Washington DC, May 30, 2011. Former Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain said yesterday that he thinks Palin can win in a race against President Obama in 2012.
“Of course, she can,” Senator John McCain made said on “Fox News Sunday” this morning. “She can. Now, whether she will or not, whether she'll even run or not, I don't know.”
McCain’s comments come on the same day that Palin is kicking off a bus tour throughout the northeastern United States. Palin’s bus tour starts from Washington, where Palin is attending a Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally.
McCain went on to qualify his comment, pointing out that a long road lies ahead before the Republican Party settles on a nominee.
“A lot of things happen in campaigns, Chris,” McCain told FOX’s Chris Wallace. “You remember, I was written off a couple of times and were able to come back. So, there's going to be a roller coaster ride for all of them before we finally arrive at our nominee.”
When asked by Wallace about Palin’s lack of popularity among independent voters, McCain said he’s “never seen anyone as mercilessly and relentlessly attacked” as Palin but pointed out that she also inspires many.
“She also inspires great passion, particularly among Republican faithful.” McCain said.
President Barack Husein Obama, D-Kenya, will have a tough time winning reelection next year. None of his economic or foreign policies have worked, and history will judge him to be a complete failure. Very likely, even worse than Jimmy Carter was.
Palin is just one of many good candidates who can defeat this failed president. The problem for Obama is... every "problem he inherited" he made worse by his inept management and failed policies.
