President Sarah Palin? ‘I Believe’ I Can Defeat Obama
November 17, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—Despite having very high negatives, low intelligence, and a divisive vindictive nature, the former half term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin thinks she will not only secure the Republican nomination for President in 2012, but that she will defeat President Obama. When asked by ABC’s Barbara Walters if she could beat President Obama, Palin responded, “I believe so.” A CNN poll taken after the mid-term elections, found that Palin would lose a presidential match up with Obama 52 percent to 44 percent. The White House certainly must be pleased with the news of Palin’s expected presidential bid.
Palin made her remarks during an interview with Walters to air in December.
“I’m looking at the lay of the land now, and … trying to figure that out, if it’s a good thing for the country, for the discourse, for my family, if it’s a good thing,” Palin said in an interview scheduled to air in full Dec. 9 on ABC as part of Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People” of 2010.
“Asked Walters: “If you ran for president, could you beat Barack Obama?”
“I believe so,” Palin said.
There you have it.
All indications point to Palin running. Her new reality TV show is effectively serving as an 8-week campaign commercial. And with frequent appearances on the Republican propaganda outlet Fox News as a paid contributor and speaking engagements, she’s not only constantly in the public eye, but raking in the dough as well.
She is also poised to release a new ghost-written book and travel on a book tour through “real” America.
And in a lengthy profile in New York Times Magazine, Palin, when asked if she was considering a run, responded “I am.” “I’m engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here,” she added.
In September, Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that she “would offer [herself] up in the name of service to the public” if “nobody else wanted to step up.”
Well, it appears Palin is offering herself up to America. You betcha’ And God helps us all.
