Mitt Romney Raises Most Money For 2012 Run, Sarah Palin Lags Behind

July 21, 2010 by  

Mitt Romney Raises Most Money For 2012 Run, Sarah Palin Lags BehindEarlier this year former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won a series of straw polls for the most popular would-be GOP presidential candidate in 2012, and he seems to continue to build momentum with successful fundraising efforts.

During the second quarter of 2010, Romney raised $1.8 million, well ahead of other contenders for the ticket, for a total of $3.4 million since the beginning of the year, according to media reports.

By contrast, his closest rival Tim Pawlenty, the governor of Minnesota, managed just over $720,000 in the most recent quarter, and $1.3 million in 2010 thus far, Minneapolis City Pages reported.

However, the real question on many commentators’ minds seems to be the fundraising performance of Sarah Palin, whose favorability ratings among likely GOP voters are the highest for all contenders at 76 percent, according to a new Gallup poll.

Even the controversial Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann raised more—$1.7 million to Palin’s $865,000 in the second quarter—prompting National Post contributor Tim Mak to ask “why isn’t Palin, a national figure with more media coverage than Bachmann, at least keeping pace?”ADNFCR-1961-ID-19897280-ADNFCR

    When do we finally learn that money has nothing to do with leadership? If it was that simple (money raised = quality leadership), life would make sense and political hacks would be working as dog catchers or for non-profits.
    Because MONEY is so important to political parties, responsible citizens need to realize that the ‘good
    old days’ [pre-1850] were better than the three-ring circuses that pass for politics today. Back then, candidates had to tour the countryside without the benefits of mass media, and they had to wow voters with what they said IN PERSON.
    When you consider what has happened to America since the advent of mass media, ‘touring’ via radio would net better candidates. TV is too much Hollywood hype and science fiction to let voters know what they need to know to sort hacks from quality candidates.
    Because parties give us what THEY want, we probably couldn’t do any worse if we voted for Peter Pan or Mary Poppins. At least they’re household names, and they’ve got established reputations – and, they’re not community organizers or career politicians who should have been imprisoned years ago.

    • Claire

      s c — Money talks.

      • Claire

        And it seems that whomever has the most money wins.

    • Holly Marcyoniak

      I’M IN PERFECT AGREEMENT, WHY IN HELL ARE ELECTIONS SO TIED TO HORRENDOUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY– EVERYONE CLAIMS TO BE SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE DEBT– IF THEY WERE AT ALL CONCERNED–WOULD THEY KEEP THROWING AWAY MONEY, ESPECIALLY IN SUCH HUGE AMOUNTS !!!!

  • Rick Ence

    Mitt Romney is a legitimate canidate for the Presidency. He is what the country needs right now. He has outlined his position in great detail in his book, “No Apology”, you dont have to listen to the hype, read the book. He is a Brilliant business man with a desire to see America return to the position of leadership that it should be in. America’s destiny is to lead the world. We need to pick leaders who believe in our destiny.

    • Bruce

      Rick, I will not argue with you that Mitt is good at business, but my friend he is a Preogressive too thus he is a RINO. Do you really think that more of the same will be of any real value? Think the new boss looks just like to old boss, its time to break this cycle we need fresh blood and we need to rid the US of the FED, the Federal bank, the DOJ, and all Progressives or we will be doing this same dance for years to come.

      • Jane

        Bruce, what is your evidence that Romney is a progressive/RINO? Simply saying it does not make it true. His record as governor is 100% conservative.

        • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

          Romneycare is one proof. Government run health care is a bad idea…Period.

        • Bruce

          Jane,
          Look at his history, I don’t mean a quick glance, dig really deep on him and you will find enough to shock your pants off.

      • Holly Marcyoniak

        NO MORE PROGRESSIVES—–PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • kate8

        Romney is just another puppet for the global corporatist elite.

        Also, as in anything else, follow the money. The fact that he raises the most money shows that the corporatist support him.

        You can be sure that the PTB will see to it that their picks come out in front.

