    The 2010 elections proved a few things, actually old adages..."voters ALWAYS vote THEIR wallet." Ideology only goes so far. In 2008 the GOP fucked-up and deserved to lose, they did, and look to whom...a first term senator.

    If the economy does not improve by election day 2012, does anyone believe that Palin could not win?

    Is "drill baby drill" any worse than "energy costs necessarily need to skyrocket"?

    Lets do a poll on 2012....

    Sure she could, as a group Americans are pretty stupid.

    Palin is viewed unfavorably by most Americans, and is too well known now to be able to do much to improve that number.

    Who ever heard of anyone winning the presidency with a high unfavorability number? Anyone?

    Yes, they are, they put a Muslim Marxist in the WH who had never even run a lemonade stand. And his ineptitude becomes more apparent every day. Sarkozy, the President of France, told the media that Odumbo might be insane.

    Nope, she couldn't. What the Rep party needs to do is nominate a relatively unknown young Senator and promise change.

    I care about what the President of France thinks about Obama about as much as I care what the President of Mexico thinks of our immigration laws. Which is to say none at all.

    Someone said that being president is all about "character". I'm not a Palin fan, but if she is the GOP choice and the dems don't get the economy improved by 2012, Palin would probably get elected. I look at Clinton's presidency and we heard the same GOP whining about the 2% tax increase, and that turned out to be bullshit. If the GOP congress cuts spending, and Obama keeps the tax increase and the Debt starts to trend down and the economy improves, who knows...Bubba Clinton had two terms....
    Lets hope that the mid-term election re-focuses the Obama admin and they start making common-sense policy instead of politically correct bullshit.
