Palin says she might run for high office again

Recommended Posts

You know what I find so interesting about this Sarah Palin Story?

 

It is that My sources are telling me that your group "The Democrats" ARE ACTIVELY TRYING TO DESTROY HER POLITICALLY.

 

Perfect timing for me to leave ALL message boards by January 1st.

Palin says she might run for high office again

WASILLA, Alaska — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she wouldn't hesitate to run for the presidency in four years if it's God's will, even though she never thought Campaign 2008 would be "as brutal a ride as it turned out tobe."

 

In a series of interviews in the wake of last Tuesday's elections, Palin said she had no problem with Republican presidential nominee John McCain, but that she resents rumors she said were spread about her and her family by the Arizona Republican's aides. She emphatically denied that she was a drag on the GOP ticket.

 

"I think the economic collapse had a heckuva lot more to do with the campaign's collapse than me personally," the governor said in an interview broadcast Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show.

 

Palin also said "There were a lot of times I wanted to shout out, 'Hey, wait a minute, it's not true.' It's pretty brutal."

 

Nevertheless, the relatively obscure governor of Alaska, whose selection for the ticket by McCain last August brought excitement — and controversy — to the 2008 campaign, said she would be eager to do it all again under the right circumstances.

 

"I'm like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I'm like, don't let me miss the open door," Palin said in an interview with Fox News on Monday. "And if there is an open door in '12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I'll plow through that door."

 

In the wide-ranging interview, Palin said she neither wanted nor asked for the $150,000-plus wardrobe the Republican Party bankrolled, and thought the issue was an odd one at the end of the campaign, considering "what is going on in the world today."

 

"I did not order the clothes. Did not ask for the clothes," Palin said. "I would have been happy to have worn my own clothes from Day One. But that is kind of an odd issue, an odd campaign issue as things were wrapping up there as to who ordered what and who demanded what."

 

"It's amazing that we did as well as we did," the governor said of the election in a separate interview with the Anchorage Daily News.

 

"I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration? How have there been blunders with war strategy under a Republican administration? If we're talking change, we want to get far away from what it was that the present administration represented and that is to a great degree what the Republican Party at the time had been representing," Palin said in a story published Sunday.

 

Palin has scheduled a series of national interviews this week with Fox, NBC's "Today" show and CNN. She also plans to attend the Republican Governors Association conference in Florida this week.

 

Palin has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2012. She also could seek re-election in 2010 or challenge Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Still uncertain is the fate of Sen. Ted Stevens, who is leading in his bid for another term but could be ousted by the Senate for his conviction on seven felony counts of failing to report more than $250,000 in gifts, mostly renovations on his home. If Stevens loses his seat, Palin could run for it in a special election.

 

Palin and McCain's campaign faced a storm of criticism over the tens of thousands of dollars spent at such high-end stores as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus to dress the nominee. Republican National Committee lawyers are still trying to determine exactly what clothing was bought for Palin, what was returned and what has become of the rest.

Quiet honestly Human I really hope you do not leave the Boards. I personally want to thank you for your insights in the elections, and the all the major topics that was brought to the for front by you. So I guess I for one would like you to stay.

Thank You Raven, It's been an experience in here.

My sources are NOT Republican, but I had to make sure that the original source was not trying to goat me.

 

I checked it out with three other sources who don't know each other, and the three confirmed what the first one told me.

 

I aint no sweet heart myself, but dear god she aint running for president yet and to start before President Elect Barack Obama takes over shows me a REAL viciousness by the democrats.

I think it would be interesting if Governor Palin replaced Alaska Senator Ted Stevens in the Senate. I am sure she would gain alot more experience of the Beltway political culture.

 

In the entire course of the Senate's history, only four members have been convicted of crimes. They were: Joseph R. Burton (1905), John Hipple Mitchell (1905), Truman H. Newberry (1920), and Harrison Williams (1981). Newberry's conviction was later overturned. Mitchell died. Burton, Newberry, and Williams resigned before the Senate could act on their expulsion.

I liked John McCain for his service to our Country, and that I thank him for, but for Palin that is a different story. I do not believe in mixing church and state in decisions effecting our country, or someone's personal life.

