Sarah Palin: My goal is to make sure that President Obama is not reelected in 2012

Sarah Palin had some very strong words tonight for President Obama, our temporary leader, in reaction to his throwing Israel under the bus this week:

America is on the wrong side on this issue and that’s what the Prime Minister on Friday tried to explain to our president even though our president tried to lecture Prime Minister Netanyahu on the meaning of importance of peace. Netanyahu does not need to be lectured by President Obama on the importance of peace. He understands it. So we’re on the wrong side of history if we continue to go down this road.

What we need to do though Judge is ‘we the people’ need to rise up saying we’ll take a stand for Israel. We’ll be on their side even if our – I’m gonna call him our temporary leader because my goal is to make sure that President Obama is not reelected in 2012 so that we don’t have to continue to go down this path of this foreign policy that really makes no sense and in this particular case is so obviously wrong because we’re telling our friends to negotiate with Hamas, with terrorists, who have already said – Hamas has said we’ll never negotiate with Israel.

So until President Obama is replaced by a president who understands the importance of treating our friends right and being strong against our enemies, until that happens it’s we the people who have to rise up and make sure Israel knows they have friends here.

The rest of the interview is great as she talks about how much she loves Herman Cain and more! Make sure to watch both parts. Enjoy!

  1.  Sarah said it right. We don’t need a nanny state. Remember the phrase that stated the most dangerous and disgusting words in the english language is, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” 

  2.  How can we not laugh at the fact that madam Pelosi gives exemptions to her constituents to a bill that is regarded by her party as a godsend? If something is so great, why would anyone government hack let us meager citizens take a raincheck? I would laugh if this was happening in another country; But, nope, it’s going on in our own backyard.

  3. Sarah Palin Slams Obama on Israel, Wants ‘Redneck Woman’ to Be Her Ringtone
    May 22, 2011 7:05 AM

    ABC News’ Sheila Marikar reports: 

    In a Fox News appearance Saturday night, Sarah Palin slammed President Barack Obama’s Middle East speech and revealed that she’d like to change her cell phone ringtone to Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”

    The former Alaska governor chastised President Obama for seeking a Middle East peace agreement at the expense of Israel’s territory. 

     “Anyone who studies history, studies the old testament, studies geography understands that Israel now is surrounded by enemies at all times,” Palin said on Jeanine Pirro’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine.” “It should be now that America takes a stand in defending our enemies in Israel.”

    “More than ever we should be standing strong with Israel and saying ‘No, you don’t have to divide Jerusalem, you don’t have to divide your capital city,’” she added.

    Palin went on to say that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “does not need to be lectured by President Obama on the importance of peace. He understands it.” 

    “I’m going to call him our temporary leader because my goal is to make sure that President Obama is not reelected in 2012 so that we don’t have to continue to go down this path of this foreign policy that really makes no sense,” she said.

    Palin also discussed the crop of conservative contenders, including businessman and Tea Party favorite Herman Cain, who announced his bid for the White House Saturday.

    “I like Herman Cain, even hearing his name,” she said. “I get kind of excited thinking about what it is he has to offer in the discourse and the debate.”

    Though he’s never held an elected office, Palin cited Cain’s experience as the head of the Godfather’s Pizza franchise as qualification enough to lead the country: “He knows how to make a payroll … He knows how to make a really good pizza.”

    As for getting into the 2012 race herself, Palin kept up her drum beat from past weeks, saying she’s weighing what it will do to her family and “I don’t want them to be miserable through it.”

    Piro closed the interview by playing candidate Newt Gingrich’s recently-revealed cell phone ringtone (Abba’s “Dancing Queen”) and asking Palin what her ringtone is.

    “You know, it’s just a really boring one,” Palin began before musing, “I think the mood that I am in today and the venue that I am in, I’d pick Gretchen Wilson’s ‘Redneck Woman’ and I’d be proud to have that as my ringtone.”