    • slickporsche

      He is another McCain and will switch at a moments notice. He cannot be trusted, like most politicians.

      • J.M.R.

        I WONT VOTE FOR ROMNEY AS HE HAD STATE GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE AND NOW LOOK AT MASS. AND THEIR MONEY PROBLEMS

        • Jane

          JMR, MassCare is only 1% of the Massachusetts state budget.

          • J.M.R.

            IF THATS THE CASE WHY ARE THEY SAYS THIER HAVING MONEY PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF THE HEALTH CARE EXPENCES

          • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

            Please get your fact straight the budget is 1%, the expense is much more. That is why it is broke.

      • Harold Olsen

        I won’t go so far as to call Romney another McCain but he is definitely not a true conservative and for that reason he won’t get my vote. His pre-Obama version of Obamacare proves that.

    • http://ajb221@cox.net AJB OKIE

      look at his health care he has broke the state no bussiness at all just fill his pockets with more of our money…..

      • Jane

        Romney filled his pockets with your money!? When? LOL

        Did you know that Romney never took any payment or salary from the Olympics, or as Governor?

    • Always right

      Mitt is another perpetual loser. He is exactly what the country DOESN’T need right now; another wanna-be whore in a suit dancing to the tune of the NWO/trilateralist puppetmasters.

      He’s shown us 2 times he’s not electable because he’s a wishy-washy mealy-mouth “middle of the roader” who’s willing to compromise with the de muck rats. He needs to just go away

  • Don Jones ww2 vet

    Sorry, but he is just anouther politicen
    we must have new blood with fresh ideas and
    a solid feel for our Constitution

    • Jane

      They’re all politicians. Who do you suggest?

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Nancy Works

    We read Rommey’s book. He is articulate and direct in his comments. He spells out all of the projects and intentions of the radical left and is not afraid to present it in plain words. He has the Courage, the Strength and the Leadership America needs to clean up the morass in our National government. The radical left sees Romney as a valid threat and they are already starting to smear him!!!!

    • Holly Marcyoniak

      I BEKIEVE MIKE HUCKABEE WOULD DO A MUCH BETTER JOB AS PRESIDENT !!!!

      • JohnC

        Huckabee, now there’s a tax and spender, just ask the people of Arkansa.
        Romney is the only person with any kind of business background.
        Remember Business and corporations employee people who pay the taxes, with out them we would be like Greece.

      • http://www.nosmog.com ROBERT

        I WON’T BET ON HUCKABEE MYSELF, WHEN AFTER ELECTION WAS OVER IN NOV.4, 2008, HUCKABEE MOVED INTO NEW YORK AND FORM NEW SHOWS “HUCKABEE”, WHY NEW YORK / . PLENTY OF OBAMA’S CRONIES UP THERE. MAYBE HUCKABEE WILL BECOMING LIBERAL REPUBLICAN !. NO WAY,WE NEVER WANT TO SEE ANY NEW LIBERALS EVER AGAIN !. MAYBE HE LIKE TO FOLLOWING LIKE BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON FOOT STEPS AND GET AWAY FROM ARKANSAS COURTS ?. COULD BE !. WHO KNOWS !

      • scotty

        I would vote for Obama before I ever put a troll like Huckabee in office. He is a fool an absolute fool. Oh my gosh how could anyone even think of him as a president. Huckabee would sink our country. I would beat the streets for Obama if Huckabee became the Nominee. I would empty my savings and give it to Obama. Ewww I need to throw up now. Thanks alot. Huckabee?????? are you seriuse????

    • Harold Olsen

      Don’t go by what the left says. I read something the other day that the one presidential candidate that they most fear is Jeb Bush. I get the feeling that they hope Jeb Bush will be the Republican candidate so they can use his brother’s record against him and get an easy win in 2012. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve had enough of the Bushes.

