Palin will run in 2012 if you want her to

Taking time out from bashing out-of-touch elites, Sarah Palin went to West Palm Beach on Wednesday to tape a webcast for newsmax.com and made a laughable pronouncement. According to Jose Lambiet's "Page 2 Live" blog at The Palm Beach Post, the former half-term governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee said that she would run in 2012 if "the American people" want her to.

Earth to Palin: they don't.

Now, this might difficult for Palin or her legions of fans and admirers to accept, but "the American people" have consistently said they don't think she is qualified or should be president. You will recall that last month I said Sarah Palin is everywhere -- and going nowhere. A CBS News poll released on Oct. 6 shows nothing has changed.

Her overall favorable rating rests at 22 percent. Among Independents -- the folks who decide elections -- she is liked by just 21 percent. Meanwhile, 48 percent of those polled have an unfavorable view of her. An additional 29 percent said they don' t know her or are undecided about her. Ultimately, a whopping 64 percent of respondents think she would not make an effective president. The same number of Independents hold that view, as do 45 percent of Republicans.

Palin told her Palm Beach audience that she wasn't sure if voters were ready for her "unconventional," "out-of-the-box" style. As the polls have shown since late 2008, they're not.

Sorry Jonathan, but she's going to go rogue. When you can draw 2500 people to a turkey dinner/speech and raise 1 million for scholarships day after day with a 22% favorable rating, just think what she could do with a 35% favorable. I'm planning on renting a billboard in my area to let her know that the American people want her to "RunSarahRun"

Dear Comrade Americans:

We old Soviet Union apratchniks who planted Sarah Heathevich and Todd Palinsky in your country as babies back in 1964 are very much hoping you nominate and vote our girl Sarah as president. She is loyal Russian, note how happy she is that she sees Mother Russia from house in Alaska and how Todd Palinsky has worked to eject liberate Alaska from boot heel of American capitalist conqueror and return Alaska to Russia.

We happy you put Sarah Palinsky as President. Her policies as Republican will bring Communist Revolution to America because Republican evil i team with al Queda to make American middle class no longer middle class, just poor.

Cheer three times for Sarah Palinsky! Drill, baby, drill!

Shhhhh, Jonathan !

That's why we want her to run, because that would be the easiest way to get President Obama re-elected.

It wouldn't be bad for Palin either.
I'd bet after a run like that, Fox would probably even Palin her own comedy show.

yes america needs palin! but wasn't she born in canada? i'm not saying she was- just asking the question. we haven't seen her birth certificate, so don't really know one way or another if she's a 'natural born' american. if she 'says' she wasn't born in canada i'll take her at her word at face value... but it's really time she addresses the canada issue. she's never answered the question. i think the media has a responsibility to ask that question. also- even though she does claim to be christian, that doesn't mean she really is. if we can't trust her on the canada issue, how do we know we can trust her claim on being christian. i mean, we KNOW she's been palling around with a witch... palin just isn't one of us!

lindalovejones; all,

to Ms Jones: BHO has the SAME chance as i do to be POTUS on 01/21/2013 = NONE.


face it, he & the DIMocRATS party of lunatics, union bosses, Chicago machine pols, LEFTIST extremist & outright common criminals are FINISHED in just about 3.5 weeks.

ordinary people outside the beltway have NO use for them except the DIMs being EX-officeholders, as they are NOT trusted with our government & our LIBERTY.
(the amusing part about the DIMs debacle is that the DIMocRATS did it to themselves, when they passed "obamacare", after over 75% of voters just said, "NO!" to "government-run healthcare".)

to all: fyi, i did a "by-race count" this AM. the best i can figure out is about 83 seats in the HoR go GOP & 11 or 12 DIMocRAT seats are turning GOP in the Senate. = thank the hundreds of thousands of hardworking/honest/honorable volunteers of the TEA PARTY for returning your Constitutional Republic back to you on 11/02/10.

Hum... one survey some weeks back showed 52% of Americans think Sarah shared their values vs 40% for President Obama.

Out of 66 conservative bloggers .. Sarah was tops at 33%

And Sarah (as VP) only managed 57 million votes against Obama's 66 million... but...
how many repubs stayed home because of McCain ? how many repubs voted for Obama ? how many Independents has Obama lost ? how many suffering Jews ? blacks ? gays ? hispanics ? students ? millions at least...

Hillary Dems are increasingly furious at Obama and the destruction of the Democratic party... who will they vote for ?