 

If their is a woman who will run for office in 2012 then I really hope it would be Ms. Rice or Senator Clinton. Both woman have the knowledge and tenure to be President.

 

But in the meantime congratulations to President Elect Barack Obama.

"McCain Adviser" Revealed To Be A Hoax

"Martin Eisenstadt" Fooled MSNBC And Other News Organizations With Phony Claims

 

NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2008

 

(AP) MSNBC was the victim of a hoax when it reported that an adviser to John McCain had identified himself as the source of an embarrassing story about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the network said Wednesday.

 

David Shuster, an anchor for the cable news network, said on air Monday that Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser, had come forth and identified himself as the source of a Fox News Channel story saying Palin had mistakenly believed Africa was a country instead of a continent.

 

Eisenstadt identifies himself on a blog as a senior fellow at the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy. Yet neither he nor the institute exist; each is part of a hoax dreamed up by a filmmaker named Eitan Gorlin and his partner, Dan Mirvish, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

The Eisenstadt claim had mistakenly been delivered to Shuster by a producer and was used in a political discussion Monday afternoon, MSNBC said.

 

"The story was not properly vetted and should not have made air," said Jeremy Gaines, network spokesman. "We recognized the error almost immediately and ran a correction on air within minutes."

 

Gaines told the Times that someone in the network's newsroom had presumed the information solid because it was passed along in an e-mail from a colleague.

 

The hoax was limited to the identity of the source in the story about Palin - not the Fox News story itself. While Palin has denied that she mistook Africa for a country, the veracity of that report was not put in question by the revelation that Eisenstadt is a phony.

 

Eisenstadt's "work" had been quoted and debunked before. The Huffington Post said it had cited Eisenstadt in July on a story regarding the Hilton family and McCain.

 

Among the other victims were political blogs for the Los Angeles Times and The New Republic, each of which referenced false material from Eisenstadt's blog.

 

And in July, Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones magazine blogged an item about Eisenstadt speaking on Iraqi television about a casino in Baghdad's "Green Zone."

 

Stein later realized he'd been had.

 

"Kudos to the inventor of this whole thing," Stein wrote. "My only consolation is that if I had as much time on my hands as he clearly does, I probably would have figured this out and saved myself a fair amount of embarrassment."

Only Sarah Palin would think an army of "mama grizzlies" is a good idea. She is building one -- made of right-wing governors.

 

Palin is on an endorsement spree -- in just this past week she's thrown her fundraising power and media savvy behind far-right candidates for governor in South Carolina and New Mexico with more that are sure to come.

 

Why? Because Sarah Palin has plans -- and she knows 37 new right-wing governors would pave her way. So she's joined the RGA in an attempt to create an army of "mama grizzlies" just like her, to help impose her narrow and radical vision of America from state to state AND set up Republican wins across the country in 2010 and beyond.

 

 

Sarah Palin is targeting governors' races because she knows they have more control over setting the national agenda -- and laying the groundwork for Republican victories -- than any other office-holders.

 

The Far Right's victories in recent primaries should be a wake-up call to every Democrat. Republicans nominated Rand Paul, a Kentucky Tea Party activist, and threw U.S. Senator Bob Bennett out of office in Utah -- one of the most conservative members of the Senate -- because he wasn't conservative enough.

 

And Sarah Palin wants to do this in 37 governors' races across America this November.

 

ust look at Arizona to see what Sarah Palin is trying to do. Just this week, this is what she said about the state's new draconian immigration law: "Every other state on the border should emulate what Arizona has done."

 

Every other state should follow Arizona's lead? If we don't stop Palin, and let her install an army of clones in statehouses around the country, they just might.

I don't know why the question isn't asked by the mainstream media and by others if there's any connection with the contributions made to President Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration," Palin, a Fox News Channel contributor, said on "Fox News Sunday. - Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin

 

Of the $71,051 Obama raised from BP-related sources, all of it came from individual employees, as Obama did not accept contributions from political action committees. During the entire 2008 election cycle, the company's PAC and employees favored Republicans in their giving at a ratio of about 3-1. And the oil and gas industry as a whole gave Palin and her running mate John McCain $2.4 million -- more than double the $901,000 Obama collected from the industry overall. BP itself is currently ranked as #106 on the Center's "Heavy Hitter" list of companies and organizations that spend the most on federal campaign contributions.

Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin please just go in a grizzly bear cave with Yogi and Boo Boo. You are as dumb as dumb can get.

 

This dimwit half-term governor built up an election mantra by liberalizing oil drilling policies, promoting rigs as safe. Now she is criticizing the exact same thing she promoted. She conveniently forgets her address on offshore drilling environmentally sensitive areas of Alaska would leave a little ecofriendly footprint. Now Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin wants to point the finger at the Obama administration for not being able to swoop in and solve the problem and yet she has no solutions to offer.

 

Does Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin approve of the administration's plan to separate the functions of the Minerals Management Service? Does she approve of mandate to improve auto fuel standards? It would be great if the Republican Party would support these moves and propose even stronger ones.

 

When the Alaskan oil pipeline was originally approved it was supposed to benefit the country as a whole by limiting the distribution of the sweet crude to U.S. consumption. Instead, from 1996 through today it's almost all sold to Korea, Japan and China. That's because it's a fungible commodity sold to the highest bidder on the world market. That's why "DRILL BABY DRILL" makes no sense at all.

 

The oil doesn't stay here it's sold on the world market. The reason Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin was so hopped up is not national security, it's all about Alaskan security as under her they began taxing oil companies at 50% of their profits. She couldn't care less about the rest of the country as we don't participate in the the grab bag of oil revenue.

 

If you can't see through Sarah "DRILL BABY DRILL" Palin hypocrisy by now, I suggest you go sign up for some classes at your local middle school.

You see this is the problem when dealing with the simplistic solutions offered by the Sarah Palins of the world.

 

One can come to a consensus over a difference of opinion, but it is simply impossible to create a dialog with a difference of reality.

 

First off we need to address this FANTASY of "American" oil companies drilling

American oil as a means to energy independence.

 

The fact is that though a series of profit sharing agreements made a generation ago it is simply more profitable for Oil companies to process imported oil.

 

It is why this country EXPORTS oil.

 

What Sara and the other big oil mouthpieces always fail to mention is how they expect Exxon/Mobile or Other MULTINATIONAL corporations to use American oil for the American market.

I don’t hear anyone suggesting that we nationalize the oil.

 

Hell, these corporations don’t even pay American tax on their profits, do we really expect them to be concerned about America’s independence?

I was laughing so hard yesterday. Sarah Palin’s speech at California State University at Stanislaus was carried live on FOX40.com and after it was finished some reporters, apparently unaware the live feed was still going, could be heard joking about Palin’s speech:

 

“The dumbness doesn’t just come from soundbites.”

 

“I can’t believe she quoted Kennedy – twice.

 

“How am I going to write about this-there’s nothing there-answer well there’s your story.”

 

 

Can you say big dummy :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Hey Demorons,

Listen to Sarah Palin's Speech at The Oil Palace in Texas

 

(Excerpt) Read more at governorpalin4president.blogspot.com

 

Although I didn't click on your link above because I think SP is a moron, the name of the blogspot ain't right because Palin is not governor of anything: she resigned her post half-way through her term.

She's a quitter.

And an idiot. :blink:

Let's analyze the Tea Party Express. First, you have Scientologist attorney, John P. Coale who advises Sarah Palin. John's Scientologist wife, Greta van Susteren, is a Fox News anchor. John was formally Hillary's campaign fundraiser, Ms. Magazine editorial board member. Second, you have Palin's manager, R. Rebecca "Becki" Donatelli, President of Campaign Solutions/The Donatelli Group and eDonation.com, as well as Chairman of Connell Donatelli, Inc. Becki is married to Frank J. Donatelli, a White House official under President Ronald Reagan and now chairman of Gopac, a Republican group, and trustee for the Fund for American Studies with founder and chairman of Phillips International and Eagle Publishing, Inc. Thomas L. Phillips.

 

None of these people represent the working class to me.

...Glenn Beck's radio show today:

 

CO-HOST: How would you handle a situation like the one that just

developed in North Korea? [...]

 

SARAH PALIN: But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies.

We're bound to by treaty.

 

CO-HOST: South Korean.

 

SARAH PALIN: Eh, Yeah. And we're also bound by prudence to stand with our

South Korean allies, yes.
