Should Sarah Palin Run in 2016?
I am very excited about conservatives like Palin running in 2016.
Check it out:
Democrats claim they would love for Sarah Palin to be the Republican nominee in 2016. They constantly write articles of her “irrelevancy,” and mock her and write story, after story, after story about her. Because that’s what you do with irrelevant people. Many Republicans are even wary of what her nomination would bring, noting that the media and entertainment industry assault on her has currently destroyed her public image. (Admittedly, the multiple family reality shows might be a self-inflicted wound.) And while they might say she is not electable, both John McCain and Mitt Romney were supposed to be very, very electable. The last Republican elected President was George W. Bush. He was pegged as an idiot. They laughed at his accent. The media set up “gotcha questions” to embarrass him. He was a silly born-again Christian and a right-wing extremist and a war monger. Sound like the media description of someone else? Oh, and he won.
Sarah Palin is Unafraid
If there is one thing about Palin, it is that she is not afraid to go after her opponents. She is tenacious. She would not back down. She would not apologize. She would not have conservatives hopping mad in her refusal to go on offense. McCain and Romney played nice while candidate Obama pounded them into the ground.
Should Hillary Clinton wind up the 2016 Democratic nominee, no nicey-nice candidate will defeat her. One could not have asked for a more reasonable, competent, and qualified nominee than Mitt Romney was in 2012, and it was mostly pointless. The only time Romney surged into the polls was when he methodically dismantled him in the first debate and went on the offensive. He then went on to play it safe in the final two debates – attempting to protect a lead – and the rest was history. Nice guys finish last, unfortunately.