  • Dale

    Mitt Romney was the Gov. of my State of Massachusetts. He implemented an insurance health care scheme wherein which if you didn’t purchase a health insurance policy you would be fined by the state. Hmmm! Not the kind of “Conservative” I know about and want. The question is, will he continue with the Obama Care or implement a new health insurance policy as president? Or will he have the balls to stand up to Democraps and repeal everything the illegal alien Obama has passes? I would rather prefer a real “Conservative” like Fred Thompson over Romney.

    • possum

      I totally agree.

      • Harold Olsen

        Fred Thompson won’t run again. He’s too smart for that. I voted for him in the primary in 2008. It’s a shame. I consider him the last true statesman to have served in either house of Congress. To clarify what I mean: the difference between a politician and a statesman is a politician wants whatever he can get that best for himself; a statesman wants whatever he can get that is best for the country. These days, all we have are a bunch of politicians.

    • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

      Would Romney stand up? Answer, NO!

  • Da Cryptkeeper

    RomneyCare was a small-scale precursor of what ObamaCare is on a national scale. Are we supposed to overlook this, or sweep it under the rug, just because he’s a Republican? Hell, he provided Obama the blueprints for the massive overhaul of our system that people are so upset about now!

  • FlaJim

    Not only did Romney preside over implemention of the state health plan, he sided with homosexuals, granting them special rights. This is a man who will do and say whatever is required to achieve election. No principles.

    He’s a RINO.

    • Jane

      What special rights? Romney fought against gay marriage harder than any other elected official. He has never been for special rights, only for equality and respect for gay people.

      • FlaJim

        There should never be equality or respect for mentally aberrant people. No, I don’t hate them. They need treatment and counseling.

        • Jane

          It’s too bad you don’t believe in the principles that are the foundation of your country.

          • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

            It would seem that perhaps you should share some of these “Principles”.

          • Always right

            Jane

            at the “foundation of our country” the homos would have been tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail or locked up to keep them away from the same people and children. That’s why they were virtually non-existent and kept their mental illnesses &/or demonic possession to themselves. It should still be that way. You don’t want “equality” as you already have that. Any one of you women can marry any man you want just like the rest of the women out there. That’s REAL equality. When we start making special laws to take you past that, is is not longer “equal”.

        • kate8

          Equality is one thing. But certainly no one should be given special consideration or preference because they are deviant.

          • eddie47d

            Allot of heterosexuals are deviates too but have equal rights so stop pigeon holing classes of people.

          • kate8

            HELLO! Did I not say that NO one should get special treatment just because they are deviant? Did I specify the types of deviance?

            EQUAL treatment, okay. Preferencial treatment, absolutely not.

  • Jane

    RomneyCare – Constitutional, 72 pages
    ObamaCare – UnConstitutional, over 2000 pages

    Romney seems to be the man for these times. He is not a RINO, but a true conservative who is more qualified and prepared to be POTUS, than anyone on the stage. I’ll take Daniels as a close second. But please, no Palin.

    • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

      Romneycare/Obamacare both failures. He is a RINO and a progressive. We need a small government Constitutionalist.

  • Norm

    Mitt Romney wants to be president. And at this point, he’s stuck with the Republican party as the vehicle. And that means he’s going to have to run against ObamaCare. That’s awkward, though, because Romney presided over the creation of Massachusetts’ health care overhaul, which served as the model for ObamaCare. This is going to be fun watch.
    Mitt Romney is now slamming the TARP bill that he once favored. It’s striking to see the number of conservatives who’ve decided that an initiative proposed by George W. Bush and Hank Paulson and endorsed by the GOP congressional leadership was and is secretly some socialist plot.
    http://online.logcabin.org/mitt-romneys-flip-flops.html

    • Jane

      I haven’t heard Romney slam TARP. The bill was necessary to keep the financial system from complete collapse. I have heard him say that it was administered wrong, which of course it was.

      • Holly Marcyoniak

        JANE, DID YOU EVER THINK THAT WHAT YOU ARE TOLD IS NOTHING BUT LIES ????

        • eddie47d

          Holly, Did you ever think that what you are told is nothing but lies???

      • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

        Administering a bad idea is like pushing a rope uphill. It sounds like he might be saying that he was for it before he was against it.