  4. Just wondering,… where is Sarah’s teleprompter??? 

    Oh,..wait,.. she doesn’t NEED one,.. 

    Sarah can ACTUALLY THINK coherently on any given subject,.. 

    not just READ a prepared text,.. like our puppet leader barry.

    1. True.

      You don’t need a teleprompter when you’re speaking about deeply held principles.  BO wouldn’t need a teleprompter either if he was able to speak freely about his socialist / marxist plans without fear of losing an election.   

  5.  Oh,.. and by the way,.. BARRY is NOT Israelis friend in ANY way.

    Just in case you have NOT figured that out.

    So if you ARE jewish,… why are you voting for barry??? 

    barry wants you dead.

    What part of that do you NOT understand???

  6.  I’ve posted this MANY times before, in case you missed it,…

    All I can say is Carter / Reagan 1979.

    And we ALL know just how THAT worked out thank God.

    The Leftwing nut LIBRATARDS know in their bones that Sarah Palin,…

    IS Ronald Reagan ALL OVER AGAIN. IT TERRIFIES them to no end. 

    ESPECIALLY the ones who are OLD enough to remember Reagan.

    So they are trying with EVERY thing they have to,…

    destroy her in a pre-emptive strike.

    If you have heard her recent WI speech you understand.

    Sarah Palin REALLY IS the real deal. 

    Not some pre-packaged made up configuration like their hero Barry. 

    The Left senses this and has reacted like expected.

    IF SHE RUNS AGAINST barry IN 2012,…

    She WILL CRUSH him with indisputable numbers.

    Compared to barry she is Exactly what America will NEED to repair 

    ALL of the damage wrought by the Dumb-O-cRATs and barry and his UNION masters.

    This is ONE MORE REASON America NEED’s Sarah Palin NOW more than EVER.

    And I can NOT stress this enough,…

    Sarah Palin IS ONE of the ONLY women IN the REPUBLICAN PARTY,…

    With the “B A L L S” to tell Barry and his UNION masters,…

    AND the Dumb-O-cRATs to SHOVE their agenda were the sun does NOT SHINE!!.

    PALIN / BOLTON 2012

    or

    Barack Obama 2012?

     then “YOU may want to think about a TRADE-IN.” 

    PALIN / (Fill in the blank) 2012

  7. Sarah Palin, Our LEADER and Next President of USA in 2013, likes this Song: 

    Gretchen Wilson – Redneck Woman

    Enjoy it:

  8. Sarah Palin will DEFEAT Obama Next Year….Sarah Palin is the Only LEADER who can BEAT Obama Next Year….That’s why lamestream media, liberals, lefties, progressies, socialists and communists are very afraid of Sarah Palin..

  9.  Sarah Palin said Last week:

    “Don’t let the media define who these candidates [GOP presidenti­al field] are. Let us, as constituen­ts, as voters, as potential candidates­, we need to do our homework.”

  10. Interviews like this are exactly why the Left is terrified of Palin, and go beserk just thinking about her.

    Wouldn’t Palin and West be a great team–first female President and first African/American Vice President–or Palin/Bachman–or Bachman/West!

    Then we would see whole new levels of misogny and racism from the Left.

    1. Expect a whole new levels of negativity, misogny and racism from the left, LSM, ACORN, SEIU, moveon.org … from the Chicago campaign HQ. Why fear them?Don’t underestimate either, the counter force and voice of “Righteous Indignation” from conservative cable media, broadcast radio and the Blogosphere news media, and most significantly, the “silent-no-more” majority (Tea Party townhall and rally’d given us indications of reality on the ground in 2010).

      The more the merrier for the primary contest, focus debates on their platform policy issues. Though the stats may not stack in their favor at this early stage, I won’t want to be dismissive or writeoff any conservative candidates. The best president/VP ticket hopefully’ll be the outcome after the primary.  All other candidates may serve in the Administration in various capacity and this’ll be real bonus. God knows the nation needs them.
        

