I cannot believe what I am seeing. CNN's Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer is talking about what would have to happen for "Sarah the Baracuda" Palin to become president in 2012.
It's based on a New York Magazine article.
The scenario calls for NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg to run as an independent and funnel key states away from Obama, leaving Palin with all the red states, sending the vote to the House of Representatives (which it is presumed will be Republican controlled).
At the same time, the article cites Palin's approval rating in a recent poll as 22%. Hmmm.
CNN started downhill when it was taken over from Ted Turner by Time Warner who fired Turner and with the advent of Fox "News."
i can't imagine how she can run, since she did walk out of being governor of her own state.
The original article is in New York magazine.
Sounds like the author believes that both Palin (duh) and Bloomberg are gearing up for runs in 2012.
And the WH is running scared and now is pandering to Mr. Bloomberg.
Guess I shouldn't future trip this way. Still plenty of anxiety and angst leading up to November 2nd.
Right now watching live debate on FL governor candidates Rick Scott(R) and Alex Sink (D).
I could vote for Bloomberg, but the Dem would have to be a pedophile for me to vote for Palin.
I simply can't see Palin as president of the US. I don't think it could happen. Our country isn't full of that many non-thinkers.
She should be doing toothpaste commercials.
The only route Palin has to the white house is possibly through the vice presidency.
And that is hard to imagine.
Gotta be careful what we say here, Ralph. That's about the ONLY criticism I haven't heard leveled at Obama ...yet.
Don't give "them" any ammunition!!! Shhh!
No, seriously! Maybe I should close this thread to further comment before "they" show up. I think they're over talking about the NRA right now....
As i said before her kid not retarded, he just takes after his mom. No Wasilla hillbillies in the whitehouse!!!

This article outlines how a third party candidate (Bloomberg?) could hand the 2012 election to Palin, as Nader siphoned off liberals' votes from Gore in 2000.What really struck me about this article is how come we, the American people, are not hearing about Obama's very real accomplishments? Where...

This past election there was a lot of energy created in the choice by John McCain to have Sarah Palin as his running mate. What do you feel was the reason for this choice and how do you think she was qualified to be the Vice President. Could you please be factual with your replies to...

There are a "few" posts in the forums indicating the posters' firm beliefs that Sarah Palin's book is an effort to (A) make money, (B) settle scores, (C) suck in those of us foolish enough to believe she's a person of substance, (D) blow hot air, and/or a number of other negative...

These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America. We...