    • Harold Olsen

      Perhaps it was a socialist plot. To quote Charles Krauthammer on Fox’s “Special Report” in November of 2008: “George Bush is the most socialist president in the history of this country.” However, Obama has long since beaten Bush’s record.

  • Norm

    It seems to me that Obama has a great probability of winning in 2012, especially if the economy shows improvement. The Republicans really need to get their s—t together. So far, the candidate slate is pathetic.

    • kate8

      This administration will keep telling us the economy is improving, that jobs are being created, even as the nation continues to crumble all around us.

      They are liars. But for some reason, there are those who swallow whatever they say just because they say it.

    • Harold Olsen

      Pathetic: A great description of politicians in both parties.

  • FlaJim

    The economy will no more improve under the boy in the White House than it did under FDR. We have good alternatives to this RINO such as Jindal, Pawlenty, and De Mint.

    • Jane

      I like all three, but none of them are as prepared or as qualified to be president as Romney is.

      • Harold Olsen

        Maybe not. But, they are more qualified than the whining crybaby who currently occupies the White House. But that’s not saying much. The chair I’m sitting in could do a better job.

    • Jane

      FlaJim, are you aware that DeMint supported Romney in ’07 and is still a great fan of Romney? It’s been said that he may run simply to keep Huckabee out.

      • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

        Jane are you aware that Obama supported Bill Clinton before he ran against Hillary Clinton. So what if DeMint supported Romney 3 years ago in ’07. It would probably be more interesting to know who Romney was running against to gain some insight into that support.

    • Norm

      A FEW OBSERVATIONS:

      In fiscal year 2008, his last hurrah as a U.S. congressman representing Louisiana before taking over the governor’s mansion, Jindal scored big in the pork contest. He, sometimes in concert with other lawmakers, ended up bringing home $97,913,200 in bacon. That put him at the number 14 spot in “Taxpayers for Common Sense’s” annual tally of the most successful appropriators in the House.

      COLUMBIA, S.C. — Sen. Jim DeMint has endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2008 presidential race, according to a letter the South Carolina senator is sending to state Republicans.

      Pawlenty Smears Stimulus While His Top Economic Adviser Tours Minnesota Touting Its Success. Pawlenty told Bloomberg’s Al Hunt that most of the stimulus money was “misdirected” and “largely wasted” on projects that won’t create jobs. But weeks before Pawlenty’s comments, his own economic development director went on a 10 city road show titled “Advancing Economic Prosperity” touting the benefits of the stimulus. “Communities and job-seekers throughout Minnesota are seeing tangible results from this funding,” said Dan McElroy, Pawlenty’s “point man on jobs and economic development.”

      • eddie47d

        Jindal is a Rino always with his hand out,and Pawlenty is a hypocrite. Don’t know DeMint well enough,Huckabee would make a good neighbor and friend and seems lovable but not so sure about Presidency. I wouldn’t vote for Romney but he does have several good ideas and strong on business.

          Judge a man by his accomplishments, his family, honesty in business dealings,believes in America’s exceptionalism, not a carrer politician, works well behind the scenes dosen’t need recognition for accomplishments, in plain words Mitt Romney has courage, strength, leadership and a business background. Plays by the rules (Our Rule of Law) Constitution. Misinformation is out there about Mass healthcare, some might be misinformed. Get the facts & let the facts speak for itself. What a wonderful opprotunity for USA to have a USA Naturalborn Citizen as President of USA. A President Romney would keep USA safe with National Securiity, Military would have USA Com-in Chief!

    Romney…No, I don’t think so. Lets recap Romneycare/Obamacare…one word Failure! Perhaps the worst thing about it is that Romney defends his failure as much as Obama does his. Romney is a big government, big spender.

    Palin…No, I don’t think so. She has a lot of good ideas and is on the right track, but she is simply not any more qualified for the position than Obama.

    Gingrich…No, I don’t think so. We have far too many free spenders in Washington already.

    Ron Paul…maybe. Liberterian on a Federal level may actually help restore State rights to the point that States can actually legislate according to their individuals needs and desires without Federal intervention.

