Sarah Palin: Of course Iím interested in running for president
HOT AIR ^ | 23 JANUARY 2015 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Every other Republican in America is running. Why shouldn’t she? Right now the only woman in the field is, um, Carly Fiorina.

The headline’s a bit of a tease. As you’ll see, this is more of a “never say never” deflection than a “hell yes” statement of intent. I think she’s following the Trump strategy at this point: There’s no downside to hinting you might run even when you know you aren’t running.

She better get started soon if she’s gonna do it. 2016 looks to be a 20 person land rush and it will take a sh!tload of money to be competitive.

I’m tellin’ ya - a Caged Death Match between her and Hillary! will rake in millions!

I’m undecided. I love Sarah - but I lean more towards having her behind the scenes - maybe hold the RNC Chair? Ha! Like that’ll happen.

Besides, I fear for her life. Someone WOULD try to take her out; I’m convinced of that.

Who says she has to run as a Republican?

and it will take a sh!tload of money to be competitive.

She can raise a billion dollars within weeks.

She’s got the system already. I’ve supported SARAHPAC for quite some time now sending in gas money for her bus every few months. But she sold the bus, I guess, because she’s covering more ground faster now. If she buys another bus or a plane you’ll know she’s in.

“Carly Fiorina”

If that’s the best we can do we might as well give up...

That may be true, but a gazillion people would guard her 25/8 for free if she was POTUS

obola is the one I figure will not die of old age.

Wow that's impressive. Had no idea. I thought she had to quit as governor of Alaska because of the cost of legal defense. The defense fund collected less than $400,000.

I believe a Republican nominees should be chosen by the “smokey back room” instead of the popularity contest that has given us so many losers in the past.

Sarah? I’d vote for her in a heart beat!

Well Sarah Palin is attracting people bigtime this week, on Facebook.

And climbing...

Currently 4,502,900. Still rising.

Alright, so maybe not a billion.

But do tell me more about the awesome donation-inspiring capabilities of Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney.

Sarah could bury either of those, and just about anyone else on the right you can name.

And it wouldn't require a billion.

She was prohibited from creating a legal defense fund (Alaska Trust Fund).

But now that she is not in office, she is free to raise millions of dollars.

I would love to see it if only to see the liberals go crazy and attack her relentlessly which will backfire and increase her popularity. It will expose the liberals as the nasty bunch they are.

The media will be pushing hard for a female candidate, we should counter with Sarah, a great American who will have no compunction exposing Hillary as the old, tired socialist she is.

"But do tell me more about the awesome donation-inspiring capabilities of Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. "

Either of those jerks will bring $1b to the table in a general election.

Guaranteed.

However, let's not forget there a dozen or more debates that must occur...starting about 1 year from now.

The ante to run is actually only a few million to get through Iowa and NH...

If a candidate survives there, they need another $10mil or so to compete in N Carolina.

Anyone who wins 2 of those 3 is certain to have all the money they need from that point forward.

Anyone.

Been there, done that.

With all due respect, put up or shut up, Sarah.

She already has name recognition out the wahzoo. Media will be promoting her heavily by negating and criticizing every last thing she says or doesn’t say. Everyone except rabid fems and Dems on the payroll will know that virtually everything the press says about her is the opposite of the truth or a perversion of what she represents.

She just needs TO RUN (for sure) and let the nomination come to her naturally.

Doesn’t need to buy TV ads anymore to win. SP is in an unique position now because of her perserverance, longevity in the national and world-media limelight, and proven endurance of all the negativity that the Dem media can throw at ANY POTENTIAL CANDIDATE.

Many many voters railing against her publicly will pull the lever FOR her privately. Female voters actually really DO admire her more than Hillary and other potential women and men candidates.

She CAN win.

If Sarah and Ted campaigned together, it would be all over for the RINOs except the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
