Sarah Palin: I would run for president if everyone else sucks

Sarah Palin talked politics as usual, including Murkowski, O’Donnell, and of course her own possible run for the presidency. Greta did get one pretty interesting question in, wondering what would have to happen for Sarah to run for President. This one she answered, basically saying that if no one else stepped up to the plate with the right ideas, then she would. She also adds that it isn’t about power or titles, or rather that she doesn’t need them. Skip ahead to the 6:10 mark if you only want to hear this part.

Question – what does it say about Newt, Romney, Huckabee, et al. if she does run?

Update: Oh yeah, I almost forgot that she throws out ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ early in the interview. Go Sarah!

    I don’t know who would be worse out of Romney, Gingrich and Palin. We need someone fresh, someone without baggage and who isn’t begging for attention in all the wrong ways. Someone besides those 3. Palin and Gingrich are unelectable nuts, and Romney gave Massachusetts the Beta version of Obamacare.

    I hope some real contenders step up. We can’t lose the 2012 presidential election and truly get rid of all this trash the Dems have passed this year.

    I’m hoping a certain Governor of Indiana will throw his hat in the race.

      how about 0bama write-in his campaign for 2012?

    • Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin’s than they are to President Obama’s, according to a new RasmussenReportsnational telephone survey.
      Just 40% say their views are closer to the president’s than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.

      Eighty-four percent (84%) of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party say their views are more like Palin’s.

      76% of Republicans and 52% of unaffiliated voters now hold a favorable opinion of Palin.

      Excuse me but what do you mean sarah is a nut? She wants lower taxes so the free market and capitalism can do what it does best and she also wants to hold both parties accountable for their actions in congress. She stands for a strong national defence to ensure not only our security but to fight for the oppressed around the world. She is a strong principled lady. A very rare breed in politics. How sir is she crazy.

        I like her economics, but her social issues make me wary and stop me from bouncing off the walls in excitement for her.

        An amendment to the federal constitution about marriage? How is that in anyway in the purview of the federal government under the constitution? That’s just one example, the stance on Intelligent Design is worse.

        I’d vote for her over Obama, but that’s not saying much, I’d vote for anyone over Obama.

        • Kbbookgirl

          Um she is not pushing for any amendment to the federal constitution about marriage. Where did you hear that? Also it should be noted that she has a large tent of followers. Tammy Bruce is a huge fan of hers and she is a pro-choice, gay woman. Sarah has her personal beliefs just like the rest of us but she respects those who disagree with her. It seems to me that its the left who loves to define you by your stance on social issues. Your gay? You must be on the left! You can’t support a republican. Your mexican? Vote for me! Its people like Sarah who respect the rights of the individual without trying to define them for political gain.

            I’ve lost count of the so-cons I’ve seen on Hotair.com and Redstate.com that champion her BECAUSE of a federal marriage amendment is something they claim she supports.

            I agree that Balkanizing Americans is infuriating and disgusting, but don’t think for a minute that the right doesn’t do it as well. Look at the travesty of a speech Romney had to give in ’08 that, if you ask me, violated Article VI of the Constitution.

            I oppose all tribalistic divides that you describe, It’s individuals’ actions and stances that are to be judged, nothing else. If she has disavowed support for an intrusive federal amendment or likewise intrusive government enacting of private morality via law, then I withdraw my objection to her.

              All right she does want marriage to be between one man and one woman. So do I. But as far as gay marriage goes there is no way to resolve that matter without leaving someone out in the cold. And I never said that the right does not use social issues for political gain. Many do.

              • Constitution

                In a case such as that, you have to go with protecting the minority’s rights in spite of the majority’s prejudice. Otherwise, you’ve just nullified the US Constitution. The “traditional marriage” argument is at its core religious oppression – the majority can’t see past their own religious beliefs. Lawmakers have forgotten that they put their hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution, NOT the other way around.

              We must hang out at a different Hot Air ’cause I’ve not seen anyone saying they MOST like Palin because of her social views.

              And you must not be paying attention to Palin’s record or words if you think she’s going to push social issues were she President.

              She did not push social issues as either mayor OR governor throughout her nearly 10 years in those executive positions.

