Sarah Palin Concerned Romney and the GOP Elite Donít Have the Guts to Fight
A Time For Choosing ^ | May 21, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson

Appearing on Monday’s Hannity, Sarah Palin minced no words by saying nothing was “off the table” when it comes to vetting Barack Obama.

There was a group that wanted to revisit Obama’s past associations, including Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the radical Marxist preacher whose church Obama sat in for 20 years, and now claims was pressured to stay quiet about Obama.

Mitt Romney, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and many other GOP establishment leaders have chastised those who would talk about Wright. Never mind the democrats are already raising money off this issue.

As Sarah notes, nothing can be left off the table. Everything must be fair game. The democrats certainly show no such restraint. With democrats, the candidates, the candidates children, friends, supporters, and so on are fair game. Barack Obama has used his Chicago thug political tactics successfully for years. The only way to beat a guy like this is to go all in.

No one is going to respect Romney or the GOP because they “played nice.” There are no extra points for playing nice. We are at war for the very existence of America, and we need tough, strong leadership that doesn’t flinch in battle.

It’s noted that Sarah wasn’t happy when McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt stopped her from vetting Obama in 2008. Not satisfied with McCain’s defective campaign team, this is when Sarah says she went rogue.

In case you missed it, Stacy Drake covered a Hannity special that featured Stephen K Bannon talking about the failures of the McCain campaign and how Sarah was angry at their weaknesses.

Sean starts out talking about Mayor Cory Booker’s condemnation of Obama, and his subsequent attempts to walk it back. He and Sarah also talk about the teacher in North Carolina who has a heated argument with a student, who asked a question about Obama, after the teacher was trashing Mitt Romney. The teacher claims people went to jail for saying bad things about Bush.

As readers know, that’s not true. In fact Hollywood made fantasy movies about killing President Bush, using actual archival footage of Bush. None of this group went to jail, or were even talked to by Secret Service. They did however win some industry awards.

Sarah says she hopes this teacher, who is currently on paid suspension, isn’t tenured. I wonder why and how people like this ever get hired. Also why teachers are allowed tenure, making them essentially impossible to fire, in the first place.

A lot of topics discussed in this interview.

Sarah says she is going to once again focus on sending Conservatives to the House and Senate this fall. Though she doesn’t mention Romney by name, she says she will help the nominee beat Obama. Once again saying “anybody but Obama.”

Sarah is Right.

Does General Winfield Scott Romney have what it takes to bring down his liberal friends!?!?

History says.......probably not.

I fear you and Sarah are right, Romney has the desire to rip the guts out of his fellow republican competitors but he will play patty cake with Obama.

The man has no backbone nor the will to win at any cost.

I am a big Sarah Palin fan, been so for a while, but with all due respect, if she were so concern, then she should have gotten into the race like MR did.

Sarah can go rogue all she wants now. She does not have the McCain handlers and backstabbers undermining her. She can also team with Rush, Sean and Glenn Beck to forge a hefty new media force against The One and his empty suit.

She is not alone in that regard. Romney will probably be another McCain.

But Romney's past has proved that he is severely conservative and that is enough for him to get the nomination.

Of course, we wouldn’t being having this discussion if she would have had “the guts” to run. Pot, meet kettle.

Yeah, I recall them burning down the Salt Lake City Mormon Tabernacle with women and children still in it ... oh, wait, that never happened! But it did to Sarah Palin! And remember when they went after Mitt Romney’s infant son and young daughters? Ummm, no that was Sarah Palin, too! How ‘bout the time they said he thought Africa was a country and the Queen ran England? Or they dressed someone up to look just like him so they could make it look like he thought he could see Russia from his front porch! Oh, and remember the prominent blogger who claimed Mitt’s youngest son wasn’t really his? Or the high-level GOP campaign staffers who claimed he had a nervous breakdown when videos showed that he was just fine on the day they claimed he had it? Oh yeah, that was Sarah Palin, too!! Or the time a famous gossip novelist moved in next-door to the Romneys to spy on them and peek in their windows? Do I need to go on?

We’ll just have continued crony capitalism with Romney, Sarah. You know that.

She’s right, of course.

Face it, people, no matter how much you are trying to convince yourselves that Romney is acceptable after all, the fact of the matter remains that he is a blithering dunderhead who would rather run down conservative fellow Republicans than socialist Democrats, and who simply doesn’t have the wits to understand what conservatism is really all about, and therefore doesn’t have the tools to actually articulate it effectively.

Romney is a backstabbing loser leading a bunch
of lemmings over the cliff .. with America at stake.

Bishop Romney should pull out now.
Too few will vote for him
and the GOP will lose unnecessarily.

Don't forget about the GOP Establishment outright refusal to support her during the '08 campaign. I doubt they would have supported her Run for the Presidency at all, I think THAT is the Reason she didn't run. The Repubs would have refused to support her if she got it (while screaming at us to support their Democratic approved candidate)

Sarah is a fighter and we will keep on fighting, the GOP is a lost cause now anyway and I don't blame her for not wanting to waste resources on it.

Yep.
If she’s gonna kibitz she should do it leaning against the wall, discreetly;
i.e. she’s probably right about them “not having the guts to fight” but at least Gromitt had the `fire in the belly’ to run.
Yeah, they were eating from the ground up, but still ... chalk your nose or step back from the pool table, darlin’.

The “GOP Elite” not having the guts to fight Obama? Heck, why would they even bother? They seem to have more in common with Obama and his big-government, socially-liberal agenda than those darned icky reform-minded yokels like Palin and the Tea Party folks that populate flyover country.
