Unhappy conservatives want Palin as House GOP speaker

Many conservatives are fed up with John Boehner’s performance and looking beyond the House of Representatives for a replacement. For some of them, Sarah Palin would be the answer to their prayers:

Indeed. According to Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, the House Speaker does not necessarily need to be a member of the House.

The vote for House Speaker takes place tomorrow, and while it’s unlikely that Boehner will not be reelected, perhaps he’ll at least take a cue from Palin and grow a stronger spine. Goodness knows our country needs it.

      Obama native?

        I’m surprised they’d laugh. If she was that stupid as the Dems and media make her out to be, then they should be WANTING her to be speaker.

        • idesign2

          Yep..:)

        No, Mark is more of an Obama suppository.

  • GaryTheBrave

    THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!

    • Guest

      Dems everywhere agree with you!

  • Lady 12

    Yes! Sarah Palin! Let’s get some backbone back into the House!
    Would Dems vote in such an election? If not, I don’t see any reason why she wouldn’t have a fighting chance at winning.

  • Firelight

    While I’m not sure Palin would want or accept the job of Speaker this is an idea that I could really get behind. Her time as Governor proves she is a great negotiator who can work with both sides while not caving. She would be a breath of fresh air. If not Palin, I would support Allen West or even Newt again.

    • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

      she would never take the job; it would require showing up every day, every week, every month at an office and having to be disciplined in speaking proper english and accurately retelling history in context, none of which she has done since quitting as Guv. She’s strictly a free lancer, part time campaigner for Tea party candidates (nothing wrong with that); she’s enjoying her $12 million dollars and $1 million per year from Fox Snooze, where she is pigeon-holed and has no influence because she doesn’t know how to work the good old boy’s network there…..plus she’s a DIVA, it’s ALL about her!

      • idesign2

        BS, since when has congress showed up every day, every week, every month?

        • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

          don’t forget the Sunday talk shows…the schedule is full time, even when Congress isn’t in session, the Speaker has to stay in DC and catch and reply to Obama’s lies and straw man arguments daily.

        • Guest

          Then it might be the perfect job for Sarah after all. Then she could be the speaker from her fox news compound and charge the tax payers a per diem for staying in her own house!

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Can’t speak proper English, free lancer, full time campaigner and most definitely DIVA! You are talking about Barry “the Dog Gourmet” Obama, right?

        • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

          comparing Sarah to Obummer? shame on you!

      • Firelight

        I can accept if you disagree with her ideologically but you are grossly ignorant of your facts so therefore you discredit yourself in this discussion.

        You need to step away from the liberal and GOP establishment talking points on her and actually do your research before you speak. Once you do that, I’ll debate her accomplishments and record any day with you but I won’t debate your ignorance.

        You may also want to look into punctuating your really long run-on sentence above. Also, check your spelling too before you try insulting another person’s intelligence.

        I miss the days when true debate was possible. When logic, facts, records, reason and truth were used instead of emotion, hatred, false information, ALL CAPS and exclamation points!!!, sigh…

        • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

          hatred? …everything I wrote is factual, how about that bus tour? how about that sarapc website that was hopelessly out of date before, during and after her aborted (ahem!) bus tour?

          I actually agree with most of her beliefs; limited govt, lower taxes, restore capitalism. She’s made her choices and she should be proud of her accomplishments..BUT, it’s all about her and she hasn’t shown any discipline in taking on a daily “job” of Speakership. Allen West is my choice, but he’s thrown Tea Party people under the bus a few times, he doesn’t have clean hands but he’s better than what’s available.

          • Firelight

            No, you need to research your “facts”. You clearly have them mixed up with your opinion and assumptions.

            Get your facts straight and then I’ll take you seriously.

          • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

            no need to rebut my reasoning and facts with superior reasoning and facts, just name call and throw stones…WITH NO facts at hand.

            Keep using those Obama/Alinksy Rules of Radicals against conservatives…good job Firelight !

          • Firelight

            You need to check your reading comprehension. I have not called you any names or thrown stones at you. I simply told you to check your facts. Yes, use actual facts and not your opinion or assumptions.

            Clearly you would rather redirect and shift the focus on your lack of research and try and accuse me of something I didn’t do to you. Nice job with YOUR Obama/Alinsky tactics. It won’t work though as I know my facts well and I told you when you want to argue ideology or actual records that I will happily do that but I won’t argue over false information and uneducated opinion.