              Please do your homework.

              Her work for social issues is almost ENTIRELY in the private sector. HENCE her slew of speeches given to private charities that support pro-life, troubled teen, and special needs families.

              As a public official, her biggest projects are Energy Independence, limiting government spending, and reprioritizing government management to make it more efficient.

      None of the three you list is a nut.

      Gingerich is 20th century, thrice married old news.

      Romney is a Big Government healthcare mandate guy.

      I’m on board with Palin. She has almost a decade of executive experience in government – in which she had consistently shown her allegiance to limited government in its proper, Constitutional role, and to landing on the side of the people deciding for themselves versus the gov’t deciding for them.

      BTW, as governor, she upheld the AK Constitution, which is different from the U.S. Constitution on key measures, such as AK’s natural reserves being owned by all Alaskans. Hence her tax/royalty increase on Big Oil to ensure the reserve owners got their rightful share.

      Who’s your candidate m_quick? It is irresponsible to knock everyone without also lifting up someone.

      So choose someone.

      Or – as I suspect – reveal who your choice already is.

      And then defend your choice.

    Romney & Romneycare would be the worst!. Gingrich is a globalist RINO (http://logisticsmonster.com/2010/08/07/the-real-newt-gingrich-new-world-order-globalist/ ) Huckabee would be a nother progressive in GWB’s footsteps.

    Or course Demint, John Boehner and Mike Pence will take a shot. But the best candidates are governors. Rich Perry seems to be prepping for a run. Bobby Jindal (LA). Palin did increase the payments Alaskans get for oil (wouldn’t this be a change instead of paying income tax). Palin might make us a net oil/energy exporter. Jan Brewer, Ron/Rand Paul and Mitch Daniels (IN) could be in the mix.

  • Sarah Palin is loved by patriotic Americans and hated by people who have no clue about what is best for this country.her record speaks for itself.when I see/hera people whin,bitch and moan about the conservative candidates it becomes obvious that they are lying trools who try and disguise their liberal agenda.I don’t blame liberals for hiding who they really are because they are a disgusting bunch of anti-American pond scum.

      Reread what you just wrote! Honestly because someone doesn’t see things the way you do or others in regards to voting for Palin makes them a liberal…how narrowminded can you get? I guess you just showed me!

      I think Palin is able to bring the crowds but SHE troubles me that she BACKED McCain-is he a true conservative? And Perry of TX -is he a TRUE conservative? I AM troubled by the fact that she walked out of the governorship of AK! Quitting is not a good thing unless you are doing something bad of course!

      I think she is good at conservative talk and PROBABLY means it BUT I am not convinced that she will stay TRUE to her values…explain WHY she backed McCain and Perry!? Please!

        I agree that Palin made a mistake in endorsing McCain and I don’t know enough about Perry to form an opinion. Also it’s easy to think that anyone bashing Palin is a liberal.Obama’s network and most of MSM dedicate much of their time bashing Palin. I’m not saying hating Palin makes anyone a liberal. As to her quitting as governor, exactly what bad thing are you insinuating she has done.
        I’m sure you have facts to back up insinuations. Facts are the thing that separates us from the liberals.

                Our disagreement was on your interpretation of what Cheryl was possibly implying. She is very capable of speaking for her self and I would really like hearing from her. If she knows something bad that would have caused Palin to resign, I would really like to know what it is.

                  If you realize you are doing something wrong then it is ok to stop or quit…I am sorry if you took it as though I was suggesting she did something wrong…I didn’t mean that…that doesn’t mean though I agree with her quitting…some of her ways are confusing to me and for that reason I am skeptical of her.

                  Thanks Cheryl for explanation. One reason she quit is the toll it was taking on her family and another is the legal fees. I heard they were over 250,000 dollars and she estimated over half a million.
                  Have you heard if they ruled against her on them?
                  I have asked people in my own family to be specific why they don’t like her and they really don’t know.

                  I think that for me it is the duplicity of her being “on stage” or out in public alot of the time yet declaring how much her family means to her.

                  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize SOMETHING somewhere has to be forsaken and it usually is “the kids” or “the family”. She herself says in her own words how much she relies on extended family to help with her family’s needs, activities, etc…you know what I mean.

