    Unfortunately Romney is the man to beat. I like him as a person, but he has a lot of political baggage, and most evangelicals are too bigoted to vote for a follower of Joseph Smith.

    I do think someone unexpected will rise in the end, but Romney's infrastructure and cash are going to be a tough battle.
    I wouldn't vote for anyone named after a piece of sports equipment. Why do you think Pad Buchanan never got anywhere?

    I would vote for a woman named Nike, if she had huge tits and a nice ass.

Her odds of announcing a presidential bid by the end of 2011 are only trading at 43%.
    Either Daniels or Pawlenty works for me. Huckabee? No way. I actually supported him until he made the statement that, if elected, he would change the Constitution for Jesus Christ. And Palin. You already know where I stand there.

    Romney has the albatross of being a Mass. Gov that instituted a big government healthcare system.

    Pawlenty is a warmer, a big government can save the earth type that looks to Jimmy Carter for wisdom... that's gonna haunt him in the primaries.

    Daniels really says a lot of good things but his Indiana plan is gonna be a tough thing to over come.

    Palin probably won't even run and if she does it's unlikely she'd win. The media did a bang up job of destroying her, so now it's impossible ot have an honest discussion about her. She isn't perfect, but she's not the bumbling hick moron that so many claim she is.


    I think it's gonna be a dark horse, someone no one is really talking about right now.

    I will be blunt here. If you really want a change from Obama, you are going to have to support someone who is not an idiot, and who is also electable. Palin fails on both counts. She is a cult of personality, rather than an infusion of ideas to the GOP.

    Don't buy it....its just propoganda from the GOP elite who are trying to keep Sarah Palin off the ticket. They know that the people of the GOP want Palin as their nominee but they want the nomination to go to someone within their power structure. They are trying to convince people that Palin isn't electable and if too many people buy into it, she won't be.

    But she isn't electable. Don't you remember how she was torn apart in the 2008 campaign, and by the likes of Katie Couric ffs!? As candidate her intellectual and political shortcomings would be magnified a hundredfold. That's what the GOP leadership is trying to avoid. If middle America, not the GOP heartlands alone, chose Obama over McCain, you think they'd swing way off to the extreme and support a Palin presidency? Of course, stranger things have happened, let's wait and see.

    It's pretty simple really. She would like to return America to a country that follows the Constitution, a country that isn't ghetto-ized by tax-and-spend welfare redistribution schemes. A country that is a leader in the world, not an apologist for being great. She wants to remove the burdens of government from our lives and from businesses. I'm sure she would like to cut and gut all those agencies with unelected officials that make laws, and have us less dependent on foreign sources of energy.

    In short, she's a Conservative who has 10-times the substance and spine as the fraud we have at the helm now.

    Obama is Al Sharpton with slicker delivery and packaging. A Reverend Wright trained welfare state poverty pimp who hawks the race card at every turn.

    I can't believe some people fail to understand Palin, and find it even more amazing how gutless people are.

    Andalublue: Yes Palin had a poor moment with Couric. Big deal. Obama gaffed his way through the campaign, sloughs off tough questions (and the press lets him), and is still in hiding. 2+ years has revealed what a moron our Dear Leader is, and what he thinks of us and this country... and you actually cite one instance Palin didn't do well as an example of her not being able to be elected? (Face Palm Icon) If that's the standard, Obama's past 2+ years is his send-off to spend a life sentence at The Gulag for Political Invalids.

    He was unqualified, he had enormous baggage with The Racist Wright and The Terrorist Ayers... he ran from all his so-called friends... but he is electable and Palin isn't?

    Sorry but having elected a lite-weight anti-American, and then claiming Palin (the anti-anti-American) isn't electable (especially after the midterms) goes right into The Encyclopedia of Bad Logic.

    Of course, there is something to be said for the herd-mentality. If Palin runs, my bet is she will overcome this hurdle; never on the left, but within the party... because she is a straight shooter. And if not 2012, perhaps 2020. She's still young.

    Her game is to play victim as she has been doing since at least the 2008 elections.