  11. @Steven, You’ve got a good point. On FN Hannity show, Carl Rove’s comment on Sarah Palin is no longer dismissive nor snearing, in view of the present reality with Republican candidates. He raised a solid point indeed that SP is the most nationwide well-known candidate w.r.t. the rest of the candidates, her experience, preparedness from 2008, and her stats are also ahead comparatively. Not that we need/care about this RINO strategist punditry, yet it’s the first time I hear Rove gives credence to Sarah Palin. If Sarah Palin decides to jump into the fray (with fire in the belly), there’s a very strong possibility that she’ll win the primary and she’ll unite Tea Party and Republican GOP solidly behind her to win the 2012. Palin/West would be a strong winning ticket.

  12.  It will be very
    nice to have a President in the office. What we have right now is whatever you
    may call it, but not the President. It was just a shame of our great nation to
    put in charge a former community organizer, who has very murky ties with very
    murky people in his past. We have so many smart, devoted and high experienced personalities
    who indisputably have strong leader skills and knowledge to be in charge of the
    most prestige office in the world. Let’s put aside our political differences and
    face the reality – it’s not the time to play a losing game again – too much
    challenges our country and the whole world is facing right now. G-d forbids,
    but having same hypocrite for the next four years is a recipe for disaster.

  13. Anyone who expects Palin to attack another GOP candidate has a long wait.  But we’ll see how nasty they get with her. 

  14. Yeah, we need to get rid of the part-timer.  Just about anything that comes along will make a vastly greater leader than the amatuer imbecile that BS’d his way into office we have now.  It will be so nice to get a real President in office again.  This one, as an illegal invader, doesn’t rate the title of President.  I’ve never considered him as such, nor will I ever.  I can’t think of a single human being I hate more than this imposter.
     

  15. Newt has been on MTP thirty-five times?
    I knew he’d been on there several times before, but not that many.
    Of course, it was different when Tim Russert was there…at least he attempted to ‘seem’ fair, whereas Gregory doesn’t even try.
    But now, having ABBA for a ringtone!? That’s it.
    Newt is toast now.

    “…gonna call him our temporary leader..”
    Haaa. I love it.

    Glad that Judge Jeanine brought up the Obamacare Waivers.
    And Sarah sorta called out the Republicans about not investigating them yet.
    Which is great.
    Obama shouldn’t be getting away with this.
    This is how he is holding back the tsunami of outrage that would be going on because of the lost jobs and lost healthcare coverage that Obamacare causes/will cause.

    Good stuff. Thanks RS, for posting this.
    I was hoping you would.
    Didn’t get to watch it.

    All the pundits on Fox mention ‘the ordeal for her family’ when they interview Sarah.
    I have suspected for a long time, that she has probably been on the receiving end of death threats, since that is something that the left likes to do.
    But I’ve never heard her mention any.
    I wonder if this is something that is known about, behind the scenes at Fox.
     

    1.  the death threats have been reported.  She just got a restraining order for a  nutcase that fly to AK  from Pa  and sent her a recipt for a gun he had bought.

      1. Thanks.
        Yeah, I had read about the recent nutcase episode.
        And I had heard referrences made before to ‘threats’…just not any details about the severity of them. 

  16. So what happens when we get Palin, Cain, and Bachmann on the same stage to debate?  First, they sweep away Pawlenty, Huntsman, Daniels, and Romney. Those folks just look like oatmeal with no salt, no butter, and no nuts.  That’s OK, since Ronpaul supplies plenty of nuts.

    Newt might stand up with them well, since he’s sharp as hell.  His problem is he can’t stop thinking about the ideal situation. He’ll gaffe his way to the sidelines faster than Teh Fred slouched his way to obscurity.