My thinking is 70 million in 2012 for Palin vs 55 million for Obama.

Capehart, I believe that Sarah Palin is the only Republican politician with national name recognition. In addition, there is no question about her birth certificate and her respect for America's institutions.

If Palin runs it will be because she wants to indulge herself with the belief that there are enough dumb Americans who will put her in the White House.

I can see President Palin talking to her constituency. Her thoughts will be so profound that she will at best have no more than one or two sentences on each topic that is raised. Then she'll add: 'You know what I mean'.

I know what she means and that is that she is very very dumb and doesn't know it. She is so dull-witted that she is dangerous.

Palin has my vote.

Obama will be lucky to make it to 2012.

No way will he be a two term President.

The laws that have been broken by him and his backers will catch up to him.

O thinks that being Pres means that he gets away with whatever he wants to do, no matter how he does it.

Reality check. Obama noted, just the other day that if he base does not wake up, then his agenda will be in trouble.

Reality check 2. Within minutes of the articles repeating his speech, thousands of people logged on to say: Yep, you finally figured it out...we do not like your agenda and want it stopped.

Sarah can't win, but the 22% of the population who like her have disproportionate influence because they are the people who get involved in the nomination/primary process. This makes it conceivable that she could get the nomination, just as it explains GOP candidates like Angle and O'Donnell and Rand, etc.

Run, Sarah, run!

I am more shocked and amused with each passing day at how deeply embedded Sarah Palin is in the heads of the leftist elite. It is simply amazing. They seem to wake up thinking about her, spend their entire day thinking about her, fall asleep thinking about her, and have nightmares about her. It is a form of mental deterioration on the part of the left which I find oh so delightful to watch.

I dont want her to run because radicals like you Capehart wont be satisfied until you have destroyed this woman and her family completely. You have tried and failed so far but you wont stop Im sure of that. All in your zest to get this incompetent and unqualified Obama re-elected. If Sarah runs most likely the Obamabots will win and we cannot afford any more years of Obama ...The last 20 months have been filled with enough Obama disasters for many years to come. So get out there and support the candidates that you believe in Sarah and wait for a Cabinet position that will open up for you. Obama is not qualified for any position except the male genital washing study in Africa that OUR Stimulus money is paying for. Capehart should join him there too.... he'd enjoy going to work each and every day.

Palin is driven totally by money. President doesn't pay enough unless she can setup a lot of kickbacks for herself. I've read that she gets 700,000 for an appearance now. It seems that the more ignorant a candidate is, the more they can command for fees.

It is fascinating to read the opinions about Obama. Tell me, just what section of the Constitution has he 'trashed?' What laws has he broken? Who says that 75% of us were against health care reform? All the people I know are pleased with this start of reform, which was badly needed, and would never be tackled by the wealthy Republicans who would rather fund wars than feed hungry kids.
As far as Sarah, it is hard NOT to think about her when the media she hates reports her every cough. I was on vacation for two weeks this summer with no TV and no newspaper, and it was so refreshing not to be bombarded with Palin every day. She is like a cancer on this country.
Palin's ego (also known by her as the voice of God) will tell her to run. Palin's ego will keep her running from the media. Palin's ego will allow her ONE debate against the Republicans, which she will again try to turn into a discussion of energy in Alaska, wink, and smile coyly. Only, unlike her debate with Biden, these guys will never let her get away with nonsense. Strike 1.
She will have to talk to media that is not on the Saudi payroll eventually. Strike 2.
She will realize that she will be using a lot of her new found millions to run a campaign...and that, should hell freeze over, she will be taking a gigantic pay cut and have to actually do work every single day, not hang out with a part time legislature. Strike 3.
Sorry, SP, you seem to be out.

Although not fond of Palin initially, I have grown to appreciate her because she drives the lefties into a carpet chewing rage. If her ratings are so low why does the leftist media waste so much time ridiculing her? Palin and Obama are very much alike in the passion they generate from their detractors and supporters. Capehart gives the standard view of Palin from the left. Obama is viewed in a similiar light from the right as a feckless, ineffectual empty suit, a pure creation of the leftist media.

The big difference is most of big media including editors, producers, columnist, on air personalities and Hollywood types HATE Palin. They don't just dismiss her but for some visceral,gut feeling they fear her and what she represents.

