Short and sweet

Thune's not running.
At this rate, Palin may be the only man left standing. -- neo-neocon

Your Say

Palin just might be the best man for the job.

My dark horse money is on Kasich.

Anyone who has seen him give a speech never thought he would become president. I'm glad Thune is smart enough to avoid the ego-induced damage.

Now Romney needs to spend more time with his family. I supported him last time, any body but McCain, but Romney lost to the guy that lost to Obama. Romney for Tresurey Secretary, maybe. But he's not rough and tumble enough to win againt the Marxist revolutionary. Romney will play politely by the rules and give a good concession speech and his supporter will pat themselves on the back for how well they behaved as they lost and the country slips into the gulag.

A commentor on another blog pointed out the hell courageous men like Gov. Walker, Chris Christie, Allen West are catching for taking a stand against the Left. Consider what Palin has survived. She's always been the new Reagan for the new Carter. She can beat him. Obama knows that, the people know that, but the Left has so many tricks it will be bloody. What an answer it would be to the Islamo-ass-licking world for us to elect an unapologetically patriotic Christian woman whose motto demands drilling for domestic oil? In the light of Lara Logan's attack, in light of Obama's disdain for America and the Republic and Capitalism, screw them. Elect Palin to spite them.

The smart money doesn't want to be sitting in the Big Chair when it hits the fan. To save the country, the next president will have to be some combination of George Washington and Oliver Cromwell. Instead we will get some amiable lightweight.

It always surprises me that the Free Republic conservatives want to put a grrrl-power feminist in the White House.

Rid the GOP of the pack of limp willy losers currently running around as reissues for another election.

Then really vet the FNG's; find out all their hopes and desires; get the skeletons out. Make sure they have brass balls or steel tits. They're going to need them.

2012 is so crucial, we have to go with our best. That is Palin, beyond a doubt. And I would like to see Allen West as her running mate.

Two terms of Palin followed by two terms of West is about what the country needs to right the ship of state.

It always surprises me that the Free Republic conservatives want to put a grrrl-power feminist in the White House.

I'm thinking more along the lines of Joan of Arc.

I would just like to announce that I am officially not running for president. Please don't vote for me.

grrr!!

I like Palin and West.
I don't think either can win.
Was interested in Daniels, but he is wimping out.
He is not willing to stand up to the unions in his state.
A shame, as we so need a brave American right now.
Wish he would pull it together and run with Rubio or perhaps West.
Palin would lose, even if she has a great deal of support.
The press is corrupt and would never allow it.
The left has a hatred for Palin that is frightening.
She is too real for them.
Things are pretty scary right now.
America is.........

Unlike Jewel, I am willing to run. Know I wouldn't win, but one thing I know for sure is that I could do a hell of a lot better than Obama.
I would adhere to the Constitution, put the American people first, hire experts, give up a lot of my free time (it is only 3 years) and try to do the right thing.
Novel!!!!
I wouldn't party a lot. Time for that later. (the o's have been over budget from the beginning with all of the WH fetes)
My wife would just have to dig into the millions I was accumulating to hire her own designer. :)
Ha.
Ethics. Maybe that is why I am not a politician.
Perhaps it is a Palin syndrome.

Palin? You mean the reality show star and half-term governor of a state with almost no people? The Facebook queen whose books are ghost written and who failed to answer a "gotcha" question about what periodicals she reads? The VP candidate whose claim to foreign policy experience was that Putin flew over her state?

Yeah, good luck with that. If this is your idea of presidential timber, you're destined for a fifty state loss.