    So Cain has to speed up his delivery and get more specific about Obamacare (which he totally left out of his announcement speech) and our military campaigns. Bachmann needs to watch the gaffes and overcome the curse of being a member of Congress. Palin needs to show command of the overall situation.  If any of them goes negative (like, say McCain did with Romney), then that person will likely lose.

    They also need to sew up their endorsement portfolio.  Hate to say it, but whoever gets Huck’s endorsement will look pretty strong.

    1. I agree, K_Bob.
      And yeah, Newt’s professorial roots keep emerging in his inability to think on his feet in interviews.
      But in a debate, he would be prepared.

      Uh…you put salt on oatmeal?
      I can’t get the stuff down without lots of sugar. 

      1. Here’s how to make oatmeal worth eating: First, add some steel-cut oats to the recipe, and never use “quick” oats. Second, when they are done, add a hunk of butter and some brown sugar and milk. (Soymilk works very well in oats, even if you don’t like to drink it.) Some folks add a pinch of salt. (I find the butter has enough sodium for me.)

        Top with broken bits of pecan, and if you can get it, maple sprinkles (maple sugar granules).

        1. Yum!
          Yeah, brown sugar is great on oatmeal…and ‘quick oats’ aren’t worth having.
          And dittos on the butter and milk.
          Add some bacon or sausage on the side and even an ice storm doesn’t seem so bad.
          But I must confess, if I have my druthers, I like Malt-O-Meal or Cream of Wheat better than Oatmeal…with the same goodies of course.
          🙂 

  17.  Great job Palin! The Potus, currently, is doing his hidden JIHAD’s mission. He is a traitor-moslem from the beginning. So open your eyes Folks! Vote-No-More-Obama-2012!

  18. I love Herman Cain, but with the prospect of a professional politician like Sarah Palin, who has taken on the Establishment of her party before and won, ready to enter this race, I have to withhold my support from Cain until I know Palin will not run. From this interview tonight, it doesn’t seem like she is not going to run. On the contrary, she is committed to making Obama a one term president. She will have to win her party nomination first, but there is no doubt that she will do everything in her power to ensure Obama is defeated.

    Conservatives let’s be realistic. If Palin enters the fray, it will marginalize people like Cain and Bachmann. Both will be better off dropping out and endorsing Palin and joining her campaign to defeat the GOP Establishment and then helping her to unite the party to take down the Obama machine. A CEO for Godfather’s Pizza is not going to be President of the United States. A 2-term Congressmen from Minnesota is not going to be President of the United States (and I am not denigrating their significant accomplishments, its just an historic fact.).

    We have to unite conservatives behind a proven leader, a person who has been through the rigors of a campaign and who has first hand knowledge of what taking on the Obama machine is all about. We all wished that she was at the top of the ticket in 2008, right? Well now we get our chance to have her where she should’ve been last time. She put John McCain in the lead before the bottom fell out of the financial system. She knows what it will take to win. Let’s stop pussyfooting around, to borrow a phrase from her, and get behind Sarah Palin 2012! Game On!

      1. I never said he did need her endorsement. And im well aware of the polls. But again this guy has no political record. Thats a big deal to me.  

        1.  I’m tired of career politicians that constantly carry the water for their party establishment time and time again. I want a real outsider or as close to one that there is. All a political record tells me is that they have been out of touch with the real world.

          1.  No the Real World is to the Voters and your Approval and Public Record.
            Cain has None ,

            Just Conservative Talking Points NO  Public Record.

            1. Her numbers with the voters in Alaska while she was Governor are irrelevant. Most voters unfortunately will only remember the smears from the last election and haven’t a clue about what she did as Governor. The longer she sits on the sidelines the tougher it will be for to get any traction with all but her most ardent supporters and that is not enough to carry the day.Until she announces her candidacy to my mind she is still a pundit working for Fox.

              1. Show me Where  Cain held any Public Office in Anything…

                Then Show me his Poll Approval Numbers by Voters in that Office ..

                1.  Did someone drop you on your head as a child? The fact that he has not held public office is what interests people in him, plus his experience in the private sector.