Jonathan, please. Americans now believe that Obama was severely underqualified to be president. Suddenly, liberal journalists respect the outcry of the American people so long as they can convey it through the voices of weak polls released by CBS. However; they care less about that outcry when we are SCREAMING in opposition to Barack Obama's socialist policies like Obamacare and the raising of taxes.

The media's obsession with Palin when the woman holds no office right now is very telling especially when not one Democrat running for Congress now wants Obama in their corner.

It's is the most transparent display ever and Sarah has plowed through you for the past two years and is nowhere near done.

When your policies are right and honest, the American people eventually come around.

Obama's bandwagon support mirrors the support Justin Biebar or the Jonas Brothers get.

Sarah's rise though -- one supporter at a time -- will stand the test of time.

You know, I sincerely believe that the media is clueless as to how irrelevant they are becoming to the decision-making processes of Americans now with regard to the folks we select to represent us.

Take into consideration that is the person who is actually president now which is the one being avoided by every Democrat running to save their seats now, not one of his policies is being campaigned on (especially healthcare).

Yet, they continue to obsess about Sarah Palin's approval and electability which by all objectionable evidence measurements, she's in much better shape now than he is.

Obama's approval mirrored the approval of Justin Niebar and the Jonas Brothers among teenagers. It was hot for about 5 minutes. Then, in lieu of fizzling out slowly, it was stomped out in less than a year. He tanked faster than any President since 1953.

Now, we are supposed to rely on the MSM to tell us who the American people deem qualified? After this mess!? Who are they kidding???

And who takes these pieces seriously anymore?

This is less about the electability of Sarah Palin than it is the media trying to tell us what to believe.

But, one thing we did learn -- especially from 2008, is that we will no longer allow the media to shape who it is we support.

Palin's views on the issues are much closer to that of the majority of Americans than Obama's ever were. And his awful approval numbers right now mirror that fact.

So, the media won't cover those. They won't tell us how afraid the Dems are of the President, so they are now sending out Michelle as a sad (and I do mean SAD) versions of our Sarah --- who thas; right before our eyes, reformed and re-shaped the Republican party.

As we know, the media will continue to obsess over her even though she is not elected to anything right now.

And Jonathan, I promise you, we see right through it all.

I completely disagree with this article. Sarah Palin's "legions of fans and admirers" are made up of the American people. I believe Sarah Palin has proven herself a woman of character. I wish the media would prove themselves to have some moral character as well, and stop blatantly being so biased and actually report objectively.
In 2007 Palin reportedly had the highest rating of all governors in the United States. Looking at her time as governor she did so much good for her state. A few short months later the national media got a hold of her and skewed her before the American people. Even to the point that this once highly approved governor resigned from office. Someone even tried to burn down her church with women and children inside and it was completely ignored by the media. Sarah Palin was torn apart, while it seemed that according to the media Obama couldn't do anything wrong.
What we need in office is someone with a moral character not another politician running for an agenda.
I'm tried of the media telling me that if I think Obama is wrong it's because I'm racist. This completely disregards everything Martin Luther King stood for because the only focus is Obama's skin color and not who he as a person. On August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King stated "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
Judging someone should not be by the color of their skin, if they are male or female and what political party they are in. We need to look past all of this, and look at the content of their character.

Palin's supporters are fantasizing if they believe that she will be a serious candidate for President. The very fact than in the two years since John McCain's desperate move to shake up his campaign by nominating her that in every successive poll taken she seems to fare worse cannot be lost on the republican party.

Look. People make the mistake of thinking that drawing large crowds is somehow an indicator of electoral viablility. I remind you all that in 1968, Eugene McCarthy had a similar effect, drawing immense crowds of young people who caravanned across the country in their little VW beetles to attend his rallies. McCarthy was a media sensation, drew the same sort of media fascination that Palin draws now, and even made a failed run for the nomination.

What McCarthy found out is that one can be deceived by the energy and emotion apparent at such political rallies when they actually have to face the broader American electorate. I remember reading McCain's lips at one of those McCain-Palin rallies in 2008 when in a burst of over stimulated enthusiasm he mouthed to Palin: "Man, isn't this crazy! Obama is toast!"

After the election, it became painfully clear that both McCain and Palin were flat out stunned by their loss. And so were their supporters. Why? Because they relied on a fictional, self deluding scenario, fed by a drama-hungry media that took the size of the McCain-Palin rallies and a series of partisan, wish fulfilling polls over the pre-election weekend that convinced them that McCain-Palin were surging.

This is what can happen when the wish becomes father to the lie.
