Sarah Palin Criticizes GOP, Threatens to Form Third Party

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin does not hold back, even (or especially) when it comes to her own party, which she says keeps "backing away from the planks in our platform."

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate, who just rejoined Fox News as a paid contributor, says there may come a time where she looks into forming a third party.

"Remember, these are private parties. No one forces us to be enlisted," she said. "I think there will be a lot of us who start saying, 'GOP, if you abandon us, well, we have nowhere else to go."

Palin, who talked of a "Freedom Party" founded on conservative principles and a "libertarian streak," is particularly incensed by the new immigration reform bill.

She said it was an "absolute betrayal" for Senate Republicans to support the bill that would give a path to citizenship to some 11 million undocumented immigrants.

A total of 14 Republicans backed the legislation, which passed by a 68-32 margin. Its future in the GOP-controlled House is far from certain, however.

As for Sarah Palin's third-party assertions, do you think it's time? Is her more-conservative GOP the right one? And is she the person to lead it?

Could we even see a third party candidate in the 2016 election?

Sarah Palin is a democrat in disguise, as she's splitting the GOP! GOP should oust her! She really is a "nobody" or a "wannabe!"

Why is Sarah Palin even still relevant? Since she quit her post in Alaska, she hasn’t run for public office but acts like a politician who calls her constituents “fans.” What exactly does she do other than essentially proposition her self and image to the highest bidder? Sounds like Sarah is America’s highest paid escort! See how down and dirty she’ll get for the money at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot...

One final thing: When was Sarah Palin EVER relevant...LOL!!! Brandt...have a good one. Peace.

Dear Sarah Palin, you had a porn spoof made about you. One has to behave quite ridiculously in order to get a porn spoof made about them. Thus, she is beyond delusional to think that anyone takes her seriously other than the poor caribou on her hunting grounds.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