    • UpChuck.Liberals

      Why? Because she hasn’t gone to one of the Socialist cookie cutter schools? Or, and this is much more likely, she’s got more balls than you do and that’s threatens your manhood. I doubt seriously that she’d do one lick worse than Barry, after all, she does have experience. Heck, she still has more than Barry even with him playing the POTUS.

      • Harold Olsen

        I have only one thing against Palin: She is supporting McCain in his bid for re-election. That makes me question whether or not she is a true conservative. I find it hard to believe a true conservative could support a RINO like him who only acts like a conservative when he is up for re-election. I especially can’t understand why she supports him after the way he and his campaign treated her when she was his running mate. The way McCain campaigned in 2008 makes me believe that not only is a a liberal pretending to be a conservative but that he is in reality a closet Democrat.

        • Norm

          Harold Olsen
          Palin is not a necon, she is an idiot who has not got enough sense to stand for anything.
          One thing she does well is make lots of money. For that I give her credit.

        • Always right

          Sarah started out a real rouge but 1/2 way through the campaign the body snatchers got hold of her and replaced her with a creature that started talking about “a path to citizenship” (amnesty) and “comprehesive immigration reform” (amnesty) for criminal invaders.
          After that, I’d not urinate on her if she was on fire. She’s no longer presidential material.

          • Marcus Aurelus

      What planet are you guys on? This is not a popularity contest we are talking about … we are talking about a President who will speak for the people and guide us with wisdom and will select wise and experienced associates … not create a shadow government of Czars. I am ready for someone who is willing to be an extention of the people and bring us back to our roots. Cut out the pork … cut out excess government jobs and allow enterprise to grow … Jobs … Independance and Freedom. No speculation please on people who are not even running for President. Someone will be ready for a “time such as this” and we need to embrace him/her and pull together to get us out of the corruption and defecit. Thank you very much.

  • kage

    There is much work to do. This next election and the one in 2012 are perhaps the most important and critical in our history.
    The presidency is most important because he/she selects nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court. This court has had more to do with our turn away from the Constitution and Bill of Rights than Congress or the executive branch.
    For the people and states to reclaim the powers given by our Founding Documents we must have U.S. Justices who are willing to overturn 220 yrs. of unconstitutional precedents. We need a President and Congress who are committed to a United States (federal) government (all 3 branches) explicitly restricted in it’s power by our Bill of Rights. This candidate needs to be a courageous, highly intellegent, highly moral, completely dedicated patriot. A person with absolutely no personal political ambition.
    Is there a candidate for President of the USA who has the courage of Audie Murphy, the morality and honesty of George Washington, the intellect of Thomas Jefferson and the tenacity and oratory skills of Patrick Henry ? I believe there is ! When we find this person or they find us we will have a chance to stop the current madness and take our country back. Perhaps a person with a military background might afford all the attributes required.
    I don’t claim to know this person’s identity at this time but if we search this great country with the correct criteria I am absolutely positive we will find that person. Next, we will need to support, protect and elect.
    God Bless our Founding Fathers !

  • chuck b

    at present we have a democratic party in full power attempting to bring this country into a communist state and doing a good job of it, they control the media, education system and the executive branch. the country is in an absolute freefall to communism. we still have whats left of the republican party, mainly rinos, and we would be so stupid as nominate a empty suit rino like romney??huckabee and even tho i like newt he has turned into a rino. sarah palin is the only one out there that has the courage and the determination to fight the commies and bring our republic back to its stature. i have always fought against a woman ruling the country, however, i don’t see any one out there with better credentials. why do you think the comminist media constantly critize’s her, they fear her thats why.
    she may not have the military experience, but, i’ll bet she knows what end the bullet comes out of the rifle, has anyone asked romney??

