What are your opinions about Sarah Palin for president in 2012?
Sarah Palin has announced the possibility of her candidacy in the 2012 presidential elections. Should she run? Would you support her? What affects would Palin have on America? The world?
I don't think she can win anyway, but it astounds me that so many conservatives are so in love with her. She's not a real conservative if you actually look past the phony rhetoric and take a look at her actual track-record as a govenor.
Sarah Palin may well run for President of the United States of America but I doubt that she will win. Obama has received a great deal of criticism for the financial crisis but Obama did not cause this crisis. If anyone caused the huge budget deficit in America is was a member of Sarah Palin's own party George W. Bush by overspending on military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. I would not support Sarah Palin. I believe her constant blaming of Obama and the democrats is wrong and Sarah Palin being President would do little to help America because our crisis is global and little to do with the office of President of the United States of America. Therefore her ability make a huge difference to finances in America would be limited too and she would probably find that she isn't able to make any more difference to the financial turmoil than President Obama.
Finally let us not forget that for many years the whitehouse and the office of President of the United States of America was out of reach for a black or non white America. I can not help but feel that a great deal of the criticism that is being pointed at President Obama is racial in motivation and is really attached to America's far right who are racist beyond humane imagination. A very large section of those who are supporting Sarah Palin are doing so not because Sarah Palin is in any way a great or talented politician. Instead I feel that middle class white America is throwing its support behind Sarah Palin for racial reasons. In simple terms a black America in the office of President of the United States of America is too much for some white Americans to bear and this is the real reason there has been a surge in Miss white American Sarah Palins support. America's racial problems have not gone away and Sarah Palin has emerged the hero of those who dislike Obama for racist reasons. This matter is complexed and bound to cause anger and offence but America has a long way to go before it really deals with is racially motivated far right.
Very well put -- both of you. You all make very valid and well-thought positions.
Who, never heard of her? What country in America are you talking about, and is that North or South America?
When the heat got turned up as Govenor of Alaska, she bailed. If the USA votes for her to become president she will be one of the worst presidents in history.
I knew when we voted Obama in to office that he wasn't going to be able to fix everything, but I think if you look at the big picture he really has done a lot for our country. This is after only 3 years as president, if we vote him in to serve his 2nd term as president, we will see him put the steps he has in place finally come to life.
George W. Bush, ran our country like it was a high pay out gambling table. He just through us out their like a set of dice, and hoped we landed on the number he needed.
Our deficit has been on our way since BUSH SR. was in office and signed the NAFTA. NAFTA is a treaty signed by the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America. The agreement came into force on January 1, 1994. It superseded the Canada – United States Free Trade Agreement between the U.S. and Canada.
Every body knows now what happened since that was signed.... ALMOST all of our major Employers have moved to countries that have cheaper labor... in Mexico.
Does that seem like a party that cares about their citizens? I don't think so... Sarah Palin.... will in NO way get my vote!
I think Sarah Palin is intelligent she thinks fast on her feet and what comes out of her mouth is smart and the truth. The truth is something we Americans are not used to. I have a relative in Alaska that wrote to me all the great things she did for that state and she still has a many supporters there who did not want her to resign as governor. There were many lies told about her and ridiculous law suites that she had to spend money to win.
After the liberal media destroyed her reputation she returned to governor and the state congress had lost respect for her because of the media and she could see that she could not be as effective. Until people really get to know who she is and not through the media, they will not know why she was asked in the first place to run as Vice-President. The invitation was an honor based on her accomplishments as governor and her reputation.
She is a person of the people and stands for what is right and fair. She runs on the republican party ticket because she strongly believes in capitalism and the Constitution but she is her own person and not owned by anyone, not the unions, not business, no big money obligations.
Do you remember the media making fun of her for saying“I can see Russia from my house”. Well guess what, she never said that, Tina Fey did on TV. What the Governor referred to is the fact that parts of Russia are so close to Alaska that the Native Americans can drive snow machines or take dog teams to Russian islands to visit relatives that live there. Just Google "Little Diomede Island" and it will tell you. And what about the spys that moved in next door to her to watch her and her family. They had to put up fences and hire security. The liberal night time hosts and Saturday Night Live would not stop making fun of her. They could not stand the fact a woman might become Vice President. It was all about the good old boy club. But she just kept going, holding her head high and not letting them run her out of town.
I am tired of people talking about someone they know nothing about. If you want to know Sarah Palin, watch the movie documentary "Undefeated". It is fact based on her record not media lies-it is the truth!
Not interested in any rebuttals that have not seen the movie documentary because you have already been brain washed by the media lies.
I would like noting more than Sarah Palin to be my President.

Why are people asking whether or not Sarah Palin will run for president in 2012?She couldn't even debate Biden (Obama would have eaten her alive), and there were several questions she COULD NOT answer. Plus, she didn't even finish out her term as "governor." Her popularity may have...