                  I am NOT saying she can’t juggle all these things, I am certain she has a full plate. She is a high energy person and hey…to be in labor on a plane, have a baby on Friday and back to work on Monday…it doesn’t get any more high energy than that!! And for it to be a baby with special needs at that! She is a much stronger person than me!! And definitely knows how to roll with the punches!!!

                  I think when you go in the public arena and start declaring “family values” you better make sure that you REALLY have them and live them and it isn’t just lip service…you can say whatever you want but your actions, your choices PROVE something don’t they? And the WORLD knows that and will TEST you on that…

                  Though she says her family is a priority in order for that to be so you HAVE TO BE THERE otherwise how can it be a priority?

                  When she stands up for McCain or she stands up for Perry…I see a mom…learning how to PLAY the POLITICAL GAME. That concerns me. Because in the scope of life that isn’t the most important thing, it REALLY is about her family, her husband her kids, etc. When you choose to marry and have a family THAT is your priority and in my book she is still young and still has a relatively young family to care for…

                  YOU care about the policies, the plans, the ideas she has for political office
                  I look at: what kind of a person, mom, wife are you first.

                  No matter what the world says…being a mom is a hard job, an intense job and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly and taken as a small part of your life…that is if you happen to still have a young family.

Because in the scope of life that isn’t the most important thing, it REALLY is about her family, her husband her kids, etc. When you choose to marry and have a family THAT is your priority and in my book she is still young and still has a relatively young family to care for…

                  YOU care about the policies, the plans, the ideas she has for political office
                  I look at: what kind of a person, mom, wife are you first.

                  No matter what the world says…being a mom is a hard job, an intense job and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly and taken as a small part of your life…that is if you happen to still have a young family.

                  “I look at: what kind of a person, mom, wife are you first.” +++++++++ Wouldn’t that also apply to a person,father,husband? I thought we were past the days where it’s just the mother’s responsibility to raise the children. I respect your opinion of Sarah, but I think we need her. Women in Government could not possibly do worse than the men have done.
                  I still don’t know enough about Perry to form an opinion.
                  As far as McCain, I was disappointed by her endorsement. During the 2008 election I was for McCain over Obama. It wasn’t that I liked McCain, but I felt McCain was a less severe form of cancer than Obama. It would have taken McCain longer to kill the country.

                  Well, I do think if mom can’t be the primary caretaker for the kids(and we ARE talking about a 2 parent family) than the dad indeed should be BUT DAD’S aren’t MOM’S and they aren’t supposed to be and it isn’t the same…take a look at the American society or family…you can’t blame this one on the Dems or Republicans! Yes, we may have strayed from the Constitution all these years but we have also strayed from certain other principles that have helped America be a strong society…it has been a fight from the beginning and I am sure it always will be…and as ALWAYS the kids are caught in the middle! Thanks for responding!

                Our disagreement was on your interpretation of what Cheryl was possibly implying. She is very capable of speaking for her self and I would really like hearing from her. If she knows something bad that would have caused Palin to resign, I would really like to know what it is.

            Sorry, I respectfully disagree with you. Remember we all have a right to our own opinion. Also, Cheryl is very capable of explaining why she is troubled by Palin quitting. I’m not troubled by her quitting. It’s difficult to perform her job when she is fighting the lawsuits. It was very expensive also.

        Is loyalty not a conservative attribute? Is consistency not a conservative attribute? As she said, I cannot say in 2008 that I think he is the right man for the Presidency, and in 2010 say I don’t think he should be a senator. Not to mention the fact that Hayworth is a HUGE Big Government spender …

        Or would you rather Palin threw McCain under the bus – as BO did to Wright, Ayers, General McChrystal, and soon his whole staff?

        You also don’t seem to have done your homework about:

        a) her government record as mayor and governor
        and
        b) her legitimate reasons for resigning

        Incidentally, resigning is not quitting. The latter means you walk out one day leaving everyone hanging. Or simply don’t show up.