                2.  BTW, care to show me and everyone else just where it is required that a candidate has to have held public office to run for office? It seems to me that the fact that all the politicians that have repeatedly screwed us over in the past have been previous office holders. It’s time we had a real change.

                3. With few exception of Washington and Eisenhower, every US president’d had prior political experience either as a governor, senator, or congressman in US history.  Cain may well be the exception in this exceptional time? 

              2.  I must interject that the polls on Sarah are irrelevant, because the voters have not had a chance to hear her in her own words. All they know about Sarah is Tina Fey’s and the lame stream media’s carefully crafted caricature. You can be sure that once they hear her in her own words and see her real record, her poll numbers will skyrocket.

            2. I already replied to a post about this in another thread:  “Polls? that’s public record? fine you win, we obviously can never ask people who worked at Godfather’s pizza under Cains rule whether or not they approved of his work ethic,  I too adore Palin unfortunately ever since the tucson shooting i witnessed a young woman get soulfully raped, she could have been a great President but with leftist vitriol and violence I dont want to see her hurt.” BTW Bob Riley was my governor and that approval rating is pretty much right on, he also had the same margin of victory for his re-election, you know how it is, Republicans love him, democrats loathe him, no big difference so that poll again is irrevelant.

          2. Cain may not have held public office before, but he has run for it before.  He’s no stranger to the games.  He just hasn’t successfully won and screwed the citizenry yet.

            1.  So, if that’s your view so be it you’ve made up your mind to back a candidate that will be a lame duck provided he can win. But to my mind I’m interested in hearing more of what Cain has to say, and at this point he is the only one running that is not a career politician.

              1. Yeah.  Just what we need…someone else abusing the executive branch whereas the one guy who would actually reduce its powers back to Constitutional levels is viewed as a “lame duck.”  It takes more strength to NOT grasp for power.

                1.  Really you can say that with a straight face about a guy that has been in office for what? Off and on for over twenty years? Get real.

                2. With Cain It’s BS and Talking Points Only  … How did Trump Work out For You… He held No Public Office…

                3.  I never supported Trump, in fact I was one those saying it was publicity. Get a grip.

                4.  I’m not trying to convince either of you since you both are so far in the tank for your picks, attempting to reason with zealots is pointless after all. I’ve heard the talking points of your candidate. As far as Palin goes well she is not a candidate at the moment is she? As for me well I am interested in hearing more from Cain at the moment but I am withholding concrete support from any candidate until I hear more than just “talking points”. Neither of you have exactly impressed me with your supposed “cons” on Cain at this point and if the best either of you can do is whine and cry “BS” it only shows me that you have no real point.

                5.  Where is there anything Written  About Cain Public Office Accomplishments ???

                  Here is Some Of Palins

                  JUNEAU, Alaska — The wipeout in
                  the 2006 election left Republicans in such a state of dejection that they’ve
                  overlooked the one shining victory in which a Republican star was
                  born.

                  The triumph came in Alaska where Sarah Palin, a politician
                  of eye-popping integrity, was elected governor. She is now the most popular
                  governor in America, with an approval rating in the 90s, and probably the most
                  popular public official in any state.

                  Her rise is a great (and rare) story of how adherence to
                  principle–especially to transparency and accountability in government–can
                  produce political success. And by the way, Palin is a conservative who only last
                  month vetoed 13 percent of the state’s proposed budget for capital projects. The
                  cuts, the Anchorage Daily News said, “may be the biggest single-year line-item
                  veto total in state history.”

                  As recently as last year, Palin (pronounced pale-in) was a
                  political outcast. She resigned in January 2004 as head of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission after complaining to
                  the office of Governor Frank Murkowski and to state Attorney General Gregg
                  Renkes about ethical violations by another commissioner, Randy Ruedrich, who was
                  also Republican state chairman.

