Palin 2012 ????

Newt Gingrich feels Sarah Palin has a great start to become a primary ticket for the Presidency in 2012. Gag! Barf!!
I am so beside myself in disbelief and laughter with such a notion.


It's impossible to know how the Republican presidential field will stack up three years from now, yet former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says one candidate in particular may have a big head start.

Speaking at an event Monday sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Gingrich said Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's continued popularity among the GOP's base would give the former vice presidential candidate an instant boost in Iowa — the state whose caucuses, dominated by rank-and-file conservatives, kick off the primary season.

"Palin starts in Iowa with a substantial base," said Gingrich, who also noted how important the Iowa caucuses have proven to be in presidential campaigns.

He said Palin is "very formidable," and suggested the Alaska governor spend time developing "fairly sophisticated positions" on a range of issues.

Still, Gingrich said it's entirely too early to handicap the 2012 GOP presidential race, since it remains unclear which Republicans will run, and what the state of the economy will be.

"Nobody knows today who is going to fill the vacuum," said Gingrich. Link


The Presidency??!!! It is still unbelievable that popularity can still win over substance. And when I say substance, I mean intellect, knowledge and vettedness.
You Betcha, Palin is popular but she is a complete idiot. I can see Mitt Romney and all the other candidates from the past Republican Primary stepping up to the plate in 2012 - they would EAT her alive!  (Hmmm, that actually would be fun to watch)!

Her popularity, as I have seen, is that she is a Conservative, Evangelical Fundamentalist. Another one of those Right-Wing Bible-thumpers that feel God will solve all of America's troubles. Why is it that our Highest Executive Office in the most powerful nation can be reduced to a seat that can be obtained just because one is a Christian. When Palin was first nominated, it was that whole Harriet Miers thing again (her qualification to be a Supreme Court judge is that she is a "Christian".) Palin's nomination solidify the Conservative Base - the Christian Conservative Base.

Christians want another fellow believer in office - despite any shortfalls with experience and intellect - just get them in there so that God can rule our land.
Well, we had a Christian as President for the last 8 years - look at the sorry state our country and economy is it after he left!