            –quotes of intellectual heavweight ‘Firelight’–

            “I won’t debate your ignorance.” = namecalling

            “hatred” = personal attack

            has the intellectual heavyweight Firelight introduced ANY facts to support the namecalling? NOPE

            “you are grossly ignorant of your facts”

            …luv it! Firelight weights in with NO facts defending Sarah Palin after she resigned and started enjoying her millions of dollars, but takes delight in saying that my facts and reasoning are ….hold ur breath….”.need to step away from the liberal and GOP establishment talking points”

            !!! a true Conservatives4Palin-BOT !! You can spot ’em a mile away, ultra thin skin, no facts or reasoning but loaded with Leftist name calling and “no facts” screeds copy and pasted from the best intellectual basement dwellers of Palin-bots !!

            hear the Palin-bots screech !!

            Again, you display your (wait let me sugar coat it for your delicate state) misguided understanding of English.

            Name calling would be “You ARE ignorant” or “You are stupid”

            I did not call YOU ignorant but your point of view. There is a difference and it starts with maturity.

            Again, you need to look at your own posts with are filled with insults, name calling and immaturity.

            Stop projecting your issues and lack of debating skills onto me. I won’t take the bait. I’m done with you and your immature behavior (yes, I called your behavior immature but notice I didn’t call you that).

            Grow up and then we can have an adult conversation.

            fact: Firelight is ignorant (Firelight presents no facts to counter my reasoning.. Palin-BOT storms away in huff) …

            here’s another Sarah Fact:

            http://sarahpac.com/ is her registered domain. yet she was too cheap to register

            http://sarapac.com/

            http://sarahpac.net

            http://sarahpac.org

            ANY PROFESSIONAL webmaster would have all of these domains registered, including any common misspellings (sara is not a misspelling) and any sound-alikes (sara)

            Palin is not qualified for national leadership, Oh yeah…details matter… (such as domain name registration)

          • Firelight

            You just keep getting yourself worked up into an even bigger tantrum. You amuse me. Thank you for proving my point. You present OPINION only. My opinion differs from yours on whether or not it is necessary to register another domain but again that is opinion. You seem to confuse your opinion with fact.

            Start with learning the difference from facts and opinions. I still stick with my first post to you. I’ll debate you when you want to debate facts and records.

            Thank you for proving my point and that you can only offer opinion, assumptions and then you crash into name calling and insults.

            I’ll happily end this conversation on this note (no huffing or stomping just a big smile). You can keep arguing with yourself.

            Its all about her. that’s what fellow conservative John Ziegler who was her biggest media champion had come to realize . He regrets supporting her and understands he was wrong. .

          • Firelight

            Ziegler is straight-jacket crazy. He wanted a job and Todd Palin told him no. Todd saw what a nut Ziegler was and Ziegler has proven it time and time again since then. He only has sour grapes to go along with his straight-jacket.

            Remember when she was put down at the National Governors Conference? Not a team player after she got in the media spotlight…she has to know the long knives are out for her, so her tactics have to change if she wanted to be considered for national office.

            How about dragging out the non-decision to run for Prez last year? It’s all about her. She showed she was not a team player, a lot of $$ and people stood on the sidelines waiting for her to announce, then it was TOO LATE to make a difference for a Tea Party candidate b4 the gop convention.

          • blueniner

            Palin is perfect, she can do anything she wants and she is above criticism. Gotcha! I’m with the Palin-BOTs now! So, since I favor Allen West over Palin for Speaker, that makes anyone that disagrees with me a ‘racist’. Live with ‘that’, Palin-BOTs! /sarc off

      • http://whatandever.blogspot.com/ Osumashi Kinyobe

        For someone who insists that Mrs. Palin speak what you refer to as “proper English”, you seem incapable of following the basic rules of the English language yourself. You must use capitals at the beginning of every sentence and for every proper noun (or naming word for those with a six-year old intellect). Would you like me to teach you how to spell, too?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gary-Jackson/1316589869 Gary Jackson

        Hey stupid person, As Governor no one put in more hours as Palin. In fact, she’s often described as a workaholic. When Palin took office she had a LONG list of campaign promises and an aggressive legislative agenda, in the three years she was Governor, she fulfilled every single campaign promise, and then some.

