Sarah Palin: If I Become A Distraction I Won’t Run

Sarah Palin had this to say to Sean Hannity on Wednesday:



I found this video at Fox Nation. Here is a sampling of comments there.
freedombaby,
I would vote for you, but don't run. You won't win, because there is too much media against you, and too many in your own party against you

bouco,
I love Sarah, but I don't think she'll win if she runs. Too polarizing.
RNC chairman would be the PERFECT job for her. Don't run for prez, Sarah... please

NinjaMidget,
I have nothing against Palin, but I do think she would be a distraction. I think she could play a serious supporting role, but the lamestream media has done a pretty good job of vilifying her and she could not overcome that in 2 years. We need a good strong Reagan conservative that the media has not had a chance to tear down to run in 2012

hemorrhoid,
I'm going to laugh when Sarah Palin moves in the WH and all you liberal dumb @sses eat your heart out

noblinkster,
I feel that Sara Palin would definitely be a distraction if she ran for President and would be a better force for conservatives to "get out the vote" and rally America to vote out Obama!!!

werkenstiff,
As a conservative, I hope she doesn't run (too polarizing) and realizes she can have a more positive effect on the election and get more done if she doesn't . Kinda like quitting being Governor in order to get more done and have more influence. Which I completely agree with
IMHO, 75% of the comments at Fox Nation reflected the sentiment of the above comments.

They’ve said similar about that ‘B’ actor, intellectual-lightweight, celebrity, Reagan. People knew the ‘blue-bloods’ were wrong then, as they are now about Sarah. And though Reagan was no Palin, he still ended up being one of our best Presidents ever. And history repeats itself.

joe said...

Sarah, you are correct.

You would be to much of a distraction.

YOU, would become the issue rather than the economy and jobs. You are tailor made for the Dems to run against.

Bill589 said...

Palin has a funny new Facebook post up titled: "A Thanksgiving message to all 57 states."

Unless you’re an Obama fan, I think you have to appreciate the humor.

I'm glad it's so comforting to you that "NinjaMidget" and "Noblinkster" think she shouldn't run.

We discussed this at length on C4P and Hot Air. She clarified her comments the next day on Tammy Bruce's radio show. The audio is on C4P.

That's all I'm going to say on this topic.

One can see how much Obama is hated when Palin fans threaten to sit out if she is not the candidate. RWN, you threatened that and I lost respect for you. Illinoisguy

Oh, and it was terribly dishonest of Hannity to act as if electability had ANYTHING to do with leading a GOP poll. Especially true, when that same poll showed Mitt ROmney beating Obama and Palin getting clobbered. Illinoisguy

Right Wingnut said...

I-Guy,

You're kidding yourself if you don't think people would sit out IF the reason she doesn't run is knee-capping by "anonymous Romney advisors" and "GOP party elders unwilling to give their names." If she runs, and loses fair and square, that's a different story. As for ROS, there are several in your camp who claim they would not vote for Palin. Did you lose respect for them too?

A large portion of the primary electorate is fed up with this nonsense. Eventually, people will take a stand.

Bill589 said...

If the ‘Blue bloods’ choose Mitt, and he’s all warm and cozy with them, the TPM won’t choose Mitt. It’s a very serious time for choosing. We have to beat Obama in 2012. Palin is his arch-nemesis. She has shown us that she has the cojones to beat him. Mitt hasn’t shown us this yet.

Yes, I don't like it one bit when any of our camps would help Obama be elected, which is what happens when a Republican 'sits out'.

I for one won't sit out. Whether I vote Republican or not is another matter. I am in a bad mood politically and thus no mood for Obama lite.

I'm not a Republican.

Doug NYC GOP said...

Should one vote for a 3rd Party candidate, they might just as well sit out or vote for Obama, no matter what "mood" they be in.

Bill589 said...

Doug - So be it.
Depending on who the Blue Bloods pick - I’m not voting to lose liberty in just a slower manner than what Obama’s doing. I’d rather vote third party, and in years to come, explain to my grandchildren what liberty was like, and that I did my best to keep it for them.

That's a total cop out you communist lover!!!!

Right Wingnut said...

I'm an independent, who has never voted for a Democrat, and probably never will. I believe in the planks of the Republican party platform. However, it remains to be seen if the Party has learned from the mistakes that led to the '06 and '08 disasters. We need a president who has the cajones to stand up to the establishment and special interests. Other than Sarah Palin, I don't think any candidate likely to run fits the bill. Mike Pence, Jim DeMint, Rick Perry, and possibly Marco Rubio may fit the bill as well, but it's highly unlikely that any of them will run. If any one of them could show the ability to contend for the nomination, I would consider supporting them for the nomination...IF Palin does not run. I believe these are the folks she speaks of when she says she would support the "right" candidate if they were to emerge. Since it's not likely that any of those individuals will jump in, she will most likely run herself.

If the nominee is anyone but those mentioned above, it would be extremely difficult for me and many, many other conservatives to be motivated for the election. Some rationalize their potential decision to vote 3rd party or not vote at all in the presidential race by pointing out that the house is likely to stay in Republican hands, and that the 2012 senate races highly favor the GOP. That would leave the GOP in control of the purse-strings, which would result in four years of gridlock. Obama would not be able to pass any of his leftist agenda anyway.

Right Wingnut said...

The above scenario plays right into the hands of the Bushies. Perhaps they can talk Jeb into running by 2016.

cyclin8 said...

Then you're a commie lover too then RWN....give it to my girl or I'll take my ball and go home...so disappointing!!!!

Right Wingnut said...

Cyclin, Did you even read my post? Can you read? Does the "8" in your moniker stand for 8th grade?

I for one am not saying it has to be Mrs. Palin, but right now she is the best of the big 4 that would fight Socialism. As of now, Mr. Romney and Mr. Gingrich simply do not have what it takes to fight Socialism. They'd sooner use the Third Party scare tactic than defend and promote Conservatism. It did not work for them in NY-23 and it won't work national if they do not grow up and pull their socks up. Time to get a grip folks. Either promote Conservatism or prepare to lose.

I am really surprised how easily led by the nose, so caslled conservatives are. Look at the terminology you guys use, once it's spoon fed to you by your Talk Show gurus. "Blue Bloods" "Aristocracy" "Elites" etc. Is this what we have to suffer through until 2012 is decided? I am really beginning to believe there is an element in conservatism that just needs to be against something or have an enemy, to feel they are enpowered. First we had moderates, then RINO's, now we have the "Country Class" because that's what Papa Rush spouts all day.

This has nothing to do with any particular candidate anymore. It's a purge mentality that is certian to lead to defeat and the unintended outcome of allowing true antogonists win victory.

Really getting pathetic out there.

Ohio Joe- It is the grassroots that declared war on the republican party. You and your type have declared war on the party...purging the RINO'S and trying to force your incompetent Senate candidates down our throats and look where that got us. We lost the Senate. Now you are doing the same by trying to force the incompetent Sarah Palin into the race for the WH. She will not win because she is far to polarizing to beat Obama. Her idea of preparing to run for President is to do a BORING REALITY SHOW.

I would love to see all of your RIGHT WING NUTS leave the party. You guys are driving the common sense type conservative away. I think we could win without your support.

Sarah Palin has all ready become a distraction. She has proven herself to be very skilled in the art of self promotion but very short on solutions to all the problems facing our country. She should really step aside now and let the serious politicians take it from here.

Right Wingnut said...

Anon (I'm assuming Tracey),

I've already left the party, along with many others. More to follow if people like you continue with that message.