                  State law barred Palin from speaking out publicly about
                  ethical violations and corruption. But she was vindicated later in 2004 when
                  Ruedrich, who’d been reconfirmed as state chairman, agreed to pay a $12,000 fine
                  for breaking state ethics laws. She became a hero in the eyes of the public and
                  the press, and the bane of Republican leaders.

                  In 2005, she continued to take on the Republican
                  establishment by joining Eric Croft, a Democrat, in lodging an ethics complaint against
                  Renkes, who was not only attorney general but also a long-time adviser and
                  campaign manager for Murkowski. The governor reprimanded Renkes and said the
                  case was closed. It wasn’t. Renkes resigned a few weeks later, and Palin was
                  again hailed as a hero.

                  Palin, 43, the mother of four, passed up a chance to
                  challenge Republican senator Lisa Murkowski, the then-governor’s
                  daughter, in 2004. She endorsed another candidate in the primary, but Murkowski
                  won and was reelected. Palin said then that her 14-year-old son talked her out
                  of running, though it’s doubtful that was the sole reason.

                  In 2006, she didn’t hesitate. She ran against Gov.
                  Murkowski, who was seeking a second term despite sagging poll ratings, in the
                  Republican primary. In a three-way race, Palin captured 51 percent and won in a
                  landslide. She defeated former Democratic governor Tony Knowles in the general election, 49 percent to 41 percent. She
                  was one of the few Republicans anywhere in the country to perform above
                  expectations in 2006, an overwhelmingly Democratic year. Palin is unabashedly
                  pro life.

                  With her emphasis on ethics and openness in government, “it
                  turned out Palin caught the temper of the times perfectly,” wrote Tom Kizzia of
                  the Anchorage Daily News. She was also lucky. News broke of an FBI investigation
                  of corruption by legislators between the primary and general elections. So far,
                  three legislators have been indicted.

                  In the roughly three years since she quit as the state’s
                  chief regulator of the oil industry, Palin has crushed the Republican hierarchy
                  (virtually all male) and nearly every other foe or critic. Political analysts in
                  Alaska refer to the “body count” of Palin’s rivals.

                  “The landscape is littered with the bodies of those who
                  crossed Sarah,” says pollster Dave Dittman, who worked for her gubernatorial
                  campaign. It includes Ruedrich, Renkes, Murkowski, gubernatorial contenders John
                  Binkley and Andrew Halcro, the three big oil companies in Alaska, and a section
                  of the Daily News called “Voice of the Times,” which was highly critical of
                  Palin and is now defunct.

                6.  Is she running? Has she declared? Maybe you missed it, so I’ll say it again the thing that interests me the most about Cain Is that he HAS NOT HELD PUBLIC OFFICE did you get it that time?

                7. One who has stuck strictly with what power has been granted to him as opposed to voting for measures to increase Congress pay and the size and scope of government?  You betcha.

                8. Actually…he has returned extra money to the treasury each year. Again…people refuse to actually look this stuff up for themselves and therefore will not educate themselves. Paul is the guy that conservatives CLAIM that they are. Paul is the founding father of our era. Paul is the Reagan of our era (minus the big government social conservatism). These other guys are posers…plain and simple.

                9. “Paul is the Reagan of our era …”

                  You mean Paul would triple the debt and scuttle nuclear disarmament for the sake of real militarism and illusory defense programs?

                10. My bad…I probably should have put in the parenthesis…but actually has a record to back up the promises of getting government out of our lives.

                11.  Do you have a source link showing he returns it and at what amount as all I have ever seen is the claim that he returns a “portion”. As well as the claim that he returns a portion of his “office expense” stipend to the Treasury. However, if he is returning the same as Posey of Indiana, a mere 4,700 out of a salary of  169,300 (annual pay of Reps as of Jan ’09) then it is mere theatrics. In reality Paul has two very large targets on him that the Left is fully ready to use against him. I am aware as you are about the truth of the allegations but none the less it has continued to be an anchor around the neck of his campaign and he will have to overcome those to survive and frankly I don’t feel he can.

