Palin’s got it right

Also, I highly recommend you listen to her remarks on Judge Napolitano’s Show. She discusses the complex issue of whether the US should support dictators who are our allies.

I think she did a great job. Who says she isn’t presidential or electable or intelligent? I beg to differ.

And she was speaking extemporaneously. No teleprompter and no notes.

    Potential 2012 Head-to-Head Matchups

    The poll asked about several hypothetical head-to-head matchups, and President Obama bests each Republican tested.

    The list of potential Republican presidential candidates now ranges from former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney to real estate developer and television personality Donald Trump.

    Who among them do voters think would make a good president?

    Mike Huckabee (55 percent) and Romney (54 percent) alone receive a thumbs-up from at least half of Republican voters. They also garner the most support among voters overall (34 percent and 33 percent respectively).

    About four in 10 Republicans think former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (43 percent), former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (40 percent) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (39 percent) would make good presidents — however, less than one in four voters overall thinks so.

    Trump for President?

    Donald Trump says he’s thinking about a presidential run, tired of what he sees going on in the country, particularly with the WikiLeaks situation.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he’s not running, yet 29 percent of Republicans say he would be a good president. That trumps Trump at 23 percent.

    Romney comes closest to Obama, trailing by 7 points (48-41 percent). Last fall Romney was just 1-point back (41-40 percent, September 2010). A year ago, Obama lead Romney by 12 points (47-35 percent).

    The president has an 8-point advantage over Huckabee (49-41 percent), up from a 3-point edge in September (43-40 percent).

    Obama has even wider advantages over Palin (56-35 percent), Gingrich (55-35 percent), and Jeb Bush (54-34 percent).

    Even as White House staffers depart to work on the 2012 campaign, 53 percent of voters think Obama is still focused on his job as president, rather than turning his attention to his re-election (33 percent).

    The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 911 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from Feb. 7 to Feb. 9. For the total sample, it has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    Mike Huckabee is the host of “Huckabee” on Fox News Channel, and Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum are Fox News contributors.

    WASHINGTON — The early field for the GOP presidential primary race is so unsettled that organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference that began here yesterday brought in a last-minute surprise speaker: Donald Trump. The real-estate mogul launched into an attack of President Obama that sent a positive charge through the crowd.

    The Donald? Why not?

    “You’re hired!’’ shouted someone from the audience.

    “If I run, and I win, this country will be respected again,’’ Trump declared in remarks heavy with the sort of bravado and bombast that has helped make him a household name in America.

    Trump’s improbable flirtation with a presidential bid underscores the high degree of uncertainty over the direction of the primary, a vacuum created in large part by the rift between Republican establishment leaders and the Tea Party movement. Conservatives milling about the convention said none of the dozen or so would-be candidates who are taking turns at the convention podium has demonstrated a clear ability to unify the party, including one of the front-runners in national polls, Mitt Romney. Tea Party activists view the 2008 candidate with distrust.

    “Right now you have 28 people mentioned as presidential candidates — and make that 29 with Donald Trump,’’ said Saul Anuzis, a Republican National Committee member from Michigan.

    Sarah speaks plainly enough; but it looks as though the next election will be something of a cross between a beauty contest and a game show. Maybe Vanna White will spin the wheel, and they’ll pick their candidates that way. By the time I get to vote here in the very late Oregon primary, the field will be reduced to one candidate — for whom I can vote “yes” or “no”, just like back in the USSR.