        Palin planned for her resignation, made several personnel moves leading up to her announcement, gave 3 weeks’ notice in which she tied up all loose ends, and turned over the very much in shape government to her very much capable Conservative LG, Sean Parnell, who’s in GREAT shape to win re-election this fall – and continue the policies of the Palin/Parnell administration.

        Please doe your homework.

          Furthermore, what do all you “quitter” repeaters think of Mitt Romney announcing in the third year of his one-term governorship that he wouldn’t seek re-election – and then spending his last full year running around the country setting up his run for the Presidency????

          For that matter, what do you all think of Tim Pawlenty, who announced last July (just before Palin’s announcement BTW) that he would not seek re-election – and who has spent the last year beefing up operations in NH and Iowa? Personally, I had no idea that those two states were so integral to the running of the state of Minnesota???

            Hmmm…Romney and Pawlenty didn’t quit their job did they?

            And you really can’t suggest that they aren’t doing their job because they can do SO MANY things at once…because TAKE A HARD LOOK at all the things/responsibilities Palin is able to manage!

            Nice try though!

        • Cheryl~

          You are making excuses for her behavior…

          Perry was the one that accepted the stimulus,(at a Tea Party rally he said he wouldn’t take it) Perry is for the Texas Trans Corridor…
          Perry is soft on the border he thinks it should be eliminated…and he is FOR NAFTA!

          …And NO! loyalty to a person should not come before your country…there is TOO MUCH at stake for this nonsense…that sounds like the mafia!

          Take a look at WHO groomed Perry and what party he was in initially…homework time!

          Perry panders to the Tea Party…look at what he says and then what he does!

          McCain is left, left, left…I assume you listen to Beck and have heard his commentary on the man…McCain’s record is horrible…take a look….Perhaps if McCain had gone against Obama as hard as he went against Hayworth there might be a different ending to the story.

          But the issue isn’t McCain or Perry it is about Sarah Palin and her choosing to support McCain and Perry and stepping down as governor of AK.

          I don’t know her reasons for stepping down, I know what she says and I see what she does…they need to go hand in hand if you want integrity.

          Do you know anything about Perry and his switch to the Republican Party…and who helped him?

    • Cheryl~

      Reread what you just wrote! Honestly because someone doesn’t see things the way you do or others in regards to voting for Palin makes them a liberal…how narrowminded can you get? I guess you just showed me!

      I think Palin is able to bring the crowds but SHE troubles me that she BACKED McCain-is he a true conservative? And Perry of TX -is he a TRUE conservative? I AM troubled by the fact that she walked out of the governorship of AK! Quitting is not a good thing unless you are doing something bad of course!

      I think she is good at conservative talk and PROBABLY means it BUT I am not convinced that she will stay TRUE to her values…explain WHY she backed McCain and Perry!? Please!

      Ok, so, the woman hasn’t even announced any campaign, there hasn’t been a primary, she hasn’t put forward a platform for a national candidacy and one can’t be inferred by anything she’s said because her speaches are always conservative ear-candy buzzwords. If I have to hear “common sense” being pushed as some sort of policy position with ANY kind of specificity I’m going to lose my mind.Working from ALL of the magnificently vague lack of policy stances of hers described above, you come to the conclusion that anyone supporting her is a good American and that anyone who has a question about her belongs in a pillory? The non sequitur of your overly simplistic and obviously emotional/noncritical thinking is so glaring I’m curious if you’re being serious.Could your rhetoric sound any more bitter or your thinking any more lazy?No, I don’t think so.

        You’ve answered your own complaint, daniel …

        D’ja ever think perhaps, just perhaps, the reason Palin is not putting out detailed policy papers and presentations is BECAUSE she is not an announced candidate running for anything?

        It would be inappropriate and immaterial for her to give detailed policy positions since she’s not currently running. Her role now is to talk up conservative principles – and conservative candidate for the 2010 elections.

        And that’s exactly what she’s doing.

        Check out http://www.PalinTV.com and spend time listening to her speeches, specifically ones in Denver (and the follow-up Q&A) and Oklahoma – and you will hear LOTS of political and governing philosophy. If you want to know how this woman will make governing decisions and based on what foundation you need to

        a) read her book
        b) listen to her speeches and interviews
        and
        c) study her record as mayor and governor
