Another vote for "She's an idiot!"
There is a simple fix for that. She just needs to insist that before every interview they show pictures or video of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Joe Biden. Then a list of Obama's accomplishments. People will then think she is Marilyn vos Savant by comparison.

Except the people who are in the middle watching this stupid game are sick of stupid people on both sides.

Palin has done NOTHING to erase the image of being incompetent.

I'm telling you.

The Republicans have a VERY good chance of winning some key positions in 2010 and 2012 because of how the country is heading in the wrong direction. But a Palin Pres or VP nomination will cause a second Obama term.
She just needs to insist that before every interview they show pictures or video of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Joe Biden
I know you're joking, but in all seriousness, the democrats know better than to put up Pelosi or Reid up for the presidency. Why don't the republicans see that Palin is basically the mirror image? We all know what would happen if Pelosi were on the VP ticket next time around. Why are the republicans unaware of the colossal failure that a Palin candidacy would be? (Or has been, as it were)

Proceed at your own risk, Republicans. The moderates are sick of Obama incompetency but WILL NOT replace it with an incompetency of a different color/animal.

Don't be stupid. Think!

spot on Aaron. I've been saying it since she ran with McCain. I like her folksy style and all that, but she will NOT sway one vote from the middle or left. A Con is a Con and will always vote so. Same with the Libs. It's us in the middle they need to sway and she aint doin' it for me either. I like her, but I'm not voting for her. Now, would I vote for her over Bammy??? That's another story but let's hope it doesn't come down to that.

Touche!

And you won't win an election with just the right wingers. They are only 1/3 the voting population.

You can refer back to this post in 2012 if it helps. Even the good media attention is bad for Palin. This focused effort to prop her up is going to falter. It is wasted energy.

That energy would be better spent introducing a more credible candidate.

I'm not saying that everyone needs to betray Palin and remove support, but I am saying that she is not good for the conservative political scene.

Sarah Palin has focused attention on the hypocrisy that pervades the Republican party, and she was instrumental in getting Obama elected. Now, perhaps the Republican party will pull it's head out of it's butt and return to the ideals it was founded on.

You make some good points Aaron. I would not argue them.

But, the situation in 3 years is hard to predict right now. If the Dems win the Congress & Senate again in 2010, this country will be ruined anyway. If the Cons win in 2010, we have a chance to survive and possibly repeal the damage the Dems have done and get rid of Palosi & Reid. Those 2 corrupt lefties seriously need to be thrown into the ash heap of history in Nov 2010.

If Obama keeps on the same path on the hard left in 2012, he WILL be a one term president. No matter who runs against him.

The real problem is that the voters keep looking for a messiah that can solve all their problems. The more they rely on government, the more that will be true. Palin or no Palin, you will get someone incompetent with that wishful thinking. We don't need a super brain. They are just more creative at taking more control. Government can't really attract a 'super brain' anyway because it can't pay them enough. So you just need someone in there who knows the limits of their power and knows to get out of the way of all the private sector super brains. It's not that complicated.

I don't think Palin will win. I think she will be the target and will absorb most of that attacks and someone else will slip through. But then again, this is how McCain got the nomination. The media attacked the stronger candidates and he slipped through. I think Palin is smarter than the media and the talking heads give her credit for and maybe she could win if they continue to underestimate her as they have overestimated Obama. But I think it will be a less known canidate.

there are some decent guys out there thinking about running, they just can't seem to get any traction.
And Havoc, you're exactly right. Recognize the limits of your power and get out of the way of the awesome machine we call capitalism and let the private sector right this ship. It can and will do it, if it can keep the gubbment monkey of it's back.

Hmmm, Eight years of Obama just might be what ends the Democrat party forever.
But for the record, Palin was responsible for almost getting McCain elected even though he was the worst choice the Republicans could have made! He was doing terrible until she came on board. She energised the conservative base, who for the record is the true majority in this country. We are sick of RINOs and NECONs and want another Reagan to help straighten out our economy and our direction.
We don't need the libs or the lost "moderates" who don't know who they want until they hear the lies they like. Even if anyone over the age of two should have been able to see through them like clean glass!

It's this attitude that causes lost elections.

Think about it. Say you were a democrat and said "We don't need the cons or the lost moderates who don't know what they want. Let's push our socialist agenda despite what the middle ground wants."

What do you think would happen? Would you be surprised to see them fall? I wouldn't. In fact, isn't this kind of happening right now?

Why don't you guys understand that this same attitude will kill the conservatives.

America DOES want a leader. You can tell yourself "We don't need the moderates" but you're just lying to yourself. You can't win this with the 33% of voters who consider themselves Republicans.

The math says you need about 18% of people from the moderates "you don't need" to vote for your guy. To me that says you DO need the moderates. Over half of them.

Do the math. Think. Ignore the moderates at your peril. It may not be a nice reality, but reality is just that, and when ignored, reality usually trods on anyway. I can pretend that the sun won't go down tonight but that doesn't make it so, just as you can pretend you don't need the moderates when you do!

Currently over fifty percent of Americans consider themselves conservatives. They just never get a conservative candidate to vote for. If they ever do you will see another Reagan landslide victory!

You are correct!

The Republicans should be looking 24/7 for the right candidate. Regardless of how good Palin is, she is tainted goods. The media has already gotten a good bead on her, and no matter what we think of the liberal media, they do matter because they reach many people.

Not sure where you are getting 51% conservatives. Check the above link.

Besides, just because someone is a conservative doesn't mean they will vote Republican. Consider Clinton, a "conservative democrat." Also consider that Obama campaigned as a moderate even though he is way left.

Trust me. I want to see a Republican in the White House soon.

I'm not making this stuff up. Republicans need to appeal to both conservatives and moderates. Palin isn't going to do that, IMO. Not unless she reverses her course and gets to sounding VERY smart on subjects. She just doesn't have "that thing" that inspires confidence in abilities. If she were to sound more read, I think she would. The President is pivotal in things like foreign policy and she sounds like a total meathead at that.

A post earlier eluded to the fact that we don't want a bright president because they just could just use their intelligence to control us. It said it's better if they know their limits on power and just stay out of the way. I don't see it that way. And neither would you if someone from the Democrat side were using this argument. Try to look at it without bias. To what you are saying.

You prefer a less intelligent president?

The President controls the bomb, foreign policy, the armed forces, etc. They must be intelligent enough to take the correct course of action. Palin has not given indications she can do this.

As biased as Couric was, Palin's answers showed us all just how unprepared she was for the presidency. She sounded as unprepared as you or I for it!

Love her all you want, just don't expect her to reel in the votes if you nominate her.

Just in case you missed it, she was running for VP. Not president.

No I didn't miss it.

And not only a few people noticed what I did; that due to the stress of the job and the age of McCain that there was a very good chance she would be acting president.

Would you elect me for VP? I'm not ready. But it'll be OK, it's just VP, right?

That's ridiculous!

Are you going to try to say that a VP should not be as qualified as the President? You can't seriously think that!

And when have I ever made a post that deserved such condescention? I'm on your side and you still don't get it.

Dude, you are running the same party line that got Obama in the white house! When are the Republicans going to realize their part in getting Obama elected?

Republicans complain and blame stupid voters. While possibly correct, how can that approach and attitude be productive?

Just the same. She was running for VP. You said she was running for President.

Do you suppose Biden would make a good President?
Also, you are running the same party line that got Obama in the white house! When are the Republicans going to realize their part in getting Obama elected?
I think we realize.

Can't hurt to educate the stupid voters.
