And getting back to what Palin said...about not feeling enthusiasm for any of the candidates...I think the majority of republicans agree.

There's a lot to love about Newt.  And he certainly "paid his dues" to the conservative cause by taking the House away from the dems in the 1990s.  But I don't think he's ignited the same level of wildfire enthusiasm as Herman Cain did.  People are tentative in their support of Newt.  

But then maybe they're tentative about getting too gung ho about anyone...after the Cain implosion.


Friday or Saturday last week A pundit was opining on what the electorate was doing.  

He pointed out Newt was the absolute best thing for Romney to compete against.  Continuing to point out if Romney were to walk away with the nomination with out a fight and baptism he would sure get a shalakin in the fall.  I think I kind of agree.  I like Newt make no mistake but I am not convinced he can beat 0bama in the fall.  And that is with out question what I believe needs to happen for the betterment of the country.  

I am not convinced Romney can beat 0bama but with the idea of earning the nomination rather then winning it by default I think Romney might have the best shot at winning.  

I am so confused.  

But I do know this the others should exit stage left and allow these two to duke it out and train for the big event.  

None of the other candidates stand a snowballs chance in hell of winning the election.  And to stay in much longer will absorb the attention off the realistic candidates.

A thought on Palin.

A couple of years ago a good friend asked me about Sarah Palin.  I told him don't count this lady out of anything.  He continued with do you really think she is Presidential material.  And I responded with "it isn't what I think that matters it is what the electorate thinks that counts".  

No I don't think Palin is Presidential material but then again I don't think 0bama is Presidential material.  And the truth be known with my 20/20 hind sight Bush wasn't either.  

Palin with never sleep in the oval office (at least as a resident) but she has been, is and will continue to be a moving force in the conservative movement...

Yes!!!  And allow their supporters to make allegiances elsewhere.  I want to see where we really stand in the Newt v Romney matchup...and we won't know until the rest of these boobs pull out of the race.  Their loyal supporters need to be set free to pick another team....Team Newt or Team Romney.

Sarah Palin Will Be The Keynote Speaker At Right Online This Year

by Frances Martel
June 4th, 2012

Sarah Palin has remained rather mum since stepping out of the Republican primary last year, but it appears that she is planning a return to some prominence this summer. Palin has been announced as the keynote speaker for this year's Right Online conference, a reunion of bloggers and conservative writers that includes seminars on citizen journalism and newsgathering.

According to Politico, Palin will be delivering the Keynote at the event hosted by Americans for Prosperity and happening on June 15-16. It is the first time that Right Online will be separated in date and time from its left-wing twin, Netroots Nation. They also report that the focus of the conference will change to something more akin to Palin's forte - engaging people in social media in ways that convince them to become more politically active:
   "This year's meeting is focused on higher-level tactics and strategies than past year's editions of Right Online, which sometimes had the feel of a crash course on blogging 101. The Vegas conference features training on video exposes to be conducted by guerrilla video journalist James O'Keefe, a session on polling featuring conservative's favorite pollster Scott Rasmussen and a session moderated by columnist Michelle Malkin entitled 'How to Use Facebook & Twitter to Win,'¯ which will include instruction on using social media to drive narratives."

Besides giving the keynote address, Palin is set to introduce two films: Hating Breitbart, a film about the left's relationship with the late Andrew Breitbart, and Occupy Unmasked, which will focus on the popular 2011 political movement Occupy Wall Street.

I note that after milking the Tea Partiers for as much as she could, Palin has now returned to the traditional conservative wing of the GOP by endorsing Senator Orrin Hatch for re-election, rather than supporting his Tea Party opponent.

Sarah Palin: Condoleezza Rice would be "wonderful"

By KEVIN ROBILLARD | 7/13/12  

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the last GOP running mate, predicted former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would make a "wonderful" vice president for Mitt Romney.

"I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president, and she certainly has much more experience than our sitting president does today," Palin said Thursday night on Fox News's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

Palin was reacting to increased speculation Rice would be Romney's vice presidential pick, driven by conservative commentators Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh, both of whom have touted Rice in recent days.

Palin, who opposes abortion rights, wasn't concerned about Rice's own views on abortion.

"I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent, precious purposeful human life and showed that respect via being a pro-life candidate," she said. "We need to remember, though, that it's not the vice president that would legislate abortion, and that would be Congress's role. And we'll keep that in mind."

For her part, Rice has said in the past she has zero interest in elective politics.
===

Rice's experience?  

Like "Why We Know Iraq is Lying" - her op-ed in the New York Times as part of the propaganda for Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq?: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/01/23....html?pagewanted=print&src=pm

Or refusing to testify about Bush's "yellowcake uranium" lie in his State of the Nation address, when subpoenaed by a U.S. House of Representative's Committee - with the Bush White House asserting "Executive Privilege" to back up her refusal.

Why wasn't she found in "Contempt of Congress" like Holder was?

Never have been all that keen on Condi.  Would she be a good VP?  Might.  She has infinitely more experience than 0bama had when he was elected President.  But this is nothing more then an exercise in what if.  She hasn't a prayer of a chance.  She would bring nothing to the campaign and has to much baggage.  

For my money?  I'm betting on the Bob McDonnell or Marko Rubio possibly Bob Portman.  

Condi is nothing more then a slow news day.

Condi is great, but you nailed it...she brings more negatives to the table than positives.  

I don't know where I am on the VP lottery.  Rubio adds a lot to the ticket.

But knowing the Romney campaign like we do...they nearly always play it safe.  They're probably more likely to pick a boring, non-offensive guy rather than go out on a limb to add charisma to the ticket.

Hopefully he will go for the geography and delegates, rather than picking the "least likely to screw up" candidate.

So many of the names being passed around belong to the most boring people on the planet.  Can you imagine being the guy next to Romney on the ticket...and you're the boring one?  

Say what you will about Palin...at least she made it interesting.

As you know, I'm a huge Condi fan, too.  But I don't think she will be the pick.  And why should she play 2nd fiddle anyway?  I'd rather see her at the top of the ticket one day.

Rubio has the benefit of big (swing state) delegates, geography, race and charisma.  

I don't know much about McDonnell other than the point you made about him making mincemeat out of Creigh Deeds... in what was supposed to be a close race.  

Not sure that 2 pasty white guys from the east coast are going to generate much enthusiasm throughout the country...but hell, who knows!  Perhaps the crappy economy will be enough to inspire voters to vote for the "we probably won't screw it up as bad as the other guys" ticket.   Wink

If they do they haven't a prayer of a chance of winning.

McCain never had a chance at winning the election.  Talk about boring?  McCain epitomizes boring.  Palin, hate her/like her/love her/don't care either way, brought some zest to a dead campaign.  And she did bring votes to the campaign.  My sister was going to vote for 0bama but turned when Palin joined the ticket.