                12.  That’s his office budget not his salary, but it’s a partisan site just making a claim it has no figures stating what the office budget actually is, I was looking for independent confirmation of the claims. Something along the lines of documentation comparing office expenditures for all Reps. I tend to avoid “partisan” sources and “anti-partisan” sources as both have an over-riding agenda to either make the individual look good or bad depending on their position.

                13. See…you seem to immediately believe that Cain is somehow honest despite having served as a member of the Federal Reserve whose intentions have been to devalue our dollar since 1913 with GREAT SUCCESS along with 3 very recent flip-flops on important issues.  

                  However…you find such minuscule reasons to distrust someone who has been consistent in the small government principles and saying no to increased spending, size of government or increase of government power.  Interesting mindset you have.

                14.  Show me where I claimed Cain was either honest or dishonest.  All I have said about Cain is that I am interested in hearing more from him. I have heard what Paul has to say. At this point I am interested in what the new faces have to say. I haven’t decided just who I will back yet. You however seem intent on blaming Cain for all the “sins and ills” wrought by the Fed, which is pretty ludicrous considering he was a deputy director for 2 years and chairman for 1 year, of the civilian board of directors at the Kansas City branch, he served on a Class C board the lowest rung of boards (not even a full time position), so it wasn’t like he was running the Branch like you seem to be inferring.

                15. Again this thing won’t let me edit.  I also meant to ask you…what are the two issues specifically that you’re talking about?  

                  The two biggest ones I’ve heard are his stance on civil rights legislation which he’s defended quite eloquently before and can do again if need be and the one I know you’ve tried to take me to task on which is his partaking in the allocated funds to get some money back for his district which he didn’t sound so hot before but I think he can come back better on as long as he prepares himself better next time for that question.

                16.  The Civil Rights Act debacle was one albatross the other that the left will use to make hay about is the alleged StormFront connection. I know that candidates very seldom themselves know where the “money comes from” and I don’t view Paul as an anti-semite. However it will be brought up in connection with the CRA mess repeatedly by the left. Add to that Code Pink linking themselves to him which will likely be used by the establishment machine to bash him in the primaries, he will end up spending all his time and energy fending off the attacks from both sides and as we both know in soundbite elections it will only distract an already under-informed electorate.

                17. I believe he will do just fine against all attacks and in case you have missed his recent defenses…he’s doing a perfectly fine job now of informing the masses of what’s really going on in addition to answering the questions.  He’s an intellectual powerhouse and not the “nutjob” that others have painted him as.  If the mindset of the people is this easily swayed by nonsense…then we not only WILL get the wrong guy in, but DESERVE to have further damage done to our country.

                18. Again this thing won’t let me edit.  I also meant to ask you…what are the two issues specifically that you’re talking about?  

                  The two biggest ones I’ve heard are his stance on civil rights legislation which he’s defended quite eloquently before and can do again if need be and the one I know you’ve tried to take me to task on which is his partaking in the allocated funds to get some money back for his district which he didn’t sound so hot before but I think he can come back better on as long as he prepares himself better next time for that question.

          3. Yep so am I. But you know whats even better than a guy with no record? Someone with a record who has proven she works for the people and not her party.  

            1.  As I have stated previously, until she declares she is not a candidate. If she declares then I will be all for taking a hard look at what she proposes as far as policy goes in the matters pertaining to national issues.

        2.  It’s a big deal to me, too.  I like folks with no political record.

          I am all in with a Palin campaign, but I like Mr. Cain so far. I have my reservations with him, but I’m willing to see how he does on the big stage first.

    1. You are right of course. However, I don’t think that Sarah would be too happy if the pool thinned too much and the competition for the nomination weakened.

      Someone as noble as Sarah would feel diminished in her own statue if the victory and nomination came too easily to her.

