliable. I suggest that there is empirical data available at this point that strongly suggests that Palin could not be defeated either by Romney or Huckabee or anyone else in the...
