But none of those candidates want to face Sarah Palin in a primary battle. They want her down well before republican primary season starts -- and it has already begun. Mitt Romney has been critical of Sarah Palin for the recent months. Today Mike Hukabee came out saying, “With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin, I think she’s misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do. Michelle Obama’s not trying to tell people what to eat or not trying to force the government’s desires on people. She’s stating the obvious, that we do have an obesity problem in this country.”
The ignorant tea baggers obviously don't care about issues. Over 70% of them believe Sarah Palin is qualified to be president. Surprise? CNN also conducted exit polls on Election Day in some of the states that vote first in the presidential primary calendar. Twenty-five percent of South Carolina Republicans say Palin would be their likely primary choice, followed by Huckabee at 24 percent, Romney at 21 percent and Gingrich at 10 percent.
The NBC/WSJ poll indicates that Obama holds a 20 point lead over Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, who's also considering a bid for the GOP presidential nomination, and has a seven point advantage over 2008 Republican White House candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who appears to be gearing up for another bid.
Last week John Thune came on Fox News and said giving taxes to rich are more important than passing 9/11 bill to support firefighters rushed to Ground Zero on September 11 Attacks. He's just an idiot!
According to the survey, in a showdown with an un-named GOP challenger, 42 percent say they would vote for Obama in 2012, with 39 percent saying they would vote for the Republican.
Presidents poll numbers should go up as he got a lot out of the lame-duck congress, including START treaty and ending DON"T ASK DON"T TELL.