        Her own staff had a hard time keeping up with her!

        BTW, when you find another governor in history that got this much done in a single term, or even two, then you can crow. This doesn’t count the incredible things she did as Mayor.

    • Brian In WA

      As an Alaskan resident who lived through her ridiculous tenure, temper tantrums and inability to stick to any job or to speak proper English that everyone understands, or to not create gaffe after gaffe, I have to tell you that you’re living in a dreamworld. If you truly believe that Caribou Barbie is worth anything more than an ignorant sound byte, she is definitely a leader for someone of your caliber. Thankfully, you are only allowed to have one vote.

      • $23629333

        If your description of her “ridiculous tenure” were accurate, her approval ratings – when the McCain campaign approached her to be VP candidate – would not have been as high as they were. My suspicion is that your claim to be Alaskan – like your description of Sarah Palin’s tenure – is nothing but estiercol.

        • Firelight

          They don’t like to deal with facts. Facts get in the way of their hatred.

        • blueniner

          Another disgruntled Obama/Alinskyite that has been hired to spread filth and lies about Palin, they get paid by each line of of hate.

      • Firelight

        Oh let me guess, your name is either Lynda, Shannyn, Andrea or Griffen. There is a small group of regular Palin haters that were on Obama’s payroll and they are the only ones that speak out against her, all of 10 people. Even now, 5 years later it is the same lame, pathetic tiny group of haters.

        You people amuse me with your opinion that simply doesn’t match up with Alaskan public record. Yes, one can look up approval ratings and old articles regarding her time as Gov, as well as, her record. Geez you people seem to forget that fact.

        • blueniner

          Right on, they get paid by the line…….

      • http://www.noneedforastinkingwebsite.com/ dow daytrader

        see, now Wit Ticism, that’s unfair. Sarah has gotten a lot of Tea party people elected, and she was obviously competent as governor, she had an 80% approval rating pre-McCain. After she got her millions she’s a rich housewife and part time Diva, which is fine. She gets to go where she wants, do what she wants and Bristol is getting cuter every year…so there’s quality in them thar genes. So quit the attack Sarah as Guv, she was very good, the record shows. If you have facts to prove otherwise, print them.

  • $35313267

    Palin as Speaker.. That would require creating a new unelected position in government that would be second in line of succession should something happen to POTUS and VPOTUS. We need someone with a mountain more experiece than Palin. I’d expect better ideas from smaller government folks.

      Perhaps that is because Palin has read the Constitution and the stated duties of the Vice President, of course, Biden had no involvement in this latest disaster. Oh wait, I’m pretty sure that Boehner went around Reid to negotiate with Biden directly who represented the Senate side of the bill. Silly him to involve Biden. What was he thinking? /sarc.

      You palindrones crack me up with this idea that she would make Pres Obama uneasy in anyway. 1st of all put her in her proper place, Pres Obama is above her on any and every level. Her time to put up was 2012 but she didn’t,because she doesn’t have the stuff. Nicole Wallace said it in 08 and it still holds true,but i’d like to see her name put up for speaker. That would be the funniest moment on tv.

      No stupid, Palin resigned because Obama’s hand picked Alaska thugs were not only bankrupting her personally, but costing the state of Alaska millions of dollars because BY LAW, the state had to investigate every single bogus “ethics complaint” that Pete Rouse [from the West Wing of the White House] had his Alaska bloggers cook up.

      Once the bloggers started going after Plain’s staff, who, like Palin WAS NOT protected from this crap, though Alaska legislators WERE, she did what was best for her state. Her Lt Governor continued to further her agenda.

      You stupid people disgust me. ALL of the things that Obama, Rouse, and the Alaska Bloggers are WELL documented. If you don’t know the truth it’s either because you don’t WANT to know the truth, or you’d rather slander the Governor instead!

    I’m a conservative who doesn’t want Palin as speaker. While Palin is a good conservative, she’s attracted a cult of personality similar to what Zero and Ron Paul have. I deal with quite a few of them over @ Hot Air. To her biggest fans she is Reagan, Thatcher, and Jesus rolled into one. Were she to be the speaker ,the focus would be on HER-rather than the business of the House and the business of this nation. No thanks.