          The reason why Democrats, and many Republicans, hate Sarah Palin is because she is a conservative woman but, most of all, she is a truly independent woman, and that scares them. She is what the so-called feminist movement is all about. But, feminists hate her as well, because they can’t control her. The feminist organizations tell their members what they can say and how they can act. Feminists are not independent women, though they claim to be. They can’t control Palin so they don’t like her and they vilify her, yet, they deify people like Hillary Clinton who only got where she is because of her husband. If not for him she’d be back in Arkansas baking cookies or something, whereas, Palin got where she is on her own merit without the help of any man. For that reason alone I admire her and would be willing to vote for her. She is intelligent as well, though people call her stupid because, among other things, she made some notes on her hand as reminders of what she wanted to say in her speech, which she gave off the cuff. Obama, on the other hand, is so stupid that he has to have his speeches written out and put on a teleprompter so he can read them and if the teleprompter breaks down, he’s screwed. He can’t continue with his speech because he has no idea what he had planned to say. And, he is unable to pronounce the words properly even though he is reading them.

            YES Sarah … moral compass and focused on doing the right thing … determined even if the habit of handwriting helps make it happen. I think we all agree that leaders rise to the occasion. Sarah has not said she is a candidate but it looks to me like she is being set apart for a high calling … as on a basketball team … there is a natural order and a leader is not appointed as much as that automatically rise to authority. Just think about what happens when a crisis happens in your family … isn’t there a natural leader who takes charge to get things done? That’s Sarah … read her book for more details.

      Oh, boy, Chuckie! You are smoking something wacky! Commies? Hahaha… last I checked, corporations run the government, not the other way ’round. How do we have an “absolute freefall to communism” when we have the biggest concentration of wealth in the hands of the rich IN HISTORY! Oh, so let’s let half-term, half-wit Sarah Palin run this country? She QUIT as governor rather than actually accomplish anything! The “commies” don’t “critize” her, they are LAUGHING AT HER. AND US!

      I do agree that Newtie and Mittie are a bunch of phonies. If Rand Paul and Sharron Angle were not so damned kooky and far out of the mainstream, they would be much better candidates.

    • Harold Olsen

      Until I read the last line of your post I though you were describing Obama. I may not be a fan of Romney and won’t vote for him if he is the Republican candidate, but no one can be as bad as Obama. Compared to Obama, even Jimmy Carter was good president, and you don’t know how much it turns my stomach to say that. Yecch!!

  • Jim H.

    I read posts that say the Republicans need a fresh new face. Then I read articles about Mitt and Newt and all I see is more of the samo-lamo. They need to find a conservative who stands FOR the constitution and spring him or her on us at the last minute so the DNC smear machine doesn’t have time to go to work on them. Don’t worry that we won’t know anything about them because it really didn’t seem to matter in 08. We should find someone with a common name, Jim, Mike, Sue, not a Newt, or Mitt or Barrak.

    I want SOMEONE, ANYONE who will CUT spending!!! Furthremore, I dont think the federal government has ANY business telling me what I should eat, or setting standards of ANY kind. Example – who the hell are they to say what kind of light bulbs I should use in my home!! That is my choice not theirs – or some F$#%ing government nit-wit.

    Dump the “Education” Department – education has never been so poorly represented until this “Department” showed up!

    The Government’s role is to protect the counutry – start with the borders, negotiate trade deals and leave the populace alone! We do not need them “protecting us from ourselves or telling us how THEY think we should live.

    Get Government OUT of our lives. Now that is a goal I can support

    I would love to see Sarah Palin become a Senator from Alaska. I would love to see a Conservative President elected over Obama. A full investigation of the Obama administration is in order covering the many issues which Obama has cover up, and actual legal actions taken against any dishonest and illegal activities and actions performed during that administration. Those Democrates forced to retire because of the voters, if implicated and convicted, should loos all Federal Retirement Benefits as part of any punishment. I have never been so disgusted by any administration, as I have been by this one. It is not merely an matter of disagreement, It is a matter of the dishonesty and lack of integrity of this administration. An anti-American White House and Senatorial and Congressional leaders is appalling! They have betrayed their sacred oaths and the citizens of this Nation. The Country has been severly damaged by this administration and those who have gone along with it. No excuse is possible for such a lack of integrity.

  • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

    Let’s stand back at look at this from a different view point.

    Obama vs. Romney – Romney
    Obama vs. Huckabee – Huckabee
    Obama vs. Palin – Palin
    Obama vs. Gingrich – Gingrich
    Obama vs. Paul – Paul
    Obama vs. Complete Unknown – Complete Unknown

    The one thing that Obama needs to move out of the White House.
    The other thing that we know is that we have an opportunity to get a true conservative, constitiutionalist to move into it.

    Romney was Democrat before he was Republican. Pro-Choice before he was Pro-Life. Not only support governement controlled health care but defends it. Lots of politics involved with this one. Again, I don’t think so.

    Huckabee was someone that I supported at one time, but the more he has spoke the more political he has become. I don’t think this is the answer.

    Palin is someone that given time to set the stage can deliver a good message, but it seems at times that she is struggling to invoke a catch phrase for the public while trying to figure out a platform to stand on to back it up with. No doubt, I personally am grateful the work that she is doing to restore some order to the country, but there have been some political moves and governmentatl control of businesses that have been questionable.

    Gingrich had an opportunity during the Bush administration to cut spending at the Federal level and failed. Once opportunities like this are wasted, it seems that unless there is a complete confession of the failure that they have disqualified themselves from consideration.

    Ron Paul is the only 100% Constitutionalist on the scene at the moment. Look at his record. He has never voted for a single piece of legislation that was not supported by the Constituional authority given to the Federal Government. He could be instrumental in getting the Federal Government out of the way of the States and individuals.

    Unknown is just that and given the bias of media coverage we might not have enough time and be able to uncover enough of someones true background to have much confidence in them.

  • Patrick

    First of all I didn’t read or pay much attention to this article. I only want to comment about Sarah Palin running for office again. I think the world of this woman but feel that she has shot herself in the foot with her use of the “soccer mom”, “Oh shucks”, “down home” image. As a result, I feel that she is not viewed as a woman of strength by those not closely affilliated with the conservative agenda. Sure, she has the correct grasp and understanding of the real issues facing America today but she will never, in my opinion, be able to pull off the image of a strong, forceful leader that you need from a Presidential candidate. She needs to change her image or simply play a strong supporting role in the next election. The people we need to convince that she is up to the challenges of the job and vote for her, just aren’t going to be swayed by her current image. There is just too much media hype against her. I would vote for her again but many others will not. Just my two cents.

    • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

      I wish it were different myself, but I have to agree with you. She has played that “down home” image to such an extent that she seems a little bit out of touch on global issues. It may or may not be true, but it is the image that has been created.

  • chuck b

    sarh palin is laying low to keep the media off her back, they know who will kill any democrat they back and that’s palin. they will do anything at this point to kill any chance of her running. the liberals who post here try to insult her so people will be embarrassed to mention her. they know and fear who is going to be the next president in 2012.
    Whats ron paul or any of the so called mainstream. newt, romney or huckabee got going for them? not much except the same old same old.

    • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

      chuck b,

      I believe you can leave Ron Paul off that list and might actually be able to insert Palin. She has been very supportive of some of the same old same old politics.

      If Ron Paul were in office now.

      Healthcare Reform – Vetoed
      Finance Reform – Vetoed
      The Fed – Audited
      Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac – Defunct
      Pending Cap & Trade – Vetoed.
      Arizona Imigration Law – Supported both Politically and with substantanial funding and personal.
      Imigration Reform – Secure border and deportatition.

    Mitt Romeny will be the Next president. The only real question is will Rudy or Joe Liberman be the Vice. i’m good with either. I would like to see Liberman though. I really believehe as some strong conservative beliefs. He seems more fair on social issues than liberal and their is a difference.

  • BlogMagog

    Do you know his history in business? Of course not, the media would never tell you that, especially in contrast to the community organizer they wanted in office. Now more than ever, we need somebody to focus on the spending and the waste, something he built his career on, and then make the needed changes to get us in better economic shape.
