Sarah Palin must run in 2016
Consider this an endorsement
In 2008, Senator John McCain selected former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as her running mate, becoming the first woman to be nominated as the Republican candidate for Vice President. During that time they ripped her apart for not having any experience and claiming she said “I can see Russia from my house.” That was an outright lie! Democrats have constantly written articles blasting her and mocking her. 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. However, her reality shows was a self-inflicted wound. Republicans say she is not electable but political pundits expected McCain and Mitt Romney to claim the White House.
The last Republican was laughable Texas Governor George W. Bush. People discounted him because of his war mindset and his father’s beliefs. Now former Florida Jeb Bush is expected to get the same treatment. Sarah Palin is not afraid. Sarah Palin is not afraid to back down and will not apologize. Like a famous rule in NCIS, never apologize, it’s a sign of weakness. She takes on the old dogs. McCain and Romney treaded lightly while President Obama slammed them into the ground. If Hillary Clinton wind up with the 2016 Democratic nomination, no play nice Republican will defeat her. In 2012, Romney fought back against Obama in the first debate but backed down in the last two debates, in hopes of keeping the lead.
The mainstream media will not dare go after Hillary Clinton for any of her scandals. Both Bill and Hillary Clinton remain the most popular politicians in the country. The Benghazi investigation has not held Obama or Clinton even remotely accountable. She’s received a get out of jail free card. Palin does face the possibility of losing but a plan B candidate would result in an electoral slaughter, leading the Clintons back to the White House.
Americans may consider a Palin candidacy would be dead right out of the door. However the past shows differently. Americans who had never heard him speak disliked Romney. But when people actually saw him for the first time in the first debate, a strange thing happened: they liked him. Yep, he was nothing like what voters thought. His favorable numbers rose dramatically, and they were even above 50% by election day. He didn’t win, but a lot more people liked him after they actually saw him than when they expressed an opinion based on a caricature of him. The same could be true with Palin. If anything, the caricature of her is so borderline-silly that most people would be shocked to find out she could recite the alphabet. Governor Palin took a beating far worse than any other candidate in history.
In her 2008 Vice President acceptance speech, Palin fought back against Obama. She was highly favored by the Public until the left-wing media launched a character assassination did her numbers plummet. The media set the narrative was that she wasn’t qualified to be vice-president. However, during my lifetime in Alaska, she served as a governor, mayor, and state commissioner, totally dismantling the liberal’s argument.
Palin is already a known figurehead. We’ve seen her at her best and her worst. (And her “worst” is more what others have done to her rather than something she has done to herself.) She is a conservative with a strong honest streak. She reaches out to people of all walks of life and is an effective speaker. Media attackers have already investigated every fine detail of her life. One thing with Palin is sure: there is nothing left to be vetted except her ideas. Would Palin be a risky move? Well, how did the last two guys work out for us and who among the Republicans would be a better force to at least try to stomp her opponent the way they will stomp back? We all expect her not to run but look at who is confirmed as a candidate. How well do we really know Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Christie, Rubio and the other old dogs.