      For that reason she is always so cheerful, positive about potential opponents and praises them wherever it is possible. 

      Still, it looks like the entire matter is being controlled by some higher force as her rivals and detractors are dropping out of the political scene and the race like flies…

    2. You’ve got a good point, Steven. On FN Hannity show, Carl Rove’s comment on Sarah Palin is no longer dismissive nor snearing, in view of the present reality with Republican candidates. He raised a solid point indeed that SP is the most nationwide well-known candidate w.r.t. the rest of the candidates, her experience, preparedness from 2008, and her stats are ahead comparatively.

      Not that we need/care about this RINO strategist punditry, yet it’s the first time I see Rove gives credence to Sarah Palin. If Sarah Palin decides to jump into the fray (with fire in the belly), there’s a very strong possibility that she’ll win the primary, and she’ll unite Tea Party and Republican GOP solidly behind her to win the 2012. Palin/West a strong winning ticket.

    3. A CEO for Godfather’s Pizza is not going to be President of the United States. A 2-term Congressmen from Minnesota is not going to be President of the United States (and I am not denigrating their significant accomplishments, its just an historic fact.). 
         Why not? They put a freakin community organizer into the white house!! 

  19.  I do hope people realize she is not going to endorse Hermain Cain. She is just giving him the respect he deserves. She loves the fact that he is not a Washington insider. But he has never held any kind of political office and has no political record. She will be running against him but does respect him.

      1. Political contestants may not neccesarily be political enemies, same for the supporters and fans, cheering their own team while booing other team in  political world cup arena. Isn’t that part of the fun in competition?

    1.  You have a point.  That is one more reason why she should run.  From what I have read and heard, it appears that Romney is the Republican Establishment’s golden boy.  They seem to have instructed Huckabee to lay low while they nominate Romney. I hope I am wrong but besides Huck’s soul searching, that was one principal reason (I think) why Huckabee backpedaled.
      Listening to Krauthammer always gives me an insight about how the RNC thinks (for e.g Christine O’Donnell).  Yesterday, Kraut diminished Herman Cain by comparing him to a show man and further insinuated that he would take away votes from Bachmann. How does one take away votes from another person from the same party unless your are a clear favorite?  But no one will take votes from Romney?  Are they going to set up with Romney like they did us with McCain?

  20. Yes, Sarah should run.  She has the clarity of thought that comes from real life experience, so unlike the faculty lounge liberals and their spokespersons in the lame stream media.  She threatens them because her intellect is superior, and she connects with real people.

    1. Man, running for American president is much like American idol best reality show today. Not only the contestants have to have political qualification, political smart and savy, CEO or otherwise community organizing skills, they have be able to sing and dance, to talk show or talent show, play sexophone, piano, or guitar while tab dancing, to act standup comedy or play monologues, dancing with the stars, …  and much more.

  21. Sarah gets it. Her goal being to make sure that Hos Oneness is not re-elected is right on target (pardon the violent metaphor) It may be her running and winning, It may be Sarah backing someone else, It may be something completely outside of the ‘box’. Sarah-Cuda has been confounding and confusing the Dems since The Republican Convention.  I trust Sarah and know that she will do whatever is best and I hope she keeps the PROGS guessing and off balance until it is to late.  There will be some times we are concerned or worried, but I also know this is going to be a fun election.

  22. Run Sarah Run!!

    We have never donated to, nor campaigned for, anyone. We will however donate to and campaign for you. We would also donate to and campaign for Allen West. Run for POTUS and draft West as your VP. Please!! Everyone we know LOVES that ticket.

    Palin/West 2012!

    And, As Always – Anyone but Obama!

      1. I read it. Andy McCarthy is my favorite regular at the ever-squishy NRO. Probably because he usually discusses the facts, not “candidates’ chances.”

        Sadly, at some point, the phrase “borderline psychopathic” might have to be used if this Administration continues to destroy what the Founders intended.
